Manakan dapat sagu kalau tidak dipecahkan ruyungnya?
Manakan dapat mutiara yang berkerlipan jika takut menyelam ke lautan dalam.
Dalam diri setiap manusia, ada seketul daging.
Jika baik ia, maka baiklah seluruh jiwa manusia itu.
Jika buruk ia, buruklah juga manusia itu...
Seketul daging itu adalah hati,
mari kita lapangkan dada dan belajar mengIKHLASkan hati.
Perjalanan seribu batu bermula dengan satu langkah.
Marilah meneroka dunia pemikiran hamba.
Silakan

Segala yang dipaparkan menggambarkan pemikiran penulis yang turut terserap di dalam setiap penulisan buku dan artikel. Lihat Cara-cara mendapatkan buku tulisan Merah Silu @ Radzi Sapiee. Di atas adalah satu klip video selama hampir setengah jam yang merupakan demo pilot episode yang mahu digunakan untuk mencadangkan satu siri pengembaraan menyusuri sejarah Melayu Islam sekeliling Nusantara untuk siaran televisyen. Entah mengapa ia menemui masalah. Kemudian penulis diberitahu konsepnya diciplak sebuah stesyen televisyen. Lihat Kembara Sejarah Islam Nusantara : The original material...



Ini adalah klip video ulasan buku ketujuh saya "Jejak keluarga Yakin : Satu sketsa sejarah" berserta temuramah yang dibuat siaran langsung di Selamat Pagi Malaysia, RTM1. Lihat Siaran langsung ulasan buku "Jejak keluarga Yakin : Satu sketsa sejarah" dan temu ramah di Selamat Pagi Malaysia.



Penulis juga pernah diminta membuat pembentangan mengenai siri buku "Berpetualang ke Aceh" di Masjid Sultan Salahuddin iaitu masjid negeri Selangor di Shah Alam. Lihat Buku "Berpetualang" dan himpunan ulamak Nusantara yang diketuai ulamak Aceh


-------------------------



Siri novel "Berpetualang ke Aceh" boleh didapati dalam bentuk e-book. Masuk http://www.e-sentral.com/, klik kategori novel am dan taip perkataan "Aceh" pada kotak carian. Atau terus klik Buku 1,Buku 2 dan Buku 3.

Penerbitan trilogi novel "Berpetualang ke Aceh" juga membawa penulis untuk terlibat dengan banyak majlis ilmu. Rujuk kumpulan links artikel di bawah tajuk "Siri Refleksi Sejarah", pada bahagian paling bawah kiri blogspot, . Penulis juga agak aktif dalam aktiviti-aktiviti kedaulatan Melayu dan Islam, dapat menganjurkan majlis-majlis sendiri di merata Semenanjung Malaysia membawa ke luar negara di Aceh. Lihat blogspot Himpunan Kedaulatan Melayu Islam Akhir Zaman (HIKMAH).


Ketika menulis perenggan ini 4 Mei 2015 penulis sedang berusaha untuk mengembangkan isi 3 buku dalam siri "Berpetualang ke Aceh" menjadi 6 buku yang akan membentuk siri baru dipanggil "Siri Pengembaraan Merah Silu". Sebuah syarikat penerbitan telah bersetuju untuk menerbitkan siri lama itu kembali dalam bentuk yang lebih segar - Setiap buku asal dipecah menjadi 2 buku baru yang ditambah maklumat, gambar dan peta berwarna-warni.Pertengahan September 2015 buku pertama siri baru pun selamat diterbitkan. Seminggu lebih kemudian penulis berpeluang bercakap tentangnya secara siaran langsung dalam televisyen lalu membawa wakil penerbit bersama. Lihat video di bawah :-






Awal tahun 2015 turut menyaksikan penulis diambil menjadi penyelidik dan hos satu siri dokumentari yang dipanggil "Daulah Melayu". Projek 13 episod sepanjang sejam setiap satu ini mahu mengenengahkan formula untuk mengembalikan kekuatan bangsa Melayu. Insyaallah projek iakan membawa penulis untuk mengembara ke merata di Malaysia dan Indonesia juga ke beberapa negara dan tempat di Eropah termasuk ke kota London, tempat penulis mengambil ijazah matematik 1991-1995. Siri dokumentari ini dijangka siap untuk tayangan televisyen dalam tempoh 2 tahun.

