Jika tidak dikawal, ujian dan tanggungjawab rumah tangga akan menyebabkan suami isteri semakin “bisu”. “Mati kutu” memanjang. Ada kalanya duduk rapat-rapat tetapi sudah tidak bertemu lagi. Masing-masing menonton televisyen, cerita yang sama, dari awal rancangan hinggalah tamat siaran, tidak ada yang dibualkan. Dalam kereta, suami sibuk memandu, isteri pula membisu. Mujur ada anak-anak sebagai “mediator” secara tidak rasmi, terhubung jugalah seketika. Apabila anak tiada, keadaan pun menjadi sepi semula.
Apakah kehilangan kata-kata menunjukkan kehilangan cinta? Mana yang lebih tepat, cinta yang melahirkan kata-kata atau kata-kata yang melahirkan cinta? Kedua-duanya betul dan patut dipraktikkan. Benar, sewaktu mula-mula bercinta dahulu, cintalah yang melahirkan kata-kata tetapi apabila cinta telah lama bermula dan ingin diperbaharui semula, kata-katalah yang perlu diluahkan untuk mengharumkan cinta. Ingatlah bahawa kita bercinta bukan hanya sekali tetapi kita perlu bercinta berkali-kali. Ops! Dengan orang yang sama iaitu pasangan hidup kita. Cinta itu perlu diperbaharui setiap hari dan selama-lamanya. Perbaharuilah cinta dengan kata-kata yang baik. Jangan membsiu dan jangan menjadi tuli. Sentiasa menjadi lidah yang menuturkan kata-kata yang baik dan telinga yang sentiasa terbuka untuk mendengar.
Untuk bercinta lagi, luahkanlah kata-kata yang baik untuk mencairkan prasangka, meleburkan curiga dan memadamkan dendam. Cari-carilah topic yang menarik untuk dibualkan.
Cara yang lain ialah:
1. Berdoa untuk Allah s,w,t ilhamkan kata-kata yang baik dan menarik semasa memulakan perbualan.
2. Menerima dan berkongsi hobi dengan pasangan.
3. Ulas apa yang anda dengar, lihat atau baca dengan pasangan serta kaitkan dengan situasi terkini dalam rumah tangga.
4. Sekali-sekala masak bersama resepi kesukaannya.
5. Jangan prasangka dan curiga dan selalu memaafkan selagi pasangan tidak melanggar syariat.
6. Amalkan peraturan 24 jam. Jangan biarkan “gencatan suara” melebihi 24 jam. Mujahadahlah untuk meminta maaf secara rasmi atau tidak rasmi.
7. Tempoh-tempoh yang dirasakan sukar dalam perhubungan hendaklah diisi dengan amalan habluminallah seperti solat, munjat dan taubat. Jangan selesaikan masalah dengan satu masalah lain.

|Mampukah aku menjadi seperti Siti Khatijah?|
Agung cintanya pada Allah dan Rasulullah
Hartanya diperjuangkan ke jalan fisabilillah
Penawar hati kekasih Allah
Susah dan senang rela bersama...
Dapatkah ku didik jiwa seperti Siti Aishah?
Isteri Rasulullah yang bijak
Pendorong kesusahan dan penderitaan
Tiada sukar untuk dilaksanakan...
Mengalir air mataku
Melihat pengorbanan puteri solehah Siti Fatimah
Akur dalam setiap perintah
Taat dengan abuyanya, yang sentiasa berjuang
Tiada memiliki harta dunia
Layaklah dia sebagai wanita penghulu syurga..
Ketika aku marah
Ingin ku intip serpihan sabar
Dari catatan hidup Siti Sarah...
Setabah Umi Nabi Ismail
Mengendong bayinya yang masih merah
Mencari air penghilang dahaga
Diterik padang pasir merah
Ditinggalkan suami akur tanpa bantah
Pengharapannya hanya pada Allah
Itulah wanita Siti Hajar...
Mampukah aku menjadi wanita solehah?
Mati dalam keunggulan iman
Bersinar indah, harum tersebar
Bagai wanginya pusara Masyitah...
tidak boleh melepasi tabir takdir.
Semua yang berlaku adalah dengan kehendak Allah SWT.

