Writing as a way to leave a legacy of your thoughts!

When the Prophet Muhammad Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam (May peace be upon him) first received the Revelations of the Al-Qur'an Al Karim verbatim from the Archangel Jibreel Alaihis Salam ( Upon him be peace), he was forced to memorize it by Jibreel Alaihis Salam!

Being an unlettered person @ not having learned as to how to read or write, the Prophet was obviously alarmed and at a loss on being asked to 'read' by Jibreel Alaihis Salam who came to the Blessed Prophet in the form of a bright, shining light and illuminated the small dark cave high above the mountains of Makkah!

Imagine how it must have been for the blessed Rasul Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam?

Naturally, he was stressed out by such an experience! Who wouldn't? 

As the Prophet hurried down the mountain and rushed home shivering to seek the solace and comfort of his wife Sayyidatina Khadijah Radhiallahu Anha, his wife reassured the Prophet that he being who he is will not be burdened by God Almighty and that he should rest assured that God will not abandon him to shoulder the burden of prophet-hood all by himself.

She was the first to believe in him being the Final Messenger of Allah. The next to believe in him was Sayyidina Ali ibni Abu Talib, his cousin. Followed by his closest friend and companion Sayyidina Abu Bakar. 

The Prophet Muhammad Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam continued to receive the Revelations of the Al Qur'an Al Karim through a period of 23 long years. 13 of them were received during his stay in Makkah and the rest of the Final Revelations were received by the Blessed Messenger during his 10 years in Madinah.

The scholars of Sirah (Prophet’s biography) have mentioned the names of the Sahabah @ Companions of the Prophet who used to write down the Wahyu of Allahu Ta'ala @ The Revelations of the Al Qur'an or the letters of the Messenger (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him). 

They were: 
  1. Abu Bakr al-Siddeeq, 
  2. ‘Umar ibn al-Khattaab, 
  3. ‘Uthmaan ibn ‘Affaan, 
  4. ‘Ali ibn Abi Taalib, 
  5. al-Zubayr ibn al-‘Awwaam, 
  6. ‘Aamir ibn Fuhayrah,
  7. ‘Amr ibn al-‘Aas, 
  8. Ubayy ibn Ka’b,
  9. ‘Abd-Allaah ibn al-Arqam, 
  10. Thaabit ibn Qays ibn Shammaas, 
  11. Hanzalah ibn al-Rabee’ al-Usaydi, 
  12. al-Mugheerah ibn Shu’bah, 
  13. ‘Abd-Allaah ibn Rawaahah, 
  14. Khaalid ibn al-Waleed, 
  15. Khaalid ibn Sa’eed ibn al-‘Aas (whom it was said was the first one to write down anything for him), 
  16. Mu’aawiyah ibn Abi Sufyaan and 
  17. Zayd ibn Thaabit and many others totaling 42 Sahabah altogether.
Muhammad Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam requested them to write down the Wahyu from Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala and counter checked with them as to each verse and reconfirmed it.

Thus the noble tasks of the scribes who were with the Blessed Messenger of Allahu Ta'ala helped preserve the revelations of the Blessed Al Quran and made copies of the Final Guidance from our Lord Almighty to be the beacon of truth that shines forth to this very day bringing salvation to all those seeking for it.

Writing is a time honored tradition of preserving human history and those who write for the sake of sharing truthful information based on facts continue a legacy of virtue that elevates us who are members of the humankind to a stage that differentiates us from the other creations of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala.

Through our efforts in writing for the sake of Allah and His Messenger, we continue to strive in the Way of the Blessed Prophet and spread his Dakwah to all those who read our articles and learn about Islam, everyone's birthright.

If you have the means and abilities to write and publish online for the global audience to learn about Islam, then please waste no time in doing so.

Leave a legacy of beneficial writings for the world to learn as a mark of our presence here on Earth. Insya Allah it might just be our redeeming effort to enjoin what's right and forbid the wrongs.

