Do'a yang sama di Zaman yang Berbeda

“Doakan aku, menikah dengan orang yang aku cintai dan mencintai aku”

Mahligai indah pernikahan, siapa yang tak menginginkannya. Terlebih menikah dengan orang yang aku cintai dan mencintai aku,seperti keinginan Zainab dalam novel sastra Dibawah Lindungan Ka’bah, karya Buya Hamka.
