International Seminar On Good Governance In The Islamic World.

On May 23, 2010 I attended the ‘International Seminar On Good Governance In The Islamic World’.

The seminar was held at the Equatorial Hotel, Bangi.

It was organised by the Selangor State Government, UNIW ( Union Of NGO’s Of The Islamic World) and WADAH.

I snapped a lot of photos at the seminar.

I am very happy to meet YB Dato’ Seri Anwar Ibrahim over there.

I snapped this photo by myself.

This is the first time I meet Dato' Seri Anwar Ibrahim. The Turkish Ambassador was also there.

I'm listening to the speaker at the event.

  1. dear adik ali,sometimes mass media cannot be trusted.But here,all i wanted to say is beware of liars because there are times where they come with good faces and make us believe with their sayings.In terms of picking and choosing the preferred party,select the one that is going to fight for Islam and the one that shows the modesty of life where we should be having as a servant of Allah.It is good for you right now to get to know Allah more and to know Islam more,enrich yourself with the knowledge of Islam as it is so wide.Because we are khalifah and we want to spread the word of da’wah,that is our main task to live in this temporary world.
    After that,I am sure you will be matured enough to pick which party on your preferral as a platform for you to stand and defend for,inshaaAllah.wallahu a’lam bissawab.. 🙂


    1. Dear kakak,
      Yes, the media cannot be trusted 100% like the kangkung issue when some people spread lies that accuses Royal Professor Ungku Aziz wrote a pantun supporting Pakatan’s #kangkung isssue.
      Yes, I am sad when the Muslim PAS and PKR’s Muslim leaders wrongly interpreted Article 3(1) of the Federal Constitution of Malaysia and do not understand the Kalimah Allah and JAIS issues. PAS leaders do not listen to Harun Din and Harun Taib anymore. They do not dare to fight against COMANGO and let DAP tell them what to do.


  2. Dear Adik Ahmad Ali,

    I want to share recently speech from Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad at the 51st Annual General Meeting of PERKIM. Tun Dr Mahathir who is also the President of Pertubuhan Kebajikan Islam Malaysia (PERKIM), said he was disappointed that Islam today to be labeled as a religion of violence by the anti-Islamic.

    According to him, Islam is not violence but had preferred to the unity of the ummah. But unfortunately it has been misinterpreted by certain people to link the events of violence as happened in the Middle Eastern countries today.

    I hope you can watch the whole speech from Tun Dr. Mahathir in order to understand more the concept of Islam moderate as teachings from Al-Sunnah Wal Jamaah.


    1. Dear zulfahasan,
      Thanks for the video. Some Muslims do not understand about Islam. PAS also uses Islam to fight UMNO and caused some of their supporters confused and some became violent. For example, the violence during Bersih 3.0 and Memali. Since they are Muslims, people will think that Muslims are violent. There people who hated Islam will be supporting those Muslims and help them to cause more violence.
      As Muslims, we must make ourselves good, help others become good and make the world clean and beautiful, pleasing to Allah.


  3. Well, I really admire Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad. He is very intelligent leader to succeed in bringing Malaysia to top and he is known in the world as the muslim leader of the third world. I love listening to his speech and never miss the event at my place (Kuala Terengganu) if there’s seminar or ‘ceramah’ by Tun Dr.Mahathir. I don’t care of some people said Tun Dr. Mahathir is a Tyrant, a Dictator or Mahazalim but for me, Tun Dr. Mahathir is very special and the most deserving person to change our standard of living in a modern world.

    You can read his writing by surf to his website blog:


    1. Dear zulfahasan,
      Yes, Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad is a great man. But I used to do not like him when I supported Anwar. I thought he is a bad person as what Anwar said and still says 🙂 Now I know who Anwar really is and who Tun Dr. Mahathir really is. Tun Dr. Mahathir still fights for Islam and the Malays not like PAS leaders who talk about Islam but support the enemies of Islam. And thank you for the link.


  4. Dear Adik Ahmad Ali,

    I’ve read your previous article and I was so surprised to see your photo taken with Anwar Ibrahim. However I’m not surprised if anyone really like Anwar Ibrahim and make him as idol. Anwar Ibrahim has a natural talent as a politician especially when he gives a speech. He has a charisma, working hard and never give-up, but that’s not mean he’s really honest as a leader to the people. If we see more clearly that he has many facets or some people called him as ‘chameleons’.

    I interested to his political involvement since I was in secondary school in era 90’s during the leadership of Tun Dr. Mahathir and Tun Ghaffar Baba. Since then, I’ve seen him take action so aggressively until he won against Tun Ghaffar and take a seat as deputy prime minister in 1993. However there’s a report that Anwar is alleged to have resorted to money politics to win support his position as deputy UMNO. When Anwar was a Financial Minister (as Deputy PM at same time) and incidentally in the last years before being sacked the 1997/98, the country has experienced worst financial economic attack.

    Anwar has taken wrong decision, and just follow of the ‘International Monetory Fund’ or IMF with strict conditions. Loan interest rate is drastically increased business resulted not afford to pay loans and banks are burdened with the ‘Non-Performing-Loan’ (NPL). As a result, the economy almost completely paralyzed when businesses are closed, banks have suffered losses and the unemployment rate increased rapidly. Luckily were saved by the Prime Minister, Tun Dr. Mahathir who boldly took the unpopular step and swallow all the criticism in order to save the countries which are nearly bankrupt.

    He is very dangerous because of his associating with foreigners to undermine the national security. He has deliberately worsened disadvantages Malaysia in the world by saying that our country is not democratic or in other words had rules of dictatorship and autocratic. His close relationship with the western raises many questions about his motive. I can’t tell it here because there are too many scandals, corruption and cronyism involved with him. The theory conspiracy is no longer an issue by deliberately raised to deflect the accusations against him. He also upholds the concept of liberalism and pluralism.

    I honestly cannot accept him as our leader. Tun Dr. Mahathir once said at one time ago that if Anwar Ibrahim became a prime minister, he will run away and live abroad because only god knows what will be done by him to this beloved country. And I also fear the same thing as Tun Dr. Mahathir on what will happen to Malaysia once Pakatan Rakyat won the PRU13? If now Anwar Ibrahim dared to challenge the law, how about when he got power to control of this country?

    Hanya Allah sahaja yang tahu.. Jauhkanlah kami dari pemimpin yang munafik. Nauzubillahi minzalik.


    1. Dear zulfahasan,
      Thank you for the information. I used to really like Anwar Ibrahim since I was 5 years old. I used to like to see him giving speeches even when I do not understand what he said. I wanted to give speeches like him too. And I wanted to be a politician just like him 🙂 I felt as if I was dreaming when I met him 🙂 But then I found out that he supported Liberalism and Pluralism. He supported Bersih 3.0. Bersih 3.0 was lead by an LGBT and Murtad’s Rights fighter. And I was very sad when I saw what he did during Bersih 3.0 riot. He did not care for his supporters, he ran away after giving the signs.
      But, I am still glad that I took photos with him because at that time I really admire him and it was like a dream to meet my favourite politician 🙂
