mind rant #12: hello 2013

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيمِ

*kofkof* it should be Today rather than tomorrow. heh.

hello 2013.

1. i'm not good with making resolutions.
2. i'm not sure if i have even made one before.
3. maybe because i know i'm bound to leave it lying around.
4. resolutions are goals right?
5. why do we have to make yearly ones when we are already making daily ones? (a.k.a niat pagi-pagi depan cermin)
6. i don't like new year celebrations.
7. i find it lagho and pointless. (because i'm a rather lagho-prone being)
8. plus, what's there to celebrate?
9. especially if we take time to sit down and think of the things we have done for the past year.
10. or maybe we actually don't take the time to sit down and think of the things that we have done in the past year? hm....
11. forgetting all those sins, all those wrong-doings, iman yang merudum, jiwa yang futur. sobs.
12. thus, this explains the celebration and the fireworks? (and the singing with menteri-menteri from what i've heard.) =,=''
13. we are too optimist perhaps? 
14. or too hopeful for a better future and a better self?
15. thus we think all is well, because we have written down resolutions that we'll be better. 
16. so we write things like; "pada Ramadhan tahun ini, saya akan pakai tudung."
17. or "by the end of 2013, i'll be a good Muslim."
18. hadoy..=,=''
19. i can actually die when i'm writing my 20th point.
20. you can actually die while reading my 21st point.
21. okay so i made my point that we can die anytime. 
22. and thus resolutions to change for the better is not just about writing it down,
23. or that they should have a time limit.
24. i've read so many times of how those Indonesian artists said things like; "saya akan memakai hijab selama 40 hari sahaja kerana terikat dengan kontrak"
25. astaghfirullahal'azim (repeat this 7 times. thank you)
26. only time will show whether malaysian muslims will end up like this. =,='' (naudzubillah)
27. okay the list is dragging on now.
28. i should stop and write a real resolution
29. the real resolution of izyan ariff 2013: *drumroll* 
30. new year is not a celebration, nor it is a time to write a bunch of long lists that will be forgotten.
31. it's the time for you to look back at your past year (or maybe life) wholly.
32. the things you have done and the things you haven't.
33. the things that have happened and the things that haven't.
34. the tests that Allah has thrown your way; Alhamdulillah.
35. the nikmat that Allah has never failed to give; Alhamdulillah.
36. the sins that you have committed, Astaghfirullah.
37. the times that you have forgotten; Astaghfirullah.
38. how far have you gone back to Him?
39. how far have you tried to go back to Him?
40. cause in the end, life is all about a journey to get back to Allah S.W.T.
41. reflections > resolutions. no?

goodbye 2012.
the end.

ps: i failed to write resolutions, yet again. :)
if you manage to write yours, i pray Allah grant you the Time to fulfill them all;
insyaAllah wa Aameen. :)

a good prayer, as always:

رَبَّنَا تَقَبَّلۡ مِنَّآ‌ۖ إِنَّكَ أَنتَ ٱلسَّمِيعُ ٱلۡعَلِيمُ

رَبَّنَا وَٱجۡعَلۡنَا مُسۡلِمَيۡنِ لَكَ وَمِن ذُرِّيَّتِنَآ أُمَّةً۬ مُّسۡلِمَةً۬ لَّكَ وَأَرِنَا مَنَاسِكَنَا وَتُبۡ عَلَيۡنَآ‌ۖ إِنَّكَ أَنتَ ٱلتَّوَّابُ ٱلرَّحِيمُ

"Ya Tuhan kami terimalah daripada kami [amalan kami], 
sesungguhnya Engkaulah Yang Maha Mendengar lagi Maha Mengetahui". 
Ya Tuhan kami, jadikanlah kami berdua orang yang tunduk patuh kepada Engkau dan [jadikanlah] di antara anak cucu kami umat yang tunduk patuh kepada Engkau dan tunjukkanlah kepada kami cara-cara dan tempat-tempat ibadat haji kami, dan terimalah taubat kami. Sesungguhnya Engkaulah Yang Maha Penerima taubat lagi Maha Penyayang."
