Why is it that despite the abundance of information flooding our lives, there are still 'Muslims in Name Only' dying for the wrong reasons?
How come these tragedies continue to take place in the lives of so many who claim to be Muslims even though the universities and colleges of this country churn out so many learned scholars, each bristling with scrolls and degrees stashed in almost every orifice of their pretentious stuck up selfs?
Damned be all those who label themselves as 'ulamaks' and boast of their religious understandings and immense knowledge when they have failed!!!
They have so failed to go into our society and raise the awareness amongst the ignorant ones in the Muslim community as to what our faith of Islam really is and what it is not!
The blood of those who died at the Sri Sarawak Flats off Jalan San Peng, here in Kuala Lumpur is on the hands of each Muslim scholar and religious authority who have neglected them in their times of need!
I blame all those who have and hold power over the life's of each and every Muslim, male and female, young and old, in this country to be held responsible over their deaths!
I say that those who lay claim to be the Keepers of the Faith of Islam in this country are to be equally held responsible over these unfortunate deaths.
Narrated Ma`qil bin Yasar Radhiallahu Anhu :
"Any man whom Allah has given authority of ruling some people and he does not look after them in an honest manner, will never have even the smell of Paradise."
Chapter 3. Book of Al Ahkam (Judgements). Hadith # 2201. Page 1024. Sahih Al Bukhari.
Ma`qil bin Yasar Radhiallahu Anhu also narrated that Allah's Messenger Muhammad Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam also said : "If any ruler having the authority to rule Muslim subjects dies while he is deceiving them, Allah will forbid Paradise for him."
Chapter 3. Book of Al Ahkam (Judgements). Hadith # 2202. Page 1025. Sahih Al Bukhari.
Is there anything in the above authentic hadiths of the Prophet Muhammad Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam that all those people whom are being addressed by Rasulullah Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam do not understand?
What other calamity should befall the Muslims before any of these irresponsible people in authority start taking action to stop the rot in our going crazy society?
Dear brothers and sisters,
Apathy by those in power over the fate of the Muslims of today will only cause many more folks who are clueless about the do's and don'ts in our faith fall prey to more and more devious devils in disguise amongst us.
Can we still afford to just mind our own business and let our fellow Muslims be amongst those who shall be considered as the 'Modern Day Jahilliyyahs'?
Many tribes and people have perished before us and so will we!
Now, how would we like to be remembered, eh?
Would we like to be remembered as those who idly stood by and let our fellow Muslims die in vain out of our fear of attracting the wrong kind of attention from the unscrupulous ones in authority or will we step up to the Standing Order of Almighty Allah Azza Wa Jalla that is revealed in the Surah An Nahl Verse 125 Chapter 16 in the Holy Al Qur'an Al Kareem :
125. OdAAu ila sabeeli rabbika bialhikmati waalmawAAithati alhasanati wajadilhum biallatee hiya ahsanu inna rabbaka huwa aAAlamu biman dalla AAan sabeelihi wahuwa aAAlamu bialmuhtadeena
125. Invite (all) to the Way of thy Lord with wisdom and beautiful preaching; and argue with them in ways that are best and most gracious: for thy Lord knoweth best, who have strayed from His Path, and who receive guidance.
How many of us may I ask have really given any serious consideration to these Words of Almighty Allah that has been revealed for all mankind to adhere to and submit to with all their life and soul?
Can we afford to be deaf, dumb and blind to the silent cries of those who are yearning for knowledge and salvation both for themselves and their beloved ones?
How many more must die before anyone in power and authority stand up and take corrective action to stop these senseless murders?
May Allah have mercy upon us for our lack of courage or initiative to stir those amongst us who have it in them to do what's right and stop what's wrong?
I ask that those who aren't Muslims to please not comment on this subject as I am addressing my fellow Muslims especially those who are holding authority over us in this matter.
I thank you for your kind compliance with this simple and clear request.
