Rohingya Muslims are being massacred! Why no one cares?

The Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Alaihi Wassallam foretold of this situation in the End Times (now) were there will be much bloodshed!

The Last Hour will not come unless there is much bloodshed.227

Near the establishment of the Hour there will be much Al-Harj, and Al-Harj means killing…228

The day of Judgment will not come until people openly deny Allah.229

Great cities will be ruined, and it will be as if they had not existed the day before.230

Gains will be shared out only among the rich, with no benefit to the poor.231

People will indulge in homosexuality and lesbianism.232

There will be prevalence of open illegal intercourse.233

The Hour (Last Day) will not be established until murders will increase.234

End Times Kllings

Today we are witnessing the senseless killings of Rohingya Muslims of the Arakan State in Myanmar (Burma) where the Myanmar Army and Buddhist Monks led rampaging hordes massacre the helpless Rohingya Muslims without mercy!

The Rohingyas homes are bombed and burnt down by the Myanmar Army and Police. Rampaging Buddhist mobs are killing the unarmed Rohingyas as they please and Rohingya women are gang raped and then killed by these murderous Buddhists!

Rohingyas Killed

All these atrocities are taking place right now before our very eyes yet the world’s so called authorities are not doing anything to save them! ASEAN does not bother to even warn the Myanmar government to stop these killings and ethnic cleansing of the Rohngyas.

Malaysia needs to expel the Myanmar representatives from remaining here as they blatantly ignore all calls to show mercy to the plight of the suffering Rohingya Muslims.

Rohingya Homes burning

Myanmar must be stopped! The world needs to teach Yangon a lesson! The UN needs to move in and stop the bloodshed. Failing which then it should just disband. Just the same with ASEAN. Another useless body.

Not forgetting the OIC. Another bunch of losers. No spine in them. Just as what the Prophet said. That in the End Times his ummah will be as many as the froth upon the ocean waves. Weak and disunited. Powerless.

Who is going to help them?

Donald Trump’s Presidency ~ How will it affect us Muslims?

Trump

Well, for one thing, it brings to my mind the American Muslim Girl\’s Fears Donald Trump video after her post-wisdom tooth dental surgery’s trauma that Donald Trump @ the leader of the rednecks is going to kick her out and her dad’s reassuring her that no such thing is gonna happen!

Muslims in America are subject to rising cases of attacks against them due to Islamophobia. Many less informed and ignorant Americans unfortunately swallow hook, line and sinker whatever their equally ignorant and biased media channels show them hateful content portraying Muslims as the new evil that they must fight and get rid of like what they were shown about the communist Russians and the Japanese enemies to be their mortal enemies!

After the Americans defeated Nazi Germany and Japan in WW2, they came to view Islam and the Muslims as their new enemies and we cant totally blame them for thinking in such a way because there are certain groups of so called Muslims who ‘foam at the mouth and get into hysterics wanting to destroy America! as if that’s what our faith tells us to do! Just go to You Tube and watch this Anti-American Protest. It will give you an idea of what I mean?

You don’t to go far looking for such evidences because there are lots of videos n You Tube showing the crowds of deranged ‘Muslims’ burning the American flag and gong berserk at every rally and protest that some political groups or instigating politician stirs up every now and then to advance his cause and gain some political mileage for himself whilst turning the ignorant masses as his proverbial sacrificial goats!

Anti American protest

Instead of practicing true Islamic teachings, the majority of our fellow Muslims are sadly prone to just be those who are ‘Muslim’ in name only. How many of us are well versed with what Islam really is? Try asking your fellow Muslim around you to explain what Islam is and chances are that the average ‘Muslim’ will try to give an excuse that he or she is not a scholar and can’t.

Even amongst the so called scholars of Islam exists so many different ‘schools of thought’ brought about by their insistence that their’s is the only true form of Islam and others are deviant! The irony is that our beloved Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Alaihi Wassallam came and taught us only One Creed @ Aqeedah but today you see so many forms and practices of Islam’.

So, when we are prone to fighting and quarreling amongst even ourselves, how can we expect people like Donald Trump and his supporters to know who we really are and why they came to this Anti-Islam and Anti-Muslim standpoint.

It’s all due to the fact that ignorance breeds foolhardiness and in today’s challenging and confusing times what is easily duped into thinking that he or she is right and all others are so damn wrong and ought to be destroyed! what a shame for even the one who is raging to destroy others will in the next second, minute, hour, day or week, month, year also cease to exist!

In these End Times, as Muslims must be steadfast in our faith. We must clearly know more about what we profess and strive to be as good a Muslim that we can be by practicing what we preach. We need to be street smart and know how best to go about safely when we are in areas where such Islamophobes are living.

