There's actually nothing about Monday blues :P. Sorry to trick you into it. I promise you it will be very quick. The reason for this post is because of the urge of 'I-just-have-got-to-share-it-here'. Especially to remind myself over and over again laaa..
Indeed, the righteous will be among gardens and springs, Accepting what their Lord has given them. Indeed, they were before that doers of good. They used to sleep but little of the night, And in the hours before dawn they would ask forgiveness, And from their properties was [given] the right of the [needy] petitioner and the deprived.(Quran 51:15-19)
Yes Amelia... to sleep little. *clear throat*... But bukan sleep little by spending time watching anime ker.. or korean drama series ker.. the answer is on verse 18....
Verse 18 highlights the greatness of the one-third of the night "And in the hours before dawn they would ask forgiveness". It is narrated by Abu Hurairah r.a.:
Allah's Apostle (p.b.u.h) said, "Our Lord, the Blessed, the Superior, comes every night down on the nearest Heaven to us when the last third of the night remains, saying: "Is there anyone to invoke Me, so that I may respond to invocation? Is there anyone to ask Me, so that I may grant him his request? Is there anyone seeking My forgiveness, so that I may forgive him?" (Sahih Bukhari)
You see~~ He is always waiting for us. To forgive us. I love you Allah!
And to the last verse.. since my Arabic is close to zero, I have also searched for other translations too. In one of the translations, verse 19 was translated as "...to give to those needy who 'asked' (for Sadaqah) and to those who did not 'asked' (for Sadaqah). Aaaa... if you haven't paid your Zakat.. silalah do so ye. Zakat pendapatan.. zakat simpanan.. zakat emas or perak... That goes to me too. Got to do it soon too. :P Trust me, you will never go bankrupt by giving your portion. Instead Allah has promised to give you more in return. ;)
That's it. Back to work everyone... Enjoy your Monday! :D Told you it's going to be quick!
