Apabila umat Islam tinggalkan sains

Ibnu Sina @ "Avicenne' -Bapa Perubatan (Medicine)
Asal-usul ilmu sains boleh ditemui dalam tamadun Mesir purba. Walaupun kaedah dan pemikiran sains itu amat berbeza dengan sains seperti yang difahami hari ini.

Namun, terdapat banyak ciri-ciri yang menunjukkan bahawa sains purba bermula di Lembah Nil semasa zaman raja-raja Firaun. Setelah kejatuhan Mesir purba di tangan Iskandar Zulkarnain dari Macedonia, ilmu ini turut tersebar dalam tamadun Yunani yang memperkayakan sains dengan sumbangan fikiran dan kaedah-kaedah baru.

Tetapi kemudian ilmu sains mati dengan keruntuhan Yunani di atas kemunculan dan kegemilangan tamadun Rom, walaupun merupakan sebuah empayar besar tetapi tidak dikenali sebagai pemaju ilmu sains.

Ilmu sains Yunani bersama pemikiran dan falsafahnya tersimpan dalam manuskrip-manuskrip yang tersembunyi di merata-rata tempat tanpa dikaji dan digunakan. Ketika itulah, abad gelap bagi ilmu sains. Walaupun kemudian maharaja Rom memeluk agama Kristian dan empayar Bizantium menguasai dunia Mediterranean, tetapi ilmu sains masih tidak bangkit kembali.

Pada awal kemunculan Islam, ilmu sains masih belum bangkit semula. Ilmu sains dalam peradaban Islam bangkit dan mencapai kegemilangannya ketika era Khalifah Abasiah yang berpusat di Baghdad dan Khalifah Umayah di Andalusia. Ketika itu kerancakan minat terhadap ilmu mendorong ulama, yang bermaksud ilmuwan menggali pemikiran-pemikiran Yunani, termasuklah dalam bidang sains.

Khalifah Abasiah yang menguasai banyak wilayah yang dahulunya berada dalam empayar Yunani, Rom dan Bizantium telah menterjemahkan banyak manuskrip Yunani untuk dikaji, dibahas, diulas dan digunakan bagi memperkembangkan apa yang kini disebut sebagai sains Islam.

Zaman sains Islam berakhir apabila Khalifah Abasiah tumbang dengan serangan Mongol yang memusnahkan Baghdad dan segala perpustakaan serta buku-buku yang tidak ternilai harganya.

Sekali lagi ilmu sains mengalami zaman gelap dan segala kajiannya tersembunyi di tempat-tempat terpencil oleh penyimpan-penyimpan manuskrip di seluruh Asia Barat.

Perang Salib yang menemukan orang Eropah dengan manuskrip-manuskrip di Asia Barat merintis kepada zaman Renaisans atau Kebangkitan di Itali. Zaman ini ditandai dengan minat cendekiawannya terhadap pemikiran Yunani dan Islam. Contohnya, dalam perpustakaan peribadi Nostradamus, terdapat kitab tulisan Imam Ghazali.

Zaman Renaisans digantikan dengan Enlightenment atau Pencerahan yang mengukuhkan minat Barat terhadap ilmu. Akhirnya dengan penubuhan Royal Society serta pemikiran Francis Bacon mengorak langkah kepada penubuhan ilmu dikenali sebagai sains moden seperti yang ada hari ini.

Sejak itu, ilmu sains berkembang pesat digerakkan oleh orang Eropah dan keturunannya.

Walaupun kini ilmu sains sudah berkembang ke serata dunia dengan penyertaan bangsa-bangsa lain di dunia seperti China, Jepun dan India, tetapi penyertaan kalangan orang Islam masih terlalu amat kecil.

Sehingga kini hanya terdapat dua pemenang Hadiah Nobel dari kalangan orang Islam. Sementara tidak ada satu pun negara Islam yang terkenal dengan kecemerlangan kajian sainsnya.

Audrey Hepburn: Dari Hollywood Juga Ada Nilai Kemuliaan Insan.

Kita jangan terbelenggu di dalam ruang lingkup kita sendiri saja, ibarat 'katak di bawah tempurung', memilih 'menjumudkan' diri.. Akhir nya kita sendiri yang akan terlungkup, malah terlingkup dengan kecomotan wajah kita yang kita sendiri tidak sedar. Bila tidak sedar, maka kita perlu disedarkan agar tidak terus terlena, mamai, mamun dan akhir nya mengigau di malam buta (dan mungkin juga di siang hari)..


Audrey Hepburn, bintang filem Hollywood masyhur di tahun 60-7oan terkenal dengan kejelitaan nya. Namun tak ramai yang mengetahui mengenai kemuliaan akhlak nya. Hayati lah buat renungan bersama... betapa hati yang bersih, terpancar bersih nya ke wajah sebenar nya...















Masha Allah.... Tabarakallah.. For God is The Greatest.. and The Creation of Mankind by God is a Beauty Beyond Imagination...  Hayati lah... dan sedar lah hakikat insan, bahawa kemuliaan bukan datang dari orang Islam sahaja. Bahawa Allah swt itu Maha Mengasihani dan Maha Penyayang.. kita wajib menyampaikan keindahan Islam melalui keindahan pekerti kita.. kalau nilai insan yang ada dalam diri kita di pandang rendah... bagaimana kita hendak memgembangkan Islam. Amat lah ramai umat manusia yang berjiwa murni, tetapi belum menemui Islam. Mereka akan bertanya di Akhirat nanti, kenapa kita tidak menyampaikan (Tabligh) Islam kepada mereka. Apa jawab kita di hadapan Allah swt? Boleh lepaskan kita di Padang Mahsyar nanti?

Journey to the Hereafter

Awaken, oh sleepy ones, awaken from your heedlessness. The akhirah awaits us, death is coming, our graves are ready and our judgment is impending. Our destinations are unknown, so we must strive ever more so towards a good end and race towards the Pleasure of Allaah. And let us heed the words of ‘Ali radiAllaahu ‘anhu, in which he said: “The world has departed behind you and ahead of you is the Hereafter. Both of them have children, so be the children of the Hereafter and do not be the children of this world. Today is the day of action with no judgment and tomorrow is the Day of judgment with no action” [Hilyatul Awliyaa]



Anger Hurts, Love Heals.

Everyone says that love hurts but that is not true.Loneliness hurts,rejection hurts,losing someone hurts,envy hurts.Everyone gets these feelings confused with love,but in reality love is the only thing in this world that covers up all pain and make someone feel wonderful again.~Voice of love.


Feelings

You can close your eyes to the things you do not want to see,but you cannot close your heart to the things you do not want to feel.~Voice of heart.


No substitute for him.

"And verily for everything that a slave loses there is a substitute,but the one who Loses ALLAH will never find anything to replace him"~ Ibn Qayyim Al Jawziyyah


Check it, if only you have it.

Look for your heart in three places: when listening to the Qur’an, when seeking knowledge (of Allah) and when in privacy. If you cannot find it in these places, then ask Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala (exalted is He) to bless you with a heart, for indeed you have no heart. — [ Abdullah Ibn Masood r.a.]


What's Love ?

Love is the rank for which people compete; they long to learn about what it entails and they yearn to attain it; it is the provision for the hearts; the food of the souls; the joy of people's lives; the illumination of their minds; the foremost objective in life and the essence of existence. Love of Allaah is life itself, and to be deprived of it entails a terrible death; it is the light without which one would sail in a sea of darkness; it is the cure without which one's heart will be overwhelmed by a multitude of diseases; it is the joy without which one will remain in permanent grief; it is the essence of faith and deeds, without which they become like a soulless body.~Al Bousseeri.


Harden Heart

The slave is not afflicted with a punishment greater than the hardening of the heart and being distant from Allah. For the Fire was created to melt the hardened heart. The most distant heart from Allah is the heart which is hardened. If the heart becomes hardened, the eye becomes dry. If four matters are exceeded in quantity, beyond what is necessary, the heart shall become hardened: Food, sleep, speech and sexual intercourse. A body afflicted by disease does not derive nourishment from food or water, similarly a heart diseased by desire does not benefit from admonishment or exhortation.~Ibn Qayyim.


O My Lord...

Don't let me ever turn away from You, no matter how many trials and difficulties You test me with. Let these difficulties serve to make me a stronger Muslim and more sincere to You.


How is it possible?

A thirsty man's thirst cannot be quenched off, If he just keep on walking down the river whole day,unless he drink from it.Then how can a man benefit from this book (Qur'an) if he just keep on reciting and listening to it without putting it in to practice.~Hamid.


Remember....!

Truly Allah the exalted, has imposed certain obligations, 'Do not abolish them; He has forbidden certain things, Do not violate them; He has laid down certain limits, Do not trangress them; He was silent about certain matters, out of 'MERCY' for you, not-forgetfulness... Do not seek after them.'~Hadith


Its a challenge.

Qur'an answers what even Google cannot.So search in Qur'an what you don't find anywhere else ~Hamid


A Magnificent book with a mighty message.

Just like there is no corner in a circle,no hole in the sky,no color in the water; like wise there is no error in Al-Qur'an - A Magnificent book with a mighty message from Al-Mighty for all mankind.~Hamid


Music vs Qur'an.

Our Muslim Ummah is a fortunate Ummah(Nation).It was forbidden from what causes distress to soul(music) and was given in replacement what brings tranquility to heart (Qur'an)~Iqbal Zaheer Editor of Young Muslim Digest.


Shun your tension.

Some eyes are restless whilst others are in sleep In meditating that which may or may not occur , So leave the worrying as much as possible As carrying the burdens of anxiety is madness .There is your Lord, who provided you with the solutions to yesterday And He will similarly provide for what is to come today.Let events flow in their predestined path And do not sleep except with a clear mind .Between the period of a blinking of an eye and it’s opening Allah changes things from one state to another - Aidh al qarni


Lets be happy and content...

Whatever Allah has decreed for His believing slave is a blessing even if that is in the form of withholding; it is a favour even if that is in the form of a trial, and the calamity decreed by him is fair even if it is painful. Madarij al-Salikeen, 4/215.


Let's Live Like This.

When you were born, you were crying and everyone around you was smiling. Live your life so that when you die, you are the one who is smiling and everyone around you is crying.~Arab poet.


Health is wealth.

Health is a state of complete physical, phsycological,emotional,Spiritual,Financial and Social well-being, and not merely the absence of Diseases and symptoms.~Hamid


Life is really Fair ...

