Dakwah to my readers is what I want to reach out.

I wanted to share with them that Islam is so very wonderful. I want them all to join me in feeling this wonderful religion. It is not a religion of burden, but the religion of peace and tranquillity.

What I discovered is that the most important trait  when you discover that Islam is wonderful is the feeling of "grateful and thankfulness". If we can appreciate the wonderful things that happened to us given by Allah azzawajal, then we can truely feel the awesomeness of Islam.

Never see the negative side of things. Always count your blessings and be grateful of what you have achieved until this moment. Your health, your family, your friends, your job, your carrier, your financial status  are all good for you (if only you know the blessings they bring).

Only grateful people will appreciate the wonderful things that bestowed them.

If you are the people who likes to complain and whine, then you will realise that this category of people will not achieve the wonderful things in life and in ISLAM.

ISLAM is about being the slave of Allah with sincerity.. no conditions...

When we do ibadah, it has 2 (two) components:-

1. worship - your ritual such as solat, fasting, zakat & hajj

2. Obedience - to follow what Allah says and to abstain from what Allah forbids at ALL TIMES.

This is the essence of ISLAM.

In summary
1. ISLAM is wonderful
2. Be Grateful
3. Look positive always
4. Sincerity in your ibadah
5. which is worship
6. and Obedience to Allah's rule

2013 - year end projects with daughters

Another year is about to come to a close.

If you follow my blog constantly, every year-end holiday I did asked my 4 daughters to achieve something together with me.

It started way back in 2009, when the first project was to solve the Rubik's 3x3 cube.

2010, was to complete hafazan Surah AtTaariq and 2011 to complete hafazan Surah Al-Buruuj. But come 2012, I did not specify  anything specific. The reason being that I thought after Surah Al-Buruuj, the remaining Juz Ammar becomes difficult.

The rule is that 1 of my 4 daughters must be able to achieve the set target. The deadline is 31 Dec each year.

2009 - Aliah (1st daughter) managed to solve Rubik's cube; I also managed in Nov2009
2010- Ain (3rd daughter) managed to hafaz At-Taariq; I managed to hafaz in Dec2010
2011- Ain (3rd daughter) managed to hafaz Al-Buruuj; I only managed to hafaz in Feb2012 (2 months delay)

But in 2013, I again set hafaz Surah Al-Insyiqaaq as the project. And this time, I wanted either Aisyah (2nd daughter) or Anis (4th daughter) to achieve it with me.

I sincerely hope we can achieve it.. together..

Make doa for me

My feeling when Man Utd loss at home to toffees and magpies

I cannot describe how disappointed I am when I got the results of 2 of Man Utd's recent matches.

Both are home games against Everton and Newcastle respectively. Everton was Moyes' former club and Newcastle is a club bearing my nickname (magpie). Both games I did not watch life but follow them on ESPN live score on my smartphone.

I was at Heathrow airport London for the Everton match and was at Putrajaya for the Newcastle match.

I presume Mr Moyes is in deep trouble at the moment. He needs a stroke of good luck and a Man Utd win desperately.

But wait, I should be grateful and thankful to Allah. This is exactly the feeling of Arsenal and Liverpool supporters all this while. This is also the feeling of Chelsea and Man City supporters as well. No wonder they hate MU so much.

I have not felt this feeling for a long time. I have forgotten how to be sad as the MU is always winning. I have forgotten the word patience and peserverance.

I should say, thank you for this feeling as now I realise the value of winning. Bring us the next game.
I sincerely think MU will not win the BPL this season. They are lucky if they can be in the top 4. Arsenal, Liverpool, Chelsea and Man City will occupy the top 4 spots. MU will have to fight with Newcatle, Everton, Spurs and Southampton for 5th spot.

Whatever the results of MU in the future, I will still support them. No matter how disappointed I am, I am truly a MU fan and I will watch every MU game when I have the opportunity to do so.

Thank you MU for the entertainment & disappointments.

Then again, to my Norwegian followers, I also sincerely hope, one day Ole Gunnar Solksjaer will be MU manager...
