4 Safar 1439H
During the old days when Safar came,
We were all out of our homes;
Old or young, we were all the same
The war ban was lifted and it was our time
to get back into the battlefield,
to tell the world who was King (Takbir!) When we left for the battlefield,
our homes were empty;
Can you see how it was – all the sincerity?
Today it is Safar,
but it is sad, because all we see are not homes,
but our hearts, that are empty
Safar: the second month in the Islamic calendar. Its literal meaning is ‘empty’. During this month, houses used to be empty and deserted because the ban on going to war in the month of Muharram (first month in the Islamic calendar) came to an end and everyone proceeded towards the battlefield. — @thepoetscoffee (link in bio for their Telegram channel!) #poetsphere
We had a beautiful weekend back in KL for #KonBH2017 - Konvention Buku Hijrah 2017. reading has always been one of our favourite things to do and we are grateful to have this opportunity to meet our favourite authors and get our hands on the books we've been eyeing for.
books are magical things that bind people together. we hope our community will never stop learning, reading and writing, inshaAllah ❤️

Esok Belum Tiba
--- Oh bintang setia,
menari di angkasa,
khabarkanlah pada mereka,
sesungguhnya nikmat didunia,
itu hanya sementara.
moga terus bernyawa,
khabarkanlah pada meraka,
sesungguhnya nikmat di syurga,
itu kekal selamanya — Nastia // everything comes to a full circle, and each day is a second chance to do better - now we've got an entire new year inshaAllah. @aidaazlin_ once told me that we always do things better the second time round. so here's to a better year, inshaAllah. bismillah, 1439H 💪🏼✨
what this year's eid adha taught me:
1. to serve selflessly, no matter who you are, and where you are serving
2. that all rewards come from Allah, and only Allah – so if people don't appreciate or acknowledge what you do, so be it because you are not doing it for them
3. that sacrifices come in all forms, and not just once a year by doing korban – it takes place daily, and its something we need to always be conscious of. the sacrifice that takes place in yourself, the battle between you and your nafs, etc
the struggle is different for everyone, so are the sacrifices we make. that's why no sacrifices is ever too small, inshaAllah.
do it, for Allah. let's do it because of our love for Allah - and may Allah love you in return ❤️
the early, magical zulhijjah days are coming to its peak. make lots of duas - remember me in yours ❤️ #9zulhijjah
it takes courage to do a lot of things. sometimes we lose it and we take some time to find it again. we'll find it everytime, eventually, inshaAllah 💪🏼
we have been quiet but thank you so much for your messages, for checking up on us, for still remembering us 😭 Eid was a busy month and we are glad to have settled down.
we also had such a beautiful and amazing weekend over at #spiritualsummit2017 by @safinahinstitute, hats off to them for the splendid event, and we saw someone wearing our tote out at the event!!!! Alhamdulillah.
the spiritual summit was much needed, and we are grateful to have been able to be present in such a blessed gathering. the asatizahs were top notch, no less! #supportlocalasatizah
here's to a beautiful week ahead as we try to move on from our Summit withdrawal 😂😭 for everything: email@example.com ❤️
a friend reminded me of this beautiful doa:
Allahumma nawwir quluubanaa bil Quran, wa zayyin akhlaaqanaa bil Quran, wa najjinaa min an-naari bil Quran, wa adkhilnaa fil jannati bil Quran
Ya Allah! Fill our hearts with light through the Quran, beautify our character through the Quran, save us from the Hellfire through the Quran and enter us into Jannah through the Quran.
ameen ya rabb! may we never be strangers with the Quran ❤️ here's to the final jumaah in syawal ✨
