Has Allah Forsaken Me?

Bismillah..Allah brought us into existence, placed us on this earth, provides us with everything we need and gave most of us the ability to choose how to spend our lives. He created us to test us, and we will be rewarded or punished as a result. But when Allah tests us, we always have this sort of  question in our head,"Why God picks me? Why me, why not others?Did he even heard my prayers or has He already forsaken me?" we weep and we almost forget that actually everyone is tested in a different ways or perhaps they're tested with something that much heavier and harder than us. Allah says in Quran:

"Your Lord has not forsaken you, nor has He become displeased. And surely what comes after is better for you than that which has gone before. And soon will your Lord give you so that you shall be well pleased." Surah Ad-Duha [verses 3-5]

Believe it, when Allah takes something from your grasp, He's not punishing you, but merely opening your hands to receive something better. The will of Allah will never take you where the Grace of Allah will not protect you. Chin up, have faith buddies, Allah never leaves us, He is watching us, listening to us and always with us ♥ ♥

One Step Closer

ALLAH (SWT) says : "Take one step towards me, I will take ten steps towards you. Walk towards me, I will run towards you." -Hadith Qudsi 

I'll make it clear that 
I ain't even tryin' to preach ya
By sharing thoughts I hope 
To find a little peace here 
May Allah bless us all

When we fear of something, we'll tryin hard to avoid in any sort of ways, but the same thing does not applies to God. If we fear Allah, we need to get closer to Him, closer and you'll feel His warm and never-ending love, and the peace will lays in your heart with no doubt. When the time comes, for your soul to leave the world, it will returns to the Lord, sorely tranquil, well-pleased and pleasing. 

Inshaallah, good day everyone :)

Atlas of Prophet Muhammad's Da'wah

The Book Cover
Bismillah..Oh real sunny day, the ray sunshine penetrate my room's curtain fiercely slap my table and impatiently touch my face. Alhamdulillah bright day, and I don't have much energy to continue my translation task, like I ever started, heh! Well I guess I need a break, so my eyes started to roam all around the corner and something catch my eyes, I grab the small book on the bookcase as the title really attracted me, Atlas Dakwah Nabi Muhammad SAW. Yes, atlas, it's full with maps in there, it shows you the position of places which we always heard in Sirah like the region where the Prophet Muhammad SAW was born and raised, Hira' Cave the place where he received the first revelation from Allah,  the places where the important wars in Islam took place and so on. Hm quite interesting. It's in Indonesian language, I don't know if it's available in English or not and I don't know where you can get it as I took it from my sister, well I'm at her house now.  Ok to spice things up, I'll show you some of the contents here, check 'em out :)

Map of the region of Prophet childhood

Map of the location of Hira' Cave

Map of location where Mu'tah war took place.

There is also the description and some compact explanations on the Sirah at the other side. Seriously, it's a good effort and I think it may helps us to have a clear vision of the early da'wah efforts by Prophet Muhammad SAW and his companions. It worth reading, try to find it and have a happy reading! 

Our amazing Optical Illusion!

I am sure, everyone have learn this in your secondary school or college, it'a basic science and one of the amazing fact about our eyes' visions created by the Greatest One, Allah SWT. So an optical illusion is characterized by visually perceived images that differ from objective reality, the information gathered by the eyes is processed in the brain to give a percept that does not tally with a physical measurement of the stimulus source. In a simple words, we may see something that is not there or fail to see something that is there or even see something that different from what is there! It's an illusion! *Fuh! I'm sweating* You get me?

You'll get what you give

It's true sometimes we don't realize how much we have changed, until we see the changes in the way people treated us because we have to believe, that we always will get what we have give others. Allah always watching us and He all knows and just.