Do not take for granted that you will be protected by the law enforcement authorities. Gujarat Muslims learnt the hard way for many Hindu policemen themselves massacred them. The Prophet foretold this sad situation of his Ummah in these Akhirul Zaman for we will be as large in numbers as the froth at the end of the ocean waves but powerless because we are in disarray. No unity. Constantly bickering and argumentative.

My advice ~ Be true Muslims. Not just a facade of what we imagine or pretend to be. May Allah guide us all. Ameen.

Surviving these End Times

Amanah

Isn’t it obvious that those ruling over us today are not really too bothered about upholding the Trust @ ‘Amanah’ that is enjoined upon those who are seeking the power and authority to rule a nation?

Over here in Malaysia, the very person who is the Chief Executive Officer of the Federal Government stands accused of misappropriating quite a huge amount of funds that should otherwise be used to prosper the nation.

The way certain key figures who were starting investigations into the matter were unceremoniously removed from their positions and yes men appointed as their replacements. Lately we saw, a ruling Menteri Besar who had done no grievous wrong be pressured to resign and was replaced with one who has no track record of being useful in the progress and development of the state in concern.

Amanah @ Trust is so missing from our country today. An obvious Sign of these End Times. The Prophet told us that in the days preceding Doomsday, we wll be ruled by those who are amongst the worst from the people.

That prophecy of Khatamun Nabiyyi, Muhammad Sal Mustafa, Sallallahu Alaihi Wassallam has come to pass. Be prepared to survive on our own. Trust not those who will not even blink in sacrificing us just to protect their interests.

Each of us need to be self-sufficient and take care of our needs and wants by ourselves.

21st century Muslim ~ Knows the past, deals with current problems!

Chapter Two

Muslims are currently being the most vilified people on Earth yet at the same time draw hundreds of thousands if not millions of people into our fold. Those who were Disbelievers before this but are so very curious to find out more about Islam by either checking out the hundreds of websites sharing information about Islam and attending talks and lectures by prominent Callers to Islam such as the popular Dr.Hj.Zakir Naik, Abdur Raheem Greene, Syeikh Yusuf Estes, Sheikh Khalid Yasin, Sheikh Hamza Yusuf and many others.

To those of us who are living in these times where the human advancements in the field of Science & Technology has in a way brought people closer through the advent of the worldwide internet network of digital websites and telecommunication technologies, learning about the oceans of knowledge and information stored online and accessible by wired and wireless connections.

We are truly living in a time of both the good, the bad and the ugly side of humankind which has elevated human society in one way and also destroyed it in another. In countries which have a fair amount of development, proper infrastructure and good telecommunications, utilizing the internet network has become part and parcel of our daily lives and we often surf the web through our mobile smartphones, tablets, laptops and desktop personal computers.

With just a click of a button, we are able to seek information about anything through our telecommunication gadgets and devices in a split second. Information that before this would have taken the Seeker of Knowledge months if not years to learn and discover is now made available instantly through the trillions of digital files stored extensively in the archives of the webservers.

People of before who lived in times yearned for messages or news about some important matters or incidents that would take much time to be delivered to its intended recipients now take just a few seconds to be displayed in full, vivid color to the seeking eyes of modern day mankind. We today are so fortunate to be able to access and use all these modern technological telecommunication marvels yet many of us at times do abuse and misuse all these.

Instead of using the internet to enrich ourselves with useful knowledge and information, many of us waste away our precious times by surfing on websites that only cloud our judgments and contaminate our souls. Instead of utilizing the web to spread the Truth about Islam and to help others learn about their birthrights to be fellow true servants of Allah, we get bogged down with wasteful squabbles and strife amongst ourselves in matters involving disruptive politics, religious and racial tensions.

Surely, we should know better than to argue with those who are fools and recalcitrants! There is a famous saying:

Do not argue with a fool

At times, we would good naturedly pass a comment on a discussion online or give our opinion sincerely but then like clockwork some idiot or mindless fool would come and insult us or ridicule us for no rhyme or reason.

Should we entertain such uncouth buffoons?

Surely not! Just learn to walk away from that unnecessary encounter and remove our self from that online discussion or thread. It’s just not worth our precious time. Let the fools occupy themselves with such needless banter or squabbles. We have much more better things to do than to argue with such idiots. Period.

On the authority of Abu Musa al-Ash’aari (Radhiallahu Anhu), the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Alaihi Wassallam said:

“The likeness of a righteous friend and an evil friend, is the likeness of a (musk) perfume seller and a blacksmith. As for the perfume seller, he may either bestow something on you, or you may purchase something from him, or you may benefit from his sweet smell. And as for the blacksmith, he may either burn your clothes, or you may be exposed to his awful smell.”

