Bismillah ar-Rahman ar-Raheem
Assalammualaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuhu

I had a chat with my father a few days ago
And he raised a very good question
Why is it that we always question and scrutinize people who (try to) do good deeds rather than encouraging them? And what is more weird and funny is the fact that we did not try to emulate the good deeds but create 'logical' reasons to feed our ignorance and heedlessness.
And there are so many (other) people doing all the bad deeds and emulating sins from others around us but we did not even bat an eyelid (let alone try to excercise the sunnah of amar ma'ruf nahi mungkar - refraining sins and encouraging goodness).
I agreed with my father because iman is something that you feel and is so abstract that logical reasonings are not applicable to explain the feeling of the sweetness of iman. And if these commentators don't have any 'ilm on what they are commenting on, they should know better than commenting bluntly without understanding why others do it.

Astaghfirullah hal azheem

Welcome to the confused and secular society
Where we are the product of liberalism and secularism without us realizing it

Because, if we don't understand something
We should seek the answers in the right manner
(and the right intention)
And sometimes we'll never get the answers
Because our mind and soul are not ready yet to experience it
Whether we like it or not

But we should never stop seeking with sincere intentions
Because it will lead us to the truth
And the hikmah of Allah's creations and answers to all its mysteries
And then, will only you understand and feel the sweetness of iman and the meaning of brother/sisterhood in islam

(P/S: I am talking about people's ignorance of the religion and how sometimes when people says something bad about their brothers and sisters in islam who are trying to practice islam - though there might be some weakness here and there, they are actually mocking their deen without realizing it. And this is a reminder to myself too, who is not free of sins and is has many weakness)

And I am saying this not to offend anyone, but because I love my brothers and sisters in islam, and I want them to understand that in islam, when you love, you love people just like how you love yourselves. And I do love all of you for the sake of Allah.

All praise be to Allah, Lord of the Universe
