I just want to clear the misunderstanding, if there is. This is regarding a post entitled ''A Sad Beginning to Ramadhan''. Actually, as clearly indicated at the very bottom of the post, I copied it from http://iiumbloggers.com/2008/09/a-sad-beginning-to-ramadhan/ . So, the readers should respond in the shade of the writer, Master J, a blogger from Kulliyyah of Sciences if I am not mistaken.
My purpose of having posted the cited issue is to make us reflect on one verse of the quran surah Aali-'Imraan, 3:185 in relation to my article in my blog entitled 'Kullu Nafsin Zaaiqatul Maut'.
I was interested with few sentences in the post written by Master J: ''I hope this serves as a reminder to all of us on how we can never anticipate or know when our time will come,'' and ''The timing was just rubbing salt into the wound. 1 day before Ramadhan. That’s why people say (and I’ve said too) that we must always make the most of Ramadhan, because we never know if we will get the chance to live through the next one,'' of which are explained in my article too.
After all, the post is in the view of the writer, meaning to say it is up to the readers whether to accept it or not. The writer might cause a problem when he posted something that is not authentic and turned out to be controversial. He also got some comments from his fellows advicing him to check for its authenticity. I dropped a comment too. However, to be husnuzhon, i think the writer wanted to focus on the lesson from the story. And I think the post serves as an update to what is happening in our beloved iium community consisting of IIUM Gombak, Kuantan, CENFOS and not to forget Nilai. After all, he did not mention any specific names involved. In the Holy Quran, Allah also told us bad stories. These stories are for us to extract lessons and not to blame specific individuals and tribes.
And I, having cited the post without filtering every single information from it, appologize. My bad! Actually, the rule of quoting is legally like that, without removing or adding any additional information to it. But, maybe I should have stressed that the post was quoted from somewhere. Futhermore, I should have expressed my view regarding this issue too as I also have my personal opinion on the issue. Actually, I know about the story as my little brother is a friend of the boy in story. My brother is currently studying at CENFOS and he was among the first being informed. He also has a clear story about what happened and here is not the place to mention it.
It is not that I obviously do not know about the real story as commented by Prihatin saying “DO NOT make assumption if u obviously do not know the real story...", if the comment is for me. Or otherwise (i.e. if the comment is for the writer) there should be no problem =P.
To Prihatin, thanks anyway for your comment that made me feel like writing back. Actually I did not manage to read the whole comment as the post was deleted without me being informed at least one word :'( .
And again, I apologize for any inconvenience caused. Most importantly, we should take lesson from every event we heard or read, not to blame or criticize the subjects personally.
P/s: To our 12 sisters, be strong! Hope to hear more stories like that in the future. Haha just kidding!
