PM Najib Supports “7 Wasiat Raja-Raja Melayu”

Have you heard of the 7 declarations of the 9 Malay Rulers’ Legal Will?

When I did a Google search, I found out that YAB PM Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak Supports “7 Wasiat Raja-Raja Melayu”.

1 Sinar Harian - 7 Wasiat

 

PM  Najib says that “Tujuh Wasiat Sembilan Raja-Raja Melayu” is very clear with no uncertainty; and it cannot be disputed.

 

2 Bernama - 7 wasiat

Bernama 7th Aug 2009

Translated to English

PM Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak on Friday reminded the people to respect the reminder given by Raja Muda Perak Raja Dr Nazrin Shah on the “legal will” of the nine Malay Rulers.

He said this when asked to comment on the remarks of Raja Muda Perak Raja Dr Nazrin Shah which reminded the people especially the Malays of the “Tujuh Wasiat Raja-Raja Melayu” which promised solidarity, peace and harmony if they unite and adhere firmly to it.

The “legal will” was conveyed by the Malay Rulers before they signaled the consent of the formation of the Federal Constitution of Malaya on 5 August 1957.

Defense Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi said the “Tujuh Wasiat Raja-Raja Melayu” was much more than a social contract between the people and the king, and it also had a depth of meaning.

Perhaps many have forgotten concerning this “legal will” – only to be used as historical material. Zahid added that Raja Muda Perak Raja Dr Nazrin Shah has made the “legal will” a stern warning not only to Malays but also to the non-Malays.

My Comments

I have been left with no shadow of doubt that the “7 declarations of the 9 Malay Rulers Legal Will” must be fully adhered to.

Please join me to give our unequivocal commitment to this noble objective. My following articles will explain.

Tujuh Wasiat Raja-Raja Melayu

This document was published by Malaysia’s Ministry of Information concerning

The 7 declarations of the 9 Malay Rulers Legal Will.

Let us take a pictorial journey to the hearts and minds of the 9 Rulers of the Malaya states (later renamed Malaysia).

Unlocking The Blessings Of The King’s Name

I’m writing this posting as a citizen journalist.

I want to make this interesting and definitely unconventional.

The subject of our interest? Unlocking the blessings of the King’s name.

1 King

The Monarch Of Malaysia *

The present king of Malaysia was born as “Tengku” Muhammad Faris Petra.

Actual birthday is on 6th October 1969. Current age 47.

His Majesty became the “Crown Prince” or “Tengku Mahkota” in the state of Kelantan in October 1985.

After ascending to the throne of Kelantan on 13th Sept 2010, His Majesty would be known as Sultan Muhammad V (The Fifth).

On 13th Dec 2016, His Majesty was proclaimed as the Head of State of Malaysia.

To be known to His subjects, His peers and to the world as;

Duli Yang Maha Mulia Seri Paduka Baginda Yang di-Pertuan Agong Sultan Muhammad V.

2_Tengku Anis Tengku Abdul Hamid

Why Are Names Important To Muslim Parents? *

They believe that the chosen name will unlock the child’s destiny and his life’s purpose.

Even as an adult, we need to discover again the (deeper) meaning of our own names.

Then, we will begin to understand our identity and the direction we need to take in life.

3_King_Nst

The Power Of The Name *

Tuanku Muhammad [ Faris Petra ].

“Tuanku” indicates My Lord, My Master, My King.

Obviously “Muhammad” is the name of the prophet of Islam.

The praiseworthy one who is beloved in the hearts of all Muslims.

“Faris” indicates perspicacity, sagacity, sharp insight and deep discernment of spiritual truths.

“Faris” also indicates a skilled horseman or warrior on horseback in Arabic.

“Petra” is the name of the Kelantan royal family which denotes The Rock and Foundation Stone.

4_King

The Blessings Unlocked *

Hence the name of our King means:-

A beloved King to his people.

After the example of the prophet.

With deep discernment of the will of the Almighty.

Who is the cornerstone of the kingdom.

6_King.jpg

What Does Muhammad V Mean? *

To those who oppose the King or his good works,

They will know him as Muhammad “The Victorious”,

The one mandated to overcome all adversities.

What Does “V” Mean? *

“V” is a Roman numeral which denotes FIVE (5).

5_hand-05

The Power Of Five *

There are five fingers on our right hand.

Therefore there are five aligning influences which is a moral compass to the King.

