Gamification

Me : "Gamification!"

You: "Errr....what?...." 


Me: "Gamification! it means the use of game thinking and game mechanics in non-game contexts to engage users in solving problems" (copy dari wiki lol)

You : " So?"

Me: "Believe it or not, Islam itself is a type of gamification process!..metaphorically speaking"

You : "No its not"


Ok intro agak over.

A simple word, but in a context which we actually can relate to this world. Gamification, to be more general, is a way of thinking derived from the way people play video games. Having a sense and desire of competition, achievement, self-expression, personal status, selflessness and closure.
In what way does that relate to life? 
Life itself is a competition, death is a closure, and all that comes in between it is a flunctuation of our everyday goals in life and the life hereafter. We struggle hard in this life, to develop those achievements, we express ourselves with any means possible, and we gain personal status just for the sake of improving to that closure. However nowadays we struggle too hard, just for the sake of our personal needs and greed that we forget- the biggest achievement towards this closure of life is by doing everything done for the sake of Allah سبحانه و تعالى..

So get your game face on now, n start moving



Life's a game?

What is the life of this world but amusment and play? but verily the Home in the Hereafter,- that is life indeed, if they but knew
