Alhamdulillah, all praises to Allah, the owner of the universe, for I am given this chance to write something here and update this site after so long. The last entry was posted when I was still at home, enjoying my time with my dearest family during study leave. That’s was a good gateway but now I have to pay the price. The exam has just started yesterday and if you were about to ask whether I am ready or not sure thing I am not.
I don’t how do people describe ready in this case. As for me, I try my very best and I will let the rest to Him to decide for me. Actually we are the one who makes the decision and it is in his surveillance, all the time. Wherever we are, whatever we do just remember one simple thing that we are witnessed by Him. That’s it.I seem to lose my point now.
Talking about exam, it has something to do with study. And study, why do we study? Easy question and we are always trapped with this question by simply answer study with intention for Allah. Easy answer. But is it true? In practical, is that what really happen? I was asking myself and couples of friends around me about this and we can’t tell much how true this statement.
Intention comes from deep in our heart. But the question is how we are going to fix it? To make it stay in that way, always with intention doing something not for ourselves but as part of our obligation as a Muslim which means we do for Allah. Oh and for my non-Muslim readers, do bear me. You do understand me too regardless our distinctive believes, don’t you?
I was looking for the best answer to that very question.
How to ensure that our intentions are always on the right track? That’s not easy I must admit that. No matter how strong our faith, how loyal we are to the guidelines that have been stated by our religion sometimes it is inevitable actually to do mistakes, to slip away from the correct path. After all we are human. And human do commit mistakes.
But we always take that line as an escape to not putting the blame on ourselves. That is a cheap escape and it will not work all the time. At certain point, we need to be receptive, and to improve ourselves. Perfect or not perfect, human or whatever we are, that’s not the way we play with words to make us feel good. You know it people. How am I going to get into the correct point in simpler way.
Like I said just know, unconsciously dragged out form the truth is not something that peculiar. It does happen. I am talking on behalf of me with my very own experience. So what did I do? We always need to me reminded, from time to time. And who is going to do that for us? Who is going to remind us always about the voyage that we together take? Friends, yes that’s the best answer so fast.
If I don’t be grateful for the circle of friends that I am blessed with, it is a big mistake that will suck the beauty of my life now. The presence of good friends has now deeply influenced me. I befriend with everyone that I know and I hope that do think the same about me. We always heard about true friends, friends that will to keep us a company through thick and thin but I just said yes to this statement before this. And my yes didn’t mean that I agree. Because true friend, I haven’t experienced it before this.
For eighteen years old, I haven’t felt how amazing to befriend with people that they said true ones, loyal ones. But now, I think I have found one.
I was thinking to write about intention but somehow it turned to an entry about friends. And it is a bonus for you guys I guess to get both points in single entry. It hereby means that this entry would grasp the title of latest entry for a long time. It could a very long time before I feel like writing again here.
As salam alaik :)
