You & I Are Descendants of Adam!!

Dear Umno, I was not born to be discriminated against and marginalized by you! For I am a descendant of Adam and Eve too...
Allah created Adam and Eve. Remember, Allah created them and therefore, you and I are descendants of Adam and Eve. Adam is the first Prophet in Islamic faith who had the closest relationships with Allah. Adam had personally met Allah and had direct conversation with Allah, after he sinned against Allah by eating the forbidden fruit, he repented and Allah forgave him. Adam and his wife Eve had children on earth, and so far their great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great grandchildren have subdued the whole earth.

Now, the fact of the matter and the matter of the fact is that Allah allows different skin colors, languages to be developed among Adam's descendants (remember this is a fact that Allah allows it to happen or Allah wants it to happen). Allah is so great to the extent that He has granted Adam's descendants the freedom and liberty to either believe in Him or other idols. So we have people who are whole-hearted believers of Allah, and they are known as true-Muslims; and we have people who claim they are Muslims but they make MONEY & SEX their idols, they are known as fake Muslims. And most unfortunately, the majority of the descendants of Adam don't have the right opportunity to know and accept Allah. Why "no right opportunity" for them to know and accept Allah?? You need me to tell you why?! Because there are too many fake Muslims. Allah hates Fake Muslims more than those who don't have the right opportunity to know and accept Him.

Allah wants ALL the descendants of Adam to come back to acknowledge and accept Him as the creator of the whole universe and Adam, who is in heaven now, longs to see all his descendants to live harmoniously and peacefully on earth (would you want your grandchildren to fight among themselves?).

Imagine all Muslims in Malaysia can talk, think and behave like Dr. Bakri Musa, Dr. Azly Rahman, Zaid Ibrahim, Raja Petra Kamarudin, Syed Husin Ali, Tunku Abdul Aziz, Mohammad Nizar Jamaludin, Khalid Samad, Dr. Zulkifly and many others...I can tell you many Adam's descendants who don't have the right opportunity to know and accept Allah will want to know more about Allah and will one day come back to Allah to accept His mercy and love.

Unfortunately, we have a group of gangsters who like to wield Keris and always brainwash Muslims into believing that:
1. Even though we believe in Allah, we are still weak so we need APs, Quotas and Special Privileges;
(It is an insult!!!! For Quran has taught us that those who whole-heartedly believe in Him will be strengthend and have peace and wisdom). How can we live a paradox that we believe in Almighty Allah and yet we are weak intellectually, spiritually, economically, etc?? No, Quran says it very clearly-those who heart is with Allah shall have wisdom and peace. Amin.

SO TRUE MUSLIMS are peace-loving, spirtually-strong and have wisdom. Fake Muslims are violent, arrogant, spiritually-weak and are stupid. Remember, Fake Muslims are spiritually-weak so...
1. they can't use internet (for they will surf porn websites)
2. they can't enter convenient stores like 7-11 (for they will be trembling at the sight of beers)
3. they can't see pretty and sexywomen (for erection and uncontrollable ejaculation are immediate).
4. they can't attend "Michael Learn to Rock" concert (for their minds will be corrupted by a concert).
5. they can't allow pubs or discoteques (for they can't overcome the temptation to go in and see pretty girls and consume liquor).
6. they can't allow other religious books to be printed in certain language (for if they read it, their mind will get spining).
7. they can't allow casino (for they will be tempted to gambling).

Allah is the creator of whole universe, He is Almighty and those who believe in Him is a conqueror, isn't it what Quran has taught us??

Allah purposely planted a tree in paradise and admonised Adam and Eve not to eat the fruit of the tree, why? Allah wanted them to learn how to conquer the temptation. Even though they failed but they repented from this mistake (sin), Allah still accepted and forgave them.

So Allah is Omnipotent and Omnipresent, He knows you will fall throughout your spiritual journey, but Allah is most compassionate and merciful, He is ready to forgive and forget. TRUE MUSLIMS may fall but they have a heart of repentance. Anwar Ibrahim is one of them. True Muslims are willing to admit mistakes and courageous to take up responsibility, Tengku Razaleigh is one of the good examples.



Fake Muslims are just simply "fake people", they always tell you...
1. they never sin (even Adam & Even met Allah and they sinned against Allah).
2. they are holy (once you tell people you're holy, you've lost your holiness).
3. they are against corruption (but they buy votes to get elected).
4. they are pround and arrogant (Allah ONLY give grace to the humble)

As mentioned above, Fake Muslims are so weak to the extent that they resort to corrupt practices like buying votes to get elected in a political party which claims to defend Islam!! Isn't it ridiculous that Fake Muslims always challenge TRUE MUSLIMS to defend Islam? Fake Muslims talk about defending Islam all the times.
I am thinking what Adam could be thinking in heaven right now...Most of his descendants have not known and accepted his creator-Allah. Why?

I also carry the blood of Adam and my forefather was created by Allah, but I am confused!...
Maybe I am UMNO=Ur Mind Not Okay!!!!
Remember, those who believe in Allah will have a sound mind, unless you're UMNO...

