Heureux mariage Robin et Starfire!

25 juin 2012


You know that anxious feeling we get when we're about to face our first day? The first day at school (both as a student and teacher xp), our first interview for a scolarship/ job, the first day at work etc?

I don't know about you..But as for me.. somehow, The Utmost Awesome-est, The Oft-Knowing had always sent someone to help me calm the nerves..making the first day bear-able..and less terrifying. Few years ago, in 2009 to be exact I posted a note, a wedding speech for my everdearest sister, Diana Prince ( a.k.a WOnder Woman) in the note I mentioned about a certain good friend who took a train all whe way from Planet Tamaran to the other end of the railway (Gotham City). She spent the night at my house which at that time were filled with people she has never met before..
Doing all these in the name Yg Maha Penyayang, to help a friend in need.
Helping my family, prepare for my sister's wedding. (yup, it wasn't even My wedding!)
I really didn't expect her to come. And she never really told me. But she just called telling me she'd be boarding the train.
She just did it.

Now we're in July 2012. This friend of mine, Starfire, got hitched on the 9th of June, last month. It was such an event. We're all are happy for her. Congratulations Starfire & Robin. ;-).

To Starfire, t'as enfin trouvée ton âme soeur et j'espère que tu garderas ton sourire jusqu'à le dernier second de ta vie malgré toutes les obstacles que vous affrontiez en tant qu'un couple. Nobody said that married life est du gateaux. Just like any other relationship, it needs effort and sacrifice. God didn't exactly say that once we've completed one part of our deen, life would be easy. But He did remind us, that as long as we want Him near, He'll get us through it all, insyaAllah.

To Robin, you are one lucky dude. And Im pretty sure you know this, thats why you it didn't take you that long to finally make the decision, kan? She's the one, and you took that vow to be with her for as long as you both shall live.

Ma chere Starfire,
Je n'oublierai jamais le premier jour qu'on s'est croisées. It was during our interview for the superhuman course at the Legion Academy. Malgre my snobbish don't-look-or-talk-to-me attitude, Starfire came around and talked to me. There were about 13 of us (or so) But she was the only one to do so.
Well, God does work in mysterious ways.She called me me as I forgot to sign something.
So thats when it all started. (Yup, Starfire was the angel He sent me for the interview, my very first day of the many years to come as I travel down the path as an superhero.)
We exchanged our numbers, and our dads even sort of promised each other to " See you at Happy Harbor! "
- both, pretty confident that their girls nailed the interview. lol.

We kept in touch asking if any of us heard any news about the outcome.
In the whole Universe, they were only looking for 15 of us. We heard rumors that 9 were already chosen from Steel City. And I thought chances were pretty slim for me at that time.
But alhamdulillah, we both got the scolarship.
We weren't really bestfriends or anything. She had her circle of friends, and I had mine. But she had always been there when I needed her.
She would share the warmth of her comforter during winter in Thar (as I only had my fleece blanket). She helped me, offered me advices when I needed her point of view.

Je me souviens toujours de deux choses en particulier:
 1. The first day I decided to put on the headscarf for real. It was new year in 2009, there was a demonstration in the streets of Cosmos for Syraq. I made the decision a few days earlier. But I chose that day to wear it. Come to think of it, I don't know why I chose to call Starfire. Intuation maybe. She was the first to know, and she came bringing an extra headscarf for me, and she helped me with it…;) 

2. The talk we had. At that time,our legion vient d'être séparée en deux.
I still remember this particular phrase. "Ye, memang Huntress rapat dgn kak ****** tap Huntress jgn lupe kak ***** pun ade hak ats Huntress" The whole point wasn't solely about building relationship with them, one ukhti to another.
 But its about having a better relationship with Our Creator through all these other relationship. After that talk, I sent a mail to both of them. (kak ***** and kak *****, if ure reading this, je suis sure que vous savez je parle de vous deux =p)
And alhamdulillah, the relationships with kak ****** got better while still being in touch with kak *****.
and owh, Starfire were one of the few who actually 'layan' my obsession over, my dad, Batman. at the academy she gave me this little Batman with Big Head which I placed on my locker. Then there were that Batman toothbrush. and also a sort of Pocket Batman. (Its like Polly pocket, except it comes in a form of Batman's head, and upon opening, theres a Batcave, complete with a Batmobile. =D
 and of course its also thanks to Starfire that I didn't have to face my kursus kahwin alone.
She asked me accompany her last year.
I think it started as a favor for her, but end up being a favor for me as well.
 Yelah, having to attend 2 days course with people you never met! Terrifying kot! To people like me at least.

