Kesopanan dan Kesusilaan - Tanggungjawab kita semua!

Zaman sekarang zaman orang biar anak! Biar anak anak leka dengan alat elektronik didalam bentuk telefon pintar atau tablet. 


Tak adanya di ajar tentang adat resam, adab, kesopanan dan kesusilaan.


Maka membesar lah anak anak itu buta dan jahil tentang cara cara membawa diri di khalayak ramai. Anak anak begini akan membesar jadi dewasa yang mementingkan diri sendiri dan tidak peduli tentang orang lain.

Sikap sebegini akan melahirkan sifat ego dan sombong diri. Rakus dan tidak menghormati hak hak orang lain dan mudah melenting, bergaduh dan mengeluarkan perkataan perkataan menjengkelkan serta kurang ajar kerana sudah biasa mendengar perkataan perkataan sebegitu diucapkan didalam media yang ditonton sehari harian.

Bak kata pepatah Melayu,'Alah bisa ; tegal biasa!' Sesuatu yang sering di dengar dan di saksikan akan menjadi kelaziman dan tidak merasa canggung lagi dengan nya.

Sikap dan sifat kasar serta biadap sudah menjadi lumrah bagi golongan seperti ini dan mereka tidakakan peduli tentang segala adat resam dan kelaziman kesopanan turun temurun.


'So what? Whatever!' menjadi sikap terpilih golongan kurang ajar dan biadap ini. Sikap suka menentang adat kesopanan dan kesusilaan yang menjadi salah satu Prinsip Rukunegara kita akan menular dari satu generasi kepada generasi yang lain sehingga akhirnya menjadi wabak yang menghancurkan jatidiri negara kita.

Maka, mahu tidak mahu, masyarakat kita perlu menghentikan pereputan nilai nilai murni yang menjadi asas peradaban kita masyarakat timur.

Andai kita alpa terhadap kewajipan mendidik anak2 kita secara apa yang menjadi adat resam dan warisan zaman berzaman maka akan ujud lah masyarakat pincang seperti yang terjadi kini di negara2 barat.

Di negara negara Barat, ikatan perkahwinan sudah jarang di amalkan dan telah lahir beratus juta anak anak di luar nikah. Anak anak ini lahir dan membesar secara tidak berayah dan mereka juga sering menjadi mangsa kepada pasangan pasangan ibu mereka yang sering bertukar. 

Institusi kekeluargaan yang menjadi teras masyarakat sudah semakin pupus di negara negara yang konon nya sudah mencapai kemajuan dari segi sains dan teknologi tetapi mundur dari segi kesopanan dan kesusilaan.

Malaysia perlu mengekang gejala kehancuran adat resam serta kepupusan nilai nilai kemanusiaan. Tidak ada salahnya kita bersopan santun, berbudi bahasa serta bertimbang rasa sesama kita.

Tak jatuh 'standard' andai bersifat budiman dan prihatin terhadap orang lain. Bersikap murni dan berbelas kasihan sesama manusia dan juga haiwan tidak akan menjatuhkan status seseorang malah menaikkan lagi imej ia di mata masyarakat.

Saya ingin menyeru anda ibubapa sekelian supaya kasihankan anak anak anda. Jangan membiarkan cahaya mata anda membesar menjadi orang orang yang bakal menjahanamkan masyarakat.
Sukakah anda jika anak anda bakal di katakan 'Kurang ajar! Biadap! Syaitan!' dan sebagai nya nanti bila ia berkelakuan menyalahi kelaziman timur kita nanti?

Ingat! Melentur buluh itu biar dari masa ianya masih di tahap rebung. Bila sudah mengeras menjadi buluh, sudah terlambat!

Hijabsta Ballet ~ Mahaguru58 says everyone should watch this eye opening movie!


Hijabsta Ballet, a Syed Zulkifli Syed Masir @ Syed Zul Tojo movie due to be released for screening in cinemas nationwide on the 3rd of August, 2017 is a movie that everyone should go and watch at their local cinemas!

