Link between Malaysia and Norway

I finally have the reason to connect Malaysia with Norway.

1 give 3 different scenario:-
1. The link between owner of Cardiff City FC and his new manager; Vincent Tan (Malaysian) and Ole Gunnar Solksjaer (Norway)

2. The alphabet M and N; N comes right after M

3. Malaysia and Norway having a common bond in terms of the TRUE BELIEF in Allah and the Muslim community.

I have to admit, I am mesmerise to know how much followers I have in Norway. And the the 3rd scenario is the one that I believe connects my blog to my blog followers in Norway. The common understanding to really seek the truth from our Creator (Allah) is the one that bonds Malaysia (me) and Norway (my blog readers).

Truely, the bond between fellow Muslims is very strong and indeed everlasting as this bond will continue to keep us close in the virtual world.

I make doa to Allah that me and my readers will have this bond and I am seeking to just impart my little knowledge in order that we Muslims will do the small things continuously that will make big differences in this world and the next.

Truely, my favourite word now "If we have Allah, we have EVERYTHING"...

Remembering Prophet Muhammad SAW by following his Sunnah

In a few days time, Muslims will be remembering the birthdate of Prophet Muhammad SAW.

He is the best creation from Allah and He is what we normally call "rahmatan lil a'lamin - saviour of this universe".

We must follow His practices, as He is the role model of a true believer.

There are many sunnah to follow, but as I always write in simple and practical manner, I am just sharing only 4 sunnah that I feel do-able:-

1. Solat in Jamaah , if possible in masjid. This is really something that Prophet always emphasis. The reward is tremedously huge and this practice really encompass our true faith in our CREATOR.

2. Read Quran daily. Make a point to read the Quran once a day. Does not matter if it is one ayat or more, surely reading Quran will again have a huge affect on the reader. Make a point to also note the meaning of the ayat, and if you have time the tafseer of the ayat.

3. Perform solat tahajjud. Again, this shows your relationship with Allah. This is what Prophet always do in order to maintain the strong bond between the slave and his Master

4. Always be in wudu'. Again a simple ritual to do. This action again shows our rememberance of our Rab and this ever continuous conscience between the slave and his Great Master.

There you are!
4 Sunnah that I recommend every muslim to try to it consistently. It will definitely change you.

There are also 4 things that are REALLY2 effective to make us be a STRONG person.

1. Have iman. Really have a strong believe in Allah. This includes:-
Always remember Allah; Always have the believe that Allah gives the best for you-you should know how lucky you are; And never ever give up from Allah's mercy

2. Do good deeds. Be good, do good stuff. Do't hurt other people. Don't destroy the earth. Help people and donate to charity

3. Give advice to people on being grateful and sincere. Really2 grateful to Allah for what He has given to us and be sincere in whatever we do.

4. Give advice to people to be patient. When faced with difficulty, advice people that Allah will never abandon his slaves. Just make doa and He will help you in a way you will never imagined.

Sounds like a surah.. Yes surah Al-Asr (103). These are the exceptional people who are NOT in a loss in this Duniah..and is successful in the hereafter.

May all of us be part of these people. Ameen...

My 2014 target, to be consistent in my EXERCISE

This 2014, I have set myself a small achievable target.

When people commit to something, they usually write it down for record purposes.

I am making a point to exercise at least twice a week. If I cannot meet that, then I make sure that I compensate the exercise session that I miss the following week immediately.

Say week 1; I did not do any exercise, then week 2; I must target to do 4 exercises.

The exercises comprises of just minimum 20 minutes of brisk walking and light jogging. That is all.

You can see that, whenever I do a target setting, I never aim high. But what I look for is constantly doing it, however small is the target.

I am 50 years old on Hijr lunar calendar and I have 1 (one) stent in my artery. Time to really take care of my health in order to fully optimise being the slave of Allah and being the breadwinner for my family.

Make doa for me that I will do what I set for this year, insyaallah...

ps. when walking, please DO NOT forget to  remember Allah....

Peninsular Malaysia electricity growth 2014- my estimate

I am just updating some stuff with regards to work that I have not updated for a long time.

Peninsular Malaysia electricity growth in my opinion will grow between 3.4%-4.0%.

My best guess is that it will be at 3.6%.

A lot will depend on the reaction of consumers with the new tariff increase starting 1 Jan 2014.

But, I can see the slow growth in the construction sector, where things will be consolidated.

But than again, this is just my best guestimate, Allah Knows Best..

Another London trip.. 2013

I was in London from 25Nov- 4Dec 2013.

It was not planned, but Allah is the ULTIMATE planner.

I never imagined being called upon personally by the Institute of Asset Management (IAM-UK) to be with them in their annual dinner 2013. Not only that, I was called to be seated at the MAIN table.

I was seated beside the President and the coming President in the main table of the Annual Dinner 2013.The dinner was in London Museum at St Paul's, where the mummies reside for many years.

The reason I was called to the main table was because, IAM-UK just opened their chapter in Malaysia in September 2013 and I happened to be the only available office bearer attending the Conference in London. I represent the Malaysia chapter of the Institute.

Malaysia is the FIRST chapter outside the UK for IAM.

I felt honoured to be representing Malaysia.. and I hope the Chapter will be a success..

The next day, I took a walk at Hyde Park London towards the Serpentine. Bring back old memories when I first arrive in London in 1983 (30 yeras ago).

Many things have happened to me and my family since then, but what still remains intact (and I hope it remains inside me until I die) is the FAITH in Allah..

Thank you London for having a chapter in my life...

Be nice to people..eventhough they do mean things to you..

I have now blogged for 5 years. I constantly review my writings and I make sure that I keep on writing on a regular basis.

My main aim when I write is that my followers will benefit from my writing. I write for a purpose.

I wanted to share with my followers that what I felt, and life in general is really, really wonderful.

Do you know that remembering Allah makes your life so awesomely calm and peaceful?
Do you also know that if you have Allah, you need not worry about anything?

Do you know that when someone says mean things about yourself, just be nice to them and thank them for their honest views.

When they continue to be mean, just walk away from them..and don't forget to smile at them as you walk away..

People who are mean to someone, may have problem of their own. Just be kind to them..

Actually, what others say or do is the projection of their own reality, their own dream..

When you can make yourself immune to opinions and actions of others, then you will not be the victim of NEEDLESS sufferings..

People are entitle to their own opinion.. so respect their views.. even if you know that it is not true. No need to be sad and let other people hurt you..

If that person said that the sky was red, it is easy to know what he said was not true. It has NOTHING to do with you and everything to do with HIM.

Anyway my friends, just be kind and nice to people, eventhough they are mean to you. Just imagine that they are the ones who need help. You already have Allah besides you and Rasulullah to give you syafaat.

And do not forget to forgive them and make doa to them...
