Paradigm shift or Mind shift

I realised one very phenominal thing recently that I want to share with all.

Until and unless we change the way we see things.

Some people call it a "paradigm shift" and some call it "mind shift".

It is changing the way we see things and this has something to do with our heart and our MAKER.

This world and the environment CANNOT change you unless you give permission to do so.

If we set a goal, we should be focusing our mind and soul to achieve the goal. If we fail, we try again and again until we succeed. This is the winning mentality.. never give up.. the human mind is so very powerful if only we know how to use them correctly.

I do not intend to write a motivational book on the matter. Sufficient to mention that if we focus on something, put your mind to it, and do something to achieve it.

One of the way to unlock this unlimited potential is to learn to be GRATEFUL and PPRECIATIVE.

Change the way you look at life and APPRECIATE the things that you have!

Try it... and search for greatness!

Preparation before Ramadan comes

It is just less than 50 days before all of us will meet Ramadan again.

You will be surprised how fast the time pass by in these periods and you will observe people pass away during these period ( it might be me!)

We do not know whether we will successful in meeting the coming Ramadan, but we make doa to Allah that He granted our wish.

We should be slowing doing the necesssary preparation for Ramadan. The months of Rejab and Syaaban are trial periods before we reach the real Ramadan!

There are 4 things that we can start doing:-

1. Read and tadabbur Quran
2. Start fasting sunnah
3. Start making solat at night (tahajjud)
4. Start guarding our tongues

Ya Rabb, please give me the strenght to do ALL the above.....

Aameen

MU lost at home to West Brom.. how unlucky!

Manchester United lost 3 games in a row without scoring a single goal.

They lost 1-0 to Chelsea (a) and 3-0 to Everton (a). But losing 1-0 at home to West Brom was really very disappointing indeed.

When I compare these results with last season's results (under David Moyes), all these games were lost as well (this is not a consolation).

I watched these games with my MU mates (my cousin's sons) and we were very disappointed.

Wait a minute... Yes, I am disappointed but these are all Allah's plans and desire. No need to be disappointed. We are slaves to Allah.

The next 3 games will be crutial. Crystal Palace (a), Arsenal (h) and Hull (a). The worst thing is MU do not collect any points from the remaining games and the best thing is that MU collects 9 points.

Bring on the game. I will support MU and enjoy the games...

Jangan bersedih.. Yakini Allah... Tingkatkan TAQWA

Sedih keadaan Mesir & umat Islam dunia, yakini bahwa Allah yg menolong org2 "mukmin"

Sedih kerna ramai yang dibunuh beramai2, yakini Allah yang memberi ganjaran/balasan

Sedih kerna umat Islam disiksa dan ditindas, yakini bahwa ujian Allah dan ganjaran yang menanti mereka diakhirat

Sedih kerna janda & anak yatim kehilangan ayah, yakini Allah pelindung mereka, dan Allah Maha Pengasih lagi Penyayang

Sedih kerna orang2 batil yang berkuasa dibumi ini, yakini bahwa kekuasaan mereka hanya sementara, api neraka menunggu mereka buat selama2nya

Dari itu.. jangan bersedih.. yakini Allah.. tingkatkan taqwa.. Allah bersama2 orang2 yang sabar

We have MORE but...

We build taller buildings but shorter tempers

Wider Highways but narrower viewpoints

We spend more, but have less
Buy more but enjoy less

We have bigger houses but smaller families
More Conveniences but less time

We have more degrees but less sense
More knowledge but less judgement

More experts yet more problems
More medicine but less wellness

We spend too recklessly, laugh less
Drive too fast, get too angry, stay up too late, read too little, PRAY too seldom

We have multiplied our posessions but reduce our values
We talk too much, love too seldom & hate too often

We learn how to make a living, but not a life
We added life to years, but not years to life

We conquer the outer space but not the inner feelings
We have done large things but not better things

We clean up the air but polluted the soul
We write more but learn less

We plan more but accomplish less
We hold more information, but communicate less

Fast food but low digestion
Big people but small character
Steep profit but shallow relationship
Fancy houses but broken homes

Take a pause and THINK.... Are we better off than before?

Surah ArRahmaan

Surah ArRahmaan (55) is the most catchy Surah in the whole Quran.

There is one ayaat that is repeated a total of 31 times in this Surah.

The meaning of this repeated ayaat "Then, which of the favours of your Rabb will you both (humans & Jinn) deny?"

Allah azzawajal questions us many times on this particular question.. The signs are all over us that Allah favours are too much for us to mention.

This nature that Allah has built for us is such in a balance that we can live in. Let us add an insignicant small percentage of Oxygen from this atmosphere, then the world is no more balance. The world with say, 1% more oxygen will make many things more prone to explosion as oxygen will aid combustion.

Or, if one of our three main heart artery is blocked, then you will not be able to pump blood as easily as having all arteries working harmoniously.

Anyway back to Surah ArRahmaan, this MOST mercily Allah azzawajal's first mention after ArRahmaan is "Allamal Quran" (He taught you the Quran). The ones whom Allah "teaches" the Quran will have His most mercy bestowed to that person.

Let us all make an effort to really learn the Quran and execute them as it is indeed the Guided Book for the people who Believe"

Make dua for all of us to be Guided by Allah azzawajal.

Aamiin.

GST and April Fool's Day

1 April is famous with April Fools Day(sometimes called All Fools' Day).

It is celebrated every year on the first day of April as a day when people play practical jokes and hoaxes on each other.

The jokes and their victims are known as "April fools". Popular since the 19th century, the day is not a national holiday in any country.

When I was a child in primary school, I myself played practical jokes with my friends and laughed about it.

This year (2015), Malaysia will start implementing GST (Goods & Services Tax). No, this is NOT a practical joke! This is for real.

What many people say that generally price of goods will come down by the abolishment of SST and the establishment of GST. This is a JOKE! It is the BIGGEST joke ever!

Let us observe what will happen come 1 April 2015.

Happy April Fools Day everyone
