Isu penggunaan kalimah Allah


Ibn Qayyim kemudiannya menjelaskan lagi bahawa penamaan Allah itu
menunjukkan bahawa Dia (Allah) adalah sebagai Yang dipertuhankan dan
disembah. Dipertuhankan oleh semua makhluk dengan penuh kecintaan,
pengagungan, ketundukan dan berlindung kepada-Nya dalam semua hajat dan
musibah yang menimpa.
Inilah sebenarnya maksud di sebalik kalimah Allah SWT. Ia bukanlah satu kalimah
yang sekadar menjadi sebutan atau seruan atau panggilan bagi tuhan semata-mata.
Sebaliknya ia merupakan nama yang melambangkan aqidah atau agama bagi orang
yang menggunakannya. Oleh itu penggunaannya amat wajar dipantau dan dipelihara
oleh kerajaan demi memastikan tiada sesiapa yang terkeliru dengan nama Yang
Maha Agung itu.

That was from an article from Cawangan Aqidah, Bahagian Penyelidikan Jakim. It can be downloaded from the net, in the PDF format. After the celebration of new year pasts, and the enthusiasm of Malaysian to welcome the year, in a better economy state, this issues bombarded the country just like those firecrakcers lighted on those new years nights. It was all over media then about those arson bombing in several places over our country.

It began when The High Court allows the usage of the word Allah, to pardon the application from the Herald Catholic newspaper. And some days after that there were many blogs, and articles written due to this. Some wrotes, the word Allah could be used by anyone to refer God. Some says, the word Allah has been used by non Muslim since like forever. While some other features hadith, the meaning, the discussion on how holy the word is.

To me, this is a very sensitive issue in our country. Maybe, The High Court allows this, maybe after referring some reliable sources, that is not wrong to be used by non Muslims. And the meaning however still goes to the Almighty God. But the thing is, have they ever consider the aftermath of the decision. There’ll be speculation, misunderstanding, misguidance of the usage, and name it.. there’ll be thousands of unsatisfied groups of people. The arson bombing might just be the introduction of it. after the bombing, societies and goverment put all their effort to offer security to churches, this then also leads to antipathy to Muslims (like, wah.. hebatnya nak protect church… masjid tak pernah nak protect pun.. u see what i mean??) So many people have been questioning, throw the same thing – why on earth does Herald wanted to use the word Allah, since it has never been used before by non Muslims in our country. Why dont Herald comes out, make a PC or something (PC- Press conference) or at least explain whay they want to use it after all, if it is not for misguiding the Muslims.

However, from PGSM website (Persatuan Peguam Syarie Malaysia) it was annouces this –
Masyarakat Islam menarik nafas lega dan memanjatkan kesyukuran kepada Allah apabila membaca pengumuman Menteri di Jabatan Perdana Menteri Datuk Dr Abdullah Mohd Zain yang menafikan kerajaan membenarkan penerbitan akhbar Herald- The Catholic Weekly

Can this close the case? I dont think so .. what do you think ?????

    The non-muslims are forever trying to make fun of the Muslims, what did we do to them? I say we the Muslims should really fight against this, jihad. Don't let them think they can rule over Islam.

    kita perlu melihat ini dari perspektif kesan terhadap masa depan anak-anak kita jika kita tak kisah dgn penggunaannya skg dan tidak tegas terhadapnya. bila penggunaan kalimah Allah disalah guna..yg menjadi mangsa secara kita tak sedar ialah anak2 kita sendiri…mohon dijauhkan..

    ya, mmg betul. the non muslims are making fun on the Muslim. I cant blame them 100%. Tgk la, diorang intoduce fesyen, kit aikut. diroang introduce budaya barat, kita ikut. Diorang introduce mcm2 makanan shubhah, kita makan jugak. Sampai satu tahap mcm ni- kita baru tersedar.. dan dah susah nak berpusing balik. Ya.. apa yg kita decide hari ini . anak2 kita yang terima padahnya satu hari nanti. semoga kita semua terlindung dan semoga Allah melindungi agama Islam. dan sekirannya kita ingin berjihad utk isu ini. bagaimana ya???

    i believe that by sharing our voice and taking a position is already a form jihad, InshaAllah.What i think is that perhaps the Church themselves should seriously rethink whether using the term Allah to represent their concept of God is the best choice for their own Christian followers. Wouldn't that confuse their own followers?But if they or anyone for that matter do accept Allah as the only one God, with no son, father nor a holy spirit, then that should mean that they accept the Islamic faith, and may Allah guide them to the path of Islam.As for us, I believe we as individual Muslims hold the key in teaching Islam to our family, children, and our generations to come. Dengan adanya Al-Quran and Sunnah, and Muslims who practice the religion, we need to restore our faith that Allah akan melindungi ummat Islam dan agama Islam. And while reading Tun M's post, I agree that the government has to very carefully handle such sensitive issues to both religions. We'll leave that to the pros.Wallahu'alam.
