بسم الله الر حمن الر حيم

Minda mereka terus rakus dan menggugah serakah dengan mengundang malapetaka , menunjukkan kekuatannya . Alpakah kita yang kini menerjah wadah dan fitrah minda mereka dibumi bertuah sendiri . Jangan kau pandang sebelah mata menilai ulah si GAGAH meniupkan serulingnya ..melaungkan kebesarannya .sedang kita asyik alpa dengan wacana agama memporakperandakan minda saudara kita . Menjauhkan persahabatan sesama kita , apakah bisa memungkinkan kemajuan tanpa menghilangkan rasa cinta yang terarah pada akal budi bangsa dalam kita mengecap modenisasi dunia . Jika kita sangka siGAGAH itu memang GAGAH ..seharusnya kita saling ingat mengingatkan dan waspada bencana yang mungkin suatu hari akan menerjah dimuka jendela rumah kita sendiri ..bayangkan yang indah dan telusuri makna disebalik khabar berita .

US, S Korea begin joint military drills
Mon Feb 28, 2011 4:0AM

South Korea and the United States on Monday morning kicked of their annual joint military drills amid continuing tensions on the Korean Peninsula. (file photo)
The US and South Korean militaries have launched their major military drills despite North Korea's warnings that the exercises could lead to an "all-out war.”

The 11-day Key Resolve/Foal Eagle drills are the first regularly scheduled joint drills between Seoul and Washington since a North Korean artillery barrage on Yeonpyeong Island on November 23, which left two South Korean marines and two civilians dead.

Pyongyang has denounced the drills as a provocative move and a pretext to invade North Korea, while the US and South Korean officials say the exercise is defensive in nature, AFP reported.

The exercises focus on raising the allies' ability to defend against small, sudden attacks by the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK), said the Combined Forces Command, adding that the drills are aimed at strengthening the allies' readiness against all potential threats.

However, the North's military on Sunday threatened to retaliate against the drills with a full-scale military attack that would turn Seoul into a "sea of fire.”

"If the aggressors launch provocation for a 'local war', the world will witness unprecedented all-out counteraction on the part of the army and people of the DPRK (North Korea)," the North Korean military said.

"It will also see such merciless counteraction as engulfing Seoul in sea of flames, whereby to smash every move for confrontation with unimaginable strategy and tactics."

A total of 12,300 US troops and some 200,000 service members, including reservists from South Korea, will participate in the joint military drills, according to officials.

In 2010, tension on the Korean Peninsula reached its highest level since the 1950s' Korean War.

On March 2, the 1,200-ton South Korean warship, Cheonan, sank near the inter-Korea maritime border, resulting in the deaths of 46 South Korean sailors.

Though Seoul accuses Pyongyang of involvement in the sinking of its warship, the latter rejects the claim.

