Yaum al Hisab ~ Day of Account. Have you pondered over it yet?


Riyadhus Salihin An Nawawi, Chapter 35 Hadith 283 Ibn ‘Umar reported that the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said, “All of you are guardians. Each of you is responsible for his flock.

An Amir is a guardian. A man is a guardian in respect of his family. The woman is a guardian in respect of her husband’s house and children. All of you are guardians and each of you is responsible for his flock.”

Sahih Bukhari ,Volume 3, Book 46, Number 733: Narrated ‘Abdullah bin ‘Umar: That he heard Allah’s Apostle saying, “Everyone of you is a guardian and is responsible for his charge; the ruler is a guardian and is responsible for his subjects; the man is a guardian in his family and responsible for his charges; a woman is a guardian of her husband’s house and responsible for her charges; and the servant is a guardian of his master’s property and is responsible for his charge.”

I definitely heard the above from the Prophet and think that the Prophet also said, “A man is a guardian of his father’s property and responsible for his charges; so everyone of you is a guardian and responsible for his charges.”

Sahih Muslim, Book 20, Hadith 4496 It has been narrated on the authority of Ibn ‘Umar that the Holy Prophet (May Peace be upon him) said: Beware, every one of you is a shepherd and every one is answerable with regard to his flock.

The Caliph is a shepherd over the people and shall be questioned about his subjects (as to how he conducted their affairs).

A man is a guardian over the members of his family and shall be questioned about them (as to how he looked after their physical and moral well-being).

A woman is a guardian over the household of her husband and his children and shall be questioned about them (as to how she managed the household and brought up the children).

A slave is a guardian over the property of his master and shall be questioned about it (as to how he safeguarded his trust).

Beware, every one of you is a guardian and every one of you shall be questioned with regard to his trust.

In the context of the authentic hadiths quoted above, it is important for each of us Mukmins @ Believers in Allah and His Blessed Messenger, Muhammad Sallallahu Alaihi Wassallam to take responsibility over those whom we are entrusted to protect and to see to their upkeep and wellbeing.

It makes no difference as to whether one is poor or wealthy. Each must see to the welfare of his or her charge. Live according to one's means and provide one's family with the best at his or her disposal.

Truly, Allah the Almighty and Most Merciful Knows our situation. He is The One Who Created us. Not an atom moves without His Consent and Will. Yet He gives us our Freedom of Choice.

Each of us is free to seek knowledge in order to be able to choose how to live? Lack of knowledge and making the wrong choices can leave us in a quandary as to how to solve our problems or needs?

Thus it is imperative that we choose the right faith to profess and to practice in order to attain the Salvation that Allah has provided for Mankind.

Islam is the Only Revealed Faith for all Mankind. 

Study the Creation of the Light of Muhammad Sallallahu Alaihi Wassallam and the Creation of our Father Adam Alaihis Salam and from Adam, the Creation of Sayyidatina Hawwa Radhiallahu Anha.

Adam Alaihis Salam was the First Believer @ Mukmin in the physical sense of being also the First Human Being created from earth taken by Sayyidina Izra'il Alaihis Salam, the most powerful Malaikat @ Angel of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala!

How could Adam be anything else but a Mukmin and a Muslim because it was Allah who created him up there in the highest levels of Jannahtul Firdaus @ Paradise?
A potter at work fashioning clay
It was Allahu Ta'ala Himself who fashioned our Father, the Prophet Adam Alaihis Salam with Allah's own hands!

Please refer to Surah Sa'ad Chapter 38 Verse 71:


38:71
Transliteration
Ith qala rabbuka lilmala-ikatiinnee khaliqun basharan min teen
Sahih International
[So mention] when your Lord said to the angels, "Indeed, I am going to create a human being from clay.

It was the Ruh @ Soul that was blown by Allah into the form of our Father Adam that brought Life to him. 

It was the Knowledge from Allah that was taught to Adam so as to enable him to know of things that even the Malaikats @ Angels did not know of that elevated Adam Alaihis Salam to be appointed as the Viceroy of Allah the Most Merciful here on Earth.

Remember too that if Allah did not have a masterplan to allow Adam Alaihis Salam and our Mother Hawwa Radhiallahu Anha to go against Allah's Commandment of not approaching and consequently eating of the fruit from the Forbidden Tree, all of us would not come to exist here on Earth for Adam Alaihis Salam and Hawwa Radhiallahu Anha would still be up there in the Heavens enjoying themselves.

