After subuh prayer on Sunday, I walked alone to kak Marhamah’s room which was beside my hostel. On my way to her room, I accidently bumped into 4 dogs. While keeping my eye on them, I started to walk faster and faster and acting as if I wasn’t scared. But when I turned back, I realized that they were chasing me. So I ran with all my heart hoping that I won’t get bite. My brother had told me once to throw the stones if I were chased by a dog. However it was dark n I couldn’t possibly see the existence of a stone. With all my courage, I turned and stared at the dogs especially the biggest one. Pretended to be brave, I try to chase them instead. The dogs stopped feeling weird of my action. It doesn’t even work. Actually they weren’t even scared of me. My legs started to shake to death. I stepped backwards and backwards and continue running as fast as I could till I reach kak Mar’s block. I couldn’t stop shivering. Grasping for an air I tried to calm myself, I remembered how I got chased by a dog at UK when I was in standard 1 and at Penang when I was form 4. This was my first time facing with a group of bad dogs. Hmmm…kene tarbiyah skit anjing2 ni. Dah pandai usik pelajar putri ni.
Acting as if nothing had happened, I gave salam and knocked the door. Kak Mar opened the door and invites me to come in. Since I was in a hurry, I declined her offer and took the cake that was ordered by sahibah2 UKM. I have to deliver the cakes to them before 7 o’clock. Alhamdulillah I managed to reach them before they departed from UIA.
Huh…I was forced to run that day. But with the feeling of blissful and cheery, I continue jogging on my way back to my room. This time, I didn’t sense the present of the dog. In high spirits, I read al-ma’thurat and began studying for economic subject. My test 2 will be on this coming Tuesday night. At the same time I have to finish my assignments and study for the quizzes. Plus, there are some preparations I have to make for the forthcoming program. Till then…see you. I miss MARIA. Calling for you…..huhu…...
O Allah! Make me posses a TONGUE that is constantly in remembrance of You, a HEART that is filled with gratitude towards You and a BODY that is full of humility and suppleness in obeying You O Allah. O Allah, You are my Lord. You have created me and I am your slave. I seek refuge in You from the evil of what I have done and I confess to You my sins. So forgive me, for none is there to forgive sins but You.
*Supple, verb = flexible and elastic, moving easily, adaptable and responsive in grappling with problems
