melayu dan islam

/المومنتترون والمسلمون)Cara Menyelesai MELAYU Merempat di Bumi Sendiri.

Jln penyelesaian menyeluruh yg hakiki dan muktamad ialah bila semua lelaki Melayu Islam mula memenuhi masjid 5 waktu setiap hari dan selama-lamanya. Setiap waktu jemaah mesti sama bilangan seperti solat Jumaat.

🔹Masaalah dtg dr ALLAH dan hanya ALLAH yg boleh menyelesaikannya.

🔷Bukti di zmn kini:
🔹Sri Lanka org Islam adalah minoriti tetapi mereka menguasai ekonomi.
🔹Lihat di masjid mereka, setiap waktu kehadhiran seperti jemaah solat Juma'at.
🔹Di Turki, perubahan mula terjadi bila solat subuh jama'ah melimpah spt solat Juma'at.
🔹Dulu org Turki tak amal agama, kdr inflasi tahunan melebihi 30% dan ramai jadi buruh sapu jln di Germany.
🔹Kini mereka mula menikmati perubahan ekonomi mendadak dan tidak lagi merayu utk berada dlm Komuniti Kesatuan Eropah.

🔹Melayu akan dimuliakan oleh ALLAH tidak hina seperti sekarang di negara sendiri sekiranya beramai-ramai mengamalkan agama yg sempurna dan ia mesti bermula dgn Solat Berjema'ah di Masjid.
(KHUSUSNYA KAUM LELAKI KITA(المومنون والمسلمون )

🔶🔸👉Sebarkan msg ini spya ramai dpt menafa'at dr agama yg telah sempurna. Yg tak sempurna ialah pengikutnya yg engkar dgn perintah ALLAH swt.🔸🔶


so today I received this message. this kind of message though i dont deny the goodness but sometimes i wonder what if people that are holding the economic power of this country are muslim people but different race like chinese or indian muslim mostly. will the malays be satisfied or they will still look at them as outsiders. what if the malays are the one being powerful in this country but most of them are not muslim. wonder if they will still say about being mengemis di tanah sendiri and need to do the prayers to unite the race? me? i never really care about race because of my condition.

race and religion can never be mixed together. it's like oil and water. religions go beyond races and races can have different religions. you cant make a race only have one religion and you cant make a religion only cater for a race. what im saying is that using religion for race agenda is never a good way. it gives the wrong impression to outsiders and also give the wrong mindset to the people inside making them think being in the religion is becoming part of the race, that is a never winning fight. it just creates tensions between people in the race, between races, and even with different religions.

see when we talk about race and religion lets simplify to muslim, non muslim, malay, and non malay. see when you fight for A you make a friction with all other factions B, C, and D and the friction is so great between A and D that group B and D becomes minority. they're either forced to be in either A or D. some ended up living a double life, few remain in the group at the cost of having constant arguments and conflicts, and most ended giving up and joining A or D. it is not surprising when you have constant pressure from both sides especially if your family members are both in A and D. To me if you support A while abandoning or forcing B and C to join A is just ridiculous. race can never be changed. once a malay will always be a malay and that goes for indian and chinese. religion in the meantime can never be forced on one and you cannot force someone to be a muslim if they dont wan tto regardless of what reason they have and you cant force someone to go out of the religion if they want to. religion is a thing between the person themselves and god. you can force one to say and act like a muslim but in the inside one can remain a buddhist, hindus, christian, or even atheist.

so yeah if you want to support religion you have to accept the religion regardless of race and respect the different cultures and if you want to support race you have to accept the different religions that exist within the race and respect each religions. living in a multiraces and multireligions is not an easy thing. and surely the diagram would not be as simple as this one. one can never only accept part of the religion nor only accept part of races. it is like taking the religion halfly and abandoning the other part of religion. religion doesnt teach us to be racist and races.. well a race is just a race. one can be anything but will always be the same race.

