Dr. Zakir Naik ~ Why some Non Muslims & ‘Religious’ Minister fear him.

Dr. Zakir Abdul Karim Naik

He is feared by the new Malaysian Minister in the Prime Minister’s Office [Islamic Affairs] and a few others especially the ignorants from the Non Muslim population.

fearful trepidation

His very name will cause trepidations to take place in the hearts and minds of the misinformed and this includes Dr.Mujahid Yusuf Rawa, son of a former PAS President and now appointed as Malaysia’s new Islamic Affairs Minister.

Mujahid says that Dr. Zakir Naik’s style of preaching is not suitable for Malaysia.

I quote what Free Malaysia Today has reported about Mujahid’s comment against Zakir Naik :

KUALA LUMPUR: The minister in charge of Islamic affairs today hit out at Indian Muslim preacher Dr Zakir Naik, saying his combative style of propagating the religion by putting down other beliefs is not suitable for Malaysia.

Mujahid Yusof Rawa said Naik, who has sought refuge in Malaysia amid an investigation by Indian authorities, has a penchant for insulting other religions.

“We don’t want a debate that ridicules others. We need a more intellectual and composed method of Islamic propagation without the need to ridicule other religions,” he said in his speech to launch a seminar today on Islam and the challenges in a multiracial society.

Naik is accused of giving provocative speeches, which were cited as a reason by Bangladesh for an attack in Dhaka in 2016 which left 22 people dead. India’s National Investigation Agency is also investigating Naik’s Islamic Research Foundation, over allegations of money laundering.

End of quote.

Mujahid Rawa must be nuts to say that Zakir Naik’s style of Islamic Dakwah @ Propagation is not intellectual or composed.

Hello Mujahid! Maybe you need to checkout your local bunch of ‘Ustaz’s who so often engage in vulgar and obscene methods to preach to the masses at the various masjids and suraus of the nation first before accusing Dr.Zakir Naik of ‘insulting’ other beliefs!

With ‘ministers’ like you in charge of Malaysia’s Islamic Affairs, we are truly going to be in deep shit!

Talk about the ‘clueless’ leading JAKIM. Malaysia is truly going downhill as far as Dakwah to the Disbelievers are concerned.

Let’s not forget your cosying up to the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender groups. Very promising future for the Ummah, huh?

Let me invite you to watch the following video of Dr. Zakir Naik’s public Question & Answer session where hundreds of thousands of Non Muslims and Muslims attended and got such highly intellectual and factual answers from the one whom you are libelling as a person who is insulting others.

It is one thing to try and curry favour with the Kaffirs for the sake of you wanting to be in their good books and for your political mileage; but for you to castigate one of the current world’s best ever Caller to Islam where hundreds of thousands of Disbelievers have declared their Syahadah after listening to and understanding what Islam really stands for is really uncalled for.

I wonder if you have done the same as well as Dr. Zakir Naik? Inviting the Disbelievers to Islam!

Do not forget dear Mujahid that we are all living here on this Earth temporarily. All your position and power or authority as a minister is just during your current tenure as a minister.

Whereas Dr. Zakir Naik, Insya Allah will be there amongst the ones glorified by Allahu Rabbul Alamin as the Warisatul Anbiya iwal Mursalin.

Do not think for a moment that we are going to accept your Fitnah against Dr. Zakir Naik!

Mujahid, you need to watch what the learned Mufti of Perlis, Sahibus Samahah, Dr. Mohd Asri Zainul Abidin @ Dr. MAZA has to say about Dr. Zakir Naik:

Tell you what, O Malaysian Minister of Islamic Affairs, how about you arranging a debate with the world’s most intellectual, knowledgeable scholar of all the Comparative Religions known to Mankind and try to expose him for what you stand accusing him of?

Don’t you forget O Mujahid, that Dr. Zakir Naik already has a Saudi Arabian citizenship but prefers to stay here in Malaysia to guide misinformed and clueless folks like you.

Syariah Laws Conundrum in Malaysia

Every now and then, we will hear about a case that involves matters concerning the upholding of the Syariah or against its implementation here in Malaysia.

