'Fatwa as you please' - Political desperado's new modus operandi?

What can we say when the leaders of PAS, an 'ulamak based party' feel fit to issue fatwa's as they please just to legitimize politically based character assassinations of their opponents?

One can't totally blame such desperate measures being touted by the likes of PAS President Haji Hadi Awang because the prevailing elections campaigning field is so bloody lopsided due to the ruling coalition's cowardliness in not allowing them equal airtime and space in the mainstream media platform to present their election manifesto unlike the BN monopolizing all such areas?

It still does not qualify PAS leaders to go around hurling insults and curses claiming that necessity to prevent a BN takeover of Kelantan and spoil their chances of making it in this 12th Malaysian General Elections!

I do not agree with what Haji Hadi is reported to have stated here in this latest breaking news that 'its okay in Islam to do just that!'

'IT IS NOT OKAY' according to the Sunnah of Rasulullah Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam.

I have written about the forbidding of the Prophet Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam upon us his Ummah in going around cursing others here.

Are PAS leaders reading a different set of the Kitabs of Hadith than the rest of us or are we expected to just swallow whatever innovative fatwa that is spewed forth by the likes of Haji Hadi and Nik Aziz?

I feel sad to see such well learned Muslims being reduced to being in the category of those ignorants at large who resort to such petty name callings due to their confused selfs not having studied Islam as much as these two reputable scholars of PAS?

It's a shame to see such an erosion of their personalities to want to propose such a lowly calling just because their mortal enemies in UMNO are playing dirty by refusing them equal airtime over the broadcasting systems.

I would like to assure Haji Hadi and Nik Aziz that the learned Malaysians of 2008 aren't buying into all the propaganda bullshit that the BN is broadcasting over the airwaves and print media.

No sirree!

Malaysian voters of today are well aware that what is being bandied about by the BN is just sock full of bull that even a 10 year old kid can sniff out easily?

The internet can't be curtailed by the BN dear Tok Guru's and we the Bloggers of Malaysia are all for justice and truth to be shared and told to anyone who has a connection to the net and by way of other forms of communication.

Malaysiakini is read by millions of Malaysians all over the nation and feedback is being disseminated throughout the whole wide world.

You Tube hosts a whole lot of informative video clips that dissect and expose all the fabrications of the ruling coalition to the whole world so that everyone gets to see, hear and understand that they don't have to be like the 3 'See No Evil, Hear No Evil, Speak No Evil' idiots of yesteryears!

You do not have to worry or resort to such low class measures of issuing curses through your venerated selfs.

Stay well above the fray and really follow the Sunnah of the Prophet Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam to the letter if you will.

Maintain your achieved positions of dignity as the stalwart leaders of PAS and do not go down into the company of fools! It is beneath the status and reputation of wise men to act and behave as them. Won't you agree?

Insya Allah, the Malaysian people know better today not to buy into and believe all the mainstream media bullshit that is coming our way.

If there are still those who swallow hook, line and sinker all the made for TV propaganda myths that are being broadcasted about by your political enemies, be it known to you that those are just a small fraction of clueless folks who still live in an imaginary world of their own where the sun shines brightly 24/7 and they imagine Abdullah Badawi and company to be the best there is for them?

No need to get all flustered up about such dreamers Tok Guru's!

Come March 8th, 2008, see for yourselves how Malaysians will vote?

Worse come to worse, even if you lose, it's not the end of the world just yet?

There will always be a better tomorrow as foretold by Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala!

I am sure you learned gentlemen know of Allah's Promise that the banner of Islam will be flying high in the Akhirul Zaman!

We sure are living in these times, aren't we?

Better to focus on explaining to Malaysians what you plan to do to improve our lives and not fall prey to the bloody ego's that will destroy all the good work and sacrifices you have done for the sake of PAS and all other Malaysians!

Focus Tok Guru's! Focus!

Don't let Zainudin Maidin get to you now! Hehehehehehe!

Thought you gents were tough old warriors? Prove me right!

