When in dispute, remember Imam Shafi'e's words of wisdom


It is said that Yunus Ibn 'Abd al-A'ala (a student of al-Imam ash-Shafi'i) differed with his teacher, al-Imam Muhammad Ibn Idrees ash-Shafi'i, over an issue while the imam was delivering a lesson in the mosque. So he angrily got up and went home.
At night, Yunus heard a knock on his door and asked who it was. The one knocking answered, "Muhammad Ibn Idrees!"
Yunus thought of everyone who he knew by that name except the Imam. Upon opening the door, he was shocked to see Imam Shafi'i Rahmatullahi Alayhi.


The Imam said:
"O Yunus! Hundreds of issues unite us, and only one issue divided us?
Don't try to be triumphant in all differences; sometimes, winning hearts is more important than winning situations.
Don't demolish bridges you built and crossed, for you may need them again one day for your return.
Always hate what is wrong, but do not hate the one who errs.
Hate sin with all your heart, but forgive and have mercy on the sinner.
Criticize speech, but respect the speaker.
Our job is to wipe out the disease, not the patient."

Apakah Yang Dimaksudkan Dengan Wasiat?

Hari ini jika ditanyakan kepada orang ramai “sudahkah anda berwasiat?” masih ramai di kalangan masyarakat Islam di Malaysia memberikan jawapan yang pelbagai. Ada segelintir masyarakat yang memahami bahawa soalan yang diajukan kepada mereka itu bermaksud ‘menulis wasiat’ dan ada segelintir yang lain memahami maksudnya sebagai pemberian sebahagian harta kepada bukan waris setelah berlakunya kematian. Itu tidak termasuk lagi yang memahami wasiat hanya untuk golongan berada saja.
Disini jelas menunjukan bahawa berlakunya kekeliruan dalam masyarakat tentang maksud perkataan wasiat itu sendiri. Jadi apakah yang dimaksudkan dengan soalan diatas sebenarnya? hal ini penting untuk anda ketahui bagi memudahkan anda membuat perancangan dan pentadbiran harta pusaka kelak.
WASIAT adalah satu perkataan yang membawa beberapa maksud sebenarnya. Asal perkatan ini adalah datangnya daripada Bahasa Arab. Mari kita tengok beberapa maksud perkataan ini.
  1. Pesanan

Salah satu maksud wasiat adalah pesanan. Ketika menulis wasiat elemen pesanan ini boleh dibahagikan kepada beberapa jenis seperti pesanan untuk sentiasa mentaati Allah swt dan Rasulullah saw, pesanan untuk sentiasa menjaga hubungan baik sesama ahli keluarga dan sebagainya.
Bagi lelaki pastinya anda perasan setiap kali dalam khutbah Jumaat dibacakan akan ada ungkapan “Uushiikum waiyyaya bittaqwallah”. Perkataan ‘uushiikum’ itu bermaksud ‘aku berpesan kepada kamu semua’
  1. Pemberian Kepada Bukan Waris Faraid

Wasiat juga bermaksud pemberian. Pemberian ini adalah dikhususkan kepada penerima yang bukan tergolong dalam waris faraid. Ketika menulis wasiat adalah menjadi suatu galakkan kepada pewasiat untuk memperuntukkan maksimum 1/3 daripada keseluruhan hartanya untuk diwasiatkan kepada sesiapa sahaja dengan niat untuk melakukan amal jariah samada sedekah ataupun waqaf.
Mengapa terhad kepada 1/3 saja? Ini adalah berdasarkan sebuah hadis Rauslullah saw Dari mu’adz bin jabal ra beliau berkata:
“Rasulullah saw bersabda: sesungguhnya Allah mengizinkan kepadamu untuk menyedekahkan 1/3 dari hartamu ketika kamu hendak meninggal dunia untuk menambahkan lagi amal kebaikanmu.” (Riwayat Daruqutthni)
  1. Pemegang Amanah

