::Hakikat Natijah::

Penatnya apabila kita bermain dengan perasaan, tambahan apabila kita mengira bahawa usaha kita yang menentukan kejayaan sesuatu perkara.
Wahai diri, sedarilah hakikat natijah sesuatu perkara hanya milik-Nya semata-mata, kita hanya mampu berusaha,Dia jugalah yang menentukan yg terbaik. 
Wahai diri, usahalah semampunya dan serahkan kembali semua kepada Yang Maha Mengetahui,nescaya ketenangan akan menyelubungi hatimu ini,inshaAllah~ 


Penatnya apabila apa yang kita usahakan membuahkan hasil yang dirasakan tidak setimpal. Penatnya apabila setiap tindakan kita ditentangi daripada pelbagai sudut sedangkan kita mengira bahawa apa yang kita lakukan ini hanyalah kerana Allah semata-mata. Penatnya apabila kita mempersoalkan kenapa begini dan begitu dalam  tindakan orang-orang di sekeliling kita, merasakan salahnya mereka berbuat demikian. 

Perbincangan itu membuatkan diri ini berfikir kembali, bukanlah hak manusia untuk menentukan salah atau betulnya sesuatu tindakan, selagi mana ianya tidak bertentangan dengan syarak. Dan sekalipun ia bersalahan dengan anjuran Rasulullah saw,tarbiyah Allah kepada baginda apabila kata sepakat tidak dapat dipersetujui ialah:
 
خُذِ ٱلۡعَفۡوَ وَأۡمُرۡ بِٱلۡعُرۡفِ وَأَعۡرِضۡ عَنِ ٱلۡجَـٰهِلِينَ
"Jadilah pemaaf dan suruhlah orang mengerjakan yang makruf, serta jangan pedulikan orang-orang yang bodoh"
(Al-A'raf;7:199) 

 
وَلَا تَسۡتَوِى ٱلۡحَسَنَةُ وَلَا ٱلسَّيِّئَةُ‌ۚ ٱدۡفَعۡ بِٱلَّتِى هِىَ أَحۡسَنُ فَإِذَا ٱلَّذِى بَيۡنَكَ وَبَيۡنَهُ ۥ عَدَٲوَةٌ۬ كَأَنَّهُ ۥ وَلِىٌّ حَمِيمٌ۬
"Dan tidaklah sama kebaikan dengan kejahatan. Tolaklah (kejahatan itu) dengan cara yang lebih baik, sehingga orang yang ada rasa permusuhan antara kamu dan dia akan seperti teman yang setia"
(Fussilat; 41:35) 
 
 
وَلَمَن صَبَرَ وَغَفَرَ إِنَّ ذَٲلِكَ لَمِنۡ عَزۡمِ ٱلۡأُمُورِ
"Tetapi barangsiapa bersabar dan memaafkan, sungguh yang demikian itu termasuk perbuatan yang mulia"
(Asy-Syura; 42:43)
 

Allah mendidik baginda Rasulullah saw dan para sahabat bahawa dalam menghadapi tentangan, sabar itulah yang paling baik. Sehinggakan Allah menggariskan ciri ini dalam orang-orang yang dicintai-Nya :
 
ٱلَّذِينَ يُنفِقُونَ فِى ٱلسَّرَّآءِ وَٱلضَّرَّآءِ وَٱلۡڪَـٰظِمِينَ ٱلۡغَيۡظَ وَٱلۡعَافِينَ عَنِ ٱلنَّاسِ‌ۗ وَٱللَّهُ يُحِبُّ ٱلۡمُحۡسِنِينَ
"(iaitu) orang yang berinfak, baik di waktu lapang mahupun sempit, dan orang-orang yang menahan amarahnya dan memaafkan (kesalahan) orang lain. Dan Allah mencintai orang yang berbuat kebaikan"
(Ali-Imran; 3:134)


Bahkan, 
 Allah menyambung selepas ayat ke-34 surah Fussilat, selepas Allah menggariskan penolakan terhadap keburukan dengan sesuatu yang lebih baik bahawa sifat ini tidak akan dianugerahkan kecuali kepada orang-orang yang sabar dan kecuali kepada orang-orang yang mempunyai keberuntungan yang besar.

