Usrah on Umrah

Hey there kiddos,

Addoii, this morning Aunty Z kena pukulan kacang kuda rebus from last night's Usrah pot-luck. Had to "go" 4 times already but still feeling the fullness in the tum. But Aunty needs to de-tox anyway, so it's alright.

Waaah, the food last night was gorgeous, Mak Cik Awi brought her usual delicacies: sambal goreng jawa, rendang trio (daging, hati and limpa), and kuah dhall; not to mention other contributions - fruits, trifle (without the cake), murtabak, bubur jagung, pulut panggang, and Aunty J's dinner spread - rice, begedel, asam pedas, telur dadar, vege, keropok. SCRUMPTIOUS!

You all should have come, good dinner and good learning as well.

Kiddos, the 3 bros and their Mum are going on Umrah, so Ustaz went through with us some pesanan on proper conduct whilst on Umrah, which he translated directly from this Arabic kitab. Just to share:


Hukum Umrah adalah WAJIB sekali dalam seumur hidup selepas haji atau bergandingan dengan haji.

Kebaikan Umrah mengikut hadith Nabi SAW - "akan dapat menghilangkan kefakiran dan menghapuskan dosa seperti hilangnya karat apabila besi dipanaskan".

  1. Pasang niat dengan betul - kerana ibadat kepada Allah (bukan shopping / melancong)
  2. Banyak bertaubat nasuha dan beristighfar
  3. Membanyakkan ibadat umrah dan tawaf sunat
  4. Menjaga adab dan etika sepanjang perjalanan
  5. Belajar dan faham hukum-hakam
  6. Bawa bekalan seperti ongkos secukup-cukupnya dan berpada-pada
  7. Perbanyakkan sedeqah yang termampu - hadith: "Tidak berkurangan rezeki seseorang yang rajin bersedeqah".
  8. Banyakkan bantu orang sekadar mampu.
  9. Hiasi diri dengan akhlak yang baik
  10. Jaga mulut dari cakap kotor, buruk sangka, mengumpat, fitnah
  11. Mengawal pandangan mata daripada perkara maksiat
  12. Jauhi perkara haram
  13. Elak dari kesesakan
  14. Jauhi dari pertelingkahan
  15. Perbanyakkan berfikir dan muhasabah diri
  16. Perbanyakkan zikir dan doa - "doa tidak ditolak untuk musafir haji dan umrah"
  17. Perbanyakkan amal ma'aruf dan nahi munkar dan lain-lain yang sunnah
  18. Elakkan perbuatan dengan terburu-buru
  19. Jangan dengan sengaja melakukan kesalahan
  20. Kembali dengan Umrah yang mabrur iaitu dengan perubahan positif


Aiits - macam tip-tip untuk hidup sepanjang zaman




Let's all wish Aunty J and Along, Ali and Arez all the best in their journey, take care guys and Umratun Mabroor.

Hi Paula, I'm back to normal, thank you. It's the malaysian thing, isn't it? Everything seems to revolve around food!
