Conversation with Douglas

Assalamu 'Alaikum,
Conversation with Douglas
Dear Douglas,
                     Thank you for a thought provoking piece. I concur with the sentiments of your thoughts and go further to say it should be a year of reflection and understanding of the situation humans find themselves in. Our problem began many centuries ago when the West begun the sacking of religion from life and creating the new dogma called Secularism. Shame on us for never taking the time to reflect on what happened, its consequences and how to remedy the situation. All the knowledge borne of that era treated religion as a nuisance, a drug and an irrelevance to life. None considered the difference between religion and the practitioners of religion. Many failed to see, and threw out the baby with the bath water. And double shame for the Muslims who embraced the slumber and floated blissfully lost with the rest of mankind. The word of God so religiously brought by the love of a Prophet which prises the secrets of the universe piece by piece, layer by layer was rarely valued or referred to, to solve the problems of mankind. The words of men became more valuable than the word of God. Can the word of man match the following findings by the word of God? :

Assalamu 'Alaikum,


It’s wonderful to believe what is easy and natural to believe. Life is so much easier. The rain falls as convectional in the late afternoon as the sun’s heat in the morning absorbed the earth moisture and turned it into clouds which were later naturally seeded by uprising particles turning it into rain. With the recent change in weather Malaysia seems to have winter. As we stopped at the peak of the East West highway on the way to Kelantan today the car thermometer said it was 21C outside which is pretty cold for an equatorial country. If one exposed ourselves to nature by walking in the rain or not properly covered up against the elements the virus in the air will invade our body and make us sick. These are natural causes and effect which we have understood from time immemorial. Conditioned by the truth of nature we unconsciously extend our beliefs to situations which are man-made. The naiveté of men and innocence of humans are preyed on by certain humans who understand such weaknesses of humanity.

IAEA Exposed as Israeli Spy Front

AEA Exposed as Israeli Spy Front


IAEA Cries ‘Wolf’ Over Iran Nukes

By Gordon Duff,  Senior Editor

This week, the media, all of it, traced stories about Iran’s nuclear weapons program to its real source. 
The IAEA, which has been unable to locate the vast Dimona nuclear facility in Israel or even begin to ask questions about Israel’s illegal nuclear arsenal, has put together a “rigged” report built of rumors and spin. 
The IAEA (International Atomic Energy Agency), a “quasi-official” group is, in fact, an Israeli intelligence organization, long infiltrated, long engulfed, long ago a force for propaganda and, primarily, an organization tasked with helping Israel “hide” its nuclear arsenal “in plain sight” while fabricating evidence.
To make it more plain, the IAEA is, in fact, a clandestine intelligence organization tasked by Israel to bring about a conflict between the United States and certain European powers and Iran.
It is a conflict that may eventually involve Russia, China, a conflict that is intended to manipulate fuel markets, crash currencies, sell arms and do everything but make the world more secure.

And who is a pariah nation?

Assalamu 'Alaikum,
                             Another story to discredit a Muslim nation with Nuclear capability. The real Pariah is a so called super power whose supreme leader have to bow to the whims and fancy of Israel because the super power's crazy election system requires chunks of money which supporters of Israel have in abundance. A system where the best leader is the most learned is considered mediaval. Fine, so we have a system where the rich rules and the rich in our present day are Zionists.

                       The pariah nation is a nation so deep in debt if it is a company its position is -USD65 trillion negative shareholders funds. A pariah nation is a nation who can no longer sell its country's bond's to refinance it's international debts. When other countries do not take up its bonds its Federal Reserve simply printed more paper currency for the pariah nation's government to buy its own debt and then declare to the world its bond is two times oversubscribed!

