Segera lapor Jawi – Jika Dr. Amina Wadud jalankan aktiviti tanpa kebenaran

laporjawi-aminawadud(Karim’s Blog) – KUALA LUMPUR 7 Jun – Jabatan Agama Islam Wilayah Persekutuan (Jawi) meminta orang ramai melaporkan sebarang aktiviti keagamaan yang dijalankan tokoh agama Islam liberal dari Amerika Syarikat, Dr. Amina Wadud di sekitar ibu kota.

Pengarah Jawi, Paimuzi Yahya walau bagaimanapun berkata, setakat ini tiada sebarang laporan ber­kenaan perkara itu yang diterima pihak­nya dari orang ramai.

Jelasnya, sekiranya laporan diterima, siasatan akan dijalankan berdasarkan prosedur operasi standard (SOP) yang telah digariskan.

“Kita akan bertindak mengikut laporan di samping memantau sebarang aktiviti keagamaan yang diadakan supaya sentiasa mengikut pegangan Ahli Sunah Wal Jamaah yang kita amalkan.

“Sebarang aktiviti keagamaan yang ingin dianjurkan perlu mendapat kebenaran dan tauliah daripada pejabat mufti, jika tiada, Jawi boleh ambil tindakan orang yang menganjurkannya mengikut undang-undang,” katanya ketika dihubungi Utusan Malaysia di sini hari ini.

Tokoh agama Islam liberal terkenal antarabangsa dari Amerika Syarikat, Dr. Amina Wadud dipercayai berada di ibu negara sejak Jumaat lepas untuk menyambut Ramadan di sini.

Amina merupakan salah seorang pemimpin ajaran liberalisme agama sedunia dan juga merupakan antara pendakwah utama fahaman feminisme melampau yang bertentangan dengan ajaran Islam. Fahaman Islam liberal difatwakan sesat oleh Majlis Fatwa Kebangsaan dan Jabatan Mufti Negeri sejak tahun 2006 lagi.

Sementara itu, Mufti Kelantan, Datuk Mohamad Shukri Mohamad berkata, penyebaran ajaran sesat harus dipantau secara lebih serius kerana masalah itu kini semakin membimbangkan. “Semakin banyak ajaran sesat yang muncul baru-baru ini dan orang ramai yang tidak mempunyai pegangan kuat senang untuk terpengaruh. “Oleh itu, jabatan agama Islam negeri harus sentiasa peka dengan aktiviti keagamaan setempat yang diadakan dan pantau jika ada tokoh ajaran sesat yang masuk ke negeri anda,” katanya.

Sight And Sound, A Poem By Ahmad Ali Karim

The soothing sounds of the waves,
As they lap against the rocks,
Wind whispering through the trees,
I feel calm and free.

The rustling of the leaves,
As grasses dance in the autumn wind,
The sweet fragrance of spring,
I’m as rich as a king.

An Answer To Boo Su Lyn’s, “Why don’t we eat together anymore?”

The Malay Mail Online columnist, Boo Su Lyn wrote an article discussing why she thinks the Malays and Chinese do not eat together anymore.

Interestingly, in the article, she seemed to put all the blame on the Malays, implying their “obsession with “halal” food“, as the main cause of the problem.

This is not the first time Boo Su Lyn makes malicious statements about Islam, the Malays, the Muslims and Islamic authorities.

(Please click here for MMO Did Not Apologise For Boo Su Lyn’s Seditious Article).

In her article, “Why don’t we eat together anymore?”, she wrote:

This unhealthy obsession foments suspicion on Chinese food sellers, even if they’re not selling pork, and discourages Malay-Muslims from dining with other Malaysians at the same table, at the same restaurant, or even at the same section in a food court.

She complained that the Malays do not even want to eat at pork-free Chinese restaurants.

She further accused the Malays of having, “persistent myth that associates the Chinese to pork”, saying:

Why can’t Malays eat at non-pork Chinese restaurants? Not all Chinese dishes contain pork. I don’t understand why there is a persistent myth that associates the Chinese to pork, or why there are irrational fears of so-called pork “particles” contaminating the air. Not only do such concerns sound ridiculous; there’s also an undertone of racism.

I feel really offended by people like Boo Su Lyn, who likes to insult other, calling others racists and behaving as if she understands Islam better than the Muslims.

Having negative perceptions towards the Malays, she wrote that the Malays avoid eating at Chinese restaurants because of racial reasons but says nothing about the Chinese who avoid eating at Malay restaurants.

The night before, my family and I enjoyed a wonderful dinner at a Chinese Muslim halal restaurant in Kota Tinggi, Johor.

The Chinese restaurant serves delicious Chinese food but the people eating there are mostly the Malays, I saw only one Chinese customer waiting for his order to be packed.

My question to Boo Su Lyn is, why must the Chinese avoid eating at the restaurant despite it is a Chinese restaurant?

Is it because the Chineseman who runs the restaurant is a Muslim?

So, by Boo Su Lyn’s logic, it is the non-Muslim Chinese who are actually racists.