Why is that so?

Well, for starters, the so-called Syariah Courts systems here in Malaysia differ severely from what is commanded by Allah the Almighty and enjoined by the Sunnah @ Examples of the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Alaihi Wassallam.

This problem is compounded further by the various ways by which each state in Malaysia interprets the Syariah Laws according to their whims or fancies and pick and choose some and leave out the rest.

They do not even agree to the upholding of what Allah the Supreme Creator has decreed and instead play pussyfoot with the Hudud Laws as they please.

 

As you can see in the diagram above, the ‘Syariah Courts’ of Malaysia are a rung below the High Court of Malaya and the High Court of Sabah and Sarawak which are below the Court of appeal and the Federal Court which is the highest court in the country.

Technically, the Shariah Courts are way down at level 5, just bordering above the level of the Subordinate Courts. Not much legal clout if you ask me.

Even then, when it comes to the meting out of justice to Syariah Law offenders, the various Syariah Courts of each state differ from one another and do not have Syariah Court judges with a firm spine and strength of character to see to the implementation of punishments befitting the crimes committed.

As evidenced in the case of Kartika Sari Dewi Syukarnor who was sentenced to be caned by 6 strokes of the Syariah Courts standard rotan, the punishment was scuttled by the decree of the Sultan of Pahang, Sultan Haji Ahmad Shah and changed with doing community service instead.

I was fortunate enough to be able to meet Allahyarham Professor Datuk Dr.Haji Harun Din Al Hafiz way back on the 6th of July, 2010 at his residence, Darussyifa, Bangi, Selangor and video interview him about the Syariah System being opposed by politicians like Karpal Singh and Anwar Ibrahim and the way Syariah Court judgments were not being implemented because the Malay Sultans here in Malaysia were not upholding the Commandments of Allah, God Almighty because they didn’t have it in them to do what’s right.

Isn’t it strange that the Malays of Malaysia choose to remain quiet and look the other way when the true Syariah Laws commanded by Allah the Almighty Himself are overruled by the Malay Sultans and even if said to be implemented are just very watered down puny sentences not worth a glance by true Mukmins who prefer to live under Allah’s Syariah systems instead of manmade laws!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

9 Malay Sultanates in the Malay Peninsular, [Johor, Kedah, Kelantan, Negeri Sembilan, Pahang, Perak, Perlis, Selangor and Terengganu. Melaka, Penang, Sabah, Sarawak and the Federal Territories are ruled by the Supreme King @ Yang Di Pertuan Agong.

Yet all these Malay Sultans and the Supreme King [chosen to reign as the Supreme King of Malaysia for 5 years on a rotation basis from the 9 Malay Sultans] do not really have it in them to issue forth a Royal Decree that Malaysia is to be ruled according to the Syariah of Allah, Azza Wa Jalla.

So, we are witnessing a conundrum today where we have all these people objecting to the true implementation of Allah’s actual Syariah Laws and prefer to put up a facade of allowing a very watered down, weakened form of Syariah Laws upon only Muslims.

Just look at how ‘chickenshit’ caning of the Syariah caning is done here in Malaysia! Bonkers!

Compare the above caning method of Malaysia with the right manner of caning being implemented in Acheh, Sumatera, Indonesia.

Then we have so called ‘Muslims’ protesting vehemently against even those very weakened and watered down Syariah punishments in the form of liberal groups like Sisters in Islam, Lawyers for Liberty and paranoid lawyers like Siti Kassim and others.

Couple that with Malay Sultans like the Sultan of Pahang and you have a situation where true Islam can barely breathe and those of us who would love nothing more than to see the real Syariah of Allah be a reality here in our lifetime face a secular Federal Government under a known anti Shariah Prime Minister in the form of Tun Dr.Mahathir Mohamad, Malaysia’s 4th and current 7th Premier.

It’s becoming a real struggle to live life as a proper Muslim in this climate of anti-Syariah and anti-Islamic anything brought about by a disorganised JAKIM [Jabatan Kemajuan Islam Malaysia @ Department of Islamic Development of Malaysia] which has really not done much for better understanding of Islam in this country.

