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 elected officials assuming power swear an oath in the Name of Allah then commit CBT!

As you can see, when the former Malaysian Prime Minister Dato Seri Haji Mohd Najib bin Tun Haji Abdul Razak took the Oath of Office as the 6th Prime Minister heading the Barisan Nasional coalition back then, he swore the oath in the Name of Allah by uttering ‘Wallahi! Wabillahi! Wattallahi!’ meaning ‘I swear by Allah! I swear in the Name of Allah! I swear to Allah!’ that carries the meaning ‘that I with sincerity will carry out all my obligations of the office with all my capabilities that I will be truly loyal to Malaysia with all the special (powers or authority) that may be granted by the Supreme King.’

We all know what ensued during his tyrannic administration since that day until the scandal of his ravenous plundering of Malaysia’s Treasury and subsequent explosive scandal of pocketing billions of Ringgits in his own personal bank accounts and those of his notorious Hermes, Birkin luxurious handbags and other precious baubles, expensive jewelry and watches loving over domineering wife, Rosmah Mansor! They committed grievous and serious Criminal Breaches of Trust that has left both local and foreign governments and people from all around the world shocked at the level of kleptocracy that this thieving political leader and his cronies have committed!

Malaysians who had been suffering under this narcissistic kleptocrat misrule having to fork out more and more of the ever depreciating in value Malaysian Ringgit finally came to their senses and voted out the BN, ending the regime’s reign of terror after 60 years of being oppressed and kept divided along ethnic and religious lines.

The main issue that I am raising here in this article is why the office of the Supreme King of the Malaysian Federation silent and utterly powerless to either take the treasonous former Prime Minister for having committed the most serious and severe Criminal Breach of Trust that this country or even the whole wide world has ever seen?

Watch previous US Attorney General Loretta Lynch and other US Department of Justice officials disclose details of the most serious and humongous kleptocracy case that even the Americans had ever seen or handled before in history:

Despite all these exposures and the presentation of all kinds of incriminating evidence against the MO1 @ Malaysian Official # 1 > who else but the 6th Malaysian Prime Minister Dato Seri Mohd Najib Tun Razak, no legal action came to be taken against him here in Malaysia by his appointed kowtowing Malaysian Government corrupt ministers and officials shielding him from any repercussions in any manner.

Even the United States Attorney General Jeff Sessions says that this 1MDB scandal is the largest kleptocracy case the US has ever seen! Yet the way our country’s Supreme King (previous and current) remained [pardon the language] deaf, dumb or blind to the way the 6th Prime Minister broke his Oath and Swearing of Allegiance before the Supreme King in the Name of Allah by committing those crimes!

So, as I type these words here, the culprit continues to issue press statements talking big and even ridiculously questioning whatever decisions are being taken by the current 7th Malaysian Prime Minister YAB Tun Dr.Mahathir Mohamad. Is the Supreme King just a Constitutional Monarch with no actual powers?

Powerful lawyers such as YB Gobind Singh Deo even spoke at length at public talks exposing how our former AG Tan Sri Gani Patail was swiftly removed by Najib Razak to prevent him from serving notice and taking legal action against the 6th PM! All evidences are there yet to this day, Najib Razak has not been charged, not arrested and still free to go around as he damn well pleases.

Why is the culprit still not being arrested and charged in court for his crimes???

Oakland Women’s March 2018 by NomadNoor

Oakland Women’s March 2018

Well, I finally attended a version of the Women’s March. I went because my mom invited me and I had been on the fence about going for multiple reasons. It was a long and tiring event with my toddler – who thought it was the best thing ever aka hyper-sensory overload with a huge crowd to try and get lost in and give her mama a heart attack.

I remember when I heard about the first Women’s March in Washington D.C. that was through some relatives – not any people of color that I knew or even the local Muslim community was aware that this march was really going down until it started to get major media attention. Once the Women’s March got major media attention, it was too late for it to be affordable for most women in minority communities to attend if they desired to.

Going to the Oakland Women’s March I knew again I would be again encountering feminism defined by white women. I had to steel myself to the othering I knew I would experience and quite frankly almost turned over and slapped my alarm off to go back to sleep instead of going the morning of the march.

Instead, I went and I feel my feelings are justified by what I saw and experienced.

The Women’s March is for white feminists.

