Listen to me when I'm quiet..


Sometimes, when I ask someone to listen to me, it doesnt mean that I want them to hear me speak. I dont know if this is making sense or not, but I expect them to listen to me even when I am quiet. Sometimes, my method of conveying messages is not through my yapping (though that seems to be the case on why people dont really wanna listen to me talk in the house). But through understanding... *pause...raise eyebrow*... Hmmmmm....






No seriously, sometimes, when I keep quiet I tend to "talk" more ...IN MY HEAD... And it enlightens me when they can figure out what I'm thinking and how I want certain things to be. But that doesnt happen all the time.. No, please, its not that I'm expecting everyone to be a mind reader but for certain things, I'd really wish so that people can understand what I want without me saying it.







even so.... I prefer everyone else to just "word" their thoughts... Coz I'm really bad at intrepretting body language.... This "Understanding-Silence" method can only be applied to me.










thats pretty selfish :)

The People of the Cave PART 2

.

Continuation from previous post...



So as years gone by, they slept their way till 309 years later. During their nap, they've past the time when Prophet Isa A.S (Jesus) was sent down to spread the teaching of Allah.


So, after that one long nap, they woke up and started feeling hungry. Neither of them was aware that they've slept for so many years. They start questioning one another, "how long have we slept"? Some answered maybe a day, and some answered maybe half a day. And finally they agreed to just live it to God saying "only God knows how long we've slept" -but still have no clue that they are already "ancients" by now... And so, like normal people(tho they are not so normal), they've gotten hungry. So, they appointed one of them to go to the town to get food. But he must be careful that no one follows him back or they will all be killed by King Decius. (I forgot who went, I think its Thamlika...please recheck, tried to but couldnt find it..thank you)**


So carefully, he went to town. However, he recognized not anyone nor the place. Its like everything's new to him. (Okay starting this point I'm cutting the story short cz some things are getting kinda blurry, and I prefer to keep it short so they'd be less faults- if there's any...... so, bismillah >.<) . So he went to buy some food but the money he used was unrecognizable. He insisted to use his money but everyone refused to take it. And he was like, "this is the coin used in any King Decius ruling, is he not the King?" And the sales guy didnt know what he was talking about and because of the commotion made, Thamlika** was brought to the King.


Thamlika** then told his whole story to the King about his background and about King Decius and how he made everyone worship him and such. Oh btw, during this time (the current time, 309 years later), the people has began (begun?) worshiping the teachings of Allah widely, this includes the King himself. So, he became inquisitive, to see if Thamlika** was saying the truth or not, the King asked Thamlika to show him his house. So, Thamlika**, with the help of Allah, find his way and directed them to his old house. With full excitement, after seeing the house Thamlika said "Thats my house!".


However, there, a very old man lived in the house. One of the guards who followed Thamlika** asked the man if he knew Thamlika**. He said he doesnt. He said the house has been his from his grandfathers and great great grandfathers. The guards called Thamlika** a liar but he said he can prove that in the house there's a safe which he kept and only he knows where it is. So they all went inside the house and Thamlika** showed them where he hid his safe. And in there, they found the money with King Decius's name on it (or sumthng that indicates King Decius's ruling) . Suddenly the old man cried into tears and said: "Yes, this house was owned by Thamlika**. Thamlika** is my great great grandfather who has escaped from this town with some other men from King Decius ruling to obey Allah's command and preserve their Imaan. I have heard this story and it has been sent down from generations to generations. I just cant believe that I am able to see him now". SubhanAllah


Happy and surprised, the King then asked about his other friends and asked if he could meet them all. Thamlika** told him they are all hiding in the cave. So the King and some followers made their way to the cave. Thamlika** however went into the cave first to tell the story that had happened upon him at the town to his "gang" (lol). They were all so amazed and grateful and happy and everything when they heard it!! And their Imaan got even stronger. :) After telling the whole story, it was like their "mission" on earth has ended. All of them peacefully died instantly at that moment.

The King and others that followed waited long outside the cave, wondering what had happened. Thamlika** never appeared again. So, they went into the cave and saw them all dead (the dog too). Sad and happy tears fell down their cheeks and they prayed to God AlMighty for "this chance" and then build a tomb at the cave as a reminder to the people about Allah's Powers via the 7 sleepers.


The End.


Frankly, if I was there, of course I'd be grateful and feel fortunate and all to see all these things happening before me but I'll be more terrified.. I'll be like.."oh no...is the world about to end.........? The good good people are dead.......Now the remaining ones are people like meeeeeee........... :S .. "

Anyway, in the Quran there's a Surah called Surah AlKahf which tells us about the story. If not mistaken there are some ayats about them in other surahs too but am not very sure about that..sometimes, I browse the Quran like the magazine..i see words but i dun connect them to anything..lol..i noe.. thats pretty bad of me..oh well..i said "sometimes"...cz other times i dun read it at all...looool!! just kidding!! hahaha.. but yeah.. i think i should study it more often..

