Lee Kuan Eeew!!! Singaporeans are going crazy man! Whatcha gonna do about it?

Harry Lee Kuan Yew is in the news again. For the wrong reasons as usual.


This time around the Singapore founding former Premier who still holds quite an influence upon the small island republic south of Johor is in hot soup for calling upon the Malays in his dominion to be less Islamic and go 'loose' or to ease up from following their Islamic principles in order for them to be integrated into his idea of a unified, liberal Singapore!


Lee Kuan Yew is an old maestro in playing to the gallery in his heydays and the wily old ironfisted Singapore Minister Mentor is famous for the way he captured the hearts and minds of the Singapore Malays back then when he led the PAP to total victory and formed the republic!

Would you be able to see Singapore Minister Mentor Harry Lee Kuan Yew ever consenting to adorning a Malay songkok again today?

Not a fat chance in hell!

Why?

Well, because he doesn't have to pretend or kiss up to the Singaporean Malays anymore.

He's the Patriarch of the Lee Dynasty down under south of the Malayan Peninsular.

He is the undeclared 'Untouchable King or Emperor' of his small island republic.

Whatever he says goes!

Now, we read about Lee Kuan Yew asking the Muslims of Singapore, namely the Malays to not be so religious and to be more liberal in their lifestyles.

One Malay Singaporean has shown his middle finger here to ol' Harry Lee Kuan Yew's call!

To understand where he is going with this call, one has to reflect and recall the strong ties that Malays both in Malaysia and Singapore have with the Islamic faith.

Like flesh and skin, the inherited Malay cultural values and Islamic principles go hand in hand to portray and identify the Malaysian and Singaporean Malay Muslims being as an overall conservative and quite religious people.

Although we differ in social and cultural habits or norms in several ways, the unifying ties between us will always be our Islamic faith.

Lee Kuan Yew claims that Muslims are the hardest to be integrated into his republic's liberal lifestyle because they hold firm to the dictates of the Islamic Faith.

In a sense, Singapore's Muslims must count this statement by Lee Kuan Yew as an attested proof that Muslims will not be swayed by the materialistic pursuit that has devastated many of this world's customs and inherited ways of the various civilizations that were once heralded as the epitome of human achievements which fell prey to the lustful wanton society of today due to their giving in to calls such as these?

Without religion, mankind will be reduced to a heartless, uncaring cesspit of carnal desires and debauchery. 

Singapore is already living proof of such a society where materialism reigns supreme and faith is being fast abandoned by a godless mass of dollar worshipers who put the 5C's above anything else save for the Malay Muslims who continue to hold firm to the Rope of Allah and the Example of the Blessed and Noble Messenger of Allah.

Most Singaporeans especially their Chinese are bloody self centred or 'Kiasu' as the Chinese Hokkien saying goes meaning 'Afraid to lose' syndrome. 

Here's a classic example showing a Singaporean try and pump in as much cheap Malaysian petrol into his car as possible at Johor Bahru petrol station!





In a society that puts itself before others because of the fast disappearing sense of religiousness in its members, this is the end result :





Quarrelsome, rude, arrogant, godless persons who live a life devoid of care, kindness or compassion. Its a Dog eat Dog world that Lee Kuan Yew has succeeded in creating.


Quarreling over parking lots








On the SBS buses





Racist and vulgar Chinese woman aboard the MRT train 





Another loose screw on board ~ as usual its another Kiasu Singapore elderly Chinese wacko





What the hell is going wrong with the Singaporean Chinese elderly women? Frustrated spinsters or damn crazy?


The Indians however choose to showcase their Kollywood talents onboard the trains instead! Hahahahahaha








There are even a growing number of Singaporeans going butt naked crazy in Singapore! Hello Lee Kuan Yew! What gives?


All the chasing of money, money, money driving your citizens stir crazy, aa?


A world that puts the dollar above everything else. Lee Kuan Yew suppresses the Singaporeans in all areas. He bankrupts every Opposition figure who dares to take him on.


He drove JB Jeyaretnam bankrupt and the man died heartbroken.  


Lee Kuan Yew might have succeeded in turning Singapore into a modern economy but as far as human rights are concerned, he was very iron fisted and whacked the media into submission to his iron will and turned Singapore into his own personal dynasty. Modern, successful but faithless and kiasu kings and queens. Heartless, cruel and uncaring. Its all a 'me, me, me!' mindset!


Watch this video to learn more :





Its rebels are quickly canned and sent packing to the prisons.





Paradise and Hell combined.


Lee Kuan Yew has succeeded in doing just that.


He is responsible for driving most Singaporeans nuts and now he wants the Singapore Malays to go slack on their religion.


Its the only thing that is keeping most Singaporean Malay Muslims sane and get to remain above the fray that is driving Singaporeans into becoming tripwires all over the island republic!


