To do or not to do

The main purpose of a media would be to get the message across to as many people as possible.

However, media is widely been used to deceive as many people as possible.

Media is used to make as much money as possible by creating false happiness and empty dreams among viewers.

Media is used to program the minds of people to subscribe to the idea that they want you to subscribe to.

Media is able to do it, without having to give any reason at all.

Just watch, accept and follow.

Would it make a difference now if I want to use the media to get a sincere and truthful message across to as many people as possible?

Or will it likely be drowned among the media garbage.

That's the receiving part.

Then there is the creation and production part. Many challenges also in these - in trying to stick the original and noble intention.

Without falling into the norms of entertainment media - with no concern for the effect that every single word/act has on the audience.

Without being comfortable in becoming one of them. 

It's funny. You know how you watch movies and sometimes the thinkers try to draw a lesson from it or find the moral of the story.  I believe in most cases - only the writer is on the same wavelength.  Everyone else involved in the production sometimes have no idea what the whole story is about.  Maybe a few dedicated actors/actress may know.  But some I've worked with, had no idea - although they acted out the whole story.   While their fans praise/adore/love their acts and the person they are in the story.

So...  I don't know.  Sometimes it feels like the whole thing is fake and deceiving in itself.

Let's see if my mind and feelings will change about this later.

Rising Seas : Reducing land from it's outlying borders

 National Geographic - Rising Seas (reducing land from it's outlying borders)

Allahu akhbar. I was wondering how this ayat would materialise. Initially I wondered if it would be through war or occupation.

Every word of God proves true.

أَوَلَمْ يَرَوْا أَنَّا نَأْتِي الْأَرْضَ نَنقُصُهَا مِنْ أَطْرَافِهَا وَاللَّهُ يَحْكُمُ لَا مُعَقِّبَ لِحُكْمِهِ وَهُوَ سَرِيعُ الْحِسَابِ

"See they not that We gradually reduce the land (in their control) from its outlying borders? (Where) Allah commands, there is none to put back His Command: and He is swift in calling to account."

(Surah Ar-Rad 13:41
English translation by Yusuf Ali)

Use our intellect, our eyes and ears.
Submit to the One God before it's too late
i.e. before we die - don't know where or when.