10 Things we waste

1. Knowledge: Wasted when not taking action with it. 
2. Actions: Wasted when we do anything without sincerity. Intentions count. 
3. Wealth: Wasted when used on things that will not bring us âjr (reward). We waste our money, our status, our authority, on things that have no benefit in this life or in âkhirah (The Hereafter). 
4. Hearts: Wasted when empty from the love of Allah, and the longing for Him/Her, and devoid of peace & contentment. 
5. Bodies: Wasted when we don’t use them in ibâdah (worship) and service of Allah in serving humankind. 
6. Love: Wasted when our emotional love is misdirected, not towards Allah, but towards something/someone else. 
7. Time :Wasted when not used properly, by not doing what is righteous. 
8. Intellect: Wasted on things that are detrimental to society and the individual, not in contemplation or reflection. 
9. Service: Wasted when in service of someone who will not bring us closer to Allah. 
10. Dhikr: Wasted when it does not have an effect on our hearts

This is what we call as Optimist! :D

Oh! So optimist, aren't they?
Optimist is key.
If you expect the worst,
The worst will happen,
You are your own stress, 
Your own anger,
Your own sadness and frustration,
If you let things bother you, they will,
So don't let them, just be happy,
Nothing in this world is easy,
So make the best of all of it,
Don't dwell on the negatives.
Optimist is key 

P/S: My friend, once said in a very sunny day, "I'm wearing the sunglasses because I'm so optimist it's gonna rain." LOL

Never Give up on Anybody


“A wise man once sat in the audience and cracked a joke. Everybody laughs like crazy. After a moment, he cracked the same joke again, less people laughed this time. He cracked the same joke again and again. When there was no laughter in the crowd , he smiled and said,

“You can’t laugh about the same joke again and again, then why do you keep crying over the same thing over and over again?”

Never give up on anybody. Miracles happen everyday. Good day everyone ♥ :)

Being good is useful only when doing good


While earning your daily bread, be sure you share a slice with those less fortunate. Being good is commendable, but only when it is combined with doing good is it useful. How far you go in life depends on your being tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant of the weak and strong.  

Because someday in your life you will have been all of these.Beginning today, treat everyone you meet as if they were going to be dead by midnight.  Extend to them all the care, kindness and understanding you can muster, and do it with no thought of any reward.  Your life will never be the same again. How beautiful a day can be When kindness touches it! 

Good day everyone! :)

Be-Fabulous-Forever Muslimah

Sorry if it's your photo sister, can't be help coz it's on the net!

WOow, I was impressed :0 by some women's enthusiasm for make up! They spend their money depend on their level of enthusiasm to buy the make up set, spend hours (For the beginner) or maybe couples of minutes (For the expert) each time they plan to get out, I don't have such incredible patience, I think. Really, I have to make a simple unscientific research on this make ups thingo because I'm not used to it, so let me quickly introduce you with those little miss make up set: 

Very well known, Miss lipstick to magically turned your lips into whatever color you please

Miss Mascara, to curve or even make your eyelashes look longer 

Miss Blusher, to highlight your cheek's bone or to blush up your cheeks

Miss Eye Shadow palettes,  to make a shadow around your eyes, is it? 

Concealer, to of course, perfectly conceal the flaws on your face like pimples or  dark circles and so

Miss Eye liner, to defined the eyes  

Miss Compact powder, widely used among women to protect their faces from direct sunshine attacked

Actually the list is on and on, I was tired to put everything @__@, so here is my straight-forward analysis on make up enthusiasm's level (Which level you belong to?): 

1-Hm dull, low level of enthusiasm -_-

2-Yeah, average level of enthusiasm ~__~

3-Oh, high level of enthusiasm! ^__^

4-Wooot! Super master level of enthusiasm! ^O^
And the result is, tadaaaaa....


Ok, whatever it is,somehow it makes me feel like, is it that hard to be a woman?Maybe thats why once in my life I want to become a man! You have to look beautiful, you must look flawless, you should make sure your outfit is an up-to-date fashion and so forth. So many things to think about and it just strangles around your outward appearance. For what reason I should reach that worldly standard and who I want to impressed as Allah does not looks on one's appearance. Well, thanks to who that really concerned about my outward looks and offered me a free consultancy on fashion, but sorry, I'm not interested, I'm comfortable to be this way, a simple muslimah, I'm proud with my own fashion which maybe is the D-list in current fashion, well it didn't bothered me at all C: 

I chose , to be my real being, to be simple, to be modest and moderate. I just want to be a good slave to my Creator, I just want to be a person that give a good memory on every person in my life, I want to contribute something for my religion and community and none of it has got to do with my flawless looks face or my fashionable dress unless people started to judge you on how flawless your skin is or how stunning your dress is but Allah never looks on those

