On 2 April 2011, WAMY Malaysia Club held a workshop entitled ‘IDEATOR: Muslim Style of Creative Thinking’. The workshop was held in the lecture room, Masjid Al-Adzim, Pandan Indah Kuala Lumpur. The purpose of this workshop is to train all members or participants of WAMY Malaysia Club in running a creative and fresh program. The trainer of this workshop is Mr. Zamri Mohamad began the training with exercise about self-perception towards an idea. You can analyse the past but you have to design the future. According to Edward De Bono, there are a misconception about creative thinking and critical thinking. Critical thinking is used to analyse and judge. But creative thinking is used to solve problem by design. Judgment seeks the truth and makes decisions based on the past. Design is putting together what we have in order to deliver the values we want.

Youth Outdoor Quest

‘Mukhayyam Khariji’ is an annual event for the members; held to foster discipline and ukhuwwah among it’s members. For the year 2010, it was named Youth Outdoor Quest ’10: Merentas Sirah, Mengukuh Ukhuwwah (YOQ ‘10), and was held in 31st Dec 2010 to 2nd Jan 2011. The place chosen for this highly anticipated event is Kampung Sungai Tua and Kem Nur Laman Bestari Eco Resort Ulu Yam.

These two places were chosenbecause it offers an excellent platform for this year’s Mukhayyam’s theme to be executed. The theme for the mukhayyam is “Merentas Sirah, Mengukuh Ukhuwwah” which means to cherish the sirah of the Prophet s.a.w and to strengthen the ukhuwwah among the members. YOQ ’10’s syllabus for the participants was specially designed to instill the themes among them.

In the beginning of the Mukhayyam, Ustaz Dr. Hanafi had delivered an inspiring opening speech to the participants, as well as to the committees and the virtues of the prophets (pbut) especially the most greatest prophet, Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w). Furthermore, Ustaz Hanafi was also able to talk about in great length on how the sirah can be a guider on how to strengthen our ukhuwwah. After the opening speech, the participants was divided into groups and given the task of completing the map of Arabia in silence, as creative as possible.

This task is made to instill the feeling of Ta’aluf among the participants and also to increase their communication skills. These two events – the opening and the map completion of Arabia – were the two main highlights of the day. On the next day, the participants were given a few clues and were asked to scour the area around Masjid Sungai Tua and the school around it. They had to solve several puzzles and also sell a few items to the locals.The participants were also asked to help clean up the Mosque and certain area of the school. This event is a simulation of the Prophet doing da’wah in the open. After the explorace, the participants had to travel to a new location – the Nur Laman Bistari Camp. This travel is to simulate the Prophets (s.a.w) hijr from Mekah to Madinah.After arriving, the participants were given two outdoor activities to complete – obstacle course and rafting.

The obstacle courses were built to strengthen the ukhuwwah among the members of each group. Each obstacle course also have a set of task to be completed.For the rafting activity, the participants had to build their own raft, within a time frame and use their built raft to cross a lake to solve a puzzle in the middle of a lake. This task was design to train the physical as well as mental capacity of the participants. On the night, the module war games were played. Each group was given a candle and they are told to protect the candle’s flame from other groups. Team works is a key factor in determining who won for this module. The war games module took until midnight where the participants and committees rested after a long and busy day. On the last day, two modules were setup. Jungle trekking and khutbah wida’. In the morning, participants had to walk for an hour across a jungle outside the perimeter of the camp. This module was guided by a ranger from the camp itself. In the middle of the jungle, participants were shown how to build traps using small sticks.

They were also given the chance to build their own traps. This module was designed to train resourcefulness amongst the participants if the needs to survive arrived. After completing jungle trekking and returned back to the camp, Dr. Hanafi Dollah gave a short speech on Khutbah Wida’  as to remind the participants and committees on Rasulullah’s reminder to his ummah. A short closing ceremony was held to commemorate the winning teams after the short speech. The mukhayyam was adjourned around 4.30PM and the participants headed back to IIUM, exhausted but fully satisfied.

Mukhayyam Cinta Ilahi Cintai Diri

Mukhayyam Cinta Ilahi Cintai Diri telah berlangsung dengan jayanya di Kem PULAPES, Bukit Jugra dan Banting. Program ini diadakan khas untuk pelajar tingkatan 3, 4 dan 5 pelajar SMK Sg Pusu pada 23-25 Julai 2010. Jumlah peserta yang mengikuti program ini adalah seramai 92 orang.

Objektif utama Mukhayyam ini adalah untuk menyemai rasa cinta kepada Ilahi. Cinta Ilahi adalah satu manifestasi perhambaan dengan menurut arahan dan melaksanakan perintah Yang Maha Agung tanpa penolakan dan pengingkaran. Kemanisan iman akan hanya dirasai apabila Allah dan Rasul menjadi yang paling dicintai.

Bertitik tolak dari rasa penghambaan inilah, SMK Sg Pusu bekerjasama dengan WAMY dan juga Pusat Zakat Selangor dalam mengadakan satu program “Cinta Ilahi Cintai Diri” sebagai satu  langkah awal membina iman dan taqwa. Para peserta ini terdiri daripada putera puteri Asrama SMK Sungai Pusu yang bakal  merealisasikan slogan “Kami Pemimpin Terbilang pada diri, keluarga, sahabat dan masyarakat “

Antara aktiviti ceramah yang diadakan adalah Zero To Hero, Cogita Differenter, Cinta Ilahi Cintai Diri, dan Menjadi Muslim Super. Aktiviti lain seperti Mafia Wars yang diadaptasi daripada War Game turut diperkenalkan dalam program ini untuk melatih kepandaian setiap kumpulan dalam menyusun strategi menghadapi pihak musuh. Selain itu, kami juga turut mengadakan night walk di kawasan bukit yang dibantu oleh pihak pengurusan kem.

Harapan para pelaksana program ini adalah semoga para peserta akan mengikuti mukhayyam seperti ini pada masa akan datang dan selepas tamatnya program ini para peserta pulang ke destinasi masing-masing dapat mempraktikan segala ilmu yang diperoleh sepanjang mukhayyam ini.
