Guard denies murdering Ambank officer? Who the hell is in this Ambank CCTV video then?



Malaysia's justice system must be really screwed up! 

It's the law of the proverbial jungle! To hell with all these CCTV recordings! 


What other bloody kind of evidence does our Malaysian Justice Department need?

Really! It's so crystal clear that this Indonesian murderer La Ode Ardi Rasila shot and killed Norazita Abdul Talib the Ambank female officer in that robbery which he committed!

His face is so clear in that bank's CCTV footage! Even Datuk Abdul Rahim Jaafar, the Selangor Deputy Police Commissioner, says clearly what took place and implicates the now arrested murderous robber in the video above.

Why do the media keep using the word 'allegedly' when the CCTV so clearly shows the man committing the crime?

'Allegedly' is used to convey that something is claimed to be the case or has taken place, although there is no proof. Not in this case! All the proof that the courts need are up there in these videos! 

What more do they need in order 'to call a spade just that'?

Bila ISA di mansuhkan Najib Tun Razak ~ Tanduk2 Setan mula bercambah..

Assalamualaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh!


Saya sengaja mendiamkan diri memerhatikan reaksi spontan para pembangkang dan musuh musuh politik Kerajaan Persekutuan Malaysia dibawah pimpinan Barisan Nasional semasa dan seperti yang saya jangka jelas menunjukkan bahawa Perdana Menteri Mohd Najib Tun Razak ternyata mengambil risiko paling besar didalam sejarah pentadbiran Malaysia dengan memansuhkan Akta Keselamatan Dalam Negeri atau ISA dan lain lain akta yang berkait.


Memang Malaysia sudah lama dikawal selia dek Akta Keselamatan Dalam Negeri yang merangkumi segala keperluan mengekang dan membanteras anasir anasir yang senantiasa berusaha untuk menjatuhkan kerajaan sedia ada diatas kemahuan masing masing untuk merasai kuasa politik pentadbiran negeri dan negara pula.


Yang paling ketara sekali adalah reaksi parti pembangkang DAP yang melalui Ahli Parlimennya Manoharan mula melatah mahu bendera negara kita ditukar kerana kononnya tidak menepati citarasanya? 

Sejak sekian lama ini Teresa Kok (DAP Seputeh) mempertikaikan penggunaan tulisan Jawi di papan papantanda jalan di Wilayah Persekutuan Kuala Lumpur  dan juga di kawasan kawasan dimana DAP berkuasa seperti di Pulau Pinang dan di Ipoh! 




Apa ke benda yang dia sakit hati sangat dengan tulisan Jawi? Bukannya kacau kehidupan dia pun? Ini kes tak sadar diri hidup di Tanah Melayu!!!



Suka benar hati dia dapat memasukkan tulisan2 Mandarin ke dalam papantanda kawasan parlimen nya! Memang ada resam 'Bagai Belanda mendapat tanah!'



Baru baru ini Teresa Kok menerbitkan sebuah video satira politik Tahun Baru Cina dengan menyindir isteri PM Najib Razak serta memperlecehkan peranan pasukan keselamatan negara di Sabah melalui video itu!





Sekilas pandang kita dah tahu siapa yang dia sedang sindir dengan watak di atas!



Selepas masyarakat Melayu naik marah dan mengugut untuk menampar muka nya, tahu pula dia takut dan bingkas pergi membuat repot polis mengenai ancaman di tampar itu!



Ada juga Melayu dan Muslim2 yang mahu bersama si pencetus ketegangan di kalangan masyarakat kita ini?

Ada baik dan buruk didalam perebutan kuasa politik ini tetapi kita perlu melihat akan siapakah dia mereka yang mahu menjadi pengganti dan peneraju kerajaan yang baru?


Bilamana sesebuah kerajaan terlalu lama memegang tampuk kuasa, ada bahaya kelesuan minda meresap masuk kedalam sistem pemerintahan. Keyakinan bahawa biar apa pun berlaku, mereka tetap akan berkuasa boleh membuatkan sesebuah parti politik itu hilang rasa prihatin akan keadaan rakyat dibawah perintah mereka.


