In my opinion the problem of present day Muslims will be solved when Muslims have a leader that has the qualities of the Prophet Muhammad saw CLICK. Muslims all over the world need to be united and in order to be united, Muslims need a leader. What is the factor that will unite the Muslims? Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad saw are the factors that will unite the Muslims. All Muslims either they are Sunni or Syiah accept Muhammad saw as their Prophet and no Muslims will ever argue on the fact that Muhammad saw is the Prophet of Allah. What is the Sunnah of the Prophet Muhammad saw? Sunnah means the practices of Prophet Muhammad saw that can be followed by all Muslims. In order Muslims to be united, they have to come to the practices of Prophet Muhammad saw. When Muslims practices the Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad saw, Allah will love the Muslims and when Allah loves the Muslims, Allah will give them the good qualities. With good qualities, Muslims will be united as a body as told by Prophet Muhammad saw. Muslims need a leader that will bring the Muslims to the practices of the Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad saw. Why Allah sent a Prophet to mankind? Allah sent Prophets to mankind in order to call or to invite mankind to accept Him as their only God and there is no God except Him. The work of calling mankind to accept Allah as the only God is the Sunnah of all Prophets .This is what it means as the Sunnah of our Prophet Muhammad saw and this is the Sunnah of the Prophet saw to be practiced by all Muslims if they want qualities similar to the Prophet Muhammad saw and they want leaders with qualities similar to Prophet Muhammad saw. Nowadays, neither Muslims nor their leader with qualities similar to Prophet Muhammad saw as there is no one in the world that does the work of Prophet Muhammad saw. Nowadays Muslims do have leaders but not with the qualities similar to Prophet Muhammad saw. Because of this Muslims are not united as one Ummah. (more…)

There is only one way out for Dato Seri Anwar Ibrahim and to all those who are supporting him. One way out and there is no other ways except that way. Dato Seri Anwar Ibrahim is known as an Islamic political leader who used to stand in the path of promoting Islamic ideas and practices yet trapped along the way with the love of power, wealth and women. No one can claim that they are clean and pure, as all human being are all exposed to the love of wealth and power. When there is no power and wealth, a person may not be tested and they may look clean and pure but when there are given power and wealth, few can remain clean and pure. When Dato Seri Anwar was a young student leader with no power and wealth he was at that time could probably be clean and pure, but now Dato Seri Anwar is not the same Anwar that Datin Seri Wan Azizah knew and get attracted CLICK. All problems that come to us are because of our actions. No problem that has come to us is because of the actions of other peoples. We often blame other peoples for the problems that we have and that is the usual actions taken by most peoples. When we are in the habits of always blaming other peoples, in whatever problems that have happened upon us, it showed that we are the type of a person who put desires as God. When we have made our desires as our God, we always blame others in whatever problem comes to us. We declined to accept the fact that the problems that has come to us is because of our own wrong action. We would point our fingers to others and refused to accept that it is due to our own wrong doings. When we refused to accept the fact the problems that has come to us is the result of our own wrong actions, it showed that our desires has taken the place of our God. Men desires are to be always right and correct and they hate to make any mistakes or any wrong doings. When men are at the lowest level of desires they always think that they are always right and others are always wrong. Most men are in this level of desires and when men’s desires have increased to the next upper level of desires, they start to blame themselves in whatever problems that have come to them. What level of desire are you now? (more…)
What is the purpose of our life in this world? Allah has created us so that we become the obedient slaves of Allah and wins His pleasure. What Allah really wants from us? Does Allah gain anything in creating humankinds like us? What do Allah gains in creating mankind? Allah gains nothing from us as we own nothing and Allah owns everything in this world and the hereafter. What we can give to Allah when Allah has everything and Allah does not need anything. Allah is rich and all Allah’s creation is poor. Why Allah wants us to obey all the orders of Allah? What benefit to us if we obey all the orders of Allah and what loses that will incurred upon us if we disobey the orders of Allah. Do Allah gains anything if we obey Him and Do Allah lose anything if we do not obey Allah? Allah gains nothing if we obey the orders of Allah and Allah loses nothing if we disobey all the orders of Allah. Why Allah give humankinds many orders? Mankinds are created by Allah and only Allah knows how to make men to become successful. Men do not know how to become successful as men are creations and not the Creator. With the permission of Allah, men were able to invent car and only those who has invented the cars know on how to make the car runs smoothly and bring worthy to the owner of the car. The car must be driven according to the manuals made by the inventor of the car and not according to the wishes of the owner of the car. In case the owner of the car does not want to drive the car according to the manuals given by the inventor of the car, because the owner thinks the car belongs to him or her, definitely the car will not be able to be driven and finally the car will become malfunction and possibly bring harm to the owner of the car. In order to become successful men must lead their lifes by following all the orders of Allah but when men think that they are here in this world without being created by Allah and start to lead lifes following their own desires, men will become failures in this world and the world hereafter.

