A Song That Invites You to Help Others and Have a Kind Heart

This song is very meaningful and it touched my heart.
I cried every time I watch it.
The music arrangement too!!
Its just too nice.

There are several stories in this music video :

Story 1 : A child was unconscious and her mother seek for help. A man whom work as a paramedic gave her a helping hand. When the man got back from his work, all of his family were hiding inside the house and prepare a surprise birthday party for him.

Story 2 : At first, the video showed a dad carrying his son in a baby stroller. Not long after, the son whom has grown up really well, took care for his father too.The son was carrying his father on the wheelchair. As much love that the father gave his son, the father received the same.

Story 3 : A mother trying to cross the busy street but her hands were full. At the same time she needed to hold her daughter's hand. Luckily, a woman whom was going to cross the street saw this and volunteered to help. Later on, when the woman was admitted in the turned out that the mother from before was a nurse and that she was taking care of the woman. 

Story 4 : In an evening at a park, a man who was reading a book saw a teddy bear fall from a girl's hand. He saw this and quickly help and returned the teddy bear back to the girl. The girl and his father was very thankful to the man.

Story 5 : A dedicated father works as a surgeon and helped a patient in the operating room. While he was in the operating room, his son who was technically drown in a pool was saved by his friends. He was unconscious at first but later on was able to breathe. The boy called his father to tell him about it and the father seemed really relieved.

From the stories in the music video,
it shows that there is nothing wrong with helping people.
even the littlest things could worth a lot!
By doing good deeds, we are actually doing good deeds to ourselves too.
So lets all do good things and offer our hands in helping others.

No one has ever become poor from giving.
Can you see that I already highlighted some of the lines below?
I really like the meaning of these words.
Sangat mendalam maksudnya.

Sami Yusuf Healing Lyrics

It's so hard to explain
What I'm feeling
But I guess it's ok
Cause I'll keep believing
There's something deep inside
Something that's calling
It's calling you and I
Its taking us up high

Healing, a simple act of kindness brings such meaning
A smile can change a life let's start believing
And feeling, let's start healing

Heal and you will be healed
Break every border
Give and you will receive
It's Nature's order
There is a hidden force
Pulling us closer
It's pulling you and I
It's pulling us up high

Healing, a simple act of kindness brings such meaning
A smile can change a life let's start believing
And feeling, lets start healing

Hearts in the hand of another heart and in God's hand are all hearts
An eye takes care of another eye and from God's eye nothing hides
Seek only to give and you'll receive
So, heal and you will be healed

 قلب بين يدي قلب و بيد الله كل قلب
عين ترعى عينا، وعين الله ترعى
كلمة طيبة صدقة
تبسمك لأخيك صدقه
كل معروف صدقة
اللهم اشف شفاءً لا يغادر سقماً

I like the song 'Healing'.
Sami Yusuf has the credibility to create music that touch one's heart.
For those who not yet watch this video,
I recommend that you download it in High Definition (HD) and watch it on your own.
You will cry, i tell you.
My father said that crying is not the sign that you are weak,
it just that you are a soft hearted and has a high level of sympathy and empathy.
There is nothing wrong with that extra tears falling down your cheeks. ;)

Have a happy day.
Thank you for spending your time reading this.

7584 Days

Including today, its been about 7584 days since I was born in this world.
That means I have never stop breathing for 7584 days.
If you convert it into years, months, and days.
It will be approximately 20 years, 9 months, and 4 days.

The number 7584 days seems like a little for me.
When I think of it, I have live in this world for only 7584 days.
Every time I open my eyes in the morning, it is Allah swt that gave me the chance to live.
Every time I want to make my way to a place, it is Allah swt who gave me the will.
Every single thing in this it He that make it possible.
Compared to Allah swt whom is the Great..
I am just a tiny dot in this universe, I am nothing compare to Him.

During this semester break, I spent a lot of time with my parents.
and they tought me about a lot of things.
They both tought me to always put Allah swt first before anything.
Ever since I was a child they would told me : 
Each time you wake up in the morning, say "Alhamdullilah."
Each time before you go to sleep, recite surah Al-Fatihah and Ayat Kursi.
Each time before you eat, say "Terima Kasih Mak, Terima Kasih Abah, Syukur Alhamdulillah" as a sign of gratitude.
Even each time before we start our journey to go back to our kampung for Hari Raya,
we would all recite a Doa Perjalanan sama-sama.
For us, Allah swt and intention (niat) are really important in this life.

My father also told me,
In this life, our reason to live is just one.
That is to return ourselves to Allah swt like how He was once created us.
I will translate the meaning to Malay now.
Maksud ayah saya, ialah kita lahir di dunia ini bukan untuk diri kita sendiri.
Malah kita ini hanyalah hamba Allah swt dan lahir untuk mengesa kan Allah swt di muka bumi ini.
Macam mana kita lahir di dunia ini dengan penuh wangi dan suci sewaktu kita bayi,
macam itulah sepatutnya kita pulangkan diri kita kepada Allah swt sewaktu kita mati nanti.
Oleh itu, setiap proses yang kita lakukan di dunia ini teramatlah penting.
Allah swt tidak akan tengok apa yang kita capai, tetapi Dia akan tengok apa yang kita buat untuk capai sesuatu benda itu.

