Istikharah

By Ieka Ahmad - 8:41:00 PM

Hello, November!
I can't believe that we've left October weeks ago.
And I can't even believe that I've just finished my last paper today. 

Alhamdulillah.

It was the toughest weeks ever in my life. 
I think I've done the best that I could in this exam and it's time to put my tawakal in Allah. 

I've been doing a lot of reflecting and reminiscing lately. I couldn't have done this without His help. Almost three years living in a foreign country, with foreign house mates, and speaking in a foreign language. My God. When I think back, how on earth did I manage to survive in Australia this long? Yet I'm thankful for this opportunity. To experience a different culture, meeting wonderful people and travel to amazing places, these are the golden experiences that I will forever treasure in my life. Masha'Allah. It has always been my dream to study abroad, and with Allah's permission, He granted my prayer. Alhamdulillah.

One thing that I would like to share is never underestimate the power of istikharah. From this journey, I've learned to always seek Allah's help whenever we have to make a decision in life. How easy it is and how amazing Allah is that even just by praying two raka'ah can give such tremendous impacts in one's life. Subhanallah. Before I came to Brisbane, I was offered by another two universities where one was located in Melbourne and another one in Perth. I know. It was so tight. I didn't know which one to choose because all of them were equally good. And the first thing that came into my mind was istikharah. Finally, I chose Brisbane. Every decision that you make in which you involve Allah in it, such decision will never be a regretted one. I'm reminding myself and those who are reading this.

Subhanallah.

Now I can't wait to do istikharah for another one of the biggest decisions in my life. 
Guess what? Marriage. Haha.
