..A Stranger..

Assalam Alaikum, 

Feeling out of place...
Belonging to nowhere...

I miss my home, wherever my soul has came from~

回家的路程可真坎坷~
真主允许,家会是个美满快乐幸福的地方~

W'salam,

..The call to Prayer, Singapore Muezzin..

..My Lord! Truly, I am in need..

Assalam Alaikum, 

The creations are always in need of countless things in life~  And among all, is the forgiveness from our Creator, Allah (Subhana Wa Ta'ala)~ 

We then ask for forgiveness and hope that there will be chances to do good to make up for the mistakes which we committed... 

In the incident which Musa (Alaihi Salaam) was on the run, he made a dua, a request that was answered by our Creator, Allah (Subhana Wa Ta'ala... 

And so we know what happened... 

Musa (Alaihi Salaam) met two ladies, helped them water their flocks and as a result, he was married to one of them, got a job for the next 8-10 years... 

SubhanaAllah!

How great our creator is! 

Then, when he turned his face towards (the land of) Madyan, he said: "I do hope that my Lord will show me the smooth and straight Path." 

And when he arrived at the watering (place) in Madyan, he found there a group of men watering (their flocks), and besides them he found two women who were keeping back (their flocks). He said: "What is the matter with you?" They said: "We cannot water (our flocks) until the shepherds take back (their flocks): And our father is a very old man." 

So he watered (their flocks) for them; then he turned back to the shade, and said:"O my Lord! truly am I in (desperate) need of any good that Thou dost send me!"

..Halal Sushi w/o rice vinegar..

O ye who believe! eat of the good things that We have provided for you, and be grateful to Allah, if it is Him ye worship.
( سورة البقرة , Al-Baqara, Chapter #2, Verse #172)
Assalam Alaikum, 

So rice vinegar in sushi... Is it halal or haram? This is one product which lies in the grey area~

So, if in doubt, leave it and find a substitute!

Alhamdulillah! One sister just shared with me the usage of green lime to substitute rice vinegar. I used 1tbps of lime juice with 0.5tbps of water to substitute 1.5tbps of rice vinegar.

Result? 

Yummlicious sushi with a tangy taste, just like rice vinegar if not better!

Alhamdulillah!

..Ihsan '人在做,天在看'..

Narrated Abu Huraira: One day while Allah's Apostle was sitting with the people, a man came to him walking and said, "O Allah's Apostle. What is Belief?" The Prophet said, "Belief is to believe in Allah, His Angels, His Books, His Apostles, and the meeting with Him, and to believe in the Resurrection."

The man asked, "O Allah's Apostle What is Islam?" The Prophet replied, "Islam is to worship Allah and not worship anything besides Him, to offer prayers perfectly, to pay the (compulsory) charity i.e. Zakat and to fast the month of Ramadan."

The man again asked, "O Allah's Apostle What is ihsan (i.e. perfection or Benevolence)?" The Prophet said, "ihsan is to worship Allah as if you see Him, and if you do not achieve this state of devotion, then (take it for granted that) Allah sees you."

The man further asked, "O Allah's Apostle When will the Hour be established?" The Prophet replied, "The one who is asked about it does not know more than the questioner does, but I will describe to you its portents. When the lady slave gives birth to her mistress, that will be of its portents; when the bare-footed naked people become the chiefs of the people, that will be of its portents. The Hour is one of five things which nobody knows except Allah.


Verily the knowledge of the Hour is with Allah (alone). It is He Who sends down rain, and He Who knows what is in the wombs. Nor does any one know what it is that he will earn on the morrow: Nor does any one know in what land he is to die. Verily with Allah is full knowledge and He is acquainted (with all things).
( سورة لقمان , Luqman, Chapter #31, Verse #34)


Then the man left. The Prophet said, "Call him back to me." They went to call him back but could not see him. The Prophet said, "That was Gabriel who came to teach the people their religion." (See Bukhari Hadith No. 47 Vol 1) (Sahih Bukhari Book #60, Hadith #300)
