Assalamualaikum. =)

The Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) said: "Do you know who is most generous? God is the Most Generous, then I am most generous to mankind, and the most generous people after me will be those who will acquire knowledge and then disseminate it. They will come on the Day of Resurrection singly, like a ruler."

Al-Tirmidhi, Hadith 93

Past. Present. Future.

Assalamualaikum wbt.

Just a short update.

Sometimes, we think too much. Too much of our past and future, that we don't live our present life in the best way that we should. Worry too much about what happened, and what's going to happen, but not what's happening. How could life be easy then? Blame ourselves for it.

Let's make it easier, stop being hard on your soul. Live today with Imaan, move on and learn from yesterday, to plan for tomorrow. Insya-Allah. :)



P/S : Allergies over, cough comes. It's a reminder isn't it? :)

AtLast!

Alhamdulillah. Subhanallah.

1. At Last.
       Alhamdulillah. Ahhh, I feel so happy that I'm finally, REALLY enrolled myself in a driving academy. :D *stop that WHAT face! Yes, I know I'm 20 and its NOT too late to get my license done okay :P*

2. AtLast.

       Wonder why the second subtopic is Atlas? My head was just popping out weird things at this point of time (late night). But, this sudden idea came to me to write on the Atlas, the world.

       We all know what an atlas is, right? I pretty sure you do. If not, please use Mr. Google for the most precise answer(s). The word "Atlas" itself means a few different things. In medical terms, the Atlas is the first cervical vertebrae (backbone). My Anatomy lecturer once mentioned that it was named after Atlas, the Greek titan whom supported the globe (myths saying its heaven) with his head, neck and hands. Therefore, it is very closely related to the first cervical vertebrae that functions as the main head-neck supporter. So, that's a brief story related to Atlas. After all, nothing beats the power of Allah the Almighty. Allahu Akhbar!

       Atlas in another context of meaning is commonly known as World Atlas, the world map. So, what's with this world atlas yo? Lets do a tiny elaboration on it, shall we? iA :)


       Lets go straight to the point - Al-Quran. That's our Atlas of all the atlas we have in life as a muslim. What do you want to know about the world? Al-Quran has it.
"(He) Who made the earth a bed for you, and the heaven a roof, and caused water to come down from the clouds and therewith brought forth fruits for your sustenance; so do not set up equals to ALLAH, while you know." Surah Al-Baqarah (2) : 22

About the moon and the Sun? Al-Quran has it.
"It is He who made sun a lamp, and moon a light and measured stages so you know number of years and count (of time)." Surah Yunus (10) : 5

What else do the Quran not have? Just say what you want, Quran is the Atlas of Life. Masya-Allah. :D


P/S : Irritated eyes for almost a week now. Can't stop rubbing my eyes every second. Red eyes, non-stop tears filling my eyes. Oh lysozyme don't seem to cure it, nor did Eye More. Kaffarah dosakah Ya Allah? Astaghfirullahal 'azim. ;(

Earthly Realities

Bismillahirahmannirrahim.

Been away from blogging for almost a month to date. Alhamdulillah, Thank Allah for still providing the strength and the heart to brainstorm-write. :)

       So, guess what? I'm home, I'm back in Ampang! :D

3 of 4 of FiFi's kittens. :3
Everything was so exciting at first, but as days passed by (I've only been home for a week) and everything seems to be just saddening. This Malaysian community gave me a "culture shock". It's not like I'm not used to be in such surroundings since I grew up, but it's such a shock to return from a non-muslim country (a non-comfort zone) to a muslim country "by name" (a total comfort zone). I don't think I should further elaborate on the term "by name", you should be clear if you've read and seen enough of your beloved country. Heh. No offense. :)

       Many would say, don't complain too much, stop whining and do your part instead. And my response would be, Complaint and be the change! Nothing is wrong with complaining, if you really want something to change. Complain and action, must come tagging along together. In this point of view, I see ideas coming from the youths as constructive criticisms. The world will be in the hands of the next generation, so lets make our du'a that we, the younger generations, could be the best among the best of the world leaders to guide the people of the nation to taste our beautiful Deen of Islam. Insya-Allah. :)

       Ireland was after all a dock, where we stop to refuel and do a muhasabah on ourselves before we depart back to our homeland, to bring in changes, and next to Yammul Mashyar, where we meet our Rabb. Do we not want to meet Him? I want to! ;)

J.Co! One of the first thing I wanted to have always in KL. ;D
       That's all for today. Insya-Allah will do a follow up post on my trip to Eastern Europe. ;)


P/S : Ya Rabb, give me strength. Let me hold on tight to this path. Do not let me stray, for You are the Almighty, the One. I pray for all of us. Allahu Akhbar! :)
