Positive Or Negative > The Choice is Yours..

Assalamualaikum..
Watch this
Its really interesting

video


I like the quote from the video..so inspiring! MashaAllah..
Change Ur thought, then U can change Ur world
Then I think, if we can change our world or in other words, ourself-
There's no doubt we can change the world or surrounding! InshaAllah..
I guess, its all about our mindset
At least that's what I understood when watching this video..^_^

The ninja, at first, thought that the flies are the problems
He tries very hard to kill its and actually, by doing that
He lets the flies distracting him
Sounds familiar?
Ok, try this
In life, problems, obstacles are not something that can be avoided
Each of U will be faced it no matter who U are or where U come from
Hey, Allah already said it in His Love Letter Compilation! Look here

Be sure we shall test you with something of fear and hunger, some loss in goods or lives or the fruits (of your toil), but give glad tidings to those who patiently persevere (2:155)

E.V.E.R.Y.O.N.E will be tested by our Rabb
But, what makes the difference is the way we handle it and if we handle it improperly
The difficulty could distracting us and of course, will make our head blown up!
Back to the video
Did Mr. Ninja manage to kill the flies?
Nop! U watch the video rite?=)
The flies are keep increasing!
But later, he realized something
If he keeps killing or cutting the flies into the pieces,
It worth him nothing
The flies will keep rising, he will keep fighting and his body and time will pay for it
Because..
His body will lost a lot of energy
And his time will be wasted and he could not focus on his meditation
So, what he should do now is changing his mind setting
Don't see the flies as the annoying one
But as the beautiful petals and the sound of bugging flies is like a streaming of water
So calm and peaceful..
By doing this, he succeed to overcome the distraction

I've learnt something from this..
When facing a difficulty, there's a situation U have to face first
Whether to think positive or negative
Either to be an optimist or a pessimist
It reminds me with the story of half empty or half full glass
If U are the optimist type, U'll see the glass as the half full but
If U are the pessimist one, U'll see it as the half empty glass
So, in other words
For the positive thinkers, the difficulty is a challenge for them
Its also a test for them to rise up to the upper level
Also one way to drag them to move beyond the limit
Get out from the comfort zone
Discover the new potential that sometimes we don't even realize that we able to do that!
Don't be the pessimist one.. Which takes problems as something that can let their spirit down.. Its like tomorrow never comes or that is the end of the life..

Yes, I do know that some people have this questions in their mind

  • Why i have been tested in this way? It's just so hard for me..
On no soul doth Allah Place a burden greater than it can bear. It gets every good that it earns, and it suffers every ill that it earns. (2:286)

See! Allah will give us a test because He knows that we can overcome with it. Its like when U have been given an important task from Ur leader, what would U feel? I'm sure all of us will feel proud, feel like we are important to our leaders because they trust on U. They realize that U have the ability to perform the task better than others. The same thing happened here! When U face a challenge and U feel like want to give up, always remember that Allah knows U can face it. He knows that U can overcome with it. That is why He gives U this test especially for U.. not to the others!

  • How I should face it? I'm clueless and helpless =(
O ye who believe! Persevere in patience and constancy; vie in such perseverance; strengthen each other; and fear Allah; that ye may prosper.(3:200)
Nay, seek (Allah's) help with patient perseverance and prayer: It is indeed hard, except to those who bring a lowly spirit (2:45)

Both ayah have emphasized the important to be patient and also turn to Allah as He is the only one can guide us to the right way.. Some people will turn away from Allah when he's in difficulty. They feel like Allah is not there to help them. He loss his hope to Allah. Naudhubillah

There are among men some who serve Allah, as it were, on the verge: if good befalls them, they are, therewith, well content; but if a trial comes to them, they turn on their faces: they lose both this world and the Hereafter: that is loss for all to see! (22:11)

This ayah mentioned about those people who only serve Allah when the good things happened to them and betray Him when a trial comes to them. Allah also said that these kind of people will lose both world and hereafter! Subhanallah.. May Allah protect us from becoming one of this people and let us be the one who will be with Allah through thick and thin.. Ameen