Life is always fair, and the reason for that is the hereafter. For anyone who believes in the hereafter will realize that every hardship will hit a dead end. And that dead end will have a door, beyond the door is the reward. When one accepts fate, situations, hardships, pain, they have already passed 50% of the trial by accepting it. Then it’s about getting through it. Knowing that Allah is the only one who can give it and also clear us of it will make us turn to Him and then we will find is so much easier. What makes it hard is the fact that we think “life isn’t fair”, “why me?” “why do i deserve this?” etc. We are tiny tiny creations and we can NEVER question our Lord. - Br. Yasin


Patient's Patience.

“…Indeed, the patient will be given their reward without account.” [az-Zumar 39:10]. Sulayman ibn Qasim said that the reward of every deed is known, except for the reward of patience, which will be like heavy rain. and remeber that Hope is the only bee that makes honey without flowers.


Learning from the Learned.

We learn… 10% of what we read. 20% of what we hear. 30% of what we see. 50% of what we see and hear. 70% of what we discuss with others. 80% of what we experience. 90% of what we teach to someone else.


Read, Re-Read & Reflect.

Do not be sad if you were born black and poor. It's not your mistake nor of your creator's, but it's just a matter of test for you and do not be proud of yourself if you were born white and rich.It's not your greatness nor of your father's, but it's just a matter of test for you too.Death will be the final measure of you both.Remember that neither every bounty is a blessing nor every pain is a punishment for Allah(swt) send some blessings as pain and some pain as blessings in disguised form.So Wipe your tears,think well of your Lord,and chase away your worries by remembering the blessings that Allah has bestowed upon you.Don't you think that this world is ever perfect for anyone . There is no one on the face of this earth who gets all what he wants or is free from all kinds of distress.~Inner voice.


Hadith from Heaven.

Jibreel came to me and said: “O Muhammad(saw)! Live as you will, for you must certainly die; love whom you will since you must certainly leave him; act as you will since you shall certainly be given due reward for it; know that the believer's eminence is his standing in prayer during the night, and his honour is having sufficiency without dependency upon the people.” al-Haakim (4/324)


A Psychological fact.

When a person cries and the first drop of tears comes from the right eye,it's happiness,but when the first roll is from the left,it's pain.


A cry of a hopeful soul...

O Allah!How can I ask you for any favours knowing how disobedient I am,But how can I not ask you for anything knowing how generous you are?


Eyes too worship by weeping.

Never be ashamed of your tears.Expressing your tears is vital to both mental and physical health.Tears at the right time and in the right place have such healing powers as to make them seem almost holy.Tears confirm you are still capable of deep emotions.They reveal that you are able to feel deeply.Tears simply mean you are still human.If something is worth your love,it is worth your tears too.~Voice of tears.


Don't be sad.

Don't be sad,because it causes the heart to contract,the face to frown,the spirit to weaken and hope to vanish.Life is too short to make it even shorter through disputes.So dont be sad.~Sheik Aid-Al-Qarni


High Fly.

No matter how high bird's fly...they always keep their eyes on earth but what makes a man walk upon it with pride and arrogance? Dosen't he know that he will be swallowed and crushed by it one day?~ Hamid.


A reality.

Arrow goes forward only after pulling in to backward.Bullet goes forward only after pressing the trigger backward.Every human being will get happiness only after facing the difficulties in their life path.So do not afraid to face your difficulties.They will push you forward forever.~Voice of wise


Pride falls,Love climbs.

It is better to loose your pride with someone you love rather than to lose that someone you love with your useless pride.


Marriage is...

Marriage is like the weather, forever changing. Sometimes it is cloudy and rainy, life appears gloomy, then the sun appears and rays of happiness break through bringing joy. At times, one experiences rain, wind and sunshine all in one day. Such is life, and like the seasons, we go through different experiences. The secret is to remain devoted and steadfast to one’s Deen and spouse.~Sheik Mohammad Saleem


Someone is happy just because of you.

When you think you are not happy with your life,always think that someone is happy,simply because you exist.Just think of happy things and your heart will fly on wings.Fill your head with happy thoughts and your heart with fragrance of faith.~voice of heart.


See the sign in your fingures.

The spaces in between your fingures were created so that another's could fill them in.One day your life will flash before your eyes.Make sure it's worth watching ~Voice of wise.


Power of Faith

Faith sees the invisible, believes the unbelievable, and receives the impossible.Emaan is like an airplane ride. The higher up you go, the smaller the things on Earth look~Imam safi khan.


Sign of Success

No matter where ever you go, even in the lonely path, Allah will always be with you.Among the signs of success at the end is the turning to Allah at the beginning~Syaikh Ibn ‘Ataillah.


Real eyes only, Realize the Reality.

"The woman becomes more attractive, when she becomes more modest and shy. Modesty is the thing that attracts me and many other men. The more a woman is modest , the more attractive she becomes….She is Gorgeous but untouchable,Precious but unplayable,Fragile but unbreakable,Simple but unforgettable and shy but undaunted.~Voice of faith.


Worry less,Limit stress.

One can be angry with anyone,that's easy; but to be angry with the right person,at the right time,to the right degree,for the right purpose and also in the right environment is not so easy and it's not within everybody's power.Expressing anger hurts others while supressing it, hurts you.So what's the solution? Transcending it, is the only solution.It's a feeling which makes your mouth work faster than your mind~Hamid.


The scholar's reply

A muslim scholar was eating in a restaurant and a christian westerner wanted to test him. He said, you muslims claim that your Qur’aan informs you of everything, tell me, what is the food you are eating made out of? The muslim scholar called the chef and asked him whereupon he said to the christian this is what the Qur’aan tells us, to ask those with knowledge when we lack it ourselves.


Chemistry of Life.

Invite ALLAH Into The Chemistry of Life. He Will Dilute Your Sorrows, Evaporate Your Worries, Filter Your Mistakes and Leave You With Crystals Of Happiness.


Make up! Your faith.

A woman, whose face was shining with joy and beauty, was asked: ‘What sort of make-up do you use?’ She said ‘I use for my lips truth, for my voice remembrance of Allah, for my eyes lowering my gaze, for my hands performance of good deeds, for my body sincerity and straightness, for my heart the love of Allah (SWT), for my mind wisdom, for my soul obedience of Allah, and for my desire the Iman. (faith)


Lift your life.

Lift your life by yourself, by being loyal to him who has given you the life and live it with some standards instead of a standard (luxurious) one, for one day you will leave (die) but your legacy remains ~Hamid.


A Mighty Test

Sufyan ibn ‘Uyaynah said: “Whoever seeks honor [by marrying a woman] will be tested with lowliness, and whoever seeks wealth [by marrying a woman] will be tested with poverty, but whoever looks for righteousness [in a woman], then Allah would combine both honor and wealth with righteousness for him in her.”


O son of Adam!

"O son of Adam, do not be happy with richness and do not despair of poverty. Do not feel sad during affliction and do not rejoice over prosperity, for just as gold is tried by fire, the pious are tried by affliction. You will not attain what you want except by giving up what you desire, and you will not attain what you aspire to except by enduring patiently what you hate, and exerting yourself in implementing that which has been made compulsory upon you (by Allah)."~Hazrat Ali (r)


Be a book bee.

"Seek knowledge because seeking it for the sake of Allah is a worship. And knowing it makes you more God fearing; and searching for it is jihad, teaching it to those who do not know is charity, reviewing and learning it more is like tasbeeh. Through knowledge Allah will be known and worshipped. With the knowledge Allah will elevate people and make them leaders and imams, who will in turn guide other people." Ibn Taymiyyah (rh)


Forgive them,You will be forgiven too.

To love and not to forgive is to hate.To refuse forgiveness out of strength is weakness.To forgive and yet still shun the one you forgave is not to have forgiven at all ~Voice of faith.


Permanent changes.

My personal experiences suggest that by constantly pressurising a child and by constantly telling him where he is wrong,you only dent his self-image.This approach does not make anybody better.It only make them worse.Encouraging the positive side of a person,appreciating even the slightest of improvements in him, a soft hand on his shoulders, a gentle pat on his back, and little words of motivation will be the sure fireways to support any child.With this approach,even if the changes are slow,they will be lasting,permanent changes.~Voice of love


Patience -An Invisble Garment~So wear it.

"Is it not strange that Allah gave you good health for years, and then when he afflicts you with some pain,you wear a banner on your head to advertise your pain?" Hasan al-basri says that after that day he never ever complained of any hardship he faced.


State of worry.

All humans are dead except those who have knowledge;and all those who have knowledge are asleep,except those who do good deeds;and those who do good deeds are deceived,except those who are sincere;and those who are sincere are always in a state of worry.~Imam shafi.


Voice of heart will be heared

If u make intesne supplication n the timing of the answer is delayed, do not despair of it, His reply to u is guaranteed but in the way he chooses,not the way you choose n the moment he desires,not the moment u desire.


Change their future.

Orphans cant change their past but u can change their future.Let us lit the lamp of love within us first and then lift the life of loveless.In lifting them we'll lift ourselves~Hamid


The best of all...

Beloved Prophet MUHAMMAD (pbuh) had no servants,yet they called him master,had no degree,yet they called him teacher,had no medicine,yet they called him healer.He (pbuh) had no army,yet kings feared him,he won no millitary battles,yet he conquered the world.He (pbuh) was burried in a tomb,yet he lives today..I feel honored to serve such a magnificent leader who loves us!


In Love with...

I love you and you love me because we love her (Islam).Im in love with he who created it (love) and its residence (heart) which feels tranquility and serenity in his magnetic and magnificent words(Qur'an)~Hamid.


Disguised reality.

Every pain will be a blessing in a disguised form if it is endured with patience and every blessing will be a pain if it is misused,remeber what a king at his death bed said:Aah! If only i had known that life could be so small,I wouldn't have done what I have done.~Hamid.


Ask it daily...

O Allah! I ask you a blessing that do not end,contentment that never ceases,knolwedge which is beneficial, sustenance which is good,deeds which are acceptable,acceptance of your decree, and a life of peace and happiness and not of anxiety and depression..


Maintain a + attitude

When you face a calamity or hear a heart breaking news or when you loose a beloved one or when a disease touch you.Raise your hands and head and say: Subhanallah! worst could have happened.Alhumdulilla! It didn't happen.What have i lost.Lost I have nothing.I own nothing of my own.what belongs to me that I will loose.~Hamid


Faithful Freind

Its much better to have one poor but pious friend that to have hundred rich wicked ones.~Hamid.


A note on reading

Reading opens the mind,guides one to correct morals and sharpen's one's ability to think.Reading is a comfort for the lonely,a stimulant for the thinker and a lamp for the traveller.He who cannot read good books has no advantage over him who cannot read.-Dr Aidh-al-Qarni


Irrefutable Truth

Know that Allah has made Islam the most sublime path for attainment of his supreme pleasure and the highest standards of his worship and obedience.He has favoured it with noble precepts,exalted principles,undoubtable arguments,unchallengable supremacy and undeniable wisdom.It is up to you to maintain the eminence and dignity granted to it by the lord,to follow it sincerly,to do justice to its articles of faith and belief,to obey implicity its tenets and orders and to give it the proper place in your lives.-Ali(r).There can be no Islam without unity.No unity without leadership and no leadership without obediance(Umar Ibn khattab).


Beauty and Poverty.

Wealth needs the poor to whom it can be given-just as a beautiful woman needs a clear mirror in which to see her beauty.A mirror reflects the beauty of a face,poverty brings forth generosity from where it is hidden-Sheik Sadi(r)


Truly richest they were ...

I met with people who deemed the world to be less important than the earth underneath thier feet.One of them would own only enough sustenance to maintain his body,yet he would still say ' I will give part of this in the way of Allah (swt)'...Hasan Basri (r)


Society will be at loss.

If money is given to those who do not spend,authority handed to those who cannot handle, and weapons given to those who do not use, then surely the affairs of the society will be at loss.~Hamid


What you wanna do?

Success in marriage doesn't come merely by choosing the right mate, but by being the right mate.And the one who loves his/her beloved should know that LOVE is an act of faith and not of lust,whoever is of little faith, will be of little love~Hamid


The biggest wonder of the world.

Be careful not to make a woman cry, because Allah (SWT) counts her tears. A woman came out not from man's feet to be walked on, not from his head to be superior over, but from his side to be equal, under the arm to be protected and next to the heart to be loved.


Human Nature

It is human nature to be forgetful, as the Arab poet said:“He is only called man (insaan) because of his forgetfulness (nasiyaan), and it is only called the heart (al-qalb) because it changes so rapidly (yataqallib).”In the past they said that the first one to forget (awwal naasin) was the first man (awwal al-naas), meaning Adam, peace be upon him.Forgetfulness is something that varies from person to person according to each individual’s nature; some may be more forgetful than others.


That's Lovetitude,which changes everything

A man broked his wifes' heart in to pieces but her reply to him was "I shall remember you not as the one who broked my heart but as the one who taught me how to live with a broken heart."~Hamid.


Coal to diamond

Never consider your opinion for a person based upon his present situation ,because time has the power to change an ordinary coal in to a precious diamond.


An Enlightment...

Do not earn wealth and loose people for earning people is a way to earn wealth.Whoever consider excercising good manners as a worship will deal courteously with everyone,be he rich or poor,a manager or a teaboy.


He Should Honor Her.

A woman can be patient with her husband's poverty,unattractiveness and busy schedule but she cannot be patient with his rude behaviour.No man honors a woman except a honourable one and no one demeans a woman except a mean person~Sheik Muhammad Al-Arifi.


License to Lie

When you ask people to lie FOR you,you have taught them to lie TO you.Through every disrespectful fight that hapens between a husband and a wife they have issued a license to thier children to disrespect them.


When Trust is absent,Suspicion rules.

A friend ask's his friend,What will you do if i deceive you?He replied:Trusting you will be my decision and proving me right will be your choice.


What have you lost in your life.?

Lost I have nothing as I own nothing of my own.What belongs to me that i may loose?~Hamid.


Do you feel alone?

A man (guest) was about to leave from the house of his host,as he was about to leave his host said him:"Dear brother upon you is to fear your mighty master,and whoever have piety in is heart will never feel alone"~Hamid.


Same Faith,Same Mission

Dr. Joseph Adam Pearson rightly says, "People who worry that nuclear weaponry will one day fall in the hands of the Arabs, fail to realize that the Islamic bomb has been dropped already, it fell the day Muhammed (pbuh) was born".


Sorrowness avail not...

Do not spoil what you have by desiring what you have not; but remember what you have now was once among the things you only hoped for.


Eyes Vs Heart

Eyes see only the external appearence while heart see the reality.The former can be decieved but the latter cannot~Hamid.


Live to Give

Those who give are given.Thos who forgive are forgiven.The creator serves those who serves his creation.Rise above me,mine and myself.In lifting others you will be lifted.


You can do that.

If you cannot encourage someone,do not even criticise.If you cannot benefit someone do not even harm him.Sow something better today to reap the best tomorrow~Hamid.


Be Thankful-Be Happy

"Stay happy with the little that you have from Allah, so that He may be happy with the little that you do"


Visa of life

Strange is the visa of life because it can be cancelled at any time.Its validity is unkown and its extension too is impossible-Maulana Yonus patel.


Ask the Best...

O Allah! I ask u a blessing that does not end, contentment that never ceases, knowledge which is beneficial,sustenanace which is good,deeds which are acceptable and acceptance of your decree.


Even more so

Shyness and modesty of men is an excellent virtue, but the shyness and modesty of women is even more so -Hazrat Abu bakr (r).


See with three eyes.

When ever you see Allah's creation/nature see it with three eyes,two of your head's & one of your knowledge.(ILM is third eye of human being)


A muslimah in hijab is...

Respected-not laughed at,Purified-not sullied,Protected-not exposed,Obedient-not a sinner,Noble-not degraded,Libeated-not subjugated,Independent-not a slave,Dignified-not dishonoured,Confident-not insecure,A guarded pearl-not a pro...


Isn't Amazing?

Animals have bigger tongue but cannot talk,wo/men have shorter ones but can't keep quiet.


Which one first?

Asking someone whether he is an indian first or muslim first is like asking someone whether he is the son/daughter of his father first or mother first.


Seek it till your end...

Whoever possesses knowledge but has no wealth,Is like one possessing feet without any sandals.And whoever possesses wealth but has no intellect,Is like one possessing sandals but has no feet! [Abdul-Rahman ibn Muhammad al-Muqatili]


Think Laterally

Lateral thinking is such a multi-taskey which can open the most difficult locks of life.~Hamid.


Need a pint of patience to love ...

Any body can love a rose,but it takes a great deal to love a thorn…A rose is not injured though it lives in midst of them, then how about we?Let’s not complain about others,Let’s change ourselfs if only we want peace .It is easier to protect our feet with slippers than to cover the earth with carpet.


Path of life

"The bitter path of life strengthens your wisdom, faith and knowledge while the easy path of life empties your mind and heart"…Zohra Moosa


Learn to Live

"Learn Patience from Asiyah, Loyalty from Khadijah,Purity form Maryam,Sincerity from Aaishah and Steadfastness from Fatimah"


You are not alone

The most determinative and motivating sentence which should always be followed in life is - The Race is NOT OVER because I haven't WON yet.


Watch it...

Watch your eye, should it ever reveal to you the faults of others, say to it: "O my eye, other people have eyes too."


He who has fallen and has got up again has not fallen at all...

Just kneel down on your knees or bow down on your elbows before Allah kareem when life gets too hard for you to stand.


Society will be at loss...

If authority is given to people who are not accepted and weapons are given in to the hands of those who do not use them and wealth is in the hands of those who do not spend it-then surely ,the affairs of society will be at loss.


Allah's delay is not Allah's denial...

Whoever makes pure his intentions and deeds,then life is made pure and good for him.whoever does the opposite then his life is made bitter and spoiled for him.whoever does good deeds in the night is provided for during the day and whoever does good during the day is provided for during the night.


How can we achieve it S CCESS without U?

Ya Allah! Grant us success in every walk of our life by strengthing our soul,empowering our whole (eman) and by blessing our efforts.


Fragrance Fly.

The fragrance of flowers spreads only in the direction of the wind. But the goodness of a person spreads in all directions!


O SouL!

You are not aware of the consequences that would result (if you were granted what you desire) because what you seek might be to your detriment. (O soul) be conscious that your Master is more aware about your well-being than you are. Ibn Al-Jawzee


Use your heartsight

Look at those who are lower than you in wealth and beauty so that u dont despise Allah's blessings ~Hadith.


Blame Game

This is a story about four people named Everbody, Somebody, Anybody and Nobody. There was an important job to be done and Everybody was sure that Somebody would do it. Anybody could have done it, but Nobody did it. Somebody got angry about that, because it was Everybody's job. Everybody thought Anybody could do it, but Nobody realized that Everybody wouldn't do it. It ended up that Everbody blaming Somebody when Nobody did what Anybody could have done.


Heal your Heart before it gets too late.

The heart becomes sick, as the body becomes sick, and its remedy is al-Tawbah.It becomes rusty as a mirror becomes rusty,and its clearity is obtained by az-Zikr.It becomes naked as the body becomes naked,and its beautification is al-Taqwa.It becomes hungry and thirsty as the body becomes hungry and thirsty,and its food and drink are knowledge,love,dependance,repentance and servitude.-Ibn al- qayyim


An Act of Faith

Isnt True Love an act of faith? Yes it is.Remember who ever is of little faith is of little Love.~Hamid


Predestined Provision.

A man will never die untill he is done with his provision i.e he will get his due proportion of provision that was predestined for him.~Hamid


Marry the wise,not vice.

The one who marry someone just because of money is a miser,the one who marry someone just because of status is proud.The one who marry someone just because of beauty is a fool.The only one who marry someone just because of piety is wise&nice.~Hamid


Paint your personality with pen of piety.

Fill the world with colour, paint it everywhere you go.Paint everything you see, and tell everyone you know.Qur’an will be your paint, and your brush will be iman.So fill the world with colour, every colour of Islam.(unknown)


Dare 2 4get it.

Remember your graves because your way passes over it.You will be dealt with as you deal with others,you will reap what you sow and what you send today will meet you tommorrow-Hazrat Ali(r).


Wheel your heart without hurting others.

Drive your heart on the wheels of faith.Neither go right nor left but go away straight till you reach the doors of paradise.~Hamid


Mess With Your Stress.

Press the stress with fist of faith and stick to sunnah to kick the stress~Hamid


The boat of life...

Falling in love with a fading shadow is sheer stupidity.Life moves on with or without spouse .The prime fact is that, alone you came in this world,so shall you'll go~Hamid.


No thorn,No rose~No sorrow,No joy.

Know that where there is a rose there will be a thorn,and with wine there is intoxication and over a treasure there is a coiled serpent and where there are royal pearls there are devouring monsters~Sheik Sadi.


