THe Little One

To write this post, it took me 5 months. While during that time, only Allah swt how my life has changed, how so many things has happened with Allah's swt wills. Looking back, it is amazing how our life has been shaped by Allah swt so perfectly and so dearly that He never let a second past in our life unless it is what He has planned for us.

Yes, when the last time I post in this blog, he was still inside, tuck in so warmly and growing so rapidly inside. Now, he is nearly a month old, and still rapidly growing, and gaining more weight. Alhamdulillah, this little bundle of joy brought happiness in the family, and bring the family closer together. Since his existence, our home has received so many visitors both from near and far.

It is a wonderful experience to watch him grow everyday, both in terms of size and intelligence. And like my mother always say: "You will not want to miss even a second of his life. Because it is so wonderful and amazing". He is like a sponge, that will absorb everything that he is being exposed to, be it a plain water or a coffee. Or like a plain white sheet that will show the picture that we had drawn with varieties of shape and colours.

“Sesungguhnya setiap bayi itu dilahirkan dalam keadaan fitrah (suci) seperti kain putih, ibu-bapalah yang mencorakkannya samada menjadi Yahudi, Majusi, atau Nasrani.”

Like my sister in law used to say, how you grow a child actually reflect ourself as a mother to a child, as a child to a mother, as a wife to a husband, and the most importantly as an abid in front of Allah swt. (Kita muhasabah diri balik). Because what our child did is a reflection to ourself. When he/she did something wrong, there must be a sin that we might have done in the past that we haven't repented yet. Or we might have act the same way like he/she did before, and set an example for him/her to follow. It is a simple rule isn't it, and yet we often forget. May Allah swt forgive all of our sins... astaghfirullah...

Doakan saya dapat mendidik this little one dengan baik, utk menjadi hambaNya yg soleh, yg beriman dan bertaqwa!

It is good deed followed by another

Every time I write a new post, this thought always occurred to me: "How long has it been since the last post?". To me, every post is unique as every words written is the result from careful thinking, embraced with emotions, knowledge and experiences that I wanted to share with readers. May Allah swt always showers dear readers with His blessings in this world and hereafter insyAllah. Its interesting how time really flies without waiting for the others even for a split of a second. MasyAllah. There has been a few encounters where I wanted to share a lot, in this blog as the past few months has been such a busy months with so many events that Allah swt has drawn for me, however, thinking of the main reason why this blog was created in the first place, forbid me from exposing much of my personal life. Let it be in my personal diary instead of reciting it in the public ^^.

Thus, in this post, I would like to share a beautiful quote that I pick up from a beautiful book called: "Himpunan Ilmu dan Hikmah (Jilid 1)". This book covers a number of selected hadith in details, which include the histories behind the recitation of the hadith, what the scholars says about the hadith, the hikmah that we can pick up from the hadith etc. One of the quote that really affected me under the explanation for the 9th hadith recited:
"Umar bin 'Abdul Aziz ada berkata: Taqwa bukanlah dengan melakukan qiamullail dan berpuasa pada waktu siang, disamping melakukan maksiat antara kedua-duanya. Tetapi, taqwa ialah melaksanakan apa yang difardhukan oleh Allah swt dan meninggalkan apa yang diharamkan oleh Allah swt. Jika terdapat amalan lain di samping perbuatan itu, ia adalah kebaikan yang ditambah kepada kebaikan yang lain atau seperti yang beliau katakan"

Amazing isn't it. This word caused me to pause for a long period of time and kept me thinking. There were so many sins that we have done, plaited with good deeds (that Allah may not even look at...). Thinking that it is ok..but really, it is really not ok. We might call ourself a muslim, but sometimes, we might not act like one. Let alone becoming a muttaqin. Becoming a muttaqin should be every muslim's dream, before he/she dies, but the dream must come with action and great effort.

Being istiqamah in performing good deed is also part of the effort in becoming a muttaqin
The journey to become a muttaqin is not easy, we must admit, however, the strive in becoming one, starts with the cleansing work that we must perform every second of our life, as we might not realise (or in some cases we do), that the act that we are currently performing might be a sin in front of Allah swt. And as it has been mentioned in the quote above, being a muttaqin is when we perform things that Allah swt has asked us to do, leave the things that He has forbid us to do. While in between those two acts, is just another good deed followed by another one, continuously...

May this little quote leaves us to think deeply of our next action that we decided to take in our life. So that, with this effort, when Allah swt called upon His slaves, we will become among the best level of 'abid in front of Allah swt with the title of "Muttaqin". insyAllah...

p/s please excuse my grammar... ^^,
