| Incoming call

DEATH IS KNOCKING ON THE DOOR:

Death is an inevitable end for all of us. However, this life is merely the beginning. We are living a trial, an exam that has two outcomes, failure or success.

How could the soul not give pause to the call, the call of worship to its Creator? To Allah, the most Merciful, the most Forgiving? Or to the beauty of the first bird's call just before Fajr--the call that awakes every soul to the worship of Allah?

It is depressing to ponder upon our sins and our ungratefulness. However, if we remember Allah (swt) in everything we do, then InshaAllah our death will lead to success into Jannat Al-Firdaws.

"Those who remember Allah, standing, sitting, and lying on their sides, and reflect on the creation of the heavens and the earth: "O Lord, You have not created this for nothing. Glory be to you! So safeguard us from the punishment of the fire."
(Surat Al-Imran: 191)

الَّذِينَ يَذْكُرُونَ اللَّهَ قِيَامًا وَقُعُودًا وَعَلَى جُنُوبِهِمْ وَيَتَفَكَّرُونَ فِي خَلْقِ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ رَبَّنَا مَا خَلَقْتَ هَذَا بَاطِلًا سُبْحَانَكَ فَقِنَا عَذَابَ النَّارِ

Death is knocking on your door. Are you ready to meet your Creator?

We won doubles for today,alhamdulillah,and I can only say that for the time being :),going to this extent and having to be the BS is such and honour from Allah,a gift from Him soothing and coaxing me telling that I have to be 'izzah with the islam in me,
Again,praises to Him.

| Epic speech

Did you ever imagine, the least thing that you ever expected was Allah answering your inner conflicts in the sweetest way ever.

In the midst of me trying to see positive impact on this thing , He answered it.

Aisha (ra) again says: "He spoke in such a way that the words were spaced out so that those who sat with him remembered them."

#this was the mentioned by San Muqaddim in his opening speech.Epic speech ever!

The formula was simple,in whatever action we do,if it follows the sunnah,we get rewards.And even by talking,a simple action,we get rewards because we follow his sunnah.

So I was touched to the fullest by his speech simply because I didn't open my heart to that extent in order to feel such legendary feelings.The feeling of doing his sunnah.

Alhamdulillah, I got it back.

Again,such beautiful sayings ;

"They said: 'The Messenger of Allah used to talk little and every thing was expressed in this brief talk. In his speech, there was no defect of excess or brevity. The words came one after another like pearls. Whoever heard them remembered them. He was the sweetest in talk among his companions. He used to keep silent for long and not talk without necessity. He used not to talk evil words and what he talked was just."


We won for today,alhamdulillah, all praises to Him purely :)

| The very thing

status quo : the ummah is in need of help

Yes I know,we have no time to talk over petty matters.We have no time to take into consideration things that won't help in rising the ummah,that won't lead to ustaziatul alam.

Sometimes,I think.my posts are merely post of emotions and what I feel,I salute my akhawats who write posts that are 'haraki' and should be about boostering us to serve the ummah since the ummah is  very critical.

Look around us, how can we sit down and have a cup of coffee when we still don't have a khalifah,How can we sit back and relax when muslims are only islams on identification cards instead of their hearts,How can talk about furu' when the wajib is forgotten?

A big fat question mark right here,on my very own face.

And so I regret of me entering this very thing,regret but trying to find a positive thought on this particular thing.

Oh Allah,forgive me if my niyah at first was not because of You,can I renew my niyah to make this thing get your blessings.

Amin

And no matter what,this thing bugs me,

| somewhere over the rainbow

Whenever some thunderstorm hits you,you never know whether you'll run away from it or you'll stay,enchanting the zikrullah and let it bypass you.


Yes,it won't be sunny throughout the day,because Allah can always shower al-ardh with his magical rain.Hujan rahmat as we people call it.


But alas,don't despair,the rain won't stop putting a smile from your face,especially when you know,that right after being poured by rain,somewhere over there,above us all,in the great blue sky,will be painted,colourful rainbows,the most prettiest that you've ever come across.It'll lighten up your heart and make your day.




Today,it was like that,a lot of things came up and I thought I couldn't face it.I admit I was sad,And I thought I was going to run out of the problems,yes,run as far as i can because no one will catch me right?


But who am I kidding,who am I running away from? As I go on running,I tend to keep running in circles,keep returning to the same place.Until an ukhti,to be precise my kakak naqibah gave me this verse given by my Lord,Allah.



Say:whether you hide what is in your heart or manifest it,Allah knows it, and he knows whatever is in the heavens and whatever i in the earth,and Allah has power over all things


Ali Imran:29


(tears rolling down cheek)


Problems will always show up,and we will always be given choices.Whether to face it like a man,or run off like a chicken but as a hero,tell it to Allah,because he will always show the good of everything,and I repeat,everything.


People will judge,and continuously judge until they lose their heads off,but I know someone who will never judge me,who will always love me for who I am,and thus,I should be grateful and not run away from what He gave me.
And yes,it is Him The Most Merciful of All.








I love Allah,to the fullest 
(I think I can't manage to put a fullstop on that I guess,teehee!)
