All Will Appear Before The Almighty In The Court Of Heaven

4s_All Will Appear Before The Almighty In Heaven's Court

Indeed, the king shoulders a heavy mandate entrusted to him.

The fulfilment of his role is not only judged by the people of this world.

But he will also be judged in Padang Mahsyar in the time to come.

In Rabbuljalil’s Court, in the presence of ALLAH.

At that time, the King will have no defense lawyers.

At that time, the King will have to rely on his obedience and good works which will be his defence.

 

# Nyatalah Raja mendukung amanah berat; peranannya bukan sahaja dinilai oleh warga di dunia ini, tetapi akan turut diadili di Padang Mahsyar nanti. Di Mahkamah Rabbuljalil, berhadapan ALLAH Yang Maha Esa, Raja ketika itu sudah tidak ada Peguam Negara; ketika itu Raja juga bergantung kepada amal makruf yang telah disempurnakan untuk menjadi Peguam Belanya.

Something Very Strange Is Going On – Public Caning In Malaysia

On 13th July 2017, the Kelantan State Legislative Assembly unanimously passed an amendment to the Syariah Criminal Procedure Enactment 2002. However, this revised enactment has yet to receive royal assent.

This was to allow caning in full public view for Syariah offences which were previously witnessed only by prison officials. Four types of offences include sodomy, illicit sex (zina), alcohol consumption and false accusation of zina. Law applicable for Muslims only.

As a non-Muslim and a concerned Malaysian, these are my observations.

1 Aceh Public-Caning - Cameras

1. Caning In Aceh – Reverting From ‘Public’ To Private

Two months ago, Aceh (Indonesia) implemented ‘public’ canings in response to demands by its Islamic hardliners. Since then, canings were carried out in full public view in front of the mosque after prayers for Syariah offenders.

2 20170716 Nst - Aceh may make canings private

Why is Aceh now reverting the ‘public’ canings back to the privacy of prison walls? Has our Muslim scholars, politicians and assemblymen consulted the Muftis in Aceh as to enquire what went wrong?

3 Surah 24.2

2. What Does The Holy Qu’ran Say?

“The (unmarried) woman or (unmarried) man found guilty of sexual intercourse – lash each one of them with a hundred lashes, and do not be taken by pity for them in the religion of ALLAH, if you believe in ALLAH and the Last Day. And let a group of the believers witness their punishment.” Surah 24:2

FYI, the videos and images of the ‘public’ canings in my blog are sourced from Google, Facebook and Youtube. What does the “group of believers” mean? Does it include ALL the 7 billion people in the world today?

I note that the punishment of caning is stipulated (only for zina) and necessary for moral education. But what about caning in full public view in the Internet era? Is that why Aceh is retreating so fast?

Then why are PAS and UMNO politicians pushing ahead and blatantly ignoring the facts? What are their real motives?

3. The Internet Is Forever

If the new enactments receive royal assent, Kelantan will be the only state in Malaysia and in the world which mandate canings implemented ‘publicly’. I have omitted the ISIS in Iraq and Raqqa Syria because many Muslims don’t even consider them Islamic.

While Syariah offenders in other Malaysian states will undergo ‘private’ canings thus sparing them the public humiliation from the unbelievers.

4 caning

Imagine the shame, opprobrium, disgrace and dishonour borne by the Muslimin and Muslimat. To be a hot topic of discussion amongst the non-believers. In the neighbourhood, in the marketplace and in the office. Is this what the Holy Qu’ran commanded?

The lashings are video-recorded on Facebook and Youtube; to be viewed by millions. “Selama-lamanya”, forever is a very long time. Try Google image searching with the keywords “Aceh” or “Islamic State” and “caning”.

4. Malaysia’s Supreme King

As The Yang DiPertuan Agong of Malaysia, Sultan Muhammad V is the Head of ISLAM for Kelantan, Federal Territories, Penang, Melaka, Sabah and Sarawak.

5a sultan kelantan

Sultan Muhammad V is deeply loved by the people of Malaysia. It is true that His Majesty has a very special place in the hearts of the Kelantanese.

5b sultan kelantan

Is it because the Kelantanese are so loved that they are given far exceeding than the doctor’s prescribed dosage?

Is caning done publicly for full viewing for the unbelievers (ready with their mobiles and camcorders), only for Kelantan’s ummah’s own good?

How will His Majesty explain to his subjects….. that Muslims in Kelantan are different from the Muslims in FT, Penang, Melaka, Sabah and Sarawak….. hence they deserve different treatments.

5. Time To Expose Secret Agendas

What are the PAS and UMNO politicians secretly thinking? Something very strange is going on. Indeed!!!

Don’t they know that this amendment will disconnect the Kelantanese grassroots from their Malay Ruler?

Don’t they know that enactment (if passed into law) will discolour the international image of our beloved King, the YDP AGONG who is the Head of ISLAM in the Nation-State of Malaysia?

PAS & UMNO politicians claims to champion the royal institution and uphold the dignity of ISLAM. But their political posturing have a hidden agenda.

6. Judicial Discretion For Whom?

Kelantan’s Deputy Chief Minister Datuk Mohd Amar Nik Abdullah says, “Caning can now be carried out inside prison or outside prison, depending on court decision.”

6 20170713 Star - Kelantan whips up a storm

This means that the Syariah Court Magistrate or Judge has the discretionary power, to vary, to be selective – as to who receives publicity.

This leads to the unhealthy inference and (mis)perception; rightly or wrongly; that the rich and powerful (offenders) could receive favourable treatment.

Neither PAS or UMNO politicians have explained why the Judicial exception (or escape clause) is present if ‘public’ caning is a divine command as they so claimed. Where is the perception of fairness; that all Muslims are equal before the Islamic law?

