Aku sengaja mahu menulis tentang jodohmu, dan jodohku yang entah bila


Tidak pernah kusangka-sangka jodohmu adalah jiran di belakang rumahku. Dulu, bila aku tanya dalam bahasa sindiran dan bergurau, “Bila nak kawin?” katamu mahu tunggu aku yang kawin dulu. Rupa-rupanya jodoh kita (tarikh dan tempatnya) memang jauh berbeza, Tuhanlah yang menentukannya.

Ketika kita berarak ramai-ramai ke rumah pengantin, tidak juga kusangka-sangka namaku yang kau sebut bila datang pihak pengantin perempuan menghulurkan payung kuning raja sehari. Maka, dengan rasa segan yang kutahan-tahan, aku memayungkanmu ke rumah isterimu yang juga jiranku. Kau segak bertanjak. Aku bujang terlajak. Kita beriringan ke rumah pengantin perempuan. Diiringi ahli keluarga dan sekalian sanak-saudara. Aku tahu, kau bahagia. Walau dalam gementar dan gugup yang hampir-hampir nampak di muka.

Kira-kira sehari sebelumnya, di saat kau mengadap imam mahu diijabkabulkan, aku juga yang kau minta duduk paling dekat di belakangmu. Terpaksalah aku bersila hanya sejengkal dua dari hamparan baldu tempat kau ‘menjawab nikah’mu. Sengaja langsung tidak kutepuk belakangmu kerana kudengar lancar dan jelas sebutanmu.

Malam sebelumnya, kau terkejut bila kukatakan aku ada urusan di tempat lain pada hari kau bakal diijabkabulkan. Tapi atas permintaanmu, aku segera pulang di saat kau mahu disatukan imam. Dan alhamdulillah, aku berjaya hadir di majlis pernikahanmu yang diadakan di sebuah masjid dalam daerah kita.

Kau tentunya pengantin yang paling bahagia kerana perkahwinanmu diraikan dalam tiga majlis berbeza. Dan di rumah ayahmu sebelum kau diraikan pada majlis yang ketiga, kunampak jam baru di tanganmu yang merupakan salah satu balasan hantaran daripada pihak pengantin perempuan dan kudoakan moga jodohmu kekal dirahmati Tuhan.

Dalam munajatmu siang atau malam, jangan dilupa untuk kau doakan jodoh seorang insan yang bernama Salman Sulaiman kerana aku sebenarnya sudah bosan ditanya, bila mahu berumah tangga. Dalam kemeriahan meraikan perkahwinanmu; aku hampir-hampir terlupa bahawa aku ini teruna tua bangka yang masih belum bernikah.

Tataplah catatan ini sebagai kenang-kenangan dan kalau tidak menjadi kesalahan, terimalah ia juga sebagai sebahagian daripada hadiah kecil perkahwinan daripada seorang Salman dan tulisan ini juga sebenarnya sengaja mahu mengingatkan diri sendiri bahawa aku ini jantan tua bangka yang masih belum berumah tangga.


Salman Sulaiman

Sdr Salman: Salam sejahtera buat Sdr. Memintalah kepada Dia yang selalu mendengar. Barangkali kita terlalu inginkan yang sempurna menurut kaca mata kita, sedangkan pada waktu sama, perempuan juga menilai kita menurut kesempurnaan yang mereka inginkan. Alangkah indah kalau ada tolak ansur dan saling pengertian dalam memaknakan kesempurnaan itu antara lelaki dan perempuan.

Demikian adanya dan Wassalam.

Ana rasa tertarik pula untuk berkongsi sedikit wasiat daripada seorang sahabat Rasulullah yang berbunyi: "Wahai anakku yang ingin menikah dan menanam, hendaklah seseorang memperhatikan di mana ia menanam tananamnya. Sebab, akar yang buruk itu sedikit sekali dapat melahirkan. Maka pilihlah, walaupun lama waktunya". Jadi, ana harap anta bersabar menanti jodoh anta, mungkin Allah telah menyediakan yang terbaik untuk anta maka, dilambatkan kurniaannya itu. Jangan berhenti berharap, berdoa dan berusaha. Selamat maju jaya dalam pencarianmu.
