Daulat Tuanku !
Ampun Tuanku, salah dan silap pembicaraan patek harap diampun.
Your Majesty is the guardian to all Malays and others who regard your Majesty as their ruler. The Malays in Malaysia regard DYMM Tuanku as their ruler. Malays are known to be obedient to their rulers as they regard them as their leaders.
In order for any society to live in peace and harmony they must have a leader. The leaders to all the Malays are their rulers and the rulers are in fact their Ulul-Amri @ Amir @ Imam. As in a congregational prayer, the followers are responsible to follow each and every movement of the imam. As the imam moves, the followers also follow the same movement. The followers cannot make any movement ahead of their imam and in case the followers are ahead of the imam, the prayer of the followers will not be regarded as a congregational prayer or in another word become nullified. When the imam makes a mistake, it becomes obligatory upon the followers to correct him. Allah has ordered the followers to correct the imam in a polite manner. Allah has ordered the followers of the congregational prayer to say “Subhanallah”. When we correct the imam, our intention is not to correct the imam but only to obey the orders of Allah and to please Him alone. Allah teaches us to be polite in reminding our Imam. Similarly, when our leaders do make mistakes, Allah orders us to remind them in a polite manner.
DYMM Tuanku is our only leader and the leader of citizens of Malaysia. DYMM Tuanku has delegated the power to govern this blessed country to the citizens and the citizens in turn, through a democratic system, elected leaders to represent them in the Parliament. The leader of the political party that wins majority of the parliamentary seats will be made the Prime Minister. The Prime Minister however is not the Ulul-Amri. The Ulul-Amri is still the DYMM Tuanku who is elected from the Conference of Rulers of Malaysia. Whoever among the rulers appointed as the Yang Di-Pertuan Agong is the Ulul-Amri ( Amir ) of Malaysia.
DYMM Tuanku is our supreme Amir. At any time there should not be two Amirs. It is the order of Allah SWT that there should only be one Amir that rules and leads at any one time. When we have two Amirs, ‘fitnah’ will prevails.
Fitnah means we will have chaos and among Muslims there will be antagonism. Muslims will in the end kill each other, and there will be no love and peace between them. When some Muslims during the time of Khalifah Uthman may Allah be pleased with him wanted to kill him, Hazrat Uthman had advised the Muslims not to do so; and he had warned them that if they didn’t obey his order as their legitimate Amir but instead, obey the orders of another Amir, there will be chaos instead of love and peace between the Muslims after his death.
History had witnessed the truth of what had been said by Hazrat Uthman prior to his death. After Hazrat Uthman was killed, Muslims until now no longer experience peace and harmony between them. The first question Hazrat Umar asked the Muslims when he was stabbed was who has stabbed me? When the people told him that the one who has stabbed him was a non-Muslim, he was greatly relieved. When a Muslim kills a Muslim and the Muslim who was killed is the Amir of the Muslims, then fitnah will come to the Muslims. The Muslims cannot have more than one Amir at any one time to lead them.
In Malaysia at this time, there should be only one Amir and the only Amir is DYMM Tuanku. DYMM Tuanku is the real Amir of Malaysia. DYMM Tuanku must take charge of Malaysia particularly during chaos. DYMM Tuanku must take charge particularly when those whom DYMM Tuanku has empowered to execute laws and orders have failed to do so. During chaotic and turbulent times, it become the incumbent duty upon DYMM Tuanku to establish peace and harmony in this country.
When those politicians whom DYMM Tuanku have entrusted to establish law and orders have failed to do so, it becomes the responsibility of DYMM Tuanku to take back the power and rule this country. Because of politics, the Malays are not united and in the name of establishing justice in Malaysia many lies have been made. Many politicians are no longer genuine in their struggles to establish Malaysia as a country where the citizens can live in peace and harmony. Many Politicians have turn politics into a mean of enriching themselves with wealth and power. Many politicians are more interested in using the power entrusted to them, to make their families and themselves richer. Many politicians are even willing to deny the rights of the Malays, only because they want to gain the political supports from the Chinese and the Indians. When politicians strive to deny the special Malay rights, it clearly means that they are striving to deny Your Majesty’s rights to become the ruler of this country and the right of upholding Islam as the official religion of the country.
It is DYMM Tuanku and all the Malay rulers who have entrusted the politicians the power to rule this country. The power to rule this country belongs to DYMM Tuanku and all the Malay rulers and not to the politicians. Power and honour only belong to Allah and there is no one who own power and honour except Allah. According to the orders of Allah and the Sunnah of His Prophet saw when there are three among you; one must be made an Amir. The Amir shall be entrusted with power and the power shall be used by the Amir to establish the orders of Allah. As long as that person is an Amir, all his orders that are not against the orders of Allah have to be listened to, obeyed and followed. Malaysia must have an Amir who is under the patronage of Allah SWT, and the rightful owner of the position of the Amir is the DYMM Tuanku. Having a bad Amir is better than not having an Amir at all. There should not be a situation in Malaysia whereby we do not have an Amir. When we do not have an Amir, we are not obeying the orders of Allah; and Allah will be displeased with us.
