Befriend | What/who we do have


Alhamdulillah wa shukrulillah for all the wonderful people in our lives. We must thank Allah for guiding the hearts of selected people to be kind and friendly towards us.

Look at what I've gotten. It means a lot when a maestro you look up to, a role model, offer you such encouraging words.     

Hassan Muthalib dedicates this second book of his
for his parents who initiated the journey, his Sufi Master who made him understand the objectives of the journey, for his loved ones who were patient with his journey; and for his mentor, colleagues, friends, and students who made his journey worthwhile. 

Indeed, it's true for me too, my mentors and friends have made my journey worthwhile. It's what we do have that make us happy. Happiness, as they say, doesn't come as a result of getting something we don't have, it's about appreciating what and who we do have.     

March 2017 has been a very exciting and fulfilling month. Alhamdulillah. We have come to the last day of March. Believe it or not, it's the 90th day of the year, already.

May the winds of sakinah (tranquility) blow gently with the arrival of April.

May Allah bless us in this sacred month of Rejab. May He overlook our shortcomings and grant us the strength to keep trying. May He open the floodgates of blessings. May He give us the capacity to see and to have a strong certainty that He is in fact, the most loving and caring Friend we should befriend and keep company throughout our journey. He is the One whom we should have on top of our hearts.
