Anyway I realised, that did you know that 2,500 good deeds are written in your book everytime you make a post on Yanabi.com? LAL no neither did I, because I just made that up, it's not a lie though because i've just admitted that i'm red-bulling ya'; the reason I said that is I just find that by starting your essay off with a authoratative fact always impressions the mind of the reader with a credibility for your post. Sorry i'm being silly.
Seriously though, i've been wondering about this, how do we in the contemporary aeon consolidate the postion of internet fora like yanabi.com with our Islam and pursuit of goodly and moral lives? For simplicity in understanding i'll talk from my point of view.
I come on here and usually try to concentrate on giving advice to lost souls in need of moral support and guidance, I soak it in wisdom, coat it in sophistry, arrange it in bite-sized pieces for people to take away, break down with their own spittle, make chewing easier and facilitate the digestion process; i'm wondering how this sits with God and my book of deeds; there's alot of people who come on here to specifically wield a 'petty power' from behind a screen (i'm not hating just stating); perhaps in the past i've crest-falled to such insidious idiocy; but i've certainly changed, if I was a character in a fairy-tale, i'd like to be 'Secret Santa'; decorate peoples lives on the sly without any praise or want of fame, but just a love of the game
I moderate here with well-intent, I know I perhaps step on peoples toes many atimes, but you can't be everyones cha na kap, or you just end up a mug, or if you're like my dad, then you drink tea out of a bloody peeli Khyber-ghee ni balti, mad-man LAL
Seriously, if I correct my intention, try to be upstanding and abrogate my personal motivations for the greater good of humanity, brothers, sisters, loved one's and enemies on here, then how is all this effort going to buttress me in the akhira, on the day of judgement? I really want to attain the pleasure of God and go to jannah, my hearts finally allowing this knowledge to suffuse in me.
p.s for those wondering, I did change my socks, they had a hole in them anway (how else could I slide my foot into them duh!!) Anyway, I was thinking about this last night and then when I fell asleep, I even had a dream, it was black...that's all, black just BLACK...it was spooky but enjoyable.
