I Cried?!?!

Hey guys. It's been a while. Well, I'm quite busy right now since the final exam is just a stone throw away. Wish me luck all right. Thanks in advance.
Well, do you believe if I say I cried? Maybe some do, maybe some don't but the truth is.... Yeah. I cried just now. Why? Because of a GIRL!!! No-lah. Haha. Just kidding. I'm not a cheesy-guy. Maybe....Because of a GUY!!! What? Are you pulling my leg? TOTALLY a NO-NO. Actually, it's because of this book.

Well, as you can see from the title, you can say that this book covers mostly on the leaders of Islam's Movement from overseas and also Malaysia. Dari Mesir, ke Palestin, pergi India, singgah Indonesia, sampai Malaysia dan beberapa lagi negara lain, semua ada. This is the only book that makes me cry without failure. Segala yang ditulis dalam setiap helaian berjaya membuatkan aku rasa sebak dan kadang-kadang buat aku menangis. How can I not when the writer have written the history so nicely. One of the things that I read this evening was about Hasan Al-Hudhaibi's struggle, his family and his brothers(rakan seperjuangan). Who is he actually? Maybe you've never heard of him so let me ask you one question. Ever heard of As-Syahid Hassan Al-Banna? No? Ingat betul-betul. Still can't remember? Hint number one, he's the first leader of Ikhwan Muslimin. Tak ingat lagi? It's okay. This hint will make you remember. Try looking for your al-Mathurat and see who is the compiler? Haa. Now you should remember. Well, so Hasan al-Hudhaibi is the successor of Hasan al-Banna who is leading Ikhwan Muslimin efficiently in the times of chaos. One of his stories that made me cry is during his imprisonment
He asked his friend(Syeikh Abdul Badi' Saqr) when they met, "How many days do you take to finish reading the al-Quran?" Syeikh answered, "Every fifteen days!" Hasan al-Hudhaibi said, "What keeps you from finishing it in three days? Read two constituent(juzuk) of al-Quran after every prayer while you're still in ablution. Remember, this chance will never come again." Touching is it not? Well, another story that made me cry is about his wife Ummu Usamah and his children.
When Hasan al-Hudhaibi was in the jail, a minister of Egypt sent his wife to meet Ummu Usamah to appease her and her children. Ummu Usamah then said "Who told your husband that we are anxious and sad until it troubles you to advice us, calm us and give us glad tidings that Ustaz is safe? Are you trying to tell me and my kids that the punishment has been decided before running the trials? Are you trying to say that his punishment is death? O Saadiyah Hanim, the wife of the noble Egypt's Officials, I implore you nicely to tell this to Minister! Tell him that Hasan al-Hudhaibi leads the Ikhwan Muslimin only after seeing the first leader Asy-Syahid Hasan Al-Banna being kidnapped and killed nefariously and openly in the street. Hudhaibi didn't accept to be his successor except that he waits for the end of his life to be the same as al-Banna. Really, he sold his life to Allah and we sold ours with him for Allah. When it all happens because of Allah's fate, no one can see us except in serenity,peace and happiness. The reason why we leave it all to Allah is because we hope for His reward and we are very happy that we can follow him up as syuhada," Then she turns her head to her children and said, "This is Umi's stance, what about all of you?" All of them answered, "There is not a slight difference between our stance and yours, O Umi." This one is really touchy.  : ,(
So, when I read this, I was thinking.... Why am I so bad? I can't even finish reading the al-Quran in a year and there Syeikh Abdul Badi' Saqr was asked why can't he finish it in there days. Sangat jauh perbezaan antara 3 hari dan setahun. Humm. Why can't I think like his wife? I want to be a syuhada too yet what have I done till this day? Nothing....Nothing.....And nothing....So, I hope all of Muslims and myself will take this as a reminder. It is very hard to be like them since we are not borned in their situation, but at least, let us try to be better. I guess that's all for now. Till next time. Sayonara.