1. The five pillars of Islam.

2. The five daily ritual Islamic prayers.

3. The King is the Head of Islam in five states. 1 Sultanate and 4 Medinan States.

4. The King is impacted by the 1st five Surahs of the Qu’ran. 1 Meccan and 4 Medinan Surahs.

5. The King is guided by five Muftis of the five states who form an informal council of advisors.

I have not included Federal Territories for item (3) and (5) because I don’t consider FT as one of the states which signed the agreement of federation on 31st Aug 1957 or 16th Sept 1963.

What’s Next? *

I will study the meaning of the Medinah Constitution in conjunction with Awal Muharram. This will give us clues to the King’s life purpose.

PAS Attacks Sabah Politician David Orok

1_PAS

Islamic party PAS filed a police report against Sabah politician David Orok for insulting Islam.

PAS urged the police, Jakim an Islamic regulatory body and Ministry Of Home Affairs (KDN) to investigate Orok for offending the sensitivities of Muslims.

My fellow Malaysians, let’s not take any sides but examine the issue without any pre-determined prejudices.

1_David Orok

Orok allegedly posted his remarks in his Facebook page concerning Abraham (Ibrahim) which Muslims revered him as a prophet.

Abraham is also the father of the Ishmael (Ismail) which became the ancestor of the Arab and Semantic people.

The revered Prophet Muhammad who is the founder of the Muslim faith can trace his ancestry to Ishmael.

1b_David Orok

Orok allegedly said that Abraham had a wife and two concubines which he sired children with all three.

Then Orok tied it with a local controversy where Malaysian Muslim children born with their parents’ wedded legitimacy status if questionable – are not allowed to take on their father’s name.

BIG MISTAKE.

Let me explain it from my perspective.

Abraham was living around the year 1950 BC (Before Christ).

The Prophet Moses (Musa) who introduced the 10 commandments lived aound year 1526 BC.

The Prophet Muhammad who introduced the Syariah law was born in year 571 A.D.

MY QUESTION TO DAVID OROK.

Do you know that you are judging someone with a law which was not existing in their lifetime?

Next question: are you judging Abraham according to the Mosaic law which came 400+ years later?

Or is it according to Syariah laws which came about 2500+ years after Abraham?

Is it appropriate to judge the conduct of a people living in a different century, which have different customs in a different culture?

Is this your understanding of the law and precepts practised some 4000 years ago?

HEY OROK. DO YOURSELF A FAVOUR!

Do retract your insensitive posting and make an apology to your fellow Malaysians.

Please remember to be more circumspect in future. You will make more friends than enemies.

2_PAS

MY COMMENTS ON PAS

Many of us speculate that PAS aspires to form the next government presumably with Umno after GE14.

You made no secret of your police report plus your urging of Jakim and KDN to take criminal action against David Orok.

You left us no doubt that there will be more of the same big-stick if ever PAS were to come to power in the national government.

Was it too difficult for PAS to give a rebuttal and clarification to David Orok’s allegations point-by-point?

Some Muslims may be aware of your position but most of us really don’t.

Isn’t it time for you to connect to us? We are a multi-ethnic and multi-religious Malaysia.

Wouldn’t it be a perfect opportunity for PAS to tell us about the beauty and message of Islam?

If you had disarmed David Orok by gentle persuasion, wouldn’t you have won over another 100,000 hearts and minds through social media?

Instead you resorted to the sword (metaphor) rather than the pen.

But it isn’t too late to amend your ways. Will you?

1d_Kedah

Monday, September 11, 2017 is a day we will remember.

In the future when we look back, it will be poignant moments.

Words cannot describe the emotions we feel. It’s best we peruse the news clips and photos before us.

1b_Kedah

Dark clouds hang over the nation like the sorrow in our hearts.

1c_Kedah

Malaysia have lost one of her finest son.

The King’s Birthday Message To All Malaysians

1_King Nst

The Yang Di-Pertuan Agong Sultan Muhammad V exhorted all Malaysians to pursue unity and harmony in the country.

This was on the joyous occasion of the King’s birthday which was celebrated on Saturday 9th Sept 2017.

The monarch of Malaysia emphasized that unity among the people was the reason for the peace and prosperity that we are now enjoying.

His Majesty expressed confidence in the Royal Malaysia Police and security forces which are diligently combating the terrorism scourge.

Senseless bloodshed and civil conflicts especially in some Middle East countries will serve as a lesson to all.

4_Ayob_isis

My Comments *

The King’s message of unity is very timely as we are witnessing many countries turning into war zones due to extremist elements.

It cannot escape our observation that considerable number of Muslims were involved in these lone-wolf skirmishes and also armed insurgencies.