I have family members on both A and D groups. I have friends that went from A to C and I have friends and family members in B. some joins D and some acts like A and then there are bunches of people like me a muslim but a mix of races. on paper we're all one race but we cannot just abandon one side of the family just because theyre from different race or religion. i would say im between A and B and i can see enough friction from both sides and then there are people stuck between A and D which have it way worse.

not accepting differences only make things worse and we can never live and work peacefully in a nation. it is okay to support only a part of groups but you should never ignore the others or try to bring down other groups. trying to bring the group up while making the other groups bad will only backfire on you.

advise and be advised

By time,
Indeed mankind is in loss,
Except for those who believed and done righteous deeds and advised each other to patience.

I believe that we need to help each other in order to improve ourselves. yes we advice each other to remind ourselves what is right and what is wrong. what can be better and what to avoid. nevertheless, giving advice, reminding people, correcting others is not that simple. people have ego and most of the time ego prevent them from accepting advice or criticism especially from someone lower than the person in terms of age, rank, wealth, or status. in addition, the critics can come in different style be it advise, scold, berate, sarcasm, or even insult. some will be too soft that people will just ignore and some will be too harsh that people run away from. a lot of factors play its role during this process leading to either good or bad outcome.

People killing, people dying
children hut and you hear them crying
can you practice what you preach?
or would you turn the other cheek?

another thing about preaching is that would you rather stay silent and let things happen as it be or would you preach to improve things around you? and when you preach can you practice what you preach because people don't listen to someone that only know how to talk but not practicing it. a lot of people choose to stay silent because it is easier to do that and as long as they are safe and not involved. choosing to criticize or preaching means that you have to show others that you are good and and you will have to face the risk of people retaliating. the part of retaliation is always unpleasant and sometimes it turns out to be you are the one getting criticized back.

even so, i still believe that it is the right thing to do to advise people so that they can be a better person instead of watching them as they are and later they ask why didnt you help others get better? you get blamed for not taking care of people around you (this is very true especially in family where you have responsibility to each other). I always feel like I give advices too much and I'm some sort of annoyance to other people whenever i preach or criticize and in the end people will turn to dislike me but sometimes I just cant bear to watch silently. you may feel like I'm a busy body and it is none of my business but I see a potential to live a better life.

im a gardener

first time potong rumput pakai mesin tu. blemblemblemblemblem macam pakai chainsaw la tapi ngadap tanah je. uhhh lenguh bahu dok mikul mesin tu and tangan bergetar je all the time. anyway it was good since i get to clear all the tall grasses and clear my house area. funny thing is the pakcik neighbour upon hearing me potong rumput he stands close watching me potong rumput while pretending he is filling the pail with water from the tap. he works part time cutting grass if im not mistaken and i think that's why hes watching me. oh well whatever, we already have the machine and manpower so no point in hiring someone else to do the job. with him standing around, I pretend to be confident and try to cut the grass like a pro. needless to say i managed to cut the grass with different height and some of them become gondol like kene tobek. haha i feel like working as a barber but on a larger scale. you know, doing hair do for mother earth. also chopped some trees with my little axe.

speaking of chopping woods, i've been playing around with my little axe in the backyard chopping trees and woods. i tell you man, chopping wood is not an easy job man. you need to work your muscles in order to do it right. my first few attempts resulted in the axe bouncing off the wood like im hitting a rock. it sounded ting instead of chop when i hit the axe. even then, only few strokes and im already tired and i only get to chip off little bit of the wood. the next day i woke up with sore muscles and calluses all over my palm. anyway, i am getting better at chopping woods now. get to do the job faster and more efficient. doing this kind of things really makes me respect all the hard labour workers. not all people can do this kind of job. all the pain and sweat but on the good side is that most of them have good body. lol 

of course, i'd have to be a lumberjack if i want this kind of body by just cutting woods haha
  
anyway, im getting darker working under the sun.... parts of me. its gonna be so weird. meh

listening back to some old songs

awak pendek takpe

im not a tall person but never felt like im a dwarf unless when i go oversea. that is when i feel like i have to look up to have a conversation with people even with girls but in malaysia, meh.