Therefore it is incumbent upon us 21st century Muslims to pick and choose with whom we keep company or become friends with in order to keep our sanity and self-respect. If you want to be one who is knowledgeable then mix or keep company with those who are learned in matters concerning our Deen of Al Islam and learn to engage only with those who might benefit you with their righteous knowledge or they from yours.

We should not get ourselves entangled with matters that are of no concern to us or detrimental to our well being or that of the Ummah and general human society in which we live in. The current world is already chockful of crazy trouble makers and social instigators. True knowledgeable Muslims need not add themselves to the mess.

We should help uphold justice and the truth. We are duty bound by Allah’s Commandment to us to ‘ Invite all (mankind) to the Way of thy Lord (Islam) with beautiful preaching and ways that are best and most gracious!’ This is the meaning of the verse in Surah An Nahl, Chapter 16 Verse 125 in the Glorious Qur’an.

We must master whatever forms of technology and fields of knowledge that will help us to share the Truth about Islam with those who are hungry for the Love and Mercy of Allah the Most Compassionate and Most Merciful. Remember! We are due to stand before Him on the Day of Judgment in the Yaum al Akhirat.

Being a true servant of Allah in current times. Is it possible?

Chapter One

When we come across news reports of Muslims everywhere being faced with extreme challenges by those who hate them purely for the fact that the Muslim worships Allah, the Unseen God and live a spartan life avoiding all the forbidden items and acts which the Kaffirs @ the Disbelievers enjoy in this earthly realm, the question arises whether we can stay true to our faith?

It all depends on the strength of faith of each individual Muslim, male or female and as to what the particular Muslim has come to learn and profess about Al Islam? This conviction or grasp of Iman @ Faith and Aqeedah @ Creed of the Muslim differs from person to person.

Not everyone has the tenacity and strength in him or herself to hold firmly on to their belief in Allah and the prophet-hood of Muhammad Sallallahu Alaihi Wassallam. As we come to the age of understanding and learn about our faith, each of us will in a way start believing in Allah and the Prophet Muhammad according to our own level of intellect and knowledge. What one understands about the attributes of Allah depends on one’s own level of comprehension.

A rational Muslim ought to know the difference between his or her own ideas about Allah and what Allahu Ta’ala describes about Himself!

To know about Allah, the simplest way would be to study the Glorious Qur’an. In Surah Al Ikhlas, Chapter 112 Verses 1 to 4. Allah commands Prophet Muhammad to tell the Unbelievers that He, Allah is One.

That Allah is Eternal (Absolute). That He @ Allah was not born nor did He Beget and that there is nothing whatsoever liken unto Him!

The Chapter of Sincerity.

The Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu Alaihi Wassallam ~ Peace be upon him) spent 13 long years in Makkah just preaching to the pagan Arabian Quraysh merchant tribe to which he belonged about worshiping Allah, the One True God and not to the numerous idols that they had strayed into false worship over the years since the times of Prophet Ibrahim ~ Abraham Alaihis Salam.

13 long years just calling the pagan Arabs to worship Allah and nothing else. The commandment to pray was not revealed yet. Just coming to terms that ‘There is no God but Allah’ and that ‘Muhammad was Allah’s Last and Final Messenger!

The Blessed Prophet didn’t call upon the Arabs of Makkah to idolize or worship him but only to come to terms that only Allah the Almighty deserves to be worshiped! History records the Holy Messenger of Allah to have refused the offer to be made a King over the Arabs throughout the Arabian Peninsular and all other offers of riches and beautiful women as his reward provided he gives up calling the people to believe in the One True God!

For 4745 days and nights, Muhammad Sallallahu Alaihi Wassallam’s mission in calling his fellow Makkah pagan Qurayshi Arabs to attest that ‘There’s no other God worthy of Worship save for Allah Ar Rahman Ar Raheem. Allah the Most Compassionate, Most Merciful.

13 long insufferable years where he faced the most recalcitrant, most stubborn, argumentative, quarrelsome Arabs whose atrocities against the Mercy of Allah for the entire Universes were at times so unmentionable! I dare say that none of us mankind today would be willing to stay so patient, so true to this mission to convey the Truth of al Islam to others as what our Blessed Prophet of Allah did.

When he was forced to migrate and escape to Yathrib which later came to be known as Madinah al Munawwarah with his closest Sahabah @ Companion Sayyidina Abu Bakr As Siddiq, he spent another 10 long years in teaching the Muslims about how to live life as Believers in Almighty Allah and perfected the Revelations from Allah Azza Wa Jalla for us who strive daily to become Abdullah’s @ true servants of Allah!

There’s no other true faith from Allah that exists to this day except for Islam. We just need to know and learn as to which are right and what are false? Always refer to just the true authentic teachings of Muhammad Khatamun Nabiyyi and refrain from following latter-day false prophets or syaikhs.

