Review: Robin Hood

Between Iron Man 2 and Robin Hood, I choose Robin Hood because it is historical (some say it’s mythical) but I believe it is partly true because Robin had lived in disguise.Robin Hood provokes issues and some thinking.

During my childhood, I watched Robin Hood and his merry men on TV. The story of a witty bandit robbing the rich to give the poor is heroic. This time around Ridley Scott brings a different version of Robin Hood. I thank Ridley Scott for making my grey matter gets going as I watch his movie.

Everyone is talking about Lina Joy

Bismillahirrahmanirrahim. In the name of Allah, the most gracious, the most merciful. Of course I would like to say something on Lina Joy’s case. She wants to be an apostasy, using Quran. This verse particularly.

In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.
Let there be no compulsion in religion: Truth stands out clear from Error: whoever rejects evil and believes in God hath grasped the most trustworthy hand- hold, that never breaks. And God heareth and knoweth all things.

* v.256 : Compulsion is incompatible with religion; because 1) religion depends upon faith and will, and these would be meaningless if induced by force; 2) Truth and Error have been so clearly shown up by the mercy of God that there should be no doubt in the minds of any persons of goodwill as to the fundamentals of faith; 3) God’s protection is continuous and His Plan is always to lead us from the depths of darkness into the clearest light.
* Hand-hold: something which the hands can grasp for safety in a moment of danger. It may be a loop or a handle, or anchor. If it is without flaw, so that there is no danger of breaking, our safety is absolutely assured so long as we hold fast to it. Our safety then depends on our own will and faith; God’s help and protection will always be unfailing if we hold firmly to God and trust in Him.

(Translation and interpretation by Abdullah Yusuf Ali)

Weird huh? She claimed that she is not a believer of Islam, but she still want to use Quran, the holy book for Muslim. I wonder whether she really read the quran, cover to cover? Has she come across verse 208? has she studied Quran really well, until she mesmerized by it’s beauty and truth. Does she know that all the pre-nuptial agreement that is popularized by Hollywood stars nowadays, actually already stated in the Quran, dated 1400 years ago. Does she know that? Why on earth she bring such disgrace. I don’t care about the constitution, but she’s trying to use Quran, and she misinterpret it. What a shame! Can someone tell her about this please. Oh, Lina, if by any chance you come across this tiny blog, I hope you already know what you are doing. I don’t want you to lost in your own ignorance. If you really want to use the Quran, use it fully. Not taking bits and pieces, without having a full understanding of it. Wonder why you are doing all this mess, because in the UK, many women revert to Islam because Islam the complete and perfect. Wonder why you did that Lina? You are stepping backward, not forward.

I can see many muslims in the East, but not Islam. I can see Islam in the West, but not many Muslims.

Read: Jeff Ooi’s compilation of other people’s rambling on this issue.

Ya Alah, protect me from anger and apostasy.

From surah Ali Imran: [8] “Our Lord!” (they say), “let not our hearts deviate now after Thou hast guided us, but grant us mercy from Thine own Presence; for Thou art the Grantor of bounties without measure.

[9] “Our Lord! Thou art He that will gather mankind together against a Day about which there is no doubt; for Allah never fails in His promise.”


Is the bible god’s word?

Salam. Sorry sebab lama tak hapdet blog ni. tugasan dan tanggungjawab semakin bertambah. masa berlalu begitu pantas. jadi, sebelum ajal menjemput diri, izikan saya berkongsi sesuatu. Boleh juga anda view sekiranya boring membaca dan menunggu tulisan saya. Video Allahyarham Ahmad Deedat, seorang ulama’ yang perlu kita kenali lebih kanjut berbanding dengan pemain bola sepak kelab kegemaran. Insha Allah, pemergian beliau tidak sia-sia. Bakal ada pengganti, kalau bukan generasi saya, mungkin juga selepas saya (teringat mujahid kak Mum Manchester).

Tajuk diskusi: Is the bible god’s word? There are 5 parts of it. Ingat, hidayah itu ibarat cahaya yang menyapa tingkap (diambil dari kata-kata/analogi akh Faisal Tehrani), andai kita nampak dan tidak mahu ia memasuki kamar kita, maka tutuplah jendela itu dengan langsir dan selubungilah kamar dengan kegelapan.