The Truth about Money

Assalamu ‘Alaikum

The Truth about Money

In 1982 the fresh graduate’s salary is RM1,200, his cheapest new car is RM14,000 and a house will cost RM60,000. Today a fresh graduate earns just RM1000 more at RM2200 but the cheapest new car is RM40,000 and a new house is RM300,000. This has little to do with increasing steel and building materials prices but more to do with the way nations create money which is not really explained to the populace. Happy to get his job the fresh graduate is informed he will be paid RM2200 per month. For the moment we will not even think about the fresh school leaver who earns a wage of RM1000 per month. Now the graduate employee believes one year from now he can buy the same number of goods with his salary as he can today. Nobody informs him the truth about money and he believes that money is just paper currency and coins and that somehow governments will always ensure the nation’s total amount of money will remain unchanged.

Why do ordinary Americans have to suffer?

GET UPDATES FROM Sharmine Narwani
If Netanyahu Lies, Why Do We Keep Listening?
For Middle East watchers, the revelation that a major head of state called Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu a "liar" is, well, not exactly news. French president Nicholas Sarkozy needs to get in line behind the many other politicians who have thrown up their arms over Netanyahu's unusual - even for politics - propensity for duplicity.
Former Clinton White House Spokesman Joe Lockhart, in his book "The Truth About Camp David" calls the Israeli prime minister, "one of the most obnoxious individuals you're going to come into - just a liar and a cheat. He could open his mouth and you could have no confidence that anything that came out of it was the truth."
The latest brouhaha over Netanyahu's character emerged at the G-20 meeting in Cannes last week, when reporters unintentionally caught three minutes of candid conversation between Sarkozy and US President Barack Obama. Here is the conversation according to the New York Times:
"I cannot stand him," Mr. Sarkozy was quoted as saying. "He is a liar." Mr. Obama is reported to have replied, "You're fed up with him, but I have to deal with him every day!"

Dear Melissa

Assalamu 'Alaikum,

Dear Melissa,

I am so glad you found my blog. By the time you read this I am probably long gone. I wish I was there when your mum gave birth to you but it was not to be as God had other plans. The reason I am writing to you is so you know a little about your granddad and most of all I did my best to protect you. Honestly I did. I saw what was coming for you and your generation I raised the alarm bells everywhere I went but Melissa, I am so sorry nobody heard me. I was not a leader of a country, a world famous author nor any kind of famous person. I was an ordinary Grandad who thought about a lot of things and mostly I fear what I foresaw will happen to you. I was mostly a finance guy and I saw the ravages of finance that is going to destroy the life of my grand daughter.

His Majesty on enforcing Islamic law

"WHO ARE WE, in the presence of Allah (SWT), to say 'no or wait'; considering that (Islamic) law was not only formulated, but has been stated in Al-Quran and Al-Hadiths for more than 1,400 years."

This was the message in the titah of His Majesty the Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam who yesterday reiterated calls for Brunei to implement Islamic law, particularly through the establishment of an Islamic Criminal Act.

All the King's horses and all the King's men couldn't put Humpty Dumpty back together again


The Coming Derivatives Crisis That Could Destroy the Entire Global Financial System

Most people have no idea that Wall Street has become a gigantic financial casino. 
The big Wall Street banks are making tens of billions of dollars a year in the derivatives market, and nobody in the financial community wants the party to end. The word "derivatives" sounds complicated and technical, but understanding them is really not that hard.
A derivative is essentially a fancy way of saying that a bet has been made. Originally, these bets were designed to hedge risk, but today the derivatives market has mushroomed into a mountain of speculation unlike anything the world has ever seen before. Estimates of the notional value of the worldwide derivatives market go from $600 trillion all the way up to $1.5 quadrillion. Keep in mind that the GDP of the entire world is only somewhere in the neighborhood of $65 trillion.
The danger to the global financial system posed by derivatives is so great that Warren Buffet once called them "financial weapons of mass destruction". For now, the financial powers that be are trying to keep the casino rolling, but it is inevitable that at some point this entire mess is going to come crashing down. When it does, we are going to be facing a derivatives crisis that really could destroy the entire global financial system.

