Almost 7 Months Stop Writing

Alhamdulillah, back again here, try to write down whatever I can write, try to translate my inner voice into real text :d, try to win myself. Well, I realize…being consistent blogger or writer is truly hard effort. But, let’s start it !!! May there will be a way to capture various inspiration.

Below some reasons why I was inactive in posting almost 7 months :

  • Prepare for my serious steps in life ; on October, 2016 I had an engagement and on 21st, January I got married. Finally, not single anymore :), already double and insyaaAllah will have baby too. Alhamdulillah, already 10 weeks pregnancy.
  • Tight schedule of Traveling, since January 2016 until end of year 2016 there were so many itinerary I passed it
  • Lost inspiration, low motivation in writing
  • Crowded mind & exhausted
  • Dynamic schedules and out of control changes
  • Learn new things every moment ; how to adapt quickly with my new life and my new environment…what a hard lessons. Indeed, it’s so difficult. Keep patient, more thankful and be sincere. New process may be harder, but it will be meaningful with many blessing.

 

Today, Yeayy…I can write and express my feeling. This is a winning for me. For the next winning is I can do my domestic routines here with higher level of sincere and enjoyment. Good Afternoon Jakarta, Hello kind visitors, it’s time for cooking.

May Tomorrow can write down again here ; more meaningful, more impressive…InsyaaAllah.

Have a great day and Don’t forget attach thankful inside.

Weekly Review

Alhamdulillah, before starting for typing something in this post, I stop for a while to complete my reading of Qur’an translation, almost finish for Juz 30, Today is the target to finish it after several times are delayed. Delayed by many reasons.

Khatam for 30 Juz of Qur’an translation, it’s needed several months, so long. Well, I think to get better understanding I must find out another Qur’an translation, sounds Ibnu Katsir book for Tafseer Qur’an is good, may Allah guide me to get this book sooner, and I can start to read it as soon as possible…InsyaaAllah. If not, I think I’ll read Ihya’ Al Ghazali or Riyadhus Shalihin, books which are collected by my father.

What’re the review for facing this week :

  • Several days ago; Alhamdulillah, I finished to recite Qur’an (Khatam) and a few days later I started it from 1st Juz. May Allah guides me to repair my reading based on right tajweed
  • Previous week, I have plenty activities relate with my house and around : iron my pending laundry, change praying clothes at nearby Mosque, fortunately… I could wash my laundry well even the weather is rainy, clean the house and mop, organize some trashy stuff inside and make it more useful #I Hope
  • For outside house, there were activities, such : visited my friend who just arrived from Mecca after performing Hajj, visited my friend at Surabaya for her starting point to joint cooking class and had a meeting with some officer of the institution, and on weekend together with my some cousins and a friend who starting cooking class in Surabaya..we watched the movie in Royal Plaza, the movie was “Deepwater Horizon”. My personal review regarding the movie is “It’s recommended movie and superb, I got meaningful lesson about the life of officers who works at Oil Company with very very high risk”. This movie made me always awake during the show, usually when I was watching the movie I slept for 5-10 minutes during the show :p.
  • And Ok, last week I gave up and break my fasting from facebook, there’re something to do with this social media and I hope I can share useful information or pictures based on my experiences I did. So many pictures are saved in my memory card or my notebook, at anytime I need to remove it or at anytime my notebook will be broken, so I need to backup them earlier. I think some of them will be saved on social media (especially for photos of traveling).
  • Yeah, my bike had been repaired, I tested it in the yard of my home, still no issue, I haven’t tested it outside, insyaaAllah I’ll test it later outside.

(will be continued, the electricity is temporary OFF)

Barakah Morning

Alhamdulillah, my skirt is ready to used, the tailor is my own cousin not to far from my house. The cloth of this shirt is from Palembang, called “Songket”, my brother gave it to me few months ago. It will be used on my another cousin wedding, insyaaAllah the wedding party will be On Friday, September 30, 2016.

While waiting my skirt is being prepared, I visit my another cousin who will have wedding party Tomorrow, I tried to help small things I can, because from Yesterday I haven’t done anything to help her. Suddenly, not just small things but another surprise things I did, I acted like mothers in general, I said to my aunt and others cousins “what I dreamed last night, how come I do these job “, then they laughed.

Almost, gonna back home after taking my skirt and some dresses to the tailor, suddenly my cousin request to pick her daughter up to the play group “O oh oh, who is the parent, why me, I act like mother again”, my cousin replied me “It’s trigger for you”, I just could say “Okay, I’ll do it, just prepare the fee for me”, she and her husband laughed, then my another cousin said “Iis, you make the school for kids”, I could say “insyaaAllah 5 years later :), I’m not ready if this year”.

After picking my second cousin up to her school, I backed home and turned on my notebook, suddenly I remembered  about my cycle, saw it, took it and I brought it to repair shop to configured it as good as he can, I want my back healthy :d, so I can cycling every day I want.

Morning text of Today is :

Every single success you experience is a combination of two things ; your effort and Allah’s help. When you don’t put in enough effort, Allah does not give His barakah. And sometimes you might put in a lot of effort, but you may not see the result you expected. That, also, is Allah’s Barakah -Nouman Ali Khan-

⇒ footnote ⇐

Barakah is Arabic word for “Blessing”

I’m Back ; “Morning Text” Program is Started

Alhamdulillah, I’m back again for writing with my inner spirit, may Allah help me to organize my soul and my words.

Well, insyaaAllah started from Today I’m gonna start to make personal program of writing, I name it with “Morning Text”. It’s intended to trigger my spirit, to greet others and also greet myself.

Good Morning, and it’s my first morning text for Today :

Bismillah,

“Many people wish to fight like the sahaba did in the battle of Badr, but the truth is they can’t even fight the battle of Fajr”

Indeed ↑, this morning I almost lose myself to fight the battle of Fajr. When Shubuh Adzan voices from the mosque near my house, I felt I wouldn’t go there to pray Shubuh together, but Alhamdulillah…He moved me up, He got me up & I could exit from my room and took Wudu, and run to mosque to catch up the Shubuh praying together.

Let’s seize the morning & win the battle … !!!

⇒Foot note⇐

*Sahaba is Arabic word for ‘Companion’, it’s used often to refer to the companions, disciples, scribes and the family of Prophet Muhammad.

*The battle of Badr was the most important among the Islamic battles of Destiny.

*Fajr is Arabic word for ‘Dawn”.

*Wudu refers to the mental preparation and physical cleanliness of Muslims for the Salat (prayer).
