Sejarah difahami untuk makna HARI ini.....

Assalamualaikum wrt wbt....

Witty caricature accepting that those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it but suggesting that those who do learn must submit to others repeating historyKita perlu memahami sejarah dan menghargai susur galur kerana terkandung didalamnya cerita, watak watak serta susur galur mengapa berlakunya sesuatu peristiwa.

Tanpa sejarah, kita tidak akan dapat bergerak kehadapan dengan betul kerana didalam sejarah terkandung pengajaran dan pelajaran yang penting samada kesilapan yang telah dilakukan mahupun perkara betul atau strategi yang betul yang telah dibuat.

Melalui sejarah kita juga tahu arah tuju pembangunan ataupun perancangan yang telah dibuat sejak sekian lama dan pada hari ini kita hanya perlu menyambung,memperbaiki serta meneruskan legasi yang ada disamping membuat pelarasan yang sesuai agar arah tuju atau 'direction' itu dapat diteruskan dan pencapaian dapat dibuat secara konsisten.

Sejarah juga mengajar erti dan maksud 'konsistensi' lalu kehebatan masa lampau akan dapat diulangi pada hari ini melalui penerusan polisi dan dasar yang bagus dankaedah pelaksanaan sesuatu perkara, dasar dan polisi.

Kita lahir dan wujud serta membina kehidupan pada hari ini kerana ayah dan ibu kita, kerana meraka yang terdahulu dari kita. Mereka mendepani cabaran di zaman mereka dan mereka juga mengolah diri kita untuk bersedia mendepani cabaran pada hari ini. Wujudnya kita ialah kerana generasi terdahulu. Sejarah jualah yang mencatat rakaman rakaman pelbagai peristiwa yang boleh kita pelajari lalu kita manfaatkan pada hari ini buat panduan generasi hari ini bagi mendepani cabaran masakini. Tanpa sejarah akan bobrok lah masa depan dan generasi.

Sejarah juga mengajar erti penghargaan dan penghargaan ini merupakan sistem nilai yang menjadi timbang tara untuk kita meniti masa hadapan. Tanpa nilai ini akan hilanglah appresiasi lalu lahirlah pemahaman kebencian.

Fahamilah sejarah dan manfaatkan segala galanya daripada sejarah. Bagaimana? Melalui rekod dan catatan yang dibuat oleh generasi terdahulu. Contoh terbaik ialah bagaimana Allah mengajar manusia dengan merakamkan peristiwa peristiwa terdahulu melalui wahyu. Kisah kisah bangsa terdahulu. Kisah jatuh bangunnya sesuatu ummah. Inilah sejarah yang perlu kita fahami.

Jadi, mengapa kita memandang remeh akan sejarah sedangkan Allah menunjukkan bahawa manusia hari ini perlu mengetahui dan memahami sejarah melalui pelbagai kisah yang diceritakan dan dipaparkan dalam Al-Quran....agak agaknya mengapa? 

Kalian fikirkan sendiri.....

Life lessons: Most of us fail to see the inner side....

Meaningful story from......

A teacher was teaching her class of students when she relayed a story about a cruise ship capsized at sea.

On the ship, there was a couple that managed to make their way to a lifeboat, but then realized there was only space for one.

Although I can’t confirm whether this story actually happened or not, I certainly think we can all learn something from it.

A cruise ship capsized while at sea. On the ship was a couple who, after having made their way to the lifeboat, realized that there was only space for one person left.

At this moment, the man pushed the woman behind him and jumped onto the lifeboat himself.

The lady stood on the sinking ship and shouted one sentence to her husband.
The teacher stopped and asked: “What do you think she shouted?”

Most of the students excitedly answered: “I hate you! I was blind!”

Now, the teacher noticed a boy who was silent throughout, she got him to answer and he replied: “Teacher, I believe she would have shouted – Take care of our child!”

The teacher was surprised, asking: “Have you heard this story before?”

The boy shook his head: “Nope, but that was what my mom told my dad before she died to disease.”

The teacher lamented: “The answer is right.”

The cruise sunk, the man went home and brought up their daughter single-handedly.

Many years later after the death of the man, their daughter found his diary while tidying his belongings.

It turns out that when parents went onto the cruise ship, the mother was already diagnosed with terminal illness. At the critical moment, the father rushed to the only chance of survival.

He wrote in his diary: “How I wished to the bottom of the ocean with you, but for the sake of our daughter, I can only let you lie forever below the sea alone.”

The story is finished. The class was completely silent.

The teacher knows that the student has understood the moral of the story, that of the good and the evil in the world, there are many complications behind them which are hard to understand.

Which is why we should never only focus on the surface and judge others without understanding them first.

Those who like to pay the bill, do so not because they are loaded but because they value friendship above money.

Those who take the initiative at work, do so not because they are stupid but because they understand the concept of responsibility.

Those who apologize first after a fight, do so not because they are wrong but because they value the people around them.

Those who often text you, do so not because they have nothing better to do but because you are in their heart.

One day, all of us will get separated from each other. We will miss our conversations of everything and nothing and the dreams we had. Days, months and years will pass until this contact becomes rare.

One day, our children will see our pictures and ask: “Who are these people?”
And we will smile with invisible tears because a heart is touched with a strong word and you will say: “It was them that I had the best days of my life with.”
