Life of a Reverted Muslim

"O believers enter into Islam completely and do not follow the footsteps of Shaitan, surely he is your clear-cut enemy. If you falter after receiving the clear-cut message, then keep in mind that Allah is Mighty, Wise. Are they waiting for Allah to come down to them in the shadow of clouds, along with the angels, and make His decision known? Ultimately all matters will be presented to Allah for decision"
(Surah Al-Baqara, Ayah 208-210)

Huh??? Chinese couple wedding in Masjid???


How can a Chinese have their wedding in Masjid? They cant even enter Masjid so how can they do that? Where is the religious officer? You look at the banner and it stated there "WELCOME TO WEDDING CEREMONY of NG KUAN BENG & GOH YEE MEI, 18 DECEMBER 2011 - MASJID UNIVERSITI PUTRA MALAYSIA"

Well I didnt lie right? In real fact Not Yet Muslim is allow & encourage to visit and enter Masjid for them to understand Islam better. What they need to do is just that wear a proper attire to respect the place of worship and InshaAllah (God Willing) you will be bring around and brief by a volunteer about Islam and function of Masjid. Ok coming back to the topic, how can a Chinese have their wedding in a Masjid?

As my previous post, is a solemnization ceremony of Brother Ng Kuan Beng & Yee Mei. Both reverted to Islam well before they knew each other and is Allah that bring them together. Islamic solemnization or Akad Nikah is very simple. We do not need a big group to bring all the gift, well if you have it then is ok but if you do not have it also ok. Is just a local culture and this couple choose the Islamic way which is simple & easy without burdening themselves and anyone. Alhamdulilah is a wise choice.. That is how simple Islam is.

Preparation for the solemnization ceremony. Me & Adam Eh (on my right) is the witness for their akad nikah.

The couple invited their family member to attend and Alhamdulilah all of them attended. Yee Mei's parents and some relative flew all the way from Sarawak for their wedding & that is the first time Kuan Beng met his future parents in law. Me & Adam Eh is the witness for their ceremony and before the start of the ceremony I have asked the Ustaz can the witness says "TAK SAH" (Not Valid) in which he replied of course yes and Kuan Beng smile while stare at me with a message "You better dont do this brother. Just say SAH even I have not finish my sentences" and I get his message.

Practicing the sentences before the real one took place (Yee Mei on left side of the photo)

I can felt the kan cheong-ness of Kuan Beng and also Yee Mei which make me kan cheong (nervous) also. Macam saya pula yang nak nikah. Nanti bini saya marah susah. Let me explain why before my wife get angry. I am nervous too because I hope everything went well and if everything went well, he automatically resume the duty of her parents to look after Yee Mei and he need to really take good care of her which I believe both of them will work hard together gether to built a happy marriages and family, InshaAllah...

SAHHHHHH......

One breath he completed his line and with One Gold Dinar, they are officially husband & wife...Allahuakbar...Alhamdulilah...

1st time holding each other hand

After they are confirm as husband and wife, Kuan Beng went over to Yee Mei and pass her the Gold Dinar and they hold each other hand for the very first time (they never touch/hold each other hand before as told by them and Islamically that is the correct way) and you can see they still feel shy but is ok because practice more will make them feel more comfortable and better and no more "shy shy Ain Valerie".....
The newly wed....Alhamdulilah....

Family photo after the ceremony.... All look happy and cheerful...

New Muslim brother with the King & Queen of the day.. Just for one day and lifetime (KB say one enough so who say Muslim man like to marry four?)
Nurul Izzah and friend with them

In the same time after the ceremony, we proceed to the hall for some refreshment and we took the opportunity to share Islam with the attendees too. In the wedding gift packs, we are giving out some flyer explaining Islam and Kuan Beng & Yee Mei knew that this is a very good platform for dawah therefore the ask us to bring some dawah material and we also distributing free books on Islam to everyone - Yes everyone including Muslim & Not Yet Muslim. I would like to suggest next time for a Muslim wedding ceremony instead of giving out cups or souvenir, we can give out some books on Islam to the audiences. You will be happy because they came and also you will get good deeds from Allah for your effort in spreading Islam. If you need volunteer to do that during your ceremony, MRM is always ready to serve Islam. Contact us..

