Lose Yourself in Ramadhan

*Inspired by Eminem's "Lose Yourself"

If you had one shot,
One opportunity,
Your one moment,
To seize everything you've always wanted,
Your moment with Allah,
Would you capture it,
Or just let it slip?

Every moment in Ramadan is equally holy,
From dawn to dusk,
From morn to midnight.

It's like sunlight to the heart,
It's like being one with your loved one and never ever wanting to be apart.
It's like inhaling the crisp and clean breeze in the morning,
It's like a flower nourished by water. 

We feel the intense hunger from not eating,
But we feel stronger from fasting.

We feel sleepy from reading the Quran,
But through contemplating its meanings, the holes in our souls are filled with Iman.

We are no saints as we have sinned.

It's time to through away your old hearts, 
Ask Allah for a new one.

Seek forgiveness like someone drowning gasping for air,
Like a child crying, mourning, asking for his mom,
Like a slave burning in fire wanting to be saved.

Ramadan is a month of mercy,
A month of clemency,
A month of forgiveness,
A month of kindness.

You gotta yourself in Ramadan,
Capture the moment,
You own it,
You better never let it go,
Because you got one shot,
Do not,
Miss the chance to glow,
This opportunity comes,
Once in a life time.

Islam is not only during Ramadan,
Once Ramadan finishes,
Islam dies with it?
Ramadan is a spawning ground,
A motivation,
A love story.

Reflections from Akademi Dakwah Muslimah

Bismillah,
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

Bismillah,
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?

Bismillah,
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 …
