One day, my friend confronted him and told him, "Hey, I am not that kind who solat jemaah. I pray, but I just don't solat jemaah, okay?"
After numerous rejected persistency, this guy decided to go to the mosque to achieve his desirable solat jemaah.
But, he has a problem with the car pulak dah...
So, my friend said, "Nak buat baik memanglah banyak dugaan. Kalau sabar, baru dapat pahala lebih-lebih lagi!"
Eh, yeke? I thought nak buat baik lah paling senang...
I asked my boyfriend, "Do you love me? Even though I'm ordinary? Even though I'm an average person?"
He answered 'Yes' to all questions.
"Even though I cantik biasa-biasa? Pandai biasa-biasa? Baik biasa-biasa? Alim biasa-biasa? Masak biasa-biasa? Kaya biasa-biasa? There's really nothing special about me, nothing extraordinary...I'm not the best in anything and I don't standout."
Truthfully, I was feeling intimidated and inferior because I am really a biasa-biasa person. I know so many other people who have better lives than me, who I thought are way more perfect than I am.
My boyfriend told me something I needed to hear, "Sayang, semua tu hak Allah."
I felt a lot better after hearing his elaboration on that. Yes, all the things that sometimes we are proud of, even our parents, husbands, wives and children, they all belong to God and to God everything and everyone is returned to.
Tak apalah walau jadi an average Jane pun.
