AIF ! ...

Alhamdullilah...Its a Friday ! And its the 1st day of June...

Its half the year already... Soon, we will be meeting Rejab, Sya'aban and the blessed Ramadhan.

Hubby's on leave today... due to the hot weather, we were forced to fix the multisplit in our bedrooms. We wanted to get Mitsubitshi StarMax but the whole of Singapore is sold out on that brand.
So we chose Sanyo. I could not wait any longer. Wanted to get it before the GST hike. Hope its good and serve us well.
We bought 4 servicing and Courts gave us 2 free. I think its a promotion.

Here I am working again after the P.H...
wanted to take Urgent leave today cos I always like to be at home where something big like installations are taking place in my home but since 3 of my collegues are already on leave, I didnt want to dissapoint the rest by not showing up too.

I had a good P.H yesterday. Me and hubby attended 2 ceramahs.

The first one was @ masjid Mydin where Ustaz Hasan Saifouridzal was giving ceramah DHUHA.

He mentioned that if a person likes to read Al-Quran, when in akhirat, his throat would be illuminating with light.
When a person reads the Quran in his home, rahmat would fall upon his home like rain water from the skies.
When a person recited the Al-Quran regularly, his parents will be wearing crowns in Akhirat...
Wow mummy and daddy, I hope that the both of you will be wearing crowns one day.. Insyallah.

Ibnu Hajar mentions that apart from reading the Quran, one should also always recite Selawat and wake up at night to ibadah in his home.

Ustaz told this story, One day, Imam Muhammad bin Idris AsSyafie'e went to visit his student Imam Hambali's home.

Imam Hambali prepared his teacher's room next to his room. At night , he woke up and to hear if his teacher was sleeping. But instead, he heard Imam Syafie'e waking up, and praying 2 rakaat. In the first rakaat, Imam Syafie'e read surah Al-Baqarah to Surah Mariam. In the 2nd Rakaat, Imam Syafie read the remaining surah until surah An-Nas.
This made Imam Hambali cry because his teacher only prayed 2 rakaat at night but in 2 rakaat, he could Qatam the Quran.

Allah has mention in the Quran, ''Wahai Orang yang berselimut ( muzammil ) , bangunlah malam walaupun dengan sekejap dan apabila telah bangun, bacalah Al-Quran, walaupun sedikit.''

After Kuliah Dhuha, Me and Hubby made our way to Masjid Alkaff Kampung melayu In Bedok Resevoir.

There was maulid, and ceramah by Ustaz Ahmad Dahari and after that, a Briyani Dam feast.
Ustaz Ahmad Dahari spoke on Islam Yang Berquality.

Basically, he spoke about 'Habelum Minallah wa Habelum Minnanas' – Hubungan Kita dengan Allah and Hubungan kita dengan Manusia.

Ustaz advise us to not forget Duniya while chasing for Akhirat.

Rasullulah (saw) said that this world is like a land of fields for us. What we sow in it is what we reap in Akhirat.

Allah wants us strive to do well in this world as well as in Akhirat.
Strive for a good career, strive for a good car, strive for a good home but dont forget Allah in the process.

Thats why there is this doa ''Rabbana Aatina Fid Duniya Hasanatau, wa Fil AakHIRATI Hasanatau wa Kinan Azaaban Naar. ''

Ustaz told this story.
Once Sayidina Omar AlKhattab R.A went to see Rasullulah (saw) and said ''Ya Rasullulah, that man over there in your mosque is a Good man. He does nothing but Prays, zikir and sits in the mosque.''
Rasullulah (saw) said '' Who gives him food ?''
Sayidina Omar r.a. said '' The villagers''.
Rasullulah (saw) said '' Who gives him clothes ?''
Sayidina Omar r.a said ''The Villagers''.
The Rasullulah (saw) said, ''Then that man is not GOOD. Its the Villagers who are good.''

The moral of the story is in our pursuit for Akhirat, we must also work hard in this world to gain rezeki and worldly possessions as long as its Halal within the Syaria law.


Innallàha wa malâikatahû yusallûna 'alan-nabiyy, yâ ayyuhalladhîna âmanû sallû alayhi wa sallimû taslîmâ. (Allah and His angels send blessings on the Prophet: O ye that believe! Send ye blessings on him, and salute him with all respect.) 33:56

So fun...I spent the whole day doing nothing because I was very tired.

Ust Ibrahim was saying that the Al-Quran is our strength.

I wanted to watch Ust Fouzy on Detik...but wasn't at home. Wanted to know how he succeeded.

Have a great weekend.

Wasalaam.
