No matter whoever approached him, the blind Jewish beggar will definitely not waste his chance to incite them to hate the Prophet Muhammad, Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam (peace be upon him)!
All kinds of curses would spew forth from the beggar's lips even though he had never known the Prophet personally!
The news about the blind Jewish beggar's daily cursing and badmouthing him came to the knowledge of the Prophet Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam!
Even then, the Holy Prophet Muhammad did not get angry and he ignored the blind Jewish beggar's insults against himself!
On the contrary, from that day onwards, at each morning, the Prophet Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam visited the blind beggar and brought food for him!
Without saying a single word, the Blessed Messenger (peace be upon him) would feed the beggar with his own hand!
The blind beggar would chew the food being fed to him and eat contentedly. Once he was full, he'd express his gratitude without knowing that the one who had fed him was the Holy Prophet of Allah, Muhammad Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam!
The Prophet Muhammad Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam continued to feed the blind beggar without fail each day till the day he died! Throughout his service to the blind beggar, he never identified himself to the blind Jewish beggar!
After the Prophet Muhammad Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam had passed away, no one brought food to the blind beggar anymore!
The blind Jewish beggar waited daily and was perplexed as to why the kind man did no longer come to feed him and provide for him as he had done all this while.
The blind beggar waited in vain for the kind gentleman who had never missed visiting him each and every morning all these while .
One day, the closest Companion of the Holy Prophet Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam, Saiyidina Abu Bakar As Siddiq @ The Truthful One, Radhiallahu Anhu (May Allah be pleased with him) visited the home of his daughter, Saiyidatina Aishah, Radhiallahu Anha (May Allah be pleased with her), the widow of the Blessed Messenger (SAW).
Abu Bakar asked Aishah, " O my child, is there any habit of my beloved (Prophet) that I have yet to carry on?"
Aisyah replied, " Dear Father, you are verily a follower of the Sunnah (Habits) of the Prophet and there is none that you have yet to do except for one deed only!"
" What is that?" asked Abu Bakar.
"Every morning, the Prophet of Allah will go to the end of the marketplace, bringing food to a blind old Jewish beggar who lives there and feed him by his hand," said Aishah.
The next day, Abu Bakar As Siddiq went to the marketplace with food for the blind beggar. Abu Bakar As Siddiq approached the beggar and started to feed him.
At the first handfull of food being fed to him, the blind Jewish beggar became angry and shouted out ," Who are you?"
Abu Bakar answered " I am the one who usually feeds you every morning".
"No! Don't you lie to me!" objected the blind beggar.
Abu Bakar was shocked, thus he asked" Why do you say so?"
Answered the blind Jewish beggar," Because when he comes to me, I always felt it easy to hold his hand and found it easy to chew the food he fed me! The man who used to feed me would make the food fine before feeding it to me!"
Abu Bakar As Siddiq could not hold back his tears anymore and he burst out crying and had to disclose who he actually was to the beggar.
"Verily, I am not the one who used to come and feed you. I am one of his Companions for the noble one is alive no more! He was none other than the Blessed Prophet of Allah, Muhammad Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam!"
"Muhammad?" asked the blind old Jewish beggar, totally shocked with what he had just heard.
"You mean to tell me that the one who came each morning without fail and fed me by his hand was Muhammad?" asked the beggar.
"Yes! It was Muhammad!" answered Abu Bakar.
Immediately, the blind old Jewish beggar wailed out in despair and cried so pitifully coming to realise that it was none other than the Holy Prophet who had been feeding him all this while.
"All these while!...all these while, I had been cursing him, I had been slandering him!
Not once has he ever scolded me ! He kept coming every morning to feed me! He is so noble!.." cried the old blind Jewish beggar as he wiped away his flowing tears on his cheeks.
The blind beggar reached out to Saiyidina Abu Bakar As Siddiq, the first Caliph of the Muslims and testified before him the Kalimah Shahadah :
'Ash har doo Allah ila ha ill lall Lah! Wa ash har doo anna Muhammad darr Rasulullah!' declaring that There is No God but Allah and that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah!
From that moment onwards, the blind old Jewish beggar became a Muslim. @};-

We, the people of Malaysia must realise that we are all interconnected as a community of Mankind!
We may differ in our ethnicities and faith but deep down we all feel the same pain, the same joy and the same emotions and passions that shows that we are all the Children of Our Father, the Prophet Adam Alaihis Salam, may peace be upon him!
The Kg Berembang squatters who are mostly Malay Muslims now know that they can depend on their fellow Malaysians from the Chinese and the Indian communities to come to their defence and together face up to the authorities who although mostly made up of Malay Muslims forget their responsibilities to exercise their authority in a manner befitting them as Muslims who must obey Allah the Almighty God and the Prophet Muhammad Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam in carrying out their orders!Islam forbids those who are in authority to deal with their subjects in a harsh and cruel manner!
When these authorities do what they have done, they have to face Almighty Allah in the Hereafter and answer for their highhandedness!
As for the Malaysian Malays, now you know that those who crow like bloody cocks in Parliament and in the recent General Assembly of UMNO won't put to practice what they preach!
Where the hell are Pemuda UMNO?
Where the hell are Putera UMNO?
Where are Hishamudin and Khairy with their promises to defend the Malays with their raised 'kris'es' to champion the cause of the poor Malays?
All bloody hogwash!
I am ashamed to see such rhetoric spewers who only are masquarading as the Champions of the Malays when the TV cameras are focused on them but in reality it is none but the 'Keling Hindu' and the 'China Bukit' who have come to defend the Malays who all these while used to insult their fellow Malaysians from the Indian and Chinese communities as such!
To the Malays of Kg Berembang, I ask this:
'Siapa pembela kamu? UMNO? MCA? MIC? GERAKAN?'
Hanya mereka dari komuniti India dan China yang ada keberanian turun membela nasib kamu semua!
Ya, mereka yang selama ini dihina, dicaci dan digelar Keling dan Apek yang ada semangat 'kejantanan' yang sebenarnya untuk bersama kamu mempertahankan rumah rumah kamu!
Mereka sedia meletakkan diri dan nyawa mereka sendiri menahan pukulan dan belasahan dari FRU dan gerombolan sesama bangsa dan agama kamu iaitu Melayu Melayu yang menjadi Pasukan Penguatkuasa rakus dari MPAJ!
Sedarlah diri! Celikkan lah mata hati kamu terhadap siapa sebenarnya rakan senegara kamu dan siapa petualang bangsa kamu yang sebenarnya?
Islam tinggal nama saja! Yang bermaharajalela adalah Wang, Pangkat dan Kedudukan!
Inilah hakikat sebenarnya keadaan dinegara kita ini! Wallahi Wabillahi!
Semoga Allah SWT memberikan pengajaran setimpalnya kepada mereka yang mahazalim!
Mahathir dah tak berkuasa dah! Dah tak boleh nak letak label Mahafir'aun terhadap beliau!
Nah, sekarang zaman Islam Hadhari!
Nak kutuk dan maki siapa lagi wahai rakyat Kg Berembang kalau tidak Al Toyo yang melangkaui kuasa sang mamanda Perdana Menteri?
Fikir lah sewaras warasnya! Kuasa ditangan siapa sebenarnya dinegara ini?
