Ghostrider Berlatih Kembali

Ghostrider buncit kembali. Kepayahan berbulan-bulan menyusutkan diri secara natural telah hancur dalam dua minggu. Enam bulan yang diperuntuk untuk nyahkan 10kg tampak sia-sia. Hapus hanya dalam 2 minggu.



Usus dan salur darah Ghostrider kembali berminyak. Minyak Mazola, Sawit dan sebagainya adalah tinggalan dari gumpalan rendang, gulai, kari, masak itu dan ini. Bahaya minyak ini, ia mampu menyumbat saluran air sebuah apartmen. 'Special Chemical' boleh diguna untuk meredakan kesesakan. Tapi manusia boleh mati jika minum chemical ini, termasuk Ghostrider. Tiada jalan pintas. Dia perlu berlatih kembali.

Ghostrider jadi rajin. Beberapa hari sebelum bertemu puaknya, dia sudah dulu pusing crank. Hari pertama bertemu dia, aku nampak dulu perut dia, baru aku nampak muka dia. Dia kayuh steady 2 round kriterium. Peluh berminyak lalu menguasai permukaan luar tubuh badannya. Beberapa detik rehat di Z&K, selepas lupus 2-3 gelas air, dia sedut rokok satu batang. Sepengetahuan aku, asap adalah diet specis hantu jin. Tapi dia ada kurang hisap rokok, kira satu pencapaian.

Hari lain di'set' untuk puak lagi ramai. Tak ramai pun cuma 3 orang. Selain aku dan dia, lagi satu adalah sarjan nama macam cerita P. Ramlee.

Ghostrider bikin gegar. Lap pertama terus tarik 25kmj. Kira lajulah ikut standard kami, calon juara mukim. Kami tak minat jadi juara dunia. Tiada lagi nikmat jika naik basikal sponsor. Ghostrider cukup steady, aku kasi ruang dulu 3-4 tiang. Sarjan cucuk angin dia. Mesti best, sebab saiz lebar badan dia cukup untuk cover angin sarjan.

Masuk lap kedua, dia kasi sarjan lead. "Oh biasalah, kasi tukar pulak, bukan apa-apa", hati besar aku terdetik. Tanpa warning tiba-tiba prestasi dia menurun secara mendadak. Lalu aku berjaya mengiring tepinya, lantas dia menunjuk-nunjuk bahagian perutnya. Aku potong dan kejar sarjan di depan. Meter murah sudah tunjuk 30kmj. Masih tidak boleh jadi juara dunia.

Sesekali aku menoleh, tiada lampu kucing kelihatan. Mungkin bateri 'kong'. Dia di belakang tadi, dan di depannya ada simpang jalan 'ayam'. Mungkin dia masuk situ untuk ternak 'ayam' di simpang satu lagi.

Telahan awal memang tepat. Memang betul dia menjenguk ternakan 'ayam'nya. Tak apalah. Cukuplah 2 lap, "Mari kita lepak di Jazee!".

***

"Tadi aku makan nasi ayam", kata Ghostrider.

"Tiba-tiba ayam tu cucuk-cucuk perut aku, menyesal aku makan tadi", sambungnya lagi.

Aku order 100 plus, roti telur, separuh nasi goreng ayam sarjan & mee segera sup. Licin. Aku bersandar diam sampai habis sesi.

The Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad SAW

Sunnah (سنة, plural سنن sunan) literally means "trodden path", and therefore, the sunnah of Muhammad, prophet of Islam, means "the way and the manners of Muhammad".

How Did Prophet Muhammad Himself Respond to Insults?



The Sunnah of Muhammad refers to his traditions and actions, including specific words, actions, and practices. This is in contrast to the hadith, which contains just his words. However, the two doctrines were closely related in the beginnings of Islam. The Sunnah is significant to the spirituality of Islam because it continues teaching Muslims how their prophet acted during his life, and this allows the continuing generations of Muslims to be able to know his ways. The Sunnah addresses ways of life dealing with friends, family, and government.

Do Good to Those That Harm You



How far the hadith contributes to the sunnah is disputed, and highly dependent on the context. In the context of Islamic Law, Imam Malik and the Hanafi scholars assumed to have differentiated between the sunnah and the hadith. In some instances, for example, Imam Malik is supposed to have rejected hadiths that reached him because, according to him, they were against the 'established practice of the people of Medinah'.

How Did Prophet Muhammad Treat Non-Muslims?

A Man Called Terrorist

October 2002. In the wake of the terrorist bombing in Bali on October 12, reporter Evan Williams travelled to Solo in Central Java and spoke to the man many people believe was behind the attack. Watch the video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KWEhhlaQDHc

Here's another video of him (the so-called terrorist leader) explaining the truth about Jihad & Dakwah according to the Quran.



