Be happy where you are


It's a timely reminder. No, it's a timeless evergreen reminder as we mortals tend to be too analytical and judgmental of Allah's decree. Every little experience no matter how mundane is decreed. We are sometimes too egoistic to pause, be quiet and be still to observe the lesson, instead, we get restless reacting and questioning as to why it is what it is.

It is what it is cos God knows better what we need. It is what it is cos it's a gift. We are where we are meant to be.

"Believe all that happens to you is for good. Even when Allah allows bad things to happen, there's something good behind it. " - Dr. Bilal Phillips

"The perfection of every moment may not be apparent to you, yet that will make the moment no less perfect. It will be no less than a gift. " - Neale Donald Walsch

As mortals, we have the capacity to dream. Keep dreaming as it's a prelude to what gets manifested eventually.

Happy Thursday


Oh well, I am a Penangite through and through and due to family circumstances I couldn't venture far for weekend getaway lately other than trying out several beach hotels in Batu Feringghi Penang - but Hard Rock Hotel Penang is, of course, special because how many HRC hotels are there in the world? Not too many.

When I was in my 20s, I collected HRC Tees from around the world but just like many things in life we outgrow them.

Here's another short clip, more for the benefit of my clan, as something to remember by.

Let's not forget this season is a gifting season and gifting is sunnah.

Enjoy your day, folks. Today is the youngest we'll ever be again.

Let's stay occupied with activities that carry weight for the ultimate Scales.

"Your greatness is not what you have,
it's what you give."

Yes, especially to people you care about.
Give your time, attention, and most of all love : )

And space, when they need to be alone, LOL. too : D

Wednesday | Sow good seeds


Happy Wednesday folks.
It's gardening day for me, nothing major, just wanna remove all the fallen leaves and tidy up a bit. We have to do the same in life, get rid of the mess to make way for the new.

Oh, of course, we gotta sow good seeds if we want to reap fruity awesome stuff, this I remind myself first and foremost.

Don't forget to proclaim the bounties of your Lord.
Alhamdulillah for today and for everything.

Fruitful | Roll clean


Just a quick one as I am still holidaying in beautiful Penang.

Alhamdulillah for good times. May Allah grant many more fruitful and happy days to me and you. Ameen.

Am glad to hear that some of our readers are enjoying the smallish postings on my fun-filled activities. Sharing is caring. This we all agree eh?

Awesome looking fruits there.
 @Batu Feringghi Beach, Penang, Malaysia

This is how we roll.
We roll clean, ok.
We got wit. We don't do weed!
I'd like to say something in the Malay language.
Siapa makan cili dia rasa pedas.
It basically means: you know who you are.
Don't mess with me cos I PRAY rocking hard

Soon it will be time to resume my Quran recital marathon In Sha Allah. We all ought to read the Quran regularly so that our hearts will not be hard as a rock.

Know your worth


Alhamdulillah it's always a pleasure to be away on holiday on a Monday LOL.

Just a simple reminder to myself and the young ones - to stay sober. Sober as in free from negative substances; sensible, serious-minded, dignified, thoughtful, level-headed, pragmatic, rational and logical.   

To stay cool even if self-righteous/holier-than-thou people try to thrash you and ruin your image cos you know what you are worth and someday, the truth will prevail. They should not speak/brag too soon, or be too arrogant of their so-called good family background/kinship; they should not be too quick to judge and throw stones at others when they can't even manage those under their responsibilities.

Soften thy heart


A hardened heart is no good. Always keep it soft by remembering Allah, no matter where we are. Build up our strength so that no matter what the environment, we don't waver on matters of principles, of what is right and what is wrong. May Allah continue to grant us hidayah and tawfik. Ameen.

Have a fabulous Sunday folks. I am spending some quality time with the clan. Wish y'all a wonderful time with your loved ones too.

Make full use of free time, 
before busy-ness overcomes us.

Always keep your vacation clean.
Don't do drugs and the likes yeah!
Seek solace and soften your heart with love and prayers always 😉

I noticed there's a sudden spike in interest towards my old postings re Martin Lings' book on the Prophet's Biography. Yes, I will continue writing proses of the book in 2018. Bi iznillah. In Sha Allah.

Love - Peace - Joy


Hola from Georgetown, Malaysia - a Unesco World Heritage Site.

As we bask in peaceful and joyful gatherings, let's not forget our friends who are undergoing undesirable circumstances. And let us be more grateful for times of ease so that the Generous Lord will grant us a whole lot more happy times.

We have but only one world to share, may we - Muslims, Christians, Jews, Buddhist, and Hindus live harmoniously, uplifting one another for a more prosperous Earth instead of hurting and inconveniencing one another. 

He who inflicts harm on others, verily inflicts harm on himself, if he but knew.
