Kahwin? Marriage? Matrimony? Nuptial?

I feel like people around me keep talking about that. This includes in Facebook. But don't worry, I'm not gonna talk about this.  I am not even 20 and I don't think I should. Not now. Future? Emmm, who knows? :D Talking about this, I would say it's human nature to love and to be loved. I am not an exception too. I always remind myself not to involve in this. "Atikah, kata nak cari cinta Allah. so jangan la crush kat orang lain ya" Teehee.  I know it sounds funny. So, please, don't giggle!

On a different note,  I went for an outing to MidValley yesterday, just to spend the BB1M - 1 Malaysia Book Voucher. Bought 3 books for RM100. I used to read lots of romance books (Both English and Malay version) but due to some personal reasons, I promised myself not to buy those books anymore. Worse, since I'm bounded to the promise, I ended up borrowing romance novels from my friends. =.- Believe it or not, I've read not one, but three novels in this weekend. So now, I promised  not to buy or read any kind of this book. Changing the book genre that we used to read is hard, but I know it's worth every effort. InshaAllah. Seerah is one of my wishlist :)

I might not able to read those books now, but InshaAllah, I will find appropriate time to enjoy these :) 

Non of those books are academics books. Well, IB books are not easily available in bookstores. Furthermore, I do think my reference books are just enough.

Count The Days

Do you notice any changes on the sidebar? 
3 Months, 2 Weeks and 4 days before IB Exam. 

O Allah, I seek refuge in You from worry and grief, from helplessness and laziness, from cowardice and stinginess, and from overpowering of debt and from oppression of men. May He ease everything.

Colours Of My Life

It's weekend and I joined a gathering (more to a picinic) with the sisters. I know I still have EE, ToK, CAS, and howework unfinished but I don't want to make this as an excuse for not going to that programme. Thanks Almighty God for such beautiful memories and reminders. To say it specifically, we went to Morib Beach, Banting, Selangor. It wasn't bad at all. At least this place reminds me on  the registration day of KMB (My family brought me here and I complained about its wave breaker) I did learn a lot about ukhuwwah. Mentioning "ukhuwwah" reminds me on Prophet Muhammad SAW and Abu Bakr, and Ansor and Muhajirrin.  

A friend of mine shared a beautifully said piece of words yesterday. Bad enough I forget it already. So, I come up with a new version of words xD.

Loving a friend means we bring her/him closer to God. Walk through this dunya together with His guide and keep reminding each other to the path of khoir.

and a story to be shared:

One day, Abu Bakr (R) and Ali (R) were walking towards each other. They passed by each other and neither greeted the other. In arabic culture it is customary for the younger to greet the elder. Later that day Abu Bakr(R) saw Ali (R) and asked him, "Are you upset with me?" because he had not greeted him. ALi (R) replied, "No, but last night I had a dream. In the dream I saw a beautiful palace in paradise. I asked who’s palace it was and an angel told me it is for the brother who greets the other first. I was waiting for you to greet me because I wanted you to have the palace." Abu Bakr then told him, “Last night I had the same dream too. I was waiting for you to greet me because I also wanted you to have the palace.”

See how incredible their ukhuwwah is. Inshallah Allah (SWT) will give us this kind of strength so we can become like them too.

Friends on that Day will be enemies one to another, except al-Muttaqoon (i.e. those who have Taqwah).                                                                                   [Qur’an 43:67]

"Hafidh Ibn Katheer, commenting on this verse, relates a story on the authority of Ali Ibn Abi Talib (ra) and says that any friendship for other than Allah is turned into enmity, except what was in it for Allah the Mighty and Majestic: “Two who are friends for Allah’s sake; one of them dies and is given good news that he will be granted al-Jannah, so he remembered his friend and he supplicated for him, saying: ‘O Allah, my friend used to command me to obey You and to obey Your Prophet (saws) and used to command me to do good and to forbid me from doing evil. And he told me that I will meet You. O Allah, do not let him go astray after me, until you show him what you have just shown me, until You are satisfied with him, just like You are satisfied with me.’ So he is told: ‘Had you known what is (written) for you friend, would you have laughed a lot and cried a little.’ Then his friend dies and their souls are gathered, and both are asked to express their opinions about each other. So each one of them says to his friend: ‘You were the best brother, the best companion and the best friend.’ 

And when one of the two disbelieving friends dies, and he is given tidings of Hellfire, he remembered his friend and he said: ‘O Allah, my friend used to order me to disobey You and disobey Your Prophet, and commanded me to do evil, and forbade me from doing good, and told me that I would not meet You. O Allah, do not guide him after me, until you show him what you have just shown me and until you are dissatisfied with him just like You are dissatisfied with me.’ Then the other disbelieving friend dies, and their souls are gathered, and both are asked to give their opinions about each other. So each one says to his friend: ‘You were the worst brother, the worst companion and the worst friend.”    

So, let us all renew our intentions and may our friendship is showered with God blessing. Writing this brings back my mind to the old days with my buddies in Maahad.

Till then. Love :)

Have faith

So this is my first post of 2012. 09 January 2012- a kind of, significant date for me. I'm just hoping everything turns up well. Anyway, today's the last day of our exam review week, technically, as there're still a few papers that I didn't get. Last semester exam surely indicates my poor performances in studies especially in certain subjects. Most of my friends ' results also were not so good as compared to the previous sem exam. It's understandable that semester 3 was really packed and hectic. Still, what I worried the most is that I did study for this 'one' subject but still fail to get seven. Frustrated! =.=

On a different note, I have something to share with my fellow readers.

If ye help not (your leader-prophet Muhammad saw), (it is no matter): for Allah did indeed help him, when the Unbelievers drove him out: he had no more than one companion; they two were in the cave, and he said to his companion, "Have no fear, for Allah is with us": then Allah sent down His peace upon him, and strengthened him with forces which ye saw not, and humbled to the depths the word of the Unbelievers. But the word of Allah is exalted to the heights: for Allah is Exalted in might, Wise.  (9:40) 

I'm pretty sure that this  most of us know this hijra story as this's part of Islamic studies syllabus since kindergarten. From those verse, we can see on how our prophet and Abu Bakr put their fully believe, faith and confidence on Allah when mushrikeen sought after them. At the end, Allah sent His  help to both of them and they saved. 

All  this while, I do think that believe, faith and confidence are the same thing. But I was completely wrong.
A friend of mine shared an analogy to show the differences between these words.

Say you're at shooting target booth in a fun fair and you saw someone, who was successfully shooting a apple 7 times without even a miss. You would surely impressed of the ability of that person and regard her/him as a good shooter. But are you confidence enough to offer yourself by putting the apple on your head, so that the so called good shooter can test his skill again. (and by using the real pistol) I believe not all of us have courage to do this. Not even me! To make it more fascinating, imagine yourself in medieval time, where you were tied on a wheel and spun around. (imagine a dagger instead of pistol as i don't think there's pistol at that time)

I hope at this point all of you get my message. Try relate this analogy to Allah. We know that He's capable of doing anything He want but at a point we feel it's kind impossible for things to happen. Miracle do happen. and that's Allah  will.

So, do believe, have faith and confidence on Him.
