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

Dr. Zakir Abdul Karim Naik

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

fearful trepidation

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

End of quote.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Syariah Laws Conundrum in Malaysia

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

Why is that so?

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

When Alims turn into Zalims!

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

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

Devil in Disguise or an Alim who’s a Zalim

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

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

Dried up Tumbleweed

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

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

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

 

MBA wishes Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri to all Muslims!

MBA Aidilfitri Well Wishes

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

Born pure free from sin

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Masya Allah.

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???

When even ‘Muslims’ are ignorant as to why we need to be modest in these End Times?

I came across this You Tube video where students in Pennsylvania State University, USA were asked to wear or adorn themselves with the Hijab ~ Muslim women’s head covering by Dr.Sam Richards. He wanted to get feedback from his Non Muslim female students as to how they felt after putting on the head covering?

Although in reality, it was awkward to see scantily clad female students adorn the head covering because they didn’t really cover themselves properly to merit wearing the hijab, it was interesting to hear them saying that they felt comfortable or safe when wearing the hijab. You see the reason why believing women are commanded by Allah to cover their decorations by lowering their head coverings over themselves is to hide the bosom from being seen by those who are not permitted to see them uncovered.

Watch this social experiment :

In the video above, a young woman did a social experiment where at first she walked the streets of New York wearing casual modern wear showing her body form leaving nothing much to the imagination. She was constantly catcalled and disturbed by strangers as she walked.

She then changed into Muslim women clothing and walked the same streets again. Imagine. No one paid any attention to her. Same young attractive lady. But this time around, she was dressed modestly. She was left alone by men. Free to walk wherever she wanted. Freedom.

This is the Supreme Wisdom of Allah the Most Merciful, our Lord Almighty, Who Created us. It is Allah Who Created our natural attraction to the opposite sex and gave us our natural desires towards them BUT Allah also gave us the Faculty of Reason and revealed to us His Guidelines as to how we should go about fulfilling that desire to procreate by way of lawful marriage with our desired spouse from our opposite sex.

He is The One Who Gave Life to us. Without His Will, nothing comes into being. He Decreed that we be born as male or female or as the Khunsa (born with both the male and female genitalia). No one is born as a transgender. That is the result of one’s own choice. Since Time immemorial, Mankind has been toying with the idea of transforming their gender according to their desires or inclinations either through their own free will or by the manipulation of one’s mindset by others who have their own agendas.

I recall an incident that I had with an American lady who visited our historic 200 over years Masjid Kapitan Keling in the City of Georgetown, Penang Island. My home state.

Masjid Kapitan Keling

After I welcomed her to our Masjid [mosque] and shared with her about the basic fundamentals of our Faith of Islam which is the Only True Revealed Faith for all Mankind from Allah the Almighty, we proceeded to the stage of the Q & A session where I invited her to ask me any questions that she might be having about Islam and us who are Muslims. We sat at my favorite corner along the marbled corridor of the Masjid.

She was a middle aged woman in her 30s and was quite eager to satisfy her curiosity as to learn why Islam forbids same sex unions or marriage? She was referring to homosexuality and lesbianism. Imagine that! Asking me about something that is considered as a taboo subject by some so called da’ee’s (Male Callers to Islam) or da’eeyah’s (Female Callers to Islam). No worries. Even though we were both in the Bait’ullah (Place of Worship towards Allah), I welcomed her question and used my Faculty of Reason given to me by Allah the Most Merciful and made use of my wisdom to give her the appropriate answer to her question.

So, how did I explain to her as to why Homosexuality and Lesbianism is Haram (Forbidden in Islam)?

Touchy subject. Tch..tch..tch..tch… Yet it was Allah Who Inspired me to answer her tactfully. In the House of Worship to Allah, our Lord Almighty.

An electric 3 pin plug

I showed her a 3 pin electric plug (photo above) which was nearby. I told her ” That 3 pin plug represents us who are males. Let’s imagine a scenario where we take that plug and rub it against another similar 3 pin plug. This is my symbolic example of a man who has unnatural sex with another man. Can there be procreation from their act?

She shook her head left to right indicating no. No procreation would take place.

I then pointed to her a 3 holed wall socket (photo on the left). I told her that wall socket should represent a woman. I asked her to imagine taking another similar wall socket and rubbing them against each other. Signifying the unnatural sexual act that lesbians resort to satisfy their carnal urges but with the same sex. A woman with another woman. Would there be any procreation taking place as a result of committing such an unnatural  sexual act?

She shook her head from left to right again meaning no. Nothing would be conceived.

I then asked her as to what would be the result if I was to take that 3 pin electrical power plug and insert it into the wall socket? Signifying the natural act of a male and a female having sexual intercourse.

She answered in the affirmative saying it would be a perfect fit and grinned sheepishly. I nodded and smiled as well.

