How to get Netherlands Schengen Visa in Surabaya

Well, that was pretty easy to make that Schengen Visa, so here it's my experience:

I was interested to Neurology and Neurlogy Summer School in Groningen, I am so worry when I am going to make schengen visa, I opened several websites and blogs and they said it's difficult to make schengen visa, so hard, they'll make you mad, bla bla bla. THAT'S NOT TRUE!!!

Because I live in Surabaya, I applied that schengen visa in General Consulate of The Netherlands in Jl. Imam Bonjol No. 36, Surabaya - 60264 Telp. 031-5662409.

Ideal Doctor


I promised to my self that I have to write a post about ideal doctor before I attend my rotational internship program.
Being a doctor is one of my goals, sure I still have another goals, but in here I would't talk about it.
In this post I mixed the opinion from Sandurezu 'd Syandrez and the researches -- who included Neeli Bendapudi, PhD, of Ohio State University's Fisher College of Business
Here they are:

  • Confident : The doctor's confidence gives me confidence 
  • Empathetic: The doctor tries to understand what i am feeeling and experiencing, physically and emotionally, and communicates that understand to me
  • Humane : The doctor is caring, compassionate, and kind
  • Personal : The doctor is interested in me more than just a patient, interacts with me, and remembers me as an individual
  • Forthright : Te doctor tells me what I need to know in plain language and in a forthright manner
  • Respectful : The doctor takes my input seriously and works with me
  • Thorough : The doctor is conscientious and persistent
  • Health care provider : The doctor should not take advantage of the profession he had for their personal interests. Doctors in truth is caring, dedicated, and not merely for the money. If the 'ultimate goal' to be a doctor is to make money, better quit medical school
  • Problem solver : not only my health problems but also any kind of my problems
  • Good communicator : Not only to the patient, but for anyone who is associated with him/her, including establishing good relationship with family and friends, teachers, students, colleagues, the public, and anyone. A doctor should not be silent, but not be too much to say or fussy
  • Have a faith : The doctor must believe and are sure that he is not a cure-person, but it is Allah Who heals. He realized that he was only a man destined by Allah to be a healing medium for people who are sick
  • Devoted to Allah : The doctor is the one who always keeps himself in acts that please Allah. He/she was doing all the commandments of God, and he was away from all the prohibitions of Allah. Included in the profession as a doctor, he would not do the things that make God's wrath and always pursue her love of God.
  • Clean : The doctor should be clean inside and outside, I don't want to be examined by doctor who is dirty and sloven
  • Educated : smart!


Is It Halal?


Just yesterday ago I made a plan to make a small celebration of my graduation with my Malaysian buddies in one of Japanese Restaurant (Hanamasa) in the mall, right after I announced my will to eat in that place through BBM message suddenly I remember that the restaurant that I am going to is didn't officially HALAL certified yet by MUI (Majelis Ulama Indonesia - Indonesian Ulama Coucil). My mind was really confused, I clearly remember that I saw "HALAL" sign in one of the Islamic Magazine but it was long time ago, so I am sure to going to that place, several hours later I am really anxious (I was so labile) so I check the internet and find any article about "halal" in that restaurant, almost 90% people stated that restaurant is not halal or didn't halal certified yet, I figured out what made it non halal, they said that the sauce is not halal because contained low-level of alcohol.
But I was in denial phase, I make sure that they're wrong (the people who declared it's not halal) so I convince myself that I am going to the restaurant and I will eat the vegetables and the soup  only (without the sauce) because my nafs (in my mind) I am thinking about how delicious and fresh the Yakiniku and Shabu-Shabu. But once again Allah saved me (Alhamdulillah) my lusts is defeated by my fear, Alhamdulillah I still have eeman *blushing*

