today Allah granted my prayer.
wait..I mean every single day Allah did so.
ONE out of all my du'a He granted
what should I say?
thank Allah FIRST
and the others later.
to be able to curve a smile on Mok and Ayoh's faces
and pious friend of mine updated her status
which sounds; Cemerlang itu ujian..kurang cemerlang juga ujian..
in whatever circumstances O Allah, hold me closer to You
I'm calling ALL sisters out there who desire to be a better Muslimah, to spare some time watch this video.
this talk was given during the Twin of Faith convention held last year.
subhanaAllah, greatly touches me.
how about you? :)
steps to become a better Muslimah (basically gist from the talk)
-put tireless effort to read Quran everyday, at least ONE page per day is ok, the MORE is awesome.
Because sometimes that hardest struggles in life appears when we dont read Quran. we skip this routine ,mostly because lack of time and penhayatan. Our behaviour,feeling, actions are closely related with our relatioship with Quran. The days when you dont read al Quran,is the the day when you get easily agitated and irritated. In converse, when you read al Quran, you can easily find the inner peace in soul.
-the best amongst Muslim are the one who are beneficial to others.
feel free to lend any possible help to the needy ones. spread good words and act wisely because let your action become a part of da'wah.
-being born as a Muslim sometimes makes us forget about so many things.so never took for granted for the iman that we have
some of us require to sacrifice tremendously to feel the grace of Islam. most of the reverter passes thorns of road to utter syahadah. So,we must be thankful to inherit Islam from our parents. Always renew our purpose of life, that is to worship Allah and niat for everthing that we do is lillahi rabbil alamin.
-we have to fear of Allah but there must be BALANCE between FEAR and HOPE Allah said, in surah al-araf: 55-56 : us to Call on your Lord humbly and secretly. He does not love those who overstep the limits. Do not corrupt the earth after it has been put right. Call on Himfearfully andeagerly. Allah's mercy is close to the good-doers . He insist us,as His servant to fear of Him in the way to fear from disobeying His orders and never lose hope in Him, as Allah listen to His servants supplication yet He is the BEST planner.
-people started to change when they started to think and questioning themselves, and they found NO answers to some question, then that is the time where we begin SEARCHING for answers.
let's reflect ourselves, there are sooo many questions spinning in our mind. when will we die? what is our exam results? why can't I do this and that? All of these questions are unbearable for us to answers. Thus, this is when we see ourLIMITATION . We are too weak to predict about the answers to our question. And as we search for answers, we should return to Islam, and learn more about Islam to reaffirm our faith.
aim to be much better ahead
let our dependency is ONLY to our creator alone and never despair in Allah
the more we understand the need of us
is to need Allah
