We must understand the Quran.

Quran is in Arabic. There is a specific reason for it to be revealed in classical Arabic.

We must learn Arabic in order to understand the meaning of Allah's words.

Here is a video emphasising on the matter

Worst flood in Malaysia.... Dec 2014

This year, the flood situation is unlike other years. There were way too many people affected by the flood.

I can imagine the suffering of people who are affected by the flood. Their homes being filled with water and their belongings destroyed because of the water.

When the flood finally subside, they have to clean their houses and some of the things can no longer be used. They have to spend money and effort during this trying times.

I take this opportunity to send my condolences to the flood victims. They have to bear patience. Use this calamity to make doa to Allah so that Allah make it easy for us all. If a calamity befalls us, and the result is that it draws us nearer to Allah, this should be considered as something good.

Allah made the hardship to draw us closer to Him. Take this golden opportunity to be nearer to Allah.

I thank Allah for HIS mercy and  protection. He has given to me and hopefully draw me closer to Allah azzawajal.

Ya Allah, please make me from the people who are grateful to you in whatever circustances be it good or bad. Ya Rabb, please protect me from the persuasion of Syaitan and from people who also acts like syaitan.

Ya rabb, please give strength to the people who are suffering from floods and make it easy for them. Make them be nearer to you Ya Allah... Aamiin

About Michael Jackson and Whitney Houston

What has Michael Jackson and Whitney Houston have in common?

They all are people who make other people happy. They are very successful people and made a lot of money making people happy.

But they themeselves are not happy. They took drugs in order to forget about their problems. But drugs did not help, in fact made the situation worst. In the end, they died because of too much taking drugs.

Very talented and highly gifted people who ended up dying on drug overdose. Pity them..

We can take a very important lesson from them.

We can make people happy. In fact we should make people happy with our good deeds.

But we also must make ourselves happy. There is no better way to be happy than to remember Allah.
It is very difficult to really express happiness when remembering Allah.

No doubt that syaitan is making extra effort to these kind of people to make them further away from Allah.

The entertainment business is full of activities that make you further and further away from Allah. But that will not stop people to make dakwah and pray to Allah to give all mankind hidayah.

Allah is the ALL KNOWING. We just make effort and doa. Everything will turn out good.

Put our whole trust to Allah alone..

May Allah grant us all (His slaves) forgiveness

Some awesome quotation from brother Nouman(2)

Your sin is NOT GREATER than Allah's MERCY

Do not expect from others, expect ONLY from Allah

The people who test your patience are a blessing, without them you cannot practice patience

We live in a society that wake our kids for school but not for fajr

When you talk, you are repeating what you already know, but if you listen, you may learn something new

If you love someone, then commit. If you don't commit, then your claim of love is not real

Do not force religion on your family, show them the beauty of religion through you own sincere practice

The signs of a beautiful person is that he always sees beauty in others

Hurt me with truth, but never comfort me with lie

You have 2 friends; 1. Allah 2. those who reminds you of Allah

You don't have to insult other people's opinion to make your opinion heard

What men should know.. is that a woman who truly loves you will be angry at you for so many things, but will stick with you 

Some awesome quotations from brother Nouman

The more knowledge (of Deen) you have, the more humble you should be, instead of becoming more judgemental

People have no idea how true the promise of Allah is. Put your trust in Allah. HE will see you through

When you find yourself in a position to help someone, be happy. Because Allah is answering that person's prayer through you

When you see someone not religious, remember you were once on the edge of fire, and Allah guided you. Arrogance will wipe away goodness

You cannot change someone's behaviour. You can only remind, and hope that Allah will change him

If someone corrects you and you feel offended, then you have EGO problem

Modern psychology focuses on fixing people, Islamic psychology focuses on showing the perfection in our creation

Having dunya is not the problem, loving it is...

While you hate your life because you cannot get get what you wanted, someone is wishing to have a life like yours

If we are TRULY the people of Alhamdulillah, we would not find the time, energy and motivation to complain

When you are going through hard times, and you wonder where Allah is... just remember, the teacher is always quiet during a test

Islam is not "we are better than you". Islam is "let me show you something better for you"

When we have lack of respect for others, remember Allah honours ALL human beings

My 3rd trip to Auckland to visit sister and daughter(2)

Thursday 27Nov. I woke up early to follow my sister to her workplace in Central Auckland. By 9am, she dropped me at Albert Park and I walked (my usual path) to the Domain and Auckland Museum.
I waited until 11.30am for my whole family to arrive at the Domain. We took pictures and talk. At 12pm, we slowly walked to Food Court in Queen's Street to have lunch at an Indon halal restaurant. I ate soo much that what I burned when I walked in the morning were replaced by the amount of food I ate for lunch.