Click here to watch a BBC documentary about the most celebrated Messenger of Allah the Most Loving Creator of us all.

Faith in Allah will not be established if one does not learn from what the Messenger of Allah relayed to us. If one wants to learn about Allah then one must learn about Allah from he whom Allah the Supreme Creator sent to us as our Guide.

The Glorious Quran is the Verbatim Final Guidance from Allah our Lord Most High and is the absolute Last Testament and Scripture from Ar Rahman for us to refer to in knowing how to live this earthly existence and in the Akhirat ~ Hereafter.

Muhammad Sallallahu Alaihi Wassallam was the living embodiment of the Glorious Quran and his example came to be known as his Sunnah. Every Muslim worthy of the title must study and learn all that he or she possibly can in this life. True Mukmins must also practice the Sunnah of the Blessed Messenger to the best of their abilities and learn not to innovate or deviate from the authentic practices of Muhammad al Mustafa, the chosen one.

To learn this, one can go here to read up about the compilation of the Prophet’s Sayings which are known as the Hadiths. The website has the entire collections and compilations of the Examples of the Prophet, His Sayings and anything related to the religious practices in Al Islam.

We must also learn to differentiate between what is a religious practice enjoined for in Islam and what are local customs and traditions of every individual society of humankind. We are humans but we differ from one another by our selfs, our traditions, our customs, our food, our drinks and the way we view anything.

Muslims here in Malaysia live differently from those in Saudi Arabia, the Middle East, Africa, United States of America, the United Kingdom, Europe, Australia, India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Thailand, Burma, Philippines, Singapore, Brunei, China and even Indonesia.

The way we do things are different from each other but in faith, we bow to the One Supreme Creator, Allahu Ta’ala. So, for one to liken all Muslims as one would be inaccurate. Yes, we are One Ummah but when looked at closer we can see some differences. Which are mostly with regard to the customs, social traditions and cultures which gives us our own separate identities. Our languages are different. Yet our unifying language of faith is Arabic.

Solat

No matter who we are, when we pray to Allah, we pray in Arabic. We might not be fluent in Arabic or be able to speak and converse in it but when we Ruqu’ @ bow down to Allah, we recite the same praises, ‘Subhana Rabbiyal Adzhimi Wabihamdih!’ All praises be to Allah the Most Powerful!

When we Sujood @ Prostrate before Allah, we recite ‘Subhana Rabbiyal Aq’la Wabihamdih!’ All praises be to Allah, Lord Most High!

That my dear brothers and sisters is the same throughout the entire Universes.

Mahaguru58

Christians have no right to use ‘Allah’ to describe their Trinitarian ‘God’.

Malaysia has been rocked by the demands of the Catholic Christian Church to be allowed to use the term ‘ALLAH’ to replace the word ‘Tuhan’ which is the correct translation for the word ‘God’ in their Malay translations of their Christian Bible!

Such a preposterous demand naturally has raised the ire of the country’s Muslims and as a result several major protests have been held by them to demand the Catholic Christian Church of Malaysia to drop and cease from such a pursuit!

The Catholic Christians refuse to budge and have resorted to take the matter to court insisting that they be allowed to use the term ‘ALLAH’ in place of the proper Malay word ‘ Tuhan’  to describe their Trinitarian concept of God.

Now, such a matter surely ought to have come under the purview of the Keepers of Islam here in the 9 Malay Sultanates in the Malay Peninsular but surprisingly to this date, we have yet to hear of the Malay Rulers Council coming up with a collective decree prohibiting the usage of the term ‘ALLAH’ by the Christians and other Non Muslims to describe their deity or deities!

When the Malay Rulers fail to act as one, the resulting mayhem has turned into a religious and legal quagmire with the case unnecessarily being heard in the courts and sort of caught in a judicial tug of war between the offended Muslims and the recalcitrant Catholic Church leaders!

Now, let us get down to the basic Principles of Faith that Muslims believe in and what do the Christians in turn believe in as well.

Muslims believe that ‘There is only One God!’

In the Holy Quran. Chapter 112 in the Surah Al Ikhlas ( Chapter of Sincerity) , Allah the Almighty commands us to say that He is One!

112:1

Transliteration

“Qul huwa Allahu Ahad!”

Say, “He is Allah , [who is] One,

112:2
Transliteration

Allahu assamad

Allah , the Eternal Refuge.
112:3
Transliteration

Lam yalid walam yoolad

He neither begets nor is born,
112:4
Transliteration

Walam yakun lahu kufuwan ahad

Nor is there to Him any equivalent.”

Allah clarifies that He is only One! He is the Eternal, the Absolute. He was not born nor did He procreate. And that there is None like Him!

