dear MukaBuku. of late, you scared me more often than i wished for. :'(
where we spend hours just changing our profile pictures.
looking for that perfect angle, perfect scenery behind,
accentuating that perfect jawline, the new red dress, the new style of Hijab.
we bought expensive DSLRs or Lomos,
to take beautiful pictures,
perhaps telling the world where we went to,
perhaps telling the world how great we are at taking pictures,
perhaps just to make us a little more prettier than those digicameras we had before.
we clicked 'Add Friend',
hoping to read the hadith they shared,
the articles they read, the bits here and there;
yet one day that 'Salam' popped up.
the next thing we know,
we sent smileys here, and smileys there.
still read the hadiths, still read those articles,
but now reading more into their profiles,
looking more into their pictures,
and we got ourselves lost in the so called Cinta MukaBuku.
i wonder, i seriously wonder;
will we be questioned,
for all the pictures that we have seen;
of friends not covering their aurat,
of friends posting curse words,
of friends touching non-mahrams;
and yet we continued scrolling down at News Feed.
dare not to care about them,
let alone say something to them.
many have also realized that we can use you the right way.
but i guess syaitonirojim is way ahead of us.
we say we are doing amar makruf nahi munkar,
yet most of the time we are downgrading others.
we say we are telling others the truth,
yet we are embarrassing them openly instead,
disregarding their reasons, their backgrounds and such.
all because, we thought we are doing what's right.
i'm scared, i'm seriously scared.
when we can read almost anything, about everything.
not knowing enough,
yet we are telling the whole world about that everything.
there are always two sides of a coin,
yet we never stop for a second to flip it over;
too eager to click that Share button.
what if they are all lies?
what if they are all accusations?
just a click away, and we're part of them.
how easy it is to carry those overflowing sins;
with just that one click.
sedar atau tanpa sedar;
mostly the latter.
These are all mistakes you and i make.
over and over again, whenever we forget.
and sadly, these are just some few examples;
we all can think on our own for what the others are.
we should all be scared of MukaBuku really,
because it's a great medium with so many subtle tricks used by syaitonirojim,
unless; we renew our intentions everytime.
susah. memang susah.
that's why we all have to be reminded again and again.
me, you and everyone else.
because sadly, we are meant to forget more often than we wished for.
praying Allah redhai semua;
niat, kata-kata, dan amalan kita.
