Don’t you just hate people with holier than thou attitude? I was at the mosque near my house for tarawikh prayers last night and there was this Makcik sitting next to me. I think we just finished the 4th rakaat and about to go into the 5th. This Makcik stood up and started pointing her fingers to this little girl who was not praying (she looked like she was about 5 or 6 years old), sitting next to I believe was her mother (about 4 rows in front of us) and this rude Makcik started shouting,
“Hello! Hello! Kalau tak sembahyang mana boleh duduk dalam saf. Duduk kat tepi!”
She was literally shouting okay! And she kept on shouting until the little girl moved. Macam tu ke tegur budak? Main jerit “Hello! Hello!” jer? It was sooo bloody rude. I was so angry but kept my cool because the Imam had started on the 5th rakaat already. In my heart I was thinking if the little girl hadn’t moved I’m going to tell this Makcik to behave herself and cakap elok2 to the little girl. Tegur perangai buruk Makcik ni, biar dia pulak yang malu. Geram betul. After being shouted at, the little girl actually moved to the side.
Sumpah tak khusyuk aku sembahyang pasal Makcik kurang ajar ni. Why couldn’t she just go to the front and nicely and quietly tegur the little girl? Why must she embarrass the little girl together with her mother??? Seriously I don’t understand some people. Do they derive pleasure from embarrassing other people in public? Dahlah bulan puasa, supposed to be bulan you banyak sabar and cakap benda elok-elok jer. Ni tak! What do you get from doing that? Konon menegakkan Islam la. Sheesh! Yang hairannya, she was sitting 4 rows at the back from where the girl was sitting tapi mata macam helang dapat jer tengok other people’s mistake.
You can’t stop people especially mothers from coming to the mosque and bringing their kids. I understand that even mothers too nak buat pahala and amik berkat sembahyang tarawikh kat masjid during Ramadhan. It can be annoying when the kids cry especially small children crying non-stop when you’re performing your prayers but sabar jer lah. Ni kan dugaan. Mana tahu next time anak you pulak yang melalak. Not everyone has a maid they can leave their kids with.
Iskh. First day of tarawikh dah menduga kesabaran. Hopefully, I don’t get to sit with people like this in the future. Would like to have a peaceful tarawikh.
