Token of Appreciation

Book about Islamic Finance- I will try to learn it!

Alhamdulillah, with grace from Allah we still live in this world until now.

The moment I write about an article in English for the first time in my blogs, I have been appreciate by someone that I admire in Islamic Banking, Accounting and Finance conference (IBAF), organized by Faculty Economic and Muamalat (FEM), Universiti Sains Islam Malaysia (USIM). He was Jonathan Wilson, from University of Greenwich.

It is about when I answer a question about How many Islamic youth in all over the world. The answer is: 52.5% from 1.6 Billion. This fact, as I mention in my article about Islamic Branding (and Marketing), and I get it from presentation from Jonathan Wilson. In that time, I felt very nervous when I tried to answer it. All of it were worth it when I write a summary what I learn from Jonathan. This is my motivation to continue improve my skill in writing, especially in English.

So, guys out there, it is possible thing that we can spread Islam in difference language. Not to bias with our ‘own’ language, but to expand and wider our skill and knowledge in many language. We have a time to improve it. It only depends to us, yourselves and myself to choose whether to take this¬†opportunity¬†or not. For myself, I will take this chance!!

Your choice is in your hand.

But, before we enter, we must know two things that is very important to consider for marketing and branding. There are; Demand and Market Opportunities.

“Saudara, sesungguhnya Allah itu dekat”

 

Ya, Tuhan itu dekat. (Credit to Galeri Ilmu)

 

Ya, Allah itu amat dekat dengan kita. Cuma sedar atau tak sedar sahaja oleh kita.

Seringkali kita mengeluh apabila kita ditimpa dengan ujian dalam kehidupan kita. Diri kita seakan-akan tidak mampu untuk menanggungnya. Tapi, pernahkah minda kita terfikir kenapa ya, kita terpilih untuk menggalas beban tersebut? Pernah tak dalam benak kita yang sebenarnya bebanan diberikan ke atas kita, kita boleh selesaikan? Saya pasti ramai di kalangan kita tidak terfikir ke arah itu. Namun, Allah s.w.t itu sayang akan kita. Jom hayati ayat ini:

“Allah tidak membebani seseorang itu melainkan sesuai dengan kesanggupannya. Ia mendapat pahala (dari kebajikan) yang diusahakannya dan ia mendapat seksa (dari kejahatan) yang dikerjakannya…” (Al-Baqarah: 286)

Ya, Allah itu tidak akan membebani hamba-hambaNya dengan bebanan yang tidak mampu dipikul oleh kita.

Di manakah kita?

 

Di manakah kita?

 

Anda tahu di manakah anda sekarang? Dalam minda anda sekarang sudah pasti anda menyatakan bahawa ‘aku sekarang dalam pejabat’ atau pun ‘aku sekarang di CC’. Mungkin ada di antara kita masih tertanya-tanya di manakah dirinya. Saya cuba mengetengahkan beberapa persoalan dalam tajuk di atas, pertama- posisi kita sebagai bangsa Melayu Islam sekarang? dan kedua- adakah kita punya harapan untuk menjadi bangsa terhebat pada masa akan datang?
