Of Growing Faces and Age.


All these pictures were taken in KLIA before departing to Egypt each year, when I came back for summer. How reluctant I am to come back, only Allah knows. But I guess He had finally gave me the answer when I found this verse:

' Not equal are those of the believers who sit (at home), except those who are disabled (by injury or are blind or lame) and those who strive hard and fight in the Cause of Allah with their wealth and their lives, Allah has preferred in grades those who strive hard and fight with their wealth and their lives to those who sit (at home) To each, Allah has promised good (Paradise) but Allah has preferred those who strive hard and fight, to those who sit (at home) by a huge reward.' 
[An-Nisa': 95]

Studying in the Cause of Allah is also considered as Jihad isn't? May Allah reward us with Jannah. Ameen.

*Been through a rough phase for the past few weeks as a Third Year Medical Student. Sometimes, I do ponder; can I survive for another couple of years here? Ya Allah, give me strength and do increase my Imaan because I know with every difficulty there is relief.

'Allah burdens not a person beyond his scope. He gets reward for that (good) which he has earned, and he is punished for that (evil) which he has earned. 'Our Lord! Punish us not if we forget or fall into error, our Lord! Lay not on us a burden like that which You did lay on those before us ( Jews and Christians); our Lord! Put not on us a burden greater than we have strength to bear. Pardon us and grant us forgiveness. Have mercy on us. You are our Maula (Patron, Supporter and Protector) and give us victory over the disbelieving people'

Exam of Endocrine System is coming in less than one week. Rabbbuna Yussahil everyone!

Back again here, finally. Rejuvenating everything; the blog's layout ( Kudos to the big sister, Along for making this super dull gloomy blog more lively again), the spirit,the soul and most importantly, the Iman. Few months left as a Sophomore as a medical student here in Alexandria,InshaAllah. Time flies so fast that I could not even remember what I have been doing during this year when finally I'm reaching towards its end already. That means, few more days towards final examination, and soon towards Malaysia,Biiznillah. So basically, nothing much to share here but I just want to share some of my 10 cents regarding examination. What I've been observing so far, people will always stressed out whenever it comes to examination ( since Alexandria University is always having examination compared to others here in Egypt). 

Some of my prior observations during examination week:

-Exam Fever Campaign will be launched, where majority of us will change their default picture on the social network to whatever related exam stuffs.

-We ( because it happens also to me sometimes) are so stressed out thinking about tons of modules to be digested and we tend to forget our obligations towards the One who is actually going to grant us success or failure. Or maybe, we become closer towards Him during this time only. Eg: Waking up for Tahajjud, performing the Solat Sunat, and reading the Al- Quran more frequent than other days. Why? It is so hard for us to be Istiqamah,isn't it?  This is something for us to ponder upon.

-Maybe we become closer towards the Creator but how about our obligations towards our circle of friends? Do we really care about them during these days or we just go focusing merely on our books?

'Indignity is put over them wherever they may be, except when under a covenant (of protection) from Allah, and a covenant from men; they have drawn on themselves the Wrath of Allah and destitution is put over them'....( 3:112)
Or in a simple words, I shall say Habluminallah, Habluminnas.

Quoting several friend's status on facebook:

~Sahabat-sahabat, JANGAN kita menjadi HAMBA EXAM.
~Study untuk exam atau study kerana Allah? Sebenarnya, tidak timbul pertembungan antara kedua-dua perkara tersebut kerana EXAM adalah KEPERLUAN, AKHIRAT ialah TUJUAN.

So, it is well said right? So examination is actually a part of our life. For me personally, the true examination is during the Day of Judgement; Jannah or Hell (Nauzubillah) What is far most important is, we should strive, and give our best and leave the rest up to Him.

Tawwakul is not an act of the limbs—it is an act of the heart.  And so while the limbs are striving hard, the heart is completely reliant on Allah.  This means whatever the outcome of the limbs’ striving, the heart will be completely satisfied, knowing that it is the flawless decision of Allah.
But in order to reach this level, one must hold on to hope, strive with the limbs, and let go with the heart- Yasmin Mogahed. 
For complete story, you can read it here.
And that shall end my dull boring post. Till then! Let us together muhasabah ourselves towards a better Moslem inshaAllah :)

Thank you for always reminding me to help the needy people out there.

Thank you for being there whenever I feel that I got no one to turn to.
Thank you for some time being spent hearing me grumbling,blabbering and complaining when I'm so stressed up.
Thank you for calming me down when my life is a mess.
Thank you for asking me to keep believing in Him when I'm at my weakest point sometimes.
Thank you for all your positive words and vibes when negativity strikes me.
Thank you for standing beside me when I think the whole world is going against me.
Thank you for for being there when I need YOU the most!

And above all, I THANK YOU Ya Allah for sending me those great people in my life.
Who are they?

'Friends on that day will be foes one to another, save those who kept their duty (to Allah)'. [Az-Zukhruf:67]

'The best companion is when you see his/her face you remember Allah, listen to his/her words will increase your knowledge about Islam and when you see his/her movements remind you of death. '

'The weakest man among all is the one who cannot find a friend and the worst than this is when you didn't appreciate the friend you have. [Saidina Ali R.A]'

Who Are We?

Since the society nowdays are being way too judgmental, thus, this is something for me,you and us to ponder upon.

#who are we to judge he's handsome and she's beautiful?
#who are we to judge he's pious and she's religious?
#who are we to judge he's rich and she's poor?
#who are we to judge he's intelligent and she's brilliant?
#who are we to judge he's kind and she's stingy?
#who are we to judge he's matured and she's childish?
#who are we to judge he's fat and she's thin?
#who are we to judge he's good and she's bad?

Because after all, its not WE who is going to judge but its US who will be judged soon at the very end of the day. So lets make a new resolution! 2012;towards a greater good: Better person and most importantly, better Muslim Insha Allah :)
