"...I may not be able to change the world
I see around me....
I can change the way I see the world..
During the conflict of facebook I talked not to so much but few colleagues and found them incredibly unaware of the severity of the issue.
They shut me up by talking about "Freedom of Speech" and "Liberal act".
Once or twice I did think about it in my heart but than again that anger grow out of me from no where but I am definite it was deep in my heart.
This issue is bigger than so called Freedom of Speech and Liberalism.
This issue is bigger than us and our so called community in which we find pleasures and have freedom to meet anyone anytime.
It is not because I am showing off or over reacting or exaggerating the issue.
For God sake...we can't even think about drawing the picture of Muhammad (pbuh) and people are asking us to draw his (pbuh) cartoons?
I have decided to quit facebook as soon as Pakistan take back the ban from it. Though I can access it from my office but I want to do it when it has no ban on it at all.
Besides all its breaching of personal information and giving away the personal names or addresses to the advertisement companies...
I am quite firmed about deleting my account and I want to mark it on account of their failure of providing us (Muslim) the security and facilities to participate in the community without the danger of being attacked on our faith or believes.
It is advised by Allah as well to quit the company of those who don't talk nicely with you or taunt you on your faith even if they are your friends or family.
People might think of me as fanatic or hypocrite but I will let them cause I dam care what they think because I know they don't have time to think about me at all.
Talking about Migration of Muslims from Mecca to Medina or Migration of Muslims from India to Pakistan.
I think we are on same state and our turn has come to decide whether to remain where we get birth or have our childhood memories or to left the place to find new place where I may find better options to fulfill my needs and carry on with my beliefs easily and with freedom.
I know its quite a difficult position....cause I have been through this situation for few times in my life.
When my father has to leave one place to other because of his postings from one city to other in job. We had to pack up and to leaving so many things behind sometimes made me so sad. We couldn't make friends easily because we didn't know how much time we going to spend at one place and thus was afraid to make any strong relationship with any stranger.
So most of the time I remain stranger to so many girls in the class and to teachers. I never collected so many things because most of the time my mother has to leave things behind cause of the heavy weight of suit cases.
But now I think that situation was much better as we already knew that sooner or later we had to go.
What about those who didn't know about leaving and suddenly - they have to.
And most hateful part is that you want to migrate because of anger or threat either of your life or your faith....hmm...means they didn't have any choice.
They travelled long way on the red hot sand with no water and tree in sight. They travelled without money or food with them.
Most of them were poor and nobody has promised them for the good future where ever they were going but they continued...what was the force driving them was the love of their beloved (pbuh).
Most of them were weak and illiterate and they always listen to what their heart has to say to them...they always let their heart talk to them...they never shut their ears from their heart and thus their heart demanded to leave the place where they cant find peace and freedom.
They found peace in taking Allah name and talking about HIM. They find peace standing behind or besides HIS messenger(pbuh).
They first time taste love and care from SOMEONE who had been always upon them but they never tried to see or seek.
Allah has granted them the art of reasoning of facts and figures but they didn't tried that art before. They had forget and don't know how to revive whatever they had forgotten.
Messenger(pbuh) bring their memory back to them. And they understands the reasons of being lowest of low.
Messenger (pbuh) told them how to praise and make ALLAH happy.
Did he (pbuh) asked anything in return? Did he ever commanded or asked for any favour? His(pbuh) shyness and humility made him (pbuh) more famous and everyone come closer to him (pbuh) once came in contact.
What give them surety that if they leave their birth place and went to where their beloved(pbuh) gone would be the good decision?
No one ! But they continued...why because they loved him (pbuh).
And thus the love of (pbuh) brought peace and tranquility to muslims of Medina and migrants of Mecca.
I am not sure how I am gonna relate my leaving "facebook", as I don't have anywhere else to go. It is like I am out of sphere of world and now I am out of gravity. It is up to the space now where it took me and what planet it land me.
But I am not afraid cause 1) I am doing it cause of my faith and beliefs; 2) I respect my beloved Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) and don't want any company where I may find people making fun of him (pbuh); 3) My heart told me to do so...
hmm... So I am quiting facebook : http://www.quitfacebookday.com/