Use our God given logic and Faculties of Reasoning!

For those of you who are capable of rational thought and do possess the powers of thinking, do not lay the blame entirely upon Satan @ the Devil either for causing Adam and Hawwa's downfall from grace.

Satan used to be known as Azazil, Chief of the Djinns. He was the most righteous of the Djinns @ Creatures created by Allah out of Fire.

How could Satan @ Azazil be allowed to be up there amongst the Malaikats if he was not a believer in Allah? A true worshiper of Ar Rahman?

Could any Kaffir be up there in the Jannah tul Firdaus without the Will and Consent of Allahu Ta'ala in the first place?

Without the Will and Consent of Allah allowing Azazil to not bow to Adam Alaihis Salam when commanded to by Allah for all those present in Jannah to prostrate before Adam, the whole chain of events leading to Azazil's @ Satan's ouster from Jannahtul Firdaus would not have taken place and I would not be here sharing this with you!

Hello???

We will not have come to exist here on Earth!

THINK!

This is what Allah the All Mighty wanted.

Not a Zarrah @ an Atom could move without Allah's Will!

Yet, here we are. 

The Children of Adam Alaihis Salam with all our varieties. Only a billion plus of the current human population professing to believe in Allah and His Messengers, His Malaikats, His Scriptures, His Qada and Qadr @ Destiny and in the Yaum al Qiyamat @ Doomsday!

Yet the records show how many of those who have come to learn about their birthright to be a Muslim are embracing Islam in droves!

Out of Ignorance and Egoism, the rest of Mankind have chosen to stray from Allah's Guidance @ Al Islam. 

Mankind is prone to be in Loss for it is in our genes. Study Surah Al-Asr here.

In Surah Al-Isra' (Chapter 17 Verse 25 Al Quran Al Karim http://quran.com/17/25 ) Allah tells us that He knows what is inside us and is Most Forgiving if we choose to repent and return to His Mercy.

I can keep going on and on my dear brothers and sisters, fellow Children of Adam Alaihis Salam about the Oceans of Mercy that Allah Azza Wa Jall has showeref upon us but only those of you who have it in you to think and to ponder as to all that I have shared here will come to accept that you too are but a servant and creation of Allah!


Not some product of chance or the fruit of some dang-fangled imagined deity of your own delusion!

A true human being is capable of much more than that!

Embrace Islam with reason and Insya Allah, you won't end up in Hellfire!

It's time for Sahur. 

Our meal before Fajr and the 2nd day of fasting in the Sacred and Holy Blessed month of Ramadhan, 1435 After Hijrah.

May Allah bless and accept our Saum @ Fast and cleanse us of our sins, committed knowingly or otherwise.

Only those in the Know will be able to digest all that I have shared this early morning.

Do not go blame Satan for your own screw-ups either for the First Ever Scapegoat and his offspring are all at the moment under lock and key in Hellfire.

Who can you blame for your sins committed during this blessed month if not your own self?

Think and be wise. Be a knowledgeable Muslim! There's no other alternative in these End Times.

Fee Amanillah!

Best regards from your brother in Islam,
Haji Zainol Abideen @ Mahaguru58.

Chow Kit Wet Market Revisited! Demolition in progress..



I visited the Chow Kit Wet Market after a long hiatus due to our eating out all these while!

Used to frequent the historical stinking wet market of Chow Kit located in the heart of Old Kuala Lumpur every other weekend before.

The hundred years old famous market is being razed to the ground for a new more conducive modern market to be built in its place.



Saw a couple of rats scampering away as the bulldozer went about its business of tearing the whole place down!

Those who were familiar with me expressed their surprise and delight in seeing me again and asked as to where I had disappeared to?



Told them that I have been busy and didn't have the luxury of frequenting the market as much as before.

Here are some snapshots I took this afternoon of the place.



This man sells fresh flowers and other produce that is usually used for traditional cleansing of one's spirits or the usual 'mandi bunga ritual' where Malays, Chinese and Indians take a bath to ward off evil spirits and charms cast upon them by their enemies.



A startled fruit trader caught browsing on his mobile phone. Reckon that he's an Indonesian from his looks. Chow Kit remains the much preferred area where Indonesians congregate here in Kuala Lumpur to seek their fortune.



After years and years of dim lit makeshift stalls and polluted drains giving rise to health concerns, the wet market finally comes to an end and in its place, a much more better infrastructure is promised to be constructed for the betterment of both traders and customers.