Negara kita ini boleh dikatakan masih mentah lagi. Sepertimana pengkaji sejarah menyatakan bahawa kemerdekaan kita tidaklah dicapai melalui perjuangan secara ketenteraan membebaskan diri dari cengkaman penjajah Inggeris.


Almarhum Tunku Abdul Rahman tidak menyandang senjata menentang Inggeris sepertimana Allahyarham Dato Seri Maharaja Lela, Dato Sagor dan Pandak Indut.
Zaman sekarang, musuh2 Islam dan Melayu cepat sekali mengambil kesempatan untuk menyerang minda dan mencetuskan suasana ketidakselesaan terhadap apa apa sahaja penyataan yang berlandaskan kefahaman Islam dan kebudayaan warisan tradisional Melayu!

Mereka tidak ada masaalah didalam meninggalkan adat resam tinggalan nenek moyang mereka sebab lumrah bagi mereka mengambil apa sahaja jalan pendekatan bagi mencari kelebihan duniawi. Adat tradisi mereka semakin lama semakin pupus di sebabkan pendirian mereka yang mementingkan kebendaan semata mata.

'Masuk kandang kambing dia mengembek ; masing kandang kerbau dia menguak!' Tetapi kini dah ada ura ura nak mengambil alih kandang sekaligus! Ianya tidak mustahil mungkin berlaku!

Lihat sahaja di Singapura! 

Mana perginya Kesultanan Melayu di sana? Hanya tinggal puing puing sahaja dengan saki baki warisan Melayu mengumpul habuk di Kg.Gelam. Kini tinggal menjadi Pusat Warisan Melayu sahaja.

Di Pulau Pinang kini, penguasaan orang orang Melayu sudah semakin berkurangan dari sehari ke sehari! 

Kesultanan Kedah Darul Aman tak kelihatan bersemangat langsong untuk menuntut hak sebagai Pemerintah jajahan takluk Pulau Pinang dan seberang Perai! Lupakan sahaja hasrat kebanyakan penduduk untuk bersultankan Raja Melayu disana!

Nasi sudah menjadi bubur! Sesal dahulu pendapatan ; sesal kemudian tak ada guna nya, syeh!

Begini lah jadinya bila PM Najib Razak terikut ikut sangat kehendak cauvinis DAP dengan merungkaikan segala perundangan keselamatan yang menjaga kepentingan negara sekian lama ini!

Sekarang, bising begitu begini apa faedahnya?

Islam ~ The True Liberator of Women by Sister Amina Assilmi (Allahyarhamah)

Attention to all women out there! Come and listen to the late Sister Amina Assilmi from the United States of America share with her audience in a lecture that was held in Canada.

She explains very clearly in the following first part of her lecture as to why Muslim women are in actuality the most liberated women on Earth?

Her own experiences are shared eloquently and in a manner that is both pleasant to hear and easy to understand. Her sources are The Holy Qur'an and Sunnah of the Blessed Prophet of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala.

Listen and learn. Insya Allah!



See how appropriate and aptly she answers her questioners and how relaxed and with full of wisdom, she responded to her audience. 

May Allah Azza Wa Jalla bless her soul for the exemplary and excellent work she did for the American people and the rest of the world in coming to accept and understand Islam for what it really is and not what it is at times made out to be!

Sister Amina Assilmi passed away on the 5th of March, 2013 in a traffic accident. She was 65 years old. Amina Assilmi was a Cherokee Indian native American Muslim leader.

She was the President of The International Union of Muslim Women. She was also instrumental in getting the US Postal Services recognize and issue the first ever US Postal stamp featuring the Muslim Eid festive days.

She was highly respected by the US Congressmen and women and often consulted by The White House in relation to American Muslim affairs and issues.

Amina Assilmi was often invited to speak at events, seminars and Comparative Religion forums worldwide.

Her passing away is a great loss to the Muslim world but as Muslims who believe in the Qada and Qadr of Allahu Ta'ala, we accept this loss with patience and pray that our dear sister in Islam, Amina Assilmi is blessed by Allah the Most Compassionate to be amongst those upon whom He Showers His Mercy!

Ameen. Ya Rabbal Alameen.

PETUALANG LAHAD DATU, SABAH MASIH BELUM DI TANGKAP??? MENGAPA NAJIB MASIH MEMBISU???

