Lelaki Ini

Thursday, May 29, 2008


Anuar Zain sings one of a beautiful song i ever heard, "Lelaki Ini". The music arrangement is perfect, the lyric suits the melody well, making me want to hear it more and more.

The man in the lyric is potrayed to be so obsessed with his beloved one. He keeps stressing that he is the man, going crazy bout his girl, whom his loyalty rests, always loving his girl and only her he praises - the queen of his heart.

I wonder does this kind of love exist? Will a man be like this to someone he loves, forever? Will he be persistent in loving the only woman in his life? Would he dare to risk himself, facing the possibility of being betrayed after so much effort he puts in loving his girl?

Someone used to tell me, that this song sounds gay, since the singer is a guy and too many "lelaki ini" being repeated. Well, I must say that the girl saying this is either joking with me or she is imbecilic. I must differ from that insensible view and I'm of opinion that this song is well crafted, well sung and does hit my very conscious every time i listen to it.

This song is for man who honors and cherishes love,expressing his determination of being loyal to the one he loves. Perhaps it also gives hope to woman, who wishes to meet a loyal and persistent lover, who will indulge himself in loving his girl for perpetual...

May True Love Emerge and Embrace The World.

Freedom of Religion, Conversion & Strangers

Saturday, May 10, 2008


Our Federal Constitution provides Freedom of Religion as embodied in Article 11. Thus, we hear voices from some corners which want the process of leaving Islam to be made easier-since it is believed that people are free to choose their own religion.

Those who asking for these are not Muslim, or they may be Muslim, but ignorant one. Let me stress this - the law says that you are free to profess any religion, but the law doesn't permit you to alter the religion.

Once you are Muslim, there are rules to be followed, same like when you enter a country, there are laws to be observed. Breach the laws, and there shall be consequence (Ubi culpa est, ibi poena subesse debet- Where the crime is committed, there ought punishment to be undergone). Before professing other religion, please deal with the one which you had previously chosen to submit to.

You are free to be Muslim, no compulsion, but thinks wisely before being a Muslim as renouncing Islam might not be a choice later on. The Prophet once met a person who wish to be a Muslim and he was asking for 3 days to think and The Prophet gave 3 months to him. It shows that no compulsion and no hurry in being a Muslim. After all Hidayah is from Allah, even the Prophet couldn't bring his beloved uncle to Islam.

But I observed that some people, shielding themselves with the universal principle of human rights try to meddle with the issue of apostasy. They urge that conversion should be allowed and be made easier, as people are free to profess any religion of their choice.

In Islam, those who are leaving the religion is an apostate. Apostasy is a great sin and a punishable offence in Islam. That is a rule, which every Muslim believes to be an integral part of the religion.

Now what I find disturbing is that people who urge that conversion should be allowed and more gruesome when they want the process to be made easier, they are not talking about personal right, they are urging for changing in a system of a religion.

Lets take a look at the special position of Islam in the Federal Constitution. Yang Dipertuan Agong is empowered to enact any law in the state of emergency (darurat) EXCEPT things which concern the religion of Islam -article 150 (6A) of Federal Constitution.Impliedly it shows that Islam has a very special position in the supreme law of the land. Even YDPA cant mess with Islam in the state of emergency, what more a layman, a non-believer who is a stranger to Islam or the one who choose to be ignorant of his own religion.

The non believers who are asking for changes as regards to the issue of conversion, I take them as strangers, who is coming to my house and try to show me how to live in my own house. Muslims who are in the same camp with those people, i rather call them ignorant believers and may Allah forgive them for their ignorance (ignorantia facti excusat- ignorance of fact is an excuse).

As I can't ask a Hindu or Buddhist to change his rituals, I expect the same from non Muslim to respect the rule we have in Islam. This mutual respect should be observed to maintain harmonious relationship in a multi racial society. [Unto you, your religion and unto me, my religion-Al kafirun:6]

Tan Sri Speaker

Monday, May 5, 2008


Speaker of Dewan Rakyat, Tan Sri Pandikar Amin Mulia has shown his credibility in his early days as the speaker of the honorable Dewan.

On the first day, he seems to be tested by thunderous peculiar behaviors of the MPs. Today (5th May 08), he made an announcement that he will not entertain anyone raising Point of Order, unless it is meant to accelerate the proceeding of the honorable Dewan.

Responding to the decision, a veteran Mp and a renown lawyer, Karpal Singh try to show off by questioning the legality of such decision, as it impedes MPs from raising Point of Order (that can be expected from a lawyer).

The Answer given by the Tan Sri Speaker should hit the very conscience of Karpal. He said that Point of Order shouldn't be used to cover up mischieves done by the MPs. He then cite a legal maxim "He who seeks equity must do equity"- an answer I wouldn't expect from a politician, which serves Karpal right.haha