For those of you who would like to learn more about the story of Prophet Muhammad Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam, come listen to Brother Yusuf Islam @ former Cat Stevens reading the Sirah of the Greatest Messenger of Allah:

TNB empunya angkara! 'Blackout' dikawasan Cheras, KL!

Tak ada angin ; tak ada ribut! Tiba tiba 'blackout' di kawasan kediaman saya di Bandar Tun Razak, Cheras, KL! Sejurus sebelum Asar tadi.

Inilah kerja TNB! Tarif elektrik bukan main tinggi melambung! Dari bayar bil didalam lingkungan seratus dua puluh gitu kini dah mencecah dua ratus lebih setiap bulan!

Namun, sebagai pengguna yang tidak mempunyai pilihan alternatif, mahu tak mahu terpaksalah kita keluar duit membayar bil letrik TNB yang cekik darah!

Almaklumlah mereka memegang monopoli!

Adakah mereka akan membayar pampasan kepada kita sebagai pengguna?

Berapa banyak bahan makanan dan minuman kita yang mulai rosak sebab peti ais tak dapat berfungsi?

Jangan haraplah puak puak korporat yang keparat ni nak mengganti rugi!

Mana tak mencarutnya si Cina dajjal sekor tu dengan mengeluarkan videonya memaki hamun TNB!

Nampaknya tak akan ada sebarang gantirugi atau rebet dari bil letrik kita bulan ni.

Dasar 'beraja di mata ; bersyaitan dihati!' 

Sesungguhnya daku sedang berpuasa demi Mu Ya Allah! 

Turunkan lah balasan kepada mereka ini yang tidak bertanggungjawab di TNB!

Jumaat Khutbah by Syeikh Hussein Yee ~ As it should be delivered!

Assalamualaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh.

Dear Muslims especially those of you who claim to be the Heads of Islam in this country @ Malaysia and all other countries throughout this mortal world.

I don't know if the Jumaat khutbah has been held to ransom by government bureaucracy in any other country in the whole wide world the way it has been shackled here in Malaysia!

Instead of speaking from the heart as has been the Sunnah of the Blessed Messenger of Allah, the khatibs are being forced to read from officially prepared texts when they stand before the jamaah in the masjids here in Malaysia.

As a result, the Jumaat khutbah is not reaching the hearts and minds of the attending congregation. The ruling authorities here are afraid that the khatibs will be inciting the masses against them if allowed to preach freely!

As the Malay saying goes,' Berani kerana benar ; takut jika bersalah!'

One should not fear the truth if one is just! When one has skeletons to hide, then every lingering shadow is feared to be the bogeyman! :P

Please watch this khutbah by Syeikh Hussein Yee!

This is how every Jumaat Khutbah should be delivered! The emphasis should be to educate the jamaah as per the Sunnah @ Example of Rasul Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam.

If the khatib speaks from his heart, then each and every word he says will enter the hearts of the listening jamaah. If he reads from a prepared text, more often it will not even pass through the ears of the congregation!

What more if the presenter is seriously lacking the passion and drive of a good speaker who can hold and grab his audience's attention?

Reading a prepared text just puts the jamaah to sleep! Do free the khutbah!

Not be held to ransom by the Islamic Religious Departments of each state by imposing government propaganda which almost always do not address the prevailing issues affecting the ummah of the masjid's kariah @ surrounding community!

The context of the prepared texts of the Jumaat Khutbah which are forced upon the khatib to be read to the jamaah destroys the spirit of Dakwah and forces ill prepared khatibs to mumble through the khutbah, failing to awaken the senses of the droopy eyed jamaah!

Droning on and on until the jamaah fall asleep through sheer boredom and not excited or encouraged by such prepared texts!

The khutbah must be free from government propaganda. It does not however mean that the khatib can just talk about any topic under the sun as he pleases?

The khutbah must be relevant to the life of the present jamaah attending and must be educational, inspiring and productive. Not inciting or provocative and detrimental to the safety and well being of the ummah and the country.

