How Did Halloween Become Christian?

1 Halloween Title

Seriously. I would have been deeply offended if anyone told me so.

That was until I gathered and verified the evidence myself. Now, I really need you to correct me if I am wrong on my facts.

Historical Background *

Halloween was a ‘holy’ day to worship Samhain, the Lord of the dead.

He was the God of the ancient Celts in medieval Britain, Ireland and northern France. Their priests were called Druids, linked to Stonehenge.

2 Stonehenge

Druids dabble with the pentagram and practice child sacrifice by fire. It was to summon their gods from the underworld to gain occult powers.

Celts believe that the dead and deceased will return to the earth as ghosts and ghouls on the night of #Halloween.

Today, this dreadful night of horror is also celebrated by Wicca, witches and Satan-worshipers. After all, it is their most important ‘holy’ day.

Religious Background *

By 43 AD, the Roman Empire had conquered most of the Celtic territory. Over the years, the Romans had combined their religious festivals with the Celts.

On 13 May, 609 A.D. Pope Boniface IV converted the Pantheon into a Roman Catholic church. Before that, it was a Roman temple to worship every god in the world.

Hence, the Pantheon was renamed the Basilica of Virgin Mary. It was dedicated in the honour of St. Mary and all Catholic martyrs.

Pope Gregory III (731-741) dedicated a prayer chapel in the Basilica of St. Peter to all martyrs and saints. He changed the celebration date to 1st November.

Revering St. Mary + martyrs + saints = All Saints Day/ All Hallows Day.

Pope Gregory IV (827-844) then commanded that the celebrations must be observed and practiced by ALL the Roman Catholic churches worldwide.

Name & Date Coincidence *

31st October 2017 is Halloween Night (Hallow’s Eve).

1st November 2017 is Hallow’s Day or All Saints Day.

2nd November 2017 is All Souls Day or the Day of the Dead.

5c_Catholics pray at graves

Catholics pray with candles at the graves.

According to Jewish tradition and Islamic practice, the evening is the beginning of a new day which lasts until the next evening.

Refer to Genesis Chapter 1 verse 5 ~ And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the ‘EVENING’ and the morning were the first day. (KJV)

Hence Halloween which was dedicated to the underworld gods had somehow connected to the Catholic ‘holy’ day – in both name and date coincidence.

Halloween Commercialized *

On the night of Halloween, children and adults alike would disguise themselves as goblins, ghouls and ghastly zombies.

They were hoping that the roaming demons and devils would mistaken them as one of their own. Hence they would not be disturbed.

A typical Halloween would be spent visiting horror house attractions, watch horror movies or attend costume parties.

Carving Jack’o’lanterns, set alight bonfires and telling scary stories. Provoking fear is the common element in these Celtic traditions.

Some local restaurants may even serve up secret ingredients and devilish courses for spirit cooking.

In the name of entertainment and ‘innocent fun’, this horrifying practice had spread to many countries in the world.

What Are The Issues? 

Well you may ask – What’s wrong with dressing up as demons and devils?

Obviously your child (with his mask) just had a change of identity and did an impersonation of evil.

How do you know whether those same evil spirits had drifted (or not) into the soul of your children?

Satan’s rebellion against God = Children’s rebellion against their parents = ???

7a_halloween-kids

Trick Or Treat?

On Halloween, children in America would hope to collect candies and chocolates as they knock on their neighbourhood house doors.

‘Trick-or-treat’ meaning if you don’t treat us with candies, we will play evil tricks and pranks on your household.

TRANSLATED — If you don’t submit to us and do our bidding, we will curse you, haunt you and cast spells on you. Terrifying, isn’t it?

7b_halloween-kids

The world has gone mad. There were reports of candies being laced with drugs or having razor blades embedded in them. Collected by the children on Halloween.

In the first place, why would you allow your children to take ‘gifts’ from strangers? Ladies, do you take drinks offered to you from strange men?

Protest & Resistance *

500 years ago on 31st October 1517, another ‘coincidence’ happened on Halloween.

An Augustinian monk Martin Luther nailed 95 theses on the door of Wittenberg Castle Church in Germany. Protesting the extra-biblical practices of the Popes.

8_Martin-Luther

The Augustinian order of monks were an evangelism arm of the Roman Catholic church in Europe.

This act of protest and resistance would spark the wildfire of the Protestant #Reformation that swept Europe and the rest of the world.

