Hudud Laws of Islam - An Introduction to the Criminal Code of Allah
Assalamualaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh.
I believe it is high time that a Muslim Blogger like me share with my readers especially with those amongst you who are Non Muslims and also with my fellow Muslims who do not know yet the implications of ignoring the true Syariah Laws of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala and all these years have sort of swallowed hook, line and sinker of all misleading fears about the Hudud Laws of Islam.
I won't blame you because our authorities on Islamic Affairs all these while have failed in actual practice to carry out interactive, down to earth Islamic Information activities to the whole of our Malaysian society.
Maybe, it has been so because of the suffocating red tape and bureaucracy restrictions that almost always ask for 'Where's your CERTIFICATE' and 'SURAT TAULIAH' approved and passed together with the SEAL of APPROVAL from the most learned 'Scholars of Islam' from the highest Universities of Islamic Jurisprudence and so and so?
Well, excuse me!.... for not giving a hoot as to all their bloody excuses and foolhardiness in denying the masses the morsels of Truth of Islam that if wanted to can be obtained so very easily from the Holy Al-Qur'an Al Karim, Allah's Final Testament to all Mankind and from the Hadith's of His Last Messenger to all Mankind as well, the Blessed Prophet and Greatest Messenger of Allah, our Lord and Creator!
The present state of Islamophobia warrants me as a Caller to Islam on my part as a Servant of Allah, God Most Compassionate, Most Merciful, to do my bit for the Truth of Islam to be shared here with you as to what the Hudud Laws of Islam are and why these Laws must be put to practice in their entirety according to what Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala has decreed and NOT as what we have here being touted as the Syariah Laws of our nation.
I do not subscribe to any other Divine Laws except those revealed by my Creator when it is incumbent upon myself and my fellow Muslims as 'Abdillah's'. Abdillah means 'Servants of Allah'.
Each and everyone of us are amongst the Creations of Allah. It is He who gave us life and all that we have today , our bodies, our sensory organs, our capabilities, etcetera , all through His Mercy.
Yet there are so many today who deny Him and His Laws either out of sheer ignorance or as a result of their blind arrogance and overwhelmed by their ego's!
This start of my series of articles on Hudud is intended to shed some light upon the Laws of Allah that He commands us Believers in Him to put to practice and rule accordingly.
* This message is directed to all Non Muslims reading this.
"You must know about the Hudud Laws of Islam as you are also a creation of Allah, no matter that you are today a Kaffir @ an Unbeliever in Allah because you have been born as such.
It is up to you, as a free human being to choose to learn and study about these True Laws of Allah, as a source of knowledge and information about what they truly are and not be misled anymore about them based on what you have read or been fed by those who have an agenda to keep you in the dark about the Truth of Islam as revealed to us by our Lord and Creator."
In the verse above from the Surah Al Ahzab, Chapter 33 Verse 36 of the Holy Qur'an, Almighty Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala reprimands us :
" It is not fitting for a Believer, man or woman, when a matter has been decided by Allah and His Messenger to have any option about their decision: if any one disobeys Allah and His Messenger, he is indeed on a clearly wrong Path".
The above Commandment of Allah the Almighty God and Creator of us all is so crystal clear as to warn us Muslims NOT to have any options when deciding about anything especially where it concerns upholding justice and implementing the due punishments as decided by Almighty Allah and His Messenger, the Blessed Messenger of Allah, Muhammad ibni Abdullah, Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam.
The Hudud Laws are the Criminal Code of Allah SWT as revealed in His Supreme Constitution in the Holy Qur'an to all Mankind.
The Hudud Laws are a part of the Islamic Syariah of Allah that are compulsory upon us Muslims and must be upheld, put to practice and ruled according to without any modifications or reduced in their subscribed implementations by each Muslim, male and female. More so by those upon whom have been given the authority to rule over the Muslims. Period.
The Syariat of Islam is ordained by Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala Himself and is perfect and complete in its entirety as well as suitable to be implemented through Time and in all nations or situations.
Allah's Will transcends the passage of Time and fits the requirements of society to a 'T' and when comprehended in true understanding as to why He who creates us orders such and such rulings and codes of justice to be meted out to its transgressors, will come to understand and fully appreciate why the Hudud Laws are as such?
Just reflect on the state of affairs here in our country and how society todays lives in fear and uncertainty due to the sidelining of the True Laws of Allah, our God Almighty and as a result of mankind's refusal to judge according to the exact Code of Allah SWT as per the Hudud Laws of the Islamic Syariah, we see crimes go unpunished and criminals left to do as they please and return to commit more and more vicious crimes upon the weak and ignorant masses as a result of the apathy and irresponsible manner of the authorities of today to uphold and put to practice the True Hudud Laws of Allah!
Allah SWT knows the true nature of us, human beings, whom He created and knows best as to how to deal with us, and revealed to us, His Manual as to how to live our lives and how to deal with those who commit crimes and prescribe the right and correct punishments so as to be a prohibitive and effective remedy to cure all the social ills that mankind commits upon ourselves.
Those who think that the Hudud Laws are outdated and not fit to be implemented upon society today, please take a look at today's newspapers or surf the internet and see for yourselves as to whether the vicious crimes being perpetrated upon innocents like the late Nor Suzaily Mokhtar, the dead and exploded Altantuya Shaariibuu, the raped and sodomised and murdered UTAR student Tang Lai Meng, the butchered Goh Yoke Seng , and hundreds of thousands of similar victims over the years, have been given due justice according to man's screwed up laws or could be better punished through the Hudud Laws of Islam?
Vicious crimes like gang rapes take place almost daily here in this nation, yet the most that these animals will get are a jail term and a few strokes of the cane whilst the victims dies in their heart and soul and live in trauma for the rest of their earthly life or are even killed and burnt as Canny Ong suffered whilst the killer or killers sport a skull cap ( if the bastard was a Muslim) and put up a show of being an 'alim' when in reality they are the bloody 'zalim's, and plead innocence for their lapse of judgment during their criminal acts!
Innocent people are being hounded by vicious criminals such as loan sharks and terrorized daily be threats, acts of violence and some even get killed in the process or are raped by the criminals who at times get away with murder.
All the human rights activists who at times speak in defense of the murderous bastards now will realize their mistake only when they experience such vicious crimes personally themselves or have it happen to a loved one!
I want to see what any of those human rights activists are going to do when they get raped, hurt or assaulted by the scum of our society whom they 'love' so much and go all out to nag the authorities or even the police when the police kick the ass of those criminals in the police lock ups?
Time has a way of proving to mankind over and over again as to why they must not try to ignore the Laws of Allah and instead try to be a recalcitrant and come up with their own misconstrued interpretations of laws which have again and again proved ineffective to deal with crime.
The Hudud Laws of Islam are the only effective laws fit to be used against any criminal amongst us today. Failure to rule with the Hudud will only see our nation go from bad to worse in time and eventually lawlessness will break out and the whole ignorant society come to taste its dues!
I end this introduction with a promise to write in detail what Hudud prescribes in the following articles. Insya Allah.
I pray that you and your loved ones be safe from harm and be protected by Allah SWT. Amin.
Wabillahi Taufik Wal Hidayah. Wassalamu Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh.
