Part of the Do'a Iftitah

"Verily my solats, my ibadah, my life and my death I surrender to Almighty Allah, Creator and Lord of all the worlds. Never will I associate anything with Him. So am I commanded and I am of those who are Muslims."

Starting all over again ~ Fresh start to the rest of your life.

Not all marriages last forever. Reason being that not everyone marries out of love. Some marry because they were forced out of some circumstances which they found themselves in.

Some marry out of pity. Some marry because they were indebted to the family of the husband or the wife. Some were duped into marrying on false promises.

Staying married but not in love:

Couples who live together but not in love do so for the sake of their children if they have them. Each would swallow whatever heartache and misery they were going through in a loveless forced union just for the children's interests.

If such a union was to be symbolised, you could equate it to a leaking boat caught in a doldrum waiting for a sudden tempest to break loose out there in the dark stormy ocean of marital chaos.

Reason for Depression:

Either way you are going down into the deep, dark depths of doom and gloom of the broken human heart. Depression and despair can overcome even the brightest of personalities and the smartest individuals that ever lived.

Unless.. just unless the couple breaking apart have it in them to stay afloat, rising from the gloomy depths of heartbreaking day to day conflicts and confrontations that eventually does take place between the two that finally drives the wedge through the union rendering it apart!

Not everyone has it in them to survive a breakup, separation and eventual divorce. 

Unless one has some stash of reserve spirit to be used in times of the most devastating calamities such as the moment one has no choice but to pull the plug, a divorce can knock the wind out of you and that dear brothers and sisters has in many cases driven quite a number of persons to take their own life.

Driven to suicide:

Commit that irreversible act of ending their existence here on Earth by choice. End it all. To hell with it. They lost hope. So be it. 

Depending on the weakness or strength of conviction of the person's sense of awareness of his or her religious beliefs, taking their own life has been the choice of the disillusioned few. 

Luckily for those of us who are Muslims, Islam strongly forbids suicide and anyone who does so will go straight to hell. No if's or but's about it. 

Surah An Nisa Chapter 4 Verse 29, Al Quran Al Karim:


And do not kill yourselves [or one another]. Indeed, Allah is to you ever Merciful.

I know it is easy for me to say so because maybe I am a tough cookie and quite weathered over the years having gone through the 'School of Hard Knocks' and in a way graduated from the 'University of Life'.

Not everyone has it in him or herself to be able to weather the storms that life throws at you. Even those whom we all thought were quite successful in their careers and life at times have taken the easy way out by ending their life.

Example: 

 A case in point is the suicide of actor comedian superstar Robin Williams. He had everything that anyone can wish for but he wasn't happy in his life. 

He was the world's best comedian and we all enjoyed his amazing ability to liven up every show, event or movie that he starred in. Little did anyone know how miserable he was inside until he was found after having choked himself to death!

Way out:

Whether you like it or not, the only way out is Divorce.

You get a chance to start afresh albeit you might have to give up all your hard-earned wealth or title rights to jointly acquired properties or real estate.



You may even lose your rights to your children [if they are under-aged] because the Divorce courts always grants the mother custodial rights over you.

Except in special cases where the children might be in danger IF the mother is a drug addict, convicted felon, psychiatric patient, mentally disturbed, etcetera.

Thus, it does require you to give up on what you own and maybe your rights to your own flesh and blood ~ your children but for the sake of you to get a chance to live in peace and remain sane, sometimes you just have to bite the bullet so to speak and get out of that hellish marriage in order to be able to be free once again.
There is no other way. Divorce is at times better than to be bogged down in a loveless marriage full of strife and mayhem. 

Yes, you lose your children but the fact remains that they will forever be your own flesh and blood is irrefutable. See to it that their welfare is taken care of by surrendering whatever earthly material @ sustenance that you can afford to provide for their upkeep and maintenance is given to them.

It is true that they will miss out on your being there to love and care for them. It is true that they will not have you to comfort them and give them your fatherly support unlike their friends whose parents were not separated and were living in peace together in matrimony.

No one likes to be forced to leave their children but if it is the only way out for the father to remain sane and alive, then that is the sacrifice that they have to do.

The hurt is felt by both the father and the children but there is no other way to escape the situation where quarrels and fights take place almost daily or every other day due to the incompatibility between the unhappy couple.

Estrangement is the subsequent situation that comes into being as a result of the divorce but eventually the children will grow up and turn into adults themselves and maybe..just maybe they will have it in them to understand why their father was forced to leave them?