Wasiat juga boleh dimaksudkan sebagai pemegang amanah. Oleh sebab itu dalam sebuah dokumen wasiat, ada elemen perlantikan WASI. Wasi inilah yang dikatakan sebagai pemegang amanah. Wasi dilantik dengan matlamat menjadi ‘orang tengah’ yang diberikan amanah oleh pewasiat agar mentadbir urus segala harta pusaka peninggalannya untuk diagihkan mengikut kaedah yang dikehendaki pewasiat.
Ini adalah berdasarkan kepada sebuah hadis Rasulullah saw yang diriwayatkan oleh Sufiyan bin ‘Uyainah daripada Hsham bin ‘Urwah berkata:
“Terdapat 7 orang dalam kalangan sahabat Rasulillah saw, antaranya Saydina Osman, al-Miqdad dan Abdul Rahman bin ‘Auf telah membuat wasiat iaitu dengan melantik Zubair untuk menjaga harta mereka dan memberi nafkah kepada anak-anak mereka (menjaga kebajikan anak-anak mereka).”
Oleh yang demikian, perlantikan wasi merupakan elemen yang sangat penting dalam penulisan suatu dokumen wasiat yang menjadi penentu samada ianya sah atau sebaliknya dari sudut undang-undang. Ketiadaan elemen ini dalam dokumen wasiat anda akan merencatkan usaha pentadbiran harta pusaka kelak. 
  1. Dokumen Wasiat

Wasiat juga bermaksud dokumen wasiat itu sendiri. Ini adalah bersumberkan hadis Rasulullah saw yang bermaksud:-
“Seorang Muslim yang mempunyai sesuatu untuk diwasiatkan tidak sepatutnya tidur dua malam berturut-turut melainkan dia menulis wasiat disisinya.” (Riwayat Bukhari dan Muslim)
Hadis diatas juga memberi maksud supaya tiap-tiap seorang individu Muslim sangat dituntut untuk menulis wasiat bahkan ada sesetengah pendapat ulama’ mengatakan ianya menjadi wajib jika seseorang Muslim itu memiliki hutang. 
Kesimpulannya berdasarkan penjelasan ringkas diatas dapatlah difahami bahawa jika anda ditanya dengan soalan seperti diatas atau yang sama maksud dengannya maka secara umumnya anda bolehlah faham akan maksudnya iaitu merujuk kepada menulis wasiat. 

Agak janggal jika orang bertanyakan soalan diatas bagi maksud tujuan selain daripada itu. Diharapkan dengan artikel ringkas ini dapat memberikan pencerahan kepada anda tentang topik yang saya bawakan kali ini. Semoga ianya dapat membantu anda khususnya dalam hal berkaitan dengan perancangan dan pentadbiran harta pusaka.

10 Ways to Be Happier at Work


1. Plan your day

Whether you do it the night before, on the commute or once you sit at your desk, setting out a clear schedule of tasks and goals will improve your productivity and help stave off slumps of inactivity or boredom.
You should plan simple jobs for first thing and right after lunch to ease you into your work. Pick out a high point to look forward to and schedule around it.
A good plan will keep the work from piling up and at the end of the day you should feel more accomplished.

2. Personalise your workspace

In a typical nine to five, Monday to Friday job, you spend around 35 hours a week in one spot, working hard and smart. It makes sense, then, that your work space should feel like your space.
Employer policies on personalisation vary but there should be some scope for jazzing up your desk. This might be framed photos, stylish stationery or even just a customised desktop.
It has been suggested that customising your work area with plants and photos can make you feel more secure and stable in your job.

3. Get organised

Keep a to-do list like Any.do or workflow application like Trello open and up to date at your desk.
This will not only help you stick to your daily goals but also prioritise better and keep up a steady rhythm of activity
Checking off meetings and projects as you go will give you a little boost and provide evidence to the contrary on the days you feel like you aren't contributing.

4. Set long-term goals

As well as focusing on the day-to-day, you should keep a few things about where you want to end up in mind.
Whether you want to move up the ladder in your current career or move on to new pastures, visualising your path should encourage you in your present pursuits.
How does what you're doing now tie in to a 10 year timeline? You don't have to know every detail right now, but it's worth considering.

