Takhalli | Discard


I am pleased to be able to wish you good morning on this lovely Friday. Alhamdulillah for being alive and healthy, for feeling calm and contented.

Feeling really good this morning after deleting some 15,000 emails under the "Social" and "Promotions" Tab! I'm not sure what to do with the 20,000 emails under the "Primary" Tab, yet, but that's ok for now. Discarding 15,000 emails just now made me feel good. LOL. It's like the feeling we usually have after doing the laundry and spring-cleaning the house.

It reminds me of the term takhalli, which I learned/heard from a couple of ustaz. I'm sure you are familiar with the term too. It comes in three actually: takhalli - tahalli - tajalli.

If you're not familiar, then please go read up or ask the experts on the meanings of these tasawwuf jargons.

Just remember takhalli every time you feel good about cleaning up your space, be it physical or virtual. Takhalli is about discarding the bad, the unnecessary and then empty the trash bin. It's about withdrawing and/or refraining from the negatives. It's not as easy as it sounds. It's a life-long process. 

On this blessed Friday, let's pray Allah would help us cleanse ourselves regularly, daily and not keep so much trash for too long. That He would forgive us completely. Amin Ya Rabb.  

Wish y'all a wonderful weekend.

Am excited about going to Penang, again : )
Again, next week and the week after and the week after....InShaAllah.
Alhamdulillah Allah Kareem.