When DYMM Tuanku is our Amir, the power to established law and orders in Malaysia lies upon the DYMM Tuanku and all the rulers. When the Prime Minister has failed to execute his responsibilities, DYMM Tuanku and all the rulers must take over the power from the Prime Minister and choose another Prime Minister, so that law and orders will again be established in Malaysia. DYMM Tuanku doesn’t have to use the democracy system to choose the Prime Minister. In Islam, whenever there are no revelation or wahyu to solve our problems, Allah ordered us to solve our problems through the mesyuarah of syura council. DYMM Tuanku can use the mesyuarah of syura council to choose the Prime Minister. The members of the syurah councils shall comprise all the Malay rulers in particular and others whom DYMM Tuanku feels qualified to become the members of the council.
Since DYMM Tuanku rules as an Amir for only five years, the appointment of the Prime Minister may also be reviewed after every five years. DYMM Tuanku and all the rulers must put the responsibility to establish peace, law and order above the system. In a democratic system the majority rules; and if the majority of the people are evil doers, an evil person would most probably be elected to become the Prime Minister.
Currently we are practicing Constitutional Monarchy, following the system developed by our colonial master. Although Your Majesty is the ruler or the Amir of this country, but in constitutional monarchy, Your Majesty has neither the advisory nor the executive power. In constitutional Monarchy, Your Majesty’s role as an Amir is made dormant and inactive. Your Majesty is regarded as nothing more than just a symbol. Islam recognizes only two systems of governance. The first one is Caliphate and the second one is Monarchy. The history shows us that there are four companions of the Prophet saw who had became the Caliph and were known as The Guided Caliphs and one companion of the Prophet saw who was a King. Hazrat Abu Bakr, Umar, Uthman and Ali were the Guided Caliphs and Hazrat Muawiyah was the example of a King. When Muslims are good believers, the Caliphate or Monarchial system of governance are most suitable for their well beings.
Muslims in Malaysia will become real believers when all Muslims in Malaysia seriously do the work of inviting people to good and forbidding people from evils. If Malaysia wants to follow the Islamic system of governance, a Monarchy system of governance is currently the most suitable system. DYMM Tuanku is the King and the Amir of Malaysia and to help DYMM Tuanku manages the country, DYMM Tuanku with the consultation of the syurah council may appoints a Prime Minister. The Prime Minister, upon advice from DYMM Tuanku, will appoint his Cabinet Ministers whom will assist him in executing all the policies and the directions established by DYMM Tuanku.
Democracy is not an Islamic system and it has never been used by the Prophet saw, the Companions of the Prophet saw and the Muslims in the past. Democracy is a system of governance developed by the ancient Romans who were non-Muslims. In a democratic system, the majority rules and when the majority of the people are evil doers, evil will definitely rules the day. Hence, Allah never commanded to the Prophet saw to implement the democratic system simply because it is not the most suitable governing system to benefit mankind. It is a system developed by men and certainly it has many flaws and weaknesses.
As a Muslim, we have to obey the orders of Allah’s including to re-establish the governing system shown by Allah to the Prophet saw and his companions. Nowadays, there are many countries in the world that are not practicing a democratic system of governance yet they are accepted and respected by the world. China and Saudi Arabia for instance do not practice a democratic system, yet they were accepted and welcomed by the UN.
When the democratic system of governance is no longer capable of securing peace and harmony in Malaysia, DYMM Tuanku as the rightful Amir of Malaysia and all the Malay Rulers are in the position to opt for an Islamic System of governance that is the Monarchial system instead of maintaining the present democratic system of governance. Islamic system of governance is a system shown by Allah to the Prophet saw and has been practiced by the Companions of the Prophet saw and the Muslims after them.
Islamic system of governance does not require General Elections to be done. Without the General Elections, Malaysia will be able to save a lot of money which can be used to benefit the citizens. Malaysia will be saved from falling into the hands of the devils and the evil doers. When we use the Islamic system of governance, this country will be blessed by Allah with peace and prosperity. DYMM Tuanku and all the Malay Rulers will be regarded by Allah as obedient servants of Allah. DYMM Tuanku and all the Malay rulers will be remembered for generations to come as those who were responsible in reviving the Islamic system of governance in this world. When we obey Allah by following the way of Prophet Muhammad saw, we will be successful in the eyes of our Creator, Allah SWT. May Allah blesses and guides DYMM Tuanku and all the Malay Rulers to the path taken by His beloved Prophet Muhammad saw.
I have fulfilled my responsibility to remind Your Majesty DYMM Tuanku, all the Malay Rulers and all the Malay political leaders in this blessed country solely with the intention of obeying the orders of Allah and to please Allah until I become one of the lovers of Allah . To my utmost capability, I have tried to remind Your Majesty DYMM Tuanku, the Malay Rulers and the Malay political leaders in the most polite manner. Were I not polite enough to the standard of Your Majesty, may I ask forgiveness from Your Majesty and from Allah SWT.
Daulat Tuanku !
Ampun Tuanku. Apa yang patek persembahkan harap diampun. Patek mohon mengundur diri.
