Random Celotehs 2

Assalamualaikum peeps! ;D
So tetiba rasa nak berceloteh lagi. Although this will be just celotehs, but I hope some of it could benefit you guys in some ways. Whatever it is, one once said that "if you are going to talk, make sure it benefits the listener, if you are going to write something, make sure it benefits the reader. Any foul words or false statements will only adding more sins to you and the person acquainted with you."
5. Wisdom Teeth
Last Saturday, my siblings and I made our way to the dentist for our annual check ups. Razeen went in first, and the next thing I know I found his lips gripping red tainted cottons, which later I found out the cottons were actually covered with his blood, sebab dia kena cabut gigi. Ergh.
This is the second or third time I went to this dentist, the clinic is just nearby our home. And that was like when I was 7 or 8? But I went there to get my baby tooth plucked out. And I loathe the pain I felt because of that, I couldn't remember whether it's because of the pain, or I was angry because of the dentist himself, he is kinda rough. And because of that miserable day, later on whenever my baby tooth feels like coming out, I would gladly help it to come out 'naturally', if you know what I mean. I would eat cerals, or ice cream, and focus the munched foods on that particular area. But of course I still have to visit the dentist, only that we changed dentist for about 4 years and then went to our pakteh, for about 3 years, but because now he focuses more on being a surgeon - yepp he is super awesome, he's a dentist and a facial surgeon- alhamdulillah- we just had to visit the dentist that I don't err not quite fond of.
So anyway, I'm nineteen going twenty in less than a month from now, and the dentist also has been growing older and I assume, more softer in dealing with patients? I don't know but after I look at Razeen's bloody mouth-okay that's harsh-, my stomach churned in such a bad way. Mama already said that I should get my teeth some scaling and polishing. I don't mind the polish part although it could tickles at some point and feels nyilu, but scaling,, woah, what I know is that pakteh did a very remarkable job in doing it in a less painful way.
As I entered the room and lay down and my face being under the 'spotlight' -I supposed the nurse and the dentist could see the pores and the getting better acnes- he checked my teeth condition. Then he said, "wisdom tooth dia dua2 kena cabut. Both are slanted (now that explains why it hurts whenever I munched my foods with the teeth at behind). So nak cabut hari ni ke?" I was like, what?!?!?! Even I say so myself, teeth is something I won't forget to care about. I brush, occasionally floss, sometimes gargle with mouthwash-although not so often- but the news that I've got to lose my wisdom teeth shocked me, and all I could imagine was painful moments are ahead of me T__T *menangis air terjun* But my mom said that we could make another appointment (5th Jan ye, ahem) As for me, if anyone even cares to listen-well if they could actually listen to me, monologue with myself, I don't even want to 'pluck out those teeth of mine! The heck I care if I have to bear the pain whenever I eat! (Well now, takdelah rasa macam tak concern dengan gigi tu.)
So anyway, I would very much like to share how my scaling moments with Doctor. It hurts. Big time O_O tak tahulah dentist tu pegi scaling gusi gusi tu skali, tapi rasa dia, sakit. Masa dia start tu baca la bismillah, selawat, doa, dalam hati. Dalam hati tu keep on repeating Ya Allah Kau yang Berkuasa, lembutkanlah pergerakan dentist ni ya Allah. Aku lemah, dan tidak tahan pada kesakitan. Alhamdulillah awal-2 tu rasa sakit ala-ala gigit semut, err semut yang besar kot. Tapi ni bukan sakit gigit sangat, susah nak describe, sebab siap dengan bunyi macam tengah menggerudi kan. Ok tapi tu macam exaggerated pulak. Tapi memang sakit la. I've never really like scaling. Although it cleans out every bits of foods stucked between your teeth, and despite the smashing looking after-effect, I still dislike it, The feelings are just unbearable to me. Lepas siap tu, nak kumur, blood-coloured saliva and blood itself yang keluar. I had to gargle like 5 times to at least get a clearer spit, only that the colour was more or less pale yellow. Yepp, that's how 'bad' it was. Seriously rasa macam gusi bawah setiap gigi tu kena toreh :'|
Lepas tu ada satu gigi kena tampal. Alhamdulillah this would be the third time tampal. But the dentist didn't do polishing, as he said that my teeth has no stains :D Alhamdulillah. After I stand up, the dentist repeated the question of when should we start to remove my back teeth, because it should be conducted as soon as possible, 'the sooner the better' he said, and I actually did burst out -quite politely- "tapi kalau tak buat langsung, tak boleh ke?" with the most hideous scared looking face, then he said, "takk boleh. sebab it will affect other teeth." Now that's something! *facepalm*
If some of you doesn't know about wisdom tooth, it grows somewhat later, in your older age, when you have already had the permanent teeth. It varies between people. Some people have the wisdom tooth quite late, like my mom, she had them when she was late twenties. Oh and what meant by my wisdom teeth slanted, was that, which I had noticed clearly yesterday, my right wisdom tooth, half of it has been covered by my gum (yeah, I don't think this disturb you guys more than the other one), and my left tooth, may He protect it, has been fully, almost fully, 99% covered with the gum! (okay this is disturbing. Big time) Okay okay, stop with the shocking, facepalm, face already. Sebab gigi tu slanted, sampai gusi belakang tu boleh meliputi gigi tu. Hah! Full coverage! Pfft.
Anyway, doakan saya, the 'operation' will be held insha Allah on Jan 5th, I will be "biused" of course (I could sensed Miss Natasha shot a glaring look at me) (Oh Miss Natasha is my English Lecturer), tapi bukan yang boleh tidur punya, yang kebas effect punya. Huhu.

