Starlight, starbright make the heartbreak end tonight. I wish I may, I wish I might..

Harini dah boleh solat. I wish for a fresh start after balik umrah.

I felt sooo sad lately i dont know why. Ya Allah, please take this pain away. I need to be strong. I need to face anything infront of me with gratitude.

I need a new job. I need a fresh start.

Ya Allah, hanya Engkau tempat aku mengadu.

ps: I pity ayah sebab me like this..dia pun tak nampak happy..My routine balik kerja, trus masuk bilik tido.Langsung tak borak dengan ayah..Sebelum ni macamana tah my life. I need an ish..I need a reason to live..

pps: Kalau boleh nak solat subuh kat masjid tiap hari, balik, jogging and masak. Then pergi kerja. Balik kerja, pergi kelas mengaji on Isnin and Selasa. Khamis pergi kuliah Haron Din/semenyih. emm Rabu kt semenyih pun ada good kuliah..I wish to have a 5-days work.

ppps: kena kemas barang. Seriously makin menjadi-jadi. Barang umrah xkemas lagi pun. Huda! Wake Up!!

Rabbi Yassir Wala Tu’assir

DOA UNTUK MEMUDAHKAN SEGALA URUSAN

Rabbi Yassir Wala Tu’assir

maksudnya : Wahai tuhanku permudahkanlah dan janganlah kau susahkan.

Doa yang penuhnya :

ps: Doa ini banyak saya gunakan ketika menjalani Umrah untuk mudahkan urusan,Alhamdulillah.

 

Important item/thing (s) for umrah

Ok i already enlist the item to bring tapi ada additional yang penting. Note to self juga kalau ada rezeki pergi lagi

1. Sprayer for wudu’

This is super penting sebab tempat wudu and toilet sangatlah jauh for both Masjid Nabawi and Masjidil Haram. So anyone yang memang nak iktikaf lama dalam masjid and slalu wudu batal of terkentut ke apa..this is sangat penting! Ambil wudu’ pun ikut yang wajib sahaja that is muka, tangan ke siku, kepala dan kaki.

2. Sejadah

Dulu i thought tak perlulah bawak sejadah sbb Masjid sebesar Nabawi n Haram mesti banyak sejadah..turns out…jangan fikir mcmtu sebab kt sana, mana2 je pun orang solat and tak semestinya dapat tempat kt area sejadah. Sebab orang terlalu ramai and kadang2 kena solat dekat walkway je. So bawalah sejadah yang boleh muat beg yang nak bawak mana2 je tu.

3. Quran

Takperlu bawak rasanya sebab kt Masjid ada banyakk sgt. Hanya bawak tafsir sebab mana ada tafsir melayu kt dalam masjid kan..One more thing, wakaf Quran utk letak dalam Masjid nabawi/Haram adalah benda paling baik sekali, inshaAllah. Kalau ada sesiapa yg ke umrah, pesan wakaf Quran is the best sebab inshaAllah pahala tak akan putus, orang sentiasa akan baca kt situ. Tapi kena beli yang betul2 punya, harga around 45-50 Riyal sebab kalau yang bukan edisi Madinah/Makkah, dia akan reject and kasi sedekah kt orang instead of the Quran stay inside masjid.

4. PJ’s/nighties

Takperlu bawak baju tidur sebab mmg akan tidur dengan jubah punya. That what happens to me lah. Lepas isyak baru dinner then mmg penat nak tidur je. Mostly tak mandi pun sebab kt masjid since 2pm sampai 8.30pm. Then blah blah, tidur around 10-11pm depend on what activities nak buat. Then for my schedule around 2-3am bangun to masjid. Rasa sayang nak tidur di Tanah Haram sebab bukan selalu nak datang kan. Lain lah im so kaya, maybe tiap 3 bulan nak datang..:p

ps: Waktu dalam ihram lah paling banyak dugaan ber-umrah. Semua pantang larang 13 kena jaga. Sounds macam senang kan tapi..kalau Allah nak duga..macam-macam boleh berlaku. As for me, takpernah2 gatal kepala, time tu lah nak garu kepala, then my maksu punya softlan tumpah and bau harum mak aih, then i nak pick plants kt hotel lah, pastu ada najis burung terkena beg lah (nak tawaf kena suci dr najis), then dugaan nak terbatal wuduk(farting) masa tawaf lah, tersentuh kulit dgn org masa tawaf. Masa umrah aurat jaga betul2..sekarang ni??

Umrah Trip- Day 1

I was feeling a lil bit nervous about the whole umrah trip at first. Thers a many reason contributing to it. One, i felt that i wasnt spiritually prepared sebab i felt i asyik keluar je at night 2 weeks before going. Second, im afraid my menses datang masa umrah which is 15th if correct on calendar which fall when we were at madinah.So i was super worried over this. Third, i havent finish reading all the material pertaining to the list i made beforehand. Actually mcm dah ok tp macam otak fikir tak cukup. Just as like nak exam, we felt that we read enough but still rasa xpuas.

Then pagi tu i managed to bangun awal  for subuh then visit kubur mak. I told her that im going to umrah with the rest of the family only without her..and arwah Paklong and i will always keep on praying for her and sedekah all i can, inshaAllah. Allah has fated this and i know they both were there watching us..

