Hijrah! :D

Assalam. Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim. =)

Our new year is here! Alhamdulillah. Thankful to still be given time to live up to this new year of Islam, 1433 Hijrah. Happy New Year, Happy Awal Muharram! ;D

   So, as usual, every new year there's always new wishes/targets are being set. :)

New year, new hope, new me, new you, new us. Insya-Allah. :)

   All I want for myself is, to be a better person. Still in progress. Step by step. Insya-Allah. :)

P/S : Exam in a week's time, lets work hard. May Allah ease. ;)

Assalam. Owh hey peeps! :D

   Things don't always go your way. Your whims and fancies aren't always satisfied, never will be, forever. Today's your lucky day, but perhaps not tomorrow. Only God knows. All these abstract things in life could only be understood after having to go through that peak point in life. No pain, no gain. Thus, every second of that hardship is PRICELESS. The most valuable thing money can't buy. Allah knows best. =)

   After all, looking back and reflecting on what you have been through so far, says much on how far you've traveled through life and how much priceless experiences have you picked up. To me, there are lots more ahead, even more challenging ones. So, here's when the RISK factor comes in. Being a risk taker is something exciting, adrenaline pumping (sounds like my F1 tagline. Haha). Without risk taking, life is dull. Living in the world of the same old daily routine is lame and it'll surely bore you to death. So, come on friends, get to know new stuffs everyday, make new friends, talk to a stranger, do something out of the norm. Be adventurous once in awhile! :D

   Take advantage of what you have right in front of you and you shall not have regrets. Heee. :D

P/S : Be grateful and never forget to take your chances. Turn imaginations into reality! Insya-Allah may Allah give us barakah in our life. Amin! :)

Islamic Etiquette.

Assalamualaikum again for the second time this morning. Heee. :D

In this post, I would like to share a little bit on Islamic Etiquette, which I stumbled upon a few days ago on this website called "My First Steps in Islam". Here's the link to Islamic Etiquette. It's very interesting to get to know the little things that we should and shouldn't do in the everyday life. :)

   So, I decided to share on a few of those over here. Don't hesitate to add on if you know some other important points. ;D

  1. Say Bismillah (in the name of Allah) before eating/drinking, and say Alhamdulillah (thank you Allah) upon it. Eat with your right hand, and eat what's in front of you. Islam emphasizes on modesty, thus eat modestly.\
  2. Never criticize on food. Be grateful of what you have. If you don't like it, leave it intact, let other people have it instead. You may be the lucky ones with food, imagine how many more in other parts of the world whom are on food starvation. And, remember to not waste on food! Don't take what you can't finish.
    "Indeed, the wasteful are brothers of the devils, and ever has Satan been to his Lord ungrateful." Al-Isra : 27 
  3. Supress yawning. Either by covering the mouth with your right palm or the back of your left palm or make a fist out of your left palm. Remember to not make sounds out of the yawn as Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) quoted : “Yawning is from the Shaytaan. When one of you feels like yawning, let him suppress it as much as he can. And if one of you yawns making sound, “Aahh!” Shaytaan laughs.” (Bukhari #3115)
  4. Say Alhamdulillah upon sneezing. The Prophet (pbuh) said : “When one of you sneezes, let him say, ‘Alhamdulillaah,’ his brother or companion should say to him, ‘Yarhamuk-Allahu,’ and the one who sneezed should say, ‘Yahdeekumullaah wa yuslihu baalakum.’ ” (Bukhari #5870)
  5. Do not burp out loud in public. It is seen as non-ethical. Everyone knows burping out loud is not the nicest thing to be heard/seen right? So, I need not elaborate on this. :)
  6. Upon sleeping, make du'a to Allah : Doa Tidur. Sleep laying to your right side, and if possible, face the kiblah sleeping. بِاسْمِكَ اللّهُمَّ أَحْيَاوَأَمُوتُ : Bismikallahumma ahya wa amutu [With Your name I live and I die]. Upon waking up, say : اَلْحَمْدُ ِللهِ الَّذِى أَحْيَانَا بَعْدَمَا أَمَاتَنَا وَإِلَيْهِ النُّشُورُ : Alhamdulillahil ladzi ahyana ba’da ma amatana wailaihin nusyur [All praise is due to Allah, Who gives us live after He has caused us to die and to Him will be the resurrection].
  7. Upon leaving your home, say ‘Bismillaahi, tawakkaltu ‘ala Allahi, laa hawla wa laa quwwata illaa billaah.’ This is further elaborated in my previous post Tawakkal. And it does not only apply to leaving homes, it do apply upon our daily life too. Tawakkal is the act upon someone or something to place faith and confidence, and it directly refers to Allah. After having to do your best in something, you leave it to Allah to decide what's the best outcome of it. Insya-Allah, He knows best. And my dad always practice the habit of versing Ayatul Kursi (1:255) every time leaving home. Insya-Allah, May Allah protect us. =)

