As much as possible I try to make things easy for others. Why? Because I believe when we make things easy for others, in return, Allah will make things easy for us.  Allah’s reward is the great reward. The followings are the hadith and verse taken from the Quran about  making things easy for others.

The Prophet (pbuh) would order his Companions to be easy upon the people. He told Muadh ibn Jabal and Abu Musa al-Ashari when sending them to Yemen;

“Make things easy for the people, and do not make it difficult for them, and make them calm (with glad tidings) and do not repulse them (making them flee).” (hadith recorded by al-Bukhari)

Allah SWT is the all seer of his servants (QS 40:44) and Allah SWT will not burden a soul except within its own capacity (QS 2:286). Righteousness is refraining from inflicting harm and aggression towards others and ourselves. The Quran says: “Cooperate in righteousness and piety, but do not cooperate in sin and aggression.” (QS 5:2)


Just bought a new book entitled Kaizen.  Kaizen is the Japanese method for transforming habits one small step at a time.  I have not read the book and it is still nicely wrapped.  But what intrigues me is that a colleague from Academy of Islamic Civilisation, UTM wrote a quote which has similar meaning on his FB wall.  The quote is

Hidup jangan berlari

Cukuplan kita berjalan

kerana hidup ini bukan perlarian

tapi hidup ini adalah perjalanan

(Credit to PM Dr Ajmain Safar)

Anyone can become angry – that is easy.  But to be angry with the right person, to the right degree, at the right time, for the right purpose, and in the right way – that is not easy.


From the perspective of a parent making a desperate decision in a moment of crisis, it is about nothing other than love

Daniel Goleman, Author of Emotional Intelligence

There is no valuable love than your parents’ love.  Cherish your parents while you can.

“Before you are a leader, success is all about growing yourself. When you become a leader, success is all about growing others.” – Jack Welch

Selfish leaders will destroy the whole organisation/country since they are  blinded by their self interests.

Remember that:

Confidence is silent

Insecurities are loud

Hence, never under estimate people who are quiet.

To handle yourself, use your head

To handle others, use your heart

– Eleanor Roosevelt –

A leader is one who knows the way

goes the way


shows the way

-John C. Maxwell-

Jenis Manusia

Ada 4 jenis manusia:

  1.  Orang yang diam-diam ubi, makin diam makin berisi
  2. Orang yng ikut resmi padi makin berisi makin tunduk
  3. Orang yang seperti ayam bertelur sebiji riuh sekampung
  4. Orang yang seperti lalang tegak berdiri mengikut tiupan angin tiada memberi manafaat kepada manusia.

Kita kena menilai keperibadian seseorang dan lihat adakah dianya bersifat ubi, padi, ayam atau lalang. Janganlah kekuatan ayam berkokok membuat kita alpa dan terlepas pandang pada ubi yang penuh berisi. Dan jangan pulak kerana ketinggian lalang yang tumbuh menegak dan ditiup angin ke kiri dan ke kanan mengaburkan pandangan kita pada padi yang penuh berisi tapi masih tunduk menyembah bumi.

There are two reasons for things to happen either as Tests or Punishments. Both are equally good. The former, if you pass you will get a great reward and the latter, it will wash your sin away.  It is important to stay positive and optimistic no matter what happens.
