Istiqomah1[Slideshare]Amnded

  1. 1. “ Towards becoming Muslims - and its challenges.” Friday night lecture series by: Ustaz Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail @ Masjid al- Istiqomah (Seranggon, Singapore) ©2006ZhulkefleeHjIsmail
  2. 2. Commandment for Muslims to be grateful: <ul><li>وَإِذۡ تَأَذَّنَ رَبُّكُمۡ لَٮِٕن شَڪَرۡتُمۡ لَأَزِيدَنَّكُمۡ‌ۖ وَلَٮِٕن ڪَفَرۡتُمۡ إِنَّ عَذَابِى لَشَدِيدٌ۬ </li></ul><ul><li>“ And remember! Your Lord caused to be declared (publicly): ‘If you are grateful, I will add more (favours) unto you; but if you show ingratitude, truly My punishment is terrible indeed.” ( Qur’an: Ibrahim : 14: 7 ) </li></ul>©2006ZhulkefleeHjIsmail
  3. 3. Commandment for Muslims to be grateful: <ul><li>لَقَدۡ مَنَّ ٱللَّهُ عَلَى ٱلۡمُؤۡمِنِينَ إِذۡ بَعَثَ فِيہِمۡ رَسُولاً۬ مِّنۡ أَنفُسِهِمۡ يَتۡلُواْ عَلَيۡہِمۡ ءَايَـٰتِهِۦ وَيُزَڪِّيہِمۡ وَيُعَلِّمُهُمُ ٱلۡكِتَـٰبَ وَٱلۡحِڪۡمَةَ وَإِن كَانُواْ مِن قَبۡلُ لَفِى ضَلَـٰلٍ۬ مُّبِينٍ </li></ul><ul><li>“ Allah did confer a great favour on the Believers when He sent among them a Messenger from among themselves; rehearsing unto them the Signs of Allah, sanctifying them and instructing them in Scripture and Wisdom, while before that, they had been in manifest error.” </li></ul><ul><li>( Qur’an: Aali ‘Imran: 3: 164 ) </li></ul>©2006ZhulkefleeHjIsmail
  4. 4. Why this topic? <ul><li>يَـٰٓأَيُّہَا ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُواْ ٱتَّقُواْ ٱللَّهَ حَقَّ تُقَاتِهِۦ وَلَا تَمُوتُنَّ إِلَّا وَأَنتُم مُّسۡلِمُونَ </li></ul><ul><li>“ O you who have attained to faith! Be conscious of Allah with a true consciousness, and do not allow death to overtake you unless you are (in state of submission to Allah) in Islam. </li></ul><ul><li>( Qur’an: Aali ‘Imran: 3: 102) </li></ul>©2006ZhulkefleeHjIsmail
  5. 5. Why this topic? <ul><li>وَٱعۡتَصِمُواْ بِحَبۡلِ ٱللَّهِ جَمِيعً۬ا وَلَا تَفَرَّقُواْ‌ۚ وَٱذۡكُرُواْ نِعۡمَتَ ٱللَّهِ عَلَيۡكُمۡ </li></ul><ul><li>And holdfast all together by the Rope which Allah stretches out for you) and be not divided among yourselves; and remember with gratitude Allah’s favour on you;” </li></ul><ul><li>( Qur’an: Aali ‘Imran: 3: 103) </li></ul>©2006ZhulkefleeHjIsmail
  6. 6. Why this topic? <ul><li>Muslims – due to lack of proper Islamic education - may not realize, let alone appreciate, - what “Ad-deen al-Islam” really is; and who? how? or what? constitute being truly a Muslim. </li></ul><ul><li>Devoid of strong Islamic foundation, yet living in the context of today’s multi-religious reality & globalization which exposes us to many influences : many Muslims may be facing crisis of value & culture. Unable or ill-equipped with correct Islamic knowledge to respond, it may lead even to loss of their identity as Muslim. </li></ul>©2006ZhulkefleeHjIsmail
  7. 7. Why this topic? <ul><li>This loss of identity can either be: </li></ul><ul><li>(a) apparent (as in case of ‘murtad’); or </li></ul><ul><li>(b) hidden (as in the case of blatant hypocrisy – ‘nifaaq’). </li></ul><ul><li>Even for those who genuinely love Islam, but due to their ignorance of its teachings, they may be tempted to react ‘emotionally’ or ‘apologetically’ (which may be opposed to what Islam actually teaches) – especially towards others – thus adding to the much confusion regarding Islam itself. </li></ul>©2006ZhulkefleeHjIsmail
  8. 8. Why this topic? <ul><li>There is a sense of despair in some Muslims today , due to the barrage of negative image on Islam in the media - the perceived ‘backwardness’ of Muslims (social-economic-political); the immorality, disunity, enmity or hostility amongst sections of Muslims (although these are the exceptional few); the seeming absence of Islamic response to contemporary world problems; etc. – which may tempt some Muslims to compromise our religious principles or discard what is the Islamic Way - and to experiment with other “isms” or methodologies grounded on philosophies opposed to Islam! Na-’uu -dzubillah min dzaalik ! </li></ul>©2006ZhulkefleeHjIsmail
  9. 9. Remember ……………. <ul><li>“ Ad-Deen al-Islam” : is perfect, whereas the Muslims are not – unless they strive with their utmost to establish Islam perfectly in themselves. </li></ul><ul><li>وَلَا تَهِنُواْ وَلَا تَحۡزَنُواْ وَأَنتُمُ ٱلۡأَعۡلَوۡنَ إِن كُنتُم مُّؤۡمِنِينَ </li></ul><ul><li> ( Qur’an: Aali ‘Imran: 3:139 ) </li></ul>©2006ZhulkefleeHjIsmail

  22. 22. What - essentially -is the main problem of the Ummah? <ul><li>Many theses can be offered as to the cause or causes for the problem and many would concur that the main essential problem stems from the lag of Muslims in their current EDUCATION.

