Menderma darah

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Assalamualaikum semua :D

InsyaAllah, saya harini nak berkongsi sedikit berkenaan bab menderma darah.
Rasanya, ramai yang sedia maklum mengenai hukum menderma darah, iaitu sunat. Maka post ini akan memberi sedikit sebanyak input, bagaimana pandangan ulama' dan beberapa counter argument (hujah balas) ke atas isu ini, InsyaAllah :)

1) Syeikh Dr. Yusuf Al-Qardhawi
Beliau melihat menderma darah ini merupakan satu cara bersedekah yg cukup utama. Ini disebabkan disamping memberi, keperluan darah dikala kritikal membantu pesakit dan dapat menyelamatkan nyawa.

Dan barangsiapa yang memelihara kehidupan seorang manusia, maka seolah-olah dia telah memelihara kehidupan manusia semuanya. (QS. AL-Maidah: 32)

Siapa yang membebaskan seorang muslim dari bebannya di dunia, maka Allah akan membebaskannya dari bebannya di hari kiamat. (HR Bukhari dan Muslim)

2) Syeikh Husamuddin bin Musa 'Ufanah

Ulama' yg berasal dari Palestin ini melihat menderma darah itu sangat penting hingga sampai ke tahap fardu kifayah. Namun, beliau menolak konsep menjual beli darah (dan juga organ)

3) Syaikh Zaid Bin Muhammad Al-Madkholi

Beliau berpandangan selagi mana ia tidak menimbulkan kemudharatan pada diri si penderma, ia bukan perkara yang dilarang, malah mendapat pahala.

“Barangsiapa yang beramal dengan sebiji debu kebaikan maka dia akan melihatnya, dan barangsiapa yang beramal dengan sebiji debu kejelekan maka dia akan melihatnya” (QS. Az Zalzalah: 7-8)

Namun, beliau menentang sebarang penjualan darah dan meletakkan hukum haram dalam penggunaan duit yg diperoleh dala urusan jual beli darah.

Derma darah dan mahram

Mengikut perbincangan ulama', sesetengah daripada mereka bersepakat berkenaan konsep mahram itu jatuh pada 3 perkara sahaja; nasab (keturunan), mushaharah (pernikahan) dan radhaah (penyusuan). Maka pandangan yang mengatakan si penerima darah bertukar menjadi muhrim kepada yang menderma ditolak sama sekali. Ringkasan syarahan mengapa tidak disamakan derma darah dan penyusuan ibu adalah disebabkan darah dianggap sebagai medium pengantara di dalam sistem badan manusia (nutrient, oksigen dll.); berlainan dengan susu ibu yang menjadi darah daging kepada si peminumnya.

Allahu a'lam

Then Let man look at his food.

فلينظر الانسان الى طعامه
Then Let man look at his food.
Quran 80:24


SLICE a carrot and it looks just like an eye, right down to the pattern of the iris. Its a clear clue to the importance this everyday veg has for vision. Carrots get their orange colour from a plant chemical called betacarotene, which reduces the risk of developing cataracts. The chemical also protects against macular degeneration an age-related sight problem that affects one in four over-65s. It is the most common cause of blindness in Britain. But popping a betacarotene pill doesnt have the same effect, say scientists at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore


THE gnarled folds of a walnut mimic the appearance of a human brain – and provide a clue to the benefits. Walnuts are the only nuts which contain significant amounts of omega-3 fatty acids. They may also help head off dementia. AnAmerican study found that walnut extract broke down the protein-based plaques associated with Alzheimers disease. Researchers at Tufts University in Boston found walnuts reversed some signs of brain ageing in rats. Dr James Joseph, who headed the study, said walnuts also appear to enhance signalling within the brain and encourage new messaging links between brain cells.


