Allahu akbar. Ghazzah telah menang. Aku gembira. Tapi tentulah kegembiraan ini lebih menghamburkan airmata hamba2 Allah yg sangat bertaqwa & sangat mendalam cinta mereka.
Ini telah membuktikan bahawa janji Allah itu benar.
Ini telah membuktikan bahawa Allah itu Maha Menepati Janji.
Juga membuktikan bahawa kitab suci AlQuran itu benar.
Bahawa solat Jama’ah itu mempunyai kekuatan.
Bahawa perpaduan itu mempunyai kehebatan.
Bahawa keimanan itu adalah keselamatan.
Bahawa doa itu benar2 peluru yang menembak tepat pada sasaran.
Tiada kata2 yg mampu benar2 mengagungkan kebesaran Tuhan.
Teruskan. Mari kita teruskan berdoa.
Untuk umat Islam yang masih terzalimi - di Syria, di Iraq, di Mesir.. di mana2pun. Bahkan di negeri yang aman, yang terzalimi oleh nafsu sendiri.
Apabila kemenangan sudah dirasai.. Sekarang tahukah kita apa lagi yang menanti?
So i was laying back on the sofa in the family lounge looking out the wall-sized window. Its been raining non-stop here and there seems to be no sign of a sunny day ahead. I was suddenly reminded of my tea date with arif at this little place called The Crumblin’ Cookie back in Leicester only because I’m missing the sunny breezy spring weather of the UK (yes, the weather isn’t all bad though it was for most of the time). But most of all, i was reminded of my first cup of Chai latte. Actually I ordered matcha latte at the time but they got the order mixed up and brought over the Chai instead. Since I was too thirsty I couldn’t be bothered to have it replaced so I gave a warm smile to the waitress and took a sip. Believe me you when I say it was like a symphony in my mouth! Okay, maybe I’m exaggerating it just a tad bit but as I was saying, I didn’t regret it at all.
Have a sip and your tastebuds would just burst with the sweetness of the cardamom paired perfectly with the rich milky taste of the cream and oh…the aroma of the cinnamon… Each and every flavour in the cup just blend perfectly together.
Finding my self drooling all over the couch I decided to make my self a cup of Homemade Chai latte and the result turns out to be superb! All you need to make it happen are
A cup of water
2 bags of tea (if the tea bags were torn just use the tea filter)
1 cinnamon stick
2 whole cardamoms
2 whole cloves
2-3 slices of ginger
Milk (or cream of richer taste)
Sweetener / raw sugar
You just have to boil the tea and the spices together, add in the sugar and milk and voila!! You have before you a cup of aroma therapy tea!
I don’t really have anything to say except that I miss him so much and I still can’t believe that we’ve only met once over the summer holiday. Can you imagine it? Knowing that he’s close but not quite and what more; I have to look at all the instagram posts about all the other couples having romantic breakfast/lunch/hi-tea/dinner together and can’t do anything about it.
I know this issue isn’t really as important as someone fighting with cancer, or losing a job or I don’t know…Ebola? But to anyone out there who’s probably in the same situation as I am, I hope that by actually saying what I’m feeling and thinking out loud here, it could give you an equally needed if not politically correct kind of comfort.
