I'll keep singing Allah sayyaan

Haresh Says, as published in The Malay Mail today.

With the increasing number of our East Malaysian friends now working and living in the Klang Valley, it is only natural for some churches to conduct their mass in Bahasa Melayu – simply to ensure those attending understood what is going on.


The same situation can be seen in many Gurdwara as projectors screen the English translation of verses from the Guru Granth Sahib so that the younger generation could understand better.

In short, it is just a way for followers to understand their religion better.

Even calling this entire episode as the ‘Allah issue’ is wrong. Since when was God  an issue?

There are better ways of addressing such matters as rightfully said by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak.

“It will be less tense when we can sit down together,” Najib was quoted as saying.

Let’s understand the matter at hand before jumping the gun. Let’s be matured about this. The last thing we need is to politicise this.

I rather not say more and leave you with Aik Alif (One God).


Parh parh ilm te faazil hoya

Te kaday apnay aap nu parhya ee na

(You read so many books to know it all, yet fail to read your heart)

Bhaj bhaj warna ay mandir maseeti

Te kaday mann apnay wich warya ee na

(You rush to temples and mosques to play a part, would you dare enter the shrine of your heart?)

Larna ay roz shaitaan de naal

Te kadi nafs apnay naal larya ee na

(You are quick to attack Satan, yet pride is a battle you have not won)


Bulleh Shah asmaani ud-deya pharonda ay

Te jera ghar betha unoon pharya ee na


(You grab for a star you can control but fail to grasp the light in your soul)

Bas kareen o yaar

(Stop it, my friend)

Allah Sayyaan Allah Sayyaan

(God is great, God is all)


Nee main jaanaa Jogi de naal

(Follow the wandering dervish)

Jo naa jaane, Haqq ki taaqat

Rabb naa devey us ko Himmat


(If you deny the power of all that’s true, God will not grant strength to you)


Hum Mann ke darya mein doobey

Kaisi nayya? Kya manjhdhaar?


(We are lost in this river of self, no boat or streams are of any help)


Bas kareen o yaar

(Stop it, my friend)

Ilm-oun bas kareen o yaar

(Stop trying to know it all, my friend)


Allah sayyaan, Allah sayyaan

(God is great, God is all)

  1. There was once a Malay Muslim lady converted to Christianity when she married a Singaporean. This caused uproar among the Muslim's in Malaysia. When the media interviewed Tun Mahathir, over the matter....he had this to say, "Malaysia is a democratic country we can't stop anyone from converting to another religion, if we do so, the international community will view us negatively"

    Those are the words spoken by a great leader like Tun Mahathir, even though he's a Muslim.

    Today, we have to put up with politician like Noh Omar, who is making other Muslim's look bad with his action and statements.
    They are using religion for their survival, knowing well that politically they're doomed.

    However, the Catholic's are also lost in the wilderness, when it comes to morality. Just look at what is happening in the west. There's serious moral issues like same sex's getting married in churches, and endorsed by the priest. What do they got to say about it??? They should be ashamed of this action and behaviour by their fellow Catholics. In the west and most of Europe Catholics have lost their faith simply because of freedom and human rights. They're abusing the real teaching of the Bible in the name of human right, and putting the other true followers to shame.

    Can Vatican and father Lawrence explain to us, why they have failed to address and correct this shameful act by their fellow Catholics.

    I'm a Muslim convert, and my late mother comes from a Christian family.I really hope Vatican and father Lawrence can explain to the world about this shameful act flourishing around the world besides championing the 'Allah' word.

What went wrong with KL SEA Games?

145 gold medals.
It's the best Team Malaysia has ever achieved since the inception of the SEAP Games in1959.
The 29th edition of the SEA Games in Kuala Lumpur ended yesterday. The opening ceremony dazzled those at the stands and viewers at home while the performances during the closing ceremony yesterday jogged plenty of musical memories to many.
Our athletes, the real superheroes, brought smiles through their heroic display. They made everyday a happy day.
Kudos to the officials - from the coaches, the National Sports Institute and National Sports Council - for their hard work in ensuring our athletes perform to their best.
But it was not all memorable.

'World fashion disaster' in KL

World Fashion Week Asia 2017 ended over the weekend.

And the launch on Friday at Palace of the Golden Horses at Mines Resort City just outside Kuala Lumpur turned out to be a forgettable night.

Why?

It was poorly organised.

Just as many are trying to get over the nightmare witnessed throughout the KL SEA Games, the organiser of World Fashion Week Asia 2017 has made it look like Malaysians seem to have lost it when it comes to hosting major events and hospitality.

Here's why.

Royal protocol ignored

1. The Sultanah of Terengganu Sultanah Nur Zahirah was invited to grace the event.
    a. There was no holding room for the Sultanah and VIPs accompanying her.
    b. The Sultanah was invited on stage without anyone accompanying her there (a big NO NO if anyone knows protocol involving royalty).
    c. The event dragged on till 11.30pm, way past the cut off point of the very many events I've attended with members of the royal family present.
   d. The Sultanah was forced to walk all t…

Klang run 'illegal', says Sports Commissioner

UPDATE (Dec 11; 11.58am): Sporting events approved by Sports Commissioner's Office will be posted on the Youth and Sports Ministry's website starting Dec 14, as revealed by the Sports Commissioner in her statement today. I'm glad the last point of my observation (as per posting right below) has been addressed.

UPDATE (10.57pm): A Twitter user had sent me a link by the organiser of the Klang Heritage Marathon 2017. It states that the marathon has been "postponed to Oct 14, 2018" and that they have been victims of fake news and will lodge reports with the authorities against materials with elements of defamation or fake news. Read the full statement, posted on Dec 2, here.
