He knows.. :')

Allah Knows

By Zain Bhika and Dawud Wharnsby Ali

When you feel all alone in this world
And there's nobody to count your tears
Just remember no matter where you are
Allah knows, Allah knows.

When you're carrying a monster load
And you wonder how far you can go
With every step on that road you take
Allah knows, Allah knows.

(Cause) No matter what, inside or out
There's one thing of which there's no doubt
Allah knows, Allah knows.
And whatever lies in the heavens and the Earth
Every star in this whole universe
Allah knows, Allah knows.

When you find that special someone
Feel your whole life has barely begun
You can walk on the moon shout it to everyone
Allah knows, Allah knows.

When you gaze with love in your eyes
Catch your glimpse of paradise
And you see your child take the first breath of life
Allah knows, Allah knows.

(Cause) No matter what, inside or out
There's one thing of which there's no doubt
Allah knows, Allah knows.
And whatever lies in the heavens and the Earth
Every star in this whole universe
Allah knows, Allah knows.

When you lose someone close to your heart
See your whole world fall apart
And you try to go on but it seems so hard
Allah knows, Allah knows.

See we all have a path to choose
Through the valleys and hills we go
With the ups and the downs never fret never frown
Allah knows, Allah knows.

Chorus 2x
(Cause) No matter what, inside or out
There's one thing of which there's no doubt
Allah knows, Allah knows.
And whatever lies in the heavens and the Earth
Every star in this whole universe
Allah knows, Allah knows.

(Cause) No matter what, inside or out
There's one thing of which there's no doubt
Allah knows, Allah knows.
And whatever lies in the heavens and the Earth
Every star in this whole universe
Allah knows, Allah knows.

Every grain of sands in every desert plants
He knows
Every sheet of palm, every closed hand
He knows
Every sparkling tear on every eye lash
He knows
Every thought I had and every word I share
He knows
Allah knows

"i am a traveller.."

[just a display picture]

and when imam al-shafie (rahimullah) reached forty (years of age) he began to walk with a staff, and when questioned about it used to say: "to remind myself that i am a traveller"

what would you do?..

i smile,
and you ask, "what makes you so happy?"
but my heart screams, "you are, you are the reason for my happiness"
so, if you knew,
what would you do?

i cry,
and you ask, "what makes you so sad?"
but my heart weeps, "you are, you are the reason for my sadness"
so, if you knew,
what would you do?

[please tell me, tell me, what would you do...]

the light.

when light engages the heart, it causes an illumination of the path, a purification of the consciousness, an enlightenment of the intellect and an establishment of the foundations of dhikr and shukr and of beautiful worship...

a poem to Him..

i am a burning candle;
You are the morning light,
if i do not see You, i burn;
if i see You, i vanish.
this is my condition in
separation and closeness.
i can bear neither separation nor proximity.

its not de end of de road yet..

There's always going to be another mountain
I'm always going to want to make it move
Always going to be an uphill battle
Sometimes you going to have to lose
Ain't about how fast I get there
Ain't about what's waiting on the other side
It's the climb

The struggles I'm facing
The chances I'm taking
Sometimes they knock me down but
No I'm not breaking
The pain I'm knowing
But these are the moments that
I'm going to remember most yeah
Just got to keep going
And I
I got to be strong
Just keep pushing on

There's always going to be another mountain
I'm always going to want to make it move
Always going to be an uphill battle
Sometimes you going to have to lose
Ain't about how fast I get there
Ain't about what's waiting on the other side
It's the climb

There's always going to be another mountain
I'm always going to want to make it move
Always going to be an uphill battle
Sometimes you going to have to lose
Ain't about how fast I get there
Ain't about what's waiting on the other side
It's the climb

Keep on moving
Keep climbing
Keep the faith
It's all about
It's all about
The climb
Keep the faith
Keep your faith

Sebenarnya hati ini cinta kepada Mu
Sebenarnya diri ini rindu kepada Mu
Tapi aku tidak mengerti
Mengapa cinta masih tak hadir
Tapi aku tidak mengerti
Mengapa rindu belum berbunga