Wabillahi Taufik Wal Hidayah! Wassalamualaikum Warahmatullahi Ta'ala Wabarakatuh!

Allahu Akbar!

A well known Mufti here has this to say about learned people uttering such utterances "If Rasullullah SAW himself was to hear such words being used in his presence, what would he had said?"

I look forward a an Islamic State the Khilafah but if these are the type of people that are to lead such a state, I am with-holding my vote.

In Islam, the end does not justify the means. If you stoop to the level of your opponents then what is the difference between you and them?

Better the devil you know than the devil you don't know.

What a sorry and pathetic bunch these people are.

herm.i do agree with you.but.that's utusan and it also media of propaganda of BN.n u seems to buy it. i'm sure that there's some spin master in the editorial giving us such an impression.

it clearly contradict what tok guru said about there should be no character assasination by pas candidates.

u said people are not buying but u seems to buy it though on this one.

what say you?
i might be wrong, but i hope i;m not

Dear Abang Zainol,

Can you please enlighten me, if I am about to lodge a police report about a certain crime committed by a certain individual how should I do it without mentioning the bad deeds of that person?

And which part of the newspaper you quoted mentioned insults and curses? I read "mengumpat", "membuat tuduhan" and "mendedahkan keburukan lawan".

The Star reported Haji Hadi said we can do all that "as long as we do not fabricated stories" but of course I do not see that part appear in Utusan.

That's the problem with Malaysia; many people just get too emotional during election season. Speeches can be taken out of context and manipulated by certain parties for their own agenda.Whether or not Tok Guru actually uttered such words within the context as claimed by the media is yet to be proven true.
Non-Muslims used to fear going to Kelantan because of the so-called Islamic fanaticism there, and those who visited the state returned to report that they've been hoodwinked by certain groups of people to fear PAS.
While I agree that as Muslims, we should guard our tongue and our actions at all times, any accusations against other people should also be checked from all angles. That is to be fair to all parties concerned. I've stopped buying printed tabloid newspapers during this season as everywhere I go, I'm being bombarded with how good the ruling party has been, how they deserve to be given the vote again. My verdict: "Oh really?"

Wa'alaikumsalam Bravotango,

Rasulullah Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam is on record as having said,:

" What is wrong with him(insulter)? His forehead be dusted!"

Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 2027 Book of Al-Adab.

So to me, although I find it disturbing to having to speak out against the likes of Tuan Guru's Nik Aziz or Haji Hadi, I still feel that I must state my views about their wrong stance based upon what I hold to be the truthful Hadiths of Rasul Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam!

May they stop issuing such unwarranted statements for it just destroys their hard earned credibility and integrity.

Insya Allah.

Assalamualaikum penulis.

Not that I am not aware of the mainstream media 's spin that I am buying it but the reason I write my response to it is that I hope that both of the PAS leaders mentioned in such a spin WILL NOT REALLY be saying so?

As a Malaysian Blogger it is important for the likes of me to read up each and every media that I need to and such reading is just so that I am aware of what they are reporting?

Not necessarily meaning that Mahaguru58 will swallow hook, line and sinker each and every such reports word for word!

Hope you understand.

Why aren't you writing anything in a blog when you call yourself a 'penulis'?

Invincible posts? :P

Salam MahaGuru...

So, you only know about the Cursing Hadith and those related, eh...

I'll give you two Holy Verses from our Noble Quran that should sum up why and why PAS is doing what they are doing:

Therefore listen not to the Unbelievers, but strive against them with the utmost strenuousness, with the (Qur-an).

Noble Quran [Al-Furqan 25:52]

O Prophet! strive hard against the Unbelievers and the Hypocrites, and be firm against them. Their abode is Hell, an evil refuge indeed.

Noble Quran [At-Tauba 9:73]

Assalamualaikum abu,

You asked:
Q1-'Can you please enlighten me, if I am about to lodge a police report about a certain crime committed by a certain individual how should I do it without mentioning the bad deeds of that person?'

Totally irrelevant to the subject matter dear brother.

