Bidadari Dari Negeri 1000 MenaraBidadari Dari Negeri 1000 Menara by Munif Sulaiman

"Mahukah kamu aku khabarkan dengan sesuatu yang paling berharga dari apa yang disimpan oleh seseorang? Yakni wanita solehah; jika dipandang maka dia menyenangkan, jika diperintahkan dia taat, dan jika suaminya tidak ada (bersamanya), maka dia menjaganya (harta)" (HR. Abu Dawud no.1666) Buku "Bidadari dari Negeri Seribu Menara" ini menjelaskan dan memberi contoh kepada para wanita, untuk selalu menjadikan sifat-sifat mulianya sebagai pelita dalam kehidupan, sebagaimana yang telah dicontohkan oleh para wanita solehah dalam sejarah Islam, sehingga dapat mengubah keadaan alam semesta menjadi mulia dan indah. Al-faqir, menulis buku ini kerana mengingati betapa mulianya kedudukan dan peranan seorang wanita dalam kehidupan ini. Seperti ibu al-faqir yang mendidik anak-anaknya, tanpa seorang suami, kerana dengan keikhlasannya dia dapat menjadikan anak-anaknya tumbuh menjadi peribadi soleh dan solehah, isya' Allah.

Berdialog Dengan Gereja: Sebuah Travelog KedamaianBerdialog Dengan Gereja: Sebuah Travelog Kedamaian by Mujahid Yusof Rawa

"Saya berpendirian dialog antra agama bukanla bererti bertolak ansur dalam isu-isu melibatkan akidah. Hakikatnya ia lebih kepada membina keharmonian di antara penganut-penganut agama yang pelbagai agar tidak mudah terjebak dengan api permusuhan di dalam menangani isu-isu panas. Bukan menjadi rahsia bahawa ada pihak yang untung jika berlaku ketegangan di antara agama. Pihak sebenginilah yang tidak habis-habis meniup api membakar agar ia sentiasa marak di Negara ini. Justeru, kehadiran buku ini sebenarnya tepat pada masanya. Ia merupakan catatan ringkas Dr Mujahid semasa pengalaman beliau menangani isu-isu panas yang menggugat kedamaian antara agama di negara ini. Pengalaman beliau yang juga merupakan Ahli Parlimen Parit Buntar dikumpulkan dalam buku ini bagi pembaca pelbagai kaum mengikut inisiatif dialog di atas nama Parti Islam Se-Malaysia (PAS)" Tuan Guru Nik Abudul Aziz Nik Mat Al-Mursyidul Am Parti Islam Se-Malaysia (PAS)

Engaging Christianity: A Travelogue Of PeaceEngaging Christianity: A Travelogue Of Peace by Mujahid Yusof Rawa

"I am of the belief that interfaith dialogue does not require the compromise of Aqidah. It is in effect about building harmony between different religions, so that they will not fall into enmity when difficulties arise. It is no secret that there are certain parties who seek to benefit from tension between religions. They are relentless in fostering further acrimony and unit. This book is therefore very timely. It is Dr. Mujahid's recollections of his experience in dealing with very sensitive issues that was threatening peace between our country's many religious communities. His experience as MP for Parit Buntar is compiled here to be shared with people of all races, as an initiative of dialogue under the banner of PAS." -Tuan Guru Dato' Bentara Setia Nik Abdul Azis Nik Mat Mursidul Am PAS

Reformasi Pendidikan Iii: Pendidikan Sivik Untuk Penyuburan DemokrasiReformasi Pendidikan Iii: Pendidikan Sivik Untuk Penyuburan Demokrasi by Sri Murniati; Al-Mustaqeem M. Radhi

Demokrasi memerlukan warganegara yang celik politik. Pendidikan sivik dan kewarganegaraan di sekolah adalah salah satu cara untuk melahirkan rakyat yang berkemampuan untuk memikul cabaran demokrasi dan pembinaan negara. Tetapi apakah matapelajaran sivik dan kewarganegaraan yang diajarkan di sekolah-sekolah menengah di Malaysia telah dirumuskan dengan baik untuk memenuhi cabaran ini? Apakah pengetahuan dan keterampilan yang sekarang didedahkan kepada pelajar melalui matapelajaran sivik dan kewarganegaraan dapat melahirkan pelajar yang celik sivik? Jika tidak, apakah yang perlu diperbaiki? Buku ini adalah satu percubaan untuk membincangkan pertanyaan-pertanyaan di atas dan menggunakan pengalaman Jerman sebagai rujukan dan perbandingan untuk memberikan rumusan bagi peningkatan pendidikan sivik dan kewarganegaraan Malaysia.

