An Open Letter

Dear friends…


Firstly, I’d like to clarify.  That this letter is written, not of hatred.  Nor to spread lies in the net.  But because of love.  Love to you, as my friend, and also brothers and sisters in Islam, bonded by a bond that is stronger than any other ties, the bond of aqeedah.  Though it may be years since we last met, I still love you, for I had promised myself:  to love you, fillah, abadan abada

 

There are news that I heard.  No, not one, but tons.  No, not good news, but news which I am greatly saddened by.  What?  It is news upon news, one after another, of my friends finding ‘partners’ or perhaps… ‘love’.  No, not thru marriage, but by un-syara’ ways.

 

One thousand and one emotion surge thru me as I heard and witness them all. Anger?  Yes.  Hate?  Definitely.  No, not at you, my dear friends, but at those acts of disobedience to Allah that you had done.  Also to the syaitan that had successfully fooled you.

 

Please…  WAKE UP!!  Do not fall into syaitan’s trap.  Having a relationship with someone, declaring a guy/girl special is declared HARAM in Islam.  The ever-famous verse in the Quran, “La taqrabu zina” says it all.  “Do not come NEAR adultry”, Allah said.  Not “do not perform adultry”.  Hence even coming near adultry is haram, and staying away from it becomes WAJIB.

 

Sure, tons of arguments can be put up against it.  But remember, the saying is not mine, nor is it your mother’s, but it is the words of Allah, and thus it becomes MANDATORY.  Affirmitively, no arguments allowed.

 

 

Dear friends who I really care of…

 

We have been thought, undergo the process of self development (tarbiyyah) and learn Islam for so long…  but why did you still fall?  Did you not feel your iman criying inside?  Did you not notice that Allah seems far and out-of-reach, as you go along, being close to the opposite gender?

 

Remember, that a heart, if not watered by imaan, remembrance to Allah, and amalan soleh (good deeds), can wither and die.  Love for the world and going against Allah’s commands (ie doing ma’siah such as going out with a non-mahram, sms-ing and chatting on the phone/ online with him/her) are toxic, which will harden the heart, eventually resulting it to die.

 

Be careful, oh friends… be afraid… that one day, your cries for Him will not be heard.  Beware of the day, when you try to find Him, yet He is not there for you.  For then your heart has died (Nauzubillah!)