Surely, the ones in authority can consider freeing the mimbar from their choke hold strangulating the free voice of the khatib from delivering the weekly Jumaat khutbah as what the Prophet Muhammad Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam enjoined us to?

Failing which, then be prepared to face the wrath of Allah Azza Wa Jalla in the Yaum al Qiyamah!

True Muslim leaders will react and respond to this call to return to the real Sunnah of Rasulullah Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam.

Will the pompous pretenders remain deaf, dumb and blind to this call to free the mimbar's of the masjids of this country or react only until tragedy befalls us???

I want to see what the Heads of Islam here in this country are gonna do?

Rohingya Holocaust! Who's gonna save them from the Buddhist Nazi's?

During the World War 2, Western superpowers such as the United States of America, Britain and its allies waged war against Nazi Germany in order to stop the extermination of the Jews by Adolf Hitler's marauding troops.

That was way back in 1939 till 1945 when the Nazi's were clobbered back into oblivion by the might of the Western armies.

Today, another holocaust is taking place right before the eyes of the ever vigilant world but not one country has the guts or the moral courage to counter the rampaging hordes of Buddhist Rakhine mass murderers of the Rohingya Muslims in Burma ~ Myanmar!

Watch the following videos and see for yourself what the Rohingya's are going through today!

There's no point in priding oneself claiming to have the best military here and there in the so called Muslim nations of the world when our fellow Muslims are being slaughtered at will over there in the once pariah country wedged between Thailand and Bangladesh!

All the so called Muslim leaders of this world are bloody cowards and eunuchs!

They pretend to be the Sultans, Presidents and Prime Ministers of their countries and put up a facade of ruling their countries according to the Syariah of Allah as evidenced even here in this Kingdom of Malaysia but in reality its all mere lip service!

At times like these we need the kind of warriors such as Salahudin Al Ayyubi, Khalid al Waleed, Sayyidina Umar Al Khattab, Sayyidina Ali bin Abu Talib, Sayyidina Hamzah bin Abdul Mutallib and other historic generals of our illustrious past to lead the forces of the Mujahideen and help save the Rohingya Muslims from being obliterated from the face of this earth!

Enough is enough! 

Those Buddhist Nazis are guilty of mass murders of the helpless Burmese Rohingya Muslims! 

What more evidence is needed to go in and teach them a lesson not to be as barbaric as what Hitler's Nazi's once did to the Jews?

Remember what Hitler once said?

' Today I will once more be a prophet: if the international Jewish financiers in and outside Europe should succeed in plunging the nations once more into a world war, then the result will not be the Bolshevising of the earth and thus the victory of Jewry, but the annihilation of the Jewish race in Europe!'.

Adolf Hitler
Speech to the Reichstag
30th January 1939

Malaysia as one of the leading countries of ASEAN must not pretend to not know of this massacre taking place right before our very eyes!

Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak must rise to the occasion and send the Burmese Regime a stern message that they can't get away with genocide!

Sever ties with the Burmese barbarians and sent them packing back to their country! Order their Burmese Embassy here to be closed.

The reason why the enemies of Allah succeeded in defeating some Muslims and taking over their land is because they have lost their love for martyrdom. 

The Messenger of Allah Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam said:

“Nations will attack you like a group of people eating from a plate. The Sahabah said: “Is that because we will be few in numbers?” 

He said: “No, you will be numerous but you will be like the foam of the sea, and Allah will take away from the hearts of your enemies the fear from you and Allah will cast in your hearts “wahan”" 

They said: “What is “wahan” O Messenger of Allah?” He said: “The love of this world and the hatred of death”
(Related by Abu Dawud).

I for one call for the Mujahideen of the world to amass their forces and go into Burma and kill all those Rakhine Buddhist bastards responsible for the ongoing Rohingya holocaust!

This holocaust must be stopped at once and it can only be done through the use of force! The Burmese regime has been thumbing its nose at the world for much too long already!

Time to teach the Yangon regime that it can't get away with its holocaust of the helpless Rohingyas!