A TOMATO is red and usually has four chambers, just like our heart. Tomatoes are also a great source of lycopene, a plant chemical that reduces the risk of heart disease and several cancers. The Womens Health Study ” an American research programme which tracks the health of 40,000 women ” found women with the highest blood levels of lycopene had 30 per cent less heart disease than women who had very little lycopene. Lab experiments have also shown that lycopene helps counter the effect of unhealthy LDL cholesterol. One Canadian study, published in the journal Experimental Biology and Medicine, said there was œconvincing vidence that lycopene prevented coronary heart disease.


OUR lungs are made up of branches of ever-smaller airways that finish up with tiny bunches of tissue called alveoli. These structures, which resemble bunches of grapes, allow oxygen to pass from the lungs to the blood stream. One reason that very premature babies struggle to survive is that these alveoli do not begin to form until week 23 or 24 ofpregnancy. A diet high in fresh fruit, such as grapes, has been shown to reduce the risk of lung cancer and emphysema.Grape seeds also contain a chemical called proanthocyanidin, which appears to reduce the severity of asthma triggered by allergy.


A nice ˜holey cheese, like Emmenthal, is not just good for your bones, it even resembles their internal structure. And like most cheeses, it is a rich source of calcium, a vital ingredient for strong bones and reducing the risk of osteoporosislater in life. Together with another mineral called phosphate, it provides the main strength in bones but also helps to ˜power muscles. Getting enough calcium in the diet during childhood is crucial for strong bones. A study at Columbia University in New York showed teens who increased calcium intake from 800mg a day to 1200mg equal to an extra two slices of cheddar – boosted their bone density by six per cent.


Root ginger, commonly sold in supermarkets, often looks just like the stomach. So its interesting that one of its biggest benefits is aiding digestion. The Chinese have been using it for over 2,000 years to calm the stomach and cure nausea, while it is also a popular remedy for motion sickness. But the benefits could go much further.
Tests on mice at theUniversity of Minnesota found injecting the chemical that gives ginger its flavour slowed down the growth rate of bowel tumours. GINGER STOMACH


Cheer yourself up and put a smile on your face by eating a banana. The popular fruit contains a protein called tryptophan. Once it has been digested, tryptophan then gets converted in a chemical neurotransmitter called serotonin. This is one of the most important mood-regulating chemicals in the brain and most anti-depressant drugs work by adjusting levels of serotonin production. Higher levels are associated with better moods.


Slice a mushroom in half and it resembles the shape of the human ear. And guess what? Adding it to your cooking could actually improve your hearing. Thats because mushrooms are one of the few foods in our diet that contain vitamin D. This particular vitamin is important for healthy bones, even the tiny ones in the ear that transmit sound to the brain.


The stir-fry favourite bears an uncanny resemblance to the images we see of ‘swimming’ sperm trying to fertilise an egg. And research from the US suggests they could play an important part in boosting male fertility. A study at theCleveland Clinic in Ohio showed that to make healthy sperm in large quantities, the body needs a good supply of vitamin C, a powerful antioxidant that protects cells against damage by harmful molecules called free radicals. Just half a cup of bean sprouts provides 16 per cent of the recommended daily allowance of vitamin C for a man. It’s not just dad but baby too who could benefit. Bean sprouts are packed with folate, a vitamin that prevents neural tube defects, where the baby is born with a damaged brain or spine.


Close-up, the tiny green tips on a broccoli head look like hundreds of cancer cells. Now scientists know this disease-busting veg can play a crucial role in preventing the disease. Last year, a team of researchers at the US National Cancer Institute found just a weekly serving of broccoli was enough to reduce the risk of prostate cancer by 45 per cent. In Britain, prostate cancer kills one man every hour.

NAMUN INGAT, tugas kita dua
1. Sebagai KHALIFAH (wakil Allah di muka bumi) - kita boleh pilih BIDANG apa kita nak FOKUS TANPA MENOLAK TEPI tanggungjawab KHALIFAH yang LAIN seperti tanggungjawab terhadap AGAMA (menegakkan hukum ALLAH), NEGARA, IBU BAPA, ANAK, SAHABAT, ANAK YATIM dan lain2 lagi yang menjadi tanggungjawab kita.
2. Sebagai HAMBA (Hamba Allah) - kita semua WAJIB menjadi hamba yang SOLEH/AH!! ia bukan satu bidang untuk dipilih-pilih.

