Alhamdulillah, Alhamdulillah, Alhamdulillah. All praises to Allah, the Almighty and Selawat to prophet Muhammad s.a.w (peace be upon him).
I was born today. 26 years ago. Means I have lived for 26 years in this temporary world. I am married at 26, pursued for more knowledge at 26, and evolved to a true woman at 26. 26 is very dear to me in my heart.
I showed my gratitude with a long prostration (sujud). I am grateful. I am grateful. I am indeed grateful for the past 26 years and the future that awaits me (InsyaAllah). I spent a long time on Sejadah thinking and muhasabah. After getting married, I was bestowed with peace and ease. And with those two in my hands, I felt closer to the Almighty. I felt lighter. My husband sense my changes too. A day before my 26th birthday, I asked him.."Is it too late to become a Hafizah? I think I can do it. If I start now and bless with longer life.." Hubby replied "Of course, start little by little, with a short surah". Nodded.
"Dear Allah, thank you for Islam, Iman, the world you had given me, and a man that you gave me so that I have a leader to guide me to Your way. I would like to express my gratitude by becoming a very good servant of You. Please guide me all the way"
