islam

assalamualaikum..
i have so much to learn and i'm still learning bit by bit but i think there's no harm for me trying to share my  opinion from what i've learned in my blog. hopefully it'll act as a reminder for me to try and be a better person every day.

let's talk about islam.the religion that millions or billions of people in the world claim as their faith. we say we are muslims but to come to think of it what have we done that really show our religion. it's been known that islam is not just a religion.it's a way of life.let's look at our lives. are we living it right? does anyone can really be sure and say it out loud yes i've been living my life as i should. even our prophet muhammad(peace be upon him) that has been promised a place in paradise, repents more than hundred times a day..how about us?have we ever repent for all the sins we've done intentionally or not?

in chapter 2 verse 208, Allah said

'O you who have believed, enter into Islam completely [and perfectly] and do not follow the footsteps of Satan. Indeed, he is to you a clear enemy.'




it has been clearly said, to those who BELIEVED, enter into islam COMPLETELY and PERFECTLY.

there's always different interpretation when reading quran depending on individual perception but this simple verse is more or less self explanatory. It says that if you choose to claim yourself as muslims, be ONE! do exactly what islam teaches us to do. we cant just follow one rule and neglect the other according to our preferences and yet we shamelessly claim ourselves as muslim. yes we always hear people say,you cant change abruptly,it's not gonna be permanent. I guess it's true but for how long are we going to drag this phase just because we feel like we are not ready? why why? why arent we ready to serve our God when He's given us too much love. I guess we take things for granted. just because we achieved everything and have all things we want, are we going to forget about our creator? 

in chapter 7 verse 34

To every people is a term appointed: when their term is reached not an hour can they cause delay nor (an hour) can they advance (it in anticipation).

when the time comes, and that's the end of our lives there's not a single thing we can do to delay or to make it faster. before that time comes, let's us all repent and try our best to enter into islam completely and perfectly. let's start with a simple things.cover ourself as completely as we can. let's try to learn and get to know islam better. eventhough we are muslims, i personally think there's still a lot that we dont know about islam. and there's a saying, we wont love something until we get to know it. step by step, even though it's just a small step let's bring ourself forward,with hope to be better each day. and just so you know, in every step we take towards Him, He's taking hundreds towards us.

this post is a reminder to myself as well because i dont think i have done anything for my religion. let's start now.
