Hiking at Bukit Besi, Denai Alam, Cheras

It was my first time going to Denai Alam. We gathered and parked our cars in front of OCBC Cheras. Then, we just need to cross the road to reach Bukit Besi. It took about 1 and half hour (including waiting time for some of the team members) to finish our hiking. I love to see the beautiful view from the top. Bukit Besi is the easiest one for me so far. As we finished hiking at Bukit Besi, we rushed to Bukit Dinding, Wangsa Maju for our second hiking. Alhamdulillah, we succeeded in hiking two hills yesterday!

Synopsis of Hayy Ibn Yaqzhan

The story of Hayy Ibn Yaqzan takes place on an island uninhabited by human beings. There Hayy is found alone as an infant. Philosophers were of the opinion that he was born spontaneously when the mixture of elements reached an equilibrium state, making it possible for this mixture to receive a human soul from the divine world. Traditionalists believed that he was the son of a woman who chose to keep her marriage to her relative, Yaqzan, secret from her brother who ruled a neighbouring island and did not find any man qualified to marry his sister. After breastfeeding Hayy well, she put him in a box and threw it into the waters, which took him to the uninhabited island.
            A deer who had just lost her son and was still experiencing the feelings of motherhood heard Hayy's cries.

Thus, it is not surprising to find that the Qur’an uses a variety of thinking styles. Every style is carefully and effectively used to fulfill certain objectives.
