Why can’t you share?

“But perhaps you hate a thing and it is good for you; and perhaps you love a thing and it is bad for you. And Allah Knows, while you know not.” (Baqarah: 216)

Muslim means submitting to Allah’s will. If Allah has ordained it, I must accept it wholeheartedly. My love for Allah should be more than my love for my anyone else. Only then, can I completely accept Allah’s will. If there is a commandment that goes against my desires, then I must look deep within myself, strengthen my faith to correct my self. Allah makes no mistakes. He is perfect. His commandments are perfect. If I am not able to see the wisdom behind it, then its my fault.

It’s clear in Islam that a Muslim man or woman should love Allah and His Messenger the most, more than his family, more than his spouse, more than his kids and more than his own self and desires. If we fail to do so, our iman is severly lacking and we need to correct it.

Still insist to bring cases to religious court? Let me assure you that if you feel you do not want to share your husband, this has nothing to do with you being weak in personality or belief as a Muslim. The permissibly of having 4 wives in Islam was to take care of the issue of orphans at the time. Although by law a Muslim man may still marry up to four wives, by default God has made the foundation of a family based on one man (the husband) and one woman (the wife), otherwise He would have created 4 Eves for Adam!

Don’t talk about Islam if you’re not practicing it. Don’t judge people if you don’t know them very well n don’t ever think that you’re always perfect. Do not oppose Allah’s teachings. Do not reject them. If you have trouble following it, accept your own shortcoming. There is nothing wrong with Islam, what needs correction is your imaan. 🙂

But anyway, those are just my random thoughts. Not related with my personal life incidents at all. Cuma menyampah dengan netizen sahaja.