It was clear in the sea of white faces I encountered. It was clear based on the signs topics that minority community issues were not present just as it was clear in what bodies of specific communities were not present.

Is it better than nothing? Yes. Can white feminists do better? Yes.

However, the work to make space for communities and voices of color and other minorities is NOT the work of those communities but the work of the white feminist community.

Just as the work to remove systemic racism and discrimination as evidenced by how many white women and men vote for Trump’s blatantly racist discriminatory platform – is NOT the burden or work to shoulder for minorities.

Which is why I ended up closing down the chapter of Indivisible that I started in my small bedroom community and I stopped putting my energy and efforts into local politics because nothing will change until room is made at the table.

White activists are not interested in making room that is clear by when and where they host their meetings and how they do not invite the communities of color or organizations to the meetings nor amplify PoC work as they in their personal lives participate in the gentrification of these poor communities of color.

Too long I have heard too many white people say things that make it clear they are not woke to the reality that minorities in America experience on a daily basis.

There is always an excuse to be made for the usually white aggressor.

“He feared for his life.” Says the man with a gun having been trained at the police academy which includes hand to hand combat against an unarmed black body

“It’s company policy or I was just doing my job.” To explain why a minority is followed in a store or hired then fired for wearing their natural hair or covering in the case of a Muslim woman.

Coded racism is the most insidiously dangerous form within America. A white person does not have to mention African American or black – one can simply for example well they love their chicken and watermelon to signal they are talking about black folks. Why is it we as a community and society unable to talk openly about the reality of our history and present state?

Facts are facts. Our nation was founded on stolen land that we got through broken treaties and using germs, guns and steel in combination with the enslavement of an entire community of people based on the color of their skin. Divine right is what people in the past told themselves to sleep better at night just as people tell themselves they are saving a community and improving property values as have city councils ban tent cities, public toilets and living in RV/Tiny Homes during the gentrification half of the white flight cycle.

We Americans squirm at the thought of having an open dialogue about this and other topics. The reason it is so difficult to talk about is because we avoid it at all costs. Ownership of the atrocities committed in “order to create a more perfect Union,” has never been taken by those who gained and continue to gain power and privilege from those acts.

You reader, if you are an American citizen from the white community are not personally at fault for the historical atrocities although perhaps your ancestors are. You reader from the white community are at fault for not :

  1. Acknowledging you benefit from a system designed to oppress and disenfranchise others,

  2. Doing nothing to change the system and

  3. Not leveraging your privilege for those without it.

I think it speaks volumes that my government can apologize and create a memorial for Japanese American internment victims which happened during World War II but a National Museum for African American history lagged so long before it was even completed and opened. Hell! No one from the United States government has ever apologized to the African American community and African nations for slavery.

Why is that? The United Nations recently declared that the United States of America should pay reparations to the African American community.

See the article here on PBS.com –https://www.pbs.org/newshour/nation/reparations-african-americans-un

I personally think the Restorative Justice model of handling conflict resolution would be the best way to handle the dialog about slavery in the United States.

Community of color have enough on their plates without also having to bare the burden of solving the white community’s love for racism and discrimination. Let’s name a few of these issues the communities of color are dealing with:

  1. Immigration – the lack of a path to citizenship for DACA recipients and unaccompanied minors and why documented immigration is so freaking expensive and takes so damn long.

2. Poverty – After more than 200 years of slavery of course the African American community didn’t have the generational wealth of the White community. This has continued to be cited as one of the biggest barriers to African American community moving towards societal gains.

Indigenous Americans continue to face the affects of poverty and inability to own the very land they live on in the Reservations.

Poverty is linked to the issues of substance abuse, “broken” families, crime, over all health (mental and physical), food security, violence and education that create a further uphill battle to break the cycle and culture of poverty within all communities of color.

  1. Systemic Racism – There is nothing that highlights this issue more than the mortality rate for African American women in the United States. There are no “protective,” factors i.e. Education, income etc that can save a black women when she is pregnant or giving birth than being cared for other than being in the care of other black women or men.

See the ProPublica article here – https://www.propublica.org/article/nothing-protects-black-women-from-dying-in-pregnancy-and-childbirth

The organizers of the Women’s March have a long way to go before its what it could be.

Participants in the Women’s March have a long way to go before they are what they could be.

