The Holy Month has Ended

with 5 comments

No more formality. No more midnight shower. No more hunger and thirst for more than 12 hours. No more waking up at 3. 30 AM. No more no sleep because of a 7. 00 AM class. No more bad breathe. No more waiting. No more smokeless campus. No more 11 raka’at prayer. No more 14045 at 3. 30 AM. No more “Allahumma lakasumtu” and “nawaitu saumagodin”. No more a thousand stars night. No more acting holy in front of everyone. No more envy at those who eat, drink, and smoke. No more traffic before/at/after 6. 00 PM. No more no night club. No more no alcohol. At least until next year. Say no more.

In the mean time, there’s always time to forgive and forgave. Minal aidin wal faizin. Goodbye 1428 H, hello 1429 H. Let’s welcome it with a “bismillah”.

Religion: a Holy Thing or Just a Bunch of Bullshit?

with 9 comments

Religion. What do you think about that word? Me myself, do not even know the exact definition of this word. All I know is that religion has many different definitions depends on the people who talk about it. Some calls it holy and some even calls it bullshit. As for me, religion is God and God is religion. Don’t get me wrong, I always believe in God. If there’s no God, how an universe can be made? Is it just a process of a physical reaction? I don’t think so, because something as powerful as a physical reaction cannot even made something as big as an universe. If it is a physical reaction that made the universe, it’s God hands disguising His work as a physical reaction. Besides, in my point of view, there is no harm at believing in God, so why don’t you believe? Is it a matter of idealism? Is it a matter of curiousity? Is it a matter of prove? Do you still need those things if you got something big and powerful to hold on to?

I used to believe in one good religion, but as I got older my mind thinks in a very different way, I am not that easy to get convinced anymore, and as a result I grew unsure about my own religion. I just don’t know which one is right anymore.  I have my own way of thinking and I am a bit headstrong about it. But I am trying really hard to fix that problem.

To fix the problem that I mentioned above, I am trying to dig deeper about many religions, especially the one religion that I understand the most (clue: the religion has only one God and Mecca is the capital city of that religion). And as I dig deeper about those religions, I found a simple yet interesting and important quote in every religions, which is “God is merciful”. What does it mean? Of course that it means God is forgiving, but in what aspect? For me, it is in an aspect of freedom in choosing. Especially, in choosing what religion do you believe in the most. In my point of view, there will be no people that will be punish in hell because they chose the wrong religion. They fully believed those religions, so why punish them? At least, they have something powerful to control their life from falling apart. The one that will be punish is the one that doesn’t want to do what God tells them to do, like believing in Him, staying out of sinful things, do some praying, and many religion things. Now, that’s the hard part.
