Singer and actress Dewi Persik left on a pilgrimage to Mecca on Wednesday, hoping to strengthen her ties with God. But she had a favor to ask in return — she hoped that on the trip to the holy land, God would find her a soulmate.
“Hopefully, Allah will give me his best imam [Muslim priest],” she said.
Dewi has been in a number of relationships, and has two ex-husbands, but she has not found the right person. She would like to find a partner while making the pilgrimage, but admitted that she was not keeping her hopes up in terms of finding a holy man.
“Well, what kind of ustadz [preacher] would want to be with me? If there was one, I would certainly introduce him to the camera,” she said.
