Is Malaysia An Islamic Nation? Part 7 of 7

I admit that this topic has been the subject of intense debate in the social media. Let’s examine the clues to the perplexing question.

(I) The Head of the nine Malay States are Muslim Rulers.

(II) The majority of the citizens of Malaysia are Muslims.

(III) The official religion of Malaysia’s Constitution is ISLAM.

(IV) The Supreme King, The Yang Di-Pertuan Agong (YDPA) is Muslim.

My Humble Opinion

This is my personal opinion that as at 31st August 1957, our Independence Day.

* The Malay Rulers had ceded only the civil administration of the Government;

* The Malay Rulers have fully retained their responsibilities as the Head of ISLAM, which is the official religion of Malaysia.

* Based on the above (I), (II), (III) and (IV), I am fully convinced that Malaysia is an Islamic nation.

* Muslims have the inalienable right to be governed by Islamic laws and such laws like RUU355 does not apply to non-Muslims.

Islam in Malaysia is represented by the Shafi’i version of SUNNI theology and jurispudence. In layman’s term, this is a moderate and progressive form of ISLAM endorsed by the Malay Rulers.

I am also grateful that non-Muslims in Malaysia are accorded the freedom of faith and worship. Hence, all other religions and its adherents must grant Islam the rightful place of esteem and respect.

Final Message

We are well aware that politicians in Malaysia face a huge perception of mega corruption. There has been social talk that if the current civil government falls in GE14, hence ISLAM will also fall. This is absolutely nonsense.

Our Malay Sultans and The Yang Di-Pertuan Agong is the strong bastion and defender of ISLAM. The position of the Malay Rulers and the preeminence of ISLAM is enshrined immutable in our Constitution.

Malaysia must not sink in the sea of corruption. We must break away from the past. Without our corrupt politicians.

His Royal Majesty Sultan Muhammad V, The Supreme Ruler Of Malaysia, DULI YANG MAHA MULIA SERI PADUKA BAGINDA YANG DIPERTUAN AGONG.

This auspicious date was also chosen to coincide with the Islamic calendar of Israq and Mikraj which is a physical and spiritual journey.

It speaks of the journey and ascension of PROPHET MUHAMMAD through the seven levels of heaven to meet with ALLAH his Creator.

This reflects on His Royal Majesty’s deep devotion to ISLAM and his desire to rule the nation of Malaysia with righteousness and justice.

Malaysia is richly blessed with the righteous rule of the 15th AGONG since the founding of the Federation of the Malay states in 1957.

The Grand Chamberlain of The Royal Palace presented a golden copy of the AL-QU’RAN to His Royal Majesty at the beginning of the ceremony.

His Royal Majesty kissed the AL-QU’RAN with devotion – this was a meaningful and symbolic gesture.

It depicts the role of the King as HEAD of the Islamic religion of the Federal Territories and four states that do not have a Malay Sultan.

Daulat Tuanku, Keagongan Tuanku Keemasan Gemilang

NEW

Sopan santun budaya perwira Melayu,

Setia mempertahankan takhta RAJA MELAYU.

Denyutan jantung menjunjung kasih TUANKU,

Patik rela mengorban segalanya demi TUANKU.

 

Dimana rakyat menderita penyamun memerangkap,

Disitu keRAJAan TUANKU, pengganas ditangkap.

RAJA MELAYU jelas penyayang, pelindung rakyat.

Keamanan terjamin, ditakdir kemakmuran rakyat.

 

Rakyat Malaysia sekian menyanjungi tinggi TUANKU.

Kami berdoa ALLAH memberkati pemerintahan TUANKU.

DAULAT TUANKU, KEMULIAAN TUANKU TIDAK TERBILANG.

DAULAT TUANKU, KEAGONGAN TUANKU KEEMASAN GEMILANG.