This is what I was looking for

What's halal? According Khala Wikipedia, Halal (Arabic: حلال ḥalāl, "permissible") is a term designating any object or an action which is permissible to use or engage in, according to Islamic law. The term is used to designate food seen as permissible according to Islamic law. The opposite of this word is haraam.
Halal foods are foods that Muslims are allowed to eat under Islamic dietary guidelines. The criteria specify both what foods are allowed, and how the food must be prepared. The foods addressed are mostly types of meat/animal tissue. that term not only covers food and drink, but also to all matters of daily life. When it comes to halal food, most people think of meat foods only. However, Muslims must ensure that all foods, particularly processed foods, pharmaceuticals, and non-food items like cosmetics, are also halal. Frequently, these products contain animal by-products or other ingredients that are not permissible for Muslims to eat or use on their bodies.
O you People! Eat of what is on earth, Halal and pure, and do not follow the footsteps of the Satan; Indeed for he is to you an open enemy (2:168)
O you who believe! Eat of the good things that We have provided for you and be grateful to Allah, if it is Him that you worship (2:172)
About the sauce that provided in that restaurant which is contained alcohol made me remember one hadith:
عن ‏ ‏عبد الله بن عمرو ‏ ‏قال ‏ ‏قال رسول الله ‏ ‏صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏ ‏من شرب الخمر وسكر لم تقبل له صلاة أربعين صباحا وإن مات دخل النار فإن تاب تاب الله عليه وإن عاد فشرب فسكر لم تقبل له صلاة أربعين صباحا فإن مات دخل النار فإن تاب تاب الله عليه وإن عاد فشرب فسكر لم تقبل له صلاة أربعين صباحا فإن مات دخل النار فإن تاب تاب الله عليه وإن عاد كان حقا على الله أن يسقيه من ردغة الخبال يوم القيامة قالوا يا رسول الله وما ردغة الخبال قال عصارة أهل النار 

"Abdullah ibn Amr said that the Prophet SAW said, People who drink khamr/alcohol and get drunk, his prayer is not accepted for 40 days. When he died in the hell. If he repent, God will forgive him. But if the back drinking khamr/alcohol and drunk, his prayer is not accepted for 40 days. When he die he will go to the hell. When he returned to drink again, then the right of Allah to give him a drink of Radghatul Khabal on the Day of Resurrection. The Companions asked, Ya Rasulallah, what's Radaghatul khabal? He replied; the squeezed people from the hell."
I could't imagine if my prayer is not accepted for 40 days and I do believe that my business would not be smooth if I eat that sauce. Honestly I didn't remember any ayah from Al Qur'an except the hadith above (stated by Abdullah ibn Amr) 
Pathetic -_-
And also, Forbidden to you are Maytah (carrion or dead animal, animal not slaughtered with Tasmiyah .i.e. mentioning the name of Allah swt), flowing blood, the flesh of swine, and that slaughter on which was invoked name other than Allah, as well as the (animal) killed by strangulation or beaten to death with violent blow or falling (from a height) to its death or gored to death (through fighting) or by falling to a predator (and about to be consumed) -- unless you are able to slaughter in the name of Allah (swt) and carry out the sacrifice before it dies)…. (5:3)


Note: In the above ayah, the animal / bird not slaughtered with Tasmiyah are considered dead animal (Maytah) and are unlawful (haram) to eat, and it is mentioned before the mentioning the flesh of swine to be unlawful (haram); they are at the same level of haram.


Eat of that over which the name of Allah (swt) has been pronounced (while slaughtering that animal/bird), if you are believers in His revelations (6:118)
And why should you not eat of that (meat) on which Allah's Name has been pronounced (at the time of slaughter), while He has explained to you in detail what is forbidden to you, except under extreme necessity? (6:119)
Eat not (O believers) of that meat on which Allah’s Name has not been pronounced (at the time of slaughtering) for sure it is disobedience of Allah (a sinful conduct). And certainly, the Shayaatin (devils) do inspire their friends (from mankind) to dispute with you, and if you obey them [making al-Maytatah legal to eat (Maytatah - a dead animal or animal / bird slaughtered without taking the name of Allah during slaughter)], then you would indeed be a polytheists (doing shirk, ascribing partners to Allah) (6:121)
And such animals upon which they mention not the name of Allah only to fabricate a lie against him (6:138)
So eat of the lawful (Halal) and good food (Tayyib) which Allah has provided for you (16:114)
For every nation we have appointed [sacred] rites of sacrifice so that they may take the name of Allah (swt) upon the animals [at the time of slaughter] that He gave them as sustenance (22:34)
Take the name of Allah (swt) upon them [at the time of slaughter] as they line up (for sacrifice) (22:36)

From the hadiths that I've mentioned above, we learn that both the prophets and the believers have been commanded to eat from the tayyibat, or the pure things. Purity is achieved when one earns his sustenance in a halal manner, and then uses it to buy halal food. So, if a person buys pure food from stolen money, this will not be accepted from him. Likewise, if one earns money from permissible means, then uses it to buy impermissible items, such as intoxicants, this too will not be accepted from him. Only when both of these conditions have been met - the way one earns money and the way one spends it - will Allah's acceptance be gained.