I won't let those giant cosmetics and fashion industry  whose make a zillion amount of money every month, to tell me on how I should looks or on how I should dress, I'm a free woman. Well, this is my thought, this is my choice, I will never force it on you and for you, it's your choice. Just don't lost in your own enthusiasm. Don't let it makes your life difficult and don't make it as your priority. For me, Islam is beautiful, once you adopted it in your daily life you'll be beautiful as well, yes, as simple as that ladies and you'll be a fabulous-forever muslimah! Inshaallah C:

My note to Allah

The pleasures of the world are deceitful; they promise more than they give. They trouble us in seeking them, they do not satisfy us when possessing them and they make us despair in losing them. As clouds are blown away by the wind, the thirst for material pleasures will be driven away by the utterance of the Lord's name.

A 'Special' Call?

Well, the real honey :D

I guess, I can't help it, I need to spill it out here. Well ladies please consider this, I think logically, a 'special' call like 'honey' or 'baby' or 'sayang'  is just for your husband not for your boyfriend. Your husband deserved it because, he gives his words to:

1. Gives full commitment on you
2. Protects you from any harms
3. Guides and help you in your daily life
4. Provides you a shelter, foods and compassions

So, do you think your boyfriend deserved that 'special' call just because he said:

1. He loves you more then anything in this world?
2. He misses you every breath he takes?
3. He has no secrets upon you even a very private things?
4. He will marry you definitely one day?

well I don't think so and you know, deep in your little heart, none of it was assured. He may not married you because of so many reasons, yes we don't know what will happened in a future, it may goes another way around from what we expected. I used to read or heard a case where the boyfriend beats his girlfriend or in an extreme case even murdered his girlfriend, so gross! are you serious lady, to marry that kind of person he? He don't even your husband yet but he treated you so badly and you can forget about that 'chauvinistic' part of him after 5 minutes when he told you that he actually love you damn much? OMG, don't be silly! so preserved it to your husband for whatever 'special' things you have got, he's the one that deserved your best not your boyfriend, don't give a very special treats to 'random' guy just because he keeps spill out all sweet words and promises to you, be wise, moderate and modest. We know, sometimes we just can't control everything and it just happened, but we have to give a shot, don't blame on others, you choose it to be that way. Well, just a general reminder for you and me the choice is of course yours. 

Ok that's it for now, hey I need to rest so have a good day ahead buddies! Oh and credit to my  friend, that actually mentioned about this thing, about a muslimah that posted on her fb, mentioned her bf, and said something like 'sayang'(Honey, darling) and 'rindu' to __________ (The bf) publicly?  Oh please, i need a fresh air!

❒ Single ❒ Taken ✔ Caring enough about my grades/future/religion to not mess it up right now on something temporary.

Today in History

DJ: Ok ladies and gentlemen, ready for the next challenge! For today, I will give you a question on the history, well don't worry, it's a real easy question that will give you a chance to hold a thousand bucks in your hand!  
DUndururum dum! Drum roll! 
So the question is...................................... 
In what year, Tiger Woods' sex scandal with some women was released? Easy right, ok give me a shot, I'm right here waiting for your call folks!
What?!!! OMG, I can't believe this, since when Tiger Woods' XXX scandal has become a history? So if I don't know, means that I was out-of-dated person or maybe you can call me hillbilly? I was startled with the question and pinch my cheek to make sure I'm not dreaming! What a world, there's so many other remarkable history to be highlighted but why they choose this one? It's nothing to do with us malaysian people or Muslim, Tiger Woods' lifestyle or other people's scandal never give any impacts on ours either good or bad, why do we have to give much attention on such things? By the way, did you know that  June 5th 1967 is The Six-Day War in Middle East, I just knew it too LOL

5th June 1967 : The Six-Day War begins when Israel launches simultaneous attacks against Egypt and Syria, Jordan also joined the fray, but the Arab coalition was no match for Israel's proficient armed forces. In six days of fighting, Israel occupied the Gaza Strip and the Sinai Peninsula of Egypt, the Golan Heights of Syria, and the West Bank and Arab sector of East Jerusalem, By the time the United Nations cease-fire took effect on June 11, Israel had more than doubled its size.

