Mahaguru58 turns 50 today!

Assalamualaikum dear Brothers and Sisters,

50 years ago, on this date, Zainol Abideen was born on Friday 19 Raby` al-awal 1378 A.H. 3rd October 1958 at the Penang Maternity Hospital.

Today marks the 50th anniversary of my birthday. It is Friday as well. 

I am grateful to Almighty Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala for gracing me with an eventful life that encompasses an era that was past British Colonial rule @ a year after Malaya achieved its Independence.

Living as a young boy in the 60s. Teenager in the 70s. Young man in the 80s.

Father in the late 80s. Zikri my son was born in 1988.

Nurzaimah was born in 1992.

Became a full fledged Da'ee in the 80s until now.

Have entered the Golden Age as of today.

To all my family, friends and supporters, I thank you for your wellwishes.

To my darling wife, I owe you my rest of my life. 

Thanks for being here for me when I needed you most, starting my life all over at the age of 42 from scratch!

Allah the Almighty knows just how much I love you!

ZR forever!

Jazakallah khairan kathiraw my dear Brothers and Sisters,

Just reached home here in KL safely with my darling.

Am quite touched by your wellwishes and really appreciate all your comments.

God willing, I will remain committed to blogging for the sake of Almighty Allah and for truth and justice without fear or favor.

Do keep me on track and correct me if I should ever get sidetracked in my journey through life from this moment onwards!

May Almighty Allah bless each and everyone of you for showing me your care and compassion!

Happy Belated Birthday.
I am sure you are blessed all the time and may you achieve all that you have hope for. But for many, I am sure that all we are craving for is the "Blessing from Him.
I was just about to switch of blogging to turn back to my books when my instinct gets me to scroll down further and ah ah.. god willing, you are NOW 50? 50?. BTW, no one on earth grows any younger, if you are 50 that day, I shall insyallah be 50 too, (still a long way) but I definately can't be going sweet 15.
