DALAM PENGETAHUAN-NYA

Tidak sehelai daun pun yang gugur melainkan Dia mengetahuinya (pula), dan tidak jatuh sebutir biji pun dalam kegelapan bumi dan tidak sesuatu yang basah atau yang kering, melainkan tertulis dalam kitab yang nyata (Lauh Mahfuz) (Tafsir Al Mishbah, Jilid 11, 2002:119)

PERENANG DI LAUT BERGELOMBANG

Apabila otak dipertajam dengan cabaran intelektual; kemampuan kreatif dicabar dengan persoalan yang rumit; maka nanti akan menjelma kegigihan seorang perenang di tengah laut yang bergelombang, yang harus memilih antara tenggelam lemas atau sampai ke pantai, walaupun sangat penat. Sesiapa yang memilih untuk sampai ke pantai, dia akan sampai dengan selamat. Ketika itu setiap kali dia melihat laut dan ombak, dia bersyukur kerana laut dan ombak itulah yang memberinya kejayaan. Itulah hikmah yang Allah Ta'ala berikan. Telah berkata Imam Ghazali, Apa juga yang Allah kurniakan kepada kamu, itulah yang terbaik buat kamu.

Hanya orang yang sabar menang dalam semua perjuangan.

YANG KECIL ITU BESAR

burung yang kecil, 
tetapi di dalam dirinya terangkum seluruh cakerawala,
kerana di situ tanda rahmat dan kasih sayang Allah Ta'ala 
kepada semua ciptaan-Nya

EL ATLAL (THE RUINS)

My heart, don't ask where the love has gone
It was a citadel of my imagination that has collapsed
Pour me a drink and let us drink of its ruins
And tell the story on my behalf as long as the tears flow
Tell how that love became past news
And became another story of passion
I haven't forgotten you
And you seduced me with lips dripping sweet pleas
And a hand extending towards me like a hand stretched out 

through the waves to a drowning person
But where is that light in your eyes?
 

My darling, I visited your nest one day as a bird of longing singing my pain
You've become self-important, spoiled and capricious
And you inflict harm like a powerful tyrant
And my longing for you cauterized my ribs (soul or insides)
And the waiting was like embers in my blood
 

Give me my freedom, release my hands
Indeed, I've given you yours and did not try to retain anything
Ah, your chains have bloodied my wrists
I haven't kept then nor have they spared me
Why do I keep promises that you do not honor?
 

When will this captivity end, when the world is before us?
He is far away, my enchanting love
Full of pride, majesty and delicacy
Sure-footed walking like an angel with oppressive beauty and rapacious glory
Redolent of charm like the breeze of the hills
Pleasant to experience like the night's dreams
I've lost forever the charm of your company that radiated brilliantly
I, wandering in love, a bewildered butterfly, approached you
And between us, desire was a messenger and drinking 

companion that presented the cup to us
Had love seen two as intoxicated as us?
 

So much hope we had built up around us
And we walked in the moonlit path, joy skipping along ahead of us
And we laughed like two children together
And we ran and raced our shadows
And we became aware after the euphoria and woke up
If only we did not awaken
Wakefulness ruined the dreams of slumber
 

The night came and the night became my only friend
And then the light was an omen of the sunrise and the dawn was towering over like a conflagration
And then the world was as we know it, with each lover in their own path
Oh sleepless one who slumbers and remembers the promise when you wake up
Know that if a wound begins to recover another wound crops up with the memory
So learn to forget and learn to erase it
 

My darling everything is fated
It is not by our hands that we make our misfortune
Perhaps one day our fates will cross when our desire to meet is strong enough
For if one friend denies the other and we meet as strangers
And if each of us follows his or her own way
Don't say it was by our own will
But rather, the will of fate

INTIFADAH

Kita mulakan intifadah kita benar-benar kerana Allah
supaya apa juga yang kita buat -
boleh membantu kita mencapai reda Allah
bukan kutukan dan celaan Allah.

KEINDAHAN KEBENARAN

Jangan tangisi wajahmu yang tetap akan layu apabila tiba waktunya;
tangisilah kekaburan pemikiranmu yang mengelirukan dirimu dan orang lain.

Yang benar tetap indah, tidak boleh disentuh oleh masa dan zaman,
terus cerah di dalam hati dan pemikiran walaupun sudah beribu tahun dicetuskan.

Tuju ke arah itu, 
bukan menangisi wajahmu yang tetap akan usang.

WISDOM

Learn from other people's mistakes, 
by not making the worse mistakes yourself. 

That is wisdom. 

Learn to be wise, 
and that needs tolerance and patience.

hanya orang yang sabar -

TANGGA ILMU

Dalam mencari ilmu, 
tidak ada lif yang boleh ditekan-tekan
ke tingkat mana saja yang anda mahu
Anda harus mendakinya sendiri, 
tidak ada pilihan 
Pendeta Za'ba, Tangga Bacaan 


Rasakan lelah dan mengah
Walau susah dan payah-
Kamu tetap tiba ke puncak ilmu,
Jika ada dalam dirimu-

sabar, tekun tanpa jemu
