|Otter or memerang are among the creatures who enjoys plenty of water.|
It has been raining for three days now, non-stop. No wonder some areas in Kuantan are flooding.
Everywhere is wet. One of my colleagues said, it is just water. Yes, water dropping from the sky. But I am very sure, not many people want to get wet, unless they purposely playing in the rain (which is fun actually).
This morning, when we arrived at Aiman's kindy, there was an El-Fart parking in the middle of the porch. Walhal, the porch is big enough to fit FOUR vehicles nicely at any one time, so FOUR family can drop their kids without getting wet. If you think your El-Fart is too big pun sampai you can not rapat tepi, move forward a little bit, so that people who come after you can still securely stop under the roof behind you.
OK, rain is just water anyway, but not many want to get wet. And parents surely don't want their babies and kids to walk under the rain. For us adults, we can park even under the rain, open the door, get out and run. But with babies and kids, plus their bags and what not, you just can't do that. It will take a bit more time, which by then you will already wet. Yes, you might say use your umbrella. Then I could say, why have a porch if you still want the umbrella? Further, in a heavy rain, an umbrella is quite useless. Use you brain lah sir.
After sending the kids, we went to another building as mama aiman wanted to take her 1Malaysia book voucher. Again, there was a car parking close to the entrance, leaving a space only a brave enough kancil can slip through. Only this time there was no porch.
It seems like the rain is making some people selfish, and a selfish person is a test to others. This is why Sabr or patience is one of the most important characteristics of a Muslim, Mu'min, Muttaqin.
يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا اسْتَعِينُوا بِالصَّبْرِ وَالصَّلَاةِ ۚ إِنَّ اللَّـهَ مَعَ الصَّابِرِينَ
O you who have believed, seek help through patience and prayer.
Indeed, Allah is with the patient.
:: Another test that needs sabr is to wake up in a cold morning while it was raining outside. Sedap tarik selimut tuu...
