Don’t think not not if you read this title.
This feel is very common for human being.
Second Friday in June, 2012.
I was examined by Jusuf in speaking. He’s a native from US, but he has lived in Bandung for 12 years, it’s long enough. He’s very tall for Indonesian, but common for “bule” and handsome enough (makes me glad to see him), but his nose is very pointed, funny for Indonesian.
He’s not like other examiners, who are always prepare many question cards for the participants, that’s why it benefits me as a participant, (hehe….. sometimes it can make me as the winner before the fight).
I was the last one who examined by him, after five friends before. As usual, intoducing my self and told a little story about my further studying, he offered me “well, you can ask me anything you want to know, about me, my family or about US”
So I asked him (it’s a strategy to get good band score without speaking, hehe…)“ Okay pak, I know you’re muallaf and someone told me, that, the freedom to learn Islamic subjects in US is not well as Europe and Australia, is it true?”
His answers was so basic and global, every country had drawbacks related to this problem, and should be support each other.
Moreover, he told about taliban, FPI, and bla…bla…bla…. Until he told “You know, we were born because of Allah’s love, If Allah doesn’t love you, you will never born”
I just quiet and smile…..love….????
He continued, “ Like your children, you must be love them whatever they are. He never wants to destroy you.”
This exciting conversation was stopped by the time, because the room will be used by next lecturer.
Beside the stairs we continued the discussion , he showed me his family picture. Nice family.
We talked about plan of our weekend, he will go to Tangkuban Prahu with his son by trail and I told him will go to Ciater with friends…… “okay nice to talk with you, see u, enjoy your weekend…!!!!” He finished our talking.
And then I went home, I thougt about L O V E, so deep “We were born because of Love Of Allah”
Truly, as long as I live, I thought Allah is the place we can beg anything, we can ask anything, begging solution of our problems, but not for love.
Love is abstract thing.
It is can be felt in heart only, not logical things.
With love we can live now, because love makes a hope, makes a spirit…..
Human being feels respected and appreciated if someone else loves him/her, is it right?
So…., if Allah loves me, I should know Him, etc..etc…etc….and… l o v e Him…..too
What about you…?????
