Wedding reception - Kota Bharu

The last of the wedding reception was done in Kota Bharu.

This was to cater for people in KB (my significant other's side) that could not make it in KL on 2nd Jan 2016.

The reception was very nice indeed in a kampong atmosphere.

It started with doa selamat at 11.45am.

Then makan2 from 12-5pm.

Many people came. Estimated was 500 guests. They come & go as they please.

There was also girls from Rumah Anak2 Yatim Siti Aminah in KB which consists of 35 people.

All in all, this last reception was the closure of my 1st daughter's wedding.

I try to invite as many friends as I can in order to celebrate and share the joy of my historic moment.

To Aliah & Khai, best wishes to both of you in your newly married life.

To guests who came to my event, May Allah bless us All.


Wedding Reception - Groom side

The wedding reception for the groom side was held on 9th Jan 2016 in INTEC hall in Shah Alam.

Now, it is my side to gather my entourage for the groom side.

I found it difficult to achieve 50 people that has been allocated.

But Allah is the best planner, at the last moment, I managed to get to the required number.

My family (5), Faisal & Rudy (2), Jah (3), Kamil's friends (3), Maknab + Siti (5), Che Yah (3), Che Fauziah (3), Makjah (1), Dato Faruk (5) + Busu Bedah (5), Salina (5), Aman (3), Be Wa (3), Za (2).

We arrived at 1pm with the kompang boys.

I was seated at the main table.

Me & wife
Maknab & PC Razak
Dato Faruk & Aida
Datuk Rahman & Maktok
Faisal & Rudy + Makjah naik ke pelamin untuk menenjis.

The food was good and the atmosphere was pleasant.

Thank you all for the time. May Allah help us all. Aamiin


I saw this incredible Hindustan movie entitle Dilwale.

It is a very good entertainment movie and the producer really knows how to make the movie watchers entertained.

Violence & drugs, pretty women, dancing, romance, fantastic scenery, flashy cars with beautiful music in the background..makes all of us in dreamland.

Entertainment -> Yes

Reality Check -> No

This sort of films will make people dream and happy for a while. Then when they found out that these things are not real... people will become frustrated and tensed.

Only the remembrance of Allah will make the heart calm/peace (Raad:28)

New prediction for BPL 2016

My earlier prediction for BPL 2016.
1. Man United
2. Man City
3. Arsenal
4. Chelsea

My new prediction for BPL 2016 (early Feb 2016)
1. Leceister City
2. Man City
3. Arsenal
4. Tottenham

My beloved MU, they will be in 5th place. I will renew my prediction come May 2016.

Yes, I am a dreamer when I predicted than MU will win this year's BPL.

But that only shows that I am a human and prediction is always wrong..

Why Allah made us

I just finished reading this incredible book.

It explains why Allah made humans in the Quran

There are 2 main reasons:-

1. To enslave to Him. (Surah: AzZaariyat:56)

2. To manage this world (Surah Baqarah:30) ie Caliph in this world

So one is the relationship with Allah and two is the relationship with humans as well as Allah's creations

But there is this 3 end-game that Allah has made humans. And it is written all over the Quran.

3. So that certain humans will join Allah in the afterlife.

This is the End Game. If we do the 2 things correctly for His sake in this world, we will join Allah in the next world.

Masyaallah, this is really incredible. May Allah gave us the strength to guide us to do the 2 things and grant us the No.3


The wedding reception

The reception was held at my house in PJ on he 2nd January 2016.
My guests list is approximately 1,100. This is based on 550 cards that I have distributed since 1 Dec 2015.

The groom side came at 11.30 am. There is this toll-gate created incident where my relatives made human barricades in order to block the groom from entering the house. In order for the groom (and his entourage) to enter, they must pay a sum of money to the human barricade for them to pass through. It was fun and memorable.

I and my cousins, we did selawat for Rasulullah SAW when the groom finally entered the house to join the bride. This was NOT in the agenda.. it was inpromtu and it worked brilliantly.

By 12pm, oceans of people came to the house. I just cannot remember how many came, but MANY came.

I was permanently stationed at the entrance of my house in order to greet the in-coming guests and to thank the out-going guests
by giving the door gifts.

Old friends (MCKK colleagues), neighbours, surau/masjid friends, TNB friends, university mates, distance relatives..  they came with their families.

My ceremony was until 4pm. By 3pm, the food was almost finished! What!!

More food was ordered as may people still come between 3-4pm
Wow! This is really incredible!

I thank everyone who came to my daughter's reception on 2nd Jan 2016. I was overwhelming! I panicked a bit when told that the food was about to finished at 3pm. But I felt relieved when new food came at 3.30pm. We had to even take the food from the main table to serve the guests.

When it finally finished, I am really exhausted. But it was well worth it.

Alhamdulillah.. All praise be to Allah

Strategy for 2016

For me 2016 came in a bang!

Frankly, I did not prepare for 2016. I just married my daughter.

My youngest daughter went to a hostel.

My wife opened a small shop.

What I expect, is that 2016 is a year that I can reflect A year of reflection. A year without any new resolutions, but a year to strengthen whatever that has been planned.

Ya Rabb, help me through 2016 with all the changes.
