Eating prayers~

Bismillah.

Today, ana went out to have some lunch with a good friend.

WARNING! : Don't forget, before you put that food into your mouth, please do read your eating prayers! or if you don't remember it, at least, please say "Bismillah". =)

Eating prayer - Allahumma bareeq lanaa fima razaaqtana wakeena azaa banaar


(aseef, ana not so sure of the spelling but that's how it sounds like. and it's really easy you know. maybe at first, it seems so long, just like it was for me the first few times ana started practising reading this prayer everytime before ana eat and alhamdulillah, 9/10 times ana remember to say it. but after one week, wah, you can say it easily. just like snapping your fingers!)


or an alternative is - Bisimillahi wa 'ala baraka-tillah (Hah, so short this one! No more complains OK?!!)
which translates to - With Allah's name and upon the blessings granted by Allah, do we eat. 


There's also prayer after your meals: Alhamduillahi lathee at amana wa saquana waja 'alana minal Muslimin.
Translation: All praise to Allah who gave us food and drink and who made us Muslims. =)

dessert time!! yummylicious~~ not exorbitant like in Malaysia
One thing ana dislike bout this country is the high tax charges. So sad, ana always paying for tax, which hinders me from giving them good tips sometimes. hmm..

Anyway, we walked a bit in the mall and here's a pretty nice fountain!~ Get to de-stress a bit from the hectic weekdays. Alhamdulillah..


All right, that's all and here's a picture=)

REMINDER!: Everyday, don't forget to give thanks to Allah (make this a kewajipan) in EVERY SOLAT (prayer) ! Many people forget to do that. It's such a simple thing, saying thank you i.e.. I mean, Allah gets a lot of prayers mentioning their hopes from Him, what they want to achieve, what they need, and so on, but only a handful remember to also include a simple "Thank you Allah for all that you've done for me". Do this in your sujud alright ikhwah and akhawat? x susah pun.. =)

WAllahua'lam