Die rich if you were born poor.

Wealth needs the poor to whom it can be given just as a beautiful woman needs a clear mirror in which to see her beauty.A mirror reflects the beauty of a face,poverty brings forth generosity from where it is hidden ~Syed Iqbal Zaheer.


Gratitude is like vitamin for soul.

The one who is not thankful for a small blessing cannot be thankful even for a mountain of gold~Hamid.


Catch it if you can

The life is fleeting,the angle of death will soon be meeting,lets do good while our hearts are still beating,for we cannot delay the day of appointed meeting~Amina reden


State of Man

Qatadah said: Allaah created angels with reason and no desires, animals with desires and no reason, and man with both reason and desires. So if a man's reason is stronger than his desire he is like an angel, and if his desires are stronger than his reason then he is like an animal.


All in One-Flu Proof mask

Today hijab,Tommorrow Niqab,forever become free from azaab-of this duniya and of akhirah~Hamid


Heights of Honor

Giving right kind of knowledge at the right time, at the right degree,in the right way,for the right purpose and by the right person and also in the right environment can take a muslim child to the heights of success which cannot be measured off.~Hamid


Neither praise nor curse

Science and Technology should not be praised nor should it be cursed but simply it must be used because it cannot give us Peace except Ease.The former is necessary and the latter is optional.~Hamid


Dare 2 Deny me-Death

Luqman said to his son: Dear son!If you have any doubt's in death,then do not sleep for if you sleep,so too will you die and if you have any doubt's in day of resurrection then do not wake up from your sleep,for if you wake up from your sleep so too will you be resurrected after you die

Pendedahan Gangster Hindu di Malaysia

Ini adalah pendedahan dari seorang lelaki rakyat Malaysia berketurunan India yang tahu mengenai perkembangan serta penularan geg Hindu di Malaysia. Saya ambil dari blog nya, http://ragedindian.com/2008/04/04/indian-gangs-in-malaysia-deep-down/

Indian Gangs In Malaysia -Deep Down


Secret society in Malaysia. Anywhere we go, secret society exist. Who actually started all this and the history of it remains unknown. What does it all mean?Today, with a limited time we have, i will explain the history of Indian Gangs in Malaysia and how it all starts.

A few Indian guys will be gathering in a bus stop or a nearby drain everyday . Usually they might even skip school if they’re studying and will be ever present to join the loitering session. Together with them will be few packs of cigarettes. Now, day after day , their friends will grow to a bigger number. They buy a RM 5 color spray, and then will spray out something on the side of the drain or on top of the bus stop to mark their group.

You see, calling the group a name is one thing. The other word is also seemingly interesting.The name can differ ranging from things to numbers. Usually in Malaysia, it is interesting enough to see all the secret society members loves mathematics so much that they name their group after a number. The real meaning behind the numbers is too astronomical to explain. Forgive me. Few famous secret societies in Malaysia , Geng 24 , Geng 36 , Geng 21 , Geng 08. Now, if you’re soft , i suggest you try to get a membership in Geng 9.

They first make out a name , take Longkang for an example. So, Longkang is their name. But then, there are few identities that can follow.

a) Geng Longkang

b) Longkang Kaingeh

b) Longkang Set

d) Tiga Longkang

So, the name had been created. Next they need to establish a place. Let’s say there is a nearby field near the drain, it will be their field. So, everyone should start recognizing it as Longkang field. Every member have to work their ass out day and night to keep members from other secret society out from their field. If there is any intruders, immediately they will be identified and a fight will broke out. After a few fights, usually the gang’s will be able to establish them self.

After these few fights, the gang would be able to identify who are the person who will fight and the other’s who wont. The cowards will be rejected and only the toughest stays. Each of them will be recognized with a nick name. Usually they will name them self after things for their first name and others will opt for animal names.For an example:

1) ‘Vetu’ Kumar

2) ‘Rok’ Mani

3) ‘Mettu’ Murugan

3) Pandi (Pig)

4) Nandu (Crab)

5) Tiger

Next, after naming and establishing them self, next comes money collection.Every member have to pay a certain amount every month as a membership fee. A one time registration fee is subject to changes but monthly payments remains. If it’s Geng 24, then everyone has to pay RM 24 every month. So goes for the others gangs. The payment will be kept by the leader. It is known that this payment is kept to bail out any gang members that is caught or jailed up. The remaining goes to sponsor cheap liquors and cigarettes. Schools are targeted and collection goes around to protect students. Every student who pays the monthly fee will be accepted as a member and be protected. They will be called ‘budaks’. Nambe budak.

Next comes election. A very important part in forming a gang.One who fights the best and daring will be chosen as a leader.The following is the least minimum criteria to be a gang leader :

1) Should be daring and willing to fight anyone

2) Should handle weapons diligently

3) Should have been locked up in jail at least once

4) Have a few marks and sign of stitches in a visible place in their body(To mark that they have been in a few fights)

5) Should be a person without a brain. Should have no thinking capabilities.

6) Owns own transport and willing to travel to any school to fight.

7) Willing to fight extra hours just to protect the field.

Should be able to drink cheap liquors and smoke

9) Should be able to speak vulgar words fluently in Tamil, knowledge in vulgar words in other language such as Chinese and Malay will be an added advantage.

Above is the minimum criteria.Once the gang leader is chosen, what they need to do next is conquering. They will have to go and fight in a nearby fields and try to conquer other’s field. Once they’ve won the fight, the group who emerge victory will be able to rule another field . So, day by day their name will be high in the air and will rule few fields and drains in their housing area.

One new policemen will be transferred to the housing area and he will gun down all the gang leaders. The group dissolves and everyone runs away to another state hiding. Few committee members will be arrested and put in jail. The group will be gone all of a sudden. Until the person who is locked up is out from jail .Once he is out , there starts a new gang.

This is the cycle of secret society members. My dear friends, what you have read is what is happening. Do not try to explain to me about them because i live in a place where almost every existing secret society in Malaysia have their so called camp in my housing area.As interesting as this article might sound to be,it portrays the dark side of most Indian guys in Malaysia unfortunately.

Sekian, terima kasih.

.......................................................

Apa yang diluahkan nya lebih memaparkan bahawa masalah samseng Hindu di Malaysia tiada penghujung nya... Kesan nya sudah memudaratkan kesinambungan dan kelestarian bangsa lain. Bangsa Melayu sudah banyak menanggung bahana atas sifat terlalu bertoleransi..

Cara Membuat Internet Anda Bergerak Cepat.

Browsing Internet dengan kecepatan yang tinggi pasti sangat menyenangkan, berbagai cara dilakukan untuk mempercepat koneksi internet baik menggunakan software agar koneksi internet menjadi lebih cepat maupun menggunakan settingan tertentu yang diklaim bisa mempercepat koneksi internet.

Berikut ini adalah beberapa tips yang dapat digunakan untuk mempercepat koneksi internet :

A. Menggubah setting bandwith pada windows (Hanya kami uji pada Windows XP)

Pada dasarnya OS windows sudah membatasi bandwidth untuk koneksi internet sebanyak 20% dari total bandwidth yang seharusnya bisa maksimal, jika netter ingin menambah bandwidth internet supaya koneksinya terasa lebih cepat dan kencang bisa dengan cara mengurangi atau mengosongkan batasan bandwidth tersebut supaya pada Windows kita bisa maksimal dalam menggunakan bandwidth yang sudah ada.

Ikuti petunjuknya seperti dibawah ini :

1. Klik Start

2. Klik Run

3. Ketik gpedit.msc

4. Kemudian klik Ok

5. Setelah masuk klik (buka) Administrative Templates

6. Kemudian klik (buka) Network

7. Setelah terbuka klik QoS Packet scheduler

8. Kemudian klik Limit Reservable Bandwidth

9. Dan setelah terbuka ubah setting menjadi Enable

10. Kemudian ubah Bandwidth Limitnya menjadi 0

11. Klik Apply, dan terus Ok

12. Kemudian keluar dan Restart komputer

B. Pakai browser Google Chrome atau Apple Safari

Versi terbaru dari browser Chrome dan Safari sangatlah cepat bila dibandingkan dengan Firefox ataupun Internet Explorer (sudah dicoba dan terbukti memang jauh lebih cepat). Saran saya pakailah Google Chrome karena selain cepat, Chrome lebih aman dibanding dengan Safari, walau dalam beberapa hal Safari kadang lebih cepat dari Chrome.

Kalau netter sudah terbiasa memakai Firefox dan tidak ingin beralih ke browser lagi, bisa tambahkan Add-on “Adblock” untuk memblok iklan, gambar, dan flash yang aktif. Ada beberapa Add-on lagi dari Firefox seperti NoScript yang bisa mempercepat akses internet, tapi sayangnya kalau kebanyakan Add-on justru, kadang malah memperlambat akses dari browser Firefox sendiri.

C. Perbesar cache browser hingga 5% dari kapasitas Harddisk atau 1 – 2 GB

Cara ini terbukti efektif untuk mempercepat akses browser. Logikanya adalah browser tidak perlu tiap kali loading gambar dan tetek bengeknya segala setiap kali berkunjung ke situs yang sudah pernah dikunjungi, karena kalau situs sudah pernah dikunjungi akan otomatis di-cache oleh browser.

Cara ini hanya berlaku jika kapasitas harddisk netter cukup besar. Pada umumnya masing-masing browser ada yang bisa diset kapasitas cachenya, ada yang otomatis. Jika browser netter tidak ada pilihan set cache, artinya netter jangan sering-sering (atau tidak perlu) clear history di browser.

Apa itu (What is) "Taqaballahu minna wa minkum" dan ucapan Hari Raya?

Saya sudah lama mendengar ucapan ini dan sebelum dari ini sebenar nya kurang arif akan makna dan cara penggunaan nya. Akhir nya, saya membuat sedikit kajian tentang perkara ini untuk dikongsi bersama.

Ada khilaf yang mempunyai perbezaan pendapat tentang mula penggunaan ucapan ini. Satu pendapat mengatakan ianya bermula dari Rasulullah s.a.w. sendiri dan satu pendapat mengatakan ianya bermula di zaman sahabat.

Namun begitu, ianya sudah menjadi amalan yang tidak pula membawa kesan buruk. Ianya adalah ucapan agar ibadah dan kebaikan yang kita buat di bulan Ramadhan dan Syawal diterima oleh Allah swt. Dan ucapan ini wajar dijawab apabila orang menyebutnya kepada kita.