Such violence targeting civillians and innocent citizens are categorically condemned.

But we have to be cautious not to implicate the sanctity of religion with the criminals.

They have committed their grisly crimes due to gross misinterpretations of their faith.

5_ Multiracial Malaysia

Multi-Ethnic Malaysia *

We know that the citizenry of Malaysia encompasses different cultures and ethnic groups which goes on to practice different religions.

In pursuing the objective of harmony and keeping the peace, the spirit of give-and-take should be inculcated in our citizens.

6_ Freedom of religion

Freedom Of Religion *

Not every country in the world provides the freedom of religion to its citizens.

Hence we should appreciate and guard this precious commodity; the freedom and liberty to worship according to our faiths.

A privilege should never be abused – simply because a privilege is not a right.

Don’t cross any red lines that will jeorpadize the unity and harmony of the nation;

Especially in ill-advised proselytization to other communities.

7_King_Unity

Our King Is A Symbol Of Unity *

We should pledge our full support to our King and His Majesty’s message of unity and harmonious living.

If ever we lose the peace, it would be impossible to put together the shattered pieces.

Pesan-Pesan Terakhir Sultan Kedah

Sultan Kedah - MK

Pesan-Pesan Terakhir Sultan Kedah
11 Sep 2017, Malaysiakini.com

Harimau mati meninggal belang, manusia mati meninggalkan jasa.

Kemangkatan Sultan Kedah Sultan Abdul Halim Mu’Adzam Shah sudah pasti mendukacitakan seluruh rakyat Malaysia.

Di samping menyembah takziah, orang ramai mungkin boleh merenung kembali titah rasmi terakhir baginda 28 hari lalu ketika perasmian Persidangan Dewan Undangan Negeri (DUN), Mesyuarat Pertama Penggal Kelima yang ke-13 di di Alor Setar.

Dalam titah 14 Ogos itu, almarhum menzahirkan rasa dukacita atas tindakan sesetengah pemimpin politik dan individu berkepentingan yang mengambil kesempatan menghangatkan permusuhan sesama Islam di ruang maya.

Baginda turut menyelar ilmuwan agama yang tidak terkecuali mengeluarkan fatwa, tuduh-menuduh dan berdebat di alam siber sehingga masyarakat berbelah bagi.

“Janganlah kerana perbezaan ideologi yang sempit atau kerana kepentingan diri yang lain, isu sensitif seperti kemuliaan agama Islam, kedaulatan raja-raja, hak keistimewaan kaum, hukum-hakam serta agama Islam diperdebatkan secara tidak beradab di laman sosial sekali gus mengundang tafsiran negatif,” titah baginda.

Titah itu dibacakan oleh Raja Muda Kedah Tan Sri Tunku Sallehuddin Sultan Badlishah.

Maklumat Tiada Tapisan *

Almarhum Sultan Abdul Halim juga mengingatkan bahawa pada ketika ini pelbagai maklumat boleh diperoleh dengan bebas tanpa ada tapisan yang boleh membezakan antara yang hak dan batil.

Titah baginda lagi, penggunaan telefon dan gajet sudah menjadi budaya hidup, menyaksikan lebih 17 juta penduduk mempunyai akses kepada ruang maya dan separuh daripadanya mempunyai Facebook.

“Natijahnya, fitnah dan cerita palsu menjadi tular dan dijaja serata tempat, senario ini menjadi virus yang memporakperandakan dan mengelirukan rakyat, memecahbelahkan dan mengucar-ngacirkan ukhuwah yang selama ini terjalin indah,” titah Sultan Abdul Halim.

Pendidikan Islam *

Baginda juga mengambil berat berkaitan pendidikan, terutamanya pendidikan Islam.

Dalam ucapan di hadapan anggota-anggota Dewan Undangan Negeri (ADUN) Kedah itu, baginda
melahirkan rasa bangga apabila Kedah menjadi antara negeri dan pelopor awal dalam usaha memartabatkan perkara itu.

“Hal ini dapat dibuktikan menerusi sistem pengajian pondok di mana sistem pondok kini telah dibuat penambahbaikan dan kesannya kini kita sudah memiliki Maahad Tahfiz Sains di Kulim,” titahnya.

Modal Insan Gen Y *

Pembangunan model insan di kalangan generasi baru turut memikat hati baginda apabila Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Ahmad Bashah Md Hanipah mendapat pujian melalui program-program negeri.

