What I missed to see before:

The days are created by Allah with the sun shining bright, like there aren't going to be nights.
Even in the rainy days, there will still be light.

And the nights...yes, the nights are dark. much much darker than the days.
But then, there is the moon. no matter how hidden or how small...there it is, every night providing what amount of light Allah wills for that night.

The days and nights. like happiness and troubles. Are created for those who think. Masha Allah..

In the years of my life, with aaaalllll those days and nights..not once before have I realized that Allah, does not leave us in total darkness. No matter how little light there is, there will always be light. One just has to look for it in times of what feels like..blinding darkness.

Insha Allah.

"And for those who fear Allah, He (ever) prepares a way out. And He provides for him from (sources) he never could imagine. And if anyone puts his trust in Allah, sufficient is (Allah) for him. For Allah will surely accomplish His purpose; verily, for all things has Allah appointed a due proportion." At-Talaq, verses 2,3



Guide us Ya Allah. for we aren't the ones who create light, neither are we the ones who create happiness.

My right to complain.

If one had Einstein as his supervisor, and then given a truck of workload. Would he groan in Eistein's face? He would simply accept, awestruck by the fact that he is being supervised by one of the epitomes of intelligence, one cannot deny.

When an examination takes place, no unnecessary speaking or actions take place. Everyone behaves so appropriately that any slight misconduct is noticed by everyone in the examination hall.

But everyday, we find things to complain about. In the face of our God. The Almighty All-Wise All-Hearing All-Seeing Great God. Instead of bowing down in gratefulness and patience, we complain...and without shame too. About the weather, studies, food, work. Everything. But we know He watches us, listens to all times. And to think, it is He who provides all that we complain about. It is a part of His plan for the best. Yet He listens to us complaining about every little gift of challenge, of hardship we fail to notice.

Everyday, we speak as we wish..regardless of things being true or not, necessary or unimportant , using language we will never use with anyone respectable, let alone noble. It is nice to ponder upon the fact that a very knowledgeable and practising religious teacher does not speak the way a mob does.

Would we speak differently and act differently had we understood how noble are the recorders(Raqib and Atid, the angels) in the eyes of Allah? 'Kiraaman kaatibin' they are described as in the Quran. The noble recorders. A statement by the God so great, that nothing can be compared with Him.

This God called them noble.

Noblemen in human terms are people around kings and queens with mountains of richness and great descendence. We arent talking human terms at all in this issue but in terms infinitely greater.

And needless to note, these noble creations accompany all times.

..................................... we are weaklings. Ungrateful and rude weaklings that You bestow with mercy and love everyday at all times.

Guide us Ya Allah. To goodness in dunia and akhirah.

From Nottingham to Derby,with love...

CRM 2009 presents...

Nottingham's own trio set on a 35km cycling trip to Derby. They have voluntarily come up to the CRM team to help raise enough funds to buy medical supplies and other humanitarian needs of the poor in Cambodia.

As eager as they are to help the cause, we, the CRM team will do our best to visit house-to-house around Nottingham's student housing area to drop a sponsorship form, for each household's convenience. These sponsorship forms (hopefully,together with your contribution) will then be collected in roughly a week's time Insha Allah.

For households that wish to sponsor but the CRM team aren't able to reach due to various unfortunate reasons, please be happy to transfer the money to the account stated in the poster.

Take-home message:

Sponsor them, and make their cause your cause too.

"Enlightening the hopes of Cambodia"
