The Importance of good companionship..~

The Tree and The Flower

Choosing and having good companions is extremely important for many reasons and from many aspects.

1. Mankind cannot live alone; every individual must live and interact with others, and when interacting with others one either influences or is himself influenced.

2. Those people whom you sit with and make your friends are inevitably going to fall into one of two categories. They will either be good individuals - who guide and encourage you towards what is good and help you to accomplish that which Allaah has ordered, or they are going to be bad - encouraging you to do what is pleasing to Satan, that which misleads you, and leads you to the Hell-Fire.

3. When the Prophet was sent with the mission to establish Islam, he did not do it on his own. Rather, Allaah chose for him companions who accompanied him and who carried the Message until it was complete.

These three aspects show the importance of having good companions, companions who are righteous. Such a companion will help you to do what is good and remind you of Allaah, he will enjoin what is good and forbid what is evil. These aspects also show the importance of avoiding befriending bad companions, because such a companion will have a bad effect upon you, they help you to do those deeds which are displeasing to Allaah and which lead to the Hell-Fire.

The Prophet gave a good similitude regarding this. He said: "The case of the good companion and the bad companion is like that of the seller of musk and the blower of the bellows (iron-smith). As for the seller of musk, he will either give you some of the musk, or you will purchase some from him, or at least you will come away having experienced its good smell. Whereas the blower of the bellows will either burn your clothing, or at least you will come away having experienced its repugnant smell." [Al-Bukhaari and Muslim]

The Prophet explained the matter of good companionship, so that no room is left for doubt or confusion, when he said: "A person is upon the religion of his close friend, so beware whom you befriend." [Abu Daawood and At-Tirmithi]

This means that a person will be upon the same methodology as his friend, the same path as his friend, the same nature, manner and behavior as his friend. So we must be careful whom we befriend. There is an Arabic saying: 'Your companion is what pulls you to something.' So if your companion is good, he will pull you towards that which is good. He will order us with what is good and forbid us from what is evil. If he observes us committing sins he would warn us, if he becomes aware of our shortcomings he would advise us, and if he finds a fault in us he would cover it and not disclose it to others. About this, the Prophet said: “…Whoever conceals (the fault of) a Muslim, Allaah will conceal his fault on the day of Judgment.” [Abu Daawood]

So should you see a fault in your brother, you should wish to remove that fault from him and not expose it to the people. This is what is required by brotherhood and again stresses the importance of choosing friends who are upon the correct way, who are loyal, and who hide your faults whilst ordering you with good and forbidding you from evil, who stand beside you and support you, and co-operate with you upon all that is good.

This principle is important from the standpoint of how the religion is to be established, and from the standpoint of what brotherhood is and what it does. Indeed, the reason that one takes a companion is to help him establish Islam, and to help him worship Allaah. We find a good example in the Prophet Moosaa the one whom Allaah chose and spoke to. When Allaah sent him to Pharaoh, he (Moosaa) said as Allaah informs us saying (what means): "And appoint for me a helper from my family, Haaroon - my brother; increase my strength with him, and let him share my task (of conveying Allaah's Message and Prophethood), that we may glorify You much and remember You much." [Quran; 20: 29-34]

Moosaa wanted his brother to support him and help him, protect him and accompany him. This is exactly what the believers do for one another. For the thing that binds the believers together and makes them brothers is the bond of faith. The Prophet said: "There are three characteristics; whoever has them will taste the sweetness of faith: That Allaah and His Messenger are more beloved to him than all else, that he loves a person and does not love him except for the sake of Allaah, and that he would hate to revert to unbelief just as he would hate to be thrown into the Fire." [Al-Bukhaari and Muslim]

