I find it beautiful that in one of the recommended surahs to read every night is Surah Mulk.

The first verse started out with ‘tabaarak’ (تبارك) – Blessed be He (Allah). If we were to talk about barakah, which is often explained to us in terms of wealth. That is, a small amount of money, if there is barakah in it, then it will suffice. Obviously, barakah doesn’t just apply to wealth.

The first verse is a reminder that in whatever situation you are in your life, with all the chaos going around, remember that He is in control and He has it all planned out. 

And the second verse reminds you of your permanent condition: you will be tested.

And in just these two verses, it is as if a means to coax as well as to reaffirm your heart after all that it has been through.

This life is a test, He is in control, Believe.

Although you are chocked up with your own tears, believe.

Quran 67:1-2

تَبَٰرَكَ ٱلَّذِى بِيَدِهِ ٱلْمُلْكُ وَهُوَ عَلَىٰ كُلِّ شَىْءٍ قَدِيرٌ

Blessed is He in Whose Hand is the dominion, and He is Able to do all things.

ٱلَّذِى خَلَقَ ٱلْمَوْتَ وَٱلْحَيَوٰةَ لِيَبْلُوَكُمْ أَيُّكُمْ أَحْسَنُ عَمَلًا ۚ وَهُوَ ٱلْعَزِيزُ ٱلْغَفُورُ

Who has created death and life, that He may test you which of you is best in deed. And He is the All-Mighty, the Oft-Forgiving;


Loki the Cat

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

We took care of Loki for a few days way back in april 2016.

He is a mix breed.

When he was here, what bothered me was that he was just playing, venturing around and not sleeping. (I took care of a few cats before so if a cat is not sleeping after a long period of time, it is kinda odd)

So when he finally closed his eyes to rest in front of my prayer mat while I was reading the Quran, I lowered down my volume, not wanting to wake him up. (Although macam awat hang tidur sini)

And when I decided to stop reading, he opened his eyes, looked at me as if saying ‘why did you stop?’

He was brought into some stranger’s house, and perhaps it is the word of Allah that had made him to feel calm to be able to rest.

And soon after, he lay down on top of my prayer mat in front of me when I am reading the Quran, listening to this lullaby. (Dh ups sikit, dulu depan sejadah, now atas sejadah. Amboi Loki,😸)

May all of us find peace, tranquility and calmness in the words of Allah💗


Surah Yusof عليه السلام Part 2

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

We all have our ‘not-feeling-it’ days right.

It just happened that I just don’t feel like finishing the last 2 pages of what I was supposed to read that morning. And since I don’t have school that day, I was like I’ll read it later.

Maybe I was so tired that day that I even slept for almost 3 hours during the day. If I take into account that I don’t usually sleep during the day, this was like okay dude what is up with that?! So duh I don’t have time to do what I needed/wanted to do during the day so I pushed reading the Quran to night-time.

And so it happened that I had a major meltdown and tadaaaaaaaa: the second page of the 2 pages is Surah Yusof (عليه السلام) i.e. the surah recommended for you to read when you are sad.

الله أكبر الله أكبر الله أكبر ولله الحمد

May our not-feeling-it moments always bring us back to Him💗

عيد مبارك. كل عام وأنتم بخير


اصبري اصبري


Tired of walking.

And thinking.

‘Let me just sit down.’

Few minutes later.

‘Let me just open up the Quran App and see the ayat that the imam is reading.’


لا حول ولا قوة إلا بالله العلي العظيم


Surah Yusof عليه السلام

بسم الله الرمن الرحيم

Ustazah Suaidah mentioned something like if you ponder upon the verses of the Quran that you are reading, you will see that it will reflect your current situation.

I would backed that up anyday.

On another note, last monday, I was randomly feeling sad and was thinking what I should do about that feeling.

Was going through my head about the things that I heard from various talks and remembered that it was suggested that we read surah Yusof عليه السلام when we are sad.

But it was really late at night and I haven’t even finish my recitation for that day that I was suppose to read and its not like surah Yusof عليه السلام is a super short surah.

So anyhow I opened the mushaf to continue reading from where I last read. Jeng jeng jeng, next page is Surah Yusof عليه السلام.

Sometimes you are forced to practice what you learnt😅


Ah Sudah


Aku sedar aku dah tersasar jauh
Bile dia berkata
‘Aku nak semak bacaan kau’
Mate aku terus lekat pade mushaf di tangan

Terus hati aku berdebar
Aku fokus terus dekat bacaan aku
Dalam hati terdetik
‘Selama ni mane hati kau pergi?’

Dah jadi routine
A soul-less routine
Sehingga rase macam tak bermakne lagi
Macam dah seakan-akan bace buku biase

Sebab dia ade sanad
Tu yang buat aku tetibe serious segala
Terdetik ‘Habis tu selama ni mane kau letak Allah’
Terngiang-ngiang kate-kate Sayyidina Ikrimah رضي الله عنه
‘كلام ربي، كلام ربي’
‘Ini adalah kalam tuhanku, ini adalah kalam tuhanku’

Jadi mane hilangnye the soul of reading kalam tuhanku
Mane hilang the ta’zhim
Padahal nak ikutkan aku boleh faham jugak bahase arab
Tapi kenape tak try nk pay attention to the meaning

Then aku memang pakai mushaf yang ade translation
Dan aku boleh je bile bace the verses sambil tengok the meaning at the same time bile tk tahu the meaning
Tapi tak
Kadang mate aku tengok bende lain lagi ade

Ini jugak nikmat Allah yang Allah akan tanye aku kan?
ثم لتسئلن يومئذ عن النعيم
Aku boleh faham arab tapi bile bace aku tak internalize pun
What a waste

Ah sudah.

Bile nak berubah ni.

أَلَمْ يَأْنِ لِلَّذِينَ آمَنُوا أَنْ تَخْشَعَ قُلُوبُهُمْ لِذِكْرِ اللَّهِ

Has  the  time  not  come  for  those  who  have  believed  that  their  hearts  should  become humbly  submissive  at  the  remembrance  of Allah
