The moment im writing this, there’s a Friday sermon given to the crowds of Muslims. I could hear from the very top of the hill where IIUM mosque is located at (though it wasnt that clear).. and im sure they form a large group of Muslim sharing the same belief, the same practice but with different ways of thinking and behaving..
Muslims look strong and unite in this crowd. yet, what matters further is when they are released after the prayer and go back to where the spirit gradually loses.
Real life speaks when people start to separate themselves over classes, levels, interest, and achievement. we tend not to notice others suffering as a result of what we commonly practice but the real fact tells that, those people do suffer. the system of democracy doesnt really help anyway because still, the ones who have no power are left behind and the poor are looked down. this kind of community isn’t natural and it doesnt contribute to peace at all. even at the lowest point.
Are we performing a brotherhood community or a clique community throughout the way? it’s a close bond Islam tries to emphasize among its followers, regardless of how much people u influence or how great your position is.. its not about living within our own cliques or within those we are comfortable with, but to always look for those in need – those who have no idea how to perform prayer, or those who do not know what “syahadah” is all about.
Again, we are not living life with people we want to live with, yet there’s a sort of responsibility put on every man to build a strong bonding with understanding and love among us – to help and listen to each other.. we want a brotherhood to be formed, not a set of buddies who regularly meet..and leave.
“and remember Allah’s favour unto you: how ye were enemies and He made friendship between your hearts so that ye became as brothers by His grace..” (Alimran: 103)

I dont have to live in the best house to know i am blessed
I dont have to draw the reddest heart to know i am loved
I need to lie on my bed with gratitude in my heart
I need to beg for no more since i’ve got my part.
I always believe happiness isn’t commodity
but a constant search for purity
When everyone talks about wisdom and quality
It goes beyond what we have with the joy of body
It counts harmony and how spirit works for serenity.
At one point of my thoughts, i assert a lot
I think sometimes we have to disappear from people’s thoughts
So that we reappear in God’s knots.
My heart still beats with iman to enhance
That’s what i receive as Allah grants
How grateful i am to always get chance
There’s no way i should turn my faith around.

There have been laugh and fun. there have been mourn and cry, and curse and insult.. there have been jokes and pokes.
A first try to talk and greet..and to mingle and mix around. those time were sufficient enough allocated to build personality..the time when people were first let off to know what human are able to do.. about ability..
Personally, i’ve spent a long time discovering what im really good at.even for 22 years looking for the answer i dont think it helps me to find out. because i didnt actually discover. i went through the process of growing up accordingly to what it takes me to be, to go without really pondering on the significance and the options.
One who’s able to be IT literate exceeding the limit set, for instance, is not how i define ability. or perhaps being known all over the universe for the sayings they uttered, for the treatises they wrote, for the scientific formula they created.
Go back to the basic foundation, we can see everything is to do within limitation..thats where ability lies. i believe that moderation is set up by people who’re close to glory. they dont aim for praise and honour but the state of being moderate makes them be at the top of success.
I might stop thinking of people’s expectation after this, but i’ll continue pondering what’s going to happen if people keep pretending that they were never told about moderation and that the Judgement day is sort of doubt..
Allah knows best. waallahu’alam~