Jones up to the task of driving US-Malaysia relations

With Malaysia-US relations at a cruising altitude, US Ambassador Paul W. Jones will certainly be kept busy during his term here.
THERE are great expectations on United States Ambassador to Malaysia Paul W. Jones, and the recently-posted envoy looks groomed for the task.
The urgency of action on his part is apparent. Last week, Jones was at the Semengoh Nature Reserve and Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre in Sarawak and on Wednesday he was checking on a US-funded English Language assistance programme in Terengganu. Under this project, students are taught English by young American university graduates.
Next week, he’ll be making his third trip to Penang - this time for a “pow wow” with American Chamber of Commerce companies gathering there. The father of two has begun to take a liking for local food (he gives the thumbs up to the curry mee in Penang), the choices “vetted” by wife Catherine, who is an author of food and health books.
Jones: ‘It’s a very important year for engagement in South-East Asia and Malaysia is a real focus of that’
“We tried the hawker food in Tanjung Bungah in Penang and it was just great,’’ says the dapper envoy, who visited Batu Caves soon after his posting last September. One of his priorities is to link up younger Americans and Malaysians, and the early outcome already looks promising.
“We did this wonderful event at my home where we said goodbye to 50 Malaysian exchange students who were going to spend six months with American families and high schools there.
“And we were welcoming 20 Americans who arrived to teach in rural schools in Terengganu. The two (groups) met for the first time and within half-an-hour, they were dancing and singing together and having a wonderful time,’’ he says in an interview with Sunday Star on Thursday.
Jones, a career member of the State Department’s Senior Foreign Service, is also fast catching up with the Twitter and Facebook social networking frenzy here. “In Kuala Terengganu, I mentioned to students at a girls’ school that I was on Facebook. Within an hour, I had several of the students commenting on my page and I have been commenting back.
“It’s a great way to stay in touch with people,’’ adds the envoy, who says that he hadn’t been that active on both US-based sites prior to his posting. Among others, Jones spoke about his passion for education, the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPP) negotiations with Malaysia, visa applications to the US, the resilience of the US economy and the WikiLeaks saga.
Q: Last week, you were in Sarawak visiting a wildlife rehabilitation centre and yesterday (Wednesday) you were visiting schools in Terengganu, and you’ve been up to Batu Caves. You’re having a great time?
A: We’re having a wonderful time. There’s a lot to see in this country. There are a lot of partnerships that we have got going in a number of different areas. Education in Terengganu, particularly. In Sarawak, we work on cultural preservation, conservation and a number of different issues. And I’ll be up in Penang next week.
Bound for the US: Malaysian students with Jones at the launch of season 2 of Field Trip USA.
Q: I hear you’ve already been to Penang and given the hawker food the thumbs up!
A: (Laughs) This will be my third trip to Penang, both for work and pleasure. Next week, there is going to be the annual summit for American Chamber of Commerce companies with the Chief Minister and we will talk through the business environment and see if there are any issues we need to address.
Q: I’ve interviewed several of your predecessors. The job of diplomacy is never completed but what do you hope to try and accomplish in the near term here?
A: Here are my priorities as instructed by President Obama and Secretary Clinton. One is in the area of education. I think we have got a lot of good foundation and we can do a lot more together that also builds mutual understanding and people-to-people ties. President Obama is also very focused on entrepreneurialism. We have a number of programmes to support entrepreneurialism and outreach to youth. So we’ve got English Language, educational ties, entrepreneurialism, trade and investment. I think we can make progress on negotiations going on this year on the Trans-Pacific Trade Partnership (TPP). There’s a lot we can do in the area of cultural interaction which we’ve started on. I am excited and optimistic about the years ahead.
Q: US-based social networking sites Twitter and Facebook are immensely popular here. Have you been fully exploiting the open Internet in Malaysia to connect with Malaysians?
A: I have done some of this in the past but I came here and saw how connected Malaysians are and how particularly focused on Facebook a lot of people were. In Kuala Terengganu, I mentioned to students at a girls’ school that I was in Facebook. I just told them that Ambassador Jones is MyHandle and within one hour, I had several of the students commenting on my page and I have been commenting back. So it’s a great way to stay in touch with people.
Q: US-Malaysia relations are at a cruising altitude. Do you foresee changes in the relationship, say in the next decade or so, which will take us higher?
A: Well, a decade is a long way to look ahead. I think 2010 will be seen, as we look back, as sort of a turning point. A lot happened. We had some very important senior visits with Prime Minister Najib travelling to Washington, Secretary Clinton coming which was the first bilateral visit for a Secretary of State in 15 years, and (Defence) Secretary Gates coming too. Neither of them had ever set foot in Malaysia and so that’s a real breakthrough. We have a president who was born in Hawaii and spent some of his childhood in Indonesia, has real experience and family members from around the world and family members who are Muslim. He has a tremendous interest and connection with this part of the world. I think we have opportunities to take the relationship even further.
When I was back in Washington just under three weeks ago, I had the opportunity to meet President Obama and I can say Malaysia is on his mind, as is Asia generally. It’s a very important year this year for the US’ relations with Asia. It’s a very important year for engagement in Southeast Asia and I think Malaysia is a real focus of that.
Q: You spoke about your passion for education. You have this English Teaching Assistant (ETA) programme in Terengganu, Field Trip USA and the English Access microscholarship programme in Malaysia, among several others. What are your thoughts on Malaysians and Americans getting together more at the younger generation level?
A: When you see the younger generation getting together, it just clicks right away. I think people sometimes undervalued the relations between our two countries’ and peoples’. But when you get the young people together, it clicks. We did this wonderful event at my home where we said goodbye to 50 “YES” exchange students, Malaysians who were going to spend six months with an American family and in a high school anywhere in the US. And then we were welcoming the 20 English Teaching Assistants who arrived to teach in rural schools in Terengganu. The two (groups) met for the first time and within half-an-hour, they were dancing and singing together and having a wonderful time. Now they’re in touch via Facebook, sharing experiences together. First-time experiences both in Malaysia and the United States. That is to me what President Obama was speaking about in Cairo, about mutual understanding and respect. That’s how you build it. Because it is not just (about) one student or one teacher. All of them havefamily members and friends and they are projecting this relationship and understanding. It reaches across thousands. So I am passionate and excited about it.

