Apostasy is for the Ignorant's!

Apostasy from Islam seems to be the major issue that is on the world population's attention nowadays!

Why only Islam?

Reason being it is the only revealed faith from Allah the Almighty. It started with the Creation of the Father of all Mankind ~ Sayyidina Adam Alaihis Salam.

Created with earthen clay taken from all parts of this planet Earth by none other save for Sayyidina Izra'il Alaihis Salam upon being commanded to do so by Allahu Rabbul Alamin.

All the other of Allah's Malaikats @ Angels failed to accomplish the mission of getting earthen clay from Mother Earth to be used in the creation of Adam Alaihis Salam.

Renowned Islamic Scholar the Learned Professor Dato' Dr Harun Din Al Haj shared about this matter in a very detailed lecture many years back. The lecture was widely acclaimed by the many students and researchers in the Islamic world. I too learned quite a lot about the spiritual realm of Islamic Knowledge by studying from his work and other sources.

The difference between Islam and the rest of the self imagined beliefs practiced by a large majority amongst the many tribes and nations of mankind stems from the principal bedrock of faith in our Creator and the various forms of Kufur @ Disbelief towards Him the Almighty by adducing this and that fictitious deities conjured up by the ignorant ones amongst us.

Whether we like it or not, Belief in Allah or Disbelief towards Him is rooted in the knowledge or ignorance that one comes to possess during one's lifetime.

Belief in Allah is rooted in the realization of Life that is eminent in each and every living being or creation of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala encompassing all that there is in the seen and unseen worlds contained in the universes.

No matter how highly advanced any one is in the field of science and technology nowadays that would have baffled and stupefied the learned ones of the era's gone by, when it comes to the matter of life, even the most knowledgeable geniuses we have today with us will give up when posed with the question of 'Who gives us and every other living entity life?'

To know about the indefinite realities about Life and the surety of Death that has befallen so many others before us and which will definitely bring our own lifetime to an end demands that the thinking ones amongst us ponder upon one's ultimate acceptance that no matter what, everyone whether being a Muslim or a Kaffir will die one day and the same goes for every other creation of Allah!

Those who are advocating 'Apostasy from Islam' need to ask themselves as to who it is who created them?

The self imagined deity or deities which they worship at the bequest or exhortations of others or have been deluded into thinking that there is some other being more powerful than Allah?

What a preposterous notion that their self imagined god or deity chose to be born at that corner of the road junction or in some ominous spot not befitting the Majesty and Grandeur of Ar Rahman Ar Rahim Who is Above the entire creations!!!

To have latter day so called liberal thinking 'Muslims' being open to the so called freedom of choice in not worshiping Allah as our Supreme Lord and Creator is actually very heartbreaking.

Do these persons not realize that by their words and actions, they have actually stepped out of the fold of Islam and corrupted their Creed @ Aqeedah?

You can't claim to be a Muslim yet advocate the freedom to worship another as your god! There is no room for pluralism in Islam. One worships Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala as one's Only God and Master.

To associate anything else with Allah is haram and takes one out of the fold of Islam.

Those who think they can get away with saying everyone is free to choose whatever one wants to pray to is clearly an apostate and ought to be judged accordingly.

There's no 'if's' or 'but's' about it.

Period.

In Surah An Nisa, Chapter 4 Verse 48, Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala clearly warns against anyone associating anything with Him:


4:48
Transliteration
Inna Allaha la yaghfiru anyushraka bihi wayaghfiru ma doona thalika limanyashao waman yushrik billahi faqadi iftaraithman AAatheema
Sahih International
Indeed, Allah does not forgive association with Him, but He forgives what is less than that for whom He wills. And he who associates others with Allah has certainly fabricated a tremendous sin.
The authentic hadith of Rasulullah Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam clearly states as to what is in store for those who apostate from Islam:


So to all those who are being careless with what they say and opinionate  with regard to the question of worshiping some other being or deity instead of Almighty Allah, my advice to them is to repent and return to the true faith of Islam or suffer the consequences of their errors not only while still being alive here on Earth but also in the Hereafter.

Who gave us the Faculty of Reason if not Allah?

Think very carefully and return to the birthright of each and every human being to be nothing but a true servant of The Almighty.



Stop sliding towards the abyss of Apostasy and regain one's firm footing in the Truth of Ad Deenul Islam and re-establish one's Iman and Fitrah of Islam. The only true faith from Allah, God Most Supreme, Most High.

Insya Allah.

Wabillahi Taufik Wal Hidayah.

Wassalamualaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh.

Fossils for sale!

Its mind boggling to see fossils aged millions of years being put up for sale just for a few hundreds ringgits and less!
I came across these fine collection of fossils at Kinokuniya KLCC.
Try  and imagine the impossibility of us ever coming across such treasures on our own!
This sale of such fossils has boggled my mind ever since I set my unbelieving eyes upon them years before!
How could this be?

Malaysian mindsets ~ Is it possible to turn duds into diamonds?

