Tajweed Made Easy Colorful Ramadan


Alhamdulillah i had the chance to join the colorful ramadan program by TME (Tajweed Made Easy). The program starts from 18th June to 7th July 2015. I joined the onsite halaqah and ours started a bit late because the Ustadha wasn't around during the first weekend. 

Initially when i saw the advertisement, i thought, i won't be able to make it because Durian Tunggal is far from my place. I had to travel about 35-40 minutes to get there. However, Allah changed my heart at the last minute and i managed to slot in, Alhamdulillah. 

On the first morning, before i left for the class, Sawda was telling me, why should i go because i am good already. Masya Allah, sometimes i think my kids have high expectation on me. Too high that i need to always keep up to par. That motivated me more since i know i would benefit from the halaqah. 

The Ustadha is so young Masya Allah, while the other sisters are like my mom and my mother-in-law. It wasn't a suprise that i need a lot of improvement to do. She pinpointed my makhraj issues and i am so glad that she did.

I missed the 2nd day and today the class was cancelled because the ustadha wasn't well. I really love the class. Really, really, really love it.

I plan to join the TME Intensive class so that i would be able to learn directly from Sheikha Wafaa herself. However, they haven't advertise about the intensive class yet. Still got time to start saving up.



Anyway, the online Tajweed Made Easy Course has already open it's registration. Alhamdulillah!!!

About Our Well-Qualified Head Teacher
Sheikhah Wafaa Mohd Hussain Yee is the 30th generation of Sanad Holders. Sanad means an uninterrupted chain of authorities on which a tradition is based. It is the chain that links directly back to our beloved Prophet Muhammad (sallallahu alaihi wasallam, may peace and blessings be upon him). Sheikhah Wafaa obtained her Sanad from Sheikh Abu Abdur-Rahman Muhammad ibn Saleem ibn Ahmad ibn Saleem.

Sheikhah Wafaa is the daughter of Sheikh Hussain Yee. She was born in Malaysia in 1980. After graduating from St. Mary Kuala Lumpur in 1997, she travelled to Jordan, Saudi Arabia and Egypt to further her Islamic Studies over a period of 10 years, out of which she specialized in the Noble Qur’aan for 7 years.

As a student of Sheikhah Manal Ahmad Ridwan in Raabigh, she was awarded a Sanad Certificate for some parts of the Qur’aan by the Sheikhah. She then moved to Jeddah and recited with Sheikh Abu Abdur-Rahmaan Muhammad ibn Saleem ibn Ahmad ibn Saleem, who is a Sanad Holder of 14 Qiraat. At the age of 28, she received the Sanad Certificate for the whole Qur’aan by the respectable Sheikh.

She taught basic Qur’an to reverts and born Muslims in Raabigh Da’wa Center in 2003-2007 and taught tilaawah for 12 years in various places.

In 2009, she wrote a book called Tajweed Made Easy where she incorporated the methods that she developed for all her Tajweed classes. The book was finally published in 2011.

In 2012, she founded Tajweed Made Easy Academy Global (TMEAG).

Currently, she is teaching live (on-site) classes, as well as online. She had also conducted intensive tajweed courses in Malaysia, Singapore and Macedonia.

inilah misi Ramadan Sawda Tahun Ini

Tahun ini Sawda bersungguh-sungguh menunggu kehadiran Ramadan. Alhamdulillah, beberapa bulan sebelum Ramadan pun dia dah mula bertanyakan tentang Ramadan. Honestly speaking, Sawdalah pemangkin aku menggantikan puasa tahun lepas. Selalunya memang demotivated kerana aku masih menyusukan Zaynab lagi. Tapi dek kerana Cik Kak kita ni suka ajak berpuasa, maka aku gigih jugalah menggantikannya. Alhamdulillah. :)









Sehari sebelum Ramadan, kami berusrah seperti biasa. Lin mencadangkan kami mengambil gambar beramai-ramai untuk meraikan kehadiran Ramadan. Selepas penggambaran, aku minta kertas props dan menggantung di rumah. Tidak pernah sekalipun aku sambut Ramadan melalui hiasan. Tapi bila ada anak ni, macam-macamlah aktivitinya.



Selepas menghias rumah, Zaynab dan Sawda sungguh-sungguh memuji hiasan tersebut. Katanya, cantik betul rumah kita. Masya Allah! Sesungguhnya rumah ini sudah 12 tahun tidak dicat. Malahan, langsir pun ihsan orang sahaja. Namun anak-anak ini memang penyejuk jiwa ibubapa. Tabarakallah!

