We Are The Travellers

This life is a journey, and we are the travellers.  
Our destination is Jannah
Our pit-stop is the Earth, where all our deeds will be counted.  Like stopping by a RnR to get your supplies, so that you can continue your journey.  That's it.

We got a long way to go^^

Pernah baca puisi The Road Not Taken oleh Robert Frost? Antara baitnya begini :

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both,
And be one traveler, long I stood,
And looked down one as far as I could,
To where it bent in the undergrowth

Two roads diverged in a wood, 
and I—I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

Ringkasnya, kembara ini berkisar tentang pilihan.  Salah pilih, kita yang merana.  Lain jalan, lain kesudahannya.  Sama seperti hidup ini, you choose the path of your life.  Tak kira seorang siswi di Universiti Teknologi Petronas, penanam teh di Ceylon mahupun Imam Masjidil Haram di Mekah, misinya tetap sama - mencari redha Allah.  Aite?

Mengulas juga tentang kembara.  Islam mengajar kita untuk menilai sesuatu perkara dari segi kualitatif, bukannya kuantitatif.  Contohnya, seseorang itu gemar mengembara.  Jelajahnya melangkau ceruk benua.  Malangnya tiada input yang didapati dari kembara tersebut.  Yang ada cuma timbunan souvenir luar negara.  Tak ke rugi namanya?
What matters is what we get.  Bukan sekadar sight-seeing kosong.  It'll be better andai setiap trip/setiap event yang kita sertai itu, ada input yang boleh kita sumbangkan balik kepada Islam, masyarakat & diri ^^
Alangkah baiknya andai kembara yang dilalui itu menguatkan rasa kagum kepada Pencipta, bagi boost nak buat ibadah.  Setidak-tidaknya, menjadi modal tambah kepada kita, dalam misi untuk mencabut jahiliyah & menanam cahaya fitrah!

 "Maka apakah mereka tidak berjalan di muka bumi, lalu mereka mempunyai hati yang dengan itu mereka dapat memahami atau mempunyai telinga yang dengan itu mereka dapat mendengar? Kerana sesungguhnya bukanlah mata itu yang buta, tetapi yang buta ialah hati yang di dalam dada".
(Al-Hajj 22:46)

It doesn't matter who you are, what matters is what you do for the sake of Islam^^  Kembara kita masih panjang.  Jangan lupa kumpul aset banyak - banyak sebelum dipanggil berjumpa Pencipta.  Remember, you decide your own path of life.  Kadang-kadang diri ini yang keras sangat untuk berubah, terlupa bahawa ego kita ini mungkin menjadi satu-satu penghalang yang menghadang kita dari Jannah.  :)
Di Syria, Palestin & Mesir, mereka berlumba-lumba mengejar syahid.  Kita di Malaysia?Syahid atas jalanraya?

p/s : Salam Kemerdekaan ke-56.  Moga merdeka jiwa & minda dari jahiliyah.  
Mari kembali kepada fitrah kita, ISLAM :)

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 …
