Once there was a little island country. The land of this country was the tiny island itself. The total money in circulation was 2 dollars as there were only two pieces of 1 dollar coins circulating around.

  1. There were 3 citizens living on this island country. “A” owned the land. “B” and “C” each owned 1 dollar.

 

  1. “B” decided to purchase the land from “A” for 1 dollar. So, “A” and “C” now each own 1 dollar while “B” owned a piece of land that is worth 1 dollar.The net asset of the country = 3 dollars.

 

  1. “C” thought that since there is only one piece of land in the country and land is non producible asset, its value must definitely go up. So, he borrowed 1 dollar from “A” and together with his own 1 dollar, he bought the land from “B” for 2 dollars.
    “A” has a loan to “C” of 1 dollar, so his net asset is 1 dollar.
    “B” sold his land and got 2 dollars, so his net asset is 2 dollars.
    “C” owned the piece of land worth 2 dollars but with his 1 dollar debt to “A”, his net asset is 1 dollar.
    The net asset of the country = 4 dollars.

Kilang Membuat Kain Kaabah Di Mekah

October 18th, 2013 No comments
Setiap tahun sehari sebelum hari raya Aidiladha, kain yang menutup Kaabah iaitu Kiswa akan ditukar Kain kiswa lama ini kemudian dibahagi-bahagikan kepada pemimpin negara Islam oleh kerajaan Saudi. Amalam memberikan kain kiswa kepada orang ramai ini sudah diamalkan sebelum Islam menapak di Mekah. Individu pertama yang menutup kaabah dengan kiswa ialah Raja Yemen, Tuba’a Al-Hemyari. Kaabah ditutup dengan kain sutera, jerami dan juga kain koptik mesir. Selama ratusan tahun kaabah akan dilitupi kain bagi menggantikan kain lama yang semakin lusuh.

 

Selepas Islam memerintah Makkah, Nabi Muhammad S.AWtidak menggantikan kain yang menutupi kaabah. Kain kiswa hanya digantikan oleh Rasulullah selepas seorang wanita secara tidak sengaja mengakibatkan kiswa yang sedia ada terbakar apabila membakar setanggi sebagai pewangi kaabah. Rasulullah menggunakan kain Yemen (kain sulaman kapas dan bebiri) bewarna putih untuk menutup kaabah. Selepas Rasulullah wafat para Kalifah menggantikan kain kiswa dengan kain koptik Mesir. Kain koptik mesir digunakan kerana ia disulam dari bulu bebiri yang lebih tahan lasak dan berkualiti tinggi. Ketika zaman Kalifah Umar, sebahagian kain Kiswa yang lama akan diberikan kepada mereka yang menunaikan haji sebagai kain untuk menutup kepala dari kepanasan mentari.
Ketika zaman Kalifah Mu’awya Bin Abi Sufyan, kain kiswa digantikan dua kalisetahun. Pada hari Ashura ianya ditutup dengan kain sutera manakala pada bulan Ramadan kiswa digantikan dengan kain koptik mesir. Kain kiswa baru dilemparkan di atas kiswa lama sehinggalah pemerintahan Kalifah Al Mandi dari Dinasti Abassiyahpada tahun 739 Masehi. Beliau khuatir berat kiswa yang terkumpul di atas kaabah akan mengakibatkan ianya runtuh.
