He Listens

Amazing how I actually almost decide on something in particular on an issue, without having anyone to talk about, then I went to a talk that actually offered me another perspective on that issue.

Not that I don’t have anyone to talk about. I think I would consider myself very very picky on who I want to talk to. And apparently those people are usually busy (and may never reply).

I was literally going ‘Look! You feel like you don’t have anyone to talk to and Allah sends a scholar/teacher to address what you are dealing with.’

ونحن أقرب إليه من جبل الوريد


Peredaran Zaman

Pernah dengar makcik-makcik kutuk anak dara (kau) sekarang tak boleh masak?

And then there will be those ‘Ey dulu kite kecik-kecik dah pandai masak’

Kalau bukan pasal Tuhan dan ingin beradab, dah lame nak cakap ‘Ey cik dah tua-tua belum bace Quran lagi?’

Innaa lillaaah innaa lillaaah.

‘Kalau cik bersabar dgn saye mcm mane ustaz bersabar dgn cik, dh compom saye expert. Tapi cik dok tahu kutok je.’


In every difficulty, there is ease

When reflecting back the moment when my friend and my mum were supporting my weight to enable me to walk when I was sick a few days ago, I was reminded that “in every difficulty there is ease. In every difficulty there is ease.”

There will be people that will tolerate you regardless knowing or not knowing what you are going through.

And there will be those that will tolerate you only after knowing your circumstances, which is understandable. (We are dealing with people here aren’t we)

I am pretty blessed to have a few ones in the former group. I actually have someone that never knew what I am going through but I can tell you, besides mum, I can always count on her.



Repost : Truth



It came as a surprise to be honest. I fell sick in 2010, 2013 then suddenly Feb ’17 and now.

A lot of things ran through my head.

How Rasulullah صلى الله عليه وسلم faced the fever he faced nearing his death, how my Mumu faced and endured all those chemotherapies, how my mum still need to be a mum when she is sick.

And here I am being a vegetable, lying all day long with my throbbing head.

Being sick apparently allows you to see who you are.


Nadrah Naim’s Notes – Mu’min

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
الحمد لله رب العالمين
والصلاة والسلام على أشرف الأنبياء والمرسلين وعلى آله وصحبه أجمعين

This post is about the few sentences that the writer took note of from the talk given by Sheikh Musthofa Al Bugha on the 9th of September 2015 at Al-Muhajirin Mosque, Singapore.

The writer actually can’t remember who translated the speaker’s arabic speech though.

The writer wrote down the follwings in her notebook:
“Bersiar2 org mu’min:
– Bace Hadith
– Taat kepade Allah”

Basically means that the believers way of sightseeing/relaxation/enjoyment is by reading the text of hadith (the sayings of the Prophet Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم) and by doing acts of obedience to Allah عز وجل.

This came in as an ‘answer’ to the writer’s queries that she had in her head. When she heard it, it is as if everything made sense.

The writer was struggling to try not to indulge in things that are non-beneficial, syubhah or worst, haram. So she tells herself that as a human being, she needs some kind of relaxation. This is indeed true.

Yet the issue arises when the nafs (desire) part wants to do non-beneficial ‘fun’ things yet the other part was saying no. Inevitably, there will always be a constant war between those two. And apparently sometimes (most of the times), the writer indulges in those things because ‘it is not haram’ and because ‘human beings need to relax’.

The few sentences came in as a strong counterpoint to the nafs. Basically asking itself ‘Don’t you want to be a mu’minah? (Believer)’, ‘Don’t you want to raise your standard of living?’, ‘Do you really want to watch all those non-beneficial videos in the name of relaxation?’.

Obviously these things really takes time, practice, effort, strong support, strong willpower etc. Most importantly, the help and the taufeeq of Allah عز وجل.

And it needs to start somewhere. Start leaving the non-beneficial things. Slowly increasing the beneficial things. Plan out the day. Plan with a friend etc.

May Allah عز وجل help us to put in us a strong and sincere intention to slowly leave the laghaa. May Allah عز وجل make us busy with things that will benefit us both in this world and in the hereafter. May Allah عز وجل help us in striving to become true believers. May Allah عز وجل put barakah in our lives.

اللهم بارك لنا في رجب وشعبان وبلغنا رمضان

اللهم آمين

وصلى الله على سيدنا محمد وعلى آله وصحبه وسلم



Quran 76:22

إِنَّ هَٰذَا كَانَ لَكُمْ جَزَاءً وَكَانَ سَعْيُكُمْ مَشْكُورًا

[And  it  will  be  said],  “Indeed,  this  is  for  you  a  reward,  and  your  effort  has  been appreciated.”

Rasulullah صلى الله عليه وسلم :
“Let not any of you belittle or look down upon a good deed, even if it be that you smile in the face of your brother.”

Basically, the little things matter.💕

(Even when it is a small bad thing)
