Ramadhan, welcome back !

Assalamualaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh

Alhamdulillah, we get to experience another month full of mercy, gratitude, kindness and love. I cannot believe how fast time is flying. I don't know if you guys notice but I say this in almost all of my posts haha because it's true ! One minute, it's only the beginning of the year and the next, we're already fasting for Ramadhan ! This year, I'm even more excited than usual. I have all these things I'm planning to do and I have a checklist I got from Twitter too ! Tahajjud, be kind, no backbiting, sharing my Iftar, making my parents smile, tell my parents I love them and so much more. I've put my mind into it so now, I'm hoping to achieve it. 

print 4 of these to cover the whole month of Ramadhan
and start ticking on your good deeds !

Before I forget, I seek forgiveness to those who I have wronged before and I hope that this holy month can be a new start for us. To those that I may or may not have hurt with either my words or actions, forgive me. Forgive me if I have responded rudely, not responded at all or anything that might have hurt you in anyway. Most importantly, I hope we all learn to forgive ourselves. Forgiveness from others and forgiveness from the All Mighty is granted, important but we also need to forgiveness from within. We all have done things that we regret so, don't beat yourself up. There's always time to improve and for as long as you live, you will always improve, insyaaAllah. Ramadhan has always been the month that I look forward to because I see all different kinds of people trying to change themselves for the better. Even if people call you "Ramadhan Muslim", so what ? Today, you may be a Ramadhan Muslim but who knows, tomorrow you will be a full time Mukmin ? Have faith in yourself and have faith in Allah SWT. Ramadhan Mubarak, my dear sisters & brothers !

Assalamualaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh 

I can't believe I'm actually saying this but I'm pretty excited for school. Sad that the holidays have come to an end but pumped to start pushing myself to really study hard. All I want to focus on for the next few months of my high school life would be studying and achieving straight As for my parents. If any of you have the same plan, may the odds be ever in your favor.

I'd like to say thank you to everyone who wished me on my birthday, I hope I replied to all of you ! If I didn't, I'm so sorry but thank you. Someone planned a really nice surprise for me and there are some memorable and precious pictures I'd like to share !

hugging the girl that played a huge role in inviting all my good friends, del <3
of course, the camwhoring begins hahaha
keanu giving a speech on behalf of my friends
papa giving a speech on behalf of asyraf's family
mummy giving a speech on behalf of my family
i may or may not have cried :p

seeing almost all my closest friends from different schools and the people that meant a lot to me in one room, was probably the second best thing that night (first best thing was the surprise duhh haha)

pictures with the families.

so grateful for the both of them.
zane never misses the cake cutting and candle blowing hahaha
not forgetting, the someone that made it all happen. you are literally the best.
i have never met someone so kind, so loving and so patient. i have forgotten what it's like
to not have your presence in my life and i hope that i will never have to remember
because i'll always want you around. you make me so happy, it's unbelievable.
i may not say it enough but it's true, you know it is. i don't know what i did to deserve you.
 thank you for everything.
i love you so much, Sheikh Asyraf Bux.

ramadhan enthusiasm

"Zakah expenditures are only for the poor and for the needy and for those employed to collect [zakah] and for bringing hearts together [for Islam] and for freeing captives [or slaves] and for those in debt and for the cause of Allah for the [stranded] traveller - an obligation [imposed] by Allah. and Allah is Knowing and Wise." (Quran 9:60)

Assalamualaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh

June. My favourite month has finally arrived ! My holidays started off pretty well and I'd say, one of the most productive holidays I've had. How's yours been going on ? Can't believe Ramadhan is coming soon ?! So excited ! 

Speaking of Ramadhan, do you guys want to score some extra pahala with me ? My grand aunty came by last week and told me about this great refugee charity. I know what you're thinking, "Refugees ? All those illegal immigrants, why would we want to help them when they enter our country illegally ?". Now now, clear all those negative thoughts. It's a month that's supposed to be about sharing and caring, right ?  Since refugees have to go through a tough time trying to make a living here, a small community of masyaAllah, amazing and kind hearted people decided to help them this coming Ramadhan. 

They will start by collecting donations and trying to get sponsors to help raise money to buy some food and drinks for the people. Then, on the first day of Ramadhan, they will pick a suitable place to give out the food for free as a little gift for berbuka. They are hoping to raise enough money to at least feed a thousand people since the amount of Muslim refugees in our country is quite a number. They also need a lot of volunteers on the day they give out the food because they will need all the help they can get. I will give out details on this little charity work soon and I'm hoping to get my blog readers to help out ! I will, insyaAllah be there to participate as well. Man, I'm psyched for Ramadhan !
