Hijrah and your purpose in life

Dear Burung Petalawati, Geroda and Wau,

You will be happier if you know your purpose in life and the true meaning of Hijrah.

It’s more than the physical move from Mecca to Medina or from anywhere -- from point A to point B.

Prophet Muhammad’s Hijrah was not a flight but a carefully planned migration which marks not only a break in history, but also a new start in 3 important aspects of life: social, economics and political.

Sometimes you must take a tactical retreat in order to come back stronger.

What’s my role in this universe?

I’m a candle in a cage and I’m happy. You can be a bird, free... But it can be lonely up there too... But if you know your role as a bird is to make the universe more beautiful, you will not mind flying alone...
