What if Datuk T was a Christian or A Hindu?

Salam Umat Islam Malaysia

Mohon izin untuk bersuara. 

1696. Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) said: The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, "If anyone hears a man inquiring in the mosque about something he has lost, he should say: `La raddaha Allahu `alaika (May Allah not restore it to you),' for mosques are not built for this purpose.''

1697. Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) said: The Messenger of Allah said, "When you see someone buying or selling in the mosque, say to him: `La arbaha-Allahu tijarataka (May Allah not make your bargain profitable)!' When you see someone announcing something lost in it, say: `May Allah not restore it to you!'''

1698. Buraidah (May Allah be pleased with him) said: A man announced (the loss of his camel) in the mosque, uttering these words: "Has any one seen my red camel?'' Upon this the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, "May it not be restored to you! The mosques are built for what they are meant to be (i.e., prayer, remembrance of Allah, acquiring knowledge, etc.).''

1699. `Amr bin Shu`aib on the authority of his grandfather (May Allah be pleased with him) said: The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) prohibited (us) from buying and selling in the mosque; (he also prohibited us from) making announcement in it about something lost and from reciting poems in it.
[Abu Dawud and At-Tirmidhi].
1. Some `Ulama' have stated that the prohibition in the above stated Ahadith is in the nature of aversion and disgust if the acts mentioned in the Hadith do not lead to disturbing those engaged in worship (be it Salat, recitation of the Qur'an or similar good acts) in the mosque. If they do disturb the worshippers, then the prohibition would be absolute.
2. Recitation of such poems is prohibited which relate to love stories and romantic tales. There is no harm in reciting such poems in mosques which relate to the Oneness of Allah, obedience of His Prophet (PBUH), and other subjects meant for the reformation of Muslims.
3. It is permissible to talk about the problems of Muslims and any other issues which are concerned with the welfare of community at large.
4. It is prohibited to hold Qawwali (singing spiritual topics) in mosques because it is accompanied by music and musical instruments. The verses recited in Qawwali are largely based on exaggeration and go beyond the limits prescribed by the Shari`ah. Such things unnecessarily pacify the sentiments of the public and incline them to inaction. It is a pity that many people regard Qawwali permissible, which is sheer ignorance.

1700. As-Sa`ib bin Yazid (May Allah be pleased with him) said: While I was in the mosque, someone threw a pebble at me, and when I looked up, I saw that it was `Umar bin Al-Khattab, who said: "Go and call me these two men.'' I brought them and `Umar (May Allah be pleased with him) asked them: "Where are you from?'' On their replying that they belonged to At-Taif, he said: "Had you been the inhabitants of Al-Madinah, I would have given you a beating for raising your voices in the mosque of the Messenger of Allah (PBUH).''
Commentary: The action of `Umar (May Allah be pleased with him) mentioned in the Hadith tells us that to speak loudly in the mosque amounts to desecrating it, which is a punishable offense.
2. If one is able of it, he must stop people from acts which amount to denial of Divine injunctions and contravene the Shari`ah. Go here

Go figure folks what is happening.

Is the Mosque now a place to shove one another? Memekak macam kat tepi jalan?

Enough of this please.

Society MUST Rise to condemn this act.

Its a place of worship treat it with respect

What if Datuk T was a Christian or a Hindu and he wants to swear to a priest ?

Spesial Position in Vernacular Land: The 30% Quota for Selected Little Ahbengs and AhSohs to Speak Bahasa

KUALA LUMPUR, April 26 — A significant number of secondary school dropouts with Chinese primary vernacular education have little, or zero, command of English or the national language, according to a study.
Observers say this has created a group of Chinese who only interact within their own ethnic community and points to increasing racial polarisation in multicultural Malaysia.

Education ministry studies have shown that nearly one in four Chinese students has failed to complete secondary school education and their dropout rate is virtually the same as that for Malays and other races.
In the latest survey of 159 schools nationwide last year, the National Union of Teaching Profession (NUTP) found that one-third of students from those schools cannot understand either English or Bahasa Malaysia (BM) when they transfer to national secondary schools.

Another one-third was found to be able to understand only a little bit of English or BM, while the remaining one-third could comprehend fully.

NUTP secretary-general Lok Yim Pheng told The Malaysian Insider the survey was to find out the reasons for the high dropout rate among the Chinese students required to participate in the “remove class”, a year-long programme to ease their transfer from Chinese primary school to Malay-medium government school.
“Some students are not interested in their studies and play around,” she said, but deferred commenting on the significance of the survey.

Retired school principal Cheng Su Chean said there were Chinese students who were fluent in both BM and English and credited it to their wide exposure to different cultures outside school.
“Most of our Chinese children do not have this sort of environment. And nowadays, they do not mix around, not like our time,” said the 68-year-old, who was formerly headmistress of SRJK (C) Pudu in the capital city.

“Their interaction is limited. Ninety-eight per cent keep to their Chinese friends and so speak Chinese every day,” she added.

Senior fellow Socio-economic and Environmental Research Institute (Seri), Datuk Dr Toh Kin Woon, observed that “this is one of the contributory factors leading to racial polarisation”.

“Because of the linguistic barrier, they are not able to interact with their peers in school,” he said.

The Penang-based pundit also noted that many of those who came from a low economic class formed the bulk of the drop-outs, which created a vicious cycle as “education was no longer a vehicle for social advancement” due to the language barrier.

“They can’t get into government-sanctioned training institutes, so they don’t even have the basic skills [to get a job],” Toh said.
“Because of this, some might go overseas where they may end up as illegal workers... which could contribute to the black economy,” he added.

Tan Yew Sing who heads the KL-Selangor Chinese Assembly Hall admitted that the problem was very serious and the association had set up a committee to look into the issue and arrest the problem.

He said the racial divide has become more pronounced in the last 10 years, starting with primary school education.

“The whole [education] system needs to be revamped... We need to find out how to build up an environment for interaction with people of difference races,” Tan told The Malaysian Insider. Go here

Pelik bin Ajaib...

It's as if they got some Spesial 30% quota for selected Ahbengs n AhSohs to speak BM..the rest can remain as AhBengs n AhSoh in Vernacular Land land

Time to go "ROYAL" on Education Issues and For GAPENA to go fly a Teapot

Gapena gesa Putrajaya tidak hidupkan PPSMI
April 25, 2011
KUALA LUMPUR, 25 April — Gabungan Persatuan Penulis Nasional Malaysia (Gapena) membantah langkah kemungkinan Putrajaya memperkenalkan semula dasar Pengajaran dan Pembelajaran Sains dan Mateamtik Dalam Bahasa Inggeris (PPSMI) dalam dua bahasa pengantara ekoran desakan pelbagai pihak.
Kerajaan mengumumkan dasar baru menggantikan PPSMI pertengahan tahun lalu.
Setiausaha Satu Gapena Prof Madya Datuk Zainal Abidin Borhan berkata pengumuman membolehkan PPSMI dalam dua bahasa pengantar sedikit sebanyak merupakan kemenangan politik kepad Persatuan Ibu Bapa Untuk Pendidikan Malaysia (Page).
Sehubungan itu soal beliau, apakah kepentingan rakyat terbanyak tidak merupakan kepentingan politik manakala kepentingan rakyat terbanyak tidak didahulukan.
“PPSMI kini mencetuskan polemik yang tidak kunjung selesai, malah menimbulkan reaksi yang pelbagai apabila Perdana Menteri menyebut di kalangan sahabat Facebook di Pulau Pinang bahawa kemungkinan kerajaan akan mengkaji cadangan PPSMI diajar di dalam dua bahasa pengantar,” kata beliau di ruangannya diterbit Utusan Malaysia hari ini.
Kata beliau, Page dan beberapa akhbar berbahasa Inggeris mula mencanangkan isu bilingualism untuk PPSMI sebagai jalan keluar terbaik, suatu situasi menang-menang, yang tidak semestinya terbaik.
Zainal berkata Persatuan Linguistik Malaysia bersama-sama 48 pertubuhan Melayu juga Gapena membantah sekeras-kerasnya akan cadangan berkenaan.
“Lulus jarum lulus kelindan, bermula dari PPSMI, maka akan ada pula cadangan untuk multilingualism di sekolah-sekolah,” katanya.
Zainal berkata, identiti nasional yang berteraskan kepada seluruh wadah dan wahana kebangsaan akan hancur luluh, diluluh-lantakkan oleh kepentingan kelompok minoriti.
“Bahasa sebagai simbol perjuangan kebangsaan, perpaduan kebangsaan yang berteraskan semangat kebangsaan tidak lagi mempunyai apa-apa makna. Ia akan terakam sebagai satu sejarah yang dikalahkan oleh kepentingan praktis dan material kehidupan manusia.
Para pejuang bahasa sekeras-kerasnya menolak PPSMI tetapi tidak menolak peri pentingnya bahasa Inggeris. Mereka memikirkan kepentingan bangsa dan negara bukannya kepentingan sekelompok kecil elit dan kelas atasan,” katanya.

