“Innocence of Muslim”
Berkali-kali saya cuba untuk melihat video tersebut di YouTube. Namun masih belum ada rezeki kerana ada video yg telah “diblock” dan internet yg sngat lambat.
Tiba di India, hidup ibarat katak di bawak tempurung kerana tidak mengambil tahu keadaan di tempat lain. Bukan kerana pentingkan diri, tapi penyuasaian diri di tempat baru dan ketiadaan internet menyukarkan segala urusan.
Alhamdulillah mendpat internet, terus terkejut apabila keluar di facebook mahupun akhbar luar Negara yg mencemuh barat kerana video Innocence of Muslim yg dikatakan mengeji dan mengutuk Nabi junjungan umat Islam, Nabi Muhammad s.a.w. Segala puji dan selawat atas baginda.
Melihat komen-komen yang diberikan di facebook, youtube dan pelbagai info lagi, ramai pihak yang mengutuk perbuatan tersebut kerana ia seolah-olah mengutuk agama Islam. Ramai umat Islam bangkit, berasa marah, tidak senang duduk. Bukan sahaja di Malaysia, namun seluruh umat Islam di dunia.
Sememangnya, “jenayah” ini boleh dikatakan seolah-olah mencabar umat Islam. Jenayah ini membuat hati kita berasa sakit dan marah lebih-lebih lagi mereka yang betul2 menyayangi Baginda. Dan saya percaya, sekiranya umat Islam diajak untuk berperang bagi memelihara dan mempertahankan kemuliaan Baginda, sudah pasti ramai yang sanggup berkorban harta mahupun nyawa. Namun kita perlu ingat akan perkara-perkara yang diajar oleh Rasulullah s.a.w lebih-lebih lagi mengenai akhlak yang baik. Bukan ertinya kita hendak berlembut hati dan duduk diam pabila org mengutuk Baginda, tapi kita perlu tahu dan ingat bahawa Rasulullah s.a.w dijaga oleh Allah yang Memelihara dengan sebaik-baiknya. Allah berfirman,
“Sesungguhnya Kami tetap memelihara dan mengawalmu dari kejahatan orang-orang yang mengejek-ejek dan mempersendakanmu,” (Surah Al-Hijr 15:95)
Benar. Mereka yang mengutuk dan mengeji Rasulullah s.a.w berasa puas dan merasakan seolah-olah kejayaan di dalam tangan mereka kerana mereka Berjaya mencetuskan kemarahan dan mereka selamat mendapat “perlindungan” dari pihak tertentu. Tapi kita, umat Islam, perlu tahu bahawa ‘kemenangan’ yang mereka rasakan itu hanyalah sementara. Kerana Allah telah menjanjikan kemengan mutlak hanyalah untuk umat Islam.
“Sesungguhnya orang yang bencikan engkau, Dia lah yang terputus (dari mendapat sebarang perkara yang diingininya)” (Surah al-Kautsar 108:3)
Sebelum berbincang kepada perkara utama, terfikir sejenak kenapa ramai orang yang tidak faham akan Islam, mengutuk Islam habis-habisan? Hanya agama Islam. Tidak pernah lagi mendengar berita agama lain dihina dan dikutuk seteruk agama Islam.. Mengapa mereka begitu benci terhadap manusia teragung, Muhammad s.a.w??
Bagi saya, mereka mengeji Rasulullah saw kerana Rasulullah membawa seluruh manusia menyembah kepada Tuhan yang satu (konsep tauhid) sedangkan mereka tidak percaya kepada yang Satu dan ada yang tidak mempercayai adanya tuhan.
Mereka mengeji Rasulullah s.a.w kerana Rasulullah Berjaya menghapuskan sistem penindasan, judi, seks bebas dan perkara jahiliyah lain sedangkan mereka sejak nenek moyang lagi sudah mengamalkan perkara tersebut.
Mereka mengeji Rasulullah saw kerana Rasulullah melihat semua umat adalah sama tanpa melihat warna kulit, kaum, harta dan pangkat sedangkan sudah menjadi budaya mereka membezakan warna hitam dan putih, kaya dan miskin, dan mengamalkan system kasta yang sngat melampau.
Mereka mengeji Rasulullah kerana Rasulullah menjadi teladan dan role model terbaik umat Islam dari seluruh aspek akhlak, ibadat dan lain-lain sedangkan mereka lebih menyanjungi budaya buruk mereka.
Mereka berasa cemburu dengan umat Islam. Itu sahaja yang dapat saya katakan..
Mereka tidak kenal Rasulullah saw sebagaimana umat Islam kenal dan cinta kepada Baginda.
Pernahkan mereka mendengar kemuliaan keperibadian Rasulullah s.a.w?
Rasulullah membantu budak kecil, orang miskin, orang tua dan rmai lagi tanpa membezakan kedudukan dan agama.
Rasulullah saw membantu ramai orang yang menolak Islam scara terang-terangan.
Rasulullah membantu menyuapkan makanan kepada insan yang mencemuh Baginda setiap hari tanpa sebarang balasan.. Sehingga menangis Saidina Abu Bakar mendapat tahu peristiwa tersebut.
