Best Birthday Gifts Ever

It was in January/February 2013 when Aziana (a lawyer from Kluang I met late 2012 @ 1 of the weekend courses we attended) bg tau that Bro Nouman Ali Khan akan dtg Malaysia in September. Finally! Aziana suggested I follow Nur Ala Nur Academi on FB, they were the ones yg akan bawa Bro Nouman here. Been waiting for this moment.

with Aziana

There are many scholars/teachers' I listen to on youtube - sambil lipat baju, gosok baju, kemas rumah....Bro Nouman is one of my favourites. He was the 1st teacher I listened to when I first made up my mind to study my religion in depth. May Allah make it easy for me, ameen.

The moment Nur Ala suruh register utk lectures Bro Nouman, within minutes after they posted, saya dgn kiasunya registered. Boleh reserve as many seats as you want but then bila fikir saya pun tak tahu whether any of my friends berminat utk pergi, I reserved 4 seats utk his lectures on 5 & 6th Sept. Khutbah Jumaat saya mmg x boleh pergi sbb sek habis pun after 12. Nak menyampai ke UIA, Gombak, hmmmm....

1st talk - Tafseer Surah Rahman @ Masjid Wilayah, saya ditemani oleh

me, Kelly (coursemate di Law Faculty), Rinie (dulu pernah jd franchisee Q-dees) & Awa (cousin kwn Shahrul). Felt so grateful dpt memperkenalkan mereka kpd 1 sama lain

I was there quite early

kosong lg, bhg dpn utk kaum lelaki

later, 2,3 baris penuh utk solat Asar

All of us reached there quite early, so mmg dpt duduk baris dpn utk muslimah. As a matter of fact, I was the 1st to register utk hari itu, kiasu yg amat.

Oleh kerana awal, mulut x berhenti berckp & 

...mengunyah...

happy faces lps talk

Happy Birthday to me, 41st birthday

The moment Shahrul woke up, he wished me Happy Birthday. Minutes later, Ayan - my younger sis, Elin - my BFF, abah hantar sms - Happy birthday, we love u *nangis*, Shahrin - x-coursemate yg celebrated his birthday a day earlier, Alin - my eldest sister called, Aja whatsapp, Azlina - a friend I met masa buat chambering, she never forgets my birthday since year 2000, Jue - my UM friend wished me masa hantar anak dia. Itu shj, senarai pendek. Every year mmg org yg sama. Malas nak ltk birth date kat FB, so xdelah notification utk FB friends. I was happy dpt bday wishes from these people....cukuplah seramai ini

Back to Nouman Ali Khan...

Rinie called kata she couldnt make it. So yg attended Nouman's lecture @ PWTC were me & Shahrul & a neighbour, Iza yg few times ikut attending Islamic lectures, Alhamdulillah, ada kwn. Mind you, kami hanya kenal melalui our community forum, then bila dia nampak saya posted Islamic events yg saya nak pergi, dia nak ikut serta.


Iza on my right @ Being Me - Divine Liberation 2013


us @ Nouman Ali Khan in Malaysia, PWTC

Again, saya sampai awal. Sempat membeli buku2, payah nak kawal nafs when it comes to books.

Sementara menanti Shahrul, berlegar2 kat situ tanpa arah tujuan. Tanpa diduga mata terpandang kelibat 1 buku, diltk di shelf paling bwh sekali, sendirian tanpa ditemani buku2 lain. SubhanAllah, that book - I'd been searching high & low for it. Cuba beli kat Amazon.com, waited few months x sampai2, nak dpt refund punyele payah. Cari kat One Stop Dakwah Store, Ampang Park (kedai buku kegemaran sekrg ni) pun takde. Diaorg kata boleh order tp might take months sbb publisher bukan Darussalam, tp publisher in UK. Cari juga di Mekah, Madinah masa umrah, takde jugak. What a surprise saya jumpa di situ on my birthday!

Kehadiran Nouman Ali Khan, attending his lecture with Shahrul & finding this book on my birthday - best birthday gifts ever

His lectures will be on youtube soon, insyaAllah. In the meantime, cuba baca nota my junior mengenai lecture haritu
