  9. 9. All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2016))  Our traditional Ahlus-Sunnah wal Jama’ah, in matters of AQEEDAH, has been successful in refuting all ideological attacks to our creed from the Rationalists, deviant mystics, atheist of its time – using its own philosophical methods and discourses.  Many Muslims may have undervalued the intellectual heritage of traditional Islam. With resurgence of Islamic discourse from a certain ‘group’ which is gaining much follower on the YouTube, ‘philosophy’ and “ILMU- AL-KALAM” is branded as a ‘heresy’ to be shunned.  Whereas our remedy to these challenges is this heritage of Islam.

And today SECULARISM, HUMANISM, PRAGMATISM etc. being dominant and promoted – thus they either have no notion of the Absolute or refuse to submit to the evidence brought by religion, they are in a perpetual state of loss “THE TINKER” All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2016)) WHAT CAN WE DO ABOUT THIS?
  12. 12. All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2016))  In the context of Singapore Malay-Muslims, many may have lost their mastery of the Malay language while their English literacy does not entail enough competency to understand serious intellectual discourses.  Also, since we are living in a multi-racial multi-lingual society, and to uphold the legacy of Prophetic Da’wah to others, we should seriously prepare our young generation to master other languages.  Perhaps we can begin by preparing a simple immersion program in daily interactive conversational courses – Mandarin, Hokkien, Cantonese, Tamil, French, Tagalog, Japanese, etc. WHAT CAN WE DO ABOUT THIS?
