Despite the fact that there have been dozens of articles on Malaysian entertainers (or former entertainers) trying to meddle in politics, I have so far shunned away from the topics as I feel that these entertainers are supporting pakatan because of lack of information, or they have some personal agendas behind it. However, after reading Abby Abadi's Twitter, as shown below, I figured out that there is something going on, mostly in their religious understanding. Well, it's also the fact that I don't have much idea about these entertainers as well. I stopped somewhere in the 1980s.
I must admit, I did watch one or two episodes of Gerak Khas back then, not really by choice. Abby's acting was quite natural, for a plank. Now with her star value in the dumps, she is embarking on a new road that will make her famous, although not necessarily for the right reasons.
Here's something I would like to recommend to these hard-to-sell former entertainers: how about deepening your knowledge on Islam by learning from actual ulamas, or even apolitical scholars, such as Sheikh Imran Hoesin. You might just find that pas stand nowhere in the equation, nor can you find them in the 5 Pillars of Islam.
Solve me this equation, Abby: pas collaborates with enemies of Islam in dap, supports anwar ibrahim, who supports the security of Israel, much to Palestine's and Muslims' dismay, who is also supported and supports the people who are descended from the people who were locked away behind a great wall between two great ranges and agents of the one-eyed who shall make his appearance and reward HIS people, and you support pas because it guarantees you a place in Heaven? Really, Abby, try being apolitical, register yourself for religious classes, deepen your knowledge on Islam and try again. Islam teaches so many things, but nowehere does it say that a political party that disguises itself as Islamic, releases self-serving fatwas upon fatwas just for the sake of getting votes, split the ummah apart, has any authority to guarantee you a place anywhere.
Maybe that riddle was too complicated, so here's an easy one: below are the Rukun Islam, or the 5 Pillars of Islam (unless you're a different sect of Syi'ah, please refer to the 7 Pillars of Ismailism):
(1) Mengucap dua kalimah syahadat
(2) Sembahyang lima waktu
(3) Berpuasa sebulan dalam bulan Ramadhan
(4) Menunaikan haji ke Baitullah (Mekah)
(5) Menunaikan zakat
and here's the Rukun Iman:
(1) Beriman kepada ALLAH SWT
(2) Beriman kepada Malaikat-malaikat
(3) Beriman kepada Kitab-kitab
(4) Beriman kepada Rasul-rasul
(5) Beriman kepada Hari Kiamat
(6) Beriman kepada Qada dan Qadar
Can you please point to me where pas comes into the picture?
Is it atill a wonder that the hadith on the end of times state that religious leaders will be ignorant and chosen only because of their voice and ability to talk? How the one-eyed laughs...
P.S.: Interesting; at a time when ulamas and true believers of Islam are leaving pas in droves, the cheap, no-sell former entertainers are joining. Hey, pas has never been Islamic, but we know that already.
