Cerita tentang dia 3 [Soalan 3]

Sambungan Cerita tentang dia 1 dan 2 [Sile bace 2 post sebelum ini untuk mendapat maklumat awal cerita ini]

‘Well.. okay... let me tell you my story. Yea.. I was born in a Muslim family.. my mom and dad both are Muslims. And.. I was brought up in Islamic family culture.. Everything should be always according to the teaching of Islam. Thank God for that. Anyway.. the specialty about my parents are.. They always encouraged us not to just ‘follow’ the Islamic teaching... but also to understand deeply the teaching or the belief that you are following at... so that.. we will become Muslims who choose to practise the Islamic beliefs, not just blindly follow.. My parents don’t ever want us to be Muslims or to practise Islam just because of them or some kind of family tradition. This somehow made me opened to learn and to study in-depth about my religion as well as others.’

‘Oh, that’s good..’

‘Well.. I started to be serious about the religion matters when I was about sixteen years old.. especially when my dad passed away.. and I was there.. near to him.. seeing him to be buried... really.. in real.... So... I started to really think... especially about the day of Judgement and the Judge on the day of judgement.. which we’ve talked about it just now...’

‘Well, yup.. I believe in ALLAH... the only one GOD to be that Judge on that day of Judgement. But.. I don’t want to just believe that.. without being strongly convinced enough...’

‘Oh yea.. I like that point...! You’ve got to be convinced in order to strongly believe in something.’

Aku tersenyum melihat dia menyampuk dengan penuh semangat.

‘Yup.. so what I did was.... I asked myself... what kind of JUDGE I expect on that day of Judgement... or.. basically... Who can I expect to be the GOD... cause.. of course.... the JUDGE must be the GOD.. no others can be... cause GOD.. must.. oh.. well.... what are the criteria that we could expect in GOD, Karla?

‘Oh... I don’t know.. Maryam..’

‘Try one...’

‘Most Powerful may be..?’

‘Yup.. great.... I want my GOD to be THE MOST POWERFUL GOD... no others EVER SIMILAR like HIM in HIS POWER... cannot be BORN... cannot EVER REST... Always always be there.......... for me to call HIM in anytime in anywhere... in other words, I DON’T WANT GOD to have ANY HUMAN LIMITATION...!’

‘Yes, that’s made sense! I want that to be in a GOD as well...’

‘So.. honestly... after I have studied others religion... absolutely... I can’t accept others’ description about their GODS... because... you know.... they said... the GOD rest (check it out in the BIBLE) the GOD called for help (in Hindus as well as in Christianity).... and, the GODS are born.... from a woman womb.....and also can give birth??? Oh.............. I absolutely cannot accept those points of views...... honestly....’

‘But... I don’t know... May be you can, Karla?’

Dia tercengang, wajahnya berkerut. Tak lama kemudian, dia menggeleng-gelengkan kepalanya.

‘No.. cannot... GOD must be special; no others should be similar like HIM or that entity...’

Aku tersenyum. Alhamdulillah. Meskipun dia agak 'confuse' untuk menggunakan ganti nama apa untuk TUHANnya.. tapi, insya-allah... amat kelihatan di wajahnya, dia faham... dia faham tentang SATU KUASA itu... dan ciri-ciri-Nya...

‘Okay, well.. second thing that I want my GOD to be is..... HE is the ONLY ONE that no others can be SIMILAR like HIM in anyway all the time. In other words... I don’t my GOD to be like HUMAN look... like Jesus...... or Buddha.... or the Hindus Gods.............. For me, GOD cannot be like that.......... can NEVER be like that........... cause............ GOD should be so SPECIAL........ NOTHING others SIMILAR like HIM.... HE is the GREATEST...... He creates HUMANKIND.. WHY should HE has the same look like HUMAN??? NEVER.. EVER....!!’

‘I rather not to SEE HIM now... because HE IS SO SPECIAL.... my human EYES can NEVER see HIM.... but.... HE is always THERE....’

‘What about you, Karla? You can agree me not... It’s just what I personally expect my GOD to be.’

Sekali lagi, dia tercengang dan wajahnya berkerut. Kali ini, dia segera menggeleng-gelengkan kepalanya.

‘No.. cannot...’

Sambil mengangguk-angguk;

‘Yet, I totally agree with you... it’s just make sense that GOD must not be in human look... yea... I agree with that, Maryam..... I do agree....’

‘Okay, KARLA.. basically.... the third thing I want my GOD to have is HE IS ONE. No OTHERS. Because HE is the MOST POWERFUL.. HE needs NO ONE.............. to be with HIM....... and He ALONE administrate the WHOLE WORLD.. including my personal life... as well as each and every human kind... HE is EVERYTHING....... MOST GRACIOUS.. MOST COMPASSIONATE... MOST POWERFUL.. MOST.. or ALL-KNOWING............... which means I need not to tell HIM what I feel.. cause HE KNOWS everything about me......... HE is THE ONLY ONE that I SEEK in anytime.. in everywhere.. I don’t want to be CONFUSED... I just want ONE and ONLY GOD who has Every BEST ELEMENTS with HIM...’

‘Would you agree with me, Karla? You definitely can disagree if you want... no problem at all..’

‘No.. I agree.. I totally agree...’

Dia diam, dan memandang ke hadapan... seakan merenung jauh.

‘Everything you’ve said is just made sense to me........ why should I deny.....’

‘And.. Of course... Karla.. I should say that..... all those criteria of GOD... just fit ONE GOD... the GOD or the Judge that has been well-described in the ISLAMIC teaching.......ALLAH (All praises be to HIM only).’

‘Indeed, HE is ONE. He describes HIMSLEF as the ONLY GOD... No one can see HIM as He is SIMILAR to Nothing.............. NEVER be BORN and what more to give birth. NEVER REST and NEVER has any HUMAN LIMITATION... HE is the GREATEST... HE is THE ONE.’

Dia mengangguk-ngangguk. Dia hanya diam dan merenung jauh.

Sungguh, Hanya Allah Maha Tahu aku ingin sekali meneruskan diskusi ini. Ingin sekali aku membukakan padanya lagi kitab suci Al-Quran untuk dia melihat betapa ALLAH menceritakan siapa DIA dengan Jelas dan Terang sekali.

Tetapi masa begitu mencemburui. Saya tidak mahu dia terlewat dek kerana saya, dan kerana belajar tentang ‘agama’. Saya beriman bahawa Islam sukakan disiplin dan Islam sukakan kejujuran, maka saya segera berkata;

‘Karla.. I would like to tell you more... and I know you want me to do so, don’t you?’

‘Yes, absolutely... I want to know more.. Maryam....’

But, Karla.. it’s time. You need to go to your class, don’t you?’

‘Oh..... yea... I forgot about it at all......!!’

‘Yea... I know... I’m sorry, dear... taking your time..’

‘Oh no.. it’s okay...... Oh Maryam.. I want to know more... I want to....’

‘Well, we will continue if you want.... I’m more than happy to do so.....’

‘Okay.. I will...’

‘Oh yea.. before you go... I want to give you this verse... you might ask you Omanis friends what does it mean........’

‘Oh, that’s great....!!’

Aku pun menuliskannya ayat Surah Al-mukminun, ayat 115 dan 116 dalam bahasa Arab yang maksudnya;

‘Maka apakah kamu mengira, bahawa sesungguhnya Kami menciptakan kamu secara main-main (saja), dan bahawa kamu tidak akan dikembalikan kepada Kami? Maka Maha Tinggi Allah, Raja yang sebenarnya: tidak ada Tuhan selain Dia. Tuhan (yang mempunyai ‘arasy yang mulia.’
