so much to do, so little time~

salam alaik,

I have so much of stuff in my to-do-list, but there's so little time to get those things done! Not only that, my assignments are also really difficult to the extent that sometimes I feel like questioning Him but no! I can't do that! I have to accept and just continue to persevere and give it my best shot ! yaAllah yaTuhanku, please have mercy upon your weak slave ! Please provide me with the strength and wisdom that I pray for everyday. **letting out a cry**

Azna, mabruk for the admittance into Manchester U. It is a good uni and the place is awesome as it is also a very reasonable place to live in. I am so happy for you ! alhamdulillah, all praise to Allah !

Hana, I hope your interviews are going well and don't forget to always include Him in your life.

Siti, bittaufiq wan najah in your coming exams(if I am not mistaken). rabbuna yusahhil if things are hard on you, which I doubt. haha

Happy birthday to those born today =) May Allah continue to shower you with blessings!

Random Quran Verse~

[17:23] And your Lord has commanded that you shall not serve (any) but Him, and show goodness to your parents. If either or both of them reach old age with you, say not to them (so much as) "Uff" nor chide them, and speak to them a generous word.

The rights that a Muslim have over other Muslims~

Assalamualaikum w.b.t.,

"Hak seorang Muslim terhadap seorang Muslim" Enam perkara:
Apabila engkau bertemu dengannya, hendaklah engkau memberi salam,
apabila beliau menjemputmu hendaklah engkau menunaikan jemputannya,
apabila beliau menasihatimu, hendaklah engkau juga menasihatinya,
apabila beliau bersin dan menyebut "AlhamduliLlah" hendaklah engkau menyebut :YarhamukaLlah",
apabila beliau sakit hendaklah engkau menziarahinya dan
apabila beliau meninggal dunia hendaklah engkau mengiringi jenazahnya."

(Hadis riwayat Muslim)

=) I never knew bout this until now. So, if any of you are not aware of this, it's never too late to learn !

some meaningful phrases for all my sisters and brothers~

Salam alaik, 

We constantly need Him in our life and if we put Him aside: 

Telah aku merasakan derita jiwa dan perasaan,kerana hilang dari jalan menuju redhaMu ya Tuhan.

Besides that, bear in mind that He will only test you with situations within your capabilities. He will not go beyond your limitations as He is a Merciful God and His reason is not to make you suffer; just merely giving you tests to improve yourselves even further (=

  ' Allah tidak membebani seseorang itu melainkan sesuai dengan kesanggupannya. '  Surah Al-Baqarah ayat 286

Salam alaik all,

AQ Reading~

Assalamualaikum wbt.,

Surah Al-Qamar (54) ayat 54-55:

Sila buka AQ anda sendiri dan baca dengan khusyuk ye saudara-saudaraku :)


For today~

Daripada kitab Ihya' Ulumiddin, seorang ahli sufi telah berkata: 

"Biarlah aku sederhana pada pandangan orang lain, rendah pada pandangan diri sendiri dan tinggi pada pandangan Allah."


Bagi bacaan semua~

" wanita yang solehah tersenyum dalam kesusahan 
mendapat kekuatan melalui doa

menenangkan hati melalui istighfar (isghtifar apa maksudnya?) 
mendidik diri dengan solat yang khusyuk"

susah itu tarbiyyah. sabar itu indah. (tarbiyyah tu apa?)

"dan orang-orang yang berjihad untuk (mencari keredhaan) Kami, 
Kami akan tunjukkan kepada mereka jalan-jalan Kami. 
Dan sungguh, Allah beserta orang-orang yang berbuat baik."

- Surah Al- Ankabut, 29 : 69

Alhamdulillah, THANK YOU ALLAH~

I asked for strength,
and He gave me difficulties to make me strong.

I asked for wisdom,
and He gave me problems to solve.

I asked for courage,
and He gave me obstacles to overcome.

I asked for love,
and He gave me troubled people to help.

I asked for favours,
and He gave me opportunities.

