When I came home last holidays, dad seems different from usual. He kept much to himself, rarely makes joke (which one of his favourite pass time) or making conversation with his grandchildren.
Only once he talked to me, asking about the Tabligh Group. There’s one group at the mosque nearby and this person asked my dad lots of questions. He felt a bit unsecured but I assured him the Tabligh is just spreading dakwah, untuk ingat-mengingati.
That person also asked my dad how long it takes him to khatam Quran. Dia (the tabligh person) mengaku hanya ambil masa 6 bulan. So my dad showed his Quran, full of signatures (imam signed), including the dates dia khatam.
Masa mula-mula ayah ambil masa 6 bulan. Then a few years later, he took only 3 months. But the last dates, made the Tabligh man stop asking. Satu juzuk satu hari……..
No wonder Dad does’nt talk much. And he does’nt eat much either. Mungkin dia tak rasa lapar. Even during his fasting days. Dan penyakit darah tinggi, kencing manis dan ulser perutnya hilang begitu sahaja. Doktor pun hairan. Mukjizat Al-Quran, kan……..
Before we left, dad told me about his dream. Dalam mimpi tu dia berjalan di padang pasir. He saw a mosque… bercahaya tersangatlah cantik, sampai dia tak tahu nak gambarkan.
He went inside and noticed the wall , made of solid marble…. lutsinar pulak tu. Macam cermin tapi tentulah lebih indah. Ada permata-permata berbagai warna.. nilam, zambrud, sebesar pintu!
Under the floor there was running water.. like a stream. He prayed there dan sebaik sahaja selesai, dia terkejut sebab tiang-tiang masjid tu dah berubah kedudukan. Kemudian secara tiba-tiba dia ternampak seorang perempuan sedang solat… jauh di sudut masjid. Bila ayah pergi dekat, rupa-rupanya perempuan itu ialah mak!
Ayah nampak sebak. And I ….. could’nt say a word. But deep inside my heart, how I wish I could be like my mum. Always by my hubby’s side, even in his dream.
Sorry sebab bahasa jadi rojak. Begitulah berserabutnya fikiran kita sekarang ni. Err… tak perlu komen sebab kita malas nak jawab…. not feeling friendly right now.
