Personally, I think HUDUD can work, not just for Muslims but for others too. HUDUD it is not just about cutting hands that we seem it is so huge and covers a lot of areas. We have seen it works before during the Khalifah Ar-Rasyidin. How from Abu Bakar to Ali it changes the lives of those pitiful Arabs to be one of the most prosperous economy and society, strong military and solid foreign trade. And it changes and alleviates them in such a short time. In short years those guys are at PAR with the ROMANS and PERSIANS. And it just not about the religion, it’s about the system too.
But bare in mind, those people like Abu Bakar, Umar, Usman and Ali worked hard on developing the systems that supporting the HUDUD law, from it legal, economic, currency system which locked on stable commodity and even the simple post office, everything are developed to support the HUDUD system. Everyday is EUREKA for them. They even seek from non-Muslims advice too to ensure it works for all. They didn’t depend on Quran verses only like what PAS people doing now, just cut and paste and then post it on youtube to gain votes.
Sadly, the system that need to be further develop to support HUDUD system basically come to a slow down or pause after Ali was assassinated. And it was not rigorously continued. It is very sad that Al-Azhar University doesn’t play that role too, nowadays. Most of those students that graduated from there are judgementalists that keep judging you are not Muslim enough, bla bla bla and all. And it is the same thing with our religious schools in our country. It is sad to see that. That’s the fact.
If we want HUDUD system to happen, the supporting system that shoulders HUDUD need to be developed first. Why? Cause God gave us brains to think and figure out about it, GOD didn’t give us all the answers, some we need to think for ourselves. If not, no point GOD creates AKAL. And it might take years or even hundred of years.
If conventional banking today took more than 400 years to be developed since renaissance, why cant HUDUD? We should think about it and give it a shot. And we have found out that voting for PAS doesn’t guarantee the implementation or even further detailed development of the system. With Karpal, LGE, Anwar around, it will definitely PAUSED.
So where do we start? Let’s start to break free from conventional western liberal economy and social system first. Then one at the time, we find ways to develop it. Like today, there’s a guy who come up with DINAR system and Islamic Banking system. And we all know whos that guy. That idea might be our escape from the unfair conventional economic system. That idea might be our salvation.
Even though it is not perfect or at infant stage, we should look into it and start to support it. Economy is primary part of our life and HUDUD is a system that were designed to govern our life, so therefore good and fair economic system I can consider part of HUDUD too. And somehow I think, currency speculators deserve their hand to be cut (Anwar wont want that happened to his speculators friends, right?)
Actually, HUDUD can be implemented but not today. As in stages, the structures that supporting HUDUD need to be erected first, such as financial instruments, currency systems, forensic, etc. And it will take hundred of years of continuous support and research. And this situation will be like REINVENTING THE WHEEL. I don’t mind reinventing the wheel, as long it is our wheel and it is fair for us all.
As for me, I’m one of the people will support any alternatives that will break us free from the current systems that have failed us all. And I noticed, there’s one guy who proposed alternative currency system to USD the DINAR and that guy is an UMNO guy. We can start there. From there, we could build a more fairer financial instruments free of speculation and unfairness, And from there, we can have our HUDUD a pure JUSTICE FOR ALL.
Therefore, I would like to say NO to Anwar Ibrahim and his USD currency system and unregulated capitalism system. The world need to change, it is time Malaysian move on with the tides. Europe have change it from Dollar to Euro, why can’t we?
If PR wants to adapt HUDUD laws, a lot of bankers and currency speculators will loose their hands, this includes SOROS too. Now the question, is PR really wants to adapt HUDUD laws? Or just a LIP SERVICE to this country Moslems to gain more votes?
I doubt Anwar and his DAP lackeys want SOROS to loose his hand. If SOROS loose his hand, how he going to sign the fund transfer documents?
But first things first, before even HUDUD comes around, we have to break free from the current liberal western systems first, slowly but surely. I am not a western hater, but those liberalized western ways or systems that Anwar proposed have proven that caused damages and harm, not just to us but to their own western people. We have seen what happened in US, Europe and latest Dubai. It is time for change. Bare in mind those US, Europe are trying to change too from the normalities and standards that have been used for very long time. If they are changing, why don’t we?
We can start by saying NO! first to Anwar Ibrahim. Or Anwar himself have to abandon his own systems, ways and his own systems, ways and his US friends like Shaha Riza, Wolfowitz, etc which I doubt he would do that.
This is the primary problem and the KEY REASON, when people asked Nik Aziz or any PAS Ulamas, why don’t you make Hudud happen in Kelantan? And they cant answer it, yet END UP GIVING EXCUSES.
Syeikh Al Juburi zaman dulu2
“But around the 15th Century of the Christian era, fatwas were made by Muslim Ulamas that IQRAQ or read was intended for reading and studying religion only. From then on, the Muslim scientists, physicians, mathematicians etc stopped their study of these subjects in order to study religion exclusively.”
Because the Ulamas today doesn’t have a clue what to do next, because they aren’t trained in the supporting system disciplines like the Ulamas in the old days. That’s why people like Abu Bakr As Siddiq, Umar Al-Khattab, Usman bin Affan and Ali and before 14th Centuries Ulamas are able to make the Islamic Laws work nicely, not just that they managed to turn such a poor Arab civilization into one of the greatest in the world, and it become the a shining light to the world.
You guys check it for yourselves the timeframe. Islamic civilization were at the highest during 700 till 1300, when it reaches 15 centuries, it start to deteriorate (merudum) and guys, check out the statement highlighted above, is it justified enough?
Open the history books, the rise and deterioration of Islamic Civilization, satisfy yourselves.
The question is :
IS PR REALLY WANTS TO ADAPT HUDUD LAWS? OR JUST A LIP SERVICE TO THIS COUNTRY MOSLEMS TO GAIN MORE VOTES?
If SOROS loose his hands, how he going to sign the fund transfer documents?
The answer is time and resources and hard work and reality. And HUDUD is not just a mere Islamic laws, it is a system. And it has worked before during the 4 Khalifah Rasyidin, Such a short time those loose Arabs civilization have changed from ZERO to HERO at par with ROMANS and PERSIANS. This is a fact. And these 4 Khalifahs really do the developments works to support the laws. Not just mere rhetorics. It is sad that after the assassination of Ali R.A, the R&D were slow down and it end up at pause cause during that moment, Moslems were busy on expansion and fighting among each other. The Abbasiyah and Ummayah conflicts. And somehow it looks almost similar here in Malaysia, but smaller scale.
