so you think am high maintenance?

well you're wrong.

take the quiz!


Allah swt Maha Mengetahui segala.

trust Allah.


ingat. lupa, jangan.

ada satu doa yang diajak untuk selalu diangkat masa kita di mekah dulu.

"kelilingi aku dan dekatkan aku dengan orang-orang yang soleh & solehah."

tak pernah terfikir pun sebelum tu.
mungkin kurang peduli akan kebenaran bahawa,
individu-individu yang mengelilingi kita turut mempengaruhi dan mencerminkan diri kita juga.

kalau ada yang entah kenapa berasa jauh,
atau tiba-tiba ada yang muncul out of the blue,

percaya pada perancangan Allah.

'cause the chances are,
doa mu dimakbulkan.

*dan semoga diri ini tidak riak dan sentiasa beristiqomah menuju pada-Nya. alah. kan ke kita semua manusia biasa. punya kelebihan dan kekurangan. yang buruk pada mata kasar, belum tentu kotor hatinya. yang elok pada luaran, belum tentu suci isi dalamnya. sama-sama lah kita ingat-mengingatkan. :)

rugged or cute?

quiz time!

just for fun.


here's what i got.

*haish. tak ada kerja la ni. ;p

an old soul i am.

14 Signs You’re An Old Soul

1. You tend to think a lot about everything. You’re always finding deeper meaning in your relationships, simple interactions with strangers, and in the world around you.

2. You enjoy solitude and use it as a time to reflect on your life and everything going on in it. You continually seek out higher understanding and are incredibly introspective about life.

3. You’ve always had maturity far beyond your years. When you were a child people commented on how mature you were and you probably enjoyed sitting at the adult’s table as opposed to the children’s table. It’s not that you couldn’t have fun being a kid, it’s just that sometimes you thought the adult conversations were far more interesting.

4. You take pleasure in simple things like drinking coffee and reading the news, having breakfast with friends, cooking a great meal, or reading a good book.

5. You have a philosophical outlook on life and see the world on a larger scale than most people. When you’re faced with problems you try to see it as a learning experience and consider your struggles as just a part of your overall journey.

6. You don’t put a lot of value on owning expensive, material items. You find you get so much more out of your personal relationships and experiences than from anything you could ever own.

7. You focus on self-actualization and find enjoyment out of self-expression through writing, art, music, or other outlets.

8. You’re sensitive and spiritual in nature. You tend to rely on your gut instinct about things because it’s rarely wrong. You just get “a feeling” about things and can read people well.

9. You feel connected to certain time periods and find yourself more interested in the art, history, or culture from that decade.

10. Even if you have a large social circle full of friends and acquaintances you’ve always felt kind of different than everyone else. You might not call yourself a loner necessarily but you’re definitely comfortable with being alone and understand the difference between being alone and being lonely.

11. Regardless of where you go you seem to be the kind of person strangers feel inclined to talk to. Something about you makes others want to spill their life story within just minutes of meeting you.

12.  You feel a sense of separation from yourself and the “real world” at times.  You recognize there’s the way you think about life in terms of money, possessions, relationships, etc, and then there’s the conventional approach to life most people have. You don’t believe either one is better, just different.

13.  You have a high level of empathy and acceptance towards others and understand the importance of forgiveness. Because of this your friends always go to for advice or to tell you a secret they wouldn’t tell anyone else. They know you’ll listen to them without judgment.

14.  You savor the quiet moments in life that might seem old fashioned to others. Maybe this means going on a Sunday drive in the country or writing a letter (a real letter, not an email) to a friend that lives across the country.

*an old soul with some childish desires, maybe? heh.


don't worry about the past.

'cause you're my present.


pray for gaza.

panjatkan doa.
hulurkan derma.

semoga Allah memberkati usaha kita.


tricks of satan.

Shaytaan will not immediately convince us to commit a major sin, instead he will encourage us to take small steps towards that major sin. It is our job to fight his whispers and our temptations.

Tricks of Satan

Arabic: فَدَلَّهُمَابِغُرُورٍ

Transliteration: Fadallāhumā Bighurūrin

Translation: So he made them fall, through deception.

As-Salaamu Alaikum Quran Weekly,

The twenty-second ayah of Surah al-Ar’af is a long one, but in this brief reminder, I want to share with you the first part of the expression that’s used in it, that has just an incredible amount of wisdom in it for life.