Q: On the US Peace Corps programme, is there any headway?
A: You have a terrific and very well-known ambassador in Washington in Datuk Seri Jamaluddin Jarjis. He’s known affectionately in Washington as Ambassador “JJ”. And I can tell you anywhere you go in Washington, people know him whether it’s Congress or the executive branch or elsewhere. The two of us took a trip to Terengganu in order to see on the ground if the proposal that we are developing really matches the experience. We have a proposal that is quite ready for our governments to look at and see how far we can go, how quickly we want to go, to scale up some of the programmes we have and one of it is in Terengganu. Our conclusion coming away was – this really works! It takes a lot of human personal connection and we are going to scale it up in a way that ensures that we do right by the people in the communities and the teachers coming. It’s a model that works and I am optimistic.
Q: On the tertiary front, John Hopkins University is to set up its first offshore medical school in Malaysia. How do you see this, and what’s next on the horizon?
A: We are very excited about that. I met the entire leadership team at my home when they came and signed the agreement during Secretary Clinton’s visit. They are so interested in the medical experience that exists already in Malaysia and the collaboration that doctors from the US and Malaysia can work on treatments, and on different ways that diseases can manifest in different countries. President Obama has appointed science envoys to countries and regions in the world. The one he recently appointed for Malaysia is a woman named Dr Rita Colwell, she is going to come out during the course of this year. She is the former director of the National Science Foundation and we are starting to speak with her and are going to link her up with the Science Adviser in the Prime Minister’s Office and other people here to explore areas we can move ahead on. Particularly in areas to implement the science and technology agreement that Secretary Clinton signed when she was here. So I think we have got a lot of promising areas to explore. When I was in Sarawak, I visited this biodiversity centre and there is very exciting work going on there. We have an American, a Yale University graduate in biochemistry, working with them. There’s an awful lot out there. What we need to do is to pull it together and come out with an agenda and see how we (can) move forward.
Q: There is very little focus in the area of Southeast Asian studies in US universities, and yet historically the US has had a lot to do in the region. There is hardly any scholarship offered by US universities on Islam studies, despite the great interest in the religion. How do you respond?
A: I don’t know … I’m skeptical that there are hardly any scholarships offered on the study of Islam or Southeast Asia in the US. It’s an area, as you indicated, of growing interest in the US and actually of very high interest among think-tanks in Washington. In the Asia Society, for example, there is great expertise and a lot of back and forth between scholars and students on studies in Southeast Asia, and Islam in particular. So I don’t see any impediments to that. I think we are going to grow in our relationship. 2011 is going to be a very consequential year for the US’ relations with Asia. We are speaking very intensively with particularly the countries of Southeast Asia about how to develop our relationship. We started the year with President Hu (Jintao of China) visiting Washington. A very important and win-win visit from our point of view. We will end the year with the East Asia Summit where President Obama will be the very first US President to participate in it in Indonesia, and then the Apec Summit hosted by President Obama in Honululu. There’s a lot that we’ll be working on together.
Q: We hear that visa applications by Malaysians are increasing. How many US visas were issued to Malaysians last year?
A: We issued about 30,000 visas last year (22% increase compared to 2009). The good news is that Malaysians generally do not have a hard time getting visas. About 95% of those who apply receive their visas, most in a couple of days. Student visa applications are also up. We have a little over 6,000 Malaysian students in the US now. We would welcome more and are actually expanding our educational advisory centres. There is one in Kuala Lumpur that has just gone digital and another in Penang. When I was in Sarawak, we were talking about expanding one to the library there. We want to reach out much more to see if we can expand the number of students travelling to the US.
Q: Any good news to share about the resilience of the American economy? What is the latest you’re hearing from the Chairman of the Fed?
A: When I was in Washington, you could really sense the growing confidence and relief that the economic hard times were getting behind us. Unemployment remains high but companies are posting profits particularly in the high-tech sector which is a great benefit to Malaysia. The US-Malaysia trading relationship is very much up, we’re at almost US$40bil (RM136bil) in two-way trade in 2010. (There is) a large increase in US and Malaysian exports. So I’m very optimistic. As we work on this TPP trade negotiation, I think investors and traders will have added confidence to become active.
Q: The House Republicans recently approved spending cuts and there are fears that this will further slow down the US economy. Should the US cut its budget in these uncertain times?
A: There is this great debate going on in the US right now about government spending. You’re going to see this being played up. The House of Representatives is the originator of spending bills but it’s not the final decider. The US economy is overwhelmingly in the hands of the private sector. Government spending is important but it is not the determinative factor. So if you see the US getting control of the deficits, that’s not necessarily going to have a very negative impact on the economy. In some ways it will have a positive impact as people will have growing confidence in the bond market.
Q: Oil prices are skyrocketing again, further fuelled by unrest in the Middle East. US crude has hit US$100 a barrel. Are you worried about the impact of rising oil prices on the global economy, specifically the US economy?
