In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.
From Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala's standing order to those of us who are Muslims to 'invite all mankind to His Way with wisdom and beautiful preaching and to argue or reason with the Kaffirs @ Disbelievers in ways that are best and most gracious, for He knows best as to who amongst us keep faith in Him and as to who has gone astray?
Surah An Nahl, Chapter 16 Verse 125, in the Holy Al Quranul Karim.
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.
Sadaqallah hal Adzhim. Truthful indeed is Allah the Most Powerful.
An order so crystal clear that only those who have befuddled minds and diseased hearts will choose to ignore and cause those who obey Allah to the letter as per the above commandment unnecessary harm and mischief if not impose upon them harm and ridicule!
Thus has become the fate of one Muslim by the name of Dr.Mohd. Asri bin Zainul Abidin, the former Mufti of the State of Perlis, here in this country.
What was his crime?
Preaching to the masses. Something that is ordained and commanded upon him as a scholar of Islam by none other than The Almighty Lord and Supreme Master of us all as per the Surah An Nahl which I have reproduced above.
For the Islamic Religious Department of Selangor to arrest the preacher and charge him for teaching without authorization from their department is simply an outrageous and illogical if not preposterous thing to do!
Who are they to go against the Commandments of Almighty Allah?
I find it most unbecoming for a so called religious department to cause so much heartache and unnecessary provocations against a young outstanding Muslim scholar such as the often celebrated ex-Perlis Mufti!
All I can say is that it is proven to be true as per what Rasul Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam prophesied that in the Last Days, the singers and performers will be adulated and celebrated whilst the religious scholars will be hounded and offended by those who abuse the trust placed upon them to rule over the people justly.
As a fellow Muslim and one who has sworn to call others to Al Islam, I will not rest till justice is upheld and the victimized scholar of Islam, Dr.Mohd Asri bin Zainul Abidin is vindicated and his honor upheld.
If the so called justice system perverts the trust we the people have in them and causes harm to the young scholar, rest assured that it will not be long for Allah's Wrath to descend upon them!
The so called Leaders and Keepers of the Faith have done nothing to defend or champion Al Islam in this country and thus have lost their right to claim such honorifics in the first place, so help me God!
As far as I am concerned, they have betrayed the Muslims and by remaining silent about this injustice against so good a man, they have earned their place in the hereafter as those who have turned their backs upon the ummah.
