Bersambung dari ‘The Star thinks Malays are stupid’.
Saya difahamkan bahawa puasa bulan Ramadan adalah satu rukun Islam dan ia harus dikerjakan dengan tawaduk.
But what do I know? I’m after all a non-Muslim.
For some who however know better than me like Marina Mahathir (pic above) for instance, and the evangelistas-overnight-experts-in-Islam, all the races fasting together is done for the purpose of promoting “national unity”.
Non-Muslims berpuasa is also a social media event to be blogged about and tweeted incessantly.
Siapa diwajibkan berpuasa?
Below is a recent photo of DAP bigwigs; emphasis on the first part of the word ‘BIGwigs’.
Some of them harus berpuasa (go on a diet), i.e. if we take the connotation of the now social word “#sahur” which the non-Muslims have hijacked and imposed on the istilah ‘puasa’.
the evangelistas like to sindir “Big Mama” (Rosmah)
The law of karma is ‘What goes around, comes around’.
Now what happens when a politukus DAP evangelis selalu mahu menghadiri mahupun sendiri mengadakan/menganjur majlis berbuka puasa di surau-surau dan masjid-masjid?
Below are some makan-makan pictures:
And the result …
A feast is also called a “spread”, for example, a buffet spread like those you have in acara-acara meraikan dif kehormat serentak dan seiring berbuka, and those spreads hosted in Hotel Bintang Lima.
However when one indulges in too many majlis berbuka without remembering to berpuasa in the first place, then the spread inevitably takes place in the bottom half of one’s self.
See picture below. The DAP evangelista politician is the one in grey tudung and peach baju kurung.
Back view and side view
The J-Star promoting
non-Muslims to join the Islamic fast
Marina Mahathir’s column in The J-Star was headlined ‘Fostering unity through fasting‘. She and the Jerusubang paper and their Scissorati had organized a social media publicity event called ‘Fast4Malaysia’ for the non-Muslims to join in the Ramadan ibadah.
Marina wrote in the Jerusubang paper yesterday that “in fact in spite of the many upsetting events during Ramadan, there was still much that we can celebrate as Malaysians”.
Yup, she got that right at least. Malaysians, particularly the evangelistas whose credo is “anything you can do, I can do better (including #sahur and berpuasa)” are celebrating Syawal.
EXCERPTS from Marina Mahathir’s column
“About 60 of us woke up at 4.30am to gather at a 24-hour eatery in Bangsar to have sahur … One young Chinese man came alone and was immediately invited by a young Malay family to sit with them. Another young woman drove all the way from Shah Alam to join in. Two Indian women happened to walk in the same restaurant without knowing what was happening but decided to join in when they learnt why we were there.
“There was a sense of camaraderie among us that was truly unifying.
“Some first-timers were nervous about how they would cope but everyone else assured them it would be fine. All day on social media like Twitter, people encouraged each other.
“Many young Muslims were thrilled and fascinated that their non-Muslim friends were joining them in the fast that day and gave many tips on how to manage the hunger.
“Non-Muslims chatted all day about their experience. They uploaded photos of what they ate at sahur and then later on photos of themselves breaking the fast with family and friends. […]
“Many blogged about their experience which was overwhelmingly positive. […]
“Perhaps they should look up the #Fast4Malaysia Tumblr site to see how civil society can unite Malaysians in the sort of organic way that politicians cannot. There were no financial inducements, no sponsorship, no T-shirts involved. […]
“The main outcome was something no politician nor even religious leader could have engendered, mutual respect. Non-Muslim Malaysians, having fasted themselves, renewed their respect for their Muslim fellow citizens who do this for a whole month each year.
“Muslim Malaysians, in return, gained a new respect for their non-Muslim compatriots for attempting something which they had no obligation to perform. Both sides experienced something very precious for one another, empathy.”
Your Ramadan is my celebration month.
Your surau is now my surau, your masjid my masjid.
Your Allah is also my Allah.
