open happiness

Jika hendak menilai
Inilah aku yang sekarang
Masa lalu, jadikan pelajaran
Tanya orang2 terdekatku yang paham
Akupun tak ingin asal menilai orang.

Merci :)

Imagine.

Someone really, really important is coming to visit you. Surely, you would cook, clean, shop, prepare and plan everything for them, well ahead of time. You would make sure they are comfortable and well taken care of. You would ascertain that everything is perfectly ready and adequately in place before they arrive.

Now imagine someone coming to visit you that is even more important than that….more precious, more valuable, more honorable. Wouldn’t you prepare even more and give it the best you got?

Well, the best month of the year, the most blessed and most precious, is coming up. The month that brings the fragrance of Jannah and the sweetness of Imaan….the tears of Taubah and the forgiveness of your Lord. And it’s bringing with it a night that is equivalent in worship and reward, to more than a thousand months.

Wouldn’t you want to prepare for that?
Wouldn’t you want to be ready for it with all your heart and soul so that you don’t miss this great opportunity?

They say the more prepared you are for something, the easier it is for you to handle it and the greater the chances that you will be successful at it. And what better opportunity to prepare for something than preparing for the blessed month of Ramadhaan.
This is a month of Rahmah and Barakah, a month of taubah and istighfaar, a great opportunity for training oneself… to give up your bad deeds and build on your good ones.

                        ~~~~~~~~~~ So what to do? ~~~~~~~~~~

Mental Preparation

Prepare yourself mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually for this great month.

Be really excited for this upcoming month and be absolutely determined to do your utmost best and exert yourself for this magnificent month of Forgiveness and Mercy from your Lord. Race with one another and compete with each other for it.

Come on. 
Be excited. Be energized. Get electrified
Get all pumped up and feel vitalized.
After all, this is a time when the gates of Jannah are all open. W..I..D..E open.
And all the gates of Jahannum are closed. Yes, alhamdulillaah CLOSED.
And here is a chance for you to get all your sins forgiven.

Get invigorated and motivated. Realize that the month of Ramadhaan is a month of amazing ibaadah and intense dua, astounding khushoo’ and remarkable hope, sincere taubah and extraordinary istighfaar.
And it is NOT a month of laziness or sleeping, cooking and feasting, or just being plain grouchy and irritable.

Don’t let the thought of the heat or the long day get to you or dampen your spirit. It is only the Shaytaan trying to play with your mind and spoil this wonderful time for you.

Purify your intention

The next thing to do is to purify your niyyah from now: you are going to fast because it is the order of Allaah and NOT because it is culture or your family does so, or even because you want to lose weight. Fasting is a deed absolutely loved by Allaah and you want to please Him. 


يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُواْ كُتِبَ عَلَيْكُمُ الصِّيَامُ كَمَا كُتِبَ عَلَى الَّذِينَ مِن قَبْلِكُمْ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَتَّقُونَ 

 ”O you who believe, fasting has been prescribed for you as it has been prescribed for people before you so that you will (learn how to) attain Taqwa" [al-Baqarah, 2:183]

The Qur’aan and You


Have full intention from now, to read as much of the Qur’aan as you can.
Love the Qur’aan. Build a close relationship with it. Realize that these are the Words of your Lord….Words that will take you to Jannah, your Ultimate Goal.

Don’t just read it with your eyes. Read it with your heart. Let it sink in your soul. Savor the joy and cherish the delight in reading the Book of Allaah. Taste the sweetness of Imaan. Don’t be in a rush to quickly finish the reading. Rather, take your time to ponder over the words and understand the meanings. Don’t think…”when am I going to finish this Surah?” Rather…."when am I going to implement this in my life?" 
Remember, nothing is sweeter and more pleasurable than the ayaat of the Qur’aan that you can understand.

Lots of Sujood

Prepare yourself to do plenty of sujood….long, drawn out sujood, in Taraweeh and Tahajjud. Feel close to your Rabb when you do that sajdah. Realize that this is most honorable position for you…placing the thing you value most, your head, on the ground, humbled before your Creator. You are the slave and He is the Master. You are the ‘abd and He is your Owner.

