Don't Be Mad

Imagine this:

You live in an apartment, and there are only 4 houses that the residents are Muslims. Two of the houses is in third floor, and another two in fifth floor. You live in the third floor, and the other house in third floor is selected to be the surau. Everyone will perform the Solat together on Maghrib and Isha'.

One of your friend, let's call him A, that live in fifth floor always come to your room and invites you to come to the surau to solat together. But your other friends in the fifth floor rarely, if not never, came to the surau, even A's house mate. What will you feel?

I know this sound absurd, but I always feel uneasy whenever A come to my room to invite us. Not that the fact that he always invited us is the problem, but I always keep thinking "Why didn't you invite you house mates? You always invited us though" I know I shouldn't get mad to anyone, but I can't contain my own feeling.

So I decided that I tell him straight, at least I won't breed more anger toward him, and I want to know what really happened in reality. I know the outcome already, but sometimes we just want to witness it ourselves. I know it is not his fault in the beginning that his house mates never come, but I just want to hear it from himself. Now that I had known the truth, I feel better.

But I'm not going to change my direction of hatred towards his house mates, it will be very unethical of me. I just hope that you will know what is your mistake.

I just want to say that if have problems with someone, especially your close friends in this case, settle it with them. Don't choose the easy way by running away. It is very disgraceful, especially if you choose to tell others instead of telling that person that you have problems with.

Sorry Raja that I had this uneasy feeling towards you before.

New College Life In UKM

After intentionally abandoning my blog for around 6 weeks, I think it's about time I write something about what is currently happening in my life.

Since the last time I updated, I haven't done anything much. I met some of my friends, and mostly spent my time with my families and explaining to every single one of them about "why" am I not returning to the States. Most of the them accept the fact easily and told me to be strong, work hard in the future and don't make the same mistake (which usually just simplified to "don't play games too much")

Being Different Is Lonely

From our ages, I know that I am different from most of my classmates. Naturally, most of them are three years younger than me, but that is not the problem. In fact, I had the most fun surrounded by them. They don't treat me differently just because I'm older. I think I am blessed with the fact that there are others who are older than the average (those who were born in 1993) in the batch.
I think I am not as matured as someone of my age should. But then again, there's no guideline on how matured a person should be or how you to be a mature person. Though my guidelines are basically these two: when you can prioritize and you can be responsible towards your actions. I don't know if I have these two qualities, but I know I am working towards it, slowly but surely.
Anyway, being older doesn't make me automatically different from the others. But there are certain things that make me feel.. different, and sometimes isolated. Like at this moment of writing, I am overwhelm…

Death in the Community

All of my housemates returned to their parents' house this weekend since we have public holiday on Monday. I stayed because my mother is not home and I have exam on Tuesday.

I don't mind being alone (isn't it weird for an attention seeker?), but it is too quiet in the house so I went to the nearest surau for Zuhur prayer. To my surprise, there were a lot of people there, and the main prayer room is full, compared to the usual only 3-4 rows of jemaah.

The prayer went as usual, and I think I had more peace being surrounded by people (hoho). After the prayer, the imam announced that we will be making a prayer for the recently deceased (solat jenazah). No wonder there are a lot of people.

Looking at the scene, I can't help but remember the day when my father passed away. His body was carried from Kluang, Johor to Shah Alam, and brought to a surau nearby for solat jenazah. Today's event reminded me that a community is very important for our well-being. Just imagine, ran…
