The Lonely Moon


the moon2
I’m the lonely moon
The darkness is my bosom friend
No air
No life
No dream
Who wants to live here with me?

I’m the lonely moon
I miss the sunlight
I need his touch in the night
I need his love
To fill my heart
To change my world
To be Full Moon!
Can I realize it?!!

Back to School


Assalamu’alaikum my lovely friends!
Firstly I wanted to say, “Thank you very much for your helps. Your opinions, your suggestions, your supports and your prayers really helped me to find the ideas, so I can continue my writing.”

As I’ve said in my latest post, I just back to school for teaching as I had ever done since 2006-2012.
Here is my story!

On last June, I accompanied my son to register to Ad-Da’wah Elementary School, where I had ever taught at.
I met the headmaster of that school, friends, teachers and a few students. Alhamdulillah they welcomed me so warm and asked me to teach again.
I didn’t respond their request because I didn’t think yet about teaching. As I met the headmaster, he asked the same. I said to him that I’ll think about his offering. I still remember what he said in one meeting last July, “There is always chance for the people who have same mission and vision with us to join together with us here. Ahlan wa sahlan Mrs. Eva! We’re happy to see you here. We knew about yourself because you had ever taught my youngest daughter. And your student (his youngest daughter) has registered to Medical school. Alhamdulillah she was accepted.”

Alhamdulillah, finally I back to school. It was the great mercy from Allah, because it wasn’t easy for me to choose decision to teach. There were the amazing things I found there.

Some of my students now have elder brothers and sisters whom I had ever taught them 3 years ago. I felt that I see them in my students now. The other amazing thing, my son has known about my job today, and he won’t complain about it. His father always supports me too. Alhamdulillah for everything! 😊

Insha’Allah I’ll see my light soon and I’ll be patient for that! 😊

….”My Lord, enable me to be grateful for Your favor which You have bestowed upon me and upon my parents and to do righteousness of which You approve. And admit me by Your mercy into [the ranks of ] Your righteous servants.”
An-Naml:19

May 8 – Fairy Tale Redux


The Prompt
Re-tell a classic story in your own way

Please see the tips here!


 

I’ll re-tell a folk tale about “Kabayan and Iteung” it was a story from West Java, and I’ll try to change the story and its ending.
In original story, Kabayan was a husband of Iteung. But, in my story I’ll make Kabayan as Iteung’s brother. In original story, it told about the Kabayan’s dream when he found an egg. Kabayan was famous as a lazy man.

 

One day, Kabayan was asked by his mother to buy food to the market. Then, he asked his younger sister Iteung to accompany him to go to the market. When they were walking to the market, Iteung found an egg on the path. She was very happy then showed it to her brother.
“Kabayan, look at, I found an egg. I guess it is chicken egg. Do you want it?”

“Hey, I don’t understand how could you find it? Did you take it from our uncle’s hen house?” Kabayan had doubt about that.

“Nope! Don’t think about that, the main point I found it, might be it felt from the sky, a gold egg, he..he..”

“Give it to me! I have a great idea about it.” Kabayan received an egg from his sister.

“I’ll keep this egg and put it in the hen-house of our uncle. What do you think about it?” Kabayan asked his sister.

“I agree with you, Kabayan. From one egg, it’ll become a hen, then it will proliferate, then we’ll have a lot of hens. We’ll sell our hens and use the money to buy sheep and goats, right Kabayan?” Iteung gave her great idea.

“You’re great, my sister! Now, we have sheep and goats. I’ll become a famous shepherd and you’re a shepherdess. Yes, we’ll have much money, we can buy anything, we can help our parents. We’re great people Iteung! I’m so proud of you! Ha..ha..ha. What is your idea now?” Kabayan imagined and dreamt of his future.

“I want to sell our sheep and goats, then buy cows.” Iteung gave her opinion.

“Wow, if we have cows, we’ll drink milk every day, do you know the price of one cow?”

“I guess, it will be very expensive. Kabayan, I wanted to sell my cows, and buy Honda civic as our uncle’s car.”

