Perkhidmatan monorel Arafah-Mina siap


Perkhidmatan monorel Arafah-Mina siap


2011/10/31

MAKKAH: Sistem monorel Al Mashaaer Al Mugaddassah Metro Southern Line (Makkah Metro) kini siap sepenuhnya bagi membawa jemaah haji antara Arafah dan Mina. 

Penolong Pengurus Stesen Arafah 1, Yuszaini Mohd Yusop, berkata pada musim haji tahun lalu, perkhidmatan itu beroperasi hanya 35 peratus.
"Perkhidmatan tren ini adalah bagi mengatasi kesesakan jalan raya yang sering berlaku pada setiap musim haji terutama ketika jemaah bergerak menuju ke Padang Arafah untuk melakukan wukuf," katanya di sini.

Wukuf iaitu satu daripada rukun haji yang mesti dipenuhi oleh setiap anggota jemaah, pada tahun ini ialah pada 5 November bersamaan 9 Zulhijjah. 

Jemaah dengan berpakaian ihram akan bergerak dari Makkah menuju ke Padang Arafah pada 4 November dan bermalam di sana. 

Yuszaini adalah seorang daripada 146 kakitangan Keretapi Tanah Melayu Bhd (KTMB) yang dipinjamkan bertugas dengan Makkah Metro. 

Sistem monorel itu mempunyai sembilan stesen melibatkan tiga lokasi utama iaitu Arafah, Muzdalifah dan Mina (setiap tempat mempunyai tiga stesen), dengan jarak 20 kilometer.

Yuszaini berkata, monorel sepanjang 300 meter mempunyai 12 gerabak dengan 60 pintu, mampu membawa antara 3,500 dan 4,000 penumpang setiap perjalanan. 

Monorel dengan kelajuan 80 kilometer sejam dilengkapi pendingin hawa, peralatan keselamatan dan kecemasan serta pemantauan kamera litar tertutup. 

Beliau berkata, kepakaran yang dimiliki kakitangan KTMB dalam mengendalikan sistem pengangkutan serupa di Malaysia mendapat kepercayaan pihak berkuasa Arab Saudi untuk mengendalikan perkhidmatan Makkah Metro. 

Kumpulan wartawan dari negara Islam turut dibawa meninjau persiapan untuk menerima jemaah haji dari seluruh dunia di Padang Arafah. 

Khemah sudah didirikan untuk menempatkan jemaah mengikut benua dan negara. - BERNAMA

Tabung Haji bincang dalam perjumpaan tahunan dengan Arab Saudi 

JEDDAH: Malaysia sentiasa mengambil kesempatan untuk membincangkan isu mengenai penambahan kuota haji menerusi perjumpaan tahunan dengan pihak berkuasa haji di Arab Saudi.
Menteri di Jabatan Perdana Menteri, Datuk Seri Jamil Khir Baharom, berkata beberapa bulan selepas musim haji, biasanya April, beliau bersama wakil Lembaga Tabung Haji (Tabung Haji) akan ke Arab Saudi untuk mengadakan perjumpaan atau 'post mortem' dengan kerajaan Arab Saudi untuk meninjau prestasi pelaksanaan ibadah haji yang lalu.


Beliau berkata, Arab Saudi akan diwakili Kementerian Haji dan Wakaf, serta badan yang bertanggungjawab mengenai urusan haji, termasuk pihak yang menyambut ketibaan jemaah di lapangan terbang, pengangkutan, penginapan, dan ziarah, sehingga kemudahan di Arafah, Muzdalifah dan Mina yang akan membuat komen serta teguran mengenai perjalanan musim haji. 
Katanya, setiap perjumpaan itu pihaknya akan mengambil kesempatan untuk mengutarakan isu mengenai penambahan kuota jemaah haji Malaysia yang dibenarkan kerajaan Arab Saudi untuk menunaikan ibadah haji setiap tahun. 

