>> Break: Busy Times <<

Assalamualaikum everyone...

I have not posted anything here for a while, although at times, I have loads to share. This is due to time limit (yup.. busy during holidays- this is the 1st time i'm experiencing it). Another reason is because I did not bring my laptop here, currently. I'm in Pahang with my family for a few days, but without a laptop (sigh..).

Will write as soon as possible..

An Open Letter

Dear friends…

Firstly, I’d like to clarify.  That this letter is written, not of hatred.  Nor to spread lies in the net.  But because of love.  Love to you, as my friend, and also brothers and sisters in Islam, bonded by a bond that is stronger than any other ties, the bond of aqeedah.  Though it may be years since we last met, I still love you, for I had promised myself:  to love you, fillah, abadan abada


There are news that I heard.  No, not one, but tons.  No, not good news, but news which I am greatly saddened by.  What?  It is news upon news, one after another, of my friends finding ‘partners’ or perhaps… ‘love’.  No, not thru marriage, but by un-syara’ ways.


One thousand and one emotion surge thru me as I heard and witness them all. Anger?  Yes.  Hate?  Definitely.  No, not at you, my dear friends, but at those acts of disobedience to Allah that you had done.  Also to the syaitan that had successfully fooled you.


Please…  WAKE UP!!  Do not fall into syaitan’s trap.  Having a relationship with someone, declaring a guy/girl special is declared HARAM in Islam.  The ever-famous verse in the Quran, “La taqrabu zina” says it all.  “Do not come NEAR adultry”, Allah said.  Not “do not perform adultry”.  Hence even coming near adultry is haram, and staying away from it becomes WAJIB.


Sure, tons of arguments can be put up against it.  But remember, the saying is not mine, nor is it your mother’s, but it is the words of Allah, and thus it becomes MANDATORY.  Affirmitively, no arguments allowed.



Dear friends who I really care of…


We have been thought, undergo the process of self development (tarbiyyah) and learn Islam for so long…  but why did you still fall?  Did you not feel your iman criying inside?  Did you not notice that Allah seems far and out-of-reach, as you go along, being close to the opposite gender?


Remember, that a heart, if not watered by imaan, remembrance to Allah, and amalan soleh (good deeds), can wither and die.  Love for the world and going against Allah’s commands (ie doing ma’siah such as going out with a non-mahram, sms-ing and chatting on the phone/ online with him/her) are toxic, which will harden the heart, eventually resulting it to die.


Be careful, oh friends… be afraid… that one day, your cries for Him will not be heard.  Beware of the day, when you try to find Him, yet He is not there for you.  For then your heart has died (Nauzubillah!)

'Eid Mubarak!!

30 Pictures, Images and Photos

'Eid Mubarak everyone.... 
Let us recall back and recapture the spirit and strife of Prophet Ibrahim a.s. and his child, Prophet Ismail in obeying Allah under every condition and under any circumstances.  Let us strive to increase our iman and strengthen our taqwa in living for Allah and spreading the Deen..

Travel - See - Think! (Part II)


Marks my expedition high up

A trek thru the ‘canopy walk’

Till 41m above the ground

Weaving through tree branches

Testing my courage

And reminding me, again and again

Of Allah’s Greatness, and Perfection

Also, even high up there…

He is still close by

Taking care of every corner,

Every single leaf of every tree

Each bird that ever chirps


My dearest sis

Thank you for your quick assurance

When we read the dua’a together

Atop of the ‘rope bridge’

“Bismillahi tawakkaltu ‘alaLlah”

And from being scared, you became so brave

Confidently saying, ever so assuring

 “No worries, Allah will protect us”

And my own fears vanish

With a smile that you did not see

And a whisper

“Thank you, oh Allah…

For giving me a lil sis who trusts You

And reminding me as well,

That my trust in only for You…”


Pulau Manukan

Your greatest beuty

Is hidden deep inside the ocean

The vareity of fishes and corals

Of all shapes, size and colors,

Left me silent with awe

At the sight of them all


And to You, dear Lord, my thanks go

For the precious experience

Of myself, first time snorkeling

Opening up a whole new world

The underwater world

Oh, how very accurately You created

Each creature, with its own function

Different and unique

In its own special way



As time flew by

The vacation ends…

So sadly, I say,

Goodbye, Sabah

Thanks for the memmories

And thanks for the wonderful days

Hope to see you again soon…

Travel - See - Think!

Just a shot at writing a poem... mind the mistakes, i haven't edited them yet...

Mount Kinabalu beacons me

Welcoming me with its untamed greatness

The South China Sea greets softly

With its lapping waves and soothing sounds


Thank you, ya ar-Rahman

Giving me this valuable opportunity

To travel, visit, and observe

Appreciate Your creations...

And get to know more about You

To store wonderful memmories

Expanding knowledge, experience,

And not to mention, IMAN!


Mt Kinabalu…

You amaze me with your height

Your vastness and might

Full of untamed nature

And oh, so picture perfect!


Thank you...

For letting me realize

How very small I am in this planet earth

How irrelevent it is, to think we are so great

So powerful, that we can defy Allah’s rules

And how illogical

To think that the world revolves around us

For we are nobody, at all,

But His servants

Also… thank you for showing me

The perfect beauty that Allah have created

He is indeed the Creator (al-Khaliq) and the King (al-Mulk)

And as weak humans… we need Him

At every step of our journey

At each phase of life

Till the end…


I enjoyed you

Your breathtaking view

Left me at awe and wonder

Drives my mind to ponder

The hidden truth and facts within

Your fresh mountain air

Led me hoping

That my iman will be as fresh

And my drive to spread Islam will thrive

**To be continued...