Date: Thu, 20 Oct 2011 15:41:53 +0000

Hutang semasa negara ialah RM437 billion pada 30 Jun 2011 di mana RM16 billion adalah hutang luar negara. Ini mewakili 51% daripada KDNK. Untuk perspektif bandingan potensi masalah hutang negara,  hutang negara Greece adalah 110% daripada KDNK, sementara negara-negara "PIG" - Portugal, Ireland dan Sepanyol menghampiri 70% daripada KDNK. Oleh itu, kita tidak jauh dari segi masalah yang sama pada masa akan datang. Jika tidak dibendung warisan hutang ini akan diserahkan kepada anak-anak dan cucu kita untuk ditanggung. Hutang luar negara kita masih agak kecil, jadi jika kita mendengar pemimpin-pemimpin kita memuji-muji pengeluaran Penerbitan Sukuk Sovereign baru, iaitu meminjam dari luar Negara, janganlah menggalakkan mereka. Ditakuti kita ikut ke jalan Negara Pakistan yang terpaksa meminjam  wang asing untuk membayar gaji kakitangan Kerajaan.

        Current debt is RM437 billion as at 30 June 2011 of which RM16 billion is foreign debt. This represents 51% of GDP. As a perspective of the potential problem Greece national debt is 110% of GDP whilst the PIG countries Portugal, Ireland and Spain approaches 70% of GDP. We are therefore not far of in terms of future trouble. If not checked this legacy of debt will be passed to our children and grandchildren to bear. Our foreign debt is still relatively small so if you hear of our leaders wax lyrical on new Sovereign Sukuk Issuance please do not encourage them further lest we go down the road of Pakistan who have to borrow foreign to pay govt servants salaries.

These signs were everywhere in this beautiful country.

“They wanted almost two thirds of the country when their population was only less than 10%,” said Naushad. “But why?” I countered. “He didn’t want it to end, he was having such a good time with all the money coming in from sympathisers throughout the world. Truth is, he was in a dead end, he couldn’t end the war even if he wanted to, he was in such a fix,” Naushad described the options of the last rebel leader to succumbed in the country’s 30 year debilitating civil war. A thought running through my mind now is that the shape a country is in is inextricable from the leaders the people chose.

A speech by a man the secretly controlled world media demonised

The full text of Ahmedinejad's speech at the United Nations (as per UN Report)

Mr. President,
Ladies and Gentlemen

I am grateful to the Almighty Allah who granted me, once more, the opportunity to appear before this world assembly. I have the pleasure to express my sincere thanks to H.E. Joseph Deiss, president of the sixty-fifth session for his tremendous efforts during his tenure. I also would like to congratulate H.E Nassir Abdulaziz AI-Nasser on his election as the president of sixty-sixth session of the General Assembly and wish him all success.

Let me seize the moment to pay tribute to all those who lost their lives in the past year, particularly to the victims of the tragic famine in Somalia and the devastating flood in Pakistan and especially the earthquake and the ensuing explosions in the nuclear power plant in Japan. I urge everyone to intensify their assistance and aid to the affected populations in these countries.

Over the past years, I spoke about different global issues, and the need to introduce fundamental changes in the current international order.

A Statement from Anwar Ibrahim


My name is Anwar bin Ibrahim. I am the leader of the Opposition in Parliament. In the 1990s, I was the Finance Minister and Deputy Prime Minister until September 1998 when then Prime Minister Dato’ Seri Dr Mahathir bin Mohamad sacked me after I had refused to resign. He had told me to resign or face dire consequences including criminal prosecution for alleged sexual and corruption offences. I refused and all hell broke loose. My unceremonious and grossly unjust dismissal simultaneously orchestrated with a trial by media under Mahathir’s complete control triggered mass and widespread demonstrations throughout the country and launched the movement for change and reform known in our history as the Reformasi era.

After a series of show trials during which every rule in the book on evidence and criminal procedure was violated with impunity at the hands of the prosecution and the courts, I was convicted and sentenced to a total of 15 years.