Among the twelve missions CLICK for Malaysia to become an advanced and progressive nation, the first and foremost is that all Muslims in Malaysia should have the quality of enjoining people to do good and forbidding them from evil. Muslims in Malaysia must be fond to do the work of enjoining good and forbidding evil. Good actions are the essence of success while evil actions are the essence of failure. Allah will grant success or failure to human based on their actions. None can grant success or failure except Allah. Allah does not grant success to those who have wealth but Allah grant success to those who have good actions. Malaysia will become an advanced and progressive nation when the Malaysians become successful citizens. Allah will make all Malaysians successful citizens when they have good actions. A country may have plenty of natural resources such as petroleum and precious metals but when the citizens of that country are evil, the country will never be a modern and advanced nation. Evil actions such as bribery and dishonesty will plunge the whole administration of a country into chaos. The evil actions of people are the real causes of backwardness, poverty and miseries. The abundant natural resources of a country could not become means of changing the destiny of the country. The actions of the people are the means of changing the destiny of a country and her citizens.
A country that wants to change its destiny must change the actions of its people. When the actions of people are good, the destiny of the country will be good. Malaysia will become a modern, advanced and progressive nation when the actions and the behavior of her people are good. The behavior of the Malaysians will be good if their beliefs and mindsets are correct and good. The beliefs and mindsets of Malaysians will be corrected and good when they do the work of enjoining good and forbidding evil. The one who invites to good will become good. The one who invites to evil will become evil. What you speak is what you are. The one who invites people to good will always speak good and correct words. The one who invite people to do evil will always speak evil and wrong words. Therefore, we have to make effort to instill the quality of enjoining good and forbidding evil among the Malaysians if we want Malaysia to become an advanced and progressive nation. What is good and what is evil has to be defined correctly, and the work of enjoining good and forbidding evil needs to be defined and done correctly. Wrong definition and understanding of good and evil will lead to incorrect work of enjoining good and forbidding evil and will lead to incorrect results and wrong destiny.
Good actions should start with acknowledged the existence of only one Creator and Sustainer, who is Allah; and to acknowledge that Allah has sent a messenger, whose name was Muhammad SAW. The Prophet Muhammad has to be obeyed and followed and whoever does that will be successful in this World and in the Hereafter. The good actions that is required after pronouncing the acknowledgement is to do the work that will turn the acknowledgement into belief and thought of the person. Once it has become the person’s belief and thought, the behavior and actions of that person will become good. Good actions of any man or woman begin when he or she has recited the Great Kalimah, the meaning of which is; I bear witness that there is no God except Allah and I bear witness that Muhammad is a messenger of Allah. The reciting of this Great Kalimah is the utmost and most outstanding good action that a person can ever do in his or her whole life. When a person recites this Great Kalimah, even once, all the sins that he or she has ever committed in his or her whole lifetime will be forgiven by Allah and will be changed to good deeds. Reciting this Great Kalimah is the excellent action. Enjoining people to good actions means inviting people to recite the Great Kalimah and to prevent people from evil means to prevent people from refusing to acknowledge that there is no God except Allah and that Prophet Muhammad is a Messenger of Allah.
