the grass on the other side is greener


the grass on the other side is always greener
its an english proverb which was told in a story i read ages ago
when i was in primary school.
it was regarding a goat
which was always unsatisfied of the grass in its area
and thinking that the grass on the other side of the village
was much better and greener than its
once the goat had the opportunity to shift to the next village
it was then the goat realised that the village where it used to live
was much greener and better!!!
the moral of the story
is to teach us to be grateful of what we have
no matter what
just remind ourself that Allah
has gave us the best
if we have a car and we get jealous of those with bigger cars
think of those who don't even have a transport to move here and there
if we don't always eat delicious meal everyday
think of those in Gaza who are starving and have difficulties to eat anything!
if we don't own fancy attires and so
think of those who wear rags and dirty cloths
theres a hadith about gratitude which will make us think back
It is reported on the authority of Ibn ‘Abbas that there was (once) a downpour during the life of the Apostle (may peace and blessings be upon him Upon this the Apostle (may peace and blessings be upon him) observed: Some people entered the morning with gratitude and some with ingratitude (to Allah). Those who entered with gratitude said: This is the blessing of Allah, and those who entered with ingratitude said: Such and such asterism was right. It was upon this that the verse was revealed: I swear by the setting of the stars to the end and make your provision that you should disbelieve it. (Sahih Muslim – Book #001, Hadith #0135)
how grateful enough are we?

Berita besar

Di saat seorang ukhti datang dengan berita bakal melangsungkan bahtera perkahwinan, Tentunya hatinya diselebungi bahagia, gembira, ketenangan dan redha dengan aturan Allah,
Di saat yang sama, seorang ukhti lain datang dengan berita, bahtera perkahwinan tertangguh, si jejaka mengundur diri, katanya ingin mengalih fokus dari fikir tentang jodoh. Tentunya hatinya diselubungi hiba, kusut dan sedih dan paling penting, juga akur dengan caturan Allah.
Allahu T-T
Dua berita besar,  Berbeza watak, Berbeza perasaan.
Yg sama adalah,  Berpaksikan Allah.
Indahkan menjadi muslim yang sebenar-benarnya!

Jim ra ha, bukan sekadar luka.

Kepala sebelah kiri berdenyut. Throbbing but diffused pain. Mengganggu konsentrasi betul sakit kepala ni.

Baru kita sedar nikmat kesihatan apabila dicuit dengan sedikit kesakitan.

bismillah, where should i start...

Ceritanya, sekarang ni, i am actually facing my final semester examinations (Im actually halfway through in finishing this medical degree!)

And so I did, with the help of bayan apps, I searched ج ر ح .

which if spelt together, جرح .

There is a signboard which i always see whenever i enter the buidling at my faculty for clinical rounds, …
