Dear Lappy, I don't mean to insult you.

بِسْــــــــــــــــــــــمِ اﷲِارَّحْمَنِ ارَّحِيم

Having to face the laptop screen constantly is really really tiring and exhausting. Mentally and physically. Especially when it takes up your work and leisure time. You don't want to but you have to. Ya Allah please give me strength.

"...reality kerja sgt berbeza dgn kehendak kita."

Girl, it's ok. You only have the temporary lifetime to face the laptop screen. Kat dunia yg fana niiii ja. Kejaaap ja. Sattttt ja. If that's what part of ibadah requires you to do, then do. You only have the temporary lifetime to face the laptop screen. Kat duniaa ni ja. Kejapppp ja. Fasabrun jamila. 

Help me strive ya Allah and be grateful for this great ni'mah of Yours. Amin.

You think you were given laptop to have fun and shut it when you want? With great blessings come great responsibilities. It's a means to a higher end. Be grateful and let's get on with work. 

“Beautiful Patience” 

Allah tells us in surat al ma3rij: 

فَاصْبِرْ صَبْرًا جَمِيلًا 
Therefore [O Believer] endure all adversity with beautiful patience.
And this is a fi3l amr.. a command for us from Allah, so we must learn its meaning and try to practise it. 
The phrase sabrun jameel is most famous from the saying of Sayidna Yaqub alayhi salam upon hearing the news of his son Yusuf, as told in Surah Yusuf: 
فَصَبْرٌ جَمِيلٌ وَاللّهُ الْمُسْتَعَانُ عَلَى مَا تَصِفُونَ

But [as for myself,] patience in adversity is most goodly [in the sight of God]; and it is to God [alone] that I pray to give me strength to bear the misfortune which you have described to me.” 
Here some explanations are given as to the meaning of “sabrun jameel” and what makes it different than just  any normal bit of sabr or low level of sabr:
Mujahid said: “Beautiful Patience is patience without any panic.”
Amr bin Qays said “Beautiful Patience means to be content with adversity and to surrender to the will of Allah.” 
Yunus bin Yazid said: “I asked Rabiah bin Abdurrahman: ‘What is the ultimate of patience?’ He said “to be outwardly the same at the time of affliction as one was the day before it struck.” [this does not mean that a person does not or should not feel pain or anguish: patience in this instance means that one refrains from panicking and complaining.]
Commenting on the meaning of beautiful patience, Qiyas bin al Hajjaj said “the person who is suffering from some afflictions should behave in such a way that nobody is able to distinguish him from others.” 
- From Ibn Qayyim’s “Patience and Gratitude”

رَبَّنَا أَفْرِغْ عَلَيْنَا صَبْرًا
Our Lord, Pour out patience onto us!

I just need to recharge. :)