 
وَمَا يُلَقَّٮٰهَآ إِلَّا ٱلَّذِينَ صَبَرُواْ وَمَا يُلَقَّٮٰهَآ إِلَّا ذُو حَظٍّ عَظِيمٍ۬ 
"Dan (sifat-sifat yang baik itu) tidak akan dianugerahkan kecuali kepada orang-orang yang sabar dan tidak dianugerahkan kecuali kepada orang-orang yang mempunyai keberuntungan yang besar"
(Fussilat; 41:35)


Betapa seerah baginda mengajar bahawa kita hanya mampu berusaha, namun ketentuan kepada usaha itu hanyalah milik Allah semata-mata. Tidak kiralah dalam apa jua perkara, sama ada dalam pelajaran, atau pun dalam perjuangan kita mengajak manusia mengenali si Dia. Dia jugalah yang memegang hati-hati itu. Dan Dia juga yang lebih mengetahui kebenaran niat kita dalam setiap tindakan yang kita ambil. Dan dalam setiap liku-liku perjuangan yang kita tempuhi, setiap mehnah yang kita harungi, Dia jugalah yang menentukan natijah perjuangan itu. Penatnya kita mempertikaikan sesuatu perkara yang sebenarnya berada di luar kemampuan dan bidang kuasa kita hanyalah perkara sia-sia.


P/s: Peringatan kepada diri sendiri yang seringkali tenggelam dalam mainan perasaan. Seringkali kalah kepada bisikan hati kecil yang dipengaruhi oleh nafsu amarah dan hasutan halus syaitan.

::Big Q's in life::


Narrative construction
We tell stories that reflects our life, relating back to events significant to our lives and experiences. In term of meaning, narrative constructions are stories that we tell about our lives or biographies in order to make sense of our lives, to give meaning to them, Stories that try to answers big questions about WHO AM I? and WHAT IS MY LIFE ABOUT? . These stories shape our identities and give life its meaning..

*   *   *
That is one of the concept in sociology as applied to medicine. While listening to that lecture, her mind can't help to think of the first time she was re-introduced to her Deen, Islam. Islam came to answer all those big questions of life; WHO ARE WE? WHAT ARE OUR PURPOSES? WHERE WILL WE GO AFTER WE DIE? Realising it or not, we human did try to find out the answers to all those questions, and being our Creator, Allah knows best and He gave us guidance to that.


Biographical Disruption
The way in which people's lives become profoundly disrupted by trauma, chronic illness or injury. Not only is a persons physical body disrupted, but also, the narrative constrictions or stories that have made up their biographies or lives, their self identities. (Mike Bury (1982) 'Chronic Illness as Biographical Disruption')

*    *    *
Any challenges that we human face in that leads to changes in how we see life and how we can tell stories about ourselves and our experiences.

The way she see it, it is any tests that Allah will put onto His servants as He create the human being with the ability to hear and see to be tested.

 
إِنَّا خَلَقۡنَا ٱلۡإِنسَـٰنَ مِن نُّطۡفَةٍ أَمۡشَاجٍ۬ نَّبۡتَلِيهِ فَجَعَلۡنَـٰهُ سَمِيعَۢا بَصِيرًا
"Lo! We create man from a drop of thickened fluid to test him; so We make him hearing, seeing"
(Al-Insan; 76:2)


  This bring the lecture to the third concept;

Narrative Reconstructions
Following an accident or illness, our stories or narrative constructions are disrupted or disorganised and we need to tell new stories to bring coherence and meaning back to our lives.

*    *    *
Her thought wanders again. This time to how a Muslim should react when life is not as wonderful as it supposed to be. We do have our narrative reconstructions, but giving it back to our LORD, believing that there will always be a silver lining in every cloud, Believing that He will not test us on something that we are not capable of. Believing that He is the All-Knowing and He knows what best for us. With that, it supposed to make it easier for the Muslim to accept whatever fate that Allah had set for him/her. With that, the heart should be filled with contentment and tawakkal to Him and in every seconds of a Muslim's life, he will always accept (redha) whatever that had been set for him.


That lecture made her ponder upon a lot of things. How every single concept that is relevant to a human's life can be found in this DEEN. It is the way of life and hopefully, every single things that she encounters throughout her life will make her remember her Lord even more, inshaAllah.

