Viral di media sosial baru-baru ini apabila pelakon dan pengacara tinggi lampai, Daphne Iking memegang seekor anjing dengan mengeluarkan satu kenyataan yang mengundang perhatian dan kemarahan netizen. Tetapi Daphne sekali lagi mencuri perhatian apabila tampil cantik berhijab sempurna. Ramai menyangka dia sudah melakukan penghijrahan apabila tampil berhijab sempurna dengan busana longgar yang menutup auratnya. Tetapi sebenarnya Daphne hadir berhijab ketika menjadi host program kebajikan kutipan dana untuk pembinaan masjid di Seville, Spain menjadi tumpuan.

Menurut Daphne, dia berterima kasih kepada peminat yang sentiasa mendoakan yang terbaik untuknya. Menurutnya lagi, dia sudah mula memakai selendang sebelum dia berhijrah lagi. Dia juga memberitahu mempunyai sebab tersendiri mengapa masih belum bertudung.

Thank you to all those who wish and pray for me to have this, as my permanent look and dressing. I was dressed and styled especially for the event last night. . The abaya is from @bymarlena_official and the instant headscarf is a limited edition called JOURNEY designed by @elfaezaulhaq ❤️ herself. . I’ve actually worn a shawl (I’m still not comfortable calling it a hijab due to my understanding of the actual term) over my head even before my conversion- wrapping it loosely before receiving communion or during random days that I feel like styling it the way I did. . I have my reasons for not donning a tudung (just yet?) – I truly believe, especially in a society like ours where one is quick to judge and point out flaws instead of looking at the brighter side, best I betulkan and improve my knowledge and strengthen the iman dahulu, so the outer reflects my inner journey too. God MUST be telling me something though. There has been too many circumstances in a series of events that have made me dig deeper in this journey of discovering myself and the deen. . InshaAllah, HE will shine a path for all of us to better ourselves. To do good. Be good. . Jangan lupa mengundi ye? Eh. #tetiba. . . #smf?

Melihat kepada masyarakat hari ini, dia percaya seseorang lebih cepat menghukum dan mencari kesalahan berbanding melihat sesuatu daripada sudut yang positif. Jadi lebih baik dia betulkan, menambah pengetahuan dan memperkukuhkan iman dahulu.

The moment we met, I clicked with her. Our meet came when I was giving up on faith and the ummah due to recent events. But she shared her journey and my faith was renewed. . Thank you @elfaezaulhaq for believing in me to emcee your spiritual journey from Spain to Malaysia. It was your first production, your first event under Ul Haq Production and you took me, a new believer, someone so cetek in ilmu to host the event. I am humbled and grateful, thankful and inspired by you and your teams effort in giving back, doing good. . May your journey be fulfilling and may the @seville_mosque_fund help the plight of our Spanish brother and sisters in Islam in getting the mosque they so desperately need. . For more information please visit @seville_mosque_fund Or email them directly at UlHaqProductions@gmail.com . All proceeds will go to @mezquitasevilla . #wesupportSMF? #SMF?

Sebelum itu, pelakon dari Sabah ini telah memeluk Islam dengan nama Islamnya adalah Dahlia Eleanor M Iking. Dia juga menegaskan bahawa tujuan sebenar memeluk agama Islam adalah kerana terpesona dengan keindahan agama Islam bukan semata-mata kerana ingin mengahwini lelaki Muslim.

Daphne dan suaminya. Azmi Abdul Rahman berkahwin pada 8 Januari 2011 di kampung halamannya, Keningau, Sabah. Walau bagaimanapun mereka hanya mengadakan majlis kenduri secara kecil-kecilan.

Sebelum itu dalam Utusan Online, Daphne pernah memberitahu dia  selalu teruja untuk mengetahui keindahan agama lain kerana mahu pastikan dapat mengulas sesuatu perkara dengan tepat.

Apatah lagi kebanyakan ahli keluarga Daphne jenis yang suka membaca. Semua bahan bacaan dibaca termasuk buku berkaitan agama yang turut diletakkan di rak buku. Antara buku tentang agama yang pernah dibaca seperti Understanding Islam (A Brief Illustrated Guide To Understanding Islam oleh I.A. Ibrahim).

Menurutnya buku ini mengajar panduan asas Islam. Ia memudahkan dia untuk  belajar tentang perkara boleh dilakukan atau dilarang dalam agama ini, ternyata Daphne begitu teruja dan bersemangat setiap kali bercerita lanjut tentang minatnya yang mendalam tentang agama.

Daphne memberitahu keluarga sebelah ibunya, Naili Ganahang adalah sebuah keluarga campuran yang cukup unik. Mereka terdiri daripada latar belakang budaya dan agama yang cukup berbeza. Jadi dari sinilah mereka menghormati kepercayaan masing-masing.

Someone once told me he’s a believer of God and goes by the rule of doing, thinking and being good and kind and compassionate in all that he does. . He says he does not belong to any “religion”. . I thought that was blasphemy (knowing he was raised in a Muslim home)but I reserved my comment. . Now I understand his point of view. . As I watch him pray 5 times a day, has refused a handsome job because he felt the fees and the objectives didn’t sit well with his conscience, is extremely loyal and devoted to his wife and 4 kids, is blunt when it comes to life choices sticking to integrity and honesty in his decisions, fasts during the fasting month and offers his alms, be it in monetary form or volunteering – I respect his decision to not categorize his belief. . Since I’m getting all these “Mualaf. Tapi tak Muslim pun” sort of comments in my recent post, Maybe I am just that and I’m ok with that label of not being Muslim enough to be part of your “club”. . I believe in one God. The Father Almighty. Creator of Heaven and Earth. . May HE guide and protect us.

Takdir bagaimanapun telah membuka hati Daphne untuk mendalami agama Islam. Rakan-rakan mualaf juga banyak bercerita tentang keindahan dan kesucian Islam. Rasa ingin tahu semakin memuncak dan Daphne banyak bertanya kepada ustaz kalau ada soalan bermain di fikiran tentang hal-hal berkaitan agama.
