Life of a Reverted Muslim

"O believers enter into Islam completely and do not follow the footsteps of Shaitan, surely he is your clear-cut enemy. If you falter after receiving the clear-cut message, then keep in mind that Allah is Mighty, Wise. Are they waiting for Allah to come down to them in the shadow of clouds, along with the angels, and make His decision known? Ultimately all matters will be presented to Allah for decision"
(Surah Al-Baqara, Ayah 208-210)

Malaysia Reverted Muslim Gathering @ Ipoh 8 Jan 2011


Yesterday, 8 Jan 2011 we I went to Ipoh with a group of Malaysia Reverted Muslim FB group member. Alhamdulilah, when I plan this event i do not expect such a turnout but Allah have his plan so we have total of 11 member from Klang Valley going to Ipoh for this gathering and it is more than that if not for some last minute withdrawal of some member due to work commitment and etc but we fully understand. Here is our schedule & activities 7.40am-8.30am (Group at Mcdonalds Bandar Sri Damansara) - Zhang Farish (Ah Hong) is the 1st one to arrive although I am the nearest of them all BECAUSE I bought some kuih for the journey. (7.40am) - Adam Eh with his 2 pretty lady, Siti Hajar (Hajar) and our evergreen lovely Kak Nadiah reach shortly (7.55am) - Nurul Light (Nurul Aida) reached (7.56am) - at last I reach there (7.58am) - Faisal Wong (8.01am) - Shafiq Guan (8.10am) - June, Kuan Beng & Nurul Izzah (8.15am) While some of them are having breakfast at McD (org kaya punya lunch ni), I went to Shell to bought 1 cartoon of mineral water for them. After everyone had parked their car at the shoplot we start our journey to Ipoh. 8.30am-11.15am (Journey to Destiny) While on our way to Ipoh, we stop at Tapah to release some tension.. some only tension but some stress...
"We have ultraman joining us too"
We continue our journey after Shafiq Guan, June, Nurul Izzah & Kuan Beng finish their lunch while I filled my car. We reach Ipoh Simpang Pulai Toll and we follow the instruction by Des Tiny but end up he is at other road and not the road we are in but luckily we have a friend in GPS (Guan Punya Sistem) so we reached MACMA office safely much earlier than Des Tiny.. Burung hantu oh burung hantu... We receive a fantastic treatment from MACMA Ipoh and once we reach, lunch is ready. Good for us but bad for Shafiq & geng... We move in to the hall after our lunch to start our gathering... and oh ya, we also have one very little cute girl joining us for this occasion. She is the daughter of Garfields... ops sorry I mean Ikhwan Ng...
"Ikhwan's princess - Damia"
12pm-7pm - The Gathering
"Members chatting before doa" We start our session with doa and hopefully Allah will bless our gathering and all the members.
After doa, Bro Ustaz Hafiz Ng is updating all the attendee about MACMA Ipoh recent & upcoming activities.
"Ustaz Hafiz Ng"
Right after Ustaz briefing, is my turn (cheng cheng cheng) to give my speech and introduce myself and why we are here. We are there to meet our brother & sister to foster better relationship also to set up a pro tem committee for a movement that we do not have the name yet.... but the movement is according to Islam.
"all concentrate when Owl aka Des Tiny spoke about his experience"
After my speech, we start a sharing session where we will need to introduce ourselves like family background, when we revert, what is the challenge and most important (actually I coin this idea for Adam Eh & Des Tiny cos they looking for ehem ehem ehem still) is about their AVAILABILITY . They might be single but not available like some of our sister. Correct right Sis Hajar?? Started with me, Des Tiny, Kak Nadiah & Sarah Lam before we go for our 1st break. i will blog about each of their experience individually later. After the break, Faisal Wong share his follow by Adam Eh & Nurul Izzah. Once all done, Dato Dr. Fadzli Cheah arrive and we request him to share his experience as well and surprisingly, Mr Steven Lai (Non Muslim) voluntary request to share his thought and perception (again I will shared this in the blog post later).
"Steven Lai & Dato Dr. Fadzli Cheah"
Once Steven finish his sharing, immediately I started to shared with everyone what is the objective we are there and we are proposing to set up a pro tem committee in Perak and basically everyone can join us be it Born Muslim, Revert Muslim from any races can join us as long as they agree to help according to the principal and teaching of Islam. So I started to shared a story about Nenek Fatemah (I going to blog about it soon as its been completed), story about Bro Abdul Rahman Ooi & Bro Mohd Adam Lee. I become so sensitive that I cried when I shared a story about Bro Adam Lee exchanging sms with me. Oh my.. I cried in front of so many people but only Allah knew why I cant control it... (sorry to those who attend as you have to watch a adult cried and anyone of you who have that photo please dun upload it ya, i really apologize for that embarrassing moment).. After my blog post about his story which i highlighted in Facebook, Bro Adam sms me and ask am I transfering money to him and I replied yes and also apology because i forgot to inform him abfter my blog post. The next day Bro Adam Lee sms me "thank. i told my kids and show them your photo & say this uncle help us, after you all grow up must help other", i replied "no need to mention that bro... Is my pleasure to assist and furthermore is just a small amount" but he replied "have to if not they think where I get the money and my kids will careful to use the money".
"Bro Adam Lee with his kids"
"Nurul Hanani & Nurul Wardah"
Practically, at the end of the gathering everyone that attend it AGREED to the formation of this movement and is fully supported by Dato Dr. Fadzli Cheah and the Perak MACMA Committee and its member. We also unexpectedly receive RM 550 donation which is really a big surprise. 8pm-10.15pm - dinner & journey to KL This gathering will not be successful without the assistance from this person. He help to facilitate all the necessary arrangement like venue, food & etc. Thanks to Bro Nazrin for all the hard work to ensure our gathering sun smoothly. Thanks to sis Marlina for facilitating this from the back. Last but not least thanks to everyone of you who make it to the gathering and spend your precious Saturday in Ipoh. Also to everyone who plan to join us but unable to join us because of last minute work commitment and we fully understand that and hope you will be able to join us next round. Tentatively our next gathering will be in JB. Any suggestion people?

  5. As salaamualaikum wa rahmatullah dear brethren,

    Allahumma salli ala Sayyidina Muhammmadin nuril anwar wa rahmatul alamin wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa barik wa sallaam.

    I wish to inform you of Ustaz Zhulkeflee Ismail who was once the education principal of Darul Arqam Converts Association of Singapore in the 80's to 90's. He has an excellent educational blogsite called "an-naseehah.blogspot.com" with related links to his other blogs, and facebook.
    Ustaz is now lecturing as a "pensyarah bebas"

    Best regards,
    Bro. Nazri
