Muslim





Abdullah ibn Umar R.A. reported that the Messenger of Allah
SWT said: 


“The Muslim is the brother of his fellow Muslim; he should not mistreat him or let him down. Whoever meets the needs of his brother, Allah will meet his needs, and whoever relieves a Muslim of some distress, Allah will relieve him of some of the distress of the day of resurrection". 


(Bukhari)

There was once...











There was once, I was lost and worried...
Worry about things that doesn't make any sense..
I had tried and failed so many times..
Exams, works, love and countless issues..
Every time I failed, 
I keep on asking the same questions over and over again..
Why am I here at this point again?
I seek for answers and followed my heart..
Like the road not taken, it was dark and horrifying 
When I took the path, I thought I saw the Light
but it was just some plain neon lights..
At one point, I was thinking that I fell too deep and no way out.
Despair and frustration surround my life..
One day, upon His mercy had open my heart not my eyes..
The old manual book of life lay on top of my shelves..
which already have answers to all my quest...

Alhamdullilah...

Saturday Outing - Cotton and Cotton On

Apparently my mother insisted to go to Geylang, hence we all went there for the first time yesterday.
It was lovely, there are many reasonable clothes and also pre-hari raya sale from 27th May to 6th june ( i think). Anyways, since the exchange rates was high ( 100SGD = RM240), I decided to buy only if they offer really cheap price compare to home. 


You just have to calculate every time you want to buy something.
sometimes you look at the price, yeahh!~ 10SGD ONLY! wow! its really cheap!
 (The neurons always gives my brain huge excitement whenever they display the figure $10 or $9.90 or 10,000 won 
but remember x2.4 then you get the (>.<) feeling)


But I did found some cheap materials here ;) ! 


They also display lots of $2 per meter of materials here..but u have to check and look what kind of materials you want to buy, don't just simply buy something for the sake of the price. Like I used to.
Wow..RM5! I want! ended up bawak balik barang merepek!



Baru je cakap, my sister asked me for $5 shawl or pashmina ( terlupa), I said "why not?" but then I checked the materials, I told her.." If you want to wear this as your hijab, you must wear the egypt/arabic style cause the moment you use your pin and brooch on it , those pins/brooches will tear this material down..perhaps you can think as $5 for 3 kali sahaja pemakaiannya...worth or not?"
Then berfikir. Then x jadi beli : D

Trust me, I've just bought the same one at Giant and berlubang sana sini..luckily I dont mind wearing hijab with 1.5cm hole sana sini.  ( Definisi selekeh boleh diaplikasikan disini) 

After that, we went to Arab street as usual to buy grandma eid's baju kurung materials. Last year a lady said to us before eid, "Paling murah kak, tak dapat lagi la kat singapore ni $10 per meter japanese/english cotton untuk tahun ni.." 

and this year price is $10 per meter (-_-). Apakah? Mom's bought some anyways. Tidak dapat dielakkan due to some tailors kena hantar around this time, if not raya 2012 baru hang dapat pakai baju raya. 
Kalau tak kisah xpe, tapi kalau hangpa dah mula meroyan..then sapa nak jawap? 
Istighfar la banyak-banyak yer?








Angah cannot tahan already. tertido tunggu mereka memilih. 

Overall biasa-biasa je. We were actually excited due to Singapore sale. Me and my friend were aiming for crazy sales at cotton on/cotton on kids. Unfortunately, habuk  pun takde. I mean we went there and there aren't as what we expected ..serupa macam takde sale je..hence we were disappointed a bit. But lets be positive! Duit kami selamat! syukur Alhamdullilah. 

Paling best. Quote from my mother " Dah tak boleh lagi kita beli kat Singapore ni walaupun sale, the exchange rates is high so we still rugi and Malaysia lagi murah (depends on what kind of things that you want to buy). 

Okiela. Kaki dah sakit. tapi nak share jugak info with my friends...just in case you guys planning nak gie Singapore around this month. 

OwhYeah, Yesterday , when I was at Fair price (Singapore local grocery store), 
I found that yesterday 28th May was the official launching of Universal Studios, Singapore from their local newspaper. 

Itu sahaja buat masa kini. Take care!~ and Happy weekends. 

Saturday outing - Baby Nana (Love)

The Dunya is like Salt water...



"And they said Dunya is like Salt water, whenever you increase in drinking it, you will also increase in thirst."


This morning I remind myself that changes in life is good especially towards the right path
(defining the right path as believing in God above). I am sure that I heard somewhere from my Islamic education classes during my high school years that the greatest challenge would be from inside rather than outside.

For all I know, anybody could just buy a shawl and cover their head ( hijab) or grow beard or buy "songkok" (head cover for Muslim men in some Asian countries) and claim to be a  Muslim. But not everyone can control them self from many daily sins that prevent us from being a Muslim or a "good" Muslim . 

What do we mean by "good" Muslim? Is there any "bad" Muslim out there? Do we call our brothers and sisters who rarely perform their daily prayers as a "bad" Muslim? The answer is I don't know because I only know Muslim is Muslim. Like previous post, i dont really believe there is such thing as semi Muslim, modern Muslim, open minded Muslim or radical Muslim. This is because Muslim is Muslim.  

" If you see something you don't like in your brother try to find from one to seventy excuses for him. If you can't find an excuse , say, " There might be an excuse but I don't know it"

- Iman Jafar as- Sidiq (ra)

Talking about people is what I tried to prevent myself from . I have to admit that I love to talk. I used to talk about things that happen to me daily to my close friends. Some about work and all the time about people. Some about praising how good a person can be, sometimes its about how crazy people could be. Sometimes I got so excited I forgot that I was talking about their weaknesses which eventually turned to discuss on bad things about other -_-! (umpat-ketupat). 

Unfortunately, this is my biggest challenge so far. I hope and pray that the very least I can do is trying to talk only GOOD/POSITIVE things about people and work. 


Note: Avoid saying negative things about people no matter how sengal, or mad them or you are. InsyaAllah. One at a time. :) 


" To fight against one's desires is the greatest of all fights"
- Iman Ali 

I am of course not a scholar, I am also like any other Muslim in this world trying and struggling to be on the right track. I pray that if any of my posts or quotes that I've collected through the net will help you to think of God and perhaps ease your daily stress and pain. Alhamdullilah. I want nothing more than to please Him above. :)



"Whoever desires the harvest of the Hereafter-We increase for him in his harvest.And whoever desires the harvest of this world- We give him thereof, but there is not for him in the Hereafter any share" 

- Surah Ash Shura [42:20]

Daily Reminder


The feeling was absolutely wonderful, wandering around watching every person that walks beside you or in front of you and didn't feel weird at all. The short moment of invisible mode. <3


Whoever doesn't? Lets look forward and plan for a better future!~~


 Some people only see what they want to see, some fail to see what others were trying to show them.


<3 SubhanaAllah <3

Every Minute for 60 seconds.

Thank you Mina for reminding us <3


I need to remind myself constantly that all this anger could lead our heart to stray. 
Nauzubillah. 

”Our Lord! Cause not our hearts to stray after Thou hast guided us, and bestow upon us mercy from Thy Presence. Lo! Thou, only Thou, art the Bestower.”
[3:8] The Holy Quran
