My 1st post

Hmm.... I wonder what am I gonna talk about on my first post..??

After much thought, I decided to introduce myself.

My name is Ahmad Syafiq bin Mohd. Amin and I'm 18 years of age. My birthday is on the 14th of October 1989, or equivalent to the Islamic calendar: 13 Rabiulawwal 1410H. Now is the year 1428H and the pilgrimage season in Mecca (Makkah Al-Mukarramah) will be starting on 9 Zulhijjah 1428H, or equal to the 19th of December 2007 when 3 million Muslims from all over the world come to gather at Arafah, where they will perform their prayers and read the Koran (Al-Quran) for 1 whole day to find solace in their heart and strengthen their faith and belief towards God Almighty (Allah s.w.t). This shows that no matter from which country you come from, which race you belong to, what skin colour you have on your body, and especially, whether you're male or female are not important in this case. This shows that all Muslims are equal and are given equal rights. The pilgrimage in Mecca is also a symbol of unity of all Muslims as they worship the one and only God that they believe in (Allah s.w.t).

To continue writing, one of my favourite hobbies is to collect foreign coins. Whenever my mom goes overseas, she would bring back the coins for me to collect and add it to my collection (even though it is all jumbled up inside the case). The coins that I've collected so far came from approximately 10-15 countries (can't exactly remember, sorry). When my mom comes back from Egypt tomorrow, the coin 'family' will grow bigger and more diverse.

Well, this is all I can write so far as I just want a short intro of my humble blog. Till then, to all my friends (especially those from IBDP), happy holidays. I'll see you guys in January 2008 when school re-opens. Assalamualaikum (Peace be upon you) and goodbye..
