Serendipity


Serendipity means a “happy accident” or “pleasant surprise”; specifically, the accident of finding something good or useful without looking for it.  – Wikipedia

Cerita serendipity saya bermula pada suatu hari terdetik pada diri saya, setelah melihat majalah fesyen beralih kepada kawan saya dan berkata , ” Kenapa kita boleh menerima lelaki dengan seadanya, tetapi kita perlu kurus, cantik dan bermakeup untuk diterima? Kenapa perlu double-standard?”.

Soalan itu terngiang-ngiang di benak.

Saya menghadiri Konvensyen Being ME (Muslimah Empowered) pada 30 Jun lepas. Tiket dibeli atas beberapa sebab peribadi. 1. Hendak bertemu sahabat lama 2. Hendak mengambil pengalaman pergi ke konvensyen  3. Dalam usaha mahu menjadi Yes Woman kepada Maybe Girl saya sebelum ini ( keluar dari tempurung).

Secara tidak langsung saya mendapat jawapan kepada persoalan itu, dan juga beberapa persoalan diri. Izinkan saya ulas semula / quote terus kata-kata emas yang saya dapat daripada slot tersebut:

Sister Yasmeen Mogahed – ” Free from All Other Masters, Empowering Women”

” Standards of women had been of standards of men. A muslim woman has no need to degrade herself to it, to be something we are not. To please and be beautiful to men ; like being slaves to the purpose of live to attract and be displayed for men. The most honoured of you are in sight of  God.

Your value of a woman are not valued by the number of men that likes you or the size of your waist. We have been taught that we are helpless until Prince Charming comes into our lives. No prince can complete you; only Allah can.

‘ I am here but not for display and for public consumption’.

Seeking love, often just waiting..(for) hopeless romantic; the search is like a lifelong quest. A human love is not the destination. The moment you make it the destination of your worldly perfection, you will not get it.

What you seek is not the worldly possession. No matter how close to touching a mirage, you will never touch it. Completion cannot be found in anything other than God.

The thought that after the wedding, the Jannah will start is misleading; your spouse will become the painful extractors. (because) No feeling (of human) are ever constant.

Purity  of anything is found at The Source. By, for, because of Him; that is the true happiness.”

Jawapan yang tidak dicari kepada soalan yang terbuku di minda telah terjawab dalam slot pertama ini.

Dan dalam slot-slot seterusnya banyak lagi ilmu menarik dan pembuka mata yang saya telah dapat. Sangat-sangat banyak untuk dinukilkan daripada penceramah-penceramah yang hebat, maka tidak sempat untuk di ruangan ini.

Alhamdulillah. Serendipity.🙂