Allah love us and He wants to forgive us!

Those who insist on harsh punishment being meted on a girl who drank liqour in the state of Pahang have failed to understand the heart of Allah. This girl has apologized, repented and suffered from the pain of humiliation and embarassment, what else would you want to inflict on her? My fasting experience with fellow Muslim friends in this month of Ramadan has given me a better "heart of compassion".

Please read the article below, which I wrote last Ramandan.
In this Holy month of Ramadan, I can’t help but to delve into the true meaning of fasting and to gain an insight into Allah’s instruction for His people to attain piety. Islam as a great faith in the world has greatly impacted the lives of billions. As a non-Muslim in Malaysia who has voluntarily chosen to fast with Muslims in Ramadan, I have come to an understanding that the effect of physical starvation will never outweigh spiritual strength/renewal obtained through fasting. Naturally or supernaturally, physical starvation or hunger will create a heart of compassion in us and make us empathise with the sufferings of others. Ramadan is also a month for all the Muslims to do soul-searching and attain higher spiritual level so as to having a sound mind to distinguish right from wrong – also to receive revelation from Allah.
Let’s look at what Quran says about fasting month of Ramadan:
"Ramadan is the (month) in which Qur'an was sent down, as a guide to mankind, and a clear guidance and judgement (so that mankind will distinguish right from wrong). Whoever among you witnesses the month of Ramadan should fast through it. But whoever is sick or on a journey, the prescribed period (missed should be made up) by days later. Allah wants ease for you and He does not want to put you into difficulties. (He wants you) to complete the prescribed period and to glorify Him in that He has guided you; and perchance ye shall be grateful" Q(2:185).
"O ye who believe, fasting is prescribed for you as it was prescribed for people before you so that you will (learn how to attain) piety" (Q2:183)
Since Ramadan is the (month) in which Quran was sent down, as a guide to mankind, I have chosen to read the Quran in this Ramadan as part of my spiritual odyssey to seek the Omnipotent, Omniscient and Omnipresent Mighty Creator of the whole universe, to acquire basic understanding of Islam and to examine whether the non-Muslim world has wrongly accused Islamic faith and Muslims.As a Malaysian of 33 years old, I am so ashamed to admit that I just learned the meaning of this word “Islam”, in fact Islam is derived from the Arabic root "Salema": peace, purity, submission and obedience. In the religious sense, Islam means submission to the will of Allah and the peace of Allah.
Part of my reading of Quran has led me to the knowledge of Allah’s creation of the whole universe. I personally feel that it takes more faith to believe in the Theory of Evolution or Darwinism as Nothing is Nothing, how can Nothing becomes Something? Everything must have a beginning, and with every beginning there comes a “beginner”. So I acknowledge it is Allah who created the whole universe or Allah could have ignited the big bang to set the whole universe in order and bring forth life. So as a non-Muslim, I share a common point with Muslims that it is Allah who created the universe.
What is more intriguing to me is that Allah is a Mighty Creator who gives mankind the freedom to choose what they want to do; in modern terms, it is a respect of human rights. Allah created Adam and Eve as the first couple of Homo sapiens, and Adam went on to become the first Prophet of Islam. So let’s follow the story about what happened to this wonderful couple.
According to Quran, Allah commanded Adam to dwell in Paradise: "O Adam! Dwell you and your wife in the Paradise and eat both of you freely with pleasure and delight of things therein as wherever you will, but come not near this tree or you both will be of the Zalimeen (wrong doers).(2:35)Adam and eve were admitted to Paradise and there they lived the dream of all human beings. Allah permitted them to approach and enjoy everything except one tree that might have been the Tree of Pain or the Tree of Knowledge, some scholars call it Evil Tree. Allah said to Adam, "But come not near this tree or you both will be of the wrong doers." (2:35)
Adam was however a human being. Iblis (satan/devil) summoned all the envy within him and took advantage of Adam's humanity to exploit him. He started to whisper to him day after day, coaxing him: "Shall I guide you to the Tree of Immortality and the Eternal Kingdom?" He said to them: "Your Lord did not forbid you this tree save you should become angels or become of the immortals." He (Satan) swore by Allah to them both saying: "Verily I am one of the sincere well wishers for you both." (7:20-21)Adam and Eve understood that they were forbidden by Allah to eat the fruit of that tree. But why Allah wanted to plant a tree in the Paradise?1). Since Allah is Omniscient, Allah could have known beforehand that Adam and Eve would succumb to temption and therefore the removal of this evil tree must be made necessary, lest Adam and Eve fall into temptation,2. Since Allah is Omnipresent, when Adam and Eve were about to approach the tree, Allah could appear in front of them and cautioned them against the serious consequences or Allah could stop the devil from talking to them, how could Allah leave them in the lurch?
