hmm Ramadan is almost over. this means i can eat during the day again, lol…
but this year its like to fast, fasting, lol. As i grow older i begin to enjoy fasting more than hari raya, lol. when i was young i would be so exited that Ramadan is ending. now is like, why has Ramadan ended so quickly. its strange especially if you are not a Muslim. As you begin to embrace the meaning of Ramadan. you find that its not about the celebration at its end but the time spent to reach it. Ramadan is a time for sacrifice and patience, it teaches self discipline and empathy. Ramadan brings the best out of people and expose the weakness of us. it shows ourselves, how much we can tolerate and how far we are willing to go.
a few of the great things to look forward too during Ramadan is breaking fast, lol. no its not the food. but the company that surrounds you while you consume it. then there is the nights leading to its end, and the ramadan bazaar.
now that its the last day of Ramadan its a sad day indeed.
decided to reopne this blog after a few days of closing it. dont know why but i feel like blogging. curently blogging with out looking at the keyboard but its kind of difficult.
Without correcting mistakes
hmm as rou wikk soon find oir that mosr of rhe mistaje are jusr a ket awat frin the acruak ket
but i am improving as i go along, haha, its still better than my hand writing. its still during the fasting month. for some reason this year seems to be easier and more fun. to a point that i am enjoying it more than i am anticipating eid.
for this month i have reached my financial limits, lol. cant get out very much and have tried to keep myself busy. results were less than what i had expected but still i am thankful.now its time to move on for the future.
the real post begins here.
sometime we look at our life, and say that it isn’t fair. i am not here to argue that piece, haha. i am here to affirm it. no matter how you look at life, it will never be fair. that guy has better memory, that guy is taller, he was born rich, another guy has no parents, that guy has 4 wives, she has a nice figure, he won the lottery. its just isnt fair to the guy who looks at these situations. but what abt the guy who has one or more of those stuffs or in those situation. they would probably think life still isnt fair becuz they do not have what others have.
so what should you do? well for starters you can try to strive for those things, and try to make life a little more fairer. but most importantly is that u must accept it. accept that others are born with more and others are born with less. make do with what life has given you. one thing that is fair, is that everyone lives, isnt fair.
put forth your hands. look at ur fingers. none of the are of equal length. but each of them is needed and have their strengths and purposes. like the world we offer our strengths and let others complement it with theirs. than we will have a working hand, society in this case.
Finally fell sick, since a long long time, lol. currently just fever and my whole body aches. BUT IS THIS GOING TO STOP ME???? NO!!! i will wake up in the morning all HEALED!!! HEAR ME WORLD.
and god help me please
P.S fever can cause people to temporally lose their sanity
to got home and helped my mother prepare some food that people ordered. then played with my cousin, lol. she is playing with an elephant shaped plant waterer. nothing much happen today, lol.
today hand washed a piece of fabric that i bought near 4 years in mecca. its a square piece of cloth abt 1meter in width. the fabric is woven in japan. its full of memory of when i was there, i nvr go out of my room without that piece of cloth
thats all for now…
A few hours ago, one of my great uncles passed on. a few days back an uncle passed on. one thing that is certain in all life, is death. I am taught that the time of our death, to the very fractions of a second had been made certain. that there is no way it can be extended or shortened.
but i’m here to talk about funerals. In Islam, a funeral is more than just a last gathering for th parted. it is more than a session of mourning and prayers. it is a reminder for those that are living. that we are here today for a short period of time. a few days back my uncle passed. it sad but i suppose i still need to live. i helped prepare his body for burial along side his son. as we touch his soulless body, it reminds us that we are only mortal. one day i will be lying there and someone else will be preparing me as i am preparing my uncle then.
once he is ready he is wrapped in the three layers of white linen and a layer of cotton. then we carried him out to be kissed a last time by his love ones. it will be sad if no one was there to gather ard you for a last time. so then we prepare for prayer. yet another reminder to us to pray before we are prayed for, to stand behind the imam before u lay before him. we proceed to bury him. and as i pass before the graves of those who have came before, i know that one day i will be lying there with them.
my father always say that funerals are nvr for the dead they are for the living. there is saying that we are born crying when those ard us will smile with joy, and when we depart our soul smile while those ard u weep for their lost.
thats all for now…
today is a friday, last day of the week so its always a good day. next i went to catch a movie today so theres another reason to be happy about. and another thing is today is presentation day!! lol icing on the cake.
