Life After Death (22 April 2008)


Dear friends,
Death. Scary? Or just ordinary?
It is undeniable that everyone in this world will face death. The only thing is we don't know how and when we are going to die. Death cannot be delayed nor be made fast even a second.
What will happen after death? Of course, physically we see when someone die, the person will be buried in the proper way. However no one knows what is happening to us after death. No one can see nor no one can feel unless he is death and death cannot be reversed so no one can tell us what happen after death except Allah through our Al-Quran.
Before the dooms day, we are in the pathway towards it which is life in the burial ground. Life there is untill the judgement day itself. How's life during that time? It all depend on our deed in the world. If we did lots of good thing, we will be get a good payback but if it is the other way round, I guess you know what you'll get.
According to Surah Al-Mukminun phrase 99-100:
Until, when death comes to one of them, he says, "Lord! Return me that possibly I will do righteousness in that which I have left behind." "Not at All!" surely it is the only word he say, and beyond them is an isthmus until the Day they are made to rise again.
My dear friends,
We never know when we are going to die. Come on! Lets do a lot good deeds towards Allah and to each other. This because after we die we can't bring anything with us except the deed that we have done in this world. Lets perform all Allah's instructions because Allah is Fairest of all. He knows what we deserve and what we don't.

Test , Challenge and Obstacle from Allah (21 April 2008)

Assalamualaikum again my dear friends.
Have you ever faced any problem that made you feel down? Or made you feel bad? What would you do and what would you think if you are facing a problem?
Complaining? Sighing? Is that what you do?
Truthfully, all of the problems are challenges from Allah SWT.
I think the obstacles that we faced are still not comparable to the challenge faced by Prophet Ayub A.S.. He was tested with sickness and poorness. However, he still thanked Allah SWT for what he had. For him, Allah has given him prosper and health for all this while, but he was only tested with poverty and sickness for a short time.
My dear friends,
Since our examination is near, don't give up! Work hard because it will give a great pay back.
As stated in Surah Al-Ankabut Phrase 2 :
Does mankind reckon that they will be left to say, "We believe" and will not be tempted(tested).
Whatever it is, be strong for everything

Mother's Doa, A Way Towards Heaven (20 April 2008)

Dear friends,

Let me start my post with a phrase from Al-Quran which is Phrase 36 from Surah An-Nisa' :

And worship Allah and do no associate anything with Him. And (show) fairest (companionship) to parents, your family, the orphans, the indigent and the neighbour who is near kinsman and the neighbour who is strangers an the companion at your side, and the wayfarer, and what your right hands possess. Surely Allah does not love whoever has been conceited (and) constantly boastful.

Dear friends,

Islam demand us to be good to our parents and this is one of the command from Allah SWT that we must fullfil. As a child of our parents, we should be polite , be thankful to them. Besides, we shall never be rough to them and we should always be thankful and always thankful for what they have done for us all these while. They sacrified their energy, time , money and etc. just to fullfil our need so that we are in good care and can grow up in a comfortable and ideal environment. Therefore, there is no doubt for us to be good to our parents as what's being stated in Surah Al-Isra' Phrase 23:
And your Lord has decreed that you should not worship any except Him (only) and (to show) fairest companionship to parents; in case ever one or both of them reaches old age in your presence, do not say to them, "Fie!" nor scold the ; and speak to them respectful words.
All of these really proves to us that we should be good to our parents esspecially to our mother. Why and why and why? Have you ever thought of how much did your mother sacrified for you at the time of pregnancy. 9 months of pregnancy and being ended with a highly risk labour that may lead to fatal. This period of pregnancy and labour itself shows how much our mother love us. I don't deny the importance of father but there is a hadith of Rasulullah SAW:
"From Muawiyah bin Haidatal Qusyairi : I asked Rasulullah : who should we be good to? Rasulullah answered : Your mother. I asked: who's next? Rasulullah answered : Your mother. Again I asked : Who's next? Again he answered : Your mother. Again I asked : Who' next your father and the people near to you."
Rasulullah had also stated that : Heaven is beneath the sole of the foot of your Mother.
See how much Islam has raised the status of a woman. This truly prove the speculation by the others that Islam doesn't appreciate woman wrong.
Dear friends,
Since Mother's Day is approaching, have you ever thought of a way to appreciate your mother?
It's good if you have thought of it. Or you just start to think about your mother during festivals and some special ocasions. The truth is, you should show your appreciation to your mother in every second of your life.
This serve as a reminder to my friends and I who are student studying overseas and also all of the people in this world. Remember, Prayer from a mother is a way or a road towards heaven.
Hope this short reminder could benefit us.

Alhamdulillah! Thank You Allah! (19 April 2004)

Well, this is my first blog. I still haven't found any factors that made me start to blog. Assalamualaikum and Hello to everyone. Ahlan Wahsalan Marhaban Bikum.

Surely today, I am so thankful to Allah, that I was given the joy of Iman and Islam, besides many more other joy and success in my life. Alhamdulillah, I was given then chance to get continue my study in this lovely place which is Egypt. It is one of the most magical place in the world. Besides showing my thankfulness to Allah, I would like to show my thankfulness to my parents, siblings, family, friend and not to be forgotten the government, esspecially Sabah State Government for giving a full sponsorship of my study here. It is not that I am thanking them 100% for all I had achieved for all this while. I know and I understand that all of these come from Allah SWT the one and only Almighty God. However, if I am not mistaken, one of the way to be thankful to Allah SWT is to be thankful among ourselves. This is a logic matter. Well, we as human, of course would help people sincerely without hoping for any payback. However, we also don't asked for any backstabbers that betrayed us. Dear friends, what would you feel if you helped somebody and you are betrayed by that person. Do you want that to happen to you? Of course not. So, keep this thing in your mind everytime. If you know how bad it is, then you should start to be thankful of course to Allah and the ones who helped us with the will of Allah SWT. Life as a student is truly challenging but the help received from all over serve as a good remedy. I have no doubt that the same thing goes to other students. Therefore, we should always be thankful. This serves as a reminder for myself and also the others. Think everyday, are you being thankful or are you being rebellious in your thankfulness. Think and think my dear friends.

As what is stated in Surah Ibrahim phrase 7: As your lord has notified (you), " Indeed if you are grateful I will definitely increase you (your joy) and indeed in case you disbelieve surely My torment is indeed strict."

Once again, lets be thankful my friends. All the advantages comes from Allah SWT, while all the disadvantages comes from myself.