Sebagai penjelasan yang mengatakan ianya bermula dari Rasulullah s.a.w. sendiri;

Rasulullah biasa mengucapkan taqabbalallahu minna wa minkum kepada para sahabat, yang artinya semoga Allah menerima aku dan kalian. Maksudnya menerima di sini adalah menerima segala amal dan ibadah kita di bulan Ramadhan.

Beberapa shahabat menambahkan ucapan shiyamana wa shiyamakum, yang artinya 'puasaku dan puasa kalian'. Jadi ucapan ini bukan dari Rasulullah, melainkan dari para sahabat.

Kemudian, untuk ucapan minal ‘aidin wal faizin itu sendiri tidak pernah dicontohkan, sepertinya itu budaya orang Malaysia & Indonesia. Yang sering salah digunakan adalah ucapan tersebut biasanya diikuti dengan “mohon maaf zahir dan batin”.

Jadi seolah-olah minal ‘aidin wal faizin itu ertinya 'mohon maaf zahir dan batin'. Padahal erti sebenar nya sama sekali berlainan. Minal ‘aidin artinya 'dari golongan yang kembali'. Dan wal faizin ertinya dari 'golongan yang menang'. Jadi makna ucapan itu adalah semoga kita termasuk golongan yang kembali (maksudnya kembali pada fitrah) dan semoga kita termasuk golongan yang meraih kemenangan.

Manakah diantara kalimat-kalimat di bawah ini yang benar?

A.Minal ‘aidin wal faizin, mohon maaf lahir-bathin
B.Mohon maaf zahir-bathin, minal ‘aidin wal faizin
C.Semoga kita dimaafkan minal ‘aidin wal faizin
D.Semoga kita minal ‘aidin wal faizin
E.Semua benar

Kalau kita tadi menyoal tentang asal kata Ied (masdar atau kata dasar dari ‘aada=kembali) , sekarang kita cuba bongkar asal kata ‘Aidin dan Faizin. Dari mana asal makna nya? ‘Aidin itu isim fa’il (pelaku) dari ‘aada. Kalau anda memukul (kata kerja), pasti ada proses “pemukulan” (masdar), juga ada “yang memukul” (anda pelakunya). Kalau kamu “pulang” (kata kerja), bererti kamu “yang pulang” (pelaku). Pelaku dari kata kerja inilah yang dalam bahasa Arab disebut dengan isim fa’il.

Kalau penggunaan 'Aidin, dari mana pula asal? ‘Aidin atau ‘Aidun itu bentuk jamak (plural) dari ‘aid, yang artinya “yang kembali” (isim fa’il. Baca lagi teori di atas). Mungkin maksudnya adalah “kembali kepada fitrah” (“kembali berbuka”, pen) setelah berjuang dan mujahadah selama sebulan penuh menjalankan puasa.

‘aada = ia telah kembali (fi’il madhi).
Ya’uudu = ia tengah kembali (fi’il mudhori)
‘audat = kembali (kata dasar)
‘ud = kembali kau! (fi’il amr/kata perintah)
‘aid = ia yang kembali (isim fa’il).

Kalau Faizin? Faizin juga sama. Dia isim fa’il dari faaza (past tense) yang ertinya “sang pemenang”. Urutannya seperti ini:
Faaza = ia [telah] menang (past tense)
Yafuuzu = ia [sedang] menang (present tense)
Fauzan = menang (kata dasar).
Fuz = menanglah (fi’il amr/kata perintah)
Fa’iz = yang menang.

‘Aid (yang kembali) dan Fa’iz (yang menang) bisa dijamakkan menjadi ‘Aidun dan Fa’izun. Karena didah ului “Min” huruf jar, maka Aidun dan Faizun menyelaraskan diri menjadi “Aidin” dan “Faizin”. Sehingga lengkapnya “Min Al ‘Aidin wa Al Faizin”. Biar lebih mudah membacanya, kita biasa menulis
dengan “Minal Aidin wal Faizin”.

Oleh itu, mengapa pula kita harus mulakan dengan penggunaan “min”?

“Min” ertinya “dari”. Sebagaimana kita ketahui, kata “min” (dari) biasa
digunakan untuk menunjukkan kata keterangan waktu dan tempat. Misalnya
‘dari’ zuhur hingga ashar. Atau ‘dari’ Cengkareng sampe Cimone.

Selain bererti “dari”, Min juga mengandung erti lain. Syekh Ibnu Malik dari
Sepanyol @ Andalus, dalam syairnya menjelaskan:

Ba’id wa bayyin wabtadi fil amkinah
Bi MIN wa qad ta’ti li bad’il azminah
Maknanya dengan “sebahagian”, ini kata penjelas dan permulaan tempat-
-Dengan MIN. Ianya kadang - kadang digunakan untuk menunjukkan permulaan waktu.

Dari keterangan Ibnu Malik ini, kita boleh mendapat gambaran bahawa MIN
pada MIN-al aidin wal faizin tadi menunjukkan kata “sebahagian”
(lit-tab’idh ) . Jadi secara harfiyah, minal ‘aidin wal-faizin artinya:
BAHAGIAN DARI ORANG-ORANG YANG KEMBALI DAN ORANG-ORANG YANG MENANG.

Kesimpulannya?
Yang jelas Minal Aidin tidak ada hubungannya dengan Mohon maaf Zahir dan Batin. Menggunakan kalimat a, boleh. Memakai kalimat b, silakan jika mahu. Tapi sekali lagi, mohon maaf zahir & batin itu bukan erti minal aidin. Namun begitu, jangan memilih c, karena minal aidin tidak pernah bermaksud memaafkan orang. Bagi saya pula. pilihan saya adalah d, ini yang paling shahih. Akhirnya, semoga kita minal ‘aidin wal faizin. Amin!

[Cairo,7 september 2009]

Sampai di sini, ternyata ucapan tsb (Minal Aidin Wal Faidzin) tidak pernah
ada dasar dan tuntunannya.
Silakan semak penjelasan berikut ini;

Al-Hafizh Ibnu Hajar dalam Fathul Bari 2/446 mengatakan: “Kami meriwayatkan dari guru-guru kami dalam “Al-Mahamiliyy at” dengan sanad hasan dari Jubair bin Nufair, beliau berkata :
“Para sahabat Rasulullah apabila mereka saling jumpa pada hari raya, sebagian mereka mengucapkan pada lainnya: “Semoga Allah menerima amalanku dan amalanmu”.

Ibnu Qudamah juga menyebutkan dalam Al-Mughni 2/259 bahwasanya Muhammad bin Ziyad mengatakan :
“Saya pernah bersama Abu Umamah Al-Bahili dan para sahabat Nabi lainnya,
maka apabila mereka kembali dari ied, sebagian mereka berucap pada lainnya : “Semoga Allah menerima amalanku dan amalanmu” (Imam) Ahmad berkata : “Sanad hadits Abu Umamah jayyid (bagus)”. Imam Suyuthi juga berkata dalam Al-Hawi (1/81): “Sanadnya hasan”.

Adapun ucapan: “Minal Aidin Wal Faidzin, mohon maaf lahir dan batin”, “halal bi halal” atau “kosong-kosong” serta ungkapan-ungkapan lainnya, maka sebaiknya dihilangkan dan kita ganti serta membiasakan diri dengan lafadz syar’i yaitu (Taqobballahu Minna Wa Minka) sehingga kita tidak terj atuh dalam ayat :
“Apa kamu mau mengambil yang rendah sebagai pengganti yang lebih baik ?”
(QS Al Baqoroh: 61)

Sumber:
[Dikutip dari majalah Al Furqon Edisi 2 Th. II hal 37 "Hari Raya Bersama Nabi
Shollallahu 'Alaihi Wasallam"]

Ini pula penjelasan yang mengatakan ucapan 'Taqaballahu.." ini bermula di zaman sahabat;
Ibn Taymiyyah (ra) said: “As for people greeting each other after the eid prayer by, ‘Taqaballahu minna wa minkum' (may Allah accept it from you and us) - it is reported that some of the shahabah practiced it, and the scholars permitted it. However, Ahmad said, ‘I do not initiate saying it to anyone; but if one says it to me, I answer him. This is because responding to a greeting is obligatory, but to initiate the greeting is not a required sunnah, neither is it prohibited: whoever does it it would have an example (from the salaf) and whoever does not would have a predecessor as well.” (Majmoo al-Fataawaa 24/253)

Al-Haafidh Ibn Hajr Al-Asqalani (ra) said: “We have related in “Mahaamiliyaat” with a chain of narration that is hasan, from Jabyr ibn Nufayr who said: ‘When the companions of RasulAllah (saw) met on the day of ‘eid, they would say to each other, ‘Taqaballahu minna wa minkum (may Allah accept from you and us ).” [Al Mahamiliyyat; hasan isnad; see Fath ul Bari 2:446]

Ibn Qudamah mentioned that Muhammad ibn Ziyad said: I was with Abu Umamah al Bahili (ra) and some other companions of the Prophet (saw). When they returned from the eid, they said to each other, ‘Taqabbalallahu minna wa minkum (May Allah accept it from you and us).” (al-Mughni 2/259)

Kesimpulan.

Ucapan Taqaballahu Minna Waminkum adalah ucapan yang sebaik nya untuk Hari Raya berbanding Ucapan maaf zahir dan batin.

Cara menjawab ucapan ini;
Ada orang yg menjawab "Taqabbalahu minna waminkum" dengan ucapan balas “Taqabbal ya karim”. Ada juga orang menjawab dengan ucapan "Minna wa minkum taqabbalallah".

The Little Preacher.

Every Friday afternoon, after the Jummah prayers, the Imam and his eleven year old son would go out into their town and hand out "PATH TO PARADISE" and other Islamic literature. This particular and fortunate Friday afternoon, as the time came for the Imam and his son to go to the streets with their booklets, it was very cold outside, as well as pouring rain.

The boy bundled up in his warmest and driest clothes and said, 'OK, dad, I'm ready!' His dad asked, 'Ready for what', 'Dad, it's time we go out and distribute these Islamic books.' Dad responds, 'Son, it's very cold outside and it's pouring rain.' The boy gives his dad a surprised look, asking, 'But Dad, aren't people still going to hell, even though it's raining?' Dad answers, 'Son, I am not going out in this weather.'
Despondently, the boy asks, 'Dad, can I go Please' His father hesitated for a moment then said, 'Son, you can go. Here are the booklets. Be careful son.' 'Thanks, Dad!' And with that, he was off and out into the rain. This eleven year old boy walked the streets of the town going door to door and handing everybody he met in the street a pamphlet or a booklet. After two hours of walking in the rain, he was soaking, bone-chilled wet and down to his VERY LAST BOOKLET. He stopped on a corner and looked for someone to hand a booklet to, but the streets were totally deserted.

