Terikat dengan Masjid
Living near to Masjid Perumahan Batan Indah Serpong (Dzarratul Muthmainnah) makes me wondering over and over again about how Allah sets my life wonderfully. It just reminds me on how Allah makes most of my residences were that close to Masjid. And how wonderful Masjid Batan indah serpong makes me thinking on how to create such a wonderful system like that. I will explain later
I spent my life living with my family who live very close to our precious masjid, Masjid Al Jihad, until I finished my senior high school. Afterwards, as you know how much I love Masjid Salman ITB that was the place where I found myself and what kind of person I wanna be. Five years I have been there.. tarbiyah and such. Until I move out to Etos dormitory as a supervisor.
Working in BPPT is other wonderful thing. My home was not close to masjid, but really love Masjid Baitul Ihsan, and Masjid Iqra-BPPT where I can find those wonderful people who dedicated their lives to serving people (in science and knowledge).
2014, I moved to Pullman, Washington State, US. For the first year, my apartment was only 10 minutes walking distance to Pullman Islamic Center. Been able to participate in the Sunday science class for kids there were another precious experience that I have.
And now, 2016, takdir and rahmat Allah I am able to live so close to one of the wonderful masjid that never stops making me so dazzled every day. People are so tied to masjid to the point that you can see the parking lot in Shubuh time is sooo full of vehicles people use to go to the masjid to perform Shubuh prayer. I have never seen something like that before in my life, where almost 300ish people are coming for shubuh. I am becoming so optimist and so amazed at the same time. This masjid’s presence is something that people there treasure a lot. And in the deepest of my heart I am always thinking on how some people can do that. I mean the people who have been the real initiator to make the people in Perumahan Batan Indah Serpong are so attached to the masjid. I guess, it must be a lot of effort and struggling to create such a thing.
Ah, I only hope, my life next can also be blessed by the closeness of my body and heart to a masjid. It would be wonderful insyaallah.. wanna be an initiator if there is no such a system yet ..
