The month of Rajab has dawned

Rajab, being the seventh month of the Islamic calendar is a stepping stone to the auspicious months of Sha'baan and Ramadaan. Rajab is from the Ashur Hurum (Sacred months), one of four such months in which battles were prohibited. When the moon of Rajab was sighted, Rasullulah (SAW) would recite the following Dua:

Allahumma baarik lana fee rajaba wa sha'bana wa ballighna ramadaan.
"Oh Allah, grant us blessings in the months of Rajab and Sha'baan and make us reach the month of Ramadaan"
(Shu'abul-Imaan and Ibnus Sunni)

This Dua should be recited regularly in the months of Rajab and Sha'baan. In preparation for Ramadaan, the relevance of Rajab may be understood as the month to sow seeds (good actions), Sha'baan is the month in which we should water those seeds (with tears of remorse) and Ramadaan is the month in which we reap the harvest.

Whilst the arrival of Ramadaan is certain, no person is guaranteed reaching Ramadaan. Rasullulah (SAW) would express his eagerness to be blessed with the month of Ramadaan from Rajab. We should therefore become more inclined towards virtuous deeds and Ibadah in these months.

May Allah Ta'ala let us all reach Ramadaan and grant us the ability to spend it in a manner most pleasing to Him. Ameen.

Happy birthday Sayang!!

Time has passed by so swiftly, yet another year gone. 

May the Almighty grant you all that is good in this life & in the hereafter. May the coming year hold promises of untold joy & happiness, for you deserve all this & more, Insha-Allah Ameen!! 

I cannot thank you enough for your presence in my life. From the first word spoken, little did I know what an impact you would make on this heart torn asunder. 

Remember those walls i built??
  Well, baby, they're tumbling down
  They didn't even put up a fight,
                   They didn't even make a sound.
I found a way to let you in,
  but I never really had a doubt.
Standing in the light of your halo,
  I got my angel now!!

It's like I've been awakened,
  every rule, I had you break it.
  It's the risk that I'm taking,
I ain't never gonna shut you out.

Every where I'm looking down,
  I'm surrounded by your embrace. 
Baby, I can see your halo,
  you know you're my saving grace.
  You're everything I need and more,

It's written all over your face.
  Baby I can see your halo,
  I pray it won't fade away!!

Hit my like a ray of sun,
  burning through my darkest night.
  You're the only one that I want,
  think I'm addicted to your light.

I swore I'd never fall again,
  but this don't even feel like falling.
  Gravity can forget,
To pull me back to the ground again.



                   It's like I've been awakened,

                   every rule I had you break it                                                                                                                                                                                                                .
 It's the risk that I'm taking,
  I ain't ever gonna shut you out!!
Every where I'm looking down,
  I'm surrounded by your embrace.
Baby, I can see your halo,
  You know you're my saving grace.
You're everything I need & more,
 It's written all over your face.
  Baby, I can feel your halo,
  I pray it won't fade away!!

Sayang kamu......
