Ah, L'amour

My mum recently received an invitation to her friend's daughter's wedding. It should be a really fancy-schmancy do, since the bride's parents are titled and wealthy (unfortunately I am not invited), and the invitation came in the form of a really elegant-looking set of cards. But what made me go 'awwww!' was neither the card, nor the prospect of someone getting married; it was this quote:

Rasulullah S.A.W bersabda mafhumnya:

"Manusia Hawa dijadikan daripada rusuk
manusia Adam, bukan dari kepalanya untuk
menjadi atasnya, bukan dari kakinya untuk
menjadi alasnya, malah dari sisinya untuk
menjadi teman hidupnya, dekat dengan
lengannya untuk dilindungi dan dekat
di hatinya untuk dicintai."

Talk about romantic. Who said religion is all about the do's and don'ts? Okay, fine, most of the time it is. But it's nice to see some romance, no?

Congratulations on your wedding, Anna and TJ!
I've never met either of you and you will probably never read this.. nonetheless, the sentiment is genuine!
