Carried Cherry Belle's Faith

The virtual world suddenly fussed with the appearance of an account @AgamaChibi. Akun yang mengatasnamakan girlband yang sedang naik daun dan menjadi pujaan remaja, anak-anak bahkan ibu rumah tangga; Cherry Belle. Tak hanya akun Twitter namun juga ditemukan akun Facebook "Cherrybelle Tuhan Semesta alam" dan juga blog tuhancherrybelle.blogspot.com.

This Twitter account, which has 731 followers, first tweeted on March 26, 2012 and the admin introduced himself under the name Nurjanah Rokhimah. And of course the twit involves a variety of strange and absurd things. One example is the following tweet, "MY GOD IS @Academic NOT THE OTHER BECAUSE THERE IS A HOLY WOMAN WHO DOES NOT HAVE SIN, THEN GET MY SIN."

This "religion" considers the members of Cherry Belle as god, Twibi as a book, Twibimahayana as the name of the people, Chibi Adha as a holiday. If we are smart and have faith, of course all this is unreasonable.

On Twitter, the @AgamaChibi account has drawn a lot of criticism. The owner of the @deadtrunk account writes, "Which make account @agamachibi pls do not go ahead, you do not know what you're dealing with, before the problem gets bigger, pls act smart."

Including Ustadz Jefri Al-Bukhari, via his Twitter account also gently reprimanded, "Bust my little ones dear ... Don't play with religion, let alone call and call smash, cherrybelle with God's call, remember ... God is holy".

Like competing, another similar account goes wrong, @agama_smash. Almost like @AgamaChibi, this account also considers Smash as a religion and its personnel are gods.

Making the artist as a religion is certainly a deviant and misleading thought. It certainly triggers opposition. Previously, Argentine soccer legend Diego Armando Maradona was also considered a 'god'. Even his followers have built a Church called Iglesia Maradoniana in Rosario, Argentina. It is said, 'his people' reached 15,000 people around the world.

Starting from admiration then becoming a worship, if left new religions will continue to emerge. The charm of the star will cause a heartfelt love to shift the presence of God in the heart. Allah has spoken in the letter of Al-Baqarah verse 165, "And among men there are those who worship rivalry other than Allah, they love him, as they love Allah. As for the believers, they love God."

This phenomenon should awaken us who are so idolized. Maybe we never intend to hug agama Cherry Belle, misalkan, namun jika kecintaan kita pada Cherry Belle melibihi kecintaan pada Allah, sudah pasti kita telah terjebak pada syirik mahabbah yang termasuk dalam syirik akbar.