Thus the connection between the believers is based upon faith and sincere brotherhood. Beware against taking any companion if such companionship is based upon other than this, for if you were to do that you would then bite your hands in grief. Just as the unjust ones will bite their hands in grief. Allaah Says (what means): "And (remember) the Day when the wrong-doer (oppressor, polytheist etc.) will bite at his hand, he will say: ‘Oh! Would that I had taken a path with the Messenger. Ah! Woe to me! Would that I had never taken so-and-so as a friend! He indeed led me astray from the Reminder (the Quran) after it had come to me….’" [Quran; 25:27]

And Allaah Says (what means): "And whosoever turns away from the remembrance of the Most Beneficent (Allaah), We appoint for him Satan to be a Qareen (intimate companion) to him." [Quran; 43:36]

So all of the physical togetherness that you see around you, which is based upon other than faith will be wiped away on that Day, and it will be a source of misery and torture for them. Allaah Says (what means): “Friends on that Day will be foes one to another except the pious." [Quran; 43:67]

Grow Our Own Way..~

Whenever we’re in doubt..
We’re always face down..
I’m not sure,
I guess so..

We don’t have to,
shouldn’t do that..
Because we have to face up..
Look forward..
I’m not sure,
I guess so..

I know you’ve cried a lot..
I’m sorry for making things become worse..
You need some rest..
That’s the only..
I’m not sure..
I guess so..

I know you’ve shared everything..
I’m sorry for not being understanding..
You need some rest..
Stop by and release..
I’m not sure..

Face up, look forward..
I think this world is so big for you..
To wander around..
Does it ever say that you’re so boring?
I don’t think so..
Go ahead..
If your success is there..
You’re just near to it..
Just because you’ve that reason..
It’s your right..
We’ll make our own way..

~ Fly..up..up..and Away ~

Raise our hands and pray…Allah…

Good to know..~

It's good to know..
I was down at first..
Walk away..
Sit for a while..
Thinking..solving some puzzles..
Get some light meal..
Having a chat..
On the way back..
She greet me "Assalamualaikum..."..
I was startled..
A stranger..
Walked by..
Even she's not Malay, of course..Arab..
With veil..-ehem-
Yes, she did make me smile so soon..

Another 'she'..
A stranger..
Very soft..
In deed, I love those who are soft talker..
Talk with soft voice..
With soft words..
Not sweet talker, of course..
I do respect them..
Yes, they do make me respect them..

I sat somewhere with my sister..
A mother..
She put her baby girl just next to me..
She went for ablution..
This girl..very cute.. :)
It's hard to win her, seriously..
But I did..-haha-
Yes I did..
She fears me no more..
I can say, we're good friends..-ooops, my sister got jealous-

I hope not..
Hope so..

Still hope not..
Hope so..
Can I say sorry?
I'm sorry..
I'm so sorry..
Hope you accept that sorry..


Change dream into hope..
So that..
At least, that hope makes us move/act accordingly..
We're Muslims..

3 people that can ensure our rise and fall..
1) Those who are always appreciate opportunity to rise (being critical).
2) Those who are just sit, wait, and see.
3) Those who are among us who will ensure that we're at the bottom (backstab).

Where are we (among those)?

Now, we're on the right track..
The platform to reach real world..
Reality no more fantasy..
Yes, that's us..
With knowledge..
Others' hope..
To become leaders..

Knowledge + Trust + Quality = Our RISE as the whole community..
For our ummah..
Make 'em as salient as possible, dear.. :)

I may be not a good, or strong, or perfect one..But I HOPE I can contribute something for myself yet for my religion..

~ insyaAllah ~

Years back..
I'm totally different..

Years back..
I used to have somebody..
I'm happy..
We're far away..
But, I don't know that he was not that happy..
He's gone..
Perhaps I was not able to take care of him..

Years back..
I used to be a 'teddy' girl..
I'm happy..
But, I don't know that I would be warded..
'Teddy''s gone..
Perhaps that's why I dislike teddy2 things now..

Years back..
I used to wear the blue-ish army uniform..
I'm happy..
But, I don't know that it's just for 3 months..
They're gone..
Perhaps I lost them..

