Ask it!
Are my intentions alright?

Waking up in the morning, gotta make my prayer
Am I really gonna' make it, when there is no one there?

Taking trips to the masjid (mosque), even when it's tough
Am I going for the sake of Allah? Am I showing off?

Gonna' get me the knowledge, gonna study Islam
Am I going just to build my ego? so they call me “the Man”?

Does it matter if the people respect me, when its not for Allah?
When I know anytime He can take me, without one real du'a (prayer)

Does it matter if they say I'm a big shot?
when I get no reward for my deeds
And I'm dragged on the Day of Resurrection
Cause of the folks that I wanted to please

Plus I know that Allah has the power
To raise me up in their eyes if it need be
I should always make my intentions, for my Lord, Allah completely

Are my Intentions alright?
Am I doing for Allah?
When I'm looking deep, deep down inside
Do I have the right niyyah?

Wearing thoubs with a kufi, kufi
Miswaks leather socks like the old days
Am I trying to follow the Prophet? or am I seeking praise?

Giving talks on Islam to people
I'd be quoting Hadith and Qur'an
Am I speaking so they like how I'm speaking? and they say I'm “the Bomb”

Donating to Islamic centers, giving money so the Deen can grow
Am I giving for the sake of Allah? or is it for show?

Many times I have found my intentions
Are not what I want them to be
I know I start on the right direction
But Shaitan starts talking to me

And I forget that without my niyyah, I'm just wasting my time
My intentions cannot bring the reward, when they're out of line
So I pray to Allah to help me, to do everything for Him only

Doesn't matter if the people despise me
Cause with Allah I can never be lonely

Ya Allah, accept this niyyah
Coming from young Muslims striving to be believers
So on the day, our deeds You'll measure. Know we only did this strictly for Your pleasure, Your pleasure
Your mercy, Your ajur (reward), Your Jannah (heaven), forever and ever and ever

And reward us for those who listen
Heeded to the message, changing their condition
And know that everything up until this point I've ever written
I submit as my repentance
And if its blessings You're sending my way
I beg You hold them to the judgement day
so maybe in Jannah you can look back and was a lovely day, a lovely, a lovely day, yes a lovely day
Are my intentions, alright, am I doing for Allah
When I am looking deep deep down inside, do I have the right niyyah (intention)?

Are my Intentions alright?
Am I doing for Allah?
When I'm looking deep, deep down inside
Do I have the right niyyah?

Random mumbling:
Sometimes, YOU are the problem of yourself. Isn't it?
And ....
Usually, YOU are the one that will solve it too! ;)
Well, YOU are not so bad.. !
[ as after all, gain or loss.. it's you that will get it right??]

Just keep trying to DO better..
as only Allah can make us BE better...
InsyaAllah ^_^

Sirru 'Ala barakatillah, Saudaraku di Mesir :)

Protesters have once again taken to the streets of the country's second city - Alexandria.

But this time, they are motivated by a sense of civic responsibility and pride.

Al Jazeera's Jamal Elshayyal reports.

Berdegar-degar saya mendengar kenyataan 'sepihak' di media arus perdana mengatakan revolusi rakyat Mesir adalah satu perkara
dan mengatakan revolusi itu adalah perkara yang tidak BAIK.

Allah itu lebih hebat perancanganNya..
dan mereka yang memperjuangkan (mengadakan revolusi) ini lebih bijak dan cemerlang dari 'sepihak' itu..

selepas 18 hari, Hosni Mubarak meletak jawatan
dan hari ini, rakyat mesir keluar membersihkan Alexendria.

Lihat. Ia suatu yang hebat bukan.
Subhanallah.. :)

ps: Revolusi rakyat Mesir adalah peringatan untuk pemimpin Malaysia.. :)