What does lodging a police report against a criminal act have to do with the matter of two learned Islamic scholars who propose character assassinations as their preferred methodology to attack their political opponents?

Looks like I come across as an enemy to Nik Aziz and Haji Hadi when in reality I support their cause but only am not that gung ho about choosing defamation of another group of Muslims @ UMNO as a preferred mode of engaging with them in a matter of electoral warfare?

I state it as I feel brother and am not here to satisfy each and everyone of my blog readers just to come across as an accommodating blogger.

Sorry bro. Doesn't work that way for me.

Q2-'And which part of the newspaper you quoted mentioned insults and curses? I read "mengumpat", "membuat tuduhan" and "mendedahkan keburukan lawan".

The Star reported Haji Hadi said we can do all that "as long as we do not fabricated stories" but of course I do not see that part appear in Utusan.

I meant the overall implications of using defamation as a chosen weapon of engagement with the political opponents of PAS.

Anyway, let's not drag this any much more brother. It's like flogging a dead horse.

PAS leaders will just do what they please in order to further their causes.

Bloggers like me who in actuality are their supporters will voice out what we see as their committing an error or errors out of our concern for them.

You folks in PAS don't like it?

Too bad. Just being vocal about such matters in my capacity and as in rights to speak my mind as a fellow Muslim and Malaysian citizen.

At the end of the day, each of us will answer for our own sins and deeds, right?

Than by all means let those who feel like doing what Nik Aziz and Haji Hadi enjoin, go right ahead and do what you will!

To each their own, eh?

MAHAGURU58 said...

Wa'alaikumsalam Saidul.

You assume things about me wrongfully bro!

Why are you shooting off your mouth like that ya akhi?

I am just focusing on the subject matter of the Prophet Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam asking us to refrain from being one who seeks the faults of others perse in his or her quest to further oneself!

You wanna be comparing ayats with me?

Sorry bro. Got much more better things to do than to dwell on nitpicking and seeking out certain ayats in the Qur'an to validate your reference to those ayats to wage war against the Kuffars!

Are we having an election here or shall we go engage in a Jihadul Akbar against our fellow Malaysians as per what you have quoted the verses above?

It is for these reasons that Muslims without fail keep shooting ourselves in the foot in not knowing which is which in wanting to engage in political discussions which has a tendency to erode into fitnah and ill will towards one another!

Sorry brothers, I have nothing but the highest respect for what you guys have done in your respective blogs but looks like this discussion is turning sour by each comment.

Not wishing to have to be in such a situation with you my beloved brothers in Islam.

Let's stop here ya akhi's and move on, thank you.

Wassalamualaikum wr wb.

Sorry Abang Zainol for making this discussion turned sour. Will try to make it sweeter by keep agreeing :)

MAHAGURU58 said...

Mungkin sebab dah tua lah Abu ; malas bertekak sesama Muslim.

Lagipun seolah berbalik balik tang tu juga.

Kita kan tetap mempunyai pandangan berbeza tentang kebanyakan perkara dan adalah lebih baik tidak diperpanjangkan sebarang perbincangan yang jika diteruskan akan mengeruhkan perhubungan sesama bloggers apatah lagi sesama Mukmin?

Maaf jika saya menyinggung perasaan tuan tuan semua.

i was in a conversation with my friend about the issue of this fatwa thing made by Hadi. i have not heard what Abdul Hadi said first handedly but i am really in support of him in exposing the bad thing of a person that is to be elected a leader ONLY IF they are fact and not some bloody rumors.
However, i disagree on the usage of the word mengumpat as for me, mengumpat is always bad.

But, to my surprise, this friend of mine, who i believe have more religious knowledge than i do said that mengumpat is allowed in two conditions that are to expose about pemerintah yang zalim and when the public already knows about it.
and the special part is that he doesnt know about abdul hadi's statement verifying that he's saying it neutrally and not in an attempt to back the pas leader up.

i guess Abdul Hadi's usage of the word mengumpat is not wrong then, do you think so?

And as you are, i dont agree with all the PAS leaders say even though i support them.
