Happy Today


Keep counting our blessings.
Keep hoping for the best.
Keep feeling good so we would attract more good stuff.

Keep reciting Quran on a daily basis.
Keep making zikir and salawat.
Keep the faith strong.
Keep moving forward positively until the day we return to the Creator, pleased and pleasing to Him.

Alhamdulillah wa shukrulillah for today.
May He grant us more.
Ameen Ya Kareem Ya Wahab Ya Rahim.

Alhamdulillah those brothers in faith, a little boy and a cat, let me join them while waiting for my mother buy some fresh seafood : D

Festival of Lights | Deepavali | Diwali


I would like to wish our Hindu friends and everyone who observe the Deepavali celebration, a very happy and joyous day! As we spend the holidays with our loved ones, let's not forget those who are less fortunate who have been groping for a beacon of light so they could once again live a decent life.

I am grateful to have arrived in my beautiful hometown - Penang. Grateful for the safe and ever so pleasant drive north-bound. Alhamdulillah.

Keep calm and live life positively "off the wall".

I'm heading to a beach resort soon to treat my dearest mother, cos my heaven is under her feet : D
Identify your pass to the heaven and earn it!
Wama tawfiqi illa billah.

Moments that matter


Says Rose Kennedy

May we become more mindful of each present moment and seize it optimally in the way that is pleasing to the Lord.

Our Lord is indeed generous. He rewards us for merely gazing at the sea.

May we contemplate and recognize Him on the horizon and within ourselves.

Aslahallahu umural Muslimin


This heart-wrenching photo has to be here to remind us of how fortunate we were as children.
That we have to be more grateful.
That we have to do more and pray harder for our less fortunate children.
That we have to work harder in whatever capacity we are in so that no child will have to cry begging for safety, food, shelter, and love.

Do not doubt the power of a sincere du'a.

O Allah, we implore You to improve the lives of these children.
You are Most-Kind, be kind to them as You have been with us.
Provide for them as You have generously provided us with sustenance and comfort.
Ameen Ya Mujibuddua, Ya Rahman, Ya Rahim, Ya Aziz, Ya Zal Jalali wal ikram, Ya Razak, Ya Alimun Hakim.

Write and say so


I like M.T.Cicero, that celebrated Roman lawyer/writer/orator/statesman, cos he is real. Only someone who is real would say what he said. That "even if you have nothing to write, write and say so." LOL.

Yes, to be frank, I have nothing to write about yesterday and today's posting slot except to tell it as it is. That I have spent my weekend indoor being productive doing spring cleaning, cooking, reading the Quran, reading some positive stuff on Twitter and tweeting, and eating of course. Oh before I began all those activities, I went to KLCC mall for a while on Saturday to check out Tiffany's latest jewellery collection. LOL. Yes, I did! And bought some yummy salads from Isetan Food Store and a slice of cake from Bisou. Hah...hah... I am revealing my weekend "KLCC pit-stop ritual" to the public.

And this morning I walked to a stall to get my Nasi Lemak fix. LOL. Nasi Lemak is Malaysia's most popular breakfast consisting of rice flavoured with coconut milk, hard boiled egg, fried anchovies and squids sambal (hot sauce) and cucumber.

Oh, what did I cook for dinner? Chicken kurma cos it's easy peasy.

M.T.Cicero was a lawyer. I am courting a lawyer, a good looking one! Heh so? Yes, by reading the Quran regularly, a drop-dead handsome brilliant guy will be my loyal companion in the grave bi-iznillah.
I thank Allah for this tawfik-boost I have been experiencing. Alhamdulillah indeed. I pray Allah would grant you a good dose of tawfik too. Oh yes, you are included in my dua per verse 41 of Surah Ibrahim. "Rabbanaqfirli waliwalidaiya wa lil mukmini nayauma yaqumul hisab" - that Allah would forgive all believers on the Day of Reckoning.

It's a big day no doubt. Perhaps every year as we eagerly wait for our birthday like it's a sure thing and embrace it with merriment, we should also reflect on the inevitable Day of Reckoning cos it's a big deal - bigger than our birthdays. With each birthday we get closer to the ultimate big day - the Day of Reckoning.

So do you reckon you would do well on that big day? I ask myself.

Hope you have had a productive and pleasant weekend too. Let's embrace Monday and week no. 42.

Oh, dear Lord, we are getting closer to week 56. Time flies.

Time is of the essence.

Good night from KL.

Love is a piece of cake


Hope your Saturday was sweet and fattening.

But on a serious note
don't forget to make plenty of zikir
so that we have got something
with a good weight on the Scales.

14:40 & 14:41


Assalamualaikum folks

On this blessed day, I wish to remind myself of these two important verses from Surah Ibrahim which I came across at Subuh today. Alhamdulillah, I am grateful for this new discovery and thought I should share so that Allah will grant more useful knowledge.

I am not very pious, I didn't have proper Islamic teachings when I was growing up, did not graduate from Islamic colleges like some of our learned readers, hence I get easily excited whenever I discover something new in the Quran.

I may be wrong, but I think most people memorize and recite frequently the dua from verse 40 of Surah Ibrahim - "My Lord, make me steadfast in Salah, and my offspring as well. And my Lord, grant my prayer."

But not the dua from verse 41. So let's pay attention to both verses 40 & 41 of Surah Ibrahim.

I didn't know until this morning that the verse following the popular dua about being steadfast in performing salah,  is an equally significant dua.
"Our Lord, forgive me and my parents and ALL BELIEVERS on the day when reckoning shall take place." - Quran 14:41

Subhanallah, I think one who recites this must be very generous and thoughtful.

Let's be among those who are generous and thoughtful.

On the Day of Reckoning (Yaumul Mahsyar) we might be panicky thus are only concerned about our own fate, but here while we are still in this realm, we could recite this dua for ourselves, our parents and everyone - all believers.

I am thankful to have found this verse.
May Allah increase our knowledge and understanding.

Rabbi zidni ilma war zuqni fahma.

Wish y'all a blissful Friday.