Bergenang air mata saya membaca kisah2 sedih balu2 perwira perwira negara kita yang syahid di medan tempur Lahad Datu, Sabah!

Betapa tinggi pengorbanan mereka dan kedahsyatan cabaran yang sedang di tempuh mereka serta anak anak yang kehilangan ayah2 mereka selama lamanya! 

Manakala petualang negara yang merancangkan pencerobohan pengganas pengganas Sulu masih bebas tanpa tindakan dan pendakwaan oleh pihak berkuasa Malaysia!

APAKAH STATUS KES LAHAD DATU INI???

Apakah sia sia sahaja pengorbanan para pegawai Polis Diraja Malaysia dan Angkatan Tentera Malaysia kita itu???

Apakah sudah di tutup fail kes kes pendakwaan terhadap pengkhianat negara yang menyanyikan lagu 'Sabah nak hilang?'

Apakah Kerajaan Malaysia sudah lupa terhadap kematian para pejuang2 negara kita?


ANGGOTA2 POLIS DIRAJA MALAYSIA YANG GUGUR SYAHID:
ALLAHYARHAM ALLAHYARHAM

ALLAHYARHAM ALLAHYARHAM :
  1. Koperal Ahmad Hurairah Ismail (24) Pasir Mas, Kelantan
  2. Koperal Ahmad Farhan Ruslan (21) Pasir Tumboh, Kelantan
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

KESEMUA PERWIRA PERWIRA DARI PDRM DAN PERAJURIT PERAJURIT KITA DARI ATM MATI SYAHID DAN MENDIANG ASP MICHAEL PADEL TERKORBAN MEMPERTAHANKAN KEDAULATAN NEGARA TETAPI PERANCANG UTAMA PENCEROBOHAN DI LAHAD DATU SABAH ITU SAMPAI KE SAAT INI MASIH BEBAS DAN PIHAK PIHAK PDRM SERTA ATM DAN KEMENTERIAN PERTAHANAN SERTA KEMENTERIAN DALAM NEGERI MASIH TIDAK MENDEDAHKAN IDENTITI LAKNAT ITU WALAU PUN MEREKA MEMPUNYAI SEGALA BUKTI BUKTI UNTUK MENSABITKAN HARAMI ITU DI MUKA PENGADILAN!!!!

Apa guna nya masing masing bergelar Menteri begitu begini jika tidak berani menegakkan keadilan di dalam negara kita ini???

Apakah tidak cukup asas asas pertuduhan untuk mengaitkan pencerobohan terancang di Lahad Datu, Sabah itu dengan bukti kukuh si polan di dalam rakaman video You Tube ini boleh dok nyanyi bahawa Najib dah goyang sebab Sabah nak hilang?



Anwar Ibrahim menyanyikan lagu di atas berkali kali di serata negara sebelum terjadi nya peristiwa pencerobohan pengganas pengganas Sulu itu!

Ini bukan lah suatu kes yang rumit gila babi sampai tak boleh nak kaitkan dia dengan pencerobohan ke atas negeri Sabah yang merupakan sebahagian dari negara kita!

Para pengganas pengganas Sulu ini sudah tentu di biayai orang orang yang mempunyai agenda dan rancangan untuk menangguk di air keruh bila Sabah menjadi pertaruhan mereka untuk berkuasa di dalam negara kita sekiranya Kerajaan BN yang ada sekarang tumbang akibat ketidakstabilan politik negara tercetus dek pencerobohan ini!



JANGAN NANTI MENTERI MENTERI BERKENAAN DAN PERDANA MENTERI NAJIB RAZAK SENDIRI DI CATATKAN DIDALAM LIPATAN SEJARAH NEGARA KITA SEBAGAI KETUA KETUA KERAJAAN MALAYSIA YANG PALING LEMAH DAN PENGECUT SAMA SAMA BERSUBAHAT DIDALAM TRAGEDI LAHAD DATU ITU!!!

