Lu pikir la sendiri!

Tiba-tiba rasa nak berbahasa kasar sikit. Kasar tapi cukup lembutkah hati kita bila memikirkan betapa rendahnya pandangan masyarakat pada umat Islam.

Media membawa imej negatif tentang Islam, Muslim tidak membawa peribadi Muslim, keindahan Islam cuba ditutupi oleh Muslim sendiri. Kemudian dok hingaq nak tegakkan Islam dan Melayu, tak mahu dijatuhkan oleh bangsa lain.. Sedangkan kita yang merosakkan nama Islam itu. Betulkan pegangan aqidahmu. Betulkan akhlakmu wahai Muslim.

Apalah yang diperjuangkan dengan bangsa, sedangkan Rasulullah saw pernah 'menyindir' bangsa Arab yang tidak akan hilang sikap bersuku bangsa mereka hingga akhir zaman. Kita nak jadi macam bangsa Arabkah?

Jom muhasabah diri.. Kita ni da jadi duta Islam belum?

Sesungguhnya solatku, ibadahku, hidupku,dan matiku hanya semata-mata bagi Allah, Tuhan semesta alam.
