?????? I Want to Believe (as if i want)

hmm...i keep wondering from time to time...why our people keep believing things that are very vague and unproven in front of our 2 tiny eyes...they quickly give up their faith in Allah that only Allah has the power to control this phenomenon and not human...

what i'm babbling about is non other than the 'mystical' chain-letter...for example:

1. seorang saudara bombay telah menerima wasiat ini dan beliau telah mencetak 20 salinan dan mengirimkan kepada orang lain. Ia kemudia dianugerahi Allah dengan mendapat keuntungan besar dalam perniagaannya. 2. seorang hamba Allah telah menerima wasiat serupa tetapi tidak mengindahkannya dan menggangap wasiat ini adalah palsu, maka selang beberapa lama anaknya meninggal dunia

this is only part of the post that i always been receiving since the past few years...through Friendster message and bulletin and through the e-mail...what i understand about the true purpose of the original author of the whole story are:

  • want people to pray for him/her own good. (but through wrong way)
  • want to attract people's symphaty. (yeah right...)
  • want to make people believe their story is true. (don't make me laugh)
  • well at least threaten people to believe them. (through ambiguos threat such as your son will die or something that sewaktu dengannya)
  • using the Holy matter such as the name of Prophet Muhammad and Allah.
well, to make me believe in such matter will take a lot of effort...i can see through lies for i've been lied for countless times...no such things as forcing people to do this and that and the God will smite you if you don't...even if you don't help, nothing will happen to you, unless if the matter is under the wajib-to-do things...people must clear their minds and thoughts of these ambiguos case that can shake the very foundation of your aqidah and iman...

wallahualam...

for me , this is quite serious...it involves our faith...for me, those things should not be treated because there is no concrete proves or dalil...it is not even a fatwa...

i just wonder why people keep believing on this matter...maybe because certain people make use of religious words or figures (Allah, Muhammad etc) contribute to this problem...using these things does not mean it is true,man...

my advice, just follow the right path...