“Halal (the Lawful & Permissible) is clear and Haram (the Unlawful & Impermissible) is clear. Between halal and haram lays some doubtful things. Many people do not know whether it is permissible or not. Whoever leaves out these doubtful things in order to protect his religion and honor, then he is safe. Whoever indulges in these doubtful things/matters it is very possible that he will fall into haram, similar to a person who grazes his animals near the royal pasture it is very possible that one day he will graze in the royal pasture. Behold! Every king has a royal pasture and the royal pasture of Allah is those things which have been made impermissible.” (Tirmidhi 1205)

Do you know shubhat? Yeah, you're right between halal and haram is shubhat, so if you leaving these doubtful things you already protecting this deen and the honor of this deen and ummah (insha Allah), in my logic; let's say that the halal food is white cat water color and the haram food is black cat water color, and shubhat is the gray color, the mixed color of white and black cat water color, you'll notice there's still a black color inside that food so it's haram right, right? So what are you thinking about? Just leave it and find another food.
The Prophet (salallahu alaihi wa sallam) said, “Avoid whatever you have doubts about in favor of what is not (doubtful).” (Tirmidhi)
Sayyiduna Ka`b Ibn Ujrah (radhiallahu anhu) relates that the Prophet (salallahu alaihi wasallam) said, “A body nourished with haram will not enter Jannah”. (Tirmidhi 614)

So, watch what you eat and drink!!

Trip to Saudi Arabia and Omrah


Fascinating Journey…
Trip to Saudi Arabia and Omrah

Thanks to mbak Raka!!

24 Februari 2010
Malam hari sebelum keberangkatan, saya ada liqo’, sekalian untuk minta ijin kepada temen2 liqo’ (didin cs dan maman). Sepulang dari liqo’ (sekitar jam 8an) saya dan maman melanjutkan pergi ke kampus B untuk melihat sebentar Airlangga Festival (sekalian juga nungguin hujannya reda). Setelah puas liat2 AirFest saya langsung pulang… juju raja deh, mataku udah nguantuk berat, padahal mau nyetir.
Sampe di daerah perak, saya nyetir sambil ngelamun, daaan…
BRAAAAAAK!!..
Alhasil nabrak “tanda ada perbaikan jalan” (yang warnanya oranye itu lho!). Alhamdulillah ga ada yg terluka dan jatuh, sepeda motor selamat dan akupun selamat.. tapi jadi pikirannih, akankah ini pertanda buruk untuk besok?! Jangan sampe deh!
Sampai rumah dengan selamat, langsung aja ngerjain amanah neuron As Salam. (sebelumnya ada telepon dari temen abi yg minta doa, yuuuukk, saya layani…)
Tidoooooorrr…zzzzz

Emmm… ngomong2 tentang pesawatnya (Garuda), g muasin banget! I prefer Air Asia than Garuda, kenapa?
1. Masih nemuin sampah2 kecil2 di kabin pesawat
2. Seragam steward dan stewardess g kompak (ada yg biru, ada yg biru muda)
3. Saya bosan (egois sekali yak?)
Ada juga sih enaknya, dapet kue banyak (g habis dimakan sendiri), danpermen buat kunyah2..
13 PM @Soekarno Hatta Airport
Istirahat makan siang di hotel transit (lupa nama lengkapnya), nambah 2 piring trus sholat dalam keadaan kekenyangan (bias bayangin g?), after that… SULAIMAN HEJAZI CALLED ME by phone!! He also talked with my dad and used Arabic language, OMG, I didn’t know what are they talking about, I asked my dad what’s the meaning? He said “call Sulaiman if u need help, sms him!” Aiiiiiyyyyyyyyooooo, thanks dude!! Shookran! Ya Allah Ya Allah
Entah kenapa tiba2 teringat modul D… (Aaaaaahh bodo amat, tawakkal aja deh!), urusan Allah lebih penting daripada PBL!!

Wah, kekesalan karna dapet pesawat terbitan lama itu hilang seketika ketika abi beritau saya bahwa kita akan landing di Dammam terlebih dahulu, kerana Dammam adalah tempat sahabat saya, WHOOAAAA… How happy I am, I’ll see Dammam with my own eyes..