Rakyat cuma anak tangga tempat mereka menginjak ke takhta takhta kerajaan dan bila sang miskin menjerit meminta belas kasihan dan pertimbangan, maka belantan FRU datang memecah kepala kepala mereka!
Adil sungguh ! Entahlah!
Memang hadith Nabi SAW tentang keadaan diakhir zaman ini sudah menjadi kenyataan!'
"Di akhir zaman akan datang satu keadaan dimana wanita wanita akan berpakaian tetapi 'telanjang' dan orang orang yang berkuasa akan memgang cemeti dan memukul rakyat jelata!"
Nah! Apakah tidak benar dizaman kita ini , perempuan perempuan tak kira bangsa dan agama ramai memperagakan pusat, perut, buntut dan dada dada mereka dikhalayak ramai?
Apakah tidak benar FRU memecahkan kepala, mematahkan tulang temulang sang rakyat yang cuba sedaya upaya mempertahankan hak hak mereka?
Sedarilah keadaan sebenarnya dinegara ini yang kununnya telah merdeka!
Merdeka memang merdeka tetapi masih dijajah oleh sesama bangsa dan agama!
La haula wala quwwata illa billah hil aliyyil azhim! Tiada Kuasa selain Allah yng Maha Perkasa!
Manusia akan kembali kepada Allah dan akan disoal tentang kuasa yang dipinjamkan oleh Allah SWT secara sementara kepada mereka!

Malays, Chinese, Indians, Sikhs, Orang Asli's, Sabahan's and Sarawakian's! Each and everyone of us who is born here and lays claim to this land as his or her motherland! Take a step back and survey what's taking place in our multi ethnic, multi faithed country called Malaysia!
We need to realise that as long as we keep bickering over our differences in ethnicities and faith till Doomsday, the very parties who are crushing the rights of poor folks like the Kg Berembang villagers will continue to reign supreme in this land!
Yes, whilst the brave people of groups like JERIT and other social activists are willing to face grievous harm to themselves, get arrested by the authorities and have themselves imprisoned just because they dared to put to practice what is actually conforming to the hadith of the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Alaihi Wassallam:
'Whomsoever amongst you sees an injustice take place before you, then you must stop it with your hands (ability, power, strength); failing which you must speak out against the injustice (as we bloggers, writers,etc do) ; and if you can't even do that ; then to hate it (the injustice) in your heart! Surely that (hating in the heart) is the sign of those who are weakest in their faith and close to Kuffur!'
The reality is that if we, the people continue to remain separated into groups of individuals, each not willing to stand up and defend our collective rights to be allowed to live in peace and treated with the respect that we ought to be given by the relevant authorities, then we will see more instances like what is taking place in Kg Berembang, Ampang, Selangor repeat itself and those that are corrupt to run riot as they please in robbing this nation blind!
The authorities can't be expected to exercise proper accountability now after the changing of power from Mahathir to Abdullah Badawi!
Those two are just at the peak of governance of the Federal Government! It is the ones running the State Governments who do as they please for many of the government's agencies like the ACA are muzzled up and can't operate as they should because of the backlash that they face whenever they try and do their duties.
The officers get transferred, demoted, threatened and hassled in their daily activities. Official and invincible redtape permeates each and every government department, office and ministry.
These are all the various cancers that plague the frameworks of this 49 years old government. The ministers , director generals, heads of this and that might change and be replaced by others but the mindset remains ingrained into each and every part of the government machinery!
Even if one wants to do his or her duty as per the book, the senior corrupt ones will do their best to get the officer sacked or transferred elsewhere! They will even resort to black magic and cast spells to torment and terrorise the victim to even an early death! We all know tht such things do happen and take place here in our lands!
As long as the Earth exists, such people will continue to be there in different forms and names, but the evil remains the same. Lately, MPAJ, MPPJ,MPPP,MPK and many other local councils are being exposed to be the champions of injustice!
Local elections might be able to change the situation and stop the rot taking place in all those councils but without ourselves, the citizens, getting together and protect our rights and those of our fellow Malaysians, nothing will change!
Instead of fighting amongst ourselves unnecessarily, we must state our stands against the very corrupt ones ruining our lifes under the pretext of progress!
The rich become more wealthier whereas poor village folks become more destitute! Damn!
23 ACTIVIST ARRESTED, HOUSES DEMOLISHED!
After almost 8 hours of defending 62 houses in Kampung Berembang, finally the police and local authorities crushed the resistance resulting in 23 arrests including arrest of PSM and JERIT leaders, houses being demolished and burned down and one women in a very critical condition, fighting for her life in the hospital.
At the village, all three entrances to the village have been blocked by human shield and other items. There were also a large number of activists mainly from JERIT and PSM, along with several other villagers from other Urban Settlers community aligned to the Coalition of Housing and Urban Settlers present. The situation was tense and the people waited for the showdown.
After more than 3 hours of initial stand-off, the first ambush by MPAJ at around 10.30am saw a massive clash between the local authorities and the villagers.
The fight broke out with every corner, fist fighting, punching and dragging. The local authorities with 3 huge demolition machines failed to penetrate the human shield but it resulted in the local authorities arresting and assaulting 8 people – 2 villagers and 6 activist.
The assault was brutal but the people were equally strong and the first wave of attack by the authorities failed. There were injuries from both sides. Both parties retreated to original positions.
Then came the second round of stand still. The District Police Chief of Ampang, ACP Amer and his high ranking officers were also prevented from entering the area from another location. That resulted in another arrest by the police. Human Rights Commissioner, Dato Siva Subramaniam arrived shortly.
Then in a series of negotiations between the District police Chief, Dato Siva, MPAJ officer- Ismail, the developer and PSM Secretary general S.Arutchelvan created a stand still but a tense situation.
The police Chief told that he prefers to call off the operation as he said the situation is very tense and serious and he wants to avoid a bloodshed.
Siva Subramaniam said that the demolition should be called off and SUHAKAM (Human Rights Commission) will conduct a meeting with the relevant bodies to resolve the issue.
But the Local authorities- MPAJ who were under the Instruction of the Developers was very adamant to bull doze. They told the police that they have enough people to carry out the operation.
The police then told all parties to hold on, as there were attempt to reach certain Government authorities to call off the exercise.
Both parties stood their ground. The developers and the MPAJ said that the people did not have an Injunction while the people said that the case was to be heard in April next year and therefore the authorities have to wait and the land status must remain unchanged.
Then the police Chief, MPAJ and SUHAKAM representative went to the Developers site office with the instruction that there should be no forced eviction until some agreement can be reached.
Just after 1 pm, the whole situation from gloom changed to happiness when 2 villagers shouted victory and carried with them some papers. They managed to get a letter calling for the demolition and forced eviction to be postponed. The letter was released by the Prime Minister's Department and signed by the Prime Minister's private secretary. The villager Pak Lang told the people gathered, that the Government has opened its eyes.
We have a letter now and thanked everyone. The activists were very cautious and told the people not to be fooled but wait for the final confirmation that the forced eviction exercise will be called off.
Pak Lang has already started singing praises for the Prime Minister.
A team of villagers and the PSM Sec Gen, S.Arutchelvan then took the letters to the Developers site office. They were shocked to find that the Developers has catered a lot of food to feed the government servants.
Meanwhile the Human Rights Commission representative , Dato Siva said that the letter is good enough to stop the demolition of houses.
