The day that i dont have to fly alone

- bismillah -

The day that i dont have to fly alone. 

I remember once, a sister asked if there is anyone flying back to amman on a certain date with a certain flight. She is searching for a partner. 

Well, i sent her a message saying that we could be together during the journey. 

That time, my parents sent me to KLIA for check in and then they had to rush back to Alor Setar with another flight. It was okay, i just proceed check in and wait a couple of hours until boarding. 

This kakak, contacted me. Surprisingly, very surprising, she had her family there and her in laws too there waiting until boarding time. I, who was at first thought that I am the one who would accompany her, had mixed feeling. It turned out to be that I, the lone girl was the one being accompanied. T.T  i got instant families to accompany me at the KLIA. 

We prayed and the families yang tolong tengokkan my luggages. Some photos and words of advices, ma shaa Allah, Allah is very kind. He showered His loves to anybody through anybody who He chose. 

Dalam dunia ni, kita sangka kita bantu orang tapi sebenarnya bantuan tu akan datang kebaikannya untuk diri sendiri. 

Pernah dengar lagu Sami Yusuf Healing? Lagu tu video dia kisahkan how a doctor saves other people's lives, and at the same time orang lain selamatkan anaknya. We help others for the sake of us ourself actually. 

There is another story about helping others. 

A car's tire (tyre british eng) was punctured in the middle of a highway to amman. It was driven by some malaysians, my friends. No, i wasnt in the car. 
Those young foreigners, just as helpless as another aliens in the planet they dont belong, sought help from passerby. There came a taxi stopping. He offered his help and transported them to a local workshop just to repair the tire and came back to the scene. 

My friend who told this story, said that the taxi driver told them, "i help you not for you but for me". Which he means, he is doing this in the fact that he knows, the kindness will be reflected back to him. If he refuses to help, then he is refusing to help himself in the future. 

I am doing this for me...not for you.

Love is... learning from Siti Hajar a.s.

- bismillah -

I happened to hear a ceramah from youtube this morning. The ustazah mentioned about Siti Hajar, the wife of Nabi Ibrahim and her perseverance with finding ways to survive in the bare open desert.

Siti Hajar isteri Nabi Ibrahim ialah ikon kesabaran, ikon juhud.

the significant Safa and Marwah saie, is for us to reflect that we shouldnt complain much. find ways for the solution of any problem we are facing, dont just sit, sleep and hoping that food and water will come to us after waking up.

i learnt that there are many types and definitions of love.
we hear about our Nabi Muhammad and his wives, Sulaiman, Yusuf and other Nabi.

as for the love that ties Nabi Ibrahim and Hajar, it's about sacrifice, trust, and patience. the family moved from Palestine to Makkah, (estimatedly from this part of earth that i'm living now, full of rocks and mountains, elevations, to a far far away land with no airplanes!), this can only be done with a great effort that is strengthen by a high determination to sacrifice, lillah. we can sacrifice money with no big deal if we have plenty of it, but sacrificing our previous life to move on to the unknown world is like sacrificing the best for the worse. but with deep trust in Allah and His plan, they managed to carry it well. Hajar asked her husband why did he left them there alone at the open desert, is it an order from Allah?, and when Ibrahim admitted it, she felt relieved and put all her trust in Allah and her husband. she continued living with her only son, at the deserted place, instilling the fact and faith that there would be no harm as Allah would take care of her and her child. Allah wouldnt let them go into despair. Allah would help them. she kept living with patience.

so love is about sacrifices, trusting and being patient as in this context of story.

i wish i can go to perform hajj and umrah with knowledge and eman. may i dont forget this story of great determinations and not complaining over hardship when i am performing saie later.

pray that may i have the love. may i have the meaning of love.
fillah. lillah.