Here we were discussing about such a sensitive topic yet being in the corridor of my favorite sanctuary, the Italian marbled floored of our historic world famous Masjid Kapitan Keling. Tricky situation, eh? Hehehehe… use wisdom. Use your intellect.

I then explained to her but then for the electrical apparatus to work and function properly, the wiring must be fixed correctly according to the manufacturer’s instruction connecting both the plug and its corresponding wall socket and have the right voltage of electrical power supply running and all those parts including the electrical equipment to which the plug is connected to in order for it to work as it was intended for.

All these symbolizes the proper registration of a legal marriage between a healthy man and an equally healthy female. Married in the presence of their family and friends with the consent of each other’s parents or legal guardians. Marriage solemnized and registered in the official government or local authority’s Register of Marriages. Being a legally married couple. A marriage recognized by the state and the ruling official government.

A marriage when consummated might result in the legally recognized conceiving of a child or children as in the case of having twins or more by the Grace and Mercy of Allah, our Supreme Master and Creator. The Giver of Life. A coming together of a legally married couple who by all means are free to enjoy limitless blissful rewarding sexual intercourse with their legally married spouse. A union that may result in the conceivement of their legal offsprings who when born successfully be able to say with pride and honor of being the son or daughter of Mr. and Mrs. So and So.

The continuation of their family’s lineage, legally and officially recognized and respected by members of their human society.

I then said to her “Imagine the scenario IF YOUR FATHER had been a homosexual! He would be sodomizing some other man by entering another man’s orifice through which the waste from one’s body exits. His bodily fluids which carry his seeds to carry on his family’s lineage would go wasted in another man’s system for excretion or another man might have been sodomizing your dad! Eww… (shudder..shudder)

You my dear, would not have come to exist and sit here in this historic beautiful Masjid asking me your questions or learning from me exactly why Islam forbids such Homosexuality!

Am I right?”

To which she silently nodded in agreement with tears starting to well up in her now getting emotional state as she pictured what I had so eloquently described to her regarding that imagined scenario.

I asked her if she wanted to learn more to which she replied in the affirmative saying ” Please continue.”

I then asked her to imagine if HER MOTHER had been a Lesbian? Her mom would have been rubbing herself raw with another woman and both women would only end up all sore but not get pregnant. She would not have been conceived by her mom and just like the case imagined earlier if her dad had been a homosexual or as they have been wrongly referred to or labelled as being a ‘Gay’, she would not have come to exist just the same and not learn all these Truth concerning Allah’s Forbidding Mankind of such major Sins of committing unnatural acts of sex with their same gender.

She thanked me so profusely and wanted to embrace and hug me for teaching her about the Facts of Life that Allah the All Knowing has revealed for us through His Revelations which are compiled into being the Glorious Al Quran Al Karim and now made available worldwide for free through websites such as www.quran.com with various translations and links to each and every guiding sacred verse for us to access for free anytime.

I politely declined and bowed to her as the Japanese do and shared with her that Islam also forbids us who are practicing and knowledgeable Muslims from touching or coming into contact with the opposite sex who are not allowed and accessible to us through marriage. It has to do with controlling ourselves from getting all aroused from such unrestricted intimacies.

Not like we are all fired up with raging hormones etcetera ready to go sowing our seeds with just any opposite sex out there at the slightest contact or what but just being rational and not wanting to cross the proverbial line of no return. Hehehehe. No sirree… Just being rational here.

She then proceeded to ask me as to why Muslim women have to cover themselves with the head scarf or wear those totally all covering ‘burqa’ such as what seems to be the mandatory wear for Arab women in the Middle East and that she had also seen a number of Malaysian women adorn the same here.

I told her about the Commandments from Allah in Surah An Nur (the Chapter of Light) Chapter 24 Verse 30:

“Tell the believing men to reduce [some] of their vision and guard their private parts. That is purer for them. Indeed, Allah is Acquainted with what they do.”

In the Commandment of Allah above, He commands the Prophet Muhammad to tell us, Muslim men, men who believe [have faith in Allah] to lower our eyes (from looking at the exposed areas of modesty of a woman or women) and for us to guard our private parts (genitalia) from coming into unlawful contact with those who are not our lawfully wedded wife or wives. This is Allah’s Commandments to us, Muslim men. Who have faith in Him.

Allah the Almighty God commands believing men to lower their gaze from looking at the women when she is exposed and for the righteous men to guard their areas of modesty (which is from their navel to the knee).

Do women ogle at men? They surely do. There was a social experiment done. Women are just like men. They are naturally attracted to the male species as men are attracted to the ladies. Hence our Creator, Allah the Almighty has revealed to us His Commandments which are meant to be our guidelines as to how we need to live our lives?

