I've realized that sometimes you've got to open your eyes and realize what your priorities are in life. As much as playing soccer outside maybe fun for a little boy, he needs to pray first then continue his play.

Today, I've realized my priorities. Alhamdulillah, I have commited myself to do something and lately I have been slacking off on. Instead, I've started to do others things and that made me lose time for the important things.

As much as other things can be fun to start with , it's important that we concentrate on what needs to be done first so that what's most important is already done. After completeting our important tasks, inshaAllah there will be room for fun and more fun. :)

Random fact #4

I still don't know what I want to be when I'm older. Although, there is one thing I want to include in it, and that's to have it benefit someone and that there space for Islam in it (of course I'm not thinking of anything haram!)

InshaAllah, I find a career that shall benefit me and others in this life and in the hereafter. :)

Random fact #2

I'm 16 and I still don't know how to cook. Should I be ashamed of myself?

I know for sure that if I went to my 'old country' , they'd look at me with disgust and say: 'Shame! Astaghfirullah! *spits on floor* what will you do when you get married? WHO will marry you! Shame...! I bet she can't even make tea!'

Yeah, well, I know how to make tea alhamdulillah. (I think. It's been a while) I don't know what's stoppping me from cooking though. I guess I've never really wanted to do it until I'm 18 or something (my mom has been reminding me constantly saying : ' Today I'm gonna teach you how to cook.', but then I'd leave the room lol).

InshaAllah, I'll learn to cook someday, maybe even during the summer, Allahu 'Alem. :)


@Little Auntie- Wa 'alaykumu salaam sis! :D I've read your comment but unfortunatly with my sucky internet connection, I can't answer to it via comment. :/ I can't really comment on any blog actually. :( But yes, it is nice and alhamdulillah, I feel like I'm more sincere and real this way instead of feeling like I'm putting up a show for my friends when they are reading ( does that make sense? :)) Wasalaam. xx

Random Fact #1

My friends don't know that I have a blog. If anything, they think I don't know how to work a blog and everything, but that's what they think. 

One day, I had a friend babble on about how to use Blogger and I was listening to her as if I didn't really know how to use one. To be honest, I like it that they don't know about Seeking Jannah becuase this blog lets me be me and lets me express myself the way I've always wanted to express myself. :)

Alhamdulillah, I like it like this and I won't change the way it is now. :)

P.S.- Please keep my mom in your du'as. She hasn't been feeling well lately... JazakumAllah Khair (May Allah reward you with good.)

I'm still alive

Alahmdulillah, lol. I'm sorry for the long period of silence, school has been stressing me out and it has demotivated me from possting anything in this blog...

The good news is that school is finally over so inshaAllah, I'll be able to return to posting my boring posts again. There's a few things though that I'd like to change here though:
  • the template
  • the url( I'm still debating on that one)
That's pretty much it. I don't know what else to say. I look forward to posting again!

Asalaamu 'alaykum wa rahmatullah,

A Blessing and A Mercy


"And We send down blessed water (rain) from the sky, then We produce therewith gardens and grain (every kind of harvests) that are reaped. And tall date-palms, with ranged clusters; A provision for (Allah's) slaves. And We give life therewith to a dead land. Thus will be the resurrection (of the dead)." [Surah Qaf 50:9-11]

Allah has mercy on us all the time, even when we don't notice it.
You can see, alhamdulillah.
You can hear, alhamdulillah.
You can smell, alhamdulillah.
You walk, you talk, you smile, you breathe.
Alhamdulillah ir Rabbi'l Alameen.

It was raining today I thought of making a post on mercy and the blessed rain. People can find the rain annoying, but I find it amazing. Sometimes we need the water to wash off all the dirt from the earth and nourish it to grow again. It's  something beautiful, subhanAllah. :)

May Allah swt have mercy on us all, ameen.

...Where am I?

You know that feeling when you feel so utterly lost in the inside? Like you don't know where you are heading in life or what the wisest thing to do with yourself would be? That's what I've been feeling right now and I hate it...

