LIFE is like a DOUBLE EDGE SWORD

It is a Friday afternoon, and heavy rain in KL..

Yes, heavy rain reminds us of challenges in life... never ask for a lighter rain. Just pray to Allah for a better umbrella.

That should be the attitude! When the going gets tough, the tough gets going.

Life in NOT about finding the right person, but creating the right RELATIONSHIP.
It is not how we care in the beginning, but how we care till the very end.

Some people will throw stones in your path. It all depends on what you make with them. Be like the bridge, you are the architect of your life.

Search for a GOOD HEART, do not search for a beautiful face.
Because beautiful things are not always good, but GOOD THINGS are ALWAYS beautiful.

Often we lose hope in life and think it is the end... Remember Allah, it is just the MEANS..the end will be the akhirat

Have iman and have a successful life.

Allah gives, gives and forgives
Human gets, gets and forgets

This cannot be coincidence in life:-
1. LIFE has 4 letters so does DEAD
2. HATE has 4 letters so does LOVE
3. ENEMIES has 7 letters so does FRIENDS
4. LYING has 5 letters so does TRUTH
5. HURT has 4 letters so does HEAL
6. NEGATIVE has 8 letters so does POSITIVE
7. FAILURE has 7 letters so does SUCCESS
8. BELOW has 5 letters so does ABOVE
9. CRY has 3 letters so does JOY
10.ANGER has 5 letters so does HAPPY
11.RIGHT has 5 letters so does WRONG
12.RICH has 4 letters so does POOR
13.FAIL has 4 letters so does PASS
14.KNOWLEDGE has 9 letters so does IGNORANCE

Are all of them CO-INCIDENCE?

We should choose wisely, as LIFE is like a DOUBLE EDGE SWORD.

If you think the ALARM CLOCK woke you up, try putting it beside a dead body.
Allah's mercy wake us up every morning. So be GRATEFUL!

Ya Rabb, pleasex2 keep us among the people who are GRATEFUL to you...Aamiin

A few of Allah's slaves.....

I have a distant friend who NEVER complain. I NEVER hear him complain about anything.

He just accept things as it comes. Some people call him a "blur" guy.

Recently I asked him "Why are you not complaining?"
He answered "Why should I? Whatever happens in this world has a reason by Allah. He knows best"

Masyaallah...I began to respect him so very HIGHLY. By not complaining, this friend of mine shows really HIGH GRATITUDE towards Allah.

I remember 1 ayat in Quran, Surah AsSaba':13 "..a few of my slaves are GRATEFUL"

On the contrary, I seach for "most people" in the Holy Quran and found
1. do not know
2. do not give thanks
3. do not believe

And if you search for "most of them", I found
1. defiantly disobidient
2. ignorant
3. turn away
4. do not listen

I made a quick survey of the the surroundings now. Almost everyone complained in one way or the other. With social media, the amount of complains increased exponentially.

Ya Rabb,make us among a few of your slaves. Make us remember you, being grateful to you and serving you in order to seek your pleasure...

Aamiin.

Ya Allah.. continue guide us...

Sometimes ideas to write come easily without even thinking...

Allah owns everything in this world & the next. Our body and soul belongs to Allah.

We do not own anything. We shall return to HIM one day.

So have no worries. This life is a test for all of us. When our time comes, we have to return to Allah, whether we are ready or otherwise.

We have to be prepared to part and return to him.

Allah has given us the guidance in the form of Quran & Rasul. We are to follow them if we want to be successful and return to HIM successfully.

There is a reward waiting for us in our PERMANENT home. There is also punishment.

The best of all people are the people of taqwa. They live the life according to Allah's instructions. They find peace in this world and the hereafter.

These people, nobody own them. They only strive for the pleasure from Allah.

The people of taqwa, Allah protect them. Allah is pleased with them and they are pleased with Allah.

They know that Allah is the ONE that gives them guidance. They check themselves as not to be ARROGANT, but to be a humble slave of Allah.

"Ya Rabb..guide me to your straight path. Do not let us stray away. Accept us to be your slave Ya Allah. Save us from the fire of jahannam"


Life is like a roller coaster ride..

Life is like a roller coaster.. there will be highs and lows.. that is what makes it interesting. So accept life as it is..not perfect unfair at times

This dunya life is a testing ground.. there will be easy tests and there will be difficult ones..

There will be 2 extremes of emotions in life
1. being too confident and becomes arrogant
2. having no confidence and become hopeless and give up

Do not fall into these 2 extreme emotions. Always check yourself to be confident but not arrogant. Argue with facts and keep your emotions at check.

When speaking, think of 3 things:-
1. Am I speaking the truth?
2. It is necessary?
3. Is it kind?

So, our main objective is when you are at your low -> still perform the BARE MINIMUM
And when you are at your High -> make sure your high is higher than before

This tactic can pull you through this roller coaster life.

Just sharing with my friends... Greetings of a new hijri year to all Muslim friends

I am still blogging....

When I look back at my first blog posting in Jul 2008, I began to reflect back the those times.

It has been 6 years and 250 postings since I first blog. And I am still blogging. Masyaallah..

I realise from surah AlAsr that I have to do 4 essential things. They are:-
1. Believe (iman)
2. Do good deeds (amal soleh)
3. Remind of the righteous (tawasa bil haq)
4. Remind of patience (tawasa bil sabr)

Blog writing is the 2 last bit.

Not only that, I have to constantly check my intentions and it must be SINCERE. Also I must stay HUMBLE and remember that I am the slave of Allah.

What Allah has bestowed and given to me is the best for me and I have to always be GRATEFUL for all these blessings..

Ya Rabb, I make dua that you continue to guide me and all mankind towards your deen. You are the ONE that we all need.
Aamiin.

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
