i just finished watching a video from baba ali in youtube.com titled "Some 'Religious People' aren't very religious". it was indeed a hilarious video but it kills me inside. seriously, what he was talking about is really worrying me...
i made a decision to take a step, trying to become a true muslim when i was 19 years (i'm still noob) and now, i'm still in the process of learning about islam. working hard to practice what Islam told me (and Muslims) to do and it was not an easy path. it was and still like a thornful path.
alhamdulillah, Allah slowly gave me a chance to learn, to practice what i learned in a very very very conducive atmosphere (which is KMB). all to praises to Him that making the process faster and i'm sure that there is long way to go. i need to sacrifice just because of Allah in order for me to get His blessing, the ultimate goal!
the tiny transformation that i did somehow makes me afraid if i am the one of the people that bro Baba Ali talked about. i'm afraid that i have this kind of ego that makes me feel i am better than others (God forbids). because the true muslims will not feel it as more knowledge that one gets, he/she will become more humble because he/she realized there is so much things that he/she didn't know.
people think that "one who looked more religious is the one who is more pious" but looking at the hadith (that i get from the video) ;
"Allah does not look at your looks and appearance, but rather He looks at your hearts and action." [Muslim]
no one knows who is more pious or not, because only Allah knows what inside His slaves' heart. right?
i'm writing this not because i want to say bad about Muslims but i want to make a reminder especially for myself and dear readers to sit back and reflect ourselves. are we that kind of person? we're just Allah's slaves that have to do things that He asked and left all the things that He hates.
yeah, saying is easier than doing. like what we always heard, "Action speaks louder than words" now, we have to break the ego cause Ust Nouman Ali Khan once said [NOT THE EXACT WORDS] , "If we're crossing the boundaries that Allah made, we're not hurting Allah but we're hurting (or destroy) ourselves" -.-
aim to reach now (and always) ----> remembering Allah for every seconds..biiznillah. cause if we remember Allah, we know we're the weak one and Allah is the superior one. it solves the prob. how can we say we're the better or the best if we admit that we are weak. dont get me wrong, okay? Muslims are strong because of Allah and weak because of Allah too. :)
any question or objection? put it in comments.
thank you for reading ^_^ peace be upon you.
p/s : this reflection is only to reflect ourselves. when you reflects, you're not looking anyone, you're looking yourself. so, dont talk about people. talk about yourself.
