In shaa Allah ( if God’s will)
Tabada, Mary Angelica (AnGie)
I was mesmerized by the trees and the grass outside the window, thinking "how beautiful God's creation is". The sunshine and the swaying leaves make me feel bright while listening to the wind passing by. Someone pokes me and called me by name, saying “Raven have you eat lunch?”, it’s Enn my best friend. She's shorter than me, has a short black ponytailed hair and a big round eyes, cute nose and a small pink lips, while I'm 5.2, has a small reddish lips and a cute nose, not too round eyes and long black hair. I nodded to her, and looking back outside the window and I saw a girl under the tree, wearing a grey hijab and a black eyeglasses.
"Good Afternoon class", our instructor just arrived and started the class, I look back in the window, the girl with the hijab was gone, and makes me think "how amazing, her faith was?, even the weather is too hot, she is still wearing hijab".
10 minutes later
“Okay class, I will introduce to you our new transfer student from ITC-Univeristy, come in (waving to the student outside the door)". When the student comes in, I see her in slow motion, and I was shocked knowing that, the girl with the hijab is my new classmate. I feel weird when I saw her, and I don't know what it was, I just feel something weird. She starts talking “Hi everyone I’m Rina Go”.
She’s so pretty, and I bet she is taller than me. I can’t stop staring her, and she went to her chair in the last row and I noticed, no one tries to talk to her.
“krrrrinnngg, kringggggg” the bell is ringing, the class has already ended, while I’m packing my things I look back to where Rina seated, but she’s already left the room. “Raven, what’s wrong with you today?, you’re acting weird lately” Enn asked me. “Nothing, I have many things in mind”. I replied with a smile. We went out and I saw Rina walking alone, I tried to approach her, but suddenly a friend of mine Vie came out of nowhere. “Hey Raven, do you have spare time today?” Vie asked, “ahmm, unfortunately no, I still need to attend the prayer meeting”, “ohwww, I forgot, it’s Monday ahahahahah, so you heading to the prayer room?”, “Yeah” I replied, “okay then go ahead, I will tell Enn”. Vie Anne has the same height with Enn and she has a short brownish hair, with a bangs, her eyes were squinty and she has a sweet smile.
I went to the prayer room and started the session, when I was praying, there is something bothers me, I say to God “ Lord, I don’t know what I’m feeling right now, guide me O God for I am in need”.
The prayer meeting has ended, and we headed home. I didn’t eat my dinner, I went to my room as I arrived home, and still thinking what I felt lately. I prayed “O God whatever this feeling is, I will stay obedient, as I sleep tonight give me vision of what you are trying to tell me”.
The next day
(in my dream)
“There’s a woman wearing a wedding dress and she walks in the Isle, went to her man, and when I look to the guy he was wearing a taqiyah, and the guy was familiar, and I know him”
I woked up and thinking “Lord? What does that means?, is that guy will be something to do with me? Is he what you want for me?”.
an hour later, in school
“Class, find a pair because we have an activity to make, you must enterpret the song I will let you hear and then draw it. Okay give me a second”. Enn and Vie went to me, “ Raven who will you choose to be your partner? Me or Enn?” Vie asked me. “ahmmm”, I look to Rina and thinking ”does she have a pair?”. I faced Vie and said “ahmm you two can be a pair, I will find my pair, don’t worry, it’s just easy”. “ are you sure?” Enn asked. “yeah”. I went to Rina and talked to her, “Do you have a pair?”, “ahmm no” she replied and smiled,”how about you?” she added ,”ahmm no, ehehe is it okay to be your partner?” . “yeah, I would love to”.
Sinced I approached Rina, we became close and we get along, she became part of the group, and we talked a lot, we have many things in common. Every lunch break we go together for lunch and we talk about our fate. And then we go deeper and deeper, until I feel that the Lord is saying something. As soon as the class ended I went home and search about Islam, I learned a lot about they’re religion, then because of it I started to get interested to it.
I chatted Rina and ask her many stuffs about what she know about Islam. And she send me a link of an Arabic song, and I like the meaning, I saved it and let it play the whole time.
She introduced her friend Jaida to me, a Muslim too, and we get along well. “why are you so kind to us Muslims?” Jaida chatted me. I wanted to tell her why but I think I’m not ready to explain it to her, so I said to her that “ I will explain it to you tomorrow” ,” okay , if it’s too personal, it’s okay that you won’t tell me”. “okay eheheh”. Our conversation end there. I questioned myself, I am Christian and I have’nt able to fullfil my promise to my God. I already shared my secret to Enn and Vie, and I also want Jaida and Rina know about it.
