Precinct 9 - Kampung Limau Manis

The clock strike 12 midnight.
Devils, ghouls, vampires, banshee, the damned are chained.

Who would dare encroach Kampung Limau Manis in the middle of the ink blotted night? It was pitch black, only the blinkering blinkers blinks like a vertigo firefly. Swirling left nor right into the endless darkness.
Only the Clan of CIOCC would. 14 goons armed with a few LED torches & a pinch artificial bravery. I'm taken aback by the willingness of all riders to face the unknown. No doubt the condemned are shackled, to dare & fuel the idiotic bravado of the sort shown, arguably persuading all of us to go, was a misplaced judgement.

Mindless Limau Manis hills crushed us to the edge.Some tried to ride it off with feigned finesse, but the mount gnarled & shocked the dead of night. Slumped on the tarmac with twitching limbs & sweat of blood, gone now the display of such swagger, face slouched forward to the agony of defeat.
Then again why are we afraid of the darkness during Ramadan?
Allah's Messenger (peace be upon him) said, "When the first night of Ramadan comes, the devils and the rebellious jinn are chained, the gates of Hell are locked and not one of them is opened; the gates of Paradise are opened and not one of them is locked; and a crier calls, 'You who desire what is good, come forward, and you who desire evil, refrain.' Some are freed from Hell by Allah, and that happens every night." (Tirmidzi).

If it is asked, how come we see many evil actions and sins committed in Ramadan, for if the devils are chained up that would not happen? The answer is that evil actions become less for those who observe the conditions and etiquette of fasting; or that the ones who are chained up are some of the devils – namely the rebellious ones – not all of them;or that what is meant is that evil is reduced in Ramadan, which is a proven fact. If evil happens at this time, it is still less than at other times. Even if all of them (the devils) are chained up, that does not necessarily mean that no evil or sin will happen, because there are other causes of that besides the devils, such as evil souls, bad habits and the devils among mankind. (Al-Fath).

Days will pass so quickly, as if they were mere moments. We welcomed Ramadan, then we bade it farewell, and only a short period of time passed and we are welcoming Ramadan again. So we should hasten to do good deeds in this month and strive to fill it with that which Allah is pleased with and with that which will help us on the Day when we meet Him.

Earlier, after the Tarawih prayers, we plotted our route to go forward & try to tame the Limau Manis peak. Coming from Pinggiran Putra, the incline was rather unmerciful. You'll crack if you're not prepared.
