..with regards to... feelings, perhaps?..

Category: By imakubex
bismillahirrahmanirrahim,

this is perhaps frustrating to me, hence, i put it forth in here...i suppose its a culmination of my frustration from browsing the web, reading people's blogs and reading threads...

i find it interesting to note that many of my peers are so much into this 'Love' business...

all this talk about obtaining True Love and all is becoming more than an annoyance to me; its becoming really worrying...

i don't say that one should stop talking about these issues, nor do I say that we should stop talking about obtaining True Love...

but its getting out of hand, i think...

i mean, there are lots more things to talk about, so, why are we just talking about how WE feel, and what WE aspire to achieve?

people are starving, people are dying, people are uneducated, corruption is rife in the Islamic world, our ummah is in a state of weakness, and all we care is about ourselves?

does this sound right?

if you want to obtain True Love from ALLAH, i don't think you should tell it to people, because LOVE is an intimacy that is rarely put in words...

seek knowledge about it, but don't publicize it. sometimes i just have the feeling that people want to run away from what they feel towards humans, maybe because of frustration, and go to ALLAH.

by all means, do that, but does one need to publicize it all over the net?

and regarding the love thingy, i think its just plain selfish to talk about OUR love, what WE want, etc...

more interestingly, people ask questions about what to do and not to do regarding couples, and how to love people etc. i mean, there are lots of articles around; why are we asking the same question over and over again? are we trying to find an answer that satisfy our hearts or do we crave for ALLAH's redha?

and i don't know why, but we are so much into all this hukum stuff. its OK to know, but some of the issues brought up are so much trivial compared to what we should be doing for the ummah...


i mean, if one has that many hours to think about LOVE, then how many hours do we devote to think about the betterment of the ummah? how many hours do we spend to read up on stuff so that we are better equip to face society? what efforts have we made towards that end?

let us bethink ourselves. yes, teenagers do need to think about stuff relating to marriage, love, etc., but is that the only thing that needs to be cared about?

i think we think too much about ourselves, more than anything else. i suppose its fair enough, but the thing is, it is not really healthy, as it shows some symptoms of not really caring...

having said that, i do know that people will usually retort by saying, 'no, we talk about other stuff as well, like Palestine, Iraq and we try to change society that is so rife with all this maksiat to the creator, which usually is in the form of couples and things regarding the heart.'

i accept such an argument, yet I find such things are more of a portent to something bigger that lies underneath...

it is true that our society is messed up; Muslims doing things they are not supposed to do, there is no government that is doing Islamic law, etc.

but I do honestly believe that it all stems from 1 single problem: 'aqidah.

most teenagers don't have that sense of direction in their lives, nor do they have enough conviction in their religion...

and i think that's the most important thing that we should tackle, before anything else...

again, I am emphasing that I am not against all this talk about Love, its just that it is becoming so rampant that it occupies all the space in forums that the majority are teenagers...

I myself am not married, so its not like I'm saying this to condemn the act; I myself am searching for True Love!

to simplify, I think that its not that its not important to talk about these things, just do it moderately. i find it amazing that novels about love sell out so fast, when books about the state of the ummah, philosophy of knowledge in Islam, and other stuff is not very popular...

not that I'm saying everyone should pick up a book and read, but its alarming to see the proportion of time spent on reading these stuff, as opposed to reading other stuff...

in all fairness, everyone has different interests. but when you really think of it, does such a behaviour more suggestive of a society that cares too much about themselves, and not about others?

and i think, when one gets married, one may think of such a things as being not worth spending too much of one's time on...

if i am mistaken please correct me...

wallahua'lam

    Salam..

    I got ur blog from iLuvislam. just clicking to ur blog.
    n read about this post.

    Well, as u said:

    " but its getting out of hand, i think...

    i mean, there are lots more things to talk about, so, why are we just talking about how WE feel, and what WE aspire to achieve? "

    i guess, before this i hv done that. while i'm getting my SPM. i will always blogging to express what i feel and aspire to achieve. but sometimes ijust hope people dont read my post as it is all about me.but right now, i'm rarely blogging.

    Well maybe u r right, sometimes we always think bout our ownself rather than think about ummah n society. Teenagers especially. I agree with you. erm, is it wrong to write something what we feel.i dont know. maybe there is a better way to write something.

    and i just want to ask,
    how to avoid just thinking about ourself and try to think about ummah?

    p/s: u hv a high-level english i think.i just understand ur post only 70%(",)

    salam'alaikum.

    guess who!~=P

    first time commenting here and I might stalk around more because you know I like to hear what your thoughts about things are (although sometimes it can be a bit too much for me :P)

    anyways...
    I think it all stems to the 'aqidah as you've mentioned. If every single person holds true to their Iman insyaAllah everything else will take it's course automatically.

    salam...

    quite true bro...

    we see, people are becoming more objective nowadays, seeking answers of black & white, whereas life is so subjective that we should venturing what lies ahead of us with care.

    not everything can be answered; because we dont have knowledge about it, or it's just a way to help people..

    a famous sayings,

    give a man a fish, you feed him once; teach a man how to fish, you feed him for his lifetime.

    tapi xkan la nak ajar joran panjang mana, cacing umur berapa nak jadikan umpan atau berapa masa yg perlu diambil sblum bertukar port...

    aku pun pening la im... aduhai...

Something to say?
