Don't be sad/grieve

Lately I have been reflecting on my life so far and what I have achieved.

There are many things that have happened to me that are good and bad as well. They all make life so very interesting.

There are many people that I know. Good and bad ones. Again these people decorated my life.

Sometimes I feel sad for a certain things that has happened to me. But wait a minute.... we are Muslims & Mukmin.

We shall not grieve.
We have Allah with us. In Quran there are 13 verses that emphasis on this:

Baqarah: 38, 62, 112, 262, 274, 277 (6 ayats)
Imran:170 (1 ayat)
Maidah: 69 (1 ayat)
An'Am: 48 (1 ayat)
A'raf: 35 (1 ayat)
Yunus: 62 (1 ayat)
Zumar: 61 (1 ayat)
Ahqaf: 13 (1 ayat)

The meaning "no fear need they have, and neither shall they grieve"

A true Mukmin will not be grieve as ALL in this world and the skies belongs to Allah. Even our own body belongs to Allah and we shall return to Him eventually.

It is okay to grieve for a while as we are humans with emotions. But life goes on..

I began to smile by myself. Indeed Allah makes us feel sad sometimes to draw us closer to Him. Thank Allah for drawing us closer to Him with His Wisdom.

Whatever happens has its purpose. If we can channel back ALL that has happened to Allah, we truly are His slaves.

Ya Rabb, guide us to your straight path.

Aamiin.

I lost my collection of thumb drives

The whole collection of my thumb drives that I collected since 2005 was stolen during the period where my office was under renovation.

Almost all of the thumb drives I got it for free when attending seminars/workshops.












They range from 0.25GB to 8GB.

I felt sad as they are my collection... it means a lot to me as I love my collection.

Wait a minute. This reminds me of life.

Life is a gift from Allah. Allah is my Master. He gives it to His slaves whatever He wishes. He takes whatever He wishes.

Just like my collection of thumb drives, they are gifts that I got. When it is lost, just let go, as it is not yours to feel sad about.

Everything in the skies and the earth belongs to Allah.

Remember Him always and we will be at peace All the time.

Ya Rabb, make me and all of us your slaves that you are pleased upon.

We need your Compassion & your Blessing

Aamiin

Tribute to Surau Salahuddin community Section 14 PJ

I have been living in Section 14 Petaling Jaya, Selangor since 1969, almost the entire part of my life.

This posting is dedicated to the community that I lived.

There is this Surau Salahuddin that I normally go to perform my daily prayers. It started operation in 1972. It has been around for 44 years now.

There were many of  the original members that have passed away since. I cannot mention all of them. I can mention only a few that is still around and are very old.

They used to me very young during the seventies when I was a kid.

Thank you my community for being a close knit family and helping each other during good and bad times.

May Allah reward us all. Aamiin
