this entry is a continuation from my previous entry. so, last time i talked about loving or learning to see thing that we don't like from other people eyes.
actually i was talking to myself. i haven't been in a situation where i got forced to learn things that extremely not my cup of tea. so last week i went to my uncle's house and he wrote the opening words for a book written by a prominent contemporary Muslim philosopher and thinker from Malaysia, Syed Muhammad Naquib Al-Attas. the book entitled Islam dan Sekularisme.
to be honest, i don't read this kind of book, coz it makes me think and understand like i do for my add math and history classes. maybe this book is interesting to some people, perhaps those who are working in Islam theological thinking field.
my uncle is the professor in UKM and he presented this book to me, hoping that i will read and understand it coz as he said, it is hard to find youngsters today who willing to read this kind of books and have high level of understanding regarding the world and the civilization of Islam. this book have been translated to over 20 different languages and i got the semi-bahasa indonesia one.
i'm gonna read this within a month and on the first day of raya, my uncle is going to ask me about the book, which i'm sure if its a joke or not. hahaha. but yeah, i'm gonna try to see and read it and try to love the art, coz he is very committed in things like this. and i promise you guys to share with you the contents and what i will be learning from this piece of art.
