Local Music Award

to have been chosen in the semi final, I would say it is a great achivement for the group. But not being selected as top 6 to go further to quarter final is an anticipated decision, basically open to discussion. here are the comments from the official website of 'Muzik-muzik 25'

-Gandingan yang menarik.Tiada yang salahnya dalam eksperimen gabungan sebegini.Cuma dalam dua persembahan Mirwana malam itu,jika kita tidak kenal kumpulan ini mungkin kita tidak tahu mereka adalah sebuah kumpulan nasyid.Harmoni dalam nyanyian berkumpulan mungkin boleh dijaga untuk kedengaran lebih baik,kerana selain itu apa lagi label nasyid yang ada pada kumpulan ini?


-Lama tidak melihat kelibat penyanyi ini walaupun dia baru muncul dengan album baru.Kawalan vokal Fiq kali ini nampaknya tidak sebaik separuh akhir MM yang lalu.Lagu ini mungkin banyak memaksa dia menyanyi dengan nada yang sangat tinggi tetapi buat pertama kali dalam persembahannya,saya melihat penyanyi ini sudah pandai menjerit which is tidak bagus dalam pendidikan seni suara.

I would like to hear your comments, please leave your sincere thoughts for the betterment of the group development.

Who is burning the Quran?


Who is burning the Quran? A Christian priest? Ask a question, if I write the name of Jesus Christ on a piece of paper 29 times and give it to him to burn it, will he burn it? If I write the name of Moses on a piece of paper and give it to a Jew, will he burn it? What they intend to burn is the same. In the Quran the name of Jesus Christ is mentioned with great Honour 29 times and the name of Moses with dignity 129 times, while the name of Prophet Mohammad (peace be upon all of them) is mentioned just 4 times. In addition all the 24 prophets mentioned in the Quran are there in the Bible. Make them aware that they are burning the names of Jesus Christ, Moses and all 24 prophets. The problem is none of them have ever cared to read the Quran. My request to them is to read the Quran’s translation in their own language (easily available free in mosques and in Islamic Centers) and then decide whether burning the Quran is justified or not. I may assure them that they will highly regret in their lives when at a later date they read it. All the allegations of immorality on Mother Mary, Jesus Christ and other prophets mentioned in different books have been very neatly refuted in the Quran. Mother Mary has been given the highest Honour amongst all the women of the World. Read it you will be enlightened. Birth of Moses and his marriage has been described in the most respectful manner. Not a single derogatory word has been used in the Quran for any of the prophets those mentioned in the Bible. Why burn the Quran? Burn those books in which baseless allegations have been put on many of the prophets of God. That will be fully justified. Once you read its translation, you will be convinced that it is the best book on earth, every word is of God, the God of Adam, Abraham, Moses and Jesus (peace be upon them all). Not a single word has changed in 1431 years. It is in its original, pristine form preserved in Turkey and in Leningrad .
It is totally a wrong concept that it was written by the prophet Muhammad (pbuh). How can a person who did not know how to read anything or write, can write a book of over 600 pages without any mistake, describing the advance theory of science and space? He could not even put his signature on the letters which he sent to the heads of states, he used to stamp them with a seal of his name. Moreover the Quran is in the highest literary form of Arabic language, which he did not speak; he used to speak colloquial Arabic. How can Quran be considered man made; a book which describes intricate embryological development of a fetus, space science, complicated oceanography and in over 1400 years no one has found any contradiction or any mistake? Every word of the Quran is the word of God, the same God of Adam, Abraham Moses and Jesus Christ. How can anyone even think of burning the words of your own God?
What is radical about Islam or the teachings of the Quran? Without reading it you call it radical! Bring a single copy of the Bible which is in its original form. What amount of changes is made in the Bible by men to the words of God? Who gave them the authority in the very first place to change the words of God, revise and re-revise the Bible? But still we do not call it radical. We also have appeal to the Muslims of the whole world don’t even think of burning a single copy of the Bible in retaliation because the Bible has the names of our 24 prophets whom all we respect from the core of our hearts.
Coming down to the most crucial point of 9/11: The allegation is again on the Muslim, so they decided to burn the Quran, stop building an Islamic Center in Manhattan near Ground Zero. Have a look at the documentaries made on the truth of 9/11. These documentaries are proved without the shadow of doubt there in the scenario of 9/11 in the year 2001, no Muslim was involved. In one of the documentary it said loud and clear that no Muslim is involved in 9/11 . Amazing, all the documentaries and films are made by Americans and that too Christians. Go through each and every documentary on U-Tube, you will be amazed, who did it - you have to decide yourself of course not any Muslim? The preparation was done three months before 9/11. If anyone considers these documentaries are not authentic, why can’t they take the producers to the courts and involve FBI to investigate how dare they can make such movie which has tarnished the image of America all over the world and the whole world had sunk in deep recession shattering the economy of all the countries. What benefit they achieved by doing so? Thousands of Americans were killed and even are being killed today. Trillions of Dollars have burnt in smoke, millions of innocent people were killed and other multimillions suffered. Why don’t these preachers of peace go after them who did it? Why Muslims and why Quran?
Send this article to all your acquaintances, News papers, magazines, put it on the U-Tube, radio stations, television stations and on the Internet.
To the church of Florida, Denmark, Sweden etc .

