Be anti-social and NOT attend these open-houses:
first raya: Tokmi's house from after solat sunat aidilfitri til lunch
There were not many dry eyes during the supplication part of the khutbah where the good Imam pleaded " Ya Allah, kami banyak berdosa terhadap ibu-bapa kami Ya Allah, kami banyak berdosa terhadap ibu-bapa kami Ya Allah, Kau ampunilah dosa-dosa kami terhadap ibu-bapa kami Ya Allah, Kau ampunilah dosa-dosa kami terhadap ibu-bapa kami Ya Allah" . His voice broke "Ya Allah Kau perhatikan amalan kami Ya Allah, Kau perhatikan amalan kami Ya Allah" followed by crying and incoherent pleading..... until the bilal interjected with the takbir. It was heart-wrenching. He was the Imam no less, always at the masjid leading prayers, organising tazkirahs, taddarus, qiamullails, gotong royongs, etc - and I thought, "here I am, a nobody with a heart of stone - pleading nothing with that much sincerity"...
