Assalamualaikum Warahmatullahi Ta'ala Wabarakatuh.
Ya Aiyuhal Mukminun.
May Allah the Almighty bless you who have faith in Him and grant you the best of what this earthly life has to offer and strengthen your mortal selfs with the best of Iman, Aqeedah and the Will to carry out your Amals.
Ameen Ya Rabbal Alameen.
Know you that you are the best of His Servants for you glorify His Names and you enjoin towards the Makruf @ Good and you forbid the Mungkar @ Evil.
At least a small portion of us do that.
I am being very frank about this. A very large majority of the born Muslims living here in Malaysia and the rest of the world are very aloof and largely unconcerned about the state of their faiths and live a life devoid of Iman and Amals.
The ones who really bother about our Deenul Islam are instead branded as those who are fanatics, extremists and Islamofascists by the Harami's and Laknatullahs of the cyberspace and their patrons and cohorts amongst the Munafiqeens who masquerade and put up a false front of being Muslims.
To tell you the truth, that includes those in temporal authority here on Earth who call themselves as Keepers of the Faith and pretend to be the Saviors of Ad Deen ul Islam.
To me as a Muslim, I do not care two hoots about all these great pretenders for my soul is indebted to Our Creator and not to any ruler or temporal authority here on Earth!
I worry more about what My Creator thinks of me than what cyberspace imbeciles and nitpickers brand me as?
When I die, it is to Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala that I will have to answer to care of His Malaikats Munkar and Naqir and not to the rest of the humankind with whom I am presently living here in this planet called Earth and motherland called Malaysia.
So, as a Muslim Caller to Islam and as a Muslim Blogger, I realize my need to speak up for my faith and deal with those who try their best to humiliate and denigrate my faith under guise of using the freedom of speech and expressions to rundown my religion.
I know that there are not that many of us who are Muslim Bloggers who care to or have it in them to face up to these often anonymous spineless cowards online.
Nevertheless, I couldn't care less or be bothered as to play footsie with the likes of this Surind Raj and his coterie of harami's who seem to have nothing better to do than to spew religious hatred and create strife here in the cyberspace.
This is the result of those harami's failing to realize the beauty and truth about Islam but instead fall prey to their own Naf's and Ego's into thinking that they know better than Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala or His Greatest Messenger here on Earth, Khatamun Nabiyyi Rasulullah Al Mustafa, Muhammad ibni Abdullah Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam?
Dear brothers and sisters,
This sick sorry state of mindset comes from nothing but pure Ignorance and a sense of narcissistic tendency into thinking that they are correct and the rest of humankind is wrong.
Frankly speaking, I wouldn't even be bothered to waste my precious time into exchanging online barbs with these kind if they had not started to interfere with my faith and insult us Muslims for no bloody rhyme or reason in the first place!
I'd rather spend those precious seconds with my beloved ones or my Ikhwanul Muslimin and help them with all that I have within me and share with them what I have come to learn about Al Islam, etcetera.
I know that sometimes it is pointless to try and guide these persons who seem to be blinded with pure hate and animosity towards us Believers in Almighty Allah and Our Prophet Muhammad Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam but I have no options but to act accordingly and within my capacity as a Muslim Blogger and Servant of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala.
One of the Islamophobes wrote a comment recently and asked me as to who appointed me to speak up for Allah and the Muslims?
This sick harami knows nuts about Islam and yet has the gall to come ask me such a question?
I naturally would not waste my time bothering to answer that moron or even deem it fit to have his hate filled comment published.
My suggestion is for him and his like to go do some study about Islam first before letting their diarhhea of their skewed up mindsets let loose in cyberspace!
Know what it is that you are fighting against you imbeciles?
You are fighting against Allah Azza Wa Jalla, The Master of the Universes and God Almighty Most Supreme, Most High when you dare to meddle your sorry demented self's against the Faith of Al Islam!