Hello Harry Lee! You're already at the end curve of your life here on Earth. Why don't you do something good before you say bye bye to the Kiasu Republic of Singapore that you have created and go around on a be courteous campaign to your fellow republicans?


I don't know why most Singaporean Malays are just keeping their mouths quiet about this apparent attack on their faith and religious traditions?


Cat got their tongue?

    N5 Tenang By-Election ~ Guess who's on MC at the taxpayer's expense and yet out campaigning?

    Well, I just have to hand it to Blogger Marahku for this incriminating expose of the PAS candidate's husband who has pulled a fast one at the expense of the taxpayers in which he has fraudulently acquired medical leave for 21days but misused such leave to join his wife in the N5 Tenang by election campaign!


    Hello! This blatant cheating by one who is a teacher just blows to bit any ounce of righteousness by the man and throws out any semblance to good character and trustworthiness on the husband's part.


    Yeah, he's not the one standing for election but such an obvious breach of trust by him just destroys any sense of being impeccable in character for the man and his PAS candidate wife ex-teacher Normala Sudirman!


    Here he is seen campaigning with his wife when he is supposed to be sick and on medical leave!!!





    All photo credits belong to Blogger My Anger


    Guess that nowadays one has to be really careful as to whom to trust and if not for the in depth investigative work by Blogger Syamsul, we would all be in the dark about such criminal breach of trusts by those who are supposed to be role models for our Malaysian society?


    If they can hoodwink the Ministry of Education in something as important as an MC, can we trust these people in matters of national importance?


    Going on MC and getting paid when one is not really sick is tantamount to feeding on salaries that one has not truly earned and it becomes haram to the fraudster who in turn feeds his family or dependents with such ill gained income.


    To the voters of N5 Tenang, choose wisely as to whom you elect to represent you?


    Chances are that such folks might not turn up for duty if elected because as they say 'Practice makes perfect!' and these people are supposed to be teachers?


    Hope they don't teach their students this special art of going on fraudulent medical leave!



    This is just so disheartening! I'm truly disappointed!

    This is clearly a classic case of when alims become zalim!

    Understanding Basic Islamic Principles Course for Non Muslims ~ Part 1

    Assalamualaikum. Peace be upon you.


    Alhamdulillah! All praises be to Allah, our Lord and Supreme Master.


    I get to share more with you about the basic principles of Al Islam and why it is important for each and every one of us human beings to study the only faith from The Almighty God of us all and for those of you who have yet to become Muslim, I dedicate this series to be a guide for all mankind based on what I have come to learn for myself and am still learning while I am still alive.


    For today's session, I'd like to take you back to the stage in Time when our Parents, Sayyidina Adam Alaihis Salam and Sayyidatina Hawwa Radhiallahu Anha went against the prohibition of Almighty Allah to not eat of the forbidden fruit when they were in Paradise.


    You see, being Muslims, we believe in the unseen realm that is there but we just can't see it but have faith in it. Just like the matter of our living, breathing soul. Our life force if you wish to call it so?


    It is our living soul within our mortal self that keeps us alive. Once our soul @ Ruuh is taken out from our body, we cease to live in this mortal world. 


    No matter how much we wish to remain alive, once our time is up, there is no one who can prolong our existence here on Earth save for Almighty Allah!


    The doctors and surgeons will throw up their hands and say that they have done their best and it is all up to God now as to prolong our life here in this world or depart to the next?


    Whatever we as human beings come to believe in the Unseen God is born of firm unshakable faith that God Almighty is Ever Present and it is He Who created us all and all those who lived before us in times gone by and the myriad of creation and creatures that have come to be and perished, swallowed in Time but they have left their mark in this Mother Earth and in the hearts and minds of those who choose to reflect, recall and remember.


    For those of us who choose to study our Islamic Faith, it is incumbent upon us to attain the necessary bedrock of faith that is grounded in a solid state of belief in Allah and His Final Messenger.


    All those historical events that took place in years and ages gone by are revealed for us by The Almighty Who chose to share it with us through His Greatest Messenger Muhammad Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam, Rahmatulil Alamin.


    Allah's Mercy to the entire universes.


    All these information that I'm sharing with you can only be fathomed and understood by those of you who have a certain level of the faculty of rational thought and logical reasoning based upon an awareness of Life and the various degrees of comprehension and skill of contemplation.


    I know that I promised to keep my sharing here as simple as possible but in certain matters such as this turning point that caused Adam Alaihis Salam and Hawwa Radhiallahu Anha to be evicted from the Heavens is something that only those capable of envisioning the existence of the spiritual realm and various other dimensions of being can come to understand and appreciate just what I am sharing here with you, my respected readers.


