put down the phone sis

"assalamualaikum sister"
"are you a hafizah?"

"come again sister?"

"you look like a hafizah. are you a hafizah?"
"allahuakbar. no no I'm not." (tersipu malu)
"oh really? because you looked like one."

doors opened.

"oh well. assamualaikum sister" plus the smile. walks out of the train.
"waalailaikumussalam" smiling to myself -.-'

doors closed.

how I was amazed.
not because I was amazed that she thought I was a hafizah, (well of course, that too!) but I was amazed how that sister, who was sitting next to me throughout the 15-minutes-journey in that train whom I didn't even looked at her because I was so busy looking at my phone, reading news I think. she managed to start a conversation that gave a beautiful knock to my heart. how she smiled, how she addressed me and how the conversation was about al-qur'an. it was amazing to experience that moment. no, I am not being dramatic, it's true. because this actually happened almost a year ago, and I can still remember the scene so vividly, so I decided to write about it ;)


attitude that came out from the beauty of iman.

beautiful akhlak.
matinul khuluq.

a result of tarbiyyah.

and have we not claimed we are the people of tarbiyyah?
and yet, what is the result of our tarbiyyah?


a good start for 2015 isn't it?
a reflection, a muhasabah, to what have we changed within ourselves throughout the last 12 months Allah has given us?

knock knock dear iman, how are you?

happy eid, gaza


brothers and sisters of Gaza,
you were granted the highest achievement a Believer can possibly get,
during the month of maghfirah and rahmah.

despite the pain, horrifying explosions and the endless tears.
you are now celebrating eid,
in His Jannah together with all the syuhada loved by Allah.
in the most beautiful way, subhanallah.

and me, still in this ugly world, trying to make myself happy.
I envy you. all off you.
and how I miss you so much, and even thinking of meeting you someday,
bring tears and the feeling of hope and joy.

happy eid, the people of Paradise.
how I pray that I can be amongst you one day.
in shaa Allah :)


happy eid :)
happy getting back to our very own beautiful fitrah.
so pure. so kind. so, obedient, to Allah.
