I seriously need to record this down or it’ll decay with time. Besides, I’ve promised to so many friends who’re waiting for some hot updates from me (bhahaha… let me be). It has been quite sometimes actually but I have got no time to just sit and jot something about all the sweet-sour memories I have when I was in Harmain (Mecca and Medina. 1 = Haram. 2 = Harmain. Not Harams hokey… Arabic is just so cool). Oh, plus, another ‘lesson-learnt’ day in Karachi as my parents and I transit there before we eventually ‘touchdown’ Malaysia, the ‘Bumi Bertuah’ (there I said it).
Since I’ve somehow created lil havoc and rumor among my friends and blog readers, I need to clear up this statement of ‘lamaran kedua’. Hah-ha. Oh, even Simaa has her goose-bump reading it :p thehehe ^^
Though my mother would ask me three times a day (if I’m home) these weird out-of-place questions and statements like:
1. Kak, bila nak kahwin kak? Kak Farah dah nak kahwin dah…
2. Kakak doa nak suami macam mana?
3. Jangan lupa fikir fasal kahwin
4. Mak bagi masa 3 tahun je, lepas ni, sesiapa masuk meminang mak terima je kak.
Err… The ‘lamaran kedua’ thingy has nothing to do with the marriage proposal and what not, hokey…! It’s something bigger. MUCH matters than the marriage proposal (at this very point in time, inshaALLAH). Well, actually, I was ought to go for my umrah (with my parents of course) on December last year which supposed to be my ‘lamaran pertama’ but due to some visa problems, it has to be postponed to a date agreed by all. So, there goes my ‘lamaran kedua’ when my parents and I were selected to he His guests (once again, Alhamdulillah), and inshaALLAH at a state, where He knows better than us.
Allah huAkbar, walillahilhamdh.
“If ye reject (God), truly, God hath no need of you; but He liketh not ingratitude from His servants: If ye grateful, He is pleased with you. No bearer of burdens can bear the burden of another. In the end, to your Lord is your Return, when He will tell you the truth of all that ye did (in this life). For He knoweth well all that is in (men’s) hearts” (Al-Zumar 39:7)
May He regard and consider all of our good deeds and ibadah during our time there, in His House (Baitullah) and may one fine day, I can in the other hand, bring my parents there as what they did to me. Amin, inshaALLAH.
“Our lord, accept this (service) from us; for Thou art the All-Hearing, the All-Knowing” (Al Baqarah 2: 127)
Err… the sweet sour part?
I’ve got to find some other time to write them down for now I’ve to mend something else.
inshaALLAH, soon ;)
