AYUBA SULEIMAN DIALLO, HAMBA GENIUS

SENEGAL (Arrahmah.com) – Ayuba Suleiman Diallo lahir pada tahun 1701 di Senegal Timur, Afrika Barat. Ia dibesarkan dalam sebuah keluarga ulama Muslim yang taat. Itu yang membuatnya menghafal seluruh Al-Quran pada usia muda. Bahkan sejak usia muda, ia dihormati karena kecerdasannya dan daya ingatnya yang luar biasa.
Kehidupannya tidak berjalan mulus. Pada suat hari Ayuba ditangkap dan menjadi korban perdagangan budak Atlantik. Ia ditangkap oleh pedagang budak Mandinka dan menjualnya ke Royal African Company, sebuah perusahaan dagang Inggris. Perusahaan itu kemudian menjualnya kepada seorang kapten laut yang membawanya ke Annapolis, Maryland, Amerika Serikat, tempat ia memulai hidupnya sebagai orang yang diperbudak di koloni-koloni Inggris. Ketika ditangkap, Ayuba dicukur janggutnya. Ia kemudian dijual ke perkebunan tembakau milik sebuah keluarga.
Meskipun Ayuba mengalami kesulitan yang luar biasa, ia masih tetap melaksanakan sholat dan ibadah lainnya. Keluarga majikannya mempermalukannya dengan mengejek dan melemparkannya saat dia sholat. Hal tersebut membuatnya lari dari keluarga tersebut, namun, ia segera ditangkap dan dibawa ke penjara.
Ketika dia di penjara dia bertemu dengan seorang pengacara Inggris bernama Thomas Bluett. Bluett terkesan dengan kesalehan, keaksaraan, kecerdasan, dan keimanan Ayuba. Bluett menulis tentang Ayuba dalam bukunya ‘Beberapa memoar Kehidupan Ayuba’:
“Ingatannya luar biasa; karena ketika dia berusia lima belas tahun dia bisa mengucapkan seluruh Al-Quran di luar kepala.”
Semasa hidupnya di Inggris bersama Bluett, Ayuba tetap melaksanakan sholat dan ibadah lainnya. Bahkan ia menyembelih hewan sendiri sesuai syariat Islam sehingga ia bisa memakan daging yang halal. Selain itu, Ayuba juga mempelajari bahasa Inggris dalam keadaan sakit selama enam pekan.
Ayuba kemudian menulis surat kepada ayahnya. Surat itu akhirnya mendarat di tangan James Edward Oglethorpe. James adalah pendiri koloni Georgia. Karena surat itu ditulis dalam bahasa Arab, James menerjemahkan surat itu di Oxford.
James tersentuh oleh perjuangan yang tertulis dalam surat itu. Bahkan, dia merasa sangat tersentuh sehingga dia rela mengeluarkan uang untuk membeli kebebasan Ayuba dan membawanya ke Inggris. Selain itu James mengatur agar perbudakan dilarang di Georgia, namun, karena tekanan ekonomi di Georgia, larangan itu dicabut.
Ketika Ayuba tiba di Inggris pada 1733, ia diperlakukan sama dengan orang-orang Inggris berkulit putih. Namun, ia berbicara kepada mereka dengan santai. Hal tersebut sangat tidak biasa bagi orang kulit hitam untuk melakukannya pada saat itu. Karena orang-orang kulit hitam Afrika dianggap rendah dalam hal kecerdasan dan dalam hal lainnya oleh orang-orang kulit putih.
Jadi ketika Ayuba akan terlibat dalam perdebatan teologis dengan para imam dan Uskup Kristen, orang-orang terkesan dengan kecerdasan, kepercayaan monoteistik, dan kesalehannya.
Bahkan Raja dan Ratu segera juga ikut bergabung dengan daftar (perdebatan) itu. Dengan semua interaksinya dengan elit sosial negara itu, Ayuba dilantik ke dalam Gentleman’s Society of Spalding, sebuah klub yang merayakan intelektual dan akademisi.
Ayuba, setelah menderita melalui kesulitan-kesulitan seperti terpisah dari keluarganya, dijual ke dalam perdagangan budak, dipaksa bekerja dalam kondisi yang mengerikan, dihina oleh anak-anak, dan dipenjara, akhirnya diakui sebagai orang yang sederajat dengan orang-orang Inggris kulit putih.
William Hoare melukis wajah Ayuba sebelum ia meninggalkan Inggris. Ayuba telah bersedia untuk dilukis mengenakan pakaian tradisionalnya. Ayuba terlihat mengalungkan sesuatu di lehernya, itu adalah satu dari tiga salinan Al-Quran yang dia tulis dari ingatannya selama dia di Inggris. Ia ingin mewakili budaya, agama, dan dirinya sendiri melalui lukisan tersebut. Ketika dilukis ia mengenakan pakaian tradisionalnya. Dia tidak kehilangan identitas aslinya sebagai seorang Muslim Afrika selama dua tahun perbudakan yang dialaminya dengan berat.
Pada 1734, Ayuba kembali dengan selamat ke rumahnya. Ayahnya meninggal, salah satu istrinya menikah lagi karena dia berpikir Ayuba meninggal, dan rumahnya hancur karena perang. Namun, ia kembali mengatasi kesulitan, mengangkat dirinya, dan mampu menjalani kehidupan yang makmur.

Lukisan Ayuba Suleiman Diallo dipajang di galeri seni National Portrait Gallery di London, galeri tersebut menampung koleksi potret orang-orang Inggris yang secara historis penting dan terkenal. (Foto: npg.org.uk)

OF LOIN CLOTH, TODDY AND BROWN SUGAR


The art to extract sap (nora) from coconut trees and make brown sugar was probably introduced into Tanah Melayu by early immigrants of Hindu-India that may go back to the time of Bujang Valley. The coconut tree climbers wore only loin cloths then until a half century ago. They were into toddy (fermented sap which contains alcohol) drinking not so much of making brown sugar or nira taking. 