Sahur pertama untuk Sawda amat mudah. Apakan daya, Sawda tidak dapat meneruskan puasa hari pertama kerana memang tidak larat. Kasihan pula. Aku memang tidak menyuruhnya puasa. Walaupun jika mahu dibandingkan, pada umur 7 tahun, abang-abang memang sudah mula puasa penuh. Sawda orangnya memang lain dari adik-beradik lain. Apa perlu dibanding?

Misi aku untuk Sawda ialah dia perlu solat sekurangnya 3 waktu. Sebenarnya, sebelum ini, dia cuma diwajibkan solat 1 waktu sahaja setiap hari. Dan dia pilih Maghrib. Memangpun, maghrib ialah waktu solat yang orang memang ramai solat. :P Jadi, untuk upgrade kepada 3 waktu solat setiap hari tugas besar juga untuk Sawda.

Hari kedua Sawda demam. Maka tidaklah berjaya puasa juga. Tapi solat 3 waktu masih dibuat. Hari ke3, 4, 5 dan 6, Alhamdulillah sudah dapat rentaknya. Kami musafir ke Bangi pada hari Selasa lepas dan mereka berjaya menghabiskan puasa dengan jayanya.

Namun semalam dan hari ini, Sawda kembali tidak semangat. Ada kena mengena dengan aku juga. Ehem ehem. Aku katakan sahaja, aku tidak sedih jika dia tak dapat puasa. Tapi jangan guna alasan puasa untuk tidak solat 3 waktu. Dia menangis juga mahu puasa, dan menangis juga tidak larat solat. Tak pastilah caraku ini betul atau tidak. Tapi sepanjang pemerhatianku, puasa itu mudah. Semua orang boleh buat, namun solat itu sukar. Pelik.

Salah satu penekanan aku kepada anak-anak ialah mereka perlu buat sesuatu kerana Allah swt. Bukan kerana hadiah, bukan kerana aku suruh atau faktor-faktor lain. Ikhlas memang kita tidak boleh ukur. Cuma aku mahu mereka buat sesuatu kerana mereka mahu Allah gembira dengan mereka. (Allah redha).

Kami memang tidak ada janjikan hadiah atau wang tunai dan sebagainya. Kebiasaannya akan dapat juga. Beli guna wang raya mereka sendiri nanti. :))

Semoga Sawda berasa gembira melakukan sesuatu untuk Tuhannya.


Lemon Essential Oil for my home

We all know lemon has many benefits for health and also as the household cleaners. I choose to use Young Living Lemon Essential Oil. Do you know that in order to produce 15ml lemon oil, it needs 75 lemons. Heh, now you know.


I put a few drops in my last laundry last rinse. it does smells good, masya Allah. Even sawda notices it.

I will make monthly order for myself, and if you feel like trying anything, please let me know so i can put in your order too.

For this month, a few friends bought Lemon,  Joy, Di-gize, Lavender, Clary Sage, Cypress and not forgetting, the must have blend, Deep Relief. 

Inshaa Allah, the orders should be ready by next week. So sisters, start saving and get your next month, ok!

Precautions: Avoid contact with direct sunlight for 12+ hours after use. Always test for skin sensitivity prior to widespread use and use on the feet when possible. Excessive use of any oil can lead to skin sensitization. Keep out of eyes, ears, or nose. Not all oils are created equal, so test brands carefully, and never use an oil in a way not recommended by its maker.

Practical Parenting Advice

A friend share mashaaAllah ,Practical Parenting Advice

Spent a lovely afternoon getting parenting advice from Shaykh Faraz Rabbani (a father of 3 children himself, masha'Allah) at ILM Tree . Some of the nuggets I managed to gather from him:

You're not responsible for your children's actions, only for what you teach them (or don't teach them).

Focus on teaching your children adab and akhlaq (manners and etiquette); parents don't emphasize these enough any more. Have adab with yourself before you set out to teach adab -- that means "pausing". Be willing to pause before reacting.

Adab is the capacity to have the appropriate action, attitude, and response in any given situation.

Oftentimes we do more damage by how we react to our children's mishaps. When we lose our temper with our kids, we're still "teaching" them; we're just not teaching them the appropriate reaction to life's adversities and challenges. Our kids are always learning from us.

Criticizing your children is a bid'ah (a blameworthy innovation); it's not from the Sunnah (way of the Prophet). Don't criticize; don't nag. Nagging your children about everything is a good way to guarantee that they don't listen to you about anything. Nagging never works.

Sometimes the correct response is to not say anything.

If you want to know how to raise teenagers, look at the life of Anas (radiAllahu anhu); he lived in the house of the Prophet (salallaahu alaihi wasallam) from the age of 10 to 20. He broke things and made mistakes, but the Prophet (saw) never focused on whatever Allah had already destined; he never shamed Anas (rA) for his mistakes. He only focused on gentle teaching and gentle reminders. (i.e. "Did you take care of that task I asked you to do?" rather than "Why haven't you done what I asked you to do yet?! How many times do I have to remind you?!")

