Freemasonry is a secret, worldwide organization. The organization’s cunning and secret plan is to spread strife among believers, to lead the world toward irreligion, war and disorder and to establish a loveless human society whose members are in constant conflict with one another by spreading Darwinist philosophy across the globe. The reason why the masonic system that rules the world has this aim is because the representatives of the system receive the order to spread corruption across the world directly from satan himself. The demon that senior masons worship and receive their orders from is known as Lucifer. The Lucifer worshiped by the masons is described as follows in one reference source:


Masonry was organized as a reaction to Christian belief and also opposed all the other faiths that praise Allah as the One and Only. But masons never expressed this openly and strive to achieve their aims under a religious guise. Despite being a reaction and belief system opposed to all divine religions, freemasonry used its religious guise in a highly effective manner.

W. L. Wilmhurst summarized the reality that a new Christian entrant to a lodge would encounter:

… but as they are told that religious discussion, which means, of course, secretarian religious discussion, is forbidden in the Lodge, they infer that
Masonry is not a religious institution...

So, Masons who are 'Christians' are disobeying Jesus' command. ii

As these words show, many devout Christians are unaware of how the masonic system that emerged as the greatest threat to Christianity acts behind a religious mask. This sinister organization with its Christian mask is able to spread its heretical views in this way and even influence a number of devout believers. It is this masonic indoctrination that underlies the distorted perspective toward Islam of some evangelicals, their expectation of war and disorder in the time of Hazrat Mahdi (as) who will actually bring peace and security to the world today and the completely incomprehensible belief that Hazrat Mahdi (as) will annihilate one-third of the world’s population.

This extract from the book Freemasonry The Invisible Cult in our Midst by former Grand Master Jack Harris are particularly striking:

“If you want to worship God, go to your church; we worship the Supreme Architect of the Universe Here.” iii

As we have already made clear in great details in previous articles, the great architect of the universe worshiped by the masons represents Lucifer, in other words, SATAN. Therefore, the meaning of the above statements is clear: it is impossible for a devout Christian to be a part of a heretical environment involving the worship of satan. In an environment in which satan is worshiped, only those things desired by satan will be done and actions reflecting satan’s ferocity, hypocrisy and rebellion will be planned. It is clear that no decisions reflecting moral virtue, peace, security, friendship or brotherhood will be taken in an environment in which orders are received from satan. All that will be talked about in this environment ruled by satan is slaughter, war, rage, anger and killing. Under its devout and innocent mask, freemasonry imposes the decisions taken in this environment ruled by satan on some evangelicals and some Muslims. That is the basic reason why some evangelicals and Muslims expect war and slaughter when they should espouse peace and security and unity and brotherhood among believers as required by the law of Allah. They have unwittingly been deceived by the vile indoctrination of masonic circles.

The masonic strategy in question is a major one and has succeeded among some devout believers. Its aim is to turn people away from belief in Allah, set true believers who believe in the one Allah against one another, hinder believers who would represent a major force if properly united, strengthen atheist, Darwinist and materialist philosophy by preventing the growth of faith in the world and by doing so to prepare a groundwork of slaughter, war and murder for the antichrist, the corruptor of the End Times. Those people who are misled by masonic circles into regarding believers as the enemy and who expect terrible slaughter in the time of Hazrat Mahdi (as) are thus in a terrible state of error.

Contrary to the vile imputations of masonic circles, the time of the Prophet Jesus (as) and Hazrat Mahdi (as) will be one of peace, security and well-being. This period will be one when true believers in the one Allah unite and grow stronger. In this time, not a single person’s nose will be made to bleed and the sleeper will never be wakened. The vile plots of masonic circles will be brought low, because this is our Almighty Lord’s promise:

They concocted their plots, but their plots were with Allah, even if they were such as to make the mountains vanish. (Surah Ibrahim, 46)

Some masons, who wear an evangelical or Islamic mask, are trying to mislead true believers by submitting their own interpretations of pronouncements in the holy scriptures. The hostile attitude to Islam of certain evangelical Christians is the result of these unpleasant endeavors. This perspective toward Islam they are trying to establish among devout Christians is in fact a false and rotten hoax. Masons are toying with believers by distracting them through this false ruse, preventing any growth in faith and preparing the ground for the sly and repellent propaganda they use against Allah.