The non-Muslim Chinese have no limitation in food affairs so they can eat at halal restaurants, and if non-Muslim Chinese like Boo Su Lyn eats at halal restaurant, everybody will be eating together.

Trying to teach the Malays again, Boo Su Lyn asked, “Why can’t Malays eat at non-pork Chinese restaurants?”

By asking the question, she is telling the Malays that they can eat at non-pork Chinese restaurants or in another word, the non-pork Chinese restaurants are halal restaurants.

Boo Su Lyn should check with JAKIM the criteria of halal food before making silly conclusion about halal food.

And to further insult the Malays, Boo Su Lyn wants the Malays to share a table with a Chinese who is eating “bak kut teh”, knowing that “bak kut teh” is a pork-laden dish where the word ”bak” refers to pork in Chinese.

Why can’t we have Malays eating nasi lemak, the Chinese dining on “bak kut teh and the Indians consuming roti canai at the same table? Do dietary restrictions really mean that one cannot dine with someone else who doesn’t have those restrictions?

If this is her idea of promoting unity, she must be a very inconsiderate and self-centered person for she fails to respect other people’s religion.

Instead of putting the blame on the Malays, why don’t Boo Su Lyn tell the people who have no dietary restrictions to eat at halal restaurants so that everybody can eat together?

As a non-Muslim, Boo Su Lyn has no constitutional rights to talk about Islam and teach the Muslims about what is halal and what is not.

In fact, she has to look at herself first, the fact that she is an atheist means that she is against the National Principles of our country because being an atheist is against the first Rukun Negara, which is, “Kepercayaan Kepada Tuhan” or Belief in God.

She must learn to respect the National Principles and the Federal Constitution of Malaysia before telling Malaysians what they should do.

By making malicious statements regarding Islam and the Malays, it is her who does not respect the national unity and not the other way around.

Bersatulah Bangsaku, A Poem By Ahmad Ali Karim

Bangsaku, bersatulah kita,
Kita satu kaum, satu agama,
Bersatu padu, seia sekata,
Susah senang kita bersama.

Janganlah kita berpecah-belah,
Usahlahlah kita terus bertelingkah,
Berusahalah kita, jangan mengalah,
Agar tidak tersalah langkah.

Akta 355: DAP MPs, Please Do Your Homeworks

Malaysians including the non-Muslims are making all kinds of comments regarding PAS President, Dato’ Seri Haji Hadi’s Private Member’s Bill about the amendments of the Act 355 Syariah Courts (Criminal Jurisdiction) Act 1965 (Revised – 1988) recently.

But the question is, do they understand what is Act 355 and to whom does the Act apply to?

The Act 355 is not a new Act but it is an existing Syariah Courts (Criminal Jurisdiction) Act:

LAWS OF MALAYSIA

ACT 355
SYARIAH COURTS (CRIMINAL JURISDICTION) ACT 1965 (REVISED – 1988)
Incorporating latest amendment – Act A996/1997

In Section 2 of the Act, it is clearly written that the Act 355 only affects “persons professing the religion of Islam”:

Section 2. Criminal Jurisdiction of Syariah Courts.

The Syariah Courts duly constituted under any law in a State and invested with jurisdiction over persons professing the religion of Islam and in respect of any of the matters enumerated in List II of the State List of the Ninth Schedule to the Federal Constitution are hereby conferred jurisdiction in respect of offences against precepts of the religion of Islam by persons professing that religion which may be prescribed under any written law:

Provided that such jurisdiction shall not be exercised in respect of any offence punishable with imprisonment for a term exceeding three years or with any fine exceeding five thousand ringgit or with whipping exceeding six strokes or with any combination thereof.

The Private Member’s Bill  is not about proposing a new Act but it is about amending an existing Syariah Courts (Criminal Jurisdiction) Act, which is to increase the Shariah Courts punishments that are currently limited to imprisonment for a term not exceeding three years or with a fine not exceeding five thousand ringgit or with whipping not exceeding six strokes or with any combination thereof.

So why must DAP Member of Parliaments condemn Haji Hadi for tabling the Private Member’s Bill when the Bill only affect the Muslims, and what rights do they have to interfere into the internal matters of the Religion of the Federation when 100% of the DAP MPs are non-Muslims?

Have they forgotten the Article 11(3)?

And looking for reasons to support their allegations, they claim that the Private Member’s Bill is against the Federal Constitution of Malaysia for the reasons that it is about applying the Hudud Laws when the fact is, the Act 355 is already part of the laws of Malaysia.

It makes more sense for the Muslim Malay Members of Parliament of PKR and PAN to make havocs out of this issue since it will affect them but it makes me wonder why are they so against of the amendments of the Act 355 that will empower the Shariah Courts?

What are they scared of or why are they unhappy about this issue when Muslims must be happy and thankful of the empowerment of the Shariah Courts?

Please stop spinning stories, this is about the constitutional rights of the Muslims, so please stop politicising this issue.