Then off to rumah nenek and wait yang tak sampai lg.. On the way to nenek’s ayah lupa ihram tp actually ada je dlm beg, he’s just was-was. Salu cmtu tau..Then masa nak bayar tol to KLIA, tiket cam hilang kejap.Dugaan2..hehe i was feeling a bit uptight n nervous with the situation macamtu..lagilah kan…Samapi sana, solat jamak takdim zohor n asar, then wait and wait an the flight delay smpai 6.30pm. Tapi about 7pm baru betul2 depart. beforehand my friends datang and hantar. Im so touched by that big act to me. Nana is my primary school friends, Lia is my secondary friends and Ain is my uni friends. They all came and i understand its Jummat and ppl are working. having them to come dah cukup to me.

So we arrived at Jeddah Airport around 10-11pm jeddah time and straight hop on bus to Madinah. Arrived Madinah around 6am, that time Subuh prayers baru je lepas..Sayang sgt xdapat Subuh at Masjid nabawi. When pass tru Masjid Nabawi i had this overwhelm feel yang sangat speechless. Macam sayu i dont know why..And sgt mcm xpercaya sampai juga ke tanah haram and berpeluang tengok the wonders and kebesaran and kecantikan Masjid kedua suci selepas Masjidil Haram. Because of super worried menses datang, rasa nak pergi je solat at Masjid Nabawi but semua pun solat di hotel saje. Our hotel is Jawharatul Al-Fayroz Hotel beside Hilton, very near i must say.. ye la taklah depan pintu masuk, tapi ada dalam 300-400m maybe. All the building look the same to me so susah nak recognize hotel at first.

After subuh prayer, breakfast and rest dalam bilik sebab tak selesa tidur in bus yg air conditioner tak function sangat. Then around 9am siap2 untuk ke Masjid Nabawi with all my aunts and neneks. Most of them pernah pergi before ni umrah and haji so tau pintu mana nak masuk so i just followed them. Masuk2 pintu yang paling mudah is 25 and ada guard perempuan berjubah hitam yg strict check bags semua. Then off we went, cari tempat paling sesuai and pray tahiyatul masjid and dhuha and any other sunat prayers yang nak. 1 prayers= 1000 pahala compare to biasa. MashaAllah..I did felt sayu and cried while on my prayers. Rasa dekat dgn rasululullah swt, wallahualam. Tapi mmg terasa…im so thankful i got this oppurtunity to stepped in the masjid.

Waktu solat sini sangat dekat2, Dhuhur is 12.30, Asar 3.55, Maghrib 6.30, Isya’ 7.30.

Lepas Dhuhur selalu akan balik hotel to makan lunch. Then rehat kejap, pergi Asar. Then lepas Asar ada ziarah2 area masjid dgn mutawwif. Then Maghrib, tggu Isyak sekali than balik makan dinner. Timing between Maghrib and Isyak paling mengantuk sekali..Sebab maybe kt Malaysia timing pkul 1am. Siap tertidor lagi. Supposely ada ziarah malam lepas isyak sebab mutawiff nak bawak jalan ke Raudah iaitu taman2 syurga..Tapi me and my aunts penat sangat tak tahulah kenapa..Kitorg balik bilik n tidur.

End of Day 1. 11-12 Mac 2011

Some quote from Grey’s Anatomy:

time flies

time wait for no man

time heals all wounds

all any of us want is more time.

time to stand up, to grow up,  time to let go

time

Everybody wins.

Assalamu Alaikum…

Just got back from Umrah last Wednesday and demam till now..My body hurts, my pinggang sakit and my head as heavy as my weight. Plus my menses today. mashaAllah syukur that it came out sbb doa byk2 xdtg masa umrah. Alhmdulillah. nanti i share the doa how to tahan menses while on umrah. I’ll do a series of checklist n guide of umrah once dah sihat sikit based on my experience, inshaAllah.

What i meant of everybody wins is the thing that happen to me previously..Come to think about it, everybody wins.If it didnt happen, no one wins. Allah is great, how He plan everything,mashaAllah…I win in my own way, i got to be closer to Allah way better than last time. I got to go to the most holy place on earth and visit Rasulullah SAW. What is a better thing than that? I win, literally. He win of masukkan someone to Islam. Thats a big win. Alhamdulillah. And she win of gain hidayah from Allah to converts. No matter the motives or the execution of it, i want to think that…

Everybody wins.

ps: InshaAllah will write down some series of my umrah trip.:)

a complete mess

yes i am.

But Alhamdulillah today is well. I managed to withdraw the money and will change it to SAR (Saudi Arabian Riyal) tonight at Semenyih. I think the rate there is the best among all money changer i’ve been to. Will change MYR300  for ayah and MYR300 for me. Cukuplah kot.. The rest masukkan dalam acc. Al-Rajhi Bank ayah..So nanti nak duit, withdraw guna ATM je. Spare some money dalam Maybank. Sebab its visa so convenient la sikit. Then bawak CC la just in case..Pfftt..haritu nak patahkan dia tp tak jadi..hahaha. I have issue. Drama giler.

All the barangs dah ok kot. But still beli tdung n tahape2..ehehe malm ni nak cari sandal with Anis kt Uptown. Last Sunday beli Jubah santek at Mydin USJ. Sgt adore…wpun harga murah. Pergi Mydin after aerobik dgn Aya kt Tasik Taman Jaya.