So, if you ask me about Starfire…These are the wonderful things I would always remember about her. ma tres chere Starfire,
 He sent you, at thé interview.
The first time we took our flight for our first summer holiday, you taught and showed me how to perform prayers in public. We were at CDG.
( At the time, I still hadn't wore my hijab, so I had to wear my extra polo shirt to cover my head. Then again I used the in flight blanket during the journey)
( I looked silly and we had a good laugh, but you didn't make fun of me, you assured me that it was okay to do un-ordinary things in the name of the Almighty)
Then you were there when I first put on the tudung. Heck, Starfi yg tolong pakaikan Huntress tudung tu! ;-)
And that talk about relationships with our ukhti(s).. All those gifts (Batman, and of course Mathurat- didnt at that time it would become the zikr I need most to get through the days)
And of course for ajak-ing me to come with you for the kursus kahwin =D

Tu as été une très bonne amie pour moi, et tu le serais toujours dans mon mémoire.;).

 To Uncle and Auntie, the Queen and King of Planet Tamaran, It was such a pleasure to get to know your daughter and having her as friend. You've raised her well, she's truly such a wonderful person. And Im pretty sure that Robin is a good son-in-law, and suami buat anak tersayang..Sbb Allah dah kate kan..Lelaki-lelaki baik utk perempuan-peremouan yg baik:)

 I never regretted knowing Starfire.

But one thing I do regret even until now is the fact that I wasn't there for her on her wedding day the way she was on my sister's wedding day. And I still feel the guilt until today. The inability to turn back time makes me feel so helpless. She's finally married. There would never be that last moment, last pillow talk between us bachelorettes before she becme the wife of someone.
Starfire, Je suis sincèrement désolée que je n'étais pas la, a la veille de ton mariage. J'aurais pu venir, j'aurais pu être avec toi, on aurait pu avoir une dernière nuit blanche entre filles, mais j'ai tout gache. Ive had my time and I chose otherwise. So for all the others out there… if you have a friend, a good friend, or any loved ones and you only had that one chance to spend with them before your live takes different turn of events…
Take it. Never think twice. Cause there might not be the 2nd time around.

But we all know, we all plan and He laughs. Theres always a reason for something.
For me its a lesson learnt, and I hope it will help others to not repeat the same mistake as mine. Living with regrets is no way to live. Its like you'd want to forget everything and try to be better the next time but somehow theres always that little voice inside you're head reminding you of the past. Things you could've done differently, but you didn't.

Hmm, my only hope right right now, is if ever Starfire and I are blessed with daughters.. I hope they'll become good friends, and my daughter could be there for her daughter the way I never did. I know its a bit far fetched..
but one can hope.

Well, thats all for know.

 Selamat pengantin baru Mohd Starfire and Nur Robin (hehe).

Semoga masjid yg dibina, dirahmati, dilindungi dan di- Guide Ar-Rasheed jusqu'à la fin du temps. Bonne Chance! ;)


bisous tout doux,


Mine is 4: 34 (ITS AWESOME to be a Girl!) , what about you?

7 janvier 2012

Salam ( Peace be upon you ) & bonjour, ;-)

Bismillahirrahmanirrahim, In the name of Allah, The Most Gracious, The Most Merciful

Quick question, do you have a favourite quote? Or a life principles, or a philosophy you live by?
The way Timon & Pumba hold on to " Hakuna Ma Ta Ta ", in ways that Rancho a.k.a P. Wangdu hangs on to " All is well " ?

What about the verses from the Quran? Our love letters from The Creator Himself to his creations. Do you have any favourite ayah from The Book ?