9a_Pope incense 1

My Question To Christians

Has any Pope ever condemned the celebration of Halloween?

Has the Holy See ever explained the date and name coincidence of Halloween and All Hallow’s Day?

Has the Vatican ever explained the necessity of the practice of praying to (so many) dead people?

Therefore – Is the Reformation protest of 500 years still on or is it over?

To All My Christian Friends *

Let’s celebrate the real reason for the Christian Reformation on 31st Oct 2017.

We are a chosen people called to be children of light.

Happy 500th Reformation Day!

Wasiat Akhir Dan Warisan DiRaja

Wasiat Al-Wasiyya

Pernahkah anda dinamakan sebagai waris dalam satu wasiat akhir?

Katakanlah, seseorang yang berkenalan dengan anda telah meninggal dunia; samada keluarga atau rakan.

Al-Wasi (pentadbir) harta pusaka mendiang telah memberitahu bahawa anda telah dinamakan sebagai waris dalam wasiat akhir mendiang Al-musi (pewaris).

Ini bermakna anda adalah bakal menerima satu warisan hartanah, harta benda, saham, wang tunai dan sebagainya.

2d family

Families Sitting In Back Of Van Smiling

Perkara Undang-undang Penting *

1. Al-Musi (pewaris) adalah penulis wasiat akhir. Dia melantik Al-Wasi (pentadbir) dan menamakan waris yang layak menerima peninggalan.

2. Waris tidak boleh diubah. Anda sebagai waris mempunyai hak sahih untuk menerima (atau menolak) segalanya yang dinyatakan di dalam wasiat akhir.

3. Kandungan dalam wasiat akhir tidak boleh diubah. Al-Wasi (pentadbir) harta pusaka tidak mempunyai kuasa untuk menukar wasiat akhir; supaya menjadikannya lebih ‘sempurna’.

4. Al-Wasi (pentadbir) diberi kuasa mengedarkan harta pusaka itu hanya mengikut panduan terkandung dan mematuhi hasrat yang diwasiatkan oleh Al-Musi (pewaris).

5. Al-Wasi (pentadbir) tidak boleh diubah kecuali kalau mahkamah diyakini ketidakcekapan Al-Wasi (pentadbir) tersebut. Maka, satu perintah mahkamah diwajibkan.

Ini Kisah Kami *

Raja-Raja Melayu telah memerintah Tanah Melayu semenjak 500 tahun yang lalu.

Dalam tempuh sebelum 31hb Ogos 1957, 9 Raja-Raja Melayu bermuafakat menjadikan Tanah Melayu (Malaya) sebagai satu warisan.

Warisan ini diwariskan kepada berjuta-juta rakyat Malaysia sebagai waris bersama.

Wasiat akhir adalah terkandung dalam Perlembagaan dan perjanjian-perjanjian lain. Ini juga dikenali sebagai “7 Wasiat Raja-Raja Melayu”.

Wasiat Akhir Diperkasakan Undang-Undang *

Al-Musi (pewaris) – 9 Raja-Raja Melayu sewaktu Merdeka.

Al-wasiyya (wasiat akhir) – Perlembagaan Persekutuan termasuk perjanjian lain.

Waris – semua rakyat Malaysia termasuk anda dan saya.

Al-Wasi (pentadbir) – 9 Sultan yang membentuk Majlis Raja-Raja.

Ketua Al-Wasi – DYMMSPB Yang di-Pertuan Agong yang mewakili Majlis Raja-Raja.

Warisan – keistimewaan kewarganegaraan, bentuk dan watak Malaysia yang kita menikmati.

Betapa indahnya prinsip-prinsip yang selaris ini:-

> Menerima warisan kami sebagai waris.

> “Tujuh Wasiat Raja-Raja Melayu” memperuntukkan warisan kepada semua rakyat Malaysia untuk menjaga kepentingan keturunan.

“Tujuh Wasiat Raja-Raja Melayu” jelas menyatakan bahawa terwujud tujuh ketetapan tidak boleh diubah tanpa tandatangan Agong dan meterai DiRaja.

1. Sekiranya 9 Raja-Raja bertindak sebagai ‘Al-wasi wasiat akhir’, siapa mempunyai kuasa sah untuk memindahkan kuasa Al-wasi kepada undi ahli politik?

