Why is everybody getting Married?

Alhamdulillah today was a Barakat day for me because this morning my organization which is the Ittihadun Nisa Foundation conducted a Symposium for the Muslim women here in Cotabato City, the symposium was all about Seeking Knowledge a must for every Muslim, and Alhamdulillah it turned out well. I just noticed in that symposium when the Q&A came majority of the questions was all about marriage. And I just realized that 4 of my friends from the said Organization was engaged, namely Noraya Mustapha the Daughter of the Director of Land Transportation Office, Hanan Sarento a Science/English teacher at Rojas High School, Warda Hanafie a Teacher from Ibn Taymia Academy and the last is my Good Friend Bailyn Mamokhan inshalla will be engaged this june of this Year. All of them except Bailyn is planning to get settled or married this june or before Ramadhan.

After the symposium I, hanan, bailyn, warda and rocayda went to ziah boutique to canvass a cloth for hanan’s wedding dress and good to say that there is a cloth matched the motif in her wedding, after ziah we went to south seas mall to look for some cloth again, we are looking actually for a cheap and good cloth that matches her motif, but sad to say the cloths in that Mall is very expensive so we went out and we headed to Kitoks to get a lunch, if you are in my City, Kitoks is the name that has the cheapest the fastest and delicious food in town. So after that we headed to Panasonic Shop to look for appliances and etcetera like refrigerator and Beds and Mashallah it was a very opposite for the price that we’re looking for, do you know that the Beds’ price was 240,000 pesos? it was a shocking price! I said to warda that this bed can build me a house and she agreed. Well we went out and we scattered, I and Bailyn went to Internet CafĂ© and Warda, Hanan and Rocayda went to Perth Marketing It’s a computer shop, and after that we went home safe and tired.

This is my day for today.

Too Busy for a Friend..

One day a teacher asked her students to list the names of the other students in the room on two sheets of paper, leaving a space between each name.

Then she told them to think of the nicest thing they could say about each of their classmates and write it down.

It took the remainder of the class period to finish their assignment, and as the students left the room, each one handed in the papers.

That Saturday, the teacher wrote down the name of each student on a separate sheet of paper, and listed what everyone else had said about that individual.

On Monday she gave each student his or her list. Before long, the entire class was smiling. "Really?" she heard whispered. "I never knew that I meant anything to anyone!" and, "I didn't know others liked me so much." were most of the comments.

No one ever mentioned those papers in class again. She never knew if they discussed them after class or with their parents, but it didn't matter. The exercise had accomplished its purpose. The students were happy with themselves and one another. That group of students moved on.

Several years later, one of the students was killed in Viet Nam and his teacher attended the funeral of that special student. She had never seen a serviceman in a military coffin before. He looked so handsome, so mature.

The church was packed with his friends. One by one those who loved him took a last walk by the coffin. The teacher was the last one to bless the coffin.

As she stood there, one of the soldiers who acted as pallbearer came up to her. "Were you Mark's math teacher?" he asked. She nodded: "yes." Then he said: "Mark talked about you a lot."

After the funeral, most of Mark's former classmates went together to a luncheon. Mark's mother and father were there, obviously waiting to speak with his teacher.

"We want to show you something," his father said, taking a wallet out of his pocket. "They found this on Mark when he was killed. We thought you might recognize it."

Opening the billfold, he carefully removed two worn pieces of notebook paper that had obviously been taped, folded and refolded many times The teacher knew without looking that the papers were the ones on which she had listed all the good things each of Mark's classmates had said about him.

"Thank you so much for doing that," Mark's mother said. "As you can see, Mark treasured it."

All of Mark's former classmates started to gather around. Charlie smiled rather sheepishly and said, "I still have my list. It's in the top drawer of my desk at home."

Chuck's wife said, "Chuck asked me to put his in our wedding album"

"I have mine too," Marilyn said. "It's in my diary."

Then Vicki, another classmate, reached into her pocketbook, took out her wallet and showed her worn and frazzled list to the group. "I carry this with me at all times," Vicki said and without batting an eyelash, she continued: "I think we all saved our lists."

That's when the teacher finally sat down and cried. She cried for Mark and for all his friends who would never see him again.

The density of people in society is so thick that we forget that life will end one day. And we don't know when that one day will be.

So please, tell the people you love and care for, that they are special and important. Tell them, before it is too late.

And One Way To Accomplish This Is: Forward this message on. If you do not send it, you will have, once again passed up the wonderful opportunity to do something nice and beautiful.

If you've received this, it is because someone cares for you and it means there is probably at least someone for whom you care.

If you're "too busy" to take those few minutes right now to forward this message on, would this be the VERY first time you didn't do that little thing that would make a difference in your relationships?

The more people that you send this to, the better you'll be at reaching out to those you care about.

Remember, you reap what you sow. What you put into the lives of others comes back into your own.

May Your Day Be Blessed As Special As You Are

Abdullah Karim and Dikampong Kalilang

Alhamdulillah… kinasal na din si kaka moe kay kaka mhon, the weeding held at Sandakan resort and farms sa Sultan Kudarat Maguindanao, Mohammad “moe” Abdullah Karim is my first cousin from my Father side, actually pareho sila ng pangalan ng Father ko sa nickname lang nagkaiba.. hehehe

Ang daming tao pero maliit lang kilala ko sa mga relatives ko sa side ng tatay ko, I admit hindi talaga kami close sa mga cousin ko sa side ng tatay ko, nagkikita lang kasi kami pag my mga ganitong occasion like wedding or funeral, pero kahit ganung oras lang pagkikita namin alhamdulillah hindi rin sila nagbabago sa amin. Aaminin ko gusto ko maging close sa mga relatives ko sa side ng tatay ko, wala naman kasi problem sa relatives sa side ng nanay ko kasi di naman sila kalayuan sa amin kaya anytime na gusto ko hangout sa kanila madali lang silang puntahan unlike sa mga relatives ko sa tatay ko kalayo nila nasa mga baryo baryo kasi, at hirap pa mag commute at hmmm ang budget hindi naman ganun kaluwag. Pero this day masaya ako kasi nakita ko sila.