  • Why I fail to succeed? I've put all my efforts but still, the result is not like what I want..
...But it is possible that ye dislike a thing which is good for you, and that ye love a thing which is bad for you. But Allah knoweth, and ye know not.(2:216)

Again, Allah knows the best. He is Ur Creator, my Creator and our Creator.. Put Ur full faith on Him. It is not impossible that Ur wish will bring harm to U.. who knows? This is not Ur time yet. Take that failure or the challenge as a lesson straightly comes from Allah! Maybe U've done something bad for examples, U forget Him when U're so busy preparing for Ur exam.. or maybe U have hurt Ur parent's hearts or hurting others people feeling with Ur acts! Think about it for a sec...or even better, Allah might want to reward U for Ur patience and that is why He gives U all the hardships.. Come on. Think positive with Allah s.w.t. If U can think positive to other people- His own creations, why can't U think the same way to Our God? Don't forget, He is the MOST COMPASSIONATE one!..Just stick to Allah's way and U'll never stray to wrong path since He'll be there for U.. He will..

My last words here, let's change our mindset. Don't be scared about what will happen in future. How can U touch the sky if U don't fly? How can U know it's a mistake if U don't try? I have watched a TV series which one of the actors said sometimes the big mistake is when U don't give Urself a chance to know whether the choice U made is a mistake or not..Well.. I guess the point is clear there. And also, how U're going to change the world if U failed to change Ur own world due the failure to change Ur own thought?




Don't Lie!

Deceive-Lie-Betray-Trick
Different words but have the same meaning
It's also an act that can hurt someone
Especially to the loved one
What is the purpose to do this?
Someone I know used to tell me this,
To survive in this world, sometimes,lying is a MUST!
Or else,someone will 'eat' you
But for me, when someone is deceiving others
This is because, he or she want to hide the truth
Trust me, This is also the reason why I used to tell lies b4..
hmm..
But then, I started to realize
When you start telling a lie
You will create another one
For eg; A teacher asked his student, John about why he did not come to school
yesterday
Teacher: Why did U absent from school yesterday?
John : Owh..I'm having a fever(actually, he went to the cyber cafe)

Teacher: Really..so, did U bring Ur MC?

John : Sorry sir.. I didn't go to see the doc. Nobody's can take me
there
Teacher
:Really. Where's Ur parents?
John : Urm..Both of them are not in home..They've gone on vacation.for a week

Teacher: Vacation?without U?in the middle of month?

John : Yeah..they are having their erm..2nd honeymoon! That's why they
have gone without me and they picked this date because..They want to avoid traffic jam! U know sir, how crazy the traffic can be sometimes especially during holidays.haha (John started to feel uneased,his trying his best to hide the truth)
Teacher: I see..now I understand why U couldn't bring the MC

John : (He feels relieved when thinking his teacher believe in his
story)
Teacher: But what I don't understand here, can U explain to me why is Ur mother is waving
at us right now with ur books on her hand?!
John : erk.. That's my mother's twin..
(Oh My God!)

Did U get something? John keep lying in order to cover the truth. That's also can happen to us. Ok. Maybe the story is just a normal situation which bring no harm.
But how about, when John keep practicing lies to cover his acts, what happen to him when he grown up?
Especially when he gets married..
Do you really think he will speak no lies towards his wife and family when he is doing something wrong?of course not!
The reason?
Because John is habituated to it and he perfect in it
So, what is relationship if it based on lies?
Besides love, the trustworthy is also an important thing to build a relationship right?
And, just put Ur place to his family position
How would U feel when U know someone is cheating on U?
Hurt right? especially when it comes from the one that U really trust

So,what I'm trying to say here
Just tell the truth
Speak no lies
No matter how hard the reality it is, I'm sure no one like to be deceived
Yes, telling the truth is hard, sometimes it can lead to the bad consequences
This is where U should know what is the best situation and the best way to tell the person
And if the person cannot accept it, just let them be
Give them some times
And for U
Deep inside in Ur heart, U will feel relieve because
At least, one burden has been removed from Ur shoulders
Plus if U creating the lies, U will be caught up
If its not today, it will be another day..

