Worry ends when faith begins :)

Salam alayk brothers & sisters ^_^

Just before I go off to class here's a song I'd like to share with all of you. May we begin our day with a great start and may Allah always be in our hearts. Ameen~

To witness... to spread the word, the feeling, the understanding, the whole deal until another feels the same way as though he or she has witnessed the same thing.

That's what witnessing means, it's not merely seeing something with your two eyes and be done with it. No...When you are a witness, you have a responsibility to transmit truth. You have a duty to fulfil. A duty our prophet Rasulullah s.a.w has been doing all his life. So did his companions, and those who came after them. A duty to do da'wa. To do da'wa for the sake of Allah.

What is this truth that we must spread? What is the ultimate truth?

The truth that Allah is the One and Only God...
The truth of His deen. The understanding of our purpose, our journey & our destination.

InsyaAllah I'll write more on this soon. Here's a nasyid by Dawud Wharnsby. Do take it as food for thought and also for your heart. ^_^ Salam alayk~

It begins with you.

Salam alayk brothers and sisters ^_^

Alhamdulillah, all praise to Allah. I just got back from a program in Meath and I'd like to share a video that my sisters shared with me :) It's very simple and straight forward. So true that it went straight to my heart.

:) That was something wasn't it? Subhanallah. Even without understanding the language, the message is universal and clear. In this video what they're singing is basically 'You go and all of india will go with you.' Simply said, it's important for you to take the first step coz with that, the rest will follow insyaAlllah. That's all it takes.

The first step is the hardest. Look at that boy. Logically he would never have been able to move that tree away from the road but he did try to anyway right? And it wasn't like he was fooling around knowing he can't do it, he tried his hardest! He pushed with all his might! And his action sparked other people to the same. Doing something although it seems impossible. We could really apply that in our life don't you think? :)

Fretting about things happening around us, putting the blame on others and in the end just complaining without a single act being done towards solving the problem. Where does that bring you? No where.

On the road to jannah, ask for strength from Allah. Spreading His word is the duty of every muslim. Don't wait for others, you start. It begins with you!

What's that you ask? One of my favourite verses in the Quran. Az-Zumar verse 53 ^_^

Salam alayk my brothers and sisters :)

Alhamdulillah, alhamdulillah for today, right at this moment, Allah has still given you and I life. May this moment be one full of remembrance of Him insyaAllah and may He be in our hearts, our thoughts, and our every being every step of the way. I'm off to class shortly but before that here's a video I'd like to share. It's quite a long one but I assure you that you'd love it. I know I do and insyaAllah hopefully I get to start my day well. May Allah give you time to watch :)

Regarding the verse I mentioned, let me just write it down here.

'Katakanlah, 'Wahai hamba-hambaKu yang melampaui batas terhadap diri mereka sendiri! Janganlah kamu berputus asa dari rahmat Allah. Sesungguhnya Allah mengampuni dosa-dosa semuanya. Sungguh Dialah yang Maha Pengampun, Maha Penyayang. Dan kembalilah kamu kepada TuhanMu, dan berserah dirilah kepadaNya sebelum datang azab kepadamu, kemudian kamu tidak dapat ditolong.'
[Az-Zumar 39:53-54]

Yeah I added the next verse too. This video made me see the importance of it collectively than on it's own. You'd understand if you watch. hee :) Besides, the whole Quran should be viewed and understood collectively as a whole and not seperate. InsyaAllah, slowly we'd be able to reach that kind of understanding.

Watch with your heart all right? Bismillah :)

Pick up where I left.

That's what I need to do and not only that, I should run forward as fast as my heart would take me. Run faster, much faster than before.

Salam alayk my brothers & sisters ^_^

MasyaAllah. How important it is to have people around you to remind you, to bring you back. Although you might not realise what you've done, I thank you from the bottom of my heart for opening my eyes once again. Alhamdulillah, Alhamdulillah :)

It touches me, to see you wanting happiness for others. It touches me to see you care so much and somehow it is as though I could feel the sincerity of your thoughts. How what you feel is genuine and true. Alhamdulillah, for Allah has given such capability to you and may He continue choosing you and protecting you always. Ameen~

See? It's true that akhlak has an effective way of reaching a person's heart and this of course reminds me dearly of our beloved prophet Rasulullah s.a.w. How fortunate to be a person who reminds others of Rasulullah don't you think? :) The example & mercy to us all.

It's not too late. Not yet. For me to catch up and run. As for you, don't you dare fall behind. We're going to the same place aren't we? Although we go seperately but insyaAllah we'll meet in the end. Let's go! ^_^

Sometimes it feels like everything is crushing down and you want to understand and be truthful to yourself. What if truth is something you can't bear? What if you're a coward pretending to have courage? What if the one you yourself?

I guess the past weeks haven't been so light on me but that was then. This is me now taking charge and wanting to break free from this feeling insyaAllah. The world around me is moving so fast and I can't afford to stay put here. Although sometimes in order to see things clearly, one has to stay still to allow facts to sink in. Stay still to think and understand. But after that what one should do is to get up and take action and we need strength for that. Strength that only Allah alone can give and that we must ask for in order to get it.

I apologize for not writing. Truth is as I have been saying so many times before there are so many things I wish to share that have yet to be posted. But that's okay, we'll take it a step at a time :) I don't regret the days that have gone by without updates here. I've learnt not to regret on what has passed. Not saying that it's easy but just to strengthen our belief when we say we trust that whatever Allah has destined is what's best. Yes, I believe that and it's time that we act out what we believe in.

Have you ever wondered why you act so foolishly against your own principles? I do think of that and the answer I come up with is because I let my guard down and let my nafs take over. And we all know that nothing good ever comes when your nafs is what's driving you. Astaghfirullah. I take it as a lesson from Allah. The fact that whatever will I have is from Him and Him alone and that I deserve no credit. Also the fact that one can never be too proud of his or her principles because the only One to help you abide to it is Allah, not yourself.

It's a shame and I do feel ashamed but there is no use in fretting about it now. What I can do is to be stronger than I was before. So long as Allah knows, it matters less what other people think. I trust if I mend things with Him, He'll take care of it better than I ever could. I wonder if any of this makes sense to you. Haha...perhaps not :P But that's okay, I felt I had to write this anyway. Let it be a start so that I write more soon ^_^

Do remember that Allah controls everything and everything happens at His will whether you like it or not. Stop dreaming that you can oppose that coz the reality is you can't. Submit to Him, devote yourself to Him in every way you can. InsyaAllah, may the reality of your life then be worth while~
