Real Beauty of a Muslimah.


Assalamu'alaikum w.b.t and salam barakah.

   I just wondering, am I qualified to be a better Muslimah? I have committed so many sins, some because I was bitter with how my life was. I'm so proud of a Muslimah that can be a very good Muslim with the great attitude. Subhanallah ! I just feel ashamed to them. :'(

   Just now, I was read about how a Muslimah who still care about her prayer (Solat) in a very important situation which is she are ready with her make-up and wore her beautiful dress preparing for her wedding party. This story are really happened in Abha, the capital of Asir province in Saudi Arabia. This true story are told by Syakh Abdul Mohsen al-Ahmad.


   Once upon a time, a bride was getting ready for her wedding party.

   After performing Maghrib prayer, she put her make-up, wore her beautiful white dress preparing herself for her wedding party. Then, she heard Azan of Isya' and she realized that she broke her wudu'.

   " Mother, I have to go to make wudu' and I need to do Isya' prayer".

   Her mother was shocked.

   " Are you crazy?! Guest are waiting for you, to see you! What about your make up? It will be all washed away by water!"

   Then she added, " I am your mother and I order you not to perform your prayer now! Wallahi, if you make wudu' now, I will be angry at you!"

   " Wallahi mom, I won't go out from here until I perform my prayer. Mom, you must know that there is no obedience to any creature in disobedience to the Creator."

   " What would our guests say about you when you will show up to your wedding party without make-up? You won't be beautiful in their eyes and they will make fun of you! "

   The daughter asked with a smile, " are you worried because I won't beautiful in the eyes of creations? What about my Creator? I am worried because if I miss my prayer, I won't be beautiful in His eyes".

   She just left her mother and want to make wudu'. She started to make wudu' and all her make-up was washed away but she didn't care.

   Then, she began her prayer and at the moment she bowed down to make sujud, she didn't realize that it will be her last one. Allahu.

   She died while in sujud. What a great ending for a muslimah who are insisted on obeying her Lord !

   Many people who heard her story were so touched. She put Him and His obedience first in her priorities, so He granted her the best ending that any muslim could have. She wanted to be closer to Him, so He took her soul in the place where Muslim are closest to Him. Subhanallah. :') She didn't care if she would be beautiful in the eyes of creatures so she was beautiful in the eyes of her Creator.

   Can you imagine, if we are in her place? What we will do? Allahu Allah.

We Rise From Our Past


Assalamu'alaikum w.b.t.

   Alhamdulillah, we get to live to see another beautiful and harmonious day made by our Creator. Lets make du'a and seek repentance which is one way the mind and the heart will be calm and be peaceful.

   Throughout our life, there will always have the horrible dreams that probably has come true in our life. Sometimes, we don't want to remember it and don't want to face it. Now, lets all just try to forget all the terrible things from the past that happened to us, whether it is from our childhood until the present of our adulthood.

   Many people keep asking " how to forget our past ?" The best answer is just focus on the future and the present. Enjoy all the things that is in front of you, whether you like it or not still you have to go through it. That's what we called it as LIFE. Everyone has been given only the one chance to be a caliph in this world. Try our best to be a better one, to seek for the forgiveness and the merciful. Allah is all loving and generous.

   Anonymous has said " people change as time flies, but memory may remain ". We grow so fast that we didn't flashback at what we do few years back, it may seem that we don't want the memories to haunt us again but there still a good side to this. There is still a little bit of pieces that we can take from our past memories such as all the experience we has through as well as our momentum in life. These two would be considered as the main power to our survival for seeking the real meaning of life. To make the journey of life is always been on the right path.

   We can defined the experience of life as knowledge that we gained from action of our past, which is will remind us of what should we do correctly if maybe something happen twice. We can learn how the best way to cope with the problem and face it with the rational thinking as Allah has given the precious give known as aql'.

   Dearest, every one knows, once we fall our momentum might be declined really bad. Probably really down that we think we don't have the strength to get back up and all hope may seemed lost. Nevertheless, be remembered ! We still have the chances to rise up and set our momentum straight again by gather all our confidence, mentally and physically strength. Pray to Allah to set up our intention straight, ask for His guidance so that we will always in the correct path. Allah is always with us.

   Let us rise and take all the distances memories into experience that may make us cherish. Let us ponder into the future, once we rise, greater things will come to us and only the strong one are willing to take the risk. We should remembered that Allah is near to us. We just need to raise our hand and insyaa Allah, He will help us no matter how the obstacle is. He will show us the way and maybe the easiest way. He just give us the guidance and it's up to us to walk or just let the things like nothing happened BUT there is no reward if there is no effort.

   Dearest friends, just forget all people around you who want to put you down, who just messy up your life as they just wanna see us fallback. They do this because you are the one further step away from victory. Them? just a friction between you and the victory. Allah is always with us and always helped us in whatever condition as the Quran said,

Allah is sufficient for us. [ Quran, 3:173]

   As a caliph, as a human being we are always need Allah in our life. We must always ask for His guidance then, He will show us the right path if we wanted to. Without Him, we may never rise from our fall. He aid us in so many ways that we couldn't thank Him enough.

Which then of the bounties of your Lord will you deny? [Ar-Rahman: 36]
