The sun was start rising when I got up. It’s Idul Adha 1436H. I started to hear all the noise. Akhhh, another Idul adha abroad, which has two side effects. I was happy but also sad coz it’s far from my family.
But here, I can meet the new family that I had when I was here for the big exchange of my life. It was a big movement through my life story and will remain still ’till the end of my life. A new family that shined the darkness spot of my life after my grief.
It was also a big sacrifice for me, to be brave of loosing all the luxury life just to learn what life is about. The same meaning of Idul adha, which is teaches us about sacrification.. when Prophet Ismail obyed the God’s will to sacrificed his son, and with all the fight inside himself, he dicided to obeyed.
When I decided to leave my hometown, for me, it was also a big sacrification. I got everything that a normal people aims in life. It’s not only enough but exceeded my expectation, but the changes is still needed. So I just leave.
And the things that I always remember is, no matter where we go, when we do good we’ll get good, sometimes it might delay, but doesn’t meant we will not get what we want. Because Allah decides everything, we just can ask and pray for His guidance, His kindness and His bless…
“Say: ‘Nothing will happen to us except what God has decreed for us: He is our protector’: and on God let the Believers put their trust. (The Noble Quran, 9:51)”
May Allah SWT always gives us the best in our life…