He said this is from the highest authority- The Prime Minister's Office. He later held a Press Conference at the side and left.
An hour later, things became sour again when Riot police started parking their heavy vehicles in two main entrance to the village.
The news then came that the Selangor Chief Minister (MB) Khir Toyo has overruled the PM's letter and has called for the operation to carry on.
Pak Lang was stunned and in tears. The villagers were stunned. The Villagers then made a human chain with the activists and waited for the ultimate assault, which was imminent.
Then a team of police under the order of the Deputy Police Chief came to arrest PSM Secretary General S.Arutchelvan, who was at that time the key negotiator.
He was told to surrender but he remained defiant. Arul was then arrested, dragged and handcuffed by around ten policemen. He was then taken away to a separate police detention center.
The rest of the people continued to hold on. They managed to hold on for another half an hour, then the next series of arrest took place.
Sivarajan, PSM's Treasurer, Chang Lih Kang- SUARAM were arrested, other JERIT leaders as well other activists and villagers were arrested.
13 more people were arrested, a fight broke out, more people got injured and one young lady collapsed and did not regain consciousness. She was taken to the Hospital nearby!
The authorities moved from every angle, one house was razed and the rest went down one by one.
The resistance collapsed under a heavy presence of riot police with authorities outnumbering the people by 3 to 1.
All those arrested were taken to the Hulu Kelang police station except for Arutchelvan who was kept at the Ampang Police Headquaters.
He was later taken to the Hulu Kelang Police Station and after a massive protest by Human Rights Groups, all those arrested were released just before midnight the same day.
They were released on police bail and told to report at the Ampang magistrate on 4 th December 2006.
Around ten police reports at different parts of the country was also done by the JERIT network condemning the arrests and the forced evictions..
At the village, the houseless people erected tents.
They were still stunned how the Chief Minister- Khir Toyo can overrule a letter from the Prime Minister's department? They are now more convinced that the Prime Minister has no control over this matter.
The Human Rights Commission @ SUHAKAM is equally stunned and are going to call for a Press Conference the following day.
The arrest of 23 people is perhaps the first time after many years when such a huge resistance was put up.
The last major resistance in an Urban Settlers area was in 1998 in Kampung Sg. Nipah where 55 people were arrested.
Today the resistance in Kampung Berembang has radicalized the community there.
The people are putting up tents and are staying put in the same land. Under the ruins, they are going to attempt to build their homes again.
The resistance this time also saw how the various races can unite under a class solidarity to fight the oppressors. The villagers- all of them Muslim Malays have now realized a few important lesson.
They now see that the issue is simply that the Developer(capitalist) has bought over the local authorities and the State Government and police are standing behind them. The Prime Minister's letter did not stand.
The only people who stood with the poor urban settlers were other settlers from various ethnic and comrades from the socialist party and the JERIT coalition as well as the other activists! They now understand who are their allies and who are their enemy.

Chinese Malaysians also bravely confront the cruel MPAJ Demolition squad and put themselves in harm's way before the swinging batons and truncheons of the FRU and get walloped, pummelled and beaten to a pulp for daring to try and stop the destruction of the Kg.Berembang poor squatter colony!
Homes of the poor are bulldozed mercilessly by those whom the villagers now know that they are no better than gangsters in uniform!
The Malays of Kg Berembang now have seen how the very people whom many thought were their enemies and will 'rob' them of their rights and 'Ketuanan Melayu' must surely be regretting time held suspicions against the Chinese and the Indians who are their defenders against injustice that has been perpetrated against them by their own kind!
Today, the villagers of Kg Berembang are seeing with their own eyes that the 'Keling Hindu' are the ones who are willing to shed their own blood by lying down on the grounds to stop the MPAJ demolition crews from bulldozing the Malay villagers homes!
Look at this Malaysian Indian brave fellow citizen who has laid down himself to stop the MPAJ Destroyers from harming the squatters homes!
This is the 'Keling Hindu' who is despised by some of the racist idiots all these while thinking so badly of the Indians of Malaysia and now who ought to be ashamed of themselves for failing to realise that evil exists even in their own races and fellow 'Muslims'!
I put the ' marks here because a true Muslim will never commit these injustices as those being done by the MPAJ!
Look at the faces of these poor people whose kids are now traumatised by seeing their homes, the places they grew up in, be there no more!
Verily, those responsible for causing these children to cry in fear and despair will not have a good end!
The Kg Berembang villagers will surely curse the animals in uniform who did not spare them a thought and have bulldozed their homes! They will now see their fellow 'Malays' in the MPAJ to be what they truly are ! Devils in uniform!
No amount of pleading will change the minds of those whose hearts are closed!
Asking these corrupted ones to spare a thought about where the villagers will sleep tonight is as asking a stonewall for compassion!
They are blind to all these ! They are deaf, dumb and heartless towards the poor!
To the rich and infamous, they'll kiss the hands of those who have the ringgits! Such are those who are not bothered as to the rights of the poor!
All these people have gathered to show support to the villagers yet found out that they are dealing with those whose hearts have been blackened with arrogance and contempt for the poor!
These social activists put to practice what many in UMNO just preach!
These folks from JERIT are not kith or kin to the Kg Berembang villagers yet here they are ; ready to face the dangers from the FRU and MPAJ Demolition crews who are ready to beat them up without mercy!
These youths who have been arrested are not the 'Mat Rempits' being spoonfed by Putera UMNO!
These are university students and activists from JERIT who are only trying to help the Kg Berembang villagers!
These are people who do not have nothing but compassion for their fellow Malaysians. See the various ethnicities gathered here to defend the villagers homes!
See the rage in the eyes of this Malay MPAJ officer!
Is this the fellow Malay whom the Malays of Kg Berembang expecting to get any mercy from?
Where is the 'semangat Melayu' from this tough guy? He'd smash you before you can even say 'Hidup Melayu!' and beat you to a pulp for daring to stand up for the rights of the common citizen!
From all those buttons on his shoulder, he's a first class merciless uniformed thug!
These are the Indians who dare to stand up to the Police and state their rights to defend the poor folks of Kg Berembang!
Malays out there! Look at who is defending your fellow Malays?
Is it Pemuda UMNO? Pemuda MCA? Gerakan?
Nahh.. they have bigger things to do. Like taking care of themselves and their pockets!
It's only activists like JERIT who dare defend the villagers!
Here are the MPAJ goon squads!
Here are those who don't give a hoot as to where the poor villagers are gonna sleep tonight and tomorrow and will only say ' We are just following orders!'
Where is the love? None to give!
Look at who is getting arrested because he tried to help the Kg Berembang Malays?
It is none but an Indian Malaysian who has the heart to defend his fellow citizens regardless of race or religious differences!
Syabas Mr Arutchelvam of JERIT!
Malays reading this report, take a good hard look at those whom some of the dimwits amongst the population call derogatory terms and insults against the Malaysian Indians as 'keling' and the Malaysian Chinese as 'China Bukit', etc!
These are the ones who have come forward as fellow Malaysians and have the 'balls' to defend the largely Malay squatter village of Kg.Berembang!
"Orang berbudi ; kita berbahasa!" Kawan ketika duka dan lara adalah kawan sejati!
