Before Sharing Good News


Hai Incik Bloggie!

Lama tak post bed time story kat sini kan... So far ada few stories nak share tapi belum berkesempatan. 

But for tonight, tak ada bed time story lagi...ngee...Lemme share something that I've read.  Maybe we can have a bedtime story next time... inshaAllah... semoga diberi kesempatan lagi!  :)


Before you "share" your good news, consider this:

You know that feeling when something amazing happens to you and you cant wait to share it with the world? Learn to wait. Here’s why:

1. When any good news came to the Prophet (salAllahu alayhi wa salam) or if a calamity had been averted, he would immediately fall in prostration (sajdatul shukr) and thank Allah for it. This is a beautiful sunnah that should be practiced all the time and not just for major occasions like graduations, new homes, etc.

2. Take a few moments to really deeply say Alhamdulilah from the depths of your heart. That will be a form of maintaining that blessing as Allah will see your sincere gratitude.

3. Some of the scholars say that one of the reasons Allah did not allow Zakariyya (alayhis salam) to speak for 3 days except for words of praise was to bestow a greater appreciation of the blessing upon him. Al Baghawi (ra) said that is because sometimes when you speak about your blessings to others immediately, you lose yourself in your excitement.

So from now on when something good happens to you, hold off on the phone call, text, email, or status. Say takbeer, go into prostration, say subhana rabbi al a’ala the way you do in your prostration in prayer, AND add a personal note of dua and thanks to Allah from the depths of your heart before you rise.

Shaykh Omar Suleiman


A simple reminder to myself and uolllss too. I believe,
all of us aware about this, but sometimes...'kita manusia mudah terleka...' and yeah me too...

That's all from me. Just a reflection before I go to sleep. Semoga bermanfaat!

Semoga esok still ada chance nak bangun awal yowww & May Allah ease our day. Maafkan salah silap hamba Allah ini. Selamat malam dunia penuh pancaroba.

Till we meet again Incik Bloggie!
