I have good news to share on this blessed Friday .

For gazillions times and since donkey years ive been persuading my hubby to learn the Quran.
The same ol' answers he will give me ..... "wait , im not ready" .
(note to some of u : my hubby is a convert)

Coincidentally, a good friend , sis N , whose husband is also a convert , told me that , her Ustz has a slot avlble on Sunday @ 3pm , checking if im interested to take in. I spoke to hubby briefly over the phone and before i did my Asr, i texted him..... asking him to consider taking this opportunity and offer , as the Ustz is experience , patience and judging fm feedbacks frm my two good friends who has been learning with him for years...the Ustz is the "one" . However , i wont force the hubby .

I texted my two good friends , sis S and sis N to make doa for me/us . They have always been very encouraging and partly my source of motivatiors . While doing my Asr, i prayed hard that Allah will open up my hubby's heart this time round. Minutes later, i r'cd a reply fm hubby ........ "Go ahead ! "

For that very moment, i just couldnt Thanks Allah enuf. Allhamdulillah 3x
I really didnt expect HE answered my doa almost immediately :)

I was full of emotions , even when i was talking to sis N , to tell her the good news . I got the Ustz mobile no. frm her and called him to make arrangments . This is really so surreal . !


The second good news .........

Sis N and her hubby's plan to go Hajj this year was rejected due to the quota issues. Even after the extended quota of extra 1500 slots were announced, their names are not in the lists. Obviously , dissappoinment surrounded them.

Then, their agent mentioned that abt 350 + jemaahs backed off, due to the lack of annual leaves, lack of preparations etc... so possibility their names can be on the top list. Sis N said, she leave it everything to HIM. Last nite, i received a text fm sis N , saying her husband and herself are being invited by Allah for this year's spiritual journey.

Alhamdulillah .

Give your full Trust in Allah ........ HE 'll be there for you.

Last Thursday, i was slaving myself in the kitchen almost the whole day. We have guests coming to our home for dinner.... my hubby's cousin , Sathesh and his wife Shamini + baby Jonan , my sis inlaw (and family) + my mom in law.

The are sick of eating all those masalas during Diwali, so they requested for mee soto, but i geared up myself making all these ....... mee soto + bagedils , roti jala + mutton curry , bandung and lime rose syrup ....+ bubur chaca for dessert , drowned with mint tea.

I was too tired n messy , that i didnt take pictures of the food, but here's the picture of the table setting .

I blogged abt this here (Tues ,July 7th 2009)

Baby Jonan Sathesh Ramiah (only 2mth +)

They really enjoyed the food very much and with just the small company , they had a blast of time.!

Never mind the aftrmath of cleaning up and all, i had a good time too . :)

It is very much depressing watching the news and reading the newspapers these days.

Every pages i flipped, there's pictures and stories abt disasters everywhere. It's painful to see children wailing and people suffering from the cause of typhoon , earthquakes and other catastrophies.

Human can only try avoid or create warnings , but nothing can stop God's will.

Bro Mohsin, showed me this verse last Friday, after the class.

Surah At-Taubah : verse 126

" See they not that they are tried once or twice every year (with different kinds of calamities, disease, famine, etc.)? Yet, they turn not in repentance, nor do they learn a lesson (from it)."

Everything that we need to know is in the Quran.
IT is a MUST read book ..there's no dispute.

About Eid visiting and invitations ..............

I received a text message which read like this :

" i heard someone told me that if u come late to H house, the food will finish limited edition like dat "

I was a little taken aback when i read this.

I asked myself ... what's the intention ?

The food ? To eat ? Or sirraturrahim ?

Well....... some people **sigh**