"O you who believe! If a Fasiq (liar - evil person) comes to you with any news, verify it, lest you should harm people in ignorance, and afterwards you become regretful for what you have done". (Al-Hujraat:6)

"Wahai orang-orang yang beriman sekiranya datang kepada kamu orang fasik dengan berita-berita maka siasatlah (terlebih dahulu) kebenarannya (kerana bimbang) kalau-kalau kamu mengenai sesuatu kaum tanpa pengetahuan, lalu kamu menyesal atas perbuatanmu". (Al-Hujurat:6)

Steroid Hill's Joggers: Beware!

When there's nowhere else to go, Frim is the answer. However, we were quite dissapointed with the joggers. Would you jog elsewhere other than Steroid Hill? Move! Move! (Ada yang tersondol karang... Rover tak cukup?)



Total of 4 riders turn up for the day. It was the fisrt ride with Miharo after so many weeks. Everybody seems to be busy nowadays, and we're busy calculating our heart rate!





I always once in awhile bring beginners here. Even its a bit tiring, its the best way to check the health of your lungs and heart! Don't be shy to walk or push your bike to the top of the hill :)

Trail Riding: Empangan Batu

When I last visited Empangan Batu or Batu Dam over 5 months ago, the trails was good, slippery and fun as usual. A lot has happened since then. It attracted less and less visitors. Some trails were missing due to overgrown trees and grass. There are too many fallen trees, some lanslides and more ruts all over the place. Not as fun as it used to be.





The only good thing was, I had the opportunity to ride along with Shimano's unofficial unpaid rider Mr. Badoot, and witnessing first hand his newly invented single roller derailleur hehehe...



I have my own invention as well of what I called "Chestcam". However, I had problem with my video editing software, and the footage is not as good as I expected.

Smoking Is Not Haram?

I once heard my friend said, "Smoking makes you climb stronger! Don't believe what the doctor says!" Of course, I'm not totally agreed with what the doctor said (they're only human) but I don't believe my friend either. Didn't your uncle died last week because of lung cancer? Oh, It was not because of smoking... sudah suratan takdir. Here's a compiled lectures about the subject smoking in islam!



Islamic scholars have historically had mixed views about tobacco, and until recently, cigarette smoking has not been unanimously forbidden or even discouraged. Maybe, the next video will change your mind. Jazakallah Khair.

Narrated Ibn Umar: Once Allah's Apostle stood amongst the people, glorified and praised Allah as He deserved and then mentioned the dajjal saying, "l warn you against him (i.e. the dajjal) and there was no prophet but warned his nation against him. No doubt, Noah warned his nation against him but I tell you about him something of which no prophet told his nation before me. You should know that he is one-eyed, and Allah is not one-eyed." Sahih Bukhari.

Pulau Meranti Epic Part 2

Perjalanan diteruskan demi mengembalikan zaman kegemilangan sebagai 'Photostunt' tidak terkemuka tanpa sebarang pendapatan. Berkat kesabaran akhirnya ketemu suatu latar unik ala 'Mountain Bike UK' di ketinggian lebih 300kaki dari paras lutut.



Perjalanan asal yang dirancang sepatutnya berlanjut di trail antara dua highway. Tetapi manusia itu memang lemah dari segi perlaksanaan. Akhirnya tersasar ke puncak yang sebahagian besarnya sedang dibinasakan oleh 'tangan-tangan' manusia atas dasar pembangunan.



Apapun, latar 'Bukit Batu Hitam' serta rerumput kekuningan ini cukup sesuai untuk 'posing' ditambah dengan cuaca suam-suam jerebu, tampak seperti kabus.





Hari harus menjadi semakin panas tanpa jerebu. Perjalanan berpatah-balik menuruni Bukit Batu Hitam ini terlalu menonggeng, dan itu menjadi punca untuk dua kaum menolak turun. Perjalanan seterusnya kembali pada perancangan asal; mencari trail di antara dua highway. Sepatutnya ia berhampiran sebuah pusat jagaan pokok/bunga.

Akhirnya ketiga-tiga kaum itu sampai di pemuka trail, lalu memilih untuk masuk melalui jalan belakang yang tampak lebih mencabar. Kesudahannya... tolak dan mendaki! Dan kami berakhir di puncak bukit yang salah, jalan mati.

Namun kami masih hidup, lalu menggunakan sisa-sisa tenaga yang ada lalu mencari jalan turun. Laluan tersekat, seolah-olah kami dinafikan kebebasan untuk keluar sesudah memasuki kawasan itu. Demi keselamatan nyawa, kami usahakan juga untuk keluar dengan apa cara sekali pun. Kami berjaya!



Tidak jauh dari situ, terdapat satu laluan ke sebelah kiri. Si Jawa memutuskan untuk mengintai laluan yang akhirnya berjaya menemukan doubletrack di antara dua highway. Ini yang dicari sebenarnya, laluan sepanjang hampir dua kilometer pergi dan balik berdasarkan Google Earth.