Whereas the Christians have always been referring to their Trinitarian Concept of God as God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Ghost!

A 3 in 1 concept of God. Even at this stage we can see the difference between what we Muslims believe as our Supreme Lord Almighty, Allahu Rabbul Alamin @ Allah, Lord of the Worlds to be just One Supreme God whereas the Christians come up with a Godhead of 3 different characteristics of what they believe to be God!

I am not here to deny the Christians their liberty to worship whatever they want as even Allah the Almighty has commanded us Muslims @ Believers in Allah to say to the Christians and other Disbelievers who are addressed as the Kaffirun in the Arabic language of the Holy Quran in the particular Surah Al Kafirun. Chapter 109.

109:1
Transliteration
Qul ya ayyuha alkafiroon
Say, “O disbelievers,
109:2
Transliteration
La aAAbudu ma taAAbudoon
I do not worship what you worship.
109:3
Transliteration

Wala antum AAabidoona maaAAbud

Nor are you worshipers of what I worship.
109:4
Transliteration

Wala ana AAabidun maAAabadtum

Nor will I be a worshipper of what you worship.
109:5
Transliteration

Wala antum AAabidoona maaAAbud

Nor will you be worshippers of what I worship.
109:6
Transliteration

Lakum deenukum waliya deen

For you is your religion, and for me is my religion.”
In as simple and crystal clear a manner has Allah commanded us Muslims to say to the Disbelievers in Him that we do not worship what they worship nor do we force them to come worship Allah without their own free will and in faith.

There is an established understanding of the freedom to worship whatever that they want and that we are all to come to such a truce to allow each other the right to practice our own individual faiths.

Over the years, Muslims and Christians have in a way minded our own business and let the other practice their faith in relative peace and harmony here in Malaysia.

Save for the few odd cases where we had witnessed the apostatizing of Azalina Jailani @ Lina Joy and some other individual Malays to the Christian faith, we have been trying our best to keep the peace here but lately there has been a concerted effort on the part of the Christians especially that of the Catholic denomination to intrude into the realm of the Islamic faith by their wanting to use ‘ALLAH’ to now describe what they worship?

If we are to do a search online as to whether Christians and Muslims worship the same ‘ALLAH’ as what these Catholic Christian Church of Malaysia is so adamant in using, we will find sites such as this which protest loudly of any such insinuations!

At least those Kaffirs have the decency to be steadfast in their Disbelief unlike the Catholic Christians that we have here in Malaysia!

For no rhyme or reason, the Catholic Christian Church leaders have harmed the peaceful co-existence that we have been enjoying here in Malaysia and caused the lawyers shown below to rise up and defend the sacredness of the term ‘ALLAH’ by which True God Almighty addresses Himself from being associated with the Disbelief of the Christians!

It all started with this Catholic Christian Priest who started the whole issue!

Some people just never learn! They take pleasure in rocking the boat and are not bothered as to who gets drowned in the process!

I for one hope and pray that the Catholic Christian Church leaders concerned will come to their senses and return to using ‘Tuhan’ as the appropriate choice of word to describe their ‘God’ in their Malay language Bibles as they should.

I also pray that our ‘Keepers of Islam’ will really do what they are supposed to do which is to look out for the sanctity and preservation of our Islamic Faith’s sacredness from being polluted by others such as what the Catholic Christian Church here has done.

It’s just not right for our Malay Sultans to play safe and choose to remain silent on this most important and sensitive matter. At least the Sultan of Selangor, His Royal Highness, Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah had the courage and forevision to prohibit the usage of the term ‘ALLAH’ by any Non Muslims in his State of Selangor.

Daulat Tuanku! Long Live the Sultan!

I hope the other Sultans and Raja Melayu will soon follow suit! Insya Allah.

Malaysians generally are a peace loving people and we seldom get so riled up unlike other countries where the people are quick to run riot and kill each other over the smallest of matters.

Religion is a very, very sensitive matter for us and only those who do not practice what they tend to preach will want to stir up any such troubles amongst us who are from multi-ethnic and multi-faiths living together here in this blessed land. I hope that they will think of the consequences of creating unnecessary strife here amongst us, mostly peace loving Malaysians.

Ramadan Mubarak to all Muslims!

Ramadan Mubarak

Assalamualaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh.

Ya Ikhwanul Muslimin na wal Muslimat,

We are blessed by Allah Azza Wa Jalla to be living today and be in the blessed month of Ramadan al Mubarak once again. Alhamdulillah!

As you all know, this is no ordinary month! Ramadan is the sacred month for us who are Muslims and Mukmins.

