Where is our Dignity? [update!]

I feel very..

Ya Allah, please keep my soul calm and strong to face this. Oh Lord...

What do you feel when you want to speak out to prevent something but no one hears your voice and even ignores you?

What do you feel when others especially for those who don't understand what islam is and what islam teaches, but they make fun of our religion?
What do you feel if others misinterpret what has been stated in islam but for them, we can simply take it as a funny joke?
What do you feel than?
Angry? Sad? Depress?
or Nothing?
Neutral?
No idea or even no comment?

Don't you have the sensitivity?
Don't you see how islamic teaching is seen as something that we can make fun of?
Don't you realise that they are making fun of us?
Making fun of our religion and practice?
So, where is our dignity then?
Why the video just emphasizes on the action which one should do when they convert to islam?
Why they want to make fun of that action?
If we want to learn and discover the beauty of islam, it is not just by doing that action but even more than that!

islam is the religion which teaches the truth faith from the GOD
islam is the religion which is syumul (cover all the aspects of life)
islam is the religion which guides the believers to be in the right path in life


"This day have I perfected your religion for you, completed My favour upon you, and I have chosen for you Islam as you religion." (Qur'an Al-Maidah-5:3)

"If anyone desires a religion other than Islam (submission to God), never will it be accepted of him." (Qur'an Ali-Imran-3:85)

"That which you worship besides Him are only names and you and your forefathers have invented for which Allah has sent down no authority; the command belongs only to Allah: He has command that you worship Him; that is the right religion, but most men do not understand." (Qur'an Yusuf -12:40)


so,

what do you feel when people try to regard our practice as a foolish thing?
does it appropriate to be showed in the public?
does that is a part of our syllabus?

Hey you,
If from your perspective it is okay to do so,
please respect the others,
please respect other religion,
Oh, I can't totally blame on you who not understand what islam is.
but I would appreciate if you could give your respect.
Thank you.

Hey muslim,
If we are not protecting our own religion, who else then?
If we don't sensitive on our own belief and practise who else then to do so?
What if the people who don't understand islam perhaps may misunderstand the significant of the action (why Allah asked us to do so)
Think and reflect back!

If you think this incident is simple
For me personally it is not.
It IS NOT appropriate to be displayed.

Okay2.
Stop blaming on that matter.
But what my concern is,
from this,
what we can see and reflect is,
it teaches us to be more sensitive and critical towards any unexpected matter that could happen in our future
plus what if the matter is related to our own religion?
our own belief and practise?
We should be more and more sensitive right?
Maybe from this it tells us to be more aware and think fast on appropriate ways to respond and act if the matter is not APPROPRIATE to be done.
I'm not condemning to any particular person or people,
but just to make you to realise how our religion is slowly seen as something that we can make fun.
Don't you realise?
We can take this matter as a lesson.
insyaALLAH.
When we are studying abroad in UK next year (InsyaAllah)
there will be more challenging experience that we have to encounter!
How to react and respond then?

Think and reflect.
Sorry for my words.
This is the very poor thing that I can do.
By expressing my own view and perspective.
You may agree or object or even criticise mine.
Highly appreciated!
Thank you.

update (10/9/09):
I'm not so sure weather is it appropriate for me to upload the video here.(Hm..thinking..)

If we think on the other side, I think it is appropriate n IMPORTANT because you can link the message in this post with this video.
After I had 'watched' this video, this post is the answer for my reflection towards the content of the video.
WARNING!!. You may watch this but please judge with your heart.
If we are not protecting our own pride who else then?
Don't you realise, the use of media (youtube.com),can slowly influence our young generation thought
and this is what we call as 'serangan pemikiran terhadap orang islam specifically nya'
and for those who don't understand about islam, they MAY misinterpret our religion teaching.



and do remember, it is not only us watching this video, but all people around the world.

Think and reflect!
What's your opinion?

salam fieqa

I just can't understand how can most people remain to be calm and remain to be enjoyed by that situation..

I'm not going to judge anything about them, but still I can't resist from making out a lot of questions..

first of all,
don't they think that that's not all islam is all about?

second thing,
do they really think that our religion, islam is only practising things that they had shown openly in front of the public just now??
i was wondering...
why don't you talk about solat or maybe fasting thing that all of us are doing right now?

third thing,
do we really love our religion as our own religion?
if we do love our religion as our own religion, then why are we making fun of our own religion?
and why are we willing to let our beloved religion to be fooled by other people?

aren't we realize the fact that Allah, the one and the only God who we worshiped to is always watching whatever things and whatever speeches that we are making every seconds and every moment even though no lecturers are around you?

lastly,
what is our religion, islam to you?
is it just praying thing and fasting thing?
or is it indeed your way of life?

tepuk dada, tanya iman.

p/s: have you prepared the answers to be given to Him in the day of judgement at the time He asked you the purpose and the effect of making that 'simple' action??

~this is puteribonda reminding you in the case you forgot~

and one more thing..

i heard you on dat day and i responed if you notice,
just dat i have no courage to stop it

sorry
may Allah forgive me

puteribonda,

thanks for the sharing.
I'm touched.-_-
whoa.it clearly showed that u were bombarding us with so many questions here.hehe..=)
such a good attempt. ^_^
let me answer slowly ya.
this is from my point of view. U may accept n reject so.I don't mind.

**************

"just can't understand how can most people remain to be calm and remain to be enjoyed by that situation.."

>>>> this perhaps, there is a lack of sensitivity in our soul where we don't realise where the others some of the people around the world are making fun our own practise.
for them, they can simply take the thing as a joke without realising the background/ core message of that 'short scene' is all about islamic banking.hu~
"islamic banking"..
why islamic should be highlighted?
why the action should be highlighted?

hurm..

