Nggak Lirik Kanan-Kiri

So fokus saja lah sm diri sndiri. Berusaha jungkir balik utk mjd terbaik yg kita bisa tanpa melirik2 ke kanan kiri. Maksimalkan apa yang allah kasih ke kita dan bersinarlah dg yg ada. Tau kenapa kebun bunga bisa terlihat indah? Krn masing-masing bunga sibuk merekahkan kelopaknya, tanpa berpikir utk berkompetisi dg bunga sebelah.

“I’m a queen. With a handsome king. In a big castle. With perfect heirs. Servants. Lots of money, food to eat. My life is heaven. If u look from the window. If u look closer, my tiara is fake diamonds, the king is a robot & the castle is made of ice”.

“People can make you happy. But at the end of the day, when you tell them goodnight and it’s just you, you realise you need to be able to make yourself happy.

Nobody was there for you the way you were there for you. People can leave but you will never leave you.

You need to be enough for you. You need to love you. You need to spend time alone and get to know who you really are.

The sooner you realise you are truly a gift to you, you’ll find that happiness you’re always searching for through others, through you.”

I do not Worship Vogue or the Sunday Times

For centuries, in every time and every place, mankind has asked questions about the meaning of life. And, in our society of instant gratification and material ease, even when all one’s dreams come true and all one’s wishes have been granted, there is always that gnawing feeling, that nagging question – is this all there is? It is as if the need of thw human soul is so deep that no amount of good times and enjoyment will ever fill it completely. So, sometimes, the man or woman who ‘has everything’cries alone at night in despair or seeks comfort in a pull, in a bottle or a fine white powder, anything to quench that insatiable thirst for something meaningful, something real.

But we had found something that gave meaning to every waking moment, something that made our lives purposeful and focused. Some of us were pleased to have left the slavish following of society’s whimps.

In a way, we had taken a very strong stand against the prevailing culture. We had said, ‘No, I am not going to live my life according to your trends and  dictates. I am not going go lose myself in our enjoyments and distractions.  I am not going to dreas according your fashions. I am a Muslim and I worship Allah, not Vogue or Sunday Times.’

Jangan Bangga

Janganlah kalian bangga ketika sudah hafal al qur’an, karena memang itu belum ada apa-apanya di kalangan penuntut ‘ilmu, dan janganlah kalian bangga ketika sudah hafal hadits arbain, karena itu sudah sangat lazim di kalangan penuntut ‘ilmu, janganlah kalian menjadi sombong dengan sedikitnya ‘ilmu yang kalian miliki… karena bukannya ‘ilmu itu akan bertambah malah bisa jadi akan berkurang. hafal qur’an hanyalah pintu untuk antum memasuki dunia para ‘ulama, hadits arbain hanyalah dasar pijakan pertama antum memasuki dunia para ‘ulama, namun kalian belum pantas disebut ‘ulama…