Pemandangan pekan, bandar dan bandar raya yang pernah dijadikan artikel

Salam lewat petang Jumaat. Hari ini sudah 24 hari penduduk Malaysia disuruh duduk rumah atas Perintah Kawalan Pergerakan demi membendung wabak serangan virus Covid-19 yang sedang melanda dunia. Semasa pertama kali diumumkan 3 minggu lalu PKP disebut akan berlangsung selama 14 hari sahaja iaitu daripada 18 hingga.-31 Mac. Lebih kurang seminggu selepas itu diumumkan penambahan lagi 14 hari iaitu pada 1-14 April. Tadi petang jam 4 dah tambah lagi sehingga 28 April pula. Oleh kerana dah tak boleh jalan ke mana-mana buat masa yang lama ada eloknya ditelaah artikel-artikel lama.

Nasib baik pada 15-17 Mac saya, isteri dan anak-anak sempat balik kampung di Muar untuk bertemu ibu bapa. Sebetulnya seminggu sebelum itu saya telah mengumpulkan dan mengatur lebih 1,000 artikel daripada blogspot berbahasa Inggeris BERPETUALANG KE ACEH untuk dikompilasikan menurut kategori-kategori tertentu. Sejak bertahun lamanya blogspot tersebut telah digunakan untuk artikel-artikel pemandangan tempat yang boleh menyokong penceritaan di sini. Setelah beberapa lama baru terfikir untuk mengumpul menurut kategori seperti bandar, gunung, tasik sedangkan kategori khas untuk sungai sudah lama dipaparkan di bahagian bawah blogspot ini.




Untuk hari ini biar dikongsikan kompilasi artikel menunjukkan pemandangan pekan, bandar dan bandar raya. Saya kira tadi ada 67 tempat sebegitu di Semenanjung Malaysia telah diambil gambar daripada pelbagai sudut dan masa. Ada dari tepian jalan, ada dari atas bangunan tinggi, ada dari tepi sungai asalkan nampak bangunan-bangunan menunjukkan ia pusat aktiviti manusia. Untuk Muar sahaja terdapat 16 buah artikel telah dibuat pada pelbagai tarikh, Kuala Lumpur pula ada 14.

Untuk Indonesia terdapat 27 buah pekan/bandar/bandar raya telah diliputi dalam tempoh lebih 10 tahun. Untuk Banda Aceh sahaja ada 16 buah artikel (oopsss... orang Aceh tak suka disebut sebagai sebahagian daripada Indonesia). Namun bila dah buat kompilasi baru tersedar saya cuma membuat satu artikel sahaja bagi bandar raya terbesarnya dan ibu kota iaitu Jakarta. Itupun daripada satu tempat khusus sahaja, kurang menunjukkan kehebatan bandar raya. Sedangkan sudah merata saya dan keluarga pusing Jakarta, cuma tak terfikir nak betul-betul ambil gambar pemandangan bandar raya.

Untuk Thailand juga 27 buah pekan/bandar/bandar raya telah diambil gambar lalu dijadikan artikel. Nasib baik tak terlupa mengambil gambar  pemandangan bandar raya terbesarnya dan ibu kota iaitu Bangkok  sehingga dapat membentuk 8 artikel. Turut diambil banyak gambar daripada beberapa bahagian dan sudut adalah Hatyai (19 artikel daripada 5-6 kali lawatan), Patani dan Songkhla (masing-masing 7 buah artikel). Ada juga gambar-gambar pemandangan kota Mekah dan Madinah termasuk dari atas Jabal Nur dan Gua Hira'.

Namun koleksi ini tidak meliputi semua tempat yang pernah saya lawati. Cuma tidak ada gambar, kalau ada tentu akan disertakan sekali artikel menunjukkan pemandangan kota-kota terkenal dunia seperti London, Paris, Frankfurt dan banyak lagi. Insyaallah ini akan diusahakan pada masa hadapan. Buat masa ini terimalah apa yang ada...
