Alhamdulillah wa shukrulillah. It's always a joy to proclaim the Lord's bounty with the hope He will send in more cool stuffs. Yet again the Lord proves how true His words: "...The Lord of Truth will grant you from sources you never imagined."
Was utterly thrilled and gobsmacked to have received a good sum of money from unimaginable sources. Subhanallah. Allah Karim. Allah Karim.
I think that's why they say: Keep some room in your heart for the unimaginable.
Then this faqir finally got hold of the latest and tiniest Sony voice recorder. It's kinda silly that I never bothered to record the shuyukh's talks using a voice recorder. All this while, it's like - what I catch is what I catch - or in Arabic, if I heard Shaykh Abdul Aziz correctly, they say: ma adratu adratu. What you have caught is what you have caught.
And the best purchase last week was this uber cool college hoodie. YaHuuuu!
Praise be to Allah for the opportunity to study at Stirling.
The shirt says: Never underestimate the power of a woman
who graduated from Stirling ; )
Tangible things aside, the truly valuable gift is often the intangible. At a majlis on 12th Rabi'ul Awal in KL, Shaykh Abdul Aziz Fredericks said: "It is Allah who brings ulfa between people's hearts." So, if you've got it, you've got it. Affection is a gift from Him the Creator. Enjoy and be grateful while you have it.
Alhamdulillah wa shukrulillah.
