an article of March 4, Richard Lightbown argues that Israel’s use of depleted uranium, white phosphorus and other toxic metals in its war on the people of the Gaza Strip has put the whole of the Strip’s population and its environment – air, soil, groundwater and possibly seawater – at risk of serious long-term injury and contamination.

Press TV on 4 March 2011 reported that cancer cases in Gaza had increased by 30 per cent, and that there was a link between the occurrence of the disease and residence in areas that had been badly hit by Israeli bombing. Zekra Ajour from the Al-Dameer Association for Human Rights told the channel that Gaza had been a testing ground for illegal weapons.

Birth defects

On 20 December 2009 Al-Dameer had published another paper in Arabic on the increase in the number of babies born in Gaza with birth defects, thought to be the result of radioactive and toxic materials from Operation Cast Lead.1 The birth defects included incomplete hearts and malformations of the brain. During August, September and October 2008 the number of cases had been 27. In the comparable months in 2009 the numbers had risen to 47. There was a similar rise in aborted foetuses. Al-Dameer had called for scientific monitoring throughout the Gaza Strip to obtain statistics on deformed foetus cases relating to the intentional use of internationally banned weapons.

Similar dramatic increases in birth defects over a longer period have been recorded in Iraq and have been linked to widespread use of depleted uranium (DU) weapons. (It is reported that local midwives no longer look forward to births as they don’t know what is going to come out.)

Depleted uranium

“Depleted uranium burns at almost 1200 degrees Celsius. (TNT by comparison burns at 576 degrees Celsius.) At this temperature the fire vaporizes any metals in the target which in combination with uranium are released into the air in aerosol form. After deposition the aerosols have the potential to contaminate groundwater.”
Although the epidemiologist Professor Alastair Hay told the BBC in March 2010 that it was difficult to suggest any particular cause for the trend,2 scientific data has been published which contradicts his opinion. A review in Environmental Health in 20053 concluded by saying:

Regarding the teratogenicity of parental prenatal exposure to DU aerosols, the evidence, albeit imperfect, indicates a high probability of substantial risk. Good science indicates that depleted uranium weapons should not be manufactured or exploded.

When later asked in the same interview about white phosphorus, Prof. Hay had replied;

…phosphorus is an essential element in our bodies and so you would I think have to ingest a huge amount to cause any particular problem. But there has been no investigation anywhere that I am aware of to link phosphorus with health problems…

Apparently the professor has not read the Goldstone Report of the previous year which states in paragraph 896:

Medical staff reported to the mission how even working in the areas where the phosphorus had been used made them feel sick, their lips would swell and they would become extremely thirsty and nauseous.

The toxicity of phosphorus is also recorded in a report by New York medical staff:4

Oral ingestion of white phosphorus in humans has been demonstrated to result in pathologic changes to the liver and kidneys. The ingestion of a small quantity of white phosphorus can cause gastrointestinal complaints such as nausea, abdominal cramps, and vomiting. Individuals with a history of oral ingestion have been noted to pass phosphorus-laden stool (“smoking stool syndrome”). The accepted lethal dose is 1 mg/kg, although the ingestion of as little as 15 mg has resulted in death.

The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) reported that breathing white phosphorus for long periods causes “phossy jaw”, a condition in which there is poor wound healing of the mouth and breakdown of the jawbone.5

Depleted uranium in US-supplied bunker-buster bombs

Evidence of the use of depleted uranium against Gaza is tenuous and Goldstone merely recorded in paragraph 907 that it had received allegations which it had not further investigated. Much of this evidence came from Action des citoyens pour le désarmement nucléaire (ACDN: Citizens Action for Nuclear Disarmament). Their report of July 2009 hypothesizes that the GBU-39 bunker-buster bomb is packed with 75 kilogram of depleted uranium. (A UNEP report also ambiguously refers to bunker-buster bombs containing depleted uranium.) The US delivery of 1,000 of these bombs to Israel arrived in early December 2008 shortly before the start of the war. The GBU-39 is considered one of the world’s most precise bombs and Boeing, the manufacturer, claims that the bomb will penetrate three feet of steel-reinforced concrete. (UNEP suggests that it can penetrate reinforced concrete to depths ranging from 1.8 to over 6 metres.) Boeing’s patent on the weapon mentions depleted uranium.6