“Isu kuota ini fenomena sejagat, semua negara di seluruh dunia menghadapi fenomena ini, untuk membawa jemaah seramai mungkin menunaikan haji di Tanah Suci,” katanya kepada kumpulan media Tabung Haji ketika ditemui di pejabat Konsulat Jeneral Malaysia (Hal Ehwal Haji) di sini, kelmarin, sebaik tiba di sini dari Kuala Lumpur. 

Jamil Khir berkata, ketika ini terdapat 5.7 juta pendeposit Tabung Haji, dengan 733,000 daripadanya mendaftar dan masih menunggu kebenaran untuk menunaikan haji, manakala kuota yang dibenarkan tahun ini ialah kira-kira 28,000, meningkat kira-kira 2,000 berbanding tahun lalu. 


Beliau berkata, kerjasama yang diberikan kerajaan Arab Saudi itu juga berkait rapat dengan hubungan akrab Perdana Menteri, Datuk Seri Najib Razak dengan kerajaan itu. 

Katanya, Tabung Haji adalah institusi Islam yang unik dan hebat apabila ia bukan saja bertanggungjawab menyempurnakan ibadah pelanggan, pada masa sama memberikan pulangan baik kepada pendeposit, apabila keuntungan institusi itu mencecah berbilion ringgit. 

Katanya, selain itu keuntungan yang diberikan kepada pendeposit juga mengambil kira tanggungjawab menunaikan kewajipan menyempurnakan tuntutan pembayaran zakat. 

“Ini yang perlu dipertahankan, untuk menjadikan Tabung Haji bukan sekadar institusi biasa, tapi sebuah institusi yang dapat beri balik pulangan kepada umat Islam,” katanya. 

Januari lalu, Pengerusi Tabung Haji, Tan Sri Abi Musa Asa'ari Mohamed Nor mengumumkan pembayaran bonus 5.5 peratus bagi 2010 yang berjumlah RM1.33 bilion, dan peningkatan pembayaran bonus itu dibuat berikutan prestasi kewangan institusi itu yang lebih baik tahun lalu. – BERNAMA

MALANG...kombinasi     kemalangan yang  mengakibatkan  Simoncelli  maut  di Litar Sepang,  semalam.MALANG...kombinasi kemalangan yang mengakibatkan Simoncelli maut di Litar Sepang, semalam.

TIDAK sampai dua pusingan dilangsungkan, perlumbaan kategori MotoGP Grand Prix Motosikal Malaysia semalam bertukar menjadi tragedi ngeri apabila penunggang Itali, Marco Simoncelli mengalami kemalangan maut.

Simoncelli, 24, mengalami kemalangan pada pusingan kedua dan dilanggar oleh jentera ditunggang Colin Edwards dan Valentino Rossi ketika dia terseret ke tepi litar dengan jentera Honda miliknya.

Topi keledarnya tercabut dalam kejadian itu dan perlumbaan di Litar Antarabangsa Sepang itu diberhentikan dengan bendera merah dan kemudiannya dibatalkan terus.

Edwards dari pasukan Yamaha turut mengalami kemalangan tetapi tidak mengalami kecederaan serius, manakala Rossi mampu untuk meneruskan tunggangan bersama jentera Ducati.

Simoncelli terbaring kesakitan di litar sebelum dikejarkan ke pusat perubatan litar itu apabila dia disahkan meninggal dunia pada jam 4.56 petang akibat kecederaan teruk di bahagian kepala, leher dan dada.

“Setiap orang yang terbabit dengan MotoGP mengucapkan takziah kepada keluarga Marco, rakan-rakan dan pasukan dalam apa yang dianggap kehilangan tragik ini,” kata MotoGP dalam satu kenyataan.

Casey Stoner, yang memenangi kejuaraan MotoGP dunia kedua pada Grand Prix Australia minggu lalu, berkata: “Sebaik saya saksikan sorotan itu, ia membuatkan saya rasa sedih. Apabila topi keledar tercabut, ia satu petanda yang tidak baik.” Kematian Simoncelli adalah yang pertama dalam kelas perdana itu sejak seorang lagi penunggang Honda, Daijiro Kato, terbunuh pada Grand Prix Jepun 2003.