Zainal menambah, ditimbulkan persoalan ini bukannya para pejuang bahasa antikelas tetapi khuatir ada pihak yang akan mengguna isu ini dalam kerangka kepentingan politik.
Secara khususnya kata beliau, pembesaran kelas menengah Melayu disebabkan oleh pelaksanaan Dasar Bahasa Kebangsaan dan Dasar Pendidikan Kebangsaan.
“Semakin ramai kelas teknokrat, korporat dan birokrat Melayu adalah disebabkan kedua-dua dasar tersebut, walau pun dari segi jumlah kelas ini masih kecil berbanding kelas yang sepertinya di kalangan bukan Melayu,” katanya lagi.
Amat dikhuatirkan bahasa Inggeris menjadi bahasa pengucapan kelas birokrat, teknokrat dan korporat Melayu di bandar seperti Bukit Damansara dan kawasan-kawasan sepertinya berbanding majoriti rakyat di luar bandar yang terus berbahasa Melayu.
“Maka bahasa Inggeris untuk kelas atasan Melayu manakala bahasa Melayu untuk kelas bawahan Melayu,” katanya lagi.
Zainal juga berkata, seandainya isu PPSMI kembali dipolitikkan dan parti politik Melayu yang dominan seperti Umno sepi pula untuk memberikan reaksi, kemungkinan parti politik pembangkang Melayu lain akan mengutipnya mewadahi perjuangan politik mereka.

“Faktor jurang kebudayaan ini boleh dimanipulasi untuk kepentingan politik. Sekiranya agenda Memartabatkan Bahasa Melayu dan Memperkukuhkan Bahasa Inggeris (MBMMBI) tidak direalisasi secara konkrit, maka masalah juga akan muncul.
Beliau menambah, daripada pengalaman di beberapa bahagian dunia bahasa boleh mencetuskan konflik dalaman sesuatu negara, tetapi adalah amat diharapkan isu PPSMI ini tidak terjerumus ke lembah konflik.
“Pihak pemerintah telah mengemukakan MBMMBI, maka pelaksanaannya perlu disegerakan dan tidak wajar PPSMI dikaji semula atau dilaksanakan dalam apa jua bentuk,” katanya.
Kata beliau, pendekatan dan kaedah yang ditetapkan oleh MBMMBI amat memadai untuk mempertingkatkan keterampilan berbahasa Inggeris di kalangan para pelajar sekolah.

“Kita tidak mahu ada kelompok yang terus mengasingkan diri dari kelompok majoriti. Pengasingan budaya melalui bahasa amat berbahaya.
Janganlah isu PPSMI diulang kembali untuk memusnahkan segala harapan untuk mencapai kemajuan, kesejahteraan, keamanan, masa depan rakyat terbanyak dan negara, maka berjiwa besarlah untuk mengutamakan kepentingan rakyat terbanyak,” katanya. Go here

YB Khairy what "Virtual Constitutional Guarantee" are you talking about?

