The announcement would be made by the council's chairman, Prof Datuk Dr Abdul Shukor Husin, said Deputy Director-General (Operations) of the Department of Islamic Development Malaysia (Jakim) Othman Mustapha.
He told reporters this after opening the two-day seminar on Islamic Jurisprudence and Eternal Islamic Thinking at Universiti Sains Malaysia jointly organised by the Islamic Studies Division of the university's Human Knowledge Study Centre and Jakim here today.
Yesterday, lecturer Prof Zakaria Stapa of Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia's Islamic Studies Centre advised Muslims who have taken up yoga to stop practising it for fear that it could deviate their belief.-- BERNAMA
So now the national fatwa council members are idiots? Isn't that just plain disrespectful. It's like calling priests or spritual leaders bigots. Aiyo, Michelle Gunaselan. I don't like her KLUE monthly column at all. She's a racist bigot who plays the Liberal card more often than the amount of times I wank in a month.
I don't see the fuss is all about though. Pokemon was also once haram but I played it anyway with friends and when our Ustaz asked us what we were playing...
"Kamu main Pokemon yang haram tu ke?"
"Eh bukan, kami tengah main Doraemon ustaz..."
"Oh Doraemon, ingatkan Pokemon. Comel ye binatang
So let's say the Nat Fatwa haramkan Yoga, muslims can simply alter some parts of it like injecting Islamic elements like berzikir while meditating. When the Nat Fatwa council officers visit premises that practice Yoga....
"Ha! Kamu buat apa ni? Kamu tau tak yang Yoga
"Subhanallah, walhamdulillah, walailahaillah, allahuakbar"
"Cik, cik tak dengar ke....."
"Eh Ustaz, assalamualaikum. Kami tengah membuat Senaman Hadhari ni, bukan Yoga."
"Oh Senaman Hadhari yang diendorse Datin Seri Jeanne tu? Boleh kami sertai sekali?"
