Gambling is a right for Non Muslims? Who the hell are you kidding???

I refer to the statement adduced to the Deputy Prime Minister of Malaysia, Tan Sri Hj Muhyiddin Yassin whereby it is reported that he had said that it is a right for the Non Muslims to gamble.

I don't even want to go deeper into all the other aspects of sin that Non Muslims are said to have similar rights to harm and destroy themselves as they wish or please!

Maybe its just his political leanings that has caused our DPM to say so but as a Caller to Islam, I just wish that when it comes to speaking on matters that are forbidden to us Muslims, anyone who is in a leadership position here in Malaysia to please check their facts first and rationalize as to whether whatever he or she says has any implications as to their person as a God fearing ( if they really are) Muslim?

You see, in my understanding of Islam and being a Muslim, my faith does not allow me to let others go to hell just because they have yet to understand the beauty of God's revealed faith for all mankind.

Others may argue that I wish to impose my ideals unto those who are not of my faith. I beg to differ.

If gambling is a major sin in Islam and Allah, God Almighty surely doesn't ask us to discriminate between our fellow mankind and He commands us to 'Invite all to the way of His with wisdom and beautiful preaching and to reason with them (the ones who have yet to be Muslim) in ways that are best and most gracious!'

Surah An Nahl Chapter 16 Verse 125:

OdAAu ila sabeeli rabbika bilhikmatiwalmawAAithati alhasanati wajadilhumbillatee hiya ahsanu inna rabbaka huwa aAAlamubiman dalla AAan sabeelihi wahuwa aAAlamu bilmuhtadeen
Yusuf Ali
Invite (all) to the Way of thy Lord with wisdom and beautiful preaching; and argue with them in ways that are best and most gracious: for thy Lord knoweth best, who have strayed from His Path, and who receive guidance.

Frankly speaking, I do believe that no rational person regardless of his or her faith and bearings should have any objections to the Kelantan PAS State Government for closing down any gambling and betting outlets for the good of the people.

Politics aside, UMNO leaders who are also Muslims ought to know better than to issue any self damaging statements such as the one alluded to Muhyiddin Yassin whereby he asks the Non Muslim Malaysians to judge the Kelantan State Government's religiously based action as infringing upon their rights!

What rights are we talking about here?

The right to destroy oneself and one's family?

The right to waste away precious resources and to put one's loved ones to peril and harm from debt collectors or loan sharks?

What bloody rights are we talking about here?????


Islam has universal values that protects and safeguards humans from going to waste so to speak!

The problem is that we have halfbaked nincompoops amongst the Ummah of this earthly life who seem to have a dire wish to engage in diarrhea of the lip and expose their ignorance of the ideals of Islamic Syariah and what it does to help mankind live a better way of life than what the humankind is notorious for?

Remember Surah Al Asr?

Surat Al-`Aşr (The Declining Day) - سورة العصر

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Yusuf Ali
By (the Token of) Time (through the ages),

Inna al-insana lafee khusr
Yusuf Ali
Verily Man is in loss,

Illa allatheena amanoowaAAamiloo assalihati watawasaw bilhaqqiwatawasaw bissabr
Yusuf Ali
Except such as have Faith, and do righteous deeds, and (join together) in the mutual teaching of Truth, and of Patience and Constancy.

Verily Allah the Most Compassionate, Most Merciful God of us all has seen it fit to remind us to exhort one another to righteous deeds and to join together in combating sin and wrongdoing.

Don't tell me that we don't give a shit as to what happens to the Chinese, Indians, Sikhs, Orang Asli's, even some of the ignorant ones amongst the Muslim Malays who indulge in gambling, alcoholism, fornication, and all other major sins?

How the hell can we just close our eyes and pretend to mind our own business when Rasul Sallalahu alaihi Wassallam has enjoined us to watch out for one another no matter that they are not our fellow Muslims?

Is Islam that narrow?

Only those who are halfbaked nincompoops will believe such a fallacy!

Islam is for you and me. As a Caller to Islam, I ask that those who want to speak on matters pertaining to our God revealed faith to please do your studies and check with your authentic bonafide ulamaks before you open that trap of yours that can just render you untrustable!

I'm not joking!

The BN Federal Government UMNO leaders who happen to be Muslims must know in depth about the implications of allowing activities that are forbidden in Islam to the general Malaysian population.

If alcohol is haram in Islam, Allah has His Reasons to stop us from imbibing in it. We all know the dangers of alcoholism. Many families have been ruined by it and to this day, there are so many out there getting drunk on cheap spirits just to forget their woes and misery of living in poverty and dire straits!

Go investigate the various reasons that led many who are caught in the deadly web of prostitution and debauchery out there in our nation's nefarious streets of sin and chances are that you will find alcoholism to be one major cause. Drug addiction has also caused many to destroy their good names and reputation.

Check out the reasons why many resort to borrowing from loan sharks and you'll find gambling to be part of the causes. 

So, is the PAS State Government of Kelantan wrong according to the Shariah in closing down lottery outlets?

Let's be practical! 

PAS is not perfect in many areas but this is one move by them that Mahaguru58 endorses a 100 and 1%!

Whoever opposes such a move has to have his or her Aqeedah checked!

We want those who lead us in government to be of a calibre that is as close to the ideals of a true blue capable wise and righteous Khalifah as best as they possibly can.

If not we are all screwed!


Na'uzubillahiminzalik! May Allah forbid!

Assalamualaikum. WBKT
nothing uprised me anymore when it came out of the UMNO's leaders or ex leader's mouth..whatdo we expect fvrom t hem anyway? to support PAS?

what are going to do to 'open' the voters eyes, ears and mind? nothing affect the 'pengundi tegar' votes..BN is winning the latest PRKs and now they are confident to win the PRU..

MAHAGURU58 said...


Please do not mis-conclude that I endorse PAS a hundred percent for their collaborating with their Pakatan partners.

As long as PAS is with DAP and PKR, they will not be able to achieve their original agenda in establishing a Daulah al Islamiyyah!


I am not saying that I agree totally with the BN either.

There are also some amongst both political groups who issue insensitive statements and viewpoints about Islam and the Muslims which I find to be offensive.

I will support those who respect Islam and the Muslims.

Those who speak as they please will find me to be amongst their strongest critics.

Wallahi! Wabillahi! Wattalahi!

Regardless as to who they are!

Kenn said...

Does that mean other religions (other than Islam) "recognise" the right to gamble? Gambling is OK in other religions?

I seriously don't think so.

MAHAGURU58 said...

My sentiments exactly Kenn!

Why are the leaders of the Malaysian Consultative Council of Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Sikhism and Taoism not raising even a whimper about this matter?

Do they condone gambling?

Is it a right in their respective beliefs and faiths?
