Dear brothers and sisters, Ikhwanul Muslimin na wal Muslimat,
The widespreading of ignorance amongst the masses today with regard to the do's and don'ts of our Islamic faith is actually quite worrying.
Practically, not a day goes by without some poor soul getting into hot soup for the silliest of reasons and when asked as to why they did that, the usual reply one hears nowadays is that they didn't know that it is wrong to do this and that?
Society today is much more enamored with wanting to know what this politician said or swore that he or she is telling nothing but the truth or whatever he or she had imagined the truth to be so?
Politics, social issues and matters that concern the safety and well being of this nation and its citizens make up the bulk of this nation's worries and most of the time justice takes a flying leap into the nearest body of water or whatever polluted balance of a devastated environment we still have left?
Don't even start with religious issues. There's a whole cess pit of miscreants and screwups at large polluting and confusing the many altered minds we have roaming the streets and roads of this befuddled nation that we call as our home.
Sad to say, most of our fellow citizens are being besieged by a torrent of moronus ignoramus. A wave of couldn't carelessness that seems to affect most of them who find themselves running foul of not only the law and societal values but most worryingly, these state of being clueless about the most basic of one's station in life and not even bothering to put themselves right despite being reminded about it every now and then?
In Surah Al Baqarah, Chapter 2 Verses 1 and 2, Allah reveals :
2. This is the Book;
In it is guidance sure, without doubt,
To those who fear God;
This is the blessed noble Holy Qur'an which is preserved in its original form of revelations to us without a single jot or word missing. It was revealed in Arabic and remains pure and absolute despite the passage of time since the passing of the blessed messenger a thousand four hundred over years ago.
Mankind today have before them the best of modern communications technology which can be best utilized to study and carry out research as to our origins, our current situations and our destinies.
Despite all these modern advancements in the field of science and technology, there remains a basic and most important need for Mankind to attain and achieve a spiritual balance to ensure a healthy state of living.
One really needs to strive his or her level best to keep oneself well in both aspects of achieving a healthy body and soul.
With regard to the latest developments relating to the issue of the Catholic Church of Malaysia's demand that they be allowed to use the term 'Allah' in lieu of the Malay word 'Tuhan' to describe the triune deities that they worship which is the Trinity of 'The Father, The Son and The Holy Ghost, one needs to study in depth the implications of allowing such a blasphemy upon the nation's Muslim community.
To me as a Muslim, I feel offended to learn that there are kaffirs out there who do not actually worship Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala but make blasphemous claims that what they worship is the same Allah that we Muslims pray to?
To me that's a total lie and even Christians who live in the West object to the call of certain Catholic Church officials to change the usual reference to the 'God' they have been worshiping to 'Allah'.
For any Muslim to stay complacent and accepting such a blasphemous claim by the Catholic Church of Malaysia, he or she is liable to be charged with having committed Shirik Al Akbar, a major sin that Allah the Almighty swears He will never forgive!
6. Inna allatheena kafaroo sawaon AAalayhim aanthartahum am lam tunthirhum la yu/minoona
6. As to those who reject Faith, It is the same to them, Whether thou warn them Or do not warn them; They will not believe.
7. Khatama Allahu AAala quloobihim waAAala samAAihim waAAala absarihim ghishawatun walahum AAathabun AAatheemun
7. Allah hath set a seal On their hearts and on their hearing, And on their eyes is a veil;
Great is the penalty they (incur).
Truthful indeed is Allah the Most Powerful.
Have you not come across those who hail from families that are known for their lineage and supposedly noble heritage only to see their actions mirror the nefarious ones amongst the Disbelievers?
They shameless parade themselves in the society pages of gossip magazines and pout for the camera in order to present their social standing and class before the masses. Little do they realize that all such excesses will return to haunt them when they have no choice but to stand before The Maker Himself?
The irony is that even the offspring of the not so well to do uninhibitedly grace the You Tubes and online forums exposing their infidelity before Ar Rahman and throw themselves and the remnants of their honor and reputation before the global audience.
What can we say except offer them our sincere condolences for destroying whatever little honor they had left?
