Notes on Marriage #2

Assalamu'alaikum wr. wb.

Di cerita pendidikan mengenai pernikahan kali ini, aku ingin berbagi rangkuman untuk video The Blessed Home Series yang di-upload oleh channel FreeQuranEducation di YouTube. Series ini cukup praktis untuk didengarkan karena satu video-nya sangat pendek, rata-rata di bawah lima menit dan dilengkapi dengan animasi yang mendukung. Berikut beberapa resume untuk video yang sudah kutonton.

Membangun kepercayaan dengan pasangan
Ketika Rasulullah menikah dengan Siti Khadijah, beliau percaya akan kredibitasnya dan percaya bahwa Khadijah akan menjadi istri yang baik dan ibu yang baik untuk anak-anaknya. Kepercayaan ini juga terlihat ketika Rasulullah pertama kali menerima wahyu dari Allah. Setelah menerima wahyu, beliau langsung menemui Khadijah dan memintanya untuk menyelimuti beliau. Beliau adalah orang yang paling dipercayai Rasulullah untuk diceritakain mengenai pengalamannya saat menerima wahyu. Khadijah juga begitu mempercayai Rasulullah sehingga saat Rasululla…

Notes on Marriage #1

Assalamu'alaikum wr. wb.
Bismillahirrahmanirrahiim. InsyaAllah karena aku akan menikah dalam beberapa hari lagi, sekarang aku sedang berusaha semakin banyak belajar tentang pernikahan. Belakangan ini aku semakin sadar bahwa menikah bukanlah perkara mudah, dan untuk mengarunginya kita perlu untuk senantiasa menimba ilmu agar pernikahannya insyaAllah diridhai Allah (aamiin). Karena itu, mumpung aku punya waktu, aku merangkum beberapa kuliah pernikahan yang aku dengarkan dari YouTube. Yang satu ini dari Ust. Abdul Somad. Semoga bisa menjadi pengingat.
1. Anggaplah pasangan adalah "ayat" atau tanda kebesaran Allah Ketika seseorang sudah menikah, anggaplah bahwa pasangan kita adalah tanda kebesaran dari Allah. Allah berfirman dalam Al-Qur'an di Surat Ar-Rum ayat 21, bahwa pasanganmu adalah tanda kebesaran dari Allah. Jika kita senantiasa mengingat itu, maka insyaAllah kita bisa senantiasa menghormati pasangan kita dan memperlakukannya dengan sebaik mungkin.

Things That I am Grateful for in 2017

Assalamu'alaikum wr. wb.
Today marks the first day of 2018, thus 2017 had officially ended. 
I think it feels great to have a feeling of starting anew again, since 2017 was not that great for me. I personally think that I didn't accomplish that many things last year, and it really made me feel bitter; empty and unsatisfied. However, as life goes on, I need to move forward and turn the bitterness of 2017 into lessons, while still being grateful of the little things in 2017 that made me feel happy. So, here comes the list of what I am grateful for, and in the next post I will share the things that I wish I did differently in 2017.
I am grateful that I was engaged. Back in early April 2017, my boyfriend told me that he would like to talk to my dad and ask him if he can marry me. This did not come off as shocking to me because I knew that one day that time would come, but I did become a little bit emotional when I actually saw him talking earnestly to my parents about wanting to m…

Words

You're not going to always get what you want in life.
Even if you are, some things might take time.
And it's okay. Don't give up just yet.
Maybe, you're almost there.

---

You might sometimes feel like you're stuck, and bored.
Things might not be as interesting nor exciting anymore.
But relax, try to find sparks in the tiniest, simplest thing.
Find a reason, or meaning, on what you're doing.

---


If there is anything that you think you have always enjoy doing,
keep doing it. Be sincere. Keep praying.
God might be opening doors for you now.
Keep doing it. Keep going.

---

Do not be afraid. You are much more powerful than you think you are.
And if you're not, you can always count on the greatest force of all.
Keep praying. Keep your integrity and hardwork.
It would pay off. Don't fret.

Soundtracks of my life :)

Assalamualaikum wr. wb.
If this were a Facebook status, I'd write "I'm feeling nostalgic". 
I am currently listening to old songs on my laptop; the songs I used to download as mp3s long before Spotify existed. Songs which I used to listen throughout the different stages of my life, each of those subconsciously linked to certain memories. On this post, I'll list them all in an orderly manner, just for fun. (Feels like it's been such a long time since I did something "just for fun", haha).
Here we go!
Junior High School
Start of Something New - High School Musical We Are One - Lion King Koko Dake No Hanshi - Prince of Tennis
I used to be obsessed with Lion King (don't think the obsession ceased up until now) and listened to its songs almost everyday after school. Since I did not have fast internet connection and couldn't download any mp3s at that time, I listened to the songs on my tape by playing the movie's VCD. I knew exactly at which minu…

Sometimes, technology sucks.

Please.

Take me back to the time when people are experiencing life the "old" way;
When people are peeking into the world through their eyes,  not their screens;
When people read stories from books, not social media feeds.

When I am writing on my diary, not my blog.

I miss all those.
So much, that it hurts.

What Am I For?

Assalamualaikum wr. wb.
There's been so much things going on right now.
Sometimes, I feel super-stressed because of working; not because it is hard, but at some points in my life, when I wake up in the morning or when I try to sleep late at night, my brain got me thinking, "What am I doing with my life?". Sometimes I feel like I don't know what's the purpose for doing all these things. I know, I know, I can make money to feed myself, my family, or even finance my future family. But is it enough? Is it really enough to spend all those years of working "only" for that?
Well, I don't know. I might be naive. But I believe that we are all capable of doing much more than that. Don't get me wrong, I really appreciate all people who work to make their families happy, but somehow having it as the sole purpose of doing things does not work for me. Or maybe haven't worked for me just yet. I currently still think that I need to do something which can b…