Traditionally, the Malays prefer to collect nira and make brown sugar (gula kabong) from the anau (kabong) palm found in abundance in natural groves in villages. The palm is easier to climb with the aid of a bamboo ladder. Chinese village shopkeepers then helped to commercialise gula melaka.

The palmyra palm found in abundance in the India-Burma region is also commonly utilised to for sap extraction.


The basic steps to make brown coconut sugar or jaggery (gula melaka):

1. Climb a young coconut tree to look for an unopened flower stalk.

2.. The upper petal of the flower-bearing stalk is bound shut to prevent the bud opening.

3. . The flower-bearing stalk is bent gradually downward and the tip is cut off so that the sap (nira) can ooze out unhampered.



4. The sap is boiled until it becomes a thick orange-brown mass which is then stirred until it crystallizes.

5. The mixture is poured into bamboo canes where it cools and turns hard that you have then to grate or chop it.


A simple way of boiling the sap.

6+ADIB DEATHS - BOMBA DG MUST RESIGN


For strategic reasons, it used to be that the Fire Dept (Bomba) station buildings are located close  to police stations. For many years now they adopt an isolationist policy, their stations are distant from public access. 

They have the penchant to relocate new office sites far from major public access  and  wherever possible on hillocks, perhaps with the idea that people could see them from far to call for help. 

The Kajang Fire Dept is hidden on a hillock so is the brand neew one at Aman Jaya, Ipoh. The Sri Iskandar (Perak) Fire Dept is so isolated out of nowhere. It takes time for the fire engines to reach the towns where much of the buildings are located and hence the centre of emergency action.

This isolationist approach affect the staff mental state for action, alertness, and to be in touch with new experiences to deal with small and major emergency cases. At one time we called a fire department to get rid off a  large hornet's nest behind the house. They asked for RM300 for the service. We found an alternative for free.

All they can say for the 6 deaths of their staff at in a pool at Klang River weir several months ago was that they followed SOP! Emergency situations on land, water, and air differ each time and there is no such cookbook procedures as such but fast respond to the needs of the situations. This requires real life experiences and alertness. 

  
Don't point the finger at us but at your own self! Time to go off bro.

MARZUKI DATED PATRICIA ONLINE


That mamak fellow who had a fake MBA from the University of entah apa? He never went beyond his SPM. So he faked an MBA.  You cannot do an MBA without a bachelors degree. How come no one asked him where he got his fake Bachelor's? Now that mamak fellow is standing trial for corruption. 




That mamak fellow could cheat and lie and steal money from pilgrims. It is proven now -  a fellow who can lie about his university qualifications will have no trouble lying about other things as well.

It is really mind boggling that Bersatu leaders will come out in defense of another character who has been caught lying about his university qualifications. It is bad enough that a wrong has been committed. It becomes worse when the party leadership not only refuses to take any action against the wrongdoers but instead starts to defend them. 

marzuki - Deputy Foreign Minister. What honesty? He is a fake. Must resign. 

Another used Lada : Checks on the faculty members list on the 
website found one “associate professor” Dr Patricia Powell, whose profile
 picture bears the watermark of international online dating site
 AnastasiaDate that predominantly features East European women.

Malaysia's greatest bullshit on industrial economics. Fake or no fake he got 2.6billion!

PULAU BABI - THE ALCATRAZ


Bamboo River is too close for comfort. Moreover, the place is corrupt.

Off you go into the boondocks of Pulau Babi,  the ca distance from the coast of Johore, the Alcatraz of Malaysia to linger for years. Before it was Pulau Jerejak, the notorious island prison.

Do not think of jail break from the maximum security of Pulau Babi. Give them the Guantanamo thing man. 

Why the Prison DG do not think of this or something to that effect? He and the other fellow, DG of Bomba are contented do your own thing. More about him later.












Many more others will join them. How about Khalid, former IGP for example.

THE GLORY OF SABA' (SHEBA), YEMEN


Saba' may reasonably be identified as the Biblical Sheba. It is further referred to in the Surah called after its name: 34:15-20. It was a city in Yemen, said to have been 3 days Journey (~50 miles) from the city of San'a'. A German explorer, Dr Hans Helfritz, claims to have located it in what is now Hadhramawt territory. The famous dam of Ma'rib made the country very prosperous and enabled it to attain a high degree of civilisation. The Queen of Sheba therefore held her head high until she saw the glories of Solomon.


The Queen of Sheba (Balqis in Arabian tradition) possibly ruled over Abyssinia also. The Habasha tribe (after whom Abyssinia was derived) came from Yemen. The Abyssinians possess a traditional history called "The Book of the Glory of Kings" (Kebra Negast), which has been translated from Ethiopic into English by Sir E.A. Wallis Budge (Oxford, 1932). It gives an account of the Queen of Sheba and her only son Menyelek I, as founder of the Abyssinian dynasty.

The ancient religion of the people of Saba' (the Himyar or Sabaeans) consisted in the worship of the heavenly bodies, the sun, the planets, and the stars. Possibly the cult was connected with that of Chaldea, the homeland of Abraham. 

Yemen had easy access to Mesopotamia and the Persian Gulf by way of the sea, as well with Abysssinia. That accounts for the Christians of Najran and the Jewish dynasty of kings (e.g. Dhu Nuwas, d. A.C. 525) who persecuted the Sabaeans in the century before Islam - also for the Abyssinian Christian Governor Abrahah in the year of the Prophet's birth, 570 A.C. Jewish-Christian influences were powerful in Arabia in the 6th century.