Anak sulung Anwar Ibrahim si Nurul Izzah (Ahli Parlimen Lembah Pantai PKR) yang ilmu pengetahuan amnya entah apa apa turut terlibat menghina dan memperkecilkan peranan dan tugas anggota anggota Polis Di Raja Malaysia dari Pasukan Gerakan Am dan pegawai pegawai Polis dari Cawangan Khas didalam ucapan nya didalam rakaman video You Tube di bawah:



Setelah puas menyanyi di sana sini bahawa Najib dah goyang dan Sabah nak hilang, Anwar Ibrahim muncul pula membuat rakaman video dibawah menyalahkan pihak UMNO dan Kerajaan Malaysia dibawah Najib diatas kelemahan mereka membiarkan pengganas pengganas Sulu mencerobohi wilayah Lahad Datu di Sabah:



Apakah semua ini hanya sandiwara Anwar dan juga pihak berkuasa di Malaysia memperjudikan nasib serta nyawa2 anggota2 pasukan keselamatan negara kita serta rakyat di Sabah didalam pertembungan politik di antara Pakatan DAP-PKR-PAS dengan BN dan agenda kedua pihak untuk ingin terus berkuasa ?



Apakah pihak berkuasa Malaysia yang ada ini sudah tutup fail dan melupakan perbuatan kejam pengganas pengganas Sulu terhadap jasad para perwira negara kita yang mati syahid di Lahad Datu?


Buka lah mata luas luas dan lihat betul betul!


Mayat anggota keselamatan kita yang terkorban di cincang dan dipotong potong pengganas pengganas Sulu yang konon nya orang orang Islam juga dari Kepulauan Sulu, Selatan Filipina!
Seorang anggota keselamatan negara kita yang cedera akibat terkena tembakan peluru pengganas Sulu semasa pertempuran di Lahad Datu sedang diberikan rawatan.

Ahli Parlimen Batu PKR Tian Chua (gambar dibawah) mengeluarkan kenyataan bahawa peristiwa di Lahad Datu itu hanya sandiwara UMNO! 

Keluarga keluarga perwira negara kita yang gugur mati syahid di sana mempertahankan kedaulatan negara hancur kehidupan mereka kini tetapi laknat laknat begini boleh dengan selamba sahaja memperlekehkan kematian dan pengorbanan para perwira perwira kita!





Entah lah tuan tuan dan puan puan, sama sewarganegara dengan saya! 

Sakit hati ini mengenangkan semua apa yang telah terjadi ini dan kelemahan Kerajaan Malaysia di bawah Najib Tun Razak yang terus membiarkan semua ini berlalu cuma tanpa mengambil langkah menghadapkan petualang petualang di sebalik pencerobohan pengganas pengganas Sulu di Lahad Datu, Sabah itu terus bebas sampai ke hari ini!

Itu baru pengganas pengganas Sulu yang kehidupan masing masing cuma kais pagi makan pagi, kais petang makan petang, datang menceroboh wilayah Sabah sebab di janjikan segenggam wang dan sebidang tanah jika mereka berjaya menakluki Sabah!

Ada di antara mereka begitu miskin dan tidak berkelengkapan perang selayaknya. Ada yang bersepatu biasa dan tubuh badan penuh berselirat dengan segala tangkal azimat ilmu hitam konon nya mampu kebal dari di tembak peluru dan sebagainya. 

Mati nya mereka jasad terus berulat dan menghitam wajah angkara sanggup mempercayai kuasa sihir dan iblis syaitan! 

Bukankah ini semua adalah petunjuk dari Allahu Ta'ala akan akibat perbuatan syirik menyekutukan Allah dengan pengamalan ilmu hitam?

Tangkal azimat tak dapat menyelamatkan penceroboh ini dari mati sia sia di Sabah!
Tak berupa manusia lagi si pengganas Sulu yang mati ini!
Kesudahan nasib penceroboh Sulu mampus di Lahad Datu, Sabah!
Bergelimpang mati di Kampong Tanduo, Sabah si pengganas Sulu ini
Mati berkecai kepala otak berterabur pengganas pengganas Sulu ini di Lahad Datu, Sabah!
Tali pinggang hijau pun tak dapat menjadikan penceroboh2 Sulu ini kebal 
dari dibunuh askar2 dan polis kita!
Seorang lagi pengganas Sulu yang kecundang di Sabah!
Mereka yang kononnya kebal tersungkur juga akhirnya di Sabah!
Betapa cepatnya mereput jasad penceroboh Sulu pengamal ilmu ilmu hitam!
Mayat mayat pengganas Sulu ditanam beramai ramai didalam kawasan ladang kelapa sawit di Lahad Datu!
Sudah rupa Jerangkong Hidup pengganas Sulu wanita ini dapat ditangkap!
Sudah tentu kedua Menteri Pertahanan dan Keselamatan Dalam Negeri kita ini tahu siapa dia Petualang di sebalik Tragedi Pencerobohan Pengganas Pengganas Sulu di Sabah setahun lalu tetapi mendiamkan diri kerana.... 