Sesungguhnya walau ku kutip
Semua permata di dasar lautan
Sesungguhnya walau ku siram
Dengan air hujan dari tujuh langit Mu
Namun cinta tak kan hadir
Namun rindu tak akan berbunga

Ku cuba menghulurkan
Sebuah hadiah kepada Mu
Tapi mungkin kerana isinya
Tidak sempurna tiada seri

Ku cuba menyiramnya
Agar tumbuh dan berbunga
Tapi mungkin kerana airnya
Tidak sesegar telaga kauthar

Sesungguhnya walau ku kutip
Semua permata di dasar lautan
Sesungguhnya walau ku siram
Dengan air hujan dari tujuh langit Mu
Namun cinta tak kan hadir
Namun rindu tak akan berbunga
Jika tidak mengharap rahmat Mu
Jika tidak menagih simpati
Pada Mu ya Allah

Tuhan hadiahkanlah kasih Mu kepadaku
Tuhan kurniakanlah rinduku kepada Mu
Moga ku tahu
Syukur ku adalah milik Mu...

the one..

who will be the one?..
he who reminds me of Him each and every second of the day..

Ibn Abi’d-Dunyâ mentioned that Dâwûd (peace be upon Him) asked Allâh: “What is the least of Your blessings?” Allâh revealed to him: “O Dâwûd, take a breath.” Dâwûd did so, and Allâh told him: “This is the least of My blessings on you.”

Do Muslims date?..

[from : ]

courtship in Islam

From Other Guides

Arranged Marriage II

The most common questions I get from young people are, "Do Muslims date?" and "If they don't date, how do they decide whom to marry?"

"Dating" as it is currently practiced in much of the world does not exist among Muslims -- where a young man and woman (or boy/girl) are in a one-on-one intimate relationship, spending time together alone, "getting to know each other" in a very deep way before deciding whether that's the person they will marry. Rather, in Islam pre-marital relationships of any kind between members of the opposite sex is forbidden.

The choice of a marriage partner is one of the most important decisions a person will make in his or her lifetime. It should not be taken lightly, nor left to chance or hormones. It should be taken as seriously as any other major decision in life - with prayer, careful investigation, and family involvement.

So in today's world, how do young people manage? First of all, Muslim youth develop very close friendships with their same-sex peers. This "sisterhood" or "brotherhood" that develops when they are young continues throughout their lives. When a young person decides to get married, the following steps often take place:

  • Young person makes du'a for Allah to help him or her find the right person
  • The family enquires, discusses, and suggests candidates. They consult with each other to narrow down potential prospects. Usually the father or mother approaches the other family to suggest a meeting.
  • Couple agrees to meet in chaperoned, group environment. Umar related that the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said, "Not one of you should meet a woman alone unless she is accompanied by a relative (mahram)" (Bukhari/Muslim). The Prophet (peace be upon him) also reportedly said, "Whenever a man is alone with a woman, Satan (Shaytan) is the third among them" (Tirmidhi). When young people are getting to know each other, being alone together is a temptation toward wrongdoing. At all times, Muslims should follow the commands of the Qur'an (24:30-31) to "lower their gaze and guard their modesty...." Islam recognizes that we are human and are given to human weakness, so this rule provides safeguards for our own sake.
  • Family investigates candidate further - talking with friends, family, Islamic leaders, co-workers, etc. to learn about his or her character.
  • Couple prays salat-l-istikhara (prayer for guidance) to seek Allah's help in making a decision.
  • Couple agrees to pursue marriage or part ways. Islam has given this freedom of choice to both young men and women - they cannot be forced into a marriage that they don't want.

This type of focused courtship helps ensure the strength of the marriage, by drawing upon family elders' wisdom and guidance in this important life decision. Family involvement in the choice of a marriage partner helps assure that the choice is based not on romantic notions, but rather on a careful, objective evaluation of the compatibility of the couple. That is why these marriages often prove successful.

