the shepherd

This story was told by Shaykh Hamza Yusuf from his own experience in one of his speeches during RIS. When he was studying in Mauritania, there was this one night that he and one of his friend need to go from let say point A to point B. His teacher reminded them that on their way, there will be a place named "isbir" (meaning: be patient). If they face any problem when reaching that place, fasbir (meaning: So be patient). There will be a tent if you walk to the right of the place, and a man will insyaAllah help you. So as Allah decreed, that night it was raining so heavily and their vehicle stuck in mud at the very place named Isbir. ("waAllahi, this is a true story brothers and sisters." he kept on repeating this). So then they did what their shaykh told them. They found a tent where a shepherd lived in it. The shepherd was so happy to see both of them that he slaughtered on of his goats and they ate from it. It was still raining so heavily and the tent keep on flipping. The shepherd somehow hold on the pillar of his tent to keep it from falling apart. After that Shaykh Hamza and his friend fell asleep and  guess what guys? when they woke up for fajr, that man was still holding that pillar. He masyaAllah did that all night so that the tent wont fall on them  as they were sleeping.(Shaykh Hamza Yusuf's voice became different in a way that he actually restraining himself from crying).

He is just a shepherd, brothers and sisters, that live in a tent, far away from this internet or ipod world that we are in now, yet he possess this amazing akhlaq. If we today still fight over small things, unwilling to sacrifice and put ourself first before others, it is really the time that we wake up. Good akhlaq is one of the thing that we need to enter jannah, apart from a sound relationship with Allah.

May Allah forgive and guide us.

Skies are blue. (so does my blog hehe)

Somewhere.. over the rainbow.. skies are blue, and the dreams that you dare to dream,    really do come true.

Do they not look at the Camels, how they are made?

And at the Sky, how it is raised high?

And at the Mountains, how they are fixed firm?

And at the Earth, how it is spread out?

So remind them, for your mission is to give them the Reminder!

(O_o) subhanAllah I really miss the scenery. (o_O)

Economic systems help us make the choices, but do not solve the problem of scarcity. When we make choices, by definition, we forgo something
This is the only thing that I learn/agree/like/absorb from Econs 101 this semester. Thank you and wish me luck for the final tomorrow 6 hours from now. Gulp gila nak amek final otak kosong cani.


Sajdah M. Othman was delivered at five and a half weeks; she weighed 1 pound, 6 ounces. She was small and still. There was a peace about her. I held her for a little under fifteen minutes, and then she was whisked away by the midwife.
All the insha’Allahs in every other sentence. Every other thought. Muslims tend to sprinkle their conversation with religious words, but it wasn’t like that. I knew of the story in Surat Al-Kahf, when the Prophet (peace be upon him) did not say it, and revelation was withheld for a little while. The verse was sent down as a reminder to say “insha’Allah” so I was adamant on remembering to say it. I hadn’t, however, fully internalized what it meant. Not until now.
This was my reminder that Allah has ultimate control over our affairs. We can try and plan and make decisions to the best of our abilities. In the end, it is Allah that wills it or not. Insha’Allah isn’t some magic word, that when said, things have to occur. It means exactly what it says: “If Allah wills it.”

Europe 2009: Day 4

Fussen, Germany

(you can ignore whatever i wrote in between pictures because sume tuu ngarot je cuk3 pictures will tell it all ceyyy)
The castle was build by King Ludwig(whoever he is haha tp they said that he owns many strange properties, sleep all day and wake up at night and finish a book per night. wah awesome seronok betol hidup die kan) and Neuchwanstein castle is said to be the fairiest of all the fairy castles, situated on top of a hill surrounded by mountains. and lake(kecewa tak sempat pegi lake). and Mr Disney yg buat Disneyland tu pon inspired by this castle. Inspired tuu means tiru ke? Okay this is the picture tapi dalam banyak2 hari yang ada, time saya pegi jugak la de nak buat construction. Sabar2. haha.

and I took this picture(eh jgn perasan, maybe Zed yg amek hehe) when I was on this bridge called Marienbrücke. Nama cam power kan tapi meaning de Mary's bridge je. haha.

Since the castle is up on a mountain, we decided to ride this horse-drawn carriage. Kesiaaan Mr Horse tauuu sbb cam penat je nak carry 10 org naik bukit? and bukti de penat is dkt tengah2 jln on the way naik bukit tu Mr. Horse suddenly stop and *ehem ehem*. We were like, "wat! berat sgt la kitorang niii". haha of course Mr. Horse tu jawab helo berat ah tu pon nak tanya. You know what make it worst? I sat like betol2 blakang Mr. Horse tu. Sampai hati kuda cuk3. hahahaa.

but anyway thanks lah en. kuda if not tak smpai la sy kat atas tu. Ni betol2 thanks ni bukan sarcastic ke apa walaupon anda *ehem ehem* tanpa segan silu di depan saya hesh tekanan betol. The scenery up on the hill was breathtaking masyaAllah. Rasa cam dlm fairy tale tuu yg ada putera hensem2 tuu.

