Rasulullah & Facebook

[Event has ended]
Sat, 12 May 2012, 8.30pm | English

Fees: Free admission

A chit-chat, lepak one corner session on the coolest Man that has walked the earth and the most popular social networking site which has affected life in various ways.


I WALKED INTO A MOSQUE for a lesson on Rasulullah's life and met two youth (only a year or two younger than me). While waiting for our class to begin, I took out my iPhone to "check in" via Facebook.

The two kids were suprised that I have one asked if they could add me in facebook. I agreed and accepted their friends request. The two kids then viewed my facebook wall via their own iPod. He, along with most of the other youth, finds it weird that my Facebook account is not privatised which allow public to view it freely. I don't feel my facebook contents needs to be hidden. I try to live my life correctly and justify my actions (I know they can't be hidden from Allah)

The kids continued browsing my profile. Before they came to the "favourite music" section, the other of the two youth quickly quips "He doesn't like any music." Apparently, as an older, somewhat role model type, they have this idealist image of me. The kid scroll on the music section, and finds over 500 songs. Pure amazement. What even hits him harder is when he looks through the list; strangely, he doesn't know a single piece of songs listed on my facebook profile. Granted, he disregards about 114 "songs" beginning with "Al-" that were Qur'anic surahs (and a large set were also songs about Prophet Muhammad which is best known as Qasidah). I also do have songs about peace, blessing and universal love from western artiste.
The kid searches through and through, remarking to me, "You have absolutely no songs on here at all."

I smiled.

The point is that the Muslim youth need to see that being "religious" (like I guess they percieve me, as I strive to be) does not entail one alienating themselves from all affairs of this world (ex, creative arts, sports, or any other worldly outlet). The true moderate Muslim always lies somewhere in the middle.

I may be wrong about this....

but definitely our facebook wall is a complex that I feel represents an individual.

So... how does your facebook wall potrays YOU?
