Break Time

Alhamdulillah.. All praises are for Allah…

Things have improved significantly these past two days. The earlier confrontation actually did a lot of good, and now, things are getting back to normal. Allah.. Thank you…

Anyway, Ramadhan is coming to an end.. I just cannot believe how fast time flies. In a few days, all Muslims brothers and sisters will be celebrating Eid-ul-Fitri. I have taken a long break this time, and altogether, I will be with my family for 11 days. Cool.. (although I did take home with me a significant amount of office work to be completed over these 11 days!)

The last day at work yesterday wasn’t very productive at all for me. I spent half of the day clearing my mailbox, and the rest of the day packing up things. I guess everyone was in the mood for a holiday anyway.. We had a meeting early in the morning but the boss was in a terrible mood, so he was rather annoying. I just had to brush aside all that he said, and just agreed with whatever he said. After the meeting, I realized that I really deserve this long break from work!

I will not be updating this blog for sometime I guess.. no.. I will be updating this blog when I find the time over this holiday season..

Till then… enjoy.

I have never felt this sad before. Not even when my beloved grandmother passed away. This is worse than worse. I cannot even begin to describe how down I’m feeling at the moment. I felt so betrayed, so unappreciated, so lousy despite the fact that I was the one who wanted to have the confrontation. But then, I never expected it to turn out this way. Although I knew that I have won the battle, but I still feel bad. I cannot believe that I have made the decision to end everything.

How can I ever face this alone? Allah.. please give me strength especially in this holy month of Ramadhan……

I was browsing through an old Quran of mine which I bought in 1996. During my stay in Melbourne, I used to refer to that Quran a lot because it had the translations. I used it heavily, especially when I attended Islamic classes which were held every weekend. The pages are so full of my handwritings! And I can still remember the sister who used to lead these classes, her name is Aminah Vanderdrift. Masha Allah.. a very pious and committed sister.

Anyway, I was struck by this verse in the Holy Quran..

“Know that the life of this world is only play and diversion and pageantry and boasting among you, and rivalry in wealth and children. It is as a rain, which brings forth growth pleasing th etillers, then it withers and you see it turning yellow, and it becomes straw. And in the Hereafter there is a painful chastisement, and forgiveness from Allah and His good pleasure, and the life of this world is only the enjoyment of illusion….. (57:20)”

And I have been thinking a lot for the past few days… How much time do I spend in remembrance of Allah??

A Short Note

I have been back since Thursday, but I just did not have the time to post something on this blog. All I can is that it was an unforgettable experience. I would love to get a chance to return to that place again. Serious.

Meanwhile, work is piling up at the office.. so I’d be busy for the next few days.

My other half has a job interview today, so all the best sweetheart. May Allah help our family in this blessed month of Ramadhan.
