|KL - Friday, 22 Nov 2013|
Good morning from Kuala Lumpur especially to my friends whom Allah have destined to wake up in another country, on another continent. I am specifically thinking of a friend in South Africa who is sweet and thoughtful. It puts a smile on my face to have received the first Jumaah Mubarrak greeting from as far away as Cape Town :)
It's Allah who makes our hearts warm towards one another. Thank you! And Alhamdulillah for all the beautiful people in our lives. And surely we seek refuge in Allah from people who not only have evil intentions towards us but are continually scheming to harm us for whatever reasons. Na'uzubillah min zalik.
We should be grateful that we can wake up in a city which is free of haze, unaffected by any kinds of natural disasters. Waking up to a decent breakfast. In my case it is toast, eggs and homemade spread prepared by my dearest mom, Alhamdulillah.
Alhamdulillah we must mention His bounties. Alhamdulillah we are able to be thankful for His bounties, no matter how small. Well, small or big is subjective in relation to our nafs. Everything good is from Him.
Let's ponder on this verse from Surah An Najm 53:43:
"And that it is He who makes [one] laugh and cry."
So come to think of it, it does not matter, either way, laugh or cry because it is all from Him. Let's consider the Giver, the Doer, surely He loves us anyway, surely He loves us regardless and He has chosen us to be ummah of His beloved Prophet salallahalaihi wasalam.
Wish you a fruitful and blissful Friday :)