::Uswatun Hasanah::


لَّقَدۡ كَانَ لَكُمۡ فِى رَسُولِ ٱللَّهِ أُسۡوَةٌ حَسَنَةٌ۬ لِّمَن كَانَ يَرۡجُواْ ٱللَّهَ وَٱلۡيَوۡمَ ٱلۡأَخِرَ وَذَكَرَ ٱللَّهَ كَثِيرً۬ا
"Verily in the messenger of Allah ye have a good example for him who looketh unto Allah and the Last Day, and remembereth Allah much"

"sesungguhnya telah ada pada (diri) Rasulullah itu suri teladan yang baik bagimu (iaitu) bagi orang yang mengharap (rahmat) Allah dan (kedatangan) hari kiamat dan yang banyak mengingati Allah"
(Al-Ahzab;33:21)


Kisah Pengislaman Abul Ash Laqith bin Ar-Rabi' bin Abdis Syams bin Abdi Manaf bin Qushai Al-Quraisyi. 

Walaupun beliau menantu Rasulullah saw, beliau tidak memeluk Islam semasa baginda mula-mula berdakwah di Makkah. Bahkan Zainab, puteri Rasulullah saw menebusnya dengan kalung kepunyaan Khadijah semasa beliau menjadi tebusan perang Badar. Kalung yang membangkitkan kembali kenangan Rasulullah bersama Khadijah yang membuatkan baginda menjadi sebak. Lantas beliau dibebaskan dan kalung itu dipulangkan agar kembali semula kepada Zainab. Abul Ash berjanji akan membebaskan Zainab dan membenarkannya berhijrah ke Madinah. Berlakulah penghijrahan Zainab ke Madinah meninggalkan suami tercinta.

Suatu ketika, kafilah dagang kaum musyrikin Makkah melewati Madinah dan dihalang oleh pihak Muslimin. Ahli kafilah tersebut melarikan diri dan pihak muslimin merampas barangan dagangan mereka. Abul Ash yang merupakan salah sorang ahli kafilah tersebut meminta pertolongan Zainab agar merayu kepada ayahanda beliau, Rasulullah saw agar memulangkan kembali barang2 dagangan tersebut kerana barangan tersebut bukanlah miliknya tetapi milik orang-orang Quraisy Makkah yang diletakkan di bawah jagaannya sahaja. Rasulullah memperkenankan permintaan puterinya dan Abul Ash dibenarkan membawa pulang barang dagangan tersebut ke Makkah.

Bergegaslah Abul Ash pulang ke Makkah demi menyempurnakan amanahnya. Setelah semua penduduk Makkah berpuas hati mendapat kembali barang dagangan mereka, Abul Ash menyatakan keislamannya dan berhijrah ke Madinah untuk bersama saudara-saudara seaqidahnya.






Ibrah (pengajaran)

Walaupun Abul Ash ialah menantu kepada baginda Rasulullah saw, namun beliau tidak memeluk Islam semasa baginda berdakwah selama 13 tahun di Makkah. Namun, hidayah Allah datang atas asbab (sebab) kagumnya beliau dan tersentuhnya beliau dengan kebaikan, kemuliaan dan kehebatan peribadi Rasulullah saw. Kehebatan peribadi yang ditunjukkan oleh Rasulullah yang dikatakan oleh Aisyah r.a sebagai akhlak Al-Quran. 



Pandangan pertama atau "first impression" adalah perkara yang paling orang akan ingat tentang kita dan seharusnya "first impression" tentang kita adalah akhlak kita, kerana akhlak adalah sesuatu yang lahir dari hati dan tidak dipengaruhi oleh faktor persekitaran. Hebatnya akhlak Rasulullah sehingga berjaya mengislamkan Abul Ash, hebatnya akhlak kaum muslimin sehingga ramainya orang yang memeluk Islam setelah Islam dipraktikkan sebagai cara hidup secara terang-terangan apabila berlakunya pembukaan Kota Makkah. Namun,  di manakah akhlak kita apabila dibandingkan dengan akhlak mereka?

::stranded in a distant land::

~blank stare~

Feel a bit lost today,
don't know what went wrong,
feel as if i did nothing that would mount my Mizan in the hereafter,
well, not the right side for sure,
the left one was fine,
piling up, no problem,
How am i to meet Him,
carrying all those "actions" together?


*           *          *  


It's been a while since i write something else apart from my feelings. But one cannot share if one has nothing to share. That is what i am feeling right now. 



~down~


"It's the heart of a Muslim through the guidance of Islam
That makes you fair and kind and helpful to your fellow man
So living as a Muslim means that you must play a part
Allah looks not at how you look, but what is in your heart"



I need to play my part, and with that, i need to equip myself with knowledge and skills. He looks at our effort (mujahadah) inshaAllah. 