6. Being 'Angelic'

Angelic. Read: Innocent, Pure, Virtuous. (Malay; Baik Sesangat)

I remember when I was sitting for my PMR and my dad reminded me, "Baba ingat dulu, masa Raihana nak UPSR, Raihana akan baca Quran setip hari, banyak kali, buat solat sunat." And I know that Baba had noticed my changes in my habits, probably. You know, people who are closer with you are better mirrors than the mirror you are looking at in front of you. Ya, masa tu saya pun rasa diri ni tak macam dulu. Amalan harian tu tak terjaga. Sekarang pun, masih banyak perlu diperbaiki. Masih perlu istiqamah.

Baba always remind all of us, " Jangan nak exam je kita ingat Allah. Ibarat macam kita rasa diri bertuhan waktu exam je. Kena banyak istighfar. Solat sunat hajat, qiyam, bukan buat masa nak exam je, awal tahun lagi dah buat. Minta awal-awal. Kita patut malu degan diri sebab ingat kat Allah pada waktu tertentu, sedangkan Allah tidak pernah terlepas pandang kita, dan kita sebagai hamba wajar ingat Dia selalu." Dah macam norma, bila nak dekat exam buat solat hajat mega, puasa sunat et cetera. Tak salah, in fact daripada tak buat langsung, at least kita buat kan? Tetapi cuba tanya pada diri, molek kah kita sebagai hamba yang hina, yang dikurniakan abundant bounties from Allah SWT, free of charge,  tapi kufur nikmat, lupa, lalai, dan hanya memerlukan Dia pada waktu susah sahaja. Yes, we are imperfect humans, but that doesn't mean we should stop from correcting ourselves and become better 'abd Allah every day, right?

My friend once told me that her friend confided to her about her roommates that she was sharing with. It was a room of four, and that girl had to share it with three DQians (Darul Quran). She said she had a 'hard time' being in a room with the hafizahs, who are wearing tudung labuh, who are memorizing and reciting quran every day, because she couldn't wear shorts in the room, she felt she's being 'controlled' by the three sisters. Then I heard the girl's statement which caused my heart to ound harder than usual, that said, "susah kan jadi hafizah ni. aku tengok dorang kena jaga banyak benda. kalau macam kita yang tak hafal quran ni at least tak la rasa bersalah kalau buat salah sket sket." Astaghfirullah. Kadang-kadang kita kena bersabar, sebab tak semua orang faham sepenuhnya tentang Islam. And I would not say I'm a pro about my own religion, which is a shame of course, because I'm still learning. Cuma background sesorang tu yang tidak 'membenarkan' dia belajar tentang agama. Kita yang faham ni la yang kena tegur. At the same time tunjuk qudwah yang baik.

