Fearing Rationality- Does Reason Drive us Away from God?

Why some Muslims fear and oppose rationality heavily? They claim that Islam isn’t compatible with rationality, because the minds of a human is limited. They further claim that the only way to be ‘safe’ is only by following their religious scholars, not by rationality. Don’t they know that Allah told that His signs are for those who give thought?

Islamic banking: Is it really Islamic?

Today, ulama mostly are of the opinion that ‘Islamic banking’ is halal, and some of the ulama say it is forbidden to use conventional banking because conventional banks are based on riba (usury). However, when we look deeper into the matter, we will find that there really isn’t any difference between the so-called islamic banking Read More

Islam Is A Way of Life, Not A Religion

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيمWith the Ism of Allah Ar-Rahman Ar-Raheem We all have heard that Islam is a complete way of life, but do we really  understand Islam as a way of life (deen) ? Or are we just practicing Islam as a religion, like all other religions on the planet? Unfortunately, many Muslims, including Read More

Quran and Hadith: Which One To Follow?

In the name of Allah, ar-Rahman ar-Raheem The Holy Quran is the highest law (7:2-3), the most perfect, infallible word of Allah without any error (4:82, 10:37). It is complete (6:115) and explains everything clearly (16:89), detailed (6:114), no falsehood in it (41:42) and guarded by Allah (15:9). It is the last divine revelation confirming the previous books. Read More

Muslims that conspired with British? Syeikh Jamaluddin al-Afhgani & Syeikh Muhammad Abduh?

Did Muhammad Abduh and Jamaluddin al-Afghani conspire with the British? There are some who say yes and there are some who say no.

Do you remember about the well-known Muslim reformist thinkers that we learnt in form 5 in Pendidikan Islam (Islamic Education) ? Yes, yes, Syeikh Jamaluddin al-Afhghani and his student Syeikh Muhammad Abduh.  They both called for Muslims to return to the Quran and to not follow Islam blindly or just nodding at every thing the ulama says without referring to the Quran. They are also well-known for their resistance towards colonization. I myself admire their way of thinking.

Why Using ‘Malay’ to protect Islam is Wrong: Islam and Malay in the Federal Constitution

When I was learning about the privileges of Malays in Malaysia, I recalled a senior friend of mine (who studied law too) talking about Malays and Islam. He said that the Federal Constitution of Malaysia protects the ‘rights’ and privileges of Malays. Since a Malay is a Muslim by law, so by protecting the rights of the Malays, the Federal Constitution is actually protecting Islam. 

Is this true?

There are other ways the government uses the Malay race to protect Islam, like making the conversion from Islam to another religion forbidden (only if he/she is a Malay), and also guaranteeing every Malays as Muslims. Well, it does protect Islam in a way, but that way is very, very wrong (and detrimental too). Here are 4 reasons why (with number 4 being the best):

Science is the New Religion? -How people follow science blindly like religion

Bismiillahirrahminirrahim أَفَرَأَيْتَ مَنِ اتَّخَذَ إِلَٰهَهُ هَوَاهُ وَأَضَلَّهُ اللَّهُ عَلَىٰ عِلْمٍ وَخَتَمَ عَلَىٰ سَمْعِهِ وَقَلْبِهِ وَجَعَلَ عَلَىٰ بَصَرِهِ غِشَاوَةً فَمَنْ يَهْدِيهِ مِنْ بَعْدِ اللَّهِ ۚ أَفَلَا تَذَكَّرُونَ“Have you seen him who takes his low desire as his god, and Allah has made him wrong in having knowledge and has set a seal upon his ear and Read More

LGBT & Extreme Feminism- Why do they exist?

Who doesn’t know about the ongoing issue on gay rights and that people are fighting about? We can see today even straight people are supporting gay rights and LGBT movements.

Yes, we all know that but the question is: How do these organisations existed in the first place, and how did they got so strong?

Human Rights VS Righteousness in Islam

The declaration of Human rights by the United Nations (UN) is sought as one of the greatest achievement in human moral and the progress of humanity since the second world war. Truth to be told however, although with the ongoing human rights, human moral and behavior is declining to its lowest.

We don’t have to go very far to see this. Liberty and democracy is one of the main pillars of the so-called human rights. In the name of liberty, same-sex marriage is legalised, not married same-sex relationship is legalised, sex without marriage (zina) is legalised, wearing tight clothes on the streets are legalised, alcohol consumption is legalised, gambling is legalised, riba is legalised.

FIFA World Cup- A Pointless Sport Event?

A bunch of guys chasing a ball in a field has become the highlight of the third quarter in 2018. Football fans all around the world are going wild just to see a bunch of guys chasing a ball in a field. Come on, the FIFA World Cup, 4 years once, who would want to miss it?

But, seriously think about it, what’s the point of spending tonnes of money for a sports event? I like football too, you know, but- look around you.  We have people suffering and dying in the embargo in Yemen,  people suffering in Palestine, refugees with malnutrition and without a place to live from Syria and Libya, famine in Africa, human trafficking in Russia, Belarus, Iran and many other parts of the world, countless of homeless people under the bridge, and all we care about is spending our money on broadcasting a football event?
