We went out early for Fajr prayers at the Al-Aqsa mosque. A comical sight as we saw Ustaz in a black polo shirt and wearing bright red gloves. He had to borrow his wife's gloves. That walk along the Lions' Gate took us pass the Golden Dome first. What a sight. The shining golden dome. … Continue reading Al-Quds
http://youtu.be/vVWShgimuro?t=5m14s Anthony Green shared his Catholic boarding school experience, and ultimately found Islam. Alhamdulillah. I had the experience of attending a Anglican missionary school during my teenage days. Being a young Muslim, it was challenging but interesting. Why interesting?

To do a bit more. May Allah preserve him. You may follow his tweets and his blogs. Converses of Wisdom by Abdullah Al … Continue reading Converses of Wisdom
Really looking forward to attend Al-Maghrib's Insititue, Fiqh of Salah with Sheikh Abu Easa Niamatullah, over the next 2 weekends, insyaallah. Has always been a fan of his dark humour and straight in the face comments which trigger my thoughts into the many implications and underlying messages. He is the founder I guess of 1st … Continue reading Fiqh of Salah next
I look forward to hear the iqamah... What? U heard osama? I don't care about any osama obama. I care about my "karma" not as in endless cycle of karma... but as in the after life, the akhirah .... and I feel peace when I hear the iqamah.

The Pope announces his retirement which shock my Catholic friends here in Singapore. Inevitably though, it was embarrassing to see a few Muslims friends making jokes about it. Respect should be given...even though the Pope has made some bad remarks on Muslims. Let us remember the good akhlak (noble character) and from our beloved Prophet Muhammad (sallallahu alaihi wassalam) … Continue reading The Pope resigns

Content was about our human need and search for permanence and happiness. Permanent happiness. Why does our ads always portray the keyword "happy"? … Continue reading I will never walk alone
