Hope it benefits you as it has benefited me

My target this Ramadan 1416

This particular Ramadan, I am taking it on a slightly different turn..

1. I will try to pray jumaah in masjid/musalla

2. I will try to guard my tongue in order not to hurt people

3. I will try pray within 1/3 of the night (before subuh)

4. I will try to do more sadakah.. insyaallah

5. I will try do tadabbur Quran (to understand the meaning of the message) rather than finishing the whole Quran in the month of Ramadan

Make doa for me my friends, in order for Allah to give me the strength to do the above ibadah

The passing of Muhammad Ali - World's Greatest Boxer

I received the new of the passing away of former world heavyweight boxer, Muhammad Ali on Friday evening 3 Jun 2016 when I was on holiday with my family in Singapore.

I felt sad. Muhammad Ali was my late father's favorite boxer. He used to be excited when there is a fight involving Ali.

I still remember how my late father used to talk about how great Ali is when he danced around the ring. "Float like a butterfly and sting like a bee"

May Allah give His mercy to both Muhammad Ali and my late father Mustaffa Menfari.

However great we are, we shall return to Allah.

Allah hu Akbar