Narrated 'Abdullah:

The Prophet said, "Truthfulness leads to righteousness, and righteousness leads to Paradise. And a man keeps on telling the truth until he becomes a truthful person. Falsehood leads to Al-Fajur (i.e. wickedness, evil-doing), and Al-Fajur (wickedness) leads to the (Hell) Fire, and a man may keep on telling lies till he is written before Allah, a liar." (HR Bukhari)

Narrated Abu Huraira:

Allah's Apostle said, "The signs of a hypocrite are three: Whenever he speaks, he tells a lie; and whenever he promises, he breaks his promise; and whenever he is entrusted, he betrays (proves to be dishonest)". (HR Bukhari)


And if someone has admitted something to U,
My advice is,
Forgive them..
Appreciate their courage to tell U the truth instead of telling lies
U know, it is no easy to admit the mistakes especially the serious one
At least, tell them, U may forgive, but not forget
And also, help them to fix the problem instead of yelling or cursing them
Always remember this, Nobody is perfect
Today is their day
Tomorrow? Maybe one day we will be in their shoes..

Narrated Abu Huraira:

Allah's Apostle said, "The strong is not the one who overcomes the people by his strength, but the strong is the one who controls himself while in anger." (HR Bukhari)

Narrated Anas bin Malik:

The Prophet said, "Make things easy for the people, and do not make it difficult for them, and make them calm (with glad tidings) and do not repulse (them )." (HR Bukhari)
















Things You Should Know About Islam

video

The message in this song, MashaAllah-so nice..

For those who curious about Islam listen here-

Islam is all about peace

Terrorism it doesn’t teach

It’s all about love, family and charity…

Do you know-even the word Islam itself is derived from Arabic word salama which mean peace..hmm

And do you know our beloved Prophet Muhammad s.a.w was sent by Allah swt to perfect the akhlak’ , the behavior and the mindset of Arab people at that time..

Our prophet s.a.w has taught Islam- the beautiful way of life

Which the teachings are about how to worship the only god, Allah swt

To do good to your parents, love and respect them

Don’t believe me? Check this out

Your Lord has decreed that you worship none but Him, and that you be kind to your parent. Whether one or both of them attain old age in your life, say not to them a word of contempt, nor repel them, but address them in honour (Al-Isra’:23)

Besides that, Allah also said

And, out of kindness, lower to them the wing of humility, and say:

“My Lord! Bestow on them Your Mercy even as they cherished me in childhood.” (Al-Isra’:24)

And Prophet s.a.w also has emphasized it to us so many times! And to give you a few..

· Yazid b. Abu Habib reported that Na'im, the freed slave of Umm Salama, reported to him that 'Abdullah b. 'Amr b. 'As said: There came to Allah's Apostle (may peace be upon him) a person and said: I owe allegiance to you for migration and Jihad seeking reward only from Allah. He (the Holy Prophet) said: Is one from amongst your parents living? He said: Yes, of course, both are living. He further asked: Do you want to seek reward from Allah? He said: Yes. Thereupon Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) said: Go back to your parents and accord them with kindly treatment. ( HR Muslim)

· Narrated 'Abdullah bin 'Amr: It is narrated on the authority of 'Abdur-Rahman b. Abu Bakra that his father said: We were in the company of the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) that he observed: Should I not inform you about the most grievous of the grave sins? (The Holy Prophet) repeated it three times, and then said: Associating anyone with Allah, disobedience to parents , false testimony or false utterance. The Holy Prophet was reclining, then he sat up, and he repeated it so many times that we wished that he should become silent. (HR Muslim)

And also, when the song mentioned about the charity, the singer got the point.. Wanna proof?

· Narrated Abu Huraira:

The Prophet (p.b.u.h) said, "Seven people will be shaded by Allah under His shade on the day when there will be no shade except His. They are:

a just ruler;

a young man who has been brought up in the worship of Allah, (i.e. worship Allah (Alone) sincerely from his childhood),

a man whose heart is attached to the mosque (who offers the five compulsory congregational prayers in the mosque);

two persons who love each other only for Allah's sake and they meet and part in Allah's cause only;

a man who refuses the call of a charming woman of noble birth for an illegal sexual intercourse with her and says: I am afraid of Allah;

a person who practices charity so secretly that his left hand does not know what his right hand has given (i.e. nobody knows how much he has given in charity).

a person who remembers Allah in seclusion and his eyes get flooded with tears."