It is not known how many bunker-buster bombs were used against Gaza but it seems reasonable to assume that the number could run into hundreds. It is thought that they were used mostly in the Philadelphia corridor against the tunnels. Desmond Travers, the former Irish army officer who was a member of the Goldstone Commission, would only say that depleted uranium may have been used during the war, although he did agree that it would have been well suited for attacking the tunnels where maximum penetration would have been desired.7 He was also in agreement with ACDN that the use of below-ground targets would have considerably reduced the levels of aerosol uranium that was dispersed into the air.

Col Raymond Lane, who is chief instructor of ordnance with the Irish armed forces, gave testimony to the Goldstone Commission on weapons used in the Gaza conflict. He told the commission that he had no expertise of depleted uranium and so had not investigated it. He gave no reason for his failure to bring in specialist expertise to investigate the subject.8

In April 2009 Jean-François Fechino from ACDN was part of a four-person team which went to Gaza for the Arab Commission for Human Rights. Samples that the team brought back were analysed by a specialist laboratory which identified carcinogens: depleted uranium, caesium, asbestos dust, tungsten and aluminium oxide. Thorium oxide was also found, which is radioactive, as are depleted uranium and caesium. The analysis also identified phosphates and copper, along with volatile organic compounds (VOCs) which are a health hazard, especially to children, asthmatics and elders.9

Depleted uranium burns at almost 1200 degrees Celsius. (TNT by comparison burns at 576 degrees Celsius.)10 At this temperature the fire vaporizes any metals in the target which in combination with uranium are released into the air in aerosol form. After deposition the aerosols have the potential to contaminate groundwater. (The Gaza aquifer, which is the Strip’s only water source, is also connected to ground water supplies in Egypt, although water only flows into Gaza from Israel.11)

There is empirical documentation that the aerosols can travel up to 42 Km and theoretical documentation that they can travel further. Sderot is about 43 kilometres from the Philadelphia corridor and less than five kilometres from Beit Hanoun. In consequence, it may be that the activities of Israel’s air force have created a greater threat to the Israeli city than all of the 8,000 well-publicized rockets from Gaza ever have.

Depleted uranium accumulation has been recorded in the bone, kidney, reproductive system, brain and lung. It is carcinogenic, toxic to the kidneys, damaging to cellular DNA and causes malformations to an embryo or foetus.

White phosphorus

“Doctors found that when they removed bandages applied to a wound that still contained fragments of white phosphorous, smoke would come from the wound since the chemical continues to burn as long as it is in contact with oxygen.”
Although an Israeli army spokesman told CNN on 7 January 2009, “I can tell you with certainty that white phosphorus is absolutely not being used.” the chemical had been used by Israeli forces since the beginning of the war.12 The Goldstone Report stated that Israeli sources later claimed their forces had stopped using white phosphorous on 7 January 2009 because of international concerns. This was also untrue as there is evidence that it had been used after that date. Goldstone declared the Israeli armed forces to have been “systematically reckless” in using white phosphorous in built-up areas (paragraphs 884, 886 and 890).

Difficulty in detecting the extent of damage to tissue and organs gave serious problems to medical staff trying to treat white phosphorus injuries. Several patients died as a result. Doctors found that when they removed bandages applied to a wound that still contained fragments of white phosphorous, smoke would come from the wound since the chemical continues to burn as long as it is in contact with oxygen. White phosphorous sticks to tissue so that all flesh and sometimes muscle around the burn would have to be cut out. The substance is also highly toxic (Goldstone paragraphs 892/4/5/6).