Lorong masuk ke kawasan ini sebenarnya dilarang untuk sebarang aktiviti kerana merupakan laluan kabel bervoltan tinggi. Namun kawasan persekitarannya sudah menjadi tapak penanaman rumput komersil dan terdapat juga sebuah kandang kambing.



Setelah menghabiskan masa disekitarnya kami berpatah balik untuk kembali ke Putra Perdana. Satu-satunya laluan yang dipilih adalah melalui Kilang Bas berhampiran, tapi di lorong masuk yang berlainan dari lorong keluar.



Kami pilih jalan senang, tarmac all the way. Tapi di depan itu terdapat pagar tertutup, namun ada sedikit laluan bukit kecil bersebelahan. Daki saja, bukan tinggi pun. Memang tak tinggi pun, tapi ada anjing! Berlonggok-longgok anjing keluar dari lubang-lubang kediaman seperti filem 'Planet of the Apes', lalu mengejar Si Jawa yang di depan sekali. Si Jawa cuba mengeluarkan kaki untuk menyepak lidah anjing yang terjelir digenangi air liur meleleh. Tapi kakinya tiba-tiba tersangkut pada clipless pedal AtomLabnya tanpa dapat dikeluarkan, sedang anjing-anjing itu semakin bernafsu untuk mencium RD Shimano XTnya!

Setelah puas berborak beberapa meter secara kasar dengan anjing-anjing tersebut, akhirnya anjing bajingan itu mengalah kerana gagal mendapatkan RD Shimano XT 06' itu secara percuma. Dua lagi kaum terkemudian sudah awal-awal lagi 'chicken out' dan masuk highway lalu bertemu semula di pintu utama tadi.

Dipendekkan cerita kerana penat menaip, kami masuk ke trail pepohonan getah bersebelahan Kilang Bas menuju jalan pulang. Dari getah ke sawit. Dari sawit mendaki laluan baru sebelum berpatah balik downhill menggigil beberapa meter. Downhill ini tidak sesuai untuk hardtail, tanyalah satu kaum itu yang sengal bahunya.



Kami akhirnya keluar di singletrack berhampiran. Sempat juga dua kaum dari mereka menjengah satu lagi singletrack berhampiran. Ianya dipercayai dapat menemukan laluan yang keluar di ladang sayur berdekatan, akan dicuba lain kali.



Laluan pulang ke Putra Perdana adalah doubletrack terbuka yang akan merentasi ladang sayur sebelum keluar di kandang ternakan lembu berhampiran highway dan tasik.



Laluan lapang ini sesuai untuk kayuhan rekreasi santai ini berakhir di satu sign, namun kami gagal menjumpai 'sniper' terbabit!



Dan akhirnya jerebu-jerebu itu hilang, lalu kami pulang dengan wajah yang sedikit terbakar pada kepanasan jam 12 tengahari.



Putra perdana mungkin menjadi satu-satunya taman di Benua Dengkil jajahan Sepang yang menyediakan singletrack di tepi-tepi jalan utamanya.

Pulau Meranti Epic Part 1

Seperti dipersetujui kelmarin sebelumnya, tiga pembasikal pelbagai kaum; Bugis, Jawa dan Mamak bertemu untuk menjelajah persekitaran misteri Pulau Meranti.



Dulu, persekitaran Pulau Meranti dipercayai sebuah kampung yg hijau damai, namun telah bertukar menjadi kawasan yang lebih panas hasil 'tangan-tangan' manusia, demi memenuhi kesenangan 'orang luar' dipembangunan perumahan berhampiran.

Awalnya, talian trail asal telah dipelopori oleh Si Jawa di sekitar pertengahan 2005. Sehingga 2009 terbaru ini, sistem talian trail ini telah dipanjangkan bersama seorang lagi kaum dari atas kenderaan Modenas KRISS110 SE dan Skuter Suzuki tayar pancit. Hasilnya termaktub di dalam pengembaraan pertama berbasikal sepenuhnya ini.

Sebahagian singeltrack telah pupus dimamah tumbuhan semulajadi. Kali ini juga, Trail Pokok Ceri tidak dilalui kerana kegagalan menemui sambungan yang ideal. Permulaan kayuhan seawal 8.15 pagi adalah dari foodcourt Putra Perdana yang sudah dihiasi oleh Pusat Futsal terbuka setelah dirasmikan oleh aksi makcik-makcik dan bolanya pada bulan sebelumnya.

Singletrack Siantan/Kolam Pancing menjadi pembuka selera, namun hajat untuk keluar di doubletrack berhampiran gagal kerana kawasan terbabit sudah dipagar oleh peneroka haram. Lantas kami menuju ke alternatif laluan menuju terus ke Kg Sebok.