Oh tanpa diduga cewah kitorang berdua terjumpa Malaysian di atas castle itu. Relax laa bukan putera raja pon, malaysian je. haha. He was on vacation too with his friends. So dia pon meng"offer" utk take some pictures for us alhamdulillah lalu kami tidaklah boleh melepaskan peluang keemasan itu. Lalu muncullah gambar kami berduet kerana selalunya kami mengambil giliran utk bergambar hihi.

After settle dgn segala bnda kat atas seperti berangan ada putera raja (again?), kitorang pon turun la with an intention to find ice cream yg telah diusha time nak naik. Time tgh separa selok deciding on what to buy, tiba tibaa, "JIHA ZED, meh minum uncle blanja." Lalu walaupon dengan lemah lembut dan bersopan santun menolak namun apalah daya kami hanya manusia biasa. Hancur lebur la harapan utk ke Hohenschwangau Castle and lake haha. Lepas berborak with uncle and family, kami berdua pon turun la dengan kaki kami walaupon sudah penat berjalan konon2nya nak menikmati scenery indah (eleh padahal tade duit da nak bagi kuda haa kantoi!)

and here is Hohenschwangau Castle dari jauh(Oh noooo maybe prince tinggal kat sini kan?)

Ok dah la membebel. Why do I have so much to say about this place? sebab saya igt dapat jumpa putera raja. Hik just because I need to do something other than reading Econs. just because.

He knows.

I still remember how I initially talked to my dad and he passed the phone to my uncle during 2nd semester of freshman year(wah igt detail tuu).

Uncle macho: Ganow blaja nor? (or dalam bahasa kg saya how's school?)
Freshie cute:   Susooooh. Test sume Nor tok score pong Ayoh Cik. (and I with the speed of light whining about school and how hard it was back then kah3)
Uncle macho: Its okay Nor, kito key adow Allah. Mat saleh tu sume manow adow.
Freshie cute:  Tu lah Ayoh Cik... (da tak mampuuu den nak ckp, sobs why whyyy kena buat ayat camtuuu ni nak nanges ni tp control macho laa kan as always hihi)

Moralnya dont be sad or never ever eveeer be sad over something yang "tak patut" because Allah is always there. Bak kata Zain Bhikha in his song, “When you carrying a monster load, And you wonder how far you can go, With every step on that road that you take, Allah knows, Allah knows”. Haih tak ke malu diri sndri dok whining tak hengat cuk3? and it is actually pretty sweet to remember all this stuff when I was only two or a final away from my final semester. I did it, right Ayoh Cik? Yeahh one eighth to go babyy. Okok apa2 pon pointnyaaa nak menunjuk nunjuk sila tengok email ni hihi:

Renung2kan dan selamat beramal!(ayat tazkirah radio mana ntah).

Last year -->  "Canada? Forget it"

This year -->  Jom! Even tak betol2 pegi lagi, I'm exceedingly happy by just planning to go. See? We will never know what awaits us in the future. Last year saya tgk trailer RIS berkali-kali, not even have a hope to go because it seems impossible.

If everything run smoothly, alhamdulillah, if not, also alhamdulillah. Indeed Allah is the best planner.

Every soul will get what it earns"

happy ending?

When life throws a sucker punch, what better thing to do but pick up the divine book of guidance? In the Qur’an, Allah tells us the story of Prophet Yusuf, using an entire chapter to detail his life from happy child, to scared captive, to slave, to prisoner, to the vizier who saves his people from starvation. If an individual was to meet Yusuf as he lay imprisoned for years in Egypt, and ask the Prophet to retell his story, what would we hear?
We would hear a tale of heartbreak, betrayal, grief, deceit; where a young man is betrayed by his brothers and left  to die, sold into slavery, raised far from his loving parents, tricked by his master’s wife, and jailed for false reasons. Looking at his story from this snapshot in time, without knowing the rest of the story, one would be inclined to see the injustice happening to one of the best of creation. What did he do to deserve this? But as his story unfolds, and the Prophet Yusuf is made a vizier of Egypt, he guides his country to successfully survive famine. It becomes clear how every event in his life was divinely ordained by Allah for the good of himself and the good of his people.

