telekung, quran, post-it notes to mark fav ayats, scent for aromatherapy..
This is my Tarawih Kit for my salah at home. In the living room. With the dim yellow romantic lights (the kind that makes your selfie looks good) with my personal aromatherapy and air conditioning yoooooo!!
Seronok plak solat kat rumah.
I can keep an eye on my son. I can pause in between my rakaats to pee. To take a sip of water. To just lie down on the couch and soak in the silent of the night. To decide on the next surah to read. Then to continue my rakaat until Witr. Tak byk pun.. tak sampai 20.
How is your Ramadhan so far?
I came across a sad news today regarding the health of one of my good friends father. It makes me think how Allah caturkan kehidupan kita sedemikian rupa di sekian masa bersama orang yang kita sayang – so much so that experience, whatever it may be, will benefit all who interacts with each other in the name of Allah and Islam. Thus reminding us that we must always strive fora life of Rahmat and Barakah..so we can perceive the experience in Redha and Tawakkal. InsyaAllah.
Read in the name of your Lord Who created. He created man from a clot.Read and your Lord is Most Honorable, Who taught (to write) with the pen. Taught man what he knew not
I wouldnt really say that life has been uninspiring lately. In fact, daily living has been quite a spur having forged new friendships, made new discoveries et cetera. My problem is time. No, to be precise.. lack of privacy. I find it hard to blog with the presence of Mr Husband or Baby Zeeq over my shoulders or lazing at a couch nearby.
Over the past few months, a lot of things have happened. Both happy and sad. Yet both experiences serve to spice up human interactions in everyday life.
Perhaps the most significant moment is when I stumbled upon an article in a blog through a link shared by one of my friends. It was about how as a woman, we can make our relationship with Allah through the Quran more meaningful and connected.
Technically if you love something badly, you would want to keep it close, within your arms reach. Always There, Everytime. The article mentioned promptly of how convenient it was to get any favourite (cute) Quran of your choice and treat it like an important medical textbook. Highlight interesting verses, jot down useful phrases, stick in colourful sticky notes and others. The author, a lovely lady made it look so simple and doable.
Thus, I am inspired.

Immediately I went to a nearby store which sells ‘Buku -Buku Islam’ and Alhamdulilah.. found a particular Quran with translations that I have been dying to get my hands on. The Rainbow Quran. And its cover was PINK!! On top of that, it was on sale for only MYR 80. I bought it without hesitation and got a more masculine copy of a tafsir for Mr Husband. I hope to purchase more of this Rainbow Quran during my next store visit so I could give it to my MIL, SIL and best buddies.
Insya-Allah, my journey to rediscover Islam and its beauty just as how it was for me during student times will be re-enacted. We are all never too late for religion. Ameen..