Damai di Kg Sebok masih seperti beberapa tahun sebelumnya. Pantas berlalu dari situ, kami terus menuju ke Kawasan Kolam Pancing dan seterusnya melalui kawasan kebun durian kampung menuju ke kandang penternakan lembu berhampiran.



Laluan ini berpenghujung di satu persimpangan. Ke kiri akan sedikit mendaki sebelum turun dan keluar di kawasan perkampungan berjalan tar. Ke kanan akan sedikit menurun sebelum membelok ke kiri dan memasuki persekitaran singletrack di celah-celah kebun sayur komersil. Kami memilih untuk ke kanan.



Kebun sayur ini secara majoriti diselenggarakan oleh pekerja asing yang rata-rata cukup mesra dan mudah untuk berinteraksi. Kawasan ini terletak Kg Sungai Rasau, Pulau Meranti.



Dari Kg Sungai Rasau, satu-satunya lorong keluar terletak berhampiran kilang bas. Setakat ini, kayuhan masih dikira pada tahap 'memanaskan badan' tanpa sebarang dakian penyentap jantung.



Jadi, di hadapan itu ada dua bukit tertinggi di Pulau Meranti. Setinggi lebih 300kaki/ft. Cukup curam ditambah dengan permukaan kering berbatu kerikil.



Hanya satu kaum berani mendaki yang pertama separuh jalan, sebelum berpatah balik kerana kecewa, kerana dua kaum lagi hanya sanggup melihat dari bawah.



Perjalanan peringkat pertama berakhir di bukit kedua, dengan keadaan terpaksa mendaki walau apa cara sekali pun. Secara keseluruhannya, perjalanan atau keadaan trail di peringkat ini adalah terbuka tanpa sebarang khemah (canopy). Mujur cuaca pagi itu agak suam-suam jerebu bercampur mendung berarak dan hujan di tempat lain.



Peringkat seterusnya adalah persekitaran Bukit Batu Hitam (kelabu) 'High Density'. Setakat perjalanan ini, kami masih belum dikejar anjing!

The Choice is Yours: Why Islam?

Have you ever read a story in the Qur'an about how Prophet Ibrahim a.s searching for the right God? Until he found Allah!

Pernahkah anda membaca kisah di dalam Al Qur'an tentang Nabi Ibrahim a.s mencari siapa Tuhannya? Sehingga beliau mengenal siapa Allah!



The next video is the story of a girl who converted to islam after seeing Youtube videos on Islam, and read about the story of Prophet Ibrahim a.s searching for his God as stated in the Qur'an.

Video seterusnya adalah kisah seorang wanita yang memeluk islam hanya selepas menonton video dari YouTube mengenai islam, dan bacalah mengenai kisah nabi Ibrahim a.s mencari Tuhannya sebagaimana yang terkandung di dalam Al Qur-an.

Nicole Queen: Converts after seeing Youtube videos on Islam.



A Story of Prophet Ibrahim a.s - Al An'am Surah 6 Makkiyah (Ayat 74-83)

006.074
And when Ibrahim said to his sire, Azar: Do you take idols for gods? Surely I see you and your people in manifest error.
006.075
And thus did We show Ibrahim the kingdom of the heavens and the earth and that he might be of those who are sure.
006.076
So when the night over-shadowed him, he saw a star; he said: "This is my Lord." So when it set, he said: "I do not love the setting ones."
006.077
Then when he saw the moon rising, he said: "This is my Lord." So when it set, he said: "If my Lord had not guided me I should certainly be of the erring people."
006.078
Then when he saw the sun rising, he said: "This is my Lord, this is the greater." So when it set, he said: "O my people! surely I am clear of what you set up(with Allah)."
006.079
Surely I have turned myself, being upright, wholly to Him Who originated the heavens and the earth, and I am not of the polytheists.
006.080
And his people disputed with him. He said: "Do you dispute with me respecting Allah? And He has guided me indeed; and I do not fear in any way those that you set up with Him, unless my Lord pleases; my Lord comprehends all things in His knowledge; will you not then mind?
006.081
And how should I fear what you have set up (with Him), while you do not fear that you have set up with Allah that for which He has not sent down to you any authority; which then of the two parties is surer of security, if you know?"
006.082
Those who believe and do not mix up their faith with iniquity, those are they who shall have the security and they are those who go aright.
006.083
And this was Our argument which we gave to Ibrahim against his people; We exalt in dignity whom We please; surely your Lord is Wise, Knowing.