Celebrating the first 10 days and nights of Dzul Hijjah

Most Muslims very well know the blessings of the nights of Ramadan, especially the last ten nights. However, not everyone knows that the first ten days of the last month of the Islamic month, Dhul Hijjah, are equally packed with blessings.

Allah has provided Muslims numerous opportunities throughout the year to renew their faith and to encourage them towards acts of goodness by specifying such special days. So, we have another such opportunity that we shouldn’t let pass by just like any other period in time.

Allah says in the Quran in Surah Al-Fajr (interpretation of the meaning):

“By the dawn; By the 10 nights” [al-Fajr 89:1-2].

Most scholars agree that these ten nights refer to the first ten nights of Dhul-Hijjah. Ibn Katheer also had validated that opinion by stating: “This is the correct opinion.” [Tafseer Ibn Katheer, 8/413]

Ibn ‘Abbas reports that the Messenger of Allah (sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam) said,

“No good deeds done on other days are superior to those done on these days [meaning the ten days of Dhul-Hijjah].”

Among the deeds recommended during those ten days are observing voluntary fasting, offering animal sacrifices (lamb, goat, etc.), sincere repentance, recitation of the Quran, staying up the night and finally praying the Eid prayers on the tenth day of Dhul Hijjah.

Hafsah reported, “There are five things that the Messenger (saws) never abandoned: fasting the day of ‘Ashurah, fasting the [first] 10 [days of Dhul-Hijjah], fasting 3 days of every month and praying two rak’aah before the dawn prayer.” [Related by Ahmad and an-Nasa'i]

Abu Hurairah relates that the Messenger of Allah (saws) said, “There are no days more loved to Allah for you to worship Him therein than the ten days of Dhul Hijja. Fasting any day during it is equivalent to fasting one year and to offer salatul tahajjud (late-night prayer) during one of its nights is like performing the late night prayer on the night of power. [i.e., Lailatul Qadr].” [Related by at-Tirmidhi, Ibn Majah, and al-Baihaqi]

The Prophet (SAWS) commanded us to recite a lot of Tasbeeh (“Subhan-Allah”), Tahmeed (“Al-hamdu Lillaah”) and Takbeer (“Allaahu akbar”) during this time. ‘Abdullaah ibn ‘Umar (may Allah be pleased with him and his father) reported that the Prophet (SAWS) said: “There are no days greater in the sight of Allah and in which righteous deeds are more beloved to Him than these ten days, so during this time recite a great deal of Tahleel (“La ilaaha ill-Allah”), Takbeer and Tahmeed.” (Reported by Ahmad, 7/224; Ahmad Shaakir stated that it is saheeh). (

So, as Muslims we should welcome the ten days of Dhul Hijjah with the same fervor and enthusiasm as we welcome the last ten days of Ramadan or any other blessed days in Islam. Lets make the most of it.

A Malaysian celebration as Cardiff City beats Norwich City

Malaysian supporters with the Jalur Gemilang during the match between Cardiff City Football Club and Norwich City at the Cardiff City Stadium yesterday.
LONDON: There was unmistakably a mood of celebration Malaysian-style that pervaded the Cardiff City Stadium yesterday when Malaysian-owned Cardiff City Football Club beat Norwich City with an impressive 3-1.

Cardiff City Stadium had never seen such a big contingent of Malaysian supporters in their national costumes, waving the Jalur Gemilang.

Another first was the announcements in Bahasa Malaysia as well as in Welsh and English.

To add to the jubilant mood, a Malaysian mascot, 5-year-old Isaad Nabil, in his baju Melayu, songkok and sampin, walked proudly beside Craig Bellamy, much to the delight of the spectators.

According to his father, Taufiq Shamsuddin, a PhD scholar at the University of Cardiff, Isaad was so excited that he could not sleep the night before the match.

Taufiq, from the Malaysian Students Society of Cardiff, had helped organise the gathering of Malaysian supporters from Cardiff University, Glamorgan and University of Wales Institute of Cardiff.

They came with their families and were certainly not disappointed with the outcome.

According to Taufiq, local Cardiff City fans were grateful for the enormous support from the Malaysian fans and by the financial support that would resolve the problem of the RM9.9 million in taxes that the club owed.

The money would also help to restructure the club's massive debts. The takeover by Tan Sri Vincent Tan and Datuk Chan Tien Ghee had earned the blessings of thousands of Cardiff City fans.
