...of the time to come...

bismillahirrahmanirrahim..

i was reading about something, and was thinking about how people say Islam being the world order and stuff, and what strikes me as interesting is just that; how people say it out loud, not do it in practice...

it is rather interestingly frustrating that people seem to say many things but also seem contented to just sit in their quiet corner doing only the minimal, if not nothing..

it is simple, work for what one believe in, and God willing, one will reap what one sow. but when people say Islam will certainly come on top someday, do they really walk their talk?

i mean, we all know that that will inevitably happen, but what do we do?

this is especially true for students, who has the most free time of all adults...

don't be so conceited and arrogant by saying that i have no time, i need to concentrate on my studies; these are, quite frankly, selfish and rather immature...

if you want to talk like that, fair enough, but please list down how many hours you waste on the internet doing stuff that doesn't really matter to the world, watching on youtube things that doesn't add anything to your knowledge, talking to friends about the latest trends and fashions, talking about gossips of this artist and that, etc...

if you still don't want to care, then fine. but don't give the excuse of not having enough time to do your part in society if you are doing things like that and don't study, it makes one looks rather weak...

time is a funny thing, because when one is hard pressed to do something, then one can finish it in a quick and efficient manner. but when one has too much time in one's hand, then the efficiency simply goes down..

don't take time as being something absolute, the human consciousness may very well be intimately intertwined with time itself.

and stop saying things like i don't care about politics, or i don't want to get involved in society because i'm bad at communicating with people; fact is, very few people are good with people. in fact, if you're bad at it, then it is precisely why you should do it...

we always say that the youth are the agents of change, and we always look to the time of the prophet as being such a good example of this. but we seldom take a step back and think, what have i done for the betterment of society? do i even care enough about society to act?

and acting does not mean looking at people in society that needs help, yet never talk to any of those so-called troubled people and try to understand them, much less help them. all we do is scorn at them...

it is funny that we say we study hard in university for the sake of ALLAH and that we will contribute to His cause when we work when in reality, we sit in our own corner, doing enough to satisfy our whims, and do the bare minimum for Islam...

funny, isn't it, when students say 'I want to be an Islamic doctor,' or 'I want to be an Islamic engineer,' when all they do is read books, pass exams, get a job, get a spouse, buy a big house, produce some kids, and die...

now that, is funny...

wallahua'lam

    alhamdulillah..

    nicely said. puts u in a situation to reflect "I have not done enough for my deen.. no matter how much I have" .. OR .. "OMG! I haven't done anything though I talk a lot!! (DANG!!!)"

    of course, we need CONSTANT VIGILANCE that d syaitan is our number one enemy.. na'uzubillah min zalik, we should always hope that we're on the straight path.. and fear of the 'azaab if we're not..

    and syaitan will not seize to try and make us go astray.. spreading fitnah on so and so - along the way trying to shatter the strong aqeedah bond between muslims.. we need to embrace each other.. not think low towards one (thinking they've got no hope wutsoever)..

    probably one tiny comment along those lines.. we should bear in mind to always appreciate each other's effort even though how small one might think it is.. (of course, this does not deny 100% to give suggestions on alternatives that one might say more 'muntij'-ier.. huhu.. i.e. better) ;)

    terasa dlm g2... huhu..

    very2 honest...

    maybe u havent seen people that say they are a muslim doctor, a muslim engineer, a muslim teacher...

    maybe u havent seen what they contribute to Islam n to the community...
    how did sekolah2 swasa Islam ditubuhkan.. most of the founder's studied in UK or overseas.. they dont brag about it...


    but u know what... they started having the spirit to uphold Islam when they were in our age...

    dont say people who talk alot about bringing back the glory to Islam doesnt to anything...

    if there cant do it now... and do it when they have a firm foundation n the knowledge... at least they are doing it.. maybe not when they were talking about it during their universities years..

    to build an individual that totally puts Islam in their mind n hearts takes along tyme..

    be patient... i want to do something for Islam.. maybe i cnt afford it know... but, I pray that one day i cn contribute bigger things for Islam.. at least, im telling people... that we have to strive for the best for Islam...

    In front of Allah during judgement day.. I can tell Allah, that I did my best, even thought it is a small contribution.. InsyaAllah..
