Assalamualaikum!!!

Whilst waiting for the kids to finish their night mengaji sessions, I could normally be found in either Giant Kota Damansara or Sunway Giza. If I were to spend time in Giant (there's J.Colah yang! :) ) , Maghrib could be performed in their surau. Tapi kalau nak pergi Giza, I would normally solat Maghrib at the Kota Damansara mosque. Last Monday, however, I decided to entertain a slightly different approach. How about tak payah je pergi any malls?

*Gasp* Could that be done?

So, I had my very early dinner at home at around 6:15pm. Sent the kids to their mengaji class and I headed to the Kota Damansara mosque for both jemaah Maghrib and jemaah Isya'. (Yeay, Dillz!) Truth be told, I have not been going to the mosque for solat berjemaah for quite some time already. This is, of course, not counting the days in the month of Ramadhan or any solat Raya. So, while the kids get to go mengaji, why don't I try to do something for myself too - untuk tambah my Amanah Saham Akhirat (ASA) , as my mom aptly says. :)

Aaaaaannyways, there was a very interesting short tazkirah in between the two prayers last Monday. The message was simple - asking for permission to enter and memberi Salam.

Assalamualaikum , ejaan orang melayu kita, which really means "Peace be Upon You".

(Picture from here )

Without going into the dalils and the hadiths here, the ustaz gave some reminders on:
  1. Asking for permission before entering a person's premise / house and giving the Salam- the emphasis ada dua. One on the permission and the second on the Salam. If the host are not up for it, we can't go to their house, tau! Orang Melayu ni suka je terjah rumah orang, patut-patutnya telephone, tanya dulu, baru datang.. :) Bila dah sampai tu, budgetlah - bagilah Salam, kan?
  2. Extending that into our own house and making it a norm for your child to knock and ask for permission to enter your room and give you the Salam and vice versa. He gave examples, what if your child entered your room when you are indecently dressed (or not dressed) . Sure malu, kan?
  3. If you sedang mencegah mungkar, tak payah la ask for permission. :) Imagine the cops asking for permission before doing their raid. Habihla lari semua penyamun.. hihihihi
Lama dah tak pergi tazkirah, usrah ni semua.. Teringat zaman kat STF. hihihihi

Anyhoots, I extended learning point number 2 to Khadra and Khaleeq during the drive back. What do you know, next day, si Khadra terus, "Assalamualaikum.." at the Master Bedroom door. Tapi pagi ni dah tak ketuk pintu balik. hihihihihihi

Side track kejap: Zatil / Yoi bila nak ajak kitorang jengok rumah korang ni? Dah masuk dua bulan dah budak-budak tu mengaji wei... hihihihihi