P/s:  With exams coming up and everything are just topsy turvy, can't really think straight. Need to calm down and take one thing at a time. But really need to pack everything and go. Can't wait any longer, cause time wait for no man. The very fact that Allah revealed a Surah on time (Al-Asr; 103) to show how human are wasting it and it is such an important aspect for one's life despite being just a concept and nobody can't really see it or touch it. How incredible that is? And how i need to really make full use of it, mashaAllah. Give me Your guidance, O' Allah.

::The Heart of A Muslim-Zain Bikha::


Looking up at the sky, searching for Allah most High
He rejected the way of worshipping Gods of clay
Prophet Ibrahim knew that Allah was near
And that the heart of a Muslim is sincere

Under the hot burning sun, he declared God is one
Though with stones on his chest, his Imaan would not rest
The Muadhin knew that right would conquer wrong
And the heart of a Muslim must be strong

Chorus:
It's the heart of a Muslim through the guidance of Islam
That makes you fair and kind and helpful to your fellow man
So living as a Muslim means that you must play a part
Allah looks not at how you look, but what is in your heart

In our poor meager state, little food on our plate
Mother said she was glad, always sharing what we had
When I asked how can we share what's not enough
She said the heart of a Muslim's filled with love

He said its time you should know, you will learn as you grow
That some people around will do what's bad to bring you down
Father said to be a star that's shining bright
For the heart of a Muslim does what's right

(Chorus)

So whatever you do, make sure your words are true
Honesty is the best, because life is a test
Even if it hurts so much you want to cry
For the heart of a Muslim does not lie
(Chorus 2x)

::Restless::

Thinking about lots of stuffs that had happened, she really was restless. It was the second day of "school" after winter break and she couldn't really focus on the lectures. Her mind was elsewhere. What was her to do, what was her able to do. Helpless. Speechless. 

In a noisy lecture theater, she was lonely. Breathless, as if there was a big boulder on her shoulder, unable to shed the thought away, unable to tell anybody about it, It was almost suffocating her. 

She prayed silently to Allah to give her some tranquility and she opened the Quran;

(Al-A'raf;7:138-149)

One of the ayah (verse) really gets to her;


سَأَصۡرِفُ عَنۡ ءَايَـٰتِىَ ٱلَّذِينَ يَتَكَبَّرُونَ فِى ٱلۡأَرۡضِ بِغَيۡرِ ٱلۡحَقِّ وَإِن يَرَوۡاْ ڪُلَّ ءَايَةٍ۬ لَّا يُؤۡمِنُواْ بِہَا وَإِن يَرَوۡاْ سَبِيلَ ٱلرُّشۡدِ لَا يَتَّخِذُوهُ سَبِيلاً۬ وَإِن يَرَوۡاْ سَبِيلَ ٱلۡغَىِّ يَتَّخِذُوهُ سَبِيلاً۬‌ۚ ذَٲلِكَ بِأَنَّہُمۡ كَذَّبُواْ بِـَٔايَـٰتِنَا وَكَانُواْ عَنۡہَا غَـٰفِلِينَ
"I shall turn away from My revelations those who magnify themselves wrongfully in the earth, and if they see each token believe it not, and if they see the way of righteousness choose it nor for (their) way, and if they see the way of error choose if for (their) way. That is because they deny Our revelations and are used to disregard them. "
(Al-A'raf;7:146)


Who is she to think of herself that way? What if she falls in the category that Allah mentioned in the ayah; "those who magnify themselves wrongfully in the earth" and Allah will not guide her anymore. Who knows it better that Allah? nobody but HIM!


قُلۡ ڪُلٌّ۬ يَعۡمَلُ عَلَىٰ شَاكِلَتِهِۦ فَرَبُّكُمۡ أَعۡلَمُ بِمَنۡ هُوَ أَهۡدَىٰ سَبِيلاً۬
"Say: Each one doth according to his rule of conduct, and thy Lord is best aware of him whose way is right."
(Al-Israa';17:84)

 Astaghfirullah!
 Astaghfirullah!
 Astaghfirullah!

With that reminder from Allah, her heart was filled with contentment again, Alhamdulillah!

