Why not? Why?
I heard a protester on TV3 saying "Kenapa mereka guna nama Allah? Kenapa dari dulu mereka guna nama Jesus yang bermaksud trinity, tuhan, anak tuhan dan roh-roh suci dan sekarang mahu guna nama Allah?"
My initial response to his statement was "Bongok betul manusia ini." Go study history buddy.
Many christians in Sabah use the term Allah in their respective churches. When I was resting on the highest peak of Mount Kinabalu, a group of christian club members uttered their prayers and used the term Allah. I wasn't angry. I felt very at ease. They were worshipping the same god that I do. I felt like god is universal, that everyone of the ibrahim religions are worshipping the same god. And we actually do. We just have different methods of doing so.
Why did some NGOs need to protest the decision made by court? I think because they think Allah is term exclusive only for muslims. Allah is for all, make no doubt about that. Why are they so protective of a name that represents the highest power that we all live by?
Nak berjihad konon. Nak berjihad ada tempatnya geng. Berjihad dalam kerja, profesyen dan minat masing-masing. Berjihad untuk menjadi insan yang lebih baik. Itulah jihad yang sebenar.
I applaude the court for allowing the use of Allah in churces. Why not? Why are some muslims feels so threatened by this court decision? We are not in the olden days people. Perang salib is behind us. We know now that the war was politically motivated.
The protesters are showing a disgraceful example of some muslims' stand on their religion. Islam is not a cult nor is it group. It is a way of life. Protecting the use of the name Allah, claiming it to be exclusive to muslims is unislamic. Very unislamic.
Be a true muslim and share your love and peace and understanding to everyone, no matter what their religion.
Okay? Sekarang tolong bersurai, you're jamming the road!
