It was around 8.00pm almost nearing to the exit when i saw 3 men stopped their vehicle at an emergency lane. They didn't put on the hazard light instead they parked and walked towards the emergency exit door. Now why on earth do you need to go thru the emergency door? Those doors are really really for EMERGENCY! You know you use it, if there's flood / fire in the tunnel. Its like a one way ticket for you to escape. I was barely moving at 10km per hour so they won't get rammed by any moving cars. Plus they're not wearing any worker's maintenance attire. Then it hit me...are they going to place a bomb? Mampos aku! I know you think its nonsense but i couldn't help it. With what they are wearing, somehow at the back of my mind it came across that way. "Serban yang siap pyramid tajam macam style pak pak Arab la".
Now i can see how the western media slowly planted the 'suspicious' seed in people's mind about muslims. Me, being a muslim can't help but to be trapped as well in the same negative perceptions projected all over the world. They wore a Taliban's similar attire and most malay muslim Malaysia doesn't wear that. So how can i not think that way?? Shit, if they really wannt to plant a bomb, should i call the police? Ridiculous! Should i make an attempt to run now? Nope couldn't make it. I'll be shredded meat all over the tunnel. So i was thinking..where on earth could this people be coming from. In a flick second, i discard my negative mental thoughts. Come on this is Malaysia, Malaysian somehow i feel won't go to this extend.
Observing them carefully i can see the prayer mat on their shoulder. Ya rabbi, nak solat rupanya, Magrib is almost finished. Glimpsing at my surrounding cars, I can see all the drivers and passengers were looking at 'em. Who would not? They might have the same initial thoughts as i did. I'm a muslim pun pikir macam tu apatah yang non muslim. Then it struck me, why on earth do they need to stop and pray. There's no decent place for 'em to pray, the emergency exit is definitely grime and soiled. Surely urines all over the place. Kalau ikutkan pakaian tu dah mengalahkan imam masjid negara patutnya knowledge pun seiring laa so i wonder if they are aware that they can pray on moving vehicle! So you can't blame others if they don't embrace islam. Your act doesn't show the beauty of Islam.
We humans make it complicated