“Beta juga amat tertarik dengan daya usaha memanda menteri besar yang menjadikan usaha gilapan modal insan sebagai dasar utama negeri, meskipun ‘Gen-Y’ hanya mewakili 38 peratus daripada keseluruhan penduduk Kedah, beta difahamkan kerajaan negeri memberi fokus lebih kepada 40 peratus pelaksanaan dasar kepada generasi muda,” titahnya.

AL FATIHAH

Sultan Kedah - NST

The Sultan of Kedah, Sultan Abdul Halim Mu’adzam Shah, passed away today.

He was 89 years old. He passed away at the Istana Anak Bukit, in Kedah at 2.30pm. 11 Sept 2017.

The Sultan’s last words to the nation on 14th August 2017.

“Do not pursue sensitive issues due to narrow ideological differences or personal self-interest.

There are issues which are not suitable for unrestrained debate on social media.

This includes the sanctity of Islam, the sovereignty of the Sultans, the special privileges of ethnic groups, the state laws and the Islamic religion.

Such uncultured exchanges would invite negative connotations and misunderstandings.”

His Majesty so decreed.

# Bahasa

Janganlah kerana perbezaan ideologi yang sempit atau kerana kepentingan diri yang lain, isu sensitif seperti kemuliaan agama Islam, kedaulatan raja-raja, hak keistimewaan kaum, hukum-hakam serta agama Islam diperdebatkan secara tidak beradab di laman sosial sekali gus mengundang tafsiran negatif,” titah baginda.

Our King’s Birthday – A Hidden Meaning 

1a_ king

Today marks a very special date in our Malaysian calendar.

Since the enthronement of our beloved King, Yang di-Pertuan Agong Sultan Muhammad V;

The royal command had been issued for the celebrations to be observed today.

[ Previously, the first Saturday of June (yearly) was gazetted as the King’s birthday. ]

Dates Are Important *

According to the Muslim calendar, it is 18 Dhul-Hijjah 1438.

It is also the 9th of September 2017 on the Gregorian calendar.

Spiritual Significance *

If we observe closely, these dates have a spiritual significance, a deeper meaning and a definite correlation. The interpretation comes from understanding the event and sequence of the dates.

Ramadan ~ 27th May 2017 (30 days)

Eid al-Fitr ~ 25th June 2017

Merdeka ~ 31st Aug 2017 (60 years)

Eid ul Adha ~ 1st Sept 2017

King’s Birthday ~ 9th Sept 2017

Malaysia Day ~ 16th Sept 2017

Awal Muharram 1439 ~ 21st Sept 2017

Hidden Meanings *

Ramadan speaks of a time of fasting, repentance, seeking forgiveness and soul-searching. Some have gone astray through the misinterpretations of the faith.

Eid al-Fitr is about charity, remembering the poor and thanksgiving for the Almighty’s blessings. We are being blessed to become a blessing to others.

Merdeka speaks of the birth of a nation under the purpose, protection and providence of the Almighty. We received independence and freedom to pursue the destiny of this nation.

Interestingly, Merdeka coincides with Eid ul Adha on the evening of 31st Aug 2017.

Eid ul Adha is about Abraham (Ibrahim) who is the father of faith. There must be a willingness to trust, to obey and to sacrifice. This is the prerequisite of human beings (the ummah) being in covenant relationship with the Almighty.

The King’s Birthday speaks of the birth of a King with predestination to rule as the Head of the Government (Sanskrit ke-RAJA-an) of Malaysia. The mandate-to-rule was entrusted by Allah and full accountability will be required on Judgment Day.

Malaysia Day speaks of the transition of this nation; from Tanah Melayu to Malaysia. Moving beyond the shores of Malaya to embrace a greater nation (Malaysia) of greater boundaries. Embracing citizens of different cultures, customs, dialects, languages, talents, skills, races and religions. Loyal to the nation and in full allegiance to our King, The Yang di-Pertuan Agong.

Awal Muharram is about the Hijra of Prophet Muhammad from Mecca to Medina. This speaks of a renewing, a refreshing, a reset, a restart, a revelation and a restoration of the purpose of our life journey. This applies to the individual citizen and collectively as a nation. The destiny of Malaysia awaits all of us at the start of the new calendar year.

Appreciation *

I am thankful to the Almighty for moving the King’s heart, for inspiring His Majesty to revise the celebration date of the King’s birthday.

I am equally grateful to our King for responding to the Almighty’s leading. This has allowed me to make these meaningful observations.

Kindly note that each step is a prerequisite before the next step can happen. No skipping of the sequence is allowed.

Please leave a comment. Your feedback is most appreciated.

