• Serendipity means a "fortunate happenstance" or "pleasant surprise".

    I suppose a lot of good things in my life happened when I least planned it. My moving to Malaysia, for instance. It happened so suddenly and abruptly, and changed my life 180 degrees. Life was pretty bad for me back in Egypt with weekly trips to the hospital, breathless nights at the ward, and crying myself to sleep because my disease became unbeareable at times. So coming home was like a heaven sent salvation for me.
  • Being close to my family, and being healthy has really turned my life around. My friends always comment on how much healthier I look now, alhamdulillah for that. I suppose I'm happier too here, not having to think about what antibiotisc to take, or when my next doctor's appointment will be. I'm a lot more carefree now, and I find myself laughing a lot more, too. It's a different kind of happiness that I've felt when I was back in Egypt, but sometimes different is good, too.
  • I remember reading the tafseer of Surah Muhammad and coming upon these verses (Ayat 5-7). It always made me feel better when I read these, and I feel that He has done what He says in the Quran, for me.

  •  I used to plan my life and fill it with so much expectations and dreams that when they fail, my heart crashes to the ground. Now I learnt that the best things in life come when you least expect it, and that sometimes the best thing you can do is just put your trust in Him and believe that things will work out even better than what we plan.
  • InsyaAllah, insyaAllah.
