April

Bismillahi rahmani rahim April has ended. An amazing month with wonderful experiences and beautiful memories. Why I decided to write about it? April was always special to me. I think it is kind of my favorite month. You could consider me as a spring child not only because it´s when I was born but because … More April

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

Pahlawan itu apa?

Bismillahi-rahamani-rahim

Because today is Indonesia´s Independence day I thought it would appropriate to share another story of some experiences and thoughts with you guys that are connected to the topic of Idols and the question “What is a hero?” Pahlawan itu apa? And maybe even who is a hero? … More Pahlawan itu apa?

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

A Confrontation With Death

Loss is a part of life. People lose children, a spouse, a sibling, a relative or a friend. But looking at the regions where war and destructions rules and death could reach you every moment, from any direction many are losing their parents, their spouse, a lot of friends, their siblings, their relatives and their children. It´s a genocide. There have been many before. But it is spreading and the dimensions become bigger. It´s the death of humanity And I mean it like I say. Because what is happening right now primarily shows us one: It´s not long anymore until Yaumil Qiamah (the judgement day) is coming.
To use the winter break for something useful I went to the Juma´ah prayer with my parents after a long time. The topic of the Khutbah (the talk the Imam gives before the prayer) was the signs of Yaumil Qiamah coming closer considering the actual circumstances. … More A Confrontation With Death

Kinderlachen

Yesterday I drove home to my parents house – four hours by train that actually should have been 2 ½. But because some delays and train trouble it became four. But this was okay because I had a really great incident after waiting for the next train for about an hour. (Even if I would … More Kinderlachen