Ringgit sukuk sales head for record as Gulf taps market

Assalamu 'Alaikum,
                                 Whilst government use of Islamic instruments is always good for the growth of Islamic finance we need to keep a close watch on total foreign borrowings so that it won't go out of hand. That's the danger about debt, its unforgiving. Pakistan played with fire a long time ago and now borrows foreign funds to pay their civil servants salaries. In 1968 Ecuador took a billion dollar loan they dont need and today 50% of annual budget revenue is to pay World bank interest. Its always best not to borrow unless you really have to. If you have to, let it be for clear cut foreign revenue earnings project which is self redeeming in terms of repayment. To borrow for grandiose domestic project is always a gamble.

Assalamu 'Alaikum

Today I read a letter which touched my soul

To those of my generation mollycuddled into a safe life by circumstances will never understand the desperation of a graduate without a job. In our times a graduation is a ticket to a comfortable and safe life. The idea of a graduate not getting a job is beyond our comprehension. This is what we have governments for, to think far into the future to avoid such pitfalls. In 1980s to anticipate that in 2011 there will be thousands of young graduates without a job is the reason we placed these people in government. This is the trust we placed in them so that we can go on with our daily lives; happy with the thought we have appointed and paid these people to think about our children’s future. We certainly did not elect them to plunder the country to enrich the selected few.

America in Decline by Noam Chomsky - A Review by a Malaysian Muslim

America in Decline by Noam Chomsky - A Review by a Malaysian Muslim

Corporate power’s ascendancy over politics and society – by now mostly financial – has reached the point that both political organizations, which at this stage barely resemble traditional parties, are far to the right of the population on the major issues under debate.
For the public, the primary domestic concern is unemployment. Under current circumstances, that crisis can be overcome only by a significant government stimulus, well beyond the recent one, which barely matched decline in state and local spending – though even that limited initiative probably saved millions of jobs.
For financial institutions the primary concern is the deficit. Therefore, only the deficit is under discussion. A large majority of the population favor addressing the deficit by taxing the very rich (72 percent, 27 percent opposed), reports a Washington Post-ABC News poll. Cutting health programs is opposed by overwhelming majorities (69 percent Medicaid, 78 percent Medicare). The likely outcome is therefore the opposite.
The Program on International Policy Attitudes surveyed how the public would eliminate the deficit. PIPA director Steven Kull writes, “Clearly both the administration and the Republican-led House (of Representatives) are out of step with the public’s values and priorities in regard to the budget.”
The survey illustrates the deep divide: “The biggest difference in spending is that the public favored deep cuts in defense spending, while the administration and the House propose modest increases. The public also favored more spending on job training, education and pollution control than did either the administration or the House.”
The final “compromise” – more accurately, capitulation to the far right – is the opposite throughout, and is almost certain to lead to slower growth and long-term harm to all but the rich and the corporations, which are enjoying record profits."

They are talking about America here, right? :)

"Two major elements were financialization (the shift of investor preference from industrial production to so-called FIRE: finance, insurance, real estate) and the offshoring of production. The ideological triumph of “free market doctrines,” highly selective as always, administered further blows, as they were translated into deregulation, rules of corporate governance linking huge CEO rewards to short-term profit, and other such policy decisions.
The resulting concentration of wealth yielded greater political power, accelerating a vicious cycle that has led to extraordinary wealth for a fraction of 1 percent of the population, mainly CEOs of major corporations, hedge fund managers and the like, while for the large majority real incomes have virtually stagnated."

Implementation of Islamic Economics would put this right.

America in Decline

America in Decline
Friday 5 August 2011
by: Noam Chomsky, Truthout | Op-Ed

“It is a common theme” that the United States, which “only a few years ago was hailed to stride the world as a colossus with unparalleled power and unmatched appeal is in decline, ominously facing the prospect of its final decay,” Giacomo Chiozza writes in the current Political Science Quarterly.
The theme is indeed widely believed. And with some reason, though a number of qualifications are in order. To start with, the decline has proceeded since the high point of U.S. power after World War II, and the remarkable triumphalism of the post-Gulf War '90s was mostly self-delusion.
Another common theme, at least among those who are not willfully blind, is that American decline is in no small measure self-inflicted. The comic opera in Washington this summer, which disgusts the country and bewilders the world, may have no analogue in the annals of parliamentary democracy.
The spectacle is even coming to frighten the sponsors of the charade. Corporate power is now concerned that the extremists they helped put in office may in fact bring down the edifice on which their own wealth and privilege relies, the powerful nanny state that caters to their interests.
Corporate power’s ascendancy over politics and society – by now mostly financial – has reached the point that both political organizations, which at this stage barely resemble traditional parties, are far to the right of the population on the major issues under debate.