Years back..
I used to sleep on greens..
My TV was the sky..
So close that I feel like want to pluck one..
But, I don't know that they'd be so far..
They're there but can't be reached anymore..
TV's gone..
Perhaps the once does not really means forever..

Years back..
I used to make mistakes..
Over and over again..
Out of anger..
Out of loneliness..
Out of sadness..
But, I don't know that I would be unhappy..
My past gone..
Perhaps I was immature and being so emotional (irrational and sensitive)..

I used to make mistakes..
Over and over again..
But, not out of those..
I may seemed so slow..
But actually I need time..
To think..
To recover..
To put things in the right place..
To give myself a chance..
To be more stronger than before..
Perhaps experience taught me a lot..

I realized that..
I'm a lil girl..
Carrying big dreams..
Walk on the small path..
It could be anytime that I can easily be slipped down..
My right arm will always hold the string..
Dragging the left to pull me out..
of this deep sadness....
Perhaps there's hikmah..

P/s: Perhaps some magic incantation, prayer, or altered state of consciousness will do the trick.- Leonard Blank -

The Art will continue..~

Art is just normally being left for what it is..
Although it is plain with black lines on the whites..
It remains as art..
Only the owner knows it's symbolic..

Many agree that..
If the plain is filled with colours,
then it would be more meaningful..
No comment..
There are thousands of people in this world..
With own thoughts..
Only the owner knows it's symbolic..

Who says that life can't be potrayed?
How many's is hanging out there?
It is Art..
Always being left for what it is..
It is believed that..
Filled with no colour..
Filled with colour..
Is more meaningful..
Only the owner knows it's symbolic..

Admit that Art is always being left..
With blacks lines on the whites..
Only you know it's symbolic..

~ No matter what, the Art will always continue ~

Those things of CPR and Choking Treatment (individual practical)..

With all hopes and shines..
I'll be stronger..
again and again..
Try my best to get up..
With them by my side..
A present from Him..
Can't and never be replaced..
The presence never allow me to go down,
Not even once..

Thank you, Allah..
For the most valuable gift..

The door is still open..
I'll go and get the sun,
so that I can use the light..
To torch my path..

~ insyaAllah ~

Little hope..
From a little servant..

P/s: I must be there..

Tears..please stop...~

I've promised to myself..Whatever happened, I'll be smiling..Let me cry when it's just needed..But again and again, I keep failing..Tears always crawling down..Is it because of it wants to fall down, or me myself has been so sensitive..?

I'm confused..Before I'm able to be in the middle..I made it..But now, I'm confused..If I say it, angry would probably be the drive to the unexpected decision..If I don't, it's me, who will suffer..While others are happy..Because they win the game....
- I'm so confused -

Now that the decision has been made..I lost..Out of honesty.. T_T Up till now, I still believe that this is just a misunderstanding..

I should stop crying..It's me who decide this to happen from the beginning..Abah said, if somebody rejects you from being his/her friend..Just go ahead with your current fellow friends..There are many out there who wants to be your friend though..
Remember..I may lose one, but many will come...Just have faith in Him..
- yaqeen -

I remember Allah's promise..Test is not meant for nothing..Sometimes we like something so much, but we don't know that it will bring harm to us..Sometimes we dislike something so much, but we don't know that it will benefit us..
- again, Al-Baqarah -

~ I love myself.. ~

This is just temporary..~

March 8, 2010 14:12

It’s getting harder here..
Hard to be described..
Everything comes suddenly..
My mistake..
Fail to plan..
Plan to fail, right?
And I do deserve this..
But before that..
I should give a chance for myself..
A chance to have a glance..
At all things from all angels..
Fix them if possible..-should be possible-

Oh, Allah..
This is a test..
I won’t complain..
This is not easy..
Only hoping there will be sweetness (at least),
inside there..
Waiting for me..

Al-Baqarah: 284 - 286

I'll be strong..