Even the transit wet market is so much more cleaner and well ventilated complete with rotating ceiling fans that help make market goers feel a bit more comfortable than what we had to face before. Alhamdulillah.


 While I was shopping for fresh fruits at the area outside there strode into view a very tall large sized Caucasian whom I promptly stopped and inquired as to his height? More than 6 feet tall, he towered above everyone else in the vicinity!

Came to learn that he is from the USA. Posed for this photo with him as a memento.

Posed at one of the remaining sundry shops at the Chow Kit wet market area.



Chinese shopkeeper still surviving despite the imminent destruction coming up.

Another trader still holding on to the hope that she will still be able to eke a living selling household materials. 



The cookies and other tidbits store with its lone customer.



Fake flowers anyone?



Spices galore.



End of an era. Treasure these photos. Something new is gonna come up!

PM Najib Razak melawat Presiden PAS Dato Seri Haji Abdul Hadi Awang di IJN! Ramadhan Mubarak bagi semua ahli UMNO & PAS!




Sempat melawat Dato' Seri Haji Abdul Hadi Awang di Institut Jantung Negara tengahari tadi. Alhamdulillah, kesihatan beliau bertambah baik.

Dato Seri Haji Mohd Najib bin Tun Abdul Razak
Presiden UMNO dan Perdana Menteri Malaysia

Demikian lah ucapan yang di terbitkan oleh PM Dato Seri Haji Mohd Najib bin Tun Abdul Razak di laman Facebook beliau.

Begini lah sepatutnya para pemimpin negara kita saling hormat menghormati di antara satu sama lain.

Ramadhan Mubarak to all Muslims of the world!


Assalamualaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh.

Most probably we will begin our 1st day of fasting in the blessed month of Ramadhan 1435 After Hijrah which falls on Sunday, the 29th of June 2014. Day after tomorrow. Insya Allah.

In conjunction with the coming of Ramadhan al Mubarak, I wish to ask for your forgiveness if I have wronged anyone of you dear readers in any way.

I pray that we will continue to be able to live in relative peace and harmony and that we will soon get a new more capable and firm leader. 

There has been many unhealthy incidents here in our beloved country due to his lackadaisical mishandling of the situations. The problem is that we have worse jackasses over in the Opposition. 

Have lost hope on any of the so called ulamaks here in this nation of ours because the fellas are cowards and live on government sponsorship thus eliminating any chances of speaking up for the Truth and nothing but the Truth! Apple Polishers Unlimited. Fact!

The Friday prayer sermon texts are all prepared in advance by the state religious departments where the Khatib just reads out whatever has been churned out by the government's bureaucracy. Thus, you can see lots of sleepyheads dozing off during the Friday Khutbah later past noon today.

We have had no water supply since yesterday and as usual SYABAS gives us the run of the mill excuse that this water treatment plant is down and so on.

The chaps over at the Ministry of the Environment have lost whatever little powers they had and every developer has been going full swing chopping down the trees and clearing the life giving water catchment areas of our Malay Peninsular's forests to build more and more housing areas and screwing up our nation's ecological system.

Don't bother complaining to Najib Razak! The fella is more akin to living with his head up above the clouds to bother with the suffering of the common citizens.

We can only ask for Divine Help in taking away these parasites ruining Malaysia and give us precious potable clean life giving water. Only to Allah can we ask for help! All others over here are asking for their cut. Their 10, 20 or 30%!

Such is what life here in Mamluk al Malaisie is all about!

Despite all these screw-ups, we are still alive. Thirsty and dry without water but still about to enter blessed Ramadhan.

Have a rewarding Ramadhan O Muslims!

Insya Allah!

Wassalamualaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh.

Punca Kristian semakin aktif dan sebab sebab kenapa Agama Islam semakin lemau di Malaysia?

Ihsan dari FB Aaron Aziz
Hakikat hari ini! Gereja Kristian ikhlas menyebarkan kefahaman karut mereka tetapi Ulamak Islam ramai yang memiliki EGO GILA BABUN dan kelakuan sombong dan bongkak mereka ini membawa kepada keadaan diri mereka menjauhi Ummah! 

Dah lama saya dok tegor perkara ini bahawa segala Mufti dan Ketua Jabatan Agama kena turun ke khalayak orang ramai mengajar tentang Islam sebenar TETAPI MEREKA SIBUK MENGAMPU PEMERINTAH yang berterusan alpa dengan tugas dan tanggung jawab mereka! 