Al Quran & Science

Al Quran & Science

(5 Ramadhan 1432 Hijrah) 5/8/11

Honey Bees
The worker bees, those who gather pollen and make the honey, are actually all females. The male bees do not make honey. This was only known recently. However more than1400 years ago the Quran refers to bees that generate the honey as females (the Arabic grammar is in the female mode):
[Quran 16.68-69]
And your Lord (Allah) revealed to the bees: Build your hives in mountains, trees and in what people build. Then eat (for females) from every fruit and follow (for females) your Lord's enslaved paths, fromtheir bellies (for females) exits drink of different colors, in it healing for man. These are signs for those who contemplate. (Surah An Nahl 16:68-69)
For the word "eat": "Kuli" is for females; "Kul" is for males. The Quran used "Kuli" (females).
For the word "follow a path": "Usluki" is for females; "Usluk" is for males. The Quran used "Usluki" (females).
For the word "their bellies": "butuniha" is for females; "butunihim" is for males. The Quran used "butuniha" (females).


The difference in temperature, salinity and CO2 concentrations in seas cause water to separate into layers. This was only known recently. However Moslems knew about it all along:
[Quran 55.19-20]
He [Allah] has made the two seas meet, between them a barrier that they don't transgress. (Surah Ar Rahman 55:19-20)

Not only light cannot reach deep waters but also the water layers down there are not flat but wavy, that is, the seas have internal waves just as they have surface waves. However Moslems also knew about this long before it was discovered:

[Quran 24.40]
Or like the depths of darkness in a vast deep ocean, overwhelmed with waves topped by waves, topped by clouds: depths of darkness, one above another: if a man stretches out his hand, he will not see it! If Allah does not give light to a person he will not have light! (Surah An Nur 24:40)
The Quran talked about internal waves long before it was discovered. Also, sunlight cannot penetrate more than few hundred meters into the seas. It is so dark down there that you cannot see your own hand.

The water cover about 71% of the Earth's surface. This is also the same ratio the word "water" and word "Land" appear in the Quran. "Water" 32 times and "Land" 13 times. The ratio of "Water" to the total (Water + Land) = 32/(32+13) = 71%.

Earth's crust has been slowly moving for billions of years. Not only mountains are still slowly moving but also whole continents. Moslems say that this is what Allah says:
[Quran 27.88]
You see the mountains and think they are firmly fixed: but they are moving away just like the clouds are moving away: (such is) the artistry of Allah, Who disposes of all things in perfect order: For He knows all what you do.
(Surah An Naml 27:88)

Cloud Seeding
During cloud formation, water can become supercooled, that is, it can get below freezing point but remain not frozen! This stage is so unstable that we can add some catalyst molecules to trigger rain. Historically humans used silver iodide, frozen carbon dioxide and some salts to trigger rain. This is known as cloud seeding.

However nature uses different material to seed the clouds. Nature uses both sea salt and land dust to trigger rain: Wind at the surface of the seas causes waves to roll. Those waves release aerosols into the air carrying the sea salt. The wind carry both the sea salt and the land dust to the clouds. The sea salt and land dust cause the supercooled water to coalesce and trigger precipitation.

