PAS : Practice the Surah An Nahl Verse 125 !
Assalamualaikum Warahmatullahi Ta'ala Wabarakatuh!
This post is dedicated to the leadership of Parti Islam SeMalaysia @ PAS.
As a Muslim here in Malaysia, naturally I am a supporter of PAS and in my heart will always continue to do so and pray that the leadership of PAS will learn to go about achieving the party's objectives in a practical , humble and moderate way. Insya Allah.
The thing is PAS has been struggling for nearly as long as we have achieved Independence from the British but still fails to understand that to be successful in it's aspirations to rule this nation, it has to gain the support of at least 51% of the Malaysian people.
I am a supporter of PAS all these while but there are some things I just have to get off my chest and share with the PAS leaders as to what I feel is stopping them from succeeding in the polls of this country save for the State of Kelantan Darul Naim, where they have a strong base.
Even then, do not take things for granted for in elections, anything can happen and the results can be quite surprising!
So, do not be lackadaisical in thinking that your rule over Kelantan is guaranteed and unshakable! May you continue progressing over there and expand to the other states as well but there are certain matters which the leadership has to address.
First and foremost is what I believe to be a major downfall of PAS's official mouthpiece @ HARAKAH!
HARAKAH since day one has only come to publish BAD NEWS as it's headlines. Has PAS no other things to share with it's readers except NEGATIVE things all the years since it's coming into being?
People do not like to read insults and accusations the first moment they come across any newspaper or magazine!
By fitrah, we human beings are imbued with the goodness of spirit and only the sick demented few love to look for gossips and pry into the faults and sins of others!!!
Everytime I come across the HARAKAH party newspaper, my heart is disturbed having to read bad news each and everytime . Really!
Does PAS want to be known as the 'Bad News Party'? Is there nothing worth celebrating and cherishing in life except to zoom into the UMNO butts?
Does PAS have no other vocation in life except to be nitpickers and try to look as if they are a hundred percent sinfree and so holy moly?
There are so many things that PAS can share with it's readers and silent supporters whom I know exist in the millions here in our nation but are put off by the insensitive manner by which PAS tries to champion it's cause!
The Malaysian people are not blind nor are they deaf or dumb either. Malaysians consist of all ethnicities and faith.
Most of us want to live in peace and harmony save for the crazy idiots found amongst us. These are the shit stirrers, rooting for trouble and spoiling for a fight! Damn idiots!
Each Malaysian in his or her heart will not deny the goodness that is found in the real teachings of Islam save for those who have yet to learn about it or have been fed the untruths about Islam by it's enemies and further frightened of the kind of Islam that PAS comes to be associated with by the Islamophobic mass media.
PAS needs to come to terms that it's approach all these years is not exactly right and that it needs to put to practice what Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala commands us Muslims as in the Surah An Nahl, Verse 125, Al Qur'an Al Kareem!
It's not that hard really to make some changes in the manner by which PAS wants to reach out to the Malaysian people.
All it needs to do is to really practice what Almighty Allah asks us to do in reaching out to our fellow mankind, irrespective of race or religion, and social status.
Having relocated to Jalan Raja Laut, in the midst of the 'sin city' in Central Kuala Lumpur and in a brand new building showing it's willingness to make changes and carry out it's operations from the infamous area of KL, shows that there is still room for the PAS leadership to make inroads into the people's hearts and minds.
Syabas! My heartiest congratulations to all those who made it possible. Now, all you have to do is to carry out what Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala Himself commands us to do.
Try changing your approach to the people by changing how you publish the HARAKAH newspaper and see the people coming closer to you.
Order all those firebrands who so love to instigate and castigate others especially against the UMNO folks to change their tone and tune and see for yourself how by being true Da'ee's, PAS can still be relevant to the future of Islam in this blessed nation, that is the home to so many multi ethnic, multi faithed Malaysians.
I can only say that if the PAS leadership take this advice to heart and make the necessary changes in their party's policies, success will only be part of the rewards that Ar Rahman will shower you with in the future! Insya Allah!
Wabillahi Taufeek Walhidayah. Wassalamualaikum Warahmatullahi Ta'ala Wabarakatuh!
