Well finally I've finished packing up my belongings for shipping to Malaysia. The result is almost 1m cubic of spaces used....about 25 A4 boxes..
Quite a lot eh??85% of it are my collections of books..
However today i was informed a SHOCKING & SAD news. One of my first year junior's mother just passed away. A few weeks ago she was hospitalized for stroke and he went back home(Malaysia). They will sit for the final year exam on April 20th(just in a few days ).
Questions suddenly fills in my head... What if something like that happen to me? It is just before a final exam that will decide weather you PASS or FAIL(have to repeat the year).Am i STRONG enough to cope and deal with it??
Then i remember this verses from al-Quran, taken from sura Al-Baqara:
Allah tasketh not a soul beyond its scope. For it (is only) that which it hath earned, and against it (only) that which it hath deserved. Our Lord! Condemn us not if we forget, or miss the mark! Our Lord! Lay not on us such a burden as thou didst lay on those before us! Our Lord! Impose not on us that which we have not the strength to bear! Pardon us, absolve us and have mercy on us, Thou, our Protector, and give us victory over the disbelieving folk. (286)
Things happen and ALLAH knows that we can cope with it!!
O ye who believe! Seek help in steadfastness and prayer. Lo! Allah is with the steadfastn>. (153)
And surely We shall try you with something of fear and hunger, and loss of wealth and lives and crops; but give glad tidings to the steadfast, (155)
So, any unfortunate events or bad things happen just remember this zikr......
'LAHAULA WALA QUWATA ILLA BILLAH HIL ALIYIL A’ZIM'
'Tiada Kekuatan dan Daya Melainkan dari Allah yang Maha Tinggi lagi Maha Mulia'
why?? because if BAD things happen...always rely on HIM,our creator!!
Then you'll appreciate more things you take for granted.Ada Hikmah disebalik musibah yang melanda..
Simple examples are:
if you sick, you'll taking care of your health more..
if you broke or have no money, you'll plan on saving next time
if you lose someone dear or close to you...you'll appreciate the moment you had with them and lead BETTER life
LIFE is WONDERUL,it is MEANINGFUL but it also BRIEF as CANDLE.