[Quran 15:22]
And We send the seeding winds, then cause the rain to descend from the sky, therewith providing you with water, though you are not the guardians of its stores. (Surah Al Hijr 15:22)

Atmospheric Pressure
Atmospheric pressure decreases with altitude; The higher the altitude the more difficult breathing becomes. Moslems say that this is what Allah says. The Quran says that as we ascend to the sky it becomes more difficult for us to breath:
[Quran 6.125]
Those whom Allah wants to guide, He opens their chests to Islam; And those whom He wants to leave astray, He makes their chests tight and constricted, as if they are ascending to the sky: Such is the penalty of Allah on those who refuse to believe. (Surah Al An’Aam 6:125)

Brain Functions
For centuries it was thought that the frontal part of the human brain handled vision (simply because it is near the eyes). Today we know that this part handles speech, not vision. (the part that handles vision turned out to be at the rear of the brain
The Quran says that disbelievers will be dragged from there liar forehead, that is, the speech part where they utter lies is at the forehead.

[Quran 96.16]

A lying sinful forehead.(Surah Al-'Alaq 96:16)

Females have XX chromosomes, that is, they can only give one X chromosome. But since males have XY chromosomes then men can either give the X or the Y chromosome. This means that it is actually the males who determine the sex of the baby (by giving either the X or the Y chromosome).
[Quran 53:45-46]
And He (Allah) creates pairs, male and female, from semen emitted.
The Quran says that it is the semen that determines whether the baby is male or female. But since semen only comes from males then this means that it is the males who determine the sex of the baby.

(Surah An Najm 53:45-46)

These are just some of the facts which shows that:

The Qur'an, this extraordinary book which was revealed to the Seal of the Prophets, Muhammad (PBUH), is a source of inspiration and true knowledge. The book of Islam-no matter what subject it refers to-is being proved as Allah's Word as each new piece of historical, scientific or archaeological information comes to light. Facts about scientific subjects and the news delivered to us about the past and future, facts that no one could have known at the time of the Qur'an's revelation, are announced in its verses. It is impossible for this information, to have been known with the level of knowledge and technology available in 7th Century Arabia.

The A and B of currencies ( The Edge, Malaysia July 18-23, 2011)

The A and B of currencies

Written by Zahid Aziz

This article appeared in Forum page of The Edge Malaysia, Issue 867, July 18-24, 2011

We have just completed a job and about to be paid for it. We are given an option to be paid A or B. A’s value is stable - there seems to be a basic value which is unchanged.

B has no basic value. If you hold B its value can be taken away by various external forces. It can be changed by the governments; it can be changed by governments creating more and more of it; it can be changed by people losing confidence in it; it can also be changed by outsiders holding large quantities of it and cornering the market for it.

USD & World Trade - The Theft Under Our Nose

USD & World Trade‏ - The Theft Under Our Nose

To on behalf of zahid aziz (
Sent:Thursday, July 14, 2011 2:47:41 PM


The US have stole the world resources by giving valueless paper in return. They stole at least USD 14 trillon worth of world resources and still the world is missing the plot. USD14 trillion is USA's total debt as at May 2011 and its growing at USD1 trillion p.a This means every year USA steals USD1 trillion worth of our resources under our nose by printing paper currency and the world is still blind to the theft.

If only the Muslim world wakes up. If only the Muslim world finds an alternative other than USD in trades between itself. It will begin to at least stop some of the thieving. If only the Muslim world becomes a common market. In trades with non Muslim countries it can first try barter trade. When that limit has been reached exchange of each others currencies. And when forced then can use yuan or euro cautiously lest they become another USD. Muslim intellect must sit and discuss solutions to this problem.

But this will never happen when we have Muslim nations in blind support of the US. Much of these nations' investments are in the US including real property. It is difficult to dethrone the USD in the light of such fundamental compromises of principles.

The most intelligent and far thinking of most Islamic nations today is Iran. They planned their strategy to be a global nuclear power the minute the Shah was replaced.

It's not a good feeling to be like the white foams of the waves of the sea, plentiful but powerless. We need far thinking and Mukmin leaders to lead Muslim nations.

