2020 CE dawns ~ What’s in store for us Muslims of the world?

For starters, nothing much. We are facing the same old strifes’ amongst the so-called Muslim nations of the Middle East. In fact, in the case of Saudi Arabia, time-honoured traditions and social taboos are fast dissipating as the Crown Prince of the House of Al-Saud, Prince Mohammad bin Salman al Saud, has decreed that there will be allowed, night clubs and open events where men and women will be allowed to mix and party as they please.

 

Some might say that it’s about time that Saudi Arabians be allowed to be as they really are in their home country and not put up a show of being ‘holy moly’ in Arabia but go havoc when they travel overseas.

He has lifted the ban on Saudi Arabian women from driving, allowed cinemas to be opened, allowed nightclubs and entertainment outlets to be established in the kingdom.

So, in a way, Saudi Arabian citizens are finally living a life which is similar to most countries in the modern world. Gender inequality is ingrained in Saudi Arabian culture but slowly but surely, one by one of these taboos are being removed by the Crown Prince in his mission to fast forward Saudi Arabia into the 21st century.

He intends to open up Saudi Arabia for tourism and not depend solely on fossil fuel extraction as its sole source of income and base of its economy. That’s admirable.

Yet, Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman al Saud is not free from controversy. He is said to be the one who ordered the assassination of dissident Saudi Arabian journalist Jamal Ahmad Khashoggi who was on the run for being quite critical of the Al Saud family.

Jamal Ahmad Khashoggi [photo] was butchered when he went to the Saudi Arabian consulate in Istanbul, Turkey to have his Saudi official identification documents processed for he needed them to register his marriage with Hatice Cengiz, his Turkish fiancee.

To this date, Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman Al Saud has not been formally charged with ordering the assassination of Jamal Ahmad Khashoggi. Instead, as usual, a number of others have been ‘found guilty’ of the murder. I am sure that Hatice Cengiz will not get the justice she seeks for from anyone. Even the UN will not raise even a whimper against the Saudi Arabian government or censure anyone else. The USA who are deeply involved in an arms supply deal to Saudi Arabia worth hundreds of billions in US Dollars will obviously not bother about this case.

The Saudi Arabian Government didn’t want to attend the late 2019 KL Summit because they were not willing to have any other Muslim country take the lead in discussing Muslim affairs and come to any solutions to solve the Ummah’s woes and problems. Only the leaders of Turkey, Qatar and Iran were brave enough to attend this summit. Pakistan’s Premier Imran Khan didn’t attend the summit and instead sent a representative after attending a meeting with Saudi Crown Prince MBS.

Malaysian 7th Prime Minister, Tun Dr.Mahathir Mohamad is well known for not mincing his words when it comes to calling a spade just that. He is very much respected by almost all other countries leaders for being courageous and brave enough to criticize the superpowers at the United Nations General Assembly, right there in New York, United States of America.

Witness for yourselves how foreign dignitaries and leaders of other countries lined up to shake his hands at the UNGA after he delivered his speech.

Not that many Muslim leaders have it in them to speak so courageously and clearly calling for the upholding of true justice for all nations and to not allow just a few major countries continue to have veto powers overruling the wishes of 200 over member countries of the world. We have yet to see any other leader in this world speak so clearly against the superpowers such as the USA, UK, France, Russia and China.

Here in Malaysia, the Muslims are often at odds against each other and thus remain divided into several opposing political parties. As a result, the ethnic minority political parties such as the DAP have grown in power and every now often, encroach into the religious affairs and socio-cultural matters which are offensive and sensitive to the Malay-Muslim majority.

Lately, the matter regarding the re-introduction of the Jawi calligraphy into the module of Standard Four primary schools education system became a major scandal where the Chinese Educationist Pressure Group Dong Jiao Zong constantly goaded and pressured the Education Minister, Dr Mazlee Malik to reverse his decision and were bombarding him, day and night to the extent where he decided to call it quits and just tendered his resignation.

All these take place because of the disunity amongst the Malays and also due to the past government’s corrupt and kleptocracy which brought Malaysia to be so indebted to China with debts totalling more than 1 Trillion ringgits.

It’s a sad reality that although the Quran was delivered to us in its entirety more than a thousand four hundred over years ago, most Muslims and their leaders have failed to live up to its principles and tend to commit breaches of trust in almost each and every Muslim country. We do not fear Allah Azza Wa Jalla as we should and tend to love the pleasures of this earthly life more.

