My Breakthrough....

Today is a breakthrough for Muslimah ladies like me !

hee..at least thats how I feel....

well, the past few days have been quite a rollercoaster for my emo self.

I got the job ! Its official, Im joining another company insyallah, the same company that I rejected earlier.
I didnt search for it, it came to me on a Friday morning while I was reading the 'naqshabandi' book on sirah Nabi and was reading the part about womenfolks who do not cover their aurah and what happens to them in Hell.

So since it came to me for the second time, I had a strong feeling that Allah had made that job for me. I did made ALOT of selawat and pray hard for him to give me another job, one that makes me a better muslimah, and Again, HE gave me this job that i rejected. It must MEAN something right ?

Alhamdullilah, It pays well, beyond my own expectations and can wear Tudung .... but of course the downside is when they pay u so much, they also expect that much from you...

Anyway, Ive cleared all my doubts with my new employers and they reassured me that working late will be minimal as and when necessary but they will provide me plenty of guidance to make sure Im comfortable...

did I mention that my new boss is really COOL ? I like him the moment I met him... he used to be from the commandos.. So u can imagine how he looks like.. heee....

Oh yes, Y did I say that its a breakthrough for me ?
well, because when I tendered my resignation to my boss yesterday, It was tough for me and them too...
It made them feel sad that me, a loyal 7 years staff would finally leave the nest. They have groomed me well.
They tried to make me stay, the bosses met me , offering me Pay increment, promotion is confirm, transfer department and best of all, they will allow me to wear tudung !!


oh dear.. Isnt it too late boss ? y didnt YOU say so when I brought the tudung issue in my last appraisal ?

so YES, Im covering my aurat in my office today, for the first time in 7 years.. a breakthrough after 2 rejected request to wear the hijab since year 2002.

At this moment, Im still waiting on when they want me to leave, because since Im moving on to their 'competitor', they want me to leave soonest. I might not even serve 1 month notice or maybe I have too since they are shorthanded.

Alhamdullilah.. May Allah make this transition easy for me...My friends support me... 'be brave Ummi'.. 'If u never try, you wont know if you will fail or succeed'' ...
and my hubby told me '' Even if you fail in your new job, at least you tried and thats most important'.

Rabbi Yasir wala Tu'assir. Rabbi Tameem Bil Khair.

P/s... I dreamt that Habib Umar Bin Hafiz came to my house 2 nights ago, the day that I was suppose to tender. i didnt get to see him but I sense him. Then in the dream, Hubby woke me up and said that Habib Umar have left my house and that he made doa 3xs.
It felt so REAL. I woke up straight away and saw hubby sleeping beside me... so it was a dreame.. but an assuring dreame I must say...