7 20170714 Star - Zahid_Keep it in perspective

Deputy PM Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi is not addressing the real issues. Obviously this new law does not apply to non-Muslims.

7. Prime Minister’s Office

The Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) have failed to exercise thought leadership on behalf of His Majesty, our beloved AGONG.

Perhaps it is now time to establish His Majesty’s royal think-tank which is independent of the PMO or politicians.

Patriotic thought leaders who are loyal to His Majesty’s cause will answer the call to chart the future of Malaysia.

Democracy And Republic ~ Part 4 of 7

4 - Democracy 1

I have chosen these topics because many of our peers in this generation are born after World War II. Many issues need to be considered in perspective and context.

In the written history of mankind, most of the countries in the world have always been ruled by monarchs or kings.

After World War 2 ended in 1945, many nations started transitioning to new forms of government – being democracies and republics.

In these new forms of government; the majority vote of the nation’s citizens in General Elections determine:-

* the kind of State laws that they want to govern themselves;

* the leaders that they want to lead the State.

4 - Federal Constitution

Constitutional Monarchy

In a democracy, the king is retained as the Head of State.

The extend of powers of the king is as defined in the State Constitution.

In a republic, the President is elected to function as the Head of State.

Singapore’s President has strong veto powers to block the abuse of the nations’ strategic financial reserves.

Both the #Democracy and #Republic State Constitution define that the three branches of government serve under the #Monarch or the #President respectively.

 

The Three Branches Of Government.

The doctrine of the separation of powers is to provide the constitutional checks and balances. This is for the proper functioning of the State.

It ensures that each branch of government acts with integrity; and effectively; and without the abuse of its defined powers.

4 - Najib

(I) The Executive. The Prime Minister is usually the head of the coalition of political parties. He appoints his cabinet of ministers, usually from his allies who are legislators in the Parliament.

4 - Parliament

(II) The Parliament. Members of Parliament are voted in by the people during General Elections. MPs legislate new laws or amend current laws to be enacted into the Acts of Parliament.

4 Judiciary laws 2

(III) The Courts. Judges are appointed by the Head of State/ The Yang Di-Pertuan Agong. The Judiciary interpret the laws of Parliament and makes judicial judgments to be enforced. The Courts can also rule against the Executive or the Legislative Assembly.

Will RUU355 Affect The Prestige And Powers Of The Malay Sultans?

RUU355 LATEST DEVELOPMENTS

* A few days ago, Ex-Member of Parliament Tawfik Ismail filed a lawsuit.

* The court papers were served to the Parliament Speaker Tan Sri Pandikar Amin (BN).

* Seeking the court’s declaration that the proposed RUU355 were done with irregularities.

* PAS carelessly neglected to obtain the prior approval of the Conference of Rulers/ Majlis Raja-Raja.

* The nine Malay Sultans are the head of the religion of Islam in their respective STATES.

* The administration of Islamic matters are the sole and exclusive prerogative of the Sultan in his own STATE.

2. Aliran
https://aliran.com/archives/monthly/2005a/2h.html

< “In Malaysia, Islam is a STATE matter. The Sultan is the head of religion in his own STATE. The Yang di-Pertuan Agong is the head of religion in his own STATE as well as the head of religion in the Federal Territories and all STATES without a Sultan. Since religion is a STATE matter, family and personal laws governing Muslims as well as laws relating to religious offences are promulgated by the respective STATES in the Federation, rather than by Parliament. Parliament can only pass legislation on such matters when it comes to the Federal Territories. The manner in which Islamic affairs are organized at the STATE level is laid out in the Administration of Muslim Law Enactments. These STATE-based Enactments are generally similar in content – but not identical to one another.” >

 

3. RPK RUU355

My comments:-
Many of us have been caught up by this idea popularized by RPK, the King of Bloggers. He says that RUU355 is down to “Muslims versus non-Muslims”. But, is it really true?

The haze is starting to dissipate and the dust is settling down.

Now, RUU355 is beginning to look like a battle between “The Malay Politicians and the Malay Royalists”. (The rulers themselves will never get involved in politics.)

Religion is only the packaging. It is about WHO WINS POWER and who loses power after the enactment of RUU355.

The sooner this realization sinks in, the sooner the shape of the battle will change strategically.

Did RPK Bite Off More Than He Could Chew?

The King of bloggers strikes again. Raja Petra Kamaruddin fondly known as “RPK” made some serious allegations on his webpage Malaysia Today.

RPK’s article in question.
http://www.malaysia-today.net/jahabar-is-guan-engs-get-out-of-jail-card/

His targets ~
* DAP Supremos ~ Lim Kit Siang and Lim Guan Eng
* The Malaysian Insight Founder ~ Jahabar Sadiq

Apandi Ali

The Collateral Damage
Malaysia’s Attorney General The Honourable Tan Sri Dato’ Sri Haji Mohamed Apandi bin Haji Ali.

What RPK actually said,

<“The RM40 million is not just to finance The Malaysian Insight. It is a ‘package deal’ that Kit Siang made with Jahabar Sadiq to get him to use to his brother-in-law, Mohamed Apandi Ali, the Attorney General, to keep Guan Eng out of jail.

….. An even bigger question is will Apandi dare get Guan Eng acquitted? The evidence against Guan Eng is air-tight and there is no way he can escape. The only way Guan Eng can escape would be if Apandi rigged his trial.”>

 

How will AG Apandi Ali respond to the blogger’s insinuation to his integrity? What about protecting the integrity of the justice system in Malaysia?

We should not prejudge or rule out anything yet. Just patiently wait and see.
