It was on Husnul Khatimah.
I was overwhelmed (floored, literally).
I seek your mercy. Amiin.

- Have I done the Tarawih solat every night without fail?
- No. of times Tahajjud solat is done at night
- No. of times other sunat prayers are done - Dhuha etc.
- Progress so far in recitation of the Qur'an
- Reading to improve knowledge on Islam
- Ceramah attended/listened to
- Zikir, and do'a
- How much have I given for sadaqah and fisabilillah
- Good deeds done to my parents, family, friends and others.
That's a long list already. The big question whether I have achieved any of them?
I have to admit that I've still got a long way to go.
How weak I am, oh ALlah. I pray that You give me the strength and iman to undertake these responsibilities. And also ALlah, give the same strength to my beloved parents and members of my family -- my wife and my children.

Rasulullah SAW says:
"Sungguh telah datang kepada mu bulan yang penuh barakah, di mana ALlah mewajibkan kamu berpuasa, di saat dibuka pintu-pintu syurga, ditutup pintu neraka, dibelenggu syaitan-syaitan, dan di mana dijumpai satu malam yang nilainya lebih dari seribu malam.
Maka barang siapa yang tidak berhasil beroleh kebaikannya, sungguh tiadalah ia akan mendapatkan itu buat selama-lamanya"
(Riwayat Ahmad, Nasa'i dan Baihaqi)

The death of Mohd Rafi Ameer a trainee at the Cheneh Cemerlang camp in Kemaman last Saturday is said to be the twentieth since the National Service was started by the government.
I can just hear the defensive mode of the people in charge getting into overdrive here: “death occurs everywhere”… “the safety and interests of trainees are always on the top of our mind”…“some trainees do not properly declare the sickness that they have” etc. etc.
The truth is, we parents are being taken for a ride – and sometimes even – taken for fools, I might add.
And I’m talking from experience, here. For, my daughter Sakinah went through an ordeal herself at the National Service camp in Pasir Puteh, Kelantan. It was an experience which made me feel betrayed, and one which moved me to write to Malaysiakini in March of this year.
You see, when I encouraged her to go I was confident that she would be well taken care of. After all, these are teenagers we’re talking about. Hardly the G.I. Joes or Janes. But nothing could be farther from the truth – well, at least not at that Pasir Puteh camp, anyway.
The dinning hall was so filthy that the local authority had it sealed (as in closed down!). The equipments for training were next to non-existent.
But the saddest part is, a trainee girl from Cheras (staying not far from our place, actually) died in a bathroom. Whatever happened to her that fateful night, nobody really knows until today. I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s being conveniently forgotten.
Please buck-up, the powers that be. You are gambling with the lives and safety of our children! Would you do the same with your children?
