DAP PERAK Representative stole the thunder from self-proclaimed Guardians of Islam

All Malaysian Muslims should be humbled by believers of universal Islamic values. These believers of values may not have to be Muslims or Malays. They are what ordinarily Malay Muslims call "kafir" or "unbelievers" of the Faith. To members of UMNO, the self-professed Guardians of Islam, this may shatter quite a few things. The general one is the "Guardians of Islam" notion attributed by UMNO members upon themselves. It may be hard to swallow, but that sounds like some sky has fallen down: non-Muslims understand and profess the universalism of Islamic values.

Let's not quibble on this. Both the UMNO members and DAP members are learning. Nothing can be more worthy than that.

In the ensuing weeks or months let's see how the Landas Season fare.

It's raining outside my window and the leaves rustle gently among the branches.

The Qur'an verses quoted

§ 12. O ye who believe! Shun much suspicion; for lo! some suspicion is a crime. And spy not, neither backbite one another. Would one of you love to eat the flesh of his dead brother ? Ye abhor that (so abhor the other)! And keep your duty (to Allah). Lo! Allah is Relenting, Merciful.


[The Meaning of the Glorious Qur'ân, by M.M. Pickthall]

§ 110. Ye are the best community that hath been raised up for mankind. Ye enjoin right conduct and forbid indecency; and ye believe in Allah. And if the People of the Scripture had believed it had been better for them. Some of them are believers; but most of them are evil-livers.

Al Imran
