Got to stop fainting

Assalamu'alaikum peeps. How are you guys, hope you guys are fine and well. As Ramadhan passed us day by day, week by week, i hope that everyone is undergoing the training and embrace the transition to become a better person, to examplify The Beloved Prophet, and to be close to Almighty creator through worship, remembrance and repentance on our past deeds.

Ramadhan had been rather challenging for me. When i was small, i love to run and play sports. During primary, I used to represent school for sprinting, thou i did not go far as the guys from Sekolah Sukan Bukit Jalil was three times faster and fitter. Since our school are from the same district, our school always left behind when we meet Sekolah Sukan Bukit Jalil.

Then we moved to PJ, i went into SMK Sultan Abdul Samad, i had been on hiatus on all of the sports except, playing football for PE lesson. Back when i was in high school, i was more nerdy, Solar Car competition we went to state district, i was fully engrossed with music. For almost 4 years physically unfit, I started doing sports again. During form 5, there were not enough runner in our Sport House for Lelaki Kelas 1, i was in the Green House by the way, I had to run for the house in 200 m Lelaki 1 against a few of the very tall and skinny Form 6. Surprisingly, I got a gold for it, and i was forced to enrol for Long Jump, nailed silver for it. That is pretty awkward situation for me.

When i graduated high school, i was back to being physically dormant and gain a few pounds when i entered Curtin University, physical condition wass really bad. I only play futsal about 2 weeks once, and my diet and sleep all jumbled and unorganized. After 4 and a half year being dormant i decided to be physically fit again. I joined a football team called Panther FC, we had a good captain and also manager. On our first game we did du'a and the captain prayed to at least have a winning of 2-0 and also prep end up with takbir. I love the idea that this team play not just for winning, but there is something else to it. I was assigned to take care of Right Back, and I must say i did tried my best keeping the ball of the box, and played for almost half time and benched nearing to half time.

As I was sitting next to Arep, I cant breath and i felt all dizzy. My eyes was blurry and I really cant breath and my vision was partly white. I said to Arep, "Dude, aku rasa nak pengsan la", Arep said, "Eh jangan duduk, jalan bro, jalan" So i took a stroll down the side of the field, and fell after walking my 5th meter. I cant breath and I'm halfway through passing out, Zubir saw me, and I realized, I really need to rehydrate before i pass out. It was a pitty that its 45 minutes left till Iftar. Before this I used to do sunnat fasting on Monday and Thursday, and used to do sport during fasting, it was okay.

So I had post mortem on myself. I realized I did not had enough energy for the game due to imroper sahur. I only took about half a glass of water and went back to bed. One other possible reason is because I recently did blood donation about a week before fasting, It could also be another reason to the fainting. Someone proposed that I should drop playing all in all and concentrate on fasting. But I reckon that shouldn't be the case. Its not the problem of playing, but being physically unfit is the issue. and I am committed to have a change in my lifestyle and to also be productive in da'wah and studies which is currently partly unorganized.

May this Ramadhan teach me the meaning of being an active muslim, care for the ni'mah of health and physical well being, and to be organized in every of my dealings with friends and family. and if theres a call for Jihad, I'll be wanting for myself to be on the most front and not fainting half way through. Oh Allah, to You only we seek help, and to You only we return. ... On the other note, I missed Rasulullah SAW so badly. The day I fainted, I wish he was there to comfort me, and to tell me it was okay, and that it'l be better the next time around. But I'm grateful ibu is till around to comfort me. This one for you Ya Habibi

Akh. How are you my dear ? Again and again, I want to say sorry.

Thanks for the beautiful sharing =)

Akh, I want you to know that you are among those people in my life who can make me cry and make me realize how much improvements I need in terms of how do I practice this Deen.

akh, I don't simply say this, but I mean it in the nicest possible way.

I cannot imagine myself without you akh. You are such a good brother who reminded me with so many things in life. Indirectly or directly is not the issue. Anyway you did and I thank you for that.

To be honest, sometimes I feel like I'm lost.Hard to say, but I have to admit I am.That's why if you notice I just disappear from the blogosphere.

That's why I need people like you akh, to remind me and I thank Allah for giving me the blessings of 'knowing' you my dear. May Allah bless you and your family.

Ana Uhibbuk Fillah !

mashaAllah. now dah ok?
sekarang pun salaam dh rasa gemok :(
tak dapat bersukan sebab busy sangat.

tips kalau puasa, nak bermain jugak, you got to get sahur. then, a good rest before the game start to gather more oxygen in your blood.

during the game, be cautious on how you breath. good breathing can help you fit.

hope you're fine my brah. take care :)
