Memo untuk Ateis

Sahabatku, jika kau rasa Tuhan itu tidak wujud, anggaplah Tuhan itu penting walhal kau mengagumi ciptaan sesuatu, bagaimana boleh kau merendahkan penciptanya?

Sedar dan kaji.

Sayonara Ramadhan

Bulan Ramadhan 1438H baru sahaja meninggalkan kita dan Ramadhan kali ini merupakan Ramadhan yang paling bermakna dalam hidup aku. There are a lot of things happened around the globe but should I worry about it, no?

Dalam dunia yang semakin sempit ni, aku meratah apa sahaja yang melepasi aku. Tetapi tidak semua aku hadam dan serap, ada yang aku buang dan timbus. Ada banyak lagi yang datang, hati hati, kerana setiap satu datang dengan beban yang berbeza. Semoga berjaya!

Love, Arif.

Perubahan

Perubahan bukannya sentiasa ke arah yang lebih baik, tetapi boleh jadi sebaliknya. Walau bagaimanapun, yang dikatakan "perubahan ke arah lebih baik" juga tidak semestinya baik, ada yang terpesong akidahnya, ada yang terlalu terbuka fikirannya dan menjauhi agama. Aku menilai dari sudut Islam, agama yang mulia, maka pasti dari sudut pandangan aku mempelajari Islam, bermazhab Syafi'e, berakidah Ahli Sunnah Wal Jamaah itu adalah perubahan yang terbaik.

Kelalaian dalam menuntut ilmu agama sebenarnya punca terjadinya seorang Islam itu mudah mempercayai tiadanya Tuhan, merasa agama itu merosakkan malah tidak menolak hubungan sejenis. Agama itu untuk diselami, dihayati. Ajarlah anak menuntut agama sebelum kamu memaksa mereka menuntut ilmu dunia, kerana agama itu indah dan tidak menerima agama itu rosak lagi merosakkan.

Jauhilah pemikiran yang menjauhkan anda dari agama, menolak bermazhab dan berakidah yang salah. Berdoalah, sementara pintu taubat masih terbuka seluasnya.

Love, Arif.

New things to learn

Been reading for quite some time. Reading is soo tiring when it comes to academic journals. I came across many terms which I don't have any idea about it (even if I tried to go for another sources, it showed another term haha) and one of them is "cospeciation". By the way, it is an interesting journey since I jumped into molecular biology, and perhaps, evolutionary biology. Learning nowadays, should be a quick process. I read and do laboratory works at the same time (sebab nak GOT). Good luck!

Love, Arif.

Sayonara 2016

Happy new year! I don't understand what is so special about celebrating new year except for fireworks and public holiday. I understand that the number changed but I don't feel it, it is just not too special to me (or maybe any occasions had not been really special to me anymore). Anyway, it has been good year, lots of ups and downs, lots of people leaving and continue their life as usual with some of us got married, congratulations and I wish you all a happy family.

I am currently working on my literature review (not a good start for 2017) because I need to read, re-read and most importantly, to write. Well at least I have spent at least 2 hours a day to do this whole thing at night because I spend the whole day in the lab. It's hard I know.

Love, Arif.

Keep going

It is just the matter of time. I can't lie to myself anymore. I am sad, truly and I always speak to myself that everything will get better sooner or later but things go bad one after another. What hope left for me? Right then, I will have to continue to say yes, everything will fall into place inshaAllah.

Love, Arif.

Chapter One

Hi. I just had enough with life since I last posted an entry in my blog. My thought about beautiful life without blogging is a mistake. My world should be written and being told in way I feel comfortable with because writing is an escape.

Just before I write about anything, I should remind myself that I am not a good writer nor the best story-teller. I don't know what I really want in life. Even I have what I wanted but I still don't understand why I want it in the first place. Knowing this is the way I should be in, a good start I hope.

Love, Arif.
