~ Happy Birthday Son ~

Happy 2th birthday to our dearest son,Kasyful Nur Ikhwan.
There is no word to say how happy I am as a mother.
I will kept you and pray for you forever…I promise..…Yes, when I saw my lovely son was growing up day by day and health…And without I realize, He is 2 years old now…Yes, today is his birthday.
Happy birthday, my son..
Ummi and ayah always love u dear

If I was sitting down to write
A birthday card to you today
I would search my heart to find the words
I'd really like to say
From the moment of your birth
You've been the treasure of my heart
You are my son, my dearest one
The best that heaven could impart
No greater joy my life could bring
Than to give my life away
For all I give, is then to you
My heart of love on your birthday

God bless you my dearest
On this your special day

You have always been so special
in all the things you've said and done.
I am so very proud of you simply
because you are my son.

It's easy to feel nostalgic about the little boy you used to be.
It's even easier to feel proud of the one you've become.
You're a son to be proud of,
you outgrew my lap, but never my heart!

Son, you bring pride to the family, joy to the heart.
You are a blessing and a love forever!
It is truly a gift to have a son like you who grows more precious with the years!

A son is:
the happy memories of the past,
the joyful moments of the present,
the hope and promise of the future.
Son, my pride and joy, as a friend and as a boy.

Nasi berlauk...

Masih lagi teringat dulu2...sarapan yg biasa makan kt kg bila pagi2 ,nasi inilah..Kalu kt Kelantan,kitorang panggil nasi berlauk..Walaupun lauk biasa ja,tapi betul2 menyelerakan.If xcaya,tanya la hubby aku...tapi dia suka lauk ayam..Nasi ni yg buat best ialah bila makan bersama sambal cili tue..

Dulu2...pbiasanya pagi2 lps subuh lagi ayah dh p kedai cari nasi nih.Kat kg kena p kedai awal pagi cz kl p lambat,alamaknya nasi habis...Aku ingat lagi masa awal2 kawen dulu,hubby terkena jgk kejutan budaya cz pagi2 lagi dh breakfast dlm kul 7 lebih gitu. Iyalah,if kt tempat lain,kul 9/10 am baru b/fast kan...kul 11 pon ada.Tapi lama2 hubby pon dh biasa.

Dah lama tak merasa ns berlauk nie...Nanti blk kg nt,aku nk makan..xsabar btl ni..Lamanya nk blk kg..!

Reaping the benefits of Ramadan

Credit to member aku,Kchik.Dan sumber yang betul ialh dari SINI

In the month of Ramadaan it is very important that we spent a few moments to understand some of the wisdoms and lessons that we can learn from this month of fasting.

Unfortunately, many Muslims come in to this month and they are as a companion of the Prophet, peace be upon him, said: "Let it not be that the day that you fast and the day that you break fast be equal." Meaning, one's behaviour, attitude and outlook are the same whether one fasts or not, i.e. fasting has no effect upon that person. This is why we need to reflect on some of these lessons.

LESSON 1: Gaining Taqwaa

Allaah legislated fasting for gaining taqwaa, "O you who believe, fasting has been prescribed upon you as it has been prescribed upon those before you, so that you may attain taqwaa." (meaning of SoraatulBaqarah (2):183) Taqwaa in this case means to make a shield between oneself and Allaah’s anger and Hellfire. So we should ask ourselves, when we break our fasts, ‘Has this fasting day made us fear Allaah more? Has it resulted that we want to protect ourselves from the hellfire or not?

LESSON 2: Drawing closer to Allaah

This is achieved by reciting and reflecting on Al-Qur’aan during night and day, attending the taraaweeh prayers, remembering Allaah, sitting in circles of knowledge and, for those who can, making `umrah. Also for those who can, making I`tikaaf (seclusion) in the last ten nights of Ramadaan, so as to leave all worldly pursuits and seclude oneself in a masjid just thinking of Allaah, so as to bring oneself closer to Allaah (SWT). When one sins, one feels distant from Allaah. That is why one might find it heard to read the Qur’aan and come to the masjid. However, the obedient worshipper feels closer to Allaah and wants to worship Allaah more, because he is not shy from his sins.

LESSON 3: Acquiring patience and strong will

Allaah has mentioned patience more than seventy times in the Qur’aan and has commanded patience in more than sixteen ways in His Book. So when one fasts, and gives up one’s food and drink, and one’s marital sexual relations for those hours, one learns restraint and patience. This Ummah needs man and women that are strong willed, who can stand upon the Sunnah and the Book of Allah and not waver. We do not need emotional people, who just raise slogans and shout, but when the time comes to stand upon something firm, they cannot do so, they waver.

LESSON 4: Striving for Ihsaan (righteousness and sincerity) and staying away from riyaa’ (showing off)

Ihsaan means to worship Allaah as if one seeks Him, and even though one does not see Him, He sees all. Hasan al-Basree said, "By Allaah, in the last twenty years, I have not said a word or taken something with my hand or refrained to take something with my hand or stepped forth or stepped back, except that I have thought before I have done any action, ‘Does Allaah love this action? Is Allaah pleased with this action?' So when one is fasting, one should gain this quality of watching oneself and also staying away from riyaa’ (showing off). That is why Allah said in a hadeeth qudsee, "Fasting is for Me and I reward it." (al-Bukhaaree) Allaah singles out fasting from all other types of worship saying, "Fasting is for Me", because no one knows whether you are fasting or not, except Allaah. For example, when one is praying or giving charity or making tawaaaf, one can be seen by the people, so one might do the action seeking the praise of the people. Sufyaan ath-Thawree used to spend the nights and the days crying and the people used to ask him, "Why do you cry, is it due to the fear of Allaah? He said, ‘No.’ They said, "Is it due to the fear of the Hellfire?" He said, ‘No. It is not the fear of Hellfire that makes me cry, what makes me cry is that I have been worshipping Allaah all these years and doing scholarly teaching, and I am not certain that my intentions are purely for Allaah.’"

