One day, there was a chinese uncle knocked on the office's door.
I went to ask him whether he want to give letter or request to meet officer. When I was approaching door I noticed he is wearing a kopiah. Oppss.. He is chinese muslim !!
He asked me the same question :" Erhh... Are you chinese?"
I spent some time to chat with him and look at his IC and Kad Islam, Nur Islam Bin Abdullah (Not real name but he don't have family name either). He embrace Islam at age 30, and now he is 47 already. Out of curious I was asking question to know more about him.
"Jadi Uncle tahu apa-apa tentang Islam tak? Saya teringin nak tahu.."
"Hehe.. Sebenarnya Uncle pun tak tahu banyak sangat pasal agama.. Tapi setiap hari jumaat uncle ada pergi itu masjid oh... Pergi sana sembahyang."
"Uncle sangat memerlukan duit untuk balik kelantan buat business masak-masak. Tapi uncle tak de duit beli tiket bus, uncle sudah 3 hari merata tempat minta sedekah tapi cukup-cukup untuk makan sahaja. Masih tiada duit balik kelantan."
"Ye ke.. Uncle nak berapa duit untuk balik sana?"
"Tak banyak, dua ratus saja...."
"Haiyah.. Saya ada pergi Pejabat Agama tadi, mereka marah saya teruk sangat oh !!! Uncle pun rasa malu saja kena marah itu macam. Jadi Uncle pun merata tempat merayu sedekah untuk balik kelantan, sekarang uncle tidur kat tepi jalan tiap-tiap malam."
"Kalao dua ratus saya tak de lah.."
"Tak pe, seratus pun boleh !!"
"Tapi kalao uncle betul-betul nak pertolongan dari Pejabat Agama, saya pun kenal pegawai kat situ. Mungkin dia boleh membantu uncle?"
"Tak mahu tak mahu! Saya takkan pergi ke sana lagi!" He was shouting at me.
Later on, I let him enter my office and ask sedekah from my colleagues. RM1, RM 10.. The amounts that given to him. Me myself given him RM20. He given me a no. handphone and say thanks to me. After that I never seen him anymore, no matter on the street or nearby Pejabat Agama.
Was he lying to me or he really needed some help to go back Kelantan continue his small business as cooker? If he telling truth then why he so refused when I was wanted to bring him meet somebody at Pejabat Agama?
In a matter of fact, I don't know.
I can't detect who is telling truth or lies.
If I am criticize him as lying to me but actually he is not, then I am doing fitnah.
If I am insist that he is telling truth but he was lying, then I also giving wrong statement.
The final solution for me is berprasangka baik and given him sedekah.
If he really needed help then I get Pahala, If he was lying then let Allah SWT to judge about it at akhirat.
