Smile! You are 24/7 on Allah's Candid Camera!
Assalamualaikum Warahmtullahi Ta'ala Wabarakatuh!
The recent scandal of Dr.Chua Soi Lek, the former Malaysian Health Minister and MCA Vice-President who was forced to resign from all his government posts and political party positions in the light of his being exposed by one secretly filmed adulterous act is referred.
Dr.Chua sounded bitter when he accused Malaysians of acting 'holier than thou' when refusing to accept his apology and claimed that he got screwed for 'working too hard'!
Utter poppycock! What does the man expect the public to do? Garland and congratulate him for being still able to get it up and fornicate with a woman not his wife whilst holding public office?
Hello!!! We are still a country that is conservative to a certain level despite all the modernization that has and is taking place here in Malaysia!
We may not be as rigid as other countries around the world but being a potpourri of ancient Asian cultures, honorable traditions and still very much a religious country, there are certain aspects of social and civic responsibilities that our government ministers ought to respect and observe if they still want to be in office.
Sure, vice reigns in every corner of the globe but being a government minister who headed the Health Ministry before the expose of his scandalous affairs, the man must realize that no matter what he says now or offers as a bloody excuse, his reign and theatrics is over!
No point in spewing excuses and giving out cock and bull stories anymore!
Many critics and observers are ganging up on those who set him up by installing the closed circuit hidden cameras and blame Chua Soi Lek's fall from grace to the perpetrators who filmed and exposed his adultery to the world!
Mankind seems to forget that each and every one of us are perpetually on Allah the Almighty's 24/7 candid camera!
Muslims and Kaffirs alike ought to know that there are two angels ascribed to each of us who record our every deeds, wishes and thoughts!
Malaikat's Raqib and 'Atid are ascribed to us and they never leave us right till the very last breath we take or exhale on our moment of death.
Malaikat Raqib on our right records every good deed that we do and enters each and every good wish or intention that we make without fail. For every good intention or wish, we are accorded a blessing and for every good deed carried out, Allah rewards us with more blessings based upon our sincerity and honesty.
Malaikat 'Atid on the other hand records only the sins that we commit and there is a time buffer between the sinful act and the moment that he writes it down in our Book of Deeds. My masters in Sufism taught me that it's a matter of six hours accorded to us before our sin is written down in our records. That buffer time is Allah's Mercy to us to repent and that sin would be abolished and deleted from our records.
That doesn't mean that one can go screw around, commit all kinds of sins and then repents! He knows us best! Only unintentional sins are forgiven that way.
Realizing one's sins and mistakes and then seeking His Forgiveness sincerely vowing not to repeat and making sure that such a sin is not repeated will see one being absolved and forgiven by Ar Rahman.
Today, many fret and fume about the advent of spy cameras and this and that, forgetting that no matter where one tries to hide, no matter how one disguises him or herself to avoid detection from the public eye or from the press, there is no way that he or she can escape from being monitored by Our Creator, Allah the Almighty!
Just like Death, none can escape it! Even if you are a King, President, Prime Minister or what the bloody hell ever, when it's time for you to go, the Angel of Death will be right there for you. Not a second too fast or a second too late.
At the exact time that we are to meet our Maker, Hazrat Izra'il Alaihis Salam will take our soul from us. You can't delay him by saying that you have an appointment with the PM or whatsoever!
'Qullu nafsin iza iqatul maut!' Everything that breathes will die!
Just like Chua Soi Lek! He had been fooling around as he pleased all these while and from what I have learned, even booked that special room at the Katerina every time he wanted to play 'doctor and nurse'.
It was bound to happen. Till this day, there are snippets about him and his post ministerial press conferences or in my opinion 'post ministerial grouses' appearing in Malaysiakini and other news websites.
Many applaud his willingness not to prolong the matter by coming clean and confessing his 'screwup' openly.
His resigning from all government posts came only after he first vehemently stated not to resign from his ministerial position as he served at the pleasure of the Prime Minister and not due to the public having elected him in the first place!
Smacks of arrogance? You can bet on that! He's nowhere like the apologetic Japanese government leaders who confess straightforward about their mistakes and resign there and then without any fanfare!
This fella on the other hand seeks media attention and craves publicity by calling for press conferences and likewise the bloody Malaysian press love nothing more than to dig deeper into all the dirt and spread the shit further!
At the end of the day, we see the lackadaisical Prime Minister and his Deputy come up with half baked acceptances of Chua's resignation and call it a 'sacrifice' on his part to step down from office!
These fellas aren't any better than Chua! Each and every one of the cabinet ministers and top government officials aren't exactly squeaky clean to speak in the first place.
Mahathir had tabs on everyone of his cabinet and to this day can threaten to spill the beans on them if any of them so dare to say anything about him!
Chua just got unlucky! The reporters and investigative journalists out there are just like bloodhounds sniffing here and there for more shit to expose.
As things get closer to the General Elections, more and more government top guns are getting edgy and worry if someone, somewhere gets hold of their dastardly misdeeds and publish it as tomorrow's headlines!
They forget about Allah's candid camera, operating 24/7 without a single error or technical breakdown.
So, all ye government big shots! Smile!!! You're on Allah's Candid Camera! :D
