Alhamdulilah today i had a wonderful experience with 25 amazing kids in the Quran Explorer programme. The beautiful part about this programme is that we are trying to relate The Creator Allah SWT and The Quran with the creations - human, plants,animals, clouds, angel :) Its ironic that we would expained to concept of the universe, animals, planets to our children but we had subtracted the bigger picture in the equation which is The Creator
Umm Hood had came out with an interesting syllabus to connect the Kids with The Quran through The Quran itself. Alhamdulilah she prepared an amazing mind mapping to illustrate each topic by only focusing on one verse in the Quran. I’m honoured to have the chance to learn part of the syllabus and being able to share first hand with the kids.
Today Teacher Aminah and I had to explained the concept of Clouds to the kids. and Alhamdulilah at first we have asked the kids to identify different types of cloudes ..i thank Allah for providing me abundant of clouds today :)) We explained to them a little bit about the formulation of the clouds through an ayah in the Quran (Surah al Nuur : 43) We also highligted that the Clouds also worship Allah and it gives us benefits like rain,shade and it makes the sky beautiful.. Later we had fun activities through creating clouds from blue paper and cotton :) and the amazing part was that in the end all of them were given cotton candy :)
alhamdulilah some of the kids exhibits exemplary behaviour which i know that it is not possible for them to behave in this manner unless it is being shown to them by their parents or it is being developed from the surroundings..our younger generations is in need of real role models..they need real examples…and who else, if its not us?
May Allah swt bless these kids and their parents and make them beneficial to this Ummah :)
Alhamdulilah, today I met my lecturer to ask her about the possibility of getting scholarship from UIA to pursue masters and phd abroad and come back and work as a lecturer. She told me for now, the department is at full capacity and they are not sponsoring anymore students. To be honest, I was a bit sad. I can’t imagine myself working as an auditor, running around to meet clients to audit their report or working from day to night doing repetitive task. But alhamdulilah Allah swt gives us answers when we go forward and take action. Whether it is a No or a Yes, that is not the issue. What i don’t want is these words at the back of my mind, saying “I could have at least tried….” or “I could have been there….”At least now i know, I tried and it is Allah’s decreed that my riqk is not here.
At least, now you can move on with the peace of mind Insha’allah.
Allah will gives More eventually…
When you disobey Allah swt in any way (not praying, listening to Music, not lowering ur gaze) you will find yourself committing sins again and again, not releasing that it is in the disobedience of Allah swt that weakens your iman to fight against the temptations and the whisper of shaytan…
Shame series with Nouman Ali Khan
Da’wah is for Family too
Two years back, the was no way out for this matter. But today was a prove for me, that we will definitely see how things would gradually turn out to be better. We might feel hurt before, frighten to be broken or to left, but somehow through the pain we learnt that this desperation blissful love doesn’t necessary gives the happiness ‘inside’. And that was the only purpose of why Allah swt wud at times delay in response to our Dua’a.
For me, He didn’t delay it. He wants to give it. At the time, just right. When our hearts would finally see, it is only through Him that we would be happy. Not through the ‘things’
So every time we break again. We know that this pain doesn’t meant to hurt, it was meant to heal :)
So I walked up straight. A bit shaken. But for the first time, it didn’t fear me ‘inside’.

Identify The Person’s Standing first
“Verily the one who guides someone to do good is the like who does it in reward” [Sahih Al Bukhari]
I have always wondered,how does one engage inda’wah? Does it only mean that I have to participate in a particular program? What happens after the program has ended, can I still engage in da’wah outside the program? when I’m at university or at home? The question that I always asked myself is ‘How?’ There were times that I have this ‘lazy’ attitude with our own family, and probably because the misunderstanding I had of what da’wah really means. What I learnt as a child from the lives Prophet Muhammad saw and his companion was more about how they invite other people to Islam, the hardship, the battle without also emphasis that their affairs at home are also da’wah.
The first part of the class had thought me a valuable lesson and that is,“if we help someone to improve, that is da’wah”. Little things like teaching my little sister tajwid, encourage my brother to attend the halaqah with me, do gardening with my aunty; this is da’wah too. Encouraging the closest people around me to do good deeds and bringing the change everyday in our own homes…
[Don’t forget your family – your presence does a bring a change in them somehow Insha’Allah]
After finishing the course - Fiqh of Da’wah, one of my friends was eager to do da’wah at a particular university since it will provide us the platform to interact with wide range of non muslim. Her idea was to collaborate with a organization at the university and open a booth during peak hours to invite people to Islam.
However the president of the organization was a bit reluctant because his committee is not open to this kind of activities. She was a bit upset at first, but I suggested that probably they didn’t reject the idea rather the committee is not ready to invite people to Islam. Being in a university where the muslim are the minority, there were barely any Islamic programs for the Muslim students itself. It would be preferably to suggest Islamic Programs for the committee first before engaging in an open da’wah program to invite others to Islam. Insha’Allah.
Lesson learnt : Don’t jump to conclusion, try to identify the person’s standing first and your advice/suggestions/ ideas should start from there
Allah knows best
