Malay,Chinese, Indian Prophets?

Abdul Kahar the self-proclaimed Malay Prophet gets 10 years jail + six strokes of the rotan and fined RM16.5K for conducting “deviationist teachings, blasphemy and spreading false beliefs”. Kinda harsh sentence for someone I thought who was just a little delusional. A little logical banter or better still designer drugs would have changed his mind. Anyway, I guess our courts house a bunch of serious lots – who saw a man with tiny bit of followers as a “threat to the security of the religion, society and nation”.

Okay, putting this era aside, who was the Malay Prophet? Was there a Malay Prophet? Yes, according to the Quran. In fact according to the Quran there were Chinese Prophets, Indian Prophets, Caucasian Prophets, Red Indian Prophets, Afrikan Prophets, and many more all across the world, all through time.

The Quran says,

To every people (was sent) an apostle: when their apostle comes (before them), the matter will be judged between them with justice, and they will not be wronged” (Quran 10:47)

And,

“ Verily We have sent thee in truth, as a bearer of glad tidings, and as a warner: and there never was a people, without a warner having lived among them (in the past)”.(Quran 35:24)

Ever since I discovered the above Quranic ayats, I have been on the lookout for all those apostles. Was Thiruvalluvar the Tamilian sage who wrote the Thirukkural an apostle? How about the Buddha? Lao Tze? Mani of Persia?

Who were the other apostles not mentioned in the Quran since the Quran only named apostles from the Semitic branch. The Quran says,

“And as [We inspired other] apostles whom We have mentioned to thee ere this, [179] as well as apostles whom We have not mentioned to thee; and as God spoke His word unto Moses”. (Quran 4:164)

And,

“And, indeed, We sent forth apostles before thy time; some of them We have mentioned to thee, and some of them We have not mentioned to thee …” (Quran 40:78)

In fact according to the Quran, anyone who does not accept even one of the messengers named or unnamed, ceased being a believer.

The Quran says,

“Those who deny Allah and His apostles, and (those who) wish to separate Allah from His apostles, saying: "We believe in some but reject others": And (those who) wish to take a course midway They are in truth (equally) unbelievers; and we have prepared for unbelievers a humiliating punishment, To those who believe in Allah and His apostles and make no distinction between any of the apostles, we shall soon give their (due) rewards: for Allah is Oft- forgiving, Most Merciful - (Quran 4 : 150-153)

So who were the Chinese apostles? Indians? Caucasians?Afrikans …..? As for the Malay Prophet, I think he or she could have been the person who brought us the Peribahasa Melayu :)

I like your post but wish it had been written in a different light. As it is, it sounded, what my son would call..cheezy.

Whomever the Malay apostle was, he was here before the Prophet Muhammad's, sallallahualaihiwassalam, time.

The Prophet Muhammad, sallallahualaihiwassalam was the Seal of the Prophets and there is none after him.

Dear Bros. Anas,

Joel 2:28-29 “And after that it must occur that I shall pour out my spirit on every sort of flesh, and YOUR sons and YOUR daughters will certainly prophesy. As for YOUR old men, dreams they will dream. As for YOUR young men, visions they will see. And even on the menservants and on the maidservants in those days I shall pour out my spirit.

This scripture will only be understandable by reading through the “Mankind's search for God” [16 Chapter] available at my blog. Receive it free and it is being given free.

Interesting post but I'm not so concern about the sentence he received but wonder how he managed to convince muslim people in believing his teaching when he self proclaim to be "Rasul Melayu"...Can you image what will be the next Islam generation esspecially to our loves ones? Are our faith is lacking???

To : Ocean Girl..you're absolutely right there's no other prophets after The Prophet Muhammad Sallahualaihiwassalam.

Anas, I remember when I was in secondary school, my Ustaz once said "belajaq tafsiran Quran ni, kena berguru, supaya kamu tak buat tafsiran sendiri...".

yup...i agree with this person..tafsir quran kalau silap, boleh membawa syirik, kufur..sejauh mana tepat tafsiar tuan kepada ayat (Quran 10:47) “To every people (was sent) an apostle: when their apostle comes (before them), the matter will be judged between them with justice, and they will not be wronged”...apa maksud "every people" ???..

i stop reading quran translation once i was at 19, because too many people saying that u need this and that to use and understand the quran..so difficult that i have to learn arabic and understand the quran language... does god really send a complicated stuff? or too many people are just being conservative and does not able to think on his own...
