"Hello, how are you?"
I didn't want to leave Mei in the lurch days after our meeting. With Kak Nor away and busy, it's my responsibility to check up on Mei's wellbeing. To show that we care and that we are supportive.
Hence, the phone call.
"Oh, it's you. I'm not very well, I need to ask you something."
She told me that she felt something is in her house with her. She had a nightmare last night and is rather afraid. For the first time, she heard a voice in the house. My heart froze.
"Did you experience the same thing before?" she asked.
So, I told her a nightmare I had before reverting to Islam, to help calm her down. I told her to pray to Allah and ask for His help for He is Al Knowing and All Powerfu (she said she prays but not 5 times a day). And I told her that sometimes 'the evil thing' will try to cause confusion to prevent somebody like Mei from seeking the true God. I told her to ignore the strange noise.
[Now I wouldn't have taken her words seriously if I had not had a mishap the day after I met her. Alhamdulillah I'm fine, and the car suffered some light body injuries but still, it was tough, expensive and trying handling everything on my own (husband's out of town). A coincidence? For me, it's another test of patience and faith, huhuhu]
Anyway, back to Mei.. I advised her to seek the ustaz and ustazah who referred her to me in case she's still afraid, as both Kak Nor and I are unable to meet her this weekend.
"Okay, okay.. I'll call you if I need advice, ok?"
And I answered,"Sure."
What do you think?