    Islam can be as simple as ABC and also at the same time be as complex as the multitudes of interstellar galaxies that are found in outer space beyond our most vivid imaginations.


    Its really up to us as to how we choose to go about studying it?


    Muslims who are true to the Islamic Faith believe in Allah the Almighty firmly not just by blind faith only but by reason.


    We don't simply follow what our forefathers did but we study our faith and investigate as to the reasons why we have to do this or that in our Islamic way of life?


    There are many out there today who speak as if they know the answers to all that takes place before their very eyes but most often end up clueless about things when it involves spiritual matters and they dismiss it off as something paranormal.


    Hehehehe..run of the mill simple excuse.


    Islamic teachings however can be as simple as ABC or as complex as things can be?


    Right to the minutest details, scientists are now discovering the truth and accuracy of all that has been revealed in the Holy Al Quran a thousand four hundred thirty over years ago, when no one knew about atoms or cells, even the microscope wasn't invented then!

    For instance, in Surah Al Alaq, Chapter 96 Verse 1-2, the very first revelation of the Holy Al Quran teaches Man about our creation in our mother's womb. 

    بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

    96:1
    Transliteration
    Iqra/ bi-ismi rabbika allathee khalaq
    Sahih International
    Recite in the name of your Lord who created -

    96:2
    Transliteration
    Khalaqa al-insana min AAalaq
    Sahih International
    Created man from a clinging substance.

    In Surah Al Insan Chapter 76 Verse 1-2, Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala further teaches us about our coming into being.

    بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

    76:1
    Transliteration
    Hal ata AAala al-insani heenunmina addahri lam yakun shay-an mathkoora
    Sahih International
    Has there [not] come upon man a period of time when he was not a thing [even] mentioned?

    76:2
    Transliteration
    Inna khalaqna al-insanamin nutfatin amshajin nabtaleehi fajaAAalnahusameeAAan baseera
    Sahih International
    Indeed, We created man from a sperm-drop mixture that We may try him; and We made him hearing and seeing.
    In Surah Al Mu'minuun Chapter 23 Verse 12 -14 Allah teaches us further about Human Embryology :


    23:12
    Transliteration
    Walaqad khalaqna al-insana minsulalatin min teen
    Sahih International
    And certainly did We create man from an extract of clay.

    23:13
    Transliteration
    Thumma jaAAalnahu nutfatan feeqararin makeen
    Sahih International
    Then We placed him as a sperm-drop in a firm lodging.

    23:14
    Transliteration
    Thumma khalaqna annutfataAAalaqatan fakhalaqna alAAalaqata mudghatanfakhalaqna almudghata AAithamanfakasawna alAAithama lahmanthumma ansha/nahu khalqan akhara fatabarakaAllahu ahsanu alkhaliqeen
    Sahih International
    Then We made the sperm-drop into a clinging clot, and We made the clot into a lump [of flesh], and We made [from] the lump, bones, and We covered the bones with flesh; then We developed him into another creation. So blessed is Allah , the best of creators.

    You can watch many videos about the Quran and Embryology here.

    I can keep going on and on about how Islam teaches Mankind all that there is to know about our origins and how we who are the progeny of Adam Alaihis Salam are the inheritors of this Earth and that it is our responsibility to protect this world and all its creatures , environment and one another from harm and destruction. 

    Yet there are many amongst us who keep going the way of the devils by falling prey to our lusts and disastrous desires.

    Okay, let me start with sharing with you some basics of the Islamic faith. 


    Islam can be likened to an oak tree or any other large solid tree for the matter.


    We see the upper part of the tree which is above ground but deep below firmly entrenched into the earth is a whole system of wide network of roots which bore deep down and also spread all around the area in all directions!


    These roots hold up the large tree trunk and supports the huge weight of the tree and its branches. Those branches in turn support the leaves and bear the brunt of the fruits when they are in season.


    Islam is like the tree. The main trunk of faith for us Muslims is the Aqeedah. Aqeedah means Creed.


    It is the core essence of a Muslim's being. Just like the trunk of the tree. It has to be firm and healthy. If it is left to rot, chances are that the tree trunk will soon be corroded and rot away. The chances of it breaking apart or come crashing down will be more if such a situation should be allowed to take place?


    We must have our basic belief in Allah firmly secure and persevere in learning more and more about our faith with every passing moment of the remaining time we still have, living here upon this Earth.


    We have only this one chance to correct ourselves and strive to be a good, knowledgeable and practicing Muslim who is both kind and courteous to all whom we are privileged to live together with or meet.


    We can't afford to go astray and condemn ourselves to be amongst those headed towards the Hellfire! Truly that is not the wish of any sane human being?


    Let's not be amongst those who just put up an act of being holy moly in public yet be amongst the hypocrites in private! God Forbid! We know that there are a whole lot of those who are Muslim just in name amongst us.


