her name is Nur ‘Ainul Mardhiyyah

“I knew people from Malaysia uses arabic names than ourselves. ” Kata Hassan, yang berasal dari Palenstin.  Terpampang peta bumi Palestin di dinding rumahnya, dapat aku lihat dari meja makan.

Katanya lagi, ” I knew someone who came from Bangladesh. He named his sons, Ahmad Islam, Nur Islam and Saiful Islam.”

“Sometimes I was ashamed that arabic people gave names to their child that didn’t have meaning at all.” Tambah Hassan lagi.

Dia terus pandang ‘ain dan bertanyakan nama ‘Ain.

”’ ‘Ain”, aku jawabkan.

“Owh.. you see, its arabic word”

“That’s the short version. You didn’t know her full name yet. Her name is Nur ‘Ainul Mardhiyyah”, kata aku lagi.

“Masha Allah.. Masha Allah!” balas Hassan kaget sebentar.

p/s; Adakala pelik dgn org bangsa arab jugak..
