When I woke up this morning, I had the strangest feeling that something was not right. I grabbed my phone and checked Twitter to see tweets saying that the Malaysia Airlines aircraft MH370 bound from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing had mysteriously disappeared when it lost contact at 2.40AM.
At first I thought, no, that can’t be. I remember I was an avid fan of Lost and kept on thinking that these kind of events only happen on TV shows, not in real life. Then as the hours passed by with no trace of the aircraft, reality just sort of sunk in and I’ve been having this unsettling feeling ever since.
What a tragedy. After a while I lost all optimism that there would be any survivors. I cannot even begin to imagine what the families of the passengers and crew are feeling right now. I can only offer my prayers that the plane will be found as soon as possible so that they can have closure.
When talking to Allah, Although He never replied back to me through words, I swear I could feel my heart fill up with love.

Dia lebih tahu yang kita butuhkan, walau kadang tidak sama dengan ingin kita, walau kadang sakit sekali rasanya.
Ingatlah bahwa Allah tidak pernah zholim kepada hamba-Nya. Ya, Dia Mahatahu, Mahabijaksana, atas segala.
Ada rahasia terbaik dibalik tiap rencana-Nya.. :)
Allah knows me better:)
In a marriage, one should forget about falling in love. Falling is never a good thing. Love as we know it (from our romantic notions) is simply another word for physical attraction. It lasts usually for a couple of years and then starts to decrease. Since you want your marriage to last a lot longer than that, it is a good idea to focus on respect which will grow into love. Not falling into but growing into. What does that mean? It means that 25 years after you have been married every time you look at your spouse you fall in love all over again. Growing in love means evolving a common language of looks, signals and words that only you two can understand. It is almost magical to see it work. I wish it for all those who read this. That is heaven on earth. So it is respect, honor and dignity that result in love. This love is where your spouse will stand up for you and defend you, never laugh at you in public, be considerate of your faults and hide them and be focused on the many good things that you bring to the marriage. This love means that she/he will not complain about the difficulties that may happen along the way but will work with you to overcome them and stand in the night and cry before Allah and ask for His intervention. This is the person who will never leave your side as long as you live and will pray for your forgiveness when you are gone. In my experience this is the only person who you can rely on to do it, for all others will forget after a while.
Absolutely wonderful. 👏