Then he turned toward the first home he saw and started up the sidewalk to the front door and rang the door bell. He rang the bell, but nobody answered.. He rang it again and again, but still no one answered. He waited but still no answer. Finally, he turned to leave, but something stopped him. Again, he turned to the door and rang the bell and knocked loudly on the door with his fist. He waited, something holding him there on the front porch! He rang again and this time the door slowly opened. Standing in the doorway was a very sad-looking elderly lady. She softly asked, 'What can I do for you, son?' With radiant eyes and a smile that lit up her world, this little boy said, 'Ma'am, I'm sorry if I disturbed you, but I just want to tell you that ALLAH REALLY LOVES AND CARES FOR YOU and I came to give you my very last booklet which will tell you all about God, the real purpose of creation, and how to achieve His pleasure.' With that, he handed her his last booklet and turned to leave. She called to him as he departed. 'Thank you, son! And God Bless You!'

Next week on Friday afternoon after Jummah prayers, the Imam was giving some lectures. As he concludes the lectures, he asked, 'Does anybody have questions or want to say anything?' Slowly, in the back row among the ladies, an elderly lady's voice was heard over the speaker. 'No one in this gathering knows me. I've never been here before. You see, before last Friday I was not a Muslim, and thought I could be. My husband died few years ago, leaving me totally alone in this world.. Last Friday, being a particularly cold and rainy day, i was contemplating suicide as i had no hope left.

So I took a rope and a chair and ascended the stairway into the attic of my home.. I fastened the rope securely to a rafter in the roof then stood on the chair and fastened the other end of the rope around my neck. Standing on that chair, so lonely and broken-hearted I was about to leap off, when suddenly the loud ringing of my doorbell downstairs startled me. I thought, I'll wait a minute, and whoever it is will go away.
I waited and waited, but the ringing doorbell seemed to get louder and more insistent, and then the person ringing also started knocking loudly.... I thought to myself again, 'Who on earth could this be? Nobody ever rings my bell or comes to see me.' I loosened the rope from my neck and started for the front door, all the while the bell rang louder and louder.

When I opened the door and looked I could hardly believe my eyes, for there on my front porch was the most radiant and angelic little boy I had ever seen in my life. His SMILE, oh, I could never describe it to you! The words that came from his mouth caused my heart that had long been dead TO LEAP TO LIFE as he exclaimed with a cherub-like voice, 'Ma'am, I just came to tell you that ALLAH REALLY LOVES AND CARES FOR YOU!'

Then he gave me this booklet, Path To Paradise that I now hold in my hand. As the little angel disappeared back out into the cold and rain, I closed my door and read slowly every word of this book. Then I went up to my attic to get my rope and chair. I wouldn't be needing them any more.

You see? I am now a Happy Vicegerent of the One True God. Since the address of your congregation was stamped on the back of this booklet, I have come here to personally say THANK YOU to God's little angel who came just in the nick of time and by so doing, spared my soul from an eternity in hell.'

There was not a dry eye in the mosque. The shouts of TAKBIR...ALLAHU AKBAR.. rented the air.

Imam-Dad descended from the pulpit to the front row where the little angel was seated.... He took his son in his arms and sobbed uncontrollably.

Probably no jama'at has had a more glorious moment, and probably this universe has never seen a father that was more filled with love and honor for his son... Except for One. This very one...

Blessed are your eyes for reading this message. Don't let this message die, read it again and pass it to others. Heaven is for His people! Remember, God's message CAN make the difference in the life of someone close to you. Please share this wonderful message Spread His Word, help Him and you'll see His hand in everything you do...

This day I've perfected your religion for you, and completed my favor on you, and chose Islam for you as religion....

(Qur'an 5: 3)

Fenomena Samseng Hindu Malaysia

Masalah gangster Hindu di Malaysia adalah satu perkara yang tak boleh dipandang remeh lagi. Ianya bukan saja melibatkan Hindu yang tidak berpendidikan.. Peguam yang berpendidikan tinggi juga sudah banyak melakukan jenayah berat. Terbaru adalah pembunuhan Dato’ Sosilawati dan 3 Melayu lain baru-baru ini..


Fenomena gangster Hindu di Malaysia telah lama diperkatakan di dalam akhbar Hindu Online iaitu THE HINDU yang merupakan akhbar nasional di India, seperti artkel di bawah yang bertarikh 15 Disember, 2000.


http://www.hinduonnet.com/2000/12/15/stories/03150007.htm


---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Malaysian Indian gangs on prowl

KUALA LUMPUR, DEC. 14. Malaysian Indians make up just about 7% (seven per cent!) of the Malaysian population, but contribute to 55 per cent of the country's crime. It is common place for Malaysian Indians, who first came to the region as plantation labour, to be involved in murders and robberies. Nearly 80 per cent of all Malaysian Indians are Tamil speakers.

The problem has become so severe that the Malaysian Indian Congress (MIC) leader and Works Minister, Mr. S. Samy Vellu, says that many of his constituents have come to be known as the ``bad boys''. According to the website, Indian-Malaysian Online, 38 Indian gangs with a membership of 1,500 persons are involved in extortion, drug pushing and robbery. ``It is very serious. The problem has to be addressed,'' Mr. Vellu, who has been a Minister in the Malaysian Cabinet since 1979, said. Mr. Velu's MIC, launched a new initiative to bring the ``bad boys'' back into society. ``We are trying to do a reach-out programme for 300,000 youth who are mostly secondary and high school educated.

The Malaysian Government had allocated a sum of $ 20 million for an MIC affiliate to carry out this programme over the next five years.''
Dr. M. Nadarajah, who teaches sociology at Stamford College, said, ``The Indians here are a poor minority community and poverty has become an inter-generational problem, poverty reproducing poverty...as a result of development in Malaysia, they have been pushed from rural to urban poverty, from plantation worker to factory hand, from living in an estate environment to living in a squatter area.'

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Ini satu permasalahan yang kronik kerana orang Melayu sendiri secara umum nya berdiam diri dan hanya memandang remeh akan masalah ini. Tidak kurang yang berpendapat bahawa masalah ini adalah isu terpencil dan bukan lah isu melibatkan perkauman sama sekali, isu keagamaan mahu pun isu politik. Padahal secara hakikat nya, ianya secara langsung memberi kesan mendalam di dalam elemen kehidupan manusia yang melibatkan kaum, agama dan politik di dalam sesebuah Negara. Adakah kita terlalu berdiplomasi dan sudah terantuk masih tidak terngadah?? Adakah perebutan undi popular parti politik di dalm system demokrasi sedia ada menyebabkan isu sebegini boleh dikompromi? Bagaimana jika isu sebegini berlaku di Negara lain..? Contoh nya, di Negara India, Arab dll?


Hindraf di Malaysia pernah berarak membawa gambar Mahatma Gandhi di Negara Malaysia. Gandhi itu adalah pemimpin di Negara India. Sebagai rakyat Malaysia berketurunan Tamil (dan beragama Hindu), Gandi masih idola mereka. Gandhi hanya boleh memerdekan India dari penjajahan British. Apa kena mengena dengan Malaysia? Adakah mereka masih berpaksikan politik India. Adakah Malaysia bukan Negara untuk ditumpahkan taat setia seseorang rakyat Malaysia? Semangat 1Malaysia untuk hidup bersama dengan aman perlu difahami dengan betul… Orang Melayu semakin bertambah curiga dengan elemen gangster Hindu. Tragedi Kampung Rawa, Pulau Pinang (1997) dan Kampung Medan, Selangor (4-8 Mac 2001)antara Melayu Islam dan Tamil Hindu masih segar di dalam ingatan setiap mereka yang prihatin.


Ahli Bar Council yang diketuai dan dianggotai oleh ramai peguam-peguam Berketurunan India beragama Hindu perlu mempertimbangkan akan kewajaran samada mereka mahu mengambil kes mempertahankan para pembunuh Dato’ Sosilawati & rakan-rakan apabila kes itu dibawa ke mahkamah nanti. Sama-sama lah kita nantikan aksi mereka yang selama ini beria-ia melaungkan slogan keadilan di Malaysia. Profesional Hindu di luar Malaysia juga banyak menulis mengenai ketidak puasan hati mereka kepada Muslim di Malaysia seperti artikel di bawah. Bolehkah orang Islam bersuara dengan nada yang serupa di India dan juga Kashmir?

Malaysia Hindus suffer Muslim persecution

Commentary: Of Karma and Dharma

Last week I pondered the question of who could enter Hindu temples. But I had not thought of a situation where that question would be moot because there would be no Hindu temples to enter.

No, I am not thinking of the, "This is the beginning of World War III" pronouncements by well-known and sundry Republican politicians and commentators in the past few days, and therefore the end of the world, and therefore the destruction of all Hindu temples. Well, hell (if I may exclaim), if we had World War III there would be no portals to enter - period - let alone Hindu temples.

What I am writing about is the destruction of Hindu temples in a "progressive" Muslim country, Malaysia. In the name of development and progress, local municipal councils are razing Hindu temples at the rate of one a week. It is difficult to evaluate the nature of these development projects and why or how the Hindu temples have been targeted. One of the news items reports that "unregistered" Hindu temples have been ordered razed.

But Hindu activists say that the Malaysian Governments, after Malaysia gained independence in 1957, have refused to recognize and register Hindu temples. They point out that the lands on which mosques are situated have been recognized as "reserved" land in government gazettes but the governments have deliberately ignored the Malaysian Constitution which guarantees equality before the law (Article 8) by refusing to "reserve" land on which Hindu temples have stood.
The many Hindu temples are meant to serve the legitimate spiritual interests and needs of the nearly 1.7 million Hindus in a multi-cultural Malaysia.

One of the ethnic Indian ministers in the Malaysian government, Samy Vellu, echoed the concerns of Malaysian Hindus and asked local authorities to set aside permanent sites for the temples, in case any temple had to be demolished because of public works projects.

This statement by the minister must have been welcome news for the Hindus. But what happened a week ago, on July 14, was a slap in the face of the minister and the minority Hindu community. The Government of Malaysia forced a Hindu Temple in Petaling Jaya to relocate next to a large sewage tank. "Hey, if you are going to pray to your many Gods, pray that the world will smell good," seems to be the message of the Muslim Monarch of Malaysia. The country is a constitutional monarchy, and the legal system is based on English Common Law, but we should note that the king is also the leader of the Islamic faith in Malaysia.

