It is very important to make the student feel more passion about study after do student activity. Unfortunately, some student more into or stuck with the student activity than study itself. It makes student can’t manage their time in good way between study and the student activity.

So, what’s more important study or student activity? Well, maybe every people will have different opinion when they have to answer this question.  Some people maybe will think that study is more important than student activity or vice versa but there are some students who can manage both of the activities equally.  Here are some of opinions from three students who joined student activity but still can manage their time to study well. Those students are Novis, Lisna, and Retno Yuswaningsih or most often called Iyus.

Let’s read about their opinion toward study and student activity. According to Novis who had been joining Green Corps (GC); one of student activity which shows care to nature, student activity is very important since we can improve your experience and make new friends. She also mentioned the reason she choose this kind of student activity. “I like do outdoor activity in natural place” Novis said. She said that this student activity doesn’t bother her study since it can be taken when there is no college or study schedule.  Even if you do need to do it on your study time, you can ask dispensation letter as a proofs of you have been doing activity outside of class to the lecturer. She said that green corps is very interesting because there are so many activity which student can follow like climbing mountain or cliff, natural conservation, blood donor and other Green Corps activities. So, she said that study and student activity are very important at the same level.

According to Lisna who had joined Menwa; short of Rezimen Mahasiswa in bahasa (Rezimen of Student) one of student activity which takes care many things on important event in the university level such as Dies Natalise, ceremony, etc. She said, “This student activity can train us to be more discipline manner since as like as army activity”. The student activity where she joined doesn’t bother her study since it can be taken when there is no college or study schedule.  It is also not disturb the study at all even support it. she said that the student activity is very fun and also give us more benefit like improve our skill and make us find more friends even the activity is tiring. She also share the same opinion with Novis.

According to Retno Yuswaningsih or Iyus who had  joined Oyoth Suked (OS); in bahasa (Grass Root) one of student activity which makes the member do some jurnalism activity like making news, buletin, weekly buletin, even magazine. Student activity can make you have more experience outside academic, make you have new friends, and it is more useful than if we just sleep or play around. She interested to join OS since she interested about journalism and anything that conected to it. OS is very easy going except if there is a deadline coming up. She said that study and student activity are very important to get more knowledge.

That’s all about their opinions about study and student activity. So, according to them there is not term what’s more important. Both of the activities are very important for students. Each of the activity has or gives positive and negative impact, so it’s up to us how we can manage the things by our own since we can judge what should be our priority. We are in the age where we can be called as adult. We need to try something new when we want to have more experiences. Student activity in the campus is an option where we can develop ourself, so we can feel more ready to face the world after we graduated.

Firsly, We gathered in square centre of Banjarnegara at 09.00 am. There were 4 motors and one motor contains 2 people, so we went to Dieng with 8 people. We arrived in Wonosobo at 11.00 am and the weather was not support. It was raining and we in the middle of trip to Dieng Plateau got lost. Oh no, we was in a wrong way. We realized it because there was guideline which showed us. Finally we turned around and found the true way which should we through.

We have arrived where the destination area was close. Wow,..Did you know what I see? The road was curve and sheer but a beautiful scenery began appear. The pine trees was neatly arranged in around of tour destinations. Might be, they wanted to tell us about drizzle, cold and cool weather conditions. It can add to the beauty of landscaping.

Finally, we arrived in the destination. It was Dieng Temples. One of my friends knew one of Dieng Temples official in addition all of us from Banjarnegara because a part of Dieng Tourist Object is Banjarnegara and others Wonosobo therefore we was free to enjoy the beautiful scenery of Dieng Temples. They have unique and beautiful architecture. The character of Dieng temples are Hindu. Most of people call them are Bima, Arjuna, Gatut Kaca, Srikandi, etc. They are the oldest temples in Java.

A Muslim Icon Musician — 18 Mei 2015

A Muslim Icon Musician

Muslims around the world are using multiple media to express their identities. For many Muslim artists, music has become an important space to talk about their faith and the struggles they face. The music ranges from the overtly political to the spiritual. The focus of this post is Maher Zain, a Swedish Muslim of Lebanese descent who rose to fame in 2009 and just released his most recent album Forgive Me this past April. Zain’s music influenced by his faith and has strong religious overtones.

Zain immigrated with his family to Sweden when he was eight years old. After college, he entered the music industry in Sweden and found RedOne, a Moroccan-born Swedish producer, to work with. When RedOne went to New York, Zain followed to continue his pursuit of becoming a music producer. Initially, Zain’s interest in music was not to produce music with religious influences; however, after a visit to Sweden, he became more interested in his faith and decided to stop his career as a music producer and to begin writing and singing songs that demonstrate his commitment to his religious identity.

Zain sings in English and Arabic. His songs are not prescriptive, but emphasize the spiritual aspects of the faith. For example, in his new song is Mawlaya on the album Forgive Me,  he sings about the Prophet Muhammad and his characteristics, especially his role as example to be emulated. In another song on the same album, he sings a song about his mother called Number One for Me.

Zain is part of a group of Muslim musicians, like Sami Yusuf who have become very well known around the Muslim world. Their work draw from numerous musical influences and often are multilingual. They focus mainly on the compassionate nature of Islam, love of God and the Prophet, and the importance of treating women with kindness They do, however, also have songs that address political issues. Yusuf, for example, sang a song with the Danish hip-hop group Outlandish called Try Not to Cry that highlights the Palestinian plight. In 2011, Zain released a song called Freedom that was inspired by the events of the Arab Spring.

Artists like Zain and Yusuf have tapped into an important need in the Muslim community, to have music that reflects their religious commitment. Even if all Muslims do not appreciate their music because of their use of instruments (some Muslims believe that only the voice and a specific type of percussion can be used for music). Their music offers young Muslims an alternative that they can relate to.

Maher Zain is Modern Islamic Singer. He dedicates his soul in the music give us the spirit of his songs. He is the Inspirational singer. Do you like him too? 🙂

World of Illusion

This world is mystery
It is wrapt by luxury, glamorous but deceive
Thousand ways, it has trapped to most of money worldship

Angel of death always be spy
Time brings us to different places
And there are only two places
Wonderful and worst places
They are only in the beyond
