"Dan Kami telah menunjukkan kepadanya dua jalan
(jalan kebajikan dan jalan kejahatan)."
first off, i'd like to apologize beforehand, for this post i'm making yang akan berbaur judgmental. manusia. tipu siapa yang kata mereka tidak judgmental. because everyday, you have to judge what to do and what not to do. judgmental of the actions made (by you and others), but not judgemental of the individuals.
for example; someone raised his/her voice in front of his parents.
the right judgments made: tidak elok. a sinful act. (tegur terus, or doakan dia)
the wrong judgments: orang ni memang tak boleh pakai, kurang hajor @#$%^%&^*
so back to my post.
i find myself redirected to a malaysian blogger, younger than me, via an article about our Deen. it was a good reminder. so i continued looking around. only to find posts about fashion and styles, what she ate that day, how shopping is a good way to release stress, so on and so forth.
comments for each post, berpuluh-puluh.
liked by many.
one particular post that i regretfully read, was about her showing the differences between her face, with and without make-up. the point she's trying to make? wallahua'lam. the comments by readers? abundant. ranging from "cantik je" to...er, "cantik sangat."
anyways, what amazes me most is of course the amount of followers it has. it made me realize how large the blogging community is (Malaysian teens specifically speaking.) and yet, these kinds of blogs are what attracts them the most. discussing superficial things, of nothing that will leave that strong deep impact in your heart.
if followers are what we are looking for, then i guess we all know what we should be babbling about in our blogs. for me, i know there's a whole bunch of stuff i can talk about in here;
like my collections of dresses and selendang, (cause it seems like the 'IT' thing nowadays);
from Zara, to H&M, to TopShop to Pashminas bought in Morocco etc
or my how-to to a healthy lifestyle;
from doing weights to eating dates to psychogenic water drinking.
or of the places that i have been to;
Morocco Paris London Barcelona Andalucia Scotland bla bla.
or of the daily beauty regimens;
from facial wash, shampoo, uses of olive oil and all the good stuff.
my point here is that, truthfully, i and so many out there, are just normal girls too. we all lead a similar life of many those out there. thinking of clothes to wear, loving all the pretty stuff, wanting to eat properly so not to be chubby etc. we all have the options of telling these all through our blogs, but we just don't. why? because for me, everytime i wanted to write in here, there is this simple question;
which one weighs more for my Akhirat account?
that long post about my prettiest collection of dresses and skirts;
or a single post reflecting about a hadith or a verse in the Quran?
we all know the answer to that, insyaAllah.
but of course, i too am having problems about this. (kalau tak takde la post ntah pape before this =,=''). but it's okay, because that is an ujian that Allah has prepared for every single moment that we have in our lives. of choosing between two things. some things are obvious, when it comes to choosing between Bad and Good. but the hardest ones are always choosing between the Good, Better, and the Best. and sadly enough we rarely choose the Best, because it will always be the hardest thing to do.
as of blogging, of course it's a great feeling to have people following your blog and positive comments about it. it's always a confidence booster. but in the end, the vital question is always this, are we pleasing others, or pleasing Him?
blogging about beauty, fashion, gossips;
is always something that we can do, but we just choose not to.
sebab bila campur tolak tambah,
what benefit can we bring with us to akhirat,
when we talk about colour-matching clothes?