Bukan macam pagar yang sebangsa dan seagama tetapi makan padi dengan begitu kejam dan lahap sekali!"
Meaning ' When people do us favors ; we reciprocate in return' and ' Not as trusting the fence that is of the same race and faith but in turn devour the padi @ rice in such cruelty and unabridled gluttony!
I feel so angry and sad at the same time reading and viewing the destruction and cruel eviction methods being deployed by the MPAJ @ Majlis Perbandaran Ampang Jaya and the use of the FRU @ Federal Reserve Units at the squatter colony at Kg.Berembang, Ampang, Selangor!
Kg.Berembang is located behind the Gleneagles Hospital, Jalan Ampang, Selangor. All these while, the squatter colony has been hidden from the public eyes by the grand private hospital building, a 5 star medical centre , usually the treatment centre for the nation's Sultan's, VVIP's and the cream of the crop, so to speak!
I understand that yes, the land does not belong to the villagers and that development is due to take place there.
But what I am not happy about is the manner in which the eviction has been carried out so far where the MPAJ has gone ahead and bulldozed the homes of those people who have been living there since twenty thirty years ago! Activists protesting the highhandedness of the cruel MPAJ have been arrested and thrown into the lockups!
TVPAS shows the villagers expressing their hurt, their feelings and their grievances of being treated like trash by the MPAJ here!
The photos are sourced from JERIT and Malaysiakini.
May God bless them and also TvPAS.com for the brave work they are doing for the people of Malaysia!
News is information and Knowledge is Power! Remember all these pictures and the pain of the people!
These people who have come and destroyed their homes are not 'Keling Hindu' or 'China Bukit' @ derogatory names that those Malays who are racist chauvinistic dimwits who at times will shout 'Hidup Melayu' whilst threatening to bathe their 'kris'es with Chinese or Indian blood are today perplexed to see none but these two ethnicities come forward to defend their Malay kampongs from the heartless demolition team of their fellow Malay majority MPAJ @ Majlis Perbandaran Ampang Jaya!
A Malaysian Indian woman gets arrested for wanting to protest against the demolition of Malay homes!
It is a gross act of injustice when local authorities spare the illegally built homes of the rich and infamous such as the 'Dream Palace' of Datuk Zakaria Mat Deros in the village of Pandamaran, a humongous structure jutting high above the village homes all around it ; yet are so hardhanded when it comes to homes of the poor villagers of Kg.Berembang!
What kind of a government do we have here in Malaysia? We go help others when disaster strikes our neighbouring countries and even go as far as Bam in Iran and to the quake hit mountain villages in Pakistan, yet we have corrupt and screwed up , recalcitrant local authorities like the MPAJ and MPK, cruelly destroy and crush the homes and belongings of the squatter villagers without giving them the alternative housings and allow them to move their belongings as they need to according to normal, decent, human to human courtesy!
Are they vicious, hardcore criminals, out to create mayhem and civil disorder that the FRU hve to be deployed to beat up women and children in their iron fist policies against poor villagers caught in a situation where they can't spit nor swallow?
Is this the example of how a caring government under the rhetoric of 'Islam Hadhari' of the ruling BN government?
Where is the spirit of human compassion that is being touted by these bloody politicians who do not practice what they preach?
I for one can only ask Almighty Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala to give those culprits their dues for victimising the poor people and treat them worse than criminals, by destroying the lifes and homes of such poor people living a hard life behind the facade of Selangor being one of the most developed states in Malaysia!
In their haste to demolish the squatter colonies, the authorities in the MPAJ and Selangor State Government have failed to exercise proper understanding and compassion towards the citizens of this state!
Where is the kindness they portray in the tv news sections and propaganda through the multimedia?
Where is the spirit of 'Islam Hadhari' that these hypocrites almost always showcase in all the clearly self glorifying shows and concerts that they hold every other day trying to fool the people that they are the ones who are advocating the empty slogan of 'Cemerlang, Gemilang and Terbilang' of the one's who are the top guns of this gone crazy local authorities?
It is clearly an injustice when a local authority fails to rule and go about it in a manner befitting those who are carrying the trust and responsibility placed upon them by a government that is voted into power by all the citizens, both the filthy rich, the middle class and the very poor citizens of this country and from those living in abject poverty as those squatters in Kg.Berembang!
Never forget that those of you who are now in power will one day return to the earth!
Yes, those of you, who live in palatial mansions, clothe yourselves in rich , expensive materials, dine in 5 star comforts and splurge as you please whilst still alive will one day be dead and cold, lying stiff, awaiting burial by those whom you will surely leave behind!
Those of you who go and wallop the poor! The women and the children! The poor villager trying to defend his home, his wife, his children, his family from your batons and shields, is going to raise his hands to Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala and ask God to teach you who are cruel! He is going to cry to Allah and ask that Allah teaches you all a lesson!
Are you that great that you can go on and commit such gross injustice to your fellow citizens?
The people will know what to do come the fateful day when we shall decide where our votes go to in the next General Election!
If you all still remain in power, then the Malaysian people surely deserve you! Really!
People of Malaysia, wake up now to the harsh reality behind all the lovey dovey propaganda that is being pushed to us by 'Cemerlang, Gemilang, Terbilang' spewing hard hearted ones in the MPAJ and State Government of Selangor!
They say that if you want to know whether justice prevails in the land, see whether only the poor get punished for being poor and the rich get away with everything?
To me, it surely looks like , justice in this land has been gang raped, sodomised and murdered! To top it all up, the perpetrators claim that they are innocent and the victims are the ones who violated them in the first place!No wonder the scales are lopsided all these while! Apathy Rules!
They have never been calibrated all these 49 years of ruling as they pleased! Tome to get new ones!May Justice be upheld in this country by punishing all the tyrants in power today! Ameen!

We seek nothing but the Redha of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala and the success of Islam to be understood by our fellow mankind as to what it really is and to dispel the misinformation about our Deen ul Haqq!
In Surah Al-An'am Chapter 6 Verse 162, Allah SWT commands :
'Say (O Muhammad Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam) " Verily, my Salat (prayers), my Sacrifice, my Living and my Dying are for Allah, the Lord of the 'Alameen (mankind,djinn, and all that exists).
By being sincere and joining other Mukmins and Mukminats in doing this noble effort, the Da'ee and Da'eeyah will be blessed by Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala to be constantly in remembrance of Rabbul Jaleel and reaffirm our Knowledge of Islam , Ad Deen ul Haqq , everytime we share any of the information regarding Islam and in return attain the peace of mind and sakinah that comes with the knowledge that we are sharing with others the Truth of Islam, Insya Allah.
All of our actions must be acts of worship towards Allah Ar Rahman Ar Raheem. Sincerity ensures that our deeds are carried out solely for the sake of Allah SWT and not expecting any worldly returns. Our heart must be sincere in coming in to do this noble work that is a continuation of the Efforts of the Prophets of Allahu Ta'ala.
If we were to ever go astray and start thinking that we are better than others and allow pride to seep in and corrupt our ikhlas fisabilillahi ta'ala, we must immediately repent and seek Allah's Forgiveness and try our best not to be anything but sincere and humble in our hearts.
It is human nature to like being praised. Those who like being cursed are either weird in the truest sense of the word or plain psycho! It's abnormal ! May Allah SWT save us from such folks! Ameen.