Dengan nama Allah, Yang Maha Pemurah, lagi Maha Mengasihani
Katakanlah (wahai Muhammad):
Wahai orang-orang kafir! (1)
Aku tidak akan menyembah apa yang kamu sembah. (2)
Dan kamu tidak mahu menyembah (Allah) yang aku sembah. (3)
Dan aku tidak akan beribadat secara kamu beribadat. (4)
Dan kamu pula tidak mahu beribadat secara aku beribadat. (5)
Bagi kamu agama kamu dan bagiku agamaku. (6)

sebagai mana Engkau pernah menghantar burung² ababil
untok menghancurkan tentera bergajah musrikin.
maka kami memohon padamu Ya Allah,
turunknlah bantuan mu kali ini kepada orang² Islam di Palestin,
hancurkanlah rejim zionis sedahsyat dahsyatnya
..Amin Ya Robal Alamin

In his life, he went through so many death that he have lost count in numbers......the numbers of death exceeds in the billions ..if not.maybe in the trillions or more.....
What are these "deaths" mean?
These so call deaths are not physical death...but the death of your name as a Muslim and your actions that will be against you in the day of Qiyamaat.
When sin is committed by a person knowingly and that person fully understand everything and has the strength to stop himself and choose not to....he dies a little
He lets his arch enemy win and let him go in the wrong path of life.
Who is this him? HIM IS THE DEVIL
Every time when a person stars acting like a kafir and not like a Muslim and commits sins every second in front the whole world.....the world says "INNA LILLAHI WA INNA ILAIHI RAJEOON"
Even when i commit a sin and i feel myself die just abit...i say this to myself..."INNA LILLAHI WA INNA ILAIHI RAJEOON"
When angels are around you and see you acting like a kafir...they say "INNA LILLAHI WA INNA ILAIHI RAJEOON"
Even a small simple ant and see you acting like a kafir and not a Muslim..the ant says " INNA LILLAHI WA INNA ILAIHI RAJEOON"
Why do we kill ourself little by little .....in the end....those things in life that we know will do harm in the End ...why do we choose them knowing when the ALMIGHTY ask us question of our action....we know we wont have good answers......
I see myself in a casket and my name is almost craved on it.....the name i hold so dear to my heart...the name I love calling myself..."MUSLIM"
The only way to save myself is to Repent and Ask the ALMIGHTY's forgiveness and ask the ALMIGHTY 's protection and help.
We also experience Rebirths in life...these rebirths are when we are given second chance and try to better in life
In my life I have seen myself being reborn as a Muslim and seeing happiness and peacefulness.......

Her name remained greatly unknown, until the battle of Ajnadin, not far from Jerusalem, where Drear lost his spear, fell from his horse, and was taken prisoner. She donned a male knight's attire, took her arms and rode her mare through the Roman ranks, using her sword skillfully against whoever tried to stop her. The Muslim soldiers, and their leader Khalid, watched her with great admiration, presuming that she was a man.
The Arab Historian, Al Waqidi, narrates in his book "The conquering of Al Sham (Greater Syria)"
"In a battle that took place in Bayt Lahyah near Ajnadin, Khalid watched a knight, in black attire, with a large green shawl wrapped around his waist and covering his chest. That knight broke through the Roman ranks as an arrow. Wondering about the identity of the unknown Knight Khalid and the others followed him and joined battle,
Rafe' Bin Umayrah Al-Ta'if was one of the fighters. He described how that knight scattered the enemy ranks, disappearing in their midst, to reappear after a while with blood dripping from his spear. He swerved again and repeated the deed fearlessly, several times. All the Moslem army was worried about him and praying for his safety. Rafe' and others thought that he was Khalid, who won great fame for his bravery and genius military plans. But suddenly Khalid appeared with a number of knights. Rafe' asked the leader:
"Who is that knight? By God, he has no regard for his safety!"
Khalid answered that he didn't know the man, though he greatly admired his courage. They were fascinated as they watched the knight appear with a number of Roman knights chasing him. Then he would turn around and kill the nearest before resuming his attacks.
The Romans eventually lost the battle and fled, leaving many dead and wounded in the battlefield. Khalid looked for the knight till he found him. By then he was covered in blood. He praised his bravery and asked him to remove his veil. But the knight did not answer, and tried to break away. The soldiers wouldn't let him do that. And everyone asked him to reveal his identity.
When the knight found that there was no way to avoid that, he replied in a feminine voice:
"My prince, I did not answer because I am shy. You are a great leader, and I am only a woman whose heart is burning."
"Who are you?" Khalid insisted.
"I am Khawlah Bint Al-Azwar. I was with the women accompanying the army, and when I learnt that the enemy captured my brother, which lead me to do what I had to do."
Khalid ordered his army to chase the fleeing Roman Army, with Khawlah leading the attack, looking in all directions for her brother, but in vain. By noontime, the victory was decisive. Most of the Roman soldiers were killed.
Knowing that the prisoners had to be somewhere, Khalid sent Khawlah with a number of knights to find them. After a hot chase, they managed to catch up with a Roman detachment that was taking the prisoners to their headquarters. Another fight took place, the Roman guards were all killed and the prisoners saved.
In another battle in Ajnadin, Khawlah's spear broke, and her mare was killed, and she found herself a prisoner. But she was astonished to find that the Romans attacked the women camp and captured several of them. Their leader gave the prisoners to his commanders, and order Khawlah to be moved into his tent. She was furious, and decided that to die is more honorable than living in disgrace. She stood among the other women, and called them to fight for their freedom and honour or die. The others were enthusiastic to her plan. They took the tents' poles and pegs and attacked the Roman guards, keeping a formation of a tight circle, as she had instructed them.
Khawlah led the attack, killed the first guard with her pole, with the other women following her. According to Al Waqidi, they managed to kill 30 Roman knights, while Khawlah was encouraging them with her verses, which in fact caused the enemy's blood to boil.
The Roman Leader was infuriated by what happened, and led a detachment of his knights against the women, though he tried first to tempt them with many promises. He told Khawlah that he planned to marry her and make her the first lady of Damascus. But she answered him calmly and with great contempt:
"I wouldn't even accept you to be the shepherd of my camels! How do you expect me to degrade myself and live with you? I swear that I'll be the one to cut off your head for your insolence."
In the ensuing battle, the ladies proved their mettle, keeping their grounds for some time, encouraging each other and driving off the attackers with their long poles. Suddenly, Khalid and the army reached the battlefield. In the ensuing fight, over 3000 Romans were killed. The women who took part in the fighting were proud to say that Khawlah killed five knights, including the leader that insulted her.
In another battle, the Muslims were overwhelmed by a much bigger Roman army. Many soldiers fled away, but not for long. Khawlah and the other women met the fleeing soldiers, questioning their claims of bravery and forced them to return to the battle. The men were stunned when they saw Khawlah drawing her sword and leading a counter-attack. They turned their horses and joined the battle, which was eventually won.
One of the knights present that day said:
"Our women were much harsher with us than the Romans. We felt that going back to fight and die was much easier than facing the fury of our women later on".
Khawlah became a legend during her life and remains a legend till this day. She set an example to men and women alike that one should fight for what he or she believes in, and never accept defeat.