Evangelical masons employ a much more unpleasant technique to depict this ruse as valid and to attract support from devout evangelicals, portraying their claims as being based on the Gospel. They know that this is the only way to influence sincere evangelicals. But the fact is that this is a cunning deception. The mindset that seeks to equate Islam with the system of the antichrist (dajjal), on the supposed basis of the Gospel (surely Islam is beyond that) is the masonic mindset that represents the true source of the system of the antichrist. That mindset misleads people BY COMPLETELY MISINTERPRETING AND DISTORTING THE TRUTH IN certain passages from the Gospel.

One reference source explains how freemasonry’s true aim is to divert Christianity away from genuine belief:

The ultimate aim of Freemasonry is to uproot completely the whole religious and political order of the world … and to replace it by another in harmony with their way of thinking. This will mean that the foundation and laws of the new structure of society will be drawn from pure Naturalism." 1

Thus the true aim of freemasonry is to turn Christianity away from its real purpose. But since freemasonry is a system of the antichrist it operates in a sly way, and uses the Gospel in order to distance Christianity from its real purpose, while portraying itself as devout. Believers must be on their guard against this grave peril.

It needs to be made clear that the description of the antichrist in the Gospel is in complete agreement with our Prophet’s (saas) description of the antichrist in the hadith. Therefore, the antichrist awaited by the Muslim world and the antichrist expected by the Christian one will spread the same heretical belief and possess the same characteristics as they will be the same antichrist. But evangelical masons are very cunning in seeking to ascribe all the features of the dajjal to Islam, and point to supposed proof in the Gospel as they do so.

This effrontery and policy of provocation exhibited by masons wearing an evangelical mask is intended to incite hatred and anger against true Muslims across the world. By portraying themselves as devout and claiming that their inspiration comes from the Gospel, these people try to ascribe oppression and slaughter, things that do not exist in Islam, to the religion. Sincere Christians must be on their guard against these people’s cunning. As a result of this misdirection, sincere and devout Christians have a false idea of and misinterpret Islam, and remain unaware of the fact that it is a religion of beauty, peace and love. This stratagem also leads to the emergence of an artificial divide between Muslims and Christians. As a result of this cunning plan, true believers who have faith in the same Allah are unable to be united, the aim being, on the contrary, for there to be dispute and argument between them. This, of course, prepares the ideal groundwork for freemasonry, the system of the antichrist that wishes to spread irreligion, Darwinism, anarchy, oppression, war, murder and degeneration across the world, to cunningly continue its activities.

As it has throughout the course of history, freemasonry is able to grow stronger so long as it can keep true believers divided. In order to spread irreligious rule and strengthen its own ideology, freemasonry must therefore ensure that believers are weak and fragmented. That is why one major aim for masons is to impair the alliance among true believers and split them apart. The most effect means of doing this, in masons’ eyes, is to make use of masons wearing an evangelical mask who have no qualms about pointing to the Gospel as their source of inspiration. Devout Christians, who fall for the trap set by masons wearing an evangelical mask, are unknowingly and unwillingly making themselves a tool for the masonic policy of disseminating irreligion. All true believers must therefore be on their guard against this terrible snare and wage their real intellectual campaign against those ideologies that oppose Allah in a spirit of complete unity. Believers must never forget that the worst danger is freemasonry, which seeks to spread irreligion, and heretical ideologies such as Darwinism and materialism under masonic control.

Jangan politikkan masa depan pendidikan negara - DR. RIDHUAN TEE

Jangan politikkan masa depan pendidikan negara


Mingguan Malaysia 22 Nov 2009

Saya amat mengharapkan kerajaan tidak akan tunduk kepada desakan Persekutuan Persatuan-persatuan Cina Malaysia (Hua Zong) supaya membantu 60 Chinese Independent Secondary School serta mengikhtiraf sijil yang dikeluarkan (UEC). Cukuplah dengan lebih 1300 SJKC yang telah sedia ada, dan akan bertambah dari masa ke semasa. Pemisahan di sekolah rendah sudah cukup berat bagi kita untuk memperkasa masa hadapan. Apakah kita mahu terus memisahkan mereka apabila berada di sekolah menengah? Ini belum ditambah dengan IPTS yang berasaskan kaum yang begitu ketara bilangannya, yang menggunakan bahasa ibunda sepenuhnya seperti di Kajang, Kuala Lumpur dan sebagainya. Saya boleh namakan satu persatu. Biarlah saya simpan dahulu. Apakah ini semangat 1Malaysia?

