Raya 2015 (Part 1)

Raya yg biasa2 je kot. Tak pernah looking forward to raya. I dislike raya shopping. So stressful. But it has to be done. I dislike raya traffic. so scary. My FB timeline today is filled with accidents report! nauzubillah..
Apart from d food and moments with family members, raya is bland for me. its too stressful. however, this year, i am looking forward to a full week in SABAH! So that is going to be my Raya part 2. 

I'm excited about that. Itu je. Now back in the office when everyone is still beraya, is so boring! Ramadhan... I miss you already!

Ramadhan 2015

All praises to Allah. It has been a fulfilling Ramadhan indeed. A stark difference between last year and this year's Ramadhan for me. Some of the highlights this year:

1. Able to perform solat Taraweh at Masjid Tuanku Mizan, Putrajaya (This is the first for me)
2. Iftar at Masjid Tuanku Mizan (Another first)
3. Taraweh at Masjid Kajang
4. Iftar at home with my awesome housemates
5. Taraweh at home in my own room. (This is another first for me)

I am still trying to khatam the Quran. May Allah grant me ease. It would be so awesome if I get to finished the whole Quran in time.

So tomorrow is the day I'm going home. I will be fetching my dad at KL Sentral first because he has doctor's appointment at IJN. After that, we are going to visit a friend in KPJ Damansara. I am thinking of doing a bit of shopping with my dad, we'll see how, tomorrow.

Pictures will be uploaded later, insyaAllah.


Down Syndrome's Baby

So recently a colleague of mine found out that she is expecting a baby. She was married about a year ago. She kept the secret under wrap for quite some. She was worried to tell anyone since she is slightly older than the average women who is expecting the first child.

So, she underwent all this checks to make sure the baby is healthy and normal. One of the test she took was a test to determine whether she will have a down syndrome baby or not. I am the type of person who loves to keep inquiring and at the same time observe how people think and  just reflect on my self. One of the burning question was " What would you do if the test result shows that the baby has down syndrome?"

Without any hesitation, she answered, "I will go for abortion. I know it is wrong, but I don't want the baby to suffer and I don't want to suffer."

Being the person who loves to share, I told her. In Islam, those who has special needs like down syndrome, they are very special. We call them people of paradise.Why? They are created by God to live and enjoy the world without facing any consequences. They could not think for themselves, they teach us to be patient. So to those families who are blessed with such special people, know that God is testing them.

If they are patient, if they take care of those who could not take care of themselves, those family will be rewarded with paradise as well.I told her, special need baby is a blessing. If you have one, just take care of the child. In the hereafter, the child will take care of you.

Anak aset ke syurga. How we mold them, care for them shall determine your life in the hereafter. Be grateful if you already have children of your own. I pray that God will given me children of my own one day.

Ameen
