From 3 February to 14 February 2011 @ Masjid Abdul Aleem Siddique….
Be there, for the sake of Allah and Rasululllah S.A.W…. ♥
Hubby came back from work at 3 a.m this morning and we almost missed the chance to be at Masjid Sultan for Majlis Selawat Ke Atas Rasulullah S.A.W Siri 2. It has been raining since last night and with the cool weather it’s so tempting to just stay in bed. But I got everyone to get ready and by the time we reached Masjid Sultan it was already closed to 11 a.m. Once again, better late than never.
I saw lots of familiar faces and met some friends at the Majlis. As expected, Ustaz Shafi was also present at the last hour of the Majlis. He went right after the Dhuha class at Masjid An-Nur which he ended the class early just to be at Majlis full of baraqah.
Thank you to Allah for the opportunity for me to be with the people of Allah and the lovers of Rasulullah S.A.W….
Finally my kids and I had somewhere to go.
When we were having our lunch, I sms-ed two of my very close cousins, wanting to make them the victim of my boredom. One of them was going out, but the other one would be home the whole day to accompany her mom (my aunt) as my uncle just passed away recently. Without thinking twice, bought some food for them, hailed a taxi and off we went.
My kids were the most excited people as they got to play with my cousin’s girl, Nisa. Apparently, Nisa was also super excited to see us. Being the only child, she’s simply love our company. And I was super duper excited as I got to romos-ed her many many times! 😀
It’s nice to see that my aunt is coping well after the passed on of my uncle. I could still see the sadness in her eyes, but time will bring back the cheerfulness in her. While the kids were watching TV, my aunt and I had a nice chat. We talked about some current issues, about our volunteering days at the old Masjid Muhajirin, we shared the Islamic knowledge the we had learnt and also touched about our plans for the future. As she is my late mom’s sister, somehow I could see my mom in her. I realized that all my earlier plans failed because Allah wants me to spend bonding and quality time with my aunt. I’m thankful for that….
As I was in the mood to take photos, I brought my 50D along and took some shots at my cousin’s house. Here’s some of them :
I’ve made great plans for today. A nice place to lunch, places to go and things to do for the whole Saturday.
But all that is shattered by just a phone call. Hubby got to work! I know he’s on standby so that call could come anytime. But sometimes when we had no plans, there would be no call at all. It happened before so I thought it would be the same for today.
Now I got to crack my head to think of somewhere to go and something to do with the kids, minus the Hubby. Definitely cannot stick to the previous plan as we need Hubby to be with us, to take us there and do things. Feels like a handicapped without him around.
Friday is a blessed day, indeed.
I always wanted to attend the monthly Majlis Rasulullah organized by MHDS at Masjid An-Nadhah on the last Friday of every month. But since Friday night is Afrina’s tuition day, so I don’t have the chance. But tonight was different. Hubby told me that we shall go right after Afrina come back from her tuition. Alhamdulillah!
Even though we came about half an hour late, but better late than never. The reverberant of Selawats filled Masjid An-Nadhah. The lovers of Rasulullah S.A.W swarmed the mosque. I managed to squeeze among the crowd on the ‘Iktikaf section. The last part of the event was the most poignant, touching and penetrated straight to the heart. We just need to close our eyes, face down, and feel Rasulullah’s love towards his Ummah. MasyaAllah….Tears just rolled down uncontrollably, weeping and longing to meet our beloved Rasulullah S.A.W.
Thank you, Allah for the giving me the opportunity to be at an event full of baraqah…..
Right after the Majlis, how could I refuse when Hubby brought me to Jalan Kayu for a supper date, just the two of us….
I try my best to do something useful that can bring the feeling of satisfaction after doing it, every day. I will diligently jot down what I’ve done so see my accomplishment for the day. It doesn’t matter how easy or how small that task is. As long as it gives me the sense of satisfaction, I feel really content.
Example, like this morning, I scrubbed clean my stove. I scrubbed and scrubbed until it met my expectation. It may be nothing great to others, but I felt so good and satisfied. Looking at the clean stove really motivates me to cook for my family. But fortunately, I don’t have to cook today as my 4th floor neighbour gave me FOUR packets of Nasi Briyani. I adore this neighbour of mine. She always cook for the orphans at Darul Ikhsan or Darul Lilbanat, and she never forget to share her cooking with me. May Allah increase her sustenance and protect her family always. Amin.
I was also in the mood to make Strawberry Pudding. My kids love to eat those. They used to buy those puddings at stalls costing $1 each. After making them, I realized how easy to make those puddings and how cheap is the cost. So now I can make puddings with different colours and flavours and just store in the fridge for them to consume.
