Welcome to Colour Me Fuchsia!

السَّلاَمُ عَلَيْكُمْ وَرَحْمَةُ اللهِ وَبَرَكَاتُهُ

Hello there! my name is Mila, I used to blog on Viva La Mode and I'd like to tell why I migrated to this blog...

First of all, I'd like to say thank you for being a loyal reader of Viva La ModeFor the new guest, Welcome to my blog! I hope you can enjoy this blog as well as I enjoy sharing my fashion and my life story here.

Viva La Mode was the place where I kept my uncovered styling and stuff. Now, it will be permanently off from updates. Since I was born Muslim (Alhamdulillāh), I must have been covered with hijab since the first day I had entered the puberty which means entering the adulthood too (there is no teenage stage in Islam). But I wasn't covered as I must have been to. Even it is a little later, I finally have strengthened my heart to be covered. 

I am so thankful to الله‎ to be finally given the strong feeling to wear hijab. I have been intended to wear hijab since my inspirational friend; Sabrina Raissa wore it earlier. But, I've always asked myself; "how can I have that strong faith to wear hijab?". I've always been in love with fashion; the world of dressing which universally has no limit. I was scared if I couldn't channel my fashion expressions if I wore hijab. Yes, how shallow I really was!

Then I googled "Hijab Style", and found Hana Tajima's Blog which I found inspiring! Her blog opened the other point of view that hijab can be fashionable too. I concluded that الله‎  gave one bright spot for me to wear hijab without leaving my interest to be experimenting with fashion. But I wasn't instantly covering myself. I was still uncovered while keep tracking to find the way to actually wear it. I like finding inspirations for hijab styling even though I didn't wear hijab at that time. 

It's overheard around my society that wearing hijab is only appropriate for the so called 'perfect', angelic (religiously and characteristically) women. We all know that angels are created to be الله‎ 's stable creature, and they are static whilst human are gifted with intelligence & desires that is influenced by appetency which leads man for making mistakes. I must admit that I don't possess angelic figure on its perfect definition at all. I think if I want to be closer to The All Merciful, why do I have to defer my times to be angelic to reach the purpose or, lets us say: fulfill the obligation wearing hijab? Everything needs process. And to be better at behaving, to always remember الله‎ , hijab is a sort of media that helps me to reach these goals step by step. To be covered is one of the guidances. Eventually, that special intuition (maybe we can call it as hidayah) came from an unexpected intermediary, and I forced myself to wear hijab without felt being forced :). This is why I named my secondary blog:

Colour Me Fuschia 
 Fuschia  is one of thousand colours I like. here is   Fuschia's  profile on Crayola's Colourcencus:
  • Hue Family: Purple
  • Year Introduced: 1990
  • Box introduced into: Box of 64
  • Personality traits for this hue: Majestic, Magical, Visionary, Royal, Intuitive
I found myself in this colour. Intuitive is an adjective that means spontaneously derived from or prompted by a natural tendency. This adjective is so related to how I started wearing hijab! "Natural Tendency" is the universally perfect description of how I started these all. I also can find myself as a visionary, royal, and magical girl! Haha~

Here is the interesting colourful stories of Fuchsia: Fuchsia is not pink or purple. And I love the "betweenness" of this colour. It is not so bright as to overpower but it is not in the shadow either. It's kinda pink, kinda red, kinda purple. I guess you've figured out that I kinda like fuchsia. I like the colour of purple, but it's normally a darker colour. Fuschia is bright, standout shade of purple.

Hopefully, I will be Istiqamah (as told by Sabrina, which means continual). I'm really hoping from my deepest heart to be covered until my last breathe I have on this earth. I'm hoping that I am given the chance to be a good Muslimah, can be the person who always do what الله‎  have commanded, and keep away from what الله‎  have banned. There are so many things I want to learn about Islam, apply the knowledge into my life, and insha Allāh spread the goodness through my actions. Personally, Islam has become the religion that makes me peaceful. Just like its meaning from the arabic root: peace, purity, submission and obedience. Islam also makes my life more alive. I feel so honoured to be a Muslim! And here's one of many reasons why do I feel honoured of being one:
Q.S Al-Baqarah 2:132
"Dan Ibrahim telah mewasiatkan ucapan itu kepada anak-anaknya, demikian pula Ya'qub. (Ibrahim berkata): "Hai anak-anakku! Sesungguhnya Allah telah memilih agama ini bagimu, maka janganlah kamu mati kecuali dalam memeluk agama Islam." 
in English:
"And Abraham instructed his sons [to do the same] and [so did] Jacob, [saying], "O my sons, indeed Allah has chosen for you this religion, so do not die except while you are Muslims."
I literally cried on the first time I read the meaning of that ayah. I couldn't believe that I am one of the chosen ones. Well, All Muslims are the chosen ones. So, be thankful for that. Please don't neglect this precious gift from الله‎ .

Because it also means something like this:
“He is the one who has selected you. Allah is saying, He sees something in you and He decided to give to you Islam. He sees something in you that qualifies you for struggling for Him. We are not Muslim because we were born into a Muslim family. We are not Muslim because we saw a YouTube video and decided to be Muslim, we are Muslim because Allah chose us. He chose us because we have something to offer to Him. He sees something in us, we don’t even see in ourselves.” 
- Ustadh Nouman Ali Khan

 p.s: On 4th June 2012, I've just realized that the word 'fuschia' I have typed here is actually misspelled x_x. It is actually should be spelled 'F U C H S I A'. Oh my, in the eleventh hour~