Terlalu banyak kemuliaan keperibadian Baginda.. menangis merindukan Baginda..
Dan pernahkan mereka mukjizat teragung Baginda, al-Quran yang diturunkan kepada seluruh manusia untuk membimbing dan menjadi panduan di muka bumi Allah ini..
Kitab yang jelas tiada kepalsuan kandungannya. Tidak percaya? Jika semua agama bersetuju untuk membuang semua kitab-kitab suci mereka ke dasar laut, berikan tempoh dalam sehari dua. Nescaya al-Quran akan kembali sediakala kerana adanya para hafiz dan hafizah di seluruh dunia. Bawalah hafiz dari Negara mana sekalipun, Malaysia, Indonesia, Arab Saudi, Mesir, Syria, palestin, amerika, dan banyak lagi, semuanya dapat membacakan dan menghafaz ayat yang sama… Jelas bahawa al-Quran adalah mukjizat teragung Rasulullah.
Bukan semuanya orang bukan Islam anti Islam. Untuk pengetahuan semua, ‘scholar’ dari Eropah, pemimpin terdahulu sngat menyanjungi dan mencontohi Rasulullah s.a.w.. dan mereka bukannya Bergama Islam..
Oleh kerana tidak mahu mengubah setiap perkataan, maka saya letakkan semuanya seperti yang dikatakan dalam buku-buku dan sumber internet lain.
Michael Hart said in his book The 100: A Ranking of the Most Influential Persons in History (p. 13), where he put Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) at the head of his list of one hundred:
I chose Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) to be top of this list … because Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) was the only man in history who was supremely successful on both the religious and secular levels.
The Englishman George Bernard Shaw wrote a book called Muhammad, which was burned by the British authorities. He said:
The world is in the utmost need of a man with the mentality of Muhammad.
Medieval ecclesiastics, either through ignorance of bigotry, painted Mohammadanism in the darkest colors. They were in fact; trained to hate both the man Muhammad and his to them was anti-Christ. But I have studied his life, and found him to be extraordinary. I have reached the conclusion that he was never an enemy to Christianity. He must be called the Saviour of Humanity. I believe that if a man like him were to assume the dictatorship of the modern world, he would succeed in solving its problems in a way that would bring it much needed peace and happiness.
Annie Besant said:
It is impossible for anyone who studies the life and character of the great Prophet of Arabia, who knows how he taught and how he lived, to feel anything but reverence for that mighty Prophet, one of the great messengers of the Supreme.
The Austrian Schabrak said:
Mankind may be proud of having a man like Muhammad among them, for despite being illiterate he was able more than ten centuries ago to introduce legislation that we Europeans would be the happiest ever if we could produce something of equally high quality.
Dr. Zwemer (a Canadian Orientalist):
Muhammad was an able reformer, eloquent and well spoken, courageous and daring, a great thinker. We cannot attribute to him anything that contradicts these qualities. This Qur’aan that he brought and his history bear witness to the truth of these claims.
The English philosopher Thomas Carlyle, the Nobel Prize winner, says in his book Heroes:
It is very shameful for any individual in this era to listen to what is said about the religion of Islam being a fabrication and Muhammad being a treacherous fabricator. Throughout his life we see him holding firm beliefs, sincere in resolve, generous and kind, compassionate, pious, virtuous, very serious. In spite of that, he was easy-going, cheerful, friendly, and even sometimes light-hearted. He was just, sincere in intention, smart, chivalrous, and quick-witted, as if he carried in his heart the lamps of every dark night, filled with light; a naturally great man who never studied in school or at the hand of a teacher, because he had no need of that.
Goethe, the German poet, said:
We Europeans with all our concepts and ideas have not yet attained that which Muhammad attained, and no one will ever surpass him. I searched in history for the loftiest example for man to follow, and I found it in the Prophet Muhammad. Thus the truth must prevail and become supreme, because Muhammad succeeded in subjugating the whole world by means of the message of Divine Oneness.
If that is the case, then the entire world – with no alternative – must regard the greatness of Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) among all of creation above all greatness, and his virtue above all virtues, and his status as greater than any other. The world must unite in believing in the message of Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him), and that he is the Final Prophet of Allaah.
We would like to make the most of this opportunity to call these people to Islam, for what their sinful hands have fabricated cannot be erased except by Islam. But if they are stubborn and persist in their ways, then let them receive tidings of the punishment of Hell, to abide therein forever.
Bahawasanya sesiapa yang mempersekutukan Allah dengan sesuatu yang lain, maka sesungguhnya Allah haramkan kepadanya Syurga, dan tempat kembalinya ialah neraka; dan tiadalah seorang penolong pun bagi orang-orang yang berlaku zalim. (Surah al-Maidah 5:72)
Dan sesiapa yang mencari agama selain agama Islam, maka tidak akan diterima daripadanya, dan ia pada hari akhirat kelak dari orang-orang yang rugi. (Surah al-Imran 3:85)
In this section, im writing in English for make my words brief and concise. Not lengthy to be read
In my opinion, there follow some of the good things that have resulted from this sinful crime.
