Life is about TRUSTING our feeling and TAKING CHANCES, LOSING and FINDING HAPPINESS, APPRECIATING the memories and LEARNING from the past... Let's together ask ALLAH to help us for not wasting the life we have.

In The Name of Allah, The Most Gracious The Most Merciful. He is the one who never ever forget to guide the humans in their lives though they always forget to be with Him (obey His order).

With His love, He sent us something as the guidance for His slaves and that is the du’a. Du’a is something very important in the muslims life. Why not? Du’a is the weapon for us. And it is the bond of the relationship between the Lord and His servants. So, it is absolutely not good if we stop praying to Allah. If we stop praying, we’ll lose Allah’s blessing. So, let’s raise our hands and du’a to the end.

And your Lord said: “Invoke Me, (i.e. believe in My Oneness (and ask Me for anything) I will respond to your (invocation), Verily, those who scorn My Worship, they will surely live n hell in humiliation!” (The Quran: Ghafir: 60)

Praise be to our Lord…

There is no such thing of simple life. Everything in life is tough and NOBODY will face it successfully EXCEPT those who believe (mukminun). Cuz the believers always bring their faith no matter where they are. Those who have faith means they have connection with Allah so they’ll refer (du’a) everything to the Al-Mighty in everything they are facing. But know what?? Absolutely Allah loves the mukmins who pray for their selves AND the others than those who pray only for themselves. So, besides praying for ourselves, why not we pray for others? The key to get du’as from many people and many angels is from making du’a for other muslims.

Whenever you make a du’a for other muslims without their knowledge, the angel will say ‘and the same to you.’

“The du’a that Allah answered faster is the one that made by one muslim for another in his absence.”(Abu Dawud & Tarmizi)

But do remember this...

The Prophet (saws) has said in a Hadith narrated by Abu Hurayrah: Make Du’a and be assured of being answered, and know that Allah does not answer a Du’a from a careless heart, which is not concentrating.

And Allah knows everything…

Oh Allah...

"A strong woman is the one who fells deeply, and loves fiercely. Her tears flow just as abundantly as her smile. A strong woman is both soft and powerful, she is both practical and spiritual. A strong woman in her essence is gift to the whole world"
(From FAQ site)

Praise be to You, Allah…

O Allah... I really wanted to be strong. But Allah.. I cannot be as powerful as I wanted without Your help. Without You, I have nothing cuz You are EVERYTHING. Please Allah, I need Your help.

O Allah... If I cry, please let me cry for You. If I smile, please let me smile for You. If I'm happy, please let me be happy for You. If I am disappointed, please let me be it with You.

O Allah... I'm begging You. No matter what, please do not let me stop helping others. Well, You just let me know that the key to be happy is by helping people. And yes, it is. So please, don't ever let me stop lending my hands for others. I wanted to be a strong lady so I really do hope You'll let me. Please Allah...

Allah.... for the clouds You've gave us, for the stars You've lend to us, for the wealth You've bestowed on us, for the life You’ve conferred for us, for the enjoyable You’ve passed on us, for the breath You've handed over us, for the night sky You've decorated it to make us smile again, for the people You’ve let us know no matter who they are, for the love You’ve overflowed to take place as Your guidance, for everything You’ve gave us ‘til we couldn’t tell, thanks for all of it.

Allah knows best

Allah knows what's best for us
So why should we complain?
We always want the sunshine
But He knows there must be rain
We always want the laughter
And the merriment of cheer
But our hearts loose their tenderness
If we never shed a tear
Allah tests us often
With suffering and with sorrow
He tests us not to punish us
But to help us meet tomorrow
For growing trees are strengthened
If they withstand the storm
And the sharpness of the chisel
Gives the marble grace and form
Allah tests us often
And for every bit of pain
Provided we are patient
Is followed by rich grain
So whenever we are down
And everything is going wrong
It is just Allah's way
To make our spirit strong

I just wanna share this poem with everybody who lose hope in their life. Well maybe, including me. Come on, just believe this.... What happened to us is just for our goodness. Of course, it is not what we call life if there is no test. So, learn to be strong to face it.

Do people think that they will be left because they say: "We believe (in Allah)," and will not be tested? (The Quran, Al- 'Ankaboot: 2)

You see, everybody in this world will be tested and of course the muslims will be tested the most. Having those damn tribulation doesn't mean that Allah didn't love us but that is one of the prove that shows He cares about us.

Things aren’t always as they seem. Ummu Musa was told to throw her son in the river, Prophet Yusuf was left for dead in a well, Maryam delivered a child alone, Aishah was accused of a terrible sin, Prophet Yunus was swallowed by a whale, Prophet Ibrahim was thrown in the fire, Prophet Muhammad SAW lost the love of his life Khadijah, and Ummu Salamah thought no one could be better than Abu Salamah. (Peace be upon them all). Yet look at how it turned out for them in the end... So don’t worry, Allah has a plan for you. Just put your trust in Him so you'll be ok. Insha-Allah...

Lastly, Allah knows everything.

Who He loves?

I read something beautiful on an Islamic Q & A site last night, somebody asked how do we know when Allah loves us and is pleased with us, what are the signs? Obviously it caught my attention and I went on reading, it is great to know there are some signs that we can look for to know if Allah is pleased with us or not. So, I am going to share it with you here in my blog. Actually, this is the straight answer from the Islamic Q & A site. I just hope we together will read it and take it to our life. Insha-Allah…

Praise be to Allah.