Sebagai contoh,
Duit hasil kerja seorang tukang kebun yang jujur mendapat keberkatan dan diredhai-Nya daripada seorang pekerja korporat yang bermain dengan rasuah. Walaupun duit gaji tukang kebun itu sedikit berbanding dengan pekerja korporat itu, tetapi nilainya sangat tinggi di mata Allah swt.

Can you see the graph above?
This graph shows you that it is important to develop yourself to a better muslim or muslimah.
We are getting older and older every single day.
and as we get older, we should also increase our knowledge and Iman.
Most of the people are always focusing on the knowledge for what will be use in the world
that they neglected the knowledge that they could use here in this world and also for the after life.

Most of people take this thing very lightly.
When they heard about a guy whom is 30 years old and still don't know how to read a book,
you'll be shock and wonder how he live his life these past years.
But if they heard about a guy whom is 30 years old and still don't know how to read an Al-Quran,
many of them would say "Biasalah itu. Ramai apa orang macam dia. "  

Ilmu untuk dunia dan ilmu agama Islam perlu dua-dua bertambah selagi kita masih diberi peluang untuk hidup di dunia ini.
Iman dan Takwa sangat penting dalam kehidupan kita.
Apabila kita hilang di dunia yang materialistic ini, cubalah bangkit balik dan cari balik Iman kita dan pulang kepada Allah swt.

Saya tulis perkara ini kerana saya bermuhasabah diri sebenarnya.
Saya mengaku kadang-kadang susah untuk hati ini sentiasa berbuat baik.
Kadang-kadang on track, kadang-kadang itu off track sangat-sangat.
Saya mempunyai terlalu banyak keburukan dan kelemahan yang bila fikir balik,
malu sangat dengan diri sendiri. and most of all malu sangat dengan Allah swt.
Setiap hari kadang-kadang fikir,
 "Kenapa Allah swt bagi aku hidup dalam ketenangan dan kesenangan walaupun aku dah banyak mengecewakan Dia? "
"Kita dipandang baik kadangkala bukanlah kerana kita benar-benar baik, tetapi kerana Allah swt menutup aib yang ada pada diri kita. Barangkali kalau aib kita dibuka dan didedahkan, tidak ada satu kebaikan pun pada diri kita di mata manusia."

Allah swt itu memang Maha Pengasih dan Penyayang kan?

Saya harap apa yang anda baca ini dapat membuat anda terfikir tentang kebesaran Allah swt.
Jika ada yang saya silap kata, saya minta maaf.
dan kalau ada yang hendak diperbetulkan, beritahu lah saya. Sama-sama kita belajar.
Saya pun baru sahaja belajar dan ilmu agama saya pun sikit sangat berbanding dengan orang lain.
Saya harap dengan apa yang saya share di sini boleh serba sedkit memberi faedah dan ilmu kepada sesiapa yang membacanya.

Japan Family Trip : Day 7 (Our Last Day in Japan)

14th February 2012 
Day 7 in Japan :
  • Pack our bags & luggages & head back to our beloved country, Malaysia.

All the bags were packed & ready to check-in for cargo.

pic name
Last time we rode the subway but this time, since all the bags were so heavy..we rode the bus. This bus lead us directly to Haneda Airport.
pic name
Alhamdullilah, we arrived at Haneda Airport safely.

pic name
See how many bags were there? A lot! :)
pic name

After eight long hours, we all arrived at LCCT Airport.
To be honest, we miss Malaysia so much.
Siap turun daripada flight, dalam kereta terus jerit
" Malaysia Boleh! Malaysia Boleh! " lagi.
Gila kan? haha

Anyway..I want to say thank you for those of you
who followed my journey in Japan in this blog.
The reason I decided to upload and made all this pictures
to be shown to the public is not because I want to show off or anything.

Firstly because it could be helpful for those who want to travel to Japan.
I even received emails of people asking me about
how my sister made the arrangements to travel there.

 Secondly, it is just one of those memories that you know it is
so precious and if you can, you want it to be repeated so many time in your life.
because I know, that one day..all these memories will be forgotten little by little.
That is why I like to captured them in a timeline, with stories & pictures.
So that I would not forget anything about this trip
which filled with so many sweet memories between my family members and I.
It had been so long since we all had a vacation together.
Therefore, it was so much fun! :)
Japan Family Trip ini pun semua secara kebetulan,
susun atur-Nya dan rezeki kami.
If you asked me, I couldn't even imagine that I get to
spend my first semester break in Japan.
Like my mother said, "Rasa macam mimpi sahaja."
After this, London pula!!!
I hope!
*day dreaming*

Please do check my other days in my family trip in Japan.

I google online and found this cheering towel that they sell online on EBay.
I am quite surprise that the price is so expensive.
RM265.14 just for  a cheering towel. Including the postage of course.
Hu..very expensive. When I bought mine, it was just RM48.00.
 Such a difference in price.
See,click here.

Daiso Harajuku - 100 Yen Shop.
 This is one of the largest 100 Yen Shops in central Tokyo, offering a wide array of goods, including clothing, kitchenware, food and stationary on multiple floors at 105 yen per item. It is located only a few steps from Harajuku Station along Takeshita Dori.

Daiso ni macam kedai RM1 kat sana.
Bila 100 Yen tukar pada duit Malaysia, jadi RM4.
Daiso had open many outlets in Malaysia too. But it cost RM5 per item.
RM1 itu untuk charge penghantaran dari Jepun kot.

Anyway,ini sahaja untuk hari ini.
Thank you for sapring your time reading this.
Till then. :)
