as human....

ask ur friens to read this!

As humans, we are full of imperfections... 
But it is how we handle those imperfections, how we improve ourselves, how we fulfil our responsibilities as a servant and as a caliph in this world that matters in the end...

im human,im not perfect

I'm not the best servant of the Almighty God,

I'm not the best daughter,
I'm not the best friend,
I'm not the best leader,
I'm not the best follower,
I'm definitely no angel,
Who never does any wrong.

I have wronged. I have made mistakes. And sometimes I don't know how to go back to that place where everything was right. Sometimes I don't know how to make it right.
But... We try to do good, and try to show a good example as a human being, and do our best so that our flaws and wrongs aren't flaunted to the whole world, not so that people would think us an angel... Not so that we can be called a goody-two-shoes, but because of what the prophet reminded us a long time ago, and his words still prevail:

Siapa saja yang mencontohkan di dalam Islam contoh yang baik maka untuknya pahalanya dan pahala siapa saja yang melakukannya setelah dia karena mencontohnya tanpa berkurang pahala mereka sedikitpun. Siapa saja yang mencontohkan di dalam Islam contoh yang buruk maka atasnya dosanya dan dosa siapa saja yang melakukannya setelah dia karena mencontohnya tanpa berkurang dosa mereka sedikitpun. - HR Muslim, Ahmad, Ibn Majah dan An-Nasa'i

Dearest readers, if we understand these hadiths holistically, 
we would be very afraid to do any sins and show it to others, and create a very bad stock exchange and become very poor...
Instead, we would want to show others any good deed we can, so that if they do good just by following us, we would get the reward even if we didn't do it ourselves! Simply by showing a good deed and causing other people to do good as well, it would make us very rich indeed! Not rich here, but in akhirah insyaAllah...
But of course, we must remember that we do good only for Allah and no one else... We try to be a good example not because we want people's approval, but because we want Allah's blessing in our lives.
Allah is our Creator, He knows us more than we do. He knows that we are always forgetful and sometimes disobedient in obeying Him.
But He asks us to hide it, don't show it to others, because the nature of humans, we tend to follow things that happen around us.
If we don't hold tight to our two sources, the Quran and Sunnah, we can easily stray, we can easily follow whatever we see, no matter it is wrong or right, since our minds isn't limitless. It has its shortcomings..
That's why we are asked to hide our aib from other people... We don't only have a responsibility to hide other people's aib, but we have a duty to honor ourselves, and protect our aib and not show it to others...
Because realise it or not, showing a bad example in Islam to other people is as if we are no longer ashamed of our wrongs. What if others follow us? Nauzubillah...

a chance
Sometimes, we just need to give ourselves a chance.
A chance to live.
a chance to change to be better.
A chance to return to who we truly are.
A chance to return to fitrah...
We continue to move on because we have that hope...
The hope that He promised us.
Even though we always forget him,
Even though He isn't the one we put first on the list,
that hope is always there whenever we seek it.
