Since Ramadhan is coming soon, this means that I would have to up my ante in my online da’wah efforts and start focusing on developing and building my Islamic niche websites. Things have not been going so well for me recently on the business-side (partly due to the Eurozone crisis and the recent Penguin update from Google), but I trust in Allah SWT that the situation will improve soon, insha’allah. On that aspect, I have looked into several initiatives to increase my $$$ so that it can be used to fund my da’wah work. May Allah SWT grant me success in this endeavour.
I am supposed to post the evidence that was revealed by Pendedahan Ekslusif which nailed Adlin Abd Jalil aka Makcik Shit al Flowerhorni right to the wall, but I am in Eid mode so I don’t feel the urge to do so. I will do that after my Eid holidays.
In the meantime, enjoy the above photo of my wife and I, taken during the first day of Eid al-Fitr.
No doubt that is offensive, at least to me. And not because of the crappy reasons listed here on several Malay blogs….I don’t buy it. I certainly do not believe in any conspirary theories involving Freemasons or Illuminati, and I certainly don’t think the images in the ad “represent” anything. The only reason I find it offensive is because it equates Eid al-Fitr with a certain pagan festival that involves an old man being pulled by reindeers. Ring any bells?
Whoever did the ad was certainly not a Muslim if he/she is so ignorant of this little fact.
Or at least I am hoping that I could stay away from polemical rebuttals throughout the month of the blessed Month of Ramadan. I’ve started a religious mini-site on Lailatul Qadar and a blog dealing with basic Islam issues. But me being me with the activist streak, it just seems impossible to do. These Islamophobes do not know when to call a truce, so there is no time for me to rest either.
As it is, I have been downloading and leeching a lot of e-books lately, especially pertaining to material on Atheism and its core “beliefs”. I never had any real interest to deal with Atheism before, but for the past few years I have noticed that Atheists are becoming at the forefront of a massive intellectual onslaught on Islam. The Christian missionaries are still around, but they have somewhat taken a backseat. Hence, due to this changing phenomenon, I’ve decided to adapt and deal with Atheism; or in particular, a certain brand known as “militant atheism”.
I certainly have a lot of catch-up to do this Ramadan.
In this Blessed Month of Ramadhaan I would like to take the opportunity to wish all Muslims “Ramadhaan Mubarak” and may this month be a joyous occassion for you to complete your fast and seek the mercy of Allah s.w.t.