يَا أَيُّهَا النَّاسُ اتَّقُواْ رَبَّكُمُ الَّذِي خَلَقَكُم مِّن نَّفْسٍ وَاحِدَةٍ وَخَلَقَ مِنْهَا زَوْجَهَا وَبَثَّ مِنْهُمَا رِجَالاً كَثِيرًا وَنسَاء وَاتَّقُواْ اللّهَ الَّذِي تَسَاءلُونَ بِهِ وَالأَرْحَامَ إِنَّ اللّهَ كَانَ عَلَيْكُمْ رَقِيبًا
(Surah An-Nisa, 4; verse 1)

O men! Fear your Lord Who created you from a single being and out of it created its mate; and out of the two spread many men and women. Fear Allah in Whose name you plead for rights, and heed the ties of kinship. Surely, Allah is ever watchful over you.

two roads diverged in a wood, and i.....

The Road Not Taken
By Robert Frost

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

why read the Quran even though we can't understand it?..

Why read the Quran even though we can't understand it?

An old American Muslim lived on a farm in the mountains of eastern Kentucky with his young grandson.
Each morning Grandpa was up early sitting at the kitchen table reading his Quraan.
His grandson wanted to be just like him and tried to imitate him in every way he could.
One day the grandson asked, "Grandpa, I try to read the Quraan just like you but I don't understand it, and what I do understand I forget as soon as I close the book.
What good does reading the Quraan do?" The Grandfather quietly turned from putting coal in the stove and replied, "Take this coal basket down to the river and bring me back a basket of water."
The boy did as he was told, but all the water leaked out before he got back to the house.
The grandfather laughed and said, "You'll have to move a little faster next time," and sent him back to the river with the basket to try again.
This time the boy ran faster, but again the basket was empty before he returned home.
Out of breath, he told his grandfather that it was impossible to carry water in a basket, and he went to get a bucket instead.
The old man said, "I don't want a bucket of water; I want a basket of water.
You're just not trying hard enough," and he went out the door to watch the boy try again.
At this point, the boy knew it was impossible, but he wanted to show his grandfather that even if he ran as fast as he could, the water would leak out before he got back to the house.
The boy again dipped the basket into river and ran hard, but when he reached his grandfather the basket was again empty.
Out of breath, he said, "See Grandpa, it's useless!" "So you think it is useless?" The old man said, "Look at the basket."
The boy looked at the basket and for the first time realized that the basket was different.
It had been transformed from a dirty old coal basket and was now clean, inside and out. "Son, that's what happens when you read the Quraan.
You might not understand or remember everything, but when you read it, you will be changed, inside and out. That is the work of ﷲﺃ in our lives."

“Everything happens for a reason..”

qunut nazilah: translation..

Ya Allah,
kami letakkan Mu di batang leher musuh kami dan
kami berlindung denganMu dari kejahatan mereka.
Ya Allah,
leburkan kumpulan mereka,
kacau bilaukan persatuan mereka,
cerai beraikan pakatan mereka,
goncangkan pendirian mereka,
hantarkan anjing-anjing Mu keatas mereka.
Wahai Tuhan yang Maha Perkasa,

Wahai Tuhan yang Maha Murka,
Ya Allah...
Wahai Tuhan yang menurunkan Al-Quran,
Wahai Tuhan yang menggerakkan awan,
Wahai Tuhan yang menewaskan bala tentera Al-Ahzab,
kalahkan mereka, menangkanlah kami keatas mereka
Amin Ya Rabbal A'lamin....

News: MIddle East

Israel resumes deadly Gaza attacks

Hundreds of Palestinians have been killed and thousands more injured [Reuters]

Violence has resumed in the Gaza Strip after a three-hour lull that allowed beleaguered residents to look for food and fuel.

Al Jazeera's Zeina Awad, reporting from the Israel-Gaza border in the early hours of Thursday, said it was clear that Israeli air attacks had intensified and explosions could be heard over Gaza as the Israeli assault entered its 13th day.

There were reports that the presidential palace in Gaza had been hit as well as police stations. Al Jazeera confirmed that a mosque had been hit, injuring 15 people.