I have one form An- Nisa' ( Women ), verse 34 ;

" Laki-laki (suami) itu pelindung bagi perempuan (isteri) kerana Allah telah melebihkan sebagian mereka (laki--laki) atas sebagian yang lain (perempuan), dan karena mereka (lelaki) telah memberikan nafkah dan hartanya. Maka perempuan-perempuan yang saleh, adalah mereka yang taat (kepada Allah) dan menjaga diri ketika (suaminya) tidak ada, karena Allah telah menjaga (mereka).
Perempuan-perempuan yang kamu khawatirkan akan nusyuz, hendaklah kamu;
- beri nasihat kepada mereka,
- tinggalkanlah mereka di tempat tidur,
- dan (kalau perlu) pukullah mereka.
Tetapi jika mereka menaatimu, maka

"Men are (meant to be righteous and kind) guardians of women because God has favored some more than others and because they (i.e. men) spend out of their wealth. (In their turn) righteous women are (meant to be) devoted and to guard what God has (willed to be) guarded even though out of sight (of the husband).
As for those (women) on whose part you fear ill-will and nasty conduct,
admonish them (first),
(next) leave them alone in beds
(and last) beat or separate them (from you).
But if they obey you,
then seek nothing against them.
Behold, God is most High and Great.

- Translation by Dr. Ahmad Shafaat

Isn't it obvious how much He loves us (women). ;-), and men, are you not scared off His threat reminding you, no matter how strong, how 'awesome', how superior you may think of yourself over others, verily HE, is Most High, Most Great. In short - HE WOULD ALWAYS BE STRONGER, AWESOME-ER and definitely THE GREATEST.

I like the fact that HE has pass the reponsibility to look after women, to guard them to men. But should a man fail to do so there has always been Al- Muhaimin. THE Protector of All Protectors.

That is how beautiful this deen is, how Islam protects the women and respects men. Even in obeying the parents our mother comes before our father.
A man came to the Prophet and said, ‘O Messenger of God! Who among the people is the most worthy of my good companionship? The Prophet said: Your mother. The man said, ‘Then who?' The Prophet said: Then your mother. The man further asked, ‘Then who?' The Prophet said: Then your mother. The man asked again, ‘Then who?' The Prophet said: Then your father. (Bukhari, Muslim).

Even after marriage our mother-in-laws have the same right on us, just as our mother.

Kewajipan anak lelaki, pertama kepada Allah, kedua rasul, ketiga emak dan emak mentua, keem pat bapa dan bapa mentua dan kelima baru isteri. Isteri kena faham, kalau dia sayang dan melebihkan ibu bapa, itu memang wajar.
"Sebaliknya anak perempuan, yang pertama Allah, kedua rasul dan ketiga suami... Jalan pintas ke syurga bagi anak-anak selain Allah adalah emak dan ayahnya.

See how special women are in Islam. And how Just He is that in exchange, after marriage, for woman, her spouse comes before her parents, but only because God has entrusted the responsibility on men to regard the in laws just as his own family. God is too Awesome for words.. He's got our back.

But again, if your wife has been good to you, helping you, being your other half, completing you..

It is generally known that whatever you give a woman, she will make it better;
Give her a house, she'll give you a home.
Give her groceries, she'll give you a meal.
Give her a smile, she'll give you her heart.

So, if you you fail to love women in ways He commands you to and how The Prophet teaches us to (and vice versa of course),
Then be sure, The Almighty will judge you Justly. As what we deserve, for He is The All-Seeing, All Knowing.

A woman came out of a mans rib.
Not from his feet to be walked on,
not from his head to be superior over,
but from his side to be his equal.
Under the arm to be protected,
and next to the heart to be loved..


-dedicated to all women, daughter,mothers and wives.

New Year's inspiration to all of us.. ;-)

1 janvier 2012

It all starts with the smallest step..Bismillahirahminirrahim..n our niat (intentions). ;-)

InsyaAllah, Ar Rasheed will guide us through it all.

Reflect on this: Sometimes we lose hope in turning to God and asking for His help because we feel like we have done too much wrong. And yet think of a child who has just angered his mother and immediately after trips and falls on the stairs. Even if that child had just angered his mother to tears, the moment he falls and cries for help, she runs to him. This is human mercy. And God is infinitely more merciful than a mother is to her child. So, do you think--no matter what you've done--when you're falling and cry out to the *most* merciful...He wouldn't come save you?
-Yasmen Mogahed

If you trip, dont have to wait for another New Year's Eve to start again. Each breath that we take is Allah giving us another chance to be better. So don't wait, cause no one knows when we'll be taking our last breath..

