I had a chance to visit some friends who are leaving for Hajj .

It was an unplanned morning to visit sis F at her home. She is a friend of sis N (a friend of mine) , but ive met her a couple of times, just casually , during a couple of FaithHub events. Sis N and myself were warmly welcomed to her beautiful home. It was her first time visiting the Holy Land with her hubby and an aunt. I thot to myself , " What a blessing! " Well, Sis F had different thots , a mixture of feelings and wonders if she is worthy of making the sacred voyage...

Sis N and me were invited to Sis R and Sis H home last Sunday. Sis R and Sis H are sisters...we know them in the mosque where we attend the dhuha class every Wednesday morning.
Looking at the address given, i reckon, the house is on a private ground. True enuf, i parked my car right outside a huge house as stated in the card. There's already families and thier friends eating under the white tentage . As we both entered the gate , we were greeted warmly by a sweet young lady. Then, we saw sis R and sis H....both were delighted to see us. Food spread were glorious.

Sis N and me, sat next to the koi pond with sis R . As we spoke , she told us that the house they lived in, was since 1959 . It used to be a kampung...later part of the years, the family decided to rebuild the home . Just next to their house , which is just separated by a piece if concrete wall , belongs to their another sister . We were then introduced to sis H 3 lovely daughters. All very smart and sweet...all 3 of them are going for Hajj too. Wats unique is, they are also bringing their special sister along..."adik istimewa" as per sis R..Masya allah!

Sis R , is a retired cikgu and unmarried, staying together with sis H (and her family). This is going to be her 3rd to perform the Hajj....and what blessing she said, tis time all her expenses and her "adik istimewa" was fully sponsored by sis H husband...Subhanallah. From my short given opportunity of meeting the two sisters and thier family, i could really feel sense of love, the care and the bond they had for each other. What impressed me most, despite the material things that they have, there is no air of arrogance but a jus plain down to earth of humbleness in them.

Today, im visiting a good friend (u know who u are) also leaving for Hajj. With millions fm around the world visiting the Holy house of Ka'abah...embarking on this noble and virtous journey, i pray for their safety and may their deeds and amal be accepted by Allah swt. Amin.

The future is still unknown, but sis N told me , both her hubby and herself has already registered themselves for the Hajj , next year..insya allah.

When will i be given the invitation ? HE is the All-Knowing and Merciful. Amin.

It was very late at night.

I just happend to lift up my head, looking at the dark sky

It lasted for a spilt second.

Yes! I saw a shooting star.

Masya allah......Awesome !

The other day, one of hubby's aunt was talking to me abt palm reading...she told me how certain things in her life has changed (for better) as per what the palm reader mentioned. I just sat there and listened , (in due respect) pretending to act attentive .
**note: she's non-moslem**

"Never belief what the lines of your hands predict about your future,
Because , people without hands also have a future.
Have utmost faith and trust in your Creator
Who created everything in pairs . "

It's already November !

I have a list of events and planning for the month of Nov and Dec. Im hoping that everything goes well as plan.

May HE grants my wishes.

I feel TIME has taken a toll on me.

My aging skin (dry and wrinkly) . I went facial the other day and the beautician said so too..maybe becos i lack of drinking water.

my body (tired and fatty). Im feeling heavy , maybe due to the festives food ive been eating.

my vision (blurry). Blame it on the fake lashes (which unlikely is the suspect thou)...yup , im vain !

my brain cells (forgetfullness ) . Too manyblunders.. I cant recall .... :O

Im sticking to my Wednesday and Friday morning class.
My Saturday class has been discontinued till futher notice ... but i have new class to attend on Friday nite, translations of the Quran. Alhamdulillah.

Im actually crossing my fingers and toes for a certain "someting".

Sharing with you : LOVE & TIME

Once upon a time, there was an island where all the feelings lived: Happiness, Sadness, Knowledge, and all of the others, including Love. One day it was announced to the feelings that the island would sink, so all constructed boats and left. Except for Love.Love was the only one who stayed. Love wanted to hold out until the last possible moment.When the island had almost sunk, Love decided to ask for help. Richness was passing by Love in a grand boat. Love said, "Richness, can you take me with you?"Richness answered, "No, I can't. There is a lot of gold and silver in my boat. There is no place here for you."Love decided to ask Vanity who was also passing by in a beautiful vessel. "Vanity, please help me!""I can't help you, Love. You are all wet and might damage my boat," Vanity answered.Sadness was close by so Love asked, "Sadness, let me go with you.""Oh . . . Love, I am so sad that I need to be by myself!"Happiness passed by Love, too, but she was so happy that she did not even hear when Love called her. Suddenly, there was a voice, "Come, Love, I will take you." It was an elder. So blessed and overjoyed, Love even forgot to ask the elder where they were going. When they arrived at dry land, the elder went her own way. Realizing how much was owed the elder, Love asked Knowledge, another elder, "Who Helped me?""It was Time," Knowledge answered."Time?" asked Love. "But why did Time help me?"Knowledge smiled with deep wisdom and answered, "Because only Time is capable of understanding how valuable Love is."