5. Reward yourself

Achievements, big and small, should be celebrated.
Did you ace that presentation? Treat yourself to a special meal. Just finish a big project? Maybe it's time to use up some leave and take a long weekend.
Planning a reward ahead of time can give you extra incentive to get the job done.
Positive reinforcement and self-management are key to inspiring enthusiasm for your work.

6. Be honest with yourself

Don't take on mountains of work or volunteer for things you simply can't do.
The momentary approval from your boss isn't worth the upset later. Being realistic about your strengths and weaknesses will boost your confidence and help you improve.
Work-related stress causes financial services workers 25 days' worth of productivity a year, according to research from Britain's Healthiest Workplace (BSW).
Knowing yourself and your limits will not only curb an unhealthy mentality but help focus what it actually is you want from your job.

7. Leave your desk (occasionally)

Wandering aimlessly around the office might be a bad idea but stretching your legs every so often is a good habit to adopt.
Taking a trip up and down a few flights of stairs or just going to make a cup of tea will help stop stiffness and boredom from creeping up on you.
Breaks keep your brain more active and should help if you are prone to procrastination.

8. Reach out at lunchtime

Eating alone might bring a little rare serenity to your schedule, but doing it every day is just downright lonely.
Invite a colleague to join you and even get out of the building for a walk and a change of scenery. If that isn't feasible, make a personal call or FaceTime a friend during your break.
Making time to enjoy some company is healthy and a good old gab is an excellent way to cheer yourself up.

9. Smile

You may have every reason not to but smiling anyway can improve your mood greatly.
Forbes reported that smiling improves your own mood and the mood of those around you.
Displaying a positive attitude will affect how others interact with you and will help boost worker interactions.

10. Switch off at hometime

We're all guilty of working longer than we should or letting that one project weigh on our minds 24/7.
But doing this contributes to stress and feelings of resentment towards your job.

Try to reduce the amount of time you work from home in the evenings and on the weekend, if you can. Spend quality time with your family and community. And, be sure to switch off your devices a couple of hours before bed to help you get a better sleep.

Malaysia is most Muslim-friendly nation, says travel study


KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia tops the ranks once again for being the most Muslim friendly nation for tourists.
This is the second consecutive year that Malaysia has been in the number one spot for halal travel in the Global Muslim Travel Index (GMTI).
The MasterCard-CrescentRating Global Muslim Travel Index 2016 covered 130 destinations – including 92 non-Muslim countries – to benchmark how destinations are catering to the Muslim travel market.
Malaysia scored 81.9 out of hundred in the index. The United Arab Emirates is in second place with a score of 74.7 with Turkey in third spot with 73.9. Indonesia was in fourth spot with a score of 70.6. Singapore scored 68.4.
The study reveals that there were an estimated 117 million Muslim visitor arrivals globally, representing almost 10% of the entire travel market, according to CrescentRating.
The study forecasts Muslim visitor arrivals to reach 186 million by 2020, with a market value exceeding US$200 billion.
The CEO of CrescentRating and HalalTrip, Fazal Bahardeen, said: “One of the biggest trends we are seeing is non-OIC destinations making a concerted effort to attract the Muslim tourist and they now represent over 63% of the destinations covered in the GMTI.
“For example, Japan and the Philippines have taken some major steps over the last few months to diversify their visitor arrivals and boost their economy in the process.”
All 130 destinations in the GMTI were scored against a backdrop of criteria that included suitability as a family holiday destination, the level of services and facilities it provides, accommodation options, marketing initiatives as well as visitor arrivals.
Top 10 Muslim Friendly Destinations (Muslim countries):
1. Malaysia
2. United Arab Emirates
3. Turkey
4. Indonesia
5. Qatar
6. Saudi Arabia
7. Oman
8. Morocco
9. Jordan
10. Egypt

3. Britain