By the time I was in my late teens I was a missionary.
I always felt close to ‘God' and prayer was a way of life for me. Deep in my mind, for I could never voice any doubts, I had some misgivings; some things that didn't make sense to me but as a missionary I felt I was calling to God, not to that particular church. I knew God, to be the Infinitely Powerful Being Who had created all there is. I could recognize a harmony and structure in all the nature around me, yet I found an absence of order wherever I looked around people. I learned to love Jesus as a messenger of God but it seemed strange to me, that God would require a sacrifice in order to forgive us. I believed that God was above having any need. I felt I could communicate with God as I was, without the necessity of an intermediary because, again, God didn't need any help to hear what I said.
One day I moved into a flat and met my neighbors who were Muslims. I thought I would try out some missionary work on them. They listened to me patiently and then I too, listened to them . They didn't try to explain any complicated issues, they just read to me from the Qu'ran. First they read in Arabic, then in English. It was Sura (Chapter) Maryam. I listened in silence. The beautiful sound of the Arabic recitation touched my heart and then the plain and direct language of the English translation struck a chord within. The beautiful story of Prophet Jesus (peace be upon him) and his miracle birth to the virgin Mary was a marvel of simplicity. God, or as I learned to call Him, Allah s.w.t. had provided mankind with Prophets and Messengers since the beginning of time. From Prophet Adam (peace be upon him), Prophet Abraham, Prophet Moses, Prophet Jesus and Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon them all) and many others. They were all sent with God's message to disdain all worship except, worship of the One True God and to submit to His Will. Such is the meaning of Islam. A Muslim is one who bows to the will of Allah s.w.t. refusing the worship of anyone or anything else and seeking to establish piety on earth.

How will you be if you reach a time when you will see people who do not distinguish truth from falsehood, believer from unbeliever, trustworthy from treacherous, nor ignorant from knowledgeable, and neither recognize what is right nor censure what is wrong?
Ibn Battah, Al-Ibânah Al-Kubrâ 1:188.
After reporting this narration, Imâm Ibn Battah (d. 387H) said:
To Allâh we belong and to Him we will return! We have reached that time, we have heard this and have come to know most of it and witnessed it. If a man to whom Allâh has bestowed sound reasoning looks and thinks carefully and ponders the matter of Islâm and its people and treads the rightly guided path as regards to them, it will become clear to him that most people have turned back on their heals, deviated from the correct path, and turned away from correct proof. Many people have started to like what they used to hate, allow what they used to forbid and recognize what they used to reject. And for sure – Allâh have mercy on you – this is not the [right] character of the Muslims, nor the behaviour of those who have insight into this religion, and neither of those who believe in it and are certain about it.