Its 2012

In the name of God, The Most Gracious Most Merciful,

Its the first day of 2012, lets reflect on this:

Cerite tentang selai python bername Jenny.

13 décembre 2011

Salam wbt & salam sejahtera.

Ini merupekan sebuah kisah benar yg telah diceritakan kpdku via kakakku yg mendegr cerita ini dari salah seorang sahabat akrabnya, Kak Ainul Huda.

Anyway, ceritanye mengenai seorg kenalan yg membele selai Python ataupun lebih mesre dgn name melayu nye, ular sawa sbg haiwan peliharaan.

Encik David (bukan name sebenar) telah membele, membelai dan menjage Jenny (juga bukan name sebenar) dgn penuh kasih syg ...ibarat manatang minyak yg penuh sejak si Jenny kontot dan kenit lagi. Makan minum dijage..malah Jenny turut tidur bersame David tatkala malam menjelang (Yes, manusie, sekatil dgn ular)

Jenny pun membesar dgn sihat dan seperti ular yg normal. (Omg, gile cuak type ular bebyk kali) ok anyway,

satu hari, si Jenny yg telah meningkat remaja (ikut lifetime Python ok), enggan utk makan...bukan sahaja polar pemakanannya telah berubah..malah polar tidurnye juga tidakla seperti selalu. Jenny si Python yg selalunye tidur berlingkar persis selai ular kini tidur dgn cara melunjurkan badannya...
David semakin risau dan kasihankan Jenny kesygn kerana tingkahlakunya yg seperti sakit gtu.
Hal ini telah berlalu bagi beberapa ketika sehinggalah David mengambil keputusan utk membawe Jenny menemui pakar perubatan (a.k.a Veterinarian lah).

Setelah menjelaskan keadaan Jenny kepada Doktor tersebut. Ha, nk tawu Doktor tu kate ape? Ikutilah perbualannye..:

Doctor : Hmm..kes ini agak serious..dan saya rasa moleklah jike En. David tinggalkan Jenny di sini.

David : (Dgn penuh kerisauan)..Lame ke dokter sy kene tinggalkan die? Kenape dgn die?

Doctor : Sebenarnye si Jenny nie... bukanlah saket secare sengaje..cume die sdg mempersiapkan dirinye..

David : (Eh..my baby dah nak mati ke..??...)

Doctor : ...Sebenarnye..die sdg mempersiapkan dirinye utk mnjdkan En. David sbg mangsanye. Perilaku nya yg tidak mkn adalah kerana die sedang mempersiapkan dirinya, menahan perut, ibarat puasa..kerana ingin menyimpan perut bg menelan Encik..Dan apabila dia tidur dlm keadaan melunjur adalah kerana...die sdang mengukur dan membudget kepanjangan badannya..Jike die mampu menelan habis Encik David.

haaaaa...sentap kan!?! My first reaction to this story was....Kurang aja punye ular! Like literally..statement ini telah disuarekan buat beberape kali..utk seberape ketike..

I was like mcm..OMG ular ni..takde budi bahase ke..Org tu da jage kau bagai..Jahat taw sesenyap buat plan.

I was quite angry at this Jenny for quite sometime until I manage to rationalize things..

An ustaz once reminded my friends and I about the definition of zalim... Zalim is when when we place something bukan pada tempatnya...Meletakkan sesuatu bukan pada tempatnye. ( It can mean alot of course)
But in this context I guess.. All of this wouldnt happen if David tak decide utk membele Jenny di selai tempat yg bukan merupekan habitat semulajadinye.. Theres a reason why snakes never made it to te domestic pets category.. it belongs to the wild...Living with other wild animals..Singing circles of life. or if die tak teri nyanyi lagi english they would probably nyanyik lagu Bangau oh Bangau.
Anyway, my point is..Snakes were never meant to live with us..
So in Jenny's defense...its not really her fault..Its just how she is.. Shes probably not proud of it.. But. tula..She is how she is la.
Edward Cullen pn paling2 vegetarian he can get pon lahap mountain lions and bears juge kan.

