I forgot to add this one little bit, in regards to some trivia of states’ songs that includes “Allah” in the lyrics and also any symbol that puts “Allah” and “Muhammad”.
I verily believe, during the time the lyrics were made, it was done in good faith that the sultans were (and still are) muslim, in which their God is Allah s.w.t. So, nothing really wrong there. So, it was done addressing to the God that the sultans’ believed in – Allah s.w.t.
Certainly it would be wrong, if the lyrics were done in manner praying for the sultans (who are muslim) to the other God than Allah, right? To those muslim asking this, are you referring Allah in that song implies to other God than Allah?
I think even the non-muslims know that “Allah” in the songs refers to “Allah” that muslims believed in.
As for the symbols that includes “Allah” and “Muhammad”, such as stated on PDRM’s and our army logos.
I think, again, this kind of argument can be mind blowing.
It was crystal clear stated “Allah” and “Muhammad” and some yet asking which “Allah” does the emblem/symbol/logo refers to? Which religion who believes in those names? Christians?
Kindly let me know, which religion other than Islam that believes Allah is the only God, and Muhammad is His Prophet.
If you do know, we can discuss this more.
Following up to yesterday’s press release, I admitted that I am know accepting PR’s stand on the word Allah issue.
However, I just needed some clarification on the “salah guna” or abuse on the word “Allah” as stated in TG Hj Hadi statement made in regards to this issue. I tweeted to few Pakatan Rakyat personnel, especially to PAS, needing clarifications on what type of abuse they meant.
Only one of them replied. That is YB Dr Mujahid. Please find below my interactions with him, until this morning.
(In english: as long as do not go against the practice and legislation used. The law will interprete. Read more on my article)
(In english: Q: I have read your MI (Malaysian Insider (can refer here) few times. What I can find is the word cannot be used in Peninsular. That is what stated, right? A: Before making any conclusion, understand the structure of the article. This isn’t court. I’m not saying cannot, but the issue is the Law.)
(in english: Q: Maybe YB can give 2,3 examples of abuse usage of word “Allah” like what TGHH has said? I don’t want to misunderstand based on my own assumption. A: equalizing Allah with our tauhid. Spreading their version of “Allah” to muslims, all of that stipulated in the law.)
Based on the above conversation, my own assumption is, not much different from what we have now, a status quo, whereby due to the law, “Allah” cannot be used in Peninsular, while in Sabah Sarawak, anyone can use.
But then again, you read, you interpret.
To YB Dr Mujahid, once again, thank you for responding and your cooperation is very much appreciated.
Question on the street: Are we clear so far on the ‘abuse’?
