how far are we going?

Alhamdulillah,its already the 18th of Ramadhan,sadly the Maghfirah phase is about to end.To what extent have we put effort in order to gain maghfirah from the Ghafur!A saying from an ustaz giving a talk at surau at-taqwa that, as far as the phase of rahmah passed by,how many out of all these billions on earth,have felt the Rahmah Allah gave? how many have felt that they just want to quadruple the amount of ibadah they are doing right now?how many have the ability to differentiate between the bad and not so bad things to do right away?Its not as easy as it sounds to totally transform into someone who we call 'bertaqwa',but it is worth trying.

Well,my heart right now is pounding while doing the countdowns to fly to the land of anbiya'.thinking of it,makes me shudder.excited and scared.its exciting and i'm glad to be lucky enough to walk on the pavements where Rasulullah used to walk on!and also the pavements the sahabah used walk on.besides,we know that a new building upholding the biggest clock on earth is in mecca.it is said,it has overshadowed greenwich to become the centre of time zones for the whole world!

does it come to some of us that , mecca is developing alright! or some may think that, at last islam is rising up again,we shan't be fooled anymore,but have we seen that beyond these current thoughts,it actually shows one of the 'sign' towards the Day of Judgement.In the second hadith of Imam Nawawi's forty hadith,there was a part where it mentioned that gigantic buildings are the sign of the universe coming to its end!


HADITH 2 
 Also on the authority of Omar, who said : One day while we were sitting with the messenger of Allah there appeared before us a man whose clothes were exceedingly white and whose hair was exceedingly black; no signs of journeying were to be seen on him and none of us knew him. He walked up and sat down by the prophet. Resting his knees against his and placing the palms of his hands on his thighs, he said:"O Muhammed, tell me about Islam". The messenger of Allah said: "Islam is to testify that there is no god but Allah and Muhammed is the messenger of Allah, to perform the prayers, to pay the zakat, to fast in Ramadhan, and to make the pilgrimage to the House if you are able to do so." He said:"You have spoken rightly", and we were amazed at him asking him and saying that he had spoken rightly. He said: "Then tell me about eman ."He said:"It is to believe in Allah, His angels, His books, His messengers, and the Last Day, and to believe in divine destiny, both the good and the evil thereof." He said:"You have spoken rightly". He said: " Then tell me about ehsan ." He said: "It is to worship Allah as though you are seeing Him, and while you see Him not yet truly He sees you". He said: "Then tell me about the Hour". He said: "The one questioned about it knows no better than the questioner." He said: "Then tell me about its signs." He said: "That the slave-girl will give birth to her mistress and that you will see the barefooted, naked, destitute herdsman competing in constructing lofty buildings." Then he took himself off and I stayed for a time. Then he said: "O Omar, do you know who the questioner was?" I said: "Allah and His messenger know best". He said: "He was Jebreel (Gabriel), who came to you to teach you your religion."

p narrated by Muslim



There's no scaring us off or whatsoever but it's more towards letting us feel some self realisation.The time we live on earth is within a blink of an eye.Utilize properly the time and get ready with a lot of what we call 'bekalan' akhirat.reciting the Al-quran,praying Solah,doing dzikir's and doa's,plenty of good dees to be done and the list continues.there's no time in turning back nor pausing and stopping by.we should start packing and keep on going!come on,lets move it guys!

so with the mixture of feelings,i have to get myself well prepared to go to mecca and medina.imagine,being a visitor of Allah and being closer to Him.Able to cry and weep till the tears get exhausted to leak out and eyes puffed because of regretfulness being a terrible servant to Him.Able to do tawaf for umpteenth times till the legs get sore.Able to i'ktikaf in masjidil haram and masjidil nabawi till the body aches.Able to perform zillions of prayers,recite the 'love letters' in front of Him!SubhanaAllah,the feeling is again unbelievable and this is felt before even going there yet.(tears filling the tear glands)


May Allah be the One and Only and let us only think of Him as our final destiny,InsyaAllah

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!

caca merba tulisan si penulis

I always act impulsively, be it planned or unplanned. Like when I'm writing this very moment, is unplanned business, I simply write what I feel, with a little bit of add ons and thus, my writings are ready to be publicized. macam masak mee segera je, campak-campak dan cepat masak. Its not that its wrong, only when its finished, its all over the place. cacamerba gitu.

I want it to be properly arranged, nicely put in words, explanations and analogies so that what is presented, is beneficial to everyone, especially to me who reads back my own writings.

emotions are to be publicized accordingly and kept accordingly.

May Allah preserve our writings, and we only write which is AlHaq.