What is its philosophy and objective? </li></ul><ul><li>Can a dual form of EDUCATION solve the Muslim problem? </li></ul><ul><li>What about an “integrated” EDUCATION?

  23. 23. UNDERSTANDING THE CHALLENGE OF THE UMMAH ©2006ZhulkefleeHjIsmail
  24. 24. What - essentially -is the main problem of the Ummah? <ul><li>Prof. Sayyid Muhammad Naquib al-Attas identifies “Confusion in knowledge amongst Muslims” as the main problem. </li></ul><ul><li>This confusion leads to the Loss of ADAB : </li></ul><ul><li>“ Adab is recognition and acknowledgement of the reality that knowledge and being are ordered hierarchically according to their various grades ,degrees and rank, and of one’s proper place in relation to that reality and to one’s physical, intellectual and spiritual capacities and potentials.” [a] </li></ul><ul><li>[a] as quoted by Wan Mohd Nor Wan Daud “The Educational Philosophy and Practice of Syed Muhammad Naquib Al-Attas ” page 137. </li></ul>©2006ZhulkefleeHjIsmail
  25. 25. <ul><li> (C) </li></ul><ul><li> Rise / election of </li></ul><ul><li> False leaders in every </li></ul><ul><li> level of society </li></ul><ul><li>External </li></ul><ul><li> Loss of Adab (B) </li></ul><ul><li>Internal </li></ul><ul><li> (A) </li></ul><ul><li>Confusion and Error in Knowledge </li></ul><ul><li>Figure 1 </li></ul><ul><li>“ This state of perpetual confusion at all levels of societal leadership is ingeniously termed by al-Attas as the loss of adab . This can be described as follows: </li></ul><ul><li>Confusion and error in knowledge; creating the condition for: </li></ul><ul><li>The loss of adab within the Community. The condition arising out of (A) and (B) is: </li></ul><ul><li>“ The rise of leaders who are not qualified for valid leadership of the Muslim Community, who do not possess the high moral, intellectual and spiritual standards required for Islamic leadership, who perpetuate the condition in (A) [1] above and ensure the continued control of the affairs of the Community by leaders like them who dominate in all fields.” [2] </li></ul><ul><li>[1] The loss of Adab in the community. Thus restoration of Adab has higher priority for Adab precedes even learning. </li></ul><ul><li>[2] Wan Mohd Nor Wan Daud’s “The Educational Philosophy and Practice of Syed Muhammad Naquib Al-Attas” (ISTAC publication 1998) p 74 </li></ul>BREAKDOWN IN ADAB – LEADING TO LEVELLING Prof. Syed Muhammad Naquib Al-Attas’ analysis:
  26. 26. What - essentially -is the main problem of the Ummah? <ul><li>Although the solution is to remove the confusion of knowledge through EDUCATION, yet in Islam education is essentially “TA’DIB” from the term ADAB, without which, real education cannot take place. </li></ul><ul><li>Lest we forget, Islamic education seek to produce the “good human being” modeled after the pattern of our Prophet Muhammad s.a.w. the “Insan Kaamil”, and not merely developing ones’ competence to compete in the global market, as generally understood and advocated by contemporary educationists. </li></ul>©2006ZhulkefleeHjIsmail
  27. 27. What - essentially -is the main problem of the Ummah? <ul><li>We must remember that Islam’s worldview emphasize the primacy of the Hereafter, although it never deny that it is in this world, that work and righteousness must be established: </li></ul><ul><li>وَقُلِ ٱعۡمَلُواْ فَسَيَرَى ٱللَّهُ عَمَلَكُمۡ وَرَسُولُهُ ۥ وَٱلۡمُؤۡمِنُونَ‌ۖ </li></ul><ul><li>وَسَتُرَدُّونَ إِلَىٰ عَـٰلِمِ ٱلۡغَيۡبِ وَٱلشَّہَـٰدَةِ </li></ul><ul><li>“ Say: ‘Work righteousness! And Allah will behold your deeds, and [so will] His Messenger, and the believers, and in the end you will be brought before Him Who know all ....” ( Qur’an: at-Taubah : 9: 105 ) </li></ul>©2006ZhulkefleeHjIsmail
  28. 28. What - essentially -is the main problem of the Ummah? <ul><li>We must remember that Islam’s worldview emphasize the primacy of the Hereafter, although it never deny that it is in this world, that work and righteousness must be established: </li></ul><ul><li>يُثَبِّتُ ٱللَّهُ ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُواْ بِٱلۡقَوۡلِ ٱلثَّابِتِ فِى ٱلۡحَيَوٰةِ ٱلدُّنۡيَا وَفِى ٱلۡأَخِرَةِ‌ۖ وَيُضِلُّ ٱللَّهُ ٱلظَّـٰلِمِينَ‌ۚ وَيَفۡعَلُ ٱللَّهُ مَا يَشَآءُ </li></ul><ul><li>“ Allah will establish in strength those who attained to faith, with the Word that stands firm, in this world and in the Hereafter: but Allah will leave astray those who do wrong: Allah does what He wills.” ( Qur’an: Ibrahim : 14 : 27 ) </li></ul>©2006ZhulkefleeHjIsmail
