My thought on the  ablutions before prayers for muslims

Ok I am not that knowledgeable in my religion that I’m practicing  which is Islam.  However this is just my thought on the ablutions before prayers.  

There’s few areas that we need to clean and wash through  and all the steps might have the reason why we doing it.  Like I said this is just my thought so judge me if you think you’re knowledgeable Hahaha.  

Firstly we wash our hands.  The reason for this I think because we always touch things and sometimes we even forget to clean our hands.  

Secondly we gargle in order to clean the interior of our mouth.  And for this i feel that due to our hectic lifestyle we sometimes  forgot to drink enough water and to be self conscious  in our hygiene. So I think in order to pray we need to make sure we smell good and do have some self respect.  

Thirdly,  we wash our nose.  As for this I feel that sometimes it’s not proper for us to dig our nose and clean in public therefore maybe this is part of the reason why we clean our nose.  

Forth,  we wash through our face.  Again due to our hectic  lifestyle we might forget to notice how oily and dirty our face so I think this might support the reason. Haha

Fifth,  we wash through our hands till the elbow area.  As for this I feel that it helps us to cleanse the sweat and dirt that were on our hands. 

Sixth,  we wash our front hair or head.  Ok maybe we do this because it cleanse off the sweat and the oiliness that are on our head and somehow I feel it helps me to feel relaxed. 

Seventh,  we wash our ears.  Maybe becauseit helps to cleanse the dirt…hmmmm..

And lastly,  we washed our feet this is because  we didn’t really notice how dirty our feet so maybe this might  support the reason. 

Bottom line I believe we do all this in order to cleanse ourself from dirt,  sweat and for our hygienic purposes.  It may sound troublesome but somehow whenever  I do all the steps properly I feel relaxed and peace and I’m not sure why.  So yup that’s I feel about today’s topic

My purpose in life

Let me drop down few purpose in life that I can think of as to reminds me when I feel down and get emotional and unmotivated. 

  • Live happily and do things because of Allah not for people. 
  • Make my parents happy and proud of me. 
  • Achieve my goals to be an artist or designer, eventhough I am one but lots more of things for to learn and exposed to. As knowledge is never enough. 
  • Give back o the society. 
  • Be financially stable so that I won’t have debt in life. 
  • Retire happily. 
  • Have a beautiful family, wife and children, maybe at least 4 children. 
  • Travel the world and discover the unknown.
  •  Be kind and respect to people and bring inspiration to others. 

That’s what I can think as for now. I’m going with the flow to the plans that God has set and do it right and work hard to achieve it.  May God always guide me through and open up opportunities for me to grow and be successful. Amin. 

Expressing through art

Earlier I had an art session which needed me to decorate a box to show or express my feelings.  We were told to decorate the outer box as to represent how people see us and the inner box as to show how we feel about our self And the attached picture above was my creation. We were given 1hr to decorate it and another hour to explained on our creation. 

Subconsciously,  I just do as what I feel and paste whatever that my mind wanted me to paste on the box.

Let me explained on the outer side first.  

Living in this fast pace society humans tend to be competitive and sometimes we do something without thinking much of the consequences. 

As for the top of the box  you noticed I paste a colourful flowery silhouette of a person with the word  special.  That figure is representing me with  my colourful, loud and bold character and personality.  The colours basically representing my jovial,  go with the flow type of person and always do something to make myself feels good.  Through experiences Ive leant in order to make your life beautiful you have to change how you portray yourself and the way you think about yourself.   

As far as I know,  some  people that knows me able to accept my character but some just can’t. If you ask me why I don’t think I know why.  Lol.  

I never feel sad if a person can’t click with me as I believe I am special and there’s other people that will appreciate me as a friend or a human being.  

Last few month has been a rough months for me,  I learnt who is my true friends,  I’ve learnt on my mistakes,  and I realised that everything that happen to us have been planned by the almighty.  ‘He’  gave us challenges because he know we are strong and able to handle it and at the same time he want us to realised on our wrong doing.  If you noticed there’s many eyes were pasted on the cover of the box. Basically that representing people around us.  Humans can’t escape from making mistakes and we also have the right to judge and make an assumption on a situation we see.  Those eyes are my threat. Even though I know I don’t care on what others think about me but through the stares I somehow get insecure. Lol.  Does it sound contradicting?? Lol

We may think positively in every situation we faced but as humans we have a feeling that lead to ego,  insecure and so on to appear. 

Alright so now let’s move on to the side of the box.  Ok the sides basically showing my interest and goals in life.  I am a people-oriented and therefore I appreciate freedom. Family and friends that I can rely on are the pillars of motivation  for me.  I don’t like to be lock in a space,  I will get easily bored and i am nature person.  That’s somehow a summarize on the outer side of the box or my expression of how people see on me. 

OK the above are the back of the cover. The tiger represents myself and the butterfly representing my goals.  Yup,  it’s hard for me to chase my goals as there’s no such thing as smooth journey in life.  We have to fall,  injured, cry,  suffer before we achieved to what we want it to be.  And the word FABULOUS  Basically just shows my personality as I always try to  think positively in every situation I faced.  

And now the last part which is inner side of the box which expressing how I feel about myself. 

OK I realised our life is like a wave that goes up and down,  Even though we know we try our best to be cheerful and stay positive but there’s a corner of sadness and sorrow in us.  Today we may feel happy the next day we feel stressed up it’s uncertain.  The red colour representing my sadness and worries as I always tend to think too much and the blue representing my happiness.  The rest such as stars and shinning papers just representing my goals  that I have that Im still striving to achieve. 

 Ok so basically here’s my share on what I feel about my life.  Do tag me if you feel like you wanna share urs.  Let us share some love and learn from one another.