**********************

first of all,
don't they think that that's not all islam is all about?

>>> yap!
I do agree with you.
they just associate islam with bla2...
but actuly ISLAM is NOT only that!
islam is even more what we think.
COnsequently, this can make us confuse, even though the video highlighted the sense of humor in delivering the message about the practise!.hu3

************

"second thing,
do they really think that our religion, islam is only practising things that they had shown openly in front of the public just now??
i was wondering...
why don't you talk about solat or maybe fasting thing that all of us are doing right now?"

>>>
yap.
I totally agree with you.
DOn't you realise how our thinking is slowly being influenced by the media when they complicate the simple matter.huh~!

YAP!
we call talk about other matter/practise which is more crucial.where we can attract people to learn the beuty of islam.
why they have to emphasize on that thing!
I can't understand!
huh3!
but, however, do remember, does the doer of the video understand islam?

Think and reflect.

*************

"third thing,
do we really love our religion as our own religion?
if we do love our religion as our own religion, then why are we making fun of our own religion?
and why are we willing to let our beloved religion to be fooled by other people?"

>>>
yAP..of course we have to be proud of our own belief.This is our principle right?
If we are not protecting our own religion who else then?
Think and reflect!

*******************

"lastly,
what is our religion, islam to you?
is it just praying thing and fasting thing?
or is it indeed your way of life?"

>>>
absoulutely not,
islam is not just only a RELIGION but A WAY OF LIFE.
it is how the believers do practise what has been stated in the Al-Quran and SUnnah (our main guidances)
think and reflect?
do we a true muslim who practises islam,
or do we just a poor follower who is islam but only stated in the IC but not into practise?

Think and reflect.

*********************

"tepuk dada, tanya iman.

p/s: have you prepared the answers to be given to Him in the day of judgement at the time He asked you the purpose and the effect of making that 'simple' action??"

>>> yap. Have you prepared?


p/s- to cik puteribonda,
thanks for commenting.
directly and indirectly, it makes us to rethink and reflect and practise!
AYuhh!
ALLAHUAKBAR!

saiful al-ieman,

you are correct in that sense shy.
people will never learn somting if they consider the matter is not important and sensitive right?

btw,thanks for the support.

never mind shy,
this is tarbiyah from Allah in this ramdhan month.
Just take this matters as a lesson.
Hope we can be more aware to all these kind of matter, especially if the matter is related to our own religion.

insyaAllah.
May ALLAH forgive us!
aamiin!

oh dear..what were they thinking?
something so sacred that has been practiced in Islam since ages ago is being exploited and interpreted in the wrong way..

it all starts from us as muslims.
when muslims don't even understand their own religion
and look Islamic practice as weird or such a nuisance,
they'll lose their respect to their own religion.

We've heard before this

"how do you expect people to respect you if you do not respect yourself?"

the same thing goes to this case

"how do you expect people to respect your religion if you do not respect your own religion?"

isn't that right?

when we don't have respect,
we don't even mind what others would say or do to Islam,
we don't care.we won't bother a thing!
and that makes them much more brave and bold to mess up with our religion..=(

so touching sis..
at first, I don't really understand what this post is about.
I mean,its referring to something, but I don't know what it is.
but when I watched the vdeo,
i felt like killing someone..hu~(hyperbola)

k..thanks 4 the share kak!
May Allah bless you..!
keep on spreading the words of Allah..insyaAllah..
=)

salam.
pika.sudah baca entry saifulislam tentang pemikiran skeptik terhadap agama Islam?
sejak ak baca entry tu la, ak try tgk crte2 yg ade unsur2 skeptik terhadap Islam.ya.ak terfikir,kenapa sampai macam tu.
sebelum tgk video tu, dah pernah tgk video2 lain yang ada menyelitkan unsur2 macam tu. seperti mahu mempersendakan agama. agama jadi bahan ketawa.
mungkin kerana Ilmu didada masih kurang.ilmu tentang agama..

puteribonda at: September 11, 2009 at 7:26 PM said...

yeah,
pemikiran skeptik mungkin term yg baik ntok jelaskn sal sumer nie

...zUlaIkHA... at: September 12, 2009 at 6:39 AM said...

i juz don't get it for the video...

sometimes they seem to be very desperate in order to attract people for their commercial..like there's no other better excellent idea for that commercial or perhaps their graphic designers are sort of troublesome people....

Islam should be uphold by now but then people entitled 'muslim' themselves giv a bad perception towards Islam through their acts n behaviours.

It's truly sad that they make toying with Islam.They juz don't get it...how true Islam is..the beauty of Islam...let's pray for us and for them...may Allay will enlight us with His an-nur and guidance..

Islam now and then,here and there..

~nazierah~,

thanks for commmenting sis.
sorry for replying late becoz i'm not in the mood to reply..hehe.
perhaps, it would affect on how I would reply all the comments in my blog..=p

yap!
I do agree with you.
this video shows on how our religion teaching is misinterpreted in a wrong way.iskh3

yap!
in order to gain respect from others, it is how we do respect others first.
and the lessons for this case,
I do hope, there are more n more people to have the sensitivity especially if the matter is related to our own RELIGION.
I hope so,..aamiin.

oh ya..never mind..
sharing is our responsibility..
at first, I wish I don't want to post the video because it may cause controversy,perhaps..
but I do feel, it would better and effective if I post the video where the readers can relate the content of post with the video posted..

think and reflect!

insyaALLAH.
the same goes to you..
keep spreading the words from ALLAH..
priotize the priority..=)
