January 24, 2010

Allahyarham Syeikh AHMAD DEEDAT (رحمه الله تعالى إلى الجنان إن شاء الله ) yang terkenal dan digeruni oleh pendokong Kristian ada menulis berkenaan kalimah dan nama Allah.   

Sedikit yang dipaparkan di sini buat kulit muka atau montaj :-


Now ask your Christian friend, if he had heard the word - "ALLELUYA." No Christian worth the name will fail to recognise it. Whenever the Christian goes into ecstasy, he exclaims - "Alleluya! Alleluya!", just as we Muslims might exclaim the Takbir - "Allahu Akbar! Allahu Akbar!" Ask him, what is Alleluya? Take him to the Book of Revelation, the last book of the New Testament, Chapter 19; we are informed there that John the disciple of Jesus, saw a vision, in which he heard the angels in heaven singing, Alleluya, Alleluya. Ask him again, what is Alleluya! Is it "hip, hip, hooray; hip, hip, hooray!" Are angels in heaven singing - hip, hip, hoorays to God? Every time when God creates a new galaxy, do the angels exclaim - "hip, hip, hooray!" When He explodes a super-nova, do the angels say, "hip, hip, hooray!"? How absurd!

Then what is Alleluya! The last syllable "YA" is a vocative and an exclamatory particle in both Arabic and Hebrew meaning "OH!" In other words YA = OH, (the vocative); and YA = (!), a note of exclamation, or an exclamatory particle, or as is more commonly known an exclamation mark.

The Semite, both Arab and Jew, begins with the exclamatory particle or exclamation mark. The Westerner, in his language ends with the exclamatory particle or exclamation mark, eg. Stop! Go! Fire! Bang!

Let us repeat the above Tasbih (words of praise) as an Arab or a Jew: ALLE-LU-YA will be YA-ALLE-LU because, as explained above, YA is always at the beginning in both Arabic and Hebrew.

YA ALLE LU would be YA ALLA HU: Meaning, "OH ALLAH!" (You are the Only Being Who deserves worship and Praise) "OH ALLAH!" (You are the Only Being Who deserves worship and Praise).

Unbiased Christians will not fail to recognise Allah as none other than his - El, Eli, Alle, Elah, Alah, Allah. Call upon Him by any name, for His are the Most Beautiful names, as long as those names are not contaminated and as long as they do not conjure up in our minds the images of men or monkeys howsoever glorified they might have been.

GOD In Pre-Islamic Period
- Dr.Wan Azhar Wan Ahmad

This article relates to the conception of God in three communities preceding the rise of Islam and Muslims in Arabia: the pagan Arabs, the Jews and the Christians. 

The discussion is primarily based on the verses available in the Noble Book of Islam, the Qur’an. A considerable number of Quranic verses not only allude to, but elaborate, the validity of the theological beliefs of those groups. 

The prevalent religion of the ancient pagan Arabs was polytheistic idolatry. It was an animistic religion of more than 360 gods and goddesses. Beside these innumerable deities, however, they also believed in a Supreme God called Allah, vaguely though. 

The Qur’an shows at least in four different places that the term ‘Allah’ had been perceived by the pagan Arabs as God the Creator, the Sustainer and Cherisher of the world. Allah to these people was hardly described as the Unique and the Only God to be worshipped without any rivals or partners. On the contrary, the Qur’an further records that this God had associates, namely al-Lat, al-Uzzah and al-Manat, specially venerated as Allah’s three daughters. 

Obviously, Allah in this pre-Islamic time, having associates, companions, daughters, and probably sons too, was not to be regarded as the sole divine superpower.

Due to the above, those pagan Arabs were also known as the Jahiliyyah people, those who were ignorant of divine guidance, or those who were in the state of ignorance of the guidance from God; that is ignorance of a revealed book, hence ignorance of the unity and oneness of God. 

Even after being told of what is right, they stubbornly refused to accept it. So the pagan Jahiliyyah Arabs were those who lived in the ‘time of ignorance’ and obstinately chose to reject the truth.

Now, Judaism and Christianity originally belong to the same group of the Abrahamic faiths, as Islam does, because of their common origin through Prophet Ibrahim who received guidance from Allah, the Unique and true God. The descendants of Ibrahim, Prophet Ismail, was the "Father of the Arabs", thus the ancestral father of Prophet Muhammad; while Prophet Ishaq, was the "Father of the Hebrews", thus the forefathers of Prophet Moses and Jesus. 

Muslims commonly refer to these original Jews and Christians as "People of the Book" as the former were blessed with the holy book known as Tawrah (Torah = Pentateuch) through Moses and the latter with Injil (Gospel) through Jesus. Apparently these people followed the same general teachings in relation to the worship of the One God as known by Ibrahim.

From the Quranic provisions, Muslims learnt that considerable parts of these similar teachings, though originally the inspired words of the true God, were eventually lost, distorted or corrupted over the centuries, to produce what is now known as the Hebrew Bible and the Christian New Testament. 

Therefore, we can hardly say that the form of Judaism or Christianity at the advent of Islam brought by Muhammad, and continued to be embraced and practiced till today, were the same as they were before as originally propagated by Moses and Jesus respectively.

It is these distorted and corrupted versions of Judaism and Christianity that we are going to talk here.

As for Judaism, the religion came earlier than Christianity. Many consider the latter as an off-shoot of the former. A number of Quranic verses indicate that the Jews had applied the name ‘Allah’ to refer to their God. But they wrongly perceived this God as having son(s). 

A verse states that they claimed Uzayr (Ezra) as a son of Allah (9: 30-31). In fact, passages from the Old Testament prove how freely the expression ‘sons of God’ was used by the Jews. They in fact considered themselves as sons of God themselves, the most beloved and ones!

Christianity is a religion that believes, among others, in the trinity conception of God: God the Father, Jesus Christ as the Son of God, or God the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
However, since early days of its inception, Islam introduced a vastly different conception of God. Quranic verses say that Jesus Christ, the son of Mary, was no more than a messenger of God, not His son. 

One particular verse categorically asks people to desist trinity for Allah is the One and only God, and HE is above having a son (4: 171). Another verse reiterates the same but with more emphasis, to the effect that Allah is the one and only God, having neither a son nor a father (112: 1-4). Yet some others state that those who say that Jesus is God (5: 17 & 72) or Allah is one of three in a trinity (5: 73), all have indeed committed blasphemy, i.e. renounced Islam.   

Yet in both religions, the Qur’an indicates that the Christians and Jews were originally commanded to worship but One God, and there is no God but HE. This sole divinity refers to a God whose name is Allah. But due to the distortions and corruptions aforementioned, the unity and oneness of God had become obscured.

From the foregoing discussion we may conclude that the worship of God with other associates, companions, daughters and sons, was not confined only to the pagan Arabs. It also occurred to the Christians and Jews. It was this kind of association of subordinate deities with Allah, known as shirk, that is vehemently disapproved off by Islam.

So when the Quran records that the name ‘Allah’ has been applied by other religions, it does not necessarily mean that Islam acknowledges such employment as right and accurate. On the contrary, those verses merely states that such applications did take place in human religious history. 

Islam is the only religion that propagates the oneness of God in the true sense of the word. It is Islam, as the youngest religion, that came to correct the mistakes, distortions and corruptions in the other two earlier religions and to lead people back to the right path. 

Therefore, if other religions, in their distorted form attempt to impose their corrupted doctrines and teachings upon Islam, Muslims must not allow that to happen. Let alone if it is done by borrowing and using any Islamic key concepts and terms like Allah, baitullah, kaabah, solat, imam, masjid, etc. Any compromise will only inflict confusion and misunderstanding not only among Muslims but the non-Muslims as well.  


Cedok Ajim: "Keliru"

January 14, 2010

Antara bentuk dakyah yang MUNGKIN AKAN turut berleluasa di tanahair kita, bakal mengganggu-gugat kefahaman akidah anak-anak terutamanya....

1. Anda keliru tatkala membaca petikan di atas? Adakah kefahaman akidah Islam anda telah terjejas?

2. Jika fahaman akidah Islam anda tidak terjejas walaupun sedikit, ini bermakna anda mempunyai kefahaman akidah Islam yang jelas dan utuh. Mungkin anda telah menghayati dengan penuh firman Allah dalam surah Al-Ikhlas.