Or maybe this is a boring fact, so I'll give you something more interesting,  June 5th 2008 is one chapter of the series of fluctuating petrol prices in Malaysia. So on June 5th 2008 the petrol prices were increased from RM 1.58 per liter to RM 2.581 per liter for Diesel, from RM 1.92/liter to RM2.704/liter for RON97 and from RM 1.88/liter to RM 2.62/liter for RON95 and now RM 2.70/ liter for RON97. Ok I know, it is not really historic, whatever, it's better than to remember other's historical scandal's date, isn't it? Well ok, up to you guys, to make anything as history of your life, even the day you are listening to such question on air, could be a history! 

Have a great day ahead.

Why should I believe in God?

Assalamualaykum...good day everyone!

Why should I believe in God? Does God really exists? 

First off, don't go crazy when someone throw those questions straight on your face because they maybe really want to find the truth and if you have this kind of questions in your mind whether you are Muslim or non-muslim, don't go to Shaikh Google, yes I know, he is always available, very easy to access but please don't. Shut down your laptop, open the source that will give you absolute answer from the God's words which is the Quran (With translation if you don't understand arabic), it may just cost you less than 50bucks, you can cut your weekly movie spends or your monthly shopping mania or the most easy way is just to go to the nearest Masjid and find the holy Book there for FREE! So here is some points to be pondered on from brother Abdul Rahman Murphy and Nouman Ali Khan. I tell you, it worth listening!

The Most Wanted Man Died?

Rest In Peace
Innalillahi wa innaIllaihi Raji'un, (We belong to Allah and to Him we return), al-Qaeda leader, Osama bin Laden was died, killed by the US forces, it's a real hot news, wasn't it, even I am not certain if this news is not a fake? Everyone talked about it, massive updates in facebook, twitter and all newspapers. We know that, numerous people was died along the mouse-and-cat game, future of so many people were ruined for one man and they make it like, Osama was represented the whole Muslim, as if he did violent, other Muslims are surely did the same. Yes, it's a combo set, blind prejudice, crazy hatred gazing head-to-toe and unfair judgement towards Muslims and Obama called it as a justice, they said it was a great victory and they decided to burry his body at the sea, was Osama really died or was he really existed! Some even said, Osama's photo was unprofessionally photoshopped to make he look death.

But something just crossed in my mind. So, what's next after the death of Obama Osama? It's a good news if Osama Obama pull out his army of the Afghanistan and Iraq, stop the force and leave Islamic countries alone, as there is no reason to stay because the mouse was died, but will he? And if there is a bomb suicidal case happens anywhere or if any building crash by the  Jet with no pilot inside,  will they pointed it out to al-Qaeda or Muslims? Oh wait! Or maybe a new black-sheep terrorist will arise and US can use him to proceed their agenda on Muslim countries? Who know what will happen next? Allahuala'lam, only Allah knows. Well, wait and see.

RIP Obama Osama bin Laden. Look, Osama,Obama,Osama,Obama,Osama,Obama! OMG quite a confusing name though, even the news reporter mistakenly mentioned that Obama is dead! 

Well, Only Allah knows the truth and only Him will gives the justice to all. We are all gonna meet in hereafter, and there the truth will be revealed and no bodies can escape not even the most wealthy or the most powerful person on earth.

Lets Travel to The Past!!

Time machine! Woah time to travel to the past!

Well, life is about making a decision and you have to believe that I made a decision to post about this today. Ok, now imagine, I have this time machine and I give you a chance to travel to the past, a year before you were brought in to the world. You tell me, what do you think, you'll see? Yeah, it's your parents whose made decision to spend their whole life together, they decided to get  marred and tadaa after 9 months you are ready to kick the world. When we are still a baby, our parents decide on every single things for us, like what we eat, what we wear, where we go and even the first word rolled out of our tongue, like mummy/daddy, umi/abi. While we are growing up, our parents guide us to make a decision, they give their opinions and advices and our decision was always influenced by their thoughts. But when we are no longer an adolescent, we are the one that made the decision according to our thoughts. Sometimes it comes out with a very good impact and sweet moments but sometimes otherwise happened. 

