I am very honoured to be able to meet the Menteri Besar of Negeri Sembilan, Dato’ Seri Utama Haji Mohamad Hasan during a program at the Wisma UMNO Negeri Sembilan in Seremban recently.
As the Menteri Besar of Negeri Sembilan, Dato’ Seri Utama is also the chairman of the Majlis Agama Islam Negeri Sembilan.
Malaysia is an Islamic country of Ahli Sunnah Wal Jamaah from the Shafie school of thought or madhhab and Menteri Besars who are the chairmen of their respective state’s Majlis Agama Islam (the Islamic authority) are tasked to assist the Sultan in protecting the sanctity of Islam in their states.
In order to do so, they must have a very good understanding of the subject of Ahli Sunnah Wal Jamaah which is sadly being ignored by some leaders.
And for this reason, I’m really impressed with Dato’ Seri Utama Mohamad’s understanding of Islam, and the brave actions that he took to protect the sanctity of Islam in Negeri Sembilan, even though those actions were considered as unpopular by certain people, for example having a strict guideline to monitor the teaching of Islam in the state, the transgender case and others.
Dato’ Seri Utama gives a clear message that Islam, as the religion of the state and the country, must be respected by everybody and is above other religions in Malaysia.
I hope that the people of Negeri Sembilan can understand how lucky they are to have a great Muslim leader.
Thanks for flying with us. Keep up the good blogging!

This was what I first wrote after my father gave his permission to start my own blog:
Welcome To My Blog
Hello, my name is Ahmad Ali Karim.
Welcome to my blog.
I love to write and I started to write stories when I was 3 years old.
Now I am 5 years old and I am very happy to start my own blog.
🙂 🙂 🙂
I was very excited to receive this note from WordPress.com yesterday! I started this blog when I was five years old, five years ago and over the years I learn lots of things about writing, reporting and blogging.
One of my worst experience in blogging is when I cannot open my blog after it was hacked for a month.
I was so sad and scared and fear that I’ll loose my blog.
But thanks to the wonderful people at WordPress.com, at last my problem is solved.
And thank you very for my wonderful cyber friends who had sent me messages and tried to help me solve the problem.
Thank you for visiting my blog and my very special thanks to all my loyal readers who had become my special friends.
Then the eclipse path moves southeast across the Gulf of Carpentaria to Queensland, darkening the skies over towns such as Mitchell River and Palmerville before reaching the coastal city of Cairns at 3:39 p.m. EST (2039 GMT).
Shortly after sunrise, skywatchers in Cairns will witness a total solar eclipse lasting two minutes.
From Cairns, the moon’s shadow will cruise out into the vast Pacific Ocean, with the total eclipsefinally petering out 610 miles (980 kilometers) west-northwest of Santiago, Chile, at 6:48 p.m. EST (2348 GMT).
The eclipse’s path of totality is about 108 miles (174 km) wide and covers 9,000 miles (14,500 km) over a three-hour period.
The next total solar eclipse occurs in March 2015 and will be visible from some areas in the North Atlantic region, such as Norway’s Svalbard Islands.
However, a so-called “hybrid” eclipse — which shifts between total and annular at different points on the globe — will come to parts of the Atlantic and central Africa in November 2013.
