PRESIDENTIAL KEYNOTE ON THE BIRTHDAY OF PROPHET MUHAMMAD SALLALLāHU ‘ALAYHI WA SALLAM 1441H / 2019M

MUSLIM YOUTH MOVEMENT MALAYSIA (ABIM) 

SET THE LEADERSHIP OF PROPHET MUHAMMAD AS EXAMPLE IN MATERIALIZING SDG 2030 

As we know, the birth of Prophet Muhammad ṣallAllāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam was a mercy from Allah Subhanahu wa-ta’ala not only to mankind, but also the entire universe. The mercy encompasses all aspects of our lives as Allah’s creatures.

Improving quality of lives, rebuilding human characters and upholding equal dignities of human beings are among the main philosophies derived from the Quranic verse Al-Anbiya: 107 “And We have not sent you, [O Muhammad], except as a mercy to the worlds.”

The persistence, sacrifice and discipline demonstrated by Prophet Muhammad ṣallAllāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam should be appreciated as a foundation to develop a civilized society and an advanced nation.

Hence, it is a must for us to express our love to the beloved messenger of Allah not only during the celebration of His birthday, but at all times. As a committed Ummah, it is our obligation to follow the sunnah (path) of Rasulullah ṣallAllāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam in all aspects of our lives. 

The expression of love includes our commitment in following his examples as the ultimate role model of all time.

If we study the mechanisms used by Prophet Muhammad ṣallAllāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam to transform the backward Arab society of Makkah into a glorious civilization notably mentioned by Allah in the Quran as Khayra Ummah (the best nation), they were similar to the goals stipulated by United Nations named as Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) 2030. 

In one hadith narrated by Tirmidzi, the first speech of Prophet Muhammad ṣallAllāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam when he arrived in Madinah was:

"O people Spread (the greeting of) Salam, feed others, uphold the ties of kinship, and pray during the night when people are sleeping, and you will enter Paradise in peace."

The words of the Prophet clearly outlined four missions in the Madinah governance which were citizens’ security and peace (salam), economic welfare to eradicate poverty, fostering relationships among the people and spiritual development in the society.

These principles encompassed the main framework of SDG that is zero poverty, zero hunger, the equal rights of citizens as a pre-condition to fostering unity, peaceful lives, and spiritual development to create characters with integrity and as a result bring about a strong responsible institution. 

Besides, the emphasis on education to bring people out of the darkness of jahiliyyah resulting in equal rights and protection of women in the society, citizens who respect all creatures including the environment and as a result building the quality of lives of the people is part of the United Nantions SDG 2030 as an indicator towards sustainable development.

Thus, through the success of Prophet Muhammad to build an ideal civil society based on the sustainable pillars, as an Islamic movement, ABIM is committed to join hands with the international community in materializing the Sustainable Development Goals heading towards a meaningful mission of ABIM that is to build and lead the Khayra Ummah Civilization. 

Salam Maulidur Rasul 1441H to all Muslims in Malaysia and the whole world. May our love towards Prophet Muhammad remain strong and bloom with the awareness to carry on his struggle.

Praise be upon Prophet Muhammad ṣallAllāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam. Sollu ‘alan Nabi!

Muhammad Faisal Abdul Aziz,
President,
Muslim Youth Movement Malaysia (ABIM).

Malaysian Solidarity With The Palestinian People

By:- Muhammad Faisal Abdul Aziz, President Muslim Youth Movement of Malaysia (ABIM)

Utmost gratitude extended to the United Nations for receiving the courtesy call from Abim Pusat & Malaysian CSOs on this very special day of International Solidarity Day for the Palestinian People. The main objective of the visit is to present a Memorandum on behalf of the Malaysian people to the UN to support the initiative by the UN to keep peace and stability in Palestine. At the same time, we want to refresh our stance to be consistent in supporting the Palestinian cause in liberating their homeland. Besides, given the never-ending situation of violence in Palestine, we would like to call upon the UN on behalf of all international communities to uphold the cause of Palestinian people by

1) Enforcing UNSC Resolution 2334 adopted on 23rd December 2016

2) The OTP of ICC requesting authorization from the ICC pre trial chamber for its office to initiate an investigation into the alleged crimes of Israel againts Palestine in accordance with Article 15 (1) Rome Statute.

3) Taking more assertive actions by executing the Resolutions reached un the UNGA though the status of Resolutions are non binding and recommendatory in nature.

4) Defending the rights of the aggrieved Palestinians especially their rights to worship freely in Al-Aqsa mosque without any interference by the Israeli regime, and to preserve the important sites of Al-Aqsa without any irresponsible destruction by the Zionists.

5) Empowering humanitarian missions by facilitating humanitarian agencies under United Nations and humanitarian NGOs such as Global Peace Mission Malaysia (GPM) to hand aids to fulfill the basic needs of the Palestinians.

Last but not least Abim hope to keep engaging with the UN in sharing the same spirit to maintain justice, freedom and peace in this world.

In conjuntion with the visit ABIM presents an olive tree to the UN office in Malaysia as a symbol of trust to the UN to always preserve freedom, justice and fundamental liberties in #Palestine.

The Dalai Lama Will Be Speaking On Malaysia’s Muslim Youth Movement Online Forum To Promote Religious Harmony

 

The forum will discuss on “Compassion & Mercy As The Common Values Between Islam & Buddhism”

Kirat Kaur
BY KIRAT KAUR
In an increasingly rare display of respect and tolerance in Malaysia, an online Islam-Buddhist forum featuring the Dalai Lama – the Tibetan Buddhist spiritual leader – will be held this month to build inter-religious harmony.
His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama, Tenzin Gyatso, and International Institute of Islamic Thought and Civilisation (ISTAC)’s Professor Emeritus Datuk Dr Osman Bakar will be discussing the topic “Compassion & Mercy As The Common Values Between Islam & Buddhism” online on 28 September.
In an interview with Malaysiakini, organiser Muslim Youth Movement of Malaysia (ABIM) explained that they believed different religious views should be discussed on a suitable platform that focuses on wisdom and truth.
Hence the idea to organise this interfaith dialogue.
Nowadays, we are often surrounded by elements of Islamophobia, triggered by irresponsible parties. We should engage in harmonious dialogue with various communities as a mechanism to explain Islam and the contribution of this religion towards peaceful coexistence.
 
ABIM believes that we need to look at a bigger perspective, which is how religious diversity can be an asset to harmony and unity, instead of a factor for conflict.
 
Muhammad Faisal Abdul Aziz, President of Muslim Youth Movement of Malaysia (ABIM) via Malaysiakini.
 
The event is also organised by the Tibetan Buddhist Culture Centre, Malaysia (TBCC), whose president Casey Liu will be moderating alongside ABIM’s president Muhammad Faisal Abdul Aziz. Sources: The Rakyat Post.
 
Campaign To Raise Funds For Braille History Books

 

Imran Ariff 

KUALA LUMPUR: The Malaysian Foundation for the Blind (MFB) and the Muslim Youth Movement Malaysia (Abim) today launched a fundraising campaign to translate, print and distribute history books in braille for visually handicapped students.
Abim vice-president Zairudin Hashim said the initial target of the campaign is RM100,000, which will be used to produce and distribute the text books.
“Most of the books cost around RM90. They are quite expensive and usually only last one or two months as they can easily get damaged and need replacement,” he said.
If more than RM100,000 is raised, he said, Abim and MFB can use the additional funds to conduct a roadshow advocating for the rights of the blind community.

“We tend to see disabled people as people we need to give money to, but actually, there are many who contribute to our society, so we need to understand they have the potential to give to the country.
“As fellow Malaysians, we need to make sure we don’t forget them.”
MFB founder Silatul Rahim Dahman said this initiative was important for blind students.
“If their needs are not met, they are going to face a lot of difficulties in their studies,” he said.
He hoped the fund will not just produce braille books but also raise awareness on the needs and rights of blind.
“People will not understand our actual problems, feelings and difficulties unless they are disabled, but nobody wants to be disabled. That is the dilemma we often face with the public.”

Silatul also wants to produce and distribute “books of the general order”, so that blind people can learn about their rights.
The books will initially be produced in Malay, but they hope to produce texts in other languages in the future. Sources: Free Malaysia Today.

ABIM Gerakkan Tabung Buku Sejarah Braille Untuk OKU Penglihatan.

3 hb September 2020 (Khamis): Alhamdulillah, telah diadakan sesi sidang media khas anjuran ABIM dan Yayasan Orang Buta Malaysia (YOBM) bertempat di Sekretariat ABIM Pusat.

abim. yayasan orang buta malaysia. yobm. mfb. braille 7

Pelajar dari golongan OKU penglihatan perlukan bantuan anda. Buku braille ini bukan saja mahal tapi juga susah nak dapat. Kekurangan akses kepada buku-buku ini menyukarkan mereka untuk menimba ilmu.

Setiapkali ada yang sumbang buku braille di sekolah, berebut-rebut pelajar nak baca. Malangnya, tulisan timbul ini cepat ‘haus’ bila digunakan berulangkali, makin lama, makin ‘tenggelam’. Ada yang rosak selepas sebulan-dua digunakan, sebab tak semua pelajar sekolah mahir membaca. Jadi, kalau dah rosak, kena beli buku baru.

Buku audio pula tidak terlalu membantu dalam proses belajar membaca.

Apa jadi bila orang buta tak cukup buku? Akan ada anak-anak OKU yang tak boleh membaca braille dan menjadi buta huruf.  Kita sembang nak jadi negara maju, bangga dah merdeka 63 tahun, malangnya anak-anak kita ini nak membaca pun bermasalah.

Apa jadi bila ramai OKU penglihatan tak pandai membaca? Kalau betul kita ikhlas nak bangunkan negara, kita kena peduli dengan golongan OKU, sebab mereka pun ada hak untuk pendidikan.

 

Pembangunan haruslah saksama, jangan lupa golongan ini dan biarkan mereka tercicir.

‘Pendidikan untuk semua’ bermaksud, orang buta juga berhak untuk belajar, baca buku dan dapat ilmu!

Tuan-Tuan & Puan-Puan Budiman, ABIM bersama Yayasan Orang Buta Malaysia (http://www.mfb.org.my/) sedang berusaha mengumpulkan RM100,000 untuk membantu menyediakan buku-buku sejarah dalam bentuk braille untuk anak-anak OKU kita.

Tuan/Puan budiman boleh bayangkan, harga 1 buku teks sejarah biasa mungkin agak mampu milik bagi kita, tapi tidak bagi mereka yang hilang upaya penglihatan. Kos bagi setiap buku mencecah sehingga RM90 termasuk ‘proofread’ dan cetakan.

Tuan/Puan budiman, Marilah bersama kami dalam projek. 
Kempen boleh sahaja seorang sebuah buku dengan harga RM90 sahaja.

Sumbangan seikhlas hati Tuan/Puan budiman boleh terus dimasukkan ke dalam akaun BANK ISLAM ABIM:

14023010032527.

* Rujukan sumbangan: DANA PRIHATIN OKU (012-6211545)