Children who have not yet attained the age of puberty are not held accountable by Allah (swt) even if they commit murder (God forbid), so who are we to freak out on our kids for "little things" like spilled milk?

When the Prophet (saw) saw another young sahabah (companion) eating greedily from all over a plate, he gently told him, "Say Allah's Name before eating; eat with your right hand; and eat from what is in front of you." He didn't criticize him for his (lack of) manners; he only told him the correct way to eat and then moved on.

We are not police officers or judges when it comes to our children; rather, we should be like shepherds -- we should try to gently guide them in the direction of where we want them to eventually end up.

Complaining about your children to friends is blameworthy; however, consulting with ppl who have wisdom and experience is praiseworthy. Don't talk to just anyone about you r concerns regarding your children.

When asked about getting kids to pray or to wear the hijab, he reminded us that Islam is not about do's and  don'ts and a bunch of rules; it's about the heart. We need to teach kids to have hearts that are directed towards pleasing their Lord. They should desire on their own to live lives of taqwa (God-consciousness). We must model taqwa for them by how we live our own lives. Some children may need gentle nudges and reminders to do the right thing.

All virtues are virtuous; anything virtuous should be taught to and emphasized for BOTH genders (like modesty and lowering the gaze and gentleness). Boys should not be shamed for being shy. Shyness is praiseworthy.

Prayer should be a pleasant experience for the kids. He talked about his own children taking turns saying their personal duas aloud after prayer time; sometimes the kids would fall into hugging and wrestling on the prayer mat afterwards.

Teach kids about the Prophet Muhammad's (saw) life.

Remind yourself about what your parents did RIGHT.

Don't become self-satisfied and overly confident in your parenting.

Seek Allah's Pleasure through your own parenting, and facilitate for your children to seek Allah's Pleasure as well.

Aim high in both spiritual and worldly matters. Do dhikr (remembrance of Allah) and call on Allah for Help. Don't just ask that He make your kids into good Muslims; ask Him to make your kids from amongst the best and most virtuous of all Muslims ever. Trust in Him to answer your duas. Nothing is impossible for Allah.

What Ramadan Really Is?

Facebook post by Sadeem El-Nahhas

One of the biggest lies ever perpetrated and believed by Muslims is the one about the essence or purpose of fasting Ramadan. The popular belief nowadays is that fasting is about commiserating and empathizing with the poor. It is how many Muslims explain the fast to children and to curious non-muslims. This speaks to a dangerous forgetfulness of the fundamentals of Islam and a propagation of a watered-down version of the religion. The fast is NOT about the rich empathizing with the poor. Anyone who has seen how the rich break their fast and how the poor break theirs would know better than to say that. 

For the first fast-breaking meal in Ramadan, rich and middle class people make a huge meal, equivalent probably to a decent Thanksgiving dinner. The leftovers would feed the family for a week. The poor have to fast the same long hours, work hard to earn their bread during the fast, and break their fast on a small meal, which is what they could afford. The poor are still poor when Maghreb calls. 

Instead, what Ramadan really is is God's bootcamp for Muslims. God says to us "I let you play all year, but now it's time to really remember who you are and what you're for. So I'm going to minimize your distractions so that you may remember Me." 

The fast is about breaking the tyranny of your body over your life, and more importantly, your soul. It reminds you that you are a soul in a body, with more transcendental aspirations than your base desires. We all get hungry and thirsty when we fast, but at the end of the day we have the satisfaction of knowing that when we wanted nothing more than to reach out and drink that cup of glittering cold water, we thought to ourselves "No, God is greater."
 It was a choice. It makes us stronger.

That's why when God talks about the fast in the Qur'an He says "O you who have believed, Fasting is ordained for you as it was ordained for those before you, so that you might remain conscious of God"

Ramadan is a reminder that God is there; omniscient, omnipotent, and closer than we think. So as we gear up for the next Ramadan, let us remember what it really is about, and try to form the proper intention for this fast. May God accept us all.

Inspiration from the life of Bee


Image from Read Little Muslim Website.

Inspiration from the life of a bee;

Bee only eats pure nectar, from fresh flowers that no other bees have sat on. It keeps looking until it finds the best, pure, clean flowers.

The way it sits on the flower is perfect; it hovers a bit so the flower is not harmed by its weight.

It only takes little, what it takes does not harm the flower but it gives the flower more than it takes

 It gives life (pollination).

A bee does not interfere with another bee's flower, or the pollination process will be messed up and the plant will die. 

Allah mentions that the bee moves with humility. The work that a bee does; honey, not only benefit itself but also is a healing for mankind. 

Subhanallah. If only we can be a bit like the Bee.