The Creative Genius Of Pete Teo

1a_Pete Teo

Film-maker Pete Teo stormed into our hearts with his Youtube clip entitled “Hari Malaysia Kembara” (2013).

It was then a time of nation-building for all Malaysians during and after GE13 (held on 5th May 2013).

It was also in conjunction with ‘Malaysia Day’ which falls on 16th Sept 2013.

THE PAIN POINT *

The prevailing perception was that Malaysians had lost their patriotism and identity.

The feeling of ownership and sense of belonging was sadly missing from this current generation.

1b_Malaysia

THE MISSION *

The objective was to tap into powerful emotions present and alive during Merdeka.

Capturing the (old) flame and rekindling the first love and patriotism for the country.

Instilling meaning, purpose and destiny to a new generation yet to experience 1957.

1c_Sofia Jane

THE STRATEGY *

Teo digitally ‘recreated’ the scenes of Independence on the historical days of 31st August 1957.

This is where the nation’s founding father; our first PM Tunku Abdul Rahman declared ‘Merdeka’ meaning freedom, liberty and independence.

1d_Liow Tiong Lai

Teo used ‘green-screen’ multimedia technologies to super-impose current politicians and celebrities into old historical clips from 1957.

1e Liow Tiong Lai

It was an infusion and a fusion of the current and living into an historical event 56 years ago. (2013-1957 = 56 years)

THE RESULTING MASTERPIECE *

A remix and reimagination so subtle, so moving, so powerful.

Fusing present-day living icons with stirring memories of meaningful history.

Soft and beautiful music alluring to the heartbeat and poetic lyrics inviting us to join in.

CONGRATULATIONS PETE TEO *

The agenda and motive of making this film was highly commendable and noble.

We have good reasons to celebrate the creative genius of Malaysian filmmaker Pete Teo.

SUBLIMINAL MESSAGES *

However, there is something stirring in me as an after-thought.

Did filmmaker Pete Teo really need to BYPASS or TRICK our logical minds?

Did anyone ask for our consent or our permission for this secret operation?

Were there SUBLIMINAL messages in the film which were sent secretly into our subconscious mind?

1h_subconscious

OUR CONSCIOUS MIND *

Our conscious mind acts as a logical and reasoning filter to all incoming information and experiences in life.

Information which are fake, or does not fit our beliefs are tagged ‘deviant’ and are ‘cold-storaged’.

Like computer viruses locked up in “VAULT” of the anti-virus software and added into the virus signature list.

OUR SUBCONSCIOUS MIND *

Information approved by our conscious mind are tagged ‘acceptable’ and stored in our subconscious mind; for later use.

Such information are very powerful because it serves like computer codes which are drivers to our future actions and behaviour.

Human Brain

ETHICAL ISSUES *

This is the 21st century and there are many ingenious film-makers like Pete Teo in the world.

If they can resort to manipulating reality and creating multimedia illusions:-

> to trick our minds so that we accept the illusions, delusions and deceptions as real;

> to circumvent our logical and perception checkpoints that filter out fake news;

> to insert hidden subliminal messages into our subconscious mind.

Kindly do advise us – should there be a red line drawn to define the boundaries of ethical behaviour?

1i_Hypnosis

THE GRAVE SITUATION IS *

Both our conscious and subconscious mind are designed to work together.

If you bypass our conscious mind, it would be akin to using hypnosis on the person.

Hypnosis is where the hypnotist puts the person and her conscious mind into a sleep-like trance;

Then he communicates directly with the person’s subconscious mind;

For the purpose of planting benign auto-suggestions or positive affirmations.

Would anyone agree to have his or her spouse to be hypnotized;

Without a video camera or 3rd party supervision?

OUR MINDS CAN BE TRICKED *

The interesting questions are:-

Was ‘Nurul Izzah Anwar’ or ‘Namewee’ even born or existing in 1957?

Were the RTM building even built and ‘Majulah Malaysia’ slogan even conceived in 1957?

Were the cultural dances of Sabah and Sarawak (1963) even relevant to ‘Merdeka’ or Malaya in 1957?

1k_Pete Teo

A CRUCIAL QUESTION FOR PETE TEO *

If the agenda and motive of the filmmaker’s client becomes questionable or cannot be scrutinized,

How do we guard ourselves from hidden subliminal messages that seep into our subconscious mind?

We just realized that you have the awesome power to influence our thoughts, feelings and actions!

FROM KEMBARA (2013) TO CITIZENS (2017) *

1n_MCA Liow

My comments on ‘Citizens’ will appear in a future posting.