PM Najib Razak @ Ketua Kerajaan BN Malaysia (gambar di atas ini) masih belum memberikan lampu hijau untuk mereka mendedahkan identiti si pengkhianat negara yang masih bebas kesana kemari ke saat ini!!!

Apakah mungkin kita semua di kejutkan sang pemerintah tak lama lagi atau perkara ini akan di senyapkan terus sampai kita semua turut mati?

Wallahu alam bissawab!

Faith in Allah the Almighty, The One and Only True God.


Assalamualaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh.
May Peace, Mercy and Blessings of Allah be upon you!

I am fulfilling my promise to elaborate further on the subject of Iman @ Faith in Allah the Almighty God of us all.

Faith @ Iman in Allah is the key to our well being here on Earth and when we live according to what our Creator has prescribed for us, the rewards which we derive from such pure unshakable faith will determine our destiny both here in this world whilst we are still alive and when we pass away into the Realm of the Barzakh ( Spiritual Realm of the Grave) and in the Realm of the Akhirah (Hereafter).

In Surah Al-Hujurat, Chapter 49 Verse 15, Allah reveals to us :
49:15
Transliteration
Innama almu/minoona allatheenaamanoo billahi warasoolihi thumma lam yartaboowajahadoo bi-amwalihim waanfusihim fee sabeeli Allahiola-ika humu assadiqoon
Sahih International
The believers are only the ones who have believed in Allah and His Messenger and then doubt not but strive with their properties and their lives in the cause of Allah . It is those who are the truthful.

Those who steadfastly believe in Allah and His Messenger @ Prophet Muhammad and strive to live as good Muslims spending their money and time in the cause of Islam are duly recognized by Allah as his true servants and will be accorded their rightful stations as those who deserve being the dwellers of Allah's Paradises.

This faith @ Iman is not something that comes into being by chance or without any effort. One has to strive to learn and understand exactly as to Whom or what we truly believe in? Such a firm belief in knowing the Creator by spirit takes a lot of effort on our part to know Him by what He has chosen to reveal to us over the passage of Time through His 124,000 prophets and messengers.

The subject matter of Faith @ Iman in Islam requires one to possess a yearning desire to study and learn about Allah and all that He has chosen to share with us through His Final and Mightiest Messenger to us, the blessed Unlettered Prophet, Muhammad ibni Abdullah. Allah's Mercy for all Mankind and His entire Creations.

Believing in The Unseen God requires a special kind of dedication towards knowing that there exists forces of nature and The Supreme Being in the spiritual form that we mortal beings can't visualize but know its existence.

The living spirit within us is not something that even the most learned scientists or doctors can explain or show to us but do acknowledge its presence.

In Surah Al-Baqarah, Chapter 2 Verses 2 and 3, Allah reveals:


2:2
Transliteration
Thalika alkitabu larayba feehi hudan lilmuttaqeen
Sahih International
This is the Book (Al-Qur'an) about which there is no doubt, a guidance for those conscious of Allah -

2:3
Transliteration
Allatheena yu/minoona bilghaybiwayuqeemoona assalata wamimma razaqnahumyunfiqoon
Sahih International
Who believe in the unseen, establish prayer, and spend out of what We have provided for them,
Despite the tremendous advancements and achievements that Man has come to acquire in the field of Science and Technology, there are none who can create life except by the Will of Allah!

No matter who we are, whatever is the color of our skin or the color of our eyes, etc. we all have within us a formless living spirit that enables our heart to continue beating, keeping us alive.

