IAW 2012.. =))

Alhamdulillah (All praise to God) for making IAW a success. for giving us the opportunity to spread the beauty of islam to people around us and at the same time to strengthen our own understanding and knowledge about islam. it is indeed a memorable experience to be able to interact with all sorts of people with different perspective on how they view their life and also life of a muslim..

the best moment that I experienced is when I was telling about quran to my classmate,Elaine about Quran being universal and full of guidelines not just in terms of our prayer, but also attitude to others, history, science and others. and then when I was talking to her about there is a verse that state specifically about embryology but I could not remember which surah is that and then I was turning the quran (hoping that I could find that ayat)  and POP!!!! that exact verse came across!! Alhamdulillah .=)

surah Al-Mu'minun:14: Then We made the sperm-drop into a clinging clot, and We made the clot into a lump [of flesh], and We made [from] the lump, bones, and We covered the bones with flesh; then We developed him into another creation. So blessed is Allah , the best of creators.

and there was a moment that I feel so ashamed on how  limited knowledge I have about islam, that I could not answer their questions confidently. maybe its a sign for me to start reading!! to enquire the true knowledge about islam, global issue in islam, and basics little things that I have been practising for 20 years and counting..insyaAllah,..

96:1: Read! In the Name of your Lord, Who has created (all that exists), 
96:2: Has created man from a clot (a piece of thick coagulated blood). 
96:3: Read! And your Lord is the Most Generous,
96:4: Who taught by the pen 
96:5: Taught man that which he knew not.
96:6; Nay! Verily, man does transgress all bounds (in disbelief and evil deed, etc.)
96:7: Because he considers himself self-sufficient. 
96:8: Surely! Unto your Lord is the return

I also learned a lot about how good listening skills can touched some one hearts and it is the best medium in order to convey message to others. like logically communication is all about two ways communication when someone speaks, the other listen. but how good we are at listening? are we the person who just think we are right , do not want to even listen to others idea, are we the person who just literally thinks others are wrong? well, let us reflect back and improve on that.

Halal Food Festival was amazing! Thanks for all the endless support from seniors and friends..we received positive comments on how great the food was one after another. Alhamdulillah..there's even a guy asked about the name of that dish because he is going to cook later. hehe..and someone came again and again for that currypuff and even help us to promote it to his other friends..and the best part is we get the chance to tell others what is halal food, to correct the misconceptions that we are vegetarian, when in fact we aren't. =)

last but not least I would like to express my biggest appreciation from deep in my heart :
