Volunteering at TOF2014

Alhamdulillah last weekend I had an opportunity to do volunteering for Mercy Mission Malaysia at Twins of Faith Conference 2014. Every volunteers were divided into several sections. As usual am in Mothers Room. I think most of mothers acknowledge me, its been like almost every year am in this section. I love being in the Mothers Room. Its convenient for me as sometimes i need to bring my kids along if i had too. This year the participants in the room has increased. Its quite pack than last year & i think next event we need a bigger hall to accommodate! 

Looking at this year topics held in the main hall & workshop, totally ohsem! Semuaaaa best! All i can conclude is worth every penny! Most of the participant enjoyed the 2 days event. So lets target for next year TOF! They usually held on December, every year.

This is Mothers Room. As I told earlier in my previous post, there have live streaming from the Main Hall. Mom will seat together with their kids (only below 5 years, above need to register at Play & Pray which the kids will enjoy the activities inside Play & Pray).

The volunteer sisters in Mothers Room. Fulfilled the tummy first before work (before the moms & kids arrive). Yeah we totally need the energy! More works in the morning as we helping the participant to settle down before the conference started. 

We also been reminded by the head of volunteer early in the morning, 

"Lillahi Taala. What ever we did today & tomorrow is the seed for thereafter. InsyaAllah." 

*May Allah accept our deeds & bless us. Amiin.*

And lastly, we wrapped with Mothers Room Team Photo. Short of 2 sisters who need to get back early. Thank you Kak Rasinah (Project Manager of Mothers Room), she's the back bone of the team. You are sooooo dear to us, and the sisters thank you for your cooperation & good teamwork we had through out the event! *Eventhough i had my hard times doing the task as i had running nose & not feeling well I hope I'm not burdening others. Its explained why i wore sweater :'(*

Am gonna miss working you girls. 
InsyaAllah, with Allah will we gonna meet again. 
Love you all, Lillahi Taala.

Alhamdulillah, token of appreciation by Mercy Mission, 2015 Executive Note Book & Mug. The 2 books beside were given by a mom (Participant) who stayed in the Mothers Room. I cudnt express so  much, its beyond words. Its totally touched my heart as they recognise & appreciate us so much in the Mothers Room.  I pray Allah bless her & family. Amin.



Ibn Qayyim (May Allah have mercy on him) said that there are ten things that bring about the love of Allah.

1) Recitation of the Qur’ an with reflection and with understanding of its meanings.

2) Seeking closeness to Allah by performing voluntary deeds after having performed obligatory ones, for that leads one to the highest levels of love.

3) Remembering Allah during every situation – with one’s time, heart and deeds, one’s share of that love is to the degree of one’s share in that remembrance.

4) Preferring what He loves to what you love when your desires are strong.

5) Allowing your heart to reflect on His Names and Attributes.

6) Reflecting on His many favors and blessings, both the apparent ones and hidden ones, for that leads to His love.

7) Having your heart softened as it is worshipping Allah.

8) Being alone with Him in worship when He descends during the last third of the night. And this means to invoke Him, to recite His Speech, to stand with all sincerity and with good manners and with good submission, and then to end that with repentance and with seeking His forgiveness.

9) Sitting with those who are truthful in their love of Allah.

10) Staying away from all that creates barriers between the heart and Allah.

We ask Allah to grant us His love, and the love of those who love Him and the love of those actions which bring us close to him:)
