Crafting for a Cause

Assalamualaikum.

It’s been a while since my last post and I genuinely feel I need to make up for my lapses. I’m not promising though but I would try to keep updating this blog as much as I can. Well anyway, recently I’ve been into a new found hobby which is crafting. You know, the sort of creating stuffs from scratch and transforming it into something beautiful. Pinterest have been quite an inspiration to me and so I thought why not try my skills out and explore my imagination. Many of my friends are into crafting and are already making money so I thought why not do the same? I don’t have yet the materials that I need so I started with old crap. Eventually, when I get what I need and of course with lots of practice, I know I can do better and would be confident to put my finished products on sale. The best part of this all is that part of the earnings I will get shall be saved for Islamic projects which I and my friends are planning in shaa Allah. May Allah make it easy for us all to gather resources to make our dreams possible.

For What Are Tears?

For what are tears?

For what are tears
If not to wash out
The pain, the fear
The world caused you

For what are tears
But to flow
To free the feelings
Inside of you

For what are tears
But to make you feel better
Confessing all your sins
Where no one hears

For what are tears
But a way to complain
The injustice this world
Caused you

For what are tears
When you sob
In the middle of the night
Where everyone lie on their beds peacefully

While you silently weep
Feeling small
In this big world
Run by rude people

For what are tears
If not to be cried
Until you feel drowned
In waterless waves

For what are tears
If not to empty
The burdens
The worries

For what are tears
If not to throw away
The pain they’ve inflicted
On your being naive

Cry, cry, cry, cry
Be yourself
Pour it out
No one else matter

Just for a moment
Brave your fear
Be afraid not
Just cry

Forgive and Be Forgiven

Forgive and be Forgiven

When everything else around you become too insensitive to lend an ear and lost their heart to selfishness, you could have just walk away and pretend that you don’t care. Eventually, you’ll end up just like them. Vibrant life. Dead heart. Living your days without looking backward who you’ve left, leaving behind the people you owe a smile and a simple thanks.

It would have been easier to live like this like nothing matters but the truth is, there’s always this thin string that’s pulling you back and the rush of blood pumping your heart to bring it back to life but we simply resist to give in because the nightmares just keep on haunting us and the pain brought by sorry-tales don’t seem to heal. The wound just keep on bleeding, running dry until it hurts again…..and again.

There is liberation for every “eye for an eye” but you can never find peace in your heart knowing you caused it to carry so much burden and grudges. The heart is made to pump volumes of blood to supply life to all our organs to keep us alive. Heart has a high threshold of carrying pain. It has four chambers right? But we owe our hearts some room and space to breathe……

For a while. Just a moment. By time, it will progress until it learn to forget. Eventually forgive.

That could be the best gift ever we could give ourself. To forgive and be forgiven.

Just a Little Rant

Sometimes when I think about all the discomforts and mess some people had caused me, the foul tricks they’ve played to manipulate me and all the lies they feed me with, I just wanna break down and cry but when I think back about the blessings Allah has showered me with, all my sentiments and burdens seem insignificant. When I look back about the sufferings of others, I considered myself to be so much blessed with what I have.

I feel terribly sorry and guilty for the times I complained about my situation and honestly, it made me feel ungrateful. I regret for every grain of discontentment I felt inside me for the times I thought I got less than what I deserved. I feel these acts and thought are going against the idea of putting your complete trust to Allah.

At times when I feel so down and felt that everyone is going against me, the only comfort that gives me solace is the truth that even if everyone carry a plot against you, no one can harm you without the will of Allah and even if everyone is on your side, no victory will unfold without the will of Allah.

What did I learn form all of these?Patience. Patience. Patience. Put your complete trust to Allah and do your best to get out from the situation.

السلم عليكم

It was narrated from Abu Hurairah, may Allah be pleased with him, that the Prophet, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him said:

Allah likes sneezing and He dislikes yawning. If one of you sneezes and praises Allah, it is the duty of every Muslim who hears him to say to him: Yarhamuk-Allah (may Allah have mercy on you)