Kabayan and Iteung were talking along their way to the market. It was not far from their house. Kabayan is eleven years old boy. He has a tall body and curly hair while his sister Iteung a nine years old girl has a dark skin, so the people call his sister as Iteung (black girl). But, she is sweet girl. They have same dream to be rich people, because their parents aren’t the wealthy people.

“You said, that you want to buy Civic, correct? I think it’s better for you to buy house first. Where will you park your car, if you don’t have house?” Kabayan cut Iteung’s dream.
Iteung didn’t agree with her brother, “I’ll live in your house.”

“It’s forbidden! You must buy house by yourself! I don’t want to live there with you!” Kabayan rejected his sister’s idea to live with him.

“You are stingy, Kabayan! Remember , that egg is mine, give it to me?”

“No way! It’s mine now.” Kabayan ran fast avoid his sister. He decided to go to the market by himself and left Iteung alone. He remembered that he should buy food soon.

“Wait! Kabayan, give the egg to me. That’s mine! I’ll keep by myself!” She tried to catch her brother and take the egg from her brother. But, Kabayan didn’t stop his run, he entered to the market, he ran too fast, he didn’t see around well, he was stubbed and felt. The egg was broken.

Iteung saw that her egg was broken, she was really mad at Kabayan, “You’re careless, Kabayan. You have broken my egg, you have broken my dream to buy civic. You’re stupid! I’ll tell it to Mommy!”

***

“What’s egg, dear?” their Mom asked them about egg.
Iteung told about that to her Mom completely. Her Mom heard the story well and smiled at her kids.

“Did you take the broken egg?”

“I kept it a little, Kabayan had broken it, Mom?” Iteung explained angrily.

Their Mommy took the egg and smelled it, “O dear, it has bad smell. I think, that egg was putridity. That was why the people threw it.”

Kabayan and Iteung were very shy to hear that the egg wasn’t good. They felt that they have to forget their dream to be rich people for a while. 😀

Searched The Light


السلام عليكم  ورحمة  الله  وبركاته

بارك  الله  فيكم

My Expression "Searched the light"
My Expression “Searched the light”

She walked in

life vein

She saw around

only the darkness.

Her life road

was not straight

the sharp pebbles had

blocked her journey.

She fell into the depth of misery

She crawled

to back to her path

searched the light.

Now, she can see

She can see her light

from a far

She tries to hold it so eagerly.

She hopes it’ll be

much brighter than

the sunlight

and can brightened

her path.

Dream Of Palestinian Children


Two years ago, I asked my students about their dreams.

Here are their dreams! They told me;

“I want to be a doctor!

An engineer!

I want to be a President, ha..ha!

A police!

A teacher like Ustadzah Fatma!

A journalist!

A photographer!”

“Awesome, my students! Insha’Allah your dreams will become true!” I prayed for them specially.

“Listen, my students! Have you ever heard about dreams of Palestinian Children?” I asked my student then after they talked their dreams.

“Please tell us, Ustadzah!” They asked enthusiastically.

A lot of Palestinian Children wanted to pray at Masjid Al Aqsha freely, and safely. Only that!”

They were silence for a few times, then said, “Only that, Ustadzah?”

“Yes, they missed their masjid. Allahu Akbar!! They are amazing children! They have strong faith!”

“Subhanallah! Subhanallah! They are righteous children! We’re ashamed of them. They have beautiful dreams!” said my students.

“Your duty now, study well for Allah’s pleasure! May Allah realize your dreams, ameen. Please keep them in your prayer, probably someday you can help them to free Palestine and free Masjid Al Aqsha, insha’Allah!”

“Ameen!!”

“Exalted is He who took His Servant by night from al-Masjid al-Haram to al-Masjid al-Aqsa, whose surroundings We have blessed, to show him of Our signs. Indeed, He is the Hearing, the Seeing.”  (Al-Israa:1)

*I still remember my friendship with my beautiful students. This time, they are the students in seventh grade in Junior High School. I missed them a lot.