Inviting people to recite the Great Kalimah is known as the work of enjoining good and forbidding evil. Allah has made this work compulsory to all that have recited the Great Kalimah, there is no God except Allah and Muhammad is a Messenger of Allah. This is the work that has to be revived starting in Malaysia initially and later on in the whole world. Whoever has recited the Great Kalimah in Malaysia has to do the work of enjoining good and forbidding evil. The centre of this noble work is every mosque and surau (small mosque) in Malaysia. The training on how to do the work among those who have recited the Great Kalimah will initially be at Masjid Taman Greenwood, Taman Batu, Gombak, Selangor, and later on at all mosques and surau in Malaysia. All male Muslims in Malaysia will made compulsory to undergo training on the work of enjoining good and forbidding evil for a period of at least one week. The trainers who are Government servants will conduct the training. By the Grace of Allah, the manual on how to do the work for both men and women already been written and will be published. Every adult, men and women, among those who have recited the great Kalimah in Malaysia will receive a copy of the manual. Every adult, men and women who has recited the Great Kalimah in Malaysia, are ordered by the Government of Malaysia to do the work of enjoining good and forbidding evil. Women can do the work among women whenever they can. Men have to attend mosques or surau daily and from there, men will go either alone or in a group of two or three to visit every house in the locality. When meet those who have not recited the Great Kalimah, invite them to recite the Great Kalimah. To those who have recited the Great Kalimah, remind them about the meaning of the Great Kalimah and invite them to obey the orders of Allah starting from the first order that is to do the work of enjoining good and forbidding evil. Then invite them to the second order that is to perform the five compulsory daily prayers with congregation at the mosques for men and for women at home.
The work of enjoining good and forbidding evil has to be done initially within their own locality for a minimum of 45 minutes daily and later on in the whole world. Those who have recited the Great Kalimah and have undergone the training on the work of enjoining good and forbidding evil yet refuse to do the work will be regarded as disobeying the order of the Government and actions will be taken against them. They will be disqualified from government awards and scholarships and will have to pay income tax like the non-Muslims. Those who have recited the Great Kalimah and do the work of enjoining good and forbidding evil for a minimum of 45 minutes daily for a period of four months in their locality will be given merits. Among the merits that will be given to them are; they are eligible to receive government contracts, scholarships and awards and will be exempted from paying income tax. In every mosque and surau there will be government officers who will be working as the Mosque Director, Imam, Bilal, Secretary and clerks who will monitor and control the activities of the mosques or surau and the activities of every person in the locality. Articles on the functions and the activities of a mosque already been written in my previous articles in this blog. CLICK CLICK
The work of enjoining good and forbidding evil is very important work that all Muslims males and females in Malaysia must do in order to obtain the true beliefs and the correct mindsets. Upon this true beliefs and correct mindsets comes the correct actions and behavior. This is the most important quality that all Muslims in Malaysia must have in order for Malaysia to become an advanced progressive nation. Upon this quality comes all the other good actions and upon the good actions, Malaysia as an advanced and progressive nation will be realized. A way to encourage Muslims in Malaysia to do the work of enjoining good and forbidding evil is by using films and dramas depicting and imparting the importance of this order of Allah. Good and correct words related to these work must continuously conveyed to the Muslims in Malaysia via the internet, the electronic media, the newspapers and the billboards along the highways. Examples of the words that should be use are; “I invite to good I become good”, “I invite to evils I will becomes evils”, “I invite to good Allah pleased with me”, “I invite to good to please Allah”, “I invite to good to obey Allah”, “I invite non-Muslims to recite the Great Kalimah, I`ll invite them to good. I invite non-Muslims to recite the Great Kalimah, Allah pleased with me.” The Self-talk therapy treatments on “the Work of the Prophet” shall be play on television channels and radios three times daily and the Muslims will be required to take the treatment. The Self-talk therapy on “the Work of the Prophet” consists of six tracks and each track is 10 minutes long that will be played three times a day; once in the morning, once during lunch break and once in the evening. Every Muslim will be able to take the therapy at specific times daily via the television or radio when the self-talk therapy program is broadcasted.

