2 pages of Quran each day

Since 1 of Jan 2017, I began my journey of reading 2 pages of Quran every day.

Even in the blessed month of Ramadan, I still maintain 2 pages of Quran per day.

Yesterday 19 Oct 2017, was the 292th day of the year. I finished page 584 of the Quran.

I reached Surah An-Naaziat, the very surah that I am trying to memories.

Alhamdulillah, that completes my Quran. Masyaallah, just 2 pages a day, and I finished the Quran within 10 months.

Alhamdulillah. Oh Allah, give me strength to continue reading the Quran daily without miss.

Aamiin

I am a Grandfather

On 26th September 2017 (5 Muharram 1439H) my daughter gave birth to a baby boy.

That means I am officially a grandfather.

All praise be to Allah for giving me the opportunity to become a grandfather.

It is a wonderful feeling. It is very different feeling from being a father.

Nonetheless, I am very grateful to Allah that both my daughter and grandson is fine.

Welcome to the world Rayyan Khairul Nazmi.

3 unhappy BPL players and their team performance

Alexis Sanchez, Diego Costa and Philippe Coutinho are world class football players.

They are integral to their respective teams last season.

Sanchez helped Arsenal win the FA Cup.
Costa scored many important goals that won Chelsea the Barclays Premier League.
Coutinho is instrumental in helping Liverpool qualify for the Champions League.

Sanchez plays for Chile.
Costa is from Brazil but opted to play for Spain
Coutinho plays for Brazil.

All of them will play for their respective countries in next years World Cup.

All of them are unhappy with their current club and wanted to move on.

But their club have other ideas. They do not allow them to transfer out.

These 3 "unhappy" players will remain at their respective club. Let us see what effect these players have on their club's performance.....

My take is that, if a player wants to go, just let them go and we move on.

But the question is what will be the effect to the rest of the team? Let us observe...

Consistency........ a difficult thing to do

Lately I have been reflecting on my life....

I am still blogging for more than 8 years now.....

I followed a few blogs as well

1. LOLLIES PLACE
2.What-A-Wonderful-World
3. The Inner Peace
4. hak55
5. KOMOREBI
6. Sunnah Harian
7. Gartblue Growls

All of the blog writers that I follow above have stopped blogging.

With FB, IG and Twitter, blog is no more needed. I don't know.....

Maybe I should consider to stop as well...

But wait. I write to remind myself. I write to dakwah. I write to share something wonderful for others to read. I write to spread the wonderful things about Islam...

May Allah give me strength

Mr Arsene Wenger (Love him or Loath him)

I have always admired Mr Arsene Wenger as one of the best football managers in the world.

What he did at Arsenal is phenomenal. I used to envy Arsenal. Arsenal under Arsene Wenger, they are sometimes better than MU under Sir Alex Ferguson.

But this season 2017/18, I began to doubt his abilities. He is from the old school thinking. What works 10 years ago will not work in the next 2 years.

Football has changed and managing footballers has changed.

In a way, I am happy that Arsenal are really in disarray at the moment. Am I talking too soon?

Time will tell and time will also tell whether Mr Wenger can last for another 2 seasons....



30th day of Syawal is bigger than 1st day of Zulhijjah

I long to write about Eidul Adha in Malaysia.

The excitement of celebrating Eidul Adha is very much less compared to celebrating Eidul Fitri.

In Islam, Eidul Adha is considered bigger occasion than Eidul Fitri.

But the opposite is happening in Malaysia.

There are many reasons for this:-

1. Eidul Fitri is given 2 days off while Eidul Adha 1 day only

2. Eidul Fitri has songs and decorations to create the festival mood, while Eidul Adha has none.

3. Eidul Fitri has sales for shoppers while Eidul Adha has none.

But the main culprit is, in Malaysia (especially) Eidul Fitri is being celebrated for the whole month long. The amount of food, open houses, clothing, gifts, TV programs, photo shoot and entertainment are being stretched for the whole month.

Corporations celebrate Eidul Fitri until 30 Syawal with food, dresses, photos and music to create the raya atmosphere. By the time Eidul Adha comes 40 days later, people are just out of mood.

My observation is that 30th day of Eidul Fitri is being celebrated more than 1 day of Zulhijjah.

Anyway, both the Eid is for Muslims to glorify the Greatness of Allah

Allahu Akbar x3, walillah hilhamd

Allah knows best..
