Berpetualang ke Aceh: Membela syiar yang asal (BKA II)


Assalamualaikum para pembaca sekalian. Hari ini sudah masuk 1 Rabiulawal 1428 Hijrah, bulan Islam yang akan membawa kepada tarikh kelahiran junjungan besar kita Nabi Muhammad SAW 11 hari lagi. Maka timbul pula gerak untuk berkongsi gambar kulit hadapan buku terbaru saya yang akan datang, "Berpetualang ke Aceh: Membela syiar yang asal" atau BKA II.
Greeting dear readers. Today is 1 Rabiulawal 1428 Hijriah, the Islamic calendar month which includes the birthdate of the prophet Muhammad SAW 11 days from now. So came the urge to share the picture of the front cover of my coming novel, "Berpetualang ke Aceh: Membela syiar yang asal" (literally translated: "The trip to Aceh: Advocating the true faith) or BKA II.
Adapun buku ini saiznya sama dengan "Berpetualang ke Aceh: Mencari Diri dan Erti" atau BKA I, jumlah mukasurat pun sama iaitu 300 muka, campur 4 mukasurat kosong kerana jumlah mukasurat buku dijilid dalam gandaan 16 (set 4 kertas dilipat 2 lalu menjadi 16 mukasurat), dalam kes ini 16 x 19 = 304. Ia adalah kesinambungan cerita dalam buku I dan akan membawa pembaca pergi lebih jauh ke dalam dunia pengembaraan serta pemikiran Muhammad Al-Aminul Rasyid. Maka akan ada lebih banyak perkara yang melibatkan hal-hal pelik dan ghaib, juga pengajian ilmu Tasawuf.
The book is the same size as "Berpetualang ke Aceh: Mencari Diri dan Erti" (my first book, "The trip to Aceh: In search of self and meaning") or BKA I, so are the number of pages which is 300 plus 4 empty ones, because the number is a multiply of 16 (set of 4 pieces of paper folded in half to become 16 pages) in this case 16 x 19 = 304. It continues the story from book I and will bring readers further into the world of travelling and thoughts of Muhammad Al-Aminul Rasyid. So it will involve more weird and mysterious happenings, including studies in Tasawuf (Islamic spirituality).
Untuk pengetahuan, buku ini baru siap diedit dan layout menggunakan perisian Pagemaker kemudian InDesign pada Khamis 15 Mac 2007 sejurus sebelum masuk Subuh. Tapi saya perlu melakukan satu lagi proses editing untuk memantapkan isi... Kulit buku pun belum 100 peratus siap kerana belum mendapat ilham untuk pantun yang perlu diletakkan di belakang.
For information, the editting and layout for the book using the softwares Pagemaker then InDesign was completed on Thursday 15 Mac 2007 just before Subuh (the Islamic early morning prayers). But I must do another layer of editting to strenghten the contents... The cover is also not 100 per cent completed as the inspiration for the poem at the back has not arrived.
Setelah siap proses editting pada hari Khamis, gerak hati saya menyuruh supaya menunggu bulan Safar tamat. Hari ini sudah masuk bulan Rabiulawal, maka proses seterusnya akan disambung hari ini dan sebab itulah saya mendapat gerak untuk meletakkan gambar kulit buku di sini dan berkongsi perkembangan terbaru BKA II dengan para pembaca sekalian.
After completing the editting on Thursday, my heart tells me to wait until the month of Safar is completed (the previous Islamic month). Today, Rabiulawal has entered, and so the following process will be continued today and that's why I got the urge to put the picture of the book's cover here and share the latest development of BKA II with dear readers.
Apapun, doakan segalanya berjalan lancar OK... Jika tiada aral melintang, insyaallah buku ini akan berada di pasaran bulan May. Baiklah, saya perlu menyambung kerja ya... Teruskan membaca! :]
Whatever, please pray everything will turn out smoothly OK... If there's no interference, God willing, the book will be in the market in May. Well, let me continue with work ya... Go on reading! :]

Wasalam.
Hmm... Are you the same Anne who has been posting comments on my Malay blogspot Catatan Si Merah Silu, under the artikel Samudera-Pasai bumi para wali bahagian III?
Anyway the pix is of an abandoned mosque/surau somewhere near the banks of Sungai Perak.
I've posted it earlier with the accompanying story in this blog... You have to look for it if you want to know more. Cheers.

p/s: Too bad, I couldn't go to Aceh yet. The instruction I receive is to complete all 3 books under "Berpetualang ke Aceh", marry a certain person then bring her back to makam Malikus Salih.
I mean logically I can go now as the door is open and I can find the expense but the time is not right... So there...
Oh... Send my regards to people over there yah, say that a Samudera-Pasai relative from the blood of Nakhoda Hitam who became Laksamana (actually Raja Laksamana) in Perak kirim salam :]
