An athlete that I admired when I was young

I love football (or soccer) and I have played the game since I was 7 years old.

I also love sports in general having played (and have the gear too) field hockey, badminton, squash, tennis and table tennis.

I have many childhood idols that I look up to when I was small and young.

But there is no other sportsperson that I really respect above Ayrton Senna (3 times F1 Champion driver)

You can google about his outstanding achievements, but I can only conclude them in 2 words:-
1. remarkable talent
2. sheer determination to win
that leads to pushing his capabilities beyond limit.

This posting is a tribute to an exceptional person that I admire.

Hafazan - Surah Mutaffifin

This 2015, I dedicated to achieve to memorise Surah 83 (Mutaffifin).

It has 36 ayaats in all, the longest so far in Juzuk Amar. The longest before this surah that I memorised was Al-Fajr (30 ayaats which I struggle)

I am determine to achieve this with my sheer determination, for the sake of Allah

Looking back in time,
2012 - Memorise Al-Buruuj
2013 - Al-Insyiqaaq
2014 - Al -Infitaar
2015 - Al-Mutaffifin

Make doa for me please. With Allah's help.. insyaallah I will succeed. I have until 2359hr 31 Dec 2015 to achieve it (that is if I am still alive at that time..)

My advice to my daughters when feeling down

I has been a while since I wrote about my 4 daughters.

They are very important to me. I shall give them ALL the support to ensure they lead a good life. Below are my advice specific to them.

This world, sometimes you will face ups and downs. That is life. It is never up and it is never down.
We need to deal with these situations. That is why reminder by our close friends/relatives is VERY IMPORTANT.

When we are down, like we think that we are not good, not doing well in our exams and feeling that we are not important, come back to Allah.

It is okay to feel down, but it is NOT OK to feel down all the time.

Just let the feeling sink in, and get back to your senses.

I am good. I do well in my exams and I am important to Allah and the people who are close to me. Talk to close friends/relatives about you feeling down. And these people will motivate you back to be feeling positive.

Just be aware that our LIFE is full of ups and downs. The key is your ups MUST BE MUCH MORE than your downs.

The solution - seek advice from close people and seek forgiveness from Allah. Then have a POSITIVE mind.

Insyaallah it works. Well... it works for me. That is why I share this article.

Aliah my eldest daughter is very beautiful and active in sports/activities. She loves cats. Taking Psychology at Auckland University of Technology (AUT)

Aisyah my second daughter is very beautiful and active in arts and photography. She loves fashion. Taking Architecture at University institute Technology Mara (UiTM)

Ain Zahra, my third is very pretty and studying form 3 at SMKP Sri Aman, Petaling Jaya (High Performance School)

Anis Sofia, my fouth is very pretty and studying in Std 6 at SIM Darul Ehsan, Subang Jaya (Good Integrated School)

My daughters are my trustees. I am responsible to them.

Last bit of advice which they already know "Jangan lupa Solat"

Allah will take care of All of us

Man Utd lost to Arsenal

Manchester United lost at home to bitter rivals Arsenal in the Quarter Finals of the English FA Cup..

Disappointed? Of couse... but not for long

As I analyse the game, MU did not deserve to win

There will be important matches ahead, Spurs (h), Liverpool (a), Aston Villa & Man City (h) and Chelsea (a).

These 5 matches will determine MU's season.

Just enjoy......

Some more good quotes...

When you get really angry.... just forgive

Before you speak, let your words pass through 3 gates:-
is it true?
is it necesssary?
is it kind?

Learn to:-
love without condition
talk without bad intentions
give without any reason
care for others without any expectation

The unhappiest people in this world are the people who care most about what other people think

Those who spend their time looking for faults of others usually make no time to correct their own

If you have:-
family that loves you
a few good friends
food on your table
roof above your head.... you have everything!

Allah KNOWS, we as slaves do not know....

I discovered a very important surah that I wanted to relate to my followers

Surah Baqarah:30 ".. I know what you do not know"

Surah AlKahfi: 60~82 Is about the story of Musa who wanted to learn from Khidir. But Khidir warned Musa " you can never be patient if you follow me. How can you be patient if you do not have sufficient knowledge about it"

These 2 ayats illustrates to us the VAST KNOWLEDGE of Allah. There is absolutely no way we can understand Allah's knowledge. He is the ALL KNOWING. HE knows the past, the present and ALL the permutations of the future. You can never imagine how many ways things can turn out in the future with what we do today.

Allah knows ALL. We as slaves of Allah have the power to decide our destiny. That Allah give us the limited power to decide. That is why we (slaves) are accountable for what what we do. Yes, Allah knows the outcome of our decision, but the fact remains that we have a certain power that Allah give.

This is consistent with our believe that there are 2 components in our lives.
1. Our own effort
2. Allah's will

That is why in Surah Fatihah
"Only to you we enslaves ourselves and to you we seek help"

2 things to remember
1. Give your best
2. Make dua to Allah

So very powerful and so very simple
I make doa that ALL of us give our best to be closer to Allah. And I make doa that Allah help us to be closer to HIM.

We must understand the Quran.

Quran is in Arabic. There is a specific reason for it to be revealed in classical Arabic.

We must learn Arabic in order to understand the meaning of Allah's words.