JAKIM really needs to step up its role in explaining about the difference between the Syariah Laws of Allah the Almighty and the more severe form of caning that is carried out under the Civil Laws system.

The caning carried out under the Civil Courts Penal Code System is usually much more severe in its implementation as shown in the video above. This type of caning is usually meted out upon vicious criminal convicts who are found guilty of major crimes such as robbery, rape, drug trafficking, etc.

We need more clearer explanation programs to be carried out by the Islamic Development Department of Malaysia.

When Alims turn into Zalims!

www.quran.com/5/63 To those who aren’t Muslims and familiar or understand what or who an ‘Alim‘ is, this is an Arabic term that is used to describe a person who is learned and presents him or herself as pious.

Zalim‘  on the opposite is used to describe whoever is cruel and unjust. An oppressor. One who abuses his or her position and powers to satisfy his or her wants and desires.

Devil in Disguise or an Alim who’s a Zalim

In today’s world, there are many who are taking others for a ride. Putting up a religious facade when facing the general public but deep down inside, they are akin to being Devils in Disguise. No, I am not talking about the Elvis Presley’s song, I am actually referring to the theatrics of those who show the world a persona of themself as being so holy moly, you’d be so impressed with them. I don’t need to name them. You’d know a few in your own life’s.

So, how do we deal with these two timers? Easy. Do not allow them room to abuse your trust. You do not have to pander to their every whim or fancy. Learn to say ‘No!’. Do not feed their narcissism. People who are used to getting their way, always will eventually realize that you can’t be had anymore.

Dried up Tumbleweed

Weeds when no longer nourished by rain eventually dries and shrivels up. Same goes for these narcissistic ‘Alim’s turned Zalim‘s’ when you no longer give them the space that they yearn for in your life. If we wish to survive from being victimised by these shysters, we need to wise up and give them a wide berth from ourselves. For the sake of our peace of mind and inner peace. We do not need to keep company with such kind.

Authentic Hadith narrated by Al Bukhari from Abu Musa As Sya’ari: ‘Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Alaihi Wassallam once said “Keep company with the one who sells perfume and fragrances. Even if you do not buy their wares, the sweet scents will stick upon you. Stay away from the blacksmith for your clothes might catch fire or you might feel uncomfortable with the fire and smoke!”

So dear Muslims, learn not to fall victim of the ‘Alim’s who might just turn ‘Zalim on you. Insya Allah.

 

MBA wishes Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri to all Muslims!

MBA Aidilfitri Well Wishes

Psst! Do you know that you were born as a Muslim?

Born pure free from sin

Sahih Muslim. Book No.33. Hadith No. 6426

Abu Huraira reported Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: “No child is born but upon Fitra. It is the  parents who make him or her a Muslim, a Jew, a Christian or a Polytheist!”.

A person asked: ‘O Allah’s Messenger, What is your opinion if they were to die before that (before reaching the age of adolescence when they can distinguish between right and wrong)?

He replied: “It is Allah alone Who knows what they would be doing”.

This is an authentic Hadith [Saying] of Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Alaihi Wassallam. Click here to read from the source here on the Internet.

Everyone of us are born free from Sin and our nature when being a child is likened to a blank piece of paper or as we are living today in the Last Ages and surrounded with all kinds of advancements in the field of Science & Technology, you can liken the newborn baby like a blank CD or DVD, SD card or Flash Drive.

It is up to us to record what we wish into that storage device just like it is up to each parent or parents to raise their child as they see fit.

Babies are free from having any preconceived ideas of their own yet in the following video, you will see how they calm down and listen to the recitation of the verses from the Holy Quran:

Who is it that puts this natural inclination for the innocent babies to listen to the verses from the Glorious Quran but Allah the Supreme Creator Himself!

Masya Allah.

Mencari Ayat-ayat al-Qur’an oleh Ikhwan Ng

Masa baru memeluk Islam, saya gemar beli buku dari kedai buku Islamik. Buku tebal sampai ratusan muka surat, macam2 tajuk buku ada.. Tapi apa yang menarik perhatian saya hanyalah beberapa patah ayat al-Qur’an dan terjemahan yang terselit dalam buku.

