I knew about this story from Nad. I think I’m going to get the book first considering that the synopsis sounds interesting.

Source : bangdha’s profile

Ayat Ayat Cinta is a beautifully portrayed Islamic love story — a tale of a virtuous Muslim protagonist who overcomes all obstacles of life maintaining pure ideals.

Fahri bin Abdillah is a poor, intelligent student who wins a scholarship to complete his graduate degree at Egypt’s esteemed Al Azhar University. Very disciplined and dedicated by nature, Fahri embraces his life in Cairo, completing his studies and translation of religious books with full enthusiasm, exactly according to pre-determined targets.

Only one goal is left unattempted: the pursuit of marriage.

For Fahri is innocent and pure, and doesn’t believe in the concept of relationships prior to marriage. He is inarticulate and shy around women. All his life, only two women have been close to him — his mother and grandmother.

Life changes drastically in Egypt for he suddenly finds himself surrounded by four beautiful, distinctly different women.

Maria Girgis, a shy, open-minded Coptic-Christian neighbor who is attracted to the teachings of the Holy Al Quran, finds herself falling in love with Fahri (a fact she only reveals to her diary).

Nurul, a student at Al Azhar like Fahri, is the Muslim daughter of a renowned Indonesian cleric. Fahri feels unworthy of her and thus ignores his feelings for her, leaving her confused and guessing.

Noura, an abused Egyptian neighbor, develops strong romantic feelings for Fahri, who in turn simply sympathizes with her situation. His romantic rejection destroys her and eventually leads to a false accusation of rape.

Aisha, a German Turkish student in Cairo haunts Fahri with her beautiful eyes. Following an incident on the metro where Fahri defends her against narrow minded bigoted Muslims, both immediately develop feelings for each other.

As the story unravels, the protagonist makes the audience face the daunting decisions he himself faces, and forces us to marvel at his undying loyalty to the true ideals of Islam as he ultimately makes the choice of a lifetime.

Minci…what is the ultimate choice Fahri had to make? Hmm…is this a true story or a fiction?

Regarding the eyes…(maaf tulis ye): there is a hadith which (again) I forget the source: The Prophet s.a.w. asked a companion to look into eyes of his wife so as to arouse a deeper affection towards her.

Den sobonarnyo, raso diri den lah, ala ala fahri gok lah! Ado lebih baik kito ni, kenal ala kadar sebelum nikah, solat istikharoh, kemudian baru buek keputusan lah. Pasal, sepandai pandai manusio melompek, jatuh jugo kedalam parit tu ha! Parit kalau kocik patah kaki ha! Kalau parit monsoon, dok hanyut pi ke laut! Jenuh bomba nak pi selametkan🙂

People,
I have finally read the book and I agree with Nad, Fahri is a very ‘klaka’ man. Not that he crcks people up with his jokes, its just the way his simple, pure, innocent and straight forward mind thinks.

part kengkawan dia urut kaki, beli jus..adoh.. maybe its the language jugak kot..

I love the way Fahri handles his problem and I like the Islamic messages put across the book. Not too heavy but sufficient for you to think about Allah and Islam and go back on his road full of blessings.

its definitely a good book. so, IQRA’😛
