Motivational Talk bg Ummi, Ustad'z Meddi Speacial Treat, Wisconsin Peeps :)

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيمِ
السلام عليكم

Alhamdulillah2 'ala kulli hal...

semua tetamu dah selamt balik. on saturday, at 3pm, guests started arriving and the event started at 4 something, if im not mistaken. i was in the kitchen with mama and some helpful aunties, cooking away..there were lots of ppl unexpectedly. but, Subhanallah, Alhamdulillah, Allahuakbar lah sbb ramai dapat dtg utk ceramah motivasi from Dr Rubiah :) ade yg kene travel sejam semata2 nk dtg ni..



it was less than formal as i expected. which was fine..didnt become the emcee or needed any for all i know. ayah started and ended the event with a word or two briefly..

Dr Rubiah aka Umi was really energetic, expressive and semua yg sive2 lah at giving her speech. woah. teruja n inspired. such confidence and ilmu Tuhan bg kt umi. with well deserved effort of course.



2 days with umi dan family alhamdulillah mmg meaningful. i tried to make the most of the moments..we shared a room. batrisya (cucunye), umi, and I, all three of us, slept in my room giving enough space for my other friends (from wisconsin, 6 of them) to sleep in the basement. they arrived home from town at 11.30 pm something like that. tak sempat join ceramah..takpe. rezqi lain, inshaAllah. dorng dtg chicago pon sbb nk bjalan2 town n pegi concert..ade Lady Gaga, Black Eyed Peas and many others in a concert held in chi for 3 days..fuh mmg traffic lah.
so anyway,igtkan nk pillow talk or something that night but huhh...everyone was right flattt i tell ya, while myself, it was an overtime for me in the kitchen. mcm baru lepas kenduri..byk benda nk kene kemas. dgn lalat yg byk sbb summer ni. i had to sleep late neverheless, at 2am.

at 4.30am bangun for subuh and alhamdulillah, dapat berjemaah dgn ummi. it was quite an experience. imagine menangis mase berdoa..sape slalu nangis bile doa, angkat tangan? not me...hmm keras hati barangkali. then i ought to cry because of that. instead of working on my crying skill lets be honest..brape kerat yg boleh paksa keluarkan air mata. this is called the involuntary tears? sape yg boleh igt dosa2 dia dan arbitrarily have drops of pearls running down their cheek? not me....
"Ya Allah..selamatkanlah anakku ini.." diucapkkan berkali2 sambil kami bersalaman dan berpelukan.

bile kite solat, it's the purification of the heart. that's the purpose served for solat. actions may appear the same or shall i say, deceiving; but who's really into solat that they're so lost in it, kusyuk sekusyuk2nya..Sayidina Ali k.w. boleh khusyuk dalam sembahyangnya hingga waktu orang mencabut panah di betisnya, dia tidak terasa apa-apa. Sayidina Umar Al Khattab pernah berkata, "Khusyuk itu bukan tundukkan kepala, tapi khusyuk itu dalam hati." serba sikit dalil solat diterima? kita takkan mengerjakn kemungkaran..or shall i say, kita takut lah nk buat dosa. sbb solat 5 waktu tu tiang agama..kalo sembahyang byk2 tapi masih buat jahat, there's something wrong somewhere lah tu. sbb solat is the purification of the heart. Ya Allah..where do I stand? aku masih bertatih..

lepas subuh..aku pergi ke ruang tamu..sambil baca2, tertido plak kat sofa..dan dikejutkan dgn riuh rendah kawan2 wiscon yg dah ready for breakfast. huh. cepat2 lari masuk bilik, buat ape yg patut untuk bersiap.

i had breakfast with my friends and then we watched tv for a bit..channel abc, this weekend it's all about campus crush..so, byk la cite mcm parents trap, mean girls, princess diaries..batrisya suke lah. teman dia kejap. at 11.30 am, ayh hantar dorang ke train station utk blk ke madison, winsconsin..:) all 6 of them. Naimah, Yati, Sara, Ili, Farah, Arif.

while the rest, kami bersiap utk ke rumah ustad. sbelum ramadhan, ustadz nk bg treat sket. dia nk buat makan2..igt kn nk buat BBQ tapi cuaca mcm tak mengizinkan. plus we were up some something even better! Mediterranean food..ustadz ni grad Al-Azhar and he loves to cook. so lucky usss lah :) Alhamdulillah. speical treat indeed!


ustadz masak couscous with wheat grain, some special lauk ayam to go with it and some exotic desserta and to top it off with homemade minty tea. oh yeah, ade homemade cili jeruk jugee! <3 ohh. c'etait sensass! kalah restaurant memane...

kat situ, we said goodbye to each other. before departing, i asked ummi a one personal question...hmm, im still processing it...Islam teaches me to be moderate and reasonable. antara hubungan saye dan manusia, niat tu yg penting..not to please anyone else but to please Allah. Wallahualam bissawab.
