Does every Tumblr creation needs a reason to its existence? Because I sure as hell can’t think of why mine exists.
The truth is that everyone is bored, and devotes himself to cultivating habits. ~ Albert Camus
Shhh, Albert. Not so loud. Nobody wants to know that almost everything they do in life is to get out of the rut that is boredom.
And this quote is SO not an accurate description of me.
C’mon now, I can think of at least 10 things I do that has nothing to do with avoiding boredom.
No wait, make that 7.
Ok ok, 5.
1. Learning, loving, understanding life through my faith, Islam.
2. Finding out just who the hell I really am deep inside.

I’ve too many excuses for not wearing the hijab even though deep in my heart, I know that to be closer to Allah (swt), my one and only focus should be on Him and not about anything this Dunya has to offer ie my looks, my earrings etc.

Muslim itu tersenyum lalu berkata, “Wanita muslim adalah ratu dan ratu tidak bersalam dengan lelaki asing”
Me rolling around on the carpeted floor as a grandparent read the Quran. I was 4 or 5 years old. I remember feeling so safe and secure and very much loved.

Do not covet what Allah (swt) has conferred more abundantly on some of you than others
4: 32, The Holy Quran
If all Muslims follow these glorious words, the phrase ‘its a dog-eat-dog world’ will be less applicable to real life. The phrase ‘keep up with the Joneses’ may also be on its way to becoming obsolete. There would be lesser people with depression.
Oh, the mind boggles with the endless possibilities.
