kisah butang baju melayu
I just returned from Tarawih prayer at Surau Ansar in my apartment. Something weird happen there.
Before Imam start the Tarawih a middle-age person approach me and handover a brand new 'butang baju melayu'. Yes this night i wear my cream colored baju melayu, the first time in this fasting month and yes i didn't put the butang on, on purpose. I was lazy to put on the butang as i was rushing to get to the 'surau'.
I was speechless, don't you if the same thing happen to you. So i took it and put in my pocket as Imam was already start the takbir. Then this guys gentle said "Pakailah..". I gave a gentle smile in reply.
Then i have to move away from him, to fill the 'saf' infront. In between the Tarawih i took out one butang and put on.
Before i left the surau i met think guy and shake hand with him as a sign of thank you.
The weird of this story is, how many people went to pray with additional 'butang baju melayu' in their pocket, and then give it away to people who are lazy enough to put one on?
I'm still in shock.