Why Allah allowed this mishap to happen to Adam and Eve, whom Allah had created to dwell in the Paradise? And why satan could enter or appear in Paradise?The obvious answers to the questions above is “FREE WILL”- that Allah allowed the existence of this evil tree in Paradise so Adam and Eve could learn how to conquer temptation and they could be completely at ease in the face of temptation as they had the Peace of Allah and the Peace with Allah. Allah wanted them to be cheerful and happy in the Paradise and the Peace of Allah would empower them to sail through the temptation. Allah won’t want Adam and Eve to shout and yell and hold placards protesting against the evil tree. The presence of satan in Paradise is truly symbolic of the possible blemishes/imperfection in a perfect world.Allah is Omnipotent and the Creator of the whole universe, Allah could have made Adam and Eve like a robot without freedom to choose what they want to do, and by a click from Allah, Adam and Eve could be completely destroyed. But Allah breathed a breath of freedom into Adam’s life, a freedom that allowed Adam to even defy the command of Allah!The end:Adam and Eve left Paradise and descended upon the earth. Adam was sad and Eve was crying. Allah accepted their repentance because it was sincere and Allah told them that the earth would be their realm and origin where they would live and die and whence they would come on the Day of Judgment.
As I meditated on these Quranic verses, I can’t help but come to a deeper respect and appreciation for Allah’s magnanimity, loving-kindness and patience towards mankind, I couldn’t imagine how hard Adam and Eve had hurt Allah, but I know Allah is Merciful! Allah greatness is reflected through His meekness, gentleness, mercifulness, acceptance and forgiveness.Dear Muslim friends, from Adam and Eve incident we can figure out that “innocence is not a virtue, but virtue is innocence tested”; only if Adam and Eve had overcome the temptation, could they be really counted as innocent. Allah wants His people to overcome temptation and be at peace with Him. Though Adam and Eve had failed to heed His command, Allah accepted their sincere repentance. Allah wants us to get up from where we’ve fallen down and move on with our life!If Allah has allowed the Evil Tree and satan to appear in Paradise, who are we to close down discotheque and casino, ban pageant contest, ban bikini, ban alcohol, ban concert, etc in Malaysia? How can we justify a rapist sexual aggression against a scantily dressed girl? Can we lock up all the Muslim children in a remote village without internet access, TV and DVD player so when they grow up they won’t see the evil, hear the evil and talk the evil? No, we can never do that to our children! Living in seclusion is not the way Allah had prepared for Adam and Eve.Allah never instructed Adam and Eve to burn down or bomb the Evil Tree as some religious bigots had done in our neighbouring countries. Instead, Allah said to them, “Enjoy your life here in Paradise and keep a distance from the evil tree and don’t eat the fruits.” After they failed to follow the command of Allah, Allah took the initiative to look for them and the sincere repentance of Adam and Eve moved the heart of Allah –The real problem with our society today is not that our corrupt Muslim politicians have eaten the forbidden fruits, but it is that they don’t have a heart of repentance at all after eating the forbidden fruits, and the forbidden fruits seem to taste sweeter and sweeter to them, it is a case of never “enough”.
Allah wants Muslims to be spiritual, NOT religious. Allah doesn’t want His people to over-emphasize on His Divinity and yet completely neglect His Humanity.
Allah wants Muslims to acknowledge the fact that He allows the world to become what it is today, to respect His authority that He has created different races with different cultures and different languages, if the Almighty Allah won’t want you to live in a multiracial environment, He would have created a world of the Muslims, by the Muslims and for the Muslims. Allah is Omnipotent, by one click He can easily move all the non-Muslims to the moon and achieve the goal of complete segregation between Muslims and non-Muslims, but Allah is Merciful and He has His ultimate purpose which both Muslims and non-Muslims may not be able to comprehend for the time being.Since Allah has created mankind with different colors like black, yellow, white, orange, beige, etc, you and I have to accept it with a cheerful heart; racism has no room in our society as Islam forbids racism!
Ramadan is a significant month for all Muslims around the world, may all Muslims, including Jihadists, experience the Mercy of Allah in this festive season. Muslims will never “know” Allah without really “experiencing” the mercifulness of Allah.
May the physical fasting bring for more spiritual hunger for our Muslim politicians to fight for social injustices and the oppressed.
May the sincere repentance of Adam and Eve be seen in all of our Muslim politicians, who have secretly eaten the forbidden fruits.
May all the Muslims in Malaysia open up their hearts to embrace multiculturalism and diversity as Allah has permitted it to happen in Malaysia.
May all the Muslims in Malaysia be able to distinguish right from wrong in this fasting month of Ramadan to discard all the bad leaders so righteousness and justice can be re-installed in our country.
May Islam-“peace and purity” saturates into every corner of our society.
May Allah protect our country, bless our Sultans, King and all Muslim politicians!
Last but not least, I would like to wish all Muslim friends in Malaysia Happy Hari Raya.

The word Allah in the Arabic language means God, or more accurately, The One and Only Eternal God, Creator of the Universe, Lord of all lords, King of all kings, Most Compassionate, Most Merciful.
