FMT: Laws Against Quran And Sunnah Are Void, Said Tun Fairuz

I am very proud to read what was said by Tun Ahmad Fairuz in Free Malaysia Today’s report, “Ex-CJ: Laws that are against Quran and Sunnah are void”.

FMT wrote, “Explaining his interpretation, Ahmad Fairuz who was the chief justice from 2003 to 2007, cited a Privy Council judgement on a case in Singapore, where it said for a law to be valid, it must conform to the fundamental rules laid down by English Common Law.”

“This view seems to be accepted in Malaysia too. But as Islam is the religion of the federation, surely the fundamental principles of the law should be based not only on English Common Law, but (also) on the shariah law.

“I want to stress the aspect of judiciary in the definition of Islam where the Quran and Sunnah are the main sources of Islamic laws.

“Article 4 of the Federal Constitution states that laws which are against the Federal Constitution are void, on the part of the contradicting provisions. And hence, laws that are against the Quran and Sunnah will also be void.”

Explaining about the interpretation of Article 3(1) Tun Fairuz was reported saying:

“In the case of Lina Joy, when I was the chief justice, I said Islam was also a complete way of life that included all aspects of human activities, including judiciary, politics, and economy among others.”

FMT further wrote, “Hence, Ahmad Fairuz, reading Article 3 and 4 together, interpreted the Federal Constitution as making Islamic law the second most supreme legislation.”

Therefore for those who are constitutionally illiterate and shouting that Malaysia is a secular country and the proposed amendment of Act 355 is unconstitutional, please attend Tun Fairuz’s next lecture to learn more about the Federal Constitution from our former Chief Justice.

 

 

PAS’s Khalid Samad On Allah Issue

Above is the conversation between Sir ZAPA and Khalid Samad who is a PAS Member of Parliament on twitter.

May be that is why there was no PAS’s flags nor PAS’s leaders at the court yesterday.

Islam is the religion of Malaysia and the government must protect the religion.

Even if there is no word in neither the Quran nor the Hadith about the matter, that does not mean it is okay if it can cause problems to the Muslims later as what is happening in Indonesia.

For example, I jogged for an hour and I’m hot and thirsty.

After that I saw a glass full of sweet, red, cold, rose flavoured syrup with lots of ice.

I could drink it but I know that I am allergic to red artificial colouring.

So, should I just drink it even though I know that it is bad for me and could make me sick just because there is no word in neither he Quran nor the Hadith saying that a Muslim should not drink syrup?

That is just about food but this is a much more serious matter and it is sad when PAS’s leaders who always claim that they are very Islamic can become more and more liberal.

Malaysians Say No To Irshad Manji’s Program

(On May 23, 2012, the BFM 89.9 radio had cancelled airing Irshad Manji’s recorded interview-please click here for the news.)

Tomorrow Irshad Manji was supposed to give a talk at Monash University, Sunway Campus in Selangor entitled, Moral Courage: Creating Space: for Islam and Democracy from 1.00 to 2.00pm which is during the Friday Prayer.

Someone tweeted her:

  Hi, selamat datang 🙂 Is this event catered to Muslim women only? Not gonna include Muslim men? Friday prayer is at about 1-2pm

She tweeted back:

  All r welcome, sis. Quran does not prescribe how/when 2 pray. This is man-made, not God-given, ritual. Salaam from KL

They choose the specific time for the program so that the Muslim men cannot hold a protest and to disgrace Islam because she claimed that, “Quran does not prescribe how/when 2 pray.”

But the program had been cancelled because of the ‘pressure by Selangor Islamic Religious Department (JAIS)’.  

Borders Books also cancelled her program because of the security concerns.

Her publisher, ZI Publication is trying to find a public space in which Manji can discuss her book, Allah, Liberty & Love.

Do Irshad Manji and her publisher  really think that Malaysian Muslims really want to listen to her?

Malaysia is a Muslim country and the majority of the Muslims here are good Muslims who do not want to hear anything about her books because the books disgrace Islam.

So, only very few people welcome her here, those who are liberal like she is.

Rather than trying to reform Islam, she should make a change and learn be a good Muslim.

She is the one who should learn about Islam and not the one to teach other people the false Islam.