Ramai di kalangan Khatib membaca teks khutbah yang di sediakan kerajaan! Berkhutbah dengan nada suara marah marah dan mengherdik jamaah bukan meraikan kehadiran mereka ke masjid2 Allah.

AJK Masjid berlagak seolah mereka tuanpunya rumah2 Allah dan membuatkan orang ramai menjauhi masjid! Ini lah punca kelemahan umat Islam hari ini di Malaysia.

Ini adalah di antara punca mengapa umat Islam hadir ke masjid secara terpaksa kerana barangsiapa yang gagal hadir ke Solat Jumaat tiga kali berturut turut di anggap telah terbatal syahadahnya.


Bila ketua ketua Agama Islam gagal menjalankan tanggungjawab mereka maka nya ummah yang dahagakan kepimpinan Islam mudah di pengaruhi mereka yang berkepentingan politik dan mahukan kuasa.

Matlamat menghalalkan cara!

Demi kedudukan sementara di dunia ini, ramai di kalangan ahli ahli politik UMNO, PAS dan PKR berjuang untuk memajukan diri sendiri.

Mereka lebih gemar bergaduh sesama sendiri dari bergabung tenaga dan kuasa untuk memperjuang dan mempertahankan Islam. Mana pernah ketiga kelompok ini bersatu mempertahankan Islam? 

PAS dengan PKR sanggup bersekongkol dengan musuh musuh Islam seperti DAP untuk menjahanamkan UMNO!

Bukannya mereka mahu nak duduk semeja tegur menegur nasihat menasihati demi kebaikan bersama. Jadi masaalah masaalah begini masih berterusan dan keutuhan ummah semakin hari semakin lemah.

Pihak pihak Kristian dan LGBT tahu akan kelemahan ini dan mereka terus masuk mengambil kesempatan menyebarkan doktrin mereka di kalangan Melayu Muslim yang tengah keliru dan dahagakan kasih sayang.

Sungguh! Orang kita ketandusan perhatian dan kasih sayang dari para ketua dan pemimpin pemimpin negara yang selalunya tak ambil peduli akan keperluan emosi dan rohani ini. Kristian menggunakan kaedah menabur budi bersulamkan kasih sayang begi memikat hati golongan yang memerlukan ini.

Kita sering membaca tentang anak anak muda dan remaja yang menjadi mangsa salah laku seksual kerana cepat percaya dan yakin dengan sesiapa sahaja yang menggunakan laman Facebook dan media sosial lain untuk menjalinkan perhubungan dengan mereka ini yang ketandusan perhatian dari ibubapa serta ahli keluarga mereka.


Maka pemangsa pemangsa ini yang sudah lama menjalankan kegiatan begini mudah mempengaruhi jiwa jiwa lara ini dan mengajak si mangsa keluar. Nak makan minum dan berjalan jalan. Silap haribulan kena ngap dan di kerjakan bergilir gilir. Esok keluar kat surat khabar dan media maya. Ini realiti.

Walau di Negeri Kelantan yang di gelarkan sebagai 'Serambi Mekah' dan sudah di bawah perintah PAS serta Mursyidul Am mereka Nik Aziz, kita selalu dengar akan nasib budak budak perempuan Melayu di sana yang menjadi ratahan musang2 berjanggut! Takkan lupa dengan kes rogol bergilir gilir terkini di sana? Bukan budak Cina! Bukan India! Melayu juga!

Semua ini berpunca dari kesilapan orang orang Melayu terutama pihak pihak berkuasa agama dan kerajaan. Bila pihak berkuasa tak ambil pot tentang keperluan keperluan emosi dan rohani masyarakat umum maka ini lah natijahnya!

Masaalah ini semakin meruncing dengan ada nya ahli politik seperti Nurul Izzah dari PKR tumpang sekaki mengeluarkan pendapat merapu nya :


Nurul Izzah mungkin terbawa bawa dengan semangat mahu sehati sejiwa dengan rakan rakan Pakatan Pembangkang nya sehingga terkeliru akan hakikat bahawa bila seseorang itu sudah mengucap dua kalimah syahadah dan mengaku beriman terhadap Allahu Rabbul Alamin tak adanya ruang untuk ia bertukar akidah pergi menyembah sesuatu selain dari Allah!

Islam bukan lah sesuatu serupa menjadi ahli kelab riadah. Boleh nak tukar tukar keahlian mengikut sesuka hati!

