~RAMADHAN : day 23~



ASSALAMUALAIKUM.... SALAM RAMADHAN...





Ramadhan Day 23: Do taubah! Set a "date" with Allah - he is available 24/7! :)


So dear Muslim ladies and gents, when was the last time you had a private, one-one moment with Allah? Set a "date" with The Almighty, for He is available 24/7, all year round!

The most important one-on-one session is to seek repentance (taubah) from Him. We're bound to commit many sins for we are just mere humans, and there's nobody else that can forgive your sins other than Him, for He is Merciful.

"And seek forgiveness of Allah. Indeed, Allah is Forgiving and Merciful." (73:20)

To seek repentance is easy. You don't need to do bungee jumping or sacrifice a fluffy animal. All you need to do is these simple steps:

1. Be completely HONEST and SINCERE
2. Realise your sins and regret doing so
3. VOW and make a promise to God and to yourself that you'll never repeat the same sins. Be strong with this!
4. Continuously do good

Not only Allah will forgive and wipe away your sins, in addition, he will TURN all the sins you've done to deeds! Masyallah!

To end this, I'd like to share this really wonderful Hadith by Bukhari with all of you. Let's continuously do taubah so that we'll be better Muslims, insyallah.

"The master of invocations for forgiveness is that the servant says:

O' my Allah! You are my Lord, there is no 'Allah but You. You created me, and I am your bondservant, and I will stick to my covenant and promise [of faith and sincere obedience] to You, as to my ability. I seek refuge in You from the evil of what I have done, I acknowledge, to You, your bounties upon me, and I acknowledge, to You, my sin. Thus forgive me, for none forgives sins except You.

Whoever says this as he enters upon evening, then, dies that night, he would enter Paradise; and if one says this as he enters upon morning, then, dies that day, he would enter Paradise."
 
 
 
wahh... dah 23Ramadahan.... nextweek dah raya...

~RAMADHAN : Day 22~



Assalamualaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh...






Ramadhan Day 22: Don't forget to pay you zakat! Upon giving your money (or bag of rice), one should make sure that you're doing it for Allah and with most humbleness, not for show-off purposes.

Zakah (or zakat) is not purely about giving money or basic necessities (rice, dates) to the poor and needy, but it's also for purification purposes! It purifies the hearts from greedy and selfishness.

Zakah Eid-Fitri is obligatory and it needs to be paid before the end of Ramadhan. The purpose of the collection of Zakah Eid-Fitri before Eid is to help the needy and the poor for their Eid preparation. Helping one another; ain't that beautiful? 

"My mercy encompasses all things, but I will specify it for the righteous who give Zakat" (7:156)

So to you righteous Muslims, I urge you to pay zakah before the end of Ramadhan. For Malaysians, you may find many many Zakah "counters" in mosques, shopping malls and even in bazaars!

Upon giving your money, one should make sure that you're doing it for Allah and with most humbleness, not for show-off purposes. Think about the happy needy people you're gonna help, and most importantly, think about the awesome rewards you're gonna get from Allah from your good deed! 

For further information on zakah Eid-Fitri, please refer to respectable scholars, or you can just simply Google it. Most Islamic websites on the net are trustworthy, insyallah. 




kalau kat perak Zakat untuk seorang, Rm 7.00
Kat tempat korang berapa???

~RAMADHAN : Day 21~







Ramadhan Day 21: So while the others are sleeping, make a point to wake up and do ibadah to Allah. Give your bed a chance to rest!

In today's society, we are so caught up with work and other worldly activities during the day, so it's normal for us humans to get a good sleep during night time.

BUT it's Ramadhan and it is ending as you blink, so no matter how tired or sleepy you are - WAKE UP and do ibadah during night time! Manage your time properly and insyallah you have no problem staying awake at night 

And as said by Prophet Muhammad s.a.w:
"Our Lord (glorified and exalted be He) descends each night to the earth's sky when there remains the final third of the night, and He says: Who is saying a prayer to Me that I may answer it? Who is asking something of Me that I may give it him? Who is asking forgiveness of Me that I may forgive him?" (Bukhari, Muslim, Malik, Ar-Tarmidhee, Abu Dawud)

From the hadith above, we should know that Allah comes down on every last third of every night (about 2~4am) and He asks us for us to demand wishes from Allah!
So imagine this; if you were asleep in your comfy bed, you'd miss the chance of asking God to grant your wishes. Awwwwesome! 