Malaysia shall become an advanced progressive nation by the year 2020.This is our vision. In order to achieve our vision by the year 2020, we must organize a systematic strategy towards achieving our vision. We should lists down the steps that we should take in order to make Malaysia become an advanced progressive nation by the year 2020.
STEP 1.Define our vision. Our Vision is to make Malaysia as an advanced progressive nation by the year 2020.
STEP 2.In order to achieve our vision we must have missions to achieve. We must define the missions that we want to achieve. An advanced progressive nation must have certain missions to achieve. In my opinion, there are twelve missions that Malaysia must achieve in order to become an advanced progressive nation. These twelve missions must be made known to each and every citizen of Malaysia. The whole nation must have the same vision and missions. These twelve missions are:
- Enjoining Good and Forbidding Evil.
- A United and Cohesive Society.
- An Educated and Highly Technological Community.
- A Religious and Highly Tolerant Society.
- A Multilingual Community.
- High Income and High Basic Salary.
- Healthy and Excellence in Sports.
- Food and Basic Necessities Affordable to Everyone.
- A Law Abiding and Well Disciplined Society.
- A Generous and Loving Community.
- A Clean, Well Planned and Beautiful Country
- Hardworking and Good Quality Workers.
STEP 3 In orders to achieve each of these missions; we must have the action plans. The action plan must be followed strictly by the nation. The leaders as well as the people must know exactly what to do in order to achieve our missions. The action plans must be practical and achievable.
STEP4. The results of the action plans must be analyzed and monitored periodically and corrective actions must be taken to rectify the outcomes in case the desired results were not achieved within the prescribed period.
STEP 5 Continuous monitoring and improving the achievement levels of the missions. The achievement levels can be measured objectively using a sample of the population.
When all the twelve missions have been achieved to a level of more than 50%, then Malaysia can be regarded as an advanced progressive nation. When all the twelve missions have been achieved to a level of more than 80%, then Malaysia has become a truly advanced progressive nation.
A country cannot be regarded as an advanced progressive nation based only on the high per capita income of the country. There are situations, the country may have high per capita income but the majority of the population lives in poverty. Although the income of the population could be high but if the cost of living is also high, the population will still be living in poverty. When the cost of basic needs are high, many people will find it difficult to pay the bills for their houses, foods, education, health and cars. Due to high cost of living, many people will have a lot of debts to pay every month. After paying all the debts they will have little or no money left to spend. In order to survive they again resort to borrow from bank that charges with high interests. End up paying every month to the bank with high interests and without realizing it they have becomes slaves to the bank. As a result, everyone in the country needs to work almost twelve hours every day with little or no time to enjoy with their family.
The cost of basic needs increase whenever the government increases the salary of government servants. Indeed it causes great distress to the others who are not government servants. What is the aim of making Malaysia a high income nation, when the cost of goods are always increase? Is having high income will ensure Malaysians to become prosperous. There is no benefit at all to have high income when the cost of basic necessities are also high. Can our government able to control the increasing prices of basic needs or not? As we have observed so far, the government is not able to control the increasing prices of basic needs. Mere advices and words of warning will not help to reduce the prices. Government is not able to control the increasing prices of the basic needs because the setting of the prices lies in the hands of traders and consumers. Traders are not worried whether the poor families (generally are Malays and Indians) can buy the products or not because the rich families (generally are Chinese consumers) at anytime can buy the products. Traders are only worried when their products cannot be sold in the market when they increase the prices. As long as their products can be sold in the market, the traders will continue to increase the prices. I still can remember when the prices of fish such as “Tenggiri” (Spanish Mackerel), “Jenahak” (Golden Snapper) and “Ikan Merah” (Red Snapper) used to be very cheap, but now it has become very expensive because there are peoples who can buy these fishes at high prices. The mushrooming of the Chinese and Tom Yam restaurants have created buyers to these fishes and has caused the prices to increase beyond the ability of an average income earner in this country to buy these fishes. Generally in Malaysia, the Chinese are the traders and wholesalers. As long as they are buyers, the Chinese traders will increase the prices as they are only interested in money and not the welfare of the consumers.
