wake up, ummah !

Assalamualaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh

The fact that I'm all cuddled up in bed in an air conditioned room with everything in place like my clothes in my closet, books on my study table complete with a television and everything else that I have but don't need bothers me when some husband (my brother in Islam) are watching their wife and daughter (my sisters in Islam) being raped and abused while their son are being held hostages or killed straight away in other parts of the world like Syria, Palestine, Gaza and so many other places that we don't even bother to pay attention to. We are all so caught up in our career, luxurious life, happiness and wealth that we forgot, there are so many unfortunate people waiting for us to lend a helping hand.

The nights when I can't seem to fall asleep, I start thinking, "How do they do it ? How do they pick themselves up after seeing their family and friends being murdered in front of their naked eyes ?" but when it comes to me, a broken heart or a broken friendship can bring so much pain.

Can you imagine ? Waking up everyday with the possibility of dying or watching your little sister or brother get shot or watching your mum get dragged away from home or watching your father get tortured but there's nothing you can do. Subhanallah. How blessed are we to be free ? Not just living in a free country but we have a free soul that allows us to go anywhere we want, do anything we want without having the fear of a nuclear bomb exploding out of nowhere or random soldiers coming to you and pointing a gun at you. Allah SWT has given us that freedom and yet, we still disobey him. Why ? Even with the worst kind of situation, they are still able to keep living their daily lives like looking for money, planting source of food, training themselves to jihad in the path of Allah SWT. The kids go out and play like there's no war threatening them. If it was us, we would probably pack our bags and go but no, they would stay and say, "Why be afraid ? This is our home. We fight for Allah SWT. We fight for our religion and freedom." Oh how strong their faith is compared to us who are still astray and being swept away with the pleasures of dunya.

I honestly think it's about time, the ummah wake up. We have to be bigger and stronger to fight for the freedom of our brothers and sisters in Islam. Wake up, ummah ! Wake up ! Everyday, a little girl is being raped and killed, a little boy is being beaten to death, a mother watches as her children suffers but what can she do ? She is only a woman, not strong enough to stand up to the soldiers holding big guns. All her husband can do is comfort her by telling her, "Remember zaujati, Allah SWT is always with us. He hears our every prayer. Laa Tahzan."

WAKE UP, UMMAH !

remembrance


Therefore remember Me (by praying, glorifying), I will remember you, and be grateful to Me (for My countless Favors on you) and never be ungrateful to Me.” Quran (2:152)

Assalamualaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh

We are showered with all the dunya things when that was not what we needed. We are showered with money and things that can be bought although we know it would not last forever. We are showered with love and care and for that we are grateful but we tend to forget the One and Only behind that temporary happiness. We are blessed with homes and cars but do we say Alhamdulillah enough ? We forgot that with the dunya things, we often forget akhirah. We forgot that money and wealth can turn us into snobby selfish monsters. We forgot that we were supposed to grasp for knowledge in our religion as much as we grasp for air when we are drowning. With the pleasures of dunya, we forgot that we actually need our religion, some may not want it but they need it. We all do. We forgot that there is a world after this world (akhirah) waiting for us and that world is forever. That world provides us with the Jannah we try to mold this world into but when are we going to realize that that's not the purpose of this world ? We forgot that syaitan is always around to take us astray but then again, why do we let them ? We forget these things so, when we sin, we point fingers. You point one finger at another person but you have three fingers pointing back at you. We blame other people but it is us, ourselves that forgot our religion. It is us that forget Allah SWT.

mum


Assalamualaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh

15 July 1977
The loveliest little girl was brought out to earth to be the kindest, most loving and caring mother (not to forget, beautiful) to no other lucky girl but me <3

Dear Marina bt Hashim,
I of course, as cliche as ever would like to start this with a gazillion thank yous that will never be enough after what you have gone through to raise me up. Mum, only Allah SWT can shower you with his blessings for all the things you did right while bringing me and my siblings up. Only Allah SWT understands the pain and sorrow you had to go through to put me in the blissful life I'm living now but I no less, praise Allah SWT and you in my prayers because I am grateful. Thank you for all the times you had to sit through my babbles about school, friends and such. Thank you for all the things you granted me although there were times I never deserved it even one bit. Thank you for always being my #1 bestfriend, my loyal boyfriend and of course forever amazing mum. Thank you for showing me from right to wrong, 1-10, a-z and everything else that I'd never manage to learn on my own. Nobody's perfect but you're the perfect mum for me. Even if I could trade you with all the good things in life, I would still choose you. I pray that Allah SWT grants you Jannahtul Firdaus for your never ending babbles, patience, kindness, love and the list goes on. Me, Amalin, Rayyan, Danish, Zarif and Zara are probably the luckiest kids in the world despite your scoldings hehe. You are the best and you always will be. Happy Birthday, mum. I love you mucho mucho <3 <3



I was a foolish little child
Crazy things I used to do
And all the pain I put you through
Mummy now I'm here for you
For all the times I made you cry

Now it's time for you to rise
For all the things you sacrificed


Oh, if I could turn back time rewind

And even though I was so bad

Love my kid the way you do

You know you are the number one for me
You know you are the number one for me
Oh, oh, number one for me
There's no one in this world that can take your place
Oh, I'm sorry for ever taking you for granted, ooh
I will use every chance I get
To make you smile, whenever I'm around you
Now I will try to love you like you love me
Only God knows how much you mean to me

RAHSIA

Assalamualaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh

Just a little something I thought I should have on my blog since it's my favourite poem (one that's not in english that is :p )

بداية


Assalamualaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh

I never thought I'd start blogging again but alhamdulillah, here I am right now on a new blog writing (more like typing haha) the new chapters of my life.

Laa Tahzan Innallaha Ma'ana
I have always had this strong believe in that ayat. Whenever I'm sad or upset, it automatically comes up to my mind. I strongly believe that yes, Allah SWT is with us. Not just through hardships but through anything and everything. The thing that keeps me going when I have to go through obstacles is that fact that Allah SWT is always, always looking after me. Whether I'm in my room crying or I'm on top of the mountains shouting my lungs out or even when I'm stranded on an island in the middle of the sea. No matter where you are, who you're with, what you are doing, Allah SWT is always looking after you. The key to passing through obstacles is sabr and have faith that Allah SWT loves you and Allah SWT never tests you with a burden you can't carry.

& I hope all of you will be extra sabr during this Ramadhan and insyaAllah, it will be a barakah Ramadhan for all of us. So, here is to my new blog ! Bismillah.
