بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَنِ الرَّحِيم
Alhamdulillah ala kulli hal wa astaghfirullah min kulli zanbi~ All praises to Allah for all of His blessings and I seek for His forgiveness as well. :) Masha Allah.. It's already Monday | 29th September 2014 | 4 Zulhijjah 1435 Hijrah which means we'll be celebrating Eiduladha soon, and in less than 5 days will be the Wukuf Day (9 Zulhijjah) in Arafah which will fall on 3th October, In Sha Allah. Dear people, let's together contribute our duas for all of our Muslim big family from all over the world in Makkah that may Allah ease their Hajj matters, make their Hajj Mabrur and may Allah grant us all an opportunity to perform Hajj soon as well. ^^ By the way, my Tok Abah and Nenek (grandparents from Mama's side) are also a part of the jemaah that are called to perform their Hajj this year. They have reached there since almost 3 weeks ago Alhamdulillah.. May Allah ease their matters and everyone matters Aamiin Aamiin ya Rabb.. :D
By the way, when talking about my life progress, too many interesting things occured everyday and I can't recall every single things to jot down over here. Let's just keep them in memories and may every good things last forever bi iznillah. But then, so far my life is great Alhamdulillah.. Despite the normal mood disorder that occurred every single day. Haha. :p, I think my life was great and I'm looking forward to have more happiness in the coming days. :D Actually been planning to update an entry about the personality test that I've took few days ago but really can't make it because I don't have any free time while I'm at home. *please lah* ~.~ Haha. Might catch it up soon whenever I have time for it In Sha Allah. Just a sneak peek entry to break the silence in this blog. Hope that I will have the efforts to do so and let's not assume that the "soon" from me is the very soon to come as it maybe can turn you down ahahaha. *forgive this budak insecure punya perangai yaa* ^^"
To not make this entry zero with no outcomes, here I have a little sharing of the Quran verse and few hadith about the month of Zulhijjah. Keep calm, take a look at them and practice together In Sha Allah! :D In order to completely embrace Zulhijjah, one should learn and get to know the importance of the month. The significance of this month has been highlighted in the Quran, especially on the first 10 days. So let’s increase our knowledge and receive great blessings and rewards from Allah, In Sha Allah! ^^
“By the Dawn and by the Ten nights, by the odd and even (8th and 9th Dzulhijjah).”
[QS Al-Fajr 89:1-3]
"There are no days in which righteous deeds are more beloved to Allah than these ten days."
The next good deed we Muslims ought to do is to remember and glorify Allah. To do so, recite "Laa ilaaha illallah" and "Alhamdullilah"! In addition, increase in doing good deeds such as praying on time, fasting or doing charity during the 10 days mentioned. It is also sunnah (hadith from: Ibnu Abu Shaybah in al-Musannaf / authenticated by Al-Albanee) to glorify Allah (takbir) from Fajr prayer on the day of Arafah (9th Zulhijjah), up until after Asar prayer on the last day of Tashreeq (11th to 13th of Zulhijjah). After each prayer, to takbir:
"Allahuakbar, Allahuakbar, Allahuakbar
(Allah is great, Allah is great, Allah is great)
Laa ilaaha illallah, Wallahuakbar
(None has the right to be worshipped except Him)
Allahu akbar wa lillaahil-hamd
(Allah is great and to all praises belong to Him)"
“There are no days during which good deeds are more beloved to Allah than these 10 days.”
The 9th day of Zulhijjah is the day of Arafah, where on this day, the pilgrims gather at the mountain plain of Arafah, praying and making dua to Allah. For those of us who are not in Arafah, it is mustahabb (HIGHLY recommended) to fast on the day of Arafah! By doing so, according to a hadith from Muslim, our sins from last year and the coming year will be "deleted!" Masha Allah! Huhu. Narrated by Abu Qatadah (r.a): The Prophet (pbuh) said: “Allah will expiate for you your sins of the past year and the coming year.” [Muslim].
Other than that, for those Muslims who are afford to perform the Qurban, you can participate and doing so by asking for the further details from the nearest mosque/surau and they will tell you how much amount to pay for a part of the Qurban participation. For this year in my place, they charged us RM450 (per part) to participate for Qurban. Well.. The amount might getting more expensive day by day due to the increase in living cost, high price of the Qurban animal but if you're afford for this, why not? We're doing it for the sake of Allah and may He grant us all the best of best for all the deeds that we did all this while if we're doing it Fillah Lillah. Aamiin.. ^^
Hmmm. I think I've put too many words in this update and I'm afraid that if I keep typing, this entry gonna turn silly. Haha. By the way, that's all from me for today's update In Sha Allah. Haza min fadhli Rabbi.. Till we meet in the coming entry and thank you for reading.. ♥