An article published in The Lancet included photographs of a young man who was admitted to hospital in Gaza with white phosphorous burns on 30 per cent of his body. The day after admission smoke was noticed coming from the wounds and the patient was rapidly transferred to the operating room for removal of dead tissue and removal of white phosphorus particles. During the operation a particle of the chemical was dislodged and caused a superficial burn on a nurse’s neck. The patient survived.13

Col Lane testified that although white phosphorus gave the best quality of smoke for military purposes it was “horrible stuff” and the Irish army had stopped using it 20 years previously. He recounted how the British army had sea-dumped quantities of the material off the coast of southwest. Scotland in the 1950s, some of which had been washed up on the coast of Ireland by a storm in 2007. It had ignited on drying (the colonel had witnessed this himself) and in one instance a child had suffered burns as a result.

Other toxic materials

Mass spectrometry analysis conducted by the New Weapons Research Group (NWRG) found aluminium, titanium, strontium, barium, cobalt and mercury in biopsies taken from white phosphorus wounds at Shifaa Hospital, Gaza. (Aluminium, barium and mercury have potential for lethal and intoxicating effects; aluminium and mercury can cause chronic pathologies over time; mercury is carcinogenic for humans; cobalt can cause mutations; and aluminium is fetotoxic, i.e. injurious to foetuses.)14

White phosphorus bombs are built with alternating sectors of white phosphorus and aluminium. Analysis by NWRC of the powder from a shell near Al-Wafa Hospital in Gaza also found high levels of molybdenum, tungsten and mercury. Tungsten and mercury are carcinogenic, while molybdenum is toxic to sperms.

In a report appropriately entitled “Gaza Strip, soil has been contaminated due to bombings: population in danger”, NWRG also conducted analyses of two craters caused by bombs in 2006 and two others by bombs in 2009. In the 2006 craters they identified tungsten, mercury and molybdenum, while in the 2009 craters at Tufah they discovered molybdenum, cadmium, cobalt, nickel, manganese, copper and zinc. Cadmium and some nickel and manganese compounds are carcinogenic.15

NWRG has further conducted research of hair samples from 95 children resident in heavily bombed areas of Gaza. Again using mass spectrometry the study identified the carcinogenic or toxic metals chromium, cadmium, cobalt, tungsten and uranium. One wounded individual also had unusually high levels of lead. The study found the results alarming and considered the levels could be pathogenic in situations of chronic exposure. Thirty-nine of the examinees were recommended for further checks.16

DIME weapons, soil contamination and cancer

“DIME bombs cause a high proportion of amputations particularly of legs, while patients often suffered internal burns as well.”
It has been reported that soil in the area of a DIME (dense inert metal explosive) bomb blast may remain barren for an indefinite period of time because of contamination from heavy metal tungsten alloy.17 The same material in trial rapidly caused tumours in 100 per cent of rats when used at both low and high doses, with the tumours spreading to the lungs, necessitating euthanasia.18

DIME weapons were first used against Gaza by Israeli drones in the summer of 2006, when Palestinian medical personnel reported that it significantly increased the fatality rate among victims.19 Shortly after the DIME weapons were also trialled during the first week of the war in Lebanon in July 2006.

The Goldstone Commission was unable to confirm that DIME munitions were used by Israeli forces during Operation Cast Lead. Col Lane had told the commission in testimony that there was no actual proof. He then went on to testify that he had been given samples in Gaza which analysis in Dublin had shown to contain DIME materials consisting mostly of tungsten with traces of iron and sulphur. He was of the opinion that ordnance had been used that had some sort of DIME component. He also mentioned that he had read of unusual amputations, and that tungsten and cobalt would have this effect. Weaponry had been found with DIME components which was capable of amputation and there are Palestinian amputees, yet neither Col Lane nor the commission was prepared to say that DIME weapons had been used by Israeli forces.