Those who fail to acknowledge this are only fooling themselves and will suffer the consequences later when they are no longer alive. Even when they are alive, those without faith in Allah end up being in false worship of their fellow creation or figments of their vivid imaginations.

The very first human being whom Allah the Almighty created up there in the heavens was our Father, the Prophet Adam Alaihis Salam. It is Allah Who created Adam. Not through evolution as some would have you believe but by Allah the Almighty Himself, complete and perfect.

The thing that differentiates those of us who choose to believe and have faith in Allah and those who decide to differ is the matter that concerns our Creed @ Aqeedah. The Bedrock of our Faith.

Today, there are those amongst the Kaffirs who claim that they too worship Allah and have the right to address whatever it is that they submit themselves to as 'Allah'.

I am referring to the Catholic Church of Malaysia who insist that they be allowed to call their Trinitarian concept of 'god' as Allah! Surely they are misleading their flock into worshiping something other than Allah the True God when they refuse to come to terms that there is only One God and not Three as they would want their congregation to believe in.

In the Surah Al-Baqarah Chapter 2 Verses 4 and 5, Allah reveals :


2:4
Transliteration
Wallatheena yu/minoona bimaonzila ilayka wama onzila min qablika wabil-akhiratihum yooqinoon
Sahih International
And who believe in what has been revealed to you, [O Muhammad], and what was revealed before you, and of the Hereafter they are certain [in faith].

2:5
Transliteration
Ola-ika AAala hudan minrabbihim waola-ika humu almuflihoon
Sahih International
Those are upon [right] guidance from their Lord, and it is those who are the successful.
Life here on Earth is an ongoing process of human beings coming to terms with realizing our roles as caretakers of this planet with its myriads of other living creatures, plants, insects and many other forms of organisms that are both existing in the physical and spiritual forms.

Today, here we are using all kinds of gadgets and technologies which would have been deemed as impossible by those who lived before us. We use the wireless telecommunication systems which would have been deemed to be nothing but black magic or sorcery by people who lived in the Dark Ages.

Despite all these achievements, each and every one of us needs to have that peace of mind that comes only by acknowledging the Existence of God and by our submission to His Will and Commands.

A person who has faith in True God attains a state of tranquility, calmness and balance in his or her life. No matter what trials or tribulations come across the believing individual, he or she will be able to work through the problems and eventually succeed in solving such challenges and progress towards achieving whatever goals they have in mind.

Those who choose to disbelieve will continue to refuse and refute whatever proof or evidence that any well meaning Believer tries to share with them. This state of kufr @ disbelief is defined clearly by Almighty Allah in the following verse, also in Surah Al-Baqarah, Chapter 2 Verse 6:


2:6
Transliteration
Inna allatheena kafaroo sawaonAAalayhim aanthartahum am lam tunthirhum layu/minoon
Sahih International
Indeed, those who disbelieve - it is all the same for them whether you warn them or do not warn them - they will not believe.
No matter what one says or shares with the Kaffirs @ Disbelievers, their stubbornness will prevent them from seeing the truth nor accept it.

Surah Al Baqarah, Chapter 2 Verse 7:
2:7
Transliteration
Khatama Allahu AAala quloobihimwaAAala samAAihim waAAala absarihim ghishawatunwalahum AAathabun AAatheem
Sahih International
Allah has set a seal upon their hearts and upon their hearing, and over their vision is a veil. And for them is a great punishment.
None can give guidance and open up their hearts except Allah!

We can try our best to guide them but if they remain defiant and want to have nothing to do with Islam, then we should just let them be to answer for their decisions themselves in the Yaum al Akhirat!

Faith, dear brothers and sisters will be what sets us apart and determines our future stations in the Hereafter. We could end up either in Heaven or Hell depending as to what we come to believe in here on Earth and as to what we do with the life that Allah Has Given us?



Do not take this life for granted. One might have all the riches of the world in one's possession here but if one does not have faith in Allah and act according to what Allah commands us, then the person concerned will only find out later that such riches and wealth won't guarantee a befitting status in the next life.



I have lots more to share with you about Faith in Allah but I need to stop here for now. I will get back to you and share more in the following article. 

Insya Allah.