Everyone wants to have high income provided the prices of goods remain the same. A country with high income may not necessarily be that each and everyone in the country would have high income. It could be a situation where only a few individuals in the country have a very high income while the rest of the peoples still have low income. An average income is the total amount of income divide by the total number of population. On the basis of an average income, Malaysia may be regarded as advanced progressive country but in reality the majority of her population may still live in poverty. The buying power of the peoples does not depend only on the amount of salary that they get but also on the prices of goods. When the prices of goods are high, the buying power would still be low although the salary could be high. It is the buying power of the average population that determine whether the country is prosperous or not and not only the salary. In my opinion, although Malaysia may have high income or high per capita income but if the buying power is low, Malaysia is not an advanced progressive country.
We may build high rise buildings, modern highways system, and superb sport centers but the general population is not going to benefit directly on these development. Generally everyone in the country only wants a house of their own, a car to drive their family around and sufficient good food to eat. What is the use of Malaysia having high income, high rise buildings like PETRONAS Twin Tower and motorsport race track like Sepang International Circuit but her population on average is still cannot afford to own a house, an average standard car and to eat sufficiently good food. We have the name as an advanced progressive country but in reality we are not. Malays and the Malays leaders in general are very fond in having only name; shape and appearance of anything but are not really serious in achieving the reality. The Malays have a proverb that has shape their mentality and beliefs and become the main reason why the Malays are backward compared to other races. The proverb in Malay language is “biar papa asal bergaya”. In general, this proverb has shaped the beliefs and mentality of the Malays. Malays and the Malays leaders are only satisfied if they can achieved only the shapes, names and appearance of anything and they are not so motivated to achieve the reality. Many Malays wear religious attires as if they are very religious and pious but in reality they are not. What I think we are trying to achieve is only the cosmetics of an advanced progressive country and not the reality of an advanced progressive nation.

Allah has given the work of the Prophet to those who follows Prophet Muhammad saw. In the Quran Allah said in the approximate meaning, Oh Muhammad, tell your followers, that this my path,(way) to call peoples to Allah with full conviction and this is my path and the path(way) of those who follows me. Allah has given the work of calling peoples to Allah to Prophet Muhammad saw and to all who follows him. Those who follows Prophet Muhammad saw are known as the Prophet saw followers or Umat. Allah said in the Quran with the approximate meaning, you are the best Umat being sent to the entire mankind, because you invite peoples to good and you prevent peoples from evil and you believe in Allah. Allah call the followers of Prophet Muhammad saw as Umat, because this Umat will becomes the means upon which the whole mankind will obtain guidance and blessing of Allah when the followers of Prophet Muhammad saw are doing the work of inviting peoples to Good and preventing peoples from doing evils. What is the meaning of good in the above verse? Good means to be able to recite the Great Kalimah, that I bear witness that there is no God except Allah and I bear witness that Muhammad is the Prophet of Allah and to be able to obey all the orders of Allah in the ways of Prophet Muhammad saw. What is the meaning of evils in the above verse? Evils means not to be able or refuse to recite the Great Kalimah, that I bear witness there is no God except Allah and I bear witness, Muhammad is the Prophet of Allah and not able or refuse to obey all the orders of Allah in the ways of Prophet Muhammad saw. Many do not understand what it really means by the good and evils mention in the verse. Many interpret evils as acts of promiscuity, illicit sex and all other related sexual abuse behaviours. None has ever interpreted it as disinclination to recite the Great Kalimah and the disobedience to obey the first and the second order of Allah which is to deliver the Great Kalimah to those who have verbalised the Great Kalimah and to perform the five times prayers with congregation. Our Islamic authorities do form groups known as “Pencegah Maksiat” to combat activities related to evils which we normally understand as acts of promiscuity and other acts of sexual abuses. (more…)