so today is hari raya aidiladha and i went to pray in a different mosque since my usual mosque started the praying session earlier than i expected. I thought the praying time will be like during hari raya aidilfitri so when i went to the mosque people are already praying. so off we go to the other mosque.

here i was sitting in the mosque doing the takbir and then come the time to do the prayer and everybody get as close as possible and move forward as long as there is enough space. i happen to see this space like 1 jengkal and the pakcik standing there wont move into close the gap and there are more room next to him to the wall. he's basically like a double parking car right now. so i move in to fill the gap and to my disbelief the pakcik wont move to the wall and insisted to stand where he is. i gave a look at him twice and he didnt even move. i was like come on pakcik you dont want to close the gap now you dont want to make room for other people? of course this happen in my mind only

then the pakcik said to me pakcik tak nak ke tepi takut terhantuk kat rak ni. there's a shelves on the wall in front of the space but it's not too close to prevent people from praying at that spot except for tall people. so i replied to him "haaa pakcik masuk sini" prompting him to take my space and i go to the space at the wall. the perks of being short is that you can always have a praying space in the corner area which i have been utilizing since i was small. in ireland everytime i go to friday prayer i never worry for praying spot because i know that 1 spot will always be available for me no matter how late i am because the room for sujud is shorter compared to other spaces which is why most people ignore that area. that spot has become like my vip space. plus it comes with an extra space to put my belongings and close enough to the khatib.

now back to main story, everything is fine when we switch places to me even with the shelves, i still have ample space to rukuk and sujud without banging my head against it. but then the pakcik went on and said "awak xpe awak pendek" after we switched place. i was like "really pakcik?! really?!" also in my head since we are going to start praying. i cant focus on starting to pray when he said that. i was startled not because he said that i'm short but because he said that when he is actually shorter than me. haih... pakcik pakcik.

anyway selamat hari raya aidiladha.

the bait and the predator

it's a common thing for men to look at women especially the beautiful, gorgeous, bodylicious, bootylicious, boobylicious etc whatever depends on people's fetish. some will look and avert their gaze, some will look  and continue to peek a bit, some will stare at the women, some even fantasize about them, some will make a move to flirt, get one night stand maybe, and some go to the extreme of raping them. the point is it happens.

so who's to blame? the ladies or the guys? the victims or the offenders? the baits or the predators? what wait. it's supposed to be prey not bait but that's what people are claiming as the girls are baiting men to make move on them.

when men rape women, the rapist is always guilty since he is the offender, the one making move, the one doing the harm. so the rapist should always be punished according to the law. the issue comes when the ladies are accused to be at fault too for being raped/harassed like you reap what you sow. see, in some part of the world the man can get away from punishment of raping as the lady is the one at fault. it can be due to the sexiness, behaviour, timing, or just because they're women. yes in extreme areas people always blame the victim regardless of what reason. it is unfair in this extreme cases but what about the women that wears exposing outfit and act like they're inviting the guys? is the girl at fault?  

nowadays, people say that it is in one's right to wear whatever they want and be proud of what they're doing. it is men that need to educate themselves to control their behaviour and moral. no matter what one wears or how revealing one wears, it is one's body and one can do whatever one wants with their body but not other people. so, is it unfair for the men to look at whats being shown to them? they're just appreciating the women's beauty and everybody have lust. some will look in perverted way and some even make a move on the girl because they're inviting like they're asking for it, why cant just men give it to them? when you dress like a hooker or a slut, isn't it normal for man interested in sex to come to you? don't they wear all the revealing clothes to show their assets to people around them to attract people? so don't blame other people when they're attracted to you when you in the first place make the efforts to attract people. isn't it like that? it is just like fishing. you put bait and the fishes that like the bait will come and eat the bait.you cant blame the fish for eating the bait because it is in their nature to be attracted to the bait. isn't it supposed to be like that? 

