on having the last laugh

I used to watch Spongebob Squarepants, and one of the things i remember most is the 'Fun Song' :

"F is for friends who do stuff together

U is for U and Me

N is for N-yone and N-ywhere at all

Down here in the deep blue sea"

Yesterday i accidentally switched to Facebook's Timeline, and i went all the way back to 2008 to do some, ehem, pruning.

So back to the Fun Song. Looking back to the year 2009 B.T (before tarbiyyah), i guess i had a lot of fun, in the way people normally think about fun. Playing games, hanging out, you know, all that stuff. 

(speaking about fun, i vividly remember the text message that pushed me into D&T: "biasalah tu, dah berseronok-seronok, siapa nak pergi program keagamaan!" -.-)

And people have this perception that when you enter D&T, fun is sucked away from you like teh o ais limau going down a straw on a hot day until you hear that 'shruuuushruuuu' sound. absolutely no fun left.

i beg to differ.

وَاعْتَصِمُوا بِحَبْلِ اللَّهِ جَمِيعًا وَلَا تَفَرَّقُوا وَاذْكُرُوا نِعْمَتَ اللَّهِ عَلَيْكُمْ إِذْ كُنْتُمْ أَعْدَاءً فَأَلَّفَ بَيْنَ قُلُوبِكُمْ فَأَصْبَحْتُمْ بِنِعْمَتِهِ إِخْوَانًا وَكُنْتُمْ عَلَى شَفَا حُفْرَةٍ مِنَ النَّارِ فَأَنْقَذَكُمْ مِنْهَا كَذَلِكَ يُبَيِّنُ اللَّهُ لَكُمْ آيَاتِهِ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَهْتَدُونَ
And hold fast, all of you together, to the Rope of Allâh, and be not divided among yourselves, and remember Allâh's Favour on you, for you were enemies one to another but He joined your hearts together, so that, by His Grace, you became brethren (in Islâmic Faith), and you were on the brink of a pit of Fire, and He saved you from it. Thus Allâh makes His Ayât clear to you, that you may be guided. (Ali Imran : 103)

What could be more fun than being saved from the pits of Fire? ngeeheee

There's a lot of fun in doing D&T. There's the fun in being able to get closer to perfection as a slave every single day.

There's the fun in having friends who bring you to heaven, rather than away from it.

There's the fun in being part of a renaissance project to create a change in the whole system of humanity.

And this is just on earth.

There's also the fun of being able to eat as much as you want without getting full.

There's the fun of having a palace of your own.

There's the fun of having angels as our companions. Angels who are similar in age and voluptuous (this is their actual description, not kidding)

Compared to these everlasting fun stuff, my previous fun is, frankly speaking, a joke. imagine this conversation:

You : O Allah, give me more time, i promise to do good.

Allah : i gave you time before. What did you use it for?

You : err, ermmm..just, you know, harmless games and other stuff..not so bad, but i wish i had something to help me now..

"F is for Friends who dakwah together

U is for U and Me

N is for N-yone and N-ywhere at all

We're all into D&T!!!!"