The plight of the Hindus will mostly go unnoticed by the international community because it is believed by the world that Hindus tend to accept their fate, and that they are resilient in the face of adversity. This message actually was touted last week when Islam-inspired terrorists struck in Mumbai by bombing several commuter trains. Two hundred people died, and more than 700 injured.

But there was little anger and disgust expressed in the world's newspapers, and The New York Times not only did not publish an editorial on the ghastly terrorist attacks, but chose to publish only three letters to the editor, out of which two letters were by Muslim readers who complained that the attacks on Mumbai would merely make the life of Muslims difficult and that unless the Kashmir issue was resolved such terrorist attacks could not be contained. My angry letter denouncing this vulgar choice went unanswered and unpublished.

But back to Malaysia: the local authorities used some ethnic Indian musclemen to attack the temple devotees at the Petaling Jaya temple who were gathered there to stop the destruction of the temple. This reminds one of the British using Indian policemen to beat up the non-violent protesters led by Gandhi. It is also a sad commentary on human frailty and how ethnic and religious identity can be undermined by a few gold coins. The gangsters, it is reported, were accompanied by nearly one hundred policemen, Petaling Jaya City Council enforcement officers, fire brigade personnel and a Malay Muslim mob.

The police stood by and watched silently as the gangsters beat up the Hindus who were maintaining a vigil in front of the temple, and then forcibly pushed the Hindu devotees out of the way so that the hired gangsters could traumatize the devotees. The temple was completely demolished by the next day. And despite the complaints by the Hindu devotees the Attorney General of Malaysia has failed to initiate criminal proceedings against the attackers or to ask for an enquiry into the police and local officials who have instigated or colluded in the attack.

Hindu leaders and activists met the Law Minister Dato' Seri Nazri Aziz in May to complain about the temple destructions. Expressing regret at the events, the minister is said to have promised a quick Cabinet meeting and a solution to the problem. Two months later, and many more temples razed, the minister has done the vanishing trick, and left his petitioners frustrated and seething in discontent. It is reported that at least 26 temples have been destroyed since February this year.

The letters that The New York Times published after the Mumbai terrorist attacks last week may reflect the frustration of good Muslims who feel that they and their religion have become objects of suspicion and even hate in many nations. But it is rare to hear the good and moderate Muslims lash out against the vindictiveness and violence of their fellow fanatical Muslims or the chicanery of Muslim governments and Islamic states that deny fundamental human rights to non-Muslims.

The Malaysian experience of Hindus should be yet another wake up call to world leaders and good Muslims to end the tyranny of Muslim fundamentalism and Muslim majoritarianism.

Isu kuil Hindu yang tidak dilesenkan cuba dimainkan di dalam artikel di atas. Padahal jika dilihat sebagai contoh, kuil-kuil Hindu sememangnya banyak didirikan sesuka hati di Pulau Pinang dll.. Asal ada tanah rezab sungai dan masyarakat Hindu maka akan mula lah patung-patung berhala diletakkan seperti di tepi Sungai Pinang dan Kampung Rawa yang akhir nya dibesarkan sehingga menjadi tokong. Bukan itu saja, pokok pokok besar turut menjadi lokasi kegemaran. Ladang getah mana yang mempunyai pekerja Hindu yang tidak terdapat tokong Hindu? Malah Taman Belia Perbandaran Pulau Pinang juga ada Tokong Hindu.


Betapa mewah nya kebebesan itu. Adakah Malaysia sebuah Negara yang tidak boleh berlaku adil dengan bertindak adil?Tun Razak apabila menangani isu 13 Mei telah berkata, “The time has come for less talk and more action..”. Ketegasan perlu diutamakan di dalam isu sekarang ini. Tidak ada kompromi pada perkara pokok yang boleh menjejaskan kelestarian bangsa berdaulat di Bumi Bertuah Malaysia. Jangan sampai api yang membara ditiup angin dan menjadi kebakaran besar yang sukar dibendung.

Kedutaan Besar Malaysia di Jakarta dilempar najis

2010/08/23
JAKARTA: Kedutaan Besar Malaysia ke Indonesia di sini telah dilempar najis manusia oleh penunjuk perasaan daripada kumpulan Benteng Demokrasi Rakyat (Bendera) pada satu demonstrasi petang ini.

Seorang daripada 37 penunjuk perasaan itu telah melemparkan najis itu ke dalam perkarangan kedutaan itu melepasi pintu pagar hadapan dan di atas kepala barisan anggota polis Indonesia yang sedang mengawal ketat di hadapan bangunan itu. Mereka turut melepaskan najis itu ke atas bendera Malaysia yang dipijak-pijak di atas jalan tempat mereka berkumpul di hadapan kedutaan itu. Kumpulan itu sebelumnya telah membawa lima bungkusan najis itu, ada yang diletakkan dalam kertas bungkusan makanan, dalam plastik dan dalam kotak polisterin dan dinyatakan sebagai "hadiah" untuk Duta Besar Malaysia ke Indonesia kerana Malaysia selama ini telah beberapa kali memberi "najis" yang lebih kotor kepada Indonesia.

Dengan tiba-tiba seorang daripada mereka melempar bungkusan kertas berisi najis itu ke dalam pagar kedutaan itu dan pada masa yang sama, najis turut dilepaskan ke atas bendera Malaysia yang mereka sedang pijak itu.

Demonstrasi itu diadakan bagi menandakan kemarahan mereka terhadap Malaysia yang mereka dakwa telah merendahkan maruah Indonesia dalam insiden di perairan Bintan pada 13 Ogos lalu apabila polis Malaysia menahan tiga pegawai penguatkuasa Kementerian Kelautan dan Perikanan Indonesia.

Ia juga untuk menyatakan kekecewaan rakyat terhadap kepemimpinan Presiden Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, yang dikatakan sangat lemah menghadapi Malaysia.
Berikutan kejadian lempar najis itu polis Indonesia menangkap tiga orang pelaku berkenaan.

Demonstrasi itu berlangsung selama sejam.

Seorang wakil kumpulan itu kemudian memberitahu wartawan yang meliputi peristiwa itu bahawa mereka telah memberi kata dua kepada polis Indonesia iaitu lepaskan rakan-rakan mereka itu daripada tahanan atau mereka akan melakukan operasi usir rakyat Malaysia petang ini.

Operasi yang dinamakan "Sweeping Rakyat Malaysia" itu dirancang akan dilakukan di hadapan bangunan kumpulan itu di Jalan Diponegoro, Menteng, di sini.

Polis Indonesia telah menugaskan ramai anggota untuk mengawal ketat di hadapan bangunan kedutaan Malaysia, setelah mendapat maklumat bahawa demonstrasi berkenaan akan disertai antara 300 dan 500 penunjuk perasaan.

Dalam insiden di perairan Malaysia-Indonesia itu, bahagian penguatkuasa Kementerian Kelautan dan Perikanan menahan tujuh nelayan Malaysia manakala Polis Marin Malaysia pula menahan tiga pegawai pengkuatkuasa kementerian dari Indonesia itu, masing-masing kerana didakwa menceroboh wilayah masing-masing.

Kedua-dua negara kemudian membebaskan tahanan-tahanan itu pada 17 Ogos lalu. - BERNAMA

Persoalan: Kenapa Polis Indonesia tidak meleraikan demonstrasi jalanan dengan menggunakan 'water cannon' atau gas pemedih mata? Adakah SBY sebenar nya merestui provokasi berterusan sebegini untuk mencemarkan maruah Malaysia sebagai tetamu di Tanah Jawa???

Jangan terlalu berani mencabar

Jangan terlalu berani mencabar
Mingguan Malaysia 15 Ogos 2010

Kolumnis ultra kiasu The Centre for Policy Initiative (CPI), dalam artikel terbarunya minggu lalu, berulang kali menyebut nama saya. Artikel kontroversinya turut mengundang laporan polis oleh Perkasa. Saya hanya ketawa kecil membaca artikel tersebut kerana ternyata kolumnisnya amat jahil dalam memahami sejarah dan kehidupan bernegara, apatah lagi untuk memahami perlembagaan.

Beliau yang tinggal di bumi bertuah ini langsung tidak bersyukur, malah mempersendakan dan menghinakan kedudukan istimewa agama Islam dan Melayu sebagaimana yang termaktub dalam perlembagaan.

Saya cadangkan beliau berhijrah ke negara lain, jika negara ini sudah tidak ada lagi kebebasan baginya. Pergilah ke negara asal-usulnya atau ke barat, kerana di sana lebih banyak ‘kebebasan’ untuk membina gereja paling besar dan patung paling tinggi di dunia serta, sekolah vernakular, termasuk juga melakukan perbuatan sumbang seperti seks bebas.

Nak kata beliau bangga dengan keturunannya, tidak juga, sebab beliau lebih gemar menggunakan nama Mat Salleh walaupun matanya begitu sepet. Beliau membuat analogi sampahnya melalui permainan bolasepak semata-mata untuk menghina Islam dan Melayu. Nasihat saya, tidak payah berbelit-belit kerana ia menampakkan kedangkalan ilmu beliau. Beliau begitu anti Melayu dan Islam.

Ternyata beliau amat jahil (mungkin sengaja) dalam memahami perlembagaan dan asal-usul negara ini atas sikap ultra kiasu. Keadilan baginya adalah sama rata dan sama rasa bukan meletakkan sesuatu pada tempatnya. Apakah beliau tidak menyedari bahawa bilangan rumah ibadat bukan Islam melebihi berkali ganda daripada masjid dan surau. Pun begitu beliau masih tidak berpuas hati. Beliau mahukan patung Mazu dan patung-patung lain serta gereja menjadi mercu tanda, terbesar dan tertinggi, barulah iatu dinamakan adil, bertepatan dengan hak kebebasan dan hak asasi manusia.

Saya cadangkan beliau supaya membawa ideanya itu ke negara barat, mungkin negara asal usulnya di China. Cadangkan apa yang beliau mahu terhadap mereka. Saya amat yakin cadangan beliau akan ‘dibakul sampahkan’ sebab tidak masuk akal, kecuali di Malaysia, kerana toleransi ditunjukkan oleh pribumi tidak ada tolok bandingnya. Pergilah ke Kelantan, orang bukan Melayu boleh dikira dengan jari, tetapi mereka memiliki patung Buddha yang begitu besar sekali. Ini belum termasuk Pulau Pinang dan negeri-negeri lain. Masihkah tidak bersyukur?

