Faith in the city


The above photo was captured by Ilham [my handsome GoPro LOL]
Some people say the city Kuala Lumpur is muddied with negativities. But I have faith in the city. It has taught me plenty. It is kind and generous. Alhamdulillah.  

In fact, Kuala Lumpur was blessed with yet another mawlid celebration last weekend, at Masjid Al-Bukhary. Shaykh Afeefudin Al-Jailani and Shaykh Najmudin gave tausiyah on the importance of remembering the Prophet salallah alaihi wasalam.

Shaykh Najmuddin said something to this effect:
It doesn't make sense to not want to be close to the Prophet, to know better about him, to remember him and make salawat for him because at the end of the day he will be our savior. Parents are not going to help their children. Husbands and wives are going to go separate ways because everyone would be in dire need on the Day of Resurrection. It will be he salallah alaihi wasalam and not any other Prophets, who will be saving us in the hereafter - at sirat he will be looking out for us; when we are thirsty, he will let us drink from his palms, he will be there acting like our safety net or safety harness and yet we are lackadaisical in acknowledging him. It does not make any sense to not want to honor and be close to the Prophet here and now. 

To be honest, this posting would not have surfaced, if it weren't for my mother who thoughtfully nagged: 'Are you not working on Lisan al-Din? when so many other things nagged at the back of my mind. Office workload is at its peak.

But the good news is that I will be travelling abroad soon and will InshaAllah share something exciting with you. In the meantime, it will be nothing more than sporadic posting.

No matter in which city you live in, just keep the faith. Even though at times the city seems to be moving at supersonic speed and we are left behind gasping, we should still keep the faith. Everything is going to be alright. Everything is going to be alright. Bi-iznillah.

Goodnite all.


p/s Aunty S: Thank you for the loveeeeee.