First and foremost, I'd like to apologize to you my respected readers and fellow bloggers for being so caught up in my current responsibility in now being the chairman of a joint management body of the very apartment where we have been living since 2003.

Life has been so hectic for me since shouldering this tremendous burden of managing two blocks of apartment buildings containing 540 units. It all started when we, the residents of these apartments had our apartment units water supply cut off on the 18th of September 2012!

Reason was that the JMB @ Joint Management Body had failed to pay the SYABAS water bills! When I come to think of it, this has happened a couple of times before. 

All these while we had been fooled into believing that the water tanks were being drained and cleaned and I recollect seeing the BOMBA water hoses being used to fill up the water tanks at the ground levels of our apartment block. Now, it dawns upon me that we had been hoodwinked by the culprits who were mismanaging our residential apartments.

Anyway, to cut straight to the matter at hand, we the residents had enough of the CBT and decided to hold an EGM voting out those who had been letting our apartments go to ruin.

All of the JMB's funds have been siphoned dry and huge debts had been accumulated over the years since these chaps took over. Contractors and service providers were lining up to demand that the monies owed to them was paid no matter who it is running the JMB!

I for one on behalf of our JMB sought the advice of an established lawyer and was so relieved to learn that we who are now managing these apartments are not liable or responsible for the debts of those who were robbing us blind before this.

I knew beforehand that we as the new management of these apartments couldn't be held answerable for the debts incurred by those before us? It is ridiculous to ask us to pay the debts of others when it was not us who signed the contract with those service providers in the first place! 

One does not need to be a lawyer to know this. It's common logic. Those contractors were cronies of the fella who had been mismanaging our place and the contracts awarded were mostly over the allocated monthly budget! 

So, it is natural for them to be pissed as they can't have it their way anymore as I and the new JMB Committee are slowly but surely changing the way things have been to what it should be.

Yesterday, three of them awaited me as I entered the management office and demanded to know why there was uncollected rubbish since I had told the illegally employed cleaners that I had no intention of retaining the services of the cleaning enterprise which had been overcharging the previous JMB exorbitantly to the tune of RM3450 over the allocated monthly management budget!

The allocated monthly budget for the cleaning services of our apartments is only RM5250.00 but the cleaning service had been enjoying a monthly contract of RM8700.00!!!

Frankly speaking, it all smells fishy and as the new management, we decided that enough is enough. We can't be bothered about those who had been robbing us blind all these while and we just have to go about cutting costs if we are to bring these apartments around financially, physically and regain our apartment's prestige!

Whether we realize it or not, each and every dwelling has its own prestige and distinction. If we had just minded our own business as what we had done since 2003, then these apartments would really turn into a squatter colony!

The apartments where we live has a swimming pool but there's been no enforcement of House Rules since way back then and you would grimace and turn your head away with disgust if you are to witness the horrendous way some of the folks misuse and abuse the pool!

Most of them do not wear the appropriate swimming attire and enter the pool as they damn well please! No swimming caps are being worn by most of the girls and grown up women. As a result, you'd witness the female swimmers having their long hair floating about like those belonging to the banshees one sees featured in the scary movies!

It's a nightmare for the swimming pool contractor as loose hair from the ones not wearing their swimming caps eventually ends up at the suction areas of the pool's water filters and clogs it up! Who'd end up paying for such repairs? The JMB! Who else???

I can't for the life of me figure out why this mindset seems to be the chosen one adopted by most of these folks who simply do not give a damn or bother about the common rules and regulations that governs the usage of a common swimming pool?

The difference between residents who stay in condominiums, apartments and squatter colonies is the attitude of its residents. Those who know how to use each facility appropriately and conform to the accepted standards and those who don't give a rat's ass to all such regulations is so glaring that it hurts!

As the new Chairman of the JMB, I have no choice but to slowly and surely change the way things are here in our apartments. Rules and regulations are starting to be enforced and these changes are causing those who had been having it their way all these while some pain in their butt and in their corrupted minds!!!

Talk about trying to turn duds into diamonds!!!

This is the challenge I and our JMB Committee have before us right now!

Update:

As of the 20th of November, 2012 following a meeting which the DBKL's Commissioner of Building ruled that since the former JMB didn't sign any letter of resignation and just did so verbally, they still are the valid JMB.

The COB Asst Director said that although the COB appreciates me and our Joint Action Committee for all the good work we have done since taking over, the fact remains that these chaps didn't tender in their resignation letters to the COB and are still recognized as the JMB of our apartments by the COB. Regardless of all the evidences I brought to the meeting showing proof of the malpractices by the management committee before us.

As I am not an owner myself - being a proxy of my spouse whose name appears as the owner of the apartment we live in, I am thus not eligible to head the JMB or even be in the committee, I had to return control of the management back to those guys no matter that they didn't hold the AGM since 2009 or had shown us the accounts for all those years!

We managed to successfully pay RM25000 in cash to SYABAS from the funds which we collected during our interim management of the apartments. 

We successfully engaged a reliable roofing contractor and repaired the leaking roofs of two apartment units in our block.