It is difficult – perhaps even foolhardy – to judge events in this life when we do not understand the qadr (divine will) of Allah. Perhaps our trials will end in success in this life; perhaps they will guarantee us success in the life to come. Our role is to face our tests with sabr (patience), remembering to have tawakul (trust) in Allah and worshipping Him with sincerity. As Allah says in the Qur’an, “We grant the Home in the Hereafter to those who do not seek superiority on earth or spread corruption: the happy ending is awarded to those who are mindful of God.” (28:83)

by By Marya Bangee in Suhaib Webb's.

The Last Sermon

Also known as khutbatul wada'. Rasulullah delivered this khutbah in front of a large crowd during his last Hajj. Imagine if anyone rasa or have the feelings that he will die soon, surely he will only talk about something very important yang tahap melampau je kan. So this is what Rasulullah SAW ckp in his very last sermon, sume bnda penting and very crucial, take time and reflect, please.

O People
Lend me an attentive ear, for I know not whether after this year, I shall ever be amongst you again. Therefore listen to what I am saying to you very carefully and take these words to those who could not be present here today.

O People
Just as you regard this month, this day, this city as sacred, so regard the life and property of every Muslim as a sacred trust. Return the goods entrusted to you to their rightful owners. Hurt no one so that no one may hurt you. Remember that you will indeed meet your Lord, and that He will indeed reckon your deeds. Allah has forbidden you to take usury (interest); therefore all interest obligation shall henceforth be waived. Your capital, however, is yours to keep. You will neither inflict nor suffer any inequity.

Allah has Judged that there shall be no interest and that all interest due to Abbas Ibn ‘Abd al Muttalib (the Prophet's uncle) shall henceforth be waived.

Beware of Satan for the safety of your religion. He has lost all hope that he will ever be able to lead you astray in big things, so beware of following him in small things.

O People
It is true that you have certain rights in regard to your women, but they also have rights over you. Remember that you have taken them as your wives, only under Allah's trust and with His permission. If they abide by your right then to them belongs the right to be fed and clothed in kindness. Do treat you women well and be kind to them, for they are your partners and committed helpers. And it is your right that they do not make friends with anyone of whom you do not approve, as well as never to be unchaste.

O People
Listen to me in earnest, worship Allah, say your five daily prayers (Salah), fast during the month of Ramadan, and give your wealth in Zakat.

Perform Hajj if you can afford to.

All mankind is from Adam and Eve, an Arab has no superiority over a non-Arab nor a non-Arab has any superiority over an Arab; also a white has no superiority over a black, nor a black has any superiority over a white- except by piety and good action. Learn that every Muslim is a brother to every Muslim and that the Muslims constitute one brotherhood. Nothing shall be legitimate to a Muslim, which belongs to a fellow Muslim unless it was given freely and willingly. Do not therefor, do injustice to yourselves.

Remember one day you will appear before Allah and answer for your deeds. So beware, do not stray from the path of righteousness after I am gone. People, no prophet or apostle will come after me and no new faith will be born. Reason well therefore, O people, and understand words which I convey to you. I leave behind me two things, the Quran and the Sunnah (Hadith), and if you follow these you will never go astray. All those who listen to me shall pass on my words to others and those to others again; and may the last ones understand my words better than those who listened to me directly.
Be my witness, O Allah, that I have conveyed your message to your people."


This will always be my favorite yet the saddest speech to read, reflect and ponder upon. May Allah guide us. Allahumma ameen.

2 DhulHijjah 1430

Maka marilah kawan-kawan kita berdoa banyak-banyak beribu-ribu lemon ok.

اللَّهُمَّ انْفَعْنِي بِمَا عَلَّمْتَنِي وَ عَلِّمْنِي مَا يَنْفَعُنِي وَ زِدْنِي عِلْمًا

Allahumma-infa'nī bimā 'alamtanī wa 'allimnī mā yanfa'unī wa zidnī 'ilmā
O Allah, benefit me from that which You taught me, and teach me that which will benefit me, and increase me in knowledge.

these ten days.

Ibn `Abbas (as) reported that the 
Prophet (sAw) said: "There are no days in which righteous deeds are more beloved to Allah than these ten days." 
The people asked, "Not even jihad for the sake of Allah?" 
He said, "Not even jihad for the sake of Allah, except in the case of a man who went out to fight, giving himself and his wealth up for the cause, and came back with nothing."

May we benefit from these blessed ten days, in sya Allah.

help me God

so true.