After lunch, we headed again to the Domain where we park our car (3 hours free!). This time we are too full to even walk. We took the bus and drove straight to the north side of Auckland at a suburb called Davenport. Nice little town . We found a much sorted Milk Chocolate in a supermarket which was just being refilled. The cashier limit only one bottle for every customer! Each of us bought one seperately!

We climbed the Mount Victoria and looked at the sea surrounding Auckland City. There was a fort up on the mountain and the scenery is breathtaking. We took many pictures!!

Friday 28Nov. A rest day for all of us... At 1.30pm I drove to Pakuranga mosque (Majd Abu Bakar) to perform Jumaat prayers. The rest of the family went shopping at Sylvia Park. We had a good halal lunch. At night, we went to sister Norleen's house for a very nice dinner. We came back almost midnight!

Sat 29Nov. I went with my sister to Manukau City as her charity organisation (Fatimah Foundation) has a function. A very pleasant and friendly man came and shook hands with me. Later I found out from my brother that he is Len Brown the Mayor of Auckland! What a contrast to the situation in Malaysia!

Then we proceed to go shopping at Victoria Market, where you can open a small corner shop for a small amount! Nice atmosphere.

Then me and eldest daughter Aliah went to the beach in Kare-kare together with her friends from Aussie. What a fantastic beach. There was also a waterfall just before the beach front. All praise be to Allah for creating this beautiful world for us (His slaves) to thank Him.

Sunday 30Nov. Packing day for me. My flight to KL is at 2.30pm. By 12.45pm, I was at the airport. Thank you to my sister and daughter for having me in Auckland. This 3rd time was as good as the previous 2 visits. My wife and 2 daughters also stay for another 2.5 weeks and I travel back to KL alone. There was a 1 hour delay and the airline gave NZD12 for me to have a quick lunch.

What a wonderful trip this is. Alhamdulillah and thank you to sister and daughter, thank you Allah....   

My 3rd trip to Auckland to visit sister and daughter

I spent my holiday this year in New Zealand.

This is my 3rd time in New Zealand and I have full respect for this country. No wonder they are good in rugby!

I arrive in Auckland early Monday morning 24 Nov. My sister & brother-in-law came to fetch me and family at the airport.\

They brought us to their home in Coppins Road, Mount Wellington. The whole day we rested after 11 hours of flight. In the evening, around 6pm, we drove to my favourite beach in Auckland, Mission bay. Had the traditional fish-and-chips and overlooking Rangitoto island. Nice!

Tuesday, I went to Auckland to meet up with old acquantance. His name is Christ Day. I met him on a flight from Auckland -KL in 2012 and we talked about some common interests. In the afternoon, I walked towards Otahuhu.. wonderful walk.

In the evening, the whole family went up Mount Wellington and took pictures. Very very nice!

Wednesday, all of us went on a day trip to Roturua. Roturua is situated 210KM from Auckland. I drove through HW1-HW2-HW27-HW24-HW8-HW5.

We started at 7.30am and reached Roturua at 10.00am. When we started from Auckland, it was raining but when we reached Roturua the shine began to shine. Subhanallah.

Coincidently when we reached the SkyPark, I heard some called "Ayah.." It was my eldest daughter!
She was with her friends from Australia. We hug, but she told me she had to go. I said " See you in Auckland". We climbed the mountain on a cable car called "Gondola". On the way down, the kids used the LUGE while I took a calm walk down scenic route down the mountain.

We then had lunch at Kebab store (Just Kebab). Then off we went to Agrodome for the Farm tour. Nice tour feeding the sheeps. And watching how they sheer the sheep.

We then spent time at the lake and at Kuirau Park where there are many hot springs. Prayed zuhr & Asr before heading back to Auckland. The sun was still up at 7.30pm when we started our journey back to Auckland. Reached at 10.00pm and feeling very tired but extremely happy!
