Today I have to meet Amanah Raya to sign some papers pertaining my late father’s legacy. It is somehow a mixed feeling. To receive something out of losing somebody very important in my life is not what I wish for. I haven’t talked about the loss for quite some time. Five years to be exact. It was so painful to dig back all the memories, be it bitter or sweet. I just want to keep it deep inside me and remember it just the way it was.

One of the reason I started writing a blog is to share my past memories to the rest of the world. That’s what I thought I could do. However, now that I’m writing this entry, I feel that I don’t have the courage to do that just yet. Although I know I’m the only one reading my own blog, I still couldn’t find the strength to share the intimate thoughts and memories of my love one to the world. The poem I wrote in the previous entry entitle ‘When I think of the day’ is a dedication to my late father who had guided me to be the person I am today… Al –Fatihah…

Coming back to the main topic, you can get detail explanation on faraid at with simulation of the calculation. Such a great website!

Fate or Choice?

So much has been said and wrote about the Maths prodigy, Sufiah Yusof. Anybody who reads the newspaper or internet would know about this young lady, 23 years, who, by fate, or by choice, has made a wrong choice in life. The full story can be viewed here. It is another sad story and we as Muslim around the world feel the heat.

Although we do not know what triggers her to make the decision, here are some thoughts that could be considered to overcome or at least, to avoid being lost in life :

1. Let our children enjoy their childhood.
2. Happy families mattered most and avoid broken marriage.
3. Be a Muslim, by practical.
4. Get help or talk to somebody about your hardship. Let it out.
5. Write a blog.

Believe it or not, there are so many ‘Sufiah’ out there in our country. The only difference is that they are not given the publicity like what Sufiah is getting right now. Sometimes, we do make mistake in our life, but it is again back to us to admit it, regret it, correct it, and our commitment not to repeat. Whatever hardship we are facing, just remember that we are not alone. There is a whole bunch of people out there that we might not know, having the same problem as us. Go back to our Creator, for He will show us the path.
