just a thought, if it helps =)

assalamualaikum wonderbears!

wonder because we alls likes to wonders innit.
bears coz we alls likes bears innit.

i tells yewhhh!

ok mars, dah.


so this is a bit awkward. posted a video few days ago and completely forgotten about it.
now that i remember it, kena la explain sedikit sejarah pembikinan video ini.


seorang wanita berumur 25 tahun, mempunyai bakat dalam menyejukkan hati teddy bear. ok dah stop!


so benda ni is something that i've been thinking about for the longest time. it's about us taking pride on being a muslim.
not that it's wrong, but we could always do it in a better manner.

Surah Al-Ma'idah, ayat 3:

This day, i have perfected your religion for you, completed My favour upon you and have chosen for you Islam as your religion.

straightforward, and understandable.

Allah chose Islam as our religion.
you and i, whether we're born into the religion or brought into it, Allah chosen for us this path.

patutkah kita kata "aku bangga doh aku muslim."?

patutkah kita kata "aku beragama islam sebab aku nak."?

Allah berikan kita hidayah, nikmat, rezeki, ilmu, keupayaan, kekuatan, semuanya! Dia beri apa yang kita perlukan, pada masa yang Dia tahu adalah the best time, and the best amount of it!
kita je as humans with brains that can think and consider, contemplate, wonder, think and analyse, we're the ones who will in the end make the choice whether to accept His Gifts, or ignore it.

it's like how my mom hints me about stuff.
masa nak prepare for the wedding, she'll give me options.
option A and option B, let's say. and she will jeling jeling at the option she thinks best, eventhough it is up to me to choose.
and because i trust her, i just ikut je la mana dia jeling tu =p

makes her happy, and of course made us all happy in the end =)

it's like that with life.
we're given choices because maybe, just maybe, that's how Allah wants to see how taat we are to Him.

back to being proud of being a muslim.

i've read so much stuff about how pride will turn into ego. and ego turns to riya', as we must remember, makes all of our efforts of gaining pahala hilang.
pride -> ego -> riya'

The Prophet  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) said: "He who has in his heart the weight of an atom of pride shall not enter Paradise." 

oh sedihnya!!
nauzubillah min zalik.

so that's why i suggested to just make a change at the words we choose to describe ourselves, not just religiously.
even if it's a good thing, we always have a choice of something better.
does that make sense? hehee..

in sha Allah Taala.

Allah knows our intention, Allah knows we meant well. but with abundance of knowledge just waiting for us to grab it, it would be ignorant if we said "oh i've heard of that, tapi tak nak buat pape about it sebab takde orang kata i should."
or something like that =p

syukur is the best feeling anyway right! so lebihkan perasaan syukur! 

alhamdulillah i am a muslim. =')

and because i love you all so much, and i want us all to be in Paradise (amiin!), that's why i wanna share about this!

let's be neighbours in Syurga Firdaus =D


ok so here's the video!

and i'm awkward liddat.
sorry video tak seberapa tapi just amik apa yang patut =)

kalau ada kesalahan, that's all due to my own kekhilafan, kalau ada yang baik dan betul, alhamdulillah syukur, itu semua dari Allah Taala.


ps: awat ni ramai dok salah paham niiii.
simple je. 
just be thankful. 
as a muslim ke, as a girl ke, for getting straight A's in SPM ke, for having the fanciest car in the world ke, for having PS3 ke, for having Coco Chanel as your best friend ke, whatever in the world!
if we can be thankful so something as simple as religion, then it'll be easier for us to be thankful for other things.

itu je my suggestion.

akak tergolong dalam golongan yang memahami =)

ada yang salah faham maksud membanggakan agama.
ada yang beranggap utk menunjukkan ketaqwaan atau level keimanan ialah by being proud.


papepun, kalau kita boleh be proud being a muslim, entah hape lagi kita boleh be proud of kan.

ni just a way to rephrase our sentences in any matter.

relate it all back to Allah.

tu jeeeeee =D

People nowadays want to belong to a certain group and feel the power of it, or i'm sure many muslims feel like they have to defend themselves and so they choose to say they are proud of it, despite all the bad publicity i guess. Being thankful for being a muslim is something you have to think about out and realize for yourself, it is not something you just say without realising it.

I like your thought here and i think we all should think more about what it means being a muslim, instead of just being proud to be one.

my Ustaz said that it's real different between being just a Muslim and being a MUKMIN. anyone can be called Muslim when they're born in Muslim family but then NOT ALL live as real MUKMIN....will share it one day when Ustaz tell us more about being real Mukmin. Alhamdulillah...I'm thankful to be born a Muslim... ^_^ *senyum sampai dahi*

i just think tht proud yg dimaksudkan = tidak malu, cthnye org luar kate islam terrorism la apela, but instead of kalah, we say that we're proud of our religion.that's all mybe, but ape yg kakmaria ckp tu ade jgk betulnye. peaceeeeee
