Takbeer Night

My calligraphy artwork for an art assignment at high school (made on 23rd September 2008)
Allaahuakbar.. Allaahuakbar.. Allaahuakbar..
La Illaaha il-lal-lahu Allaahuakbar.. Allaahuakbar.. Wa lillAllahil hamd.

Allaah is the Greatest.. Allaah is the Greatest.. Allaah is the Greatest..
There is no one worthy of worship except Allaah, Allaah is the Greatest..
Allaah is the Greatest.. and to Allaah belongs all praise.

Today is 9th of Dzulhijjah and how lovely it is to be able hearing the takbeer night!
and tomorrow will be 10th of Dzulhijjah, in Shaa Allaah.
Eid Al Adha Mubarak
for all the muslim ummah out there.. :) 

"Their meat will not reach Allah , nor will their blood, but what reaches Him is piety from you. Thus have We subjected them to you that you may glorify Allah for that [to] which He has guided you; and give good tidings to the doers of good." (Q.S. Al-Haj (22) : 37)

Today I changed my attribute thrice, and I ended up going for dinner in these.

Sahih International: And the Hereafter is better for you than the first [life].

Sahih International: And your Lord is going to give you, and you will be satisfied.
Indonesian: Dan kelak Tuhanmu pasti memberikan karunia-Nya kepadamu , lalu (hati) kamu menjadi puas.

Sahih International: Did He not find you an orphan and give [you] refuge?

Sahih International: And He found you lost and guided [you],
Indonesian: Dan Dia mendapatimu sebagai seorang yang bingung, lalu Dia memberikan petunjuk.

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيمِ

Sahih International: Have you seen the one who denies the Recompense?
Indonesian: Tahukah kamu (orang) yang mendustakan agama?

Welcome to my sister who is just started blogging! Horray!
The picture above was taken by my brother in law who's sort of wacky. He likes to take pictures of us with a very weird perspective. LOL. 

Abu Usamah

I'd like to share my favourite Qur'an reciter whose name is Abu Usamah. From what I found on wikipedia, he's a mualaf (revert). Masha Allaah.. and now he's an Imam at Green Lane Masjid in Birmingham, England. Firstly, I accidentally found his Qur'an recitation Surah Al-Fiil to be put on my tumblr blog. I was instantly soothed hearing his recitations. His voice is so beautiful, smooth, and he doesn't read it too fast. That's why his recitations are very easy-listening for some people like me. Gladly, on soundcloud website, we can download some of the files there. And mostly Abu Usamah's recitations are surah makkiyah, the ones that are more easier to be memorized. It really helps to memorize some Surah in the Qur'an when we listened to it repeatedly. You can see my playlist here. I really recommend to play the playlist above. Hopefully you'll get 'that' feeling too. 

There are so many great Qur'an reciters out there. Most of them are people I don't know. I rarely go to the 'live' Qur'an recitation (pengajian). I mostly read the Qur'an alone. Oh! How I wish I could improve my Qur'an recitations and surely the most important is the understanding of it, and how I practice the Qur'an in my daily life. In Shaa Allaah.. wish the rest of my life can be fulfilled with beneficial knowledges.