Nothing is more precious to a divorced parent than to have his children forgive and understand him for having to leave them but if he didn't, maybe they would have lost him forever for he might be forced to end his life and leave this life forever.

Islam forbids suicide but there have been cases where even Muslims chose to call it quits and do the unthinkable because they did not have the commonsense to end their unhappy marriage and start all over again..albeit lose their hard gained earthly material possessions and beloved children just so that they can start life all over again.

To those to whom this article might concern, do know that your father loves you forever and that he did so in order that he might get a second chance to live in peace and tranquility. He has suffered enough. 

Give him a chance to spend the remaining moments of his life with a better more understanding wife than having to suffer to his last breath with someone who doesn't appreciate him despite all that he had done for the family.



He deserves that.

'Seri Paduka Baginda Yang Di-Pertuan Agong Tunjang Kekuatan Islam di dalam Negara Malaysia!'


Tajuk Khutbah Jumaat tadi- 'Seri Paduka Baginda Yang Di-Pertuan Agong Tunjang Kekuatan Islam di dalam Negara Malaysia!'

Kita dengar memang sedap dan teruja. Namun ada persoalan didalam hati kecil ini.

Sekian lama ni kita dok dengar dan dok baca serta menonton pelbagai kecaman, penghinaan dan cercaan ke atas institusi keagamaan dan pelecehan yang di lakukan kelompok pembangkang terutamanya dari DAP dan baru baru ini dari pihak parti komponen Barisan Nasional sendiri seperti dari MCA, MIC dan GERAKAN yang turut menmpersoalkan kedudukan Islam di dalam Perlembagaan Malaysia sebagai Agama Rasmi Persekutuan dan mereka turut menentang keras pelaksanaan Undang Undang Shariah didalam Negara kita ini.
"Malaysia bukan sebuah negara Islam!"  Lim Kit Siang

Punya lah ramai nya para ilmuan dan ulama' Islam di dalam negara ini TETAPI mereka diam menikus bilamana ada sekelumit cacing kerawit dan ular lidi mula nak jadi Naga di Mamluk al Malaisie ini!



Kadang kadang saya terbayang mereka ini bagaikan Zionis Israel yang mengganas terhadap orang orang Palestin walaupun mereka di kelilingi oleh negara negara Arab di Timur Tengah itu!


Saya sedar bahawa ada di antara pemimpin Melayu dan yang mengaku beragama Islam SANGGUP memperhambakan diri kepada pemimpin2 Kuffar seperti Lim Kit Siang dan sekutu2 nya demi mendapatkan pangkat dan kedudukan kuasa politik di Malaysia ini.

Syukur Alhamdulillah satu persatu jendalu jendalu ini tumbang angkara gejolak nafsu mereka sendiri! Kita sebagai umat Islam di Malaysia harus sedar dan waspada terhadap petualang bangsa dan agama sendiri!

Saya tahu bahawa Duli-Duli Yang Maha Mulia Seri Paduka Baginda Yang Di-Pertuan Agong sebelum ini tidak ada sedikit pun bertitah membela Ad Deenul Islam dan Kedaulatan Shariah Allah apabila ada suara2 mungkar seperti dari Lim Kit Siang [DAP] begitu berani mempersoalkan kesucian Islam di Malaysia.

Saya menunggu apakah Duli Yang Maha Mulia Seri Paduka Baginda Yang Di-Pertuan Agong ke 15 Malaysia yaini Sultan Muhammad V akan menegur mereka semua ini nanti?

Adultery ~ If Christians really practiced their Biblical Laws, almost 90% of the USA, UK, Europe will perish!

These are not my words! They are sourced from the Christian Bible itself. Click here to see for yourselves.



Yet today, most of the modern world are zooming in onto the misdeeds of those few ignorants so called Muslims who abuse and misrepresent the faith of the billion over true practicing Muslims and start accusing Islamic Sharia as being harsh and barbaric!
Here in Malaysia, every now and then, my fellow Muslims especially amongst the Dakwah activists, the alarm would go off amongst them that the Christians especially the Evangelists and Missionaries are actively brainwashing the weak ones amongst the Muslim masses into Christianity!

Allahyarham Sheikh Ahmed Deedat had very easily defeated these so called Christian Evangelists and the Missionaries during his lifetime! 

