"manusia tidak dapat mencintai orang lain selagi belum mencintai diri mereka sendiri.. dan mereka tidak akan mencintai diri mereka sendiri sebelum mereka mencintai Tuhan.."

Sedikit Renungan

"Sesiapa mencintai Allah pasti semakin sunyi dengan manusia. Di tengah keramaian dia rasa keseorangan. Saat kesukaan dia berduka. Jika orang tertawa dia menangis. Jasadnya dengan manusia, batinnya kepada Allah"

"Ketenangan dan kebahagiaan adalah hembusan dari langit, diturunkan ke dalam lubuk hati orang yang beriman, mereka akan tetap berhati teguh, di kala insan lain mengalami kegoncangan"

[Syed Qutb]

2013 | I don't know your definition of love

I don't know what your definition of love is,

But what I know is, love is when you are feeling so hard to bid farewell to one another. Giving a hug and your self keep on wondering whether could this be the last hug? After you pretty much grew up in the university together. Shared the worry, the sadness with each other. Celebrating one's birthday and achievement as if it is your own. Will we be able to find this kind of friendship anywhere else..?

For whatever your definition of love is, I am so glad that my understanding of love are as such. Contrary to what most people believe, love, is not at all about your love towards opposite gender, for real love requires years to build. It needs sacrifice. For years I believe that I am not a person who is overly attached to people, but voila, this is me, today, not only attached to people but is attached to moments and memories as well.

As I bid farewell to my university years, I want to understand goodbye just like what Rumi once said,

'Goodbyes are only for those who love with their eyes. Because for those who love with heart and soul, there is no such thing as separation'

2015 | Love is a rizq

That is why I find the story of Prophet Ibraheem (peace be upon him) who was tested to sacrifice his son, and the story of the mother of Prophet Musa (peace be upon him) who was ordered by Allah to allow her son to float downstream of the great Nile river are full of lessons. 

And when he reached with him [the age of] exertion, he said, "O my son, indeed I
have seen in a dream that I [must] sacrifice you, so see what you think." He said, "O my father, do as you are commanded. You will find me, if Allah wills, of the steadfast." (Quran 37:102)

And We inspired to the mother of Moses, "Suckle him; but when you fear for him, cast him into the river and do not fear and do not grieve. Indeed, We will return him to you and will make him [one] of the messengers."(Quran 28:7)

In these two occasions, Allah has taught us that yes, you can love your child, but you have to remember He is the One that you should love first before loving any creations. And what is more amazing is that once you let Allah to be your main focus in life, love will come back to you. It will multiply. Prophet Ismail (peace be upon him)  grew up to be a fine young man, continuing his father's legacy, while Prophet Musa (peace be upon him) did come back to his mother and became a great prophet in history. So never ever think that the sacrifice you make for the sake of Allah is not worth it. Rather, it is far, beyond worth it.

Thus in answering where and how to place this love in our lives, maybe we should just treat it like our medication- we know it heals us with the correct dosage we take but once we have it too much, we know we will kill ourselves.

Hujung minggu layan cerita cinta sikit lah k?! Nice kan?

Back then, masa zaman universiti ramai rakan rakan seperjuangan berusaha menjadi penulis, hampir semua ada blog sendiri. Tapi sekarang agak krik krik.. mungkin masih dalam fasa menyesuaikan diri dengan alam bukan universiti. dan mungkin juga ada medan yang lebih menarik dan mudah untuk menyampaikan dakwah.

Apa pun platform baru yang muncul, i always love blogging :)
