Benarkah?

Assalamualaikum w.b.tBismillahirrahmanirrahim"Demi masa. Sesungguhnya manusia itu dalam kerugian. Kecuali orang-orang yang beriman dan beramal soleh dan berpesan dengan kebenaran dan berpesan dengan kesabaran" surah Al Asr ayat 1-3.Saat mendukacitakan bagi umat Islam di Malaysia sudah tiba. Satu demi satu gerakan licik puak kafirun menampakkan hasil bagi menindas dan menjatuhkan martabat agama Islam. Namun umat Islam di Malaysia masih ramai yang lena di ulit mimpi indah duniawi sehingga tidak menghiraukan langsung tentang agama Allah yang semakin terhimpit.Saya baru sahaja menghubungi Jabatan Pendaftaran Negara Malaysia di Putrajaya.
Soalan yang saya tanyakan kepada pegawai disana ialah, " Benarkah di sijil kelahiran bayi tidak lagi dinyatakan status agama bagi bayi tersebut?"Jawapannya, "Benar. Bermula dari bulan Jun 2006. Ini adalah kerana bayi tersebut berhak menentukan agamanya sendiri apabila berusia 18 tahun."Terkejut, geram, sedih, marah... semuanya bersarang di dada saya sekarang ini. Apa nak jadi dengan Malaysia hari ini? Bukankah ini salah satu tuntutan dari memorandum yang dihantar oleh menteri-menteri kafirun kepada Perdana Menteri Hadhari dan juga salah satu tuntutan pihak Artikel 11?Ke mana hala tuju negara Islam Hadhari ini sebenarnya? Kita di larang membincangkan isu Artikel 11, murtad dan isu-isu sensitif atas dasar perpaduan dan keselamatan negara. Di sebaliknya pihak kerajaan menurut apa saja yang di minta oleh pihak kafirun. Berapa lama lagi kita harus membiarkan diri kita dan umat Islam terus di tipu? Masih belum sedarkah kita? Sampai bila? Cuba kita pejamkan mata dan kita fokuskan ingatan kita pada wajah-wajah anak-anak kita. Sanggupkah kita membayangkan anak kita datang bertemu kita suatu hari nanti dalam keadaan murtad? Nauzubillah.Sedarlah wahai umat Islam. Bangunlah. Paling tidak, bila tiba masa kita diberikan hak untuk mengundi memilih kerajaan... fikirkanlah semasak-masaknya. Janganlah hanya memandang kepada keindahan duniawi yang sementara ini. Janji dan omong kosong yang terbit dari mulut pemimpin yang langsung tidak mengambil berat dan melindungi agama Allah. Sedarlah semua..........Wallahua'lam

An Open Letter To Malik Imtiaz Sarwar



You are a betrayer to the Muslim ummah and to this nation which espouses Islam as the religion of the Federation.
This is the conclusion that I reached after reading
your article, in defence of a heinous crime that even the first Caliph waged open war against, behind the slogans of so-called "human rights" and "freedom of religion". You are a traitor, one of the worst of which the humankind could ever produce. It is no wonder therefore why there are some who, rightly or wrongly, distributed a poster of your face with the words "WANTED DEAD". Perhaps the poster you mentioned is a different version from the one in my possession, since there is no mention of the word "DEAD" in the poster that I have. I am tempted to put up that poster here but since this has become a police case, I have no wish to become an accessory in a criminal act.
In any case, Sir, you brought this controversy upon yourself.
Do not get me wrong, however. I will never condone the so-called "death threats" against you, despite our different perspectives on how we view the issue of Lina Joy. You promote apostasy from Islam and condone the shirk of a Muslim woman; thus breaking a mother's heart. You should be ashamed of yourself. Even calling you a "Satan in a human face" is an insult to Satan himself, because even Satan acknolwedges the Creator.
No words will, however, express my utter disdain, disgust and abhorrence at your act of treason to the ummah. However I will not wish any form of violence or death to be upon you, simply because it is Islamically disdainful and goes against the teachings of the Holy Book and the Sunnah of the Rasul. But I will oppose you with every means I have at my disposal through education and activitism without resorting to lawlessness and violence.
Truth is on my side, Sir. It is not on yours.

Yours sincerely.

