“Live in this world as a traveler or a stranger”

On the authority of Abdullah ibn Umar (May God be pleased with them both), he relates that the Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) once held my shoulders and said:

“Live in this world as if you are a traveler or a stranger.” And Abdullah ibn Umar (May God be pleased with them both) used to say: “If you live till night, then do not wait for the next day (i.e. do not have hopes that you will live to the next day), and if you wake up in the morning do not have hope that you will live till the night. And take advantage from your health before your sickness, and take advantage of your life before your death (i.e. do every possible obedience in your life before death comes to you for then no deeds can be performed.)” [Authentic saying of the Prophet approved by Bukhari and Tirmidhi]

Be mindful, be kind, and be grateful with what we have… yesterday, today, or tomorrow (if we still alive, ya?). Praise be to God, count His blessings upon us, grateful to Him, thank Him, remember Him, so that we may be… a grateful servant and a humble person. God Willing / InsyaAllah.

Praise God the Lord, with worthy of praises… Because God, our Creator who created us with love, grace and mercy. Because God, the One and Only God is the Lord of the Worlds, Heaven, Earth and all in between them. While we are just, His humble creation among His many, vast and enourmous creations. And we are only, a servant who live humbly and walk on this world temporarily, just like… a traveler.

I recalled, i was introvert. Extremely introvert. I’m not talk much and but rather like to observe and ponder things around me. Maybe because i’m quite a reserve person or maybe i feel nothing interesting to say or maybe i don’t know what to say, eventhough if i have questions in my mind or what i feel in my heart… i just keep my mouth shut. I speak when i feel necessary, and i speak only with someone i know well, or someone i’m really trust.

But when i meet her, her little introduction Continue reading
