I really don’t like this time of the year. At the end of RAMADHAN.
In Brunei Darussalam, Alhamdulillah we are blessed with all the peace, stable economic and gold grow on trees (just kidding). My friend from Pakistan started this joke with her relatives in Pakistan that Bruneian are so rich because there is gold growing on trees. In this joke, there are some truth on how Allah s.w.t. bestow so much rezeki on Bruneians. His Majesty the Sultan just bestow “kurnia” (B$1000) to all handicapped, orphans and less fortunate people so we can celebrate Hari Raya or Eid Mubarak. (Alhamdulillah)
With all this good things happening in my country, I should be grateful. I am and yet I fear for my people and I, who sometimes forget this maybe our test from Allah s.w.t. Today is 27th Ramadhan and soon syawal will come. Between that time, Bruneians (including myself) tend to overspent and shop a lot. There are traffic jams in all shopping mall and everyone is busy to prepare for Hari Raya. I have a long list of shopping and chores to do.
The part I hate most is Ramadhan is going soon and I am busy with dunia. I I should be doing more for Allah s.w.t. because I would not know I will see another Ramadhan. Upon realization, please pray for me and my people dont let us be distracted with this world.