Vigilance is the Price of Freedom

Vigilance is the Price of Freedom

Assalamu ‘Alaikum,

Just sharing what I’m reading

Excerpt from “THE END OF MONEY AND THE FUTURE OF CIVILIZATION” by Thomas H Greco, Jr. (pp 21 & 22)  (Chelsea Green Publishing, White River Junction, Vermont) 

“Laurence Victor goes so far as to say, there are two alternative modes for coordinating activity so as to accomplish what only many hands in coordinated activity could accomplish. The egalitarian mode involves voluntary cooperation to achieve requisite coordination. An exemplar mode might be a tribe’s collective effort in gathering materials and constructing a long house. The egalitarian mode can have leaders or managers, as roles to assist in coordination. Ideally each person contributes as to their existing competencies and interests - and all essential roles are covered. The elitist mode involves forced labor in a top down command structure to achieve coordination ( and even to get persons to act as demanded). The force could be facilitated by slavery or wages, both essential for survival in a prevailing situation. Once a people settled into an elitist mode, it must be defended by force and the indoctrination of labor to accept their status.

For that reason, any excuse for concentrating power and curtailing the personal rights and freedoms to which all are entitled, even national defense or a “war on terror,” must be viewed with suspicion – for as H.L. Mencken observed more than 70 years ago, “The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.” The real hobgoblins, often created by government itself, can be effectively addressed only by responsible citizenry acting together from its community based.

The dilemma of a Malay in today’s modern world. The dialogue above is an imaginary one between the legendary Malay hero Hang Tuah and his loyal but betrayed friend Hang Jebat. The Sultan wrongfully accused the ever loyal Hang Tuah of treason and sentenced  him to be killed. Hang Jebat avenged his compatriot’s innocence in the only way he knows how, thinking Tuah is already dead. Hang Tuah returned to execute Jebat for betrayal of the Sultan.

Islam and the Future of Money

 Assalamu 'Alaikum,

Compulsory reading for all Muslims.



Abū Bakr ibn Abi Maryam reported that he heard the Messenger of Allah say: "A time is certainly coming over mankind in which there will be nothing (left) that will be of use (or benefit) save a Dinār (i.e., a gold coin) and a Dirham (i.e., a silver coin).” [This prophecy clearly anticipates the eventual collapse of the fraudulent monetary system now functioning around the world.]
(Musnad, Ahmad)

It is both strange and embarrassing that even at this late hour when enemies are about to weld into place the final iron gate of a financial Guantanamo, so many Muslims remain ignorant about the devilish nature of European-created money in the modern world.

Dear Douglas

Dear Douglas,
                      This is the Muslim belief as expounded in the Quran and you please share your thoughts with us on how to tell the world about it. Our objective of course is to get all of human kind to join us in the heavens of Allah and not be an enemy to us. Allah created Adam and Hawa (Eve) in heaven. They were cheated by Iblis(Satan) and gets thrown to the world. Allah tells them I will send down messengers to you and your descendants who will bring only one message and that message is La illa ha illallah, There is no god but Allah. Hence Prophet Adam, Noh (Noah), Yusuf(Joseph), Yacob (Jacob) Musa (Moses) and Isa(Jesus) amongst others.

The Muslim dilemma today

The Muslim dilemma today

By Dr Wan Azhar Wan Ahmad, Senior Fellow/Director Centre for the Study of Syariah, Law and Politics

There is an apparent disunity among Muslims as reflected in the number of major political parties, and they are generally in a state of crisis in almost every respect of life. MUSLIMS, regardless of times and locations, have been facing a varied magnitude of challenges since the very inception of Islam. This will never cease to happen.
In Islam and Secularism (1978), Syed Muhammad Naquib al-Attas, a contemporary Muslim thinker and the 2011 recipient of the Most Prominent Malay award, observes that these challenges may be categorised into two: internal and external.
The former pertains to challenges originating within Muslims’ own territory and intellectual history, and the latter from the outside world, resulting from their encounter with alien cultures and civilisations.
Both categories of challenges, either intellectual or physical in nature, bring equally destructive consequences to the Muslim community (ummah).
Let’s examine the conditions of Muslims in this country today. They are generally in a state of crisis almost in every respect of life – religiously, socially, economically and politically.
Far from simply unleashing sweeping statements, I am neither emotional nor judgmental here. But the above phenomenon can be discerned, among other things, from the increasing number of ignorant, secular and non-practising Muslims.
