In the midst of the increasingly yet mushrooming unbearable workloads, I easily lose my focus and simply ended up ignoring all them. Instead, I'm doing unnecessary activities; sleeping, 'facebooking', blogging and just name it. See, how ignorant I can be.
Is it one form of escapism? Well, if you ask me, it is. PERHAPS.
This actually worries me a lot. I afraid of the consequences if I keep indulging myself into this.
Successful indeed are the believers. Those who offer their prayers with all solemnity and full submissiveness. And those who turn away from Al-laghw. (Almu'minun:1-3)


* Literally, laghv is anything nonsensical, meaningless and vain, which is in no way conducive to achieving one's goal and purpose in life. The Believers pay no heed to such useless things and they show no inclination or interest for them. If by chance they see such things being indulged in, they keep away and avoid them scrupulously, or treat them with utmost indifference. This attitude has been described in Al-Furqan (XXV): 72, thus: " ... if they have to pass by what is vain, they pass by like dignified people."
This is indeed one of the outstanding characteristics of the Believer. He is a person who feels the burden of responsibility at all times; he regards the world as a place of test, and the life as the limited time allowed for the test. This feeling makes him behave seriously and responsibly throughout life just like the student who is taking an examination paper with his whole mind and body and soul absorbed in it. Just as the student knows and feels that each moment of the limited time at his disposal is important and decisive for his future life, and is not inclined to waste it, so the Believer also spends each moment of his life on works which are useful and productive in their ultimate results. So much so that even in matters of recreation and sport, he makes a choice of only those things which prepare him for higher ends in life and do not result in mere wastage of time. For him time is not something to be killed but used profitably and productively.
Besides this, the Believer is a person who possesses a right thinking mind, pure nature and fine taste: he has no inclination to indecent things: he can talk useful and healthy things but cannot indulge in idle talk: he has a fine taste of humour, but is not given to jesting, joking, ridicule, etc. nor can he endure dirty jokes and fun. For him a society in which the ears are never immune from abusive language, back-biting, slander; lying, dirty songs and indecent talk is a source of torture and agony. A characteristic of the promised Paradise is: "therein you will not hear anything vain or useless."

So, lets mujahadah (try with our best) to be a better person, the believers :)

Today, I re-read my previous posts in this blog. It somehow make me smile and I can say that, I miss all those memories. Recently, I enjoy blogwalking instead of writing my own blog. See my recent posts; they’re all only short updates or articles that I copied from another website. People say, ones will do anything for his/her passion. And yes, I admit that blogging is my passion. So, what’s my say for this? Or am I too busy to ignore this blog? I lie if I say I’m not busy at all, especially in this third semester as an IB student with all the assignments to be handed in this semester.

All in the heavens and the earth entreat Him for their needs; a new, mighty task engages Him each day. Which of your Lord's laudable attributes will you twain then deny?
So, how come I claim myself busy if He is far busier than me?
I went back to Kelantan last week, and it’s for five days (I got an extra day compared to other students). This week has been a hard time for me. Well, you know, I left kmb with those unfinished homework and I have to submit them all this week. It was horrible.Even though I’ve tonnes of homework and assignments to be finished, I still indulge myself with sleep. Sometimes, I hate myself for that. I have this so called ‘problem’ since I was in Form 3. Say, if I sleep 5 hours per day, it means that, in a year I sleep for 1825 hours, which equivalent to 74 days. So now, you can just imagine the number of hours I spend, curled up on my comfy beds in this 19 years. (need a GDC to calculate this) It is actually in the state of mind. So, one of my ramadhan intentions- less sleep.

I hope for the best in this ramadhan kareem. insyaAllah. Anyway, I have something to share with you guys; How to achieve tranquility of the heart

P/S: Eventhough i love to sleep, but I hate sleeping in the morning