3. Jika anda keliru, dan mula meragui akidah Islam anda, maka ada suatu kelemahan yang perlu diperbaiki. Isu akidah merupakan perkara fundamental yang perlu dipegang utuh oleh setiap orang Islam.

4. Penulis yakin, terdapat dua kelompok orang Islam di Malaysia yang mempunyai ciri seperti di atas. Kelompok yang merasakan akidah mereka tidak terjejas, pastinya tiada halangan terhadap isu penggunaan nama Allah oleh penganut Kristian. Manakala kelompok yang lain, mungkin beranggapan ia bermasalah.

5. Penulis masih tidak tahu, membenarkan nama Allah digunakan oleh penganut Kristian lebih membawa manfaat atau mudharat. Tetapi, Allah itu lebih tahu!

A is for Allah & Muslim Malaya Bersatu

January 05, 2010

A is for Allah is a song composed by Yusuf Islam, recorded for his baby daughter to teach her the arabic alphabet.

Now, referring to our One God - Allah.  Dari isu panas terkini kita boleh lihat keadaan yang memungkinkan Muslim terutama Melayu di "Malaya" ini bersatu tanpa mengira ideologi politik.  Walaupun jika dirujukkan terma Allah ini sudah wujud sekian lamanya dan diguna pakai atau diakui Allah sebagai Tuhan tapi bukan tuhan yang satu kerana suatu ketika masyarakat yang mengakui wujudnya Allah mungkin tidak menerima Keesaan Allah, dalam masa yang sama mereka menyekutukan Allah dan meninggalkan sebahagian besar syariat.  Penerimaan agama lain untuk menggunakan terma ini selain dari Islam setelah berjayanya dakwah nabi terakhir Nabi Muhammad s.a.w. dilihat hanya semata-mata untuk melebarkan dakyah mereka.

Walaupun masyarakat Arab Jahiliyyah tahu terma Allah itu tuhan, tetapi pada pemahaman mereka sudah tentu lain, mereka sebenarnya tidak kenal Allah.  Mereka hanya tahu nama Allah, seolah-olah Allah itu sebaris dengan tuhan-tuhan mereka yang lain.

Melihat kejayaan Islam yang sentiasa berkembang, walau ada yang terkakis akibat lemah iman dan terjerumus dengan pelbagai cara dakyah kafir ini terutamanya dari Kristian, ada kemungkinan besar satu cara memperhebatkan dan menambahkan lagi bilangan Muslim di Malaya jadi murtad adalah dengan penggunaan nama Allah, merujuk kepada makna Tuhan bagi mereka. Saya rasa niat mereka itu tidak lain hanya untuk memesongkan lagi akidah La Ilaha Illa Allah.

Mahkamah tidak akan menilai sensitiviti. Biar pun pergi ke peringkat rayuan kelak.  Inilah masanya Muslim Malaya tidak kira bangsa apa dan parti apa, bersatu menegakkan kalimah Allah.  Letakkan sempadan seumpama menahan air empangan, cegah sebelum parah.  Sambil menjaga kebebasan beragama, sedarlah wahai Kristian Malaya, jangan cucuh sumbu Muslim Malaya, bangkitlah Muslim Malaya, bangkitlah Raja Melayu, bangkitlah Perdana Menteri Muslim, kerana kita sudah menghidu bau busuk hati kamu..... JIHAD FI SABILILLAH

The Malaysian Insider:-

KOTA BARU, Jan 3 – PAS spiritual leader Datuk Nik Aziz Nik Mat has come out in support of the Catholic weekly Herald use of ‘Allah’ to describe the Christian God in the national language, saying it was permissible for those following the Abrahamic faith.
But the popular cleric expressed worry that the word “Allah” could be abused by certain quarters, echoing growing sentiment of Muslim Malaysians aghast at the Dec 31 High Court ruling that permitted its use.
“Its just a fear it can be abused. That’s the worry,” the Kelantan mentri besar said today when commenting on the landmark ruling.