Surah al Baqarah Verse 185

Transliteration

Shahru ramadana allatheeonzila feehi alqur-anu hudan linnasiwabayyinatin mina alhuda walfurqanifaman shahida minkumu ashshahra falyasumhu waman kanamareedan aw AAala safarin faAAiddatun min ayyaminokhara yureedu Allahu bikumu alyusra wala yureedubikumu alAAusra walitukmiloo alAAiddata walitukabbiroo AllahaAAala ma hadakum walaAAallakum tashkuroon

Sahih International

The month of Ramadhan [is that] in which was revealed the Qur’an, a guidance for the people and clear proofs of guidance and criterion. So whoever sights [the new moon of] the month, let him fast it; and whoever is ill or on a journey – then an equal number of other days. Allah intends for you ease and does not intend for you hardship and [wants] for you to complete the period and to glorify Allah for that [to] which He has guided you; and perhaps you will be grateful.

Without a doubt, this month is the most awaited in our Islamic calendar every year for it is the month where we are commanded to fast from before the break of dawn till the sun sets.

During our fast, we are to abstain from eating and drinking, refrain from engaging in any acts that will nullify our fast, increase our acts of prayer and worship of Allah the Almighty. Show more care and attention to the poor and needy. Not commit any acts that are forbidden in our faith of Al Islam and to constantly be in dhikrullah.

We are encouraged to break our fasts in a moderate manner and to join in the congregational taraweeh solats at our local masjids. We are to pay our zakat fitrah and to strengthen family ties and mend relationships. Ask and seek forgiveness from one another and to bond as an ummah worthy of Rasul Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam’s Syafa’at in the Yaum al Akhirat.

At the end of Ramadan we are to celebrate Eid al Fitri as our successful completion of our saum for the sake of none other but Allahu Ta’ala, Rabbul Alamin. Insya Allah. May Allah bless and accept our Saum and reward us with His Forgiveness and enter us into His Jannah. Amin. Ya Rabbal Alamin.

Malaysian Muslims Dilemma

Today Malaysia’s 14th Supreme King was officially installed as the nation’s Constitutional Monarch. The King is also by Law regarded as the ‘Head of the Islamic Faith’ here in this so called Muslim nation.

Quite a contradiction really when we all know that the country isn’t ruled exactly according to the Syariah Laws of the Al Quran or according to the enjoinments of the authentic Hadiths of the Blessed Messenger of Allah!

What we have is more of a facade of Islamic superiority when in actuality it is the Constitution of Malaysia which are based upon the British Secular Laws which still prevail over the Kingdoms of Malaysia.

Yes, you read me right! Kingdoms! 9 Malay Sultanates taking turns to rule as the Yang Di Pertuan Agong @ Supreme King every 5 years on a rotation cycle.

On paper, it all looks very smurfy but in reality, the King is just a constitutional monarch. The real power is wielded by the Executive. Namely an elected Prime Minister who heads the ruling coalition of political parties who won in the General Elections. Funny isn’t it?

For all the pomp and the pageantry that goes hand in hand with the royalty sitting in state, the real deal is that it is the PM who calls the shots!

Now, here in Malaysia, Muslims are finding it tough to get someone to speak up for their faith or to clear up any misconceptions that involves the religion of Islam. The enemies of Islam here in Malaysia are having a field day wreaking havoc every now and then by making inroads into the sanctity of Islam and raise endless issues after issue just to make life miserable for the Believers!

Not one leader or ruler has the guts or the spine so to speak to champion the cause of Ad Deenul Islam! Not one Supreme King of Malaysia has been on record to have actually exercised his powers to stamp out the menace of Islamophobic rabblerousers out there amongst this nation’s political circus!

I for one don’t see this scenario changing for the better with the installation of the latest ‘Head of Islam’! I’m a bit more interested to see what the Deputy Head of Islam of Malaysia @ the Sultan of Kelantan is going to do when he takes over as the 15th Supreme King of Malaysia for he is reported to be religiously inclined?

In the meantime, its every Muslim for him or herself! Just stick to the dictates of our True Faith as commanded by Allah the Almighty and enjoined by His Prophet Muhammad Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam!

Malaysian Muslims Dilemma is that we have no one amongst the so called ruling elite whom we can depend on at the moment!

Sheeesh….

Maulid of Rasul Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam. Celebrating his Legacy of Al Islam.

Assalamualaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh.
May Peace, Mercy and Blessings of Almighty Allah be upon those of you who believe in Him, The Most Compassionate, Most Benevolent God of us all.
Ameen.

Today, marks the 1441th anniversary of the birth of Allah’s Greatest Messenger to the entire universes, the Blessed Prophet Muhammad ibni Abdullah, Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam.


His enduring Message of Peace and Salvation remains as a permanent guide and shining beacon to those whose hearts and minds are alighted with the burning desire to seek the Truth and claim their birthrights to be true worshipers of The Only Absolute Supreme Creator of us all.


