Today i want to share with you my opinions about people who love to read books especially malay novel just like me ..
What’s the meaning of books lover ?
It’s mean a person who really likes to read books or in malay we called hantu buku or if someone likes to read novels , we called hantu novel .. ( aku la tu. Haha )
Another name that similar with bookworm is bibliophile .
Actually i think reading books especially malay novels is not a mistake. For book lovers like me, we mostly like to read novels to release tension from working or studying (seriously? Haha)
I mean, when we are reading novels, automatically we will put ourselves as a character in the novel,right ? it makes us to daydream and hope that our life just like in the novel .(Haha)
I think most of the writer write novels because they follow development economics . Today, teenagers like to read a book that have a lot of elements inside it. I mean they do not like to read books that go straight to topic .. (what im talking about-_-)
Not all malay novels are stories about love okay ?.. Some of them has moral values inside it . For an example :
Anjell’s novel entitled Eksperimen Cinta .. Although the title have the word ‘Cinta’ , but its not about love only . I had read this novel and the moral values that i got in the novel are first, we must never to putuskan hubungan with others especially with our own siblings. Malah Allah pun suruh kita untuk jaga hubungan. Allah berfirman :
يا أَيُّهَا النَّاسُ اتَّقُوا رَبَّكُمُ الَّذي خَلَقَكُمْ مِنْ نَفْسٍ واحِدَةٍ وَ خَلَقَ مِنْها زَوْجَها وَ بَثَّ مِنْهُما رِجالاً كَثيراً وَ نِساءً وَ اتَّقُوا اللَّهَ الَّذي تَسائَلُونَ بِهِ وَ الْأَرْحامَ إِنَّ اللّ كانَ عَلَيْكُمْ رَقيبا
“Hai sekalian manusia, … Dan bertakwalah kepada Allah yang dengan (mempergunakan) nama-Nya kamu saling meminta satu sama lain, dan (peliharalah) hubungan silaturrahim. Sesungguhnya Allah selalu menjaga dan mengawasi kamu.” (QS. an-Nisa: 1)
And second, do not accuse and punish anyone without proof. Selidik dulu bukti yang diterima sama ada betul atau salah . Jangan menuduh dengan membabi buta .. Allah berfirman :
يَـأيُّهَاالّذِيْن آمنـُوْا ِاٍنْ جـآءَكمْ فَاسقٌ بـِنَباٍ فتبيّنـُوْا أنْ تُصِبـوْا قوْمًـا بِجَهَالـةٍ فتُصْبِحُـوْا علَى مَا فعَلْتـُمْ نـدميـن
“Wahai orang-orang yang beriman, jika datang seorang yang fasik kepadamu membawa berita, maka tangguhkanlah (hingga kamu mengetahui kebenarannya) agar tidak menyebabkan kaum berada dalam kebodohan (kehancuran) sehingga kamu menyesal terhadap apa yang kamu lakukan” (QS. Al-Hujurat : 06)
Actually there are some more moral values that i got, but i will just gave 2 examples . Therefore, -‘Dont Judge A Book By It’s Cover’- Tengku Aaron (ayat dripda novel Eksperimen Cinta)
Sometimes, teachers always mention about the dark side of the novels. And my friends who knows that i really like and love reading novels will look at me with the annoying face macam nak kena sepak and said ‘Hah, dengar tu.’
And my feellings at that time just like
‘What the heck kau pandang aku gitu? Aku bca novel untk isi masa lapng. Jngan pernh salahkan novel kalau kau nk hidup lama’ – monolog-
I always heard that reading novels have no beneficts and it just a wasting time. And my face like ‘ What the heck?! U dont know anything about novels.Dont blame the novel or i kill you!’
Reading novels can rest our mind from studying or working and NOT wasting time. BUT dont read novels often. We can read books but it must be at the right time. Dont read books at the midnight . It can increase power of your eyes. And we must divide our time wisely to read books,study and so on. Dont read book continuously until you omit your responsibility as a student and as a Muslim. Dont blame the books if you get a bad result in the exam because of your own mistakes.
I think thats all . Sorry if this entry kind of rude …. and weird. and ridiculous.. me also dont know what im talking about . lol .
K bye . Assalamualaikum
