How are you?
A book-done-reading fine. Hehe.
I’m finding peace by reading nowadays of which I’m going back to my childhood self once again. Haha.
(Padahal memang suka baca buku pon lols)
You wanna know something funny tak?
(Kalau taknak, I still wanna cerita gak. Haha)
So, yesterday I did some grocery shopping alone and out of the blue I decided to wash my car. You know yang car-wash-machine tu kan…I went there because I simply want to give my car a wash je.
And yeah I did. I am so happy that my car dah mandi after months of tak mandi heheh. Usually I’ll give him a bath myself but nowadays I don’t feel like washing the car.
Andddd~~ tak lama lepas tuu HUJAN!!! Hahaha. I laughed my heart outtt sebab memang dah agak that it’s gonna rain.
You know, I always have this luck bila cuci kereta. Almost 99% of times when I wash my car, mesti akan hujan right after that.
I thought it’s only when I wash my car je. But one time, mom send her car for car wash and I’m accompanying her and tadaaaa~~~ hujan turun right after the wash. I told mom that “sorry ma, it’s my luck that it’s rain everytime I wash the car” and mom laughed.
I know it’s ridiculous to think like that. Ye lah kita tahu kan cuaca tu kerja Allah. It’s just I can’t help to laugh at the situation.
I used to be mad at the weather over something petty like this when I was young, you know. I said “penat-penat je cuci kereta; pastu hujan” or “tak guna punya hujan; turun lah time aku dah cuci kereta”. Astaghfirullah al azim. That was the young me.
Gaiss — life is a choice. You can see it from a negative point of view or a positive one.
Baru-baru ni I attend a Tadabbur Al-Quran session and this ustadha shared that (in somewhat similar sayings) if we are easily mad or angry or very much in rush in everything — we are not in peace deep down in our heart.
Let’s see ourselves when we are late or when we are in the middle of a traffic jam; for example. Do we swear or honk like crazy or being impatient and be angry over everything?
I always have this belief in my heart that there’s always a reasoning over something that happened. Because that’s what Allah had plan and laid our life as.
So yeah. Life is a choice. You can take our lateness as something good or bad. You can take being trapped in a traffic light as a time for you to do quran recitation or do some zikr or you can be all mad over it of which I believe that you takboleh nak buat apa-apa melainkan bertenang dan cari jalan alternatif lain and simply follow the flow.
The same with me and the car wash and the rain. I chose to laugh about it and be grateful for the trees and other living creatures yang memerlukan air hujan untuk hidup. I can’t stop the rain, can I? And my car need a wash once in a while. What the use making a fuss over a rain that comes after a car wash, right?
How to find peace in our heart?
This is what I do and feel free to dig deep down in your heart what works for you,okay?
1- Baca Al-Quran
2- Cari talk yang share stories from Alquran
You kena usaha untuk fall in love with Allah, with Muhammad s.a.w, with Islam. Fill in your heart dulu. Baru sikit-sikit ubah yang luaran.
When you fall in love with Allah, with His creatures ; insyaAllah you will find peace and you know la kan what happen when you fall in love kan? You will do mostly anything to please the one that you love kan — in this case is Allah.
Again. Life is a choice. You can take your life negatively or positively. It’s all in your hand.
p/s: I’m not an Alim or anything. I just simply share what I feel and what I believe. If what I wrote here happened to open up your view in life in a positive way, Alhamdulillah. All from Allah.
