freedom living in God’s realm

Sharing my final musings in my final months  
in Universiti Putra Malaysia (2006-2016).
Someone asked me: How do you feel after you have converted to Islam? I answered: I feel free. How do you feel after you have been deprived of your rights? I answered: I feel free. How do you feel being thrown into the middle of the ocean? I answered: I feel free. How do you feel being pushed down from a 24 story building? I answered: I feel free. How do you feel when you are left on your own searching for the meaning of life and quest for knowledge? I answered: I feel free. How do you feel being an immigrant? I answered: I feel free.
Then the person said: But why my friend???

Live and Believe

In the name of our Most Merciful,Compassionate God
Positive people attracts us while negative people distracts us,
Positive actions encourages us while negative actions discourages us
Positive aura is inspiring but negative aura is draining
Stay close to the positive ones and avoid the negative ones.
Never let them ‘burn’ our energy, ‘kill’ our enthusiasm
Just be strong, move on with passion and full Trust in God
Keep striving; we will never be deprived of mercy and compassion
As God is the Most Merciful,Most Compassionate,
Seek His touch of love and His touch of mercy,
Believe in what we are doing; believe that God’s Promises are true
Only the believers are those who have survived


Ya Allah...
This is what Love can do...
This is where Faith can bring...

Happiness comes in many beautiful ways…

In the name of our Merciful and Compassionate God
Ladies, let us keep smiling and moving on in love and trust in God
God has love for those who put their trust in Him (Q3:159).
Sharing my musings again….Watching and observing the positive emotional actions of ladies are truly inspiring. They are not high academic degree holders but they are the ones who have high degree of compassion, passion and patience that make them move on in love and trust in God because for them, happiness comes in many beautiful ways...

A home in Jannah.........

This world is not our home.
We are travelers in the wilderness of life
This world is just a guesthouse.
"Our Lord! Let not our hearts deviate (from the truth) after You have guided us, and grant us mercy from You. Truly, You are the Bestower." (Q3:8)

O my Lord, build for my children and me a home in Your presence in Jannat-ul-Firdaus.


leaving the past that hurts with the present that heals

All these while life teaches us lessons; learn to accept the lessons and our greatest disappointment will turn out to be our greatest blessings. It is good to leave the past that hurts with the present that heals. ‘Do not despair of the mercy of Allah’ (Q39:53). Thank you Allah for Your endless blessings.

finding serenity

'Your pain is the breaking of the shell that encloses your understanding. Even as the stone of the fruit must break, that its heart may stand in the sun, so must you know pain. And could you keep your heart in wonder at the daily miracles of your life, your pain would not seem less wondrous than your joy; And you would accept the seasons of your heart, even as you have always accepted the seasons that pass over your fields. And you would watch with serenity through the winters of your grief.'-Kahlil Gibran

In Jordan......

With love from Jordan

The magnificent beauty in the wilderness of the holy land reflects God’s touch of mercy.The inspiring stories of the prophets and the companions kindle the aspiring moments of challenging life’s survival skills in this sacred land...
When our love for God is undigested the light fades; but when our love for God is digested the light shines even in the wilderness of life….

“Be empty of worrying.
Think of who created thought!
Why do you stay in prison
When the door is so wide open?
Escape the poison of your judges.
The sky will bow to your beauty, if you do.
Learn to light the candle. Rise with the sun.
Turn away from the cave of your sleeping.
That way a thorn expands to a rose.
Don't sit and wait. Get out there, feel life. Touch the sun and immerse in the sea.”-Rumi

The Beloved says, "The broken ones are My darlings." So, Be like the sun, have nothing but warmth and light...

Abul-Khayr's poetry

If you do not give up the crowds you won't find your way to Oneness. If you do not drop your self you won't find your true worth. If you do not offer all you have to the Beloved, you will live this life free of that sweet pain which makes it worth living. ~ If you are seeking closeness to the Beloved, love everyone. Whether in their presence or absence, see only their good. If you want to be as clear and refreshing as the breath of the morning breeze, like the sun, have nothing but warmth and light for everyone.

Beautiful metaphorical expressions on having good thoughts

“Almighty God says in a Divine hadith: “I am according to how my servants think of Me.” (Bukhari)…The blessed and intelligent person went on his way, suffered no distress. Due to his fine morals, he thought of good things and imagined good things. Everything was friendly and familiar to him. He did not suffer any difficulty and hardship for he knew the order and followed it. He found it easy. He went on his way freely and in peace and in protection. Then he came across a garden where he observes the lovely flowers and fruits as he acted according to the rule, “look on the good side of everything”. The sensible person is he who acts according to the rule: “Take what is pleasant and clear, and leave what is distressing and turbid”, and goes on his way with tranquillity of heart….Selected phrases from The Words, Risale i Nur.

Hold on to God, He is sufficient for us

In the name of God, the Merciful, the Compassionate. And if anyone puts his trust in God, sufficient is (God) for him. For God will surely accomplish His purpose. Verily for all things has God appointed a due proportion (Q65:3)

Life is a journey where we learn through experience, learning to hold on and learning to let go; but no matter what happens in the running race of life, we must learn to hold on to God as He is our Hope, He is our Strength and most of all He is our True Love….

God's Touch of Mercy...

 Nothing is difficult for God. His command is only, when He wills a thing to be, He says to it "Be!" and it is, (Q36:82)

 Life is beautiful when we Trust that God is in control of everything...

There are times when the going gets tough, never stop, just keep moving with strong Trust in God.

God is in control of everything. We have nothing but His Mercy, we want nothing but His pleasure, we seek nothing but His love.

Intimacy time with Risale i Nur
So, keep moving with efforts and striving to seek His redha in everything that we do  as we hope nothing but His Touch of Mercy... 

Trust in God, He is always with us in running the race of life...He is our Strength, our Hope, our Love.

Nurture a strong hope of God's Mercy...Hope may induce striving and work...and a person will not despair of Divine Mercy- Said Nursi

True Success is from Allah

Allah is our Only Protector and the Only One Who will reward us the supreme success:
“There (on the Day of Resurrection) the (only) protection comes from Allâh the True One.  He is the Best to reward and the Best to give success.”  (Q 18:44).
Trust in Allah as  "... Allâh will not fail in His promise." (Q 13:31).  

Video recording at Rustempasa Madrasa, Istanbul, Turkey
Look at the beautiful side of things,
Allah’s help is actually coming in many beautiful ways..Masha Allah
Keep moving, keep striving with great efforts with Faith, Trust and Belief in God

Nurture a strong hope of God's Mercy...Hope may induce striving and work...and a person will not despair of Divine Mercy- Bediuzzaman
