book review

During the last summer holidays i read loads of really nice books, but i cant seem to remember all the titles...(i have a very short memory for a medical student)...So, below is just about some books that i have read in this month.. By the way, it is in indonesian, and more to religious things...i dont read these types of books as often as i do want to, but i think it is good to read it once in a while to keep us in check as a reminder of how lalai we can get. for my friends in jatinangor, if you want to read these books, you can borrow mine, if not, you can get them in tisera in jatos..hehe

BOOK TITLE - BEGINIKAH RASANYA 7 MALAM PERTAMA DI ALAM KUBUR
AUTHOR - JAMAL MAMUR ASMANI

tHIS book is a simple book, not too complicated with things we do not understand. but any tom,dick and harry can read this book and feel fear towards Gods thereafter days...

Amongst the contents of this book, is about how we would feel in the first few hours in the grave, alone...then what would happen to us...real creepy and scary,but a must read....

theres this one paragraph that i like from this book ....

tanyakan kepada orang yang buta yang berjalan di tengah2 keramaian tapi tidak dilanggar, siapa yang mengendalikan langkahnya

tanyakan kepada janin yang hidup sendiri di dalam perut, siapa yang telah memeliharanya

katakanlah kepada seseorang bayi yang menangis saat kelahirannya, siapa yang membuatnya menangis

tanyakan kepada susu yang bersih, padahal ia berasal dari darah dan kotoran, siapa yang menjadikannya bersih

dan jika kamu melihat seekor ular sedang menyemburkan bisanya, tanyakan juga, wahai sang ular, mengapa kau bisa hidup, padahal mulutmu penuh dengan bisa..........



TITLE - YOU ARE DEAD
AUTHOR - SHALIH ASY-SYADI

THIS book tells that everything that lives---MUST die..IT IS MORE in depth than the other book, it has research on some west writers who delve on the afterlife...

it also mentions on the seven heavens and the hell that we all do not want to go too...its very informative, and as i said before, the books that i chose, are simple to read but it does give a very good understanding

some excerpts from this book

i find this part of the book very interesting---it says, the people who fall into hell will feel the torments of fire first on their skin...everytime their skin peels off and burns, Allah will replace it with another new layer, and this layer will then peel off and burn..the miracle of this, is that in science, we know that the skin is the most sensitive part of our body..and this most sensitive part is burnt first...MasyaAllah...the greatness of God

--melebur segala dosa baik kecil,
mahupun besar adalah takwa,
berbuatlah seperti orang yang berjalan di atas tanah berduri
yang selalu waspada dengan apa yang dia lihat,
jangan remehkan dosa kecil sekalipun,
kerana gunung terdiri dari kerikil......

I might be biased as hell, but I always find these kinds of books condenscending. Like one of those I'm-saved-are-you Christians. I always feel that they're playing some psychological game with you, like manipulating your feeling of inadequacy in religious matters.

Plus, after discovering Ahmed Hulusi, I more-or-less reject these kinds of books totally from my life. Hulusi is a real writer on religious matter. Hulusi gives his books for free and put a non-copyright text inside - meaning you could and should make copies of the books to be distributed. On the other hand, Hulusi's books are so deep and philosophical and there's some aspects of his writings that I don't agree. Oh well. To each his own, I say.

hmm....kadang-kadang ada jugak buku yang merepek. tapi if penulisnya dikenali, telah banyak menulis buku, ber'cerita' berdasarkan sumber yang benar, maka itulah yang kita jadikan rujukan.

anyway, tak bolehla serkap jarang semua buku-buku agama tak bagus - atau bagus. sebab kadang-kadang memang ada yang tak bagus, dan ada juga yang sangat bagus.

nak menuntut ilmu kena melalui sumber ilmu. dan buku adalah salah satunya. so kena banyak membaca...dan kena pandai menilai. semoga mendapat manfaat dari setiap perkara yang kita lakukan.=)

boleh aja, nadya, but I don't really recommend getting into him right now la. He requires an open mind like you never thought possible. First time I read his book, I actually threw it against the wall. Even now, it's rather too deep for me.

Drrazi, true, but how many of these books can you find that doesn't make you feel dirty afterwards? I think out of the puluhan that I've read, maybe it's one or two. Generally, they're not for me.