I've heard some said about if God does exists why there are bad people and why God don't use His power to just created a good human on earth? Simple, Allah can do whatever He wants, and not what we want. He knows everything and He's totally different from any creatures. We were born with a very clean pure heart, no sins, no passions, nothing, like a plain canvas ready to be painted. Well, don't you think that we, human always demand a freedom? So, that what's Allah gives us, a freedom to choose either bright or dark path, either good or bad. God is Fair and He gives us freedom to choose what we want to do, what we want to be and how we want it to be, and at the end, we are the one that would responsible for the choice we had made.  So we can say that, those bad people, they decided to be bad. Perhaps you wanna say that they become bad because of their family background? Like he became a robber because he was born in poor and naive family. Ok now, let use the time machine again. Zuuuuuuuuuuup! 

Cute baby boy born in a very poor family. At 10 years old, he started his first carrier as a small thief because he made decision to steal and not just borrowed. Then, his parents got to know about it and they decided   to punish him like a hell. He chose not to take the lesson and he chose to grasp the hatred deep down his little heart. He chose to let the heartburning inside guides him what to do and there we go, he became a real bad boy. At this point, the parents chose to let him be, acting like they don't care about it, to show him that they disagreed about what he did. They don't approached him wisely and the child did not response to their cold treat. Time goes and each time, he made the decisions by himself, no one forced him, no one urged. He  rounded himself with all bad attitudes because he chose not to learn a good value and not to adopt it in his life. When he was caught by the police and dumped into the prison, he has a choice either to fix his life or to keep it the way he had molded it. See??

Ok, back to the present, yes, we always have to make a decision. The simple one is the decision we make every single day when we wake up about how to approach the day. Are we going to feel sorry for ourselves, or are we going to take responsibility for our own happiness? Will we be the part of the problem or part of the solution? and so forth.All these questions can be bundled up into one package called attitude and attitude can be summed up in one word-choice. We have the choice to make our day joyful, adventuresome, exciting and full of magic! Don't demand that life should be a certain way and when it doesn't meet our expectation, we whine and complain, or we can choose to thank God for giving us more days, so that we can spend it wisely. Lets start to choose to be a good daughter, sister, friend, worker and student. Yes at the end, attitude is a real big deal. You feel me?

Have great day ahead buddies :)

Politics! Oh, feel good?

Assalamualaykum..Good day everyone!

Something bothered me, one of my friend suggests me to write on current issues in Malaysia, but I was hesitated to do so when I read the newspaper.  I don't know, what I feel about this, uninterested maybe or disappointed? Shall I give my opinion on that XXX video of Datuk T, or on Datuk S doubted vow (mubahalah)  or maybe on that party politic D battle things, or on  mystical disturbance at Y school (Oh so many issues, isn't it) ?? Switch on your TV and watch the news or take your lunch at mamak stall, or lepak in family meeting at the dining room, everything you heard is Politic, Politic, Politic! I am not against politics  but the problem is those mental people who practice politic and those that are so fanatic, well system can be change but people? 

It is so pathetic to see the cold war between different parties politic followers, for example the follower of U party will not attend the wedding ceremony of someone that he knew the follower of H party, or if the follower of H party was in a trouble, the follower of party U won't help him or when someone from H party was knocked on the door of  U party's follower, he pretended not to hear anything, or when the owner of the shop is from party U even it was just behind his house, the party H's follower will  spend his money to find another shop that owned by same party as him even if it's 10km away from his house! Funny huh?! 

I just wanna say, don't let politics TELL you how to TREAT people, seriously we need to wake up. God gives us, the unseen miracle on the upper side of our body, use your brain, compete wisely with good strategy. Stop acting and fighting like a child, please grow up. Stop bad-mouthing each others because we are brothers and sisters in Islam. Never, never throw a mud to people, because at the end, you will have a dirty hand! and my conclusion is, I decided not to write on current issues in my newspapers' country, cause I think, it is not worth it!

Mood: Political nausea. Dizzy!!!

Hey Ladies, Dress Up!

Assalamualaykum ladies and gentlemen, there are some posts before about the dress code for Muslim ladies, but I've summarized it all in a simple words on this photo, inshaallahu Taala, feel free to share and spread it. Have a bless and awesome day dear all!!
