SMALL DEEDS; never overlook!!

Ever been on a drive?
Inside in your ride
And your looking through the glass,
see a car on the side
The engine's broken and the car is smoking
And the dude is shaking cause the heat is baking
Or this cat's (guy) gotta flat,
and the spare's all whack
No jack in the back,
and no clue where he's at
There ain't no real rush,
but you roll right by
Not even asking the guy if he needs a supply
He might be alright,
and to pass ain't a sin
But within you feel bad the state that he's in
How hard would it been, just to ask "you ok"?
That might be the deed that you need to succeed
That might be the deed that will so please Allah
That your forgiven the sinning you did when you was living
It's a small little thing,
that can cling and just ring
And will bring the blessing from Allah
Who's the King
We pass on the deeds cause they seem all small
But it might be the deed that's the best of them all
Mad when see all the passes
I tookOn these small little deeds
I just overlook

Chorus:
I just can't believe
Small little deeds that I overlook, can you see?
Little deeds that I overlook,
and you read
I read about it in my holy book,
it says
Small deeds never overlook

Picking up trash on the path in a flash
Taking glass from the grass,
as you pass to your class
A smile goes a mile and is sure worthwhile
When a brother's hostile,
and has been for awhile
Put a dollar every day in the sadaqah (charity)
It may be small but you do it for the baraka (blessing)
I know you're saving for the Polo and the Nautica
A poor student but you do it just to please Allah
Things like praying for an ailing brother,
under the weather
Obeying yo your lovely mother,
it's for the better
Stay and help your baby brother,
put on a sweater
Even saying good to one another when you're together
Advice to another sister about a mister
Your wife always go and kiss her,
tell her you miss her
At night do quiet dikhr (mentioning God),

and pray the witr
Invite a guy who wants to bicker,
to share a snicker
Grand plans expand in our small little hands
But we overlook demands that just seem like strands
We get jammed on exams,
cause we skip the small things
Small baby deeds come, bring the blessings!

remember my sahabat....thats small deeds never overlook!!!

let us do it!!! small deeds.....

SURROGATE MOTHER???

Bismillahirrahmanirrahim,

Today, i've something to share with all of you about the topic which is was discuss in my special topic of biotechnology class last monday..

The situation is something like this...
there are a couple(husband and wife) which can't get the baby and they choose to have a baby with GIFT technique(Gamette Intrafallopian Transfer). And both of them choose to give the embryo to surrogate mother and they'll pay for her. The GIFT technique was successfull, BUT, After three months Suddenly(jeng..jeng..jeng), both of them was involve in accident and die..


So, how about the baby??? do you want to proceed the GIFT with surrogate mother OR just abort it, and the rest embryo in the lab...HOW TO DO? Just terminate it or SELL IT to those who want a child???

THINK BOUT THIS???

Here is my conclusion...

First of all, little bit about GIFT. GIFT is similar to IVF(In Vitro Fertilisation). The woman's ovaries are stimulated to produce more eggs than usual, the eggs are collected, and the man needs to produce sperm (although donor sperm can be used). When egg collection has taken place, two eggs are mixed together with the sperm in a dish. The main difference from IVF is that with GIFT the gametes (eggs and sperm) are immediately transferred to the woman's fallopian tubes, so fertilisation occurs inside, not outside, the woman’s body. The embryo can begin its earliest development in natural surroundings rather than in an artificial environment.

Ok, now, let us talk about this situation, for me, my suggestion is, abort the baby and terminate the rest of embryo in the lab. Basically, in Islam, surrogate mother is forbidden. So, HOW??? thats why ISLAM give us an alternative, with allow man to marry wif four women ..(hehe..don't scolding on me!)
Ok, now, let us talk in differ view, if i say yes! we must to give a live to the baby, BUT?? HOW about baby's feeling after he/she born into the world, without parents, become an orphan..who want to take care to him/her??
Even there are many people want to have a children, but, this is about descent(keturunan), nasab and many more.. if she/he born from surrogate mother...is she want to take care to he/she as long as she to that just for money??, i don't think she willing to take care to the child....

For me, if somebody ask me about this, i just tell them,If Islam say HARAM, there is something that will be become a problem if we do it...

Below, an answer from Islamic scholar about surrogate mother
( i quoted from islamonline.net)
Surrogate motherhood is often euphemistically referred to as “hiring a womb.” The procedure involves using the service of another woman to serve as a carrier for the fertilized ovum of a couple. The woman makes herself available to inject the fertilized ovum into her own womb and then carries the child to its full term on behalf of the other couple. It is often done in lieu of a specified remuneration or free of charge. People resort to this procedure either because a married woman who desires to have a child has problems in carrying her child to its full term or because of her desire to simply forgo the “trouble” of conception and labor.
According to the rules of Shari`ah, surrogate motherhood as described above is not allowed, since it involves introducing the sperm of a male into the uterus of a woman to whom he is not married and, thus, it clearly falls under the specific category of transgressing the bounds of Allah as stated in the Qur’an: (Those who guard their private parts except from their spouses…) (Al-Mu’minun: 5). “Whosoever goes beyond that are indeed transgressors” (Al-Mu’minun 23: 7).By introducing a third party into the family equation, this procedure throws into confusion the issue of the identity of the child.
In Islam, every child has a right to a definite parentage, namely, that of a father and mother. In the case of surrogate motherhood, the question arises as to the identity of the real mother of the child thus conceived. Is she the genetic mother who provides the egg from which the child is born, or is she the woman whose womb serves as a carrier for the child? Such confusion is bound to affect the child emotionally as he will be torn between two mothers.

Further, it may also lead to legal fights over the parentage of the child, as happened in the United States in the case of a child thus conceived in 1987.Finally, the entire procedure amounts to dehumanizing the process of human procreation by reducing womb down to the level of a commodity that can be bought or rented for service. Ultimately, such a process, yet again, violates the dignity and honor that Allah Almighty has bestowed on man and woman.
