Life is like a painting
And I painted my life beautifully. Its a prayer, and Allah listens to those who pray.
Aidil Fitri is a day of victory. And alhamdulillah, today adik dhada completed reciting the Al Furqan. I started it at early weeks of Ramadhan, she continued until yesterday. Syukur Alhamdulillah, we completed reciting it together, and telah pun Qatam Al Quran.
I must be proud of myself. I went to uninstitutionalised classes and not too serious in learning it. The old man who taught me that time was too busy with his work at his garden, while my other friends and myself, had to be in the living room, reciting the Quran. Well, he was well-versed with it - memorised it by hard. BUT DEFINATELY NOT US. Since he was not in front of us when we recited the holy book - he didnt realised that we had our own way to make it interesting. Just like and ads on TV "bila ibu tiada dirumah, semua benda boleh dimakan" - IMAGINATION lah! Akibatnya, I became just like that old man - learned it by hard and its hard for me to READ the Quran but its easy to say it out verbally. (by hard laa tuh!)
Until there was a month of Ramadhan - as usual, I became to 'open ceremony' - adik dhada always be the 'closing ceremony'. I was reciting the Quran slowly - merangkak'ly. And I felt so sleepy..... didnt realise I fall asleep. Until in the middle of the night I woke-up and continue recite the Al Quran, but this time was so fluent!!!!!!! I didnt know what happen, but its an experience.
There was another Ramadhan, at Mak's house in JB. I was reciting the Quran, then I saw mak went upstairs, just peeping at me. Then she went down. During the day, I was asking Mak, why she didnt say anything or was she looking for something that morning. And suprising me, SHE DIDNT WENT UP THAT MORNING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! jeng jeng jeng..... siapa kah itu???? it remains a mystery.
And so on... so on... each Ramadhan had its own stories. At this entry, I just want to share a victory for what we (my sister and I) had achieved - Both of us, telah Qatam Al Quran, Ramadhan 2009!
Alhamdulillah. To all my readers, Selamat Hari Raya and Maaf Zahir Batin. Memandu dengan berhemah!