(Ya Sulaiman! I think I love Dammam, your place is beautiful!, Masha Allah!)..\Lagi iseng2nya bengong tiba2 passenger dibelakang saya mulai buka suara, lho kok suaranya mirip Prof. Hafid, Sp.BS ya?

Bangun pagi jam 4 subuh WR, buang hajat, whudu’, ganti baju, langsung cabut ke Al Haram Medina (Nabawi), lagi enak2nya I’tikaf tiba2 ada yg pegang saroongku (kaget!), sambil ngoceh2 dalam bahasa arab ga jelas, untung ada ai, di bilang “sarong kamu kainnya bagus sekali, dapat darimana?”

Sudah kembali ke hotel, daripada bengong ga jelas, mending jalan sendirian kelilingin masjid nabawi, Masha Allah cuapeknya.. ternyata luas banget.. padahal diliat dari citra udara saya sudah ngerasa yakin g bakalan capek, nyatanya tidak..
Beberapa puluh meter dari pintu hotel seorang bapak umur 30-40an menyapaku, dan tanya darimana asalku, saya jawab aja dari Indonesia,zzz.. intinya dia mau minta duit 50 riyal (gila! Gede amat!), Deg! Kasihan ni orang, aku kasih aja 15 riyal dulu, tapi dia g mau, maunya 50 riyal, sempet kepikiran sih ni orang bohong nggak ya?. Tapi berhubung kaki dah g kuat berdiri lagi dan badan ingin berbaring di kasur hotel yg empuk, tanpa babibu kasih aja 50 riyal, kalo dia emang bener2 butuh 50 riyal yasudah saya ikhlaskan untuk shodaqoh, kalo dia bohong yasudah biar itu urusannya sama Allah..

Ruling On Cosmetic Surgery


Question
Please explain to what extent cosmetic surgery is allowed in Islam.
Answered by
the Fatwa Department Research Committee – chaired by Sheikh `Abd al-Wahhâb al-Turayrî
Cosmetic surgery is permissible to correct deformities or to return a person’s appearance back to normal after an accident. It is lawful for a person to make amendments to appearance when some natural defect exists or some disfiguring accident has occurred.

It is not allowed merely to change a person’s normal appearance or to make that person appear more attractive according to some notion of beauty. In the Qur’ân, Allah says that Satan will lead people astray and that one of the ways he will do this is to get them to alter Allah’s creation.
Allah says: “Allah cursed him and he (Satan) said: ‘I will take from your servant a portion determined. I will mislead them and create within them false desires. I will order them to slit the ears of cattle and to change Allah’s creation.’ Whoever takes Satan as a friend instead of Allah has surely suffered a great loss.” [Sûrah al-Nisâ’: 118-119]

Cleanliness After Sexual Intercourse


Question:
After sex, can we just have some water and wash off ourselves and go for prayers or do we have to have a complete bath?
Assalamu Alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh
Thank you for your question. Islam is a religion that demands purity and cleanliness in all aspects of life.
After sexual intercourse, one is considered in a state of major impurity. Hence ritual prayer (salah) is only valid after one purifies them by taking a ghusl (Islamic bath).
“O you who believe … If you are in a state of major impurity, cleanse yourselves well (by taking a bath), … or you have had sexual contact with women …” (Qur’an 5:6)
There are three mandatory actions of Ghusl:
1. To rinse the mouth
2. To rinse the nose
3. To wash the entire body
It is important to note that:
• All areas of the body are thoroughly washed with water. The inner part of the circumcised area must also be washed provided it can be opened without any difficulty.
• The inner part of the navel is washed.
• The inside of a cavity which has not sealed is washed.
• The braids of a man’s hair are untied, even if water reaches the hair’s roots. A female is exempt from undoing her braids as long as the water reaches her hair’s roots. If a woman’s hair is so compact that it prevents the water from penetrating the roots then it is obligatory to open her braids.
• Water reaches the skin underneath the beard, moustache and eyebrows.
• To ensure that water reaches the external part of the vagina.
Ali (RA) stated, “The one who leaves out the area of a hair’s span of filth from ritual impurity, without washing it, will be dealt with severely in the hellfire” (Sunan Abu Dawud)
Ibn Abbas (RA) said, “When a person with ritual impurity takes a bath and forgets to rinse his mouth and nose, he should redo the cleaning of the mouth and nose.” (al-Daraqutni)
And Allah knows best.
