MENJ - MAHAGURU58 Dialogue Part 2 Final





Assalamualaikum Warahmatullahi Ta'ala Wabarakatuh to all ye Muslims and May Peace and Guidance of Almighty Allah be upon the rest.

This is the concluding part of my dialogue with MENJ recently. I discussed with him regarding the current situation where Christians in Malaysia are prone to interfering into Islamic and Muslims affairs here since the change of leadership in the BN Government.

We who are Muslim Bloggers feel that this interference ought not be left to run its course by the Muslims of this land especially those from JAKIM who seem oblivious to all the growing number of Islamophobes here in Malaysia.

JAKIM ought to really get off its butt and start taking corrective action in all aspects of Dakwah al Islamiyah.

Enough of just wasting their time sitting in their plush air conditioned offices and departments, whilst the enemies of Islam are ganging up on the Muslims online and offline by way of their various activities that are meant to undermine the position of Islam in this country.

Among the subjects covered were about the Gospel of Barnabas which foretells the coming of the Last and Final Messenger of Allah after Eesa ibnu Maryam @ Jesus Christ Alaihis Salam.

The Christians know about it but refuse to accept the truth that the Gospel of Barnabas contains.

We can only share info with those who want to learn about the truth. Those who choose to beguile themselves with dreams of being holy moly but get their basics all screwed up have only themselves to blame for their misguidance.

I for one am doing what I can within my means to clear the air about Islam and in my own way share what I have come to learn about Islam and what it really is?

Dakwah is not meant to brainwash anyone into becoming Muslims perse but rather to awaken the human intellect of both Muslims and Kaffirs into studying about their birthrights to be true servants of Allah the Most Merciful and Most Compassionate.

Things won't change until and unless we take a concerted effort to improve ourselves in all ways what more when it concerns our spiritual wellbeing and fulfill our mission to spread the truth about Islam.

This is part of my efforts to do just that.

Islam is to be understood by its principles and whatever has been revealed about it to us by Almighty Allah and His Messengers and Prophets since Time immemorial.

The reality nowadays is that Christians and other Kaffirs tend to zoom in and focus on the screwups by a few Muslims and then lay claim to saying that Islam is bad.

You see a lot of that in Malaysiakini and other websites that fail to stop Islamophobia from taking root in this land.

The website owners might mean well and just want to give all an online platform for freedom of expressions but haters and abusers misuse them to spew heartaches, lies and fabrications.

If I were to start doing the same, I'd be wasting the rest of my life in highlighting to the world screwups by the Kaffirs which are much more numerous and uncountable if we really, really do the same and start badmouthing them based on their sins and crimes!

I reproduce here a card featured from a blog of a friend of mine, Jed Yoong that shows the alarming stage of Islamophobia raging through the Malaysian Blogosphere.

She had taken the card from SEAN-THE-MAN BLOGSPOT.com who designed the card as a contribution to those who fear getting into the same predicament like the recent cases.
















Here's an excerpt of what Sean has to say about why he designed the card:
In light of the increasing number of religious body snatching cases, sean the man reckons that all Non-Muslims in Malaysia should carry on their person, evidence that they are NOT MUSLIM.

Here's a Hell NO, I'm not a Muslim Card, fashioned after the universal organ donor card. I figure that if an organ donor card can determine what happens to your internal organs after you die, it can do the same for your entire body.

So if you care about what happens to your Non-Muslim body after you kick the bucket: print out this card, fill it up and keep it on your person so that you are protected against the body snatchers.
Seriously speaking , the Malaysian Government ought to nip this unnecessary provocation by the Islamophobes and get the people properly updated as to the reasons why the cases where reverts to Islam were buried in Muslim cemeteries and not left to be cremated as Non Muslims or buried in Non Muslim cemeteries?

I joked with MENJ about suggesting that instead of carrying a card which could get lost, maybe it would be better to have a tattoo on their chest or forehead that they are Kaffir!

We spoke about many things and even took the time to castigate Malaysian PM Abdullah Badawi and his Islam Hadhari bida'ah @ innovations.

I really wonder why the so called scholars of Islam here in Malaysia are shutting the hell up and just letting Abdullah Badawi mislead the Muslims here and throughout the world?

I submit only to Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala and am standing firm in speaking out against any injustices being committed against Islam by anyone, even if it be from misinformed fellow so called Muslims!

I believe that it is time for Muslims of the world to wake up from their slumber and take charge of the situation!

Those who wish to comment on the topics covered are advised to send in their comments in a manner that reflects their level of intelligence and fit for publishing.

Comments that stray from the topic and ill-mannered get deleted immediately. I hope that won't happen here.

Are Malaysians capable of intellectual discourse and able to engage with us in a manner befitting our being mature, rational bloggers? I seriously hope so. Prove me right!

Wabillahi Taufik Wal Hidayah. Wassalamulaikum Warahmatullahi Ta'ala Wabarakatuh.

May the Inspiration and Guidance from Allah be upon us. May Peace, Blessings and Mercies of Allah be upon you.
