Two significant issues have I put forth here.
One, is the Islamic Fashion Festival held lately in Kuala Lumpur. At first glance, it sounded like somebody has done a good job at selling Islamic fashion to the world, but in fact it is totally the opposite.
What do you get of this?
Does this fashion seem Islamic to you? Honestly, what does Islam say about clothes?
Refer to these verses to get a clearer view of what Islam has underlined for us about hijab:
- Surah Al-A'raf ayat 26 & 31-32
- Surah al-Ahzab ayat 59
- Surah An-Nur ayat 31
- Surah An-Nur ayat 60
Hopefully our future leaders are better than this.
Another issue is when I see the headline of today's news; "Bukti Usaha Kerajaan", and it goes on saying what a good job the government has done to improvise our lives.
I do like the fact that they are doing their job as leaders, but what gets to my nerves is the title, which sounds like they want to prove to us that they are doing their work.
The question is, why prove when it is already your job? Has someone said you're not doing anything for the country and they want the proof?
It sounded so unprofessional if this is how they answer this question.
My opinion; we need wiser and more patient leaders in the future, not to mention pious too. Therefore, teachers. Do your best in nurturing these future leaders. And parents, you need to nurture your children to be our 'qualified' authority inheritors.
