Maulidur Rasul

Selawat bagi Rasulullah.

Growing up in Singapore, we'd start the maulidur Rasul celebration with a small morning procession around the Madrasah in Batu 8, West Coast Road. There would be nasyids, the recital of the Quran and prayers. In the evening, we'd eat alfresco, four or five of us sharing a dulang of nasi minyak and condiments under the stars and the moon. The boys, most in their madrasah uniform of white baju Melayu and red samping, would eat from the same dulang as the male adults.

That was when Singapore still had kampungs.

It can still be organised in Singapore. Religious freedom is still allowed there kan?

If the boys of current times do not want to do it, cannot blame the system lah.

what a pity. suddenly after more than 60 years, i've been told that the whole maulud nabi concept is bid'ah. muhammad s.a.w never celebrated his birthday in any way and neither did the sahabahs.

just imagine. history could have been changed if there were no processions, may 13th, etc etc. wallahualam.

Y.Bhg. Dato' Rocky, the above is a Google Transliteration of today's BERNAMA story. Kindly note the translation in regards to Melaka CM and the deceased father's statement. Perhaps, next time around when we are bored we can use the Google's Transliteration services for a good measure of humour!

It still remain quieter. Not used to be our time in early days due to government policy to scatter the Malays population to make them weak. Singapore Malays is now become 3rd class society due to policy to curtails Malays advancement. Meritrocracy is just an excuse

Celebration for maulidur rasul is part of Malay customs and tradition. Some state like Perlis doesnt even celebrate that day in such a big way like having parade and so forth. Born and grown up in Perlis I am glad as the state ruler has always safeguard the faith of his Malay subjects by promoting to the principle of Ahlus Sunnah Wal Jamaah. So dear fella Malays out there, do come to Perlis and you gonna see some shocks of your life in the way your brothers and sisters observe their religious obligation. Start the day in Perlis with congregational morning prayer in the state mosque and by then you may thinking that you could be in other part of Muslim world.

Kat Singapura bukan sahja Kampung Melayu walhal kampung China dan India pun dah tidak ada Dato', diganti dengan flat HDB sahja.

Those good old days where we eat nasi diatas dulang beramai-ramai pun susah nak jumpa lagi.Sigh.

Kita berselawat sahjalah banyak-banyak kepada Rasul kita. Jangan tunggu maulidul rasul sahja; tetapi tiap-tiap hari lepas sembahyang. Sekadar peringatan sesama muslimin dan muslimat.

dear Pak Telor Mata Kerbau,

penonton biadap terhadap lagu NEGARA KU bukan lagu UMNO. Tidakkah ini bererti mereka yg biadap itu juga menunjukkan kebiadapannya kepada seluruh negara dan rakyat Malaysia.

mengapa pulak anda suruh UMNO protes kat indon embassay?

anda tak rasa dihina ke?

saya yg tak UMNO ni rasa sgt marah dan tidak boleh terima penghinaan ini. ini negara saya bukan negara UMNO, cuma kebetulan UMNO/BN jadi pemerintah.

apa punya otak lah awak ni??

JB gal,

Yes, nasi talam. Lupa namanya. Interestingly, the Melayu Singapura back then shared much customs and routines as Johorean Malays. The Madrasah I mentioned was also sponsored by the Johor govt and Ustaz Ramly, our head master, was a Johorean.

Thanks

salam datuk,

saya masih ingat ada seorang tok guru agama bercerita pada saya tentang sambutan maulud nabi ni.ye betul ia satu bidah tetapi ia bidah yang baik.ini fakta.kedua saya ingin menggunakan analogi berkenaan air.air pada asal kejadiannya tidak ada harga dan percuma.sesiapa sahaja boleh minum air termasuk binatang, tumbuhan. Allah tak kenakan pun bayaran atau kita bayar pakai sistem GSt atau terpaksa bayar subsidi. Walaubagaimanapun, apabila air itu dibotolkan, ada harganya katakan rm 20 sen.kemudian, air tersebut diberi jenama, diiklankan harganya terus meningkat, apatahlagi kalu air tu diperkayakan dengan perisa yang pelbagai untuk apa sahaja tujuan.lihat dari air yang tiada nilai, kemudian bernilai padahal tujuan asalnya adalah untuk menghilangkan dahaga sahaja.begitu juga maulud nabi ni.pada mulanya kita berkumpul, kemudian kita pakain cantik dan segak2, kemudian kita berselawat, ditambah lagi dengan sepanduk2 yg memuji nabi dan sepanduk yang memberi peringatan yang baik baik.ini semua menyeru kebaikan.kemudian kita dengar ceramah di masjid.dah dapat ilmu, lepas tu kita makan ramai2 ukhwah akan terbentuk, akhirnya kita solat zohor berjemaah...haaaa kan dah dapat pahala berjemaah. jadi....apa salahnya kita buat maulud nabi??

"That was when Singapore still had kampungs."

Yea, that's called progress. Something people of your ilk will gladly sacrifice in return for political control.

Singapore GDP per capita : USD52,000
Malaysian GDP per capita : USD15,300

So would you prefer living in a kampung (not that you even would if given the chance) or an average income of USD52,000 per year?
