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.

G25, Another Voice Of Liberal Muslims?

21 08 2015

The Malaysia Insider reported that a “group of retired Malay civil servants of G25 against religious extremism plans to seek an audience with the Malay rulers to petition for a committee that will review the application of Islam in Malaysian law.”
G25 wrote an open letter dated December 7, 2014 (please click here for the open letter) among others expressed that they are disturbed and deeply dismayed “over the continuing unresolved disputes on the position and application of Islamic laws in this country” and stated that “the teachings of our faith must continue to evolve” to be relevant.
They wrote that:

“The on-going debate over these matters display a lack of clarity and understanding on the place of Islam within our constitutional democracy.”

Actually, there should not be any question about the place of Islam within our constitution because it is clearly stated in Article 3(1) of the Federal Constitution of Malaysia that Islam is the religion of the Federation and the oath pledged by the Yang di-Pertuan Agong as in accordance to Article 37(1) is made in the name of Allah, “Wallahi Wabillahi Watallahi” and the Yang di-Pertuan Agong pledges to uphold Islam at all time.

Article 3(1) said that:

“Islam is the religion of the Federation; but other religions may be practised in peace and harmony in any part of the Federation.”

Article 37(1) stated that the Yang Di-Pertuan Agong needs to take his oath before exercising his functions:

“The Yang di-Pertuan Agong shall before exercising his functions take and subscribe before the Conference of Rulers and in the presence of the Chief Justice of the Federal Court (or in his absence the next senior judge of the Federal Court available) the oath of office set out in Part I of the Fourth Schedule; and the oath shall be attested by two persons appointed for the purpose by the Conference of Rulers.”

The oath pledged by the Yang di-Pertuan Agong:

“Wallahi: Wabillahi: Watallahi,

Maka dengan lafaz ini berikrarlah Kami dengan sesungguhnya dan dengan sebenarnya mengaku akan taat setia pada menjalankan dengan adilnya pemerintahan bagi Malaysia dengan mengikut sebagaimana undang-undang dan Perlembagaan yang telah disahkan dan dimasyurkan dan akan disah dan dimasyurkan di masa hadapan ini. Dan lagi Kami berikrar mengaku dengan sesungguh dan dengan sebenarnya memeliharakan pada setiap masa Agama Islam dan berdiri tetap di atas permintaan yang adil dan aman di dalam Negeri.”

G25 also wrote:

“We refer specifically to the current situation where religious bodies seem to be asserting authority beyond their jurisdiction; where issuance of various fatwa violate the Federal Constitution and breach the democratic and consultative process of shura; where the rise of supremacist NGOs accusing dissenting voices of being anti-Islam, anti-monarchy and anti-Malay has made attempts at rational discussion and conflict resolution difficult; and most importantly, where the use of the Sedition Act hangs as a constant threat to silence anyone with a contrary opinion. These developments undermine Malaysia’s commitment to democratic principles and rule of law, breed intlerance and bigotry, and have heightened anxieties over national peace and stability.”

Contrary to the accusation made by G25, the religious bodies are not “asserting authority beyond their jurisdiction, but they are doing their job to uphold Islam as the religion of the Federation as stated under Article 3(1) of the Federal Constitution.

“…the rise of supremacist NGOs accusing dissenting voices of being anti-Islam, anti-monarchy and anti-Malay has made attempts at rational discussion and conflict resolution difficult…” – G25

From the above statement I guess the NGOs that G25 called supremacist are the Malay and Islamic NGOs who are fighting to uphold Islam which is the religion of the Federation as written in Article 3(1) and protecting the rights of the Malays as written in Article 153 of the Federal Constitution.
I just wonder why the Malays of G25 are so disturbed by people fighting for Islam and the rights of the Malays?
And why is G25 quiet when liberal NGOs like COMANGO questioned, humiliated and challenged Islam, the Malays rights and our Rulers?
Does G25 think that it is constitutional when people like Lim Kit Siang, Eric Paulsen and Tony Pua humiliate and slender Islam, the Friday Sermon and JAKIM?
What about some illegal coalition of NGOs such as BERSIH who went against the law by organising illegal street demonstrations, with the hope to topple a democratically elected government?
G25 also attacked Datuk Seri Jamil Khir Baharom for doing his job as the minister in charge of the Islamic affairs:

“…we are particularly concerned with the statement issued by Minister Datuk Seri Jamil Khir Baharom, in response to the recent Court of Appeal judgement on the right of transgendered women to dress according to their identity.”

Calling the Sedition Act as a tool to silence the voices with a contrary opinion shows that one does not understand the Sedition Act.
According to Tan Sri Aziz Abdul Rahman, (please refer to this article) the Sedition Act or Akta Hasutan was written after the government identified four serious issues as one of the major causes of the serious 1969 racial riot:

  • Article 153 of the Federal Constitution: Special Rights For The Malays
  • Article 152 of the Federal Constitution: Malay As The National Language
  • Part III: of the Citizenship Rights                 
  • Article 181 of the Federal Constitution: Rights, Status, Sovereignty Of The Rulers

I just do not understand why G25 members want the four sensitive issues to be questioned when open debates on the four issues could actually “heightened anxieties over national peace and stability.”

The G25 further wrote:

“The Federal Constitution is the supreme law of the land and any law enacted, including Islamic laws, cannot violate the Constitution, in particular the provisions on fundamental liberties, federal-state division of powers and legislative procedures”

How could the Islamic laws violate the Federal Constitution when Islam is the religion of the Federation as stated in Article 3(1) of the the Federal Constitution?
In the ruling of the Court of Appeal’s three-member panel led by Federal Court judge Datuk Seri Mohamed Apandi Ali on the Kalimah Allah case:

[31] It is my observation that the words “in peace and harmony” in Article 3(1) has a historical background and dimension, to the effect that those words are not without significance. The Article places the religion of Islam at par with the other basic structures of the Constitution, as it is the 3 rd in the order of precedence of the Articles that were within the confines of Part I of the Constitution. It is pertinent to note that the fundamental liberties Articles were grouped together subsequently under Part II of the Constitution.

