Reflection

BismillahirRahmaanirRaheem

Assalamualaikum Warahmatullah Wabarakaatuh

Firstly, I’d like to apologise that I have not been posting anything for such a long time…This year has been such a packed and insightful year, as I entered a new level of education and began to reflect on what do i really know about Islam? The way I pray, the way I fast, the things I do..why ? The things I do suuch as tahlil ceremonies, maulid an-Nabiy etc are they even allowed in Islam? I started researching  deeply into this matter and realised that what I may thing is a small matter and is considered fine if I do it with the right intention, may be something that could lead to syirik. Hence, the constant emptiness I felt in the past is starting to be filled with awareness of every single thing I’m doing, that Allah gave me the capabilities and resources to research in turath books and to not just follow blindly whatever the society has been doing. It awakened in me  a new sense of awareness and internalisation of who I am and what I am here for. I discovered a methodology that would really help me in disciplining myself to avoid manipulation of the ahkam and to stick to the path of the three best generations of Islam: the companions, the generation after that, and the geenration after that. Books have became my best friend as I spent hours at the library pouring over them, trying t absorb as much as I can. Yet, still finding myself, as I traveled deeper and deeper into the ocean of Allah’s knowledge, I find myself more and more overcome by the darkness of Jahl   and increasingly aware of how little I know and how vast His knowledge is.

Alhamdulillah a’laa kulli ni’mah..

Hence, I’ve yet to have the time to go through all the posts here because I know that some of them may not really be accurate..I’d really appreciate it if anyone of you dear readers here to alert me if you come across anything inaccurate..wa jazakumullah khayr

Till then, pray for me to have time to post the valuable life lessons that I’v learnt this year

Thank you for understanding

Wasssalam

Nourishment…

BismillahirRahmaanirRaheem

I have alhamdulillah completed my exams a few weeks ago. I have planned lots of projects and posts to further develop and diversify the content on this blog.

But, as Allah says in Surah Al-Anfaal verse 30…

Upon completing my exams, I suffered from severe iman deterioration due to several factors, among which is mega time wastage due to the lack of motivation to be productive and also fatigue from non-stop ‘productivity’(which is just an excuse for me to sleep away 2/3 of each and every day). Not forgetting the food (junk food) I’ve been stuffing myself with plus the lack of exercise(I had a knack for not being punctual sadly:( and hence, I usually breeze walk or run for about 700m every single day to get to school on time)

So, alhamdulillah, I managed to slowly nourish back my iman beginning with this post here today:) I sourced for sites to motivate me to sustain this nourishment so as not to return back to those dark times..SubhanAllah, only He knows what I really needed as I found these sites here: http://www.islamicthinking.info/    and   http://productivemuslim.com/how-to-maintain-your-motivation-strengthen-willpower-part-1/    and    http://productivemuslim.com/how-to-maintain-your-motivation-strengthen-willpower-part-2/   and    http://productivemuslim.com/top-energy-foods-to-increase-productivity/

Do check them out!:D

In addition, I found this amazing du’a from islamicthinking.info:

and this…

So..do I deserve to cut myself some slack and chill a while due to all the ‘good’ I’ve done so far? I don’t think so…!

and this….

"hmm..I wonder what the mountains thought of when I was born..." *sarcasm* Who am I to "relax" for weeks when Rasulullahs PBUH did not take any time off from da'wah? Who am I really, compared to him??

“hmm..I wonder what the mountains thought of when I was born…” *sarcasm*
Who am I to “relax” for weeks when Rasulullahs PBUH did not take any time off from da’wah? Who am I really, compared to him?? (Being hard on myself gives me motivation for self-improvement:D)

I request your du’a for Allah to help me and all the brothers and sisters out there to sustain this nourishment as indeed this is a test I believe that is common to us all..

All the good and beneficial stuff here is from the Most High and all discrepancies here are from yours truly

Jazakumullah Khayr Wassalaamu a’laikum wr. wb.:)

A great scholar who has left us

BismillahirRahmaanirRaheem

Sheikh Al-Bouti

Just like Sumayyah,

You were killed for your bravery,

To speak the Truth to humanity,

In a world void of peace and tranquility..

