Where did we go wrong?

Bismillah Something a friend said sort of hit me in a way. Just recently we went for a leadership course oversea. During the event, at one point, we were asked to jot down in a form our day of departure, the time and the airport that we will be using, by one of the committees. […]

His gifts

Bismillah Sometimes His gifts do not come merely in the forms of wealth. Nor in the forms of people. Sometimes they come in the form of moments. A fleeting moment you’d wish would last for eternity. Because the happiness is not something that you could see nor touch, but something that is kept sacred in […]


Bismillah We had an event recently, my team and I. Being active in a mosue’s youth group, programmes upon programmes came rattling like a train on schedule is a norm. So recently, we had to meet up to settle the prizes and gifts which we will be handing out to the public for the said […]


Bismillah To You, my Rabb, I cry! My fear, my hopes; no lies, For You always listen, patiently Lovingly, and longingly… You understand the unspoken pain That others may look with disdain, And for that, my Lord, come what may, I will always, always Go back to You, no matter how Far this heart has […]

Perfection exists

Bismillah Perfection exists in this world and that is the Kalam of Allah SWT; the Qur’an. And when it enters our hearts, it fulfills, it purifies, it heals. Rayyan Islam

I have heard of stories…

Bismillah I have heard of stories Stories of brave men and women of old Stories of courage remain untold I have heard of stories Stories of great love and sacrifices By the mothers and fathers of the golden yesteryears I have heard of stories Stories of hopes, dreams and great visions By sons and daughters […]

A rough voyage

It had been a tough voyage for the ship. Time after time their small vessel was attacked, ambushed and haphazardly bombarded by rolls of merciless gigantic waves. But the crew did not lose spirit. A crack here, they rushed to patch it up quickly. Seawater coming in, they took their pails and shoved it out […]

The superwoman that I am not

Bismillah I’m sorry if you think I’m a superwoman – I’m not. I fall, and I cry. I hurt. I’m sorry if you think I’m a supermachine I can do it all – I can’t. I messed up, I got tired, I broke down. I’m sorry if you think I’m the sun who’s always shining […]

Expectation / criteria

Bismillah There is a common scene, especially if we arrive at a new place, and suddenly there’s a call of nature. Dreadfully we start to make a beeline for the toilet, but will not enter before nudging our friend to enter first. And when she is finally out, we would not not ask that million-dollar […]

On maturity

Bismillah Maturity is not one thing, rather it is a harmonious blend of many things such as physical maturity (puberty), mental maturity (how you view the world), emotional maturity (how you control your emotions), spiritual maturity (how you are with God), material maturity (having survival skills, like cooking), intrapersonal maturity (how you are with yourself), […]
