Star Wars and a new year

About two weeks ago the new Star Wars: The Last Jedi was released. Fortunatly holidays were close, so me and my dad being both Star Wars fans (rather me than him) decided to await the few days till we could finally see each other again and go to the cinema together. Because we hadn´t watched the last episode (VII) we had to catch up on that first. Wouldn´t be funny to watch the new one and not understanding half of the plot.

This way it happened that I spent new year´s eve with watching Star Wars. And started the new year (actually one day later) with watching Star Wars. Honestly I don´t really care about new year. I mean it´s only a change of dates, not like something magical would happen. Anyways I have to admit that after the two movies I am even more into the Star Wars stuff than before. That´s why I had to share my impressions with you. No, it won´t be about how great the special effects are or how bad or good I find the cast. It gonna be quiet deeper. … More Star Wars and a new year

A weird week II – Study and Love Consulting

Assalamualaikum everyone,

Like I told you in the last post I was thinking about writing a sequel to the first part of a weird week because there was still stuff I didn´t managed to write about. Probably “A weird month” would be a more appropriate title because after the last part more tell-able events occurred. So I am kind of glad I didn´t picked up on this topic before because the last days gave me even more input about the topic – not study but rather the second one.
Why I named this part study and love consulting? … More A weird week II – Study and Love Consulting

A weird week

Usually I don´t write a lot about my daily life. Or do I?

However, my last week, or rather last weeks (in plural) were quiet weird. Weird in which way? In all possible ways I guess. Full of stress, tears, laughter, love, all kind of emotions, experiences and lessons. Especially because of the last one I thought about writing it down. For myself on the one hand, to remember what I learned out of those weird days, and on the other hand in hope that someone can take a benefit out of it.

A summary in quotes:

Jodoh itu ga kemana. Pasti ketemu lagi.

Orang yang kita suka belum tentu baik untuk kita. Jangan terlalu percaya kepada perasaan. Allah Maha Tau. Maka percayalah apa yang Allah rencanakan bagi kita itu pasti baik.

Sebagus apapun sebuah tempat, tidak bakal memberi kebahagiaan jika kamu tidak mendapatkan cinta disana.

Mungkin agak serem jalan sendiri tapi lebih serem dapat dosa jalan berduaan.

I guess sometimes it´s okay to lose something. Because when it returns to you, you appreciate it even more.

Enjoy reading! … More A weird week

Pahlawanku – Awal Cerita

Di post terakhir (which that seems like ages ago) aku cerita tentang arti pahlawan dan apa yang membuat seseorang layak untuk dipanggil pahlawan menurutku. Kali ini aku ingin cerita tentang pahlawan pertama dalam hidupku. Seorang pahlawan yang kita semua miliki. Pahlawanku adalah Ibuku. Setiap Ibu punya cerita pengorbanan sendiri dan setiap anak punya cerita perjuangan seorang ibu di balik hidupnya. Nah, ini adalah cerita perjuangan Ibuku yang membuatnya menjadi seorang pahlawan bagi ku dan juga mengapa dia menjadi insipirasi utamaku… … More Pahlawanku – Awal Cerita

Saling mengenal setelah menikah lebih indah

Ini bukan sekedar tausiyah semacam diceritain sama ustad-ustad. Ini hanya sekedar sharing pengalaman. Bukan pengalaman aku sendiri yaaa. Diriku belum bisa ceritain pengalaman pernikahan karena yah memang ga ada, belum ada. Ini pengalaman seorang teman dekatku. Kita dulu duduk bersama di bangku SMA (atau sederajat karena di Jerman namanya bukan SMA). Beberapa bulan setelah kita lulus dia menikah. Dia bukan seorang muslim, bukan religius, percaya Tuhan pun tidak (atau mungkin belum). Dan sebelum dia dan pasangannya menikah, mereka baru kenal tiga bulan. Jadi bagaimana dia bisa menikah semuda itu walaupun tidak ada latar belakang yang mendukungnya untuk melakukan hal itu? … More Saling mengenal setelah menikah lebih indah

Ramadan Review I

Bismillahirahmanirahim

In the previos post I talked about my experience with pain or rather the conclusions out of it – in a rather general way. Because I realized that it can helpt to read or get to know aobut others experiences, I decided to share mine, in hope it could help anyone.

To summarize from the post before: the last days of Ramadan were quiet hard for me because of a certain thing (I don´t want to call it problem) that stuck in my mind and haunted me. In the following you gonna get a little more insight to the story. … More Ramadan Review I

Pain

“Everyone wants happiness, no one wants pain But there won´t be sunshine without any rain.” We all experience pain in our lives – even if we might wish and try to always stay happy and strong. The last days of Ramadan (and also some after it) it  was the topic that haunted me. That´s why … More Pain

Ramadan Talk

I was asked to write a text for an interreligious Iftar last week. That´s why it´s exceptionally in german. So this blog can be finally be called trilingual. (Maybe I could add some other languages…). It´s actually not the version I presented at that evening but closer to the original one. (The text was edited a few times to fit into the framework of the event.)

Going to the woods / A day out with the kids

The last week I had probably the happiest days in the last several… maybe month. Why? Bukan karena ketemu doi (emang ada doi? Ya tergantung definisi sih). Atau mungkin juga karena ketemu doi

I went to my parents home for the weekend and on one day there was a pengajian[1] (or sohbet in turkish), where I met again with my three beloved kiddos (the children of my mother´s friend that I know since their birth and I used to take care of sometimes) after I haven´t seen them for several month. … More Going to the woods / A day out with the kids