Kadang-kala tak baca sangat isi kandungannya pun, dengan merenung ayat-ayat al-Qur’an hati turut berasa tenang. Sampai setiap kali dapat gaji bulanan saja pasti beli buku baru untuk mencari beberapa patah ayat al-Qur’an yang lain.

Lama-kelamaan baru saya faham sebenarnya al-Qur’an ada juga terjemahannya bagi pembaca yang kurang fasih bahasa Arab. Bila hati tidak tenang, saya buka dan baca al-Qur’an terjemahan terbitan Al-Hidayah, sambil baca dan cuba memahami isi kandungannya daripada huraian notakaki.

Maka adalah tidak menghairankan apabila kita membaca kisah warga negara barat menemui hidayah hanya kerana membaca nas-nas dalam al-Qur’an. Hati mereka tersentuh dengan mesej Tauhid yang begitu kukuh dan indah, sehingga mereka berasa teringin kembali kepada agama fitrah.

Di Malaysia pula ramai yang menghalang Non Muslim daripada membaca al-Qur’an terjemahan, dilarang menyebut nas-nas Quran sekalipun.

Siapakah kita untuk menghalang hambanya daripada mencari-cari jawapan dalam al-Qur’an? Sekiranya nabi-nabi pun merata tempat menyahut semua orang sekeliling untuk kembali kepada Pencipta.. Membaca nas-nas Kitab yang datang daripada Ilahi dan bukannya digantung sebagai “azimat”, “pelaris duniawi”.. Sehinggalah Nabi Muhammad s.a.w. menjadi utusan terakhir dan agama Islam dilengkapkan sebagai agama yang sempurna untuk seluruh umat akhir zaman.

Siapa pula kita nak menghalang nas-nas al-Qur’an daripada dibaca dan disebut oleh Non Muslim sekiranya untuk tujuan penghayatan dan pemahaman yang ikhlas. Saya ingin bertanya..

‘Disko Dakwah’ Neelofa dengan Acara Pelancaran Tudung di Kelab Malam Zouk!

Begitu lah kalutnya ‘artis’ Akhir Zaman ini dengan mencampuradukkan yang hak dan halal dengan melancarkan produk hijab keluaran syarikatnya di lokasi maksiat yang terkenal di kotaraya Kuala Lumpur ini.

Hajjah Noor Neelofa seorang pelakon dan usahawan dari Kelantan memilih Zouk, sebuah kelab malam yang paling terkemuka untuk melancarkan fesyen tudung terbaru nya disana.

Hajjah Neelofa di Kelab Malam Zouk, KL .

Siap bersorak sorai dan menari gelek gelek secara seksi dan gaya orang ‘clubbing’! Hancur jadi nya imej seorang hijabista bila di perlakukan begitu di kelab malam, tempat orang2 pergi untuk mabuk mabuk dan berpesta pora!

Begini lah keadaan selalunya di Zouk, Kelab Malam berdekatan Bulatan Kampong Pandan, Kuala Lumpur. Tempat yang di pilih Hajjah Neelofa untuk lancar produk tudungnya!

Dan ini adalah rakaman pelancaran BeLofabyNH pada malam 26hb. Februari 2018 tersebut:

Ya, pihak Neelofa sudah menyiarkan permohan maaf hanya selepas tercetusnya kontroversi hebat di media sosial dan selepas Mufti Kerajaan Negeri Selangor menulis sepucuk surat terbuka menegur dan menasihatinya.

Namun bak kata pepatah Inggeris ‘The damage has been done!’

Dengar lah semula lagu popular yang menyindir golongan ‘Minah2 Tudung’ yang menyebabkan ramai orang geram dengan kebengongan mereka:

Dan ini pula adalah rakaman video asal dari You Tube yang di muatnaik pada 21hb Jun, 2006:

Memang kena pada ‘Minah2 Tudung’ yang jahil tentang adab dan tatacara membawa diri di khalayak ramai. Semoga mereka sedar dan insaf.

Riya’ @ Lesser Shirik ~ Portraying oneself as a very religious or charitable person!