2. Adalah 9 Raja-Raja tertekan apabila Tuanku-Tuanku menyerah kepada rang undang-undang (RUU) tersebut; dengan pengetahuan bahawa RUU ini akan meminggirkan ‘kuasa Al-wasi’?

3. Adakah satu referendum diwajibkan di seluruh negara untuk mendapatkan persetujuan rakyat Malaysia? Ini kerana rakyat dikenalpasti sebagai ‘waris’ dan kepentingan mereka akan terjejas.

4. Adakah rakyat Malaysia diberi maklum mengenai keputusan ahli politik untuk meminggirkan tandatangan Agong dan meterai DiRaja dalam pemindahan RUU?

5. Adakah rakyat Malaysia diberi penjelasan bahawa bil di Parlimen yang tidak menerima persetujuan dan perkenan Agong akan seterusnya secara otomatik menjadi RUU sahih dalam tempuh 30 hari?

6. Adakah satu persetujuan secara lisan atau bertulis diterima dari rakyat Malaysia sebagai penerima warisan?

Soalan-soalan penting ini perlu dijawab dengan segera kerana situasi ini boleh memberi kesan kepada integriti institusi dan kedaulatan undang-undang.

Kecuali dan sehingga satu referendum dijalankan di seluruh negara, untuk mendapatkan muafakatan 30 juta rakyat Malaysia;

Apa-apa pindaan kepada Perlembagaan Persekutuan yang meminggirkan kuasa Agong sejak 1983;

Seperlunya diteliti dari kedudukan preundangan yang sah; dan kalau dikenalpasti bertentangan perundangan; maka RUU tersebut mestilah dimansuh, ditolak dan ditarik-balik.

Saya dengan rendah hati merayu supaya tandatangan Agong dan meterai DiRaja diwajibkan semula untuk perundangan Akta RUU di Parlimen.

Parlimen Malaysia *

Biasanya dalam demokrasi parlimen, ahli parlimen membuat perbahasan dan pengundian untuk meluluskan rang undang-undang (RUU).

Apabila ia menerima tandatangan Yang di-Pertuan Agong dan meterai DiRaja, RUU ini menjadi Akta Parlimen.

Dalam kes Tun Dr M, parti pemerintah (Barisan Nasional) mengubal beberapa RUU yang diiringi kempen pahit.

Matlamatnya ialah untuk meminggirkan perlindungan dan keperluan tandatangan Agong dan meterai DiRaja.

Adakah Agong menandatangani RUU ini secara sukarela; dan telah dinasihati dengan secukupnya?

Adakah Agong diberi maklum sepenuhnya bahawa RUU ini akan mengalihkan kuasa Agong kepada Ahli Parlimen yang diundi oleh rakyat?

Tun Dr. M Apologises For Changing Constitution

Tun Dr. Mahathir aggressively amended the Federal Constitution while he was Malaysia’s PM for 22 years. From 1981 to 2003.

This happened particularly during the years of 1983, 1993 and 1994.

In a rare admission of wrongdoing, Tun Dr. M made this apology on his website.

http://chedet.cc/?p=2234

“I would like to apologise for the amendment to the Constitution which made the approval and signature of the Yang di-Pertuan Agong (the King) no longer necessary for the legalising of an Act of Parliament.”

Malaysia’s Parliament *

Usually in a parliamentary democracy, the members of parliament (MPs) debate and vote to legislate bills.

Once it receives the Yang di-Pertuan Agong’s (King’s) signature and royal seal, the bill becomes an Act of Parliament.

In Tun Dr M’s case, the ruling coalition legislated several bills orchestrated with a bitter public campaign.

The objective was to remove the necessity and safeguard of the Agong’s (King’s) signature and royal seal.

Did the Agong (King) signed the legislation willingly; and was advised sufficiently?

Was the Agong (King) fully informed that this bill will shift his Majesty’s powers to the MPs elected by the people?

Does it mean theoretically that all 7 declarations can now be changed by a 2/3 Parliamentary vote?

I believe that these vital questions cannot be satisfactorily answered without the formation of a Royal Commission of Inquiry (RCI).

I humbly appeal to the Government of Malaysia to establish a RCI urgently.

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

Sultan Muhammad V bowing and conveying his respects to his mother Tengku Anis Tengku Abdul Hamid on 13th Dec 2016.

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?

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

The head of Malaysian police force’s counter-terrorism division Datuk Ayob Khan Mydin Pitchay

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