Keistimewaan Islam termasuk mengembangkan syiar Islam seperti membina masjid dan surau sudah termaktub dalam perlembagaan. Namun, kebanyakan surau dan masjid kebanyakannya dibina menggunakan peruntukan wang zakat, walaupun tidak salah jika kerajaan mahu menggunakan wang negara. Tetapi untuk mengelakkan kontroversi, pemimpin negara hanya menggunakan harta orang Islam sahaja. Tidak kurang yang membinanya melalui kutipan derma dan sedekah hartawan. Apakah beliau masih buta mata hatinya? Jangan pulak kata kerajaan tidak memberikan peruntukan kepada rumah ibadat bukan Islam.

Seringkali saya timbulkan kenapa perlukan bilangan rumah ibadat yang banyak dan bersaiz tinggi dan besar, sedangkan keperluan penganutnya tidak seberapa ramai? Justeru, tidak perlulah gatal tangan membeli dan buka gereja di rumah kedai. Lepas itu salahkan kerajaan kerana tidak membantu membiayainya. Janganlah jadi kafir harbi.

Ketika Perlembagaan digubal, Kerajaan British telah menubuhkan sebuah Jawatankuasa Kerja yang terdiri daripada wakil Kerajaan British sendiri, penasihat Majlis Raja-Raja dan pemimpin-pemimpin parti. Pada Mac 1956 satu Suruhanjaya Perlembagaan diketuai Lord Reid telah ditubuhkan untuk merangka dan meneliti Perlembagaan Persekutuan Tanah Melayu. Suruhanjaya ini begitu memahami kedudukan Tanah Melayu ketika itu.

Kedudukan pribumi dan pandangan mereka diperhalusi. Maka tidak hairanlah lima perkara utama berkaitan Islam dan pribumi difokuskan seperti kedudukan Raja-Raja Melayu, kedudukan agama Islam, kedudukan bahasa Melayu, kedudukan istimewa orang Melayu dan kerakyatan sama rata. Walaupun PAS menuduh Perlembagaan Reid ini perlembagaan kafir kerana kerjanya suka mengkafir, ruang untuk Islam dan pribumi berkembang begitu besar, dengan tidak menafikan hak bukan Islam. Kelebihan yang dinikmati oleh Islam dan pribumi inilah yang menimbulkan kedengkian dan rasa tidak puas beliau dan ultra kiasu yang lain.

Mereka sengaja tidak mahu sedar bahawa dengan kelebihan ini juga, mereka beroleh keuntungan. Aktiviti keagamaan mereka tidak pernah disekat, malahan mereka bebas untuk mengamalkannya tanpa diganggu-gugat. Sedih juga kadangkala melihat umat Islam sembahyang jumaat berjemur sehingga ke jalan raya disebabkan saiz masjid yang tidak dapat menampung keperluan jamaah. Itupun masih dipertikaikan.

Pertikaian mengenai status agama Islam seolah-olah tiada penghujung walaupun ia amat sensitif. Beliau tidak setuju dengan mata pelajaran agama Islam yang diajar di sekolah dan budaya berdoa ketika perhimpunan seminggu sekali yang tidak sampai tiga minit pun. Terlalu bersifat Islam dan Melayu katanya. Sekiranya inipun dicabut, apakah yang masih tinggal? Apa guna perlembagaan? Sebagai ganti pelajar bukan Islam boleh mempelajari mata pelajaran bahasa ibunda dan pendidikan moral yang sudah diselitkan serba sedikit ajaran agama lain. Tidak cukupkah lagi? Beri betis nak peha. Satu sahaja yang saya pinta agar beliau dan sekutunya, beramal dengan ajaran agama mereka dengan menjauhi judi, arak, zina, seks bebas dan lain-lain. Barulah aman negara ini.

Cuba siasat silibus mata pelajaran di negeri China dan di India, adakah matapelajaran agama Islam diberikan hak kepada minoriti umat Islam Cina di sana? Sudah tentu tidak. Malah mereka ditindas. Begitu juga di negara barat, berdoa mengikut ajaran Kristian adalah perkara biasa. Umat Islam di sana diam sahaja kerana mereka tahu itu bukan negara asal mereka. Kenapa mahu mempertikaikan bacaan doa dalam sebuah negara Islam?

Adakah dengan amalan doa tersebut, hati orang bukan Islam akan cair lantas memeluk Islam? Benci sungguh beliau terhadap Islam. Doa adalah salah satu amalan budaya orang Melayu Islam. Takkan kita mahu hapus semua identiti pribumi semata-mata mahu meraikan orang lain. Jika begitulah keadaannya, tukar sahaja nama Malaysia kepada Cinasia atau Indiasia. Pelik sungguh species sebegini, tak habis-habis cuba mencabar kedudukan Islam dan pribumi.

Begitu juga dengan Sekolah Missionari yang telah diambilalih oleh kerajaan. Bukanlah menjadi isu besar jika identiti penjajah seperti lambang salib ditukar kepada identiti tempatan. Tidakkah ia perlu diMalaysiakan sifatnya sesuai dengan keadaan masyarakat di sini? Kenapa masih mahu mengekalkan identiti penjajah? Apakah mengekalkan identiti Melayu atau tempatan bermakna memelayukan bukan Melayu? Apakah kita langsung menolak asimilasi walaupun sedikit? Apakah majoriti langsung tidak ada hak dalam masyarakat minoriti?

Beliau tidak perlu menghantar ‘anak’nya (jika ada anak sah taraf) ke sekolah kebangsaan, jika dia tidak yakin dengan sekolah kebangsaan atau pun mungkin dimelayukan. Kehadiran ‘anak’ beliau tidak diperlukan di sini. Hantar sahaja ‘anak’nya itu ke sekolah di negara asal-usulnya atau ke seberang laut. Cubalah buat kajian berapa ramai produk pelajar bukan Melayu yang telah berjaya hasil didikan di sekolah kebangsaan peringkat menengah setelah mereka tamat pembelajaran di sekolah vernakular? Tidak juga mereka memeluk Islam melalui amalan doa pagi ketika perhimpunan.

Persoalan juga ditimbulkan mengenai pertubuhan bukan Islam di sekolah seperti yang telah saya tulis dalam Mingguan Malaysia 1 Ogos 2010. Tidak perlu saya ulang. Bacalah. Persoalan kenapa bukan Islam tidak boleh berdakwah kepada orang Islam, bacalah perlembagaan, jangan jadi jahil.

Beliau juga membangkitkan mereka yang memeluk Islam yang dibantu dari segi kewangan. Tidakkah beliau tahu bahawa bantuan tersebut dibuat melalui asnaf zakat, bukan wang sekutu ultra kiasu beliau yang selalu cuba mengelakkan diri daripada membayar cukai? Janganlah terlalu berani mencabar.

Sebenarnya semua perkara yang dibangkitkan itu adalah tuntutan pertubuhan haram Inter- Faith Council (IFC) dan Majlis Peguam satu ketika dahulu. Agama Islam dilabelkan sebagai zalim kerana tidak membenarkan mereka yang memeluk Islam untuk murtad kembali.

Beliau tidak perlu mengambil kes Susie Teoh, Banggarma dan Azlina Jailani (Lina Joey) untuk dijadikan isu. Kes mereka ini agak rumit disebabkan oleh perancangan jahat tangan di belakang dan orang seperti beliau. Islam tidak benarkan seseorang itu setelah memeluk Islam, keluar sewenang-wenang ibarat kedai kopi. Inilah yang membezakan antara Islam dengan agama beliau. Lagipun kita tidak pernah memaksa bukan Islam memeluk Islam. Tetapi setelah memeluk Islam, mereka tidak boleh boleh keluar sesuka hati. Kehormatan Islam mesti dipelihara baru ada beza dengan beliau. Jika tidak Islam sama sahaja dengan agama lain. Beliau sebut sahaja tiga isu murtad ini, saya sudah dapat tangkap niat jahat di sebalik perkara ini dibangkitkan.

Umat Islam menghalang Azlina Jailani murtad kerana bercanggah dengan perlembagaan persekutuan perkara 160 (2) mengenai definisi Melayu dan Islam. Azlina bukan lagi Melayu setelah keluar Islam sebab Melayu mesti beragama Islam mengikut perlembagaan. Maknanya, Lina sudah tidak ada bangsa. Maka dia sudah tidak layak bermukim di bumi tercinta ini sebab bangsanya telah tiada.

Beliau juga mengambil berat tentang adik saya yang turut memeluk Islam. Terima kasih. Adik saya memeluk Islam kerana beliau banyak mengkaji Islam selain daripada melihat contoh abangnya seperti saya. Oleh kerana adik saya tidak anti Islam, beliau sanggup duduk dalam kelas untuk belajar agama Islam kerana minat yang amat mendalam terhadap Islam. Pada saya elok juga beliau dan sekutunya belajar sedikit tentang agama majoriti ini untuk mengelakkan salah faham, daripada terus menyakitkan hati orang Islam dan menghina Islam.

Cuba kita bandingkan bagaimana keadaan orang Islam yang tinggal di kawasan majoriti bukan Islam. Toleransinya amat tinggi. Umat Islam tidak menimbulkan masalah kepada bukan Islam, kecuali haknya diambil dan mereka ditindas, seperti yang berlaku di Selatan Thai, Filipina dan Palestin. Melayu Islam di Singapurapun tidak bising-bising walaupun tanahair mereka dirampas. Mereka duduk diam-diam sahaja, walaupun hak Islam dan Melayu mereka semakin hari semakin dicabut dan terhakis serta dicairkan oleh orang sekutu beliau.

Lihatlah toleransi kita di sini. Pada saya kerana Melayu memeluk Islam 600 tahun lalulah yang menyebabkan orang bukan Islam boleh hidup senang-lenang di bumi bertuah ini. Nilai-nilai Islam mengajar orang Melayu supaya menjaga hak bukan Islam dan jangan menganiayai mereka. Andainya orang Melayu tidak memeluk Islam, apakah nasib bukan Melayu akan menjadi seperti umat Islam di negeri China atau di India, yang begitu tertindas dan teraniaya? Sebenarnya Islamlah yang melembutkan hati orang Melayu untuk menerima orang bukan Melayu di negara ini. Justeru, janganlah kedudukan Islam itu diungkitkan dan disalahkan kerana ia amat menghiriskan hati kami.
