Ramadhan 2014 – The Tests

Inna lillahi wa inna ilaihi raji’un …. May the souls of the victims rest in peace!

Latest news, a Malaysian airplane MH17 was shot down by a missile and crashed in Ukraine. 295 passengers died.

It’s sad …almost everyday as I read the news feed, more and more sad news appeared.

As the conflict in Gaza continues, the typhoon in Philippines, the earthquake in Indonesia and Japan, many people are suffering ….. sometimes I think there are more news that brings gloom and sadness to the people than happy ones.

This year Ramadhan, is truly a  tests to some and yet I am sure there are also the triumphs and gladness in other parts of the world.

Looking at all these, I think what I am going through is so insignificant.  Indeed, for us who though we may be facing trials in our personal and/or working life, we are better off than those who are facing bigger issues in their lives.  Losing a loved ones, losing your homes are much more harder to bear I’m sure.

Allah knows best ….

My condolences to all who are affected by these events ….. May they be given strength and patience to bear and go through this testing time.
