Handing over

Our friend and long time surau going guy Sdr Fakhrurazi Abd Sayuti (and his family is always at the surau at most prayer times with him) is leaving, he has been transferred by his employer to Kota Kinabalu, Sabah. We wish him (and his family) a good trip and a good service in Kota Kinabalu.

While with the surau he had been a very active member, the one to be relied upon for making arrangements for 'overseas' Ustaz.

Now Sdr Muhammad Nizar Zulkifli will take over his duties. Photo showing handing over of 'check' by Sdr Fakhrurazi (in black) to Sdr Nizar (in red).

When he come back to Semanjung, ............ Sdr Fakhrurazi, please be with us (at the surau) again.

Transition year dua (doa)

The transition between (30 Zulhijah) year 1429 Hijriah and (1 Muharram) 1430 Hijriah. In Muslim lunar calender the day transition is when Asar (sunset prayer time) ends and Maghrib (dusk prayer time) begins, unlike the Christian solar calender.
And at the end of that particular Hijriah year, and also at the beginning of the incoming Hijriah year, Muslims are encouraged to do dua, to thank Allah for the last year and to implore to Allah that the incoming year should be a better year (that is what that dua is all about) for self and family and for all Muslims.
The videos are taken at a mesjid in AU5, Lembah Keramat (neighbouring Wangsa Maju), Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia (on 28 Dec. 2008), before and after the Maghrib prayers. (on 28 Dec 2008)

The year end dua.


The incoming year dua.

Ladies prayers section

I prayed my Zohor prayers at the new Mesjid at Petaling Jaya Old Town, Selangor, Malaysia today. Its a beautiful mesjid, maybe because its new, with new design and facilities.

However I observed that the ladies prayer section, at the back of the men's prayer hall, has no curtain or any enclosure at all except for a notice saying that its the ladies prayer section, the area enclosed by just rope enclosures. Its something very new (at least to me) in Malaysia. Normally the ladies prayer section are enclosed by movable wooden panels or opaque curtain (I am not sure whether such enclosure tradition is just an old Malaysian practice or a tradition by the Prophet PBUH).

Ustaz are also mortals.

Ustaz/es have to survive. And we 'listeners' need to help them. The knowledge they pass on to us 'listeners' are valueless, expensive and no where else can 'listeners' like us get them in the same environment as in Surau An-Naim.
And Ustaz/es have to survive. They are also mortals with happiness, sadness, family and children, and many also have schools to look after (in some cases, where they teach and sometinmes support) students. They give tazkirah at odd hours, and maybe without rest for a few days whilst travelling outstation.
Its their vocation, and for the (such beneficial) institution to survive we need to support them. Give them whatever we can (afford) and buy goods (books) from them when they exhibit them.
Give them all the moral and financial supports when and where we can.

The surau collects donations, and these are voluntarily given by the surau regulars by placing whatever cash each can afford in Chubb safe provided, by placing whatever donations through a slit made especially for the purpose on the top of the safe, one such safe on the verandah and another in the ladies section. Once upon a time bad hats used to 'fish' for such cash through the slit on top of the safe. So the Surau Committee decided to make the slit smaller to reduce such 'fishing'. Still some bad hats do the 'fishing', I supposed not so successfully now. They choose a good time to do the 'fishing', usually on a Friday afternoon after the Friday prayer (no Friday prayer is held in the surau, Fridays prayers are held at designated mosques only, the surau is very lonely at that time). But they soon got found out by the neighbouring residents. They are not apprehended, for fear of bodily harm to the one trying to apprehending them, but Police Reports are made.
We are lucky that we have lost only minor items, such as microphones and some shoes (during prayer times), but other than those we have been minimally disturbed.
We can not really stop such thievery as the surau is not guarded 24 hours a day. We just have to be aware of such happenings.

Some youtube videos.


I am outstation untill after the Eid ulAdha (Hari Raya Haji) week days, i.e mid Dec. 2008. While surfing the internet, I came across a collection of some very interesting youtube videos (usrah & tazkirah) which I thought I want to share with my Surau AnNaim regulars.
