Saya ada satu kawan ni, dia masih belajar, tapi bukan calang-calang orang, she's a brainiac and she's studying in Australia. I dunno lah what she's studying, aku bukan jenis nak jaga tepi kain orang (malas nak ambik tau sebenarnya). Dah lah pandai, on scholarship, bertudung, ayu, how can someone not respect her la kan.
So masa bulan puasa hari tu, we were chatting like normal lah, hi howwa u semua-semua tu lah. Then our conversation came down into her whining and whining..and whining on how pahala puasa dia kurang on that day.
I asked her "why?". And she said because she had to learn about the history of gods for paganism, christianity, mayan....in her history class.
So aku macam confused, so what? Takkan tu pon kau rasa boleh hilang pahala? I thought she was joking, aku gelak lah.
Tetiba dia emo lebih-lebih pulak "I HAVE BEEN FASTING AND PRAYING ALL DAY AND THAT STUPID PROFESSOR MADE MY PAHALA PUASA KURANG!!".
I mean what the fuck?
Biar betul? Kau nak ber-emo sebab you had to learn history IN YOUR HISTORY CLASS??
It's a different case lah kalau you're in KELAS AGAMA ISLAM and tiba-tiba professor tu suruh kau renounce Islam and masuk Christianity kan. Even if that's the case pon, it's entirely up to you, if you think you're drawing closer and iman lemah, then you've only got yourself to blame.
It's not like the prof was trying to impose those beliefs on you IN YOUR HISTORY CLASS. I'm pretty sure he was TEACHING you on THE HISTORY of gods according to those beliefs.
I don't get it at what point pahala puasa kau boleh kurang? Adakah you've felt that you want to succumb to those beliefs? If yes, then why are you blaming the professor? It's you yang berimankan lemah, and you want to blame it on someone else. Grow up lah.
Even if, what made you think it's a big sin when you're learning about other religions? Are you saying that you're a big bigot? You don't want to listen/learn about other cultures/religions because you're not apart of them.
Tutup telinga and jerit "NA NA NA NA I'M RIGHT YOU'RE WRONG"
Learning about other religions and cultures doesn't necessarily deter you from what YOU BELIEVE. How is seeking knowledge a SIN??
I may not be an expert dalam rujukan agama, but at least I know that it's only a sin if you start menduakan tuhan. Syirik bukan?
Tapi kalau setakat nak meluaskan ilmu pengetahuan, takkan itu pon dosa?
I don't get you lah budak, you're bitching and whining about how pahala puasa kurang because you had to learn other religions in your class so that you can graduate and carik kerja halal, and yet, your favorite show is Gossip Girls.
Cerita cintan cintun cium sana sini party itu ini tak der pulak kau mengadu "PAHALA PUASA SAYA KURANG HARI NI".
Kalau kau rasa berdosa sangat, baik kau drop saja History class tu. Balik Malaysia belajar sekolah pondok.
Of course lah I've said to her all these sebab I think she was blowing things out of propotions.
And despite her age and education, she's still a fucking kid; refused to listen to me.
NA NA NA I'M RIGHT AND YOU'RE WRONG.
Whatever bitch, I've said what I wanted and it's up to you lah kau nak dengar ke tanak.
I no longer have the respect for you.
