Hadith of the Update
Narrated by 'Abdullah bin 'Amr,
A person asked Allah's Apostle. "What (sort of) deeds in or (what qualities of) Islam are good?" He replied, "To feed (the poor) and greet those whom you know and those whom you don't know."
[Bukhari. Volume 1, Book 2, Number 27]

Domo. Wah. Finally, I get to update my blog even though it's 4 in the morning. Gila apa agaknya update blog pagi-pagi buta ni kan. I just can't sleep and can't find a better thing to do. I've been wanting to write about this for quite a while.
Do you ever have a friend who is selfish? Tak kisah la sikit ke banyak. I think you do because somehow, I feel that selfish is a part of everyone *no offence.just a humble opinion*. The problem is when the selfishness are too great and causes troubles to people around you. Ever have that kind of problem? Like thinking, "mamat ni la.mintak pinjam barang aku je.maggie pun jadik.otoke." Mesti pernah kan.
Let me tell you a story that I've experienced. Dulu, masa kecik-kecik, memang hamba ni seorang yang sangat kedekut la. Sampaikan ramai yang benci. Mana tak nya. Orang mintak pinjam pensil pun tak nak bagi. LOL. So, when I grew up a bit, I became a...so-so la. Tak kedekut, tak la pemurah pulak. Makin tua, rasanya kedekut tu dah berada di tahap minimum la kot sekarang ni. *tapi takde la sampai nak belanja korang makan pizza.XD* When I was in form 4, I have this motto. It sounds like this, 'Jangan mintak apa-apa dengan aku dan aku pun takkan mintak apa-apa dengan kau.' But I soon discovered that this is quite hard to be done especially when you're in hostel. If you don't want to lose your friends, you cannot do something like that. So, now I modified it to, 'You can ask from me anything from me but I won't ask anything from you.' The problem is, this is the time when people will step on your head. When you always give what people ask without hesitating, benda tu buat sesetengah orang besar kepala. For example, when you eat, you must have water with you right? But your friend here rarely buys his/her own water and always ask from you and your friends. That's fine if he/she cannot afford it, but this one, he/she just want to take advantage from you. Bukannya dia tak mampu beli air tapi dia nak jimat duit, last-last mintak orang punya. What the heaven. Another example, you usually bring your own lunch box to school, and this friend of yours always ask for some food from you. He/She has money but they do not want to spend it. What do you feel? Geram for sure. Rasa macam nak maki laju-laju je. If ada readers yang berperangai macam ni, please stop. I don't think many people will mind if it's borrowing pen, pencil or anything that won't be finished up so fast, but when it comes to food... Jaga-jaga la korang. Of course you can ask for some food when you don't have money, or even when you have money but something is blocking you from getting some food*tambah-tambah lagi korang jarang mintak makanan orang.insyaAllah orang pun tak kisah nak bagi kat korang sikit* The problem is when you always ask for food from someone, there will be a time when they will feel fed up and curses you at your back. Silap hari bulan, dia kata haram makanan yang korang makan tu. Makanan akan jadi daging kita, dan setiap daging yang tumbuh daripada makanan yang haram, nerakalah yang layak baginya.
So guys, two things you need to understand here. First, don't be selfish. Second, don't be so stingy. And if these cases happens to you, please try not to curse or 'haramkan' the food that you gave to that person*i understand how hard that may be sometimes*. That's all for now. Chiao.