His comprehensive knowledge and mastery of the Al-Qur'an and Bible plus many other Scriptures often catches these evangelists and missionaries plus Biblical scholars dumbfounded and tongue tied when Sheikh Deedat nails them to their cross [figuratively speaking of course] and exposes their lies and deceit!



Use the published verses [like the ones above] from the Christians own Bibles [Old Testament, New Testament, Revised Standard Version, Etc.] and nail them down where they cant squeeze themselves out from the reality of their fellow Christians screwups! Click here to read the statistics about their Infidelity!

Has any Christian country dared to uphold what their own Biblical Laws prescribe as the rightful punishment for adultery? 

Anyone here has any knowledge of such a case where the Christians have practiced what they preach to the world?

Please enlighten me.

Occasionally we hear of cases where someone apostatizes from the Islamic Faith and the whole nation is up in arms over this murtad and there are calls to put him or her to death.

In Islam, the method to deal with such cases of apostasy, is for the religious authorities of the land to counsel the apostate to return to the faith and believe in Allah.

If the apostate refuses and remains firm in his or her disbelief, the authorities are to give him or her at least 3 more chances before putting the said apostate to death.

In the Bible, Book of Deuteronomy Verses 8-9, it calls for the same punishment!

Behold:


So, why all the nationwide brouhaha by the Disbelievers out there when the Islamic Sharia calls for the same punishment for those who apostate from believing in Allah and call such a law as barbaric?

Actually there are too many verses and descriptions in the Bible which are quite vulgar and pornographic in nature which I am not comfortable in disclosing them here.

Does Evidence undermine Religion? How do we believe in Allah @ God Almighty?


Quite an interesting discussion between 'intellectuals' from different backgrounds and religious beliefs discussing and arguing between themselves in a civilized manner without resorting to fisticuffs or shedding blood.

As a Muslim, I realize that having faith in Allah is the bedrock of my faith in Him, the Unseen God and Supreme Creator of us all and the entire universes.

To be a Muslim or Believer, one has to attest that there is no other god except Allahu Rabbul Alamin (Allah, Lord of the Universes).

That is the first part of the Syahadah (Declaration of Faith). I then have to attest that Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Alaihi Wassallam (May all blessings of Allah be upon him) is the [Final] Messenger of Allah.

In my studies of my faith, I have come to learn that there were altogether 124,000 prophets of Allah and 25 of them are mentioned by name in the Qur'an [Final Scripture] revealed to our Blessed Rasul Muhammad [the Greatest Messenger of Allah].

It's now 2017. 1385 years after his death. 

We Muslims believe that there are no more prophets or messengers of Allah who will be sent to mankind except for the Prophet Isa ibnu Maryam @ Eesa al Masih whom the Christians address and 'worship' wrongfully as Jesus Christ ~ the 'Son of God' by virtue of his being born to a virgin @ Maryam the daughter of Prophet Zakariyya. The 'Virgin' Mary.

Is our belief in Allah the Unseen God a blind faith?

How do we explain such a faith?

How can I tell you why I believe that Allah is real and not a figment of my vivid imagination?

Did I see Allah? Feel His Presence? Come across any such evidences of His Existence?

Well, it all goes back to the essence of how one believes?

What is the proof that I am alive and so are you? Here I am typing in real time these words coming out from my thoughts conjured up by the process that goes on in my living brain.

I am able to see and read these arrangement of alphabets into words and author these sentences. With the intelligence, knowledge and logic that I have come to possess through my years of learning and rationale throughout my coming into existence since early [maybe conception in February and born in early October 1958] I write this article to make sense to you and me in pondering over this topic, I am here in the very sense of the word. Evidence of my being [in the 3rd realm of my existence, of course].

Present. Delivering to you my exact thoughts and views about the subject. How does that relate to my earlier question as to how do I explain Allah @ God Almighty?

Behold Surah Al-Isra' Chapter 17 Verse 110, Qur'an Al Karim.

The subject of having faith in Allah goes back to learning, knowing and believing in His Attributes. I came to know about this when I studied about Allah. The Prophet Muhammad relayed to us all that there is to know about Allah.

Watch and learn about the 99 Most Beautiful Names [Asma'ul Husna] and Attributes of Allah [Sifat'ullah] which has been revealed to us Mankind through Prophet Muhammad, the Greatest Messenger of Allah:


Those who have knowledge and intelligence in them will surely be able to understand and relate to what is being shared about the attributes of Our Creator.