DIME bombs cause a high proportion of amputations particularly of legs, while patients often suffered internal burns as well. The bombs consist of powdered tungsten alloy mixed with an explosive material inside a casing which disintegrates on explosion. The tungsten powder tears apart anything it hits including soft tissue and bone, causing very severe injuries. Tungsten alloy particles, described as “finely powdered micro-shrapnel”, are too small to be extracted from the victim’s body and are highly carcinogenic. (Goldstone, paragraphs 902-4)

No weapons fragments can be found from DIME bombs with standard diagnostic resources, despite the indication of heavy metals from this type of injuries. Mass spectrometry analyses by NWRG of biopsies from amputation injuries revealed aluminium, titanium, copper, strontium, barium, cobalt, mercury, vanadium, caesium, tin, arsenic, manganese, rubidium, cadmium, chromium, zinc and nickel. Doctors reported that it was difficult to determine the extent of dead tissue (which it is vital to remove). This resulted in higher rates of deep infection, subsequent amputation and higher mortality.20

The wide range of heavy metals discovered by analysis in casualties, residents and soil in Gaza suggests that other unidentified weapons may have also been trialled. (The Sensor Fuzed Weapon has been suggested as one such technological perversion that the Israeli forces may have used.21)

The whole Gaza population and their environment, including generations yet to be conceived, have been put at risk of serious long-term injury from heavy metal pollution of the air, soil and groundwater (and possibly the seawater too), while the causal pollution is likely to cross state borders into Egypt and even into Israel. Reassurances of the legitimate and responsible use and the reduced lethality of weapons (an opinion in part shared by Col Lane) are callous and inadequate in the context of the dangerous reality that has resulted. Meanwhile, the impacts of Israel’s illegal assaults on Gaza remain ignored and its deeds uncensored by the wider international community.

Construction Industry

Its good money seriously, lots of new expertice in building & construction brought in. Clearly international help would be required in many ways, material consumption will drive the industry,more jobs for people like me when we graduate…

 

Aesthetics

It is going to be very iconic in the skyline of KL. Icons can go two ways, but seeing that a crazy lot of people dont see it approvingly, it will be an icon of the govenment’s ego regardless of PNB being a private corporation or not. Speaking of Iconic, it increases the risk of it becoming a terrorist target.

 

I would approve the project if it was revolutionary in design able to contribute to the Malaysian people and still make PNB very happy, ie being a new kind of green building, that has trees all over, or a farm to feed the city (market below?) or a revolutionary skyscraper to house all kinds of sport stadiums (since its near the old KL sport area) or something amazing like that where Malaysians can say we lead the world 10 years down. Problem is that its just another tall building, box rooms, repeated 100 times skywards… If only Norman Foster would be the designer…

 

Planning

Planning wise, its a heritage area, schools, stadiums… its said that that area where Chin Woo Stadium stands, is the acropolis of KL… now will you build a 100 story tower next to the acropolis? Its a heritage site, it must be protected… Now, let me explain why… building a massive landmark like that will raise real estate value in the surrounding areas. KL’s heritage conservation law is not like Penang’s or Melaka’s… Developers will snap up the land very quickly regardless of the trouble involved. It is known that developers will very quickly demolish the heritage buildings before anybody has the chance to tighten conservation laws. Now demolished all is lost, noting to fight to protect now. The micro effects will be the same, nearby Chinatown will start losing its old charm, more modern and clean retail and businesses will replace the old, may be good, may be not.

 

About density and development, I personally think that KL is trying to link a corridor from KLCC’s high desity development all the way to KL Sentral. Very neat idea but there are other areas that can be used for this corridor too. No need to talk about vehicular traffic… keep the calculator, no need to calculate. But inkage to area is quite good, not more than 1km away from all 4 train lines. The site borders a few premier institutions. Certain noise, traffic & safety issues.