"Maybe I received nothing I wanted,
But I received everything I needed"


Hatred & Vengeance is not the way in Islam~

Salam alaik,

If my post title is not correct, please correct me because my understanding may not be strong yet as sometimes, I may get facts and informations mixed up (especially being a Christian before this, I am worried that I might say things wrongly in regards to Islam).

Anyway, today's post is merely just to quote a phrase here for all to read since I came across it when reading my fellow ukhti's blog. So, here it goes:

"Cara terbaik untuk menghukum orang yang telah melakukan kesalahan terhadap kita ialah dengan berbuat baik kepadanya." (kalau kita interpret dari persepsi negatif, adakah kita disuruh melayan mereka dengan baik sekadar untuk menyakitkan hati mereka?-this is what majority of the people would say)

Namun, saya amat yakin bahawa dalam Islam, Allah menggalakkan kita berbuat baik kepada orang yang melukakan kita kerana sebab-sebab yang lebih logik dan baik as in good intentions.

Can anyone please clarify why Allah wants us to treat them well? If possible, please marshal adequate facts to prove your case(i.e., verses from the Al Qur'an or hadith maybe? =)).

Have Respect for us Muslimahs~

Assalamu alaykum wbt.,

"Be careful if you make a woman cry, because Allah the Most High counts her tears. A Woman came out of the rib of man, not his feet to be walked on, nor his head to be superior over; She came from his side to be his companion, under his arm to be protected, and next to his heart to be loved." 

This proves that women are not at a disadvantage in Islam religion. Many misunderstand this. My family for instance, they don't like the idea of me talking fondly of Islam because they feel that only men have reasons to convert into Islam. I know they are doing this because they love me dearly, but I hope one day I will be able to show them that what they think is not how it is so that they will be able to accept my reversion with open hearts and minds. For now, they still do not know of me being a muslimah. I have tried telling a few times, but all to no avail.

 'Bismillah ar-Rahman ar-Raheem',

Marilah kita mendengar ayat2 yang Liana amat sukakan untuk hari ini-

6:48 - Para rasul yang kami utus itu adalah untuk memberi khabar gembia dan membri peringatan. Barang siapa beriman dan mengadakan perbaikan, maka tidak ada rasa takut pada mereka dan mereka tidak bersedih hati.

6:51 - Peringatkanlah dengannya(Al Qur'an) itu orang yang takut akan dikumpulkan menghadap Tuhannya pada hari kiamat, tidak ada bagi mereka pelindung dan pemberi syafaat(pertolongan) selain Allah, agar mereka bertakwa.

Amin rabbiul al amin. (sorry kalau saya tersalah eja; sila betulkan saya.. syukran)

Para pembaca yang dihormati, silalah baca al qur'an dengan istiqamah. Hamba juga sedang mencuba sedaya upaya. =) jom, kita sama-sama baca ! ^_^

Is the most beautiful book of all.

I used to read the qur'an everyday until I felt very busy that I have not read it for some time. I feel very guilty and I started reading it again last night. I would like to share with you all a few verse that I really enjoy and love due to the deep meaning it has.

Surah Al-An'am Ayat 15-18:

6:15 - Katakanlah (Muhammad), "Aku benar2 takut akan azab hari yang besar(hari kiamat), jika aku mendurhakai Tuhanku."

6:16 - Barang siapa dijauhkan dari azab atas dirinya pada hari itu, maka sungguh, Allah telah memberikan rahmat kepadanya. Dan itulah kemenangan yang nyata.

6:17 - Dan jika Allah menimpakan suatu bencana kepadamu, tidak ada yang dapat menghilangkannya selain Dia. Dan jika Dia mendatangkan kebaikan kepadamu, maka Dia Mahakuasa atas segala sesuatu.

6:18 - Dan Dialah yang berkuasa atas hamba2Nya. Dan Dia Mahabijaksana, Maha Mengetahui.

I am very touched by these verses and find it very meaningful. This is why I fell in love with Islam in the first place. I actually really feel the spiritual bond with Him; the bond that I have been searching all my life. I am so ever grateful to Allah for showing me His light and His glory. Amin.

Peace be unto all. =)
