How easy it is for us to forget..

Bismillahirrahmanirrahim - in the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.

How easy it is for us,
To forget what it was like
When we were once family,

The times we shared.

How easy it is for us,
To forget How to love.

How easy it is for us,
To forget how to smile,

It's easy to forget.


It's even harder,
... NOT to love,

Family is forever.

And I quote, "CNY is always a time for reunion. Whatever differences we may have as a family, there's always a way to overcome them. So let's come together as one family during reunion dinner. After all, family is forever."

InshaAllah, there's always a way to overcome our differences. Amin, Amin yaRabbal al amin.


P/s: Cried watching this video, where the dad carried and helped his son. TT

Feel a burden? Don't fret. Instead..


Have faith in Him~ Tawakkaltu 'Ala Allah =)

Am I a deceiver?

Astaghfirulla astaghfirulla astaghfirulla al adzim !!!

I am indeed a horrible and a terrible person.

Crying while praying to Allah used to be an effortless thing for me. But today, I was seated at my prayer mat for over 20 minutes yet I shed not half of my normal amount. Why is it so? Does this mean my heart is corrupted and being filled with diseases now? SubhanAllah, astagfirulla!! Please God, save me from going astray or from falling into the category of those people who say "I believe" but in their hearts, they do not. O' Lord, forgive me my sins and shortcomings. Give me strength to become a better Muslim by the day, not one with wavering Imaan.


And now, see (read) how the AQ clearly teaches us Muslims to be our best towards our parents? SubhanAllah.


are we treating our parents right?

"You might be married to the worst man on earth, like Asiah who married Pharoah, but it didn't change her goodness or her aqeedah. You might be married to the best man on earth, like Prophet Lut's wife, yet that doesn't mean you're going to Jannah with him. You might not be married at all, like our beloved Maryam (raa) yet Allah SWT places your status above all other women on earth. Have faith in Allah always and place your full trust in Him... He's the central focal point of our lives.- Heba El-Haddad

True that, but I am one who wishes to share her life with someone. And He IS the central focal point of my life, this is why I want to build a platform that centers around my beloved Allah SWT - by doing things the right way. May God grant my prayers and guide me. =)

1. Wanna be OR feel closer to ALLAH?


Wisdom  ||  Courage  ||  Temperance  ||  Justice

are the four most foundational virtues one should strive to attain! - Dr. Abdal Hakim Jackson

Are you interested to bring yourself nearer to Him, our one and only Allah SWT? =)

If yes, here's a recipe to achieve that objective of yours, iAllah!

Spiritual Diet (The main highlight of this post):
1. Constant remembrance of God
2. Silence (i.e. observe and listen more)
3. Solitude (being isolated from everything. Just you, by yourself!)
4. Minimal food & Drink (~fasting)

This diet's aim is to help one to grow closer to the only ONE. And if you think about it, it does make a whole lot of sense! MashaAllah~!

- Imam Zaid Shakir

The first step to form a relationship (halal) is to take our own deen seriously! - Imam Zaid Shakir

... hypocrite

Yes, I do feel like a hypocrite at times. And I know there are people out there who think of me that way too. I am sorry but I am not here to please everyone. I am here to please Allah SWT, and yes, I am fully aware that I am still far from that as well. But please know that I am trying. I am.

P/s: In life, one can't please everyone. What will that make of themselves, if everything is about ppl around them?
