what an EMBARASSING .......??!?...


Awas Kecurian’ – literally translates ‘theft alert’; the notice board actually reminds visitors to lock their car, also not to leave their valuables inside their car and the Masjid shall not be liable for any unwanted circumstances.
Masjid (literally means in Arabic, a place of prostration) is a place of worship, it serves as a place where Muslims come together for prayer or صلاة‎, ṣalāt as well as a center for information, education, social, etc..
I went to this newly built Masjid Al-Hidayah, Taman Malewati last Saturday to perform Zuhur congregation. The design and appearance though is very appealing, which reflects the unity, commitment and determination of the community and the committee. After I’ve made a right turn to the spacious and well laid out car park, I saw few of this warning sign! The noble intention of the signage is to remind the people of theft. At first place, to me, the notice should not be there in the Masjid perimeter, but as much as we know, the reality is it happened! And, we the imperfect human need to be reminded from time to time, day after day……that is why, Allah swt created an-Naar or hell..!
This reminded me about my one of its kind ‘crocs’ that was stolen at Masjid As-Syakirin Bintulu, a month ago....lucky me!
