So now here I am in front of my laptop, deleting songs. It was pretty hard as I always feel really connected to the songs I listen to. Bye Babyface, BoyzIIMen, Lionel Richie, Earth Wind and Fire, K-Ci and Jojo, Patrick Stump..the last song I listened to was Last Night's Letter by K-Ci and Jojo if I'm not mistaken. Whatever it is, adios!
oh sad but yeahh
I had this thing going on in my head for quite some time already, but I kinda ignore it. But what inspired me the most was the fact that there are lots and lots of musicians out there that gave up music, though music was their passion, their lifestyle. While here I am just a listener, know nothing about music but still have a harder time to let it go. I feel so weak watching them in their jihad. Muslim Belal even starts rapping with no music, UK Apache or Abdul Wahab too stopped music, Masikah Feesabilillah too stopped music. So many people stopped so why not me? I'm a Muslim too..
I was watching a video of Masikah and SubhanaAllah i haven't been more inspired. As he said 'music is like fitna to me'. And an older man was telling him how he's putting Jannah at risk for doing music.
Some people believe that we can't change ourselves overnight. So some people might say you can start by listening to less music. But I believe that if there's a strong will, anything is possible if Allah wills it. Yes giving up music is really hard, but I'm doing it for my Lord, my deen, my faith. There's a reward for being patient and for the jihad of the nafs. So this is my jihad. Maybe some will cal me outdated and ask me to be more open minded..There are too many arguments and discussions about how music is haram and whatnot, and some believe thats its halal as long as you don't go astray, wallahua'lam, but i just wanna be on the safe side, I'm just a weak slave spending my last hours or maybe minutes on this earth so why not do my best?
The regret I may face on the day of Judgement will never be worth the fun..
