I cried when I found this video. They were tears of joy.
If you want the lyrics of the nasyid, it’s this one.
If you want the meaning of the nasyid, it’s this one.
I still remember the first time I heard the song. I was on duty at Expo, assisting the En-Naeem Project Team with it’s Nasi Briyani Amal booth. There I lost my wallet and handphone. As if a lecture from my mum via Ameera’s handphone was not enough, Tok wasn’t in Singapore to hear my rant and share the anger (but I could imagine his anger when I told him through the phone later on… ironically it made me feel better knowing that someone was as angry as me. Heh.).
I also cannot forget how I easily and secretly accused someone I knew, out of anger, astarghfirullahalazeem.
Alhamdulillah, I had good good friends from En-Naeem – The Tellitubbies (Wan, Ramdan, Ustaz Muhammad and Abang Rahim) and Ameera – who cheered me up and bought me food on that fateful day. Haha… And in the midst of feeling super helpless, it was then, I heard that song being played out loud from the booth that we were sharing with… and it totally calmed me down to the extent that I was stoning satu corner.
I want its MP3 format can!
Anyway, I went to Wisma Indah today…. for the second time this week (hehehe) and as I stepped into the Dewan Solat Wanita, there were some madrasah girls mengaji-ing… And masyaAllah! One of the girls had a beautiful voice. No… not like Madonna, or Beyonce. She has one of the most beautiful mengaji voices I had ever heard.
Let’s put it this way, if any of you hear the recitation of surah-surah Al-Quran from Sheikh Mishary Rashid Al-Fasy, that girl is like the female version! SubhanAllah!
Sigh… when will I ever get to learn to mengaji like that….? Suruh mengaji je suka kasi alasan… Last week, I ‘resumed’ my mengaji session with my mum… when I told her which page of the Quran I was reading…
Mum: Eh eh… dah lama tak ngaji aleh-aleh dah page tiga ratus lebih?
Me: Kenape tak leh pulak? Kadang-kadang Yana ngaji sendiri pe…
Mum: Ba, tengok Ba, anak you… Tiba-tiba je nak jump page… Abis tu ngaji brape page je kat sebelah dia ade satu botol air.
ME: Orang haus la….
Pffft. I shall spare you from the family conversation that we had afterwards ok… Heh. Bottomline is, mengaji with someone beats mengaji alone, because when you mengaji alone, you might not be aware of your own mistakes while reciting.
Am thinking of going back to Wisma Indah tomorrow perhaps. Hehe… Nak ikut?
