kalau tengok from this picture, can see how dark red the inai on my fingers kan.
well, malam tu ada orang datang meng-inai-kan myself and some of my family members.
adat inai ni memang la orang kata bukan islamic ke apa.
but to me, i bukan nak follow any other cultural traditions ke apa, i only thought of its symbolism.
my husband muka agak la babyface, and myself, i look like i'm 16 years old.
(kalau ada orang rasa nak termuntah dengan statement iolls, sila muntah jauh jauh ya. nanti busuk bilik, iolls takmo tanggung. wahhaha =p)
ok anyway, because i knew we look kinda young, the inai (i feel) will avoid fitnah. sebab orang nampak inai kat jari, terus fikir dah kahwin.
some more my husband and i tak pegang tangan (since i dalam proses penghijrahan), so when we can hold each other's hands after marriage, i memang pegang la kan. saje menggedik =p
and because we're holding hands, i memang rasa a bit worried if people think we're just couples ke apa.
again, back to how young we look.
i pun takde la kerawang kerawang mende tu sangat. because like i said, i just want people to know i'm married, bukan nak tunjuk artistic ke ape ke. (sebab i jakun kahwin ok? bila tak jakun, and if the inai dah hilang by then, then biar lah. if i want to, i can top up again the inai and pretend im a newlywed. no hal la. ihik!)
i honestly don't want muslim youngsters to think it's ok to hold hands bila couple couple.
if a guy can control himself from touching a girl, and a girl can control herself from menggedik with a guy, they're on the right track, in sha Allah =)
but if dah pegang dah pun, it's not too late to stop. Allah Maha Pengampun dan Maha Mengetahui, in sha Allah apa yang diniatkan di dalam hati, Dia redhai. =)
anyway, the inai!!
the inai the kakak did for me was from a bottle. i pun tak tau la apa brand ke apa ke. my mom yang set it up for me.
yang kelakar nya, pagi tu kan masa amik wudu for solat subuh, the inai's colour ran jugak.
i didn't notice it until dah morning.
what happened was, i saw myself in the mirror looking rather brown. i actually wondered if this was what they all said as "seri pengantin". aneh sungguh, my seri made me look browner.
what's weirder was brown tu bertompok tompok!
it was concentrated at the nose area, and uneven lak tu!
i gi toilet lepas tu, and washed my hands, and only then that i realised it was the inai yang menompokkan mukaku!!
tergelak iolls masa tu.
how i thought it was seri pengantin tu yang takleh blah!!
i told my mom about it and we had a laugh!
and i told Faressa, my cousin and my makeup artist, so that she can make me look normal. ahakkk!!
alhamdulillah, i looked super normal, a bit tanned, but oh well. at least tak nampak tompok tompok brown on my face.
so siapa2 nak berinai, just make sure it's not the kind that will run down. or just be careful.
ps: don't ask me about inai jenis apa la ek, coz i honestly do not know. all i know was that it's from a bottle. kakak tu kata her own mixture. which i have no idea what.
pps: La ilaha illa anta. Subhanaka, inni kuntu minazzhalimin… Tidak ada tuhan selain-Mu. Maha Suci Engkau. Sungguh, aku ini sudah berlaku zalim… jom amalkan bersama. moga moga our dark pasts will be forgiven by The Almighty Allah. amiiin.
