About Me

My photo
I have been writing since the age of 12. I started blogging in middle of 2009. Attributes my balanced view of life to doting my parents, who sent me to Chinese Primary School in Selangor for my primary education before I joined Assunta School during my high school days. Now,Im a graduated student. Blogging is one of my part time.

I am a traveler seeking the truth, a human searching for the meaning of humanity and a citizen seeking dignity, freedom, stability and welfare under the shade of Islam. I am a free man who is aware of the purpose of his existence and who proclaims: “Truly, my prayer and my sacrifice, my living and my dying are all for Allah, the Lord of the worlds; no partner has He. This, am I commanded and I am of those who submit to His Will.” This is who I am. Who are you?

My words

The way I get meaning into my life
is to devote myself to loving others,
devote myself to my community around me,
and devote myself to creating something
that gives me purpose and meaning..

Well time manage

السلام عليكم
بِسْــــمِ ﷲِالرَّحْمَنِ الرَّحِيم

This story was written for reminds SPM Candidate to manage their time well and appreaciate their surroundings... Hope you take this story as a lesson for yourself... Enjoy it...!!

"Dad, could we drop by the bookstore? I only have a few books left to read and I need to Stock up. I am almost out of books," said me one day as we ere driving back home.

"Sure thing, sweetie. We can drop by the bookstore at the mall," day replied obligingly.

That is my beloved dad. For him, it is important that I plans on how to fill up my time. Reading is one of my ways. For me, time is like a precious treasures and must be apreciated.
"Masa umpama pedang. Seandainya kamu tidak memotongnya, ia pasti memotong kamu. Sekiranya hari ini sama seperti semalam,ia adalah suatu kerugian, dan sekiranya hari ini lebih teruk daripada semalam, ia adalah suatu kecelakaan." (Perpatah Arab)

The truth is that he was a very good role model for me while I was growing up. He abhors time-wasters, and I learned the importance of time form him.

My dad has an interesting concept of time. To him, there is no such thing as free time-seriously. Time should always be filled with something good to do. If I have free time, it simply means that I am not doing what I am supposed to be doing. As easy as that.

If, for example, I decide to gaze at the sky during my so-called "free time," I should be thinking of the greatness of Allah's creation and the science behind it, pondering on the colours, along with the whys, whats and hows of the sky.

That is how my "free time" would become "unfree" - a totally interesting concept, if you ask me!

If you happen to see my dad, you will find that he always has a book in his hand. He is always acquiring new knowledge. For example. at his age, I am so proud say that he is an IT-literate grandpa! He owns a laptop, which he uses heavily and carries around everywhere he goes.

In the absence of books, my parents taught us to be amused with our surroundings. Like when we were traveling cross country, they would stop along the road to show us different things in nature, explain something about history or make us wonderwhy the mountains and trees are of different shapes, sizes and colours.

My dad once told me a quote by Baltasar Gracian about time :
All that really belongs to us is time; even he who has nothing else has that.

And that was right. Time always around for us. The question is - do we know what to do with it? As the saying goes, time waits for no man. It will continue to tick by the second , regardless of whether we use it or waste it. It will continue to move like a train, it is our responsibility to keep up with it.

Wait up, Mr. Time! Think he will stop? Think again...

Imam Al-Hasan Al-Basri (d. 101 AH), who said...

At the beginning of everyday a herald calls :

"O son of Adam! I am a new creation and a witness of your deeds.
So take a provision from me because when I pass, for
I never come back till the Day of Resurrection."

Subhan Allah. Everyday is a new creation, a, new chance, a new train. We will all board this train, whether we like it or not. Despite being grilled on the conept of time since I was young, I still sometimes find myself unable to manage my time efficiently.

Have you ever felt sometimes that certain people have so much free time on their hands, while you struggle to cope with your life demands and , at the same time. try not to go nuts?

They all know exactly what they should be doing every single day. They have a plan. And how bout you all my friends...?? Think about it...
