Although I was once a member of worldwide tarikat group CLICK or popularly known as Jamat Tabligh but now I am no longer the member of the group. I do not think I will ever join the group again, although many members of the group are having a very high hope that one day I will return back to the group. Many members of the group particularly in Malaysia are having profound love towards me and they are hoping that one day I will be joining back the group. Once I was one of their leaders in Malaysia and I was regarded by many in the group as the gem of Malaysian’s Tabligh Jamat. I was one of their most outspoken leaders who often gave fiery lectures that help to arouse their desires to give sacrifice in the work of Tabligh Jamat. I was their leaders and in order for me to be convinced that the work of this Tarikat group has the capability in transforming Muslims to become good Muslims, I gave my utmost sacrifice, ability and capability to this tarikat group. During the last thirty years I was with the group, I have never missed to give my annual 40 days, my monthly three days and two and a half hours daily in the activities of the mosque. Every day I was always in the mosques and in the last thirty years of my life, I always perform my 5 times daily prayer with congregation in the mosques. I knew in my heart that this Tabligh Jamat is not the work of the Prophet saw but when I compare to all the other Islamic religious movement, Tabligh Jamat is the closest to the work of the Prophet saw. After I was involved in this Tarikat Group for nearly twenty years, I started to analyse myself and others in the group. I was wondering whether since the past 20 years I was involved in the Tarikat Group, I had become a better person or otherwise. When I observed those who had involved in the work longer than me, I do not observe the behaviours of a religious person that I had expected. When I look at my own self, I also do not have the religious behaviours that I should had after joining the Tarikat group for nearly twenty years. I told to myself that I would not like to be any worse than I am now in the next twenty years. I was puzzled and seriously in deep thought on how the work should be done in order I can become a better person in the next twenty years to come. A person will become better day by day when his or her iman keep on increasing day by day. I started to wonder in the last twenty years I was with Tabligh Jamat whether my iman increasing, decreasing or remain the same. (more…)

The downfall of Hosni Mubarak and other leaders of the Muslim world is an indication that a great revolution is about to happen in this world. Once upon a time, most countries of the Muslim world were colonized by western powers and over a span of several years; many of these Muslim countries gain their independence from their colonial master. At those times the desire to gain independence from their colonial master has become like a virus spreading its infectious effects to all the Muslim countries at that time. It starts with Indonesian getting her independence from the Dutch in 1945 and later many Muslims countries in the Middle East also became independence. None of the colonial master at that time wants it to happen but it did happen and Muslims all over the world at that time were in the mood of liberating their countries from the clutch of the non-Muslims colonial masters. Allah has liberated the Muslims from the clutch of colonization of non-Muslims. Why it happen? I believe it happened because there is a group of Muslims were doing the work of the Prophet saw headed by Sheikh Muhammad Ilyas in Mewat, India. When there is a disease, Allah sent a cure. When there was no one who believes in Allah and the existence of Allah, Allah sent Prophet Muhammad saw to the entire mankind. The coming of Prophet Muhammad saw is the blessing to the entire mankind and the blessing lays in the fact that with the coming of the Prophet saw, humankind had started to adopt a way of life pleased by Allah. When mankind starts to adopts the ways of life of Prophet Muhammad saw, blessing start to comes to mankind. At the time of Hazrat Umar bin Abdul Aziz, even the wolf and the goat can live like companions. The blessings that descend were not only spreading to mankind but also to the animals. When Sheikh Muhammad Ilyas started the work of Prophet saw it is the same as if Allah has sent Prophet saw. This is due to the work of Prophet saw had been done by Sheikh Muhammad Ilyas. (more…)
