One of my readers e mailed to me this article which I would like to share with you guys and gals.
CHRISTIANIIt is the wishes of all the priests who attended the meeting in Penang which was reportedly organized by DAP to see that one day Christianity will be the official religion of Malaysia and the Prime Minister of Malaysia will also be a Christian. It was made the headline news in Utusan Malaysia and certainly the news was a very provoking one to the Muslims in Malaysia. I do not know the sentiments of the Muslims who belong to the political party of PAS CLICK and the world Tarikat group of Jamat Tabligh CLICK toward the statement. I think generally many Muslims in Malaysia are not happy with the statement. In order for Christianity to become the official religion of Malaysia and a Christian as the Prime Minister of Malaysia, the majority of the Malaysians needs to be Christians. In order for the majority of the Malaysians to become Christians, the Christians particularly their priests must double their efforts to preach Christianity to the Malaysians particularly to the Chinese, the Indians and the Malays. It could be more difficult to convert the Malays to Christianity but it is probably much less difficult to convert the Chinese and the Indians to Christianity. When most of the Chinese and the Indians have become Christians and most of the indigenous people of Sabah and Sarawak have also become Christians, the majority of Malaysians at that time would be Christians. When the majority of Malaysians are Christians, then in a country that practice democracy, the Prime Minister could be a Christian and Christianity could become the official religion of Malaysia. It is not something that is impossible to achieve. As long as the Christians and their priests keep working harder in converting the Malaysians particularly the Chinese and the Indians to Christianity, this dream may become a reality. The conference of all Malaysian Christian priests held in Penang was to stimulate the directions and the goals that all the priests in Malaysia must undertake in the years to come. The conference was aimed to set up the goals that all the Christians in Malaysia must strive hard to achieve. In other words Christians in Malaysia has awaken from their dormant state and have started to become more vigorous in achieving their goal of making Christianity as the official religion of Malaysia and a Christian as the Prime Minister of Malaysia.
TY THE OFFICIAL RELIGION OF MALAYSIA- JAWAPANNYA
The conference of all the Christian priests in Penang was aimed at setting the goals for all the priests and the Christians in Malaysia to achieve in the years to come. There is nothing wrong in setting up goals. The Christians as well as all other religions are free to set their goals. When the Muslims are the majority in Malaysia, Islam will be the official religion of Malaysia and the Prime Minister will be a Muslim. Currently, Islam is the official religion of Malaysia and the head of Islamic religion in each state is either the Sultan or the Governor of the respective state. When Christianity becomes the official religion of Malaysia and the Prime Minister of Malaysia is a Christian, all the Sultans or the Malay Kings will become irrelevant and have to step down as Sultan or King and eventually will become a commoner. In other words, the powers whereby the Malay Sultans or the Kings are vested with are by the virtue of the fact that majority of the Malaysians are Muslims. When the majority of the Malaysians are no longer Muslims, the Sultans or the Malay Kings will lose their power. When not only the Chinese and the Indians become Christians but also many of the Malays, then definitely majority of the Malaysians will be Christians; then it would not only be the Prime Minister a Christian but also the Cabinet Ministers and the Menteri Besar. What would the Muslim Malays become? Definitely at that time they will become the minority group and probably the grand and beautiful mosques that was built would be converted to churches and cathedrals.
