Today, Tuesday 7th December is new Muslim lunar calender year 1432H. It is an important day and a new year for the Muslim. Maal Hijrah, which is also called Awal Muharam falls on the first day of the Islamic month of Muharam. Awal Muharram, the start of the Muslim year, is based on the date of the Hijrah meaning "migration", of Prophet Muhammad (p.b.u.h) from Makkah to Medinah.
Time flies so fast and it seems lots of things I need to catch up and many of my dreams have not been realized. I miss traveling and visiting new places and see people. There are still many places I want to go like Barcelona, Venice and Florence.I like to see the organic shaped buildings in Barcelona by Antonio Gaudi. I like to see beautiful lakes in Japan. Capture the view and landscape. I want to take photos of John Hancock building in Chicago, USA. I want to visit Mecca and Masjid Nabawi, Insyallah. Amin one day.
So I say insyallah, if god wills. I quote these two beautiful verses from the Quran;
"Indeed, Allah [alone] has knowledge of the Hour and sends down the rain and knows what is in the wombs. And no soul perceives what it will earn tomorrow, and no soul perceives in what land it will die. Indeed, Allah is Knowing and Acquainted. (34) " ( Surat Luqman (34): 31)
"And never say of anything, 'I shall do such and such thing tomorrow. Except (with the saying): 'If God wills!' And remember your Lord when you forget...'" ( Surat Al Kahf (18):24 )
I make dua that I will migrate to become a better person. I make dua may Allah gives me good in this world and good in the hereafter, for my kids, my parents, my family, my friends and all Muslims. Amin. I make dua may our beloved nation, Malaysia continues to prosper and peaceful and safe from power crazy and greedy people who want Putrajaya for themselves, by hook or by crook. Amin.
For all Muslims, my followers, viewers and everybody out there, I wish you all the best and may all you dreams and wishes come true. Life is short, forget about the past and do not worry about the future. Live you life fully today, live in the moment and be present because tomorrow could be your last day on earth. Live your like a traveler or a backpacker because this life is a transition and short and delusions and the hereafter is the destiny and the final stop.
Happy New Year!
Salam Maal Hijrah 1432 , Salam 1 Malaysia , 1 Ummah