So while the others are sleeping, make a point to wake up and do ibadah to Allah.  Give your bed a chance to rest!



~ H a t i ~


Hati saya jauh, sangat jauh. Tapi saya tak perlu risau sebab DIA akan jaga Hati saya sebaik mungkin. Saya tawakal dan redha. Saya hanya mampu berdoa, berharap dan akan berusaha untuk menjaga Hati saya sebaik mungkin. Walaupun Hati saya sangat sensitif, tapi saya akan berusaha untuk buat Hati saya bahagia.

Yang penting saya tak kan cepat mengalah dengan dugaan yang DIA bagi. Allah uji sebab Allah sayang kan. So kepada Hati, sila lah bersabar dengan ujian. Walaupun jauh tapi saya akan tetap jaga Hati... Awak kan Hati saya. Kalau Hati tak happy macam mana saya nak happy kan... Dont worry... ill keep skodeng u.. huahuahua..

adios

~RAMADHAN : Day 20~



salam peeps...

wow!! wow!! wow!!!
tak sangka sangat sepat masa berlalu.. malam ni dah masuk fasa ketiga ramadhan.. iaitu fasa dimana pembebasan dari api neraka... freedom!

Dalam 10 malam terakhir juga, kita digalakkan untuk stay up.. macam kita selalu buat masa struggle time final exam dulu... camtu la juga kita applykan  utuk 10 malam terakhir ni.

Dah masuk speed zone.. Berusaha mecari malam Al-qadar, stay up means memperbanyakkan solat malam, tahajjud, qiamulail, iktikaf kat masjid. Kalau kita tak boleh buat semua, kita buat lah yang terbaik dan termampu.

Yang penting kita bersungguh-sungguh untuk mendapatkan redha dari Yang Maha Esa..


Okelah sedikit tazkirah ringkas dari ustazah Syazwani. Ehem..hehehe

okela.. actually ittew nak share about day 20 ni... meh meh kite bace same- same



Ramadhan Day 20: Maximize the last 10 days- Go for it! Remember to encourage your family members, friends and peers to do more good deeds! :)

There are 10 Ramadhan days left! If you haven't ditched that game you've been wasting on for the past 20 days; time for you to let it go and focus on the last 10 days! Woot!

So it's the last 10 days, what should we Muslims do?

Pray HARDER!
Make LONGER dua's!
Recite the Quran MORE and MORE!
Donate to the EXTREME!
Go to the mosque MORE!
Socialize LESS!

And most importantly;
Get your SINS completely WIPED OUT! Hi-yah!

In the last 10 days of Ramadhan, Muslims should seek the "Night of Power", or also known as "Lailatur Qadar" (we will go more in-depth about this later insyallah)

So stop wasting your precious, precious time and grab the opportunity! Wake your family members and friends, and invite them to increase their deen




jom jom jom!!!

~ Love Letter ;1~



Dear bakal imamku,

Please take note about this;




SyAz just hope yang terbaik andai memang ini adalah jalan yang terbaik untuk kita....


~ RAMADHAN : DAY 19~





Happy Sunday guys…

Acane korang punya hari? Mestilah berehat sepanjang hari kat rumah kan.. Same lah ittew…
Tapi pagi tadi tolong mak cantas pokok bunga, tanam bunga baru.. Acecece semangat nak raya kan..
Oke Waney, STOP bubbling…


Now, I wanna share with u what to do on day 19,





Ramadhan Day 19: 
To love our beloved Prophet Muhammad (saw) is to know him and his characteristics, to read and know about the things he has done for Islam and us, the ummah...

And most importantly, is to implement his teachings and guidance (sunnah) in our daily lives.

:) May we see and meet him in Jannah, Ameen!




"It is He Who sends down manifest Ayat (signs, revelations) to His Slave Muhammad SAW that He may bring you out from darkness into light. And verily, Allah is to you full of kindness, Most Merciful" (57:9)

Honestly speaking, I get very, very emotional when it comes to our beloved Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). I was a jahil to realize the things he has done for his ummat (people), but it hit me when I started studying about him, Subhanallah! Since then I grew to love him more and more each minute.

And we Muslims should too! In fact, we should love him MORE than we love our parents, and even our halal partners.

To love Prophet Muhammad s.a.w, we should learn about him. And to only love is not enough, we should also practice the guidance and examples he has shown us

Studying about him would increase our deen, inshaAllah. Let's all be righteous Muslims and follow his guidance, and we will meet this great man in Paradise

~ RAMADHAN : DAY 14~





So... what we will learn on day 14??
Here these...