Dear YB Khairy.

I was recently notified of your recent column published in the Edge, thank you for having the guts to venture into the subject matter. 

Allow me to reproduce your full piece for my readers.

Engage multiculturalism early on
I think the biggest elephant in the 1Malaysia room is the societal behaviour of Malaysians themselves. I do not deny that national unity suffers from politics, political parties and politicians.
People in my profession - from all parties (even those that claim to be multiracial) - are routinely guilty of ethnocentric politics, reaching out to different communities at the expense of others. Politics is also a reflection of the society that we live in. And the fact of the matter is many Malaysians still live in silos with a heightened sense of suspicion towards other ethnic communities.
But rather than philosophising about this fundamental question in generalities, I attempted to address the policy-making behind the often ephemeral question of national unity during the debate on the Agong's Royal Address in Parliament recently.
It is often said that the reason why racial polarisation is worse today than a few generations back is simply because there is less contact and interaction now. Those who attended local universities in the 1960s and 70s will regale you with stories of how students of different ethnicity hung out together, in marked contrast to the scenes at our varsities today where posses of friends are usually mono-ethnic.
Some have pointed out that the problem starts much earlier, during the formative years of young Malaysians. The fact that today more Malaysian kids of Chinese ethnicity attend vernacular schools rather than national schools contributes to the drastic reduction in contact hours between our children.

Although many of these students end up in national secondary schools, there is already a psychological perspective that has been formed during the earlier (and arguably most impressionable) years of their education in which they grew up in largely mono-ethnic environments. Of course, there are non-Chinese students who attend Chinese vernacular schools but for the most part, the overwhelming majority of children there are from one ethnic group.
One solution to address this polarity that has been brought about by the existence of different types of schools in Malaysia has been to just have one school - the national school. Advocates for this argument say that for as long as vernacular schools exist, our kids will be separated during their formative years and will carry with them a ‘silo-ed’ worldview into their teenage years and beyond.

While there are great merits to this argument, principally the notion that all Malaysian children will be educated under one roof and all the wonderful consequences that this might have on national unity, I doubt there would be any government that would commit themselves to this. Vernacular schools are a virtually sacrosanct institution for many members of the Chinese and Indian communities for which they have a virtual constitutional guarantee for it's continued existence.

Lu biar serious Bastard?

Folks look at this video below go to 2:25 for the exact "Mustahil" check out his facial expression

Mustahil = Incredible?

Now tell me which part of the Kamus Dewan says that?

Mustahil in case you are wondering means

tidak boleh jadi, tidak mungkin, tidak masuk akal: dahulu orang memikirkan bahawa penyakit kusta ini ~ dapat diubati; memustahilkan menganggap mustahil, meng­anggap tidak mungkin: jangan ~ sesuatu kejadian yg belum kamu ketahui; kemustahilan 1. perihal mustahil; 2. sesuatu yg tidak mungkin.

Al-Kitab soon to be available in a Store next to you? A look at Jala's 10 Point "Solution" and Malaysian Penal Code 298A

4 days after I Challenged the State to amend the State Enactment regarding "Allah"....A Mufti steps up to the plate....

KUALA LUMPUR, April 4 — Perak Mufti Tan Sri Harussani Zakaria has challenged Putrajaya to abolish Islamic laws regarding the use of Allah after allowing Christians to freely distribute Malay-language bibles across the country.

He said the decision insults the Quran and contravenes the Control and Restriction of the Propagation of Non-Islamic Religions Enactment, which bars non-Muslims from using Allah to refer to God in all states besides Sabah, Sarawak, Penang and the federal territories.

If the enactment already bans it at the national level, on what basis do we allow it? Is the enactment abolished automatically?

“If the government does this, just cancel the law. I feel disappointed with the government as the law already says it cannot be allowed. If we really want to do this, just abolish the enactment,” he told The Malaysian Insider yesterday.

“When the government allows other religions to use Allah, it insults the Quran,” he added. More here