Di sekolah vernakular, bahasa Melayu hanya diajar tiga kali dalam seminggu. Apakah mereka ini boleh menguasai bahasa kebangsaan dengan baik? Buatlah kajian. Lihat sahaja keputusan UPSR pelajar-pelajar ini dalam bahasa Melayu dan kelas peralihan. Itu sudah cukup memberikan gambaran. Selepas itu buatlah bancian di kampung-kampung baharu. Nilailah tahap penguasaan bahasa kebangsaan. Saya bukan anti Cina. Saya amat sayangkan bangsa saya sebab mereka adalah juga kejadian Allah. Jika saya menolak mereka, bermakna saya menolak Allah yang menjadikan saya sebagai orang Cina. Apakah saya anti-Cina bila membangkitkan isu ini?

Biarlah kita bergaduh hari sekarang demi masa depan. Mudah-mudahan anak cucu cicit kita sejahtera hidup selepas ini. Kepentingan mereka mesti diutamakan berbanding kepentingan kita. Sebenarnya, menteri pelajaran mempunyai kuasa penuh untuk menolak semua sekolah vernakular ini. Tetapi kuasa itu tidak digunakan. Fikirkanlah toleransi yang tidak ada tolok bandingnya.

Sebelum tahun 1996, kita ada Akta Pelajaran 1961 Seksyen 21 (1B) yang memberi kuasa kepada menteri pelajaran untuk menutup atau memansuhkan SJKC/T. Akta ini amat ditakuti oleh persatuan-persatuan Cina. Mereka telah merayu dan mendesak kerajaan supaya memansuhkan akta ini. Atas dasar tolak ansur, pada tahun 1995, menteri pelajaran ketika itu mengambil keputusan berani memenuhi hasrat kaum Cina dengan menarik balik kuasa atau peruntukan itu apabila membentangkan Akta Pelajaran baru pada 1996 yang lebih lunak.

Akta Pelajaran 1996 yang diperkenalkan masih lagi tidak dipersetujui oleh segelintir ultra kiasu. Ultra kiasu ini berpendapat, pindaan terhadap Akta Pelajaran 1961 kepada 1996 telah menyelesaikan satu masalah dengan memansuhkan Seksyen 21 (1)(b), tetapi menimbulkan masalah baru dengan tambahan Seksyen 17 (1). Menurutnya, Seksyen 17 (1) telah memberi kuasa baru kepada menteri pelajaran untuk memaksa sekolah vernakular menggunakan bahasa Melayu sebagai bahasa pengantar utama.

Ultra kiasu berhujah, akta sebelumnya hanya menghalang sekolah rendah tetapi kini akta baru itu membolehkan kementerian menghalang, daripada pendidikan pra-sekolah hingga kepada pendidikan selepas peringkat menengah. Berdasarkan kepada Seksyen 28 dalam akta baru itu, hanya sekolah vernakular milik kerajaan negeri atau yang diberi ‘kebenaran khas’ oleh menteri pelajaran, yang mungkin dikecualikan daripada peruntukan di bawah Seksyen 17 (1).

Sebenarnya, akta Pendidikan 1996 yang juga dikenali sebagai Akta 550 ‘lebih lembut’ berbanding akta pelajaran 1961 yang dimansuhkan. Tidakkah ini satu toleransi? Sanggup korbankan kuasa semata-mata untuk meraikan orang lain. Kepada golongan ultra kiasu yang selalu menentang saya bacalah akta ini dan bandingkan dengan akta sebelumnya. Siapakah yang menggubal akta ini kalau bukan Perdana Menteri kita hari ini yang ketika itu adalah menteri pelajaran. Menteri pelajaran sebelum itu, langsung tidak mahu bertolak ansur. Siapakah dia? Tanyalah sekutu parti ultra kiasu ini. Sayapun tidak faham kenapa mereka begitu baik hari ini sedangkan sebelum itu akta 1961 yang paling ditakuti ultra kiasu.

Namun, sekumpulan ultra kiasu ini tidak pernah bersyukur, apatah lagi untuk menghargai. Saya tidak nampak beza SJKC dengan sekolah Cina di negeri China dari segi bahasa, kecuali tambahan mata pelajaran bahasa Melayu 3 jam seminggu? Saya teringat kata-kata Khoo Kay Kim, sistem pendidikan hari ini mesti memenuhi keperluan 1Malaysia. Sistem pendidikan pelbagai tidak akan membantu rakyat memahami gagasan tersebut. Kanak-kanak dipisahkan sejak kecil. Bila membesar agak sukar untuk mereka memberikan kerjasama sama antara satu lain. Sekolah vernakular pada asalnya diwujudkan bagi membolehkan orang Cina India belajar asal-usul negara mereka. Tetapi hari ini mereka telah menjadi rakyat Malaysia, sepatutnya keadaan sedemikian tidak perlu wujud lagi. Kay Kim amat kesal dengan segelintir pihak yang mempertahankan sekolah berasaskan kaum ini.

Saya amat mengharapkan mereka yang terlalu banyak bercakap mempertahankan sekolah vernakular ini supaya membuat kajian secara menyeluruh. Jangan asyik menyalahkan kerajaan sahaja. Apakah agenda mereka sebenarnya? Jika mahu mempertahankan warisan nenek moyang, jagalah budaya dan cara hidup semua sekali? Jangan hanya isu bahasa sahaja, sebab isu bahasa adalah masalah negara. Saya minta mereka buat kajian tentang prestasi bahasa Melayu (BM) sekolah vernakular. Pertama, kebolehan dan keupayaan memahami dan bertutur dalam BM. Kedua, peratus kegagalan BM. Ketiga, masalah kelas-kelas peralihan dan masalah komunikasi antara pelajar dalam BM. Keempat, pergaulan pelajar peralihan dengan pelajar Melayu. Kelima, kegagalan dan kelulusan rendah dalam BM peringkat PMR dan SPM. Keenam, kefahaman dan kebolehan BM setelah tamat sekolah menengah. Ketujuh, kebolehan bertutur BM di kalangan bukan Melayu. Kalau tidak mahu buat kajian juga, ambil sampel beberapa pemimpin politik dan NGO yang lantang ini, termasuk pensyarah-pensyarah di jabatan pengajian Tionghua, cubalah uji keupayaan BM mereka?

Kita teramat sedih apabila baru-baru ini, seperti yang dilaporkan oleh akhbar-akhbar Cina, beberapa pertubuhan Cina seperti Dong Zong, Hua Zong, Persatuan Ketua-ketua Sekolah Cina, Persatuan Alumni Sekolah-Sekolah Cina dan lain-lain persatuan, menentang keras cadangan kementerian pelajaran untuk menyeragamkan silibus Bahasa Melayu di SK dan SJKC. Untuk makluman, silibus BM di SJKC lebih mudah berbanding SK. Begitulah bersatunya mereka. Apabila belajar BM mahukan yang mudah-mudah (cincai). Belajar bahasa sendiri mesti secara terperinci. Adakah kita sebenarnya serius memperkasakan negara? Adakah ini bukan ultra kiasu? Adakah kita masih tidak nampak dan sedar? Alasannya begitu simplistik, pelajar-pelajar SJKC tidak boleh dibebankan dengan BM yang agak susah sebab mereka terpaksa belajar tiga bahasa iaitu bahasa mandarin sebagai utama, bahasa Melayu sebagai bahasa kedua dan bahasa Inggeris sebagai bahasa ketiga. Begini nasib bahasa Melayu di bumi Melayu. Tidakkah kita sedar bahawa BM adalah bahasa yang paling mudah dipelajari di dunia? Memanglah susah kalau hanya diajar tiga kali seminggu di SJKC. Adakah kita serius?

Saya tidak menafikan ada segelintir pelajar Cina yang berjaya mendapat keputusan cemerlang dalam bahasa Melayu, tetapi bilangan amat kecil. Itupun setelah diwajibkan lulus. Bayangkan jika syarat itu tidak ada. Apakah belajar bahasa Melayu kerana terpaksa belajar atau semangat sayangkan bahasa kebangsaan? Fikirkanlah. Janganlah menegakkan benang yang basah, yang rugi nanti anak cucu cicit kita, ketika itu kita telah tiada. Jangan kerana ego hari ini kita korbankan kepentingan masa hadapan.

Kepada golongan ultra kiasu ini saya ingin bertanya, berikan saya satu contoh negara di dunia ini yang mengamalkan sistem sebegini? Kalau ada saya akan mengalah. Saya tidak akan sentuh soal pendidikan vernakular. Bukankah syurga kita di sini? Jangan selalu gunakan hujah kepelbagaian sebagai satu kekuatan atau unity within diversity. Terlalu banyak berbeza juga tidak membawa kebaikan. Kita perlu mencari banyak persamaan untuk memenuhi matlamat gagasan 1Malaysia. Persamaan itu hanya akan dapat dicapai dengan berkongsi matlamat wawasan negara. Ia bermula dengan berkongsi sekolah satu aliran, tanpa menafikan hak masing-masing. Jika isu asas seperti bahasa ini pun sudah tidak dipersetujui, apakah dalam perkara lain kita boleh bersetuju? Ringkasnya, sekolah satu aliran adalah satu mimpi jika kita terus berlembut. Kiasu itu dibolehkan. Tidak salah. Malahan Islam membenarkan. Tetapi jangan menjadi ultra kiasu. Kita tetap Cina tetapi jangan jadi terlalu ultra Cina, ultra Melayu, ultra India dan lain-lain ultra bangsa di Sabah dan Sarawak. Itu sudah ekstrim dan melampau.

Saya juga tidak nafikan guru-guru sekolah vernakular rajin dan dedikasi. Tetapi itu bukan bermakna kita boleh buat generalisasi bahawa guru-guru sekolah kebangsaan tidak sama standard dengan SJKC. Ingat! Tidak semua guru-guru SJKC bagus-bagus. Saya juga berpengalaman. Saya bukan Cina masuk Melayu atau Cina murtad. Saya hanya mempertahankan kepentingan masa depan dan anak cucu cicit kita. Jangan politikkan pendidikan kerana ia amat bahaya untuk masa depan negara. Jangan nafikan peranan kerajaan terhadap sekolah bantuan modal seperti SJKC. Perlu diingatkan lebih 400 SJKC adalah bantuan penuh dan dibina oleh kerajaan dalam setiap rancangan Malaysia.

Equality of Men and Woman in Islam, and their complementary nature to one another

Equality of Men and Woman in Islam, and their complementary nature to one another thumbnail

In one sense, equality between men and women is possible and reasonable because they are both human, with similar souls, brains, hearts, lungs, limbs, etc. In another sense, equality between men and women is impossible and an absurdity due to their natural differences in physical, mental, emotional and psychological qualities, inclinations and abilities. Between these two we must tread to illuminate how they are equal, and how they are complimentary.

If total equality between all members of the same gender is impossible due to natural differences in strengths and other qualities, regardless of whether the gender is masculine or feminine, then it is definitely impossible between the two genders. Allah, the Exalted and Almighty, says in the Glorious Qur’an:

(And of everything We have created pairs, that you may remember (the Grace of Allah).)


Even atoms exhibit this dual quality with inter-related and complementary roles played by the positive and negative particles and ions, yet each is an integral part of the whole system of the so called binary basis of all life. Most living beings have male and female sexes for reproduction. As the science of biology teaches us, all mammals have similar traits in their molecular and glandular structures that determine differences in gender. These basic physical, psychological and sexual traits have their definite effects on other spheres of life.

It is natural for a man to need and find fulfillment with a woman and for a woman with a man, since they are created one from the other and for one another. They both are inseparably bound to each other. Neither can they find fulfillment except when in the company of the other as legal and honorable mate and spouse, as Allah (The Almighty) says in His Majestic Book, the Qur’an, mentioned in the two verses cited in the preface:

(O Mankind! We have created you from a male and a female, and made you into nations and tribes, that you may know one another. Verily, the most honorable of you in the Sight of Allah is the believer who has Taqwa (piety and righteousness). Verily, Allah is All-Knowing, All-Aware.)


In many instances Islam treats women as equals to men. Some of them are given below. In the coming sections we will expand on these themes in various contexts throughout the book.

1) Eqaulity in Basic Humanity

Both the male and the female are equal in terms of their humanity. Islam does not categorize women, for instance, as the source of evil in the world for some & original sin that caused Adam (Peace be Upon Him) to be dismissed from Paradise, or to be the cause of evil in the world by setting loose a Pandora’s box of vices, as some other religious doctrines and fables teach.

Allah, the Exalted and Almighty, states in the Glorious Qur’an:

(O mankind! Be dutiful to your Lord, Who created you from a single person (Adam), and from him (Adam) He created his wife (Eve), and from them both He created many men and women…)


Allah also states in the Glorious Qur’an:

(Does man think that he will be left neglected without being punished or rewarded for the obligatory duties enjoined by his Lord (Allah) on him? Was he not a mixed male and female discharge of semen pouring forth? Then he became a clot; then (Allah) shaped and fashioned (him) in due proportion, and made him into two sexes, male and female. Is He not able to raise to life those who are dead?)


Allah illustrated in the verses that He created both sexes from one single source. There is no difference between the two sexes in terms of qualifications in humanity, and each complements the other as the two genders of the species. Islam has abolished and abrogated all the previous unjust laws that demoted women as inferior in quality and nature. The Prophet of Allah (Peace be Upon Him) said:

Verily, women are the twin halves of men.

[Abu Dawood #234 , Tirmidhi #113 & others]

2) Equality in Religious Obligations

Equal religious duties and rituals are required from both women and men. Testimony of Faith (Shahaadah), Prayer (Salah), Obligatory Charity (Zakah), Fasting (Saum), and Pilgrimage (Hajj) are equally required of both genders. In some cases the requirements are a bit easier on women to alleviate their special cases of hardship. For instance, in consideration of her health and physical condition, menstruating women or a woman in the state of postnatal bleeding and recuperation are absolved from the duty of prayers and fasting. She is required to make up the days of fasting missed due to menses and postnatal bleeding, but not her prayers, as that would be too burdensome.

3) Equality in Rewards and Punishments

Both males and females have similar rewards for obedience and penalties for disobedience in this world and the Hereafter. As stated by Allah in the Glorious Qur’an:

(Whoever does righteous acts, whether male or female, while he is a believer, verily, to him We will give a good life, and We shall pay them certainly a reward in proportion to the best of what they used to do.)


And the Lord Most Majestic says:

(Surely for men who submit to Allah and for women who submit to Allah, for believing men and for believing women, for devout men and devout women, for truthful men and truthful women, for steadfast men and steadfast women, for humble men and humble women, for charitable men and charitable women, for fasting men and fasting women, for men who guard their chastity and women who guard their chastity, for men who remember Allah much and for women who remember Allah much, for all of them Allah has prepared forgiveness and a mighty reward.)


4) Equality in Preservation of Honor and Nobility

Women have the same moral obligations and are entitled to the same general rights as men in guarding chastity, integrity and personal honor and respect, etc. No double standards are allowed. For instance, those who falsely accuse a chaste woman of adultery or fornication are publicly punished, just as if a man is slandered. Allah, the Exalted, states in the Glorious Qur’an:

(And those who accuse chaste women, and produce not four witnesses, flog them with eighty lashes, and reject their testimony forever. Indeed, they are those who are disobedient to Allah.)


5) Equality in Financial Dealings and Property Ownership

Women are equally qualified and allowed to engage in financial dealings and property ownership. According to Islamic law women can own, buy, sell and undertake any financial transaction without the need for guardianship, and without any restrictions or limitations – a situation unheard of in many societies until modern times.

6) Best of you is the Best to his Womenfolk

Islam indicates that a man who honors, respects and deals with women justly and integrally, possesses a healthy and righteous personality, whereas a man who mistreats them is an unrighteous and unrespectable man. The Prophet of Allah (Peace be Upon Him) said:

The most complete believer is the best in character, and the best of you is the best to his womenfolk.

[Tirmidhi #1162 and verified]

7) Equality in Education and Cultivation

Islam entitles women to the same rights as men in terms of education and cultivation. The Prophet of Allah (Peace be Upon Him) said, as reported and authenticated by the scholars of prophetic traditions:

Seeking knowledge is compulsory for each and every Muslim (i.e. both male and female).

[Ibn Majah #224 al-Baihaqi and verified]

Muslim scholars collectively agreed that the word Muslim when used in revealed scriptures includes both male and female, as we indicated in parenthesis. Thus, Islam entitles women to the same right of education in order to understand the religious and social obligations, and obligated them both to raise their children in the best manner, in accordance with the right Islamic guidance. Of course women have certain obligations in bringing up their children that are commensurate to their abilities and men have complementary obligations to finance, protect and maintain according to their added responsibilities in the family unit.

The Prophet (Peace be Upon Him) said:

Whoever takes care of two girls until they reach puberty, he and I will come on the Day of Resurrection like this.” The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) then joined his fingers to illustrate this.

[Muslim #2631]

About female slave girls, the Prophet of Allah (Peace be Upon Him) said:

Whoever has a female child with him (under his guardianship from slavery), and trains her in the best behavior, and teaches her well, and then frees and marries her, will have a double reward.

[Bukhari #97 & Muslim #154 ]

8) Equality in Social Responsiblities

Men and women have similar obligations and responsibilities to reform and correct the society to the best of their capability. Men and women shoulder the responsibility of enjoining good and forbidding evil equally, as Allah, the Exalted, states in the Qur’an:

(The believers, men and women, are helpers, supporters, friends and protectors of one another, they enjoin all that is good, and forbid all that is evil, they offer their prayers perfectly, and give Zakah (Obligatory Charity) and obey Allah and His Messenger. Allah will bestow Mercy on them. Surely Allah is All-Mighty, All-Wise.)


9) Right to Receive Fair Share of Wealth

Men and women have set and determined rights to receive their fair share of wealth, just as they are obliged to give Zakah (Obligatory Charity) according to the set calculation. All Muslim scholars unanimously agree upon this. A woman has her set share of inheritance, as will be discussed in more detail later, which was a right unthinkable in many societies.

Allah (The Almighty) says:

(There is a share for men from what is left by parents and those closely related, and there is a share for women from what is left by parents and those closely related, whether the wealth be small or large: a legal mandatory share.)


10) A woman, just like a man, can give someone the right of seeking refuge and security among the Muslims

Allah, the Exalted, says:

(And if one of the polytheists seeks refuge, give him until he hears the words of Allah, then take him to his place of security.)

The Messenger of Allah (Peace be Upon Him) said:

And the protection of Muslims is one, and the least among them can give protection; and whoever usurps the right of a Muslim then the curse of Allah and His angels and all the people is upon him, and no repentance or ransom will be accepted from him

[Bukhari #3008]

This is also proven by the famous story of Um Hani’ (Mother of Hani’) when she gave protection to a polytheist who sought refuge with her on the day of the conquest of Makkah after her relative threatened to kill that person (for some past enmity) so the Messenger of Allah (Peace be Upon Him) said,

We protect and give asylum to whomever you give asylum O Um Hani’.

[Bukhari #350]

These are just some of the rights, mentioned here as examples in a summarized way to indicate the comprehensive nature of the Islamic jurisprudence.

Assalamualaikum wbt

'Hai orang-orang yang beriman, bertakwalah kepada Allah dan hendaklah setiap diri memperhatikan apa yang telah diperbuatnya untuk hari esok (akhirat), dan bertakwalah kepada Allah, sesungguhnya Allah Maha Mengetahui apa yang kamu kerjakan'. QS. Al-Hasyr (59) : 18.

''Kamu tidak akan pernah boleh menarik simpati orang lain dengan harta benda yang kamu miliki, tetapi kamu boleh menarik simpati orang lain dengan wajah ceria (senyum) dan dengan akhlak yang baik.'' (HR Abu Yu'la dan Al-Baihaqi).

Setiap orang mempunyai bibir. Akan tetapi, tidak setiap orang boleh dan biasa untuk tersenyum. Senyum memiliki kesan yang beragam. Cuba bayangkan jika kita melihat teman yang biasanya tersenyum, tetapi kemudian senyum itu tak tampak lagi di bibirnya. Tentu kita akan bertanya-tanya apa sebabnya dia begitu.

Sementara dengan senyuman, akan membuat orang lain merasa senang, aman, tenteram, nyaman, dan damai. Senyum memang begitu dahsyat. Ada yang kerana senyuman, orang menjadi terguris hatinya. Inilah yang disebut dengan senyuman sinis. Ada pula senyuman yang membuat orang yang melihatnya menjadi mabuk kepayang hingga terjerumus ke lembah maksiat. Inilah senyuman menggoda yang ditebar para lelaki dan wanita penggoda. Senyum sejenis ini tentu akan membawa bencana kerana boleh menyebabkan orang melanggar larangan Allah SWT.