Islam is the only God given faith that was taught to our Father, the blessed Prophet Adam Alaihis Salam and from him to our Mother Sayyidatuna Hawwa Radhiallahu Anha.


From the union of our blessed parents came forth the multitudes of tribes and people who through the passage of Time, spread throughout the world and established the nations and countries which are so diverse and evolved various cultures and civilizations that mark the Greatness of Ar Rahman Who allows us the freedom of choice yet never left us without a warner, a guide to lead us back to His Salvation.


Islam stands forth as a shining beacon to all who seek God’s Mercy through the ages and by all the signs and prophecies of Muhammad Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam, it is obvious that we are today living in the Last Ages.


The period of Time which has been promised to us where mankind will come to a stage where being religious will be considered strange and at times even offensive!


People nowadays would not bat an eye at those who adopt the most perverse traits of behavior and mannerisms which are void of all earlier norms and decencies and accept such uncouthness as part and parcel of so called modern ways of life but would frown and scowl at those who choose to be religious and return to the ways that are enjoined in all forms of faith and beliefs.


This is the sad reality of our present life.


On the authority of Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) that the Prophet Muhammad Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam (peace be upon him) said: “Islam began as something strange and will return as something strange as it began, so give glad tidings to the strangers.”

This Hadith is Sahih and was reported from the Messenger of Allah Rahmatulil Alamin (Mercy to the Universes).

A group of Hadith scholars added in another narration: It was asked: O Messenger of Allah! Who are the strangers?


He replied: “Those who perform good deeds while others make mischief.”
In another wording: “Those who correct what the people have corrupted of my Sunnah” (whatever is reported from the example of the Prophet).


And in another wording: “They are the strangers among their tribes.” In another wording: “They are the righteous few among the evil masses.”

What is meant here is that the “Ghuraba” (strangers)” are the people of integrity and that Jannah (Paradise) and happiness are for those strangers who will rectify what others have corrupted.


When the conditions change, matters become unclear, and the righteous people are few, they adhere steadfastly to the truth and to the religion of Allah.


They sincerely worship Allah Alone, perform Salah (prayer), pay Zakah (obligatory charity), observe Sawm (fast), perform Hajj (pilgrimage), and all other acts of worship.

Sahih International

And who is better in speech than one who invites to Allah and does righteousness and says, “Indeed, I am of the Muslims.”

Islam appeared as something strange in Makkah al Mukarramah where only a few of the pagan Arabs accepted the faith while most showed enmity towards it and rejected the Noble Prophet Muhammad Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam (peace be upon him) whom they harmed along with his Sahabah (Companions of the Prophet) who embraced Islam.

Then it reached Madinah al Munawwarah the city that those Companions who had the ability migrated to. It continued to be regarded as something strange until the number of Muslims increased in Madinah and other cities.

People then embraced Islam in crowds after Allah made it possible for His Prophet (peace be upon him) to conquer Makkah.

Islam was viewed as strange by people at a time when most were heathens associating others with Allah. They worshiped idols, prophets, saints, trees, stones, and the like.

Allah Azza Wa Jalla guided whom He pleased through His Final Messenger Muhammad Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam (peace be upon him) and through his Companions. Thus, they entered Islam, worshipped Allah sincerely abandoning their idols, prophets, and saints.



They did not offer prayer, prostrate, or call upon anyone except Allah. They only sought assistance or cure from Him (may He be Exalted and Glorified).


They did not supplicate or seek help from the dead, idols, trees, stones, planets, Jinn (creatures created from fire), or angels. Instead, they worshipped Allahu Rabbul Alamin (Lord of the Worlds) alone. Such are the Ghuraba (strangers).


When a vast number of people shed their inhibitions and adopt a lifestyle of lewdness and uncultured lifestyles, real Muslims remain modest and stay true to the dictates of Almighty Allah and the enjoinments of His Final Messenger.


Some Arab tourists coming to Malaysia forget that Allahu Rabbul Jalil is All Seeing and All Aware of what they do no matter that they have traveled away from the borders of the Lands of the Anbiya Iwal Mursalin.


They change into Western attire and shed their hijabs going about in KL’s shopping malls like the Kuffars. I have had many experiences of asking such folks as to why they do so and the usual run of the mill replies would be that ‘It’s okay in Malaysia!’


Really???


I would then ask,” You mean to tell me that Allah can’t see you here?”


and that would send them scurrying away from this troublesome fellow Muslim who only means well and just wishes to remind them that Ar Rahman is All Seeing, Al Aware no matter that one is in the most exclusive 5 or 6 star hotels or luxurious resorts anywhere in the world!!!


