HAVE A MEANINGFUL AIDILFITRI
Allow me to share a #RasuahBusters message for this year’s Hari Raya Aidilfitri.
Rasuah is forbidden in the Quran on the basis that Rasuah distorts the course of justice. In Islam, being just is nearest to being righteous, or having Taqwa.
Taqwa is an Islamic term for being conscious of God and Truth. Without Taqwa, we do not have Allah in our hearts and minds.
As such, Rasuah takes us away from Sirat-al-Mustaqim.
Sirat-al-Mustaqim refers to the path of Islam which leads to the path of success here on earth and the hereafter. It is the straight path, the path of those favoured by God. Those who give and take Rasuah are those who have gone astray.
We Muslims du’a daily to God “Ihdinā ṣ-ṣirāṭa al-mustaqīm” - Guide us along the Straight Path. The giving and taking of Rasuah directly derail us from following Sirat-al-Mustaqim and make our du’a insincere, frivolous and hypocritical.
This Aidilfitri, let us strive to constantly take the straight path and never fall to Rasuah. With Taqwa anchored deeply in our hearts, we will succeed.
Have a Meaningful Aidilfitri, MAAF ZAHIR & BATIN from all of us at zubedy.