Nurul Izzah perlu mendalami lagi ajaran Islam sebenar terutamanya bab Tauhid! Mari lah kita mendoakan nya agar mendapat Taufik dan Hidayah Allah! Amin Ya Rahman! Amin Ya Rahim!

Realiti nya sudah ada beberapa kes dimana anak anak muda Melayu yang lemah iman sudah murtad dari Ad Deenul Islam! 

Di bawah ini saya paparkan satu 'screenshot' perbincangan di Facebook di antara seorang ibu yang merayu anak nya untuk kembali ke pangkal jalan tetapi anak nya degil tetap mahu tinggalkan Islam!


Saya dapat imej ini dari carian Google. Nurul Izzah patut muhasabah diri nya melihat kes ini. Apakah ini yang ia mahu?

Umat Islam Malaysia harus juga sedar akan bahaya kefahaman pluralisma yang di bawa oleh anasir anasir luar seperti pelakon Hindi ini:


Kesan dari pemujaan terhadap para selebriti seperti aktor Bollywood Shahrukh Khan yang syirik terhadap Allah secara terang terangan harus di cantas segera dengan menyebarluaskan pendedahan ini! Saksikan video berikut:


Seorang lagi pelakon Bollywood Salman Khan telah di rakam turut ikut serta didalam pemujaan dewa tokong Hindu dan telah di fatwakan sebagai murtad oleh pihak berkuasa Agama Islam di India:


Kita harus mengimbas kembali akan realiti yang sedang kita hadapi sekarang.

Pihak pihak yang menunggu untuk mengambil kesempatan ke atas umat Islam ini tak akan membuang masa! Setiap ketamadunan yang terbilang di zaman dahulu tumbang kerana perhubungan di antara pihak kerajaan dan rakyat jelata semakin renggang.

Pihak yang konon nya mewakili hal ehwal Islam di dalam negara kita ternyata sudah jauh dari masyarakat umum Muslim Malaysia. Keangkuhan sesetengah dari kalangan bijak pandai ulamak Islam didalam negara kita membawa kepada penjauhan umat Islam dari panduan dan bimbingan mereka.

Bagaikan bebiri yang terpisah dari kumpulan nya, mudah menjadi mangsa serigala serigala di luar sana yang hanya menunggu untuk membaham mangsa nya!

Siapa nak tolong?

Pihak berkuasa Agama Islam Malaysia elok lah sedar diri dan lakukan sesuatu bagi menyekat kerapuhan akidah yang sedang berlaku sekarang dan jangan berterusan dengan budaya kerja sambil lewa seperti biasa.

Halal, Haram,Was Was ~ The Malaysian Muslims Dilemma!

Assalamualaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh!

Dear brothers and sisters in Islam.

Lately, we have witnessed the flip flopping stand of those who hold official government positions and authority concerning the Islamic Affairs over us, the general Malaysian Muslim public.

As far as I know, the Non Muslims are free to do as they please in this country where no one bothers to oversee what they eat, drink or practice in their daily life's!

We who are Muslims however are constantly under the watchful eyes of the 'holier than thou's' ruling over us. The problem is that these so called overseers themselves are wont to cross the line when it comes to partying or hold exclusive shindigs at their palatial mansions and private residences.

To us, who are the general public, we don't bother to pry into their affairs and mind our own business, so to speak for it concerns us not as to how those fancy lifestyle of the bloody rich and infamous spend their life behind closed doors and high walls.



But recently, the nation was shell shocked to learn that the delicious Cadbury Chocolates which every Tom, Dick or Harry or in our case, Ahmad, Ah Seng and Samy had been indulging upon every other day was found to contain traces of Porcine DNA! 

Porcine as in PIG lah brothers!

Fuyoo! Everyone started to put on a show of wanting to throw up, etcetera!

Hehehehehe.. Who the hell are we kidding, eh?

After munching through uncountable bars and nuggets of those Cadbury chocolates, everyone now wants to pretend of being unwillingly contaminated by the consuming of pork tainted foodstuff?

Hohohohoho.. Malaysians are such drama kings and queens!



We have so many cases before us where people indulge in haram and forbidden acts but carry on as if those are no big deals but when it comes to foodstuff throw up a tantrum and act as if they are so holy moly! :P

Corruption + Gambling + Alcoholism + Fornication / Adultery + etcetera :



Most people would not waste a second stuffing themselves full of free stuff whenever it is offered at the various feasts and open houses every now and then by those who can afford to do so!

