Self Discovery

This trip taught me a lot about myself. About patience against myself, against the one close to me, against others in general. If you know that in general you are not a patient person, you should develop tactics to be one there. And ehem to try continuing practicing the tactics when you come back. Uhuk! Uhuk!

It taught me discipline and perseverance. Of course not the perseverance that I learned on how to breastfeed Haziq. Man that was hard. Perseverance against oneself.

It taught me on how much knowledge I have or lacking.

But one of the prominent things I discovered about myself is that I have a lot of GAS.

I mean A lot.

Like I would be walking from the hotel to the haram (which is near), and I would be releasing a quick cannot control one right at the Marwah.

Or if I have wudhu' when I start to pray the nawafils, it would be gone while waiting for the qamat.

In between maghrib and isyak no need to tell lah kan. *roll eyes*

But this one I can assure you is a quick one and no smell. :P Taklah macam ada orang tu melepas kat bilik server. Cepat angkat tangan ngaku!

lain kali bawak ubat DeGas (simethicone). berkesan tau. me tau sbb me pun bnyk angin.

tp kalau pakai khuf, senang je kan nak amik wudhu' balik

kentut bnyk pun bleh jadi kerja syaitan jugak. especially kalau org yg mudah was was ttg wudhu' dia.

Lollies..

saya pun sama.. byk betul gas... tapi alhamdulillah jumpa tmpt yg dekat dgn water-cooler section yg semua org guna (ladies) untuk ambik wudhu'.
hehe :)

Lollies said...

aliya - Hah! salin salin nama ubat.

Itulah. Alhamdullilah ada belajar bab ni. Even wearing long socks (yang melepasi anggota wudhu') are covered under this khuf. Knowing this ilm that we can take wudhu' over the head cover, socks, mana wajib mana sunnah and boleh pakai air sikit helps. bawak jelah botol air. Pakai zamzam pun boleh buat sikit2.

Semenjak i belajar pasal was-was ni, i selalu make a point to say out loud (to myself) bila i kentut so I know I betul2 kentut and that wudhu' batal. kalau tak i consider i tak waswas. :D

littlemuffin - oh masalah universal lah ni ya. :P

yeah i found the place tapi lagi senang kalau tak yah tinggal spot yg best tu. tee he he

*points at Zan*

Kalau cerita kat mak-mak ni mesti dia kata sebab dalam pantang tak pakai stokin.

Saya rasa gas yang kerap (deadly or not) menandakan sehat. Apatah lagi mengetahui dengan sendirinya telah terkentut adalah sesuatu yg perlu disyukuri. Alhamdulillah.

Which reminds me, adakah perlu mengangkat kaki dengan segala jerih payah ke sinki ketika wudhuk? Ratakan air kat kaki pun boleh kan?

OO said...

oh! tell me! i need to learn more about this..kenapa ya? tiap kali lepas wudhu' time tuuuuuu lah rasa nak buang gas????????????? i memang selalu waswas bab-bab buang gas ni!

Nazrah Leopolis said...

hahaha, i had the same issue during my first umrah. siap kena solat hajat hari2 mintak kurangkan angin! tapi bagus juga kan, selalu perbaharui wudhuk?

i have a good feeling it's bcuz the caterer asyik bagi teh o, lauk pun kalau tak kobis, taugeh. mana tak angin satu badan...


that said, i am so happy that u came away with all sorts of gems to carry with u for a very long time.

Lollies said...

rotidua - hahahahhahaha. wei i pantang oh masa pantang. pakai setoking, bengkung segala.

wokei syarat2 berwudhu di atas khuf atau setokin
1. sebelum pakai khuf/ setokin mesti ada wudhu
2. setokin itu tidak jarang
3. setoking menutup anggota wudhu
4. kalau bermukim syarat lasts for a day and night
5. kalau musafir syarat last for 3 days and 3 nights
6. tak boleh bukak setokin tu at all. kalau bukak then ambik wudhu' seperti biasa. maksudnya kalau tak ada setokin/ khuf tak bolehlah apply kelonggaran ini.
7. syarat batal sama seprti ambik air sembahyang
6. cara sapu (sapu saja ya bukan lalukan air sebanyak2nya) is sapukan sahaja air atas anggota wudhu' kaki.
beza pendapat -
i. guna dua tangan yang basah on both atas dan bawah kaki covering all feet sampai lepas buku lali
ii. sapu bahagian bawah kaki sahaja

ini yang i belajar lah ya. kalau ada beza pendapat kita boleh share.

does this answer your question?

Lollies said...

