LiFe....


Early in the morning today, I stood gazing out the window, I saw a single leaf fell from a tree.... 

"...........No leaf ever falls but that He knows about it......." Al-Anaam: 59


He knows everything... He knows what we know not....

I've heard sad news recently, I learnt that someone, right now, at this moment is being tested with something so huge that I'm not so sure if I myself could bear it.....

"Allah does not burden a soul beyond that it can bear..." Al-Baqara: 286

But, some people argue, if that's the promise from God, then how come some people are being tested with a burden so huge that they eventually became mentally ill??

"But those who attain to faith and do righteous deeds, We never burden a soul with more that it can bear, they are worthy of Paradise, wherein they will live forever.." Al-Araf: 42

Note in this above Ayah;
THOSE WHO ATTAIN FAITH AND DO RIGHTEOUS DEEDS, are those who will not be burdened beyond that they can bear...

So where are we?? Have we done righteous deeds?? Have we obeyed Allah fully???


Sometimes, Allah put a burden on us, and we feel like it was too much to bear, we can't help wondering:
"Why me?? Why am I being punnished?? Why this has to happened?? I've done everything that Allah wants me to do as a Muslim, but still He gives me challenges that I can't bear!
Why why why why??"

Before we let ourselves fall down this slippery slope of anger and denial and hatred or whatever we wanna call it when we are being tested....

Remind ourselves again;

"Allah does not burden a soul beyond that it can bear..." Al-Baqara: 286

"Surely there is ease after hardship.." Al-Insyirah: 5&6

"Do you think that you will enter Paradise without such (trials) as came to those who passed away before you? They were afflicted with severe poverty and ailments and were so shaken that even the Messenger and those who believed along with him said, "When (will come) the Help of Allah?" Yes! Certainly, the Help of Allah is near!"   Al-Baqara: 214

SubahanAllah... Everything is in the Quran... EVERYTHING...
It is the key, the solution, to all our problems and misery in Life. It is also the key to happines, it has all the answers WE NEED...

Today, after I picked Fatini up from kindergarten, two men approached me, they gave me a small book full of translations of some chapters of the bible, there's Arabic, English, Chinese, and many more. One of them showed me the English version, in short, from what he'd asked me to read, I concluded that they were both doing what all Muslims should be doing, 'Dakwah'...

I suddenly felt so sad, for reasons I hardly knew, so I said to them, and I had no idea how those Deutsch words spilled out from my mouth, (as both of them weren't able to speak English and I hardly use deutsch anymore in conversation);

"Es tut mir leid, Ich bin Moslem, Ich habe kein Bible zu hause, aber Ich habe der Quran, und es ist genug für mich, Ich bin sehr glüklich mit meinem leben...."

That was exactly what I said to them, and the meaning is something like this;

"I'm sorry, I am a Muslim, I don't have Bible at home but I have the Quran, and it is enough for me, and I am very happy with my life.."

I don't know if what I said make sense to them, or that it has anything to do with what they were trying to deliver, but I understood from what they'd asked me to read, was that the Bible is the source of happiness, the real tranquility I shall find if I join them.. Things like that... 

They looked surprised when I mentioned the word Muslim, I mean, didn't they see my Hijab??

Nevertheless, I admire their courage to spread what they have strong faith in and we Muslims should do the same thing, in fact more.. 

A few months ago, Afeef asked me this question, let me just put it in English;

"Mama, if Islam is the real Religion, then how are those who were born in a non Muslim family to know that Islam is the real Religion? How are they to know that they should chose Islam as their Religion? They would for sure follow their parents, it's unfair for them to be born as non Muslim...."

And before I could answer, he answered it himself.. The idea just hit him, I guess... 
He said this, which amazed me;

"Haaaaaaaa.. I know how!! We Muslims should teach them about Islam!"

You see, even a 9 year old knows the meaning of Dakwah... (",)


I wasn't a good Muslimah in the past, but it's never too late to become one.. 
After all, what matters most is not the first, but the final chapter of your Life..
And........      Life's Like That... ;-)


                


Till Later, Salam....