A: It impacts the whole world when oil prices go up. I think we have a recovery that is resilient. The pace may be impacted by the price of oil. I tend to hope that if the political change that’s going on in the Middle East right now, if governments can get ahead of the reform agenda that people are demanding in several countries, that will add confidence to the market and maybe the price will come down again.
Q: On a brighter note, the US jobless rate has dropped to 9% which is the lowest in 21 months.
A: That is still sort of unsustainably high. I think you’re still going to see great efforts to bring it down. For us, that’s a very high figure.
Q: The Najib administration has launched the Economic Transformation Programme (ETP) and New Economic Model (NEM) to make the economy more competitive. From the American perspective, how does it really change how you view Malaysia as a potential investment spot?
A: I think American companies are watching this very closely. People are impressed with the plans. The NEM and ETP, there’s going to be great interest on how it is implemented. Everyone that I have spoken to in American business believes that these are very good moves in the right direction. Again, it is the speed and how far the reforms will go in implementation that traders and investors around the world will watch.
Q: The bulk of US-Malaysia trade involves the electrical and electronic sector but we are moving towards a higher income economy with focus on a knowledge or service-based economy. What role can the US play, as Malaysia’s largest trading partner, to help with this agenda?
A: (The bulk of our trade is in) oil and gas, too. The US was the largest foreign investor in Malaysia both in terms of total stock and investments in 2010. The US is the largest and most competitive market in the world and also the most innovative, creative and high-tech market. Investments by US firms in Malaysia not only create tens of thousands of jobs, it also holds the prospect for higher level knowledge-based jobs here. You’re seeing this in some of the work that is going on in Penang, for example. Also in solar panel production, SunPower is in Malacca now. I’m also going to visit the First Solar (plant) in Kulim. That sort of technology transfer and investments such as that by John Hopkins University is for the good of the growing knowledge-based economy in Malaysia. The trading relationship is also very important. Even though the US is not Malaysia’s No 1 export market, when you see the trade patterns, whether exports are going to Singapore or to China, the ultimate destination of the product tends to be the US market. So the US market still drives what Malaysia produces.
Q: We will not have an FTA but a TPP agreement which has been touted as an excellent platform to realise the creation of a huge market. How is this process coming along?
A: We are in the early stages of a very aggressive negotiating timetable with the goal of agreeing to a framework agreement at the Apec Summit in November. This is an interesting, different sort of negotiation because it is multilateral, (involving) nine countries and important economies, Malaysia being the most significant economy in Southeast Asia. But it’s self-selecting. As we go through the process, if some country says “I’m not really there for Round 1”, it’s okay, the other countries can move ahead. It’s too early to tell what will come after but there are other countries that are not involved in this nine-country negotiation which are very interested in how this turns out. I think what it will do for Malaysia and the US is a great complementarity between our markets. It will develop and grow the sense that Malaysia is open for business and will attract further foreign investments here.
Q: You don’t generally get into discussions about this issue – WikiLeaks. There are said to be about 1,000 secret diplomatic cables related to Malaysia, some of which have already been published. Can you explain the difference between these cables and official US policy?
A: First of all, let me say that WikiLeaks is not about freedom of media or government transparency. It’s about stolen property. Just like a business, a law firm or your own doctor who has confidential information that you don’t necessarily want shared with everyone. This is the kind of information that we believe should be protected. The interesting story about the whole WikiLeaks saga is that it hasn’t exposed that there is any difference between what the US stands for publicly and what we are talking about privately. What it does, when you release cables like that, is that it gets into very detailed conversations that can be awkward because something’s you’ll say in a private conversation that you don’t really put that way in a public conversation because other people may not understand it properly. But I don’t think you’re going to see anything, even if additional cables come out from anywhere in the world. I don’t think you’re going to see any great conspiracy story. We have confidential channels of conversation so that we can be very frank and honest with each other.
Q: As the chief US diplomat here, how do you respond to former ambassador John Malott’s scathing criticisms of Malaysia in his recent commentary?
A: John Malott is a private citizen and is welcomed to his views just like any private citizen is. I don’t think it’s really my role here to comment on his views just as I don’t comment on every private citizen’s views on the internal politics of Malaysia. What I’m here to do is to build the relationship between our countries’ and peoples’ and that’s what I am focused on.
Q: Finally, the billion dollar question - will President Obama step off the plane here?
A: (Smiles) I would love it. I can tell you that when I met President Obama (in Washington), he was very much aware and interested about Malaysia. The schedules of our leaders are always difficult to know, it’s challenging, so I’m not going to make any predictions. But I will say that clearly there is a great interest in Washington from President Obama, Vice-President Biden, Secretary Clinton and other members of the Cabinet in South East Asia and in the progress that the relationship with Malaysia is making.