Among the signs that the Lord is pleased with His servant is that He guides him to do good deeds and avoid haram things. This is proved by the words of Allah:

“While as for those who accept guidance, He increases their guidance and bestows on them their piety” [Muhammad: 17]

“As for those who strive hard in Us (Our Cause), We will surely guide them to Our paths (i.e. Allah’s religion — Islamic Monotheism)” [al-‘Ankaboot: 69]

But if a person is hindered from doing good deeds and avoiding haram things, then that is a sign that Allah is not pleased with him. Allah has also explained in His Book that the sign of His being pleased with His slave and of His guidance is that He opens his heart to true guidance and true faith.

And the sign of misguidance and being far from the Straight Path is distress and constriction in the heart. Allah says (interpretation of the meaning):

“And whomsoever Allah wills to guide, He opens his heart to Islam; and whomsoever He wills to send astray, He makes his heart closed and constricted, as if he is climbing up to the sky. Thus Allah puts the wrath on those who believe not” [al-An’ am: 125]

Ibn 'Abbas said, commenting on this verse: “And whomsoever Allah wills to guide…” He opens his heart to tawheed and belief therein.Tafseer Ibn Katheer, 2/175

Another sign of Allah’s love for His slave and His being pleased with him is that He makes him beloved to His slaves. Al-Bukhaari (3209) and Muslim (2637) narrated from Abu Hurairah that the Prophet Muhammad said:

“When Allah loves a person, He calls out to Jibreel: ‘Allah loves So and so,’ so Jibreel loves him. Then Jibreel calls out to the people of heaven, ‘Allah loves So and so, so love him.’ So the people of heaven love him and he finds acceptance on earth.”

Al-Nawawi said: “and he finds acceptance on earth” means that people love him and are pleased to see him, so their hearts incline towards him. It says in another report: “and he finds love on earth.”

And Allah knows best.

Allah is the creator

This blog is not big enough to include all the miracles of the Holy Quran. So now, I am just gonna write here something simple to share.

Dr. Zakir Naik from India was once giving a lecture on Quran and Modern Science where thousands of people attended. One of the participants asked the following question to him after he finished his lecture: “How do you prove that God exists to a person who is an atheist?” He answered thus: If you see a plane flying by in the sky which is unique from all other planes, and you wish to know the mechanisms behind how this plane is flying, who would you ask first? Of course, you would ask the creator of this plane first because he knows all the engineering involved in it. Similarly, who would know the engineering of this universe before anyone else knew? The Creator of the universe of course. Therefore, Allah, the Creator of EVERYTHING, has given us in the Quran such information which no one knew when the Quran was revealed to prove that there is a God who created everything and that He must be obeyed.

Dear readers, you did not come to this life with your own will. Also, you will not leave this world with your own will. Then why live this life according to your own will? A Muslim is he who submits himself to the will of Allah. So, lets pray to Him for whatever we are up to cuz He is everything and He knows everything. Why not we together ask Him to give us the best cuz Allah is the Creator and He knows every single thing about what He created.

“O you who believe! Fear Allah as He should be feared. [Obey Him, be thankful to Him, and remember Him always], and die not except in a state of Islam [as Muslims (with complete submission to Allah)].”(The Quran, 3:102.)

Allah, this is my day

This day is my new life. I am 18. And I call this day is mine. When I woke up in the morning and finished making me ready for my day, Ahmad came to me and hugged me as if he no longer meet me for a year. I don’t know why he did that but I didn’t care. I kissed his cheeks and head then I said proudly, “Ahmad, today is my birthday!” He gave me a big smile and hugged me again. Then he sang a Happy Birthday song for me. I never thought he’d do that cuz I thought he didn’t really understand what birthday means. Man, he is just a 5-year-old boy. That really surprised me. Then, I sang to him back, “Today is my day. Today is my birthday. Happy happy birthday to me…” Actually, that is the ‘Magic English’ song and I know he like it so much. He started giggling to me. He said I’m cute to be like a little lady then he kissed my nose.
When I went downstairs and started my routine like always, I realized something just began to make me sad. Of course I do. My dad was going to work, my brothers and sister were having a school time and my mother was going to be busy again like always. Then yeah, I AM sad again. I just hope they’d get any damn day-out just for me. I started to felt like wanted to cry. I said to myself that I wanted to go to Matri cuz there, I‘d celebrate this day with my friends. Yes, I did get those phone calls, sms’s, and emails from my friends for the birthday wishes but deeply in my heart, I know that I just wished to meet them and hugged them as tight as I could. But I just could do nothing.
Anyway, something really made me felt so lucky this day. My dad was coming home so early. It was about 6 in the evening. Firstly, I didn’t know why but now I do. He did that just because he wanted the birthday girl happy. After we perform our prayers, my dad said that he was going to bring us out to the Angsana Plaza. For what? Hell yeah… To celebrate my birthday! He brought us to the pizza restaurant as he knows my favourite food is pizza. Then, we had our appetizing dinner there. So happy, wonderful and contented time in the restaurant. You know? I love it.

Then I realized, there are people who Allah gave me to love me and care about me. That is my family and absolutely my friends too. This day, I felt like my dad is the coolest daddy I ever saw. Why not? When he brought me to the plaza, I noticed that he was very tired from working all day long but I know that he really doesn't want to make me disappointed. So, he came back home early to have a bit rest for charging his energy just for the birthday girl's night celebration. My mom too... I realized that she was worned-out like a person who have no more strength to do other work. But subhanallah... for my birthday party, she was willing to do anything. Umi & Abah, I really do love you both. May Allah bless your life. Allah... Thanks for giving me the chance to feel the pleasure of love. Please Allah, do fill my heart with love to You, Rasool Muhammad, my parents and to everybody who loved You. Ameen...
