Its been a very tiring week for me since I have 2 night classes this week. I kept on telling myself that its worth it. I hope my hard work will pay off when I see my students excel in their life and discipline later on.
This week I met with an Ustaz Azhar nearby my house at Kerinchi. I have some talk to him. He seems very knowledgeable. I hope to learn from him. At first we talked about the normal stuff (fikh issues) then about politics and politics in Islamic view. I am quite happy that my views is about the same as his. However I am quite sad when this conversation happen:
Ustaz: Awak biasanya belajar di mana?
Saya: Oh, jika saya sempat saya pergi kuliah-kuliah sekitar area KL. Contohnya di al-Khadeem ngan Hussein Yee. Kadang-kadag kat IIS di Setiawangsa.
Ustaz: Yang setiawangsa tu ok tapi Hussein Yee ni saya nasihatkan janganla... (sambil menggoyang-goyangkan kepala)
At that moment I was dunno wat to say already. So many questions is in my head. How can someone with Islamic knowledge like him say say such thing. How can you say bad things about another brother that helps to spread Islam? Have he ever met Hussein Yee.
I dont know wat to say so I say: 'Tak apa ustaz, biasanya saya ada buat rujukan.'
Again another Muslim is called a Wahabi. Usually those with not much of education will do so. What was running in my head was how can you label someone 'Wahabi' if you do not know what the word is? Watever shitty accusation of these people is not true at all. They say that wahabi say this and that. When I went to hear the 'kuliah' of the so called wahabi, I only find them preaching the al-Quran and Sunnah.
Even though sometimes it if different from the Shafie mazhab but they explained it clearly on the discussion among the Imams, scholars etc and the hadiths involved. I can only see al-sunnah wal jamaah here. No such thing as wahabi.
Dont these people know that the Syiahs have been using this word to label us the Sunnis? So that we will be scared and fall into their trap. The Syiahs trap.
Its so sad....
Anyway I would like to thank sis Aliya for this award:
