“The past matters. But only as a reference point untuk tengok sejauh mana kita dah berubah. Bukan sebagai beban yang kita bawak ke depan yang buatkan kita rasa segan untuk jadi lebih baik daripada semalam. Yang judge kita Allah. Bukan manusia. Ingat tu aje.”


“Kalau nak ikutkan dark and ugly pasts, maybe you should read some of the cerita sahabat untuk inspirasi.”

“Wrong is wrong even if everyone is doing it. And right is right even if you are the only one doing it.”


“We act in what we believe in. We’re the ones who decide on who and what we want to be. Were the one making the choices.”


“Apabila kita berusaha buat benda-benda baik, inshaAllah Allah akan balas dengan yang baik-baik juga.”


“The chains of habit are too light to be felt until they’re too heavy to be broken.”


“Everybody has a past. Everybody lives a present. And everybody deserves a future.”


“Because it is my obligation to God. Because Allah told me so, it is a projection of my faith. Plus, Islam wants it’s believers to be chaste, modest and virtuous, hence the covering.”


“We act on what we believe in. We’re the ones who decide on who and what we want to be. Were the one making the choices.”


“Don’t be in such a hurry to condemn a person because he doesn’t do what you do, or think as you think or as fast. There was a time when you didn’t know what you know today.”

Allah membentangkan tangan-Nya pada malam hari untuk menerima taubat orang yang bersalah di siang hari, dan membentangkan tangan-Nya pada siang hari untuk menerima taubat orang yang bersalah pada malam hari sehingga matahari terbit di barat. [Hadis Riwayat Muslim]

And baru aku realised, sakitnya bila jauh dari tarbiyah. Agama tak perlukan kita, tapi kita sangat perlukan agama. Acah baik, dah jatuh baru cari agama. But it's okay, agama tak pernah mengecewakan sebab yang wujudkan tu Tuhan. Cuma yang boleh aku pesan, seteruk mana pun perbuatan kita, jangan la tinggal solat dan Quran. Sebab dua ni lah yang akan guide kita balik kepada Tuhan. And yes, istikharah memang membantu. Once dah tak sedap hati atau urusan tu tak dipermudahkan, then maybe it's the sign. Don't neglect it, I've bad experience neglecting  the istikharah. :)

P/s: istikharah ni better buat before nak buat apa-apa. Bukan dah bagi decision, then baru buat. But if it didn't work out along the way, buatlah istikharah. Kalau dah buat banyak kali then didn't work out, nasihat aku sebaiknya janganlah diteruskan. Kalau dak, nanti putih mata sebab neglect istikharah berkali-kali. Sebab Allah dah tetapkan, kita cuma boleh berusaha; but berusaha dengan cara yang Allah redha. :)