    Same like a Muslim who doesn't have a strong sense of faith in the Almighty Allah. If he or she doesn't study his or her Islamic faith and put it to practice by having a firm belief in it, chances are that the individual will likely go astray like in the case of Lina Joy and Benjamin Stephen, both infamous local apostates who are now on the run from the authorities.


    Aqeedah @ Creed of Islam is a matter of faith. Belief. Dealing with the Faculty of Reason. Needs to be understood by having the ability to think and contemplate. You need to be able to process information using your brain and reason using logical and critical thinking.


    You must know what believing is about? You can't rubber stamp faith with just following blindly because you see others doing it, so you just follow blindly without asking or questioning?


    This is what makes Islam so appealing to those who have the intellectual capability to process information and to come to a logical decision about matters concerning the Principles of Islam and its bedrock of faith.


    There are mainly 6 important Principles of Faith that every true Muslim has to firmly believe, study and accept.


    If you have the slightest of doubts about any of these 6 Principles of Faith of Islam, your status as a Muslim becomes suspect and you might end up as a Disbeliever.


    God Forbid!


    What are these 6 Principles of Faith that I am talking about here?


    They are:

    1. Belief that there is Almighty Allah, God Most Supreme, Most Majestic, Most High Who has created the entire universes and all that there is!
    2. Belief in Allah's Malaikats @ Angels. Spiritual beings created by Allah the Almighty to oversee His Creations.
    3. Belief in all the 124,000 Prophets and Messengers that have been sent by Allah God Almighty to Mankind over the passage of Time immemorial.
    4. Belief in all the Holy Scriptures that were revealed and sent to the Prophets of Allah and were abrogated by the revelations of the Last and Final Testament of Allah @ The Blessed and Holy Al Quran to all Mankind through His Final Messenger and the Greatest Prophet of all, Muhammad ibni Abdullah, Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam.
    5. Belief in the Akhirat @ Hereafter when all those who have perished and died will be resurrected after the Doomsday and brought back to life to answer for their deeds. Day of Judgment. Yaum al Akhirat.
    6. Belief in the Qadha and Qadr. Fate. Destiny. Faith that everything takes place with the consent of Allah.
    Apart from these 6 Principles of Faith, there are another set of 5 Principles which every true Muslim must perform and carry out to qualify oneself to be regarded as a legitimate practicing Muslim.


    These 5 Principles of Islam are the bedrock of faith that if not practiced will render one's status as a Muslim null and void. Like operating without licence or permit! :)


    First and foremost, will be :

    1. Declaration of Faith in Allah and the Prophet Muhammad as Allah's (Final) Messenger

    " Asy hadu Allah ila ha ill lall Laah! Wa Ash hadu anna Muhammadar Rasulullah!"


    2. Praying the 5 Compulsory prayers @ solats daily.





    3. Fasting in the blessed month of Ramadhan starting from before daybreak lasting throughout the day and breaking fast after sunset. Not drinking and eating throughout the fast and abstaining from sexual relations with one's spouse and keeping to the do's and refraining from the don'ts during the act of fasting, all through the blessed Ramadhan and onwards.

     




    4.Giving alms /charity in the form of Zakat @ 2.5% out of the wealth that one has.



    5. Perform the Hajj pilgrimage to Makkah and Madinah, Islam's two holiest cities at least once in our lifetime if we are able to, can afford to do so, and capable.


      I wish you the best in learning about Islam, the only faith from our Creator, Allah the Most Compassionate, Most Patient, Most Kind. All praises and glories be to Him, Ar Rahman, Ar Raheem.

      Truly, I marvel at His Magnificence, His Forbearing with our human attitudes and recalcitrant ways, always in strife and animosity towards one another and our often stubborn attitude in defying Him whenever we feel that we are capable of this and that without realizing our fragility. 


      Our temporariness. Our life that can be extinguished at any given second. Living on borrowed time. Literally!

      Really, I'm so humbled before His Mercy towards us, mankind.

      May Allah bless and guide us all towards His Forgiveness.

      Amin.


      Don't try to rush things. Learning about your birthright to be as a Muslim should be done naturally and a step at a time. 


      Ask questions if you have any but do so in an appropriate way and manner following which those whom you ask will feel inclined to help teach you about Islam in a way that is just and correct.


      As for myself, I will share with you when I have the chance or opportunity to do so. Am getting busier by the day because I'm working on a media project right now where I have to focus my energies and attention towards earning my keep in order to be able to carry out my dakwah projects which do require funds and finances as much as I do need to support myself and my family.


      Thus, I'm forced to be burning the midnight oil so to speak! :)

      God Willing, I'll share more with you in the next article.

      Wassalamualaikum.
