Every person possesses a God-fearing good side and an evil side too. The one we feed, is all that makes a difference.
We judge people on the basis of their religion, sect, appearance whatnot. We even judge people for judging other people forgetting that’s what we are judging them for. Hahaha aren’t we all a bit too messed up? Is this all we’re here for?! Well….. it’s a little complicated.
Firstly, I’m here after a long long time. Didn’t want to write anything at all, because the one I used to write because of, left me and this world a little too early. But today, I need to say what I’ve kept inside for too long. What brought me here is….. A judgement!
Some people often say “only God can judge me” and think they’ve gotten a license to do pretty much everything God himself forbids of. We often come across tweets and posts mentioning ‘how hijab couldn’t save them from being harrassed so that makes it useless’. Um hello? We do NOT cover our bodies, heads or even faces to save our self from men. We do it because Allah ordered. Not men, not you, not I, not the Islamic scholars but Allah. The one who is All-knowing. Judging people on the basis of hijab or beard is as wrong as cursing hijab for not protecting you. Then there are some of us who hate to be reminded. We don’t like hearing why someone asked us to cover our body or pray five times. Also, when it comes to reminding, there are nicer ways to do that. Judging, being harsh, hurting and then reminding is NOT a way. We all want to convey our own message, no one wants to convey Allah’s message and that my friend, is where the problem lies. But there is nothing wrong with sharing and hearing each others views and then acting upon Allah’s orders. After all, it’s all for Him.
I’m not here to judge anyone nor am I anyone to judge anyway. But like I said, we all possess a good side and an evil on too. The good side is obviously God-fearing because after all, that’s where peace comes from. Those two giant monsters inside only depend on what we feed them. If we feed the good one with every thing that’s good and pure, then we will definitely end up doing what’s right. If we feed evil inside, we can not expect anything good to come out of it. It’s that simple. It’s a personal matter. It’s good to express your point of view. It’s good to openly support what is right. But it’s only valid if you practice it yourself first. Don’t go around making people feel like crap just because that particular thing did not work for you. Make others smile. If there’s no way you can do that then please be quiet. Don’t go around saying things without fearing how it would effect the person you’re saying it to. They might not have what you have and they might not be doing what is right in your opinion but they do have a HEART. And the worst you can do to someone is break their heart. I’m not perfect myself and I have done many mistakes my whole life but one of the most important lessons life has taught me in these two decades is; do your best to make someone feel better. If you can’t do that anymore then do yourself a favour and just stand up and leave that place for someone better.