Solat Tarawih

Now is Ramadan; the Muslim’s holy month.

During Ramadan we fast, perform the solat Tarawih and read the Quran.

We perform the solat Tarawih only in Ramadan.

When we do the solat Tarawih, we will get lots of extra rewards from Allah.

But first we need to pray our daily solats:

  1. Subuh 2 raka’ats

  2. Zohor 4 raka’ats

  3. Asar 4 raka’ats

  4. Maghrib 3 raka’ats

  5. Isyak 4 raka’ats

I think it’s easier to mark the raka’ats on a piece of paper in case we forget how many raka’ats we had prayed.

When I  perform the solat Tarawih, I pray 20 raka’ats.

That means I pray ten times because each of the prayer has 2 raka’ats.

People usually pray the solat Tarawih 8 raka’ats or 20 raka’ats.

After the solat Tarawih, I first do the solat Witir 2 raka’ats.

After that I solat Witir 1 raka’at.

The total raka’ats in solat Tarawih is in even numbers but the raka’ats of solat Witir must be in odd numbers.

Reciting Yaasin at WACANA Pluralisme Agama

On Saturday, I went to WACANA Pluralisme Agama at the UIAM, Gombak.

UIAM means Universiti Islam Antarabangsa Malaysia.

Wacana means discourse.

The program started at 9:00 in the morning until lunch.

I started the program by reciting  the Surah Yaasin verse 1-20.


This was my second time to recite the Surah Yaasin at a program.

The first time was during the MUAFAKAT 5th AGM.

The speakers for this discourse were:

Dr. Anis Malik Thoha

Ustaz (Dr.) Muhammad Uthman El-Muhammady (ISTAC)

Dr. Mohd Farid Mohd Shahran

Dr. Syamsuddin Arif (UIAM)

There were so many people attended this program.

And there were no empty chairs!


I met Uncle Emeritus Professor Datuk Osman Bakar, Pak Cik Amin, Pak Cik Burhan, Uncle Datuk Rameli Musa, Pak Cik Iskandar, Pak Cik Rashidi, Pak Cik Ustaz Ismail Mina Ahmad, Mak Cik Ram, Kak Maryam  and  a lot others 😉

For lunch, we ate delicious beriani rice with mutton, chicken, fish, salad and vegetable curry.

I like mutton the best.

Pak Cik Amin always order delicious mutton ❗

I think there are going to be more seminars and programs where I can recite the Quran.


Reciting Yaasin at MUAFAKAT 5th AGM

Yesterday morning I went to IIUM or UIAM in Gombak.

IIUM means International Islamic University of Malaysia.

UIAM  means Universiti Islam Antarabangsa Malaysia.

I went there for the MUAFAKAT 5th AGM.

AGM means Annual General Meeting.

I recite Surah Yaasin verse 1 to 10 at the start of the program.


The Surah Yaasin is the 36th surah from the Quran.


In the morning there was a seminar about ‘Umat Islam Sebagai Tulang Belakang Pembangunan Dan Kekuatan Negara Malaysia’.

I ate ‘beriani rice’ and mutton that Pak Cik Amin ordered for lunch.

The mutton was very,very delicious.

The AGM started after lunch.

Over there I met Uncle Emeritus Professor Datuk Osman Bakar, Pak Cik Amin, Ami Ma, Pak Cik Burhan, Uncle Datuk Rameli Musa, Pak Cik Iskandar, Pak Cik Rashidi, Pak Cik Ustaz Ismail Mina Ahmad and Uncle Dr. Aslam.

There are a lot of other ‘uncles’ but I can’t remember their names.

I feel very happy because I can recite the Surah Yaasin to everybody who were there.


Solat Tarawih

Now is Ramadan, during Ramadan we fast, solat tarawih and read the Quran.

We do the solat Tarawih at night after solat Isya’.

After solat Tarawih, I do the solat Witr.

People normally do the solat Tarawih 8 or 20 raka’at.

I usually solat Tarawih 20 raka’at and solat Witr 3 raka’at.

I solat with my father.

So all together I solat 23 raka’at.

Last year I followed my father to the mosque or masjid for solat tarawih.

But this year we solat at home because of the Influenza A (HINI).

After solat I eat fruits, dessert or cookies before I drink my milk and sleep.