Isa ibnu Maryam [Jesus the son of Mary] definitely did not declare himself to be the 'Son of God' and it is only the corruption of his teachings that led to such false belief which has come to be known as 'Christ'ianity.

He did not die on the Roman cross but was taken up into the heavens as revealed below in the Surah Al-Imran Chapter 3 Verse 55 where Allah clearly says that Allah will take and raise Isa up to Himself pending Isa's return to this Earth to clear all such disbelief upon himself and to uphold the Deen @ Faith of Islam.


Back to the matter of 'faith' in Allah the Unseen God.

Now, let me ask you as to how do you prove to others that you are here and alive?

That you are existing and not a fictitious character. That you are alive, breathing, seeing, thinking, capable of speech and action, feeling and able to perform all other actions that you choose to do.

Looking at ourselves in the physical form will surely help to confirm to those who are seeking the answers to that matter of proving and showing evidence of your being alive and present.

Bt how do you explain your essence of being? That there is and exists an unseen force of life within you that is known as the 'Ruuh' @ 'Soul?'

Can you see your soul?

Definitely not. But feel it? Maybe yes to those who are in the know and possess the powers to think and process these types of information.

Who gave us life? Did it just come into being by it's own?

Why is it that even the best of the world's greatest scientists, doctors and master surgeons often throw up their hands in futility and say 'It is in God's Hands' when they run out of options in saving a patient's life or whoop in joy singing praises to the Almighty when the patient starts breathing again after being in a coma or just completed an operation or surgical procedure?

Allah Exists for those who choose to believe in Him. Those who deny Him are living on borrowed time. Whose Time? Given by the Grace and Mercy of Allah even though they disbelieved!

I have yet to see a human being who when being in such a position of authority be as Generous and So Unbelievably Most Merciful as this Supreme Lord of the entire Universes!

Subhanallah! All praises be to Allah!

I can just go on and on and on in sharing about Allah but guess this will suffice for now.

Please don't just take my word for it. Do study. Read the right books and search for the right resources. Use your God given intellect to save yourselves and those who are under your guardianship in learning more about Allah.

You have the right to be His Worshiper. Don't gamble your remaining precious life away.

May Allah bless and guide us all.

Ameen.

Bursa Iman ~ Naik turun nya tahap Keimanan kita.

Pagi tadi saya bersarapan di Restoran Nasi Kandar Kampong Pandan Maju, Tesco Extra Ampang dan sempat berbual dengan sahabat saya Tuan Jafarullah Khan, tuanpunya restoran berkenaan.

Di antara bahan perbualan kami, ada saya sentuh tentang naik turunnya tahap keimanan kita selaku umat Islam di Akhirul Zaman ini.

Boleh dikatakan sama sahaja seperti sesebuah Bursa Saham. Cumanya ini lebih kepada 'Bursa Iman'. Ada kalanya tahap keimanan kita terhadap Allahu Rabbi begitu tinggi sehingga kita sudah sedia berada di masjid sebelum masuk waktu solat fardhu yang berkenaan. 



Tok Bilal belum sempat melaungkan azan, kita sudah siap berwudhu' dan berada di saf pertama dengan penuh tawadhuk dan menghayati setiap lafaz zikrullah yang bibir kita sempat lafazkan! Subhanallah!





Tetapi ada kalanya tahap keimanan kita turun mendadak sehingga kita alpa dan lalai untuk menyahut panggilan Ilahi tepat pada waktunya sehingga kita melewat lewatkan fardhu solat dan amal ibadah kita sehingga ke akhir waktu.

Makanya kita hendaklah berusaha untuk memastikan 'Bursa Iman' kita tidak merudum jatuh  dengan cara memastikan nilai nilai keimanan kita sentiasa di kemaskini dan tidak di biarkan kering kontang akibat alpa pada ibadah yang wajib dan yang sunat.

Sesungguhnya nikmat beriman hanya akan kita rasai bila kita menghayati erti setiap amal dan ibadat yang kita lakukan. Tanpa mengerti akan maksud dan makna setiap amalan yang kita lakukan akan menyebabkan kita tidak merasakan kemanisan Iman itu. 

Bagaikan makanan tanpa perisa. Tawar dan kosong semata mata. 

Mudah2an saham Bursa Iman kita semua sentiasa tip top dan memperolehi baraqah dari Allahu Ta'ala! Amin ya Rabb. :)