Now, I am asking all the Malays in Malaysia, Can this thing happen in Malaysia? Definitely it can happen when all the Christians and their priests become united and work very hard in preaching Christianity to the Chinese, the Indians, the Malays and to the indigenous groups of Malaysia. Christianity can easily become the official religion in Sabah and Sarawak and in some states in the Peninsular Malaysia such as Penang, Malacca and Selangor. When the Christians and their Priests work hard in preaching Christianity to the Malaysians while the Muslims and their Ustaz are not working at all in preaching Islam to the non Muslims, we can imagine what will happen in Malaysia in the next decades whereby Malaysia become a Christian country. Our Ustaz or religious scholars are not willing to preach Islam to the non-Muslims. Our Ustaz are only busy preaching and teaching the Muslims in the mosques to become better Muslims. Unfortunately, most of the Muslims who attended the lectures given by the Ustaz or the religious scholars in the mosques or surau are mainly the old retired Muslims, who have nothing else to do except going to the mosques for prayers. On the other hand, members of Tabligh Jamat are just busy inviting the Muslims for khuruj with them for the Muslims to be rectified and they are not willing to do dakwah or the work of inviting the non-Muslims to become Muslims because they are obeying the tertib or usul given by their Elders in Nizammuddin, India that is the Muslims are not yet capable of doing dakwah to the non-Muslims and they believe and accepted it as the hikmah of their Elders not to do dakwah to the non-Muslims! The Elders of Tabligh Jamat have stopped me from giving lectures to the members of Tabligh Jamat in Malaysia and have relinquished my authority to make decision as the Syura of Tabligh Jamat in Malaysia in their efforts to stop the dakwah to the non-Muslims in Malaysia and the whole World. Tabligh Jamat claims it allows its members to do dakwah to the non-Muslims individually but its members are not allowed to promote or to encourage the work of dakwah on the non-Muslims.
When our Ustaz or religious scholars give lectures or teach the Muslims at the Mosques, they will be paid by the mosques committee, but when they preach the non-Muslims to become Muslims, they may not be paid by the government or by anyone but instead, they may have to give money to the non-Muslims. Many of our Ustaz are not willing to do the dakwah to the non-Muslims as they also have families to take care and they also want to live as others live. Our Ustaz also want to own big cars and live in big houses just like other people. Some of our Ustaz or religious scholars enter politics and become a parliament member or involve actively in direct selling business or become spiritual healers. None of our Ustaz is willing to do the work of dakwah to non-Muslims as it does not generate any income to them. Our government has not created the post of Islamic Mubaligh with the purpose of preaching, reminding and teaching Islam to the non-Muslims and not just to the Orang Asli although our existence as Muslims and the existence of our Sultans depend on the dakwah to the non-Muslims. Without Muslims being the majority in Malaysia, the Muslims will lose the power to govern, our Prime Minister will be a non-Muslim and our Sultans will lose their positions.
While Christian priest are being paid by the World Christian organizations to do the work of preaching Christianity to the whole world, our government is only interested to convert Orang Asli to become Muslims but not the Chinese and the Indians. When someone becomes a Christian, both the priest and the newly converted Christian will be rewarded with material gains. Instead of becoming Muslims many Chinese and Indians in Malaysia becomes Christians or converted to other religion. The Chinese and the Indians in Malaysia become Christians because since independence, the Christian missionaries have been working hard to convert them and other indigenous people to become while the Muslims are only focusing on rectifying the Muslims. No work was done either by the government, the Ustaz or the common Muslims in Malaysia to preach Islam in a systematic way to all the non-Muslims, and not just to the Orang Asli. Our government has failed to encourage, to promote and to develop the work of dakwah to the non-Muslims in Malaysia although our First Prime Minister, the late Tunku Abdul Rahman was known to be very interested in the work of dakwah to the non-Muslims in Malaysia. By the grace of Allah, the late Tunku had established PERKIM and by virtue of PERKIM, to a certain extent Malaysian Government has done some work of dakwah to the Chinese and Indians in Malaysia. However in my opinion, the work of dakwah to the non-Muslims in Malaysia must be increased to a level that it becomes the main agenda of the nation. Our very survival as a Muslim nation and the survival of our Sultans as the Guardians of Islam depend on the dakwah to the non-Muslims. I have written in this blog on how to do the work of inviting the non-Muslims to recite the Great Kalimah and on how to remind the Muslims to do the work of Dakwah to the non-Muslims and to perform the five times solat with congregation. We do not need to become members of any organization to do the work of dakwah to the non-Muslims and the work of reminding the Muslims to do the work of dakwah, similarly as we do not need to become a member of any Islamic organization or tarikat group to perform the five times compulsory prayers, to fast in the month of Ramadan, to pay zakat or to perform the Pilgrimage in Mecca. The work of inviting the non-Muslims to recite the Great Kalimah and to remind the Muslims about the Great Kalimah and the orders of Allah is the same as the work of inviting people to good and forbidding people from evils mentioned in the Quran and Hadis which is the work that fulfils the right of reciting or testifying the Great Kalimah – I bear witness that there is no God except Allah and I bear witness that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah which is the First Pillar of Islam CLICK.