And in the case of Ramah v Laton, it has been decided that the Islamic laws are the laws of the land, so it does not violate the Federal Constitution.

G25 then wrote:

“It is our fervent belief that for Islam to continue to be relevant and universal in our times, the understanding, codification and implementation of the teachings of our faith must continue to evolve.”

We have to follow the real teaching of Islam. We are the Muslims of Ahli Sunnah Wal Jamaah from the Shafie school of thought or madhhab, so this is the guideline followed by our Islamic authorities.
The true teaching of Islam is always relevant, therefore it must never be evolved or liberalised by anybody.





Is Marina Mahathir Scared Of Hudud?

27 05 2015

Mmo

Referring to the article above, I have several questions for Marina Mahathir, who is a daughter of former Prime Minister of Malaysia, Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad.

  1. What kind of Muslim is Marina, to say that she wants to leave Malaysia if hudud is implemented in this country?
    A Muslim should be happier when Islamic law is implemented in his or her country. It will be safer for them because it can turn our country into a more peaceful country. 
  2. “I cannot live in a country where people want to cut off hands, I’m sorry, or stone people to death,” Marina told Malay Mail Online in a recent interview here. What does she understand about Islam and hudud?
    I’m sorry for her because at her age, she still does not understand Islam and the Islamic law; but yet she still want to talk about hudud as if she is an expert on the subject.
  3. Is she scared of hudud? Has she done something wrong that might cause her to be punished under hudud?
    Contrary to what Marina thinks, Islamic law is fair and just. Islam is a peaceful religion.
  4. Marina claims to be a Muslim activist fighting for Muslim rights through an NGO called Sisters in Islam. Why would an ‘Islamic’ activist hate the Islamic law?
    I hope that Marina will understand that it is wrong for a Muslim to belittle the Islamic law.
  5. “She said the Iranian women, who were middle-class elites living in New York, had sounded bitter and were aggressive about keeping religion out of everything, noting that their counterparts had stayed back in Iran and fought from within, when women’s rights were rolled back after Iran became an Islamic state following the 1979 revolution.” Does Marina understand the difference between Syiah and Ahli Sunnah Wal Jamaah?
    Syiah is a deviant teachings which claims to be as a part of Islam. The rules of Syiah is against the rules of Islam. Like other liberals and plurals Marina does not understand Islam. Not only they refer Syiah as a part of Islam, but they are also forcing the Malaysian government to accept the teaching of Syiah as part of Islam; but at the same time they complain about the Syiah law as practiced in Iran.
  6. “It’s natural to me, if I see something wrong, to say something, or to do something,” said Marina. Does she see hudud as “something wrong”?
    If she does, I’m so sorry for her.
  7. “It’s a form of worship. It’s how I act out my life as a Muslim. If you say it’s a way of life, it’s not just about rituals. It’s acted out by trying to do good, to be charitable and to ensure justice,” she added. Is Marina trying to tell others how a Muslim should lives their life?
    A person with no proper knowledge on a subject must not talk as if they are an expert on that subject. Marina who fights for lots of things that is against Islam such as LGBT rights, liberalism and pluralism of religion should not talk about Islam as if she really understands Islam better than others.




YB Nasharudin Will Leave PAS For UMNO?

15 08 2012

Dato’ Seri Najib (third from left) and YB Nasharudin Mat Isa (second from left) during a meeting with Sheikh Dr Abdullah Hamad Jalaly, the Masjidil Haram Mufti Sheikh Dr Sulaiman Al Salumi dan Lord President of the Mecca Court Chief Justice Dr Saleh in Mecca.

The above photo shows Dato’ Seri Najib and YB Nasharudin Mat Isa together in Mecca during a meeting with renowned Saudi Arabian ulama’.

Dato’ Seri Najib is leading the Malaysian delegation to the Organisation Of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) Extraordinary Summit in the holy city of Mecca starting August 14, 2012.

The picture of the opposition party, PAS senior leader joining the Prime Minister for an important meeting overseas stirs all kind of speculations and reactions in Malaysia.

And on August 15, kl Pos reported that the Dewan Pemuda PAS Negeri Kelantan or Kelantan PAS Youth urged YB Nasharudin to resign from his post as the Bachok MP.

As I wrote in my earlier post, I think that PAS does not like Uncle Nasharudin anymore and now he is labelled as pro UMNO.

PAS does not respect Uncle Nasharudin’s opinions on important issues like Bersih 3.0LGBT and the issue of muzakarah with UMNO.

Uncle Nasharudin wants PAS and UMNO to sit together and have a discussion or muzakarah on important matters but PAS’s president and leaders do not want it to happen.

So is this a sign that YB Nasharudin is leaving PAS and will be joining UMNO soon?

Or will YB Nasharudin be sacked from PAS like Dr. Hassan Ali and Ustaz Kazim?

I am glad to see Uncle Nasharudin together with the PM and hope that Uncle Nasha can join Uncle Ustaz Uthman El-Muhammady, Uncle Ismail Mina, Ustaz Kazim, Dr. Hassan Ali, Tuan Guru Abdullah Sa’amah and others to protect Islam Ahli Sunnah Wal Jamaah in Malaysia.

There is nothing much that Uncle Nasha can do in PAS as PAS leaders are too busy demonstrating and only fighting for Putrajaya.
