The One Eye Theory

Assalamualaikum & hi to all,

my sunday arabic class today was great, i always felt enlighted every and each time i stepped in and out from the class. my teacher has indeed 'poured' water in to my dried brain, and masyaAllah, this kind of thirst relief of spiritual knowledge really made my day, barakallahifihu (may ALlah's blessings be upon him)

he explained in detail after one student posed a question about the dajjal, the mysteriously one eyed person/thing. my teacher says that the dajjal will only 'surfaces' once the environment is perfectly conducive for him to claim his 'throne'. he, the one eyed curly haired man, would ensure that no one is having a pair of eyes unlikely the kind of handicapped he is having. does he want us to be a one eyed person as well? do we have to poke our eye then? read through please :)

i love the symbolism highlighted by my teacher on the function of the pair of eyes. ALlah SWT has created us with perfectly beautiful eyes that see all the beauties and the ugliness, the good and bad, consciously and unconsciously at every second in our daily lives. there is always pairs in everything, whether you like it or not, that is the original function of our eyes, to distinguish what is right and what is wrong in the 'eyes' of the Creator of mankind.

my teacher stressed deeper that, this whole scenario actually brings us to the realization that, we live for the 'dunya' (now) and for hereafter (akhirah). being one eye blind is the best analogy of the perception that there wont be any other lives after death. not just that, the one eye man doesnt recognized the call to return to Allah SWT and being an arrogant ignorant, he (the dajjal) promises the worlds in exchange of everyone following his footsteps.

my teacher advises us to read the first 10 verses in Al Kahfi verse in order to be protected by Allah SWT from the dajjal sparks of evil deeds. he says that confronting dajjal is less challenging than living in his (dajjal) reign. we wouldnt know what we would become during that time. nobody can assures of anything. we might go against our prior islamic principals and being antagonistic by siding the dajjal worshipers. na'uzubillah (may Allah protect us all)

we are not the first aimed/targeted candidates, as the syaitan soldiers has recruited many before us, since Adam & Eve (Hawa) were tricked to disobey ALlah SWT first command of restriction. do you think those syaitan soldiers would stop whispering to our ears and hearts? Alhamdulillah, Allah SWT taught our forefather how to repent, and without His blessings and forgiveness, where would we be now?

i look around me, the mass media, the food, the clothing line, arrggghhhh!!!! arent we trapped in this kind of lives? i dont know about others but at times i felt like 'drowning' in this system. for me, living in a comfort zone without noticing being trapped in this dajjal way of life is really terrifying. its hard to ignore the seduction but its not impossible either, we fight to strive on the right path and we shall be safe, insyaAllah.

i asked my self, is there any R&R along the highway to the heaven/hellfire?
NOPE. its a straight way destination and i pray for the muslims to be firm and steadfast in holding what 'both eyes' is regimented to do.

i am reminding myself, most.

How To Grow Avocado From Seed

Assalamualaikum & hi to all,

just finished my arabic homework and i am really in mood to post something about avocado. its about to grow avocado from its seed.

i read many avocado lovers grumbled about which technique is better than which in getting the root to come out from the seed. so, i intend to do the experiment myself. i named them as METHOD A and METHOD B.

so, you are going to need these items...

few avocados from the supermarket. they are Hass type, from South Africa.
 (i  bought this from our local supermarket , i didnt go to S.Africa haha...)

eat 2 avo, and keep their seeds.

a plastic and used news paper

a plastic cup/glass and toothpick

try to differentiate the head and the bottom of the seed. the one that is shown in the pic above is the bottom.
the root will come out from there
poke the 3 toothpick to the position shown above
place nicely so that the bottom of the seed will sip in the water
put near the window where it is exposed to sunlight. leave it there for 2-3 weeks.
  dont forget to change the water if it gets murky.
most importantly make sure there is no mosquitoes egg hatches! haha..


put the seed on the used news paper
wrap / crumble it with the seed inside
put in the plastic bag/container
fill in some water (tap water is fine)
throw the excess water. we just need the paper to be wet
fold loosely and leave it for 2-3 weeks


after 2 weeks plus, notice the crack, but no root
same duration, it cracked and a healthy root jotting out from it


method B is better. you can place the seed on the soil now, placing the root in the soil. dont forget to water it :)

(sorry no pic of planting it the soil as i havent got the suitable pot for it)

good luck!

Assalamualaikum & hi to all,

i watched 'limitless' movie and i give 5 star for it. its about a man who depends on a pill to sustain his successes achieved throughout a very short period. nice movie, but as a muslim, there is some aspect which i disagree..not to make any critic as it gives no benefit to me raising any.

my point is, everything has a limit and its measurement. i forgot which verse in the Quran that touches this matter, but i dont believe depending on anything beside the Creator, would last long.

Why am i saying this?

just look around you. look at hosni mubarak, nobody would ever thought that he would stepdown in humiliation after all the limitless amount of money 'gained'.

look what happened to ariel sharon, after the thought of the limitless number of killings, he 'rest' in coma condition and God knows what kind of tortures he is experiencing at the moment in his sleeps... he might be screaming of the silent/invisible torment but alas, who would notice? Only the great Punisher Himself can arise him from his vegetable state. do you think he is even having a peaceful rest?

look at the hardcore gays, who think the world has no limit of enjoyment and sexual the end, the cancer cells have been 'instructed' to be self-activated by the Creator, and there they come, AIDS with no mercy. its just a matter of time.

that is some of the real story proofs. we forgot that everything is lent by Allah SWT, thus who do we think we are to even determine the limit of anything?

the only thing that is promised by Allah is when we live to please Allah SWT and die for Him in so many various of ways, then (with His Rahmah-sympathy) the rewards would be Jannah (heaven) which has no limit of what so ever. pls correct me if i am wrong but that is what i heard by some religious speakers.

anyways, i like the ending of the movie where eventually, Eddie Morra stopped taking those pills and became himself, a hardworking politician who sees and knows what is best for him.

a good muslim doesnt need any pill. Allah has planted an extraordinary pill in every lives since the beginning of our creation. You want to know what is it?

the formula is in the Quran. Dig it.

How To Marcot An Avocado Tree

Assalamualaikum & hi to all,

i couldnt believe that at this age, i actually climbed a tree, and its avocado tree! i really want avo trees!

i was so happy to know that my friend is having an avo tree and after seeking his permission, he allowed me to marcot the tree. in no time i climbed the tree, after 30 years not climbing any tree.  

i stopped climbing trees at the age of 12. i was really a monkey who loved to sleep on the tree after school. how i missed climbing trees ;p

lets skip that. so, marcotting. how i did it? first, you are going to need :-

an avocado tree (this is my friend's avo tree. Type : Reed Avocado)
pls ignore the gals hehe..
small plastic bag
ready mixed soil (fertilizer+ash+black soil+normal soil)
rubber band (combine them)

measure about an inch or two and mark it
cut around the stem. not too deep, you can sense the soft skin.
peel it out
like this
put in the plastic bag. if there were small branches on top of this small branch,
you can just wrap using any plastic wrapper
tie tightly at the bottom as shown above.
take some of the mixed soil and put inside the plastic bag
tie on top of it, sealing/closing the bud
leave them for 2-3 months. you will notice some roots come from the stem
seems that i need to pay my friend a visit for the next 2-3 months haha...
i was about 16 feet from the ground. i didnt mean to be a hardcore climber here, it was just, there was no young stem near the lower part of the tree. 

i cant wait to see the roots coming out :)

dont try this if you are not used to climbing. safety first, find a ladder :)

(this writing is to be continued - after 3 months)