We do the work of inviting the non-Muslims to recite the Great Kalimah because it is the order of Allah, the first pillar of Islam and our intention in obeying the orders of Allah is only to please Allah until Allah is pleased and not because we want to gain power or to obtain sovereignty over the non-Muslims. When we attain the pleasure of Allah, Allah has promised us that we will get everything including power and wealth. We should do the work of the Prophet only to please Allah until Allah is pleased while we believe in the promises of Allah. DAP has been using Anwar to gain power and Anwar has been using PAS to become the Prime Minister of Malaysia. If not because there are many Anwar’s agents in PAS, PAS could not be used by Anwar. The people of Anwar in PAS has control over Tuan Guru Nik Aziz and Tuan Guru Haji Hadi, thus PAS can be used by Anwar to achieve his dream to become the Prime Minister of Malaysia. Initially DAP saw the opportunity to gain power by using Anwar while Anwar can use PAS, but with the Liwat and the Sex Video scandal CLICK, DAP ceased to see the opportunities to gain power through Anwar and Pas. The election results in Sarawak recently have shown to DAP that Anwar and PAS have become liabilities. All the seats won by DAP in Sarawak were due to the supports from the Chinese. The Malays and the Bumiputras had not supported PAS and PKR. PAS and PKR received votes only from the Chinese voters. What is the next strategy of DAP to gain power to rule Malaysia? Getting only the supports from the Chinese voters will not give them power to rule Malaysia. The next strategy of DAP to gain power to rule Malaysia is by using religion. Since many Chinese have become Christians, DAP has started a new campaign, which is to make Christianity as the official religion of Malaysia and the Prime minister of Malaysia to be a Christian. DAP intends to provoke the Malay Muslims particularly the UMNO members. Now UMNO is standing alone to tackle this issue. DAP has swallowed PKR and PAS into their stomach. Muslims in PAS and PKR will have to remain silent on the issues since Haji Hadi has solemnly declared to the world that PAS will stand strong behind Pakatan Rakyat. It will be a great shame for PAS to pull away from Pakatan Rakyat. In case UMNO members turn radical by burning the Churches or bombing the houses of the Christians, the situations could become worst and DAP can manipulate the situations to incite the Christians in Malaysia and all over the World to hate the Muslims and Islam, particularly the UMNO members. UMNO will be blamed for any radical actions done by any Muslim. UMNO’s image will be bad and radical and will be hated by the Christians in the whole World. DAP will then gain political advantages over UMNO. DAP is not interested in saving people from the tortures of the Hellfire as the Muslims do, nor they are interested in turning people to Christianity as the Christian priests do. What DAP wants is the power to rule Malaysia as how PAP has power to rule Singapore. DAP and PAP are two brothers with the same intention that is to rule Malaysia and Singapore. Now DAP wanted to manipulate the Christians and their priests to gain power to rule Malaysia after failing to use Anwar and PAS. Intelligent and shrewd people are good in manipulating other people for their vested interests; and the President of DAP is no other than Karpal Singh who is known as an intelligent and shrewd lawyer in Malaysia.
What the government and UMNO should do is to advise the Muslims Malays, particularly the more radical Malay groups such as Perkasa to remain calm and more importantly is to encourage the Muslim Malay in Malaysia to intensify the work of Dakwah to the non-Muslims and the work of reminding the Muslims to do dakwah to the non-Muslims. Articles on how to do the work of Dakwah to the non-Muslims and the work of reminding the Muslims to do Dakwah to the non-Muslims have been written in this blog CLICK. All Muslims in Malaysia must read these articles and these articles shall be translated into Malay language. The government must encourage the work of Dakwah to the non-Muslims with love and gentleness as our Prophet had done and the articles related to the Dakwah to the non-Muslims written in the blog CLICK, should be encouraged to be read by all Muslims in Malaysia. The Muslim Malays should not be upset and angry by the provocations from DAP. We must turn the provocations to our advantage that is to intensify the work of Dakwah to the non-Muslims. When we do the work of our Prophet only to please Allah until Allah is pleased, Allah promised to solve our problems and to dignify and honour us and Allah will not allow the non-Muslims to rule over us in this country.
