Good deeds over possessions

 

Wealth and children are [but] adornment of the worldly life. But the enduring good deeds are better to your Lord for reward and better for [one’s] hope.

Al Kahfi – 46

To love our possessions is okay, but to put them over Allah is not okay. Remember that we live in this dunya temporarily. Our actual home is hereafter world. Make use of our possessions for our provisions to go to the heavens.

Children that we love dearly are entrusted by Allah. They are also trials for us whether or not we can educate them well to get closer to the owner of the world.

Remember the story of Ibrahim a.s. and Ismail a.s. How they both passed the trials was amazing. Ibrahim a.s. truly loved his his son eventhough they were living miles apart. Once he had the opportunity to visit his son, Allah gave him the test which we have known already what it is. His love for his son was deep, yet his love for Allah was deeper.

Remember the story of Ayyub a.s. He was a righteous and patient person. He was given such trials in which all of his possessions were gone. Also, he was given such a disease that made him more miserable. He lost his wealth and family. His children died. Yet, he was still patient, and his love for Allah was unconditional.

Remember the story of Muhammad s.a.w. and his son, Ibrahim. When he only had Fatimah as his only child, Allah gave him the little Ibrahim which made him so happy. However, Ibrahim didn’t live long enough. Indeed, Muhammad saw. was sad, but he knew that Allah had planned the best for him.

These stories remind us that children, whom we love dearly, and I believe we can sacrifice our wealth just to save them, are trials for us. That we love them in this dunya is important. However, it is far more important that we prepare them and us to walk together to Jannah. It is important to tell them that Allah path is more beautiful than this world and all of its possessions.

Erat Nanti

 

Sepintas

ada perasaan lega

ketika bisa memahami

makna nasihat sang bunda.

Rasa takut itu ada

karena ia adalah pertanda

hati ini masih penuh dengan dosa

Rasa syukur seharusnya terus mengikuti

karena diberi hati yang berempati

oleh Sang Maha Pemberi.

Keyakinan itu selalu ada

bahwa janji Allah itu nyata.

Akan sampai suatu saat nanti

seseorang akan menggenggam tangan ini

dengan erat, lembut, dan pasti

menuntun serta melangkah bersama

menuju telaga kautsar dengan ridho-Nya 

 

 

Pizza Favorit di Jember

Sebenarnya saya enggak ada niatan buat menulis tentang makanan atau kasih review makanan gitu. Soalnya asli saya bukan tipe orang yang rajin-rajin banget kulineran. Baru kulineran kalau lagi diajak temen atau memang ada postingan makanan menggoda seliweran di feed Instagram baru deh penasaran.

Nah, baru baru ini ada satu tempat makan baru (tapi ya gak baru baru amat sih) di Jember yang dari awal udah mencuri perhatian lidah saya. Namanya Pizza Combi. Saya memang pecinta Pizza atau makanan makanan sebangsanya. Jadi pas yang mengajak makan pizza ya saya oke oke aja.

Dan ternyata jenis pizza disini enak banget, cocok lah buat lidah saya. Rotinya lebih tipis dari kebab jadi rasa topingnya lebih menonjol. Pertama kali saya mencoba rasa meat lovers dan itu enak. Hari ini saya datang lagi mencoba rasa white combi, something spicy gitu (lupa), Hawaiian, dan black paper. Enak cucok meong.

Kalau disuruh milih mana yang paling recommended saya bingung soalnya tiap rasa sama-sama enaknya tapi punya ciri khas yang berbeda aja. Oh iya, kalau kamu pesen pizza disini, kamu bisa pesan 2 macam rasa dalam satu pan pizza sekaligus. Yah lumayan, dan harganya juga masih terjangkau dan sesuai kok dilihat dari rasa pizzanya. Hanya saja,  yang kurang memuaskan bagi saya yaitu minumannya. Hehe. Kurang recommended. Saya lebih nyaman pesan cola aja soalnya minuman yang lain rasanya gitu gitu aja. Kurang sesuai sama harganya. 🙊

But definitely I will come back!

The Smiths – Ask

Shyness is nice, and
shyness can stop you
from doing all the things in life 
you’d like to

So, if there’s something you’d like to try
If there’s something you’d like to try
Ask me, I won’t say “No”, how could I?

Coyness is nice, and
coyness can stop you
from saying all the things in 
life you’d like to

Spending warm summer days indoors,
writing frightening verse
to a bucktoothed girl in Luxembourg

Ask me, ask me, ask me
ask me, ask me, ask me

Because if it’s not love
then it’s the bomb, the bomb, the bom,
the bomb, the bomb, the bomb, the bomb
that will bring us together

Nature is a language.
Can’t you read?
Nature is a language.
Can’t you read?

So, ask me, ask me, ask me
ask me, ask me, ask me

A Visitor

​Meeting someone in life is something that’s actually astonishing.

That’s because he brings himself with his past, present, and his future.

That’s because someone’s whole life comes along.

The heart is fragile.

Therefore, it might have been broken.

That heart is coming too.

– Because this is My First Life-

 

Hey,

For the past 365 days,

you’ve worked hard.

You’ve learned about 

how to accept your own skin,

to accept the blood flowing throughout your body

and to seek the perfect comforts in your imperfections

You’ve worked hard, and I do appreciate it.

Bless your soul.

24 is your turn.

Women are strong

they stand 

they fight

they endure

for those they love

Women are smart

they teach

they calculate

they appreciate 

for the things they have

Women are beautiful

they preach

they give

they forgive

without asking for return

But,

women are women

In any shape,

in any dress,

in any skin,

deep down they know

they are women,

deep down we know

they are women,

deep down you know

they are women,

and..

deep down he should know

she is a woman
