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.

Have a Blessed Ramadhan 1439 Hijrah!

Assalamualaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh!

The MBA wishes each and every Muslim a very Blessed Ramadhan! May Allah bless us with the best of this life and may we earn the rewards of Fasting in this Sacred month of Ramadhan. Ameen Ya Rabbal Alamin.

‘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.

Maulidur Rasul. Birthday of Prophet Muhammad. To celebrate or not?

In Surah Al Ahzaab, Chapter 33 Verse 56 in the Al-Qur’an Al Kareem, Allah the Almighty reveals that He and His Malaikats [Angels] confers His and their Blessings upon the Blessed Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Alaihi Wassallam constantly.

We, who are Prophet Muhammad’s Ummah [ Followers] are today prone to bickering as to whether we should or not celebrate the anniversary of his birth here on Earth?

Verily, Mankind is always in a state of loss. We tend to waste our precious remaining time living here on Earth on useless quarrel and will only realize our follies when our last breath is up.

I say this to you. Whoever admits to being an Ummah of Muhammad Sallallahu Alaihi Wassallam, don’t waste your time pondering on useless questions. Just recite your Salawats upon Rasulullah Sallallahu Alaihi Wassallam  as often and as sincerely as you can, while you still can.

When you are about to die and the Malaikatul Maut is already close to you, then it’s gonna be too late for you to ponder whether you should or should not glorify Muhammad al Mustafa, Sayyidul Mursalin?

Don’t you remember that ‘Tirmidhi narrated from ‘Amir bin Rani’ah (May Allah be pleased with him) that our blessed Nabi Sallallahu Alaihi Wassallam (May Allah bless him and give him peace) said ‘He who invokes blessings upon me, the Angels send blessings upon him equal to that which he invoked, so let the worshipper invoke some, or increase upon that.’?

So why bother with the Doubters and Munafiquns who are only there to create problems for us in our remembrance of Prophet Muhammad al Mustafa whilst we still breathe?

Are we gonna be thrown into the Hellfire for glorifying Allah’s Messenger on his Maulid?

Surely, we won’t. So, go on and recite the Salawats upon Rasulullah as much as we can BUT do not go overboard or be excessive in such remembrances or celebrations. 

The Prophet didn’t ask us to create effigies or build decorative chariots bearing replicas of his masjid or other symbols. He didn’t ask us to organize parades or mass gatherings as what you see taking place in India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and many other countries where such things are done annually like nobody’s business.

The Prophet didn’t ask that we glorify him to such an extent that borders on deification or hero worship. Yes, he said that we are to love Allah and him to be above all other loves that we have BUT he also asked that we be moderate and rational in doing such acts of worship.

Use your common sense and do not exceed what is acceptable as our acts of ibaadah [worship]. Do not transgress.

It suffices to recite and understand the meanings of our Salawat upon our Prophet.

Allahumma Salli Wa Sallim Ala Sayyidina Muhammadim Wa Ala Ali Sayyidina Muhammad!

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.

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

Riya’ @ Ostentation

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

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

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

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

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

Isn’t it a waste?

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

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

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

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

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