Salam and Hello Reader,
Alhamdulillah I have recovered from fever, and many thanks for your care and concern. Really, really appreciate it. May Allah bless you for all the wonderful du'a that you have made for me, amiin..
At the moment I am currently looking forward to reading the book called Personality Plus from Lutfi, which is currently read by Syafiqah. I'll be the next to borrow this copy!! The book covers 4 different types of personality traits that have been extensively explained by Lutfi to us in many different occasions (ahah) and well-analysed by Syafiqah and myself. The book content sounds pretty much fun and informative, and I seriously can't wait to read it in the near time. It's fun to discover who you are and to appreciate the uniqueness and shortcomings not only in yourself but also in others.
My point is that, it is often easy to be self-proclaiming that you know who you truly are, but really there is no harm in discovering your hidden potentials and weaknesses through extra reading. We fully utilise our individual strengths, and certainly, improving the weaknesses in due course. Insya-Allah.
As vicegerents of Allah, each individual is born unique and not one is similar to the other. That is the beauty of Allah's creation. The world is an utter boredom if everyone has identical personality traits.
That reminds me of Hujurat 49:13
O mankind! We created you from a single (pair) of a male and a female, and made you into nations and tribes, that ye may know each other (not that ye may despise (each other). Verily the most honoured of you in the sight of God is (He who is) the most righteous of you. And God has full knowledge and is well acquainted (with all things).
The ayat says that men is created in pairs, and the phrase 'into nations and tribes, that ye may know each other..'denote getting to know others of different backgrounds. The apparent fact is that human beings are of great variety and we should not hate or despise others on the basis of these differences.
I may draw an abrupt conclusion here, that: I am unique, and so are you :)
Curious in finding out the uniqueness in me, I took a random online character test just recently, and below is the result:
Relationships play a key role in Amalina's life, she tends to be a very trusting individual, she enjoys making new friends and developing new relationships. She often finds herself involved in many things at once and loves social functions. Amalina enjoys encouraging those around her. People see her as a person who frequently inspires others.
Recognizing the value of a good relationship, Amalina is very patient and caring when relating to others. She is even-paced; and Amalina usually remains calm and relaxed, even in situations that may ruffle some others. She likes the role of a peacemaker, when working through problems, Amalina tries to rely on successful strategies that have proven results.
Amalina prefers to work through problems by analyzing things that worked in the past. She is willing to follow another person's lead if they display adequate ability and if Amalina has confidence in their ability. She is someone who is able to lead, if necessary; but usually prefers to wait and see if another person volunteers first.
Not afraid to take a bold approach, Amalina is willing to challenge the status quo. She is original and creative, and acts with confidence when implementing new solutions. Amalina will tend to use a balance of intuition and facts when making decisions, and once she has made a decision, she will not be afraid to take action upon it.

That's just me :). You may or may not wholly agree.
And as for you,
May Allah and your loved ones appreciate the uniqueness in you. Because, at least to me, you are indeed special. Very:)
ps: I will read Personality Plus and will tell more. Meanwhile, I should be blogging on Sheffield trip after this!
With love from
