change (again?)

Realised that I’ve been in a long sleep before, I think it is the time to step out, breathe the new air, and keep walking as a new me. Forget the insulted things that ever happened, and turn into a new leaf. Create something, work so much hard, build yourself, and stay positive – life wouldn’t be so difficult after all.

Change, change, and change – countless time of changing, I know. Every day, or after some unfortunate things happened (like low quiz mark, difficulty in answering exam – haha) or when I saw someone who is far more religious and better than me, uncountable times I said to my self, let make some changes, and improvements. It is never too late.

Sometimes, it is bored saying the same thing. But most of the time, it is motivating. Enough for me to live as a better one for one more day.

Desires of changing and keep evolving in term of our soul – nothing wastes on it, right? As long as we doesn’t invited yet by Izrail , the chance for us to improve ourselves is widely open. What we need now is just try our best, set goals on what changes that we want to make, and work on it step by step. If one day, we feel so shattered and everything seems to be failed, then try again. Get up and try again. It is not going to be easy, I can tell. But it pays. It is going to be worth it.

I don’t know what ‘desire’ or what ‘flame’ in this song means, but I found it inspiring! Well, Pink’s song never fail to burn. 

Where there is desire
There is gonna be a flame
Where there is a flame
Someone’s bound to get burned
But just because it burns
Doesn’t mean you’re gonna die
You’ve gotta get up and try try try

[Try- Pink]

It’s a one way trip

Life is a one way trip. It is like getting on a train and it will stop at one station before we ride again for another station. We were given three tickets and once one of them was tore off, we have no way back. The train is moving and keep on moving. No refund, no nothing. We can’t go back and reclaim what we had lost.

While you’re reading this, and when I’m writing this – OUR ticket has one left.The third one. Means that, our pass two tickets is invalid, had been torn off. We have another one ticket to make a different, and that one ticket alone is more powerful than anything. It is a ticket to an eternity world. To the Death and beyond it.

For hearts that doesn’t feel anything, had been froze like a stone – It is never too late to do something.

It is never too late.

Aim of this life is to live. To live a-forever-life in the permanent world – which styles of endless-life we want to live later? It is us that decide.

It is moving ahead, to another station. We are getting closer.

a knock-up

We are merely nothing if we are still in the prison, the old prison that restricts us from move on and get a better, quality life. To be a level upper from the place we are standing now, we have to do some improvements, and keep the consistency. Yes, sometimes we doesn’t understand how fast our life trail move and suddenly, we realize that we are just a step very close to death. Afraid that we doesn’t have good enough ‘presentation’ to The Most Gracious on that time, we must start from now.

There should be a point where we realize that “I should move on”, “I should prepare something”, “I can’t be like this anymore”, and those type of self-knock-up that lead us to a point.

I have some lists that I created long time before, and did consistent with that . But you know, as human’s imaan has its up and down – sometimes (most of the time!) I sink below the wave. The world wave that keep seducing weak peoples like me. Well, I add some more below my old lists just to tell myself that I have to really work hard to be a better one. I’m not forever young. I will die. I don’t want to be a regular person living in this world. I want to be someone different, internally.

Ok, below is the lists. I know nobody will read this (maybe?), but who knows if someone found this, he/she will have some idea of improving themselves? I really hope so.

  1. Deed-check list

A list that you have to face at the end of your day. It is a table, filled with day and date, consist of everything that you wish to do in a day. For example, earlier daily prayers, dhuha, tahajjud, talking good to others, selawat, fasting, al-Mulk before sleep, read a page or two of Al-Quran, find new hadith/ new knowledge, and so on. Paste it down somewhere you often see as a reminder and you just need to honestly tick down the deeds that you had successfully done, and reflect your day. It is motivating, trust me!

2.  Improve your tajweed

Brush up your old-tajweed knowledge by any mean that you comfort with. Here comes in the power of gadget and IT, make a full use of it and own a book to jot down your tajweed lessons. Improve them, you don’t want your kids laugh at you later?