Syrian Revolution

Calls for protests in Syria are spreading on social media websites, following popular uprisings in Tunisia and Egypt.
Organisers say protests will be staged in front of the parliament in the capital, Damascus, on Friday and Saturday, and at Syrian embassies across the world.
Several pages have been set up on Facebook, with the most popular one, named "The Syrian Revolution", "liked" by about 13,000 people by Thursday.

However, many of those writing comments on Facebook appeared to be Syrians living abroad calling on their "brothers" at home to protest.
Sources in Syria told Al Jazeera they doubted that the calls for protests would really result in much action on the ground.
"I think the day of anger will turn out to be no more than a day of mild frustration," one journalist told Al Jazeera.
"There's no appetite for regime change in Syria as there has been in Egypt for a while. The president isn't hated as much as [Hosni] Mubarak, or seen as out of touch. Also, the local context is very different ... and the poverty rate is significantly lower than in Egypt."

Demonstrations planned
Organisers said demonstrations would be held in the Syrian cities of Damascus, Homs, Aleppo and Qamishli, and in countries including Canada, US, UK, Sweden and the Netherlands.
"For all the fine Syrians who live outside the Syria ... you can help your brothers in Syria by demonstrating in front of Syrian embassy where you live, the same day and same time," one post on Facebook read.

Fidaa Aldin Issa, a Syrian living in Sweden, said a number of activists, including himself, had found each other on Facebook and were now co-ordinating the protest plans.
"It's an independent youth initiative, without any ethnic or religious group, or political party, behind it," he told Al Jazeera. 
Activists say Syria needs
a 'day of anger' 
"We're working 24/7, we're not sleeping, urging people in Syria not to be afraid. They're very scared of the state and the intelligence service.
"We're trying through Facebook to break this fear, encouraging them to stage peaceful protests, without violence, even without badmouthing the president."
Issa said he has contact with two people on the ground in Syria who are trying to mobilise people.
"People in Syria are mistreated. The police is only protecting the elite. The state doesn't care about the unemployed and it has arrested many activists, just because they want to improve the country with means of democracy. There must be an end to this."

There were also reports that a pro-government demonstration would be held in Damascus to coincide with the other rallies.
Facebook is officially blocked in Syria since November 2007. However, many young Syrians bypass the hurdle by using proxy servers and, in August last year, there were about 30,000 Facebook users registered in the country.
As unrest broke out in Egypt last week, web users in Syria said the government tightened its grip over internet access by increasing the number of blocked sites and chat services.

Syria's emergency law - in place since 1963 - makes demonstrations unlawful unless authorised by the government in advance. When protests occur, security forces move in to disrupt.
Human Rights Watch reported on Thursday that a group of 20 people dressed in civilian clothing had beat and dispersed 15 demonstrators holding a candlelight in Damascus on Wednesday in support of the Egyptian mass protests.
The police, who were present nearby as the incident occurred, failed to intervene, the US-based rights group cited one of the gathering's organisers as saying.
Earlier reports had said that police were beating the demonstrators.

Curbs on freedom
As in Egypt, government critics in Syria complain of corruption and limitations to political freedom and human rights.
"Syria's authorities detained political and human rights activists, restricted freedom of expression, repressed its Kurdish minority, and held people incommunicado for lengthy periods, often torturing them, during 2010", Human Rights Watch, the respected rights monitor, said in a report issued last week.
The official unemployment rate is around 10 per cent, but some analysts say as many as every fourth Syrian is actually without a job.