What was concealed in the hearts of these criminals, such as resentment and hatred of the Muslims, has been made known, even though they pretend most of the time to be peaceful.
“Hatred has already appeared from their mouths, but what their breasts conceal is far worse”
[Al Imran 3:118]
Exposure of the West’s double standards. Here they cite freedom of opinion, but every wise man knows that this so-called freedom of opinion should stop before violating the sanctity of others and transgressing against them. They are lying in their claims of freedom of opinion. We all remember what happened a few years ago when one government decided to destroy the idols in their country; there was a global outcry! What about this so-called freedom of opinion? Why don’t they regard this also as freedom of opinion? They encourage the “Freedom of Hate” not “Freedom of Speech”
The falseness of their claim with which they have filled the world, namely the dialogue of civilizations that is based on respect for others and not transgressing against them. What kind of dialogue do they want?! What respect do they claim to show? They want us to respect them and honour them, and even to bow and prostrate to them, but all they do is make fun of us and mock us and wrong us even more.
Reviving faith in Muslim hearts. We have seen the Muslims’ reaction which is indicative of deeply-rooted faith in their hearts and the extent of their love for the Prophet saw; even among those who neglect some religious duties leapt to defend our noble Messenger saw.
Uniting the Muslims. We have seen – praise be to Allaah – solidarity among the Muslims who have adopted the same stance despite the differences in their countries and languages. In Malaysia, UMNO and PAS are united for the sake of our Prophet and Islam. Alhamdulillah.
It has become apparent that the West is ganging up against Islam. As soon as that country sought the help of their fellow, they all stood up to support that country and the criminals encouraged one another to publish these pictures in their newspaper, so that the Muslims would know that they are all united and that we cannot confront them all.
Some Muslims were keen to call these people to Islam and to show them the true image of this religion. We have seen Muslims racing to publish books in the language of these people so that the scales will fall from their eyes and they may see clearly.
The effectiveness of Muslim boycotts against the products of those who transgressed against the Prophet saw has been proven. Their nation did not respond to any official or political requests, even at the highest levels, but the boycott did not last more than a few days before the newspaper that was in the wrong and its chief editor offered apologies and changed their tone, so the Muslims softened their stance somewhat.
This appears to be the new weapon of the Muslims, that they can use to influence and harm their enemies.
A clear message was sent to the West: that we Muslims will never accept to see our religion insulted or humiliated, or any transgression against our Messenger (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him). We will all sacrifice ourselves for him.
As for our role in all of this:
We must denounce it forcefully, each of us according to our own abilities, by sending letters and articles, or making phone calls, to their government, foreign affairs departments and newspapers. As we know, the media is the most influential in the world to convey people
We should demand a clear and sincere apology from them, not deception or justification of the crime which they call an apology. We do not want an apology for showing disrespect towards the Muslims; rather we want an admission of error and an apology for that error.
We should request them to punish the criminals for their crime.
We should also request them to stop their governments’ transgressions against Islam and the Muslims.
We should translate books that call to Islam into the language of these people, and books that explain about Islam and its Prophet, and his biography. This is more important than demonstration or others. Just imagine.. 10000 people out for demonstration in front of the embassy causing more trouble rather than its benefits compared to 10000 people out to every places such as shopping complex or any crowded areas explaining and give a brochure about Islam, Muhammad s.a.w and Quran.
We should buy time on radio and television programs to defend the Prophet s.a.w, which should be hosted by people of ability and well-founded knowledge, who know how to speak convincingly to Westerners, of whom there are many, praise be to Allah.
We should write strongly worded articles to be published in magazines, newspapers and web sites in various languages. If you have facebook, update your statuses with useful things.. Write in your blog, twitter, wordpress or etc. Use your own abilities to convey the message such as ‘I LOVE MY PROPHET MUHAMMAD SAW’
Boycott? There is pandemic in internet that we must boycott Google, Chroome, dan Youtube for 3 days. With regard to boycotting their products, if the boycott will have an effect on them – which is what actually happens – then why don’t we boycott them and look for other companies that are owned by Muslims? There are so many choices to be choose.. It is our own responsibility whether we want or not. Think!!
We should resist this malicious attack against Islam and its Prophet; by highlighting the beauty of Islam and the fact that it is in accordance with sound reasoning, and responding to the specious arguments of the criminals.
We should adhere to the Sunnah and follow the guidance of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) in all things, and be patient in doing so.
“But if you remain patient and become Al-Muttaqoon (the pious), not the least harm will their cunning do to you”
[Al Imran 3:120]
We should strive to call these people, for although we look at them through a lens of hatred and resentment, we also look at them with compassion, for soon they will die and will be among the people of Hell, if they die in this state; so we should call them to Islam and salvation, out of mercy and compassion towards them.
We ask Allah to cause His religion to prevail and to support His close friends, and to humiliate His enemies.
“And Allah has full power and control over His Affairs, but most of men know not”
again… demonstration is not my choice..
Allah knows the best.
Selawat dan salam ke atas Rasul junjungan, Muhammad s.a.w.
“I LOVE MY PROPHET MUHAMMAD SAW”
