Know Your God

A Quick Introduction To Islam...

The word "Islam" is an Arabic word which means "submission to the will of God". This word comes from the same root as the Arabic word "salam", which means "peace". As such, the religion of Islam teaches that in order to achieve true peace of mind and surety of heart, one must submit to God and live according to His Divinely revealed Law. The most important truth that God revealed to mankind is that there is nothing divine or worthy of being worshipped except for Almighty God, thus all human beings should submit to Him.

A lovely song by Sami Yusuf! What can i say...

lifetime friends - kemanisan ukhuwwah

The most important possessions for me are my friends..

Until now I've met various kinds of people in life. Most of the people I know turned out to be my friend. But amongst them are my true friends I met in high school and the ones with me right now who are there for me unconditionally. They never question, but always offer support no matter what the circumstances are. My best friends are the people worth living for. My friends know every last thing about me including by bad parts, yet still manage to like me. They overlook my failures and with their word of advice I manage to go forward not looking back again.

“If you are lost in the wood, I will find you. If you’re afraid of the dark, I’ll sit beside you.” That is what a true friend would say. Even now I still keep contact with them. Knowing that we are not going to be together again for a while made it really hard for me to leave my country. Even then, they gave me support and wished me all the best.

A friend does not have to be the richest kid in town or a good looking popular guy but what is important to me is a friend who is always close to the heart although being miles apart. The best medicine in life is to have several true faithful friends and gratefully, that is what I have right now.

sincerely to all my best friends out there!