Till we meet again, 

Wassalamualaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh.

'Faith is a State of Mind' by Haji Zainol Abideen.






Bismillahirrahmanirrahim.
In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.


Assalamualaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh.
May peace, mercy and blessings of Allah be upon you!


Today, I would like to share with you my thoughts on this subject matter which has been on my mind for quite some time.


The subject of 'Faith' or 'Iman' as we Muslims call it.


The core ingredient that makes us who are amongst the servants of Allah in the Brotherhood and Sisterhood of Mankind, be Muslims. Those who believe in and have faith in God Almighty, Allahu Rabbul Alamin.


That means Allah, the Lord of all the Universes.


Now to those unaware of the precise way and manner by which the entire universes are created and exist or cease to be by the Will of Almighty Allah, such realities escape their attention due to the fact that they are more concerned with their own individual life's and situations.


Faith is a state of mind that incorporates the human awareness that he or she has not been created in vain or has come to be due to a fluke of nature?


No such thing. Nothing takes place without a cause or chain of actions and reactions that in turn give birth to a certain situation.


There has always been a cause and effect situation and it will be so forever. Even after this life as we know it comes to an end and Insya Allah ~ God Willing, we shall find ourselves in the Realm of the Barzakh.


The interim period where it has been revealed that our souls will be in a state of either amongst those favored and forgiven by Allah pending the coming of the Yaum al Akhirat ~ Doomsday or in a perpetual state of torture caused by our end being in a state of sin and cursed by the Almighty!


Only those capable of rational and intellectual thought would even take their time and effort to even consider all these.


Many a people are often found to be in a constant state of query, pondering upon their fate and as to why they have been born to be this or that?


Some bemoan their coming to be born as a member of certain tribes and communities and often turn into desperadoes, rebelling against their very own identities and circumstantial reality of being either a Christian, Hindu, Buddhist, Sikh, Atheist or as a Muslim.


Who decides anything?


Surely it is None but Almighty Allah!


Yet, we do have a choice.


Allah gives us a choice as to how we choose to live our life's but He doesn't just let us roam this world without a purpose.


The Most Gracious, Most Merciful One has sent to us countless prophets and messengers over the passage of Time.


It has been revealed how our Father, the blessed Prophet Adam Alaihis Salam came to be created by Almighty Allah, Our Supreme Master Creator and Lord above us all?

To those of us who studied Islamic Spiritualism @ Sufism, we came to learn of the spiritual origins of Mankind which started with Allah's Creation of Nur Muhammad @ The Light of Muhammad Sallallahu Alaihi Wassallam (May Peace be upon him).

I do not wish to elaborate in depth as to the details of such creation here for now but will just share with you as to the ensuing stages of our creation in a simple flow to enable you to have a fair idea as to what Islam has to share with you as to how human civilization came to be?

Those who have the time might want to read up as to the matter by visiting this site to have an idea as to what I am referring to here? Although I do believe the contents and context of what is being shared here, I wish to reiterate that I do not subscribe to the notion that one has to surrender oneself to hero worshiping any Sufi syaikh in order to gain access to the Mercy of Almighty Allah! Respect? Yes. Hero Worship or Over Adulate? No Sirree!

There is no provision or compulsion in Islam for us to venerate any human being or assign any Divinity to him or her. We are enjoined to obey and emulate the Blessed Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Alaihi Wassallam as our guide and teacher but we are not to worship him on par with Allah. 

This is to be understood as clearly as possible by any Muslim so as not to misinterpret that Muhammad ibni Abdullah has ever asked us his ummah to worship him in any manner whatsoever! He forbade the painting of his face or any attempt to idolize him in any manner. 

He called upon us his ummah to worship only Allah as our Supreme Lord and Master. He encouraged us to follow in his example and to love Allah Azza Wa Jalla as best as we humanly can and to love him as Allah's Messenger. 

There are many stages of understanding and knowledge that we have to learn and acquire in order to be able to appreciate what it is that we have inherited from our Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Alaihi Wassallam.

To understand Islam properly, one has to have the faculty of reason and the adequate intellectual capacity to be able to think, rationalize and conclude with regard to the physical and spiritual realities of our being here as humans and also be able to realize that there lives within our physical being a soul that has no physical form or that which we can grasp by our hands.

