Do we really need religion?

Dude, why do we need religion in our life? Isn't it makes your life difficult? Yeah to obey all the rules and so on, come on we are in this modern era, we learn and know morality, we know humanity very well, we practice good lifestyle so why do we need religion to tell us what to do and what not to? We can live our life freely as long as we don't disturb others, isn't it reasonable? We are in our religion by chance, I mean because our parents are in that religion we are happened to be the follower as well, we follow religion blindly!

Ok now you said you didn't need religion in your life because you know morality and humanity very well, let me ask you, who will determine whether the deeds are good or bad? Like morality, it could be very subjective, it may different from time to time, for example in modesty one of morality, a covered woman in Hijab say that non Hijab woman as immodest and a woman with no Hijab say that a woman with less clothes as immodest and a woman with less clothes will say that a woman in bikini as immodest and a woman in bikini will say that a nude woman is immodest. You have to remember, this is the point of view people of this era, how about the next generation, they may have another point of view in modesty. So which opinion is right in this situation? Can we say all of them is right? Who to tell them what modesty is? Who will determine which one is good for them, whether to cover themselves or not? 

We need to go back to the very basic and simple principle that we are the creation of the Most Great Creator, the one and only God, Allah. He did not simply created us and put us on Earth with no guidance, because He created us so He knows what do we need in our life, He tells us our purpose of life so that we will not ruin ourselves and others. He, Allah has the right to tell us what to do and what not to, so He gives us the manual which is Islam as a guidance, it makes our life organize and beautiful. We worship Him the way He wants us to, not the way we want to because He's the creator. Just like a car, the creator will also creates the manual along with it and if the user doesn't follow the manual,what do you think will happen?Yes,eventually the car will broken and who's suffering here? THE USER, and who to put the blame on, is it the CREATOR of the car or the USER? Yes again, the USER. Isn't it logic enough?

Yes, we are given the ability to think and analyze, so use this precious gift to find the WISDOM behind all the commands and rules. If we are born as Muslim BY CHANCE because our parents are Muslim, that's not an excuse to LEARN and GAIN knowledge, don't follow blindly, go into the flow and feel the beautiful sense when you follow religion because you are aware. We don't need to be instant perfect Muslim, we may take time, keep improve ourselves because Allah look into the effort even if it only the size of the seeds. Be a Muslim by choice not by chance, change the way you look at religion, look at it as God's love and gift for us not as a difficulties. Only with that we will find the wisdom behind all the command that the little discomfortness and difficulties at the beginning is nothing compared to the benefits we gained by practicing Islam. The research shown that psychologically, religion is the source of hope and optimist, it promotes good feelings of belongingness, it can boost our self-esteem and provides protection from existential threat. Which means it is good for our health!  Well, mentally and physically. So what are we waiting for? Ask yourself!

I am freaking serious!

Well, I am not interested to promote this cool t-shirt my intention of putting this picture is to tell you that I am serious. Oh no, not sort of serious like I never smile to people and working 24/7 non stop with my head straight and my eyes stick on the machine OR something like that, it's just I am seriously miss to write wah bajet penulis berkaliber,  Oh my last post was on 27th October and today is 19th October opss November! What did I do? Let me think for a second not enough time ok maybe a minute, well I can't think of anything *this is even more serious*, oh Allah I want to write something that serious and now while trying to write something serious I discover the extremely serious thing : I didn't do anything actually! Wait, wait let me think deeper, let me reorganize my memories in this little space of my mind. Give me a chance to take a deep breath and here we go..........................after five minutes.........ah! Blank!!!! 

It means I just did something ordinary and I don't even have enough motivation to keep those things in my mind. What happen to me? What happen to my memory space? What is actually happening? I don't want to live my life absolutely same like animal, eating and sleeping, gain nothing. Big NO! I have to gain, learn, share and give something to others because the world is not my real home, hereafter is my real home, don't be foolish, please wake up! Reorganize your life according to Islam, Islam is beautiful, reasonable and suitable for all the time. Oh Allah don't let us be the servant of our desires, we are Your servants and only You. Allah, help us to keep in this right path and at the same time invite others to this path. Thank you Allah to sprinkle this feeling in my heart, that I need to do something if I want to keep my Iman alive. :'(

Have a blast day ahead buddies! C:
