Today is the second day of Ramadhan Al-Mubarak, the holiest month for us Muslims.
It’s the month of sacrifice; to sacrifice all our unreligious obsessions and greeds for the sake of Allah and the month where Muslims are urged to intensify their prayers and submissions to God the Almighty.
Ramadhan is also the month when all Muslims like us are encouraged to work out introspections to ourselves and to repent, for all misdeeds we commit especially towards fellow human beings irrespective of race and religious faith.
To the fortunate this is also the month to pay tithes to the poor as we Muslims believe what we earn and secure are not necessarily all for us.
We believe we are just the medium of God to dispense some to the needy and those who within the Asnaf, who are fit to receive assistance.
I hope the sense of sacrifice should be inspired and practiced by our big UMNO leaders and do the sacrifices, may be by resigning and withdrawing from positions which have been their important tools to vandalize our beloved party.
Conversely, some may have to be brave enough to go head on with these obstinate leaders for the sake of the country and the people and this is also part of the sacrifices a good Muslim can do in this month of Ramadhan.
The War of Uhud and many other wars in Islam happened in this month of Ramadhan and there were many and numerous incidences in history of our religion where important going-ons were in this holy month.
Changing for the better would be done in this month of mubarak as the long history of Islam have proven to everyone that drastic changes happened in the month of Ramadhan.
I do hope and pray that the actual changes in our leadership should at least start to move within this holy month and we can joyously celebrate the Hari Raya Aidilfitri…hopefully and God willing.