P/S : Really hope this helps. Hee. Insya-Allah. Lets share what we know! ;D

Bismillah. =)

Assalam blog readers. =)

   Everything we do must begin with Bismillah, in the name of Allah. =)

Bismillah ir-Rahman ir-Rahim. In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, Most Compassionate. (Dengan nama Allah, yang Maha Pemurah, Maha Penyayang/Mengasihani)

   Yes, it is a simple word, but truly it brings a significant meaning to every action we do.

   Had some spare time, so figured out to google on it. Look what I've found about Bismillah.

Using these basic roots, the term bismillah might be translated as :
- By means of the very essence of God
- For the glory of our Creator
- With the light of the One
- With the guidance of The Divine
- As an instrument of the One
- In harmony with Divine Presence
   As we begin our daily chores, say Bismillah, because everything we do on earth is for One purpose, that is for Allah. Insya-Allah. May Allah give His blessing. =)

P/S : Add on anything if you wish to. And correct me if I'm wrong. I'm still new in these things. May Allah give us guidance through life. Insya-Allah. ;)

Assalam. Sorry. This is not going to be much positive post at the moment. =S



   Medicine is hard as expected. Yeah, it is. Sometimes, I do think I don't fit in well. "Perhaps, this isn't my thing. Perhaps I should have stick on Asasi and try my luck on Mechy instead. Medic? So not me." I really am hating this feeling, this sucks to the core, dude! ='(

   I've been figuring out ways to increase, at least a little, just a little of my marks on the tests. Guess what? All those hard work apparently are NOT WORKING. No changes seen. Hypothesis accepted. I'm born average. Just some ordinary girl whose brain aren't really expanding and emo-ness over-rides. Sometimes, stuffs just make me feel stupid, really stupid. As if I have a brain as small as the size of a pea. Grrrrrreat! =.='

   Yeah, people will say I am not grateful of what I've been given. No way. I'm grateful to be given this golden chance of travelling this far to Ireland. But, do you understand the pressure I have? No you won't, because you aren't in my shoes. Things are complicated in my own ways. Emotions, feelings, studies, homesickness, tiredness, stress, peer pressure, workloads, time constraints. What more could you get yourself soaked into? I've tried almost everything to distract my emotions from being so high up top. Not much had worked, except for crying. Sad case. T-T

   Jogging comes in right. If a jog doesn't work, ice-creams would help ease better. Endorphin in chocolates are just temporary substitutes. After all, the best I could do was to turn to Him. Al-Quran is the ultimate healer of all, yes. But, sometimes things aren't that simple. Hormonal imbalance would cost you mind disruptions. RedBull is one of the cause. #.#

   Okay. That's it. I've spilled everything. Almost everything. Don't worry. I'm okay, still smiling despite of the immunity against my own stupidity. *fake smile* Duhhh. This is normal I guess? Hmmm. Insya-Allah, I pray I will not fail any of the subjects. I hope the RedBull consumptions wasn't just a waste. Hope so. =S

P/S : Sorry for the incredibly crappy emotion spill, I just needed a place to spill it all out. May Allah ease my burdens. May Allah forgive my mistakes. May Allah give me better days ahead. May Allah do the same to you readers too. Insya-Allah. =')
