Sarah & Shota

We hosted a buka puasa for our Beradiks and some relatives from Singapore last 14 June 2017.

Meet Shota, a Japanese Muslim who also joined us for the Iftar that day, Alhamdulillah.

Talking to this Japanese boy about Islam, who speaks almost fluent Bahasa Melayu makes me feel sangat ‘kerdil’ 😦   His vast  knowledge about my deen and Al-Quran, is beyond my expectation as he only became a Muslim less than 3 years ago !

Shota is into studying Arabic here in Malaysia, InsyaAllah.

Our doa is that for you to have a blessed stay here in Malaysia, and may Allah SWT ease your soulful journey, InsyaAllah.  Hope to see you again, soon.

Sarawak dishes to mark 24!

Our little celebration, Alhamdulillah.   We went for Sarawak food this time round.  Kids love it.  Especially the Umai  and Ayam Pansuh.   Sehingga menjilat jari.  Jom layanz.

Here are the food.

and US 🙂

Nanti Along balik, kita repeat OK!

Alhamdulillah for the 24 colourful years of all of us.

Happy 24th years of love Suami ku :)

Selamat menyambut ulangtahun perkahwinan yang ke 24 Abang !

You Are, my shoulder to cry on, my lifetime pillar of strength!! *winkwink

At the end of all these, everything will come back to only you and me 🙂

Happy 23rd Birthday Along!!

(*nota kaki, we snapped this photo on 30/4/2017 when you came back for your short break, thinking we are gonna miss it again this year on the actual day – #orang merantau mencari ilmu gitu lah ya sayang# –  We bought  your birthday presents that day and ate cake already)

******************************************************************************

Dearest Along,

Ibu never ran out of ideas and love on every birthday of yours.  Remember that time, when you were 1 year old, barely walking and with less hair then, with that red sexy dress?

Feels only yesterday when we blew your first candles together at Mama’s house in Kampung Baru that day. You were our first baby.  And forever will be our baby.  That is for sure-lah kan 🙂

My Dear Along,

You have always been very kind.  You have always want to give away your things, sharing with someone else  That is why when your other siblings came, I hardly remember you ever fighting over a toy or almost anything.  You are always the one who gives in.

You are a very strong-opinionated person and sedikit garang hehe.  You probably wants to emphasize your thoughts?

Your ayah was so young when you arrived on that beautiful Hari Raya Aidil Adha @ 21 May 1994 @ 11 Zul Hijjah.  He was not immediately sure of how to handle you then, but today he thinks of you mostly.  Along this, Along that…. He knows, you will be his backbone when we both are no longer here in this duniya, one day.

Both Ayah and Ibu know for sure in our heart that you will look after the families for us.  It is just in YOU.  We are so blessed to have you as our eldest baby girl.  Alhamdulillah

So, happy birthday dear Baby.  You may be 23 years old today, but we will always be looking after you and your well being, InsyaAllah…  Kami doakan Along terus sukses dan menjadi Insan yang bertambah baik as day passes, InsyaAllah.

Never in our prayers that we forget you.  You forever will be the first name, Ibu and Ayah cite in our doa and solat.  Agar Along Miza Syakirah terus cemerlang di dunia ini dan di akhirat kelak.  Menjadi penerang jalan Ibu dan Ayah ke Syurga nanti, InsyaAllah… Aminn.

Terus maju dengan semua cita-cita Along yang SANGAT banyak itu.  Go travel and see the world Sayang, Go be that ‘somebody’ that you always dream of,  I am very sure you are in the right track and will be there soon.

We love you tremendously hugeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee, all of us do!!

Ibu will always be here, you know that right 🙂

Childhood is the sweetest.

No expectation about future.

#notakaki-EnglishSociety1980.

Arwah Shiin sudah meninggalkan kita semua :(

An old dear friend passed away yesterday 😦

And upon her passing, had also reunited us all again – ITM CP/CK Class of 1988 – 1991.

Allahu ! It was simply magical of how very sad and gloomy  day can crack a bit of smile to our sad faces  – when we are all coming together for Allahyarham.  We were tearful and sad and happy at the same time that we gathered again and cited our Yassin and sedekah ayat-ayat suci Al-Quran 😦 … on that sad day for her.

Our classmate, someone who we used to brush shoulders with, spoken with, shared life with (sigh 😦 ) is now gone, taken too early…

And I just have to keep on telling myself Inna Lillahi Wa Inna Ilayhi Raji’un… again and again, to stops tears from rolling down my cheek… that her time has come, and surely one day, it will be my turn too..

Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji’un ( انّا للہ و انّا الیہ راجعون ).

“Sesungguhnya kami adalah kepunyaan Allah dan kepada Allah jualah kami kembali.”

(Sigh) 😦 had her face in my head.  Her face during her dying day, when we visited her last on Sunday, 9th April.

And I have her face in my head right now, in that Bilik Jenazah, dimandikan dan dikafankan.. 😦

That face that I used to know, who used to be my friend… … And I guess it must be my age, her passing really hit me.  I was teary and feeling too sad 😦

But Alhamdulillah ramainya ahli keluarga, saudara mara dan sahabat handai Allahyarhamah yang hadir in both hospital room and Masjid.  The hospital room was packed, the masjid was full with families and friends too.

And Alhamdulillah, from her families –  we came to know that her Sakaratul Maut was made easy and kind.  Alhamdulillah, Syukur Ya Allah Ar Rahman Ar Rahim – Sesungguhnya Engkau Maha Pengasih dan Maha Penyayang….

She was gone, with everyone who she loved dearly next to her.

InsyaAllah, for all the pain and hardship that Allah SWT tested you with in this duniya will have its reward in your Akhirat, my friend.  I have faith!!

That is what Allah SWT promise both you and me…

So I bid my farewell to a friend yesterday… 😦 *crying

Sahabatku, Allahyarhamah Nazatul Shirin binti Mokhtar – damai dan tenanglah kamu di sana.  Selesai lah sudah urusan dunia mu.  Doa kan kami sentiasa juga…

Ber isti rehatlah bersama para solihah sementara kedatangan kami.

Ya Allah Al Malik, Al Mutakabbir, kami mohon ampunkanlah segala dosa-doa sahabat kami Ya Allah.  Kasih dan kasihanilah beliau.  Redha lah dengan segala sedekah jariah and amalan baik beliau, sesungguhnya dari Kamu kami datang Ya Allah, dan kepadaMu lah kami Pulang jua..

Our friend, Shiin passed away peacefully at 10.22 am yesterday 10 April 2017..

Many of us were there yesterday, the faces from the past and we were hugging each other and giving each other strength to remind us all of our friendship and Silaturrahim that we used to have and will now continue to bloom.  May Allah SWT also showers us with barakah with our friendship.

And when its our time, may our friends also will be there to spare their bacaan Yassin, doa and say goodbyes.. 😦

Al Fatihah… 😦