::Precision::

 إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ ٱشۡتَرَىٰ مِنَ ٱلۡمُؤۡمِنِينَ أَنفُسَهُمۡ وَأَمۡوَٲلَهُم بِأَنَّ لَهُمُ ٱلۡجَنَّةَ‌ۚ يُقَـٰتِلُونَ فِى سَبِيلِ ٱللَّهِ فَيَقۡتُلُونَ وَيُقۡتَلُونَ‌ۖ وَعۡدًا عَلَيۡهِ حَقًّ۬ا فِى ٱلتَّوۡرَٮٰةِ وَٱلۡإِنجِيلِ وَٱلۡقُرۡءَانِ‌ۚ وَمَنۡ أَوۡفَىٰ بِعَهۡدِهِۦ مِنَ ٱللَّهِ‌ۚ فَٱسۡتَبۡشِرُواْ بِبَيۡعِكُمُ ٱلَّذِى بَايَعۡتُم بِهِۦ‌ۚ وَذَٲلِكَ هُوَ ٱلۡفَوۡزُ ٱلۡعَظِيمُ (١١١)
"Lo! Allah hath bought from the believers their lives and their wealth because the Garden will be theirs: they shall fight in the way of Allah and shall slay and be slain. It is a promise which is binding on Him in the Torah and the Gospel and the Qur'an. Who fulfilleth His covenant better than Allah? Rejoice then in your bargain that ye have made, for that is the supreme triumph."
 (At-Taubah, 9:111)


يَـٰٓأَيُّہَا ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُواْ هَلۡ أَدُلُّكُمۡ عَلَىٰ تِجَـٰرَةٍ۬ تُنجِيكُم مِّنۡ عَذَابٍ أَلِيمٍ۬ (١٠)تُؤۡمِنُونَ بِٱللَّهِ وَرَسُولِهِۦ وَتُجَـٰهِدُونَ فِى سَبِيلِ ٱللَّهِ بِأَمۡوَٲلِكُمۡ وَأَنفُسِكُمۡ‌ۚ ذَٲلِكُمۡ خَيۡرٌ۬ لَّكُمۡ إِن كُنتُمۡ تَعۡلَمُونَ (١١) يَغۡفِرۡ لَكُمۡ ذُنُوبَكُمۡ وَيُدۡخِلۡكُمۡ جَنَّـٰتٍ۬ تَجۡرِى مِن تَحۡتِہَا ٱلۡأَنۡہَـٰرُ وَمَسَـٰكِنَ طَيِّبَةً۬ فِى جَنَّـٰتِ عَدۡنٍ۬‌ۚ ذَٲلِكَ ٱلۡفَوۡزُ ٱلۡعَظِيمُ (١٢)
"O ye who believe! Shall I show you a commerce that will save you from a painful doom? (10) Ye should believe in Allah and His messenger, and should strive for the cause of Allah with your wealth and your lives. That is better for you, if ye did but know. (11) He will forgive you your sins and bring you into Gardens underneath which rivers flow, and pleasant dwellings in Gardens of Eden. That is the supreme triumph. (12)"
 (As-Saff;61:10-12)



How precise Allah is in using words in His Book; the Quran. In the first ayah, He said that He bought us our lives first , and then our wealth. Between life and wealth, life is more valuable to someone, and He wants to buy it from us, of course when He bought it from us, He will rewards us with rewards that are far beyond our imagination, out of this world, InshaAllah. Try to see and compare the usage of wealth and life in the second ayah, "strive in the course of Allah with your wealth and lives". SubhanAllah, He asked us to sacrifice for His sake, but He said sacrifice our wealth first instead of our lives. Come to think about it, our wealth, our lives, our everything are actually HIS!! And yet, He is willing to buy those from us, giving us double the rewards, reward of the nikmah that we are enjoying at this very moment and the reward at the hereafter when we strive for His sake, using His nikmah! MashaAllah, indeed He is the Most Merciful!!



۞ لَتُبۡلَوُنَّ فِىٓ أَمۡوَٲلِڪُمۡ وَأَنفُسِڪُمۡ وَلَتَسۡمَعُنَّ مِنَ ٱلَّذِينَ أُوتُواْ ٱلۡكِتَـٰبَ مِن قَبۡلِڪُمۡ وَمِنَ ٱلَّذِينَ أَشۡرَكُوٓاْ أَذً۬ى كَثِيرً۬ا‌ۚ وَإِن تَصۡبِرُواْ وَتَتَّقُواْ فَإِنَّ ذَٲلِكَ مِنۡ عَزۡمِ ٱلۡأُمُورِ (١٨٦)
"Assuredly ye will be tried in your property and in your persons, and ye will hear much wrong from those who were given the Scripture before you, and from the idolaters. But if ye persevere and ward off (evil), then that is of the steadfast heart of things."
 (Ali Imran; 3:186)


Thinking about His tarbiyyah, He tested us with tests that are within our capabilities. How His tests in my life had change from physical tests; tiredness, property and lack of time to something more to my inner self, playing with emotions and lack of support from sahabiah that were always by my side before this. But, He did tell me (and all of us, inshaAllah) that in His ayah above. Just a reminder to myself, stay strong because that is what really matter! InshaAllah~

::Islamic civilization::

‎"Those are a people who have passed away. Theirs is that which they earned, and yours is that which ye earn. And ye will not be asked of what they used to do." 

