I'm tired

I'm tired. exhausted. worn out.

It's really really tiring to go against the tides. To walk the path not defined. To traverse the seas against the wind. Not riding on the waves of time and space.

It's very difficult and I'm almost done trying.

What if I did? What if I didn't care? What if I walk away from all these? Would I regret?

*Thinking *Reflecting *Deciding...

we must not let mob's to rule by Dr. Azmi Sharom

This is an excerpt from The Star newspaper from a columnist, Dr. Azmi Sharom, a law professor of University of Malaya. In this column, he points out on what basis is the Malay-Muslim people of Malaysia has erred with regards to the Quran, law, history and cultural background.

In Surah 22 Verse 40 of the Quran, it is said: “Had not Allah checked one set of people by means of another, there would surely have been pulled down monasteries, churches, synagogues, and mosques, in which the name of Allah is commemorated in abundant measure.”

Looks pretty clear to me. There is no scriptural justification to stop non-Muslims from using Allah to describe God. In fact the opposite is true, the name Allah is praised in “monasteries, churches, synagogues, and mos-ques”.

This is not my assertion, this is a quote from the Holy Quran, and there are more in the same vein.

> Dr Azmi Sharom is a law teacher. The views expressed here are entirely his own.

I received this in an email from a friend... Enjoy the joke :)

A man came home from work and his children ran to him and called out ‘Ayah ! Ayah !’.

His neighbor got very upset and said to him, “Can you please tell your children not to call you ‘Ayah’ ?”

The man asked, “Why?”

The neighbor retorted, “Because my children call me ’Ayah’ too. They might get confused and mistake you to be their father."

Marina M might say... the father not confident?

politics, Islam, Christians... (happenings in Malaysia)

I'll been some time since my last post. I have quite a lot of things, thoughts, etc that I came across with pertaining to politics, philosophy, my ideas, my belief.

Its not easy to pen down all these, but I shall start trying from time to time.

For now, I shall talk about politics, politics in MY OWN backyard, my BELOVED Malaysia.

As of Dec 31, 2009, the high court in my beloved country has ruled in favour of the Roman Catholic Church regarding the ban that was placed upon non-Muslim's in general to use the word "Allah" which in Arabic means God Almighty per se.

The Malay-Muslim community has since then protested in mosques over this issue. This has then led to vandalism by throwing paints at Christian schools and 'bombing' of churches with Molotov bombs. However, these NGO's that has protested against the use of the word "Allah" itself has condemned such violent acts and deemed it to be cowardly acts, and has offered to help protect Christian churches.

Arguments from both sides were presented in court, with many proof shown. There were many arguments and point of views given by Malay-Muslims themselves on this 'kalimah Allah'; the liberals and the conservatives alike.

One may say that I may be biased in my thoughts, but I too am of the opinion that the court ruled right. On the basis of history, law and practises of the Christian faith, as well as world wide views and practises, notwithstanding the practises of other non-Islamic religions such as Sikhism.

Here is some thoughts to ponder by social activists and some others (Malay-Muslim's).

I've even watched a forum on a tv news channel, al-Jazeera as well as others. One that I wanted to point out is the forum by Marina Mahathir, a PAS political leader and an Islamic student body.
Marina Mahathir and the PAS leader took the more liberal approach that reflects I believe the true Islam of moderation and understanding, a religion of peace and of knowledge. The idea portrayed by the student body, in this forum as well as another forum that I've watch, is one and the same idea, that is they are afraid that Christians, or rather non-Islamic religions that refers to the ONE God as Allah may confuse Muslims. The student organisation as well as some protesters have been banging on this point over and over, and I sincerely believe that this is clearly unfounded worries. How shallow is one's faith to be confused by Christians (a part of the Abrahamic faith, one just like Islam) ?

Marina Mahathir :- Confident people do not get confused

Dr. Muqtedar Khan :- Prophet Muhammad's promise to Christians
[I highly recommend reading this]

Datuk Lau Bee Lan (high court judge) :- her judgement

Datuk Nazri :- 3 states can use the word "Allah"

Please tell me what is wrong with this statement if the Minister in the Prime Minister's Department (Datuk Nazri) knows his law. This is an ignorant statement of the fact that Federal Constitution trumps State enactments. This coming from a minister whom in my last post praised his stand on racist Utusan Malaysia.

A point to ponder upon people.
