Sweet... Aren't they?


"A Muslim man can acquire no benefit after Islam greater than a Muslim wife who makes him happy when he looks at her, obeys him when he commands her, and protects him when he is away from her in herself and in his property."

[Reported by An Nasa'i]

It has been narrated by Zaid Ibn Arqam that the Prophet sallallahu alaihi wasallam stated, "Oh Zaid! Be wedded, for your purity will be further increased."

[Dailami: Imam Abu Hanifa]

Getting A Message Across


Dear Whom-This-May-Concern,

I know you've been a faithful reader here ever since we knew each other though you are not a follower.

One thing I really need you to understand is that things had changed for these past few years. I know you notice them. Please stop all the stalkings. And I beg you to stop all the pretenses too because I'm really not buying them. I had enough of 'saying one thing but means another'. Use all those figures of speech you may but things will never be the same.

You and I both know we are not having so many pep talks like we used to. We have now grown up to be someone so different from who we were.

We are friends. I never despise you. Never. Pray you'll always have a good life, a blessed and a blissful one. InshaALlah. Wishing you well in every good thing you do.

And this note, it never meant any harm. It's never easy for me to be a 'goody two-shoes' kinda person to even my besties. So here I am noting this down for you. Please understand.

May you stay safe and well.

Yours faithfully,
The Less Courageous

Three words; If you must--

If you must; let go
Nothin’ in this life stays

Whether you like it or not
People leave (or die)
Memories fade

While the clock is still tickin’
Tell ‘em you love ‘em
Why worry when you have all to have and all to give?

It goes for circle;
What you give, you get back
What goes around comes back around

Remember why you are here
And how you are here
And where you are goin’--after--here.

If you must;
let go--

Still feels like the day when you looked straight into her eyes
and said:
“Thou art beautiful
Make me a man
Thou art perfect
Thou complete me”

was she

No more,

Dear Romeo

Romeo O Romeo,
It’s the way you left her
It’s the way you hesitated

It’s when you chose; not her!

Now that everything had changed

No she’s not gonna come back

No it’s not gonna work

No way it will


No way

She was your Juliet--

Of wanting to be happy...


It's been a while since I scribble my thoughts here. Even now I wish to write pages and pages of things that had happened in the past few months [the last entry I posted was in January] but don't think I'm able to do so just yet. [actually, I don't feel like doing it]

Well, had some fun doing this yesterday and I think I really have passion in it (photography). Hope to own one good DSLR in the future inshaALlah. ;)

[Special thanks to Azimah, Aisha, Azza, Aishah, Yana, and Nusantara Photography (Br. Ashraf, our instructor's studio) for this!]

Looking into the future, one thing for sure, life going to be so different soon. I'll be graduating in April then going to start work, pay the debt [pitipitipu!], and have some plan to travel the world too, inshaALlah. A lot of things to do while being young and able. They say; "Seize the day!"

Hmmm... Talking about life, anticipating that I'll be weeping a lot this week. Huhu. Went through hard times alone these days [proving to the world that I'm strong and independent but yet I think I fail] and now things getting harder and harder. Well, that's how we mature...

In Quran, there are many duas including this one that we can say during those hard times;
"Our Lord, grant us from Yourself mercy and prepare for us from our affair right guidance."
[Al Kahfi; QS 3:10]
Amiin, thumma amiin. Hoping that through these ups and downs, He will always be close to my heart no matter what.

Alhamdulillah, had the chance to visit Morocco in mid January for the 5th International Youth Gathering (IYG) organized by Union of NGOs in Islamic World (UNIW) which has its base in Istanbul, Turkey.

Visited some very beautiful places [especially the beaches!] including Casablanca, Rabat, Marrakech, Tangier and Fes. I miss Morocco and all the warm and lovely people; Renata, Ouissal, Khaoula, Wafa, Sevde, Sumeyye, Iman, Hetice, Seyme. Hope they are doing good. Hope we can meet again in Turkey this coming July for the 6th IYG.

And for my family here in Malaysia; including PPIWP, MRC 0809, JBDS, 5th IYG, may ALlah be with us and bless our lives with His Pleasure and Love. And may our ending be 'husnul khatimah' inshaALlah. Having you guys around get me stronger. And this one's for you, with love. :)
