Have Faith

Bismillah Rahmanir Raheem (In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful)
Assalamualaikum wr wb our dear brothers and sisters,

We hope that you’re in the best state of health and iman insyaAllah!

Let us start off with a story, which we hope could benefit you in one way or the other.


A little boy was telling his Grandma how “everything” is going wrong. 

School, family problems, health problems, problems with friends, etc.

Meanwhile, Grandma is baking a cake. 

She asked her grandson if he would like a snack, which, of course, he does.

“Here, have some cooking oil.”

"Yuck.” said the boy.

”How about a couple raw eggs?” Asked Grandma 

“Gross, Grandma!” Replied the boy.

"Would you like some flour then? Or maybe baking soda?”

“Grandma,  all of them are yucky!”

To which Grandma replies: 
“Yes, all those things seem bad all by themselves. But when they are put together in the right way, they make a wonderfully delicious cake!


From the story, we learnt that the littlest things can benefit us positively. In the Islamic context, Allah works the same way. In our life, we can’t run away from obstacles and struggles that will affect us. Sometimes, we wonder why Allah gave us those bad and hard challenges when you have enough on hand. Those were the times which we felt as though oue world had turned into a complete darkness.

“Sometimes darkness is there to remind how beautiful light can be”. 
A quote we should really reflect on.

Allah indeed knows why He places all those moments in our life. When He put those challenges, they always work out for good. We would benefit from them as we will become someone stronger and wiser. We just have to trust Him and eventually, they will all make something wonderful.Verily, Allah is Ever All-Knower, All-Wise. And follow that which is revealed to you from your Lord. Verily, Allah is Well-Acquainted with what you do. And put your trust in Allah, and Sufficient is Allah as a Wakil (Trustee, or Disposer of affairs).  [Surah Al-Ahzab: 2-3]

In time of struggles, pray to Allah to grant you strength and to ease your affairs. Let us reminder one another and continue to establish our faith in Allah s.w.t when given the many trials and challenges, for it is all made and designed for our very own good. Allah indeed knows best what is best for us, and all praises to Him for He is indeed the All-Knower (Al-Alim) and the All-Wise (Al-Hakim).

Be thankful for all the blessings that you have!


I am a slave

I am a slave

I have become a slave of my desires;

I have fallen into the trap of this world

And change is something dire.

I have become a slave of anger;

A spark of  fire was all it took,

And now I am an oncoming danger to everyone.

Never was that my intention,

Thus, the only way out is Ablution,

To which I am cooled down the moment I am enraged.

I have become a slave of sorrow;

Forever bringing back the past

And never positive for the morrow

While the present is left unattended.

I have become a slave of the people;

I followed the flock of emptiness

And I am finding it hard to find a way 

Out of the darkness they enjoy -

The heart is left devoid

And now I am stranded in a sea of sorrows.

I have become a slave of technology;

Piling up frivolous stories that do not concern me -

Oh the mental slavery!

"None but ourselves can free our minds."

As much as it seems of the slavery I have become,

And the sins I have collected,

I am reminded -

I am a slave of The Most Merciful.

Everything is Beautiful

When you add Him

Into your equation of life and death

For it only reminds you

Of the deception

This world contains.

Turn back now to the right path.

It is never too late

For you and I

To seek His forgiveness.

Remember now

And tell yourself:

"Indeed, I am what I am: I am Abdullah."

I am a slave of Allah -

I am the slave of The Most Merciful.

Who are they?
