Kenapa Orang Terkejut Bila Ayah Benarkan Anak Ayah Masuk Islam?
You Chinese Muslim Ke?
Last week, my father asked if I could get him something from Carousell. I got him a deal and passed him the address for pick-up.
When he reached, the seller (a Malay Uncle) was confused because he was expecting a Malay.
“Huh? You Chinese? I thought you Malay!”
“No la, that one my daughter.”
“But your daughter wear tudung. You Chinese Muslim ah?”
“My daughter Chinese Muslim. She convert to Muslim.” (He still confuses Muslim and Islam 😂)
“Waaa! Then you let her convert? Never stop her?”
“Never la, I support!”
“Waaa, you so good ah, why you support?”
Kenapa Ayah Izinkan Saya Masuk Islam? Ini Jawapannya
My father was so tickled when he related the conversation to me. He asked me, “Why is everyone so shocked when they know I let you convert?”
“Cos you very rare la! Most parents don’t let mah. Actually pa, why did you let me convert?”
Cue wisdom mode i.e. speaks entirely in Mandarin:
“Because I understand life.
Because I understand the pursuit of happiness.
What’s the purpose of life? To seek happiness.
Different people find happiness in different things. Some in wealth, some in family, some in religion…
As parents, what do we want most? For our children to be happy.
Every religion teaches good.
If you were to tell me that this religion makes you happy, why should I stop you?”
Sometimes I feel that my father is so simple. Yet, so profound.
A lot of what he says is almost common sense; it doesn’t take a lot for anyone to come up with what he said. In fact, many would claim to hold the same beliefs!
But what I think makes my father different is how he actually truly means what he says.
If he thinks that simply, he acts simply. When push comes to shove, he does exactly what he says.
He doesn’t struggle with what society thinks, what our relatives would think, how it would mean I can’t eat his favourite BBQ with him anymore… His sole concern was really just my happiness.
Maybe that’s the reason why I always feel so much weight in his words. Because he actually means what he says.
Maybe part of wisdom is that. Being a man of your words.
