A repetition of old scores..

I believe-
that we don't have to change friends if we understand that friends change.

I believe-
that we are responsible for our actions, no matter how we justify it.

I believe-
that maturity has more to do with what types of experiences you've had and what you've learned from them and less to do with how many birthdays you've celebrated.

I believe-
that credentials on the wall do not make you a decent human being.

I believe-
that everyone deserves a chance to be better in every way they can be..

I believe in everything that is right.

A public proclamation!

They say best friends are forever. For a long time, I believed them.
But now, sisters (and brothers) in faith trumps everything else.

Because they are the ones who helped me be the person I am today.

I am a Muslim.
My Islam is not just on paper, it is my way of life.

Finding forgiveness

And those who, having done something to be ashamed of, or wronged their own souls, earnestly bring Allah to mind, and ask for forgiveness for their sins,- and who can forgive sins except Allah.- and are never obstinate in persisting knowingly in (the wrong) they have done.

(Ali-imran:153)

Say: “O my Servants who have transgressed against their souls! Despair not of the Mercy of Allah. for Allah forgives all sins: for He is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.

(Az-zumar:53)

Menyucikan harta

Kadang-kadang pertolongan Allah itu datang dengan tidak disangka-sangka. Saat diri terasa sesak dengan kesempitan wang perbelanjaan, didatangkan rezeki bagai terasa seperti seguni emas dari syurga.

Tapi mengapa bila disuruh menginfakkan harta di jalan Allah, wujud satu tarikan maha hebat dalam hati ini? Seperti ada rantai-rantai besi yang mengikat hati dari memberi dengan setulus-tulus kerelaan. Keikhlasan yang begitu mudah diperkatakan menjadi sesuatu yang terlalu asing pada ketika diberi kebebasan untuk menyucikan diri dengan melepaskan harta-harta duniawi yang mengikat jiwa daripada merasa kebergantungan yang sebenar kepada Allah Yang Maha Pemurah.

Wahai hati, di mana pergi iman yang kau pegang?
Wahai hati, di mana kekuatan yang sebelum ni dibangga-banggakan?
Wahai hati, di mana kesucian yang selama ini membaluti?

[39:52] Do they not know that Allah extends provision for whom He wills and restricts it? Indeed in that are signs for people who believe.

Blergh~

I think I'm in twilight zone.

I seek strength from you, O Allah.
