Assalamualaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh.
Dear failed MBA applicants,
I know it’s a tad frustrating to not succeed in getting yourself registered here as an MBA Blogger!
The main reasons why you find your application thrashed is because you simply sent in an application without bothering to include your details and even the address of your blog?
How do you expect the MBA administrator to know who you are and what you blog about?
Our guidelines are so crystal clear and simple. We do not ask you to dance the tango or fight a bull in order to be an MBA blogger.
No sirree. Our application procedures are so easy that a primary school going kid can handle it without any problems.
But no! You have to overlook the fact that to be a member of any organization, you do have to fill in the blanks and tell us about yourself.
Even if you claim to be this or that superstar, we still need to see some ID or in blogospeak, your url address, senor or senora?
How did you fail to read this page?
Applying to be an MBA Blogger is not like studying for a PhD!
All you have to do is to provide us with the following details:
- Full name as in your identity cards or passport
- Full blog address
- Email address
- Contact Mobile Number
- A photograph showing your face not an icon or avatar or John Travolta’s! 😛
Assalamualaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh.
I pray that each and everyone of you are in the best of Iman, Amal and Healthy both in body and soul. Insya Allah.
The topic above is referred to.
Lately, I notice that there are just so many local Malaysian blogs which dwell on matters that border upon or are entirely engaged in the spreading of fitnah or gnanimah which is haram in Islam.
Most of these writers who call themselves as sopo bloggers seem oblivious to the harm that they are doing not only to our Malaysian society including the Ummah but also to themselves and their families.
I wonder why they fail to realize that each word they type and publish that concerns anyone person or group will be taken into account by Allahu Ta’ala when they do pass away from this earthly existence into the Realm of Al Barzakh?
Surely, being bloggers they warrant at least to be in possession of the powers to consider the various implications of publishing content onto the public online platform of information that is the worldwide web?
Being a blogger does not mean one can simply write as one pleases and go attack someone willfully without rhyme or reason and then act as if one’s infallible.
It doesn’t make sense for one who can put words into order to fail to understand the religious, social and moral responsibilities that goes with the position that one chooses to be as a blogger who publishes his or her material into the internet’s archives.
Yes. Whether one is conscious or not, each and every article or comment is archived immediately into the internet’s archives and burned into the hard disks of the internet service servers one is subscribed to. That’s hard evidence which can be traced all the way back to one’s internet access account here on earth and in reality, one’s personal Book of Deeds in the spiritual realm of one’s being.
The Book of Deeds that keeps each and every deed that we do is incorruptible and untamperable by us unless we totally and truly repent in the very sense of the act.
The so called SOPO bloggers here in Malaysia seem to be having a field day in thrashing the reputation and characters of their intended targets with no sense of fear of the repercussions that awaits them in the Yaum al Akhirat if not the Yaum al Barzakh that each and everyone of us will definitely enter one of these days?
Are we not Muslims who are aware of the implications of reckless blogging?
Those who spew lies and untruths in each and every publishing of theirs without fail seem to be clueless and totally ignorant of all of Allahu Ta’ala’s grave warnings to us?
Astaghfirullah hal adzhim!
Why is this so?
Are we still in the Yaum al Jahilliyyah claiming ignorance of this and that?
Truly we aren’t!
But why do these bloggers blatantly dare to abuse the trust that Allahu Ta’ala placed upon them to uphold the truth and enjoin others to goodness and join forces to combat the evil of this temporal earthly life?
Woe (waylun: an expression implying chastisement) to every backbiter, [who is a] slanderer, frequently engaging in backbiting and slander, that is to say, defamation — this was revealed regarding those who slandered the Prophet (s) and the believers, the likes of Umayya b. Khalaf, al-Walīd b. al-Mughīra and others
Truly, Malaysian Muslim bloggers can be better than the cartoon characters depicted here?
May Allah guide us all.

I came across this article in the blog of brother Firdaus, Strategic Advisor to PERKIM KL.
I congratulate Brother Firdaus for his insightful outlook as to the consequences to the Catholic Church of Malaysia’s insistence that they be allowed to publish their Herald Magazine in the Malay language using ‘Allah’ as the name of their ‘God’?
I wonder whether the Catholic Church will have the guts to change their ‘Bibles’ in English to have the word ‘Allah’ replacing the term ‘God’?
Thank you Brother Firdaus for raising this matter. May Allah the Almighty bless you.
The true Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala of course. 🙂
It is with sadness that I learn of a fellow Blogger and a member of The Muslim Bloggers Alliance @ Brother Bakaq of http://www.penarikbeca.blogspot.com has been arrested for sedition by the Malaysian Police.
He is known to be quite a simple man with no airs about him but he is a man with very strong principles and does not shy away from giving it to those who deserve it in their face – his points of view, of course!
Brother Bakaq is a straight talking guy who has not pulled any punches with anyone and has even tangled with yours truly before when we disagreed on certain issues with regards to street protests, etcetera.
We made up and have nothing but sincere admiration for each other’s commitment to see this nation be a better place for all and have almost similar interests and aspirations.
It seems that the police officers confiscated his laptop and handphone and are holding him at the Commercial Crimes Division at Bukit Perdana, just close to Bank Negara.
The word is out that there will be a gathering of fellow bloggers and supporters of Bakaq at the same place today at 2.00pm.
I just hope that the authorities will be treating Bakaq properly and release him safely once they are done with their investigations.
I know that we bloggers are a pain in the ass for the ruling BN but to come down to arresting bloggers just shows the level of desperation by the powers that be to stifle the spread of unedited information that is the hallmark of the Blogosphere.
The thing that our nation’s police need to consider is that we who are Malaysian Bloggers do play an important part in the dissemination of information to the online community.
Just like the mainstream media, we too serve our nation by publishing articles and reports that concern the wellbeing of our people.
Unlike the mainstream media, we do not make money by blogging tirelessly save for a few ringgits that are paid by advertisers such as Nuffnang, Google Adsense, Advertlets, etc.
Not even enough to pay for the internet service bills, mind you.
Yet, we do blog for the good of the nation and in my case, as a means for me to spread truthful information about Islam, Socio-political views and perspectives from my point of view.
Brother Bakaq is wellknown for his apolitical stand and although he comes across as a very strong supporter of PAS, he has also taken to tasks the PAS leaders for their errors and slip ups especially recently when PAS leaders were willing to hold muqabalah talks with UMNO!
I hear that Nasharudin Mat Isa, PAS Deputy President was quite pissed off with Bakaq for attacking his overtures to UMNO together with the likes of Mustafa Ali, etc.
I don’t quite know where Bakaq is said to be guilty of sedition but I hope that this arrest will be a temporary measure to learn about the truth of Bakaq’s publishings and that he will be accorded proper respect and treatment that he deserves as a true Malaysian citizen blogger?
May Allah SWT protect and bless Brother Bakaq from harm and see him released soon.
