Part of the Do'a Iftitah

"Verily my solats, my ibadah, my life and my death I surrender to Almighty Allah, Creator and Lord of all the worlds. Never will I associate anything with Him. So am I commanded and I am of those who are Muslims."

Iran's President - Un'glamoured'. What a role model!

This is the President of the Islamic Republic of Iran!

A ruler of the Iranian people who is putting to practice what he preaches!

He is seen here praying by one of the roadsides of a highway in his country!

No fuss, no hordes of armed security guards, no shows of glamour, or demands for an airconditioned tent set up so that His Excellency, the President of Iran can perform his Solat to the Almighty God!

Can we ever imagine our Prime Minister or just any of the hundreds of politicians in power be willing to forgo any of their demanded luxuries and priviliges and just carry out their obligations to Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala as shown by President Ahmad Mahmoudinejad here?

Here is President Ahmad Mahmoudinejad eating plain bread, sitting crosslegged on the plain mat, as any other common citizen of Iran.

Do you recall the splurging feasts we see take place every now and then in our 'Malaysia Boleh'?

Malaysia's authorities ought to take as an example from the humble manners shown by Iran's President here and remember that no matter how high one goes up in power and position, the day and moment will come when one will be interred into the bowels of the Earth, called Al Qabr -the Grave!

Six feet by 3 feet, wrapped in plain cotton cloth, minus all the Darjah Darjah Kebesaran, Pangkat-pangkat, Kurnia Kurnia DiRaja, and all their earthly glories and titles!

The only title they will be called with is 'Allahyarham' or 'Arwah'!

May the Malaysian ruling elite ponder on this! Insya Allah! Kullu nafsin iza iqatul Maut!
