Unspoken Epilogue

Unspoken Epilogue
Do you still remember,
The day when you don’t belong,
To the land of your own,
Do you still remember the hardships?
The sorrows..
The bitterness...
The grievance
The hope and urge to be freed
From the dark clutches of colonialism...
Will you ever remember?
How our heroes achieved this freedom?
Will you bother to care?
About the endless sacrifices they made?
Will you even stop and ponder?
How they fought for our rights as a Malaysian..
With dignity and a truly blazing spirit...
And now,
52 years gone in a second..
And our Malaysia is still here..
Still standing proud
Soaring its splendid wings
I want you to know that,
This is the day we celebrate our independence,
The day we stand up high with pride,
This is the day we pray for the prosperity
and progress of our Nation,
May the harmony forever remain,
Let us continue the glory our heroes had gained,
Hand in hand, we fight for distinction,
Together, we stay united
In the spirit of goodwill
As one nation, One Malaysia,
I want you to stop for a second
And reminisce,
The day we flew our flag of freedom from east to west,
With such courage, liberty and justice..
And I just want you to know that,
I am proud to be a Malaysian,
Where at least I know I’m free,
And I will never ever forget the sacrifices they made,
To give that right for me....

Reflections from Akademi Dakwah Muslimah

Alhamdulillah, I'm back after 6 months!  Completing my final year studies and finishing all the projects on time did really acquire me to make some sacrifices, my blogging time is one of it. Nevertheless, I've successfully graduated from UTP since the last two months and here I am now, back in Perlis.
Frankly saying, I think this is the longest period of my stay at home since I started my degree studies 5-years ago. Most of my semester breaks were spent doing SRC works, couple of Minggu Aluan Siswa (MAS) weeks and study related matter. For now, It's kinda payback time. 😂
Alhamdulillah, last weekend I attended Akademi Dakwah Muslimah at Tasoh Lake Resort, organized by Jabatan Mufti Perlis. The 2-day seminar covered 6 topics which I found to be very attentive and practical as a Muslimah. Being a student not from Islamic Studies background did give me the chills at first, however after a couple of hours listening intently to the speakers, I've gotten a good kicks…

Leap of Faith

Today I'm not going to talk about the leap of faith in Assassins Creed, which Cal (Michael Fassbender) attempted to save himself. 

Google defines leap of faith as 'an act of believing in or attempting something whose existence or outcome cannot be proved'. In other words, to make a big decision which may have a big impact on one's life, with no guarantee whether it'll end up a success or a failure. It can be choosing between furthering your study and become an academician or enter the industrial world, getting married or changing the stream of your study. Some decisions may have a bigger impact in our lives, compared to the others.

This has been one of the longest period which I've stayed at home since the last 5 years. With the flexibility and ample of time in hand, post-graduation has really got me thinking. Somehow the transition between university life to the next phase isn't as fast and smooth-sailing as I've imagined. It's not like tod…

What Shall We Do on Fridays?

So, we have reached another Jumu'ah in 2017, we are getting closer and closer towards Ramadhan, the time has been flying faster than ever. Hopefully we can make everyday meaningful by being a productive and impactful Muslim, insyaAllah.
I'd like to share the inputs that I've learned (almost a year ago, now flipping the note pages) during an Ibrah Seminar on Surah Al-Jumu'ah by Ust. Syaari Abdul Rahman. Alhamdulillah, the seminar was very insighful, I attended this program with my beloved juniors Sakinah, Syera & Chad. We took a day-trip as Bangi and UTP is only a 2.5 hrs drive.
About Surah Al-Jumu'ah
- This is the 62nd surah in the Quran, consisting of 11 verses.  - It is positioned after Surah As-Saff and before Surah Al-Munafiqun. - A Madaniyah surah (meaning that this surah was reveled after the event of Hijrah - where Rasululullah saw and the sahabahs migrated from Mecca to Madinah).
What is Ibrah?
Ibrah is the lesson learnt that we can gain and emulate …