We reduced the costs of engaging the cleaning service contractor by hiring a new one for RM5100 per month, effectively reducing the monthly service contract which was RM8700 per month with the previous contractor.

We employed our own security guards whereby we managed to not shoulder the monthly RM17000 over contract that they signed with the security company and thus avoiding unnecessary expenditure which the JMB had to pay each month!

Its not like we are so hard up in running the place but because we had no choice but to do so in order to avoid any further repetition of the SYABAS water cuts which affected us terribly those 3 days in September.

With the greatest of relief, I gladly returned such control of the management to them and have no regrets but just an ardent wish that they will live up to their promises to correct the situation here at our apartments.

No matter what, the truth will always prevail. If not here during our sojourn on Earth now, then in the Hereafter where Allahu Rabbul Alamin will judge us as to our deeds and what we have done so far?

Insya Allah.

As Allah is our Witness, we who did what we had done did so purely for the sake of looking out for our rights and out of necessity! It was truly not what we desired or were after for it was like trying to stop the Titanic from sinking for the obvious reasons.

No matter what these chaps will try to pin on us, our hearts and minds plus our conscience is clear for we did what any other rational person would do. Stop the rot and try to salvage what we can and we did!

The COB ruled for an AGM to be held at the end of this month ~ 29th December. Hopefully a better committee will be elected to take charge and return our apartments to what it should be.

Insya Allah.

No Rule Izzah! Islam as you please, eh?





Sometimes it's best to let the video speak for itself as it's normal now for those caught saying something that exposes their twisted mindset to try and wriggle their way out by saying it's all a lie and sheer fabrication!

Just wondering how some folks like 'No Rule Izzah' is going to defend herself when its her turn to stand before the Almighty in the Yaum al Akhirat and explain her call for people to be free to choose whom they worship?

I thought that as mankind grow technologically more advanced, they'd be much more able to figure out the difference between the Supreme Creator and those figments of their own imagination whom they take to be their god?

Looks like many so called modern 'educated' folks living today are much more screwed up than those considered as being primitive!

Renaissance of the Jahiliyyah!

When Ignorants speak about freedom of Faith (updated)

In these End Times, Ignorants amongst the political leaders speaking about the Freedom of Faith tends to be the trend because there are many people amongst us who are living life as they damn well please due to the lack of sincere Dakwah al Islamiyyah being carried out by the 'Ulul 'Amri and the knowledgeable ones amongst the Ummah.

Opinions such as the one being attributed to Nurul Izzah daughter of Anwar Ibrahim are clearly those that belong to the gutter and should not be taken as a fatwa for the very reason that she is not fit to be listened to in matters concerning Iman and Aqeedah.


4:115
Transliteration
Waman yushaqiqi arrasoolamin baAAdi ma tabayyana lahu alhuda wayattabiAAghayra sabeeli almu/mineena nuwallihi ma tawallawanuslihi jahannama wasaat maseera
Sahih International
And whoever opposes the Messenger after guidance has become clear to him and follows other than the way of the believers - We will give him what he has taken and drive him into Hell, and evil it is as a destination.

Surah An Nisa Chapter 4 Verse 115.

When Nurul Izzah speaks about the freedom of faith without considering the implications of such words, inadvertently she encourages those who are ignorant in such matters of Faith and Creed in Islam to endeavor in a lifestyle devoid of Iman towards Rabbul Jalil.

Islam is the only revealed faith from Allah the Almighty and whomsoever speaks or gives out opinions that lead the gullible ignorant ones away from Him are guilty of encouraging kufr and apostasy from Islam.

Before Allahu Ta'ala we shall all stand in the Day of Judgment and He Will take each and every word we say or opinionate here on Earth which involves anything that involves exhorting anyone towards either having Faith in Him or otherwise to be used against us.

Nurul Izzah needs to repent if she intended to open the door for anyone to enter the folds of Kufr by claiming to have the freedom to choose any other Deen save for Islam.

Nurul Izzah needs to ask herself as to Who is our Creator?

Is there any other god except Allahu Ta'ala Rabbul Jalil that she and those like her believe in?

What is her level of knowledge about Iman and Aqeedah that gives her the right to speak about Al Islam in such an ignorant way and manner that is now being attributed to her as in this Kuffar's website and obviously Islamophobic news portal here?

It is also Kufr al Akbar for her to opinionate that the abominable lifestyle practiced by those who emulate the sinful behaviors of the Lesbian, Gays, Bisexual and Transexual haramis is okay if practiced in secret!

Laknatullah! Cursed be those who agree with the ones who adopt the lifestyle of Lut Alaihis Salam's accursed 'kaum'!

Verily the Truth stands out crystal clear from Falsehood yet there are those like Nurul Izzah who are seriously afflicted with the Diarrhea of the Lip and tend to bite off more than they can chew especially when speaking about something that is not in his or her area of speciality.

One who has yet to reach a certain level of knowledge and wisdom in matters concerning Iman and Aqeedah would do better not to get themselves embroiled in such speech which would lead them to the gates of Jahannam in the Hereafter. 

Na'uzubillahiminzalik!
