#humanswithrahmah Series: More than words – Amat Family Charity Project

Salaam friends of learnislam! As we were busy preparing ourselves towards the end of Ramadan last week, we bumped into people who were busy preparing and doing things for others instead. We had the chance to talk to Farid Hassan - the head for this year's Amat Family Charity Project's (AFCP) annual Batam Charity Iftar held last 10-11 June. The charity project has been running for 5 years by a family so passionate in giving back to others less fortunate. Below is our short interview with Farid: 1) Hi Assalaamu’alaikum Farid, firstly tell us more about yourself. Waalaikumsalam. My name is Farid Hassan....

#humanswithrahmah series: Wheel you play?

Salaam friends of learnislam! Recently we managed to have a short conversation with an NTU undergrad in Sports Science & Management, Muhd Saufy Abdul Karim, 24, about how sports can also spread rahmah and bring people together - regardless of age, gender or even physical mobility. After being introduced to Wheelchair Basketball last year, Saufy is now an advocate of the much less known sport. Below is a short interview I had with him: Hi Assalaamu’alaikum Saufy, firstly tell us more about yourself. Waalaikumsalam .  I just completed my third year of studies in NTU.

Jangan Sampai Kufur dalam Kefakiran

Mengumpul kekayaan di dalam Islam USTAZ MOHD KAMAL MOKHTAR ISLAM tidak menghalang umatnya untuk mengumpul harta. Malah jika matlamat dan cara mengumpul kekayaan itu tidak melanggar batas-batas syara’, ia amatlah dituntut oleh Allah sesuai dengan sarananNya di dalam Surah Al-Jumuah ayat yang ke-10 yang bermaksud, “Kemudian setelah selesai sembahyang, maka bertebaranlah kamu di muka bumi, dan carilah apa yang kamu hajati dari limpah kurnia Allah, serta banyakkanlah ingatan kepada Allah (dalam segala keadaan), supaya kamu berjaya di dunia dan di akhirat.” (Al-Jumuah:10) Berdasarkan ayat di atas, dapat difahami bahawa tiada halangan bagi umat Islam untuk mengumpul harta dan kekayaan, bahkan...

Jangan Jadikan Ramadan Bulan Pembaziran Makanan

USTAZAH SAIDATUNAH NAFISAH MOHAMED IBRAHIM BULAN Ramadan dikenali juga dengan musim beribadah untuk umat Islam. Maka kita akan lihat ramai antara kita yang berlumba-lumba mencari pahala. Pada bulan Ramadan juga kita akan dapati ramai umat Islam yang berpusu-pusu ke masjid. Masjid-masjid di seluruh dunia akan dipenuhi dengan umat Islam khususnya untuk beriktikaf, solat berjemaah dan bertarawih. Di satu aspek yang lain, tanpa kita sedari, secara tidak langsung bulan Ramadan seolah-olah telah menjadi bulan pesta makan untuk sebahagian kita. Pada bulan ini orang ramai berpusu-pusu juga ke bazar Ramadan, membeli bermacam-macam juadah untuk berbuka. Ada juga mereka yang berbuka secara ‘buffet’...

Manfaatkan Ramadan Jalin Semula Silaturahim yang Terputus

USTAZ MUHAMMAD FAMINALLAH ZAINUDDIN TERDAPAT pelbagai kebaikan yang boleh kita lakukan bagi merebut ganjaran di bulan Ramadan. Perkara mudah yang sering kita terlepas pandang namun besar ganjarannya adalah bersilaturahim. Dalam interaksi kita dengan orang lain boleh sahaja terjadi salah faham. Ianya boleh membuat jalinan persaudaraan menjadi tidak harmoni. Bermula dari salah faham inilah yang sering mengakibatkan dua orang yang pada awalnya saling menyayangi antara satu sama lain, menjadi renggang, jauh dan akan mengakibatkan kekakuan yang tidak baik dalam perhubungan. Interaksi persaudaraan dan persahabatan akan menjadi hambar. Tidak akan ada lagi kerinduan, sebaliknya yang ada adalah kekecewaan dan kebencian. Bahkan keadaan...
