Dengan menyebut nama Allah Yang Maha Pemurah lagi Maha Penyayang

Segala puji 2 bagi Allah, Rabb semesta alam

Maha Pemurah lagi Maha Penyayang.

Yang menguasai hari pembalasan

Hanya kepada Engkaulah kami menyembah dan hanya kepada Engkaulah kami mohon pertolongan

Tunjukilah kami jalan yang lurus,

jalan orang-orang yang telah Engkau anugerahkan ni'mat kepada mereka; bukan mereka yang dimurkai dan bukan mereka yang sesat .

About 8 pm tadi, I managed to call Raja Alfiraindra of Institut Seni Indonesia to ask about him and of course, my Abang Aris. Alhamdulillah, they are unhurt in the massive 6.2 richter scale earthquake that shook Yogyakarta (they were cooking Indomie when I managed to get through) .

Last week, I made a decision to fly off to Yogya before Aris comes back but after thinking for a few days, checking the air fare, contemplating and my instinct pulling me away from flying to Yogya THIS PARTICULAR weekend. Subhanallah.

I just sat speechless looking at ALLAH's will on Yogya on the internet. Entahlah. speechles terus. Lets la doa supaya mereka di Yogya dikurniakan kesabaran menempuhi ketentuan ALLAH ini. It is time for us too, to reflect back on ourselves and who we are and our purpose on earth.

I do not know whether I am depressed or not. By logic, I should not, because I am MILES away. But seeing images over the net and on telly, I still cant tell why am I feeling like this. Remembering my readings from the Quran Translation ( I could not recall which sura) Everything happen for a reason, and the reason is not for us to know. It is all ALLAH's will. Like in the Surah Yassin, Kun Fa Ya Kun, which means What Ever Happens, Happens. This is to prove that ALLAH is in control of everything. He does what He wishes, and He, Knoweth best.
I just could not stop saying the tasbih everytime I see a dead body, or an injured child, or an injured person on telly. I also could not stop shedding a tear. Ya ALLAH, please calm and make my fellow brothers and sisters in Yogya strong to face the coming days.
To my readers, Jazzakalahu Khair for reading my thots.
