Why Are You So Inferior??

Assalamualaikum wbt. Alhamdulillah, today I still have been given from Almighty Allah the ability to hold my pen and write something again for all of you. It will be ‘Mission & Vision’ as our discussion topic. Well, as we know today, the biggest world economic ruler is not among us, i.e. Islamic country. Yet it is our most powerful and inhuman enemies as the rulers, who else if not USA & Britain. So, don’t you ever think what will happen to our next generations if neither we never attempt to discharge them nor to against them. Surely, I knew that you’ll say “How can?? We are so small, weak and inferior countries.” Well, I got the answer from my Sifu Dr. Tengku Asmadi while I was attending his lecture at MAP. So, what’s it???

Have the courage to continue your reading.

To conquer world economy, it is not a small matter but it’s still possible if we know the way to conquer it. The key is “U.K.”. Believe in me that you can conquer almost everything if you have the skeleton key which is “U.K. = Useful Knowledge”. Prophet Muhammad s.a.w. had once said, “If you want to success in the world, you should have knowledge, if you want to success in the hereafter you still should have knowledge and if you want to success in the world and the hereafter you MUST have knowledge.” That means knowledge is everything. But…

But the problem might rise when it comes to the time to learn, to study and to gain knowledge. This is because most of us (Muslims) especially Malays are too lazy to give some effort for their own good. They are too pampered and at last become (I’m sorry to say…) “RUBBISH!” They expect they will get everything they want as easy as ABC without sacrifice something. The main reason they become like this is they have NO MISSION AND VISION. I’m very sure if you ask some of us about what they want to achieve and to get by 10 years from now they cannot answer it easily even if we give them 24 hours to think about it! It’s a FACT!

As I’m here not to babbling around and not to beat around the bush, it is better if I talk straight to the point and discuss with all of you on how to solve this BIG MATTER.

  1. Take a few of papers and a pen. Find a quiet and comfortable place for you to “muhasabah”.

  1. Think about what you want to be and to achieve by 10 years from now. Write it in sequence (from 1st year to the 10th year). Write as much as you wish.

  1. You think about it and write it without thinking of obstacles you will have to face in order to achieve it. Think like you’ll get everything you wish.
  2. Take your time to ponder. It doesn’t matter even if it will take more than 24 hours for you to really assure of what you want. The most important thing is it is never too late to ponder about it even if you’re 30 year-old now. At least, you’ll know and understand yourself better.

  1. After that, you have to be a new person because now you have your own mission to be completed. Once you write your missions on paper, and keep it safely it means you already promised to yourself that you must be a motivated and very determined person to achieve your missions no matter how much obstacles you have to face. KEEP YOUR PROMISE!

  1. Bear in mind, Allah had reminded us twice in Surah al-Insyirah (1st – 8th verses) translated in English;

O Prophet! Have We not expanded your breast for you[1]

and relieved you from the burden[2]

which weighed down your back,[3]

and exalted your fame?[4]

Surely, with every difficulty there is relief.[5]

Surely, with every difficulty there is relief.[6]

Therefore, when you are free from your daily task, devote your time to the labor of worship[7]

and turn all your attention towards your Rabb.[8]

At last but not least, if you have something that you are hesitate or do not know, please have your pleasure to take some time and read and learn from Al-Quran and Sunnah. They are the best guides for us. Alhamdulillah, we are Muslims.

That’s all for now. See you again in the next discussion. Be pleased to give me your feedbacks and great suggestions. Assalamualaikum w.b.t.

“May Almighty Allah guide us to the right path.”

P.S. Please paste the papers that you have used to write your missions and visions at the place that you will easily to look at it everyday. It will works just if you give your very best effort with ‘tawakal’.



  1. It's really inspiring!
    Good job! =)

  2. I agree with your opinion, Hafizah! Or is it from your sifu? Either way I agree with that. We Malays are always lazy. And too pampered. D:

    But Alhamdulillah I start to see things clearly starting this year. I had a major improvement from inside. I hate to be lazy. Because lazyness aren't going to get me anywhere but the dumps. I have big visions/ideals for my future. I see everything in a positive aspect first. I even started to develop a mature-way of seeing things. The point is, I was very different from the old me. Sometimes I even asked myself if I am being "myself" now. But then again, this kind of improvement is good isn't it?

    Plus, your blog update this time just insipired me and made me even stronger ^^! Thank you very very much! See you at class tommorow, hahah~~


  3. You're most welcome, Fatihah! =D
    Alhamdulillah, at least I can help someone to be stronger and making self-improvement day by day.

    We're getting old so it's a very good thing if we can think in a mature-way. If you're interested to know more about self-help program you're welcome to visit my Sifu Dr. Tengku Asmadi's website. Just click the link on my page titled "Sifu Dr. Tengku Asmadi". I think he's the BEST MOTIVATOR I ever met. You can see the difference if u attend his lecture. =)

    Btw, thanks for your comment! It makes me want to share my thoughts more. May Allah bless you, Fatihah. Amin. ^~!

  4. Wow that sounds amazing. I guess you did attend Sifu Dr. Tengku Asmadi's motivation sessions eh? Niceee. I wish I could go with you as well. ;)

    You're welcome, I don't mind. I have different views in things, so it's really interesting to know others' views too! May Allah bless you~