Doesn't mean that I ask that we be praised, be appreciated all the time! No way! Just asking that we be left to do what we want to without any hindrance for we do not go disturb anyone out there. We just do what we are asked to by our Lord Almighty! That's all!
Then there are the faultfinders. Yes, there are more faultfinders on Earth than there are those who appreciate us for whatever good we do. We see these kind each day online and offline! They think they know best and forget to realise that they aren't perfect in the first place, themselves!
I have come to meet so many of these Critics par Excellence in my life that I can easily sense them out and stay away from them for there's nothing good coming out from them except to complain, complain and complain till the sun arises from the West, Insya Allah!
A reminder now and then to us as to our going wrong's would be beneficial but to get it daily is just gonna drive us to an early grave, if we let them harangue us !
People who have yet to know us in depth almost always try and label us as such. They will accuse us of being 'narcissistic', 'syok sendiri' , 'angkat bakul', 'naik lif', and so on! Does that do us any good in the long run? Best, stay clear of such kind for the sake of our Peace of mind!
We who at first are so excited about helping others and ourselves in improving our knowledge and being in good spirits with the faith in Allah SWT and to follow the Sunnah of the Prophet SAW will soon get depressed, disillusioned and lose our spirit as a result of listening to all these 'bad news' folks!
Yup! No two ways about it! If you want to succeed in life and retain that aspect of being sincere towards this Da'wah effort, please.....please do not keep company with the likes of those who are blinkered in their views and who harbour bad vibes in their miserable souls! No good comes from associating with these kind.
Birds of a feather flock together, so the saying goes. Go mix with the good folks who fear Allah SWT and love the Sunnah of the Prophet SAW!
Remember his hadith about being friends with the perfume seller and staying away from the blacksmith! I am sure you know the meanings of the hadith!
I will share more about the principles of being a good Da'ee and Da'eeyah later. Got an important appointment with a friend coming from Penang who is a jeweller. Who knows? Maybe Allah SWT wants to give me some Razq from doing business with him. Please do'a for me! Insya Allah!
I pray that this Juma'at will see us being blessed by Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala and our sins be forgiven and baraqah given to us in return! Ameen Ya Rabbul Alameen.
Take care and have a nice day. Wassalamualaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh!

I hereby invite you to check out TV PAS.com which gives us an insight of what the leaders of the Islamic Party of Malaysia @ PAS have to say and share with us about the various issues and political happenings that have taken place and are still happening with regards to our lifes.
It doesn't matter if you are an UMNO, MCA, MIC, GERAKAN, PPP, IPF, DAP, PAS or PKR member. As long as you want to know all that is happening today in our nation, it is important for you to be well read, well exposed and alert to all media reportings.
TV PAS.com comes as a valuable source of alternative news and reports for us to contemplate and to evaluate as to what is really the truth and what is mere propaganda being dished out to us, the citizens of this country.
I still recall how the mainstream media and mouthpiece of the ruling government, RTM through it's 'Debat Perdana' programme almost always had the UMNO backbenchers specially invited to take part in the socalled debate to viciously attack the guests from the Opposition parties on the programme and the 'moderator' Datuk Johan Jaafar allow such assaults from the BN members with abandon!
Hence, this online alternative news media from Parti Islam se Malaysia is most welcome and a good source for news that will never make it past the edit button of the government controlled multimedia.
I am not endorsing this source a 100% or totally agree with whatever or whoever shares their views through this TV PAS.com but just sharing with you who might be interested in getting news from the other side of the ruling government !
I might agree with some and disregard those which are mere rhetoric from dubious characters appearing hence with on this medium.
I leave it to you to decide for your own. Use your commonsense and rationality. Happy viewing!
Malaysians in general are a very passive lot and are known for our 'tidak apa' attitude @ apathy!
We, the people of this country have weathered all kinds of instigative actions by those who love nothing more than to rent this country asunder with civil riots, bloodshed, destruction and mayhem!
Most of those who curse, rant and rave as well as spew hatred through the many online forums, chatrooms and blogs fail to reflect on how far we have all come to gain and attain a much more better stage of living a lifestyle that our forefathers could only have fantasised of!
When I look at the way our country was a few centuries back, I am amazed and grateful to God for all that we have now with us. Life back then must surely have been sort of a living hell and nightmare if we were to ever get transported back in time to the 1400's!
There were no proper roads, no facilities that we now take for granted with all our modern lifestyles and amenities.
The picture here shows KL as it was in 1884! All just attap huts with no proper drainage and sewage facilities! No airconditioned premises as we have today!
No electricity to speak of and if not for the 'Colonialists', progress would have not made it to our shores as we now have it.
Let's be a bit realistic here. Sure, the Portuguese, the Dutch, the British have invaded our country and spirited away most of our country's gold and riches and sort of left us as a sucked up orange but look at us now.
Through the teamwork of the various nationalities and ethnicities, both native and immigrants, we have together built up this nation with our forefather's blood, sweat and tears.
Looking at the weather beaten, darkened, craggy faces of those Malays, Chinese and Indians of old in the grainy black and white photos and the imagery of the 'Orang Putih' @ the 'Tuan's', with their handlebar moustaches and 'keep up the stiff upper lip Old Chap' poses of our former Colonial masters, I can't help but smile reflecting as to how times have changed!
Click on the photos to see them in a larger view, Insya Allah!
From simple atap huts, held together with rattan strips and hand hewed timber from our jungles and erected on marshy lands, the nation's capital @ Kuala Lumpur has grown to be one of the world's thriving metropolis complete with the world's tallest twin towers, arising into the clouds and showcasing our nation to be one that is to be reckoned with with our 'never say die' attitudes!
Take a look at how things were back then at the Padang @ Now Dataran Merdeka!
Indians with bullock carts were the transport providers back then. No Mercedes, No Proton!
If you had clothes to wear, you were already considered as 'Orang Kaya' @ Wealthy Folks!
Today, the great great grandsons and granddaughters of those poor folks argue so viciously as to who owns these lands? They forget the Story of Qarun and all his riches! Gone! Swallowed up by this Earth! All as a result of being too bloody greedy! Go search for the story!
Today, people who never had to go hungry for want of food talk about freedom of this, freedom of that, the Constitution and all legal mumbo jumbo as if they have built this country all by themselves and know better than all the others!
We forget that in those hard times, our forefathers were all united as one people!
They each did their own thing and never encroached into the others religious matters or bothered to differentiate between their skin colors! Our forefathers observed respect and were courteous to each other!People simply lived as one large happy family and cared for each other.
When World War 2 broke out, all Malayan citizens suffered and all helped out each other in order to survive from the Japanese Armies atrocities.
Malaya gained independence through the joint efforts of our forefathers. The Malays being the larger majority did all they could to fund Tunku and all the other Chinese and Indian leaders trip to London!
I am sure that some of you have read about how kampong folks took off whatever little pieces of gold and silver jewelleries they possessed and threw them into a sarong held by the activists of UMNO,MCA and the MIC to pool their resources to help the Malayan delegation pay for their airfares back then! The Makciks, Ah So's and Achees did their part for the country!
The spirit of unity back then is the foundation of this land! Never, ever , forget that! We must remain united as a country in order to succeed and progress!
