A VIDEO of a non-Muslim reciting Quran verses went viral on TikTok, impressing Muslim netizens.

Medical assistant M. Divyadarshini, 27, said she was also able to read Jawi aside from memorising some verses from the Quran as she was raised by a Muslim nanny, reports Harian Metro.

“Previously, only my family and close friends knew that I memorised the surah (verses).

“However, this somehow went viral after I joined a live session on TikTok with someone on the platform.

“The lady requested that I recite the prayer before eating, and she also asked me about any surah that I knew by heart. I recited Surah An-Naas, and I didn’t expect it would go viral,” she said.

Divyadarshini said her family never stopped her from learning the Quranic verses from her babysitter, who took care of her from age six to 16.

“Whenever my babysitter taught her child to recite the Quran, I would join them.

“From there, I learned how to read the Arabic letters and Jawi as well as memorise some short surahs,” she added.

She also admitted to having trust issues, especially with men, which led her to prefer friendships over romantic relationships.

“I have a hard time trusting people, especially men. Maybe I’ve been in a similar situation and seen my parents’ marital problems and their divorce.

“I got to know some guys, but I don’t have the desire to pursue a marriage. Not that I’m angry or disappointed, just that I’m more comfortable on my own,” she said.

Isyariana said that she would also avoid forming a romantic relationship with fellow actors or colleagues.
