Tak kenal maka tak cinta

      One of the good things that happen in Ramadhan every year is that those who teaches the afternoon session get to go back early ;) (who's not happy about it?)Though the classes ended early, yet I still have to travel an hour before reaching home.

1 hour = 60 minutes = 3600 secs

Now, that's a lot of seconds.

As to utilize all the time that I have ,while driving, I would usually turn to ikim or hotFM for entertainment.
Ikim would most of the time be intellectually engaging, I love that. It keeps my mind busy. Whereas hotFM, is just for the ears, just for some noise.

I guess the talk on ikim today incited me to update my blog today ;)

It was Brother Shah Kirit talking. I've always adore those who reverted to Islam. Among them: Yusuf Islam, Brother Ridhwan Tee, Yusof Estee, Suhaib Web, Brother Shakour and Matin (my lecturers in IIUM). They have an understanding of Islam that is super much better than myself-one who's a Muslim through heredity. I do feel ashamed of myself and its a fact...

"Iman tak dapat diwarisi dari seorang ayah yang betaqwa" - Raihan.

The DJ asked Shah Kirit," Macam mana anda boleh menjadikan Allah dan Rasul cinta yang pertama-tama sedangkan anda seorang muallaf?"

And he replied, "Mcm pepatah melayu kata, tak kenal maka tak cinta".

So the question now is, "Adakah aku kenal? Adakah aku cinta?"

رَبَّنَا ظَلَمْنَا أَنفُسَنَا وَإِن لَّمْ تَغْفِرْ لَنَا وَتَرْحَمْنَا لَنَكُونَنَّ مِنَ الْخَاسِرِينَ
Surah al-A'raaf 7:23

Our Lord! We have sinned against ourselves, and unless You grant us forgiveness and bestow Your mercy upon us, we shall most certainly be lost!