 

From my reading of KL’s planning history, there are still several shelved projects to revive the Klang river.(one ambitious one including building a huge snaking mall over the river with water taxis underneth) City should talk to PNB revival projects like this. This is the city’s heritage root, the lumpur…

 

PNB Corporate Duty

I love architecture. The last few times I tried to visit Stadium Merdeka and the nearby Stadium Negara, I was not allowed in on few occations. I was told to get permission from PNB. A few times, allowed in, but no pictures, same excuse… I argued that its national heritage, and its PNB’s duty to keep it open to all citizens, no response… Their PR is bad to the bone… how do you hope students doing their Malaysian Studies and History to see PNB as the nations success story?

 

Editor’s note: Alex Lee studied architecture and planning. We thank him for kindly sending this note to us sometime ago when we called for views from professional and expert perspective. We welcome others to do the same.

 

By experts, you need not be a world class professor or famous consultant. You could be a ASB investor, a property agent, a civil engineer, an environmentally-conscious citizen, or even just a commuter, who spends time to observe, investigate and understand what happen around us.

 

The point is we need more in-depth views from a wider variety of focus on the Mega Tower. Such comments should have been provided by our media, professional bodies and universities. Since this does not happen, we are appealing to you – Let’s DIY.

saya hanya mampu menghela nafas yang panjang.
begini ceritanya…

Kami ke cozy house, great eastern mall, jalan ampang.
Dengar cerita makanan di situ sedap dan ramai juga orang berkunjung menikmati mkanan di situ.

Di malam itu, cozy house memang full house macam hari2 kebiasaan. Sampai kami dan beberapa family terpaksa beratur pnjg di luar restauran utk menunggu turn di beri tmpt duduk.

setelah beberapa minit shaja, kami di beri kerusi dan meja. lantas membuka menu makanan, tilik punya tilik kami dh almost prepared to order the food. tinggal air je belom lgk. lantas, rakan terlihat drinks di menu tercatit, BEER.
saya pn dengan selamba nya menjawab, tu mcm rootbeer kotz mcm kt ANW tu.melihatkan terlalu ramai org melayu beragama Islam dan family masing2 makan di situ. tapi rakan tak puas hati dengan jwpn saya, lalu rakan menanyakan soalan pada waitress di situ.

oh ya, semua waiter/waitress dan jugak cashier terdiri daripada kalangan agama Islam dari segi muka. dan kebanyakan yang makan di situ juga family2 Islam, sedara se-Islam saya sendirik.

berbalik pada cerita tersebut, waitress menjwb kami sediakan BEER  TIGER, dalam tin atau botol. waitress ckp lagik, orang2 mcm kite (orang ISLAM) tak boleh minum dik. tp klo nk order, kami anta je.

seketika kami menatap menu tersebut, apakan daya yang mampu kami buat sekliling adalah sedara sengakatan kami.
malah ade juga pak imam sekeluarga makan di situ,sambil serban masih dililit kemas di kepala. kalo agama mengatakan arak itu Haram, maka, gelas2 yang diteguk dari minuman keras itu juga  syubhah. begitu juga dengan air basuhan gelas2 dan pinggan yang digunakan di kedai tersebut.

ni br satu kes, kes seterusnya, di TGI Fridays, sudah terang2an botol2 arak di dalam kedai. apatah lagi, saksi yakni rakan saya terlihat sndirik mereka memasak maknan di situ menggunakan wine. sebagai umat Islam, tolong lahhh… fikir dahulu sebelum makan di tempat2 tersebut. tengok menu dulu. apatah lagik gadis bertudung pabila memijak bar di bangsar kuala lumpur. sungguh memalukan. dah sah2 nama tmpt pn tertulis AL**** bistro & wine bar.

banyak lagik tmpt yang halal boleh celebr8 birthday tp bkn di bar2 di malaysia ni. anda bertudung,even tho tidak bertudung anda seorang beragama ISLAM.

oh pleaseeee….~

lastly, saya menyeru sedara2 seIslam, jaga lah makan minum anda. esp dari segi halal dan haram.

ini yang berlaku di dpn mata, yg berlaku di belakang mata, sape kn tahu, tapi Allah Maha Mengetahui.

inilah taktik orang bukan Islam utk mengajak kite makan dan minum di restauran mereka. mereka meletakkan pelayan2 yang seagama dengan kita tapi hakikatnya, makanan dan minuman disediakan adalah HARAM.

mungkin sedap makanan di situ, tetapi HARAM tak de maknenye jugak.

