my rantings!

Islam Liberal:
ketika pulang ke m'sia tempoh hari, saya perasan tentang wujudnya sindrom "Kami percaya kepada Islam Liberal." well, based on what i've seen from those, who claim to be one, Islam Liberal can be described as following:

- sembahyang fardhu bukan kewajipan yang besar..justeru, meninggalkan solat bukan lah kesalahan yang besar
- buatlah jahat mana pun, selagi tidak mensyirikkan Allah adalah dibenarkan
- pergaulan sangat bebas lelaki dan perempuan
- mereka mengaku sebagai Muslim yang moden

well, in just a glance, we could simply know that this is totally wrong..but, what really upset me is the fact that this tenet is really popular among the, it surprised me a lot..we have really been liberalized, don't we?

but, to solely blame these youngsters might be unfair fact, we really need to find root of this problem - why these groups tend to divert from the actual teaching of Islam? i guess, maybe, Islam that have been portrayed to them is nothing but a ritual religion - praying 5 times/day w/o knowing the actual reason why we have to do so, fasting in month of ramadhan only to be thirsty and hungry for one whole day, and etc..and to make even worse, Islam is seen only to uphold the Hudud Law (as is Islam has nothing to offer but to punish the people), and etc.. or maybe, i guess, these people have not seen examples of real Muslims, who are not only pious but also are very successful in their works/professions.. or maybe, i guess, the way we teach them about Islam not really right - we're so obsessed to tell them how to do prayers, instead of why should we do prayer, for example..or maybe, these people just want to set themselves free from any responsibilities of being a Muslim

thus, it's very important for parents or parents-to-be to equip themselves with necessary knowledges of Islam..also, it's equally important to teach Islam to their kids not in a conventional way, but to convince their kids that Islam is the only true path by simply providing evidences from Koran/Sunnah and then to explain the wisdom behind them..for example, i always ask myself, if Allah is the Almighthy (yes, Allah is indeed the Almighty), why should we do prayer for him? why should we praise Him if He is the Most Sacred (yes, Allah is indeed the Most Sacred) ? but, as i've read the Koran, Allah has provided the answers for all my questions in the following verses:

a) 29.5 to 29.6:

"Whoever hopes to meet Allah (let them work hard), the term appointed by Allah will then most surely come; and He is the Hearing, the Knowing."

"And whoever strives hard, he strives only for his own soul; most surely Allah is Self-sufficient, above (need of) the worlds."

*see, Allah has clearly disclaimed any needs from His creation..instead, the only reason we have to do good deeds (by following His commands) is for our own benefits. and later in this Sura, Allah has explained the reason why we need to perform prayers;

b) 29.45

"Recite that which has been revealed to you of the Book and keep up prayer; surely prayer keeps (one) away from indecency and evil, and certainly the remembrance of Allah is the greatest, and Allah knows what you do."

*ain't it beautiful? at the early Sura, Allah has clarified the needs of mankind to do good deeds, and to avoid evils..and later in the Sura, Allah mentioned that by performing Solah, we could keep ourselves from misbehaving..these verses are enough to convince me the reason to worship Allah, as the one and only God!

well, i believe there are many wisdoms in the Koran, that i'm yet to discover..just imagine, if you could provide such answers if ur kids ask u about the reasons to perform Solah..ain't it more beneficial to provide them with sound answers rather than to ask them to keep their mouths shut, and then to merely and blindly follow what has been taught to them in school..but, to be able to do this, parents should have sufficient knowledge about Islam..otherwise, if they give reasonings solely based on their logic, they might be distorting their kids from the actual teaching of Islam..

disclaimer: anyway, this is merely my opinions..i've no intention to degrade others..indeed, i'm neither a perfect Muslim..but, as i have always been told by my buddies, the dakwah is kinda hand-in-hand process, in which as you do advice others to do good, you are actually telling yourself to do the same thing..May Allah bless us ;)