Even religious scholars have fallen victim to their Nafs @ Lusts and frequently betray the trust placed upon them by the Ummah. So, whom can we trust and depend on nowadays?

It is so challenging to live as per what Islam asks of us for we are facing all kinds of tests today.

So it is good for us to learn and know about what’s going to happen before the world comes to an end ~ Yaum al Qiyamah BUT it is also important for us to be prepared and do something positive to improve the quality of our life.

Here is a useful video that teaches us to do just that:

Even though we know that generally, we as Muslims are already living today in the Age of Fitna, we are still lucky to still be breathing and do what we need to do in order to save ourselves from being amongst those who are the eternal losers in the Hereafter @ the Akhirat.

Read as much as you can from reliable sources and live your life as best and as productively as you can. Go to www.quran.com to learn more about what Allah Azza Wa Jalla has revealed to us and also learn about the true Hadiths of Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wassallam here.

May Allah bless and guide us to His Mercy and Salvation. Ameen.

Wabillahi Tawfeek Wal Hidayah.

Wassalamualaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh.

 

 

 

Sperm Donor Half Siblings – Islamic Perspective.

In the name of Allah, Most Compassionate, Most Merciful.
Islam places the honor and dignity of Mankind in the highest level of living life in human society. No matter what caste or creed one finds oneself in nowadays, the reality of one’s lineage and heritage remains the utmost important bedrock of one’s personal being amidst the human society in general.
With the advent of modern science and technology today, scientists and biologists have succeeded in discovering new methods and formulas to assist in human procreation and reproductive advancements.
Years before the Revelation of the Glorious Quran, Mankind did not have any idea as to how we are created and formed to be who we are and how we come to be?
Yet, amongst the very first revelations of the Qur’an to Prophet Muhammad Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam is the verse https://quran.com/96/2 .
This verse explains to Mankind that we are created from a ‘clinging substance’. Watch the video:

How is it that Muhammad, an illiterate , unlettered Prophet of Allah, God Almighty can so accurately share this very scientific accurate information about the Creation of Man through these very exact revelations if they are not from Almighty God, Himself, almost 981 years before the invention and discovery of the microscope?

Now we know that human reproduction and conception in the womb of the mothers takes place when one out of the millions of ejaculated spermatozoa from the human father succeeds in impregnating the ovum secreted by the human mother when she is fertile.

In our human society, we have a set of norms. When a young man and woman is ready for marriage, we go about practicing time honored cultures and traditions where the young man and his representatives go seek the hand of the chosen woman as his bride to be.

We might differ in these methods by way of our time honored social and cultural traditions. Yet the main core values remain as a binding force of our individual societies identities.

Today, the whole damn world’s population seems hell bent on repeating the sordid acts of the people of Prophet Lut Alaihis Salam by engaging in homosexual and lesbianism all in the name of freedom and ‘human rights’. LGBTQ meaning ‘Lesbian, Gay [Homosexuals], Bisexual, Transgender and Queer seem to be gaining huge support from the Western countries and even the Catholic Church can’t do much to stop the rot.

Even their ‘Clergy’ are made up of such abominable types. Many a case of priests sodomizing young altar boys of the various churches has rocked the very foundation of Christendom and even nuns have fallen victims to lecherous priests and pastors.

The Muslim religious world is not squeaky clean itself either. Every now and then we read of Imams and Murshids of Madrassas committing the same crimes and when they get caught, often blame the Devil for their sins!

What a whole load of bullshit! Syaitan has got nothing to do with these crimes. They commit these grave major sins with full knowledge of what they are doing and often try to wriggle themselves out of the situation when caught with their robes down.

The problem with many so called ‘Muslim countries’ is that their Rulers, Presidents, Emir’s and Sultan’s seriously lack the commitment to uphold the true Islamic teachings and Syariah rulings.

In their bid to seek the popular vote and support of the deviant masses, many of these rulers and heads of state, choose to seek an alternative to the Syariah Laws of Allah, God Almighty and decree that lesser punishments be meted out for serious offenses.

Thus, adulterers, fornicators and those committing debauchery and incest are let off with just a ‘slap on the wrist’ type of sentences, emboldening the masses to continue living a life of Sin, not bothered with the Do’s and Don’ts of their faiths.

In Islam, the punishment for Zina @ Adultery committed by an unmarried person is a 100 lashes of the cane that is meant to educate and reform the offender.

The punishment for those adulterers who are married is death by stoning.

In today’s unfortunate world, the adulterers, fornicators and perpetrators of incest are merely let off with a small fine or a jail term that does not cause them to repent and turn over a new leaf in their life.