Adik cuma nak tanya ibu, kenapa begini jadinya? cinta Feb

Pohon yang ibu dan lelaki tu tanam telah membuahkan hasil
Hari ini buah cinta kalian telah terzahir
Hari ini bukti kasih jejaka itu pada ibu telah lahir…
tapi benarkah bu?

Kenapa dia tidak sama menyambut kami?
Kemana dia telah pergi tidak azankan kami?
Mengapa ibu pun benci kami?
Sedangkan inilah semaian tanda cinta kalian?

Mengapa ibu?

Tak terasakah sakit dan perit
tak berbakikah kasih dan sayang dan
Tidak lagi kah ibu berTuhan?

Benarkah ibu?
Benarkah begitu?

PUTRAJAYA: Dia mempunyai tiga anak, semuanya lelaki, tetapi tiada seorang pun sudi menjaganya, malah tergamak menghantar si ibu berusia 60-an ini ke rumah orang tua, dua tahun lalu.

Sejak itu, tiada seorang pun anaknya pernah menjenguknya termasuk ketika dia sedang nazak, baru-baru ini.

Sebaik jenazah si ibu siap dikebumikan, dua daripada tiga anaknya muncul di tanah perkuburan. Itupun, bukan untuk mendoakan kesejahteraannya, tetapi kerana mahu bertanyakan harta ditinggalkan.

Lebih memilukan, dua beradik derhaka itu saling berebut harta peninggalan ibu mereka tanpa menghiraukan orang ramai yang masih berada di kubur kerana menguruskan pengebumian jenazah wanita malang itu.

Malah, mereka juga tidak menunjukkan perasaan menyesal atau bersalah walaupun tidak berkesempatan bertemu arwah ibu buat kali terakhir selepas dua tahun ‘membuangnya’ di Pusat Rawatan dan Jagaan Orang Tua Al-Ikhlas di Pulau Meranti, dekat sini.

Tiga beradik itu menghantar ibu mereka ke pusat berkenaan selepas mengaku tidak sanggup menjaga sendiri ibu yang dianggap satu bebanan, apatah lagi warga emas itu menghidap penyakit kencing manis dan darah tinggi.

Sebagai helah, tiga beradik itu mendakwa tidak mampu menjaga ibu kerana mempunyai tanggungan ramai walaupun pada hakikatnya mereka mempunyai pekerjaan tetap.

Menceritakan peristiwa itu, pengasas pusat berkenaan, Muji Sulaiman berkata sejak warga emas berkenaan terlantar sakit, dia kerap menghubungi ketiga-tiga anak wanita terbabit supaya datang menziarahi ibu mereka berikutan keadaannya agak kritikal.

Namun, semuanya sia-sia apabila mereka memberi alasan terlalu sibuk dan tidak sempat menziarahi ibu walaupun sekejap.

Malah, sehari sebelum wanita itu meninggal, Muji turut menghubungi ketiga-tiga anaknya supaya datang memohon ampun sebelum terlambat selepas mendapati ibu mereka sudah nazak.

Malangnya, akibat keras hati tidak seorang pun anaknya mengunjungi ibu tua berkenaan sehingga dia menghembuskan nafas terakhir Ramadan lalu di sisi Muji dan beberapa rakan yang tinggal di rumah jagaan itu.

