The greatest danger is not that we aim too high and miss it but that we aim too low and reach it.


To achieve great things, two things are needed: a plan, and not quite enough time.

Leonard Bernstein, US conductor and composer.

Verses taken from Surah Al-Fatir, which means the originator of creation.

9. And it is Allah Who sends the winds, so that they raise up the clouds, and We drive them to a dead land, and revive therewith the earth after its death. As such (will be) the resurrection!

11. And Allah did create you (Adam) from dust, then from Nutfah (male and female discharge semen drops i.e. Adam’s offspring), then He made you pairs. And no female conceives or gives birth but with His knowledge. And no aged man is granted a length of life nor is a part cut off from his life (or another man’s life), but is in a Book. Surely, there is easy for Allah.

12. And two seas are not alike: this is fresh sweet and pleasant to drink, and that is salt and bitter. And from them both you ear fresh tender meat (fish), and derive the ornaments that you wear. And you see the ships cleaving (the sea water as they sail through it), that you may seek of His bounty, and that you may give thanks.

13. He merges the night into the day (i.e. the decrease in the hours of the day), and He merges the day into the night (i.e. the decrease in the hours of the day is added to the hours of the night). And He has subjected the sun and the moon: each runs its course for a term appointed. Such is Allah, your Lord: His is the kingdom. And those, whom you invoke or call upon instead of Him, own not even a Qitmir (the thin membrane over the date-stone).

The beauty of this surah is the knowledge that we can learn from it. Bear in mind, the Quran was revealed more than 1400 years ago and no one had such great knowldege at that time. Doesn’t this prove that Al-Quran is the Word of God?

A good reminder to all of us.

Lebih baik meninggalkan dunia sebelum meninggal dunia.

Bersedekahlah sehingga kaya bukan sudah kaya baru nak bersedekah.

Beramallah sehingga ikhlas jangan pula menunggu ikhlas baru hendak beramal.