The end result is that society tends to become worse and a living nightmare for women, young children and those who are weak and unprotected.

At times, they are often ravaged and violated by the very officials who are supposed to protect them!

These LGBTQ practitioners are the result of the apathy shown by the so called authorities of many countries of the world today.

Men engaging in homosexual acts with men, women committing homosexual acts with women and those who turn into transvestites are the sinners who are causing grievous damage to the norms of human society.

Let me now, start with the main topic of this article. Half-siblings borne out of sperm donor conceivements.

To the lay person reading this heading, he or she might just accept it at face value. Half-sibling. Meaning sharing a common parent.

Be it the biological mother or father. If the parents are lawfully married, no problems, whether legally or from the religious aspect.

If otherwise, here’s where the complications arise.

I would like to draw your attention to this particular case where a young man who was born from a conceivement using a sperm donor in his search for his biological father discovers that he has not one or two but 32 half-siblings born to so many other unmarried mothers.

In reality, all these 32 + 1 persons are bastards.

You may say that calling them so is harsh but we have to call them just for what their true status is as per both the legal and religious aspects.

Call a spade just that and do not legitimize whatever is illegal or against the law from both whatever is manmade or from Almighty God.

They can’t inherit property for their being born out of an out of wedlock conceivement denies them such rights.

Please refer to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Legitimacy_(family_law)

Their whole genealogical family tree is all screwed up and devoid of legitimacy.

Actually, these unfortunate souls who are offsprings of bad decision makers in the form of their LGBTQ mothers and those irresponsible sperm donors are the victims of a society that simply doesn’t care or give a damn about the consequences of their lusts.
Islam has all the answers to avoid all these mess but as we all know, the Western media seems too occupied with sending the wrong messages about Islam to the gullible ignorants of the world.
Do not despair. Seek the Guidance and Light of Islam from Our Creator, Allah the Most Merciful.
He will hear you.

Don’t try and marry a convert if… by Sister Alicia Alexander a.k.a. Nomad Noor

+Warning this is a rant+

Dear Brothers in Islam Seeking a Convert Wife,

Please don’t express interest in a convert if you can’t deal with the issues that a convert to Islam has. Just save us sisters the disappointment and maybe even heart break – oh yeah.. and TIME.

Don’t claim to be a Sunnah loving brother if your sitting on your high horse judging the sister you expressed interest in based on her past BEFORE Islam.

So she had sex before marriage? Big deal!  I know so many brothers who are born or converted to Islam who have done the same thing.  The amount of hypocrisy in that single statement can’t be contained in an OCEAN- let alone a bucket.

She has a kid or kids from a previous marriage or relationship?  Umm isn’t that a positive given there is proof she can have a kid?  Geez.. you don’t even have proof your half of the DNA you want to share is viable.

She may have struggled with addictions such as alcohol or drugs of some form or another.

She may have been abused. Verbally, Sexually, Mentally, Financially, Emotionally, Physically or Digitally. She now may have issues trusting men among other things.

Why would you be doing such a thing given those sins are forgiven in the eyes of Allah?  Especially if your a convert too.

Don’t hold a convert to a higher or lower standard than a born Muslim.  A convert is just another Muslim – so the standard should stay the same regardless.

Converts aren’t some rare breed of Muslim that has special powers or skills that you will benefit from should you be able to persuade one to actually marry you.

For converts usually the main issue is usually our families.  We deal with family issues most born Muslim’s should be grateful to avoid.

Example of a Convert to Islam ~ American Rapper who has reverted

Example of a Convert to Islam ~ American Rapper who has reverted

Our families drink, do drugs, have sex before marriage or are just generally promiscuous, are gay, transgender, bi sexual, some are hard-core Jews, Christians etc, some families serve pork to their new Muslim family members to express their disapproval, others disown or kick out their converted family member.

As converts we struggle constantly to strike a balance between Islam and our families.  We desire to be good Muslims for the sake of Allah at the same time we want to respect and honor our parents and families.  So we have to make a choice – when to be flexible and when to not be when it comes to the things our families ask of us.

When it comes to marriage most of us were raised with a belief in love and happily ever after – yes even the guys.  Our families aren’t traditionally as involved in mate selection as other cultures and religions are.  So our father’s aren’t usually going to be asking for your last 10 years tax returns, social security number and driving record.  Our families view a marriage as between two individuals most of the time not between two families.  Although the TV Show Dynasty might have changed that.

