the paper with invisible values


there's so much confusion revolving around money.
  • how was the current monetary system was initially implemented?
  • if us (the rest of the world) are really dependant on the US Dollar, then what does the US dollar depent on? surely it(the Us dollar) cannot be be stable by itself, right?
  • why in the IMF articles, GOLD (dinar) cannot be used ad a method of transaction, despite the fact that for 1400 years of Islamic empire, such currency (DINAR-gold & DIRHAM-silver ) has maintained the sustainability of its economy?
well, these are just 3 out of thousands of questions still remain unanswered regarding the International Monetary System. The system that makes the rich becomes richer, and the poor becomes much much more poorer.

I was just finished reading "Dinar Book" by an Islamic scholar, Sheikh Imran Hosein. The e-book is downloadable at the following link:

Better read it. No, MUST READ IT. A thought provoking information, yet short and simple enough to be easily understood.

deceptions. lies.

A famous writer once said:
“Naturally the common people don’t want war; neither in Russia, nor in England, nor in America, nor in Germany. That is understood. But after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine policy, and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. …Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is to tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country.”

Another famous leader was also quoted to have said that:
“In the size of the lie there is always contained a certain factor of credibility, since the great masses of the people…will more easily fall victim to a great lie than to a small one.

In one of the hadiths that I learned in primary years, I remember our beloved Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) said that in the end times, Jews and Christians will be divided into 72 groups. While us, the Muslims, will be divided into 73 groups, and only 1 group remain in the true path (correct me if i'm mistaken).....

The main point is (regardless of how many groups we're divided into), how we would ever identify which one is the true group? I stumbled upon this confusion when I was looking for materials for my Islamic Education coursework. I pick the title "Islam & Democracy". However, things got really hair-wired when different groups were pointing fingers to each other. It seemed like truth is invisible and intangible. You can't see it, nor you can't feel it.

Now there's a purpose of learning Theory of Knowledge......

Nevertheless, what I know and still believe is the truth, is the al-Quran & Hadiths.
By following guidelines in those devine teachings, only then I can find THE TRUTH.

and the rest is, I shall say that
WALLAHU 'ALAM............

Lagu Teristimewa:

KepadaMu kekasih
Aku berserah
Kerana ku tahu
Kau lebih mengerti

Apa yang terlukis di cermin
Pada wajah ini
Apa tersirat di hati
Bersama amali

KepadaMu kekasih
Aku bertanya
Apakah Kau akan
Menerimaku kembali

Atau harus menghitung lagi
Segala jasa dan bakti
Atau harus Kau campakku kesisi
Tanpa harga diri

Dan hanya padaMu kekasih
Aku tinggalkan
Jawapan yang belum
Yang bakal aku nantikan
Bila malam menjemputku lena beradu

KepadaMu kekasih
Aku berserah
Jiwa dan raga
Jua segalanya

Apakah kau akan menerima
Penyerahan ini
Apakah kau akan menerimaku
Dalam keadaan begini