We can't afford to see this country be destroyed because some bastards are so itchy to stab any other out there just to fulfill and satisfy their bloodlust and egoistic tendencies out of sheer hatred and being blinded by ethnocentric fallacies fuelled by jealousy and rage!
I mean all parties and groups concerned! It's not just UMNO,MCA,MIC,GERAKAN, DAP,PAS or PKR or whatever other names they want to label themselves with!
Don't sacrifice the fragile peace and harmony we now have and are enjoying!
If you want to eat, go ahead and eat till your tummy's bloated like hell! You want to do business? Go ahead, do so as best as you can! You want to build your homes high up into the skies? Shoot! Go build your own paradise!
No one's gonna stop you if you do it the right way! Earn your keep and your riches by following God's Laws! No one will be able to disturb you. Not a nose hair of yours will be plucked by anyone IF you are as clean as a whistle, so to speak!
The problem is that corruption still reigns supreme in our Malaysia Boleh! Honest dealings get stonewalled by those in the higher upper positions who whilst being still alive here on Earth have been entrusted with the Office to say 'Yes!' or 'No!'.
Usually , their 'Yes' comes with strings attached and the usual ' You scratch my back ; I'll scratch your's!' condition. This is the very cancer that is eating out our country from within!
I should know! One of my programs is stuck in limbo because the Chairman of one government body has done so. I leave him to Allah! He is the Chairman above all other Chairmans!
Insya Allah, this particular bloody Chairman will face Him, the Supreme Judge above all Judges in the Yaum al Mahsyar! Insya Allah!
Till then, it's back to square one for me. Got to keep on trying to seek my honest living! God Willing! I will.
Going back to the topic, I ask all those who are so fired up with the latest happenings and engaging in race based , ethnocentric hatred and inciting social unrest, to stop and think for a second : ' What if my country goes up in flames? What if I am the one responsible to spark off that vicious, volatile, bloodshedding of a riot that can destroy this land, this only place we can all call our motherland?'
Think and reflect on that! May peace and rational commonsense reign in our hearts and souls!
May Allah the Almighty show us all the way to peace and harmony for all in this nation we call 'Malaysia'!
God bless us all. Ameen, Ya Rabbal Alameen.

In a sense, I was thinking that after all, Abdullah Badawi's UMNO led BN Government had more integrity of not hiding anymore under its phalanx of 'toe the line' press and media!
I was impressed and felt happy that at last our country is getting out of the 'political haze' that has gripped this nation for so long!
I didn't have to go trouble myself , travelling to the PWTC and seeing the delegates deliver their speeches and having to suffer being caught in the jostling crowds of people in the PWTC for Astro's Channel 94 was doing a splendid job of delivering the gist of the UMNO General Assembly beamed through satellite tv straight into the comfort of our living rooms and homes!
Now, I hear Najib Tun Razak, saying that there are more negative repercussions from broadcasting live the going on's of the UMNO General Assembly and that there should not be anymore such live telecasts in the future!
Whom did he ask ? If it is the UMNO Supreme Council members who feared that their performances weren't up to mark and that the way some delegates from UMNO itself took to task the Ministers concerned and the way a Wanita UMNO Johor lambasted the wife of Datuk Effendi Nawawi, Datin Tiara Jacquelina for the obscene manner of dressing that the latter goes about in, not suitable for a Cabinet Minister's way of appearance and embarrassing the Wanita UMNO folks, then it simply goes to show that UMNO wants all its weaknesses to be covered up and hidden from the public view!
If because the way some of the delegates showed that they have it in them to castigate the leaders of UMNO live on satellite television, then UMNO decides not to have its leaders grilled so, then it simply goes on to show that UMNO has many loopholes to cover and has lots of damage control to be done!
Najib Tun Razak is in line to lead this nation if and when Abdullah Badawi resigns from the Prime Minister's post or dies in office!
If this is what we can expect from him when he runs this country, then the carpets of Putrajaya are going to swell with many more scandals and corruption cases being swept under them when he takes over!
Why do I say so? Well, the answer is so obvious isn't it?
Even a simple thing as the recent UMNO General Assembly being telecast live seems to be poking the UMNO leadership in their backsides now ; whatmore when he leads the team after Abdullah Badawi?
All these while, UMNO has been having it easy when the media has been playing along to their whims and fancies and only showcasing the plus side of things to the nation's view.
Media editing can twist and turn anything to portray a certain image to let the people think and view any given party as their saviours and those who are righteous.
I still remember how PAS was demonised by the BN controlled RTM and TV3 stations.
The Memali incident remains fresh in my mind when RTM through selective editing and kept being broadcasted over and over again and again, portraying PAS and its members as suicidal maniacs , hellbent in killing themselves and others.
The Police were caught in between these vile manipulations of the government controlled media and till this day and forever will remain as such until and unless the press and media are liberated from the shackles and clamping down on their management by the powers that be!
UMNO experimented with the live telecast by Astro's Channel 94 in their General Assembly last week and found out that it is not to their advantage!
Najib and Abdullah Badawi found out that their delegates can be as religiously passionate as their number 1 enemies in PAS!
It must have given both of them a severe case of the shrinking of their manly attributes seeing how some delegates recited the Quranic verses and seemed to morph into PAS like 'Ustaz's and 'Ustazah's taking to task some of their ministers and associates such as Sisters in Islam through Abdullah Badawi's daughter Nori who is a member of the SIS, and the way Effendi Nawawi's wife was skewered and roasted live before the entire nation over her dressing styles and behaviour, plus one delegate's call for UMNO and PAS to merge!
That was the ultimate scariest moment for them I think! They would definitely rather die than to go hug Datuk Hj Hadi and have him sit besides them in the UMNO Supreme Council, wouldn't they?
Imagine Nik Aziz being there besides Rafidah Aziz and Sharizat Jalil with their mop heads sticking out in contrast with his 'serban' and goatee! Hahahahahaha! That would be the day!
So, ladies and gentlemen, dear fellow citizens! Looks like, it's back to square one!
Live telecasts will no more be the thing for UMNO! You will from now on be fed selective 'made for TV' excerpts that will portray our glorified leaders in all their pomp and pageantry!
You will be spared the agony of having to experience live the straight talks, the salvo from the delegates to the Council de Supremo, the Creme de la Creme, the Elite above all the elites of our majestic society and the buffoonery that has all this while escaped us but allowed to slip through last General Assembly, tch tch tch!!!
Those of you who have had the opportunity to buy the VCD's of the delegates speeches ,sold at the PWTC, hold on to them strongly for they are now priceless!
No more will Malaysians get to experience a similar 'live from the PWTC' the United Malays National Organisation's General Assembly!
So, just keep those memories alive in your hearts for the UMNO Chifusans have had an aversion to the freedom of the press and prefer to stick their heads back into the sand ..or in this case ..the coconut shell ...and feed you titbits as they please !!!
Live telecasts!...Rest in peace! In Loving Memory...Astro's Channel 94...Hmmmm......
Subhanallah for the wonderful rays of the sun giving us warmth and the energy of Vitamin D refreshing us and our souls once again with the tropical splendour our nation is known for!
Masya Allah! Ya Rahman for giving us back our clear blue skies that had been hazy due to the irresponsible acts of our neighbouring countries slashing and burning their hills and forests causing us to choke and suffer
all these months! Thank you Allah!
