My non-Muslim Friend

My educated driving teacher, who known as Nan, an Indian is driving me home after I finished my Theory and Practical Class for D class (car). Well, we talked a lot... But I want to highlight a couple of things in that conversation

Nan : U tau.. Nenek saya meninggal Isnin lepas tau.. Umur dia sudah satu ratus lebih dah..
Me : Wow.. Hebat tol.. Lebih seratus..
Nan : Tu la.. Tapi, u tau.. dia tu umur seratus lebih, pasal dia ade bela 'benda' tau.. Dulu pernah sekali, dia tanam 1 je padi waktu malam.. Esok nya, bangun pagi saja, satu bendang sudah siap.. Apa lagi, 'benda' itu la yang tolong buat..
Me : Huish.. Biar betul..
Nan : Waktu hari saya datang melawat dia, sebelum dia meninggal, memang takut la tengok dia.. Badan dah kurus kering, dah terlantar atas katil.. Memang macam mayat bernyawa tau.. Saya tengok pun saya sudah undur-undur ke belakang.. Ye la, benda tu nak cari pewaris.. Nenek saya nak turunkan pada sapa?? Semua x mahu..
Me : Abis, apa korang semua buat pada dia?
Nan : Owh, apa lagi.. Kita orang panggil ustaz.. Bagi mengaji ayat Al-Quran.. U tau, ustaz tu masuk saja rumah, nenek menjerit-jerit suruh halau ustaz tu balik.. Tapi, kita orang x buat pun.. Ustaz tu buat la macam-macam.. Baca-baca ayat al-Quran.. 'Benda-benda' macam ni memang boleh kalah.. Kalau hal-hal macam ni, ustaz je boleh setel tau??
Me : So, setel, 'benda' tu letak dalam botol ek? Nampak x pape dalam botol tu??
Nan : X.. tapi nampak asap putih-puith je.. Dah campak dalam laut dah.. Itula orang tua-tua pesan, kalau pergi laut, dapat botol bertutup, jangan sesekali buka.. Nanti benda tu terlepas, ikut u balik rumah.. Bahaya tau..
Me : ................

Well? Notice something? Okay okay.. I'll tell ya guys.. Do know realise that, non-Muslim people like Nan, is actually already knew the power of Al-Quran.. Read what he said, Ustaz tu buat la macam-macam.. Baca-baca ayat al-Quran.. 'Benda-benda' macam ni memang boleh kalah..

He knows that Al-Quran's words can defeat that kind of 'things'.. He knosw the truth of Al-Quran's power.. But, the prolem is, he did not approve of the Al-Mighty of Allah.. Many people are like this.. They know the power of Al-Quran, but could not accept the Islam..

In a nutshell, let's us prepare ourself for 'dakwah' and be ready to talk about Islam to non-Muslim.. Many of them need help in searching for the truth..

"Actually, the Sun gives out it's light to everyone on this planet.. It's just only the cloud that blocked its path.. So, our task is to direct these people to a place where it's experienced direct sunlight.. But if you are great enough, you will actually be able to move the cloud.."

    just as when it comes to forbidding of alcoholic drinks.. rasulullah (PBUH) did not say it sraightly.. but slowly, he forbid it..

  3. He knew that Al-Quran's words can defeat that kind of 'things'.. He knew the truth of Al-Quran's power.. But, the prolem is, he did not approve the Al-Mighty of Allah.. Many people are like this.. They know the power of Al-Quran, but could not accept the Islam..

    In a nutshell, let's us prepared ourself for 'dakwah' and be ready to talk about Islam to non-Muslim.. Many of them needs help in searching for the truth..

    1. He knows - if you use he knew, it means that he knew about it in the past, but no longer now. SO use present tense to show that he still knows until now. It is different if we say 'he said' because 'he said' only at that particular time, so the event has ended.

    2. He did not approve of the Almighty Allah - 'to approve of' means to agree or to believe that. While 'to approve' means that 'meluluskan'

    3. Can not accept Islam - the explanation is the same as in no 1. If we say 'he could not' it means that in the past, he could not accept Islam but now he has accepted it. Use present tense to show that he still can not accept Islam i.e. the event has not stopped until today

    4. Let us prepare - either use let's prepare or let us prepare. And do not use 'prepared', as this can only arise when we have the verb 'to be' before the word. For example, 'be prepared'.

    Be prepared - bersedia
    Prepare ourselves - sediakan diri

    5. Many of them need help - Many is plural, so there is no need to put 's' after 'need'

    That is all for today.

    Good day!

About Me

A few years ago, just like any typical SPM leavers, I jumped into an engineering field, thinking that it would suit me well, as I love Physics so much. However, due to my deep passion and intention to understand human mind and behaviour, I continued my journey into Bsc in Psychology at University of Nottingham. More About Me →