~ Thank you, Allah, for sending me someone that can really makes me smile always ~

Carilah Aku..~

March 2, 2010 (around 7.15 am)

I was in car..When I heard about Ustaz Zawawi through 2..

Diceritakan bahawa Nabi Muhammad s.a.w meletakkan kepala baginda di atas riba Aisyah lalu terlena. Ketika itu Aisyah merenung wajah baginda dengan penuh kasih sayang. Timbul di fikiran Aisyah, berfikir, terlalu ramai wanita di dunia ini, Nabi Muhammad s.a.w memilihnya. Seorang Nabi yang dipilih Allah s.w.t di atas muka bumi untuk memimpin umat manusia, Nabi terakhir, Nabi teragung di kalangan para Nabi, memilih Aisyah seorang wanita biasa, mengahwininya ketika berumur 9 tahun, merupakan isteri tercantik dan termuda, serta terakhir. Serentak itu juga Aisyah berasa bersyukur yang teramat dikurniakan Allah Nabi Muhammad s.a.w sebagai suaminya dan berasa bangga dapat menjadi seorang isteri kepada seorang Nabi. Itulah takdir Allah yang indah buat dirinya.

Tetapi ada sesuatu yang mengganggu fikiran Aisyah. Di dunia, dia dan Nabi hidup sebagai suami isteri. Berkasih sayang. Beribadat bersama. Berbincang bersama. Beriadah bersama. Sekiranya berjauhan, pasti saling mengingati. Aisyah bimbang, apakah di akhirat kelak, dia dan Nabi akan bersama-sama seperti di dunia atau berpisah sepertimana yang terjadi kepada Nabi Nuh, Nabi Lut, dan Firaun. Mereke beristeri tetapi Nabi Nuh dan Nabi Lut dijanjikan syurga sedang isteri-isteri mereka di neraka manakala Firaun ditempatkan di neraka tetapi Asiah di syurga.

Aisyah bimbang di akhirat kelak, dirinya dan Nabi terpisah. Apakah Nabi masih mengingatinya nanti dan mengakui bahawa dia adalah isterinya? Sebagai seorang Muslim, kebimbangan Aisyah disertakan dengan harapan hanya Allah yang tahu. Andai diikut rasa bimbang sahaja, dikhuatiri akan menjadi seorang yang pasif. Begitu juga andai diturut pengharapan yang tinggi sahaja, barangkali akan menjadi seorang yang terlalu berkeyakinan sehingga mengabaikan sama ada “pasti” atau “tidak pasti”. Walaupun nama Aisyah sudah tercatat dalam senarai isteri-isteri Nabi yang bakal mencium bau syurga, Aisyah masih khuatir. Oleh sebab itu, Aisyah memilih untuk menjadi seorang yang optimis – bimbang dan pada masa yang sama berdoa (berharap pada Allah) -.

Tanpa disedari, air mata Aisyah menitis atas pipi baginda. Terjaga Nabi dari lena dan bertanya kepada Aisyah, “Wahai Aisyah, kenapa kamu menangis?”. Mendengarkan rintihan Aisyah tentang kerisauan di akhirat kelak, Nabi lalu berkata, “Carilah aku di tiga tempat. Pertama, di tempat timbangnya amalan. Kedua, di tempat pemberian buku amal. Dan ketiga, di Siratul Mustaqim.”.

Kebiasaannya di 3 tempat yang disebutkan Nabi tadi adalah ketika di mana kebanyakan umat manusia hanya memikirkan tentang diri sendiri. Masing-masing lupa kepada kedua ibu bapa, suami, isteri, abang, kakak, adik-adik, anak-anak, saudara-mara, sahabat handai, rakan-rakan dan sebagainya. DAN Nabi akan berada di 3 tempat ini untuk memberi syafaat kepada umat manusia yang beriman kepada kalimah “Lailahaillallah Muhammadurrasulullah”.

~ asking myself, can/will I be like Aisyah Humaira’? ~

That’s the simplest story on the calm and cold morning….
