The year's really coming to a close, though it feels like only yesterday i was ushering in 1430/2009. is it bcos i'm older that the days seem to flash by faster than a shikanzen? how is it that i'm already in december when i have such vague recollection of going through the rest of the year? how come 12 months have almost passed and i havent done anything truly & deeply meaningful? how can i be squandering such precious time when time is the very thing i'm running out of?
Sheessh i dunno.
But its still coming, regardless. and again, resolutions will abound and although many will wither & die, thats just the way it is.
For the muslims, the maal hijrah will be upon us very soon and usually in the mad rush of our daily lives, it fails to leave us with that much of an impact. thing is, we're actually pretty lucky to be celebrating 2 new years almost back to back.. both a part of what we are & equally important :)
As usual, as a reminder to myself & family, i'm putting up again the new year duas. although there are those who consider it bid'ah, personally i consider it as any other dua seeking the mercy & benevolence of the AlMighty.
Doa Akhir TahunDibaca menjelang akhir tahun baru Islam, sesudah asar atau sebelum maghrib pada 29 atau 30 Dzulhijah.
Lets usher in the new year with renewed faith & hope and just try to be the best that we can be, at any level, at any age :)
Selamat Menyambut Maal Hijrah 1431, semoga dilimpahi nikmat & berkat.
