Actually wanted to share this during the Stong post-mortem but didn’t, I had it at the back of my mind but it just didn’t come out. Wallahu’alam. Anyway since I know some of u will hop over to my blog somehow (come on, there is no need to deny the obvious ;) ), here it goes..
2 years ago while in Mt. Ophir/Gunung Ledang with the NYP Adventure Club ppl, 3 of us girls were searching for the praying direction/kiblat at the base camp. And we found this kiblat signboard made by Saff-Perdaus! (Time tu blum blaja pasal reading stars for kiblat & we were too shy to ask the rangers. Hee.) It actually made us feel safe & relieved that alhamdulillah, yey we can pray here! Dulu lain, sekarang lain.. Especially since ADC & Saff are 2 completely different organisations.
The point is, at that point of time I never imagined getting to travel with the people who made the kiblat signboard Saff. So it is really a blessing to have experienced travelling both ways where back then, we had to scramble and find ways to solat whereas I don’t have to worry about that when travelling with Saff.
So siape yang buat kiblat signboard tu, you really helped us during that time. Thank you so much! It is amazing when I think about this. That 2 years ago, I was there, and you guys also set foot there (perhaps that signboard was a sign, pun intended) but we didn’t get a chance to cross paths… till now. MasyaAllah, such a blessing. :)