well to me, both sides can be right but not to the extreme for both of them. See in case of rape the rapists will always be guilty regardless of what reason and need to be punished. the punishment is not to marry the victim, that's just like getting a reward for raping a woman. but for the woman side, is it okay for them to wear whatever they want and will never be at fault? see im not saying the woman is guilty because the offender is always the guilty one but are they at fault? that's why religion always teach woman to wear modestly and cover your body. behave properly and not like a slut. 

the problem with this teaching is that people always bring them to the extreme or twist it which makes wrong things to be right and so some people will definitely reject this teaching completely. in the end, one side will use this teaching to accuse that the girl is at fault and the man is not wrong and the other side will say this teaching is oppressive to women. i believe the teaching is not oppressive at all as it is about prevention. we all know prevention is better than cure and i'm very sure no religion condone to the act like sexual harassment or raping. what do we do in order to avoid sexual harassment? we educate people on morality, to control our behaviour but is it fair to only stress on men while women is allowed to do everything they want since they're the victim? absolutely no. some will say that if men don't rape or harass everything will be solved. yes, we wont be having any problem at all if men don't do this kind of bad things but it is not so simple like that. our world does not consist of only 1 and 0. we have spectrum of everything. the good, the bad, and the ugly. there will never be totally good people in this world and there will never be totally bad people in this world. accept it and move on. so yeah, solving social issues always require both parties to cooperate and make efforts in avoiding and reducing the problem to the minimum but we can never reduce it to zero. there will always be bad people in this world.

for man, their job is to stop the problem. you always have to control your behaviour and lust. avert your gaze, resist the temptations and seductions. you can never expect woman to wear modestly and behave properly all the time. people always varies. there will be women that will wear seductively and behave like they're inviting you but always control your behaviour. it is the men's responsibility to not do these bad things and you will always be the guilty one in this issue. regardless of what reason, being the offender will always land you to be guilty and you cant argue with this. so you see men have a really heavy responsibility in tackling these issues.

for woman, their job is to avoid the problem.even though the teachings for men exist to stop all these issues but again, people always varies and there will always be spectrum of good and bad people. you can never expect people to always be good. so women's job is just to avoid the problem as best as they can. wear modestly so as not to attract people around you. if you want to show off your body show off only to people that deserve it be it your partner or husband. behave appropriately as not to attract bad people to you. 

see i believe that men has a bigger responsibility as they're the one that is needed to stop the problem. on the other hand, women only need to avoid the problem and bears no responsibility in stopping the problem but it comes with a cost of being the victim. women's responsibility is only to avoid and not to be the cause of the problem. well not to say the cause but more like the factors that supports the problems. Again, there will always be spectrum of people in this world and not all people will be good, so any arguments that says women do not have to avoid if men can stop the problem is invalid. 

To me, when religion teaches women to wear modestly it is not oppression to the women, it is the teaching for the women counterpart in order to avoid and reduce these problems. the oppression part is when people only emphasize on women side leaving the men side and vice versa. so you see, both extreme of the sides are not being fair to the opposite gender in order to handle these issues. 

in conclusion, raping, sexual harrassment, or being pervert will always be guilty, but in order to reduce the problem, both parties have to take measures to stop and avoid the problem and not to be the pillars that supports the problem. social issues is never a one party job. they always requires teamwork from all parties to handle these issues.

Do not go gentle into that good night


Do not go gentle into that good night by Dylan Thomas

Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Though wise men at their end know dark is right,
Because their words had forked no lightning they
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright
Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Wild men who caught and sang the sun in flight,
And learn, too late, they grieved it on its way,
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Grave men, near death, who see with blinding sight
Blind eyes could blaze like meteors and be gay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

And you, my father, there on the sad height,
Curse, bless, me now with your fierce tears, I pray.
Do not go gentle into that good night.
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.


I was watching Interstellar again and then there was this scene when they were leaving earth and Dr. Brand read this poem to the astronauts. It is a good poem. fight till your last breath and never go gentle into that good night. rage, rage against the dying of the light.