Hijabsta Ballet's synopsis : Adele, a talented young dancer, lives to full her mother’s dream of becoming a renowned ballerina. 

Awarded a scholarship for a world-class Russian ballet school, she is on her way to great success, until a traumatic experience prompts her to make a life-changing decision that was already in the forefront of her mind. 

Adele takes the hijab, claiming she will become the best muslim ballerina. Her mother is heartbroken, her friends are confused and both the ballet scene and the Muslim community reject her. 

Worse still, as word of her ambition spreads she faces serious threat from Jihadi fundamentalists.

This is one movie that is so fitting to address the needless Islamophobia that is raging across the world due to the ignorance about the significance of the Hijab worn by Believing Muslim Women worldwide and which every Islamophobe and otherwise ought to watch to understand the Hijab better.

I was invited to attend an exclusive preview of this eye opening movie by my FINAS Screenwriting Workshop alumni Roziah Ahmad, on behalf of Hijabsta Ballet's Director / Co-Writer and Producer Tuan Syed Zulkifli also known as Syed Zul Tojo in the Malaysian Film Industry. 

The 10.30am screening was held at the MM Cineplex, eCurve, Mutiara Damansara this morning. 

I wish to say that Hijabsta Ballet is a refreshing change from the mindless crap that the Malaysian Creative Industry had been churning out lately in the form of nonsensical and at times totally absurd so called movies in the local Malay film category.

Hijabsta Ballet opens up a whole new window enabling those who are clueless as to why the Hijab is commanded by Allah the Almighty to be worn by the Believing Women in Islam and why it is important that people understand the significance and importance of the Hijab for Muslimahs?


Let's watch a teaser of this refreshing movie:


Syed Zul Tojo was interviewed on BERNAMA's Hello Malaysia TV program about his movie. This is Part 1 of the interview.


Part 2

Another short teaser of Hijabsta Ballet. The Audio is first class! I really enjoyed the awesome sound systems in the MM Cineplex, Curve Mutiara Damansara. 


This groundbreaking film has its storyline similar to Stephanie Kurlow, a real life young Australian revert to Islam teenage ballerina who faced challenges in her chosen field to dance and perform ballet whilst adorning her Hijab @ Head Covering commanded by Almighty Allah upon the Believing Muslim women in Surah An Nur Chapter 24 Verse 31 in the Al Quran Al Karim.

And tell the believing women to reduce [some] of their vision and guard their private parts and not expose their adornment except that which [necessarily] appears thereof and to wrap [a portion of] their headcovers over their chests and not expose their adornment except to their husbands, their fathers, their husbands' fathers, their sons, their husbands' sons, their brothers, their brothers' sons, their sisters' sons, their women, that which their right hands possess, or those male attendants having no physical desire, or children who are not yet aware of the private aspects of women. And let them not stamp their feet to make known what they conceal of their adornment. And turn to Allah in repentance, all of you, O believers, that you might succeed."
                                                                                                   Allah, God Almighty


Hijabsta Ballet is Syed Zul Tojo's gift to the cinema going audience here in multi-ethnic, multi-faithed and multi-cultural Malaysia, our beloved nation and homeland which really needs refreshing films such as this to open up the closed mindsets of those who out of ignorance tend to wrongly associate our Islamic sense of dressing and appearance to the misdeeds and wrongful actions of a few deluded individuals who misinterpret God's Commandments and wage a mindless war against others without a valid reason.

Mohd Filus Ghazali, Hijabsta Ballet's Cinematographer and Director of Photography brilliantly captures the wonderful sights and sounds of our rural areas well and the whole movie is a delight to watch.

I will be updating this review with a video interview that I conducted with the film's Director / Producer/ Co-Writer Syed Zul Tojo,  Haji Thorpe Ali, his Asst. Director / Co-Producer/ Co-Writer and Mohd Filus Ghazali, Hijabsta Ballet's Cinematographer and Director of Photography once it's processed and ready for viewing.