I have to personally make choices between do I share in Xmas celebrations or not? I judge that based on what the true motivation is behind the celebration as my family isn’t religious – I feel comfortable doing so.. knowing its about the actual time off from work and that the time has be designated to share time with family.  How offensive would that be to my family?  If I said.. no?  On a scale of 1 -10 probably an 8.

Do I go to a dinner where my families will consume alcohol or not?  How offensive would that be? I choose to attend knowing people will be doing a haraam activity from the Islamic perspective because it would offend people if I didn’t attend.  My family would be confused and hurt.

And until I am married – Paradise is at the feet of my mother.

I could not live a life of peace if I spent every second of every day worrying about the small stuff.  Never is there any sort of Dunya.. in which perfection exists for the average Muslim.  My religious choice isn’t everyone else’s – so those standards don’t apply.

So Dear Brothers in Islam seeking a Convert Wife – Seek your future wife for her religion, beautiful personality, smile and the way she makes you feel better on the cloudiest of days.  Knowing that the values, moral and ethical code apply to you and her.. and Insya Allah your future family together – don’t apply to hers.  Understand that she has hard choices to make and that at times they will be extremely painful for one reason or another.

Insya Allah, then you’re ready to get married to a convert.

Sincerely,

A. Alexander

Convert since August 2007

When Bloggers start getting distracted and abandon their blogs!

A bit morbid, one might say but that is the sorry state that I find many of the blogs belonging to quite a number of the ‘registered’ bloggers here in the MBA!

What can I say? As there’s no ‘Compulsion’ in forcing anyone into Islam, so is the same for those who were once so gung ho about joining the MBA eleven years ago but now reduced to just a few who still somehow have it in them to continue blogging.

In fact, this site went flatline a week or two ago when yours truly had some difficulty in renewing the hosting and as a result, www.themuslimbloggersalliance.org technically went into the ‘twilight zone‘.

Tried asking for help from a few of the members whom I hoped would be able to help pay for the hosting and restoration fees, but unexpectedly, these well to do professionals went mute. I understand. It’s okay.

I have been paying out of my own pockets for all the domain renewal and hosting fees all these years as my commitment to keep this MBA up and running. Allah knows I tried. Anyway, life goes on.

What I would like to advise those whose blogs are ‘dead‘ is to remember that our efforts here on Earth is to help share the Truth about Islam and to dispel any lies and slanders against our Faith that seems to crop up like poisonous mushrooms every now and then.

You do not have to reinvent the wheel so to speak. Just hold firm to the Rope of Allah @ namely the Glorious Quran and to refer to the Authentic Hadiths and Sunnah of our Greatest Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Alaihi Wassallam when sharing about Islam.

Always remember to follow Allah’s Commandment to us in Chapter 16, Verse 125 in the Holy Quran and do not go overboard in your manner of deliverance. Remember that our main purpose in being a Muslim Blogger is to help draw people to Islam.

Not scare them away with any extremism or unIslamic conduct. We are not those considered to be the Infallibles. We are not free from sin. Yet that should not dampen our spirits from wanting to cleanse ourselves from our errors and faults.

You can start all over again and grow your online presence once again. If you are reading this, it means that you are still alive and breathing. Do not give up on yourself. Not just yet! Hehehehe..

There’s still some sense of Life in you. Clear those proverbial cobwebs from your mind. Tell yourself, that you still have that fire burning within you. 🙂 There’s still hope.

Arise O you Muslim Blogger and be the Bright Spark that you once were! Get writing and Publish!

Insya Allah! You can do it!

‘Muslims’ today are waging war against each other in the Middle East!

Would you not agree?

We are witnessing today, the world’s so-called Muslim nations suffering from strife and in disorder despite the huge amount of wealth and resources that Allah Azza Wa Jalla has bestowed upon us.

The hot burning sands of the Arabian desert was once a desolate, arid barren humongous expanse of parched land which even the Romans and Greeks of yesteryears shunned and bypassed to look for the riches of Egypt and elsewhere.

Allah the Most Merciful blessed the Middle Eastern countries with Oil in their lands. Petroleum. The most sought after Fossil Fuel that is much needed to operate automobiles and power generators.

These mostly ‘Muslim’ countries sadly are led by their leaders and rulers who spend the newfound wealth mostly on their flamboyant lifestyles and do not use it to help their long suffering Muslim brethren in less fortunate nations.

