·        The first thought that make her change is when she ask herself what she going to do with herself. Since, Islam is a thinking religion (requires knowledge) :

We need to think about ourselves?
What am I going in coming years?

·        Start thinking and questioning ourselves after  we read the al-Quran.
·        Go and spread good news about Islam, not harmful message about Islam. Do not stop sharing/spreading good things to people.
·        It is never late to change.
·        Forgive yourselves before you ask for Allah’s forgiveness. But before that, ask yourselves if you are really sincere to ask forgiveness to Allah. Forgive others who surround us, because Allah is the most Forgiving.
Allah SWT says in the Quran:

Say: 'O My servants who have transgressed against your own souls:
do not despair of God's mercy, for God forgives all sins.
It is He who is the Forgiving, the Merciful.' (39:53)

·        Our iman always increase and decrease at all the time. So, it us to comeback to al-Quran.

      Quotes from Dr Asri Zainul Abidin “Islam in Malaysia:Perception & Facts”

·         Islam is a religion established by reason and evidence.
·         Islam does not exist without reason.
·         The religious opinions of the esteemed, of an Ustaz should not be swallowed without proper chewing.
·         The practice of blind taklid (immitation) was never thought by any Imam of the Ahl Sunnah wa’l-Jamaah - the Imams have demanded that each person must strive to build his or her own intellectual ability.
·        Islam has become increasingly RITUALISTIC . The essence of the religion has been lost
·         The spoon feeding culture that does not THINK nor ask Questions nor wanting to look for answers.
“the common tendency is for Islam to spread as a cultural trait, emphasis being placed more on rituals that are performed , without fully understanding of their significance” – The Malays their problem and future.
-Syed Hussein Ali-

Let's try this akhawat ohsem! XD

1. Buy a copy of The Quran, carry it with you!
2. Never leave home without it!
3. Read it and understand it DAILY start by 1 ayat a day. Ponder, think, reflect.
4. Learn to perfect your Tajweed
5. Write down any ayat that touches your heart
6. Share the touches verses with others
7. Memorize it
8. Find peace in The Quran
9. See the difference in you!

So, why don’t we read al-Quran daily?
ayat-ayat cinta Dia

Surah Yunus (10:57) - healing for the (diseases) in your hearts,- and for those who believe, a guidance and a Mercy.
Surah An-Nur (24:30-31) – lower your gaze, guard your modesty, protect your private part and your dignity, should not display their beauty and ornaments except what (must ordinarily) appear there.
Surah Al-Ahzab (33:59) – wearing jilbab so that we are easily recognize and will not disturb by others.

tadabbur surah al-fatihah :

Let’s ponder, think and reflect !!!

·         What are you struggling with now?
·         What must you do to overcome this?
·         When will you start?
·         Let’s return to Allah. Let’s find our real selves, our fitrah.
·         “The nearest of you to me on the Day of Judgment will be the one who is best in character.” (Bukhari)
·         Allah is closer to man than his jugular vein (50:16)
·         Remember Me, I will remember you (2:152)
·         Let’s set our priorities right:

"I want Allah to love me. I need Allah to like me. I do not want Allah to leave me alone in the dark.
May Allah bless us all. Amen. Remember we are judged by our intention as well as our actions - actions with limbs cannot contradict your tongue."

 See, we all make mistakes. Prophet Adam made a mistake. And so did Iblees. Prophet Adam worshiped Allah - but so did Iblees. The difference between the two was that when Adam made his mistake, he realized his desperate need for Allah’s forgiveness, while Iblees showed arrogance and did not repent.