“Selepas wanita itu meninggal, saya sekali lagi menghubungi anaknya untuk memberi peluang mereka menatap wajah ibu mereka buat kali terakhir, tapi sia-sia kerana masing-masing tetap memberi alasan sama, iaitu sibuk, sekali gus memaksa kami menguruskan pengebumian tanpa menunggu anaknya.

“Apa yang menyedihkan saya, dua daripada tiga anak lelakinya hanya tiba di tanah perkuburan selepas jenazah ibu mereka selamat dikebumikan dengan satu tujuan, iaitu bertanyakan harta ditinggalkan arwah ibu mereka.

“Abang sulung bertanyakan di mana barang kemas ibunya, manakala si bongsu meminta sijil kematian bagi membolehkannya mengeluarkan wang dari akaun Amanah Saham Bumiputera (ASB) milik arwah ibunya,” katanya kepada Harian Metro, semalam.

Muji berkata, hatinya hancur apabila mendapati dua lelaki terbabit hanya sanggup menziarah kubur ibu mereka semata-mata untuk mendapatkan harta tidak seberapa ditinggalkan arwah ibu tanpa menghiraukan orang ramai yang menguruskan pengebumian wanita terbabit.

Katanya, dia memaklumkan kepada anak sulung wanita terbabit bahawa ibunya tidak pernah memakai barang kemas sepanjang menghuni rumah orang tua berkenaan menyebabkan si anak seolah-olah tidak berpuas hati.

Bagaimanapun, Muji terpaksa menyerahkan surat kematian kepada anak bongsu kerana tidak berhak memegangnya walaupun arwah sudah berpesan supaya menyedekahkan wang ASB miliknya kepada mereka yang memerlukan.

“Tidak sangka ada anak yang tergamak datang pada hari pengebumian ibu untuk berebutkan harta sedangkan sebelum ini mereka tidak pernah datang menjenguk walaupun beberapa kali diminta berbuat demikian.

“Kejadian ini membuka mata saya bahawa segelintir anak hanya sanggup menjaga ibu yang sudah uzur jika mempunyai harta, tapi sanggup membuang orang yang mengandung dan melahirkan mereka sekiranya tidak mempunyai harta untuk menyenangkan kehidupan mereka,” katanya sebak.

Life is too short to wake up in the morning with regrets, So love the people who treat you right, Forget about the ones who don't, And believe that everything happens for a reason. If you get a chance, take it. If it changes your life, let it. Nobody said life would be easy, They just promised it would be worth living.

Ingatlah, hanya dengan mengingati ALLAH, hati menjadi tenteram.

"Ya ALLAH, jika aku jatuh cinta, cintakanlah aku pada seseorang yang melabuhkan cintanya padaMu agar bertambah kekuatan ku untuk mencintaiMu"

Bertambah luas akal, bertambah luas lah hidup, bertambah datang lah bahagia. Bertambah sempit akal, bertambah sempit lah hidup, bertambah datang lah celaka. -Hamka -

Yang paling bahagia adalah orang yang mempunyai hati yang alim, mempunyai kesabaran dalam diri dan mempunyai sifat yang merasa cukup dengan rezeki yang ada. -Hukamak-

INFO: Tip untuk ibu bapa


Sebaik kandungan mencecah empat bulan, ibu digalakkan baca surah al-Fatihah, ayat Kursi dan surah al-Inshirah. Surah Fatihah adalah ibu al-Quran, ayat Kursi bertujuan menghalau gangguan syaitan manakala surat al-Inshirah untuk melapangkan hati dan fikiran.

Selepas bersalin, baca surah berkenaan ketika menyusukan anak dan dihembuskan di kepala. Ia boleh diteruskan sehingga anak cukup umur.

Waktu ketika anak antara sedar dan tidak. Rebut peluang bisikkan kata-kata nasihat, pujian dan pesanan. Ambil masa seminit, dua untuk membacakan doa sambil mengusap kepala mereka selain memberikan nasihat.

Doakan kejayaan anak, rakan anak mereka, anak rakan dan jiran.