Watch the following video of the social experiment I shared about. Please be aware that the contents are for mature adults only but shown here as informative sharing meant to show that women do look at men when a certain part of the men’s body form are visible:

Allah is our Creator. He Knows our natural instincts. He instilled those instincts in us. Yet He also gave us our Faculties to Reason and know how to carry or conduct ourselves when being in the company of others. We can’t go around doing as we please because we do live in a human society where there are certain norms or guidelines as to how one should behave when being in public.

I asked her whether she understood the meanings of the Commandment of Allah to us Believing Muslim men as to how we should conduct ourselves when we are exposed to the sight of uncovered areas of a woman’s modesty? She replied that to her as an American woman who grew up in a very open and accepting country where almost anything goes, it all sounds a bit restrictive but she said that maybe because I am living here in South East Asia, maybe our society here is a tad too conservative but she understands. Different countries ; different cultures or social norms.

I then shared with her from my life experiences and what I came to learn about most men’s behavior when they come across women who are not forbidden for them to marry.

When a man regardless as to whether he is religious or otherwise, young or old, rich or poor, looks at a woman ; he will first look at her face. If she is pretty and attractive, chances are that he would not look elsewhere. This is just part and parcel of an average man’s nature. to look at pretty or beautiful faces of attractive members of the opposite sex.

If the particular lady was not that much of a beauty or pretty face, the man might then look at her bosom.

First the face. Face not beautiful. Eyes go looking at the bosom. This is a natural trait of any normal average man. Regardless of him being religious or secular. If the said lady has ample assets, the man would steal furtive glances at the bosom and not look elsewhere.

If and that’s a very probable if, the said lady is sadly ill equipped at the said area, the man might then look at her behind. Yes. The rear area. You saw the video up above showing the young lady walking along New York City streets wearing body hugging modern apparel and how she was immediately a centre of attraction for all those men who catcalled and propositioned her.

That’s the natural areas of attraction of a woman having a pretty face, ample bosom and a full figure. If she was skinny, not that pretty or pleasing to the eyes, no one would bother giving her a second look.

Hence the following Commandment of Allah to the Believing Muslim women: www.quran.com/24/31

” And tell the believing women to reduce [some] of their vision and guard their private parts and not expose their adornment (bosom) except that which [necessarily] appears thereof and to wrap [a portion of] their head covers over their chests and not expose their adornment except to their husbands, their fathers, their husbands’ fathers, their sons, their husbands’ sons, their brothers, their brothers’ sons, their sisters’ sons, their women, that which their right hands possess, or those male attendants having no physical desire, or children who are not yet aware of the private aspects of women. And let them not stamp their feet (drawing attention) to make known what they conceal of their adornment. And turn to Allah in repentance, all of you, O believers, that you might succeed.”

There are those who despite having read the meanings of the Commandment above to ‘Believing Muslim Women’ are still blind to Allah’s Crystal Clear Order to the Believing Muslim ladies to lower a portion of their Hijabs to cover their bosom or breasts so as not to draw the attention of ogling men who derive pleasure of enjoying a free show of the women’s assets.

The American lady was ecstatic in finally learning as to the reasons why men and women who believe in Allah take the extra steps to cover their areas of modesty and once again thanked me for sharing with her what I have come to learn in my years of studying the basis of my Islamic faith.

We parted company amicably and she promised to share her newfound knowledge with her family and friends.

Now that you too, my respected reader have come to learn about the subject matter, I humbly request that you share this article with your contacts as well.

May Allah guide us all.

Ameen.

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.

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

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

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

Hajjah Neelofa di Kelab Malam Zouk, KL .

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Saudi Arabia A-Okay’s Lady Drivers! Alhamdulillah!

Alhamdulillah! Common sense has finally prevailed in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia! Starting in June, 2018, women in Saudi Arabia will be finally allowed to drive! The restriction on women from being allowed to drive in Saudi Arabia has been there since the first motorcars were introduced in the oil rich kingdom.

There was a case of several Saudi women who defied such a ban and they drove their vehicles along the roads of Riyadh, the capital city of Saudi Arabia. Here is the video:

Personally, I do not agree with such a restriction because there is no such prohibition in Islam. If the Saudis did so because of their ancestral customs and taboos forbidding their womenfolk from travelling on their own, it is understandable because of the way their society operates.

Here in Malaysia, we have no such restrictions. It is actually a survival skill that ought to be learned by everyone, male and female as to learn and know how to drive a car for in times of emergency women can take over the wheels and drive to wherever it is that they need to go. Maybe it was the male ego at work over there in Arabia but Thank God, that the day has come for such an illogical rule to be overturned.

Still, I can foresee sort of a cultural clash taking place over there on the roads and highways of Saudi Arabia where age old male dominance would come to a head when the Arab menfolk feel threatened or challenged if a lady driver cuts them off on the road! Wonder what would ensue? Hehehehe..as the saying goes, we’ll just wait and see.
