Why don’t you like cakes?
Well, I just don’t…..
Isn’t that just a proof that God exists? We are just wired somehow. No matter how great the human race has accomplished thus far, we can’t deny the fact that there is an entity that have created and shaped us cells by cells to make us who we are today. It is just so amazing isn’t it?
I was at the second last row for taraawiih prayers and I was thinking to myself :
You know what. It was too hard for you to join the jemaah for the past few years.
You’ll be anywhere at the back for now.
But maybe, just maaybe, one day He’ll make it easy for you to be at the front row. Allahumma aamiin.
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💗
Doesn’t it make you sad or grief
To think about all the sweat that you went through
Because it was not done for Him?
Yeah like you spent all your university days for a degree
Congrats, you gained a piece of paper
That won’t be useful in the hereafter
But hey, it is not too late
Take the next moment to renew your intentions
And may your future years compensate
For all the past years that you lost your sense of direction
If you just live to live
Even the animals live to live
But even they live for a purpose
None other than to serve Him
سَبَّحَ لِلَّهِ مَا فِي السَّمَاوَاتِ وَمَا فِي الْأَرْضِ ۖ وَهُوَ الْعَزِيزُ الْحَكِيمُ
Whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth exalts Allah, and He is the Exalted in Might, the Wise. (51:9)
Take a pen and a piece of paper
If you can’t then close your eyes
What do want in this life?
If I ask you to list at least five
What will if be?
I can assure you marrying that person will not be in it
You want peace
His forgiveness and His redha
To be able to see Him and His beloved صلى الله عليه وسلم
To be able to practice His religion and his sunnah
To be able to enter Jannah together with your parents without hisab
Yes its gonna hurt
But now look
Its the reason now you go to Him saying
On my left
She just pulled out her praying beads
Later on, at my 2 o’clock direction
The cute sister that I looked up to just pulled out her pink digital praying device
I was quietly laughing while reading Catatan MatLuthfi 🙊
It was sort of obvious that I somehow don’t belong there. Haru. Grateful to be able to be in the presence of those who, insyaAllah, remembers Allah abundantly.
May Allah make us to be around these people and may He make us one of them.
اللهم صل على سيدنا محمد وعلى آله وصحبه وسلم
I think being busy solves a lot of problems.
Just make yourself busy.
Busy with school
Tutorials, presentations, tests, projects, forum discussions.
Busy trying to lead an active lifestyle
Badminton, roller blading, gym.
Busy with extra classes
Busy with work
Teach, teach, teach.
Busy with contributing back
And do it for the right reason.
Do it for Allah.
InsyaAllah all the things above is as if ‘I am busy doing things for Allah’
Semoga hatimu pulih sayang.
