Al Baqarah : 286

Allah does not charge a soul except [with that within] its capacity. It will have [the consequence of] what [good] it has gained, and it will bear [the consequences of] what [evil] it has earned. “Our Lord, do not impose blame upon us if we have forgotten or erred. Our Lord, and lay not upon us a burden like that which You laid upon those before us. Our Lord, and burden us not with that which we have no ability to bear. And pardon us; and forgive us; and have mercy upon us. You are our protector, so give us victory over the disbelieving people.

Revisit Your Connection with Your Wealth

“Do you realize that Allah is the owner of sustenance? Do you realize that Allah is the one who is taking account of every penny that you have? So seek the forgiveness of Allah for where you have faulted for where we have spent our moneys on that which was haram, that which was displeasing to Allah, may Allah forgive us.

May Allah grant us a new beginning. May we be from among those who can reach out to brothers and sisters in need in such a way that when we are in need Allah will automatically reach out to us.” – Ustād Mufti Menk

Riuh di Kepala Pukul Dua Dini Hari

Kadangkala kamu terlalu religius mencintai hal ini dan itu sampai-sampai kamu lupa mencintai Tuhanmu sendiri. Berhentilah sejenak, ambil air wudhu, sholat lalu mengaji. Hidupkanlah hatimu dengan mendengarkan hal-hal yang baik, bersihkanlah hatimu dengan niat-niat ikhlas. Kemudian ingatlah Ibu dan Ayahmu. 

Dan satu hal penting yang jangan sampai kamu lupa; jangan pernah biarkan hatimu mati. 
Karena kalau hatimu sudah mati, kamu selesai.

She and Her Attributes

she was the most orange form of blue

like the color of the setting sky

or the view when the sun rises just above the ocean

her dreams are afloat and alive

real and unending

longing to be satisfied

 

her hair is wavy like the stormy ocean

and as black as the night sky

but she has chosen to cover the ocean and the night sky

with fear for the Lord she always asks forgiveness from

but her thoughts are something

that cannot be covered nor concealed

for they are continous and dauntless 

 

her heart is reserved

for the love of her God

and a few human beings that

never left her prayers

two of whom she was born from

and their mothers and their fathers

and him

 

her hands are always dancing

stiching wounds, applying alcohol

drawing blood from human’s veins

pray, maintain her weight in sujood

longing to touch thing she is yet allowed to touch

she takes care of her hands

so that together they will help the needy

or even helping them now

 

her legs are among her daily prayers

to bring her to good places

even though at days she has a sick toe

her legs always seem able to let her

do things she should do,

going to school to earn the degree,

stop by the places she considered holy

to worship the Owner of all the lands and the oceans

 

she sure has some lackings, 

but she is learning to accept life

and becoming more

of what she is today