The Rohingyas are not the only ones being killed by the Burmese Military regime! The Karens are also being exterminated at will by them!

Watch this!

What more is the world waiting for?

At least the Karen people have a guerrilla force fighting for them! The Rohingya's have no one to protect them!

The Buddhist monks who were also brutalized by the Burmese regime before as witnessed in the following video have now sided with the Rakhines in killing the Rohingya Muslims!

It's a country going crazy!

To be fair, I came across this video showing mass numbers of cap wearing hordes of what appears to be Muslims running riot and throwing rocks at the homes of people there in Burma's Rakhine Province!

Any Rohingya Muslim blogger capable of explaining in English as to what happened here?

Ramadan, Rohingya, Genocide, World Apathy!

To those of you who are yet to become a Muslim in the true sense of the word, do know that you are missing out a great deal from getting the fringe benefits that come with the acts of fasting from before dawn to the setting of the sun heralding the breaking of one's fast!

Fasting is wajib @ compulsory upon those of us who are Muslims @ Believers and able to do so physically, mentally and spiritually. It is pointless for one to fast if you are not a Mukmin @ a Believer. 

I have a friend @ Chew Hoong Ling, who is a Buddhist and aiming to be an MCA candidate in the coming 13th Malaysian General Elections. She claims to be fasting together with Muslims in this holy month of Ramadan. 

  • Terima kasih daun keladi, Dipermudahkan puasa sehari lagi, Esok hari sekali lagi..

Generally speaking, its her choice and no one can stop her but religious wise, there are no rewards for her fasting according to our Islamic faith but only experiencing hunger and thirst apart from the obvious health benefits that the act of absolute fasting can give! 

That is to actually go without even a single drop of water or food and abstaining from committing all kinds of acts that will render one's Islamic fast null and void!

I don't know for whom Hoong Ling fasts? If it is for some other deity then her fast has no merits in Ramadhan. Hers would be just a fast like any other.

We fast for the sake of Allah the Almighty and Him Alone. 

We say our intentions to fast : "Nawaitu saum maghdin an ada' ii fardhan shahri ramadhana hazihi Lillahi Ta'ala!" meaning 'I intend to fast tomorrow fulfilling the compulsory fast of Ramadhan this year for the sake of Allahu Ta'ala!' 

Fasting has its many benefits for us Muslims. It is decreed in Surah Al Baqarah, Chapter 2 Verse 183 in the Blessed Qur'an:

Ya ayyuha allatheena amanookutiba AAalaykumu assiyamu kamakutiba AAala allatheena min qablikum laAAallakumtattaqoon
Sahih International
O you who have believed, decreed upon you is fasting as it was decreed upon those before you that you may become righteous -

Fasting gives us a chance to experience hunger and thirst. Get to know how it must be for those who are poor and have nothing to eat or drink?

People who are suffering from drought and calamities such as those going through hell in Sudan, Somalia and other troubled countries.
People suffering ethnic cleansing now like those in Burma ~ the Muslim Rohingya's who are having their homes torched, wives and daughters raped, tortured and butchered by the Buddhists in the Rakhine area and wholly supported by the Burmese Buddhist regime's murderers!

Their children are killed and torched by the so called peace loving Buddhists of Burma! Don't believe me? 

Here open your eyes wide and witness the Burmese Buddhists atrocities!

What kind of justice is the UN talking about?

America won't bother coming to save these people because there's no oil for them here in that forsaken country!

They'd be over there in a jiffy if there was some thing that they could benefit for their trouble but no its just about a million Muslims! Collateral damage?

Obama won't care!

Neither would Romney or any other bugger who comes into power at the White House!

In the meantime, the world's so called rich flush with cash Arab leaders in the Middle Eastern countries would just twiddle away their time fingering their tasbih and looking the other way!

They have better things to do than to care for the Rohingya's. Looks like we will soon see the disappearance of a people from the face of this earth because NO ONE CARES!