Monarchy And The Constitution In Malaysia, TheMonarchy And The Constitution In Malaysia, The by Abdul Aziz Bari

This book is a must read for those interested in the working of constitutional democracy in Malaysia for several reasons. Firstly, it deals with the legal issues in a comprehensive way. Unlike most law books that are opaque for lay readers, it is accessible even for non-lawyers due to the lucid way it deals with the subject. Secondly, it is the only work that deals with the legitimacy of the position and roles of the Malaysian monarchy in modern democracy - something that appeals not only to Malaysian but also to those from countries that still retain the institution. Originally a doctoral thesis, the book takes a look at the history and development of the monarchy in Malaysia, which provide the moral bases for its constitutional roles. This is essentially what the provisions in the current constitution are all about. Even though the book deals mainly with the justifications for the continuance of the monarchy institution, it is nonetheless relevant for present-day issues and controversies as those justifications are basically the answers for those questions. These are also the standards by which to judge whether the actions - or inactions - taken by the rulers were justifiable. As such, even though the book does not deal with the more recent crises such as the Perak political crisis in 2009, one may find answers alluded to in the relevant chapters. This is one of the reasons why this book will continue to be relevant in years to come.

Memoirs Of Tan Sri Ani AropeMemoirs Of Tan Sri Ani Arope by Razak, Rogayah; Nor Faridah Abdul Manaf (Eds.)

This memoir is a collection of Tan Sri Ani Arope's writings on his rich and illustrious life. One reads about Ani Arope - his early roots, childhood, schooling days as well as his early adult life. He recounts the moments he met his wife. He writes about the start of his career as a young agronomist, as an agricultural officer, a Fulbright sponsored graduate student in the US, and his successful leadership at MARDI, RRIM and TNB. He talks about his ultimate challenge at TNB. After retirement, Tan Sri Ani Arope takes up flying and talks about how flying is an excellent sport to take away the stresses of life. Tan Sri Ani Arope proved his mantle of strength at the face of adversaries when he writes about his challenges (or rather, acceptance) of his illness as well as dealing with the loss of a close friend and his astute responses to current issues despite his illness. This memoir is a historical yet personal narrative of a life well-lived and provide remarkably clear insights into what shapes Ani Arope as a person and a leader.

Coalitions And Coalition Management: An Introduction To The Art Of Coalition GovernmentCoalitions And Coalition Management: An Introduction To The Art Of Coalition Government by Adam, Rainer; Sebastian Braun

"...This book is not meant to be a theoretical standard work of political science; instead it might become useful as a guide for practitioners in political parties and parliaments, civil society and generally for people interested in politics. I hope that the readers gain some insights into coalition politics as practised in some selected countries but especially in my native Germany. I also hope that the presented analysis inspires and encourages people to think beyond the current frontiers and thereby change the paradigms pertaining to the assessment of parliamentary democracies of the continental European type. Furthermore, I hope that the examples presented from Asia show the dynamics of political decision-making and compromise as we can observe them currently in thesenascent democracies. European and Asian democracies can learn a great deal from each others experience. It is my hope that coalescing and compromise are regaining the respect and appreciation which these values deserve so that democrats worldwide treasure instead of loathe them. Special thanks go to our German intern, Ms. Ann-Christine Winkler, for the collection of basic materials on the subject. I wish to thank Mr. David Harrison-Smith, a young academic from Sydney, Australia, who worked with the Foundation in spring 2007 for the preparation of data sets and the drafting of the two sections on India and Australia. My co-author Sebastian Braun, contributed to the book's completion by updating the part on Indonesia and composing the sections on Malaysia, Thailand, coalition theory and coalition research in chapter 1. He also wrote the part on the coalition negotiations in Germany in 2009 in chapter 3. Ultimately any responsibility for errors and misjudgements remains with us, the two lead authors."

Massacre In Malaya: Exposing Britain's My LaiMassacre In Malaya: Exposing Britain's My Lai by Hale, Christopher

The Malayan Emergency (1948-60) was the longest war waged by British and Commonwealth forces in the twentieth century. Fought against communist guerrillas in the jungles of Malaya, this undeclared 'war without a name' had a powerful and covert influence on American strategy in Vietnam. Many military historians still consider the Emergency an exemplary, even inspiring, counterinsurgency conflict. Massacre in Malaya draws on recently released files from British archives, as well as eyewitness accounts from both the government forces and communist fighters, to challenge this view. It focuses on the notorious 'Batang Kali Massacre' - known as 'Britain's My Lai' - that took place in December, 1948, and reveals that British tactics in Malaya were more ruthless than many historians concede. Counterinsurgency in Malaya, as in Kenya during the same period, depended on massive resettlement programmes and ethnic cleansing, indiscriminate aerial bombing and ruthless exploitation of aboriginal peoples, the Orang Asli. The Emergency was a discriminatory war. In Malaya, the British built a brutal and pervasive security state - and bequeathed it to modern Malaysia. The 'Malayan Emergency' was a bitterly fought war that still haunts the present.