LESSON 5: Refinement of manners, especially those related totruthfulness and discharging trusts.

The Prophet (may Allaah send His blessing and peace upon him) said, "Whoever does not abandon falsehood in word and action, then Allaah (SWT) has no need that he should heave his food and drink." (al-Bukhaaree) What we learn from this, is that we must pay attention to the purification of our manners. The Prophet (may Allaah send His blessing and peace upon him) said, "was sent to perfect good manners." (Maalik) So we must check ourselves, are we following the behaviour of the Prophet (may Allaah send His blessing and peace upon him)? For example: Do we give salaam to those we don’t know and those we do know? Do we follow the manners of Islaam, by telling the truth and only telling the truth? Are we sincere? Are we merciful to the creation?

LESSON 6: Recognizing that one can change for the better

The Prophet (may Allaah send His blessing and peace upon him) said, "Every son of Adam sins and the best of the sinners are those whorepent." (Ibn Maajah) Allaah provides many opportunities to repent to Him and seek His forgiveness. If one was disobedient they can become obedient.

LESSON 7: Being more charitable

Ibn `Abaas said, "The Prophet (may Allaah send His blessing and peace upon him) was the most charitable amongst the people, and he used to be more so in the month of Ramadaan when Jibreel used to meet him on every night of Ramadaan till the end of the month…" (al-Bukhaaree) The Prophet (may Allaah send His blessing and peace upon him) said, "He who gives food for a fasting person to break his fast, he will receive the same reward as him, without nothing being reduced from the fasting person’s reward." (at-Tirmidhee)

LESSON 8: Sensing the unity of the Muslims

The Prophet (may Allaah send His blessing and peace upon him) said, "…Those of you who will live after me will see many differences. Then you must cling to my Sunnah and the Sunnah of the rightly guided khaleefahs. Hold fast to it and stick to it." (Aboo Daawood) In this month we sense that there is a possibility for unity, because we all fast together, we break fast together, we all worship Allah together, and we pray Salaatul-`Eid together. Therefore we sense that the unity of Muslims is possible. It is possible for Muslims to be a single body, but this will only be achieved when obedience is only to Allaah and His Messenger.

LESSON 9: Learning discipline

The Prophet (ma Allaah send His blessing and peace upon him) made us adhere to discipline and strictness, strictness that does not lead to fanaticism or going outside the bounds that Allaah has laid down. One cannot knowingly break the fast before the sunset, as this will not be accepted by Allaah. Muslims should learn to be very strict in their lives, because they are people of an important message, which they mold their lives around.

LESSON 10: Teaching the young to worship Allaah

It was the practice of the people of Madeenah, that during the fast of `Aashooraa (which is now a recommended fast of one day) to get their children to fast with them. When the children would cry of hunger and thirst, their parents would distract their attention by giving them some sort of toy to play with. The children would break their fast with their parents. (as mentioned in al-Bukhaaree).

So the young should be brought to the masjid and they should pray with their parents, so that they are able to get into the habit of becoming worshippers of Allaah. If one does not encourage children to fast when they are young, they will find it very difficult to fast for thirty days at the age of puberty. This is why the Prophet (may Allah send His blessing and peace upon him) said, "Command your children to pray at the age of seven and beat them at the age of ten (if they do not pray." (Haakim)

LESSON 11: Caring for one’s health

Fasting has many medical benefits and it teaches Muslims to take care of their health and too build strong bodies. The Prophet (may Allaah send His blessing and peace upon him) said, "A strong believer is better and is more beloved to Allah than a weak believer, and there is good in everyone." (Muslim)

A baby in the making

Jom,kita sama2 lihat bagaimana kejadian seorang manusia..Lihat kebesaran Allah..Journey of the sperm to the egg. Fertilization is about to occur.First weeks. No human features yet, it could be any mammal ...At eight weeks gestation, this fetus is able to kick and straighten his legs, turn them round and move his arms up and down.The fetus gently moves inside the womb. He can move his arms and legs with a range of movements that are fluid and supple.
The baby is now capable of fine hand and finger movements. In a short space of time this baby scratches, rubs and pats his cheek before doing the same to his nose. You are now able to see the silhouette and extremities a bit better.Around the sixth month the fetus is almost fully formed.
Latest stages of pregnancy. His five senses are active know.7 month. His brain and spinal cord are fully developed. His little heart, a muscle mass that begins to beat spontaneously is also complete.Last pregnancy days. The baby dreams.Here's an image using pioneering medical imaging technology, called 4-D ultrasound. This advanced technology is capable of showing the fetus as it sucks its thumb, blinks, yawns, smiles, and moves in real time inside the womb.Ready to come out.The baby is fully developed, pregnancy is coming to an end...Finally...so sweet