  3. Dlm pernikahan dan walimah mereka, tiada majlis tukar cincin, kucup dahi, batal air sembahyang, cium tangan suami, bersanding, menepung tawar, berinai, hantaran berdulang dulang, pengantin perempuan tidak mekap langsung, tiada hiburan dan mc... Semua yg disebutkan itu tiada.. Yang ada hanya pemberian mahar iaitu Satu Dinar Emas dan semua hadirin diberikan buku tentang Islam secara percuma serta penerangan apa itu Islam di kaunter dakwah yg disediakan... Mudahnya Islam andai kita ikut sahaja apa yg telah ditunjukkan oleh Nabi s.a.w...

  4. "How can a Chinese have their wedding in Masjid?"
    adalah statement rasis. kalau cina, confirm Buddha ar?? confirm bukan Islam laa?? kena ingat islam bertapak kt china dulu sebelum masuk tanah melayu. memang agak offensif la kalau cina islam yg baca..

  5. Ajim_unbreakable, terima kasih atas komen saudara... tajuk post ini hanyalah satu gimik untuk menarik perhatian mereka yang belum Islam untuk turut membacanya... andai dilihat di dalam blog saya, saya seorang yang buta warna...

    seperkara lagi saya adalah Muslim & juga Cina pada masa yang sama... :-)

  6. Salam brother ajim.

    I beg to differ. A seemingly provocative opening statement may on several occasions serve as a way to entice readers to read further into the context, and allow them to digest it with wisdom.

  8. kekadang, yang kita anggap saudara baru ni lebih hebat Islamnya daripada kita yang mengaku Islam pada lidah tidak pada amalan....contoh; Dr Redhuan Tee, Kamal Koh, Ust Farid Ravi.dll...tak malukah kita yang Islam keturunan ni??

  9. Alhamdulillah dan tahniah pada pengantin baru. Untuk adik Firdaus tahniah juga. " shock, sooth then coax" sometime stay in the mind longer and Insyaalah it will show them the true path.

    ringkas erk. zaman skrg klu ikutkan hantaran majlis apa semua klu takda rm20 ribu tak lepas. sampai terpaksa loan bank nak jadi raja sehari. lepas tu jadi hamba bank. datang surat tiap2 minggu notice2x.

    tulah masyarakat kita ni xfaham. ikut sangat kebiasaan tu.benda sunnah sepatutnya tak membebankan.

  24. assalamualaikum. saudara,sy ternampak gambar kawan sy di artikel ni.gambar yg ke8. saudara stated that he is new muslim brother. betul ke? kalau betul Alhamdulillah sy sgt bersyukur. boleh sy tahu bila dia reverted?

    ReplyDelete
  25. barakallah and alhamdulillah. perhaps bring extra selendang in future so people who are yet to revert can cover themselves slightly better.

    the problem with non muslims entering a masjid here is partially caused by the Islamic departments not dissemminating the facts clearly.

    In fact i don't really see much effort except hear the favorite statement of not stirring racial sentiments or sensitive issues. whereas islam is about open debate and accepting truth based on justifications in the quran and ahadith.

  26. this is beautiful..I wish for these kind of simple marriage.. XD

  27. Assalamlekum,
    some of pics showing women hands uncovered...In Islam it is not permissible for mixing of sexes.and a women to be completely covered.i hope author must be aware ot these basic thing.and hope that it may be cause of some unavoidable situtation that women where like that in the mosque.

    I have no intention to hurt any brother/sisters feeling.just shared the knowledge abt islamic shariah.

    Allah Know Best.
