6 perkara bantu rakan yang sedang mengalami DEPRESI

Saya terpanggil untuk menulis tentang isu ini: Depresi, atau Depression.

Kalian tahu sejenis apakah depresi itu? Ia bukan setakat kesedihan semata. Ia juga bukan sekadar jauh hati, sakit hati.

Yang hadir bila kau duduk depan TV, geram, sakit hati dan sedih menonton dan mengutuk Husna. Yang kemudiannya sakit hati itu hilang bila kau tukar saluran kepada episod Running Man.

Sesungguhnya depresi ialah sejenis penyakit. Ya, penyakit yang perlukan rawatan!

Dan penyakit mental ini sangat meruntun personaliti dan bahagia insan yang terjebak! Semakin lama ia berada di situ, semakin susah untuk menariknya keluar.

Tak perlu saya ulas lanjut akan maksud depresi, kalian boleh cari gali dan baca.

Jika kalian berhadapan dengan rakan/ insan yang mengalami depresi, seharusnya bantu dia, kawan. Apa yang kalian boleh lakukan:

1) Cari tahu tentang depresi.
Lebih banyak membaca, kalian akan lebih faham bagaimana mahu membantu.

2) Dengar.
Dengar apa masalah dan luahan hati dia. Elakkan memberi pendapat terlalu banyak. Masa ini, kalian jadilah pendengar yang baik. Pinjamkan telinga kau, kawan.

3) Hentikan provokasi.
Kalau kalian tahu masalah ini berpunca daripada masalah, contohnya belum ada/ kehilangan anak, keretakan rumahtangga, kalian sebagai kawan yang bahagia, sebaiknya elakkan post/ update status, gambar, video bahagia yang boleh meruntun hatinya.

Kau bayangkan, kawan yang depresi tu skrol FB, nampak pula gambar tu.

Yang ini, ramai tidak sedar. Suka-suka post gambar tidak salah. Cuma kadang-kadang, simpan saja bahagia kalian untuk diri sendiri.

4) Berikan sokongan moral.
Rakan yang dihormati, di saat ini sokongan moral sangat-sangat membantu dia untuk keluar daripada kemelut depresi. Supaya dia tahu, dia masih punya keluarga dan rakan yang menyayangi.

5) Galakkan dia untuk menerima rawatan.
Rawatan pasti meletihkan. Ada baiknya berikan sokongan, ingatkan dia untuk mengambil ubat, temani dia untuk rawatan susulan. Sangat penting untuk tidak membiarkan dia sendiri, kerana dia akan hanyut di dalam dunia sendiri yang akan melemaskan.

6) Doakan. Doakan. Doakan dia.
Teruskan berdoa sebagai cara paling dekat dengan Pencipta.

Perhatikan rakan/ahli keluarga sekeliling, boleh jadi terlepas pandang ada yang sedang berperang dengan depresi. Kita saja tak perasan.

Pembaca yang baik hati, saya mohon doakan kesembuhan, kekuatan mental dan spiritual, serta kemudahan buat rakan kami yang sedang berperang dengan depresi. Semoga sahabat kami ini kembali ceria, bahagia dan menjadi diri sendiri, seperti mana yang kami kenal dulu.

Dan semoga kalian, sahabat dan keluarga yang sedang mengalami depresi akan turut diberikan kesembuhan dan kemudahan menghadapinya.

ON FORGIVENESS.

Today is the first day of Ramadan 1439 Hijrah. Alhamdulillah (praised be to God) who allows us to reach this holy month, that is full of barokah (blessings) and forgiveness.




It is that time again for Muslims to observe fasting for a month, from dawn to dusk. To observe carefully each and every action and deeds while fasting is not an easy thing, yet not impossible. Every one of us is striving, doing our best to be a better human being. Everyday.

Fret not, you are not alone.

I would like to pick a topic on forgiveness: to forgive and to move on.

I am reading a book by Gary Chapman on ‘Love as a way of life’. In his book he stated that among the seven main attitude of authentic love is ‘forgiveness’. On forgiving other human who has made wrongdoings to us, it is rather not an easy task, worst if without anticipation from the other human.

Forgiving is a choice.

You may think you have forgiven, yet at times hurt and anger may surface. The scar remains, unless you manage to let it go. Later it will be nothing but just a mark.

Remember this, (quoted) {Anger should be a visitor, not a resident}. Do not let your anger and negativity eats you from within, because it will leave you with nothing but misery within yourself, within your world.

If you cannot stand the anger or negativity, it is then time to walk away. To free yourself, into a new environment, a positive one that will shape you a better person.

Time, istighfar (asking for forgiveness from God) and dua’ (prayer) will heal them all.




Our Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) is the best example of all being. He was the most forgiving person that existed. His level of patience and love towards others made him the greatest man on earth.

We still have a long way to go and follow his examples.

Let us start with forgiving the smallest mistakes. And strive towards forgiving every mistake we encounter. Purification of the heart needs hard work and faith.

May Allah forgives all our sins and bring us closer to Him.

Ramadan Kareem, everyone!

JUST WHEN YOU THINK IT IS IMPOSSIBLE

Alhamdulillah. (Praise be to Allah).

Malaysians who voted for a new government can finally be at ease and smiled (with happiness/ tears),  because our voices has been heard, our prayers has been granted! The new change in governement that had been ruling for more than 61 years has proven for a demand in change of power for a better nation.

People has spoken!

‘We only want to restore the rule of law,’ as said by Tun Mahathir, the representative from Pakatan Harapan, winning majority in the parliament, and automatically forming the new government.

Indeed, Malaysians are looking forward to a nation that takes care of its people, hear the voices of people and restore the rule of the law.

Personally I am excited as being voter for the first time [ya, I know! I should have voted before :)], and this time our history has been changed! I am not a person who gets involve (or interested, rather) in the political world, yet this time I felt it was time to be one responsible Malaysian and went out and voted. And boy, I am so glad I did my part!

In the book industry, we are looking forward to a greater development and support to build up our industry to excel. History has been changed, and that should be documented well in our nation, our library for our next generation to remember this victorious moment.

This change has also proven that ‘impossible’ is not a word that we should hold onto. Being a Muslim, I do not see impossible in any aspects of life, unless when God himself says it is impossible. There is a sentence in the Quran that reads, “Kun fayakun”, that translates, ‘Be! And it comes to be’ 2:117).

This sentence shows the Greatness and the Power that God has, everything is withing his control. The impossible thoughts in our minds can be possible when He wills it to happen.

وَلْتَكُنْ مِنْكُمْ أُمَّةٌ يَدْعُونَ إِلَى الْخَيْرِ وَيَأْمُرُونَ بِالْمَعْرُوفِ وَيَنْهَوْنَ عَنِ الْمُنْكَرِ ۚ وَأُولَٰئِكَ هُمُ الْمُفْلِحُونَ

• Mufti Taqi Usmani:
There has to be a group of people from among you who call towards the good, and bid the Fair and forbid the Unfair. And it is these who are successful.

3:104

May the change be for a better nation, better leaders and for the best of Malaysia and its people!

This is truly the power of the rakyat (people). Congratulations Malaysia!
