שמע ישראל ה' אלהינו ה' אחד
فمن كان يرجوا لقاء ربه فليعمل عملا صالحا ولا يشرك بعبادة ربه أحدا

Star Idol

Posted By Snow at 4/02/2013

First of all, I'm sorry. I truly am.

OK. So. Brace for it. I just wanna say... I don't really understand why society idolizes celebrities. Have you ever thought that, maybe if you love these celebs so much. You praise them, you spend so much time with stuffs about them, you buy their merchandizes, you long for a glimpse of them that maybe they can get paid just to appear in events. They're treated like the most glorious beings on earth...

That is their wonderful starry life. So. What are you, what do you get?

Isn't it like an illusion... you like them so much yet do they know you? & just imagine. Suddenly you're disfigured for life in an accident. Will your star idol be by your side? Will they spend money, time & love for you? If you die, will they accompany you in the grave?

on the face ·:.


So. Why do you idolize a stranger so much?

أهلكتم - أو قطعتم - ظهر الرجل
Narrated Abu Musa: The Prophet heard a man praising another man and he was exaggerating in his praise. The Prophet said (to him). "You have destroyed (or cut) the back of the man." [Sahih Bukhari, Vol 8 Book 73 Hadith 86]

أمرنا رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم
أن نحثي في وجوه المداحين التراب
Abu Ma'mar reported that a person lauded a ruler amongst the rulers and Miqdad began to throw dust upon him and he said: Allah's Messenger commanded us that we should throw dust upon the faces of those who shower too much praise. [Sahih Muslim, Book 42 Hadith 7142]

Do not flatter those in authority...
By such acts you demean yourself.

Caliph Umar al-Khattab [ref]
Please note the names of rock idols formerly belonged to pious men | QA

كلا سيكفرون بعبادتهم ويكونون عليهم ضدا
No! They will deny their worship of them
and will be against them as adversaries.
[Holy Quran 19:82]

... The names (of the idols) formerly belonged to some pious men of the people of Noah, and when they died Satan inspired their people to prepare and place idols at the places where they used to sit, and to call those idols by their names.

The people did so, but the idols were not worshipped till those people (who initiated them) had died and the origin of the idols had become obscure, whereupon people began worshipping them.

Then Satan would come to them in human form and would say: Don't you respond? And they would say: What do you order us? And he would command them to worship the idols but, in spite of this, they would have abundance of sustenance and lead comfortable lives... [Partial Sahih Muslim, Book 41 Hadith 7023]

Peace be upon you
