AIF ! ...

Alhamdullilah, Its FRIDAY !!

Its been 2 weeks since I last wrote an AIF entry.

I miss writing on books that Ive read. But with all the things thats been happening lately, my new job and all, Ive hardly any time to read a book.

The only books that I managed to read in the morning is abit of Quran after Subur prayers and I did manage to read Ratib Al Hadad and Ratib Al Attas within the past few days just to calm my jitters.

I didnt really know that I had much blog readers until I received smses to ask if I was really expecting a baby boy name Muhd FIT !
As most of my readers know now, Muhd FIT is not a human being. Sorry for the confusion huh.. heee...

Its been about 4 days since Ive started my new job.

I have to admit that for the first 3 days, I really had to adjust myself to the new culture etc.. In fact, I thought I was falling into a depression when I faced the things that I had to learn for my new job. I was lonely when I went for lunch alone on the 1st day.
I missed my ex colleagues who were my lunch partners...

I had to ask myself again on Y did I leave my comfort zone..

After my first day of work that day, I told my hubby that If he allowed me to cry, I would cry right there and then. But I held the tears because I didnt want to disappoint him. Im staying strong because of him and because of my intentions.

Today, while undergoing training, I suddenly felt good about this job and the more I learnt, the better I felt.

My new colleagues are slowly opening up to me, just as how Im starting to feel comfortable with them.

I called my hubby to tell him that Im feeling the blessings of this new job, with my aurat covered, I can now say that I do feel complete as in Im a person whom I wanna be. I just have to keep myself on the right path now.

Jazzakallah Khair to all my readers and my friends and my cousins and my kakak sedaras who doa for me on the success of my new job. This is the trait of a true muslim ~ Being concern for one another.

I was searching for good things to say in my blog today , and 4 advises came to my mind.

1. Be merciful, even to cats. ( courtesy of my friend Ihsan )

2. Jangan tinggalkan solah ~ dont leave your prayers. ( courtesy of the late Habib Awad Bin Hamid from his wife )

3. Hati Mau Baik ~ the heart must be clean and good. ( courtesy of the late Habib Awad Bin Hamid from his wife )

4. During work, and the stress is too great, zikir tasbih Nabi Yusnos A.S ~ LA'ILLAH HA ILLAH ANTA, SUBAHANAKA, INNI KUNTU MINAL ZALLIMMIN ( courtesy of my hubby )

Blessings and Peace be upon you, O leader of the Prophets.
Blessings and Peace be upon you, O last of the Propehts.
Blessings and Peace be upon you, O one that Allah sent as a Mercy for all the universe.
May the good pleasure of Allah, the exalted be upon all the companions of the prophet of Allah.
Innallàha wa malâikatahû yusallûna 'alan-nabiyy, 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

I totally understand...When I first started my current job, I also missed my friends greatly - coz my previous colleagues are my friends. I missed the relaxed environment, and I had to learn a totally new skill (different industry), I got scolded bcoz of that...I got culture shock. In fact, I told my boss, I don't think I'm right for the job. But I'm still here, for one reason or another. At times, I wonder whether I did the right thing, then, I have to tell myself all over again why I'm doing this. Once in a while, I have doubts - and this is normal. But think of the little blessings, and that will inspire you to go ahead - like you have more money which you can put to good use, like it's near the masjid, like maybe you have less opportunity to indulge in idle talk...things like that.

As my teacher said, you can also call on Allah's name Al-Khabir - His knowledge encompasses everything, and this is important to remember when you're faced with something you have no knowledge of.

And I'm also confused about Muhd FIT, although I didn't think you were pregnant since I last saw you.

Thanks for sharing the advice.

Dun weri, trust your heart. Knowing you, you must have solat istigharah before deciding and God has showed you the way..trust Him, He knows best :) At times, the beginning is always the hardest.but it gets easier over time...im going to change school too and i keep thinking whether its wise but i take comfort that it is much nearer to home. Insya'Allah, if our niat is good, God will make it easier on us. With doa and faith, i always believe i'll get it through someway. Dun weri, darling, you'll always have a friend ( and a cuz ) in me and im always here to share your woes and happiness.. and of coz congrats to my dear cuz, your hub, for the promotion and to you both for Mr. Fit hehe..take care babe :)

p/s: the 5 Bismillah doa really helps :)
