UMNO @ United Muslims National Organisation ?

Bismillahirrahmannirrahim.

Assalamualaikum warahmatulillahi ta'ala wabarakatuh!

May Peace and the Blessings of Almighty Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala be upon the Mukmins and Mukminats reading this and the Guidance and Mercy of Ar Rahman be upon my fellow Malaysians of other faiths! Ameen Ya Rabbal Alameen.

Yesterday, the UMNO Kelantan's Representative to the UMNO General Assembly voiced out his desire and those of his state's UMNO members to see the long going political enmity and strife between UMNO and PAS come to an end soon and both Malay based political parties to mend fences and unite as one entity representing the Malaysian Malays as a whole once and for all!

His impassioned pleas and heartfelt rendering of the message from UMNO Kelantan touched each and every Malaysian Malay Muslim heart and I am sure that both UMNO and PAS members nationwide could relate as to what he was asking for in their hearts and souls!

Instead of harping on just race based politics, I for one feel it is high time for the Malays to come together as one under the banner of one party!

I propose naming this party as the ' United Muslims National Organisation' still known as UMNO but no longer just stuck on to the race card!

I mean even today as we speak, the members of UMNO are no longer based purely on the Malay ethnicity alone!

The ethnicities in today's UMNO are so clearly no longer Malays as we know them. There are all kinds of ethnicities all claiming to be a Malay whereas their facial features, skin color, even the shapes of their noses or faces aren't exactly that to which we can define to be real Malays!

Datuk Haji Md Alwi Hj Md Ishak, made his plea to all in the UMNO General Assembly and also to all those watching the proceedings live on Astro's Channel 94 exclusive broadcasting on nationwide satellite television, asking for both UMNO and PAS to unite as one Ummah, one party that will bring all the Malays together as one entity!

UMNO @ United Malays National Organisation and PAS @ Parti Islam SeMalaysia if they come together will become the largest political party in the nation's history!

All the Malays, Indian Muslims, Chinese Muslims, Orang Asli's, Sabahans, Sarawakians, and all others who are now in UMNO and in PAS, KIMMA, etcetera will by virtue of their being fellow Muslims be more stronger united in one faith and develop the 'quwwah' of the Ummah of old, again!

No longer need the Ummah be divided by race based policies such as today but forge a stronger more cohesive union of their hearts and minds!

It's much more better to place into their proper priorities and as to what is more important in this world and in the hereafter!

What are the Malays fighting for? Is it not to preserve their rights and their claim to this land?

Datuk Hj Mohd Alwi stressed in his speech that there are 5 things that the Malays will never allow anyone to touch or disturb !
  1. The Malay Sultans and their Sultanates
  2. Islam the Faith of the Malays and others
  3. Bahasa Melayu @ Malay Language
  4. Adat @ Malay Customs
  5. Tanahair @ Malay motherland
His speech is being televised over and over again as it is one of the most memorable delivery of speeches ever in this year's UMNO General Assembly!

Will his wish and I am sure the same wish of all of us Malaysian Muslims irrespective of ethnic origins come to be a reality?

Will UMNO mature itself to be as what Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala and His Messenger, Muhammad Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam are asking of us to unite as one under one banner?

The banner being none other but 'La ila ha ill lall lahh ; Muhammad darr Rasulullah!'.

United Muslims National Organisation. The dream of all rational minded Muslims. Insya Allah!