Shoya Tomizawa turut maut dalam kemalangan serupa seperti Simoncelli dalam Moto2, satu kelas di bawah MotoGP, tahun lalu.

Simoncelli, yang lebih dikenali dengan potongan rambut ala afro, bermula dalam kelas 125cc pada 2002 sebelum berpindah ke kelas 250cc pada 2006. Dia menjuarai kelas 250cc dunia pada 2008.

Ia juga tragedi kematian pertama berlaku di Sepang.

Pengarah Perubatan MotoGP, Dr Michele Macchiagodena mengesahkan kematian Simoncelli.

“Simoncelli terbabit dengan tragedi kemalangan teruk yang menyebabkan kecederaan teruk di kepala, leher dan dada. Ketika tiba di kawasan kemalangan, pasukan perubatan mendapati dia sudah tidak sedarkan diri.

“Sebaik menaiki van ambulans, kakitangan perubatan memberi rawatan kecemasan dan diteruskan sehingga tiba di pusat perubatan, namun gagal untuk diselamatkan,” kata Macchiagodena.

“Satu siasatan akan dilakukan mengenai bagaimana topi keledarnya boleh tercabut,” kata Pengarah Perlumbaan MotoGP, Paul Butler yang menjawab pertanyaan wartawan mengenai insiden itu.

44 out of 100 Malaysians inactive and not healthy


KOTA KINABALU: Forty-four Malay­sians out of every 100 are inactive and this is affecting their health.
They neither exercise nor carry out any kind of activity to keep themselves healthy, said Deputy Health Minister Datuk Rosnah Abdul Rashid Shirlin.
Quoting the national health and morbidity survey done in 2006, she said it was easy to exercise and it could be done anywhere, including at home, the work place and shopping malls.
Taking this into consideration, the ministry launched its 10,000 Steps A Day campaign in June 2009 to encourage healthy living among Malaysians.
Apart from promoting exercise, the campaign is also aimed at educating Malaysians on non-contagious diseases such as heart problems, obesity and diabetes.
“The number of sufferers of these diseases is increasing due to an unhealthy lifestyle,” she said at the launch of the state-level senior citizens’ day celebration here on Saturday.
At another event in Petaling Jaya, Rosnah said the ministry had launched a national plan to promote the importance of oral hygiene among the young.
The National Oral Hygiene Plan has seven key goals, including the target to have 50% of children aged six free of dental caries by the year 2020. The plan also hopes to see at least 60% of citizens aged 60 to still have at least 20 perfect teeth intact by then.
The plan would see the Govern­ment working with private agencies and non-governmental organisations in dental care, Rosnah said at the launch of World Oral Health Day at Tropicana Mall yesterday.

Pencarum KWSP Usah Lengah Namakan Waris


KUALA LUMPUR: Semua ahli Kumpulan Wang Simpanan Pekerja (KWSP) khususnya mereka yang mempunyai sekurang-kurangnya RM3,000 dalam simpanan perlu menamakan waris simpanan mereka.

KWSP berkata, tanpa penamaan, keluarga atau waris terdekat pencarum yang meninggal dunia terpaksa melalui proses sukar dan memakan masa untuk menuntut simpanan ahli.

“Ahli yang mempunyai sekurang-kurangnya RM3,000 dalam simpanan KWSP dan belum membuat penamaan waris harus menyahut seruan ini segera. “Amaun ini cukup besar untuk disalurkan kepada tanggungan mereka,” kata Pengurus Besar Perhubungan Awam KWSP, Nik Affendi Jaafar dalam kenyataan di sini, semalam.

Katanya, proses penamaan waris hanya mengambil masa beberapa minit di mana ahli hanya perlu mengisi Borang KWSP 4 dan menyerahkan kepada cawangan KWSP terdekat.