Today, we see the people of Yemen, brutally massacred by Saudi Arabian and UAE armed forces. More than 50,000 poor Yemenis have died from the aerial bombardment by Saudi Arabian fighter jets and many more as a result of hunger and malnutrition caused by the Saudi led blockade. 

https://youtu.be/bZyRDDBEYbU

Instead of helping one another as enjoined in Islam, these Middle Eastern Arabs, who are ‘Muslims’ in name are waging war against their brethren south of the Arabian Peninsula.

Guess who are Saudi Arabia’s major weapons suppliers? The Americans, British, EU and others.

Life Changes: Choosing Divorce-American Muslimah’s Musings

Dear Reader,

I have not written in a while because I felt my life wasn’t social media worthy – shiny, picture perfect, staged just so and I did not want my life to become gossip fodder for those who have a negative intent or ill will towards me.

Over the last three years, I have struggled in my marriage with my husband.  We have attended marriage counseling twice both times initiated by myself.  I had hoped we could work through the issues we faced as a couple.  Some of the issues were not my own.  Some of them were.

I wavered back and forth to stay in my marriage or not.   There was a lot of familial and social pressure to stay – no matter what the issue that I was facing.  There was support from good friends and family to leave and set me up for a smooth transition out of the marriage.

I fought to reenter the workforce applying to over 150 jobs.  I succeeded when my daughter was 18 months old because I could foresee where things were heading.  I knew that if I did nothing that I there was a high probability I would shortly be homeless with a small child.

I could not rely on him.  I could not trust him to do the right thing.

I would hope I could again and again only to be disappointed.

I paid for and did all the paperwork for my husband to immigrate to this country.

I helped my husband gain his first job here in the United States working part-time for UPS and he was content with this.

I saw how he did not have a hunger for education to improve his career outcome and financial standing by working on his English language ability or seek to get a job that required full-time hours.

He was comfortable doing the bare minimum to get by.  He was comfortable and ok having us on MediCal and food stamps. He was comfortable and ok with my mom paying our rent. He saw no reason to change and step up.

I continued to see evidence of my husband’s lack of care and selfishness.  My mother in law asked me to take care of my husband and I think I and my family have stepped up to do so really well.

I finally decided it was time to rip the band-aid off in July.  So after 5 plus years of marriage, I filed for divorce.

I grew tired of being the sole responsible person in this marriage.  I am tired of not being a priority for my spouse.  I am tired of begging for affection and love only to be rejected in favor of pornography and sex workers.  I am tired of working full-time, being the parent, maid and cook all alone.

I am tired of being lonely.  I am tired of being tired.

I accept I can not change another person.  I can only change myself and control myself.

It is healthier for my daughter and myself that I not remain in a marriage where I am something to be used at my husband’s convenience be it for sex, money, a verbal punching bag or validation.

I felt I was a single parent long before this divorce started.  I do not think its right that I or any other parent should have to fight or argue to get the parent of the child to care for that kid’s needs – for example, something as simple as a diaper change regardless if the mother works outside of the home or not.

Being a parent means that you sacrifice your needs or delay them to tend to the needs of your child in my opinion especially when they are in the three years and under age group when their needs are the most intense and basic.

Some in the community and family would say – just stay – tough it out and do not air your “dirty laundry.”  To them I say – how is that in line with our Prophetic tradition and more importantly our Qur’an?  We were not made to suffer within unhappy and unhealthy relationships as my marriage has been.  It is this demand for silence and suffering that perpetuates abuse within our community.

It enables those who are not ready for the spiritual, financial and emotional responsibilities that being in a marriage entails – to get married and create a pool of single mothers that then struggle to create support networks, reenter the workforce, move out of poverty and fend off being targeted by men who would abuse their power and privilege – not to marry these women but seek sexual gratification in the guise of the promise of marriage or even orfi (temporary) marriage.

Marriage is work and it is not all sunshine, rainbows, and unicorns.   The wedding and all of the pomp and circumstance around it is not the entirety of a marriage.

Marriage can be a boring daily grind where you simply are happy that the person you chose to be with is there in the trenches with you as you collapse into bed at midnight knowing you are both going to get up and repeat the cycle again the next day.

I remain optimistic that I will one day find the right partner for this journey in the Dunya.   My journey right now requires me to make hard decisions with a focus on what is healthy, safe and moves myself and child forward to a better future.


“There’s a difference between giving up and knowing when you’ve had enough.”

Dicing with Death ~ Winner or Sinner? Our Choice.

Assalamualaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh Ya Ikhwanul Muslimin na wal Mukminat. Today I am inviting you to think about the inevitable. Our Last Moment here on Earth. Our Death. Ajal.

Is there any guarantee that we would be in Allah’s good graces when our Time is up? Just like the metronome, our fate depends on what we are up to at the very second the Malaikatul Maut @ Angel of Death, Sayyidina Izra’il Alaihis Salam comes a calling upon us.

You never know whether we are going to Heaven or Hell depending on our last deed here on Earth?

In Surah Al Munafiqun, Chapter 63 Verse 10, Allah Azza Wa Jall reminds us to be in His Path using what He has provided us with for if and when Death approaches us, we would be inclined to ask for a postponement in order that we would then be charitable in the hope of ending up among the righteous.

So, in a way, we are all dicing with Death. The Choice of being a Winner or get caught up with our moment of Death where we would be classified as a Sinner!

Would we get to pass away from this Life in Husnul Khatimah @ The Best of Ending or end up in Su’ul Khatimah? The Worst of Ending’s? Na’uzubillah! May Allah Forbid!

Death is inevitable. It doesn’t care if you are a Royal King or ordinary Commoner. Even if you are being surrounded by the best doctors and specialists of the world, when your time is up, you will die. Period.

Don’t wait to be a Muslim till you are already breathing your last on your deathbed. Sure, your entire record of sins which you have committed are erased and deleted from your accounts the minute that you declare your attestment of faith @ Shahadah towards Allah the Almighty and attesting that Muhammad is the [Final] Messenger of Allah but surely embracing Islam and living your life as a Muslim whilst you are young and healthy would be much more meaningful.

Be thankful that you are still alive by the Grace and Mercy of Allah and getting to read and understand all that is being shared here in this article.

You owe it to yourself to decide where you wish to end up after leaving this earthly existence. Choose where you want your soul to be after your death.

Heaven or Hell?

Your Choice.

Ramadhan Mubarak! 1440 AH/ 2019 CE. Blessed Month.

MBA Bloggers Ramadhan Well Wishes

We would like to wish all our fellow Muslims, a Blessed Ramadhan this 1440 AH / 2019 CE.

Despite all that we see taking place in this challenging times in these End Times, the spirit of Goodwill and Month of Purification of both our bodies and soul takes precedence over everything else.

May Allah the Most Compassionate and Most Merciful accept our Fasting and other Ibadah and reward us with His Forgiveness and Blessings.

Ameen.

Dr. Zakir Naik ~ Caller to Islam via Comparative Religious Dialogues.

Dr.Zakir Naik

I am sure that you know who Dr.Zakir Naik is? He is at the moment, the most talked about Caller to Islam in today’s world, who is quite feared by those Hindu, Christian and other Non Muslim heads of religion for being able to debate and defeat most of them in Comparative Religious forums,etc.

He has taken up Permanent Residence here in Malaysia because the Indian Bharatiya Janata Party led Hindu majority Government has issued an arrest warrant for him on charges of money laundering and inspiring acts of terrorism. Fearing a biased judicial outcome based upon the history of PM Narendra Modi’s involvement in inaction when the Gujarat Hindu massacre of Muslims took place, I can understand Dr.Zakir’s staying put here in Malaysia. Safety first!

The world needs to be fair when it comes to judging a person who strives to clear the misunderstandings about Islam through his public discussions and dialogues carried out in an open public discourse. Anyone of his critics is free to step up and stand before a microphone and ask him questions related to the topic or subject of his speech. He or she can go ahead and prove him wrong if they are able to, right before the hundreds if not thousands of his audience.

Problem is, most of them don’t even dare to do so. All they are prone to doing is to vehemently protest and castigate him when gathered in groups but none dare do so before him in any public forum or speaking function which he regularly holds here. Why?

Why do they not dare to do so? One of the reasons could be that they do not possess the knowledge about their own professed faith or have it in them to be able to speak point to point against him in a professional and educated manner. They usually do not know in depth about what their own scriptures or ‘holy books’ contain. Hence their animosity towards the learned Dr.Zakir Abdul Karim Naik.

There is a saying that ‘Knowledge is Power‘. Thus, those who lack such knowledge fear Dr. Zakir Naik for his knowing more about whatever faith that they claim to profess and are reluctant to challenge him in an open platform such as his public events which are held quite often.

As a fellow Muslim and Caller to Islam in my own way, I fully support Dr.Zakir Naik in his vision and mission to share about Islam, the birthright of every human being here on Earth.

Insya Allah.
