baru-baru ni, saya tidak cukup duit untuk bayar sewa rumah. kerana beberapa masalah teknikal, rakan-rakan yang meminjam wang saya tidak dapat memulangkan duit saya sebelum sept 1st seperti yang di janjikan. alhamdulillah, they were responsible enough to contact my landlady themselves, and explain the situation, without me telling them to do so. alhamdulillah. 4 days after the rent was due, they paid my money, but it was on a long weekend, so 2/3 of the money was put on hold by the bank.
therefore i was short 40cad, but i paid my rent anyways(via online transfer). i sent a long email to the landlady, apologizing profusely, and promised to pay the 40cad as soon as the bank opens on tuesday, and promised that it won't happen again inshaAllah, as it has never happened before. after that, i did not at all check my email, as i was reluctant to see her reply.
the next morning, she came knocking on my door. nampak sahaja muka dia, saya terus gelabah, dan kata, oh saya ada je cash 40cad, boleh sahaja bayar yang selebihnya dengan wang tunai. dia tanya, 'did you check your email?" dia menerangkan, kerana beberapa kesilapan di pihak dia, katanya, "i can't forgive myself," dia memulangkan duit saya, dan kata, september ini, dia bagi free.
beria-ia saya menolak, dia dah sangat baik selama ni pada saya dan housemate saya. "i can't accept this,", again and again, i said. tapi dia bertegas, dan senyum sahaja. kata dia, "you are too nice atcikeh(atiqah in chinese, lol), you helped me a lot".
subhanallah, may Allah give her hidayah. i can never repay her kindness. she once baked a cake and brought my housemate and I some chinese tea when she saw aniza (my housemate) was stressed out with studies. she offered to lend me a desktop to temporarily replace my stolen laptop and gave me 100cad discount in rent when my room was broken into.
enough of her kindness. overnight, i turned from having only 84cad(80 in cash, and 4 not hold in my bank account), to *** richer. alhamdulillah. and it was really jalan keluar yang tak disangka-sangka! when I didn't receive money from my friends, i prayed that Allah give hidayah to them to fulfill their promise, but what I forgot, is, He is capable of solving it in any ways He wants to. I was solely focusing on to get my money from them, and not open to any other solutions. I kinda forgot that He is indeed powerful. astaghfirullah, astaghfirullah.
I found out later that the said friends tried really hard to pay my money, sesat sampai elmvale dah cari rumah saya, and even before that, the stuffs that came up was really out of their control. it was an ujian to us all, alhamdulillah.
