Of Labbaikallah

td petang i went to kedai hardware ngan baby. nope. that wasnt intentional.
the truth, mommy was so upset with d freezer yang tetiba rosak n she did go to d shop tp nak baiki lmbat sgt dia...
"beli je lain mak" baby cakap.
"boleh lagi kot" mommy jawab but i guess dia pun x berapa yakin.
so they called me n asked dah berapa tahun umur fridge tu.
"umur izzudin" told them. of course i remember at time my mom stress je n izzudin baru lahir, so saya suruh my sis balik n belikan peti ais masa tu.
izzudin is 12, so mmg wajibla peti ais tu dilupuskira.
we went to kedai letrik, beli n he promised to deliver on d spot(pukul 8mlm td dia hntar), so on my way out ternampak kedai hardware.
i bought setin cat kaler putih n dua berus. while waiting tu saya nampak tulisan kat noticeboard.
"kelebihan hari Arafah" written in blue marker. besides, ada tulis tarikh 9 Djullijah..
Amboii spelling... n considering d owner is a Chinese jadi dengan tidak berinsurans saya tanya kat pekerja kaunter tu, "kenapa tulis macam tu".
He signalled to d man who was wearing a red t-shirt who was talking to other staff in Chinese.
Me: muslim?
Man: ha'a
Me: sejak bila?
Man: dah setahun kot..

Saya toleh lagi kat d lelaki yang berbaju merah tu. He is in his late thirties n somehow I could feel it wasn't easy for him to leave his former life, embraced new faith but still surrounded by people who knew him since he was born.
Must be a real challenge!

I wished I could stop n say something nice to him as a fellow Muslim.
Tapi saya rasa macam bodoh je. Giler x islamic kot..
The least I could do is, to urge my muslim friends to support his business.
So for those yang nak beli apa2 elokla g kedai hardware Wan Joo Heng, Slim River.
Show him we care:)

I read somewhere ramai je mualaf kembali keagama asal sebab susah betul nak cope dengan pressure. Macam2 yang diorang kena korbankan.
Apalah sangat kot