3.  Read new book (whatever book)

4.   Find and memorise new recitation (e.g dua after dhuha prayer)

5.   Make a to-do list every day to maximize your time usage.

Consistency is the policy. Doing step by step our planned self-improvement is like adjusting ourselves to a better place. You can feel that you is closer to yourself. Ever feel that? I don’t know how to explain it literally, but it is a kind of teaching and communicate to your inner self.

You can add-on everything you want, and challenge yourself. There’s no such reason of not having adequate time. You will always have a time for something you really love and care of. Ok, that’s for me. Heh.

Till then. Let us improve ourselves for a better life in the future. Pray!

Cause He knows all
No compromise
Hears your laughs
Feels your cries
He is there all the time

Ramadhan : A Gateway

Bismillah.

Alhamdulillah, we will reach Ramadhan very soon and let us pray for Allah to make our heart alive along the Ramadhan as well as post-Ramadhan. Ramadhan is often to be called as a gateway of changing and improving.On top of that, it really doesn’t work much if the improvement or the changing is fail to be maintained on the following months.However, to change in Ramadhan is really a rahmah and privilege to have rather than being the same without any improvement ; just like our ‘before’.

Pre-Ramadhan

Among the twelve months, Ramadhan is the best month on the planet. We had gone through a lot of hardship, battleship of the nafs and everything that build and destruct ourselves.When it comes to Ramadhan, it is our time to reflect back our deeds. If before this, we performed our prayers in rushing and seldom put our hands together to pray, in Ramadhan, we have to make a move.  If before this we feel that to pray and perform tahajud is such a huge and heavy things to do, this Ramadhan, push your self up. Don’t let yourself being the same as before.Be better!

If we ever feel that in those earlier months before Ramadhan, we were too busy of our business until it is too little time spent for Allah and we felt something like a gap between us and Allah ; this is the right time for us to spend time, improve our deeds and taqarrub with HIM. No time, too? Be creative. It doesn’t need for us to stay sit on our prayer mat in order to perform our ibadah. It is always a chance and thousand ways for those who want to become a better slave of Allah. Shortly, something should be improved by this coming Ramadhan.

Reading time!

What I love most about Ramadhan is that, time is being long. It is not the result of solstice or whatsoever (no such thing in Malaysia)  but it is the result whereby a lot of our routine had reduced. To be particular, it is our eating time! We tend to keep thinking about filling our stomach full and what’s next to be eaten. In Ramadhan, everybody is fasting and we unconsciously have a lot of time.

The time can be used to have a good reading of Al-Quran or anything beneficial to our soul and life. Reduce talking and gossiping, maximising reading and understanding. Read the translation of Al-Quran if we hardly understand the Arabic words of it. Seek the love of Allah and pray and pray.Allah is all-listening and Ramadhan is very a good time to pray. Grab the chance!

Istiqamah doing the change and InsyaAllah, the following months after Ramadhan, you can feel the change. Something is renew and it is Imaan. Retain and build it up by keep continuing the deeds, just like we’re in Ramadhan. What matter most is our understanding about the words and orders of Allah, not about how fast we can finish reading the Al-Quran. If so, we tend to read Al-Quran in rushing way and at last, nothing can be gain or felt. That is a waste for our soul.

A Gateway

It is good for us to keep reminding that Ramadhan is a great gateway for us to be better. Why? Because it is easier,dude! Syaitan had been in prison and we have less enemy alive except ourselves. Fight with our self is indeed a true battleship of Ramadhan and the true winner will be revealed in the following eleven months right after the Ramadhan.

Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said that Paradise is surrounded by hardship and the Hell-fire is surrounded by temptation

So, struggle against ourselves and do things that please Allah, not human being.

Until then, have a soul-changing Ramadhan, fellas 🙂

Ramadhan is a beautiful gateway.
