For the third time, the article that I wrote was published in Utusan Malaysia. Go to Utusan Online and search Muhammad Zaki Ramli. All of my articles are available there.
This time, I wrote about Ramadhan. The article that was initially entitled "Puasa Bukan kerana Kesihatan" was published with the title "Betulkan Niat Sebenar Puasa".
The idea of putting such title was to attract readers to read more on the article rather than just a cliché one like (I'm sorry to say) the one published. This is because, to my observation, people would skip such articles thinking that it contains thoughts like in any other articles.
I think the approach that I used to write the article was simple and easy to be understood and thus it needed a catchy title to put readers' eyes till the end of the article and eventually made them think.
As expected, the article was edited to suit the available space in the page. However I found that the main idea was still there anyway.
The idea to write that article was inspired after a weekly talk session during Ramadhan held in Yayasan Ilmuwan by Prof. Dr. Mohd Yusof Haji Othman of Institut Islam Hadhari. In his talk, he explained something more or less about what I shared in the article and I put some of my thoughts regarding the matter.
I hope many have benefited from the article and may Allah bless Prof. Yusof.
