Work towards being better Muslims than talk about Islamic State!

I refer to the constant harping about establishing an Islamic State here and there by politicians from the Islamic Party of Malaysia and their ever castigating opponents in the DAP!

Both parties are talking about a situation that has yet to be and forget about working towards guiding the ignorant's in our society towards being better Muslims in the true sense of the word and better citizens of Malaysia in general!

The reality that the majority of the Muslims in Malaysia today are just so and so in their understanding and practice of the Islamic faith.

Muslims today are more inclined to waste away their life's pursuing their worldly goals and objectives and are not that inclined to protect and preserve their Iman @ Faith or care about their obligations as Muslims in the way and manner it is expected of them?

Islam to these lackadaisical 'Muslims' has become a label to them instead of truly be practiced by them with understanding and proper observance?

Symbolism has crept into the lifestyle of today's Muslims and we see many ignorant ones amongst the Malaysian Muslim ummah who just sport tudungs and hijabs outwardly but do not really take care of their adab and proper mannerisms.

We see many who sport kopiahs and keep sprouts of beards in the form of goatees or even large bushy beards but internally lack true knowledge of Islam and are the ones who are prone to brand others who don't look like them or dress like them as the 'faithless ones'!

My personal experiences in dealing with such 'holier than thou' types have further hammered into me that my fellow Muslims today seriously lack true knowledge in Islam.

If I were to go into our Malaysian society today and conduct on the spot interviews about their Islamic knowledge, I am sure to meet those who would be clueless about even the basic pillars of Islam and Iman?

Don't even start about checking these Muslims as to their 'Fardhu Ain' knowledge?

We are sure going to be disappointed with what we will find?

So to the ones who are constantly bickering and arguing about setting up an Islamic state constitutionally, I would rather ask that they go about educating and helping the Muslims who are living their life's as hollow shells of true Muslims in the reality of our present situations all over the nation and then, only then look towards institutionalizing the nation according to what they plan or wish to?

As for the likes of Karpal Singh and Lim Kit Siang, I ask that these elderly politicians not to be so blinkered in their views and to see that the intention of politicians like Tuan Guru Hj Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat and Tuan Guru Hj Abdul Hadi Awang are just to see their fellow Muslims there in Kelantan and Terengganu and they are not imposing Islamic Sharia laws on to the Non Muslims there?

Karpal Singh and Kit Siang need to look at the bigger picture and not remain blinkered in their views as they have been almost their entire political life?

I have lots of cases to present as far as the moral and social breakdown taking place in our society today but am not going to publish them yet as I believe these words suffice for now?

Muslims in Malaysia ought to look at how we are living our life's today and what is taking place in our society?

Can we truly claim that we have done enough when our youngsters and ignorants amongst the adults as well are living a life full of sin and apathy towards the social rot infesting the hearts and minds of the lust crazed ones in Malaysia?

Stop talking about Islamic state and start doing your part towards being better Muslims for once?

Dakwah efforts need to be increased by all the able Muslims amongst us and not just warm the seats in the forums and seminars that do nothing to stop the belligerent ones in the Ummah from destroying the whole Muslim population!

Ulamaks ought to come down from their high and mighty offices and institutes and go do some good for the society.

Mufti's and Imams need to go advice the Muslims in person and stop issuing empty slogans and decrees without following up with actual dakwah efforts from them in the true sense!

Can we just mind our own business and see the Muslims of Malaysia end up amongst those destined to Hell?

Stop talking about 'tauliah's this and 'tauliah' that but those with scrolls and degrees up to their nose do nothing concrete about it and when they drop dead take their so called skills that they claim to possess to their graves!

Do we have to wait for disasters to befall us before we repent?

It is as Allah the Almighty says in the Holy Qur'an Al Kareem in Surah Al Asr Chapter 103 Verses 1-3:

1. WaalAAasri

1. By (the Token of) Time (through the ages),

2. Inna al-insana lafee khusrin

2. Verily Man is in a loss,

3. Illa allatheena amanoo waAAamiloo alssalihati watawasaw bialhaqqi watawasaw bialssabri

3. Except those who have Faith, and do righteous deeds, and (join together) in the mutual teaching of the Truth, and of Patience and remain Constant in their efforts (Dakwah).


Let's not wait till it's too bloody late!

Start correcting ourselves and those whom we claim to care and love?

Our Ikhwanul Muslimin and fellow Children of Adam who are seeking for Allah's Mercy!

May Almighty Allah bless and guide us all. Ameen Ya Rabbal Alameen.