Menurutnya, penamaan KWSP mengatasi wasiat bertulis dan bagi ahli beragama Islam yang mempunyai penamaan, penama bertindak sebagai pentadbir yang bertanggungjawab mengagihkan simpanan itu mengikut hukum faraid. - Bernama

Hibah (Gift)


Gift (Hibah)
Hibah is the giving of a gift whether it is given to one who is in need or to a well-to-do person, and thus it differs fromsadaqah which is meant only for the needy though they may be one's relatives. The giving of gifts (including charity) is praised, while the withholding of small gifts is denounced as against the spirit of Islam. Stress is laid on developing the spirit of brotherhood by the giving of gifts, great or small as one can find. Even a poor man may give a gift out of the charity he has received. Compensation for a gift received is recommended. The giving of a gift to one child would be an injustice to other children, and it is therefore not allowed. A husband can give a gift to his wife and vice-versa. A wife may give gifts out of the property she has received from her husband. A joint gift may be given to more persons than one, and a gift may be given out of joint property. A gift may be given to, and received from, a non-Muslim. It is forbidden to take back what has once been given as a gift. A gift for life is recognized subject to certain conditions. Property may be dedicated as waqf, becoming thus inalienable, or as waqf `ala-l-aulad. One who receives a gift or any other good from another must give expression to thanks.

Gift
(Hibah and Waqf)
"As for him who gives (gifts) and guards against evil and accepts the best, We will facilitate for him the easy end" (92:5).
"Woe to the praying ones, who are unmindful of their prayers, who do good to be seen, and withhold small gifts" (107:4-7).

HOW DO YOU TURN YOUR ASSETS INTO A GIFT
WITHOUT A WILL DURING YOUR OWN LIFETIME?
Hibah - A gift for the ones you love during your own lifetime for Muslims
Our spouses Our children. They are the very source of our happiness. As such, it is only natural for us to provide them with security and protection to ensure their safety and happiness. While this does not pose much of a problem if done on a daily basis, wherein lays the safety net in the event of the unexpected? Our calling to The Almighty is not something we can predict. Which then raises the question: In the event, what will happen to our loved ones?
What is Hibah Harta?
Hibah Harta, is a private contractual arrangement whereby a person (the Donor) allocates his property, during his lifetime, to his loved ones (the Donees). In doing so, the property allocated thus will be held in trust. This concept involves three parties - The Donor, The Donee and The Trustee.
Upon the Donor's demise, the Trustee will then transfer the gifted property to the Donee. As Hibah Harta is a private contract done during the lifetime of both the Donor and the Donee, the property will not form part of the Donor's estate, and not subjected to the Probate and Administration Act and Faraid. Hence, this makes the transfer of the Donor's assets smoother and trouble-free.
In Islam, it is encouraged (sunat) to perform Hibah your asset. Hibah is not subject to laws relating to Estate (Deceased Estate). Thus, the time taken to distribute the Donor's assets according to his wishes would be easier and faster. In doing so, the Donor is also ensuring the well being and harmony of his family.
The difference between Hibah Harta and a Will?
Without Hibah Asset or a Will (Deceased Estate)
The administration of your estate may encounter many unforeseen problems and difficulties, as it would be subject to the rules and regulations of various regulatory authorities which can prove to be daunting and time consuming. Either way, the distribution process of your estate may take between 6 months to 10 years. There have been cases which stretched up to 20 years.
With a Will
The processing time of a Will is a little shorter (between 3 to 6 years), as the terms of your Will may have to be read out in the Civil Courts. However, this procedure is still subject to the various Acts and Regulations such as: Probate and Administration Act, Rules of The High Court, Faraid / Will Act.
With Hibah Harta
As Hibah is a private agreement made between two consenting parties during their lifetime, it is not subject to any laws relating to the estate of the deceased or a Will. Thus, the time taken to perfect the assignment of your assets by way of Hibah will take only between 14 days to 3 months.
The assets of the gifted property will be preserved and managed by the Trustee. Hence, preserving the security and well-being of the Donor, the gifted property will be wholly owned by the Donee only upon the demise of the Donor.
With Hibah, you can be assured that your loved ones will be well taken care of when you are no longer around to do so. You will rest easy with Hibah.
