Moslem - A Happy Soul

 Assallamualaikum w.r.t. and Greetings ...


Allaah, The Exalted said: " Say you (0 Muhammad ): "This is my way, I invite unto Allaah (i.e. to the Oneness of Allaah - Islamic Monotheism) (with sure know/edge), land whosoever follows me (also must invite others to Al/ah i.e. the Oneness of Allaah - Islamic Monotheism) with sure knowledge. And Glorified and Exalted is Al/ah (above all they associate as partners with Him), and I am not of the polytheists. " (Al Qur'an 12:108)

 Moslem is a happy soul ... the reason for this is due to two (2) things: 1. The faith (Aqidah) 2. The prayers (Solat)

1. The Faith ie Aqidah

The connection between the creation and the creator in Islam is most beautiful. The creator is God also known as Allah s.w.t..

Allah describe himself in the Quran

Quran Surah 112 Al-Ikhlas (The Unity)..

Say: He, Allah, is One.
Allah is He on Whom all depend.
He begets not, nor is He begotten.
And none is like Him

Everything comes from Allah s.w.t. ..both good and bad things come from Allah s.w.t. 

Quran Al -Anaam 17
 And if Allah touches you with harm, none can remove it but He, and if He touches you with good, then He is Able to do all things.

The reason why moslem is a happy soul :) ..

1. The beautiful bond / connection with God Allah s.w.t.
2. The fear of Allah (Allah s.w.t. is most powerful)

Regarding the bad things that happened,  If we are contented with what Allah give us (redha), everything that happens (good and bad) will turn out to be good things. Refer to Quran Surah At Taubah 59

Quran Surah At Taubah 59

Would that they were contented with what Allâh and His Messenger (SAW) gave them and had said: "Allâh is Sufficient for us. Allâh will give us of His Bounty, and (also) His Messenger (from alms, etc.). We implore Allâh (to enrich us)."
And my personal favourite is :
(1) La Ilaha Ilallah - There is no (other) God except Allah.

(2)Quran Surah Ali Imran :173

Those (i.e. believers) unto whom the people (hypocrites) said, "Verily, the people (pagans) have gathered against you (a great army), therefore, fear them." But it (only) increased them in Faith, and they said: "Allah (Alone) is Sufficient for us, and He is the Best Disposer of affairs (for us)."

** Notes :

** I do not how to express / explain the essence of all the above, However if we master all the above ..we will become strong, confident and achieved peace, tranquility and success .
**However, all these are my personal belief/view and I may make mistake in interpreting the teaching of islam

Tanbihul Ghafilin (reminder for the forgetful)

Assallamualaikum w.r.t. and Greetings

Today is Saturday 24.03.2012 at 22:32 Hr.

My latest observation to date :

1. Everything that happened in our live is not a coincidence.
2. Everything that happened in our live is from Allah s.w.t. (God) and it is a test. We may or may not realize it.

My point is when other people do something unjust/unfair/cruel/etceteras to us .. it is actually a test from Allah s.w.t. (God) to us ..wallahu aklam

Hopefully by knowing that, we know how to handle anything and everything that happened in our live ..

And many times we also become the test for another person(s ). We may or may not realize it ..heehee

NOTE : please note that this article is based on my personal observation and conclusion. I have not checked with the quran or hadith.

The Power Of Thinking

Salam w.r.t. and Greetings.
Just to share a few funny incidents which happened to me which is closely related to the power of thinking... May be ..
5.3.2012 (Monday)
8.30 am was intructed to attend site meeting which i have no idea of (since i am not involved in the project). so i am just replacing my boss who is not available. mood :(
8.45 am - on the way to my car come across a few people and one person make remark that increase my tension from merely tolerable to dizzying full blown tension. The guy said something like "this is bla..bla ..bla .. bosses sending junior officers to attend meeting with top bosses ..bla..bla..bla..".I retorted back that junior officers must be more aggravated being sent to such meeting.
9.00 am - in very dark mood. decide to use a new route to the site. Made a mistake ..drive straight into an express bus depot and all the way to the end of the bus lane. Got stuck in the bus lane since there is an express bus at the end of the lane waiting for passengers to fill up the bus. Now have to reverse driving to exit from the bus lane and eventually the bus depot ...argh.
9.10 am - my new stress (having entered the express bus lane by mistake) made me forget my old stress (having to attend the site meeting which i do not want to and being critised by another person for attending such meeting i.e. being not the right person to attend bla..bla..bla)
9.20am -decide to laugh about my stress and as my mood reverse, everything become better for me. The meeting was fun and i decide to check the project site .. :)
3.00pm - my new tenant called to ask for EOT to pay the deposit and rent .. mmm ..ok laa.
3.30pm - my Hrmis went wrong .. mmm
I am still in good mood.
I just need Coffee or Caffeine ..

My Journey To Islamabad Pakistan 27-31.1.2012

Assallamualaikum w.r.t and greetings dear friends.

I went to Pakistan last January 2012 and to my surprise the country is actually a four season country. I have mistakenly believe that Pakistan weather is like my own country weather .. hot and humid Malaysia. For your information, Malaysia is on the equator and we have a lot of sun and rain.

Above : Look at the trees ... beautiful. Temperature around 14 degrees C.

Above : At Hotel Serena lawn ...beautiful hotel with very tight security. If i remember correctly, you have to pass two checkpoint complete with very fierce looking guards with riffle and bomb detector before you can reach the hotel entrance. Once you reach the hotel, you have to get pass through security check similar to the one you encounter at the airport - the luggage scan and body scan .. and I also have Pakistani special branch officer sleeping outside my room ... whoa .. i never felt this safe in my entire life ...except when doing my tawaf in Makkah of course.

Above : Mr. Babu Ji at Serena Hotel, Islamabad

Above : In Rawalpindi to do some shopping. Rawalpindi is cheaper compared to Islamabad. The water quality here is pretty bad and seems like there is no proper garbage disposal method. However, there is a public transportation .. lorry in myriad of colours .. quite cute actually. So dissapointed i did not manage to take picture with the lorry.

Above : outside the shops (something like a market) selling yards and yards of clothes. Btw .. i am informed that Pakistan produce the finest cotton in the world.

Above : picture taken from inside a car in Islamabad. Btw ..i do not think i can drive here, everyone just drive and honk every few minutes. Hardly anybody use the car signal. I wonder if there is any traffic rules applied here.

Above : I could resist putting up this picture. I think its a very nice picture..location : Islamabad.

In conclusion : Pakistan is a very beautiful country and i am very glad that Allah s.w.t. give me the opportunity to travel to Pakistan ..

Wassallam .. Kopi O Kaw Satu ... :)
