  18. 18. IDENTIFYING THE DANGERS AFFECTING THIS UMMAHIDENTIFYING THE DANGERS AFFECTING THIS UMMAH All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2016))  “SOCIETY ” is defined by Oxford Dictionary as: “The aggregate of people living together in a more or less ordered community.”  Living in a society of diverse ethnicity, faith and ideology etc. we are bound to be exposed to various influences other than our own.  “CULTURE” is defined as the shared patterns of behaviours and interactions, cognitive constructs and understanding that are learned by socialization.  Thus, culture can be seen as the growth of a group identity fostered by social patterns unique to the group.
  19. 19. IDENTIFYING THE DANGERS AFFECTING THIS UMMAHIDENTIFYING THE DANGERS AFFECTING THIS UMMAH All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2016))  The word “CULTURE" derives from a French term, which in turn derives from the Latin “COLERE," which means” to tend to the earth and grow, or cultivation and nurture. “  “It shares its etymology with a number of other words related to actively fostering growth," – (Cristina De Rossi, an anthropologist at Barnet and Southgate College in London).  "Culture is the collective programming of the mind which distinguishes the members of one category of people from another." (Hofstede, G. (1984). National cultures and corporate cultures.).
  20. 20. IDENTIFYING THE DANGERS AFFECTING THIS UMMAHIDENTIFYING THE DANGERS AFFECTING THIS UMMAH All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2016))  "Most social scientists today view culture as consisting primarily of the symbolic, ideational, and intangible aspects of human societies. The essence of a culture is not its artefacts, tools, or other tangible cultural elements but how the members of the group interpret, use, and perceive them. It is the values, symbols, interpretations, and perspectives that distinguish one people from another in modernized societies; it is not material objects and other tangible aspects of human societies. People within a culture usually interpret the meaning of symbols, artefacts, and behaviours in the same or in similar ways.” RE: Banks, J.A., Banks, & McGee, C. A. (1989). Multicultural education
  21. 21. IDENTIFYING THE DANGERS AFFECTING THIS UMMAHIDENTIFYING THE DANGERS AFFECTING THIS UMMAH All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2016))  Muslims must not be complacent and naïve, assuming that in the country of diverse community, there are no challenges directed towards the masses seeking to influence our thoughts, value or even our faith.  What is worrying is that many Muslims, devoid of the spirit of Da’wah, have become easy targets, subjected for various agenda or propaganda.  It is ironic, nay tragic, that instead of we doing the ‘calling’, others have steadily and are investing much in trying to proselytize or indoctrinate Muslims to their respective faiths, or ideologies or life-styles, etc. This our shortcomings need to be addressed.