“Katakanlah “Sesungguhnya aku hanya menyembah Tuhanku dan aku tidak mempersekutukan s e s u a t u  p u n  d e n g a n - N y a ” . K a t a k a n l a h “Sesungguhnya aku tidak kuasa mendatangkan sesuatu kemudharatan pun kepadamu dan tidak (pula) sesuatu kemanfaatan” QS. Al Jin: 20-21.

“Aku tidak berkuasa menarik meniti kesempurnaan iman kemanfaatan bagi diriku dan tidak (pula) menolak kemudharatan kecuali yang dikehendaki Allah. Dan sekiranya aku mengetahui yang ghaib, tentulah aku membuat kebajikan sebanyak – banyaknya dan aku tidak akan ditimpa kemudharatan. Aku tidak lain hanyalah pemberi peringatan dan pembawa berita gembira bagi orang – orang yang beriman” QS. Al A’raaf: 188.

“(Ingatlah), ketika kamu memohon pertolongan kepada Tuhanmu lalu diperkenankan-Nya bagimu: “Sesungguhnya Aku akan mendatangkan bala bantuan kepadamu dengan seribu malaikat yang datang berturut – turut”. Dan Allah tidak menjadikannya (mengirim bala bantuan itu), melainkan sebagai kabar gembira dan agar hatimu menjadi tenteram karenanya. Dan kemenangan itu hanyalah dari sisi Allah. Sesungguhnya Allah Maha Perkasa lagi Maha Bijaksana” QS. Anfaal: 9-10.
Demi memperkukuhkan benteng akidah dan kesempurnaan keyakinan UMAT , usaha  mesti dipelopori pemerintah dan agensi agensi kerajaan serta badan badan bukan kerajaan  dengan merincikan jalan perpaduan dan persahabatan dikalangan pelbagai keturunan bangsa supaya kekentalan akal dan budi pekerti bisa disematkan dengan keyakinan yang tidak berbelah bagi kepada ajaran Al Quraan dan Sunnah Nabi Muhammad Sallallahualaihiwassallam untuk memacukan semula kemurniaan dan peradaban Islam di Malaysia , supaya  asas yang kukuh dapat diadaptasikan didalam kerengka memajukan ekonomi menuju alaf kemajuan teknologi serta asimilasi kebangkitan perjuangan bangsa yang merdeka .
Jika usaha itu dilaksanakan dengan kekuatan semangat dalam sanubari bangsa Malaysia yang kini dilihat semakin kelam dengan kepelbagaian rencam dan keterangkuman minda mengolah entiti kemerdekaan dan wacana bangsa , kita mesti ingat  sejarah dan peradaban dalam pengembangan Islam  era globalisasi ini memerlukan tujahan yang kukuh terutama perkembangan ilmu dan kepakaran dalam kajian pelbagai bidang bolih diketengahkan melalui sistem pendidikan kebangsaan . 
Seni budaya  mesti dikembangkan dan budayawan mesti berani menelusuri dan memanfaatkan kebolehan dalam  menjejaki  ruang ketamadunan dan keilmuan untuk diterapkan sebagai wadah pengembangan dan penelitian kesesuaian medium untuk memupuk semangat kerjasama dalam membimbing semua pihak mendasari amalan yang telah ditunjuki junjungan besar Nabi Muhammad Salllallahualaihiwassallam . 
Kengganan kita menggapai seni budaya dan sejarah yang membawa wadah damainya acuan dalam memperkasakan budaya bangsa melalui bahasa  kekal mendasari inti kemajuan mengasimilasikan ruang kebijakan globalisasi , kita masih ketandusan kepakaran yang membuat kajian mendalam betapa sejarah bangsa dan budaya nya memainkan peranan dalam memacukan wacana  kehidupan dan peradaban Islam .
Justeru itu kita mesti bangun bersama dan menggembelengkan tenaga tanpa menyisihkan keupayaan individu dalam melestarikan keilmuan dan mengembangkan  prinsip prinsip kesetiaan dan persahabatan dalam kemasyarakatan , untuk itu entiti bangsa akan dipergiatkan melayani kerenah minda dengan terus kekal dengan syariat Islam .
Keyakinan mengikut pedoman AlQuraan dan Sunnah Rasulullah Sallallahualaihiwassallam  mesti dipelopori semua kepimpinan umat dengan menunjuki teladan dengan akal dan budi pekerti yang memuliakan persahabatan dan persaudaraan Islam .Menjauhi segala  tingkah laku yang mengaibkan orang lain dan terus mewarnai keindahan perilaku dengan memerhatikan tingkah laku dengan kesopanan dan kesantunan  diri .
Kesediaan untuk memimpin dengan nilai budi keikhlasan mesti terus di tanggapi tanpa mengira kedudukan dan darjat seseorang , asalkan ciri ciri kepemimpinan seiring dengan syariat Islam .Jauhilah perpecahan dan eratkan persaudaraan dengan nilai persahabatan yang telah di tunjukkan olih junjungan besar nabi Muhammad Sallallahualaihiwassalam. InsyaAllah kita akan dapat menggenggam tujahan minda dan memurnikan agama serta entiti bangsa dalam memerdekakan minda kita untuk terus berdiri disisi pejuang bangsa dan agama .

wajah dibalik tabir merdeka

بسم الله الر حمن الر حيم
andai bisa digenggam bara , terasa panasnya , mestikah  diterjah dan digugah , sedang diri  meniliki sejarah , jejak ibu dan ayah kini bukan lumrah  , bahu memikul ulah  , kemampuan terlucut sudah , mungkinkah akal dan budi bisa kembali muncul dan mewangi lagi.

andai kemelut yang ditujah dan dipapah , merdeka tidak bisa disanggah , kemampuan mendiamkan ulah , menyemai budi dan pekerti memagari wajah wajah gundah dibalik tabir merdeka . teruja bukan bisa digugah dan disanggah , pastinya wajah memiliki akal budi yang terserlah  mengelak runtuhnya entiti bangsa.

wajah nan gundah memagari ulah ,  merdeka memenjarakan wajah , membiarkan serakah , mampukah wadah menggapai mutiara tanpa merusak entiti bangsa.

menerjah merdeka yang terarah , entiti bangsa menggugah minda , kuasa sudah ditandai , memikul laba dan mentelusuri wangian pekerti . akal dan budi mewarnai persepsi memunggah mutiara hati.

keris itu kekal disanggah , gagah jejak merincikan ulah , andai sejarah bisa dirubah ..kemampuan entiti bangsa menyemi wangian bunga memerdekakan semua .

Menjejaki entiti bangsa yang kian musnah , seharusnya tujahan ditelusuri mewarnai wangian ibu pertiwi , sejarah membudayakan akal dan pekerti  mesti kekal abadi disisi entiti bangsamu sendiri . Kini sejarah Jawi diasimilasikan untuk nilaian budi dan nilai pekerti yang kian pudar agar muncul kembali kesetiaan yang  hilang. Tun Sri Lanang telah membentangkan kesenian silam , tinggal kalian  kaji pertautan sejarah peradaban dan budayawan agar muncul keyakinan mendalam betapa penting merintis  jalan memimpin tangan menggapai keakraban merungkaian semua persoalan. Siapa kah Melayu sebenarnya ? Dimanakah tujahan bangsamu ? Adakah malu mengkaji sejarah mu ? Apakah Ilmu masih gagal memimpinmu ? Apakah budaya dan seni mampu merungkai entiti  Melayu ?

