Watching from a Distance
By Masiding Noor Yahya
When a proud Muslim people is doomed due to their own making, they become slaves of evil desires and greed and that they even celebrate Islam the pagan way.
These are the people who love cheating and deceiving others, who practice corruption and injustice as a way of their life. They blame each other, and even God, when His Wrath strikes them as a consequence of their evil practices.
Indeed, no one can help them but only their own selves. The Holy Qur’an has warned them that the Most Merciful and Most Beneficent will not change their condition unless they do change themselves. This is the truth.
Oh dear people, fear of the Fire in Hell or the Curses on this Earth. Avoid such evil culture, return to the Almighty and never turn back to these evils. May He whose Name Most Exalted forgive us our sins and give us what is good in this world and in the Hereafter.
AGAINST TRADITIONAL POLITICS.
MILF-UBJP’s proclamation of support to VP Leni Robredo will determine after the 2022 elections if the MILF-led BARMM commands people’s popular support or not after four of the 5 provincial governors in BARMM under their government go for the Unity Team.
Earlier, “Regional Chief Minister Ahod “Hadji Murad” Ebrahim has urged colleagues and followers to rally all candidates of the United Bangsamoro Justice Party (UBJP) in the coming elections, warning them expulsion from the party as well as the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) and Bangsamoro Islamic Armed Forces (BIAF) if they fail to do so.” This remains to be seen.
Marami pong KoMEDIAnte dito sa Iligan at CDO na ginagawang ‘milking cows’ ang mga local chief executives and other officials ng Lanao del Sur. Hindi po tayo kasama jan dahil legit po tau. Katunayan, tayo lang po ang may pahayagan (newspapers) dito sa Iligan which is regularly coming out dahil tayo lang din po ang pahayagan sa lokalidad na may sariling offset printing press machine.
POLITIKA LANG DAW
If you call yourself ‘Muslim’ or appear to be one, how can you afford, even be proud, to support one to become president of the Philippines when he doesn’t even pay taxes and keeps denying his family steals public money? It’s damned wrong to say, “Politika lang ito.”
I’d guess PRRD will endorse Leni… unless wala election. Sudden if not drastic windshift. Guess ko lang naman.
Ophoon aya makalilibet a lider ko kandidato na masiig go madengki na gyanan i petharoon a bakabo arap.
If BBM wins, he won’t stay long in power. There’ll be another People’s Power, this time a wake up revolt from a bad slumber.
THOUGHT FROM THE BLESSED RAMADAN
4 days from now Blessed Ramadan is gone. Do we feel the hunger of the hungry? The poverty of the poor? The suffering of the sick? The struggle of the oppressed? The meaning of humility, patience, courage and discipline?
Do we understand why we are the best of peoples evolved for mankind because we enjoin right conduct and forbid indecency and believe in Allah?
Certainly, there are lessons from Ramadan to learn for healing the evils’ wreck on humanity especially on the Muslim Ummah, and for saving the world.