Kisah Nabi Ibrahim a.s - Al An'am Surah 6 Makkiyah (Ayat 74-83)

006.074
dan (ingatlah) ketika Ibrahim berkata kepada ayahnya Azar,"Pantaskah engkau menjadikan berhala-berhala itu sebagai tuhan? Sesungguhnya aku melihat engkau dan kaummu dalam kesesatan yang nyata."
006.075
Dan demikianlah Kami memperlihatkan kepada Ibrahim kekuasaan (Kami yang terdapat) di langit dan di bumi, dan agar dia termasuk orang-orang yang yakin.
006.076
Ketika malam telah menjadi gelap, dia (Ibrahim) melihat sebuah bintang (lalu) dia berkata, "Inilah tuhanku." Maka ketika bintang itu terbenam dia berkata, "Aku tidak suka kepada yang terbenam."
006.077
Lalu ketika dia melihat bulan terbit dia berkata, "Inilah tuhanku." Tetapi ketika bulan itu terbenam dia berkata, "Sungguh, jika Tuhanku tidak memberi petunjuk kepadaku, pastilah aku termasuk orang-orang yang sesat."
006.078
Kemudian ketika dia melihat matahari terbit, dia berkata, "Inilah tuhanku, ini lebih besar." Tetapi ketika matahari terbenam dia berkata, "Wahai kaumku! Sungguh, aku berlepas diri dari apa yang kamu persekutukan."
006.079
Aku hadapkan wajahku kepada (Allah) yang menciptakan langit dan bumi dengan penuh kepasrahan (mengikuti) agama yang benar, dan aku bukanlah termasuk orang-orang musyrik.
006.080
Dan kaumnya membantahnya. Dia (Ibrahim) berkata, "Apakah kamu hendak membantahku tentang Allah, padahal Dia benar-benar telah memberi petunjuk kepadaku? Aku tidak takut kepada (malapetaka dari) apa yang kamu persekutukan dengan Allah, kecuali Tuhanku menghendaki sesuatu. Ilmu Tuhanku meliputi segala sesuatu. Tidakkah kamu dapat mengambil pelajaran?
006.081
Bagaimana aku takut kepada apa yang kamu perskutukan (dengan Allah), padahal kamu tidak takut dengan apa yang Allah sendiri tidak menurunkan keterangan kepadamu untuk mempersekutukan-Nya. Manakah dari kedua golongan itu lebih berhak mendapat keamanan (dari malapetaka), jika kamu mengetahui?"
006.082
Orang-orang yang beriman dan tidak mencampuradukkan iman mereka dengan syirik, mereka itulah orang-orang yang mendapat rasa aman dan mereka mendapat petunjuk.
006.083
Dan itulah keterangan Kami yang kami berikan kepada Ibrahim untuk menghadapi kaumnya. Kami tinggikan darjat siapa yang Kami kehendaki. Sesungguhnya Tuhanmu Maha Bijaksana, Maha Mengetahui.


All praise and thanks are due to Allah. We praise and give thanks to Him. We seek His aid and ask for His forgiveness, and we seek Allah's refuge from the evil of ourselves and from our evil actions. Whomsoever Allah guides then none can misguide him, and whomsoever He misguides then none can guide him. I bear witness that none has the right to be worshipped except Allah, alone, having no partner, and I bear witness that Muhammad is His slave and His Messenger.

Segala puji dan syukur hanya untuk Allah. Kita memuji dan syukur kepada-Nya. Kepada-Nya kita memohon petunjuk dan keampunan, dan kepada-Nya kita mohon berlindung dari kejahatan diri sendiri dan perbuatan buruk kita. Sesiapa yang diberi petunjuk oleh Allah tiada yang mampu menyesatkanya, dan siapa yang disesatkan oleh Allah, tiada yang mampu menahannya. Aku jadi saksi bahawa tiada Tuhan yang wajar disembah selain Allah dan tiada sekutu bagi-Nya, dan Muhammad itu adalah hamba-Nya dan pesuruh-Nya.

Basikal, Pemimpin & Politik

Ada orang guna basikal untuk "JERIT"! Ada yang mahu bela rakyat sambil tersengih-sengih satu kali itu menuju ke Parlimen. Politik caci maki penuh benci & dendam. Tidak halal maki hamun, buka aib sesama manusia atas dasar politik apa lagi agama.



Sungguh telah diberi peringatan, namun fitrah manusia itu pelupa. Maka jika kamu berbantah sesama muslim, kembalilah kepada Al Qur'an.

