Wek… wek… wek (the duck character)


Who is your Lord?

Wek…wek…wek

My Lord is Allah

 

Who is your Prophet?

Wek…wek…wek

My prophet is Muhammad (SAW)

 

So, you’re Muslim, correct?

Wek…wek..wek

Yes, I’m.

 

Why do you choose Islam as your religion?

Wek…wek…wek

Because my parents are Muslims,

And so were my forefather.

 

Do you perform prayers every day?

Wek…wek…wek

Yes, I do.

Why do you perform prayers?

Wek…wek…wek

Because I saw my parents always do prayers.

 

Do you know your purpose in this life?

Wek…wek…wek

I don’t know. I only do what my parents and my forefather did in their lives.

 

Do you read Qur’an?

Wek…wek…wek

I do, but I don’t know what Qur’an said. I read it, I memorized it, but I don’t feel that Qur’an as my guidance.

 

Oh, I see. By the way, why you always say “wek…wek…wek”  before answered my questions?

Wek…wek…wek

I don’t know too, may be it is my habits in answering the questions. LOL! Sorry for that!

 

LOL! Oh, okay…okay! May I share you something, my friend?

Wek…wek…wek,

Sure you may, please do share!

 

Thank you so much! Firstly, I hope I don’t follow your habits, he…he in answering the questions.

Brother! I’m  your brother in one faith. I have to remind you to find your purpose in this life. Please read again about the process of human creation surah al-‘alaq verse 2, “Created man from a clinging substance.” We can find about the process of human in other surah. Then learn what Allah said in surah Adh-Dhariyat verse 56, “And I did not create jinn and mankind except to worship Me,” about our tasks in this world, then please read a lot about the hereafter such as Surah Al-Qiyamah, An-Nabaa and so on! From those verses, you’ll get the meaning of your life, your task and the reason why you’re Muslim.

 Don’t be like a duck! I’m sure you know what I meant!

Insha’Allah, yes I do know. Jazakallah my brother, you’ve given me the light!

 

Alhamdulillah, I’m so glad you didn’t say “wek…wek…wek” again. It means you just removed your “duck” character, right? I did it, because I really love you, Brother! We’ve to advise each other.

Alhamdulillah!

I love you too, Brother!

Wek…wek…wek…. sorry, just kidding!   😀

Be like a Mirror!


السلام   عليكم  ورحمة  الله  وبركاته

Be like a mirror!
Be like a mirror!

 

My mirror always corrects me every day.
Sometimes it says, “Look, there is a pimple on your face!”
“Your hair isn’t neat!” (I’m still confused about the word “hair”  is it singular or plural? Would you like to explain about it? I found it’s a collective noun and in other cases is not a collective noun.)
“There is mucus in your nostril.”     😀
“Your teeth are yellow, clean them please!”       😀
And I’m not mad at my mirror. I’ll ask (him) more about what his corrections, and do what he suggested. He…he.
I’ll comb my hair, I’ll clean my nose and brush my teeth. And say thanks to him.

“Be like a mirror! Be like a mirror! Be like a mirror!” I often hear this advice. Why I should be like a mirror? I asked to myself. When I found the functions of mirror, I understand well, a mirror always advises me smoothly, politely, and tells the truth without hurts my hearts. “Oh, well done, Mr.Mirror! You’re great!” 🙂
Many of people (including I) will be offended when they receive the correction from others, because they (except you, my lovely friends) don’t like to be corrected. But, in Islam we must correct ourselves and do advise others as Allah said in surah Al-Ashr;
By time (1) Indeed, mankind is in loss (2) Except for those who have believed and done righteous deeds and advised each other to truth and advised each other to patience.(3)

I ask to myself, “Can I be like (him)?”
It’d be nice if I can advise myself and others such as a Mirror!

I Don’t Want To Live Like a Candle


السلام  عليكم  ورحمة  الله  وبركاته

بارك  الله  فيكم

When I got the ideas for my writing especially about Islam precept, I always think, can I do this message? Can I advise myself before other? Can I get benefit from my post? Can I say the truth to myself?
I don’t want to blame other, and advise others directly. I should advise myself first. I will not guide other before I could guide myself. For what I order other to do this, to do that, but I forget myself.
For example, I will not talk about patience, because I’m impatient. I will not share my thoughts about “Anger” because I can’t control my anger well (I’m struggling to be a patient person and to be a muslimah who can control the anger well). I also will not share about marriage, because I can’t give good example from mine. If I have to post about these topics, I usually ask my friends thoughts and will take from other references that suitable with the topics, without putting my mind.

I still remember these verses:

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِيْنَ ءَامَنُوْا لِمَ تَقُوْلُوْنَ مَالَا تَفْعَلُوْنَ. كَبُرَ مَقْتًا عِنْدَ  الله  أَنْ  تَقُوْلُوْا  مَا لَا  تَفْعَلُوْنَ

O you who have believed, why do you say what you do not do? (2) Great is hatred in the sight of Allah that you say what you do not do? (3)
[As-Saff : 2-3]

It lighted surround, but it burns itself.
I lighted surround, but it burns itself.

In other words, I want to say that I don’t want to live like a candle. A candle with its light can light surround, but look it burns itself. A man who always guide others to Islam well, to establish prayer, to pay zakat, to do shaum in Ramadhan, to give shodaqoh and do good deeds, but he forgets himself, so he doesn’t get any benefits from his words, he can’t light himself. He is likes a candle.
I hope I can lighted myself, my family and this Ummah. Ameen!

Nails in the Fence

Nails in the Fence.
Nails in the Fence.

There once was a little boy who had a bad temper. His father gave him a bag of nails and told him that every time he lost his temper, he must hammer a nail into the back of the fence.

The first day, the boy had driven 37 nails into the fence. Over the next few weeks, as he learned to control his anger, the number of nails hammered daily gradually dwindled down. He discovered it was easier to hold his temper than to drive those nails into the fence.

Finally the day came when the boy didn’t lose his temper at all, he told to his father about it and the father suggested that the boy now pull out one nail for each day that he was able to hold his temper. The days passed and the young boy was finnaly able to tell his father that all the nails were gone.

The father took his son by the hand and led him to the fence. He said, “You have done well, my son, but look at the holes in the fence. The fence will never be the same. When you say things in anger, they leave a scar just like this one.

You can put a knife in a man and draw it out. It won’t matter how many times you say “I’m sorry, the wound is still there.”
The little boy then understand how powerful his words were. He looked up at his father and said, “I hope you can forgive me father for the holes I put in you.”
“Of course I can,” said the father.

Please see my other post about “How to Control Our Anger.”

I’d say to you my lovely friends (brothers n sisters) “I hope you can forgive me for the holes I put in you.”

Jazakumullah khoir  for everything !
