Beautiful Poem - The ABC of ISLAM


Here is the beautiful poem -  the ABC of ISLAM

A is for ALLAH
LORD of the Universe, who is One,
HE made the earth, stars, and sun
HE made angels to worship and pray,
HE made man from a dab of clay

B is for Bilal
Bilal is that tall, brave African man,
Islam freed him and gave him iman
Calling the Muslims to come and pray,
Was his duty each night and day

C is for Children
Black, white, red, yellow, and brown,
Better than the jewels in a crown
Laughing or crying, short or tall,
ALLAH loves children, one and all

D is for Du'a
Remembering ALLAH all nights and days,
By giving HIM our thanks and praise
Thank ALLAH with "Al Hamdulillah"
And praise HIM with "Subhanallah

E is for Earth
With its mountains, rivers, and seas,
Animals, birds, fruits, and trees
They all declare ALLAH's Might,
Following HIS laws, wills, and light

F is for Faith
That which the Muslims call Iman,
Is in the heart of the believing man
Will come from his lip and hand,
Love for ALLAH pouring out like sand

G is for Gabriel
An angel created by ALLAH from light,
His duty is to serve ALLAH all day and night
To Prophet Muhammad he did appear,
To bring mankind the Holy Qur'an so dear

H is for Heaven
GOD's garden of joy, peace, and love,
The home for Muslim's souls above
The path to this heavenly place
Is faith in ALLAH's guidance and grace

I is for Islam
A way of life for all of who,
Give to ALLAH the praise that is due
We worship and pray five times a day,
Because we know it is the best way

J is for Jesus
Peace be upon him, 'Isa, the son of Maryam,
To his people ALLAH's word did he carry
By ALLAH's help he made the sick well,
So people would believe what he had to tell

K is for Ka'bah
First house of ALLAH in Makkah was made,
By Ibrahim and Isma'il the stones were laid
Millions of believers from every race,
Come for Hajj to this extra special place

L is for Life
A precious gift from ALLAH to you,
Don't waste it, HE knows what you do
Don't chase pleasure or forget ALLAH,
No matter how little, say "Al-Hamdulillah

M is for Muhammad
Peace be upon him, Abdullah's son,
From ALLAH's enemies he did not run
Of all the Prophets he was the last,
Islam his message which we hold fast

*The Unconditional Love*

What does An Unconditional Love mean? How do we describe it? If you really want to figure out about this, below I quote Dr. Guy A. Pettitt's some points of view about this matter.

The Unconditional Love

Unconditional love is enlarging the self, and an act of will. It is not a feeling or an emotional reaction. Think of the difference between falling in love, and growing in love through all difficulties and conflicts.

Unconditional love is an act of mental and spiritual will, it cannot and does not take place upon the emotional level, which is where the problems first register. Unconditional love is extending oneself in the service of the spiritual growth of oneself and/or another, independently of reward or the behavior of others.

To truly love in this way could include:

1. To call forth a sense of responsibility, and a capacity to make wise choices.

2. To point out weaknesses people have, - but very caringly so that the best in the person is drawn forth in response, rather than resistance.

3. To challenge people to strive and attain, and discover their true selves..

4. To help people work on their habits and weaknesses so that they become stronger. To show them how to use their will correctly.

5. To help people learn to cooperate, and thus to overcome their little egos.

6. To engage people in working for humanity.

7. To teach people how to overcome their prejudices, resentments, separative tendencies, vanities, illusions, and other blocks to their own joy.

To truly love in this way does not mean:

1. To surrender to weakness.

2. To accept things that are harmful.

3. To encourage weakness or irresponsibility.

4. To accept dirt or ugliness in thought, feeling or action.

5. To exploit or use people.

6. To put people into sleep.

7. To tolerate laziness.

Inspirational quotes: Maturity

Maturity is the ability to handle frustration, control anger, and settle differences without violence or destruction.

Maturity is patience. It is the willingness to postpone gratification, to pass up the immediate pleasure or profit in favor of the long-term gain.

Maturity is perseverance, sweating out a project or a situation in spite of opposition and discouraging setbacks.

Maturity is unselfishness, responding to the needs of others (teammates).

 Maturity is the capacity to face unpleasantness and disappointment without becoming bitter.

 Maturity is the gift of remaining calm in the face of chaos. This means peace, not only for ourselves, but for those with whom we live and for those whose lives touch ours.


Maturity is the ability to disagree without being disagreeable.

Maturity is humility. A mature person is able to say, "I was wrong." He is also about to say, "I am sorry." And when he is proven right, he does not have to say, "I told you so."

An Inspiring Story: A Date with the Other Woman

It's an Inspiring Story and lovely reminder for us that is truly important to say in time: I Love You and to give our loved ones the quality time that they deserve.
Actually, I have read this story couple times beforehand, since few years ago. I've read this from some of my friends' notes and status updates (*notice that since few months ago we can type long texts as our status updates on facebook), I've read this from mailing list, etc. Just couple minutes ago, I've read it again from one of  facebook friend's status update from England, Catherine, then I thought that I'd love to copy and paste that story in this blog and share it forward in order to inspire and remind many more people about the importance to say "I Love You" in time to our loved ones :)

An Inspiring Story: A Date with the Other Woman

After 21 years of marriage, my wife wanted me to take another woman out to dinner and a movie. She said, “I love you, but I know this other woman loves you and would love to spend some time with you.”

The other woman that my wife wanted me to visit was my MOTHER, who has been a widow for 19 years, but the demands of my work and my three children had made it possible to visit her only occasionally.

That night I called to invite her to go out for dinner and a movie. “What’s wrong, are you well?” she asked.
My mother is the type of woman who suspects that a late night call or a surprise invitation is a sign of bad news. “I thought that it would be pleasant to spend some time with you,” I responded. “Just the two of us.” She thought about it for a moment, and then said, “I would like that very much.”

