May it please you, My Lords.

The Supreme Court of the United Kingdom has come into existence, by virtue of Constitutional Reform Act 2005, which relinquishes the exercise of judicial power from the House of Lords, the upper house of English Parliament. The Supreme Court began to operate from 1st October 2009.

Previously, final appeal in criminal and civil cases from English and Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland will lay in the House of Lords, (save for criminal appeal from Scotland). Cases which reach the House of Lords will be heard by judicial committee, consists of peers (lords) which ordinarily do not participate in legislative debate. 

Every peer (including the judges) who sits in the House of Lords will be conferred the peerage by letter of patent from the Queen herself. Judges in the House of Lords are styled as Lord of Appeal in Ordinary or commonly referred to as Law Lord.

Initially, upon departure of the Law Lords to their new home at the Supreme Court, the new judges who were not a member of the House of Lords will not hold title as the peer does.This happens when Sir John Dyson was elevated to the Supreme Court, as he remained as Sir John. This however changes when the Queen, on 12 December 2010, issues a a warrant declaring that every Justice of the Supreme Court of United Kingdom  be conferred honorific title, as the gentleman will be styled as "Lord" or "Lady" for female judges, thus Sir John Dyson is now Lord Dyson. The wife of the Justices will be described as "Lady".

*During my student years, cases decided by the House of Lords are the highest authority a student can ever have and hold, even in a Commonwealth county like Malaysia, where the decisions are revered and looked upon with full of respect. Names like Lord Denning, Lord Atkin, Lord Bingham, Lord Keith, of Kinkel will be in the exam papers with the fullest hope of impressing if not scaring our lecturers with the answers. The Constitutional Reform does give huge shock to me, just like Lord Hope of Craighead observed on 21st of July 2009 in the House of Lords, that "the House will be losing part of itself". "Why give up something so valuable? " His Lordship further asked. To this, i must nod.

Derma Darah

Tengahari tadi telah ke Kementerian Teknologi dan Inovasi (MOSTI) di Parcel C, Presint 1, Putrajaya. Tujuan ke sana ialah untuk menderma darah. Hospital Putrajaya tidak mempunyai bank darahnya sendiri, justeru, cara yang mudah ialah menunggu Bank Darah bergerak ini tiba melabuhkan sauhnya di Putrajaya. Setelah merujuk kepada website Pusat Darah Negara, ada pusat derma darah dibuka di MOSTI.

Diwar-warkan di radio bahawa Pusat Darah Negara kekurangan darah. Darah tersebut digunakan bagi mereka yang memerlukan, terutama bagi kes-kes kecemasan. 

Jenis darah ialah secara amnya ialah jenis A, jenis B, jenis AB dan jenis O.Terdapat juga jenis darah selain ABO ini, yang dikira sebagai darah ganjil, seperti yang digelar Bombay Type Blood, duffy-negative blood. Mereka yang memiliki jenis darah yang ganjil ini tidak mempunyai sebarang masalah MELAINKAN apabila mereka memerlukan pemindahan darah ke atas diri mereka, oleh kerana kesukaran mendapatkan jenis darah yang sama.

Menderma darah adalah suatu amalan yang baik. Ianya terangkum di dalam tuntutan untuk berbuat baik dan berbuat sesuatu yang memberi manfaat kepada orang lain. Timbul isu mengenai hukum menderma darah kepada yang bukan Islam atau menerima darah dari yang bukan Islam.Kita dituntut untuk memelihara jiwa seperti firman Allah di dalam Surah Al-Maidah:32-

...bahawasanya sesiapa yang membunuh seorang manusia dengan tiada alasan yang membolehkan membunuh orang itu, atau (kerana) melakukan kerosakan di muka bumi, maka seolah-olah dia telah membunuh manusia semuanya; dan sesiapa yang menjaga keselamatan hidup seorang manusia, maka seolah-olah dia telah menjaga keselamatan hidup manusia semuanya

Dalam isu derma organ (mungkin boleh dijadikan panduan bagi kes derma darah), Sheikh Yusuf Qardhawi berpendapat bahawa hukumnya harus, walaupun kepada yang bukan Islam, antara alasan beliau ialah terjadinya perpindahan organ itu dengan tujuan memelihara nyawa manusia. Beliau juga berpendapat bahawa organ dan juga darah tidak sepatutnya dinisbahkan dengan agama pemiliknya dan hujahnya lagi bahawa sekalian makhluk di langit dan dibumi bertasbih mensucikan Allah, dan ini termasuklah anggota badan manusia (walaupun tuan punya badan tidak begitu. Wallahua'lam

Hadith Nabi yang mafhumnya "Apabila mati seorang anak Adam itu, terputuslah darinya sekalian perkara melainkan tiga. Yang Pertama Sedekah Jariah (yang manfaatnya tidak putus), Ilmu yang bermanfaat dan anak yang soleh yang mendoakannya"

14 kali derma darah ^_^
Sekadar renungan, jika kita tidak mampu dermakan wang ringgit bagi mereka yang kurang bernasib baik, mungkin kita boleh dermakan darah kepada mereka yang tidak bernasib baik dan memerlukan.

A Deputy Registrar of the Federal Court is transferred to the Court of Appeal. He is my room mate, my boss and my mentor. For 6 months we were sharing room. I learned a lot from him, on the legal side and much more about life.

I cant consider him as friend since I have so much respect for him. I remember when a magistrate was found guilty on bribery, in sympathetic tune, he said that he is one of our fellow brothers. So much respect he shows for peer in career. 

This coming week, no more laughing and discussion, worst, no more lesson from him. To my mentor, Tuan Ahmad Faizadh bin Yahaya, I salute you.

The Second of the two (ثاني الاثنين)

THE SECOND OF THE TWO

He is among the few, given the honour of having direct reference in the Holy Book.

Company of the Prophet during Hijrah to Madinatun Nabi

His faith is heavier, if weighed against the faith of the rest of the faithfuls.

He donates all of his wealth for charity

And when asked what does he leave behind for his family, he said I leave them with Allah and His Messenger

He is the first to testify the truthfulness of Isra' and Mikraj

He was the first to cry when the verse stating Ad-din is complete was revealed

As he knows. it is the sign that his beloved friend will leave

Upon the demise of the Prophet, he who speaks that his friend is a mere prophet, who will leave them like other prophets.

He is "the truthful"


 Surah At-Taubah: 40
If ye help not (The Prophet), (it is no matter): for Allah did indeed help him, when the Unbelievers drove him out:when he is one of the two in the cave, and he said to his companion, "be sad not, for Allah is with us" then Allah sent down His peace upon him, and strengthened him with forces which ye saw not, and humbled to the depths the word of the Unbelievers. But the word of Allah is exalted to the heights: for Allah is Exalted in might, Wise.

Salam Maal Hijrah 1432


Demam

Dua kali pegi Kota Kinabalu, dua kali demam dan cirit birit. Mungkin tak serasi dengan udara di sana (walaupun seakan-akan serasi dengan seafood yg amat sedap). Tempat yang indah, orang yang baik-baik (tapi tak sanggup demam dan cirit birit setiap kali ke sana). Mungkin pada kali ketiga, Kota Kinabalu berlaku baiklah dengan saya, supaya dapat saya berjalan2 melihat indahnya alam ciptaan Tuhan.


Til then Kota Kinabalu
