The Prophet Muhammad (s) said, “None of you truly believes until he wishes for his brother what he wishes for himself.”
[Bukhari and Muslim]

Assalamu'alaikum w.b.t.h,

Peace y'all, i wish you best in health, wealth and piety, to stay close and constant remembrance of Allah SWT. Blog had been on hiatus for quite awhile due to excessive traveling and moving in and out. Finally had some time to update on myself, for keepsake of this ever continuing life of mine and also as a periodic muhasabah and self check on ever changing status quo.

So I had a pleasant time with family for a month, holiday seems to come right on time, need a break from all the stresses and what not, and best of all to feel loved again. Result was above expectation, Alhamdulillah for that, for all the goodness can only can come from Him, hopefully it could be maintained for the rest of semesters, and better still, improvement.

Recently Ive been thinking alot of my blog mate who is far away out there and out of reach, TheHumbleWayfarer, how are you? AbdusSalam, how are you? Kak Fid, How are you? Bintu Rafee, How are you? Butet, how are you? Liyana, how are you ? NixNadizy, how are you? RockingHijab, how are you? Hamamu, how are you? PemburuSyurga, how are you?

This semester I've moved in with 4 other hommies Azmir, Udin, Arep and Haras. Its been a blast, and best of all, jamaah prayer is just a door-knock away. First few days had been a blast, my room window was directed to the place of sunrise, and Alhamdulillah, I had been greeted with sun rays every morning, it was so beautiful and really felt different, and as far as I can recall, this is the first time I enjoy sunrise every morning, not in Bangsar, and also not in Petaling Jaya. Owh so beautiful.

This semester will be coming in heavy, 2 core subjects and 2 optional subjects. Still trying to balance out commitment and studies, after a month away from studies and da'wah tarbiyah jama'ie due to excessive traveling. O Allah help me in my affairs in finding nearness to You and to persevere in fulfilling my duty as Your subservient servant. May this Ramadhan increase our focus, iman and taqwa in attending our affair, duniawi and ukhrawi. Amin.

Most things still remain the same as it was, but some are not. But I am optimistic about life. Things will be better, InshaAllah. For every hardship there are rewards, for every rewards, there are blessings. Nothing more valuable than blessings. Wealth, happiness, pain, suffering, sweat, tears and blood are just meaningless without blessings. Oh Allah, bless me in every step of my life, in every rising and downfall, bless every near kin to me, bless every single friends I've been with, and those who are far from you, bless them with repentance and nearness of You.


Recently also, I've been feeling that life is short, It felt stronger day by day, and I felt that I've been complaining alot about life, instead pursuing for wisdom behind every event in life. All dust specks and atoms which forms liquid solids and plasma in this world, had been equated and set in place by the Wise one, and none of it was set without reason and as mere play, and if every single wheat, grass and leaves at the side of the road was set out for a purpose, I am sure every event in life will have its wisdom, and the wise one always learn.

Its time for a change.
From protest to engagement.
