Lillahi ta'ala

It is easy to forget that sometimes we do things for the wrong reasons; to impress, to oblige, to solve other problems, or to get acknowledged. The niah (niat) is vital and everything we do has to stem from the soul reason, i.e. lillahi ta'ala, or for Him - our Lord.



We seek knowledge, respect the elders, eat and drink, care for our family, friends and children all because of Allah s.w.t.



There's no such thing as 'I'm doing this for you...' or 'If not for my mother, I won't be doing this..'



It's time for a pause. Reflect and remember. Adjustments need to be made in our daily routine. I thank my eldest sister who injected this reminder in me some time ago (yet I often forget).



فَبِأَيِّ آلاءِ رَبِّكُمَا تُكَذِّبَانِ
Then which of the powers of your Lord would you deny? (Surah Ar-Rahman: 13)

The niyyat is lay between us and Allah. Not even angel knows.

It is difficult to know even our self sometimes, and this is when we get angry, mad or membebel..he..he..sebabnya terlupa if we do lilla hi taala..so thwn we wil not be angry, reject, mad or membebel..

may we all remind our self about niat all the time