Al Fajr Surah 89 Makkiyah
  1. Demi fajar,
  2. demi malam yang sepuluh,
  3. demi yang gelap dan yang ganjil,
  4. demi malam apabila berlalu.
  5. Adakah pada yang demikian itu terdapat sumpah (yang dapat diterima) bagi orang-orang yang berakal?
  6. Tidakkah engkau (Muhammad) memperhatikan bagaimana Tuhanmu berbuat terhadap (kaum) 'Ad?
  7. (iaitu) penduduk Iram (ibukota kaum 'Ad) yang mempunyai bangunan-bangunan yang tinggi,
  8. yang belum pernah dibangun (suatu kota) seperti itu, di negeri-negeri lain,
  9. dan (terhadap) kaum Samud yang memotong batu-batu besar di lembah,
  10. dan (terhadap) Fir'aun yang mempunyai pasak-pasak (bangunan yang besar),
  11. yang berbuat sewenang-wenang dalam negeri,
  12. lalu mereka banyak berbuat kerosakan dalam negeri itu,
  13. kerana itu Tuhanmu menimpakan cemeti azab kepada mereka,
  14. sungguh, Tuhanmu benar-benar mengawasi.
  15. Maka adapun manusia, apabila Tuhan mengujinya lalu memuliakannya dan memberinya kesenangan, maka dia berkata, "Tuhanku telah memuliakanku."
  16. Namun apabila Tuhan mengujinya lalu membatasi rezekinya, maka dia berkata, "Tuhanku telah menghinaku."
  17. Sekali-kali tidak! Bahkan kamu tidak memuliakan anak yatim,
  18. dan kamu tidak saling mengajak memberi makan orang miskin,
  19. sedangkan kamu memakan harta warisan dengan cara mencampurbaurkan (yang halal dan yang haram),
  20. dan kamu mencintai harta dengan kecintaan yang berlebihan.
  21. Sekali-kali tidak! Apabila bumi digoncangkan berturut-turut,
  22. dan datanglah Tuhanmu; dan malaikat berbaris-baris,
  23. dan pada hari itu diperlihatkan neraka Jahanam; pada hari itu sedarlah manusia, tetapi tidak berguna lagi kesedaran itu.
  24. Dia berkata, "Alangkah baiknya sekiranya dahulu aku mengerjakan (kebajikan) untuk hidupku ini."
  25. Maka pada hari itu tidak ada seorang pun yang mengazab seperti azab-Nya (yang adil),
  26. dan tidak ada seorang pun yang mengikat seperti ikatan-Nya.
  27. Wahai jiwa yang tenang!
  28. Kembalilah kepada Tuhanmu dengan hati yang redha dan diredhai-Nya.
  29. Maka masuklah ke dalam golongan hamba-hamba-Ku,
  30. dan masuklah ke dalam syurga-Ku.

Training di Malam Keliwon

Siri latih kayuhan bersama 'Ceplos' di malam2 'Keliwon'. Menurut lagenda, sesiapa yg mati di siang Keliwon, harus dijaga kuburnya di malam hari. Dibimbangi si mayat akan menjadi mangsa pembuat 'Minyak Dagu'. Begitulah setan menyesatkan manusia, khurafat sungguh!

Kayuhan menjadi saksi beberapa peristiwa2 pelik di malam Keliwon:

1. Pengayuh dari mereka bertaraf 'artis' akan menguap2 setiap kali tiba di puncak bukit. Mungkin sebagai pembayang betapa boringnya kayuhan di malam Keliwon.

2. Anjing pada malam jumaat tidak aktif mengejar kerana tidak mampu lari akibat sedang berjimak, sedang anjing2 yg lain pakat duduk keliling, sama ada mahu cover atau skodeng.

3. Pekerja kedai mamak akan 'blur' tentang waktu kedainya beroperasi. Kami sempat singgah satu kedai mamak di Cyberjaya. Jam sudah 11.50 malam. Mamak itu menunggu dgn penuh sabar di meja utk mengambil pesanan, sedang kami cuba parking basikal.

Aku: Mamak, sini tutup pukul berapa?
Mamak: Pukul 12.00
Aku: Huh???.....

Tuesday : Dapat check dari US, tak buat apa2 pun. Terima kasihlah pada yg rajin beri duit!



Wednesday : REST

Thursday : 1 jam 24.57 mins MTB onroad from Pulau Meranti to LDP highway. Betul2 kerja gila. Terpaksa memecut di tengah2 hiway sambil diapit oleh deruan2 kenderaan besar dikiri kanan! Malam ini juga paling byk anjing2 yg mahu bersembang sahut-menyahut sambil berlari2 anak dgn empunya 2 roda (Dst 27.54km, Av 19.4, Mx 43.5)

Friday : REST

Saturday : 1 jam 47.10 mins MTB onroad from Putra Perdana to Cyberjaya (MMU) to Pulau Meranti (Dst 29.09km, Av 16.2, Mx 54.5). Keseluruhan 3 climb sebelum berehat di puncak hentian tepi hiway baru nama apa ntah... MEX?

Sunday : Recce trail di petang hari on motorbike. Kolam pancing, jalan pembinaan, kandang lembu & tahi2nya, pokok durian, singletrack kebun sayur bla bla bla...

Monday : 0.38.24 mins MTB onroad from Putra Perdana to Bukit Puchong. Kayuhan untuk makan ikan kembung masak pedas sambil buat recovery ride kononnya. Hampir bertembung dgn pakcik kapcai ketika sedang super rempit turun yg tak berapa bukit pun! (Dst 13.48km, Av 20.9, Mx 41.0)

Jumlah keseluruhan kayuhan 229.91 mins 70.11km

The Sign: World Monetary System & Riba

There is a grand design that links international politics, international monetary economics and religion with today’s fraudulent monetary system. To understand the matter, one must understand the system we are in. Have you ever wonder who controls the world's financial system?