End Times Muslims practicing Al Islam are referred to as the Ghuraba. Strangers adopting a Way of Life that sets us apart from the crazy, hedonistic masses embroiled in a destructive lifestyle that leaves many devastated and destroyed both physically and spiritually in the true sense of the word!


Let’s listen to Sheikh Khalid Yasin talk about this subject of being ‘Ghuraba~ Strangers’:
Towards the End of Time there will be those who hold fast to the religion of Allah while others fall by the wayside. No matter what comes their way!



I recall a nasyeed by Nagore Al Haj EM Haniffa, the famous Indian Muslim singer where among the meanings of the lyrics of one of his songs~’Iraivan Mel Annai’ (Verily before God) were: “Itiyyin munayyil nirittiyye pothum, Iman ilekke maatom!” @ Even if we are pressed by the tips of the (kuffars) spears, we will not shed our faith!”

Everytime I listen to this song, my eyes well up with my tears and the hairs on my hands stand up, conjuring up that image of devout Muslims who remain steadfast holding on to their Iman no matter that the Kaffirs held them captive, with deadly sharpened steel piercing their chests in order for them to abandon their faith in Allah!


I have read of such instances taking place in Gujerat, India when the Hindus ran riot and massacred the Indian Muslims there. Also in Bosnia Herzegovina, Chechnya, Kashmir, etc.


Such are the true believers of Allah the Almighty God of the entire worlds.


When disbelief, disobedience, and evil increase, these devout strangers will remain obedient to Allah and His religion. They will be granted Paradise and Happiness with a goodly reward in this life and the Hereafter.


Its not something that most humans nowadays would be inclined to do. To remain conservative and hold firm to the tenets of the Islamic principles whilst the majority of the human society is steeped in all kinds of hedonistic pursuits.


The Muslims of Malaysia are today besieged by all kinds of challenges both to their faith and their ancestral heritage or customs. Many go about oblivious of what the true Islamic teachings are?


If we are to go check as to the knowledge of Islam that most of today’s so called Muslims here possess, we will be dismayed to see the shallow grasp of the fundamentals of Islamic theology that most of the wayward ones know of or put to practice in their daily lives?


There are also a growing number of pseudo intellectuals amongst the Malaysian Muslims who preach pluralistic views of the man-made faiths and false beliefs putting Islam on par with the kuffars misguidance.


These are the viruses amongst us who ought to be eliminated before they corrupt and ruin the misguided masses. It doesn’t help in having cowardly ministers who would rather go with the hedonistic flow instead of standing firm when it comes to the matter of upholding the true principles of Islamic Syaria and help educate the nation.


How can they do so when at home their own wife and kids do not adhere to the basic rules and regulations of Al Islam? The condescending ones often preach what they themselves do not put to practice! All they can do is fall back onto the time tested excuse that this here is a plural society.


A true Muslim leader will lead all others to acknowledging Allahu Rabbul Alamin and guide all mankind to the Truth of Islam. Not let the kuffars remain in their ignorance and damn themselves to an eternal suffering in the Hellfires.


Dakwah al Islamiyyah is only given lip service. I often witness the spectacle of these insincere heads of departments and ministries put up a show of religiousness when in actuality they dare not go against the superiors who remain steeped in all kinds of vices and corruption.


To expect the alternative lineup of Islam labelled group of wannabe rulers to walk their talk is just another series of heart wrenching frustration waiting to happen for they too lack the tenacity to go the Way of Rasulullah Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam.


At times, one shudders watching the ferocity of their verbal venom spew forth castigating every other person but themselves and we wonder as to the state of their mental health and anxiously await their coming to their senses? Even then if they will be man or woman enough to do just that at all?


To those of us who are Muslims and want to be better Believers in Allah and His Messenger, please get ourselves affirmed in our Iman and upgrade our Amals.


Let’s study our Faith and help spread the Message of Rasulullah Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam with a renewed vigor and strength of purpose.


Rectify our erroneous ways and return to our Fitrah being proper servants of Almighty Allah.


We live a temporal life here on Earth. Let’s not be caught unawares in the paths leading to Jahannam but rather let’s work towards seeking Allah’s Mercy and His Forgiveness.


Do you remember ‘The Final Khutba of The Last Prophet’?


Well, just to refresh your memory, here is a reading by Sheikh Yusuf Islam, the former popstar Cat Stevens, who is so articulate in his speech and such an illustrious Caller to Islam:



In the spirit of celebrating the Maulid of Rasulullah Khataman Nabiyyi, Muhammad Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam, let’s offer our Salawats upon the Blessed Messenger of Allah and praise him with our hearts and minds as best as we possibly can!



Sallallahu Ala Muhammad! Sallallahu Alaihi Wassallam! Sallallahu Ala Muhammad! Sallallahu Alaihi Wassallam!