Some of us fast for we wish to submit to the decree of Allah. Others like the Rohingya have no choice but to go without food and drinks as a result of becoming persona non grata in their own country! They are the most unfortunate people today on this Earth!

We who are living well here in Malaysia know not what others are going through all these while because we are living here in our land of plenty yet there are those amongst us who fail to count our blessings!

So, Ramadhan comes along to remind us to reflect and to repent. Cherish what we have before its all taken away either by external forces or by our own neglect and failure to take care of our own rights and those of our fellow Muslims and citizens of Malaysia.

Start realizing that Ramadhan is not just a month of fasting but also the month where we seek Allah's Forgiveness and Mercy.

Add value to our acts of worship by going about it in a sincere manner as possible and refrain from trying to make a media circus out of it like many aspiring politicians out there today are doing in this country.

Who are these great pretenders?

Why? You can see their banners festooned at every major traffic junction and by the roadsides.

As best as you can, avoid voting these parasites into power! Really! Stay away!

Meanwhile, to those who are observing all the do's and don'ts of this blessed month, do have a blessed Ramadhan.

Insya Allah.

As far as the Rohingya's fate is concerned, it is all up to the world's super powers and the ones wielding power. If they don't do something about the genocide taking place over there in Burma, the blood of the dying Rohingya's will be on their hands!

Khatib Jumaat yang tidak menghayati bacaan khutbah!

Assalamualaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh.

Ikhwanul Muslimin yang saya hormati sekelian,

Saya menunaikan Solat Jumaat saya hari ini di Masjid Azzubair Ibnul Awwam, Cheras, KL. Tajuk khutbah tadi adalah 'Perajurit Pilihan'. 
Di bacakan oleh seorang khatib yang nada suaranya mendatar memanjang dan tidak ada penghayatan sedikitpun sehingga saya melihat ramai yang mula lentok kepala dan terusnya tenggelam di alam mimpi!
Iye! Ini realiti semasa keadaan segelintir khatib khatib yang ada didalam negara kita yang memang tidak ada 'presentation skills' langsung! Sedar atau tidak tak tahu lah tetapi bagi saya amat mengecewakan sekali!
Khutbah Jumaat seharusnya disampaikan secara penuh semangat dan dihayati oleh khatib barulah isi khutbah akan sampai kepada para jamaah. 

Sudahlah intipati khutbah ditentukan oleh pihak Jabatan Agama Negeri yang berkenaan, penyampaian secara bacaan dengan nada mendatar dan tak ada jiwa oleh si-khatib tadi tidak dapat di hayati jamaah! 

Nampak seperti si khatib tidak betul betul faham akan apa dia yang sedang ia baca itu membuatkan jamaah mulai berat kelopak mata dan seperti biasa akan mula lena di alam mimpi. Tak ada 'connection langsung' dengan sidang hadirin jamaah Jumaat!

Saya rasa dah sampai masa JAKIM, MAIWP, JAIS dan segala Jabatan Agama  lain memastikan setiap khatib yang dilantik untuk membaca khutbah atau apa sahaja teks yang disediakan mereka mempunyai kebolehan membaca dengan lancar, mempunyai perwatakan yang boleh memikat perhatian jamaah dan faham tentang apa yang mereka sampaikan?

Jika tidak jadi macam tadi le. Ramai yang berdengkur...

* Jangan dok bagi alasan sedang berpuasa! Berpuasa tak semestinya dijadikan jalan keluar bagi penyampaian khutbah yang hambar seperti tadi!

Pranab Mukherjee ~ India's next 13th President! Congratulations!

India's 13th President elect Pranab Mukherjee
Congratulations are in order to India's 13th President-elect, 76 years old  Congress Party of India's led alliance presidential candidate Mr.Pranab Mukherjee who has been voted into power with a 69% thumping majority over the Bharatiya Janata Party's 64 years old Purno Agitok Sangma's 31%!
Purno Agitok Sangma
Mr.Pranab Mukherjee is a former Indian Minister of Finance whilst Mr.Sangma used to be the Speaker of The Lok Sabha ~ the Indian Parliament.
Vibuthi Agarwal
Click here to read The Wall Street Journal's report by it's Indian journalist Vibuthi Agarwal!

