Reclaim your heart by Yasmin Mogahed

I was in tears. Can't help myself. Crying.

"I hate this place, why are these people behaving like this"

"I wanna go home"

Eventually I cry myself to sleep. I'm not saying sleeping can ease the pain. NO! but it helps. so I slept for awhile hoping this hurt will go away.

I can't remember how many hours I slept but later i decided to wake up and face the reality.

I cannot behaving like this. This is not human. I remembered, in 2011, someone dear to me told me this.

"Orang Islam kena kuat"

I nodded and tried my very best to put myself together.

I begin with folding all the clothes and put it in the closet. unpack my stuff then I saw something, a book that I bought last week at Kino, KLCC along with cinta hati. I've heard about the book and been wanting to buy it, so the very first time i saw the book, I got excited but unexpectedly, the book is thin and quite expensive. lucky me I still have baucar buku, then i decided to buy the book, thanks to the voucher. the book at Kino is RM104 ++. I really can't remember.

Then I stop doing everything I'm doing, I took the book, and open it. It suits the title. It reclaim the heart. I was in tears also but this time not because I was upset. its different.

The first chapter of the book is called "Why do people have to leave each other?" It was actually a dream by the author asking the same question. I cried reading the conclusion of the chapter: " ultimately the question was about the nature of the dunya as a place of fleeting moments and temporary attachments. as a place where people are with you today and leave or die tomorrow...

I remembered crying the whole time reading this book. it brought tears in my eyes on how wonderful, almost perfect choice of words used by the author. But I know it is Allah that helped the writer to write and it is Allah still, that bring this book to me.

I even wrote to the writer how happy I am having her book.

I'm suggesting each of you guys to have this book. I've placed this book at 'that place' so that when I'm lost or feeling alone, I could open this book up and know that I'm not alone, Allah is with me.

If anyone would like to purchase this book. kindly email me at only at the cost of RM90. Thank you :D

Highly recommended.

For a gift. For a wedding. For a friend. For sisters and brothers. For mothers and fathers. for yourself. for wives and husbands.

Happy reading!

Have a nice day everyone. B safe wherever you go.

Everyone wants a perfect ending. But over the years I've learned that some of the best poems don't rhyme and many great stories don't have a clear beginning, middle or end. Life is about not knowing, embracing change and taking a moment and making the best of it without knowing what's going to happen next.

tears after tears.
I wonder if I ever be able to stay strong.
you have eaten me out.
with your words
and your actions.

I'm no perfect. I make mistakes. and so do you.
I'm here to learn.
to be better.
and not sour.
I forget how to smile.
I live in fear.
and I'm not happy.

But Allah loves me dearly. He surrounds me with loved ones.
the ones I've always wanted to be with - much more.
the family, the cats and fishes, the friends and also kekaseh hati.

But all I'm asking dear Lord, make me stronger each passing days.
make me survive these 2 years, insyaAllah.
and most importantly, be with me, each steps I'm taking.

and I know You are with me, always.

The Land Down Under

Di sudut hati kecil ku
tipu kalau aku kata aku tidak rindu
pada tempat itu
yang banyak mengajar aku tentang bangun jatuh kehidupan
teringin sekali aku membawa kekasih hati
berbulan madu di situ
bercuti dan berlibur
dan jauh sekali dari kesibukkan kota Kuala Lumpur
ingin sekali aku 
membawa kekasih hati
ke tempat bermainku
ke tempat menimba ilmu ku
ke tempat di mana aku lari minta berlindung
dari kesakitan hati dan manusia manusia
yang pernah buat aku menangis pilu
jika ditakdirkan rezeki ku untuk ke tempat itu lagi
akan aku bawa kekasih hati bersama sama sekali
walaupun dalam sedang dibuai mimpi
entah mengapa, aku rindu sekali pada tempat itu tanggal hari ini.

Shah Alam, 4th Januari 2013
PS bawa aku lari dari sini, sebentar cuma, aku mohon sebentar sahaja...

Happy 2013

It's never too late to wish everyone of you A very Happy New Year! New Year is just like any other day, I woke up this morning with the usual feelings and the same expectation; I just want to be happy. But the New Year's spirit is there, the feeling of wanting to be better and to do good things and to try new adventures. Bidding 2012 wasn't easy. All i can say is that, it was a good ending and a good beginning :)

2012: When a boy meets a girl. We talked. and it was epic. but then the sun came up and reality set in. Well, this is reality, right here.

Ps Pray for us guys, TQ :)

y o u k n o w w h o y o u a r e :)

kenapa kita tidak bangga dan senyum melihat kebahagian kawan kawan
sambil berdoa agar diberikan kebahagian dan keindahan dalam kehidupan
bukannya cemburu yang tak berhabisan
atau minta dia ditimpa kecelakaan

cukup2lah dunia saling bergaduhan
mengapa antara kita tidak senyum dan berpelukan?

Selamat tahun baru 2013 ♥