I wish Syed Zul Tojo and his team the very best success with this out of the norm refreshing new movie which touches on an important issue with the rising Islamophobia in the world and will help share the reality with regard to a Muslim woman's right to cover her modesty in accordance to Allahu Ta'ala's Command and to raise awareness about this apparel to cover one's modesty when in the general public area.

Hijabsta Ballet ~ a thought provoking current issue that needs to be seen worldwide.

Bahasa Kebangsaan cuba dipinggirkan. Usaha Menteri Kesihatan buka pintu belakang?

Kerajaan patut mewajibkan kemahiran Bahasa Malaysia didalam setiap urusan yang melibatkan sebarang keistimewaan kerakyatan negara ini.
Bagi mendapatkan MyKad dan Paspot Malaysia harus di wajibkan sipemohon lulus Ujian Kemahiran Berbahasa Melayu selaras dengan keperluan mendaulatkan Bahasa Melayu sebagai Bahasa Kebangsaan kita.

Pemohon kerakyatan Malaysia juga mesti lulus Ujian Rukunegara dan mampu menyanyikan Lagu Kebangsaan Malaysia serta faham akan makna setiap lirik Lagu Kebangsaan kita.
Adalah amat memalukan bilamana seseorang yang mengaku diri sebagai Rakyat dan Warganegara Malaysia gagal bertutur serta faham akan Bahasa Melayu sebagai teras komunikasi negara kita ini.
Tidak boleh berkompromi didalam perkara ini.
Begitu juga dengan kelulusan pengajian didalam negara. Setiap pelajar mesti diwajibkan lulus matapelajaran Bahasa Melayu sebelum di anugerahkan sebarang sijil, diploma, ijazah atau sarjana didalam pendidikan.
Titik.
Sepatutnya sebagai seorang warganegara dan rakyat Malaysia harus boleh bertutur dan berhubung dengan baik sesama kita dengan Bahasa Malaysia tetapi sebaliknya ada golongan yang tidak sedar diri di untung lahir dan hidup di bumi bertuah ini enggan untuk berkomunikasi didalam Bahasa Kebangsaan kita.
Bangla dan Nepal serta Myanmar dan lain lain pendatang berbangsa asing dengan mudah menguasai Bahasa Malaysia dan fasih didalam nya.
Namun mereka yang memegang MyKad serta Paspot Malaysia enggan berbuat demikian. Begitu sekali kebencian mereka terhadap Kedaulatan Bahasa Kebangsaan kita.

Mujur lah Kabinet Kerajaan Malaysia membatalkan keputusan Menteri Kesihatan merangkap Presiden MIC yang cuba membuka pintu belakang untuk golongan pelajar perubatan yang tidak mampu untuk bertutur dan faham Bahasa Kebangsaan kita.


Soalnya sekarang, adakah Kerajaan Najib Razak berani menguatkuasakan cadangan cadangan saya ini?
Jawapan nya tuan/puan sedia maklum. :P
Mustahil le jawabnya. 😆

Everything you have ever desired is sitting on the other side of your willpower ~ Haji Zainol Abideen


Isn't that the truth? 

We all do desire for things that we often choose to forget because we do not follow through with the rightful actions in acquiring such things or in a simpler way to describe it is because we just lack the willpower to go for it.

Not to say that we can't get it if we really put our hearts and mind to it but more so due to our unwillingness to get out of our comfort zone to get it.

Let's say for instance that I who am about to reach 60 next year want to at least have a Masters Degree in English? If I really put my heart and mind to it, that would be not impossible.

Given that Senior Citizens are accorded certain privileges and benefits in pursuing further education by way of discounted study fees by the universities and colleges of our country as well as those which are located overseas.

The crux of the matter is all up to me. Where there's a will, Insya Allah, there will be a way. Some say that 60 is just a number, it's all entirely up to yours truly whether I want to go for it?

Back to my topic, if we really want to achieve something, there is no other way to do it except to get out of our comfort zone and go do what is needed to get it!
