esham, why are you not teaching your children religion?

“Why are you not teaching your children agama?” I could sense how concern she was. It was in her eyes and her face.

“Make me a promise, that you will get an ustaz to teach them. I know you will not be able to teach them”.

“Look at B and look at D, look at their children. How pious they are! Look at adam, look at S, look at A and look at N.”

“Emak, I teach my children religion”.

“mananya?” sarcasm in the most subtle form as only emak can administer

“I teach religion everyday, every minute. I teach them that all promises are to be honored, i teach them to care for parents, I demonstrate to them to be fair in business dealing and in measurement, I showed them the kambings and ayam that practice free sex, I tell them about jenahak and senohong and gelama and ikan duri, “mula-mula cakap bohong lama-lama mencuri”, i teach them to value life, play hard work hard, i demonstrate to them to care for the less fortunate, to protect their kin”

” I admit though that their Solat have been lax. Do you want to communicate directly with God? Why don’t you invoke that super power? Go and speak to God? that’s how I get them excited about solat. Little success so far, but I am sure they will need to have that access to God.”

” I admit though I have not been teaching them much adat or traditions or rituals”

” Look at PM, when he died the children could not even recite the Quran for him” she pounded further

Ouch…

“but emak, I teach them how to find the One God. Go observe and feel the  power and presence of God around you. Go and travel the world to find God”

I agree they need to discover the Quran, the Book, the Revelations. They need to know to read the Compass.

Ustaz? mmmmmm

One Response to esham, why are you not teaching your children religion?

  1. Congratulation, your wisdoms are in accordance with the Quran, just not sure about the kambing and ayam free sex….

    You already found your Ustaz at [55:1] The Most Gracious.[55:2] Teacher of the Quran.[55:3] Creator of the human beings.[55:4] He taught them how to distinguish.

    Righteousness Defined

    [2:177] Righteousness is not turning your faces towards the east or the west. Righteous are those who believe in GOD, the Last Day, the angels, the scripture, and the prophets; and they give the money, cheerfully, to the relatives, the orphans, the needy, the traveling alien, the beggars, and to free the slaves; and they observe the Contact Prayers (Salat) and give the obligatory charity (Zakat); and they keep their word whenever they make a promise; and they steadfastly persevere in the face of persecution, hardship, and war. These are the truthful; these are the righteous.

    The Major Commandments

    [6:151] Say, “Come let me tell you what your Lord has really prohibited for you: You shall not set up idols besides Him. You shall honor your parents. You shall not kill your children from fear of poverty – we provide for you and for them. You shall not commit gross sins, obvious or hidden. You shall not kill – GOD has made life sacred – except in the course of justice. These are His commandments to you, that you may understand.”
    [6:152] You shall not touch the orphans’ money except in the most righteous manner, until they reach maturity. You shall give full weight and full MEASURE when you trade, equitably. We do not burden any soul beyond its means. You shall be absolutely just when you bear witness, even against your relatives. You shall fulfill your covenant with GOD. These are His commandments to you, that you may take heed.

    Shu`aib:
    Cheating, Dishonesty Condemned

    [7:85] To Midyan we sent their brother Shu`aib. He said, “O my people, worship GOD; you have no other god beside Him. Proof has come to you from your Lord. You shall give full weight and full MEASURE when you trade. Do not cheat the people out of their rights. Do not corrupt the earth after it has been set straight. This is better for you, if you are believers.

    Shu`aib: One and the Same Message

    [11:84] To Midyan we sent their brother Shu`aib. He said, “O my people, worship GOD; you have no other god beside Him. Do not cheat when you MEASURE or weigh. I see that you are prosperous, and I fear for you the retribution of an overwhelming day.

    [11:85] “O my people, you shall give full MEASURE and full weight, equitably. Do not cheat the people out of their rights, and do not roam the earth corruptingly.

    [17:35] You shall give full MEASURE when you trade, and weigh equitably. This is better and more righteous.

    [26:181] “You shall give full MEASURE when you trade; do not cheat. [26:182] “You shall weigh with an equitable scale. [26:183] “Do not cheat the people out of their rights, and do not roam the earth corruptingly.

    [83:1] Woe to the cheaters.[83:2] Who demand full MEASURE when receiving from the people.[83:3] But when giving them the MEASUREs or weights, they cheat.
