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.

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

Liburan silaturahim di tempat keluarga jerman

Papaku orang jerman mualaf. Dia satu2 nya dari keluarga jerman yg beragama Islam, mungkin bisa di bilang satu2nya yang beragama.

Jadi kami liburan di tempat Tante yang tinggal dekat Nordsee, laut utara jerman. Dia tinggal berdua bersama anak satu2nya, sepupu ku. Terutama kita mau berkunjung ke tempat mereka karena udah lama ga ketemu, sekitar 4 tahun.
Dan sebagai Muslim kita kan wajib untuk memperkuat tali silaturahmi, terutama dengan saudara walaupun mereka tidak Muslim. Dan ini pertama kali tante dan sepupu melihat Mama dan aku memakai hijab. … More Liburan silaturahim di tempat keluarga jerman

When someone you spend almost every day with would almost not be around anymore if she hadn´t been saved of taking her own life? … More Suicide