To me, I did what I am required to as a Muslim and as a citizen of this country! I believe that our Royal Malaysian Police are capable of seeing to it that those who breach the laws of this country will be traced and made to answer for their sins and crimes against Islam and us Muslims.
Amar Makruf Nahi Mungkar!
You who are Muslims, must know that we are all living on borrowed time courtesy of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala!
It is Him who you must submit yourselves to and not to the whims and fancies of those amongst Mankind who choose to insult Him and belittle our Faith of Islam.
If you are a true Muslim, then you must surely recall this Hadith of the Prophet Muhammad Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam :
On the authority of Abu Sa'id al-Khudri, Radhiallahu 'anhu, who said: I heard the Messenger of Allah, Sallallahu 'Alayhi Wasallam, say:
"When any one of you sees anything that is disapproved (of by Allah), let him change it with his hand. If he is not able to do so, then let him change it with his tongue. And if he is not able to do so, then let him change it with his heart, though that is the weakest (kind of) faith."
[Hadith related by Muslim]
I received a call the day before yesterday when I was still in Kuantan and about to make our journey back home to Kuala Lumpur from Haris Ibrahim, the lawyer for Azalina Jailani @ Lina Joy and a fellow blogger who blogs at The People's Parliament.
Haris identified himself since the number appearing on my handset was private. He said that he has been monitoring what has been going on between Surind and myself and admitted to feeling offended by the former's lack of commonsense and publishing such an offensive and uncalled for article against Islam, etc.
He also spoke of his displeasure regarding my harsh manner of addressing the offender and reminded me of the Surah An Nahl Chapter 16 Verse 125 where I immediately recited the Ayat in Arabic spontaneously to show that I do know and in fact put such Commandments of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala to practice almost daily in my life!
Haris admitted that he's not well versed in Arabic and said that he wished that I will be more lenient towards Surind and others like him?
I admitted to Haris that I wrote my first article against Surind when I was angry!
I do not have any regrets in saying my piece exactly as I felt and still feel about these people who after claiming to be atheists and this and that, still are so obstinate in deriding Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala, the Blessed Prophet Muhammad Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam and us Muslims who in the first place have not done anything to them to merit such hatred being published against us in cyberspace!
So Haris told me that he's going to write about this episode and I told him to go ahead and write what he wishes for it is his prerogative in blogging as he wished?
So Haris had blogged about it and stated his piece where he whacked both me and Surind equally. :P
No worries. I had told Haris that I do not expect him to write in support of me or anything if that is not what he wishes to?
We might differ in our points and standpoints but that does not eliminate the fact and reality that we are both Muslims who submit to Allah Azza Wa Jalla!
Some may question Haris's Iman and Aqeedah as a Muslim following his choice to represent Azalina Jailani @ Lina Joy in her case against the Islamic Authority here in Malaysia but that is his job as a lawyer.
I for one do not wish to dwell on Haris's state of faith or anything. That is between him and Allah.
Period. He will answer to Allah when the time comes. Insya Allah!
Back to the matter of enjoining the good and forbidding evil, we as Muslims who are now using this cyberspace must know that whatever we say or do is on record, not only here in the internet archives but also as is being recorded by the Malaikats Raqib and Atid Alaihis Salam on our right and left!
They know exactly what we mean by our bloggings here online and what we really, truly feel when we do anything, both online and offline?
If we are Muslims who strive to improve ourselves in our understandings of Islam and we put to practice such `Ilm then we are expected to live up to our Shahadah and be sincere in our mission to be the best that we can be as true Abdillah's of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala!
Do not give 'face' to anyone who dares to insult Islam and all that it stands for?