I'm sorry I haven't posted for a while. I sorta have writer's block/work/sadness/laziness/an identity crisis/. I'm gonna try to post something soon inshaAllah.

Please make dua' for me everyone. May Allah azzawajal ease your affairs and bless you always. Ameen.

Wasalaamu 'alaykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh.

Surah Maryam - Beautiful and Heart Trembling Quran Recitation (Mary)

I absolutely love surah Maryam. It's , I can't even explain how much my love for this surah is. I just love it. I love how Allah SWT has showed us how righteous and blessed Maryam and the Prophets were. Allahu Akbar, I bear witness that the Qur'an is the Speech of the One that is the Only One of worship, and that is Allah subhaana wa ta 'ala.

Here's Qari Youssef reciting the beginning of surah Maryam.


Ps. - Sorry for no real post, with all this work I've got to do, I'll try my best to post something next time inshaAllah. :)

Day 22- 28: Mistakes


All praise and thanks be to Allah SWT for letting us recognize our mistakes. If we couldn't recognize them, we wouldn't know how to improve ourselves. For the past few days, I've recognized the mistakes I've been doing and alhamdulillah I'm going to change and improve myself inshaAllah. I used to want to be like this one girl in my high school because she seem so firm in her deen, but now as I grew, I've noticed that she was probably not the right role model to look at ideally. I've decided that I should look at the Great women of Islam, how they were in their lives and what they did to become such righteous women. May Allah SWT make you and I like the righteous women of Islam and grant us and the whole Ummah Jannat al -Fridaws. Ameen.


P.S- I'm sorry I haven't posted lately, I've been very busy with my hifdh. Please make du'a that Allaah SWT eases my hifdh for me. JazakumAllah Khair.

Day 15, 16 &17: Mothers

Al-Adab al-Mufrad Al-Bukhari
by Imam Bukhari

Mothers are merciful

89. Anas ibn Malik said, "A woman came to 'A'isha and 'A'isha gave her three dates. She gave each of her two children a date and kept one date for herself. The children ate the two dates and then looked at their mother. She took her date and split in it two and gave each child half of it. The Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, came and 'A'isha told him about it. He said, 'Are you surprised at that? Allah will show her mercy because of her mercy towards her child.'"

Alhamdulillah for mothers, alhamdulillah!

Day 13&14: Cute Little Poem to Share with You

Since it's Valentines Day, I have this poem  written by 'prayingforabrighterday to share with you. Here it goes,:

Roses are red, violets are blue
Celebrating Valentines is what the Kufaars do. 
Shaytaan's present between the intimate two, so remember O Muslim it's Haraam for you!

Alhamdulillah, we don't need an annual day to love someone. We can love someone strongly everyday. :)

Day 7: What Is On Our Tongue

For some, they have swear words on their tongue, it rolls off easy for them. Others, it's difficult an it doesn't roll off their tongue. Alhamdulillah, I am of the second group, I hardly swear. As Muslims, we have to be of those who don't swear. Swearing is no good and it's no excuse if you say "it helps me to express myself". Alhamdulillah, we have a big dictionary with many words one can use to 'express' oneself.

May Allah swt make it easy for others to stop swearing and help them say words of khair instead, Ameen. :)

Day 5&6: What We Have


Alhamdulillah for everything Allah swt has giving me and you.

I'm sorry wasn't really being up-to date with my project, it's hard getting access to the net now. :/ But this weekend, I've remembered something every important, that is to be thankful for everything we've got because there are people out there who wished they have what we have. SubhanAllah. So it's always important to remember to say alhamdulillah for everything Allah swt has given us.

Day 3 &4: Hijaab


Alhamdulillahir Rabbi'l Alameen for giving me and all the Muslim women a beautiful gift, the hijaab.

Alhamdulillah, hijaab that saved me so many times, it has reminded me of Allah swt so many times. If I didn't have the hijaab, I think I'd lose myself. WAllahu Alem. I can't live without it, it's like living without clothes. I just can't see it.

Alhamdulillah, alhamdulillah, alhamdulillah for the hijaab! :)

Day 2: Snow-in :)

Alhamdulillah, there was a snow-in today.

