Of cake and patience.

I baked a cake yesterday. a chocolate cake.  for someone. ^_^

So, anyways, one of the trick in baking is that once a cake is cooked, you’re not supposed to depan the cake until it’s cooled. or else it will break.

but being excited that I am, wanting to see if it’s alright, I took it out only 10 mins after I got it out of the oven. oh wait, there were two cakes because I was going to layer them. and yes, I depan them both right after they were out of the oven.

As expected, they break.  -_-

Fortunately I managed to conceal them with icing. 😀

But the damage for my impatience in baking was only done to a cake.

I wonder, what if (and this is only an if) if I am impatient in all the other things that I do in life, that I want to see the result immediately after, I go and do something which I know I’m supposed to wait til it happen?
I wonder what kind of damages would I cause…

-_-

ya Allah, I pray that You will instill patience in me and remind me to be patient in everything that I do. and remind me, that sometimes, what I do might not get me the result that I aim for. Because in the end You will always reward me with the better of things.

For only You know which is good for me and which is not.

Ameen.

Last 10 days! faster!

Jatuh dan bangun kembali.

Hari ni terketuk lagi. Ketukan hari ini sangat kuat berbanding minggu lepas.

Kerana perbincangan hari ini bukan perihal dia, mereka atau sesiapa.

Tapi perihal diri sendiri.

Diri yang ingin menjadi Muslim dalam erti kata yang sebenar. Ingin memahami Islam sama seperti apa yang difahami generasi awal. Akan tetapi sejak akhir-akhir ini terasa cukup penat.

Rupanya rasa penat itu datang dari diri sendiri. Kedhaifan diri yang belum kenal erti perjuangan.

Sungguh, manhaj itu mudah. Akan tetapi, ianya memerlukan mujahadah. Yang akhirnya, jawapan kepenatan tadi berbalik semula kepada iman dan taqwa.

ya Allah, doaku agar dijauhkan dari putaran yang merosakkan itu.

3: 165 Dan mengapa kamu (heran) ketika ditimpa musibah (kekalahan perang Uhud), padahal kamu telah menimpakan musibah dua kali lipat (kepada musuh-musuhmu pada perang Badar) kamu berkata, “Dari mana datangnya (kekalahan) ini?” Katakanlah, “Itu dari (kesalahan) dirimu sendiri.” Sungguh, Allah Mahakuasa atas segala sesuatu.
