the end of a new beginning

These 2 songs were supposed to be in our second album, but because of time limitation and marketing strategy by our former recording company(Supra 7), they had these songs compiled as a repackaged version with a new cover album featuring only 4 of our member since Faizal left the group. I will tell you insyaAllah how we met each other and how it all begin...until we are in the situation that we're in...with the latest version you wouldn't get anywhere else...
Now that we are an independent group with no label, so Supra 7 and Universal Music are out of the story...I can definitely say that the repackage album was the end of a new beginning...
Anyway,even without a proper contract we can still do our job...which is to spread the true meaning of the teaching of our religion to the world.
This song is about the most essential key in the pillars of Islam, which is the prayer. Why did I say that? Because this is the one and only command that Allah gave the prophet directly not through the angel Jibril/Gabriel...the prophet had to be prepared physically and mentally before the event took place, and was taken to the highest level of the heaven (Sidratul Muntaha) a place where not even the angels can simply go and meet the Lord. This practice is the only thing that separates a Muslim and non-Muslim, the first thing that will be ask in our graves, the way to solve problems, how we connect with God, the protector from doing sins and many more...We may have heard this points many times before, but couldn't really grasp the true objective in performing it. For example, in the solat..we actually do all the 5 pillars in Islam...1. we did recite the testimony of faith (2 words of Shahadah), 2. Solat came in the second place, 3. we did not eat and drink during Solat, in a way are actually fasting... 4. we did spend our time and energy for the sake of Allah to do it, in a way of giving Zakat...5. we did the Solat heading towards the Kaabah in Makkah where we actually did when performing hajj/pilgrimage...
and by performing Solat, we are actually practicing our 6 pillars of faith...1. we did believed in the Oneness of God, 2. we did believed in the angels who brought the messages from God to the prophets, 3. we had already believed in all the prophets sent by God, because the Solat was only done by the prophet, not prescribed in the Quran 4. we believed in the books (Torah, Zabur, Injil, Furqan), 5. we believed in the hereafter, because if not, we wouldn't pray at all.. 6. we did believe the pre-destination by God whether it is good or bad.
Thus by searching the right way to perform this obligatory practice, we had discovered so many unrevealed answers which is the true meaning of the religion... the important of having knowledge! Allah said in the first ayah in Quran: "Proclaim! in the name of Thy Lord and Cherisher who created"
For example, to perform the Solat, we have to learn the history and literature.. because nobody in our time had actually met the prophet, all we have is his Sunnah.. we have to search the direction of the kiblat , which brings us to geography and astronomy, before and during the Solat, we have to be clean which brings us to medicine, science and biology.. the numbers of rakaats and the exceptional things that cater the one in journey and the sick brings us to mathematics...in order to build the place of worship so called the mosque brings us to architecture, the need to teach others about the way to perform Solat brings us to art and technology, to prepare the means of traveling to Masjidil haram brings us to engineering and a whole lot more! this is only a mere example that I could think of at this time...I think human beings aren't just capable to think beyond what Allah have prescribed for us, if we want to write it down in a paper using the sea as the ink, we will fail to do so even if a double size of the sea of ink came to refill the pen we use to write it down.



If you had notice the achievements that we got only came from 2 songs, 'hikmah kembara' and 'aku tanpa cintaMu'...it was a successful experiment made by us as a team with the producers, so we were thinking to make another hit just like those 2...so these 2 new songs were specifically composed using the same mood as the previous hit. So if a duet with a veteran hit the pot, what if we do a duet with a new comer? what kind of impact do the song have...after all, we are just trying to convey the message to people, if the message is not delivered properly, then what is the point of delivering...if you know what I'm saying....
anyway, this song is about a person who is dying and wants to repent all his wrongdoings for his entire life...it's the scariest thing ever going to happen to all of us...whether we are prepared or not, young or old...no one is going to escape death...let's face it my brothers and sisters...one day, we will not be here to see the world... so let us be prepared in whatever way that we can...
Wallahu a'lam
