The Cursing Muslim Blogger

I went blog walking this morning. Reading posts from random blogs, leaving comments (hoping that they will visit me back to my blog :lol:). And I couldn’t help it, some blogs saddened me. Some muslim and muslima cursing and cursing with no embarassment. I don’t know what points are they trying to make. 😥

I will not sorry for saying this. But the term : moderate muslim had been taken away too far. What is moderate muslim anyway? Muslims who follow sunna and stay away from sinful behaviour is not moderate? Muslims who tolerate sins are?

Well, excuse me, muslims are just muslims. Muslims behaviour towards Islam is like a blind man with his cane. A blind man can’t walk properly without his cane, a muslim can’t live properly without Islam. Muslims must be fanatics towards Islam. Muslims must follow sunna the best way they can. Nope, don’t be mistaken.

That’s right, people. Don’t be misguided. A man who controls his tongue, his steps, his gaze… is never an extremist. A man who follows The Prophet Muhammad will never be an extremist. Don’t let people make you believe that being a fanatic is bad! Whose example should we follow other than Rasulullah? Which guidance should we consider for our life if not Islam? How can WE as muslims not be fanatics towards our religion? How can a person who makes Islam looks stupid be moderate?! MODERATE how?

As I said, do not make islam looks stupid. Watch your words. If you are a muslim blogger, remember, people will judge Islam by your posts, your words. STOP CURSING! F-word, B-word, S-word must be censored. “But that’s how people talk nowadays…” Which people? Ask yourself, don’t you have the ability to make your point without cursing? Do you really want to take your muslim pride that low? How would you feel when a non muslim read your blog and begins to generalized other innocent muslims (from cursing) for your un-sensible behaviour?? Yes, sisters and brothers, wether we like it or not, Islam IS judged by what Muslims do.

Yes, you probably say, “we can’t control what other people’s think”. No, we can’t. But we can control ourselves. We can control what we type. How can we treat Allah subhana wa taala, who has been Forgiving, Loving, and Merciful, as a powerless King for the internet? Would you be that selfish, to let Islam and all muslims in trial for your words?

Too sad, to see a facility that has the power to help Islam grows is used to make Islam looks stupid and low. Please, don’t misunderstand me. I only post this because I’m trying to love Allah the best way I can.  And I love my brothers and sisters in Islam. Please stop cursing, if you can’t stop cursing, stop blogging for a while, or don’t use your muslim identity for your blog.

It is reported that Abû Hurayrah – May Allâh be pleased with him – used to say: Whoever does not think that his speech is part of his deeds and that his character is part of his religion will be destroyed without even realizing. [Ibn Abî Al-Dunyâ Dham Al-Kadhib wa Ahlî article 94]

Don’t be misunderstood. This post is also a reminder for me to watch what I type.

Wallahu alam bishawab..

      Wa alaykum salam..
      LOL honestly i dont remember which blog i was visiting and gave me the thoughts..
      But this is actually a motivation for me to watch mine, since I am a newbie 😉
      So, if I wanted to write, I’ll remember that I wrote this, so it will humiliate myself if dont control my words ..

      Thank you for coming 😀

    Salaam Alaikum Sister!! Love your blog! Mashallah! Thank you for the reminder about the language we use in our blogs. I am bad at that. Inshallah, I am doing better. Sometimes I get so caught up and “flip out”. The thing is, I am not like that in normal life so why on the blog?

    And one more question…What is a hijabi prostitute? hahah You have peaked my curiosity….

    but.. but.. Ree..
    I.. I.. I don’t blog… 😀
    Nice points.
    I dont read blogs a lot, but since you are (i love you, but you dont love me, sad..), i now read blogs and articles, and yes, some people try so hard to make their blogs ‘attractive’ by doing some non-Islamic things, but also trying to convince people that they are muslims..
    and have you seen blogs of somemuslim woman showing pics with them being not covered well?
    while wearing their scarf, they also wear super tight jeans and pose like miss universe, it’s just ridiculous!

    i’m a man, and trust me, you CAN’T be sexy with hijab. the whole hijabi-sexy thing is also misguided, by muslima fashionista.
    I will write you a mail on what is a defenition on hijabi-prostitute among guys (yes, there is another term you should know). Sorry, but you need toknow and write a post about it too.
    Till now, i dont really like to see girls with hijab, but i respect them.
    (this is a progress bcoz abot 8 years ago, i told you that : i hate you for wearing that thing) *forgive me, ree*

    Salam Alaikum, Ria!

    You raise an important aspect about Muslim bloggers. I completely agree. InshaAllah your post is a reminder to us all. Also the whole moderate Muslim thing. True Islam is moderate to begin with. To water it down only makes it something else. I have the same issue with how the word “fundamentalist” is used now. Shouldn’t we all be TRYING to be fundamentalist Muslims, in the true sense of the word?

    Thank you for stopping by my blog, and your sweet comment.

    Your posts are lovely and I hope to interact more with you, InshaAllah.

      Wa alaikum salam, Azra..

      That too, fundamentalist. How can it be bad?
      It seems like when we love our religion so much,people will think something is wrong with us. That is just WRONG!

      And your blog is awesome!
      You have an amazing talent!
      When I have time today or tomorrow, I will write you a mail, inshaAllah..
      I hope to interact with you more,too..

      xoxo

    asalamu aliakuam rialive,

    this was an awesome awesome post!! Jazaki Allah koli khair.

    I think a lot of bloggers forget that our posts can stay for years …(if not forever!) online. Some times, things happen ‘at the moment’ that may make us ‘angry’ (or what not) and people quickly ‘blog about it’. But we have to ask ourselves…

    “Would I want to come across this post 5 years from now”?

    “Do I want to answer Allah subhanoo Wa’ Tala about this post”? Do I want to face Him on the Day of Judgment?

    🙂

    *sorry for the looooooong comment!*

      wa alaikum salam Little Auntie..

      this happens too much, and it really is brings me to think that probably they think Allah does not have power in the internet..

      But we as muslims should remind each other 🙂

      THANK YOU for the long comment! 😀
