PURPOSE OF LIFE

Shaykh Mendes shared in his talk that Allah has given each and everyone of us a purpose in life. It is our duty to seek our true purpose. More often than not, doing what makes us happy is our reason for living. Our responsibility is to make our goal in life to be of a service to Allah.

Alhamdulillah, I have found my purpose. I believe that I wasn’t named “Nadhirah” by coincident. From the very beginning Allah has placed my purpose in life in my own name, which means, radiance. This itself, is just so beautiful. I hope with my presence I can bring happiness and calmness that gives gratitude to Allah and his Messenger, InshaaAllah.

And I would like to take this opportunity to seek your prayers. I have just submitted my application to pursue my education in counselling, hence, I hope anyone who reads this, put their hands together and make du’a for me. InshaaAllah!

Alhamdulillah. May Allah bless you and your family, whoever you may be (:

PROPHETIC PARENTING

17757484_10155168834249803_1375338677226180473_n

Alhamdulillah. I have always held tightly onto my belief that children need to grow holistically. Yesterday I had the opportunity to learn and have more insights on the Prophetic parenting. It is good to know that our current early childhood management theories and practices are in line with the Prophetic parenting. The only missing portion would be molding the spiritual being of the child.

I’ve benefited much from this workshop, Alhamdulillah. Although I do not have any children, nor am I married, I believe that with this knowledge I am able to put it to good use for the youths and children I am working with, InshaaAllah.

May Allah bless you and your family, whoever you may be.

P.S: Shaykh Mendes was such a great speaker. I think I am in love. hahahaha.

GOLDEN NUGGETS

Chanced upon two pieces of write up shared by a dear friend. In these two writings, there were two golden nuggets (because I just ate a nugget) that I took away.

If someone thanks you, know that he thanks for Allah. He is not offering thanks to your ego. Stay on the outside of this transaction; you are nothing more than a facilitator, in this transaction, a facilitator of this gratitude between the seeker and the Sought, between the servant and the Master.

Taken from HERE.

The more physical light we have, the more we’re able to see. Likewise, the more spiritual light in your heart, the more of the spiritual world we’re able to see. And this is the objective, the primary benefit of Islamic belief, Islamic law, and Islamic spirituality (Iman, Islam, and Ihsan), of knowing the signs of the Day of Judgment – so that more Light comes into your heart so that you can see the world as it truly is, and you can understand the Universe as it truly is.

Taken from HERE.

In a nutshell, these two articles talked about believers as only a vassal in this world that relays the greatness of Allah and about how we are able to understand our true existence by increasing the spiritual light in our hearts.

Everyone should read these articles. I had such an enlightening moment and realised how little my presence is in the world the Al-Mighty created. SubhanAllah. May Allah bless us with sincere hearts and right intention to serve and obey His commands and may He bless you and your family, whoever you may be (:

FEMINISM

Feminism is about gender equality. But can men and women ever be equal? Just like how you aren’t able to judge the ability of a fish to climb trees, it’s cynical to say men and women should be equal.

Women nowadays are driven, I applaud. But men and women can never equal, even biologically we are very much different. However, we often forget that in Islam, men are the maintainers of women as women holds a much more hefty responsibility of raising the children of the future.

Women shouldn’t be scared to take a step back and focus on themselves, building their Iman. We are talking about shaping the future generation and it is our duty as women to teach our young boys the importance of respecting women and protecting them, not because women are weak, but out of respect for women.

We do not need gender equality. We need the Ummah to know their responsibilities as a man and a woman. Honestly, I am not entirely sure of what exactly is my responsibility as a woman but InshaaAllah, learning about the lives of the wives of the Prophets will give me an insight.

InshaaAllah I will share more about what it means to be a woman in my next post. In the meantime, girls, let’s chill okay. May Allah bless you and your family, whoever you may be (:

NPMSS PLUG IN FOC 2013 TEAM FNB: Fiq, Ama, Isa, Madey. Sayang lah sangat dengan korang!

Alhamdulillah! So blessed to be given a chance to be part of Plug In 2013 again, in Team FnB! Many new friendships were forged and old friendships strengthened throughout this journey. It’s really unfortunate that I am only able to attend for a day in the actually camp. Though I badly wanted to go for all three days. But Allah has his reasons. Nonetheless, I really love our team, our spirit.

With every job at hand, it was never easy, but we made it a point to make it fun. Every single second spent with the team was all filled with joy and laughter. We all played our roles well. Everyone was being so enthusiastic and helpful despite feeling tired and fatigue. Marha marha team FnB!

May Allah bless our friendship till Jannah, InshaaAllah, Ameen! ❤
