kami susuri lembaran sirahmu
pahit getir perjuanganmu
membawa cahaya kebenaran
Engkau taburkan perjuanganmu
Untuk umatmu yang tercinta
Biar terpaksa tempuh derita
Cekalnya hatimu menempuh ranjaunya
to those who dont know why we are having a holiday today, its Maulidur Rasul, ie the birthday of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh). he was born on 12 rabiulawal 571, also called Tahun Gajah (Year of the elephant?!) because in that year, Abrahah sent his tentera bergajah (army of elephants) to destroy kaabah. but of course it was to no avail as Allah sent down Flights of Birds (burung ababil).
1. Seest thou not how thy Lord dealt with the Companions of the Elephant?
2. Did He not make their treacherous plan go astray?
3. And He sent against them Flights of Birds,
4. Striking them with stones of baked clay.
5. Then did He make them like an empty field of stalks and straw, (of which the corn) has been eaten up.
Surah al-Fiil (The Elephant).
so today, lets perbanyakkan selawat peeps!