Obesity among school children is attracting the attention of the Health Ministry of Malaysia and the Minister of Health issued a rules to all school canteens all over the country that nasi lemak cannot be sold to school children. The school canteen operators argue, if they cannot sell nasi lemak, what should they sell to the school children? Nasi lemak has been the traditional breakfast for the Malays for centuries. Malays used to take rice cook with coconut milk which is known as nasi lemak with sambal of dried small fish known as ikan bilis as the main food for breakfast. Malays used to be farmers or fishermen and they need more carbohydrate in order to provide them the energy to do work. Nasi lemak provides the carbohydrate that the farmers and the fishermen need. Now not many Malays are farmers or fishermen. Most Malays are now working as government servants, professionals, and businessmen. They do not need that much carbohydrate as the farmers and fishermen needs. All children go to school but they do not need much carbohydrate as they do not use that much energy to do work. The habits of eating rice cook in coconut milk in the early morning as breakfast continue throughout the generations. It passes on from generation to generation and the habit of eating nasi lemak dies hard. Can we stop our children from eating nasi lemak at school by giving the rules that canteen operator cannot sell nasi lemak? Our children are used to eat nasi lemak and if they cannot buy nasi lemak from the school canteen, our children will buy nasi lemak from stalls outside the school. Can we stop the stall outside the school from selling nasi lemak? The government cannot stop people from eating nasi lemak and neither the government can stop people from selling nasi lemak. Rules to stop the school canteen operator from selling nasi lemak will not solve the problems of obesity among our children. The Health Ministry is pointing to only the habit of eating nasi lemak as the cause of obesity. What about the habit of eating mee or noodles? Rice and noodles are all carbohydrate and when taken in large quantity or more than what that person needs they will be converted into fat and stored in the body leading to obesity.
Today is a great day for Optometry in Twintech International University College of Technology. Today we are celebrating the coming back of our first batch of semester 8 students from Chennai India, after completing their 4 months clinical optometry training at Sankara Nethralaya Eye Hospital in Chennai India. Today we are also celebrating the good news conveyed to us by the panel of MQA that has visited our Faculty on the 13 and 14 of April 2011, which is yesterday and day before yesterday that Insha’Allah we get back our Accreditation that has been uphold since 15 July 2010. The proposal will be submitted to the Joint Technical committee which probably with have their meeting either in May or Jun 2011. After the meeting, a formal letter will be written by MQA to our University, to award back our accreditation. Today we are also celebrating the good news that they will also propose to JTC that our semester 8 students can graduate after we are awarded the accreditation. Not the least today we are also celebrating my one year service with Twintech, initially as the Head of Programme and later on as the Dean of the Faculty. I started to work with Twintech International University College of Technology as Head of Programme of Optometry on the 15 April 2010. When I started to take the post as the Head of the Programme, there were not a single optometrist was with me in the Faculty. The Faculty at that time was named as Faculty of Optometry, Pharmacy and Health Sciences and the Dean of the Faculty at that time was Mr. Yusuf Hussein a registered pharmacy. I still remember the first day I entered my room as the Head of the Programme of Optometry at Twintech which is on the 15 April 2010. The room was not cleaned and the lecturer who has moved to SEGI College has not moved all of his belonging from the room. Later in the evening the lecturer concerned came to the Faculty and moved all his properties. (more…)
