Jelajah Benua...ape tuu??

Salam..

This post was supposed to be submitted 3 weeks ago, however bundles of assignments and tonnes of tasks procrastinated my desire, and the pictures were just loaded. So here comes the entry...

Jelajah benua..ape tu..?



This is another great job well done by ISIM aka Islamic Student Movement of Ukraine
(translated:Pergerakan Usrah Ukraine). For the curious lot, usrah (defined:family - an arabic term) is somewhat a society that runs in small groups of 5 to 8, commandeered by a naqib/naqibah (leader) and sets its purpose as a modus operandi to spread and teach Islam bilhikmah. Rasa-rasanya bagi yang pernah belajar di SBP dan tinggal di asrama, dah serasi dengan pergerakan usrah. Cuma melekat di hati atau tidak je.

Initially it was to be held at Stroganovska Mosque, but later the venue was changed to Tyanitskaya Mosque, Eskissarai, that sat at the suburbs of Simferopol.



The bus departed at 0730am, and upon arriving, we devoured breakfast with our usrahs' accordingly. Previously each usrah had to memorize a verse from the Quran to be tasmi'ed later by the respected naqibahs' ; mine was verse 19-20 from Surah AsSajdah :

" Adapun org2 yg beriman dan beramal saleh, maka bagi mereka syurga2 tempat kediaman, sbg pahala terhadap apa yg telah mereka kerjakan (19)"

"Dan adapun org2 yg fasik (kafir), maka tempat mereka adalah neraka. Setiap kali mereka hendak keluar daripadanya, mereka dikembalikan (lagi) ke dalamnya dan dikatakan kepada mereka: "Rasakanlah siksa neraka yg dahulu kamu mendustakannya".(20)"

Next, questions were posed regarding the verses. All thinking caps were switched on, and we had to solve the problem posed by Brother Ali to all usrahs. Our task problem : Kenapa masih ramai yang segan untuk turun masjid dengar ceramah?Penyelesaiannya?

Sebab-musabab:

1)Malas
2)Hasutan nafsu
3)"Hasutan" kawan
4)Merasakan ilmu tak masuk
5)Berpendapat ceramah tak menarik
6)Merasakan "masjid bukan tempat untuk saya"

Our suggestions:

1) Memvariasikan cara dakwah
2)Basahkan lidah dengan zikir - santapan rohani
3)Lembutkan telinga dengar nasyid berbentuk nasihat
4)Iltizam yang kuat - jangan malas!!
5)Laksanakan kursus khas agar penceramah memperbaiki cara penyampaian (selitkan lawak etc.)
6)Berhati-hati dan pandai memilih sahabat
7)Pelbagaikan aktiviti menarik semasa ceramah



Then, Brother Muizzuddin delivered a speech : Feqah : Puasa dan Bersuci. We were reminded about the basics, and strengthened about the vitals. We are His servant - insan, derived from the arabic word naasiya (defined:lupa), mudah lupa bila leka, jadi sentiasa perlukan peringatan..which is what ceramahs, usrahs are purposely for.



Masa untuk main!!Terdapat dua acara sukaneka :

1)Tv rosak - each member has to memorize and describe a picture shown earlier to the 1st member, to be drawn by the last member. The picture of the usrah that resembles the real picture the most, wins. (banyaknye the...)

2)Bulatan teguh - each usrah is required to walk/run within a loop of thin thread without holding it. The usrah that reaches the finishing line the earliest without breaking the loop, wins.



Dah penat-penat main, mase untuk makan!!!Nyum..nyum..nyum..


This is what we call "Nasi Ayam" aka Chicken Fried Rice (ape..ingat kat Ukraine tak boleh makan nasi ayam?Hehe)

After performing the Asar prayers, there was a talk from the Imam of the Masjid : Sheikh (alamak lupelah ape name beliau..)


What mesmerized me was, regardless of being a Tartarian and a novicer to Arabic Language, he managed to put his words in the lughah grammatically-error-free. Even me, after 9 years of studying, am not able to master it as fluent as him. Saya ambil Subjek Bahasa Arab Tinggi untuk SPM juga; tapi dapat A2 jelah :P

He released his sincere gratitude and happiness upon seeing the Mosque full of Muslims - it was so hard to see such a phenomenon, he says. He told about his past - about his grandfather, Ramzan, whom was once an Imam in Ukraine too.

His past - retold:

A century ago, mosques mushroomed the earth of Ukraine. The 2nd World War stroke, massive destruction eroded many a buildings into pieces - it was a catastrophe. Muslims, mostly Tartarians, inevitably became refugees of their own land, and had to seek shelter at the Ukrainian borderland. To return was to seek danger - it was like the kafirs overruled their hometown, and maneouvred their rights and freedom. His Grandpa kept on crying - when may we be able to return home?

Decades later, the violation ceased - however, not many dared return. And that tells why only a minority remain - until now.

His story was touching and meaningful simultaneously. It reflected the struggle of these people, although a minority, to regain victory and power that was once theirs. Adakah kau lupa, kita pernah berkuasa..memayungi 2/3 dunia..

Eventually, that lead us to the final event - the prize-giving ceremony. For the 2nd time in a row, our usrah champed the games!! Yippee!! Alhamdulillah..


Congratulations to the crew who made this event a success. Looking forward for more!

ps: maaf kalau ada kesilapan info..almaklumlah, saya manusia biasa, kadang-kadang terlupa, silap sini-sana..

I enjoyed attending usrah when I was a student overseas. Not only the opportunity of meeting Malaysian brothers, but also Muslim brothers from all over. And of course, the food was one big, strong magnet :))

I have as usrah group here too and a super cool naqibah. It's one of my weekly activities that I look forward to for the next time only just after a session ends. Bila bersama sahabat-sahabat, yang memahami kita dan mengajak kita ke arah kebaikan, rasa macam keluarga kan? =)

Ya, saya dah tengok, dan juga dah beri komen. Mungkin penulis tersebut memandang skop usrah dari sudut yang lain; atau tidak meluaskan skop pandangannya. Terima kasih untuk link tersebut :)

I never knew usrah activities could be so extensive as to include games. That's so nice.

Congratulations, by the way, for acing the games. Why not try to make it a hat-trick *wink*

Perhaps if you come down and be the mastermind we could make it a hat-trick altogether *wink*eyebrow raised*
