Thanks to my housemates, I am now following an interesting Malay TV drama, called Nur Kasih. I don’t know why all of the sudden this series catches my attention. During the one-month holiday last August, I didn’t show any interest to it but now when watching Malaysian drama is almost impossible if you don’t have any internet connection, I suddenly can’t stop myself from downloading it every dawn when every one is still in their deep sleep. (it’s the only time where the internet connection is fast. Sigh~)
I can’t bring myself to answer the question why this series is different from any other series but one thing I do realize is this drama speaks to me in a way that regular speech never could. It evokes a response from me and every time I finish watching, it gives me warmth, comfort and understanding that I can never find with people.
The story is about a family of a dying religious man who has two sons of opposite personality – one is obedient and very religious while the other is stubborn and never a good muslim. Thus, before he died, he wanted to do something to save the devil. To do so, he asked the devil to marry a woman, Nur Amina which he believes is the perfect woman that will bring his son back to the correct path in becoming a good muslim. He said, “Adam perlukan isteri seperti Siti Khadijah” but Adam had had a girlfriend waiting for him in Australia while his brother, Aidil had a crush on Nur Amina and Aidil said there’s no such thing as forced marriage in Islam.
Thus, trying to spare you from the whole story, I suggest you guys watch it on your own. If you’re a fan of Ayat-ayat Cinta, I bet you’ll like this drama too.You can watch every episode of Nur Kasih at TV3 official website, or download it here.
p/s= I’m not an avid reader of English book (or any book perhaps) during the holiday. Thus, my english’s gonna suck for a while. Yes, I do realize it.