Ada juga senyum yang membuat hati kita bergetar melihatnya. Itulah senyum ketabahan dari seorang hamba yang ikhlas menerima ujian Allah SWT. Senyum ketegaran. Inilah senyuman dari orang yang tegar dalam menerima ujian, baik itu berupa bencana alam mahupun kepahitan hidup. Selain itu, ada juga senyum yang penuh dengan ketulusan. Senyum ini membuat orang yang melihatnya ikut berbahagia.

Di antara manfaat senyum adalah menambah daya tarikan. Orang yang murah senyuman kepada sesama insan akan mendapatkan pahala dari Allah SWT. Sebab, senyum yang berangkat dari ketulusan hati merupakan sedekah.

''Senyummu terhadap saudaramu adalah kebajikan.'' (HR At-Tirmidzi) .

Begitulah dahsyatnya kesan dari kuntuman sebuah senyuman yang mempunyai banyak falsafah disebaliknya.dan Rasulullah SAW menegaskan hal tersebut dalam hadisnya.

Pernah suatu ketika Rasulullah SAW berwajah masam ketika melihat seorang pemuda yang lalu dihadapannya dengan rambut yang beacak-acakan tanpa kemas. Kerana merasa diperhatikan, pemuda itu bertanya-tanya dalam hati.

Apakah gerangan yang membuat Rasulullah SAW bermuka masam padanya? Ternyata, rambutnya yang beracak-acakan itulah yang menjadi penyebab. Ketika pemuda itu kembali di depan Rasulullah SAW dengan penampilan yang lebih menarik, maka Rasulullah SAW menguntumkan senyum kepadanya. Itulah senyum Rasulullah SAW kepada umat. Lalu, sudahkah kita menjadikan senyum sebagai modal utama dalam mendakwahkan Islam di muka bumi ini?

'Sesungguhnya laki-laki dan perempuan yang muslim, laki-laki dan perempuan yang mukmin, laki-laki dan perempuan yang tetap dalam ketaatannya, laki-laki dan perempuan yang benar, laki-laki dan perempuan yang sabar, laki-laki dan perempuan yang khusyuk, laki-laki dan perempuan yang bersedekah, laki-laki dan perempuan yang berpuasa, laki-laki dan perempuan yang memelihara kehormatannya, laki-laki dan perempuan yang banyak menyebut (nama) Allah, Allah telah menyediakan untuk mereka ampunan dan pahala yang besar' QS. Al-Ahzab (33) : 35,

nice thoughts

Never cry for any relation in life
Because for the one whom you cry
Does not deserve your tears
And the one who deserves
Will never let you cry...
tree spring summer fall autumn winter snow animated gif
Treat everyone with politeness

Even those who are rude to you,
Not because they are not nice
But because you are nice...

Never search your happiness
In others
Which will make you

Feel alone,
Rather search it in yourself
You will feel happy
Even if you are left alone

positive attitude in life.
is something positive
every person.
a stopped watch is right
a day...

always looks small
we hold it in our hands.
when we learn to
realize how big and precious it is!..

Pictures from Islamic History

The Green Dome of Rowdah tur Rasool (Sallallaho Alaihe Wasallam)
Mazar Mubarak of Hazrat Yahya (John) (Peace be upon him) within the Umayyad Mosque in Damascus . Some scholars report that it is only the head of Yahya (Alaihissalam) that was found when the mosque was being refurbished during the Umayyad period. Others claim that the head of Yahya (John) Peace be upon him, is housed in the crypt below a mosque in the old city of Sebastiya near Nablus, and still others claim the head was buried at Muwakir, site near the Jordan river.
Mazar of Hazrat Nooh (Noah) in Baqa'a Valley in Lebanon . Some other scholars say that the Mazar of Hazrat Nooh can be in Jordan OR Lebanon OR Iraq. Allah knows the best.
The story of Hazrat Nooh (Noah) and the flood is found in a number of different passages in the Quran. Muslim scholars say that the Ark came to rest on Mount Judi and that Noah was buried nearby.