Prophet Muhammad SAW informed the world that Allah Most High, had responded to the Jewish rejection of the true Messiah by creating a false Messiah. He disclosed that Allah Most High would release that evil being into the world with a mission to impersonate the true Messiah.

There is information (read Tamim Dari Hadith from Sahih Muslim) in the life of the blessed Prophet which indicates that the false Messiah was released into the world after the Prophet’s Hijrah to Madina had taken place, and after the Jews of Madina had rejected him as a true Prophet.



Consequently, Dajjal the false Messiah would have to attempt to establish a world government through which he would rule over the world from Jerusalem. The Prophet also disclosed that the supreme strategy through which the false Messiah would seek to impose over mankind to be the weapon of Riba.

With Riba he would enslave with poverty those who resist him, and empower with wealth those who accept and support him. The rich elite of mankind so created would then be used as clients and surrogates to exploit and enslave the poor masses and rule over them on behalf of the false Messiah.

Riba in Current Monetary System

To understand more about Riba and what is written in the Qur'an & hadith, Click Here. Now, let's hear some words from Khalid Yassin regarding Riba.



We now describe one of the processes of Riba through which Dajjal empowers with wealth those who support him, and enslave with poverty those who oppose him. What he did was to establish an international monetary system that corrupted money in such a way that it could be manipulated and made to function as a vehicle of legalized theft, gigantic fraud, and economic oppression. One of the very visible forms of such is the exploitation of labor through slave wages.

The "One Eyed" US Dollar

Around the world of the so-called free market economy today, governments have found it necessary to impose minimum wage legislation in order to prevent bloody rebellion by those imprisoned in slave wages.

The reader can easily recognize the very heart of the process of legalized theft in the international monetary system that the Judeo-Christian (Ya'juj Ma'juj alliance?, Read Sea of Galilee) alliance has created by focusing attention on an event that occurred in April 1933. The US Government enacted legislation at that time prohibiting American residents from keeping gold coins, bullion or gold certificates in their possession. Gold coins were demonetized, and were no longer permitted as legal tender and could not be used as money. If anyone was caught with such gold after a 35 certain date, he could be fined $10,000 and/or be imprisoned for six months. In exchange for the gold coins and bullion, the Federal Reserve Bank, which is a private bank, offered paper currency (i.e., US dollars) with an assigned numerical value of $20 for every one ounce of gold.


The "One Eyed" US Dollar (See on top of the pyramid - click to enlarge)

Most Americans rushed to exchange their gold for paper currency, but those who were aware of the rip off that was about to take place bought gold with their paper currency and then shipped the gold away to Swiss banks. It is significant that the British government also demonetized gold coins in the same year as the US. They did so through the simple expedient of suspending the redeem ability of the sterling paper pound into gold.

After all the gold in USA had been exchanged for paper currency, the US Government then proceeded in January 1934 to arbitrarily devalue the US paper dollar by 41% and to then rescind the law of prohibition concerning gold that was previously enacted. The American people rushed back to exchange their paper currency for gold at the new exchange value of $35 per ounce of gold. In the process, they were robbed of 41% of their wealth. The reader can now easily recognize the legalized theft that takes place when paper currency is devalued.

The Federal Reserve Bank

The Federal Reserve Bank (which, incidentally, is a privately owned bank) appeared in the above incident to have initiated a ‘trial run’ to test domestically the new monetary system. That transfer would take place through the simple device of creating money out of worthless paper and then forcing paper currency upon all of mankind. Those who control the monetary system would then target certain currencies and force them to be continuously devalued. As such paper currencies lost value the unsuspecting masses would suffer massive loss of wealth, however, their ‘losses would result in ‘gain’ for others.

Less than two years earlier, in September 1931, the British pound was devalued by 30% and this gradually increased to 40% by 1934. France then followed with a devaluation of the French Franc by 30%, the Italian Lira was devalued by 41%, and the Swiss Franc by 30%. The same thing subsequently happened in most European countries. Only Greece went beyond the rest of Europe to devalue its currency by a whopping 59%.

What appeared to be "beggar thy neighbor" policies of 1930s - using currency devaluations to increase the competitiveness of a country's export products in order to reduce balance of payments deficits - resulted in plummeting national incomes, shrinking demand, mass unemployment, and an overall decline in world trade that came to be known as the Great Depression. However, it prepared the way for the imposition of an international monetary system that ostensibly sought to bring order and prevent chaos in the world of money and trade. In other words, the Great Depression was artificially contrived in order to justify the imposition of an international monetary system that would bring order to a chaotic world of money.

