Well, as you can tell from the above title, I'm going to post a little bit about the last MASUM GAMES 2009, as promised. I represented IIUM (UIAM) in Volleyball. Our group was C, together with UDM and the
landlord (read: tuan rumah) host, UUM. The results are as shown.
UUM vs UIAM = 2-0 (UIAM lost)
UDM vs UIAM = 0-2 (UIAM won)
UIAM vs UM = 0-3 (UIAM lost)
Even though we lost only at the second round, before entering the quarter-finals, we have shown our best (read: excuse) and we enjoy the matches very much. Because of the changes of our coach this semester, we did not put our hope too high(more excuses). We put our target for next year MASUM event to be in the top 4 universities, the semi-finalists. Insya Allah. and the Champion title goes to UKM after a long and serious match (3-2) with UPSI in the final.
For those who came to cheer for us( Saiful Rahman, Ikrimah Husni, Qahar, Ridwan, Wafiy Akmal and others), we would like to express our deepest gratitude and apologies for all the troubles. Thank You Very Much.
I have joined many teams but the best was M3 VT, my high school Volleyball team. We are bonded together like a family. We start our training with Al-Fatihah and end it with Kafaratul Majlis and Al-'Asr. We remind each other before each matches, about our main purposes of playing Volleyball that are, to gain mardhatillah, to spread the words of Islam and to show the world, Muslim also can achieve excellent in sports. and we also switched the counting 1~8 to Tasbih for the warming-up session. How I miss those unforgettable moment..

End of MASUM 2009 REPORT by MuNsYi~SaMa No. 5
note: Hilal Asyraf, the author of VT and Langit Ilahi was a junior of mine. He is in the 2004 & 2005 M3 VT with me. I am not sure if my character exist in his book VT though, as he promised, because I could not read it yet.
note2: even though the UIA (Univ. Islam Antarabangsa) VT represents Islamic community generally, they are actually, just as same as any other teams, only with the title 'Islam'. The way they talk to each other, the topic they discuss among them, are just different from M3 VT, not very Islamic, I can say. But not as bad as it may sound. I don't know if I can change them without hurting their feelings. That affects me as well, as I will drifted away from Allah (no H.D.A) whenever I went to MASUM Games. Oh Allah, please open their hearts to receive your hidayah and mine too. Amin.
note3: 'Bersukan untuk Kesihatan'.I don't think the slogan is right. At least not in Malaysia, or so I think. How can you be healthy if you smoke before and after the matches? I saw a lot of sportsmen smoke before their match and it confuses me. How can the cigarettes are good for you but at the same time are harmful and can cause various illnesses? Say no to smoking and cigarette. Say no to unnecessary heart diseases.