Riya’ @ Ostentation

Whether we realize it or not, through our sharing’s on Social Media such as Facebook, Blogs or Twitter of our doing something good that is enjoined in Islam or show ourselves carrying out acts of charity and general showing to our viewers that we are amongst the exemplary ones or ‘cream of the crop’ from the multitudes of the Ummah of Rasul Sallallahu Alaihi Wassallam by displaying our photographs or videos doing so, inevitably we throw ourselves into the category above.

By doing so, without our realizing it, we have expunged ourselves from the list of those who strive in the Way of Allah Rabbul Alamin and in the footsteps of Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Alaihi Wassallam and His blessed Sahabah’s. Astaghfirullah hal Adzhim! 🙁

It is so easy to screw up and destroy the good that we did with such an unwarranted act of showing off which is termed as Riya’ @ a lesser form of Shirik which still enters us into the admission list to Narr al Jahannam, the wretched Hellfires!

This type of Riya’ is also known as Shirik al Asghar ~ the Lesser form of Shirik.

Isn’t it a shame? After all our efforts and hard work to do good, we cause ourselves to not only lose the rewards of carrying out acts of ibaadah and sadaqah but then get burdened with the Sins of Showing Off which destroys all the good points we had accumulated earlier with our good deeds and end up instead with the accursed sins of those who commit Disbelief in Allah by allowing Pride to enter our hearts.

Isn’t it a waste?

It’s not easy to be sincere too especially in these Last Ages where we crave for praise and human attention. Either directly or through getting ‘Likes’ on our Social Media pages. Such a thing carries no benefits for us in the actual sense of the word but it is in our human nature to bask in the sweet spotlight of attention and adulation.

Not easy dear brothers and sisters. Not easy at all. We have all in a way become narcissistic persons who crave for human appreciation and forget that when we are in the Yaum al Qubr @ Realm of the Grave, all such likes and praise bear no benefits and instead might cause us to be whacked like crazy by the Malaikats Munkar and Naqir, Radhiallahu Anhu’s.

Tough to stay sincere my friends. Even one iota of pride in our hearts will render all our acts of good faith and general acts of piety obsolete in the Eyes of Ar Rahman. Na’uzubillahiminzalik!

So, how do we avoid burning ourselves despite having done something extraordinary in the course of our lives? By attributing all or any of our good deeds to none but Allah for it is He Who out of His Magnificence allowed us to be able to do what we did and not revel in praise or adulation from our fellow beings.

May Allah protect us from ourselves and nurture our true selfs to be content with Him as our Saviour and guard us from our Nafs.  Ameen.

Essence of Iman [Faith] in Allah by Haji Zainol Abideen

Bismillah-hir-rahman-nir-rahim

In the Name of Allah, Most Compassionate, Most Merciful.

As Muslims, it is important that from time to time, we remind each other about the basics of our faith, the Deen of Al Islam. What we as Believers need to know in order that we get to pass from ourselves the true knowledge of Islam to our loved ones and from them to the next generation and from that next generation to the ones who follow.

This is how the Blessed Rasulullah, Khatamun Nabiyyin, Sayyidul Mursalin, Prophet Muhammad ibni Abdullah, Sallallahu Alaihi Wassallam enjoined us to spread from him, even it be just a verse from the Al Qur’anul Karim, the Final Testament and Scripture from Allah the Almighty to all Mankind.

Islam is not a religion followed blindly by those who are ignorant [jahil] but The Only Way of Life that was revealed by Allah, Our Supreme God, Master and Creator of everything that is both visible and that of the Unseen yet which exists.

Every thought, every action, every movement that we make or do has its meanings and significance. It is not enough that you say that you believe BUT do not really know what it is exactly that you say you do believe in. Too hard for you? Okay, let me brief you further about it.

The mark of a Muslim [Believer in Allah] is that he or she knows exactly what he or she claims to believe [have faith] in! Allah is the Supreme Creator of us all but we as His Creation do not see him [visually] for He Chooses to remain Unseen [Al-Ghaib].