Now, the kids can enjoy themselves in the pool with the sunny skies brightening up our lifes once again!
Thank you Allah! We are so grateful! Ameen ya Rabbal Alameen.
It's so good to feel the warmth of the sun and to see the skies once again so clear!
As the lyrics of a popular song goes with a bit of editing :
' I can see clearly now the 'haze' has gone! I can see all obstacles in my way.....sun shiny day! :D Gonna be a bright..bright..bright sun shiny day!...
Forgot some of the lines but you get my point! Alhamdulillah! Syukur Alhamdulillah!
Mastika, a Malay version of the Readers Digest in it's coming December edition, exposes the dilemna of this nation's Malay youth who have lost their bearings and after engaging in sin brought about by a couldn't care less lifestyle, find theirselves all screwed up and burdened by fruits of their sinful labor!
The record books and statistics of the authorities show a staggering figure of more than 68,000 bastards born to the youths of the Malay community in the year 2005!
The Malaysian Muslim Women Consultative Council @ Majlis Perunding Wanita Islam Malaysia compiled the statistics and published the staggering statistics on 19th April 2006 to the nation!
68,000 illegitimate @ bastards born to Malays in 2005! This is quite a shocker to us all!
At 6.00am, 10th March, 2006, a baby girl about a week old, was found abandoned at the Masjid Tangga Batu Pekan, Tanjong Kling, Melaka. The infant was clad in a blanket and placed in a basket together with some disposable baby diapers, a milk bottle and placed on a baby mattress!
At 11.30am, 25th April, 2006, residents at an apartment block in Taman Bukit Jambul were shocked to discover a newborn baby boy covered in blood with his navelcord still attached, dumped still alive in a garbage bin! The baby was lucky to not have been devoured by stray dogs or entombed alive by the garbage collection workers who might not have realised his presence!
At 10.00 pm, on the 15th of July, 2006, another newborn baby was dumped alive into the toilet bowl of a grocery shop at Masjid Tanah, Melaka! The poor baby was dumped and abandoned for nine hours sniffing the stench of human faeces for that long and miraculously was found gasping for breath and still alive!
Excerpt from : Mastika December 2006 issue.
Conceived in a bout of carnal lust and pleasure but after being carried for several months in it's mother's womb, gets delivered and dumped in of all places, the toilet bowl of a public lavatory!
Imagine the trauma of that baby when it grow up, as an illegitimate person and gets to learn of the disgusting, repulsive manner that he or she was abandoned by his or her natural mother! What emotional tempests and storms would rage in that person if he or she learns of their origin? Will anyone forgive such ruthless, foul adulterous parents for their sins?
When their young unmarried mothers surrended their purity to their irresponsible 'father's, sin and blessings were furthest in their minds when they let themselves be violated and they themselves enjoyed carnal pleasure out of wedlock and resulted in such unwanted pregnancies and the end result of such illegitimate offspring being thrown into our nation's dumpsters or just abandoned after birth!
Malaysia's Muslims are going through the worst times of their lifes. Social problems, sex related crimes, incest, rapes, molestations, drug abuses, liberal thinkings, free thinkers, apostasy, crime is all on the way up!
People dressed up as holy moly tend to be caught now and then committing the most foul crimes that usually centre on lust and sexually related transgressions! What more, those who don't even give a damn about the principles of faith and the guidelines of social traditions and Eastern values?
The more 'learned' the people are, the more 'weird' they become and they are recalcitrant to the stage that they dare challenge the Mufti's , challenge anyone who tries to advice them or bring them back to the teachings of the Holy Qur'an and the Sunnah of the Rasul Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam!
There are also those who go get involved in all kinds of false teachings out of their ignorance and become weirdos in the truest sense and get taken for a ride by their Tariqat 'Master's' and their 'fly by night' Shaikhs!
All these is the fruit of apathy! Malaysians simply have forgotten our time honoured traditions of looking out for one another, irrespective of creed or ethnicity!
Back in the 50s and 60s, neighbours looked out after one another regardless of their race or religion!
Anyone who wanted to do anything bad was very conscious of prying eyes, 'nosey parker's, and the village network of eyes and ears and anyone can reprimand any other person's child without fear of the parents coming around to wage a quarrel as to why so and so admonished their wayward offsprings?
The result is stinking at us in our nation's dumpsters and garbage bins! The Malays of Malaysia need your help!
The youth and the young people of this nation needs your stopping them from destroying themselves and this nation from going to the dogs!
Islam is a faith that when properly practiced has never failed to nip such social rot in the bud! How do we do it?
By following exactly as Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala commands us in the Qur'an and follow the example of the Prophet Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam!
Be moderate in practicing Islam and be wise in administering the rules and regulations of our faith. Do not be harsh upon those who are misled. Invite them back to the fold by using hikmah @ wisdom and refrain from going overboard in anything!
If possible, join a volunteer corps mission such as ABIM, JIM , PERKIM, MACMA and others.
Learn how to do dakwah to them and be approachable and do approach the lost youth of Malaysia. They need you as much as you need them.
Just remember that Allah SWT loves those who do help others especially when they are at their most vulnerable age @ teens and early adulthood. Never abuse the trust that the young people place on us and always seek to improve and add to your knowledge! It helps! A lot!
May Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala always guide us in our mission to save and help our youths!
Ameen ya Rabbal Alameen!

Talk about Malaysia Boleh! Malaysians can really root for the ruling party can't they?
It's so bloody preposterous that I can't believe what's taking place in this country where families have to watch their homes and belongings get destroyed and they have to watch it all go to waste in the pouring rain whilst their Majesties await their brand new palace get constructed on a majestic sprawling hilltop area by a two bit company with more cable connections than the infamous Klang ex councillor Datuk 'Gucci Sunglasses' Zakaria Mat Deros! It sure pays to be close to the 'pemimpin', doesn't it?
Maya Maju Sdn Bhd is the company's name and getting fat contracts like these seems to be its game! Does the name Maya come to mind? Alam ..maya..:P
Fellow Blogger The Malaysian tells it all in his post here as to how the MPAJ demolished 51 poor villagers homes last Friday!
Well folks, as those poor villagers hve been left homeless and their lifes destroyed, our Cemerlang, Gemilang, Terbilang flying high rulers and 'pemimpin' live such a luxurious life in all comfort and opulence whilst the 'rakyat miskin' in Selangor , are worse off than the refugees in Darfur!
Lest we forget, don't forget to cross on the scales in your ballot come 2008! We'll get to hear more stories like these till Kingdom come! Yayyy! Malaysia Boleh!..Lingkop kalau terus begini!
Those of you who watched the proceedings of last
week's UMNO General Assembly telecast live over
Astro's Channel 94 must have felt the same way I
did when I nearly threw up over the way some of the delegates went overboard
with praising the UMNO President with their unabashed accolades which is
contrary to the Sunnah of the Prophet (SAW)
In Sahih Al Bukhari, Book of Al-Adab (Good Manners), Chapter 21.
Hadith 2033, Page 959: Narrated Abu Bakra (Radhiallahu Anhu):
A man was mentioned before the Prophet Muhammad (SAW) and another man
present, praised him (the one being mentioned) greatly!
The Prophet Muhammad Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam said,
"May Allah's Mercy be upon you! You have cut the neck of your friend!"