It is the wishes of all the priests who attended the meeting in Penang which was reportedly organized by DAP to see that one day Christianity will be the official religion of Malaysia and the Prime Minister of Malaysia will also be a Christian. It was made the headline news in Utusan Malaysia and certainly the news was a very provoking one to the Muslims in Malaysia. I do not know the sentiments of the Muslims who belong to the political party of PAS CLICK and the world Tarikat group of Jamat Tabligh CLICK toward the statement. I think generally many Muslims in Malaysia are not happy with the statement. In order for Christianity to become the official religion of Malaysia and a Christian as the Prime Minister of Malaysia, the majority of the Malaysians needs to be Christians. In order for the majority of the Malaysians to become Christians, the Christians particularly their priests must double their efforts to preach Christianity to the Malaysians particularly to the Chinese, the Indians and the Malays. It could be more difficult to convert the Malays to Christianity but it is probably much less difficult to convert the Chinese and the Indians to Christianity. When most of the Chinese and the Indians have become Christians and most of the indigenous people of Sabah and Sarawak have also become Christians, the majority of Malaysians at that time would be Christians. When the majority of Malaysians are Christians, then in a country that practice democracy, the Prime Minister could be a Christian and Christianity could become the official religion of Malaysia. It is not something that is impossible to achieve. As long as the Christians and their priests keep working harder in converting the Malaysians particularly the Chinese and the Indians to Christianity, this dream may become a reality. The conference of all Malaysian Christian priests held in Penang was to stimulate the directions and the goals that all the priests in Malaysia must undertake in the years to come. The conference was aimed to set up the goals that all the Christians in Malaysia must strive hard to achieve. In other words Christians in Malaysia has awaken from their dormant state and have started to become more vigorous in achieving their goal of making Christianity as the official religion of Malaysia and a Christian as the Prime Minister of Malaysia.

We have six pillars of Iman and five pillars of Islam. The six pillars of Iman are the orders of Allah to our heart and the five pillars of Islam are the orders of Allah to our body. Heart is the king of the body and whatever the heart direct the body will do. On the other hand, our heart are influenced by what the body does particularly what has been spoken repeatedly by our tongue. Prophet Muhammad saw said in the approximate meaning, “A man will not become right until his heart is right and a man’s heart will not be right until his Iman is right and his Iman will not be right until his speeches are right”. What a man spokes repeatedly will becomes his beliefs and Allah has given us the best of all words to be spoken repeatedly by all men so that his beliefs are correct and that word is “I bear witness that there is no God except Allah and I bear witness that Muhammad is the messenger of Allah”. The first pillar of Islam is to bear witness there is no God except Allah and I bear witness Muhammad is the Prophet of Allah. In order this Great Kalimah become embedded into the heart of every men and women, this Great Kalimah has to be spoken repeatedly by men and women. The first pillar of Islam is to bear witness that, there is no God except Allah and I bear witness Muhammad is the Prophet of Allah. In order for this Great Kalimah to go into our heart we have to fulfil the right of the Great Kalimah. What is the right of this Great Kalimah? The right of this Great Kalimah is when we see disobedience to the orders of Allah or evils; we must forbid the evils by inviting peoples to good. We must start forbidding the worst of all evils. The worst of all evils committed by men is there do not want to bear witness that there is no God except Allah and to testify Muhammad is the Prophet of Allah. The best of good deed is to bear witness that there is no God except Allah and to testify that Muhammad is the Prophet of Allah. When a person recite the Great Kalimah, all his or her sins are washed away and converted to good deeds. A person who does not want to recite the Great Kalimah is known as non-Muslims and a person who has recited the Great Kalimah is known as Muslim. The second most evils committed by men is, even though they had recited the Great Kalimah yet they do not convey the Great Kalimah to those who have not recited the Great Kalimah and the third most evils committed by men is, they do not perform five times prayers.
