Sharing thoughts, feelings and gods
By Zan Azlee

APRIL 1 — A few days ago, a friend of mine called me about a problem she was facing with her little five-year old daughter, Hannah. The little girl had come home from kindergarten one afternoon and headed straight to her room. Being the concerned mother, my friend peeked into her room. She had laid out her prayer mat, put on her telekung and was praying.

Of course, my friend smiled to herself seeing what a good little Muslim girl her daughter is. Then, after she was done praying, the little girl adjusted her prayer mat to face a different direction and started praying again. My friend was puzzled and after her daughter was done, she entered the room and asked her why she had done that.

“Hannah, you know that you are praying facing the wrong direction, right?” my friend asked.

“Yes mama. I know,” replied her daughter.

“Now why is that? Anyway, you already prayed a few minutes before.”

“I’m praying to my second god, Jesus Christ, mama.”