I was extremely exhausted yesterday and I was really wondering how I was going to wake up for school the next day, lol. Glad Mama told at Fajr time that there's no school. :D

InshaAllah, I'll be ready to get back to work tomorrow. :)

ASA. Wr. Wb.

(P.S.- Can I ask everyone who is reading my post to please make dua for Egypt? There are many people dying during this uprising and things have been going bad for them (you'd know if you watch the news..). Keep them in your du'as please. JazakumAllah Khair.)

Day1: Bussing


Alhamdulillah, no car has ever hit me after the countless times I have risked my life when I cross the street.

SubhanAllah, there's so many times that I feel like I'll get hit by a bus or by a car. Every time I need to cross the street (where there's no traffic light btw), I feel like I'm putting my life on the line because I have such bad timing to cross. I'm horrible, I know. -_-'

Alhamdulillah, I have yet to be hit by a vehicle! :P

In Jannah...

Their way of request therein will be Subhanaka Allahumma (Glory to You, O Allah!) and Salam (peace, safe from each and every evil) will be their greetings therein (Paradise)! and the close of their request will be: Al-Hamdu Lillahi Rabbil-'Alamin [All the praises and thanks are to Allah, the Lord of 'Alamin (mankind, jinns and all that exists)].

Surah Yunus: 10

SubhanAllah SubhanAllah SubhanAllah!

A'oudubillah, I'm sorry for the title. I had to do something to get your attention.

I was chatting with my friend today and at some point, a talk like this came up:

Non-Muslim friend: "Hey Seeker, this guy is hot like this guy, don't you think?"
Me (inside my head): urghhhhhhh! DX astaghfirullah !!
Her: Hello?
Me: Sorry, what were you saying?
Her: I said he's hot like (so and so), right?
Me: *sigh*.... I don't want to answer
Her: What are you talking about??
Me: It's not right, you shouldn't look at guys like that.
Her: What do you mean?
Me: it's just.. .wrong. Look, I don't think of guys like that, ever in general actually.
Her: What the hell are you saying, girl!!?
Me: Omg.... NO! just- not- *sigh* forget it! )X
Her: loll, dude, the heck are you on? :PP

Being 15, lots of girls my age openly say : "Danng, that boy is fiine!" What's worse, sisters are now saying " Woahh, that brother is really hott mashaAllah." ><

You have no idea (okay, you probably do) how uncomfortable and awkward it is for me to hear them say that. What's worse, is when they want your opinion on it.>< I feel like banging my head against a wall whenever I hear those kind of words are uttered about a boy. I always cringe whenever I hear something like that because the one who's saying that XYZ is 'hot' is basically unashamedly saying : " I'm not lowering my gaze!" and that is totally wrong.

You see, Allah SWT tells both the men and the women to lower their gaze (24:30-31). How would you feel if someone what checking out your brother or sister? Would it not bother you?

My point is, none of us should say things like "You're hot" to the opposite sex (well, I wouldn't even say it to a girl, but that's another story lol) when we know that it's wrong (unless it's a non-muslim, then in that case we should explain to them why it's wrong). Also, it does not make it okay to say it if we add words like 'mashaAllah' or 'subhanAllah' to the sentence either. I tell myself first before I tell others, this is just a reminder (or possibly just me ranting) that we should never ever tell a guy or talk amongst our yourselves on how handsome a brother or how beautiful a sister may be.

Okay, I'm done.

New Project: Alhamdulillah Month

This is a new project I've been planning on working on for some time, it's called 'Alhamdulillah month'.

I pretty much toke it from some other project on the net called 'giving thanks month' (I think that's what it's called..) and it's about giving thanks, or in this case: saying alhamdulillah, to something you've seen or realized in your day throughout the month. I know that we should always say alhamdulillah, but I'm doing this because sometimes we forget to say it and sometimes we don't say it to things that are 'worthy' enough when everything Allah swt has given to us should be worthy of saying alhamdulillah. 