The Judeo-Christian alliance went on to establish a ‘paper currency’ international monetary system at Bretton Woods. They used the link between the US dollar and gold in the Bretton Woods Agreement as a fig leaf to hide the fact that paper could now be printed and used as money without any requirement that it be redeemable in the market in real money, i.e., money with intrinsic value.

The Bretton Woods Agreement paved the way for the International Monetary Fund (IMF) to be established in 1944 with the explicit function of maintaining an international monetary system of precisely such non redeemable paper currencies. By 1971 even the fig leaf disappeared when USA reneged on its treaty obligation under international law to redeem US dollars for gold.

International Monetary Fund (IMF)

The system is designed to target in particular those who resist the mysterious Judeo-Christian alliance that now rules the world. The Articles of Agreement of the IMF prohibited the use of gold as money. It did so by prohibiting any link between gold and paper currencies other than the US dollar. Art.4 Section 2(b) of the Articles of Agreement stated:

“exchange arrangements may include (i) the maintenance by a member of a value for its currency in terms of the special drawing right or another denominator, other than gold, selected by the member, or (ii) cooperative arrangements by which members maintain 40 the value of their currencies in relation to the value of the currency or currencies of other members, or (iii) other exchange arrangements of a member's choice.”

The IMF was used to establish a new international monetary system with new and strange monetary terminology. There was a world of a difference between ‘local (paper) currency’, which was accepted as a medium of exchange in the country in which it was issued, and ‘foreign exchange’ paper currency that was the medium of exchange for trade outside of that country. Therefore, if traders in Malaysia wanted to sell goods to traders in neighboring Indonesia, the Indonesians had to find foreign exchange to pay for their purchases with only limited to either European paper currencies or to the US dollar.

Thus, the trap was set for demand for such European currencies as the US dollar that then became known as ‘hard’ currency. So long as the Judeo-Christian alliance could maintain demand for their paper currencies all that they had to do was to keep on printing such money and, in the process, keep on creating wealth out of nothing. The evil plan behind the whole system was also to get Western currencies, to constantly increase in value in relation to other currencies. That was achieved through the simple device of either coaxing or forcing devaluation of targeted currencies. As such currencies were devalued; it resulted in a massive transfer of wealth from the masses to the elite. It also forced labour into working for slave wages, and it imprisoned those who took ‘hard’ currency loans from an ever-willing IMF and from European commercial banks and now found themselves in ever-increasing difficulty to repay those loans with interest.

In fact, the entire monetary system with its IMF centerpiece was specifically designed to achieve such results. Targeted countries were trapped with huge loans, were continuously drained of their wealth, and were impoverished as they struggled to repay loans with money that constantly lost value. Finally, the new international monetary system of paper money facilitated the banking system, through fractional reserve banking, to lend on interest money it did not possess. That, also, was legalized fraud.

The Great Deception - "Islamic Banking"

Dr. Mahathir's Writing on Present Financial Crisis

Follows is installments of a series on the trends that led to the present financial crisis written by Malaysia's former Prime Minister, Dr Mahathir Mohamad. He not only understood the exploitative nature of the monetary system created by modern western civilization, but also, and quite correctly so, did what scarcely any of the Muftis of Islam have so far done, or dare to do. He called for the return to the Gold Dinar as money, in place of the money-system built around the utterly fraudulent US dollar, so that Muslims could extricate themselves from financial and economic oppression and exploitation.

Trail Riding: Frim with Fimi

It's not a coincident. However, the name Fimi is not related to Frim whatsoever. Some used to call him "King of Frim". Whoever he may be is not important. He came on time as always & like to starts riding on the dot. Unfortunately, the others did not.


Lembab betul la diorang ni!

By the way, last Saturday was the day for some of us first climb to the top of Steroid Hill. Congratulations goes to Haitsan & Haidil (they're not brothers). Where did the other two go? Hoi, lembab la korang! Lama kitorang tunggu kat bawah ni! haha...

By succesfully adding Steroid Hill to the menu that day, it should be great fun nonetheless. The look in their face tells everything. For Hassan (Sarjan?) & Nazib, this were their first trip to Frim (1st time offroad for Hassan with his new Khs Alite1000).



We started the ride that day from Tokong (main entrance), skip Bukit Bujang & headed straight to Bukit Hari - Steroid Hill.



Actually, my target that day is to start the ride by climbing to Bukit Bujang & enjoy the Dream's singletrack. Since it's not recommended for beginner, so we wrapped the session by riding through 501 singletrack.



I'm not a smoker (not anymore), but I have to say thanks to them that day. Because of one cigarette resulted in us having free Nasi Lemak Kukus. More story here. Thanks Mr. Mustafa!

On the way out to Tokong, "The Smokers" were busy looking for desperate smoker in need for a cigarette, in hope of having another FREE nasi lemak session. Read Part 2 here.