Dua, Dua and more Dua

Resolve from today, to make a lot of dua. Make a dua list. Prepare it from now. And when you sit down to break your fast, or when you stand in front of your Creator in Salah, in Taraaweeh or in the middle of the night, or any time during the night or day, spread out those hands and ask Al-Kareem, the Most Generous, the One Who gives to one and to all. Make sincere, heartfelt dua whenever and wherever you can. Don’t let a moment slip by. And don’t forget to be thankful to the One Who gave you everything.

True repentance

Be ready from now to do abundant istighfaar, lots and lots of it. Do it every single day. In the darkness of the night, when the whole world is asleep, have full realization, that this is no ordinary time, no time to waste away sleeping

Ar-Rahmaan is calling. Wouldn’t you want to respond?

So knock on the door of the Almighty. He is al-Ghafoor, the Oft-Forgiver and you are nothing….just a weak and sinful human being. Bend your head with shame, and cry. Cry like you’ve never cried before. Ask for His forgiveness. Make firm resolve never, ever, to go back to your sins…never, ever to do those bad deeds again. Go ahead…spread out those hands and be sincere and then be certain He will surely respond.

Determination to change for the better

Most importantly, have firm determination from this moment on, to continue all the good deeds and habits that you will develop during Ramadhaan to continue even after Ramadhaan is over. Remember, you are not a good Muslim just during a special month of the year. Rather you are a Muslim throughout the three hundred and sixty five days. Use the upcoming month of taqwa and training to coach and develop your nafs, to cultivate virtuous deeds and actions and to give up your bad ones.

Tell me, are you going to let all that hard work of fasting, waking up in the middle of the night, reading all that Qur’aan, standing up for Taraaweeh and prayers, and all that dua go to waste?

aafreenfaiz:

Abu Umaamah (R.A.) said: I said: ‘O Messenger of Allah (saw), tell me of an action by which I may enter Paradise’. He said: ‘Take to Fasting, there is nothing like it.’ [Imam Nasai’, Ibn Hibbaan, Al-Haakim, Saheeh]

Aku tak tahu apakah pesonanya yang memikat
atau….mungkin akalku yang tidak lagi di tempat

Keindahannya pangkal segala keindahan
Cinta bukan karena keindahan dan yang tampak dimata
tetapi…. karena yang menyatukan hati dan jiwa

Ada getaran yang merasuki jiwa yang murah hati
laiknya getaran dahan karena angin yang sepoi-sepoi

Kau lihat ada getaran halus di badannya
seakan kau memberinya apa yang diminta

Engkaulah pembantai setiap pemabuk cinta
pilihlah untuk jiwamu siapa yang kau pilih

Terimalah maafku agar tumbuh cinta abadi
usah berkata dihadapanku saat aku emosi
aku lihat ada cinta dan sikap yang menyakitkan di hati
jika keduanya berpadu secepat itu pula cinta akan pergi

Cintamu bersemi apa pun dirimu
tak peduli keadaanmu dulu dan kini
kau tak peduli padaku dan aku pun begitu
siapa tak pedulikan dirimu hendak memuji
aku menyukai mereka sekalipun kau seperti musuhku
penilaianku terhadapmu sama terhadap mereka kau menilai
kudapatkan kenikmatan jika ada yang melecehkanmu
biarkan orang mencelaku karena cinta telah terpatri

Andaikan kau berkata, “Terjunlah ke bara api”
kutahu itu karena maumu dan penguat jalinan
saat itu aku kan terjun dan injakkan kaki
entah itu karena saranmu atau hendak menyesatkan
kalaupun itu adalah kejahatan yang engkau ingini
aku pun tersenyum jika terhadapmu aku bisa mencelakakan

Dia mengobral kata tentang dirimu
minuman dihidangkan dan bekal dilupakan
dia mempunyai cahaya bersinar di hadapanmu
di balik pinggungmu kata-katanya menyakitkan