If you do, then you need to check your Aqeedah and set yourselves right again or be doomed to be amongst those who are as what Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala forewarned and commanded us :
Allah, the Exalted, says:
"Let there arise out of you a group of people inviting to all that is good (Islam), enjoining Al-Ma`ruf (i.e., Islamic Monotheism and all that Islam orders one to do) and forbidding Al-Munkar (polytheism and disbelief and all that Islam has forbidden). And it is they who are the successful.'' (3:104)
"You (true believers in Islamic Monotheism, and real followers of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) and his Sunnah) are the best of peoples ever raised up for mankind; you enjoin Al-Ma`ruf (i.e., Islamic Monotheism and all that Islam has ordained) and forbid Al-Munkar (polytheism, disbelief and all that Islam has forbidden)''. (3:110)
"Show forgiveness, enjoin what is good, and turn away from the foolish (i.e., don't punish them).'' (7:199)
"The believers, men and women, are Auliya' (helpers, supporters, friends, protectors) of one another; they enjoin (on the people) Al-Ma`ruf (i.e., Islamic Monotheism and all that Islam orders one to do), and forbid (people) from Al-Munkar (i.e., polytheism and disbelief of all kinds, and all that Islam has forbidden)''. (9:71)
"Those among the Children of Israel who disbelieved were cursed by the tongue of Dawud (David) and `Isa (Jesus), son of Maryam (Mary). That was because they disobeyed (Allah and the Messengers) and were ever transgressing beyond bounds. They used not to forbid one another from the Munkar (wrong, evildoing, sins, polytheism, disbelief) which they committed. Vile indeed was what they used to do". (5:78,79)
"And say: `The truth is from your Rubb.' Then whosoever wills, let him believe; and whosoever wills, let him disbelieve". (18:29)
"Therefore proclaim openly (Allah's Message - Islamic Monotheism) that which you are commanded...'' (15:94)
"We rescued those who forbade evil, but with a severe torment We seized those who did wrong because they used to rebel against Allah's Command (disobey Allah)". (7:165)
I do not claim to be better than any other Muslim reading this but am just doing what I have chosen to here online as a Muslim Blogger.
I welcome suggestions and advice from my readers if they are written in a sincere and decent manner full of truth and wisdom but have to reiterate again that nonsensical comments and attacks against Islam or my person will be immediately removed and such person's ID be set and regarded as spam and will not even be read if they appear again in future comments posted here to me.
I know that there are decent folks out there who are not Muslims yet or will ever be one and I have many of them amongst my friends here online and offline as well.
We may differ on issues that come before us but that doesn't affect our camaraderie as fellow bloggers here in cyberspace.
We do not clamor for respect or acceptance by those who do not subscribe to our beliefs as Muslims and wish to state that such respect or acceptance is not what this blogger craves for?
All I want is the Redha of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala and not of anything else for it matters not to me, a Servant of Ar Rahman Ar Raheem, Malikul Mulk.
I know about 'Hablum minAllah' and 'Hablum Minan nas' and I try my level best to be cordial to those who mean us Muslims no harm.
I do however take offense against people who for no rhyme or reason attack us here online and think that they have such rights to do so?
To each their own I say and may commonsense and rational discourse be the order of the day failing which just be man or woman enough to answer for their crimes here in cyberspace and don't be so bloody arrogant as to think that just because you know a smattering of English, you can just whack away as you please at others!
The internet is not the Land of the Cyber Jungle where you can do as you please?
There are certain laws of cyberspace that can and will land you into deep shit if you just defecate your deluded mind's contents any way you feel?
Respect goes both ways and I wish to remind my fellow bloggers that we are held accountable for whatever we publish here in our individual blogs?
We can never claim to say," It's Not Me!" and try to get away with posting filth and venomous insulting material against a faith and hope to get away with any such chicken shit disclaimers!
We who blog have the responsibility over every little thing that goes into and gets published through our blogs and websites.
As I have said earlier :
You can't backspace after pushing the 'Enter' button!
It will be too damn late to reverse the damage that whatever irresponsible posting causes!
The honorable thing to do would be to delete the offensive material, issue an open apology and to never again to ever do that same bloody mistake!
Failing which, just get ready to face the music!
Wabillahi Taufik Wal Hidayah.
Wassalamualaikum Warahmatullahi Ta'ala Wabarakatuh.
