Teraweh Tonight


I was excited about going for teraweh prayers again tonight. Went on the first night then had to stop for couple of days. Tau-tau je lah masalah orang perempuan ni. On the first Ramadhan night, I did my teraweh in Seremban, where the practise is to do only 10 rakaats of teraweh followed by the usual 3 rakaats of witir.

The big blue mosque in Shah Alam, however, does it differently. In fact many mosques and suraus in Selangor do 20 plus 3 of teraweh and witir respectively. "Ohhh....so lama," moan some folks. Yes, memang banyak rakaat nya but believe me tak terasa pun. When I first did all the 20+3 rakaats, berpeluh jugak. But as the saying goes, alah bisa tegal biasa.

Last night's Teraweh prayers was led by the Imam, Uztaz Mustaffa, a hafiz who recited the ayats from the holy Quran with brilliance and beauty. His lagu when reciting the ayats sounded like a lullaby calling towards full submission to God Almighty.

Ohh...syahdu nya rasa di hati....

Kay, bestnya. I do envy you dapat buat terawih kat masjid. Kalau ustaz tu baca laju then 20+3 goes by very fast and tak meletihkan. But if ustaz baca p-e-r-l-a-h-a-n p-e-r-l-a-h-a-....sampai boleh termimpi sekejap in between rakaat! Very bad kan..

Tai Tai,

Everynight, the makmum memang look forward to Ustaz Mustaffa being the Imam. He's so popular that at times he's called to become Imam at other mosques. The Shah Alam mosque has a few Imams. Most of the are young men and hafiz too. Hai...sejuk perut emak nyer bila anak nya hafiz.

Ada jugak yang s-l-o-w-a-n-d-s-t-e-a-d-y. Not just mimpi, sesat pun boleh dibuatnya. Dugaan...