But yes..I do pity David (seb baekla kau angkut si Jenny tu pegi Kelinik on time abang oi)..I pity him in a sense that..yela si Jenny nie kalau ye pn..kasik warning la dl..kau sesenyap buat plan nk telan si David yg dah besarkan kau cm ank sendiri ..ape cer..

But..yes I know..David juge bukanlah Harry Potter mahupun Voldemort yg mampu berbahasa Parseltongue. Siape tahu kan..tah2..mmg si Jenny cube beberape kali untuk memberitahu si David..tapi si David nie buat bodo je..yelah dah mamat tu x faham.

So anyway, I guess my conclusion is...jgnlah menzalimi diri, menzalimi makhluk Allah yg laen atau ape sahaje lah dgn meletakkan sesuatu bukan pade tempat yg sepatutnye..dan melawan fitrah hidup. If it was never eant to be..It will never be. And if we try to go against what He has ordained for us..
Bad things will happen eventually..
Sesungguhnye..Dielah yg Maha Bijaksana and Maha Mengetahui atas segale sesuatu.


Selamat beramal~

Why do people have to leave each other?

1 décembre 2011

Part I

When I was 17 years old, I had a dream. I dreamt that I was sitting inside a masjid and a little girl walked up to ask me a question. She asked me: “Why do people have to leave each other?” The question was a personal one, but it seemed clear to me why the question was chosen for me.
I was one to get attached.
Ever since I was a child, this temperament was clear. While other children in preschool could easily recover once their parents left, I could not. My tears, once set in motion, did not stop easily. As I grew up, I learned to become attached to everything around me. From the time I was in first grade, I needed a best friend. As I got older, any fall-out with a friend shattered me. I couldn’t let go of anything. People, places, events, photographs, moments—even outcomes became objects of strong attachment. If things didn’t work out the way I wanted or imagined they should, I was devastated. And disappointment for me wasn’t an ordinary emotion. It was catastrophic. Once let down, I never fully recovered. I could never forget, and the break never mended. Like a glass vase that you place on the edge of a table, once broken, the pieces never quite fit again.
But the problem wasn’t with the vase. Or even that the vases kept breaking. The problem was that I kept putting them on the edge of tables. Through my attachments, I was dependent on my relationships to fulfill my needs. I allowed those relationships to define my happiness or my sadness, my fulfillment or my emptiness, my security, and even my self-worth. And so, like the vase placed where it will inevitably fall, through those dependencies I set myself up for disappointment. I set myself up to be broken. And that’s exactly what I found: one disappointment, one break after another.
But the people who broke me were not to blame any more than gravity can be blamed for breaking the vase. We can’t blame the laws of physics when a twig snaps because we leaned on it for support. The twig was never created to carry us.
Our weight was only meant to be carried by God. We are told in the Quran: “…whoever rejects evil and believes in God hath grasped the most trustworthy hand-hold, that never breaks. And God hears and knows all things.” (Qur’an 2: 256)
There is a crucial lesson in this verse: that there is only one handhold that never breaks. There is only one place where we can lay our dependencies. There is only one relationship that should define our self-worth and only one source from which to seek our ultimate happiness, fulfillment, and security. That place is God.
But this world is all about seeking those things everywhere else. Some of us seek it in our careers, some seek it in wealth, some in status. Some, like me, seek it in our relationships. In her book, Eat, Pray, Love, Elizabeth Gilbert describes her own quest for happiness. She describes moving in and out of relationships, and even traveling the globe in search of this fulfillment. She seeks that fulfillment—unsuccessfully—in her relationships, in meditation, even in food.
And that’s exactly where I spent much of my own life: seeking a way to fill my inner void. So it was no wonder that the little girl in my dream asked me this question. It was a question about loss, about disappointment. It was a question about being let down. A question about seeking something and coming back empty handed. It was about what happens when you try to dig in concrete with your bare hands: not only do you come back with nothing—you break your fingers in the process. And I learned this not by reading it, not by hearing it from a wise sage. I learned it by trying it again, and again, and again.
And so, the little girl’s question was essentially my own question…being asked to myself.
Ultimately, the question was about the nature of the dunya as a place of fleeting moments and temporary attachments. As a place where people are with you today, and leave or die tomorrow. But this reality hurts our very being because it goes against our nature. We, as humans, are made to seek, love, and strive for what is perfect and what is permanent. We are made to seek what’s eternal. We seek this because we were not made for this life. Our first and true home was Paradise: a land that is both perfect and eternal. So the yearning for that type of life is a part of our being. The problem is that we try to find that here. And so we create ageless creams and cosmetic surgery in a desperate attempt to hold on—in an attempt to mold this world into what it is not, and will never be.
And that’s why if we live in dunya with our hearts, it breaks us. That’s why this dunya hurts. It is because the definition ofdunya, as something temporary and imperfect, goes against everything we are made to yearn for. Allah put a yearning in us that can only be fulfilled by what is eternal and perfect. By trying to find fulfillment in what is fleeting, we are running after a hologram…a mirage. We are digging into concrete with our bare hands. Seeking to turn what is by its very nature temporary into something eternal is like trying to extract from fire, water. You just get burned. Only when we stop putting our hopes indunya, only when we stop trying to make the dunya into what it is not—and was never meant to be (jannah)—will this life finally stop breaking our hearts.

