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.