The Prophet Muhammad Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam repeated this sentence many
times and then said,"If it is indispensable for anyone of you to praise someone,
then he should say ' I think that he is so and so, ' if he really thinks that he
( the person being praised) is such. Allah is The One Who will take into his
accounts (as He Knows the Reality- regarding the one being praised) and
none can sanctify anybody before Allah SWT!"
Sadaqa Rasulullah (SAW)
The lessons from the hadith above teaches us not to go overboard in praising
someone ,especially so when that someone is present.
He or she will get bigheaded and swell with pride, thus endangering him or
herself to the sin of 'Ri'ya' @ Self Adulation! Narcissistic as someone labelled me
the other day! Na'uzubillah!
Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala knows me best. I am nothing but a speck of dust
before all the others who are so much more exalted in their iman and amals.
So,please, spare me your curses, praises and your labels! I don't need them.
Back to the subject at hand.
It is an unhealthy trend for the ones trying to impress Prime Minister Abdullah
Haji Ahmad Badawi in sucking up to the man by going overboard in adulating
him and bending over backwards in kissing his hands, to show the PM that he
is so great, so magnificient, so special, so extraordinary and super this and that,
that they unknowingly (or knowingly) have caused great harm to Abdullah Badawi
that he is in danger of forgetting his roots.
Abdullah Badawi is in danger of becoming someone whom he himself would not
want to be that is a man who would be arrogant, dictatorial, and someone who
would think that he can do anything and get away with it.
I myself get criticised by those who see me getting too comfortable with my
'narcissistic tendencies' hence they sort of give me the 'wake up call' before I
lose sight of my objectives. I welcome such reprimands but I don't have to share
such comments with all. I keep them to myself. They are meant to be as a form
of personal guidelines. Alhamdulillah.
Abdullah Badawi on the other hand needs to be alert and aware of turning into
the very person whom he doesn't want to be in the first place.
A dictator worth the label.
For someone who is seen to be a softie and compassionate in heart, these
'ball carriers' in UMNO and in the ruling government are a potential virus that
can and will corrupt his heart and his soul to be so enamoured with praise and
self adulation, that he can end up being worse than his predecessor!
A leader of this multi racial, multi religious, country that is Malaysia, must
always shy away from such over adulation and keep it in his heart that he is
just a simple humanbeing!
Abdullah Badawi needs to constantly reflect on all the great leaders of mankind
who lived before him and who ruled over greater empires of civilisation, so much
more greater than this small nation that we have.
What happened to them? Where is Caesar ? Where is Alexander the Great?
Where is Genghiz Khan? Where is the Shah of Iran? Mao Tse Tung, etcetera?
What happened to all the Emperors and Kings of old? Where are they now today?
Gone. Dead and buried. Earth to earth. Dust to dust! Returned to the Creator as
we all will be!
The only thing remaining is their history. Their deeds and their accomplishments.
Their conquests and their mistakes. Their legacy for mankind. To learn from their
successes and also their losses.
Pride and vanity will only bring about the downfall of any leader. Too much
adulation from those who have vested interests will only lead to an early doom.
A downfall that will obliterate any good that he or she has done. This unhealthy
culture of 'fanning' one's pride and ego has to be nipped in the bud!
When Mukhriz the son of the former premier Mahathir expressed his viewpoints
that Abdullah Badawi spoke of nothing new in his address, the man was being
He, being, the seed of his father, Mahathir Mohamad, was just being himself, in
stating the facts that to him, Abdullah Badawi has not spoken of anything new,
anything out of the norm, that can make him get all excited and abuzz with
expectations of achieving a new frontier, a new vision and mission, as his father
has done for this nation.
He is today, being hounded, by all the PM's adulaters and being pushed into a
corner, being threatened with dismissal from his post as an Executive Member of
UMNO Youth for he so dared to speak his mind!
This is what our nation's ruling government has become!
It has become like the UN, nothing but a rubberstamp to the dictates of the
superpowers such as the USA and the UK plus their European Union.
Malaysia is in grave danger of being led to anarchy if we, the citizens just keep
our mouth shut and do not remind these corrupt souls up there in the government
to return to the basics.
Observe and practice governance over us according to the Qur'an and Sunnah of
the Rasul SAW.
Mere rhetoric of Islam Hadhari this and that which is an innovative form of saying
that they know better than the Prophet of Allah Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam and
that Abdullah Ahmad Badawi is a latter day Muslim saint is only going to destroy
his sincerity if he ever was when he took office to turn into a vicious self
adulating person who holds power over us, the citizens of this nation.
The UMNO politicians also need to refrain from being swept into the pitfalls of
racial bigotry by threatening to destroy other ethnicities just because a few
rotten heads and hearts amongst the latter day Chinese and Indians fail to
realise that all of us have the rights to co-exist in peace, harmony and mutual
respect with one another.
The DAP and other Opposition parties would do well to exercise restraint and
proper usage of words to highlight to the ruling government as to where they are
Name calling and shouting like uncivilised people in Parliament has not advanced
their causes so far! When one sheds any inhibition of behaving appropriately as
members of a hallowed institution such as the House of Parliament, the highest
legal assembly of this nation's leaders, then what is the point of all those
honorifics being put before one's names...such as the 'Yang Amat Berhormat' @
'The Most Respected', ; 'Yang Berhormat' @ 'Respected' and so on and so forth?
We, the citizens are grateful to be able to see the live telecast of the UMNO
General Assembly this year! We have been able to see and hear how the UMNO
delegates really were. We also got to see the way our nation's ruling ministers
spoke and behaved.
UMNO needs to expose itself as to what it really is by having more such live
telecasts. By doing so, the citizens will be able to gauge the calibre of the
persons who have been elected by them in the first place and whether we should
vote for them again or vote in fresh, more rational, more sincere personalities
who do what they are supposed to do than to go overly praise the PM and kiss
his hands so that they get to impress him and to go get into the PM's good books!
We also need to be given the opportunity to watch live telecasts of the
Opposition parties General Assemblies, so that we can evaluate how those folks
are in the real sense.
Too much censorship will only mislead the voting citizen to cast their votes for
the 'made for TV, edited versions that do not show us the real deal with the
ruling government or the Opposition.
Lastly, we are no longer restricted to one source of information as the days of
yore! With the advent of the internet and telecommunications, we have before us
alternative sources of info from non government radio and television services.
Sooner or later, whatever truth that has been withheld from us will surface in the
most unexpected,most unthought of places, so, please be truthful before God
and rule over us with wisdom.
Speak sincerely as befitting your roles as representatives of the people of
Malaysia, failing which, you can kiss that seat of power 'goodbye' in the next
To the Prime Minister of Malaysia, I ask that you just remember that the trust of
the people is upon you!
You need to rule over us as what Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala and the Rasul
Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam have entrusted you with.
Be kind to us and show us your understanding and compassion.
Remember, we have nowhere else to go but live and die here as rightful citizens
Malays, Chinese, Indians, Sikhs, Orang Asli's, Sabahans, Sarawakians and all
other ethnicities who are at the mercy of those of you who call the shots here
In the Yaum al Akhirat, even you and all the ruling folks in government will be at
the Mercy of Allah!
So, remember, do not listen to all those 'budaya ampu mengampu' that will lead
to your and our ruin!
May Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala guide those of you in government and us the