We must also realize that nothing happens without a purpose. Nothing. Not even broken hearts. Not even pain. That broken heart and that pain are lessons and signs for us. They are warnings that something is wrong. They are warnings that we need to make a change. Just like the pain of being burned is what warns us to remove our hand from the fire, emotional pain warns us that we need to make an internal change. That we need to detach. Pain is a form of forced detachment. Like the loved one who hurts you again and again and again, the more dunya hurts us, the more we inevitably detach from it. The more we inevitably stop loving it.
And pain is a pointer to our attachments. That which makes us cry, that which causes us most pain is where our false attachments lie. And it is those things which we are attached to as we should only be attached to Allah which become barriers on our path to God. But the pain itself is what makes the false attachment evident. The pain creates a condition in our life that we seek to change, and if there is anything about our condition that we don’t like, there is a divine formula to change it. God says: “Verily never will God change the condition of a people until they change what is within themselves.” (Qur’an, 13:11)
After years of falling into the same pattern of disappointments and heartbreak, I finally began to realize something profound. I had always thought that love of dunya meant being attached to material things. And I was not attached to material things. I was attached to people. I was attached to moments. I was attached to emotions. So I thought that the love of dunya just did not apply to me. What I didn’t realize was that people, moments, emotions are all a part of dunya. What I didn’t realize is that all the pain I had experienced in life was due to one thing, and one thing only: love of dunya.
As soon as I began to have that realization, a veil was lifted from my eyes. I started to see what my problem was. I was expecting this life to be what it is not, and was never meant to be: perfect. And being the idealist that I am, I was struggling with every cell in my body to make it so. It had to be perfect. And I would not stop until it was. I gave my blood, sweat, and tears to this endeavor: making the dunya into jannah. This meant expecting people around me to be perfect. Expecting my relationships to be perfect. Expecting so much from those around me and from this life. Expectations. Expectations. Expectations. And if there is one recipe for unhappiness it is that: expectations. But herein lay my fatal mistake. My mistake was not in having expectations; as humans, we should never lose hope. The problem was in *where* I was placing those expectations and that hope. At the end of the day, my hope and expectations were not being placed in God. My hope and expectations were in people, relationships, means. Ultimately, my hope was in this dunya rather than Allah.
And so I came to realize a very deep Truth. An ayah began to cross my mind. It was an ayah I had heard before, but for the first time I realized that it was actually describing me: “Those who rest not their hope on their meeting with Us, but are pleased and satisfied with the life of the present, and those who heed not Our Signs.” (Qur’an, 10:7)
By thinking that I can have everything here, my hope was not in my meeting with God. My hope was in dunya. But what does it mean to place your hope in dunya? How can this be avoided? It means when you have friends, don’t expect your friends to fill your emptiness. When you get married, don’t expect your spouse to fulfill your every need. When you’re an activist, don’t put your hope in the results. When you’re in trouble don’t depend on yourself. Don’t depend on people. Depend on God.
Seek the help of people—but realize that it is not the people (or even your own self) that can save you. Only Allah can do these things. The people are only tools, a means used by God. But they are not the source of help, aid, or salvation of any kind. Only God is. The people cannot even create the wing of a fly (22:73). And so, even while you interact with people externally, turn your heart towards God. Face Him alone, as Prophet Ibrahim (as) said so beautifully: “For me, I have set my face, firmly and truly, towards Him Who created the heavens and the earth, and never shall I give partners to Allah.” (Qur’an,6:79)
But how does Prophet Ibrahim (as) describe his journey to that point? He studies the moon, the sun and the stars and realizes that they are not perfect. They set.
They let us down.
So Prophet Ibrahim (as) was thereby led to face Allah alone. Like him, we need to put our full hope, trust, and dependency on God. And God alone. And if we do that, we will learn what it means to finally find peace and stability of heart. Only then will the roller coaster that once defined our lives finally come to an end. That is because if our inner state is dependent on something that is by definition inconstant, that inner state will also be inconstant. If our inner state is dependent on something changing and temporary, that inner state will be in a constant state of instability, agitation, and unrest. This means that one moment we’re happy, but as soon as that which our happiness depended upon changes, our happiness also changes. And we become sad. We remain always swinging from one extreme to another and not realizing why.
We experience this emotional roller coaster because we can never find stability and lasting peace until our attachment and dependency is on what is stable and lasting. How can we hope to find constancy if what we hold on to is inconstant and perishing? In the statement of Abu Bakr is a deep illustration of this truth. After the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ died, the people went into shock and could not handle the news. But although no one loved the Prophet ﷺ like Abu Bakr, Abu Bakr understood well the only place where one’s dependency should lie. He said: “If you worshipped Muhammad, know that Muhammad is dead. But if you worshipped Allah, know that Allah never dies.”
To attain that state, don’t let your source of fulfillment be anything other than your relationship with God. Don’t let your definition of success, failure, or self-worth be anything other than your position with Him (Qur’an, 49:13). And if you do this, you become unbreakable, because your handhold is unbreakable. You become unconquerable, because your supporter can never be conquered. And you will never become empty, because your source of fulfillment is unending and never diminishes.
Looking back at the dream I had when I was 17, I wonder if that little girl was me. I wonder this because the answer I gave her was a lesson I would need to spend the next painful years of my life learning. My answer to her question of why people have to leave each other was: “because this life isn’t perfect; for if it was, what would the next be called?”