I'm sleepy... just finished having lunch...i think am gonna take a nap for a bit...

oh btw, am sorry if the story is a bit inaccurate and if my language is worse. Let me noe if there's anything wrong with the story ya! tq . I know there's also a christian and roman version of it too. This is just from a book. And its an islamic book so, I'd say this is the Islamic version of the story....?


Remember Ameera loves you too.. :-* *kisskiss* (LOL)

The People of the Cave PART 1

.

I'd like to share with you a story on one of the books I read during my stay in Singapore. Its about the Seven Sleepers.


SubhanAllah.. Just about a few days before I left for Singapore, a friend and I were discussing about the story of the seven sleepers (also known as the people of the cave or "Ashabul Kahf"). We were arguing about the time when the event happened. But neither of us found a conclusion and we carried on talking bout other topics (in other words...neither of us checked the net or asked sumone else bout it after that).

Good for me, I found the book regarding the subject at my uncle's place....nyaa.. :3


What I'm about to write might not be 100% as what its written in the book. I might miss a few infos. Here goes!


The story of the AK (Ashabul Kahf) began at the time of King Decius dictation. There were many opinions on where the location took place, some say in Syria some say in Jordan. Anyway, King Decius had 6 cousin, one whose name is Thamlika.


One night while Thamlika's brothers were falling asleep, Thamlika was thinking to himself, if King Decius was really God as he claimed himself to be. King Decius was not the one who created the stars and the moon, he's just a mere human being with power on the land they're living in, so he thought there might be a more superior being than King Decius that created the whole universe.


Thamlika then asked his brothers; " Who is your God?" They answered : "King Decius is". Thamlika asked them again; "Was it King Decius who created the moon and the stars at night? or the food you eat? (etc etc) They answered "No". Thamlika then asked them all together to pray to the God who created those things.


So from that day onwards, all the 6 guys prayed to the God AlMighty at night as to keep it down from King Decius but during the day they served the King. Satan got to know about this, so he then told King Decius about the worship of another God by the 6 brothers. The King then called them to forth the next day. He asked "Who do you worship?" Thamlika and the others answered " We worship the one who fill us from our hunger and give us shelter at night (etc etc) . King Decius thought nothing was wrong with that since he(King Decius) was the one who feed them food and give them shelter. So, he let them go.


Thamlika and his 5 brothers continue to worship God AlMighty during night time and satan was not pleased. He then told King Decius again about the 6 brothers worshiping God AlMighty and told him that they worship Him during the night. So King Decius called them again. King Decius asked if he (King Decius) was God to them. Thamlika then asked: "Were you the one who created the stars at night the universe, the hills, the food water etc etc?"
And King Decius was like "No". Thamlika then replied;" Well, we have been worshiping the God who created those things for us". Ashamed and angry, King Decius sentenced them to the prison. (. . . to be hanged maybe? I forgot...)


Almohem, they were put in prison first. One day King Decius and his comrades had to go out of the city for a few days, so they kept the gate of the city closed. A night before that, Angel Jibrail (Gabriel) came to Thamlika's dream in a form of a boy. He was playing a "round thing" happily. He said something that had given the idea on how they can escape out of the city.


The next day, knowing that King Decius was out of town, Thamlika then persuaded the prison guard to let them go, saying that they are of good people and they just want to meet their families for the last time and will come back the next day. Furthermore, the gate was full of guards and it had been closed so they couldnt possibly just go out of the city like that. Knowing their family background and how good they are, the guard let him out but told them to come back the next day. So they were freemen for a day.


However, instead of going back to their families, Thamlika made that "round thing" just as he saw in his dreams. [In modern days that round thing is called "a ball".. (lol...seriously)] He then started kicking it. His actions were observed by his brothers and they started playing together. (I am not sure if they all played the same ball or they made themselves their own). [This is the first ball game ever played recorded in history (according to the book)]. So they were playing in the city and all the town people got excited and engross with the newly profound game. They were like hypnotized just watching the game. Little do they know that actually Thamlika and his brothers had a plan to make their escape from the town. They kicked the ball towards the gate and the gate opened. But the people didnt realize the plan as they were giving so much attention to the game. So they thought thats a part of the game. They played until they were far from the town and from the eyes of the people.


Now thats what you call the Great Escape! cz u have fun along the way..ngehe... =3


So they escaped and basically was running away from Decius. Along the way, they met with a shepherd and his dog. The shepherd then told them that he was also the believer of God AlMighty and wanted to join on their venture together with his dog. At first the 6 brothers was not that eager to let the shepherd bring along his dog because the dog might bring their enemies to find them. But miraculously, by God's will, the dog spoke in human language and said that he'll protect them instead.