Ramadhan Day 14 - Share and Spread Knowledge!

Do you have any favourite surahs from the Quran? Or favourite hadith? Share the gems here with us! :)
RAMADHAN DAY 14~

Now that you've got your knowledge (refer to Day 13), whatchu gotta do? SHARE and SPREAD it around! Tell your family, your peers and the non-Muslims the wonderful beauties of Islam!

Muslims must realise that they should not only require knowledge, but they must spread the good dakwah around!
"Invite to the Way of your Lord (Islam) with wisdom and fair preaching, and argue with them in a way that is better. Truly, your Lord knows best who has gone astray from His Path, and He is the Best Aware of those who are guided." (16:125)

"Let there arise out of you a group of people inviting to all that is good, enjoining al-ma`roof [i.e. Islamic Monotheism and all that Islam orders one to do] and forbidding al-Munkar [polytheism and disbelief and all that Islam has forbidden]. And it is they who are successful." (3:104)

"Amar ma'ruf nahi mungkar" is simply to tell others to do good and to stop others from doing bad.

There are many ways for modern Muslims to share and spread dakwah; why not utilize your smart phones, Facebook and the interwebz? Say you found a good video online; simply copy and paste the link on your Facebook status! Perhaps 1 out of 20 friends would actually click and watch it! Even if it's just one person, you have already reached a mission, which is to give dakwah

However, keep in mind that you need manners and the correct methods of doing dakwah. During my research, I found an interesting write-up on 12 ways to dakwah:
http://www.themodernreligion.com/dawah/dawah-12tips.html
Insyallah it will guide us to be a good dakwah-doer!

And remember, before giving dakwah make sure you acquire the right knowledge!

I wish you dakwah-doers ALL THE BEST! Let's share and spread Dakwah to the society, and insyallah it will remind us to be better Muslims too 



 footnote: share! share! share!... jangan kedekut ilmu taw...

~ RAMADHAN : DAY 15~







RAMADHAN DAY 15!

Ramadhan, WOOT! Ramadhan isn't the time for you to sleep and laze around like Patrick the starfish, but a fasting Muslim should be happy, active and positive!

Not having to eat and drink for a day, and even doing ibadaah and night prayers might be tiring, but it's not a reason for you to have that zombie look! Give people greetings and salaam, put that OSM smile your face and give fist bumps! Show to the society and the non-muslims that we fasting Muslims are too, with energy!

Sure, as mere humans, we deal with everyday problems. From heart wrecking worldly problems to mood swings; it's the matter of how we deal with them. If you are troubled and or in despair, think of Allah. Turn to him, tell him all your problems and your needs, and insyallah He will help you, for He is Almighty.

Back to being active and positiveness in Ramadhan; remember the Bad'r war during Prophet Muhammad s.a.w's time? He and his warriors fought victoriously during Ramadhan. It proves that even when one is fasting, you can go through day even if you're in a challenging situation.

So for the next remaining days of Ramadhan, stay happy, active and positive.

"Yes! Whoever submits himself entirely to Allah and he is the doer of good (to others) he has his reward from his Lord, and there is no fear for him nor shall he grieve.” (2:112)


~ RAMADHAN : DAY 16~









"Share gifts, spread love" (Abu Ya'la)

Giving gifts is special in Islam, and it doesn't only apply to certain occasions. Muslims are encouraged to give gifts to each other as that strengthens bond; all year round!

Giving gifts might be a simple thing, but there are proper etiquettes to it.
“Whoever does you a favour, respond in kind, and if you cannot find the means of doing so, then keep praying for him until you think that you have responded in kind.” (Abu Daawood) From this hadith sahih, we Muslims should know that:

- Respond kindly to the gift-giver, just as he treated you
- If you're unable to treat him in return, make dua' and pray for him

The best dua' that was thought is to say "Jazakullahu Khair" which means "May Allah reward you with good" to gift-givers.

There are many selection of gifts you can give to your family, peers, neighbours and your halal partner, but giving Islamic gifts (hijab for the ladies, book of reminders, modest clothing, etc) is the best as you're also doing your job as a righteous Muslim, which is to encourage Islam to other people!

And the most important thing is that, give gifts with upmost sincere niat!



footnote: setiap perbuatan dimulai dengan niat ;)