This living soul is what keeps us alive right now. This soul belongs to Allah, our Almighty God who keeps it a secret and Who has Absolute Control over it.

It is Allah Who created us and all other beings or creatures, living organisms, plants, insects, bacteria, etc.

We come to be and will soon be gone by the Will and Mercy of Allah, the Most Supreme Creator.

There are many who if asked about the Creation of Adam will not be able to explain how Mankind came to be? 

There are those who do not believe in Creation but instead fantasize that life started as a form of evolution starting from first being a tiny microbe, etc. You can read about Adam's Creation here.

Here's the corresponding Quranic revelation :


2:30
Transliteration
Wa-ith qala rabbuka lilmala-ikatiinnee jaAAilun fee al-ardi khaleefatan qalooatajAAalu feeha man yufsidu feeha wayasfiku addimaawanahnu nusabbihu bihamdika wanuqaddisu lakaqala innee aAAlamu ma la taAAlamoon
Sahih International
And [mention, O Muhammad], when your Lord said to the angels, "Indeed, I will make upon the earth a successive authority." They said, "Will You place upon it one who causes corruption therein and sheds blood, while we declare Your praise and sanctify You?" Allah said, "Indeed, I know that which you do not know."

Surah Al Baqarah Chapter 2 Verse 30.

Creation versus Evolution.

To this very day, more and more new discoveries are being made by researchers and scientists about this or that special aspect of our creation that had not been known before due to the coming up of new technologies that enables us to learn more about ourselves and that of our fellow creation by The Almighty. 

Knowledge comes from realization. Learning takes conscious effort and being able to understand the difference between fact and fiction. 

Scientists involved in the study of human biology are discovering more and more evidence that we can't just be the result of evolutionary changing of traits and characteristics subject to chance!

There has been tremendous improvements in the way we treat and cure our various illnesses and afflictions but all these are made possible by the intelligence and willingness to seek such cures and remedies that Allah imbued in us in the first place.

Yet despite all our advancements in life and in our acquiring sophisticated technologies and scientific discoveries, we all are in need of spiritual balance and a need to turn to our Supreme Creator for that special thirst for our internal peace of mind, both in body and spirit.

This is where Faith plays a major part in our well being.

Those who have no faith find no pleasure in living life and as a result at times choose to end their life in this earthly existence. Some try to drown their sorrows in drugs and alcohol. Such indulgence often destroys them gradually till they pass out overdosed and their internal organs are all messed up and finally drop dead!

Where's their salvation?

Not what they would have been looking for, right?

So, whether one likes it or not, in order to live a life that is balanced and be able to look forward to a future that is promised to us who choose to have faith in our Creator, we are enjoined to strive both in body and spirit to prepare for our hereafter.

This Earthly realm that we find ourselves in is but the 3rd stage of our existence, both in body and spirit. The 1st being the Realm of our Spirits @ Ruuh. 2nd stage of our being is in the Realm of our Mother's Womb. When we die and are interred in our grave, we enter the 4th Realm. This is the Realm of the Barzakh. The stage where our Spirit @ Ruuh will be questioned and interrogated by the Angels of the Grave, Sayyidina Munqar and Naqir Alaihis Salam. The 5th Realm is the Realm of the Akhirah @ the Hereafter.

The Realm where all mankind will be resurrected after Doomsday. When we will be made to stand before Allah, our Lord Almighty and answer for our deeds here on Earth.

If we are of those who have Faith in Him and had done what we are supposed to do solely for His Sake and not one who went against His Commandments, Insya Allah, we will be amongst those who attain Salvation and be entered into His Paradises. Failing which, we will burn in Hell.

Straight and simple.

I will write further on this but have to stop for now. 

Do not take this earthly life in vain. Here is where we prepare for our hereafter. There's a choice. You either believe in Allah or you don't.

Do not blame your father or mother or anybody else for your choice. If you can read and understand these words of mine, then you are capable of making that rational choice. 

Be a Muslim. Live as a Muslim. Die as a good Muslim. Insya Allah, you will be alright both here and in the hereafter.

May Allah bless and guide us all. Ameen.
