I'm so happy yesterday because me and my family went to Maulidur Rasul event at Woodlands Stadium yesterday night. I simply love the majlis as it is an event where the talk is about remembering Rasulullah's harships in spreading Islam and stories that happened to Rasulullah s.a.w that moved many to tears.
What's more interesting, was the panel that are well known none other than, Dato Ustaz Abu Hassan Din, and Dr Fatris Bakaram. The topic was Isra' wal Mi'raj. It tells us the night about Rasulullah's journey to meet Allah in receiving the prayers command, from 40 down straight to only 5. SubhanAllah :) No matter how many times I have heard about this, we don't feel bored at all, right, :)
Then comes the most downhearted story happened to Rasulullah s.a.w. Here's the story..about Rasulullah s.a.w and the Jewish woman. Once, Rasulullah s.a.w and the sahabah walked down a lane at a housing area and there was always this Jewish woman who hated Rasulullah s.a.w so much that whenever he walked past, she would spit at Rasulullah s.a.w but Rasulullah remain calm and not being angry. The old Jewish woman repeatedly doing the same thing everytime Rasulullah s.a.w walked at the lane.
One day.. when Rasulullah s.a.w walked at the lane, and expected the Jewish woman to do the same thing as before but on that particular day, the old Jewish woman did not spit at him again and this made Rasulullah s.a.w wonder. Allah..Can you imagine readers, Rasulullah s.a.w even wonder why didnt the woman spit at him again.. If we are in Rasulullah's situation where someone spit at us repeatedly, what will your automatic reaction? We will be angry, furious and not even want to walk at that lane again right, but Rasulullah s.a.w did not.. Rasulullah was not angry, but remain calm...
So when Rasulullah s.a.w asked one of her neighbours what happened to her and they said that she fell sick. Without any hesitation, Rasulullah s.a.w went to her house and pay her a visit. Subhanallah, When Rasulullah s.a.w visited her, the woman who was in a bad condition, asked, " Who are you?" replied Rasulullah s.a.w nicely, " I am Rasulullah"
feeling puzzled, she asked again,"Who?" and Rasulullah s.a.w said nicely again " I'm the one that you always spit at.."
Upon hearing it, the old Jewish woman cried and was remorseful of her past, bad, immoral actions to Rasulullah s.a.w . Due to Rasulullah's excellent character, in the end, the old Jewish woman revert to Islam... :) The end.. Beautiful isn' it despite being hurt continuously, but Rasulullah s.a.w did not retaliate nor response with harsh comments but just by portraying his excellent character, could attract one to Islam.
Now that was the main point the ustaz wanted to highlight yesterday. By showing good character, as it is the first step in attracting people to see the beauty of Islam. :)

Today is my last day fasting! I mean qada for fasting. hehe and guess what, my mother is making pasta just for my day tonight! thank you mama, love you so much! hehe,
But of course, all of us cant wait for Ramadhan right! Masya Allah~ :)
Ok, yesterday on my way home from school, there was a granny with her grandchild. her grandchild was in a pram and she was standing at the side of the road probably waiting for the road to be free from any vehicles. So when I wanted to cross the road, * yes, I jay-walked* *so did the granny!* she looked at me and asked me to help her carrying her bag while she carried the pram.
Luckily, the road was clear and she was strong enough to carry her grandchild in the pram over to the other side. I totally forgot to tell her that she should just use the traffic light instead of jay walking. Nevertheless, both of them were safe.~ I told my mum about it and my mum too felt that she should use the traffic light and it is really dangerous to just carry the baby in the pram and cross over.
But, on a different note, the granny could not speak English and just muttered in Chinese. That is just cute, :) hehe
*Note to granny
Dear granny, please put safety first in all that you do. Jay walking is so not safe. Aniway, your grandchild is cute~ ;D

Ok, todays post would be about wedding. haha, actually, me and my family just attended a wedding ceremony and......
since it is the holiday season, and we got many wedding invitations. woo..
Basically, it is the foods that makes me want to go especially the desserts. cream puffs! oh they are my favourites! :) hehe
So, today's wedding is a bit unique compared to the previous one that we went because I saw so many young teenage girls of my age there, and I saw my friend. Now I know that the bride is actually their teacher. wow! No wonder there were so many girls attending. hehe
I told my mum that the girls dressed so elegantly. *including me too* hehe =p
Well, what i'm trying to say is, they are so modestly and fashionably dress! with the hijab and all others. Beautiful.
Isn'it it nice when we dress nicely and it just shows how beautiful Islam is. dressing appropriately according to the Islamics rules and also to emphasis on the tidyness on our clothing. So when people from other religions or races see us, they are going to say, " wow, I love looking at their dressing, so modest and fashionable. how beautiful" :)
Just like Rasulullah s.a.w who always dresses nicely, to portray good image and impression to others.
Dressing too is a form of da'wah. It is up to you whether you are willing or not. :)

I miss usrah..
I miss talking and discussing with the girls about anything that relates to our way of life. Example,: Islam, studies and MORE.. :)
But, one thing for sure, when it comes to usrah, it is all about we sitting down together in a circle and discuss about how we can become a better muslimah both in dunya and akhirah,
I regretted for not going for usrah last 2 week. hopefully they organise it next month! Amin, :)
