Lately, the attacks against Islamic fundamentals such as the Christian demands to use the term 'Allah' to describe their Trinitarian concept of what they claim to be their '3 in 1' God is due to the fact that the so called 'Keepers of Islam' here in Malaysia couldn't care less about the sanctity and sacredness of Islam here in our country to ensure that no such blasphemy is accorded to Allahu Rabbul Alamin.
We have to face the fact that when it comes to the matters concerning Islam, it falls under the jurisdiction of the Malay Sultans who are empowered by the Constitution of Malaysia to oversee to its sanctity.
When the Catholic Church of Malaysia decided to use the term 'Allah' to replace the proper translation of the word 'God' in their Malay language bibles distributed in Sabah and Sarawak, the Malay Sultans and namely the Yang Di-Pertuan Agong being the Supreme Ruler and Head of Islam here in Malaysia ought to have issued a decree prohibiting such an action.
But the Malay Sultans ignored the matter and kept mum. Nor did they as a whole voiced out against it until the Sultan of Selangor issued forth an edict prohibiting the usage of the term 'Allah' by any Non Muslims in his state. I for one applaud the Selangor Sultan for his reaction.
The Department for the Development of Islam or JAKIM as it is known by its Malay acronym seems powerless to act because in reality they are 'toothless tigers'. They only dare to take action against the small fry whilst the marauding behemoths are left to stir trouble as they please!
It all boils down to the very top of our Malaysian society.
You see, if the Sultans and the Executive powers that be were to uphold the true Syariah laws that have been commanded to us who are the Believers in Allah the Almighty and in his Final Messenger, the blessed Prophet Muhammad Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam, then they can't live in such extravagance and splendor as they are currently enjoying at the expense of the ummah!
All those palaces, lavish lifestyle will have to be surrendered and live moderately as per the true teachings of Muhammad Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam.
The same goes to the Keepers of the Haramain in Makkah al Mukarramah and Madinah al Munawwarah in Arabia! They too are squandering the bounty of precious oil that Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala has blessed them with!
Instead of helping the poor and oppressed Muslims of the world, the Saudis totally ignore the plight of their brothers and sisters in the neighboring war torn countries and just put up a facade of being holy moly when in reality, behind those high palace walls, all kinds of frivolity and sin takes place daily!
Even our Sultans are infamous for holding soirees and all such crap when they are beyond our borders!
No wonder some so called ustaz from PAS is predicting that by 2030, the Malay Sultans here will become obsolete and history!
You want to know why the Catholic Christians here get to be so big headed and insist that the BN Government kowtow to their demands to name their 3 in 1 Trinity concept of what they believe to be 'god' as 'Allah'?
Its because our Sultans have not truly lived up to their roles as the Keepers of Islam in Mamluk al Malaisie! They have been unfortunately afflicted by the 'See No Evil! Speak No Evil and Hear No Evil' syndrome.
At the moment there seems to be no cure for this malady except a visitation by Sayyidina Izra'il Alaihis Salam.
Who is that?
Why? Who else but the Archangel of Death!
But even if the Angel of Death comes a calling, the wiseguys we have here masquerading as our Heads of Islam, might just try and 'slow talk' the angel.
I don't think that's gonna work!