I don't blame that girl. It's just that it saddens me people would say as if someone needs to be a good muslim because he or her is learning about Islam more than that someone, or being a hafiz/hafizah, because he or she is more closer to Allah than other people-which in some point it's true, of course you are closer to Allah when you tingkatkan amalan. But it doesn't leave us who are still a Muslim to become ignorance in conforming to our religion's order. We cannot say we could commit sins from time to time and feel less guilty about it just because our amalan biasa-biasa saja. Because every second, we aged, we become older, and become closer to death.

We should be angelic, at all times. Well, we should try. It's either being late or never. And it's always better being late than never.

7. Pre Registration Havoc

So today dah boleh start pre-reg for intake Semester 2, 2012/2013 IIUM Gombak. And I've seen tweets like "Boleh beruban aku buat pre reg ni" O_O Lol ya sampai begitu sekali. Alang-alang, count me in! The page is hard to connect to when we presumed, lots of students are trying to register around the same time. Huh.

Alhamdulillah I managed to register 3 core civil law subjects which are Law of Torts 1, Law of Contracts 1, Malaysian Legal System. Besides that, we also have to add three more syariah law subjects which are to be learnt fully in Arabic *facepalm* *mulut terlopong* as well as BM, -yepp kami bebudak law kena ambik BM ye rerakan *high school memories flashes in mind*- Unggas (Don't ask me, I'm not very sure about this subject either) also co curicullum which to be added when we entered there this January.

So all these are equivalent to 8 subjects plus cocu. Again ! *mata terbeliak* Talk about the major focus we should be during lectures - terpaksa kena bersiap sedia dengan rerakan yang ajak berbisik pasal movies,sejarah silam, etc, dan MENGHIRAUKAN mereka!- okay that's kinda harsh T_T|| Eheh ^^" *buat tak nampak kemarahan #YYAians* but, whattodo? Ottokeo? You can't help yourself from being more serious and focus than ever when you have to cope with 8 subjects?! Ni tak pikir lagi bab mid term exam, bab finals! Ohmai! O.O'" Huhu. Focus is wajib. Period.

The fact that I have to learn 3 subjects in Arabic worries me big time. My arabic is honestly, not that good compared to my other colleagues who are taking Syariah Law course as well. It annoyed me a little when I heard a good pal of mine dah siap pegi tuition arab T___T It makes me feel hopeless! At a second. But I have to have faith in my du'a, in Him that will always listens to my prayer, in myself, so that I could trust myself to reach for the top *mata berkaca* *semangat meningkat tetiba*

Besides, my parents are putting high hopes on me, and why would I let them down? After SPM, what I really want to do is accomplish excellence in my results, for my parents, and most importantly for my religion. Kita berhajat nak berjaya dalam hidup ni sewajarnya untuk berjuang dalam agama. Educated Muslims are very highly needed. In fact, the Quran mentioned about educated people in such a way that they are very special, very close to Him. Buat sesuatu kerana Allah. To achieve Mardhotillah (Redha Allah).

[3:7] Dia-lah yang menurunkan Al Kitab (Al Qur'an) kepada kamu. Di antara (isi) nya ada ayat-ayat yang muhkamaat, itulah pokok-pokok isi Al qur'an dan yang lain (ayat-ayat) mu-tasyaabihaat. Adapun orang-orang yang dalam hatinya condong kepada kesesatan, maka mereka mengikuti sebagian ayat-ayat yang mutasyaabihaat daripadanya untuk menimbulkan fitnah untuk mencari-cari takwilnya, padahal tidak ada yang mengetahui takwilnya melainkan Allah. Dan orang-orang yang mendalam ilmunya berkata: "Kami beriman kepada ayat-ayat yang mutasyaabihaat, semuanya itu dari sisi Tuhan kami." Dan tidak dapat mengambil pelajaran (daripadanya) melainkan orang-orang yang berakal.

I thought of posting a picture of the schedules, but the original would just give you guys headache by just seeing it. Probably I'll show the one that I jot down.

Anyway, let's not stop reciiting Qunut Nazilah for our beloved brothers and sisters in Palestine, Iraq, Afghanistan, Rohingya, Chechnya, Guantanamo Bay, Philipines wa fi kulli makan wa zaman.

'Till then, ciao!