MENJ
**i took this from www.menj.org and may i quote one of the replies:
Linus,
I support MENJ in your questions for
1.”You are a traitor, one of the worst of which the humankind could ever produce”, and
If you are indeed a Muslim, and you very well know that apostasy is a CRIME heinous in Islam, and you go all out to support an apostate. Not only he is supporting an apostate, but also dodging her from the punishment of her crime. And to go to the furthest extent of trying to bend the rules of Islam and rape the rights of God to bow to human rights.
Of course, there is NO COMPULSION in Islam. We cannot change a person’s heart to accept Islam or believe in it, but this is NOT the point here. The point here that apostasy is a CRIME, a BETRAYAL in Islam. A BETRAYAL to the community of Islam and the religion itself.
This is not a question of free will. Again, it is about a punishment of a crime. If you uphold the so called rights of free will, then everyone on earth can do what they please without the need for punishment. There’s free will. Can we rob your house? Of course, it’s OUR WILL to rob your house.
2. “Do not Christians, Jews, Hindus and let me be so bold to say Buddhists believe in a higher being? Once again I think the Quoran categorises people into 3-believer, disbeliever and hypocrite. Is it wrong to accept the widest definition of believer, that is, all who believe in Allah, God, Brahma, a higher being, a supreme force.”
Again, I think MENJ has already told you that not all paths leads to Rome. The answer is NO. A believer professes IMAN to Allah and Rasulullah. Remember the Shahadah, There is no God but Allah and Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah. So how can a buddhist, hindu, who say that God is (insert Brahma, whatever here) be the same as a Muslim, who said that God is ALLAH?
I ask you a simple logical question. If indeed so Allah did categorize a believer as those who just believe in God, then why the heck would He send down the Quran and have Muhammad as a Messenger?
3. Islam uphold the rights of God and His Prophet, and not individual rights. Therefore, it is in every MUSLIM duty to uphold the rights of Allah and His Prophet. In this case, yes, it is US VS THEM. There are only two types of People - believers and disbelievers, Muslim and Kafir.
Safiyyah
**as pertaining to this, i got nothing to comment about as i only know a few about this Malik person. He was once my lecturer's senior in iium. Perhaps all he wants to do is making a difference. As he said ... "I like people..I see them as individuals. That's what human right is all about - understanding each other as individuals. I'm not ready to say I've lost my faith in humanity. If I take that position, there's no point doing this work". He believes that what he is doing keep him going in his vocation - fighting for basic human rights. For me personally, whatever a muslim does, he must do it in a muslim way by not abandoning a littest thing out of it. Whoever we are, students or lecturers, employers or employees, lawyers or clients, we must remember the fact that we are only devotees, and that there's only one God who created us and the world we live in, that is Allah.

What My Lil' Sis Said

The shortest distance between a problem and a solution is the distance between your knees and the floor. The one who kneels to the Allah, can stand up to anything. Insha'Allah

...No Decision Yet...


Court has yet to decide on Lina Joy’s appeal

PUTRAJAYA: There will be no decision yet on Lina Joy’s appeal to the Federal Court against the Court of Appeal’s majority decision on Sept 19 last year which ruled that the National Registration Department director-general was right in not allowing her application to delete the word “Islam” from her identity card.

Chief Justice Tun Ahmad Fairuz Sheikh Abdul Halim said the three-man bench comprising himself, Chief Judge of Sabah and Sarawak, Datuk Richard Malanjum and Federal Court judge Datuk Alauddin Mohd Sheriff needed time to look into the submissions by the parties carefully because the issue was sensitive.

He said the judges had to consider the submissions of every non-governmental organisation (NGO) that was represented by counsel in the appeal.

The NGOs included the Malaysian Council for Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism and Sikhism; Hakam, Malaysian Women Lawyers Association and National Council of Women’s Organisation, All Women’s Action Society, Sisters In Islam, Women’s Aid Organisation, Women’s Centre for Change and Women’s Development Collective.

“That is why we need to have some time. We can’t rush this thing. We have to be very careful when we write our reasons,” he said.

On July 3, the Federal Court reserved its judgment to a date to be fixed.
Lina, 42, was born Azlina Jailani to Malay parents. She was brought up as a Muslim but at the age of 26 decided to become a Christian. In 1999, she managed to change the name in her identity card to Lina Joy but her religion remained as Islam.

On April 23, 2001, the High Court refused to decide on her application to renounce Islam as her religion on the grounds that the issue should be decided by the Syariah Court.
It also dismissed her application for an order to direct the department to drop the word “Islam” from her identity card.

Meanwhile, Ahmad Fairuz will be heading to Beijing on Sunday for a week-long working trip to China.

He said the visit, which was at the invitation of the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of China, was part of the judiciary’s objective to study the legal systems of other countries and to foster state relations between the two countries.

When you felt and taste the bitterness of it

You will know the sweetness of victory and success

..the ticking..


It slipped through fingers as water from a stream
As do the song of robins die just merrily
(And hushed snow falling upon an aging tree)
While evening sunlight brushes against our cheek
It laughed with children as echoes usually do
As well as mirrors reflect just little truth
(And glass which shatters only to be cleaned)
While sweeping mothers move to their own beat
It sang another lullabye as quiet as could be
As do the diamond stars whisper with soft light
(And grandfather clocks chime a closing hour)
While time continues passing downy as a feather

My Perfect Friend


You are my best friend,
My very best friend,
You make me happy,
Everyday,
You share your great snacks,
You share your best toys,
So please don't take
My best friend away.

My Best Friend


Today I found a friend,
Who knew everything I felt.
She knew my every weakness,
And the problems I've been dealt.

She understood my wonders,
And listened to my dreams.
She listened to how I felt about life and love,
And knew what it all means.

Not once did she interrupt me,
Or tell me I was wrong.
She understood what I was going through,
And promised she'd stay long

I reached out to this friend
To show her that i care
To pull her close and let her know
How much I need her there

I went to hold her hand
To pull her a bit nearer
And realized that this perfect friend I found
Was nothing but my mirror.
