How soft is the wind 04: and there goes another one… (aftermath)

Sadly, another one of my friend has started a relationship. I was sad upon knowing it. Just because she had a problem, can’t solve it, then came a guy, and she choosed to follow him. I can only pray for the best for her.



A few years ago, I tried to *ehem* tackle this girl :). She brought a book with her one day. I thought that, “Aha, something to break the ice :)”. Slowly I approached her.

“What book is that?”

“This? A compilation of zikir.”

“Can I see it?”

“Sure, here it is.”

I took it and began to flip it. One of the prayer caught my attention. It is a removing sadness prayer. I read it there,

Removing Sadness

Abu Saeed Al-Khudri, may Allah be pleased with him, narrated that one day the Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, entered the mosque and found a man from Ansar, named Abu Umamah. He said: “O Abu Umamah! Why do I see you sitting in the mosque outside the time of prayer?” Abu Umamah replied: “Anxieties and debts have remained with me.” The Messenger of Allah asked: “Should I not teach you words, which if you say Allah will remove your anxiety and will settle your debt?” He replied: “Definitely, O Messenger of Allah.” He said: “Say when you wake up in the morning and when you reach the evening: ‘O Allah! I seek Your protection from anxiety and sorrow, and I seek Your protection from helplessness and laziness, and I seek Your protection from cowardice and miserliness, and I seek Your protection from the burden of debts and from the tyranny of men.” Abu Umamah said (later): “I did (as the Messenger of Allah said) and Allah removed my anxiety and settled my debt.” Related by Abu Dawud.

After that, I asked her, “Can I borrow this book for one day? I would like to make a copy of this prayer.”

“Sure, why not?”

From that day onwards, I read the prayer. Of course the result is not instantaneous, but with patience and faith… it will go away by God’s will.

Make it a routine, read it everyday. Hopefully, this will help you.



Oh yeah, I forgot, the aftermath of this soap opera :P. Silly me.

After that, I began to think, doubt began to fill my heart.

“Another one of my friends has started a relationship.. so, when will you? I think about it fr several times. This is a perfect excuse for me to join the group as well. After all, I am 20 years old already. I can think what is right and what is wrong. People can’t blame me for it. I can start a relationship too. Why not?”

Then, I remembered what my friend, Zulfahmi Al-Ploh (yeah… I know), used to say, “Just because most people do it, it is not meant they are right.”

Doubt began to disappear from my heart. Thank god, I am still not easily confused by the situation.

The only thing is, for how long? How much longer will I stay resilience?

I will never know….