Wangian itu masih utuh  dan mutiara itu masih kekal ...kemasan seni masih terus berdiri , akal dan budi masih bisa ditelusuri , kenapa kalian masih kaku berdiri ?

wangian bunga teratai.

Melayu itu orang yang bijaksana
Nakalnya bersulam jenaka
Budi bahasanya tidak terkira
Kurang ajarnya tetap santun
Jika menipu pun masih bersopan
Bila mengampu bijak beralas tangan.
Melayu itu berani jika bersalah
Kecut takut kerana benar,
Janji simpan di perut
Selalu pecah di mulut,
Biar mati adat
Jangan mati anak.
Melayu di tanah Semenanjung luas maknanya:
Jawa itu Melayu, Bugis itu Melayu
Banjar juga disebut Melayu,
Minangkabau memang Melayu,
Keturunan Acheh adalah Melayu,
Jakun dan Sakai asli Melayu,
Arab dan Pakistani, semua Melayu
Mamak dan Malbari serap ke Melayu
Malah mua´alaf bertakrif Melayu
(Setelah disunat anunya itu)
Dalam sejarahnya
Melayu itu pengembara lautan
Melorongkan jalur sejarah zaman
Begitu luas daerah sempadan
Sayangnya kini segala kehilangan
Melayu itu kaya falsafahnya
Kias kata bidal pusaka
Akar budi bersulamkan daya
Gedung akal laut bicara
Malangnya Melayu itu kuat bersorak
Terlalu ghairah pesta temasya
Sedangkan kampung telah tergadai
Sawah sejalur tinggal sejengkal
tanah sebidang mudah terjual

Meski telah memiliki telaga
Tangan masih memegang tali
Sedang orang mencapai timba.
Berbuahlah pisang tiga kali
Melayu itu masih bermimpi
Walaupun sudah mengenal universiti
Masih berdagang di rumah sendiri.
Berkelahi cara Melayu
Menikam dengan pantun
Menyanggah dengan senyum
Marahnya dengan diam
Merendah bukan menyembah
Meninggi bukan melonjak.
Watak Melayu menolak permusuhan
Setia dan sabar tiada sempadan
Tapi jika marah tak nampak telinga
Musuh dicari ke lubang cacing
Tak dapat tanduk telinga dijinjing
Maruah dan agama dihina jangan
Hebat amuknya tak kenal lawan
Berdamai cara Melayu indah sekali
Silaturrahim hati yang murni
Maaf diungkap senantiasa bersahut
Tangan diulur sentiasa bersambut
Luka pun tidak lagi berparut
Baiknya hati Melayu itu tak terbandingkan
Selaga yang ada sanggup diberikan
Sehingga tercipta sebuah kiasan:
"Dagang lalu nasi ditanakkan
Suami pulang lapar tak makan
Kera di hutan disusu-susukan
Anak di pangkuan mati kebuluran"
Bagaimanakah Melayu abad dua puluh satu
Masihkan tunduk tersipu-sipu?
Jangan takut melanggar pantang
Jika pantang menghalang kemajuan;
Jangan segan menentang larangan
Jika yakin kepada kebenaran;
Jangan malu mengucapkan keyakinan
Jika percaya kepada keadilan.
bangsa yang bijaksana
Memegang tali memegang timba
Memiliki ekonomi mencipta budaya
Menjadi tuan di negara Merdeka
(Usman Awang)

JESTERU ITU AKU MEMINJAM KATA KATAMU SAUDARAKU , MUGA  ROHMU DIBERKAHI ALLAH  DAN DITEMPATKAN DISISI PARA PENGHUNI SYURGA , wangian itu masih terus mengelusi minda ku dan selendang merah itu membaluti kalbuku , hadirnya waktu menujah jejak , walau merangkah kugagahi kudrat memijak duri disisi saf saf ibupertiwi . Keterujaan itu makin sirna memancari ufuknya , andai mereka tahu pasti kekeliruan itu menggugah laku dan pastinya tujahan minda akan terus menadah doa pada ALLAH yang maha perkasa , melindungi segalanya , jejak jejak kita tidak mungkin dapat dikesan musuh yang durja . InsyaAllah.