However, Syria has undergone significant changes since Bashar al-Assad became president after his father Hafez's death in 2000, including slowly opening up the economy.
"Despite all troubles here, I don't think and don't hope that Syria will be the next [country to see an uprising] for too many reasons. My country is still not ready for such an experiment and the president here is not really hated," one young Syrian told Al Jazeera.
In an interview earlier this week,  al-Assad told the Wall Street Journal that the ongoing protests in the region were ushering in a "new era" in the Middle East, and that Arab rulers would need to do more to accommodate their people's rising political and economic aspirations. 
He said he would push through political reforms this year aimed at initiating municipal elections, granting more power to nongovernmental organisations and establishing a new media law.

However, he said stability and economy were higher on his agenda than political reforms.
"Reform in politics is important but it is not as important and urgent as the people waking every day and they want to eat, to have good health, to send their children to good schools. That is what they want," al-Assad said.
"I want to feel safe in my own country. That is my goal."

Domino effect ruled out
Al-Assad also told the Wall Street Journal that a domino effect with unrest spreading from Egypt and Tunisia to Syria was unlikely because his country is different.
"We have more difficult circumstances than most of the Arab countries but in spite of that Syria is stable. Why? Because you have to be very closely linked to the beliefs of the people. This is the core issue. When there is divergence between your policy and the people's beliefs and interests, you will have this vacuum that creates disturbance."

But in a possible reaction to the the recent events in Tunisia, whose long-time president, Zine El Abidine Ben Ali, was driven from power by unrest triggered partly by soaring prices, the Syrian government announced late last month that it had increased the heating oil allowance for public workers by 72 per cent to the equivalent of $33 a month.
Calls for protests in a number of Middle East countries are circulating on Twitter, including Yemen, February 3, Algeria, February 12, Bahrain, February 14 and Libya, February 17.

And that was the news on 4th February. What about now? Would there be no revolution for Syria? Watch this video.

Abdullah ibnu Makhtum dan al Quran

RUJUK Surah abasa dan Annisa ayat 95

Abdullah bin Ummi maktum merupakan seorang sahabat nabi yang buta. Beliau juga merupakan Muazzin kedua Rasulullah selepas Bilal bin rabah.

Ketika di awal  permulaan dakwah, Rasulullah SAW sering mengadakan dialog dengan pemimpin-pemimpin Quraisy, seraya mengharap semoga mereka masuk Islam. 

Pada suatu hari beliau bertatap muka dengan ‘Utbah bin Rabi’ah, Syaibah bin Rabi’ah, ‘Amr bin Hisyam alias Abu Jahal, Umayyah bin Khalaf dan Walid bin Mughirah, ayah Saifullah Khalid bin Walid.

Rasulullah berunding dan bertukar pikiran dengan mereka tentang Islam. Beliau sangat ingin mereka menerima dakwah dan menghentikan penganiayaan terhadap para sahabat beliau. Sementara, beliau berunding dengan sungguh-sungguh, tiba-tiba Abdullah bin Ummi Maktum datang mengganggu minta dibacakan kepadanya ayat-ayat Alquran. 

Kata Abdullah, “Ya Rasulullah, ajarkanlah kepadaku ayat-ayat yang telah diajarkan Allah kepada Anda!”

Rasulullah terlengah memperdulikan permintaan Abdullah. Bahkan, beliau agak acuh terhadap permintaan itu. Baginda lalu membelakangi Abdullah dan melanjutkan pembicaraan dengan para pemimpin Quraisy tersebut. Mudah-mudahan dengan Islamnya mereka, Islam bertambah kuat dan dakwah bertambah lancar. Selesai berbicara dengan mereka, Rasulullah SAW bermaksud pulang. Tetapi, tiba-tiba penglihatan beliau menjadi gelap dan kepala beliau terasa sakit seperti kena pukul.