Salam (May peace be upon you),


Ever got stuck in a traffic jam or as the french call it "embouteillage"- just love the word. Anyhow, ever got stuck in a traffic and;

- laugh at all the other people stuck there with you?

- curse or make fun of the ones using the emergency lane for their own selfish benefit. (Especially only to get arrested by the policemen waiting a few meters ahead) Ha Ha Ha!

- feel sorry for those driving those kerete mewah seperti jaguar, lamborgini, ferarri, BMW, a Bugatti Veyron maybe dan sebagainye, kerane walau bagaimane awesome pun kerete mereke..ia tetap tak boleh terbang to avoid the traffic.

[Come to think of it, having one of those flying horses yg cam Navi Avatar naek tu seems like a more appealing choice of transport. Awesome nye!] And tak paya bayar insuran and roadtax! Wohoo~

Anyway, I was just thinking, thats one of the things I like about Him. The fact that He overlooks wealth, physical appearance and looks solely into our heart before passing any judgements.

Kinda like cars and traffic. Just because a person drives an Aston Martin, and another person drives some ancient Nissan or Datsun...We all have to abide by the road rules, by the traffic lights etc. Sure the roadtax we pay may differ based on the car we're driving. But in the end, if the traffic light is red, you still have to stop, and even if ure using the fastlane (Smartag/ Touch 'n Go) you still have to pay. And when you find yourself in the midst of a traffic jam. You're stuck..just like the others.

And that is what so beautiful about the Creator Himself and The Deen He entrust us with.

The fact that all that matters is a beautiful and pure Heart.
Jikalau baik dan suci dlmnye...nescaye akan terselah lah keindahannya diluar,insyAllah.

To be able to love us for all that we are...and to know us inside out, the good the bad...Especially the good deeds we do even when others perceive it badly. But He knows we never intend to hurt anyone, that, that one mistake we did, we did it with good intentions..He knows it all for He is The All Knowing.