That Friday after work, as I drove over to pick her up I was a bit nervous. When I arrived at her house, I noticed that she, too, seemed to be nervous about our date. She waited in the door with her coat on. She had curled her hair and was wearing the dress that she had worn to celebrate her last wedding anniversary. She smiled from a face that was as radiant as an angel’s. “I told my friends that I was going to go out with my son, and they were impressed, “she said, as she got into the car. “They can’t wait to hear about our meeting.”

 We went to a restaurant that, although not elegant, was very nice and cozy. My mother took my arm as if she were the First Lady. After we sat down, I had to read the menu. Her eyes could only read large print. Half way through the entries, I lifted my eyes and saw Mom sitting there staring at me. A nostalgic smile was on her lips. “It was I who used to have to read the menu when you were small,” she said.
“Then it’s time that you relax and let me return the favor,” I responded.

During the dinner, we had an agreeable conversation – nothing extraordinary but catching up on recent events of each other’s life. We talked so much that we missed the movie. As we arrived at her house later, she said, “I’ll go out with you again, but only if you let me invite you.” I agreed.

Live A Happier Life

Not a few people who often ask and even wondering to themselves, what is the meaning of life, "how can I find happiness?" or "how do I live a happy life?"  Whew...It sounds deep contemplation questions, doesn't it?

Well, I don't have such a meticulous formula to answer such those rhetorical questions anyway, but if you allow me to give you some wisdom thoughts to contemplate to make you live a happier life, so here they are

Next time you wake up, instead of dreading the day ahead, rise and shine and expect something wonderful to happen today!

When you go outside and it's raining, feel the rain or wind on your face, don’t hide from it. Isn’t it refreshing? :)

Smile at everyone you meet. It is a fact that people tend to respond to the look you are wearing on your own face.

Wiggle your toes if you are bored. Be happy that you have toes to wiggle!

Be polite, and say please and thank you!

When you’re eating, really slow down and enjoy every bite of what you’re eating!
It’s really good…..and even if you don’t like it, isn’t it great that you have food?

Never underestimate yourself! You’re always growing and learning. Just because you didn’t succeed at something in the past, doesn’t mean you can’t get it right this time around!

Stop complaining about your life! Never take for granted all the joys and freedoms you have. Remember those who have less…Be grateful and be thankful to God for all the loved ones and all the things you've been blessed for

Be Grateful....Be Happy

Tell everyone who is important to you how you feel about them! You don’t ever want to spend your days regretting things you never told to them, do you?

And last but never least, remember that life is about love. Give love when you can, and it will be given to you…

Fadhilah Silaturahiim ♥

Dalam ajaran Islam, silaturahim sangat besar manfaatnya, antara lain dapat mempercepat datangnya kebaikan, memperpanjang umur, dan melapangkan rezeki. Ada dua hadits yang menjelaskan keutamaan (fadhilah) bersilaturahim.

Rasulullah saw bersabda, "Sesuatu yang paling cepat dapat mendatangkan kebaikan adalah balasan (pahala) orang yang berbuat kebajikan & menghubungkan tali silaturahim, sedangkan yang paling cepat mendatangkan kejahatan ialah balasan (siksaan) orang yang berbuat jahat dan memutuskan hubungan kekeluargaan." (H.R. Ibn Hibban).

Adapun hadits kedua berupa dialog yang terjadi antara Rasulullah saw dan para sahabatnya, sebagai berikut:

Oldie but goodie...Apa kabar my oldie blog? :)

Bismillah :)

Setelah hampir 3 thn blog ini "benar-benar" dianggurin, akhirnya kangen menyentuhnya lagi xixixi. Menyempatkan diri baca postingan2 lama. Pengen "menjejalinya" lagi dengan tulisan yang insyaALLAH bermanfaat gak hanya buat aku tapi buat siapa aja yg sempat atau sengaja mampir ke sini *cough*

Sedikit review ke belakang, ini blog kedua yang aku punya. Klo blog paling pertama yang aku punya dulu, "numpang" di hostingnya, tapi krn geocities dah tutup, semua postinganku waktu itu tiba2 aja banish hilang bagai di telan gurun padang pasir. Semua foto, contact list teman2 yang ngisi guest book aku jg raib semuanya gak bersisa. Yahoo agak kurang bertanggung jwb sih dgn gak nyediain support buat back-upnya. Anyway, what can I do?? dah resikonya numpang di hosting gratisan :P

Sebenarnya blog ini gak cuma aku jadiin diary online aja or simple personal blog. Sempat bbrp kali juga pernah aku pake buat monetizing, at least buat nerima bbrp job paid review. Belum punya adsense wkt itu simply because I'm not interested yet to have it.

Singkat cerita,setelahnya lebih banyak nerima job buat being ghostwriter. Nulis puluhan artikel buat proyek paid review org lain, akhirnya gak fokus ngembangin blog sendiri. Blog ini jadinya dianggurin, google page ranknya benar2 jatuh dari 2 menjadi N/A. Tragiss ya??! hiks...hiks...LOL

Well, let bygones be bygones, skrg mo ngusahain buat memulihkan kejayaannya & "mendampinginya" meningkatkan prestasinya hahahaha bahasanya euy...agak lebay :P
Siapa tau, page ranknya bisa kembali melesat & blog sederhana ini jg bs ikut nambahin pundi2 dollar di rekeningku...yippieeee
Semoga penghasilan bisa jadi semakin mapan, mau kerja volunteer & support charity bs lbh nyaman krn gak perlu puyeng nyisihin uangnya. InsyaALLAH....Aamiin Allahumma Aamiin...