Many a times we have witnessed the average Malaysian crowd go crazy carrying away spilled items or goods from an overturned trailer or lorry on our highways! 


Picture courtesy of luf-kin.blogspot.com
Now to those people especially if they are Muslims, the first thing they ought to take into consideration before pillaging the goods of others is whether it is right for them to do so in the first place?


Picture courtesy of Utusan Malaysia
If the items are foodstuff, where does it say in the Qur'an or Hadiths that it is alright to take and consume things that are not ours rightfully by way of purchase or grown by us?

The people here in Malaysia have a nasty habit of saying ' Rezeki dari Allah!'!

Hello???

Since when did Allah say it is alright for you to gulp down items that you haven't paid for or has been given to you?

When you eat and consume forbidden items, don't they turn into your blood which in turn becomes haram as a result of your eating items that you stole or took without permission?

They made a real drama out of the pig DNA in the Cadbury chocolates but have no qualms in taking things that are not halal for them by gleefully robbing the owners of goods or items that get spilled over on our highways in the cause of a traffic accident!



Such misguided fools!

When one consumes something that is not lawful, then just be ready to face the retributions of Hellfire!

Yes sirree! You don't get to escape by saying that since it is going to be spoilt if we don't take it now, why let it go to waste?

It all boils down to how righteous you are? Just because something can go bad if not consumed immediately or soon, that does not allow us to go take things that are not ours in the first place by way of rightful purchase or acquisition!

Many an idiot goes round doing things that are forbidden in Islam but attributes it to being a gift from God etcetera!

We who are Muslims ought to know our faith in depth not just assume this or that to be alright. We are human beings. Capable of thought and reasoning. We can't profess to be Mukmins if we do not know the truth about our religion!

Yes, Islam can be so simple as to declare that there is no God but Allah and that Muhammad is the last and greatest of all the prophets and messengers of Allah!

That is fine for establishing the bedrock of faith in Islam but there are so many other aspects of our religion that one has to take into consideration, learn about our faith and put them to practice.

I can guarantee you that if we were to go and ask any Muslim on the street today to define what Islam is and what it is not, chances are that the person will not be so quick to give us any absolute or clear answers!

Reason being that most Muslims today take Islam for granted and many just wing it in the hope that Allah will forgive and accept them as they are?

In a way they may be right for Allah is Most Compassionate and Most Merciful but is there any guarantee that such a thing might just happen?

What if Allah doesn't forgive the said individual for taking His Religion so lightly?

Didn't Allah give us a brain to think with? Eyes to see? Ears to hear with? All our other sensory to help us make our decisions with regards to the matters concerning our life, here on Earth?

How can we simply assume that it will be alright?

'Aah! Others have done worse things than me! It's okay! Allah will forgive me!'

These are the kind of thoughts that most dimwits come up with every now and then.

In the matter of the said to be tainted Cadbury chocolates, so many NGO's and the likes threw up a tantrum and wailed for blood! Some even wanted to go burn down the Cadbury manufacturing plants!

Little do they realize that there are many other more serious matters that are polluting the ummah and causing much more severe damage to society in the long run.

Ignorance about the basic principles and elements of Islam in our daily lives.

How many Muslims today know the truth about our faith?

Even so called Muslim leaders especially those in PAS have no qualms in joining the Disbelievers in paying homage to the corpses of dead Kaffir's and bow down to the remains in subjugation, forgetting the do's and don'ts of our religion!

Obeisance should only be to Allah! None other! Straight and simple. Yet these kopiah wearing fellows do not hesitate for a moment in kowtowing to the remains of those who were so adamant in their opposition to the setting up of an Islamic State or the upholding of Allah's Sharia Laws here in Malaysia!

Apart from that, there is so much corruption and wrong doing being carried out by the likes of those religious wolves masquerading under sheepskin so to speak that at times boggles our minds in thinking how the hell can they do that and still escape persecution?

What happened to the funds collected for the Memali victims?

To date, there are still many unanswered questions as to where such funds disappeared to?

Many a high ranking government official or leader who has been implicated in fraud and graft still live their life free from persecution and as if they are the Untouchables! 

Untouchable by law, that is! Not equating them to the suffering Dalits of India!

Generally, the Malay Muslims of Malaysia are those who want to be as conforming to the faith as they can be but at times, what they do and what they preach can be so opposite to each other that it is perplexing to the Chinese and Indians here as to what kind of Islam are these people practicing?