Pizza in his pocket

Alright fine this song might be so last year but I just knew it last weekend. Thanks Arny! Cam suka tahap dewa hohoho. Yummy food mentioned in the song, omigosh nak makan nak makan! Haha bukan nak learn the lesson kan. Really made my day =) 

Did you ever hear about the boy

Who ate and ate and ate!
He ate early in the morning
And he ate when it was late.
But he didn’t thank Allah for all the yummy food he had
And he ate so much it made him sick!
Which really made him sad.

He ate dates in
Damascus, which he thought were very nice.
And hot samoosas in
Sumatra, seasoned with a special spice.
He had tacos in
Tijuana with some sauce he got from Spain
And a bowl of fresh bakalava that he bartered in
He said gyros made in
Cairo are a taste that can’t be beat,
And the lemonade in
Yemen made a very special treat.
But the turkey made in
Could still use a pinch of salt.
If you ever visit
Malta, you should
Have a chocolate malt!
He had pizza in his pocket, he had ketchup on his shirt,
And he bought an ice-cream sundae, so he wouldn’t miss dessert.
He had pizza in his pocket, he had ketchup on his shirt,
And he bought an ice-cream sundae, so he wouldn’t miss dessert.
On a bay in the
He ate bon-bons in a bunch.
And then he rushed back
Home so he could make it
Just in time for lunch!

Then one day he saw a little girl, who held her tummy tight,
And he walked over and asked her if everything was alright.
She said she was so hungry and had been hungry for so long,
Then he realized the way he ate was very very wrong.
He looked down at his own tummy and he started feeling pain-
Pain from eating too much food, but he knew not to complain.
So he brought the girl some food, shared it with her family,
Then they thanked Allah for what they had, and then he let them be.

So let’s try to learn a lesson and let’s try to do what’s right.
Eat the food your parents give you without a fuss or fight.
Always be thankful to Allah for all your yummy food,
Share what you have with others, because not sharing is rude.
Being thankful is what’s really great.
Eat the veggies on your plate.
And don’t be like the boy who always ate and ate and ate!

Silver Bean @ Chicago

This is one of my favorite places. (lupakan swiss, pisa, niagara, etc haha). Heh selok tgk bnda silver ni, the shape is like a bean, or doughnut yang belom goreng lagi. I wonder how they built this thing. cam wah menarik sgt. and stereotype "architect sgt macho" cam betol je hahaha.

Oya ckp org obses ngn diri sndiri je suka benda ni sbb what u actually see is yourself. Oh meaning saya obses with myself lah? sbb saya suka bnda ni. like a lot. Cantik oh. You can see the buildings around with perfect blue sky reflected atas bean yg bulat dan licin tu. Comel sgt.

this was actually under the bean, you can see your tiny reflections on the silver wall.

and my last fall here in US slowly fade away. sobs.

off to Atlanta again tomorrow for AlMaghrib class. 
Alhamdulillah for all the blessings (time, great ppl around, money, etc etc etc.)
Everything is just perfect.

Ni youtube feveret saya. all time. dengar da byk kali je macam. ada dua org syeikh yg saya suka sgt2. si hensem Syeikh Hamza Yusuf and sorang lagi mmg saya suspect since first time jumpa, Syeikh Suhaib Webb. Eh ehh notice that both of them are converts, cakap Arab bekebuk kebuk. Diorg converted time college, so I assumed 20 lebeh la kan umurnya. Harapan utk dri sndri - sempat lagi nak blaja arab and cakap bekebuk2 ni. hahaha. Jom amek arab, ok cepat g jumpa ustaz Busyra! Smoga ada berita gembira (busyra) utk saya! Enjoy the vid.

oh oh Suhaib Webb ckp de checked out Quran from public library, baca dlm tandas (sbb cuak ngn parents and he didnt know the rules, yet). Betapalah berminat nak discover Quran tu kan. Kita bagaimana pula? Seriously, kita bagaimana?

Loves. Picture perfect!

a: sume nampak ceria dlm gmbar ni
me: well it runs in my blood u know. the ceria thing.
a: ceh no wonder u're a BME major
me: what?

do you know that theres an art that they called 

heh I still think that straight forward words do better in most cases. kalo nak kata nak, kalo tak nak cakap tak nak. then i'll get it. kalo tak tau senyap sudey jgn byk ckp hik. but hinting? not with me perhaps. art is beauty but this one, I just dont get it haha.
and so many things happened lately, making everything better. yes, better for sure.

btw do you know why Allah calls his servants muflihoon?
muflihoon from the word fallah(farmer)

because they cultivate this dunya to harvest the akhira.

or maybe they are suppose to.
kita bagaimana pula?
