What she chooses to show

“Don’t be so quick to judge, you only see what she chooses to show.”

It is better to give

A young man, a student in one of the universities, was one day taking a walk with his Professor. The professor was commonly called the ‘student’s friend’, from his kindness to those who waited on his instructions.

As they went along, they saw lying in the path a pair of old shoes. They belonged to a poor man who was employed in a field close by, and who had nearly finished his day’s work. The student turned to the professor, saying: “Lets play a trick on this man.” “We will hide his shoes and hide behind those bushes there and see what he does when he cannot find them.”

“My young friend,” answered the professor, “we should never amuse ourselves at the expense of the poor. But you are rich, and may give yourself a much greater pleasure by means of this poor man. Put a coin in each shoe, and then we will hide ourselves and watch how this affects him.”

The student did so & they both hid nearby. The poor man soon finished work & came out of the field to where he had left his coat & shoes.

While putting on his coat he slipped his foot into one of his shoes, but feeling something hard, he stooped down to feel what it was, and found the coin. Astonished and full of wonder he gazed upon the coin, turned it around, and looked at it again and again.

He then looked around him on all sides, but no person was to be seen. He now put the money into his pocket, and proceeded to put on the other shoe; but his surprise was doubled on finding the other coin.

His feelings overcame him; he fell upon his knees, looked up to the heavens and uttered aloud a fervent thanksgiving in which he spoke of his wife who was sick and helpless, and his children without bread, whom this timely bounty, from some unknown hand,would save from perishing.

The student stood there deeply affected, and his eyes filled with tears. “Now,” said the professor, are you not much better pleased than if you had played your intended trick?”

The youth replied, “You have taught me a lesson which I will never forget. I feel now the truth of these words, which I never understood before: “It’s more blessed to give than to receive.”

Abdullah bin Abbas (RA) reported that the Prophet (SAW) said that encouraging good, prohibiting evil, lifting the burden of the weak person and removing an offensive thing from a path are all acceptable prayers to Allah. - Ibn Majah

The Value of Women's Beauty in Islam

So when this woman, before leaves the house, like the other woman, she looks in the mirror.

But they're looking in the mirror for something different.

When the woman in the street looks in the mirror, she makes sure she has the best style.

She looks good, she can attract the men! But this woman, when she looks in the mirror,

she makes sure she's dressed appropriately, makes sure that Allah is pleased with her,

makes sure she's covered, so when she goes out in the street and she's covered,

to please ALLAH and she does that...

she's beautiful.

Selamat Hari Ibu dan Ayah

Entri khas yang ditujukan buat kedua orang tua ku tercinta. Jauh di sudut hati, ingin ku balas satu persatu jasamu, ayah dan ibu. Setiap hari adalah hari ibu, begitu juga ayah. Dan hadiah yang mampu ku berikan hanyalah doa. Doa dari seorang anak yang dahagakan rahmat dan restu dari Ilahi. Dan tidak lain tidak bukan. Sudah tentu...hadiah sebuah kejayaan. Perjuangan anakmu ini belum selesai. Selagi Allah mengizinkan aku untuk bernafas di bumi ini, tanggungjawab ku sebagai seorang anak tidak akan pernah selesai. Akan ku hadiahi kalian berdua segulung sijil suatu hari nanti. Dengan izin-NYA. Sebagai tanda kesyukuran atas segala usaha yang kalian berikan selama ini akhirnya membuahkan hasil. Meskipun mungkin ianya mengambil masa yang lama untukku. Hati ini tersentuh bila memikirkan kau menghabiskan keringatmu siang dan malam untuk menghasilkan mujahid dan mujahidah yang berjaya di dunia dan akhirat. InsyaAllah. Kerana Allah, akan ku teruskan perjuangan yang belum selesai ini. Selamat Hari Ibu dan Ayah :')

Dinner at Murni

We went to Murni again! We had lots of fun. Can't stop laughing and seriously it was fun. Unfortunately, Era couldn't come. Never mind, we'll do this again next time :) Oh and we had a bowling tournament last Friday. I brought my camera but I forgot to charge it. How I wish I can share it here. Oh well. Never mind.