India is one of the world's largest democracy and is a land continuously in the news for its diverse population and ancient cultures.

It is also one of the world's most populous country with more than 1.22 billion people from various ethnic origins and hundreds of different languages and dialects being used and spoken.

It is a very dynamic developing country with one of the world's most booming Information Technology industry based in Bangalore, India's answer to the USA's Silicon Valley.

Some of the world's brightest leaders in computer technology hail from India and are the leading experts in the field of IT software research and development.

It's a land of many contrasts. Boasting of the emergence of many industry captains comprising of wealthy mega billionaires and also at the same time home to many of the world's poorest communities in sprawling urban slums spread in its mega cities! Remember Slumdog Millionaire? It's slums are real!
India is also a land that draws many Western backpacking adventure seekers who flock to it looking for spiritual fulfillment or just to satisfy their travel quest. I for one have enjoyed watching which shows a couple of backpackers travelling through India capturing sights and scenes which I don't think I will ever get to see on my own.

Yes, they are a bunch of irreligious guys acting crazy and going bananas during their travels but they have helped capture many sights and scenes on HD video showing us the real deal one has to face if one goes travelling to India, the throbbing and pulsating land containing mysteries and absurdities that can never be found elsewhere.

Indians also have weird habits and tendencies that at times borders on the eccentric and downright crazy! Like how this next video was filmed by someone with an obvious death wish standing right in the middle of the road filming oncoming traffic! :D

Don't miss watching how they clamber up onto the train roofs like nobody's business! Weirdos! :P Not forgetting the Bollywood and Kollywood superhuman stunts that they show in their never ending films! Hollywood would get traumatized looking at such out of this world stunts! Or die rolling on the studio floors laughing their heads off! :P

India, the land that used to be full of maharajahs, princes and princesses of many ancient kingdoms. Till they were all plundered and pillaged by the invading British Colonials who massacred millions of Indians, robbed, stole and shipped back home untold treasures of India during the British Raj! 

Even to this day, the priceless diamond Koh i Noor is still kept by the reigning Queen Elizabeth of the United Kingdom amongst Her Crown Jewels!
Koh i Noor Indian Diamond Stolen by the British Raj
From the Wikipedia:  The Kōh-i Nūr (Telugu: కోహినూరు, Hindi: कोहिनूर, Persian/Urdu: کوه نور ), meaning "Mountain of Light" in Persian language, also spelled Koh-i-noor, Koh-e Noor or Koh-i-Nur, is a 105.6 metric carats diamond, weighing 21.6 grammes in the most recent cut state, and once the largest known diamond. 
The Kōh-i Nūr is believed to have originated in the state of Andhra Pradesh in India together with its double, the Darya-ye Noor (the "Sea of Light"). The diamond has belonged to various Hindu, Rajput, Mughal, Persian, Afghan, Sikh and British rulers who fought bitterly over it and seized it as a spoil of war time and time again.
It was confiscated from Kharak Singh in 1850 by the British East India Company and became part of the British Crown Jewels when Queen Victoria was proclaimed Empress of India in 1877.
The diamond was traditionally known as Syamantaka-mani and later Madnayak or the "King of Jewels", before being renamed Kohinoor in 18th century by Ahmad Shah Abdali of Afghanistan. 

The diamond is currently set into the Crown of Queen Elizabeth and on display at the Tower of London.

If the British Monarchy had any ounce of self-dignity left in them, they would return the Koh-i-Noor diamond back home to India but then again there would be many, many more plundered treasures from all around the world that it would have to give up! Will it do so? Not a chance in hell!

India still holds many secrets that keeps the world's adventurers returning to seek it's mystifying bosom.

Good luck to President Pranab Mukherjee! You've got plenty to worry about from now sir! Stay healthy and sane.

Namaste saar! :)
