Once upon a time.

Two days left before my final 3rd semester exam. And believe it or not, it starts with the subject we all love the most: Mathematics Higher Level.
And here I am, all miserable with the uncompleted revisions and exercises, spilling my thoughts yet again =)

I’ve found a great story book.

Better than Cinderella, Snow White and the Little Mermaid. Trust me, even better than Doraemon.

Have you ever flipped through the Quran, and look at the title of the surah?

If we look carefully, they were so creative and beautifully crafted, some were named after a few animals that we are familiar with like an-Naml(ants), al-Ankabuut(spiders), and some were named after great Islamic figures, such as Luqman, Maryam, Hud, Nuh and many more.

Just look at how Allah put his words so beautifully that those who understand can feel closer to him. And also, I found the chapters’ titles to be rather attractive.

It is amazing to know that Allah did his best in trying to open up the eyes of his servants.

And yet, some of us are too blind to see the miracles. Not blind in terms of sight, but blind in the heart.

"Have they not traveled in the land that they should have hearts with which to understand, or ears with which to hear? Certainly, it is not the eyes that are blind, but blind the hearts, which are in the breasts. "
Surah al-Hajj, 22:46

So, ever feel confused when our younger siblings demanded a bedtime story (my sisters did this all the time)? Now we know where to find a good one. =)

wish me luck for this Thursday!Go go math!