Kujenguk kekasih yang sedang sakit
lalu aku pun sakit karena belas kasihan
dia pun datang menjenguk
sakitpun sirna karena saling pandang

Ya Rabb kusibukkan dia dengan cintaku
seperti Engkau sibukkan hatiku dengan cintanya
agar menjadi ringan apa yang bersemayam di hatiku

Aku memohon kepada Dzat yang membalikkan keinginan
hasratku kepadamu dn hasratmu kepadaku
timpakan cobaan padamu dan seperti aku yang kena cobaan
atau biarkan cinta mengalir di hatiku

Dua matamu menjadi saksi kehangatan cinta
kau dapatkan apa yang juga telah kudapatkan

Aku dan dia mengigau menyebut-nyebut nama
kami menyelami sepi malam yang menjadi saksi kami
saat terbangun dia melihatku ada disampingnya
saat aku terbangun begitu pula yang kualami
kami satu dalam persamaan cinta
sekalipun dia sabar dan tak begitu pun aku

Orang yang kau harap jemu pada dirimu
dicipta untuk mencintaimu seperti cintamu padanya

Kerinduan semakin melecut suatu waktu
jika jarak sebelumnya saling berdekatan

tiada lagi kesah saat bersanding wanita
kesah itu hadir saat berjauhan dengannya

Dia katakan seribu kali aku memeluknya
apa kau kira sudah cukup hanya dengan pelukan?
kukatakan padanya jagalah perasaan cinta
tangis pilu karena hanya di perkataan
apalah arti kenikmatan bagi seorang pemuda
cinta dalam perkataan bagi seorang pemuda
cinta dalam perkataan tak sejalan dengan perbuatan

Cinta dihatiku merebak putih
sungguh celaka jika ia melemah
tiada arti cinta bagiku
jika aliran sungai tak kusapu

Kupeluk dia hatiku semakin dirundung rindu
adakah aku bisa berdekatan dengannya setelah itu?
kucium bibirnya agar hilang gejolak dihati
namun hasrat untuk bersua semakin menjadi-jadi

Kerinduan belum lagi terobatkan
karena dua bibir yang saling berpagutan
hatiku seakan tak pernah padam membara
kecuali setalah jiwa kami bersanding bersama

Aku semakin terlecut cinta jika ada penghalang
karena manusia lebih menyukai sesuatu yang menghalang

Cinta hanyalah sekedar pandangan mata
kerlingan, belai tangan dan gesekan bahu
lembaran surat berisi pujian kata
lebih agung dari ikatan dan pernikahan
jika begitu cintanya
yang dicari hanyalah keturunan

Demi Allah,
tiadalah cinta menawan orang yang dimabuk cinta
melainkan ia akan membelah jiwanya.

resensi dari seorang pembaca di goodreads.

karena di studio tumblr di blokir, ah, sepertinya akan hiatus, atau, paling tidak, akan sangat jarang untuk upload, nulis, dan sharing. sedang berfikir untuk kembali blogging sendiri, mari kita buat personal website.

Yang pertama Syahadat, terus sholat, puasa, lalu zakat, dan yang kelima berangkat naik Pesawat. -Lintang (4tahun).

Bayangkan, anak usia 4 tahun saja sudah tahu kalau haji itu naik pesawat. Idealnya seperti itu memang, meski ada beberapa yang pernah naik kapal, mobil dan bahkan ada yang jalan kaki, saya jamin itu bukan dari Indonesia. :)

Gak percaya cuman dengan 60 menit bisa pergi haji?

Nice try, I found her first diary on her litle notebook.

This is my first, almost 5 months experience being a husband. As some of you might know, I already have a great wife and beautiful daughter. And all praises to Allah, my wife now on going to five months pregnancy. Apart from still young to be a husband, yet, I’ll fight for future & strive for more achievements for my little family. 

"Allah doesn’t charge a soul except (with that within) its capacity… (Al Baqarah 286)

Showing your Integrity by doing an ant thing, not only an elephant thing, even others not seeing it, at least be ashame with your heart and a little tiny thing called: MORALITY!