(Al-Baqarah; 2:134)



When we read the history, we talked about great Islamic scholars, who discovered diversity of knowledge, that became the base of modern knowledge. We talked about the four great caliphates of khulafa' ar-rasyidin, the sahabah; (the unique Quranic generation), the imams, and many other great people. But is that all that we need to do? Are we done? Did we fulfill our purpose of life by just talking about it? 

Yes, Islamic empires were on top of the world during their times. Rashidun Caliphate, Umayyad caliphate, Abbasid caliphate and Ottoman caliphate were among the four caliphates that most Muslims know and cherished. But is that all? Is it enough just knowing? 

They have done their part in upholding this Deen, and inshaAllah, they will be rewarded by Allah in the hereafter, but us. We have a long way to go. We have to continue what they have done, we have to improve ourself and be the best that we can be, fulfilling our utmost potential so that we can bring back Islam to it's right position , inshaAllah

::Things I would not have experience if... ::

My first winter in UK, i went to Sheffield for a gathering; Winter Gathering (PMS; Perhimpunan Musim Sejuk), gathering that gathered most UK and Eire Malaysian students. It was a blast, how the core of Islam, the basic principles that should be known by all muslims, being explained to us, the students, especially as we are living in a country where people said Islamic practices are hard to be done. But actually, if we learnt it properly, Islamic practices are not hard, anybody can do it anywhere as long as it fulfilled the criteria needed. For example; to perform the prayer; solah, all you need is a clean clothing, clean place and ablution (wudhu'), the direction can be found using a compass; of course we Muslims need to have all our "things" with us all the time; compass, ablution (can be preserved or can be taken anywhere there is water), but it is not necessarily to pray in a mosque. With all the technology invented; praying time application in the mobile and everything, even compass in the mobile phone, so it is not "that" hard anymore, it is easy to fulfill our duty as a Muslim, inshaAllah.

The first talk was about Islam, Islam in each corner of life. How it covers every single aspect of a human being. From cleanliness, things concerning yourself to how to behave to neighbours ; concerning people around you. From the moment you wake up, the doa (prayer) to how to sleep; the position while sleeping and what to do if you dream bad or good dreams. How perfect it is to guide us through our thick and thin.

There were so much interesting talks that was given by charismatic speakers throughout the gathering, but the last one was the one that touched my heart the most, "THE EXCELLENCE OF AL-MUKHLISIN".
How sincere are we in doing all the good deeds that we did before this? Is it solely for Allah? I have that question in my mind up until now. How we want to be MUSLIM, we want to understand ISLAM, and the gathering talked about ISLAM, IMAN and IHSAN, the three main foundations of this deen. Yes, everything is related to each other. In order to have a complete ISLAM as our deen, we have to have all three, But all in all, it is ikhlas that we have to have as well, we want to be among the MUKHLISIN (people who are sincere in doing things solely for Allah's sake). It is like, it binds all the three components together. 

I know it is the basic things in ISLAM, but it bears a heavy and important role as to become the foundation of this deen, so understanding it  really is crucial for all muslim. and learning it in winter gathering this year (PMS)  gave me a new perspective in seeing it. 

SubhanAllah, Alhamdulillah, Allahu Akbar

He gave me the chance to experience a lot of new things after my 'hijrah' to a new land. A land that was a stranger to me, but had taught me so many new things in just few months I've been here. A land that give me the opportunity to experience things that i might not even dream of doing and seeing if it was not for the sake of knowing my LORD. Thank you Allah for this opportunity. Let the love for YOU spread in my heart before it is filled with something else from the temporary enjoyment of this world.

I intended to write things about my jaulah (journey) around UK but ended up babbling about other stuffs instead. But the journey around UK (southampton, sheffield, manchester, lancaster, birmingham, leicester) was full of tarbiyah from HIM, alhamdulillah. He gave me the chance to see HIS creation and to think about HIS greatness. 

All the things i would not have experience if......~