Kemudian, Allah mewahyukan firman-Nya kepada baginda dalam surah abasa:
 “Dia (Muhammad) bermuka masam dan berpaling, karena seorang buta datang kepadanya. Tahukah kamu, barangkali ia ingin membersihkan dirinya (dari dosa), atau dia (ingin) mendapatkan pengajaran, lalu pengajaran itu memberikan manfaat kepadanya? Adapun orang yang merasa dirinya serba cukup, maka kamu melayaninya. Padahal, tidak ada (celaan) atasmu kalau mereka tidak membersihkan diri (beriman). Adapun orang yang datang kepadamu dengan bergegas (untuk mendapatkan pengajaran), sedangkan ia takut kepada (Allah), maka kamu mengabaikannya. Sekali-kali jangan (begitu)! Sesungguhnya ajaran itu suatu peringatan. Maka siapa yang menghendaki, tentulah ia memperbaikinya. (Ajaran-ajaran itu) terdapat di dalam kitab-kitab yang dimuliakan, yang ditinggikan lagi disucikan, di tangan para utusan yang mulia lagi (senantiasa) berbakti.” (Abasa: 1 — 6).

Sejak hari itu Rasulullah SAW tidak lupa memberikan tempat yang mulia bagi Abdullah apabila dia datang. Beliau menyilakan duduk di tempat duduknya, beliau tanyakan keadaannya, dan beliau penuhi permintaannya. Tidaklah hairan kalau beliau memuliakan Abdullah sedemikian rupa, bukankah teguran dari langit itu sangat keras!
An Nisa 95
Setelah perang Badar, Allah menurunkan ayat-ayat Alquran, mengangkat derajat kaum muslimin yang pergi berperang fi sabilillah. Allah melebihkan derajat mereka yang pergi berperang atas orang-orang yang tidak pergi berperang, dan mencela orang yang tidak pergi karena ingin bersantai-santai. Ayat-ayat tersebut sangat berkesan di hati Abdullah Ummi Maktum

Tetapi, baginya sukar mendapatkan kemuliaan tersebut karena dia buta. Lalu dia berkata kepada Rasulullah, “Ya Rasulullah! Seandainya saya tidak buta, tentu saya pergi perang.” 

Kemudian, dia memohon kepada Allah dengan hati yang penuh tunduk semoga Allah menurunkan ayat-ayat yang menerangkan tentang orang-orang yang cacat (uzur) seperti dia, tetapi hati mereka ingin sekali hendak berperang. Dia senatiasa berdoa dengan segala kerendahan hati. Dia berkata, “Wahai Allah! Turunkanlah wahyu mengenai orang-orang yang uzur seperti aku!” 

Tidak berapa lama, kemudian Allah SWT memperkenankan doanya.
Zaid bin Tsabit, sekretaris Rasulullah SAW yang bertugas menuliskan wahyu, menceritakan, “Aku duduk di samping Rasulullah SAW Tiba-tiba beliau diam, sedangkan paha beliau terletak di atas pahaku. Aku belum pernah merasakan beban yang paling berat melebihi berat paha Rasulullah ketika itu. Sesudah beban berat yang menekan pahaku hilang, beliau bersabda, “Tulis, hai zaid!” Lalu aku menuliskan, 

“Tidak sama orang-orang mukmin yang duduk (tidak turut berperang) dengan pejuang-pejuang yang berjihad fi sabilillah.”
Ibnu Ummi Maktum berdiri seraya berkata, “Ya Rasulullah, bagaimana dengan orang-orang yang tidak sanggup pergi berjihad (berperang) karena cacat?” Selesai pertanyaan Abdullah, Rasulullah SAW terdiam dan paha beliau menekan pahaku, seolah-olah aku menanggung beban berat seperti tadi. Setelah beban berat itu hilang, Rasulullah SAW berkata, “Cuba, baca kembali yang telah engkau tulis!” Aku membaca, “Tidak sama orang-orang mukmin yang duduk (tidak turut berperang)” Lalu kata beliau, “Tulis!” Kecuali bagi orang-orang yang tidak mampu.” An-Nisa’: ayat 95...

sekian sahaja, moga-moga, alquran sentiasa dekat di hati kita
