On forgiveness and fairytale

“Learn to forgive. Forgive everything from the past and forgive anyone from your past. Because in this world, nobody is perfect.”

Learn to forgive. Forgive everything from the past and forgive anyone from your past. Because in this world, nobody is perfect. We all make mistakes. And it is always good and noble to forgive someone in your life. When it comes to love, teach your heart to always forgive your loved one. It doesn't matter how bad or how much it hurts, learn to forgive them. The best thing about forgiving someone is at the same time you are pleasing Allah Taala.

“When you stop searching for a Prince and make Allah Taala the King of your heart, He will help you to complete your fairytale. InshaAllah.”

Remember, Allah always has a better plan for each and one of us. InshaAllah. I can’t tell you how thankful I am to Allah Taala that because of Him, I’ve learned to see and improve my mistakes from the past. I’ve done so many mistakes. Now, all I want to do is to change myself to become a better person. InshaAllah. I believe in Allah. I believe that He has written something special for me. Special that it takes a lot of patience and prayer. All I want to do now is to prepare myself for that special person. A special person whom I’ll be spending the rest of my life with through thick and thin, and the most important thing – the one who will lead me towards Allah, who will become the Imam of my prayers, the father of my children, the one who will always hold my hand and together helping each other to attain Jannah. InshaAllah. To me, it’s not just about – love. It’s more than that. It’s about responsibilities and commitment. It’s about the beginning of the journey together towards forever in Jannah. And most of all, I want it to be special, to experience it according to what Allah has already planned for me.

I will always be waiting for that day to come.

Dear heart, have faith in Allah.

Ieka Ahmad.

Reason why I love butterflies

The story of the butterfly.

“It was the early blossoming of spring and a girl was wandering through a garden when she discovered a cocoon hanging from the branch of a tree. It was almost time for a butterfly to emerge. Fascinated with her discovery she returned to the garden daily, enthusiastic to see all that would happen and hoping never to miss a thing. One day, a small opening appeared and the girl saw the butterfly struggling to free itself from its cocoon and enter a new world. She watched intently until the butterfly seems to have stopped making progress. It appeared as if it had gone as far as possible and could go no further. The girl made a sudden decision. She began to remove pieces of the cocoon that were obstructing the butterfly. Excited, she watched as the butterfly emerged, hoping its wings would unfold. But her excitement turned into dismay as the butterfly remained unable to move. It was then that girl realized what was happening. The cocoon was intended to create the struggle necessary for the butterfly to fly. In fact, it was not trying to escape. This was just nature’s way of making its wings stronger. It occurred to the girl that the butterfly would actually be grateful to the cocoon for the struggle that they would share.”
