Before i went back to Kelantan, i spent a night at my uncle's in Putrajaya. he has 2 daughters. both are cute, healthy and very naughty (biasa la kids). when we were watching TV, the youngest aged about 4 yo kept on asking me, her abah and mama for permission to sleep with me that night. imagine, every time the show stopped for the ads, she would say, "malam ni adik tido ngan kak yan tau!" then, her kakak aged 7 yo "kakak pun nak tido ngan kak yan. adik tido la ngan mama". for two hours, i think the ads were shown more than 10 times, so they kept on bergaduh for more than ten times, repeating the same lines (and the another line was "kak yan, dah iklan, jom tido") adeh... ape la best sangat dengan sleeping with me pun tak tahu la, it's not that i will read them bedtime story or sing lullaby to them...
then, it's time to sleep. they really had quarrel with "who is going to sleep with who". both wanted to sleep with me on the same single size bed. mana la muat. my uncle helped me to settle them down, asking kakak to sleep on the other bed and she obediently did so, even though muka tak puas hati. Adik, of course la, so happy. melompat2, gathered her bantal busuks and toys to sleep with. by that time, their mom was already off to bed and their dad went out to living room to watch tv.
so, i would have adik sleeping with me. not more than ten seconds she rest her head on the pillow, suddenly she said, "kak yan, abah mana?" then i said "abah kat luar la, tengok tv". she replied "ok, adik nak g luar la. nak tido ngan abah"
adeh... headache sungguh. tadi beria... then now, after few minutes not seeing her dad, dia sibuk- sibuk pergi cari abah. i couldn't help but laughed. comel sungguh la budak ni... (^_^)
semoga membesar jadi anak- anak yang solehah ye sayang..
the next day on the bus, i couldn't help but to remember this incident. how close the relationship between a daughter with her dad. and i thought, the relationship between the slave and the Master should be greater than this. if the daughter who always has the father to tend her before sleep, couldn't sleep and quickly find him, the slave should always have the feeling of having a Master watching and tending after him for the whole day. the slave should feel the lost when he doesn't have the Master in his heart. that's what the muslimeen should always feel when he has forgotten Allah for a while in every day life, and should quickly go and find Him through many means such as prayers.
and how great Allah prepares us the 5 compulsory daily prayers (with extra offers of sunat prayers) so that we won't feel the lost.