Concrete changes would be:

1. Minority voices speak first. Why were they all the last to speak in Oakland?

2. Outreach to minority communities are i.e. The local church, Community Colleges, Masjid, connect and work with the local PoC organizations doing the work that was being done long before 45 got into office. I saw or heard nothing via my community connections. Why is that?

3. Create asks for concrete actions that those attending should do besides get out the vote for more majority “progressive” white candidates. Communities of color will see this as poverty pimping if you are not actually supporting their work and issues in a real way with tangible results for these various communities.

Middle East Squabbles ~ United they stand -Divided they will fall!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Like 3 evil tyrants from a fiction movie, the 3 leaders above [L to R – Egyptian President General Sisi, Saudi King Salman and 45th US President Donald J.Trump] stand in a launching ceremony together with their hands upon an illuminated orb representing the globe supposedly to fight the terrorists from ISIL, ISIS, DAESH and whatever else the Western world will conjure up in its efforts to destabilize the Middle East region further for the sake of protecting and safeguarding the illegitimate rogue regime of Israel occupying Palestine.

Now, Saudi Arabia has cut off all ties with Qatar, its neighbor accusing the latter of having ties with the terrorists and Iran. It’s other neighboring countries such as Egypt, Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates joined suit and also cut off all ties with the State of Qatar peninsula. As usual, this is very good news to the Zionist Israeli regime.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The whole of the Middle East is rich in oil. Petroleum to be exact. Allah the Almighty bestowed upon these dry, desert countries the abundance of Black Gold @ Oil so that they might benefit the Ummah of Muhammad Sallallahu Alaihi Wassallam yet these oil-rich Middle Eastern countries quarrel endlessly with one another enabling rogue nations from the West especially the British Imperialists and the US Neo-colonialists space to infiltrate, attack and conquer them easily back then and ship off the Zionist Jews to settle down and take over Palestine, where the site of the 1st Qibla for us Muslims, namely the blessed Masjidil Al Aqsa is located.

Remember the old adage,‘United we stand ; divided we fall?’

Well it is so true as far as the Middle Eastern countries are concerned. To this very day, despite all availability to all that Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Alaihi Wassallam left us in His Sunnah and authentic numerous Hadiths, these brothers in Islam are at each others throats 24/7 to the delight of all their mutual enemies who supply them with weapons of mass destruction so that they can kill off each others people much more easily and in a devastating manner.

Its all due to these Middle Eastern Arabs humongous egos.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The illustration above sort of portrays what sort of a terrible mess the Middle East region is blogged in.

Newly declassified US Department of Defense documents clearly show to what extent is the American Government deeply involved in destabilizing the region!

Here’s a few screenshots for you: 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

You get the general idea. The ones who are crying ‘Wolf!’ are usually the very people who started and orchestrated the whole thing going on in the Middle East. Having pseudo Kingdoms where the rulers are usually tyrannical despots hanging on to power ruthlessly is sort of the icing on the cake for the puppet masters of the White House in Washington, USA ; No.10, Downing Street in London, England and the Kremlin in Moscow, Russia not forgetting all the other crooks of the European Union.

Yet we can’t keep blaming the West for the troubles of Muslims in the Middle East, can we?

What kind of Muslims do not bat an eyelid about gas bombing their fellow Muslims in brotherly neighboring countries?

What sort of Believers are those who carpet bomb whole cities killing all and sundry whilst being safely cocooned in their palatial mansions guarded by legions of armed guards and soldiers?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This is the reality facing us today whom the Blessed Prophet rightly prophesied that in the Akhirul Zaman [TODAY], his ummah [US] will be numerous like the froth at the tip of the ocean waves. Numerous in numbers [more than 2 billion of Muslims] yet weak and powerless even against a tiny rogue regime like that of the Zionist Israelis! Not to even compare with the Armed Forces of the USA, the UK, EU, Australia, etc.

I don’t even have the heart to pray to Allah to save the Ummah in the Middle East for they are being oppressed by their own ‘Kings and Emirs’. The hypocrites!

Yet I know that we are not to despair and give up hope. So, here goes.

Ya Allahu Rabbul Alamin, send to us our Deliverer. Save the Mukmins from the Oppressors who are killing them! Protect those who pray and submit only to you O Rabbi.

Amin Ya Rabbal Alamin.
