Teguhlah wahai jiwa.

"Ketenangan & kebahagiaan adalah hembusan dari langit...diturunkan ke lubuk hati orang beriman...mereka tetap berhati teguh di kala orang lain dalam kegoncangan."

-Syed Qutb-

Lately, weakness seems to creep into me. An old habit in which I've triumphed over and surprisingly so comes knocking at my door again. It truly is disappointing but as I said before we need to love ourselves moderately remember? In this case, not too little till we wish to be someone matter how disapponted in myself I can get.

There's no point in wanting to be another person, what we should be is a better us. What I should be is a better me.

'Mujahadah itu pahit, kerana syurga itu manis.'

Indeed that's true. I do believe that when there is something that we must do and it pains us ever so much coz we feel it to be so difficult and so hard on's because the reward for it is so great. Beyond whatever greatness we can imagine.

As humans we are weak...but that does not mean we have no strength at all. Strength is none but Allah's and with His love and mercy He gives us strength. Sometimes strengths we never thought we had in us. How loving Allah is for giving us things we don't even ask for.

I can't let this old habit of mine come creeping back into me. I can't be weak and insyaAllah I won't be weak.
Teguhlah wahai jiwa...teguhlah. Teguhlah demi Allah.

Who are you?

Salam alayk~

A friend shared this with me today and I want to share it with you :)

"I am a traveler seeking the truth, a human searching for the meaning of humanity and a citizen seeking dignity, freedom, stability and welfare under the shade of Islam. I am a free man who is aware of the purpose of his existence and who proclaims: "Truly, my prayer and my sacrifice, my living and my dying are all for Allah, the Lord of the worlds; no partner has He. This, am I commanded and I am of those who submit to His Will." This is who I am. Who are you?"

(Hassan al-Banna)

So simply said ey? How wonderful it is to be able to say this and mean it. To have these words come out of you straight away without you having to structure it as it is apart of your soul. It is who you are. May he be blessed by Allah always.

Cara Mendampingi Allah dan Meraih KecintaanNya

Salam Alayk semua :)

Dalam sibuk-sibuk nak exam ni saya rasa elok lah kita berehat sebentar dan mengambil iktibar daripada hadis di atas iaitu hadis ke-38 daripada hadis 40 Imam Nawawi ^_^ jom!

Daripada Abu Hurairah r.a, Rasulullah s.a.w. bersabda: Sesungguhnya Allah Taala berfirman:

"Sesiapa yang memusuhi orang yang setia kepadaKu, maka Aku mengisytiharkan perang terhadapnya. Tiada seseorang hambaKu yang menghampiriKu dengan sesuatu yang lebih Aku cintai daripada ia menunaikan perkara fardhu ke atas dirinya. Hambaku sentiasa menghampiriKu dengan ibadat sunat sehingga Aku mencintainya. Tatkala Aku telah mencintainya, Akulah sebagai pendengarannya yang ia mendengar dengannya, sebagai penglihatannya yang ia melihat dengannya, sebagai tangannya yang ia bertindak dengannya, dan sebagai kakinya yang ia berjalan dengannya. Sekiranya ia meminta kepadaKu, pasti Aku berikan kepadanya, dan sekiranya ia memohon perlindungan kepadaKu nescaya Aku melindunginya."

-Riwayat al-Bukhari

Alhamdulillah...damai terasa hati apabila membaca hadis ini. Tidakkah kita mahu meraih cinta Allah? Sudah tentu mahu! kan?! ^_^

Lets run to as fast as we can for His hands are open wide for us. It's up to us to either be in His embrace or not. Don't just sit there, RUN! :P

As a friend of mine quoted, "If you can't run, walk. If you can't walk, crawl. If you can't crawl then do all means KEEP MOVING!"
