Indeed it's a blessed Ramadhan.

Ramadhan never fails to make me feel at peace, and Ramadhan this time gives me lotsa reasons to be happy about.

1) The release of 5 ISA detainees.

I managed to talk to Kak Laila just now, and the first thing she said to me "Fadiah, akak kat sabah ni, mahal kena charge bill fadiah nanti, baca blog akak, akak teringat kat korang semua!"...she sounded extremely happy. She told me she has been getting calls and smses from all over the world since yesterday.

Alhamdulillah. I couldn't be happier for her. I guess this is the biggest gift God has ever sent to me in this month of Ramadhan, the indescribable good feeling. The first thing that popped up in my head the moment I heard about the release was "Suhaib must be so happy, he will spend his raya with his dad!".

I still remember crying over one blog post by Kak Laila about one year ago, it was about a letter sent by the husband, Mat Sah to their son, Suhaib, apologizing to Suhaib for not being able to be there for him.

Thank you God.

2) SUHAKAM public inquiry

Commenting on the decision handed down by the Commissioners on the SUHAKAM public inquiry into the arrest and detention of 5 legal aid lawyers on the issue whether SUHAKAM has the power to compel the police to record their statements, our counsel Mr Puravalen said to us "see, all of you have contributed to the development of jurisprudence in this country, and this happens in the month of Ramadhan".

Syuhaini and I just looked at him and the same thing crossed our minds ("kami budak baru belajar, banyak lagi kena belajar, dan sangat gembira diberi peluang untuk terus belajar!")

And my favorite quote of the day was "the issue of procedure has turned into substantive right"- Mr Puravalen.

3) My darling angels-Afwa Adeena Farha and kakak.

I will be celebrating my raya with kakak, abang azlee and my darling niece in Wolverhampton, together with a bunch of good friends of mine.

Selamat hari raya aidil fitri to every one. Maaf segala salah dan silap.
