Birthday: A year near to the death

Assalamualaikum wbt

Guess it's not too late to wish all of you Eid Mubarak!
Kullu am wa entum bilkhair - May you be well throughout the year

Taqaballahu minna wa minkum - May Allah accept it (the good deeds) from you and us


Well, this year Eid was a little bit special for me. It's fall on my birthday and i'd a very special 'suprise' celebration with the whole family right after we broke our Arafah sunnah fasting.




Alhamdulillah, so many reasons for me to be grateful to Allah


I've received enormous beautiful wishes and prayers
A lovely dress from my husband
A huge bouquet of sunflowers from my friend
A flowery dress from my SIL
A nice clock for my living hall from my sisters
A pair of graceful skirt and top from my SIL
And a mango plant to be planted in front of my house from my brother!

And one might wonder,

Why am i so fussy on this birthday thingy?

For some, it is just a date
Or just another year to complete the journey
Or just a figure that shows how old you are as a person

For me?

It's a once a year celebration.

To be happy for the fact that i've been given another year of a wonderful life with my family and friends. The day that i congratulate myself for all the kind and good deeds that have been done and the mistakes that should been avoided.

It's the day that I  need to remember that a few years back, I was born in this world with an innocent and pure heart, with responsibilities and tasks on my shoulders and with mission to complete as the caliph in this world.

Would i remain as an innocent person?
Would i be able to maintain the purity of my heart?
Have i done all i could to bear the responsibilities?
Have i do what it takes to complete the mission?

I hope i will meet Allah in a good shape, a good heart and a completed task
We should be afraid of death
We should prepare for it instead as it always follow us every where we go..

Thanks all for the kind and warm wishes
I love you to the moon and back!


Love,

Salwa

Lovely wishes and prayers you've chanted
Warm my soul as what I always wanted

Making me smile and make me happy

Another year near to death
and I wonder what have I prepared?
