Khalifah Institute Dinner And Talk

I was enjoying my dinner.

On March 26, 2011 or 21 Rabiulthani 1432, I went to Khalifah Institute‘s ‘Dinner & Talk’.

The event was held at the Dewan Perdana Felda, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

The talk was entitled, ‘Do Your Best’, by Bro Idris Tawfiq.

This is the second time I met Bro Idris Tawfiq.

I first met him in 2009.

I also met Uncle Ustaz ‘Uthman El-Muhammady, who was one of the guests of honour.

Over there I helped my father to set up the camera and distribute the flyers of a new book, ‘A Map of  Trengganu’ (AMoT).

I was busy helping my father.

I also help the volunteers to pack things up after the program.

A Map of Terengganu is written by Awang Goneng or Uncle Wan Ahmad Hulaimi.

It is a sequel to the best seller, ‘Growing Up in Trengganu’ (GUiT).

I reached home at around 12:48 AM 🙂

I was very tired but I could not sleep until almost 2 AM 😉

Brother Muhammad’s Birthday

Yesterday was Professor Muhammad Al-Mahdi’s birthday.

He was born on April 5, 1943

He died on 29 April 2006

He was a very clever and good man.

He was the founder of Khalifah Institute.

He wrote books on how to be a a good person.

Being a khalifah means to be a good person.

To be a good khalifah we must:

  1. Make ourselves good.

  2. Help others to be good.

  3. Make the world clean and beautiful.

To make ourselves good we must be a good person, work very hard, study hard, do not play too much, do not spend our time on empty fun, do not hurt other people and be good to everybody around us.

We must help other people to be good people and not fighting with each other.

We must stop the wars, stop littering, stop the global warming and stop making other human disasters.

Brother Muhammad taught me not to watch stories with empty fun, bad value and fighting like SpongeBob, Doraemon, Ultraman, Spiderman, Mr. Bean and others.

We should watch stories like Barney and Friends, Dora The Explorer, Go Diego Go, Sesame Street and others that teach us good value and other good stuffs.

I love Brother Muhammad very much.

I am sad because he died.
