Horoscopes

Current soundtrack: Turn Around (Samantha Jade)

Do you believe in horoscopes? Sometimes I checked whenever I stumbled upon the horoscope page in magazines, but recently I've been checking it daily through Friendster. And in most cases, the horoscopes were right about how my feelings were at that day.

Coincidence? Maybe. Still, it creeps me out.

Can we believe in it? When I was in school, there's some friends said it's a sin to believe it. It's like fortune teller. Is it? Well, it's not like I ask the horoscopes "when I'll be getting married" or "when will I die". It never tell that. And the horoscopes do provide some useful advice like go ask for help when your life feels unorganized (mine today). So, are we sinned if we follow it? And if the horoscope warned us that "some mishaps could happen today", are we sinned if we're extra careful for that day?

And how do millions of people who shared the same zodiac also shared the same advice? Horoscopes is based on the position of sun, stars, etc. and how does it relate to our birth dates? Hmm... seems ridiculous, is there a connection? But the Quran never mentioned it (I think). In fact, from a brief research through the net:

"Barangsiapa yang mempelajari ilmu dari bintang-bintang, bererti telah mempelajari salah satu cabang dari ilmu sihir. Semakin bertambah ilmunya, semakin dalam ia mempelajari sihir tersebut." (Riwayat Abu Daud)

Well, I know we'll still be checking our horoscopes whenever we found one. As long as we don't take it "seriously" and take it just as a general advice, like a friend's advice to another, I think it's OK.

tapi bila tenung bali riwayat abu daud tu... macam suspicious jugak kan. tapi kita pon tak pandai nak translate. faham apatah lagi. riwayat2 ni kdg2 bukan boleh ikut akal logik. kan...

Adian said...

tp riwayat tu kan himpunan sabda2 nabi. hmm topik yg pening. suh al kuliyyah jela bicarakan. huhu