As is usual in the media, only the wrongs committed by the Malays get headline attention! Whatever good done by them gets lost in the translation and no one bothers about that.

Only the bad aspects get everyones attention and it is that negativity that is plastered unto the Malay Muslim ummah of Mamluk al Malaisie!

Malaysia's Muslims need to buck up and get to really learn about their religion of Al Islam.

Our nation's leaders and rulers must practice what they tend to preach and live more modest lives!

Their tendency to call for one thing and do the exact opposite will come to haunt them soon. 

Those who hold authority over us especially in matters concerning our religion must first show that they too are not above board and be humble enough to come down from their high offices and guide the people.

They must really be sincere in wanting to lead others to the Truth and not put up a show of being holier than thou!

If they can clean up their act and implement the true Sharia Laws of Allah starting from their offices and eventually leading up all the way to the corridors of power in Putrajaya, then the confusion about the halal and haram or was was here in Malaysia will eventually come to and end and we will, Insya Allah have a truly blessed, bountiful nation we can all be proud of and live in lasting harmony.

Psst! Note that I didn't use the word 'everlasting'. This life on Earth now is just temporary. The only everlasting life we can count upon is the Yaum al Akhirat! Which is the Ever After.

Insya Allah.

Salam Nisfu Sya'aban kepada sekelian Mukminin wal Mukminat, Muslimin wal Muslimat!

Nisfu Syaaban (Nisf bermaksud separuh) adalah peristiwa hari ke-15 dalam bulan Syaaban tahun Hijrah. Umat Islam mempercayai yang pada malam Nisfu Syaaban, amalan akan dibawa naik oleh Malaikat untuk ditukar dengan lembaran amalan yang baru setelah setahun berlalu. Pengertian am Nisfu Syaaban dalam bahasa Arab bererti setengah. Nisfu Syaaban bererti setengah bulan Syaaban. Malam Nisfu Syaaban adalah malam ke-15 Syaaban iaitu siangnya 14 haribulan Syaaban.

Malam Nisfu Syaaban merupakan malam yang penuh berkat dan rahmat selepas malam Lailatul Qadar. Sayyidatina Aisyah Radhiallahu Anha meriwayatkan bahawa Nabi Sallallalahu Alaihi Wassallam tidak tidur pada malam itu sebagaimana yang tersebut dalam sebuah Hadis yang diriwayatkan oleh Imam Al-Baihaqi Radhiallahu Anhu :

“Rasulullah S.A.W telah bangun pada malam (Nisfu Syaaban) dan bersembahyang dan sungguh lama sujudnya sehingga aku fikir beliau telah wafat. Apabila aku melihat demikian aku mencuit ibu jari kaki Baginda S.A.W dan bergerak. Kemudian aku kembali dan aku dengar Baginda S.A.W berkata dalam sujudnya, “Ya Allah aku pohonkan kemaafanMu daripada apa yang akan diturunkan dan aku pohonkan keredhaanMu daripada kemurkaanMu dan aku berlindung kepadaMu daripadaMu. Aku tidak dapat menghitung pujian terhadapMu seperti kamu memuji diriMu sendiri".

Setelah Baginda S.A.W selesai sembahyang, Baginda berkata kepada Sayyidatina Aisyah Radhiallahu Anha “Malam ini adalan malam Nisfu Syaaban. Sesungguhnya Allah Azza Wa Jalla telah datang kepada hambanya pada malam Nisfu Syaaban dan memberi keampunan kepada mereka yang beristighfar, memberi rahmat ke atas mereka yang memberi rahmat (membuat amal makruf dan nahi munkar) dan melambatkan rahmat dan keampunan terhadap orang-orang yang dengki.”

Hari Nisfu Syaaban adalah hari dimana buku catatan amalan orang-orang Muslimin selama setahun diangkat ke langit dan diganti dengan buku catatan yang baru. Catatan pertama yang akan dicatatkan dibuku yang baru akan bermula sebaik sahaja masuk waktu Maghrib (waktu senja), (15 Syaaban bermula pada 14 haribulan Syaaban sebaik sahaja masuk waktu Solat Maghrib)

Nabi Muhammad s.a.w. menggalakkan umatnya untuk bangun malam dan berjaga serta beriktikaf sepanjang malam kerana tidak mahu amalan diangkat dalam keadaan tidur atau lalai.
