I still remember how we started talking

I think I've discovered something about my own dearself.. Me and my profound passion towards words.. Theyre these wonderful things that are made up from 26 alphabets; 21 consonants and 5 vowels. So beautifully arranged to make a word that actually mean something. Words that are organized until they form a sentence. A message. Be it in lyrics, poems, storybooks, magazines, articles, newspapers. Theyve never ceased to amaze me. I wonder if anyone else see it this way as well, such a sacred little thing, that is.

Maybe that's why I find myself looking for comfort from these dear words. Sometimes if Im alone, I scribble down words on my sketchbooks. Quotes.When i get sad, I tend to look for something to read, or, something to listen to, or even, sometimes, someone to listen to; my mum or my bestfriend. They have this magical healing power!

But most important of all, are those words from Allah. in that sacred form of kitaab A-Qura'an. Try this, randomly open a page, and read an ayat, read the translation. Absorb it.

There was a time when something was taken away from me. Something that I dearly value but it had gone lost, nowhere to be found and I was grieving over it so much, I cried. But something told me to open the Quran, and there it was; an ayat from surah Al-Hadiid.. (22-23) *an ayat I could never forget for the rest of my life,insyaAllah*

"Tiada suatu bencanapun yang menimpa di bumi dan (tidak pula) pada dirimu sendiri melainkan telah tertulis dalam kitab (Lauh Mahfuzh) sebelum Kami menciptakannya. Sesungguhnya yang demikian itu adalah mudah bagi Allah. (Kami jelaskan yang demikian itu) supaya kamu jangan berduka cita terhadap apa yang luput dari kamu, dan supaya kamu jangan terlalu gembira terhadap apa yang diberikan-Nya kepadamu. Dan Allah tidak menyukai setiap orang yang sombong lagi membanggakan diri."

Allah talked to me! SubhanAllah! I instantly then found peace.

Later when I told my mum about this, she also told me the same thing happened to her when Ammar (my brother) passed away...SubhanAllah..
Eid Mubarak to my muslim readers. Taqabballahu minna wa minkum.
