Strong enough



A secret that was told too much
Flew from ear to mouth
They talk about my feelings
They talk about who I am inside
One secret is all they need and
They think they know me oh-so-well
Though none got me right and all got me wrong
Still despite it all, I was stripped naked
I was standing in front of them all
Powerless of saying or doing anything
When all I want to do is cry myself to sleep
They told me to put on a strong face
They told me to fight it
Yes, they were my pick-me-ups; I can’t deny it
When all I want to do is stay, flattened
on the ground and just weep
They told me to put up a brave front
They told me to hold the fort, don’t run
As if what I am doing right now is not brave enough
As if my tears shouldn’t fall or kept as pools in my eyes
When all I want to do is cry myself to scream
Let me grieve and let me weep so I can feel
After all the pain I have hidden
After all the tears I have forgotten
Still they think I am not strong enough

Hey you,
If I was not, you would not be standing here
but near my graveyard stone, you would be standing on dear.

“When you see a female dressed in a manner that is unacceptable islamically, do not for a moment think that she is lower than you spiritually. If you do that, you are lower than her. Believe me, that is the teaching of your religion. She might have a link with her creator that you do not know about. She might have a heart that is tons better than yours. She might have one weakness that is outward, and you have 50 weaknesses that are hidden” - Mufti Menk.

Jangan.
Yang namanya HAKIM itu hakikatnya hanya Tuhan kerana tiada yang lebih adil selain Dia yang Maha Adil. Belajarlah untuk berbaik sangka walaupun sukarnya seperti meletakkan tangan pada bara. Kita cuba.

Setiap kali terlintas sesuatu yang buruk di fikiran tentang si fulan atau si fulan, cepat- cepat kita istighfar dan berkatalah pada Tuhan "Ya Allah, jauhkan aku dari sangka-sangkaan. Kau tariklah semua rasa buruk sangka ini dan gantikan rasa rendah diri. Beri kami taufik & hidayahMu agar kami boleh sama-sama mengecap syurgaMu"

Orang yang kita hina & benci hari ini boleh jadi lebih mulia di mata Pencipta dan mungkin dia mati dalam keadaan beriman & sempat bertaubat. Kita? Siapa beri jaminan?

Renung-renungkan...

Flirty Friends

Reminiscence of past conversation:
 

"Hi. You doin OK ke?"
"Well, I'd say, separuh OK. sighh..."
"Oh? Well, what can I do to fulfill the other half? wink wink"

Flirty friends.
-They are both a friend and a person who flirts a lot. To me, they are generally harmless. However, these people should not be permitted to just flirt where ever, whenever they want. Fitnah, yes, tend to happen if flirting is done unwisely. So, flirty friends are quite harmful too sometimes. Especially if the activity affects the well-being of the friendship; normally if it causes misunderstandings among non-involved people. To me, the safest way to flirt on the friendly basis is to be done privately, just among the two. It's really unnecessary to flirt in front of everybody since such flirting is understood to be an act of "fooling around" or, I'm-bored-so-lets-flirt. In other words, its purpose is to delight the emotions or, to brush up pick-up lines skills, maybe. Personally, I think it's OK to do this with friends. And I mean, with only single friends that is. Hurmm... but well, somehow, I think when flirting is inevitable, it is also at the same time, pointless. So, why are we doing this, again? idk.