 أَرَءَيۡتَ ٱلَّذِى يَنۡهَىٰ (٩)
 عَبۡدًا إِذَا صَلَّىٰٓ (١٠)
 أَرَءَيۡتَ إِن كَانَ عَلَى ٱلۡهُدَىٰٓ (١١)
 أَوۡ أَمَرَ بِٱلتَّقۡوَىٰٓ (١٢)
 أَرَءَيۡتَ إِن كَذَّبَ وَتَوَلَّىٰٓ (١٣)
 أَلَمۡ يَعۡلَم بِأَنَّ ٱللَّهَ يَرَىٰ (١٤)
 كَلَّا لَٮِٕن لَّمۡ يَنتَهِ لَنَسۡفَعَۢا بِٱلنَّاصِيَةِ (١٥)
 نَاصِيَةٍ۬ كَـٰذِبَةٍ خَاطِئَةٍ۬ (١٦)
 فَلۡيَدۡعُ نَادِيَهُ ۥ (١٧)
 سَنَدۡعُ ٱلزَّبَانِيَةَ (١٨)
 كَلَّا لَا تُطِعۡهُ وَٱسۡجُدۡ وَٱقۡتَرِب ۩ (١٩)

Dengan nama Allah, Yang Maha Pemurah, lagi Maha Mengasihani
Bacalah (wahai Muhammad) dengan nama Tuhanmu yang menciptakan (sekalian makhluk), (1)
Dia menciptakan manusia dari sebuku darah beku; (2)
Bacalah dan Tuhanmu Yang Maha Pemurah; (3)
Yang mengajar manusia melalui pena dan tulisan; (4)
Dia mengajarkan manusia apa yang tidak diketahuinya. (5)
 Ingatlah! Sesungguhnya jenis manusia tetap melampaui batas (yang sepatutnya atau yang sewajibnya), (6)
Dengan sebab dia melihat dirinya sudah cukup apa yang dihajatinya. (7)
(Ingatlah) sesungguhnya kepada Tuhanmulah tempat kembali (untuk menerima balasan). (8)
Adakah engkau nampak (baiknya) orang yang melarang (dan menghalang); (9)
Seorang hamba Allah apabila dia mengerjakan sembahyang? (10)
Adakah engkau nampak (buruknya) jika dia berada di atas jalan yang betul? (11)
Atau dia menyuruh orang bertakwa (jangan melakukan syirik)? (12)
Adakah engkau nampak (terlepasnya dari azab) jika dia mendustakan (apa yang disampaikan oleh Nabi Muhammad kepadanya) serta dia berpaling ingkar? (13)
Tidakkah dia mengetahui bahawa sesungguhnya Allah melihat (segala amal perbuatannya dan membalasnya)? (14)
Jangan sekali-kali berlaku derhaka! Demi sesungguhnya jika dia tidak berhenti (dari perbuatannya yang buruk itu), nescaya Kami akan menyentap ubun-ubunnya (dan menyeretnya ke dalam Neraka); (15)
Ubun-ubun (orang) yang berdusta, yang bersalah. (16)
Kemudian biarlah dia memanggil kumpulannya (untuk menyelamatkannya); (17)
Kami pula akan memanggil malaikat Zabaniyah (untuk menyeksanya). (18)
Ingatlah! Janganlah engkau (wahai Muhammad) menurut kehendaknya dan (sebaliknya) sujudlah dan dampingkanlah dirimu kepada Allah (dengan taat dan beramal soleh)! / (19)

Isu yang tersembunyi

بسم الله الر حمن الر حيم

Isu isu yang ditandai merungkaikan  kepelbagaian  saran serta kritik dengan kepelbagaian kiasan yang menujah minda  menilai sejarah  dan budayawan. Peradaban digugah , budaya diratah , malah ada yang parah menggilai serakah mengaibkan  idola  dalam mendemokrasikan kata kata mengikut rentak dan seni yang  tersendiri . Apapun semua itu adalah ragam wacana media bebas yang semakin kental membumikan minda penjarah . Namun masih ada yang gagah menggilai aksara sejarahwan dan menilai kosa kata indah yang terluah dan membenak minda pemimpin pemimpin muda untuk mengamati gerak geri  pendemokarasi sejati . Merincikan noktah bukan jalan yang mudah jika kosa kata dan aksara tidak dipadukan dengan keletah , fitnah dan menjejaki  kebetahan nukilan memanggil  kehadiran pelayar berbayar .
Jesteru titik tolak untuk merincikan semi terus maju kedepan  , kegiuran peradaban diselangi  penjarahan  segelintir komentar yang mendepangkan tangan dijalanan . Kemungkinan memang sudah diyakinkan komentar itu akan terpapar jesteru kebarangkalian  bisa  menentang petualang yang datang untuk sama sama menghadapi hidangan .  Kesantaian ruang media dan jajaran terbentang membolihkan pencinta kedamaian  dengan kepelbagaian rencam membubuhi  ikutan atau ideology kebersamaan .  Tidak kurang juga yang berani lantang menerjah  akal budi kemanusiaan , sisi kemaluan serta jisim keagamaan  , diterjah tanpa  rasa bersalahan dengan keujudan dan fitrah kemanusiaan.
Seandainya kalian patuhi  kerukunan hidup dalam kemasyarakatan , kupasan ini hanya untuk nilai timbang  memikuli beban kebersamaan minda seorang pejuang.  Biarkan petualang itu tergamam dan bungkam  ketirisan dan keterangkuman  tujahan ,  dengarkanlah langkah langkah yang datang ini untuk kalian jejaki dan suluhi agar nanti kalian tidak akan terus  terobsessi  dengan kesenian dan keluhuran budi menghamburkan misteri yang tersembunyi.
Kugamit kalian kesini bukan untuk merincikan semi , tapi demi  kemandirian kalian mengurangkan kelelahan diri  yang pasti kalian sendiri tidak merasainya tanpa simpati akan keluhuran budi ,  hadirkan diri  kalian  untuk menyelidiki dan memahaminya sendiri . 
Jejakku masih baru disini  dan pasti  ada permulaan yang lebih seni jika  jajaran ini  diselami dengan hatibudi  untuk mengenali  jisim  kemanusiaan sejati.  
Kelazatan hidup menujah  keberuntungan kemanusiaan tidak bisa digapai jesteru  dangkalnya AKAL , kebejatan dijalanan menerjah wajah wajah kemanusiaan jesteru  hilangnya rasa MALU , keghairahan memunggah harta dunia  disebabkan kealpaan manusia  mengolah AGAMA . Ini lah rencam yang sebenarnya , kenapa kita harus mengemudikan daya usaha dalam mengharungi waktu dalam perjalanan yang kita sendiri  masih keliru . Jesteru gunakanlah akalmu ,  persiapilah langkah malumu , pelajarilah jisim agamamu.
Soalnya , adakah ILMU  mesti diburu , dipelajari  tanpa sisi sang guru ? Apakah mungkin salah kita tidak mahu berusaha kearah itu atau salahkah asuhan ayah dan ibu yang gagal membungkusi Ilmu  untuk kita mendepani waktu ?

