I begin with - Al fateha

Shaykh Hisham Kabbani is here.

I got this poster from Masjid Aleem Siddique website.
Sheykh Hisham is here in Singapore. Usually I would be sooo hapi. This time, Im worried, I dont know if I can attend any of his talks or not.

Eventhough, I am not in the Naqshabandi Tariqat, I love the zikir of the Naqshabandis and I never fail to be in full concentration and admiration when Sheykh Hisham gives his talks when he is here.
Also I always wonder how does he twirl his 'Sarban' so neatly, it looks like layers and layers of soft silk white cloth being woven in a caccon like 'sarban' on his head..

I usually drag hubby to his talks and hubby will always remind me jokingly that we are Allawyns, we follow tariqat Allawiyah.. hehe, he's worried that his wife might take the Ba'it. Well, i dont see that in the near future and I wont have time to do the daily set of zikir and of course Tariqat Rasullulah suits me just fine. Im still struggling with keeping Ratib as a daily amalan.

and Not that Im saying joining Tariqat is wrong. If it makes you stronger in Iman, and you felt the calling, go ahead. I was just telling my friend that no tariqat is wrong as long as its within the lines of Ahli Sunnah Wal Jammah.

Tariqat Ahmadia Idrisiya is also 1 tariqat that Im attracted to, led by the Alim Ustaz Hasbi bin Hassan. They have their zikir sessions at Masjid Kassim on Sunday nights after Isyak and whenever Im there, i can feel the sense of safeness in the protection of Allah s.w.t.

I not sure if I can make it these time round for Sheykh Hisyam talk. Generally I end work at 6pm but by the time I clear work, pray asar and go through what they need me too ( extra work ) , its already 7pm. Actually, I might just try and leave at 6pm on Wed. I need this. I need to take a break from my depressing work stress.

To my cousins Tanti and Rei whose been there for me through this sad / scary / stressful times, only Allah s.w.t can reward you. To sis Inah, I really mean it when I say we should cry together and thanks for telling me "LA TAHZAN LA TAHZAN LA TAHZAN" with a sad smile. That smile means alot.
To some who dont care and say harsh words, all I can say is every good we do is rewarded and every bad we do is recorded in the books of Amalans. I cannot match your harshness. I dont have the strength to at this moment.

Its the weekends. Alhamdullilah, alhamdullilah , alhamdullilahirobil allamin.

I rarely get to treasure "AIF" days these days. but its still not to late to say :
"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

Harshness gets through to life's practical jokes!

If you hide behind others, you'll never grow up maturely!

People who say the harshest words are the ones who cares the most.. think abt it.

maybe...i dont disagree to that but at a point when vulnerability is at state, does harshness helps ?

Insyallah, I will see you there, and we can get to be at a Naqshbandi Zikr again together! *I have a great liking for Naqsh-Haqqani too* Fickle-minded.

Anyway, I am with you in spirit, okay. Although I can't offer any words of comfort. I believe in times of ABSOLUTE depression and sadness, nobody can offer that help you really need except Allah.

Ummi, you are very blessed. You at least have somebody to talk to and somebody to give you harsh words. think about people who dont have anybody to turn to and suffer in silence and hold the hands of innocent chlidren, when they offer tissues to wipe your tears. There is a silver lining in every dark cloud. Allah will send angels to protect you when you are sinking in depression and you will emerge very strong. hey, think that your hard work is counted as an ibadhah.Allah sense you are innocent and you dont have a choice and you really need to work hard to stay away from this wordly attractions. Do you want to be a stay at home and a busy body. I am sure you are not that kind of person. Allah is watching you and He is holding your hands, you wont fall.
take care
luv and regard
