Bijaksanakah Menyebarluaskan Berita Orang yang Baru Pindah Agama?

Posted on: April 9, 2017

Apa yang kita rasakan saat melihat orang dari agama lain berpindah memeluk agama yang juga kita yakini? Bangga, haru, tersentuh… Tapi bagaimana rasanya jika kita melihat kejadian yang sebaliknya? Seseorang dari agama kita berganti meyakini agama lainnya? Marah, kesal, kecewa?

Jika kita tidak suka melihat orang lain keluar dari agama kita, maka menurut gue, sebaiknya tidak perlu ikut menyebarluaskan berita, gambar, atau video orang lain yang baru saja memeluk agama kita. Jangan merusak tali persaudaraan antar agama dengan sesuatu yang tidak begitu jelas apa manfaatnya.

Berpindah agama, kenyataannya, tidak semudah yang terlihat di video 30 detik. Ada orang tua dan anggota keluarga lainnya yang merasa kecewa. Ada teman-teman dan tetangga yang memandangnya sebelah mata. Ada konflik batin yang luar biasa sebelum akhirnya seseorang memutuskan untuk mengganti sesuatu yang dia yakini bertahun-tahun lamanya. Dan umumnya, mereka tidak menyukai publikasi yang berlebihan. Kenapa? Karena mereka tidak mau menyakiti perasaan orang-orang dengan agama yang mereka tinggalkan… Jika mereka saja enggan untuk menyebarluaskan, kenapa malah kita yang lebih semangat untuk sharing sana-sini?

Jangan pernah berpikir bahwa siapa tahu, berita yang kita sebarkan itu akan “mengilhami” orang lain untuk ikut memeluk agama yang kita yakini kebenarannya. Berpindah keyakinan sama sekai tidak sesederhana itu! Keyakinan tidak datang dari sekadar berita pendek, keyakinan datang dari dalam diri sendiri. Dari pembelajaran yang bisa jadi sudah berlangsung bertahun-tahun lamanya. Jadi sekali lagi, sebelum berbagi berita yang kontroversial seperti itu, tanya kembali pada diri kita sendiri… apa manfaatnya? Jika efek negatifnya lebih banyak dari manfaatnya, maka sebaiknya, jangan dilakukan.

Selain masalah publikasi, menurut gue, akan lebih baik lagi jika kita tidak meributkan keputusan seseorang terkait agama yang dipeluknya. Agama adalah urusan masing-masing orang, dan kita harus bisa menghargai keputusan mereka, sama seperti kita ingin dihargai sebagai orang yang tetap meyakini agama kita sendiri.

I’m not a funny person. I’m not good at mingle with random people. I’m fierce, I’m a straight-talker, I get annoyed easily, and I have this resting b face that makes me look angry all the times. I’m not that kind of person whom people would miss when I’m not around.
But you know what?
I’m okay with all that flaws I have in me. Nobody is perfect, and neither am I. At the same time; everyone on earth is special, and so am I.
I know my worth. I know what I’m very good at. I know what I want and I work hard to make it happen. I’m a go getter and I fight my battles. I’m not an angel, but I’m not a devil either.
I was born to be the very best of myself, and just because I don’t always have what others have, it doens’t make me less as a person inside out. I’m whole just the way I am, and I’m beyond grateful of all that. I know that my career has been a bit of trouble for my personal life. I admit that it feels like a loss to me sometimes, but you know what? I don’t feel sorry about all that, not a even just a little bit.
My career has given me a comfort bed to sleep, taken me to the places I’ve never seen, brought me to the incredible people who end up as my best friends, and most importantly, it has really made my parents proud. I can sleep tight at night knowing that at least, I can support my parents after their retirements.
The way I see it, there’s nothing bad about all that, so why should anybody in my position feel sorry and less proud about their own hard works?
Don’t let anybody make you feel less than who you are. Make yourself and your loved ones proud, and for me, the rest doesn’t matter at all.
Be great, women! Whatever you choose to do for your own life, be great at it and don’t feel sorry for anything good in your life! Happy International Women’s day and stay awesome! My life has been going great in the past one month. Incredibly busy, but I can’t be happier.
I work my new job during the weekdays and work on my own start-up all over the weekends. It’s tiring and consuming all my energies, but it never feels like a hard work somehow.
I meet many people who are super friendly, I get to work with new challenges that test me every single thing I’ve learned in my entire career, and at the same times, I still manage to pursue my lifetime dream! For the first time ever, I understand how it feels like to love what I do that I never have to work a day in my life.
God, thank YOU for all these blessings! I often said I couldn’t ask for more, yet again, You gave me more and more reasons to be thankful over and over. I’m beyond blessed! Alhamdulillah.
