Istikharah Sebelum Memangkah

That's what I say to a friend to cool down a heated discussion regarding the coming election. But I think, I should recommend everyone to 'Istikharah sebelum memangkah'.

Direct translation of my recommendation is 'Istikharah before voting'. Istikharah is 'The Prayer for Seeking Guidance'. It's one of the privilege given to all muslims, therefore we must not waste this great advantage.

Tomorrow is the big day. To tell you the truth, I'm really worry. Worry about the future of my country, my community, my family, my friends, my next generation, our next generation. Worry about my life.

I'm an idealist. Really. I wish for a peaceful & economically thriving country. A country with intelligence. A country without poverty. A country free of crimes. A country with high morale and spiritual strength. A country where a hadhari act as a hadhari.

My country is slowly losing all that and that makes me worry.

It's not easy being an idealist in an imperfect world. It makes my struggle for emotional intelligence harder.

Tomorrow, I have a chance to make a difference. Only 1 vote, but I hope it counts. I really, really wish the election will go fairly.

Again, will my wish come true?


The election result was so refreshing. I don't have to worry so much about the citizens of Malaysia. We're very smart people. I'm so happy!
