Note: I don't normally share personal matters/issues here but I suppose this can be an exception? For it is such a great joy for me~~ :-)
I just realised that it has been a year since I accepted and embraced Islam~!! Wow! That was quick! It definitely didn't feel like a year! I guess this probably shows that Islam has been a joy in my life. I am ever so grateful and happy to have found Islam; all praise and thanks to Allah Taala. If He hadn't shown me The Light (hidayah), The Guidance, or The Way, I wouldn't have become the person I am today! Allahu akbar~! and Praise be to Allah~! Without His Light and Kindness towards me, it's not a guarantee that I would be able to find and fall in love with Islam! (Frankly, I despise Islam before I learnt what it is which is THE ULTIMATE TRUTH!)
I will never forget the day I embraced Islam, the day I automatically became connected to all my fellow brothers and sisters as we all have one thing in common, to constantly praise our One and Only Beloved Allah~!! Allahu akbar! Allahu akbar!! (God is Greatest!)
October 15th 2009 - the day I said the syahadah will be etched in my memory forever so I can tell my humble, average story to my grandkids when I'm old and fat, perhaps sitting in a rattan rocking chair? LOL =D
Ma'asalama wa ila liqa'. May Allah bless all of you and let's all pray that more and more people will discover the wonders of Islam as time progresses. Amin.
