Reflect

Assalamualaikum

last weekend, i emceed a fashion show (for ladies, mind you naughty boys) called Reflection.
honestly, i don't know how it went because i was the one talking and hanging around backstage, trying my utter best to repel my nerves. if it was me watching the show, probably i can tell how it went.
but from what a lot of people said, it was good. alhamdulillah =)

it was my first time emceeing events like this. i've done emceeing before, tapi memang fully scripted la. diri belakang podium pastu baca jeeeee. easy peasy lemon squeezy. making videos is way easier! cakap depan camera sorang2 as if i cakap dengan the whole world! and yang best nya, i boleh edit and re-take kalau i messed up! haha!
but this time around i kena jalan sambil cakap, kena announce itu ini and fill up awkward silent moments. nyeh.

i don't know how hosts/presenters/emcees do that effortlessly.
tabik hormat!

i only hope i delivered my best. i don't have pics because i didn't give my camera to anyone and i don't think people wanna take pics of me pun.
oh and i know there're guy readers here so i takmo bagi korang opportunity to tengok perempuan showcase baju atas badan mereka. not from my blog anyway. their badan is not for me to tayang free free. =p

just wanna say, it was a great experience on my part, the designers have shown their creativity at best, and the event was hopefully entertaining for all guests =D
shout out to AmmaraHijabi & the Insiders for trusting me to be the emcee for their event!!

enough about the show!

just wanna share something i've learnt last night.

when performing your solat, please try to slow down and recite the surahs properly. kita ada something called makhraj. tengok sini for reference. kalau salah sebut or tinggal huruf or salah tajwid, the meaning might be different. maka, tak betullah surah anda baca. maka rugi lah solat anda.. sayang kan? praying 5 times a day won't mean much kalau surah yang ada 4,5 ayat jadi satu je (sebab baca laju2).

so sabar dalam melakukan solat.

pastu, niat kena betul. ni fundamental. and then takbiratul ihram jangan tinggal. sebutlah "Allahuakbar" and remember it's meaning: Allah The Almighty. girls are encouraged to say it too but not out loud! asal diri sendiri boleh dengar, ok la tu. Allah is Mighty, we shouldn't be scared to admit that. =)

lastly, bila tahiyyat awal and akhir, jangan la baca laju laju! sabarrrrrrrrr~
sebab again, kalau salah sebut, salah makhraj, salah tajwid, mungkin maksud jadi lain.

please read up on Rukun Solat if you want to know more on do's and don'ts' when performing prayers.
and do share if you want here! or in your blog or wherever la! dalam Islam, sesama manusia, tak perlu lah kedekut ilmu =)

ps: ini lunch hour post. mueheheheee =p

Have a great day ahead!

peace.

Jazakumullahkhayr for sharing this :) And may Allah grace you for choosing not to expose photos of those beautiful ladies.

I am not a follower but I would visit your blog from time to time and I've seen a lot of changes in how you think and how u write. I must say, I wasn't a fan before , but now, I'm still not (haha! chop coca cola! lemme explain why) because saying that I am would just mean to idolize someone and noone should be idolized except Allah. My point is,Maria Elena, the changes that Allah has brought to you and you unto yourself is mashaAllah , an inspiration :) I'm sure you would be a great friend to anyone who knows you.

Anyway, about prayers, I'm glad you touched on pronunciation and giving the meaning during recitation. I think what all muslims should do is try to get to know Allah first. The first time Jibril came to Rasulullah SAW, he didn't tell Rasulullah, he didnt't tell him to pray. He told him to READ. Rasulullah was given the wahys regarding Allah (Meccan surahs) for ten years. It's not until that the Isra' Mi'raj happened and Nabi was commanded to tell the people to pray. Allah is All Wise, He let the purpose be known and the reason be justified before He commanded us to worship Him. Isn't that Beautiful? So yea, khusy' in solaah comes from knowing Allah and knowing &understanding every word recited in it. :)

Anyway, I would like to recommended you a book if you haven't known about it. It's called Prayers According to Sunnah by Darussalam (publisher). It's available at MPH and even amazon.com/darussalam web.

Barakillahufi. I apologize for anything that I've done wrong.
and hey, at first I thought you're not awesome, well guess what, I just found out, you're awesomer ;)


"He said: Surely you cannot have patience with me and how can you have patience with a thing which you don't know(understand completely)?" - al-Kahf (Part II-IV-XV)
take care. :)

Part rukun solat yang selalu org salah jugak ialah toma'ninah laju bebenor sampai kekadang macam takde pun rukun tu.

AyuAdzum said...

that was nice sharing about the solat. ada satu rukun lagi yang org jarang ambik berat sangat; iqtidal. lepas rukuk pas allahuakbar terus sujud. lupa plak kite kene iqtidal dulu. betul tak maria elena?