Wednesday's lull was followed by news that Israel's security cabinet had approved an expansion to the offensive in Gaza as part of its stated aim to halt Hamas cross-border rocket attacks.

Offensive to broaden

Despite the onslaught in Gaza, eight rockets were fired from the territory into southern Israel on Wednesday.

Ehud Olmert, the Israeli prime minister, chaired the security cabinet meeting in Jerusalem which "approved continuing the ground offensive, including a third stage that would broaden it by pushing deeper into populated areas," a senior defence official said.

The final decision would be left to Ehud Barak, the Israeli defence minister, the official added.

Israel warned thousands of people in the Rafah zone on the Egyptian border to leave their houses ahead of planned air raids on Thursday.

"You have until 8am [06:00 GMT]," said leaflets which were dropped by the Israeli military.

Witnesses said that a house and a suspected smuggling tunnel were hit in two raids early on Thursday.

At least 700 Palestinians, including 219 children, have died in Gaza since Israel began its assault on December 27. More than 3,080 people have also been wounded.

Seven Israeli soldiers and three civilians have died in the same period.

Onslaught continues

Soon after the three-hour lull on Wednesday, an Israeli air raid on a car in Beit Lahia, near Gaza's northern border with Israel, killed three children and their father, who was described as a civilian by medical workers in the besieged strip.

Palestinians and aid workers in and around Gaza City had used Wednesday's brief respite to recover dead bodies, treat the wounded, and gather much-needed supplies in and around Gaza City.

The military announced a three-hour lull in fighting to open a 'humanitarian corridor' [AFP]
Peter Lerner, an Israeli military spokesman, announced "offensive" military action across the strip would be suspended for three hours every alternating day, although the timings may vary.

Despite this, Israeli air raids were reported in other parts of the Palestinian territory during Wednesday's announced timeframe of 1pm-4pm.

Most of Wednesday's clashes occurred in northern Gaza, with explosions reported in Jabalya and Beit Lahia.

In Gaza City, four people were killed and seven injured outside a mosque in the Sheik Radwan neighbourhood.

Two people were also killed earlier when the Zeitoun district was targeted from the air.

Further south, air raids hit the towns of Khan Yunis and Rafah, where over 20 houses were destroyed.

Around 15,000 Palestinians have had to flee the fighting so far, but have found few places safe, with even schools converted into UN shelters being hit.

An Israeli attack on a school run by the UN Relief and Works Agency in the northern town of Jabaliya on Tuesday left 43 Palestinians dead and around 100 wounded.

Israeli officials said missiles were fired from the UN building and that their troops were simply returning fire.

Heba, a Gaza resident and mother of two, told Al Jazeera there was no place left in Gaza that could be considered safe.

"What happened in the school was a hugely offensive and inhumane thing. We never expected that people who sought refuge in a UN building would be attacked and killed," she said.


from this disturbing news (sourced from Al Jazeera), we must come to terms that the Isrealis who are performing these inhumane attacks on helpless and innocent civilians are way passed the boarder, their actions are unacceptable
and unforgiveable!!..
and in these such times, we as the brothers and sisters of the palestinians should play a role or contribute a part(big or small) in helping them either at the utmost (helping them directly) or simply by indirect way is to apply the recitation of qunut nazilah* in our daily the time of the propet, there was mass killing of the qurra's (sahabah of the prophet s.a.w who memerized the quran) in sumur Ma'unah..because of that, he (s.a.w) recitated qunut nazilah for one whole month..

*recited after the ruku'(iktidal), during the last rakaat of the prayer..generally it was done in times of hardships, calamities, etc

reminder to self (VII)...

look ahead...
move ahead...

there's no turning back...
there's no turning back....

one step at a time....
a step at a time..

obstacles might come,
and we might fall..
but that's life..

its not how we fall but...
its how we get up...

don't give up..
don't give up....
don't give up........


dear friends.....

i miss u.....
each and everyone of u.....


dear friends.....

we might be distance, miles or even countries apart....
but my remembrance of u (insyaAllah) will be there, inside my heart...
