Okay, I am officially going to write my first ever rant post. Usually I'm all positive and happy in my blog posts but today's one will be an exception and hopefully it will be the first and last brouhaha you'll ever hear from me.
Lately I've been questioning whether I should continue blogging or not. It's not that I'm getting bored or unmotivated but simply because I am so put off by some people's attitudes. I didn't start this blog to create trouble for myself or my family. I did it for the love of writing and connecting with others.
So here's the deal with why I'm so upset. There are people out there who do not have good intentions towards my family. These people were once guests in our home, so-called family even. But the trust was gone after we found out the truth about them. I can't believe the same people who preached night and day about Islam were the same ones who would stab us in the back and practice things that are haraam. Oh yes, I've learned that those who are always talking about Islam are sometimes the ones you have to be most careful of. They only speak words of faith yet their actions don't match what they claim to believe. I am sickened by such people. So the ties were cut and life went on as usual. I thought that was the end of it but as usual, it never is.
These people are now following my blog. My guess is that they're trying to get some sort of insight into what my family is up to, how we're doing, etc. They have even tried using fake Facebook profiles in order to get me to add them. They e-mailed me with different e-mail addresses to find out personal information. I've stopped blogging about my family because I don't want to jeopardise their privacy and security. I wouldn't do anything to put my family's safety at risk.
I've told these people to stop e-mailing me or trying to add me on Facebook because every single time it happens I know who is behind it. They have been doing this for the past 8 months or so and they make it so obvious! In some of their fake Facebook profiles they even put up their real photos. Different names but same faces. Yesterday I received another friend request from them and it just made me feel so disappointed that they are still at it. I mean, if you're going to create fake identities at least be creative! Or why not do something even better...
Stop trying to disrupt our lives. We haven't done anything to you. If you truly believe in God as you claim you do, then for the love of God please just move on with your life and focus on doing good instead of doing what displeases God. And for the last time, stop trying to add me on Facebook because I don't add people I don't know anyway. Just give it up because life is too short for you to be wasting it on this meaningless and fruitless chase. Most importantly, bertaubatlah.
I don't understand why some people just don't like the sight of other people's happiness. Why do Muslims hurt one another? Why can't they practice Islam the same way they talk so proudly about it? Nobody's perfect but why boast about how much you know and what you do while you practice what is haraam?
No, I'm not going to quit blogging because of them. I'm not going to stop doing what I love because of a few bad apples. I've said what I wanted to say and tomorrow will be a brand new day.
To my innocent readers, I'm sorry you had to read all that but it had to be done. Good night.
EDIT: Oh my God you guys, this is sooo freaky. I just saw bits of one of the girls' blog and she has actually copied some of my blog content and published it as hers. She even copied my blog profile! How creepy is that?! What on earth is her motive???
