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

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