50:16- And We have already created man and know what his soul whispers to him, and We are closer to him than [his] jugular vein.

God is so awesome, kan? ;D

In the end we will all be judge..befittingly, rightfully,fairly.

So despair not those who think this life is unfair, for the real life is not here, yet.
Maybe those evil person got away with the things they did, because no else found out bout it.
And maybe we know about it but its beyond our power to punish them.
Do not be angry..For He knows..and He'll know how to deal with them.
Everyone will finally get what they deserve.
Including us.
So be good people. Til next time.


Another article which has inspired me-

Its okay..if you're not perfect.

26 octobre 2011


To my future husband (whoever you maybe),

Assalammualaikum w.b.t.

I just wanted you to know that Im okay with you not being perfect.

I will learn to accept your flaws. I might not react calm and collected all the time..
But I assure you deep down and in time I'll be okay with it.

The truth is..I don't think I can afford you being perfect and all that I ever wished for.. as the verse goes

2:216 -...and it may be that you dislike a thing which is good for you and that you like a thing which is bad for you. Allah knows of that which we don't.

Most importantly, Im scared that if youre flawless,my heart would be all yours,
that I would come to love you more than myself..
that I would love you more than I love Him.
that I would think about you all the time to the extend of forgetting Him.
that my whole life would revolve around you..instead of Him.

So my other half..

With that being said, indirectly speaking, I also wish that you would come to understand, why I'll never be perfect, and the the reason why He created me to have all this flaw, and to err from time to time.
So that from all the hurt and heartache I might cause you.. through it all..
you will find it in your heart to love Him..more than you love me.
That you would devote yourself to Him..and not me..for Im just one of His creations..

I have to be imperfect..so you that you can put Him..above it all.


It doesnt mean that I want you to put up with my imperfections,
Teguran is always welcome..but please..I'd appreciate it if you'd do it in the utmost gentle way..
with hikmah. The way our beloved Prophet would, to his wives.. After all, he is the best example there is..right?
And I promise you, I would try my best..everyday to become a better person,
to live by what is required by our Deen.

And from you, my dear..if its not too much, I would like to ask you ..to do the same..
A similar promise..that you would try your best each day..to become a better caliph in this life..for Him..
and Only Him.

Therefore future husband...

its okay if you're not perfect..Cause I need you to be as you are.

And if I never had the chance to meet you I this lifetime...Its alright,

because He already knows that I would probably give you all of my heart,
leaving none for Him.

After All..He is Al-'Alim..The All Knowing ;-)

And its okay..cause life is too short anyway.
Its no place to spend forever with your loved ones.

" And what is life of this world except the enjoyment of delusion "(3:185)

Telah bersabda Rasulullah s.a.w., " Ya Allah anugerahilah kepada kami dua buah mata yang menangis kerana takut kepada-Mu, sebelum tidak ditemunya air mata."

(source : tidak diketahui)

minta maaf atas kekurangan, tiada hadis yang kukuh, TAPI, nak bawa readers semua berfikir.

ke mana air mata kita pergi selama ini?

gagal exam?
kalah tournament?
tak dapat permission parents?
masalah? masalah n masalah??!!

hanya satu je yang sepatutnya kita tangisi : menangis kerana takut kepada-Mu, Ya Allah. Kesali kekhilafan kita selama ini.

Wassalam :)

p/s : da 'menangis' hari ni?

as simple as...

peringatan / tazkirah of the day :

"Ketahuilah sesungguhnya kehidupan dunia itu hanyalah permainan & senda gurauan. Perhiasan dan saling berbangga di antara kamu serta berlumba-lumba dalam kekayaan dan anak keturunan seperti hujan yang tanam2annya mengangumkan para petani, kemudian tanaman itu menjadi kering dan kamu lihat warnanya kuning kemudian menjadi hancur.
Dan di akhirat nanti ada azab yang keras dan ampunan dari Allah serta keredhaanNya.
Dan kehidupan di dunia tidak lain, hanyalah kesenangan yang palsu"

bien dit!

wassalam :)

The Wayfarers

We are the wayfarers
We are the travelers
Wondering through
The planet earth
And see how great
The Creator is

We are the wayfarers
We are the travelers
Don’t you ever think
How strange it is
To treat everything
As tough as it’s ours