And just like her, you’ll be rewarded for eternity!(InshaAllah)

Your face shone brightly,

Revealing the peace and wisdom within, verily,

In your heart and soul, truly,

O Allah, forgive Him and on him have Mercy!

That day, humanity suffered a great lost,

Your demise came propelling at our hearts with great force,

Our voices became coarse,

Our eyes were filled with tears of lost

O Allah, grant him true Martyrdom,

Grant him the pleasure of seeing you in Al-A’dn

O Allah, give us strength to continue doing,

What he was constantly advocating,

That is: To spread peace by uniting,

All the Muslims, with each other, connecting..

And to know that our real enemy,

Is not our brothers and sisters verily,

But it is none other than Syaithan the Accursed, truly

So stop obeying him and treat him as our enemy!

And thus…

Make peace with humanity:)

As…united we stand,

Divided we fall,

As an Ummah we defend(against our #1 enemy),

Our religion, Islam, Allah’s call..

Sheikh Al-Bouti

Sheikh Mohammed Saeed Ramadan al-Bouti, martyred on the 21st of March, 2013, while he was teaching in Al-Iman Mosque, Damascus.

He was killed by a suicide bomber.

Innaa lillah wa innaa ilayhi raaji’uun

(“Indeed we belong to Allah , and indeed to Him we will return.” 2:156)

Salaam…

Ps. To those who say that he is pro-Assad, to me, he isn’t

What he actually said was that our real enemy is the disbelievers(those who are against Islam and seek every singly opportunity to destroy the Muslims), so by dividing ourselves(in rioting), we are actually acting according to their plan, as divided we fall.

So some of the individuals out there considered him pro-Assad as he didn’t support their anti-government movement, as according to him(the Sheikh), it is better that we unite first and then go against our real enemies who seek to destroy Islam.

And…Allah knows best!

My plans for this new school year

Assalamua’laikum

(As you know, we all plan but Allah Almighty determines)

Dear brothers and sisters in Islam, I have just started a new school year. As you know, a new year means new subjects and also loads to learn. I will also be taking my GCE O levels next year InsyaAllah. InsyaAllah I will be posting a topic on hadith from a book we are using in school from Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, ministry of tarbiyyah and ta’leem (education) insyaAllah. I will also be posting tafseer of surah Al-Kahf, also thought in school InsyaAllah. This year, I will be studying Qada’ and Qadar (fate) and also about the Prophet PBUH in Tawheed lesson. InsyaAllah, I will be posting it as soon as I finish a topic. For Tawheed, we will be using a book from Al-Azhar University of Cairo by Husain Muhammad Al-Misri. I will also be starting Qiraat classes on Friday nights. InsyaAllah I will post whatever I have learnt. The posting of new topics will start next week InsyaAllah, as I have only started learning the academic subjects (Elementary Maths, Additional Maths, Chemistry, Physics, Geography, Social Studies, English Language and Malay Language) and also the arabic language and a teeny bit of Tawheed  this week. I can’t post this weekend as I am going for a camp tomorrow (Friday) organised by my school. So InsyaAllah, I will be posting next week on weekends. I will also be posting from the classes I will be attending at Mydin Mosque by Al-Fadhil Ustaz Tengku Muhammad Fauzi on Tuesday night using Riyadus-Salikin book 4. But the frequency of the Riyadus Salikin post will not be very frequent as on Tuesdays, I start school at 7:15 am to 4:30 pm with a break for Zuhr and lunch. I will be exhausted. InsyaAllah, I will try my best to attend the class. Regarding my Imaan series, InsyaAllah I will continue it in March as I need to do lots of research and visits to the library. (By the way, books by Osman Nuri Topbas are awesome!) I sincerely apologise for not being able to post lately. InsyaAllah, I will be able to stick to my promise above as a Muslimah never breaks her promise as that would be alike a Munafiq (two faced “Muslim”, in a bad way).

All the good here is from Allah Almighty while all the bad is from me.

May Allah Almighty grant both you and me the time for da’wah. Whoever makes time for Allah, He will make time from them.

Make dua for me.

Wassalaam
