|Good book written by Syed Akbar Ali|
26 February 2012 - I have just finish reading this book written by Syed Akbar Ali entitled Malaysia and the club of doom. I must say that this is one of the finest material written by a local Malay Muslim in Malaysia explaining the true essence of Islam and how after the death of the prophet, Islam were abused to an extent Muslims all over the world nowadays are in a confused state about the true teaching of Islam. Islam is a way of life (ad-din), simple and easy to be embrace and shouldn't be seen as an absolute law. It is very hard to explain the essence of Islam and such we can see today many people were easily conned by those that wears a robe, a serban, kept a beard and chants a few hadiths, some parts of the holy scriptures here and there for self centered purposes. Many Muslims clerics nowadays stressed more on how Muslims should adopt the Arabs culture than the true teaching of Islam as a way of life. People get easily confused and more easily to be pulled into hating others that are different then them due to these hate preachers. I hope many more Muslims in this country would realize that God is a oneself spiritual journey and not just about memorizing dogma. Encourage more Muslims around the world to read this book, because it was written by a local Muslims that is very concerned about Islam and not about getting votes or seeking an attentions.
