Dear brothers and sisters,
I came across an article written by a PROF DR MOHAMAD TAJUDDIN MOHAMAD RASDI where he laments the direction being taken by Dr. Hassan Ali, the former Selangor Exco and now the President of JATI where the latter has been stating that there is a concerted effort by Christians to proselytize Muslims into apostatizing from Islam in this nation.
Among the various issues he raised in his article which I have reproduced in full below are his views with regard to the position of Islam which he claims to be the 'youngest faith' in this world!
Prof Dr Mohamad Tajuddin states: 'With respect to the third point, I hold to the personal view that all religious faiths are brethrens or siblings, Islam being the youngest in the family. Christianity and Judaism, I view as older brothers with Hinduism being the eldest to my knowledge.
The reformative ideas of Buddhism stems from Hinduism and can be considered part of the same family of religions. I can’t understand why Muslims hate to be viewed in this manner. My article on Malay-Muslims and the Perfect Religion Syndrome explains much of this view.'
I wish to republish the article concerned before it gets removed for the sake of proving my point that the article by the said professor is blasphemous and full of contradictions as to the position of Islam here in this world.
I would also like to warn those of you who are Muslims to not take what the following article contains as to be the truth for IT IS NOT!!!
Here is the full article that has been republished by Free Malaysia Kini:
Christians, Muslims are siblings of the same calling
I'd like to ask the Professor as to what faith Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala taught our Father Prophet Adam Alaihis Salam after having created Prophet Adam Alaihis Salam from earth taken from all parts of the planet by Sayyidina Izra'il Alaihis Salam?
What Aqeedah was Prophet Adam Alaihis Salam taught by Allahu Azza Wa Jala Himself?
If we are to take the Professor's words seriously that Hinduism is the oldest religious faith as his statement has been published in Malaysiakini's article here and republished freely here, then I say that Professor Dr Mohamad Tajuddin Mohamad has clearly blasphemed against Allahu Ta'ala and committed Syirik al Akbar by associating Allahu Rabbul Alamin with the various deities and idols worshiped by the Kaffirs of this world.
As usual, JAKIM @ Jabatan Kemajuan Islam Malaysia which is the Department of Islamic Development of Malaysia, Prime Minister's Department would be oblivious to this publishing of an article said to be written or penned by a teaching Professor of Architecture in Universiti Teknologi Malaysia.
Imagine the consequences of his students or followers starting to believe in his blasphemous views that Islam is the youngest faith here on Earth and that Hinduism, Buddhism, Christianity, etc are the predecessors of Allahu Ta'ala's Deen for us?
Islam is the first and only revealed faith from Allahu Ta'ala for all mankind.
After Prophet Adam Alaihis Salam passed away, his widespread offsprings started to deviate from his true message of Islam and all these man made faiths started to be imagined by his offspring.
Why do you think there were 124,000 prophets sent to the various tribes of mankind one after another by Allah to guide them back to Al Islam?
In Surah Al Ghafir (Al Mu'min) Chapter 40:78, Allah Azza Wa Jalla states :
TransliterationWalaqad arsalna rusulan min qablikaminhum man qasasna AAalayka waminhum man lamnaqsus AAalayka wama kana lirasoolinan ya/tiya bi-ayatin illa bi-ithni Allahifa-itha jaa amru Allahi qudiya bilhaqqiwakhasira hunalika almubtiloon
Sahih InternationalAnd We have already sent messengers before you. Among them are those [whose stories] We have related to you, and among them are those [whose stories] We have not related to you. And it was not for any messenger to bring a sign [or verse] except by permission of Allah . So when the command of Allah comes, it will be concluded in truth, and the falsifiers will thereupon lose [all].
In Surah Ar Ra'ad Chapter 13 Verse 7, Allahu Ta'ala speaks about those who disbelieve :
TransliterationWayaqoolu allatheena kafaroo lawlaonzila AAalayhi ayatun min rabbihi innama anta munthirunwalikulli qawmin had
Sahih InternationalAnd those who disbelieved say, "Why has a sign not been sent down to him from his Lord?" You are only a warner, and for every people is a guide.
It is important for those of us who declare ourselves to be Muslims to know that there is no other faith that has been revealed for us except for Islam!
This professor is obviously confused about his knowledge with regard to Islam and he should repent sincerely towards Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala for his blasphemy and Syirik al Akbar.
Verily Allah declares that He will forgive us of all our sins except that of Syirik ~ Associating Allah with others in worship.
I wrote about this subject and published it here and have even recorded a video response from the learned Deputy Spiritual Head of PAS Al Fadhil Professor Dato Dr Harun Din Al Haj when I visited him at his home in Bandar Baru Bangi:
Professor Dr Mohamad Tajudin needs to be corrected publicly as he has published his deviant statements blaspheming against Islam and Allahu Ta'ala online and this article of mine is intended to correct the grievous misunderstanding caused by the professor in the very same platform which is on the public realm of the internet.
The professor may have his points about the religious scholars and ulamaks needing to improve on their manners or methods of inviting all Mankind to Islam and to base their callings upon love and compassion but at the same time, he has seriously erred in his understandings about the position of Islam and its origins.
Simple, straight to the point questions to the professor :
- What faith did Allah teach our Father, the First Man, created up there in Paradise ~ Jannahtul Al Firdaus - not here on Earth?
- What was the teachings with regard to Aqeedah that Adam Alaihis Salam was taught by Allah?
TransliterationKana annasu ommatan wahidatanfabaAAatha Allahu annabiyyeena mubashshireenawamunthireena waanzala maAAahumu alkitaba bilhaqqiliyahkuma bayna annasi feemaikhtalafoo feehi wama ikhtalafa feehi illa allatheenaootoohu min baAAdi ma jaat-humu albayyinatubaghyan baynahum fahada Allahu allatheena amanoolima ikhtalafoo feehi mina alhaqqi bi-ithnihiwallahu yahdee man yashao ila siratinmustaqeem
Sahih InternationalMankind was [of] one religion [before their deviation]; then Allah sent the prophets as bringers of good tidings and warners and sent down with them the Scripture in truth to judge between the people concerning that in which they differed. And none differed over the Scripture except those who were given it - after the clear proofs came to them - out of jealous animosity among themselves. And Allah guided those who believed to the truth concerning that over which they had differed, by His permission. And Allah guides whom He wills to a straight path.
The truth of Islam is evident. It is up to us to have it in us the needed levels of intellect and understandings about true Islam in order to be proper Mukmins and not simply deduce it to be as the same like others?
That kind of screwed up thinking will render one's Iman to be void and invalid!
In Surah Al Baqarah, Chapter 2 Verse 256, Allah the Almighty tells us:
TransliterationLa ikraha fee addeeniqad tabayyana arrushdu mina alghayyi faman yakfur bittaghootiwayu/min billahi faqadi istamsaka bilAAurwatialwuthqa la infisama laha wallahusameeAAun AAaleem
Sahih InternationalThere shall be no compulsion in [acceptance of] the religion. The right course has become clear from the wrong. So whoever disbelieves in Taghut and believes in Allah has grasped the most trustworthy handhold with no break in it. And Allah is Hearing and Knowing.
May Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala guide him back to the Truth of al Islam and give him a chance to repent. Ameen.
I just wish that any other person or persons intending to write publicly about Islam do their research properly based upon the Al Quran and authentic hadiths before having their personal opinions published online.
Failure to do so will render the blasphemer be guilty of the major Sin of Syirik al Akbar! Na'uzubillahiminzalik!
I will be following up on this with the relevant authorities Insya Allah.
Wabillahi Taufik Wal Hidayah.
Wassalamualaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh.