‘Sesungguhnya Kami telah mengutusmu (wahai Muhammad) sebagai Rasul yang menjadi saksi (yang diterima keterangannya), dan sebagai pembawa berita gembira (kepada orang-orang yang beriman), serta pemberi amaran (kepada orang-orang yang ingkar). (Kami mengutusmu (wahai Muhammad) supaya engkau dan umatmu beriman kepada Allah dan RasulNya, dan supaya kamu kuatkan ugamaNya serta memuliakanNya, dan supaya kamu beribadat kepadaNya pada waktu pagi dan petang.’  : al fath 8 - 9

‘Katakanlah (wahai Muhammad): ‘Jika benar kamu mengasihi Allah maka ikutilah daku, nescaya Allah mengasihi kamu serta mengampunkan dosa-dosa kamu. Dan (ingatlah), Allah Maha Pengampun, lagi Maha Mengasihani.’  :  ali imran 31

Oleh itu, berimanlah kamu kepada Allah dan RasulNya, Nabi yang Ummi yang beriman kepada Allah dan KalimahkalimahNya (Kitab-kitabNya); dan ikutilah dia, supaya kamu beroleh hidayah  petunjuk.’ : al araf 158

Maka demi Tuhanmu (wahai Muhammad)! Mereka tidak disifatkan beriman sehingga mereka menjadikan engkau hakim dalam mana-mana perselisihan yang timbul di antara mereka, kemudian mereka pula tidak merasa di hati mereka sesuatu keberatan dari apa yang telah engkau hukumkan, dan mereka menerima keputusan itu dengan sepenuhnya.  : an nisa 65

‘Janganlah kamu jadikan seruan atau panggilan Rasulullah di antara kamu seperti seruan atau panggilan sesama kamu; sesungguhnya Allah mengetahui orang-orang di antara kamu yang menarik diri ke luar (dari majlis Nabi) secara berselindung dan bersembunyi. Oleh itu, hendaklah mereka yang mengingkari perintahnya, beringat serta berjaga-jaga jangan mereka ditimpa bala bencana, atau ditimpa azab seksa yang tidak terperi sakitnya.’ : an nur 63

‘Wahai orang-orang yang beriman! Janganlah kamu memandai-mandai (melakukan sesuatu perkara) sebelum (mendapat hukum atau kebenaran) Allah dan RasulNya; dan bertaqwalah kamu kepada Allah; sesungguhnya Allah Maha Mendengar, lagi Maha Mengetahui. Wahai orang-orang yang beriman! Janganlah kamu mengangkat suara kamu melebihi suara Nabi, dan janganlah kamu menyaringkan suara (dengan lantang) semasa bercakap dengannya sebagaimana setengah kamu menyaringkan suaranya semasa bercakap dengan setengahnya yang lain. (Larangan yang demikian) supaya amal-amal kamu tidak hapus pahalanya, sedang kamu tidak menyedarinya. Sesungguhnya orang-orang yang merendahkan suaranya semasa mereka berada di sisi Rasulullah (s.a.w), - merekalah orang-orang yang telah dibersihkan Allah hati mereka untuk bertaqwa; mereka beroleh keampunan dan pahala yang besar.’ : al hujerat  1 - 3

Umat Islam dan kaum muslimin dituntut untuk memahami ajaran yang diyakininya dengan pemahaman yang benar sesuai dengan yang telah difahami dan dicontohkan oleh As-salafus shalih (para pendahulu umat ini yang shalih) agar dia tidak terperosok ke dalam manhaj dan ajaran yang
sesat dan menyesatkan. Dalam pada itu, pemahaman ajaran dan manhaj Ahluussunnah wal jama’ah harus mendasari keyakinan setiap muslim, sebab dengan ajaran dan manhaj inilah seorang muslim insya Allah akan terjamin dari adzab neraka di akhirat kelak.