(HR Bukhari)

· Narrated 'Aisha:

Some of the wives of the Prophet asked him, "Who amongst us will be the first to follow you (i.e. die after you)?" He said, "Whoever has the longest hand." So they started measuring their hands with a stick and Sauda's hand turned out to be the longest. (When Zainab bint Jahsh died first of all in the caliphate of 'Umar), we came to know that the long hand was a symbol of practicing charity, so she was the first to follow the Prophet and she used to love to practice charity. (Sauda died later in the caliphate of Muawiya). (HR Bukhari)

Plus! Allah also has ordered us-Muslims to pay zakat or the obligatory charity tax. Some of our properties will be given to the needy for the sake of Allah, to help those in difficulty-

And be steadfast in prayer and regular in charity..(Al-Baqarah:110)

By no means shall you attain righteousness unless you give ( freely)of that which you love; and whatever you give, of a truth Allah knows it well (Al-Baqarah:92)

So, with all of these, do you still think that Muslims are terrorist? Ok.. maybe there’s some people will ask this question;

How about the things that I’ve seen in TV? Muslims bombing hotels, planes and etc..

Let me explain to you here..

People of the world.....
Do you know the truth about..... Islam?
Or do you think it's about
Bombing planes and killing innocent people.....?
Forget about the lies.....
I' am here to tell you how it really is.....
You deserve to know the truth
About this beautiful way of life.....


Yes! In Islam, Allah swt and Prophet s.a.w did ask Muslims to commence a war BUT with certain conditions. When having a war, it is PROHIBITED for the Muslims to kill women and children;

  • Yahya related to me from Malik from Ibn Shihab that a son of Kab ibn Malik (Malik believed that ibn Shihab said it was Abd ar-Rahman ibn Kab) said, "The Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, forbade those who fought ibn Abi Huqayq (a unfaithful jew from Madina) to kill women and children. He said that one of the men fighting had said, 'The wife of ibn Abi Huqayq began screaming and I repeatedly raised my sword against her. Then I would remember the prohibition of the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, so I would stop. Had it not been for that, we would have been rid of her.’ " (HR Malik)
  • Yahya related to me from Malik from Nafi from Ibn Umar that the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, saw the corpse of a woman who had been slain in one of the raids, and he disapproved of it and forbade the killing of women and children. (HR Malik)

Islam also taught the Muslims to not to kill the innocent people, instead treat them kindly eventhough there are not Muslims as long as they do not bring harm to us;

Allah forbids you not, with regard to those who fight you not for (your) Faith nor drive you out of your homes, from dealing kindly and justly with them: for Allah loves those who are just (Al-Mumtahanah:8)

Now, can you see! How Islam promoting the peace, not terrorism! And how Islam teaching the Muslims to do good to others, not oppressing them like some other racers did! Yup, I do understand, maybe some people might get confused. Why the Muslims commit the things that are not reflected them as a Good Muslim. This is because

Too many people wear a title of a Muslim
But they don't practice Islam..

Yeah, listen here- Islam is a perfect religion! But the Muslims, the people (including me) are not..And my advice-

If you want to study Islam, study the religion itself, not the PEOPLE! If you want to see the examples of a REAL MUSLIMS, look at the Prophet s.a.w and also his companions.. I’m not saying all the Muslims nowadays are bad,nop! That’s not my point. You still can see there’s some people who still hold to Al-Qur’an and Sunna.. And this people are those you can ask or refer if you wanna know the REAL TEACHINGS of Islam..Believe me, once you know the truth about Islam, you will see the reasons why we called ISLAM-A BEAUTIFUL WAY OF LIFE

Insya'Allah..


Exam is around the corner..


To all my beloved friends..
wish U all the best in your final exam
Study Smart+Hard+Pray to Allah
Have a STRONG FAITH on HIM
May He GUIDES us..
Ameen..