So, this project will be starting February the 1st (after my exams inshaAllah ^^;). Feel free to participate in the project, in fact I encourage you to! :)

EDIT: You don't have to be a blogger to participate. You can have a :

  • Youtube Channel (making an upload of your post)
  • Or simply putting a comment below each of my 'alhamdulillah month' post. I'd be happy to read your alhamdulillah post inshaAllah.

Until then,

Wasalaamu Alaykum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh.

TAGGED: My Hijab Story

I  got tagged by sister Zeinab, and now I'm tagging you. :)

1. How old were you when you started wearing the hijab?
When I was around 7-8 years old.

2. What or who influenced you to become a hijabi?

My mom and sister influenced me. :) I've seen them proudly wear the hijaab and I always wanted to do that too. So I wore it. :)

3. How has hijab changed your life? 

SubhanAllah,it changed my life in a way that it always reminds me of what I believe in and to stick to it. It reminded me to keep myself  in check and to behave well. Recently, I've started to wear 'abayah and alhamdulillah, that made every man think twice when aporching me. I feel more respected and left alone now, alhamdulillah.

4. What does hijab mean to you?

To me, Hijaab is not something you buy at the store, it's an attitude you have. It's to be obedient to Allah and to act as a true female slave of Allah should act like. It's to maintain modesty and shame. Hijaab is a badge of faith and a sheild to protect and preserve yourself.

5. How do you deal with the rude comments/stares you get due to being a hijabi?

What I do to deal with it is I show them the true meaning of hijaab. I make da'wah to them and show them that I'm not an alien, lol. 
6. What is your favorite thing about wearing the hijab?

WAllahi, I think the absolute best thing about wearing hijaab is that you feel completely free! I swear, the first time I wore the khimar (headscarf), I felt good and happy. When first time I wore the abayah, I felt extremely comfortable and at ease.  That's probably the best thing about wearing hijaab for me, it felt so much better then my jeans and shirts I used to wear.

7. What is your hijab must have tool?
safety pins, straight pins, hijaab scarf, abayah. :)

8. What advice could you give a newbie hijabi?

Newbi hijaabis, I congratulate you on wearing the hijaab. Indeed hijaab is an act of worship and inshaAllah, you will be greatly rewarded for wearing it and acting upon it. My advise to you is to always remind yourself for why you're wearing it. We wear hijaab because we follow Allah swt's orders since we are submissive to Him. Also, I advise you to not let others peer pressure  you to taking it off, you are doing the right thing in wearing it. You're a precious my sister. Do you know what Muhammad Ali said to this daughter? He said:

Hana, everything that God made valuable in the world is covered and hard to get to. Where do you find diamonds? Deep down in the ground, covered and protected. Where do you find pearls? Deep down at the bottom of the ocean, covered up and protected in a beautiful shell. Where do you find gold? Way down in the mine, covered over with layers and layers of rock. You've got to work hard to get to them. Your body is sacred. You re far more precious than diamonds and pearls, and you should be covered too.

So don't be pressured my your peers into taking of your hijaab, hijaab is a gift, alhamdulillah and we must appreciate it. Find the love of Allah in your heart. Once you find that you will love to worship Him subhana wa ta'ala, and then you will love to do the things Allah love and hate to do the things Allah hates. So by wearing the hijaab, you are doing what Allah loves and inshaAllah, you will receive great reward for that inshaAllah. :) 

9. What is one hijab trend you never understood?
Hijab+t-shirt+short shorts... ><
10. What do you think about the Hijabi community on YouTube?

Hmm, well I don't know much about their community. I know some sisters make hijaab tutorials online and mashaAllah, they are helping lots of sisters out there. :) I'm sure the community is great, inshaAllah. :) 

11. What question do you get asked due to wearing the hijab?

Is hijaab your choice?

My answer: No, hijaab is not my choice. Hijaab is a Command from Allah swt and as Muslims we obey Allah. But being a Muslim (being submissive to Allah) is your choice. Hijaab is not oppression, nor is it a burden. If you chose to obey Allah swt (like a Muslim should), then you will do it! But if you don't, then that's really between you and your Lord. Hope that's clear. :)

Now your turn !!
