Malaysian Night (6) -> Post-MN Snippets


  • I have to thank everyone who was involved in organizing and working for MN’08. The Malaysian student bodies in Nizhniy Novgorod also helped out a lot. There were sacrifices; time, money, energy and sleep. MN would be a total fiasco had it not been for you people and I really appreciate that. I recognized some mistakes on our part and for that we sincerely apologize.

 

  • The honorable guest, His Excellency Dato’ Mohamad Khalis invited some students for breakfast in Aleksandrovsky Sad this morning. We chit-chatted a bit. I am pleasantly surprised to know that our last year’s seniors from NNSMA, who are now registered housemen, were the best (attitude-wise and knowledge-wise) during the interview with Suruhanjaya Perkhidmatan Awam (SPA). The challenge for the next coming batches are to maintain that top position. You wanna be on top?๐Ÿ™‚
  • I was told that it isn’t appropriate for a relatively lapsed and “liberal” Muslim like me to quote anything from Quran and hadeeth. I agree. Only certified scholars should have that exclusivity. And that means no one, NO ONE, even the moderates, conservatives, ultra-conservatives or the medical students can quote or interpret the Quran and Hadeeth. Unless you have a degree on Islamic studies, you can’t talk about Islam. That sounds fair, right?
  • Rota datang lagi… Majlis Maksiat was upgraded to Majlis Kufur (anti-islam @ sheer arrogance @ hypocrite: don’t know which one he meant) with a lot of quotes from the Quran and Hadeeth from an uncertified individual. Majlis Kufur is a serious label, keyword being Kufur. Well, in theory, whatever he brought up can be right… But is it correct practically? Hey, if you are so concerned about “menggabungkan unsur Islam dan kufur” you should have not watched TV and surf the internet as they are the source of many halal mixing with haram or kufur stuffs in this world. But do you refrain yourself from those things? Or just selective haram-ness is good enough for you? Basically, one simply looks at things from the theoretical point of view but offers no solutions as to how to put theory into practice like Majlis Fatwa Kebangsaan. No wonder Muslims are in real dilemma.

 

A tazkirah from Efenem, probably nothing to do with anything that’s happening here, but still important to prevent further serious disease of minority Muslims, which is frivolous excommunication of one another:

โ€œJika seorang lelaki berkata kepada kawannya: Wahai Kafir, maka sungguh perkataan itu mengenai salah satu dari keduanya. Bila yang disebut kafir itu memang kafir maka jatuhlah hukuman kafir itu kepadanya, namun bila tidak, hukuman kafir itu kembali kepada yang mengatakannya.โ€

(HR. Ahmad dari shahabat Abdullah bin ‘Umar, dishahihkan oleh Asy-Syaikh Ahmad Syakir dalam tahqiqnya terhadap Musnad Al-Imam Ahmad no. 2035, 5077, 5259, 5824)

 

  • Didn’t the ambassador Dato’ Mohamad Khalis said in his speech in MN’08 that we have to remain united?

  1. Im just a little confused here.I hope someone can shed some light.
    The guys who made a big hoo hah about Msian Nite,also mentioned about the dim lighting in the hall being the keypoint to Maksiat elements.

    I am just wondering.If that is the case,wouldnt that make all cinemas in Malaysia against Islamic laws and predisposes to maksiat according to what they said.

    I know many Muslims(not only Malaysians) and i believe Islam is a beautiful religion.But to my frank opinion,the ability to quote and refer to scriptures should be reserved to the ones who are really qualified to it.It should not be misused by certain individuals to prove themselves right just by twisting and turning it.

    Only a medical personnel can interpret an ECG@Lab report and suggest proper treatment.Thus,only a person who is trained in the field of religion can read and explain the true meaning of the scriptures.I am very sure everyone will be furiously mad if a Engineering student tries to interpret an ECG tries to convince his juniors to think the same too(Im sure you know where I am getting at๐Ÿ™‚ )

    Have a nice day.

    • Cinema is ok. Basically just make sure that Muslims don’t omit prayers and no maksiat.
      But if there is maksiat in cinema, that would make the maksiat-doer sinful, not the whole cinematographic institution.

  2. I get your point.DOING maksiat in the dark cinema is wrong.Its even wrong among the nonmuslim religions.But based on the idealogy of these guys,the dark is also wrong too.This is what i dont get.Abberations in the understanding.If its so,im sure the fatwa council in Malaysia would have issued a fatwa to snap cinemas out of business……..

    Still confused.

    • in Islam its haram for a man to stare a woman (who is not his kin) and vice versa… if that is so, all ulama and fatwa council should have made TVs and Internet haram… but did they? It’s the question of practicality… A subject or issue is not seen from just one part of Quran or hadeeth, it is seen integratively… If it is seen partially, you’d see many Muslims without TVs and PCs.

      MN for example, yes we agree there are some maksiat happened, but they are simply collaterals. Maksiat is not at all included to be part of the program. We did not organize any of the haram things. We didnt have alcohol or lip-kissing activities as our main program. We only had speeches, performances and exhibitions. If there was any maksiat, it could’ve happened whether MN is organized or not.

      I see big pictures. And I know I cant force people to see the same way I do. Just be reasonable.

  3. Malaysian Nite is for Malaysians.
    not for you, not to please you alone…
    If you guys are bothered about maksiat kufur or ka(F)fir limes..

    COME ON, Grow up. Where’s the spirit of harmony and unity AMONG RACES? Do you want to be labelled a SEPARATIST?
    Do you wanna be on top? of a hitlist that is…

    YOU narrow minded, brainwashed, stuck-up conservs!
    Hypocrite!
    (I shall stop at this)

    p/s: go ahead n whine that a personal attack was made against you or your kind..boohoo

  4. kenapa kita perlu melabel2 sesuatu?tidakkah benda ini menyebab kan kita nampak bodoh? memang perkataan majlis kufur yg di maksudkan saudara faizal bermaksud kufur yg tidak mengeluarkan dari Islam .saya pun baru tahu kufur ada banyak jenis dan trima kasih kerana info itu.tp bagi kebanyakkan orang, makna kufur xde lak diajar di sekolah2 aliran biasa . Jadi secara logik nya memang ramai yang terasa.Orang arab yg cakap arab seumur hidup pun akan marah jika dipanggil kamu berada di majlis kufur.
    Memang dakwah/peringatan penulis itu bagus dan murni,dia juga tidak kisah orang nak baca atau tidak,tp bertanggungjawablah atas penulisan sendri.
    Faiz ,saya rasa telah melakukan yang terbaik dan adil,sebagai ketua satu badan yg berbilang kaum.Smua pendapat telah di ambil kira PPIM,non muslim etc.Jadi tahniah! cacat-cela majlis ini boleh diperbaiki lg jika ada penganjuran dengan kerjasama smua pihak,sama2 beri pendapat yg berguna dan bijaksana.
