i wanted to blog about this few days back but just couldnt find the time to do so. ahh... afternoon shifts causes no time to blog. :P

and i find it is a lucky thing that i didnt blog on the spot. being me, if i am feeling annoyed, i definitely will blog without thinking. i'll just shoot like AK-47.

so anyways, few days back, i was doing my usual blog hopping in my followed list. one of them is nurfaizshaidan. and there's this particular blogpost and caught my eye and then i felt annoyed. post titled Dialog dengan Kristian: Personally, this is not the way, with original post by muzafar51

at the beginning i am annoyed. very annoyed actually. and lucky thing i didnt have time to blog that time cos my fingers will do the typing without my brain thinking rationally. is this called blessing in disguise ah?

why am i annoyed?
i am not annoyed bcos of muz approaching people trying to spread the good news of ones religion. in this case, islam. i actually respect him for having the courage to just go up to a person and say "let's learn about islam". i am annoyed by the way he is pushing one person who is already rejecting politely.

it is like when u are happily minding your own business one fine day in a shopping mall and suddenly those people who promotes credit cards approach u and trying to sell to you the benefits of the particular bank's credit card. and then, u raise your hand and smiled rejecting politely. but they still follow you from behind or standing in front of you trying to sell it even harder. if it is me, my smile will turn to frown and tell them "do u understand i am not interested?'

in some scenarios, they still keep pushing *roll eyes* but mostly, they will back off.

so back to the blog war between 2 fellow malay bloggers.

firstly, i would like to apologise to muz for using words like 'wtf'. but that wtf is not for scolding anybody. not u, not faiz. it is just how i express myself. but if it is causing a pain to u, then ok. i apologise. im sorry.

i think what matters most is also respect. people respects your religion, therefore, respects others as well. and also respect other's decision to know more or not. i mean, there is definitely people who wish to know more about islam and would want to know better about islam. i think to deliver and spread to people who is interested to know is better, no?

how would u feel if the scenarion is the other way round? u r a strong believer in Islam and someone is trying to educate u about Christian and Jesus even after u have rejected politely.

and from the quotes :-
“Sesungguhnya Allah tidak mengubah apa yang ada pada sesuatu kaum sehingga mereka mengubah apa yang ada pada diri mereka sendiri.”

“Tidak ada paksaan dalam agama (Islam), kerana sesungguhnya telah nyata kebenaran (Islam) dari kesesatan (kufur). Oleh itu, sesiapa yang tidak percayakan Taghut, dan ia pula beriman kepada Allah, maka sesungguhnya ia telah berpegang kepada simpulan (tali ugama) yang teguh yang tidak akan putus. Dan (ingatlah), Allah Maha Mendengar, lagi Maha Mengetahui.”

correct me if i am wrong from the above quotes. it is saying that Allah didnt intend to change ones religion unless they themselves are willing to. and there is also no forcing in Islam. rite?

so... if i am correct with the above quote, so only if there's people around us who is willing to know more about Islam, then only educate them, no?

overall, muz is just doing good stuffs like spreading the love of Allah and faiz is just voicing out on the way approaching. muz oso know that the way he approaches is wrong and will improve on it.

end of story