So went together until they were so tired and needed to rest. They found a cave and agreed to take a nap. A "nap" which took 300 / 309 years.......



to be continued......................................................i gotto take my showerrrrr........pfffffft..... (-_-")




p/s: If I'm not mistaken the title of the book is called " The Surprising Stories about the Sleepers of the Cave", Author.. something Turki-ish.. (LoL am bad at this..)..

I wantz.........

.


All I want is a mini library full of books of my interests and a fully equipt
SPACIOUS kitchen ...


Money, please dont be too shy with me...lets be
friends...shall we........ :)


Sincerely;
Ameera.


So what did I do today? I made bread! Cinnamon buns, plain bread and garlic breadsticks...All thanks to the Great Master of Bread making - my aunt :*

Earlier this year I made my own homemade butter which was awesome.. Yes, I'm not kidding.. :-P . So now all I need to do is to bake cookies to complete my set of "English Tea" cooking skill... Oh yeah.. and I need to learn to make my own jam too.. Hmmmhh,,fine.. still a long way to go... (-_-")

Yesterday, I was taught on how to cook "Udang Masak Senang"... LoL.. Its really that senang (translate: simple). Takes only about 10 minutes to make it.
(If you'd like to know the recipe, plz let me know..)


So anyway, last week I visited my other aunts' place, in Singapore. It was about a year ago since I last went to her house. And I found my second heaven...*dreaming*..........

The book collection I have in my room is no comparison to my uncles' newly renovated room cm library! He has like loaaaaaaaaaaads of cool reading materials! I nearly cried when I first stepped in to that room. If it wasnt because he was there, I'd have rolled on the
floor, smelled all the books and hug them all until I'm fully contentd .. He has book genres
from religions to world issue to culture to historical , bibiograpy, comics...I tell you if I have died in that room that day, I'd be the happiest deadman...

Unfortunately, I didnt have the time to read all them books. I only managed to read 3. :-). But still I'm still overjoyed.


People like me are the ones who're always at lost because we tend to take things for granted. I NEVER liked reading books when I was a librarian back in my school days. All I did was sit at the counter and did "wordsearch"... and gossip... haih.... if only I was good enough to pick a book
and sit in the corner and read silently, I would have become someone more useful than what I am today.. LoL.. Aight getting late.. night.. :*




*i miss my parents...*hugs pillow**

I'm making no sense...

.

Is it just me or whenever I use contact lenses, my eyes go blur?? like literally...

For evening occasions, I prefer to use light colored contacts but instead of making my vision clearer, I go BLIND! Fine, fashion hurts, k i get it... but there must be something that I can do to make me bang fewer walls and hit less innocent lives!! -__-"

I WISH in later future, one good scientist will invent something like an eyedrop that will able some of us; fashion victims, to change the color of our eyeballs in accordance to our preferance; at that time. Therefore, it will reduce the tendency of air and dirt to accumulate in the space between the lense and my eyes. Hence, blurry effect will perish...forever...

:)

Anyway, as you all know, Chris Brown and I are making it official..k...thats a bit stupid and childish... anyway...what i'm trying to say is that, i fell in love with Chris Brown's latest song:

"Should've kissed you"

I must admit that I've been bugging some of you to listen to his other songs : "Next 2 u" and "look at me now"before this... but "should've kissed you" is another song worth listening while you're driving...But girls, FYI, Chris Browns' mine and you girls are not even allowed to utter his name before earning my permission to do so. So, please bear that in mind. Thank you. (I'm watching you..... )

Lets sing a long, shall we? ^_^










Where Am I mad, I don't get it,
It seems like every time you give me signs,
And I miss it!
I did it again,
I admit it,
I left you standing there,
And now I regret it,

Seems like every time,
I get the chance,
I lose my cool, and I blow it,
And I get all tongue tied,
Lost in your eyes,
I'm a fool, and I know it!

[Chorus]

I should've kissed you,
I should've told you,
Told you just how I feel,
And next time I won't stop,
I'll listen to my heart,
Cause what I feel is real!
I should've kissed you,
I should've told you how I feel,
I should've kissed you,
I should've showed you how I feel,

No I deny,
Give you my two cents,
A million reasons why I should have,
And it makes no sense,
So here I am,
By myself again,
Stopping for green lights, and Now I know,
I wanna be more than friends,

How come every time I get the chance
I lose my cool and I blow it,
And I get all tongue tied,
Lost in your eyes,
I'm a fool and I know it!

So I turned the car around,
And you were right where I left you,
And your smile said you were feeling me too,
And the motion's right,
Cause when your lips met mine,
I finally got it right,
I'll be leaving with you tonight,
And I won't have to say,

Girl I should've kissed you,
I should've told you told you just how I feel,
And this time I won't stop,
Until I have your heart,
Because this feeling is real.

:)))
