I Note: 10 January 2021

In the name of Allah, The Most Gracious, The Most Merciful.

Here is another video I want. It’s super short but super meaningful to me.

Takeaways from the video:

1) Pay attention to your surroundings. I have always been an aloof person. It’s partly the effect of having been bullied and socially ridiculed. Also partly the result of having low self-esteem. I just tend to shut off the rest of the world so I don’t see details in my surroundings. Since both the author and the Indonesian lady maintained awareness of each other, it helped the author in the end.

2) Always inform someone of your whereabouts, even as you’d like some time alone. I think it’s important that someone you trust is made known of where you’d be and what you’d be doing so that it’ll be easier for them to check in on you. Really helps during times of emergency.

3) As Muslims, we are the ambassadors of our religion. As evident, the author has attached the Indonesian lady who helped her as her face of Islam. Hopefully, I can be someone’s face of Islam at one point in time because that means I have successfully shared the message of Islam.

And Allah knows best. – MM
