Hero-worshipping of the leadership in Malaysia. A deplorable sin!
If there is one major achievement of the current powers that be running Malaysia, it must surely be the sick culture of unnecessary hero worshiping of the person in the position of being the Prime Minister of the Kingdom of Malaysia.
I am not saying that one must disrespect the current leader of the Malaysian Government but as a Muslim who believes in Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala and subscribes to the teachings of the Last Messenger of Almighty Allah, the Blessed Muhammad al Mustafa, Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam, I do not think that its good for the country and especially the Muslims of Malaysia to forget the ruling of our Prophet Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam from indulging in any forms of hero worshiping the leader of government or any other body of authority!
There are numerous authentic hadith's of the Prophet Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam which forbids the over praising of any one individual including even himself.
One example is this :
1790. Hammam ibn al-Harith reported that a man began to praise 'Uthman and al-Miqdad went and knelt on his knees and began to throw pebbles in his face, 'Uthman said to him, 'What are you doing?'
He said, 'The Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said, "When you see praisers, then throw dust in their faces."[Muslim]
I wonder if Zainuddin Maidin @ the Minister of Information and Chief Adulator of Prime Minister Abdullah Badawi and his Deputy Chief Adulator ministerial colleague Rais Yatim @ Minister of Culture are ready to be pelted with pebbles or have their faces smashed with earth or dust as what Rasulullah Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam calls us to mete out to folks like them as apt treatment for their unabashed ass kissing and groveling before the Prime Minister of Malaysia, who seems to revel in their overpraising of him?
It is disliked to praise someone to his face as it is feared that it will cause him to be arrogant and forget himself.
The way these fellows are going overboard in their ass kissing and hand kissing of the Malaysian Prime Minister will only lead to the Chief Civil Servant of this nation to be big headed and imagine himself to be what he is definitely not!
All prior promises to be on the path of Al-Ghazali will come to nothing and our fellow citizen of Malaysia in the person of Abdullah Badawi will be in danger of following Al-Iblis Laknatullah in his pride!
Iblis Laknatullah refused to bow to Adam Alaihisalam when commanded by Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala Himself for a reason!
Iblis Laknatullah won't submit himself to none other than Allahu Rabbi even when commanded by Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala Himself!
That speaks volumes of the Accursed One in NOT wanting to show respect to any other but Almighty Allah Himself!
Even the so called Devil refuses to kowtow to anyone or anything but Almighty Allah but here we have our ministers and those alike them groveling and kowtowing to another ordinary human being!
What does that tell you about the credibility and integrity of such folks IF they even merit any recognition of being leaders of the Muslims?
I for one have stopped calling anyone by their honorifics because to me those individuals are mostly pretentious ones more akin to self worshiping deviants who fail to acknowledge and give due respect and submission to only Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala and show their appreciation to our beloved Rasul Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam, Khataman Nabiyyil Kareem.
One may respect other human beings but should draw the line at hero-worshiping anyone!
It's just not right! Zainuddin Maidin and Rais Yatim better repent and stop their nonsense!
Its alright to acknowledge the efforts anbd sacrifices of our nation's true leaders such as the ones I have mentioned but overpraising airheads only spells disaster for themselves and the one being pumped up, what more this nation of continuously striving to remain at peace multi faithed, multi ethnic country?
Remember that Death is awaiting each and everyone of us at any given moment in time.
What are you gonna say to Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala when asked as to what we did with our given life's?
Surely, ass kissing the Prime Minister or any other being should not be your reply?
Wise up and straighten up! Your ruqu' and sujud is only for Allah SWT and none other!
Tunku Abdul Rahman is the Father of Independence and we all acknowledge that.
Tun Abdul Razak is the Father of Development and we appreciate his efforts.
Tun Mahathir Mohamad is the Father of Modernization and we all must give him his dues to be remembered accordingly.
I leave it to you as to what you want to acknowledge our current chief civil servant?
Some say...the most is just being ...Father in Law of someone.
Sheeeshh! Hehehehehe...Any suggestions?