In our dealings with shaytaan, Allah azza wa ja’l is describing how shaytaan got our parents, Adam and Hawwa (salamun alayhima), to make the mistake that they made. What was his strategy to get them to listen to him? Not just what he said to them, we all know that he whispered to them, we all know that he offered them eternity and that they could stay in Jannah. We know that, but how did he do it? What method did he use? That method is important to understand, and its captured in the first expression of the ayah, فَدَلَّهُمَابِغُرُورٍ (Fadallāhumā Bighurūrin). He, دَلُّ is used when you draw a bucket, like دَلو in Arabic is a bucket, and ادَّلَ is to drop a bucket down and pull it right back up. You know in the old times there’s a well and you kind of crank of up the water? You know, and you pull the bucket back up, this is ادَّلَ. But دَلُّ is to slowly lower the bucket, or to put a bucket, you know, for a very primitive way of hunting an animal. You have some food, like a carrot or something, you put it inside the bucket and its tied to a rope, and the animal comes and you sort of pull it little, by little, by little towards yourself, and the animal follows it. This is actually called دَلَّ. Like literally, shaytaan didn’t go out and say, “disobey Allah!” He offered it, just a small little bit of compromise, and they listened.

And then he offered just a little bit more. “It’s harmless, what I’m saying isn’t haram, I’m just saying, take it a little bit easy, you know? “You don’t have to eat from this tree,” (as in the case of our parents), “I’m not saying you should eat from the tree, I’m just saying at least check it out. It’s a beautiful tree, there’s no harm in looking at it, is there?”

Now look, Allah’s commandment was وَلَاتَقْرَبَاهَذِهِ الشَجَرَةَ (Wa Lā Taqrabā Hadhihi Ash-Shajarata), don’t go near this tree. So the first thing he says, “look, at least you’re not touching it, okay? At least you’re not touching it. Just go near it, what’s the big deal?” And when they go near, “You know what, it’s not like you’re not supposed to climb it, you’re just not supposed to eat from it. Just have a little climb, it’s not big deal.” It’s not just one time دَلَّ also suggests that these suggestions came a day, then another day, then another day, like this was a process for this guy. It wasn’t like he whispered to Adam alayhi as-salam and immediately he went and he ate from the tree, there’s actually an entire, strategic, little, by little, by little winning over the argument that he’s doing.

فَدَلَّهُمَابِغُرُورٍ (Fadallāhumā Bighurūrin) and that’s what he does to us to this day. This is the reason its mentioned in the Quran. That he drew them out using بِغُرُورٍ (bighururin) I didn’t translate, using deception. This is a kind of deception. In other words, there are things that are clearly wrong. You and I know that, there are things that are clearly, clearly wrong. But there are a lot of small, not as clearly wrong steps that are there that you should have the sense to know that if I take this one tiny step, tomorrow I’ll be taking another tiny step, and then another, and then another, and before I know it, I’ll end up in the wrong. So you have to put protective measures in place. And when you put those protective measures in place, it keeps you from falling into trouble. Now shaytaan comes, and he doesn’t attack, or he doesn’t tell you to make the haram into the halal. That’s too direct, and the Muslim will say, “No, it’s obviously haram, I’m not going to do that.” He comes and he says, “Listen, this one little step I’m asking you to take, it’s clearly not haram, that’s not wrong, you can do that much at least, there’s nobody that can blame you for that.” Then people come and say to the scholar, to the alim, to the da’ee, to the khateeb, “Hey, so I know that doing, you know, drinking is wrong, but can I hang out with friends who drink? I’m not going to the bar or anything, but they sometimes drink in my office, can I just be with them? You know, because you know, they’re my friends. Can I at least do that? Is it absolutely haram for me to do that?” And the scholar will say something like, “I advise you not to do that, it’s not a good idea, it’s bad company.”

“But is it haram? Is it absolutely haram?” And they say, “Well I don’t know if I can say it’s absolutely.”

“Okay thanks, I got my answer. It’s not absolutely haram, which means I can do it.”

And that’s how shaytaan gets you to first hang out with them. Then they’ll say, “Hey, we’re going to the bar, want to come along?” Then you go to the bar and you’re just having a coke or whatever, and they’re drinking their beer. Eventually one late night, it’s just a little bit of a, “can you just slip some in?” You know? Somebody gave it to you, or they slipped it into your drink, and you didn’t realize it, and you’re like, “Well I didn’t intend to do it.” It’s just one thing after another, after another, after another subhanAllah.

This is فَدَلَّهُمَابِغُرُورٍ (Fadallāhumā Bighurūri), this is the same surah in which Allah mentions the story of Barsisa, who went little, by little, by little into sin, you know, this is not the occasion to tell you that story, but the point is the same. Shaytaan will not come at you directly calling you to do the wrong thing. Shaytaan will come at you to try to just compromise, or just get on the road to the wrong. And by the way, when you’re on that road, until you do the wrong, nobody can come out and directly tell you, “Listen, by the way, this is wrong what you’re doing.” Because it’s not wrong, it’s on the road to it. If you don’t recognize that you’re being pulled slowly, but surely towards it, then you only have yourself to blame. This is why Allah’s commandment to Adam alayhi as-salam wasn’t just don’t eat from this tree, the advice was don’t go near it. There’s a big difference between those two things, and so you and I have to recognize that there are somethings that are clearly haram, but there’s a road that leads to them. We have to watch out and not go on that track that shaytaan is trying to reel us into.
