Losing Islamic Identity, aren’t we?

29 Mar

Something to think of...

I went to a Meelad yesterday. And there one fine lady read this poem aloud and it was one powerful piece of writing.Β  I knew it in a sec. that i had to have it. I had to publish it on my blog. Just had to.

Because, it’s so true, sad but true. This is who WE are. We, us Muslims, well most of us i know. We follow everything blindly as we are told, by our parents, grand-parents and so on. But, nobody questions. About all the why’s, how and where’s, anymore. They just follow whatever they are told to. And this has to stop now because, the Real Islam is one way or the other not in our mind, but it’s the culture that we are living/wasting our lives for. We think that it’s religion however what Islam wants us to be, how it wants its followers to be is not even brought into consideration anymore, since emotions took over.

People are happy listening to the tales of oh-so-many prophets and nobody even knows anything about their preachings, what they asked their fellow brothers to do, to surrender to the will of Almighty Allah. Night and day we live with the incessant thought that we can never be wrong. Never giving much room to thoughts that just might convince us otherwise.

Be the change you want in this world. Especially in our, Muslims world.

    Very thoughtful.

    I always wonder that Allah created thinking and wisdom which we used to invent things, to argue, to discover mysteries. And it truly looks logical as we think & it happens. But HE WHO created all this, HE is the fountain of wisdom. And HE will interrogate us about the power of thinking and decision making given to us. That we explored every thing except the philosophy & ideology of our religion.
