United Muslims National Organization - Possible?
Assalamualaikum Warahmatullahi Ta'ala Wabarakatuh!
Dear Muslims of Malaysia,
The time has come for us to close ranks and unite under just ONE organization to take care of the affairs and future of ISLAM in Malaysia.
UMNO and PAS need to put aside their differences and come together as one under the banner of Islam.
Why continue this ongoing cold war between two of the largest Malay Muslim political parties when they know that if they come together as one , they will be one major kick ass political entity that will be able to safeguard the position and status of Islam in this Malaysian soil?
As long as we are divided by petty quarrels and squabbles over a matter that is precious to both parties which is the upholding of true Islamic values and principles, we will see more and more cases such as the recent apostasy issue continue to eat away at our hearts and souls.
Personally speaking, I think that we are all so caught up in useless racial divides when race doesn't really matter to us in the context of living our life's here in Malaysia.
Religion is what we all feel so strongly about save for a few nincompoops who don't adhere to any. Why should we waste even a second arguing with such folks who only love to debate endlessly with no end to their madness?
We have Malays, Chinese, Indians, Punjabis, Orang Asli's, Caucasians, etc who are Muslims.
Same goes for Christians who have more around the same mix of ethnicities subscribing to their beliefs.
Taoists are mostly Chinese. Buddhists are comprised of the Chinese majority, Ceylonese and some Caucasians.
Hindus comprise mostly Indians, Indonesian Balinese Malays, and some Westerners.
Sikhism is reserved for just Punjabis.
Islam is universal and for us here in Malaysia, we have all the ethnicities embracing it.
The Christians can come together and have their own major coalition of parties and stand as one.
The Buddhists should unite under one major body that will safeguard their rights.
Hindus in the MIC, PPP, IPF all unite as one body and take care of their interests.
We will be able to have a nation where religion rules as it should and not just squabble endlessly about racial issues which are a major waste of time and something that really doesn't matter before God Almighty!
When we die, the Malaikat's are not gonna be bothered whether we are from UMNO, PAS, MCA, MIC, DAP, PKR or whatever race based party?
We will be judged based on our deeds and our faith in God. That's the real deal about how things are. All these earthly racial strife comes to naught before God. Would you all agree?
Hence, my desire to see UMNO and PAS be big hearted enough to see that they both stand to only gain more from forgiving and forgetting the past squabbles they have had and be gentlemen enough to embrace each other with the spirit of 'Ikhwanul Muslimin'.
Tun Dr.Mahathir Mohamad and the late PAS President Allahyarham Datuk Ustaz Fadzil Noor could sit together side by side and jointly state their positions about the Palestinian issue at Dewan Bahasa dan Pustaka before.
What makes it so hard for the UMNO President , Dato Seri Abdullah Haji Ahmad Badawi and PAS President Dato Seri Tuan Guru Haji Abdul Hadi Awang to do just that, for the sake of the solidarity and future of the Muslims in this nation?
I know that there will be some sort of reluctance on the part of office bearers of both parties to give way and sacrifice their individual high positions for which they have struggled to attain all their life's but the challenges being made against Islam by certain elements lately raises concern to us Muslims who want this divide between UMNO and PAS to be closed and forged as one, from now till forever.
It's not easy for politicians to sacrifice personal achievements and positions but the two major Malay Muslim political organizations need to sit together and see where they can co-operate and work together to safeguard Ad Deen ul Haqq from those who are conspiring against it.
Possible within our lifetime? Wallahu 'Alam Bissawab.
May Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala give us all His Taufeek and Hidayah to see this take place.
Ameen Ya Rabbal Alameen.