OO - biasalah banyak gas ni. he he

tapi beware ya about being waswas pasal wudhu' ni. syaitan loves to play this in our head and love to suruh kita waswas pasal wudhu and suruh kita ambik and ambik and ambik lagi. kalau you tak sure, take it that wudhu' still sah. what i do is kalau batal i announce to myself. no announcement insya Allah tak batal. fo not give ruang for the suara waswasah untuk mengacau kita

nazrah - pasal selalu ambik wudhu', muka rasa sungguh freseh.

mosh said...

But this one I can assure you is a quick one and no smell.I object!!! Very smelly and loud ones!





ehehe tak pernah perasan pun, ever.

masdiana said...

Lolls... it truly is a universal problem there! :-) Sr Farida pernah ckp that the satan would tap on our tummy making the gas-release, + she said if it's not smelly most probably it's just the satan. WAllahu'alam... tau2 je la sendiri ek? :-)

BTW, yg psl wiping over khuf / socks tuh, I've only heard that it should only be over the top of the feet, bcoz if not mistaken it was Ali r.a. who said "If this religion is only based on logic (rather than submission + following the wahyu + sunnah) then (logically) the wiping would be at the bottom of feet (bcoz that's where it's dirty)". WAllahu'alam... let's check this out more! :-)

Lollies said...

mosh - :P

diana - ahhh ruginya tak pergi kelas sis faridah. ada tak dia suggest how to lawan the shaytan tu?

this sock thingy i learned it from ustaz hasnol. perhaps there are more khilafs ya.

lm said...

Lollies,

I also learned about the wudhuk on socks/khuf before I went to Makkah just like what you mentioned above.
The only thing that I am not aware of is the perbezaan pendapat over the right way to sapu over the feet.

Thanks Diana for pointing out a great info.

I always sapu my wet hand all over the kaki sampai buku lali.. should check more on this then.

:)

elisataufik said...

I am very confused about this khuf thingy, so masa hajj tu I just carry my spray bottle with me so that boleh amik wudhu' wherever I am (so tak payah tinggal spot yang best itu).
Time tak ramai orang I just go to the ladies' air zam zam place.
Masa ni lah bersyukur pakai tudung munah with abaya, sebab tak payah struggle with serkup and pins and what not.

Ummu Layth said...

hehe about the shaitan, ada hadith (At-Tabarani) kata shaitan would open your bum during sujud so you'd feel like you had farted even though you hadn't and he wants you to spend the whole prayer with was was.

i think wiping the khuf/sock/shoe really means wiping..bukan sampai basah stokin tu coz otherwise it would defeat the purpose aje tak tanggal stokin :p

From Fiqh Sunnah Volume 1
Fiqh 1.46: The place to be wiped on a sock/khuf

Islamic law prescribes that the top of the sock is to be wiped.

Said al-Mughirah, "I saw the Messenger of Allah, upon whom be peace, wipe over the top of his socks." (Related by Ahmad, Abu Dawud and at-Tirmizhi, who called it hassan.) 'Ali observed, "If the religion was based on opinion, the bottom of the sock would take preference in being wiped to the top of the sock." (Related by Abu Dawud and ad-Daraqutni with a hassan or sahih chain.)

What is obligatory in the wiping is what is meant by the lexicographical meaning of the word "wipe." There are no specifications authentically mentioned with respect to the wiping.

rotidua said...

Oh thank you for the information both lolls and aliya!

Kat sini, kemudahan dan masa pun ada, alhamdulillah. I doubt i would practise this anytime soon. But good to know there's such .. bukan nak kata waiver.. kemudahan untuk wudhuk.

Thanks again!

Lollies said...

I seek refuge with you O' Allah from shaytan. May Allah help me.

There you go my friend. When a clear proof which the source is sahih, we should not delay ourself but follow it.

Ustaz Hasnol mentioned about the khilaf (differences in opinion) on where to sapu but I err tak perasan teh source that he mentioned the diference of opinions are.

But since the one that Aiiya just narrat is clear, we should now understand on how to sapu the sock.

Barakallahufik aliya. Please do watch my contents ya. ;)

Rotidua - indeed when I was in msia, things are made easier. Bila kat sini baru rasa appreciate sangat that Allah allows things to be easy for us when we pray. This kemudahan is very apparent when we travel and tempat ambik wudhu' sometimes is exposed to public i.e. nampak aurah.

You can also sapukan air atas kepala. This knowledge is helpful especially when you are in the Haram. Toilet jauh and tempat yang ada pun public.

Elisa - I hope the comments here somehow would be easier for you to understand. If you do need, I can send you the summarised notes. or err can I volunteerkan aliya to do it? Kih kih kih

famyGirl said...

ohhh i learn a new thing about wuduk :) Alhamdulillah.

aliya/lollies, can send the detailed notes on this? thanks much.

pasal gas tu, errr... i have the same problem too! jahat sungguh syaitan ni. Audzhubillah!
