My Aidil Adha 1435H and seeking the ultimate "PEACE"..

I am continuing my hafazan on Juz Amma and have now reached Surah Al Infitar (Surah82)

Alhamdulillah, I can hafaz the surah now and I thank Allah for giving me the guidance. The beautiful thing is that I achieved it on the day of 10th Zulhijjah (Aidil Adha).

The takbir, tahmid and tahlil follows the joy of having to hafaz this wonderful surah

I also wanted to share with you the observation that I recently discovered about us humans. We are all ultimately trying to seek "success and peace of mind" in our life.

But we always seek the wrong indicator. Wealth, status and power are the common benchmark in this material world.

No..No seek no further. By abiding to the true teachings of Allah will this heart be at peace...

Ya Allah, I seek your power to guide me to the straight path... Please Ya Rabb.. grant me my doa and make me among the people of success..

Aamiin

Surah Al Ankabuut 45~52

I find another surah that I should share with ALL.

Surah Al Ankabuut from ayat 45 until ayat 52.

If I can compress it, it is about the Quran that is being given to us from Allah azzawajal.

Because I confine myself to write in a very simplistic manner, I will pick ayat 50 & 51 of Suran Al Ankabuut:-
50 - And they (Bani Israel) say "Why are they no signs from your Rabb?"....
51 - Well, does it not suffice (enough) that We have sent down this Book upon you which is recited to them?...

The Quran is ENOUGH to give us ALL a clear sign that Allah is our Rabb and we rely on Him alone. It is such a devine book that it is THE PROOF for those who believe. It enhances the believe system. But we must first seek the proper knowledge to truely understand deeply what Allah is saying in the Quran.

I know in this very short writing, I cannot make people be convinced about the power that Quran possess. It is not my intention to convince you.

The central theme is that, we have to make the effort to really understand the Quran.

Once you understand, it becomes a magnet that you are just attracted to it and wanting to seek more..

Make doa to Allah, that He gives all of US the strength to have the understanding of Quran until the last breath that we take.

Aamiin

Surah2 that starts with letters (Muqattaat)

This time I am writing to remind myself of the power of AlQuran.

I have been mesmerised by its content and word structure of this miraculous book. No doubt that it is not written by a human.

I made a research on the surah in the Quran that starts with alphabet. There are 29 surahs in this category. They call this as Muqattaat. In ALL instances, the ayat after the alphabet explains about the Quran.

Masyaallah.. a reminder to us all that Quran is indeed the book from Allah, our Maker.
I pray hard to Allah, please Ya Rabb, do not let me go astray from the guidance that you have given to me.

Their meanings remain unclear and are considered by most Muslims to be divine secrets.

Please make me be from the people of taqwa and please let me be your slave that worship you at ALL times.

Aamiin

Visiting relatives and pondering the Greatness of Allah

This posting is about me having visited my relatives yesterday.

I went to visit my relatives at 3 different places.
1. An uncle, who is at a nursing home
2. An distant aunt, who is also my late mother's close friend, at her house
3. My late distant cousin's family

All these 3 visits made me realise how short life is. It also made me think that we are all growing old and eventually will  die to return to Allah and meet Him.

All of the above relatives are close to my late mother. When I started talking about the good times they had with my mother, tears flow from their eyes and that made me sad. But, that also made me happy as all of us had the opportunity to treasure those very precious moments and remember that only Allah is ever lasting.

I hope that I have many more opportunities like this in order to cherish those moments with my relatives and friends.

And let us remember that Allah is the Greatest and we will be DEFINITELY be returning to Him. 
    

My loving daughters

I have not written about my daughters for some time.

They have all grown up.

The first one is now in Auckland, New Zealand. She should be mature and independent now. Just have to learn about life and experience it on her own.

The second one is studying architecture in UiTM, Shah Alam. She is acquiring skills to be a very good achitect, and I see great talent in her.

The third & forth are still schooling, and I make a point to recite Quran with them 3 times in a week. I sincerely hope the third one will finish (khatam) the Quran before Eidil Adha this year. That is my target for her.

As a father, I will support them and make doa for them to make the best of life in this world.

I seek Allah's power to guide them to the right path and enter jannah together.

Aameen.

BPL season 2014/15 - predictions

Manchester United under Luis Vaal Gaal (LVG) is in a period of transition. It will take time before MU will a force again.

Many wannabe pundits (including me) want to give their prediction at the start of each season.

So here goes, for BPL top 7, I will stick to the same teams as last season. But the order will be different.
1. Chelsea
2. Man City
3. Liverpool
4. Arsenal
5. Man Utd
6. Spurs
7. Everton

This comes from me. I am no pro pundit.

It is going to be a long season with many twists and turns.

I will support MU and cheer for them in every match.

Enjoy the season.
