i am a Malay
trying to speak fluent in English
it needs effort
i am not learning English because it is one of the important language in the world
i am learning English because i love language
English for me is just the same with other language that exist in this world
it is knowledge that we chase , that we can obtain through hard work
but the knowledege must be chase in the path of Allah S.W.T
the path that we use the language to spread the beauty of Islam toward others
my lecturer once said
"we had lost the Batu Putih because one of our lawyers cannot speak fluently in English"
*the Island was given to Singapore after the international trial in ICJ
so what if other people questioned the credibility of Islam?
we had to answer it, we had to make them understand
language is one of the way
one people cannot build a nation, it needs many, who fight in one path
