Kawan yang macam mana?

During my schooldays, everytime before left home for hostel, my parents never failed reminding me to choose friend wisely. They said "Kawan ada macam2. Ada yang setakat jumpa kat jalan. Ada yang boleh di jemput ke rumah dan ada yang lebih dipercayai boleh dibenarkan masuk sampai ke bilik".

I m sure every parents in their right mind would have instil the same values to their children.

As a person, we unconsciously categorised our friends. There is kenalan just to say hai once a while, teman for company when u feel lonely, kawan spend time with you to do things and there is sahabat who be with you through thick and thin, share your happiness, lift u up when u fall down, cheer u up when u down, die for you when they have too.

Last year I learnt a new thing from Pak Wan while accompanying Kak Sal to the primary school nearby. Pak Wan is the headmaster.

He said the different between friendships with our fellow brother/sister and kafirun is " sesama islam persahabatan sampai ke qalbu. sekali orang buat baik pada kita, sampai mati kita terhutang budi sebab kita yakin Dia akan balas setiap perbuatan kita di dunia. Kita buat baik bukan ada udang sebalik mee tapi kita nak keredhaan Allah. kafirun pulak, they be nice to us sebab nak dapat balasan selalunya material la. For exmple toke kedai kemain mesra ngan kita coz we r customer.. "..

Well.. bab kafirun tu mungkin saya kurang setuju sikit. I do have a few non muslim friends yang saya suka dan sangat baik.. a few? what do you expect from some yang sekolah melayu, duk kat perkampungan melayu dan keje kat kampung melayu like me?...

Make short I believe, kalaupun kita x mampu balas setiap budi baik orang kepada kita, the least we can do is, be nice to them.

Ehemmm.. I just knew Ms X complained about Kak Zah dalam meeting. Ulyan's term was "Berbaloh nge Kok Zah hok dale meteng ari tu gak". I wasnt there so I do not know the details.

But then, I strongly feel that apa yg dia bising2 tu was not Kak Zah's fault. Takat jaga students solat apa sangat nak berkiranya? Solat tu.... Besides, masa dia susah2 dulu, be it masalah rumahtangga, bab kena pulau ngan kawan, or bab masalah anak-anak, Kak Zah was the only one who helped her out.

I pitied her.. Misti mak dia x ajar masa kecik2 dulu...
