>tfw not good enough at poetry
That's why i'm learning arabic, i want to read poetry written by the scholars too they're pretty nice
That being said, indulging the heart's passions and desire for entertainment too much benefits no one.
>we have little to no media presence, what does that do for our Ummah?
I ask myself what the opposite would do for the Ummah. Practicing Islam (getting up early, not eating too much, holding one's tongue and lower one's gaze, not hurting others with words, not accepting shady money, etc) is all about disciplining the mind against the desires of the nafs. And this is not the path of passion and art imo, which is why I believe cultivating this inclination (too much) isn't beneficial.
Look what the media did to the world: all those who consoom it become mindless and weak-minded, don't let their hysterical mania impress you. They can't stand up for what they believe in precisely because they believe in nothing, they are moved not by conviction but by addiction and hedonism.
The emergence of social media dragged with it the spread of gyms and bodybuilding. It is nice that people are taking care of their health but for what purpose ? Insta selfies. Do we want muslims to pray more to get likes or to follow the latest cringeTok influencer ? Or should our practice be motivated only by the expectation of God's rewards and the gratefulness for his blessings ?
