Hadi Awang in his political sermon today touched on the ‘Sneaky Bastards’ (these are my words; the PAS president had described them as “bijak seperti Iblis”).
Hadi said these people “tidak layak mendapat hidayah” and contrasting them with PAS’s nawaitu untuk “terus beristiqamah atas asas aqidah”.
He additionally mentioned “para ulama’ ahli Kitab yang dimurkai oleh Allah SWT kerana berilmu tetapi mengkhianati ilmunya”, i.e. the preachers from the People of the Book yang terpesong, as being among the iblis bijak.
However, “golongan bukan Islam yang tidak ekstrem” are welcome to join the perpaduan ummah movement “bagi menyelamatkan negara”, Hadi added.
While Hadi did not today specify who and what Muafakat are supposed to be saving Malaysia from, it is safe to assume he is signaling — at least in part — that Malay Muslims need to be saved from having their faith deviated for example, in the current kalimah Allah hot button issue.
In the past, Hadi and his fellow PAS ulama have pointed to the evangelists as being the non Muslims who are extreme in pushing for the kalimah Allah to be used by Christians here.
The Islamist party also “menolak kumpulan yang menunjukkan tiada kesetiaan kepada negara dengan sifat melampau yang mencabar agama dan bangsa”.
