Yoga... (@.@)

=.="

I never knew this would be as chronic as it is now...

Yoga....the people were arguing about the validity to perform it among the muslims...ugh...suddenly i felt like someone had succeeded in sniping me from far far away...what am i talking about...cut the crap... ( =.=")
the news on Yoga is not suitable for the muslims was newly aired through the media...weeks berfore the incident, me and my group, made an awareness campaign on promoting Yoga as a healthy lifestyle and it was quite a huge success among my classmates...many of them wore our group's trademark souvenir; a nametag printed YOGA on each of them... (^-^)
they said that yoga is against Islam as the objective of yoga is to be free from everything (as they said it) and be one with the God or something like Nirvana...well...i have to agree to them in this matter, and i also have to disagree on them too! (>.<)

as my group had been assigned this campaign for months before the news on forbidding yoga had came up...so we had conducted countless research on yoga, although a bit rushy...but as we got involved deeper into the project, we had learnt quite something about yoga itself...yoga, as a matter of fact, also did not focus on being free from this world....yoga is just simple a light/medium body stretching act that when i did it, i just felt the same like i did on any other stretching activity...i never thought that yoga would lead to separating myself from Allah and be with the hindu Gods...i never acknowledge that there were other Gods other than Allah...

I hope the 'Majlis Fatwa' can resolve this problem as soon as possible...Amin...

Every people has the same God; Allah. They just don't realize yet unlike the Muslims...

it's true that yoga is just an exercise..maybe the fatwa counsel sees it from a very different view...don't worry...if u feel guilty about promoting something prohibited in Islam before u knowing it, it's ok...it's still not a huge sin because u are not intended to...

besides yoga, i think there are many kinds of exercise there that u can practice...not only yoga...even solat can be considered as an exercise...

for me..it is illegal if yoga is practiced with diff gender which is of course, not our muhrim. so, the safest way is to do yoga by your own and if not, in a group of the same gender. that will raise up no problems.rytt??

nyway, practice yoga a healthy way of life.

YOGA!