Just because we as mere mortals can’t see Him doesn’t mean that He is not there or doesn’t exist. Still can’t get it?

Okay, I will try to explain further. Let’s start with ourselves.

We are alive now and in human form, right? We have a physical form and are the only creation of Allah apart from the Djinns who are capable of intelligence and free will to choose between what’s right and wrong.

Now, regarding us being alive and having the faculty of reason. If you can read and understand all that I am sharing here, that means that you sir or madam, brother or sister are capable of understanding and do possess a level of intelligence to know what I am sharing.

Good for you. Now, let me ask you. What is it that makes us alive right now?

What? You are alive because your heart is pumping and all other organs are functioning as well?

Alhamdulillah. That’s very good to know.

Now, who or what causes your heart to beat or keep on beating?

No scientist has the answer. The best that a doctor or surgeon can do after doing all that he or she can do in trying to revive a patient on their operating table will be to let off a heavy sigh, shake their head, shrug in despair and tell the nurse or operating theatre staff to record the Time of Death.

An interesting GIF that I found online that has nothing to do with this article but just added it here to demonstrate that Death will find us no matter what and our end will be not a second too early or a second too late.

The brightest scientist or world heralded genius can’t foresee or stifle his or her end despite all their intelligence can conjure up with all the latest gadgetry or gizmos that Science can come up with.

Where are the Einsteins, the Thomas Edisons, the Khwarizmi’s , the Newtons, whoever you can think of that were regarded as the brightest of the best today?

Gone. Returned to the Creator. The physical form has died. Even if you embalm and preserve the body, it is nothing but just a dead cadaver. Preserved with embalming fluids and whatever but there’s no life in it. The heart has long ceased to function.

The smartest of the smartest genius minds here on Earth can’t give life to a long dead and preserved heart. Even the greatest so called magicians and illusionists are dead themselves.

Why did they die? How come those legendary persons did not survive or escape the grasps of the Malaikatul Maut? Sayyidina Izra’il Alaihis Salam. Where are they now?

It is entirely up to Allah, our Supreme Lord and Creator as to whether He chooses to bestow Life to one and take it back from whomsoever that Allah Chooses!

We come into existence and cease to be by Allah’s Will and His’s Only.

Allah, Ar Rahman, Ar Rahim. Allah, Most Compassionate, Most Merciful.

He gives life even to the billions of people who choose to deny Him. He continues to shower upon those who choose to disbelieve either out of their own ignorance or wilful stubbornness as a result of their humongous egos yet He bestows upon them the goodness of this earthly life but not that of the Yaum al Akhirat. The Realm of the Hereafter.

As a Muslim, we who have come to study and realize the temporariness of this Realm of Earthly Existence choose to submit to the Will and Commandments of Allah disregarding whatever the Kafirun’s ~ Disbelievers have to say or opinionate.

For a Mukmin obeys what Allah and His Final Messenger commands and enjoins upon us. All these sharing of knowledge is but a tiny attempt on my part to help you start thinking as to who you really are?

Who is it who created you? Gave you life? Your Faculty of Reason? Your ability to choose or decide?

This is just a preliminary step that I am asking you to take in your journey to find the Truth about who you really are and Who is the True God to Whom you owe your existence?

Not a figment of your imagination or that you can buy at your local religious paraphernalia supermarket or store.

The True God Who expects nothing from you except your devotion and submission to Him. And to Him Only.

God Who does not need you to offer any food, flowers, milk, candles or offerings to Him.

Do not belittle God to be that object to which you genuflect momentarily in an impure state and then hurry off to whatever you deem is so important yet not realizing that with each passing second, your Death Clock ticks closer and closer to your final and ultimate end. Here. In this 3rd Realm of your existence.

Think my dear brothers and sisters. You and me. We are not here by chance. No sirree.

Each of us are unique and special. We owe it to ourselves to really, consciously study as to how we came to be? Why we are who we seem to be and where will we end up in just the next second or moment in this realm of being?

It’s time for me to take leave of this sharing. Will continue later in the next posting if He allows me. Insya Allah.

Wabillahi Taufik Wal Hidayah.

Wassalamu Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh.
