Make Koranic studies compulsory for Muslims?

In Uncategorized on 10/04/2017 at 5:33 am

Because going by what I’m going to describe there are many Muslims who don’t know what’s in their Koran, Islam’s sacred text.

What I’m going to describe follows is not fake news or satire or parody or black comedy. It’s the truth and there could have been riots  mayhem and deaths, if it weren’t for the fact that S’porean Muslims, like their non-Muslim brothers and sisters, are peace-loving, contented sheep people; unlike Indians and Pakistans.

Imam Nalla Mohamed Abdul Jamee, was under police investigation for allegedly making remarks against Christians and Jews during his Friday sermon at a mosque, when he apologised, saying he was “filled with great remorse” and stressed that the supplication was not an extract from the Koran.

His apology showed he’s a FT where the “T” stands for “Trash”, not a true blue S’porean Muslim.

The apology didn’t work because

An imam who made controversial remarks against Christians and Jews during his Friday sermon at a mosque was on Monday (Apr 3) handed a fine of S$4,000, after pleading guilty to a charge of promoting enmity between different groups on grounds of religion or race.

The really big joke is on all those (not few) Muslims who went onto social media shouting that the remarks were taken from the Koran and that it had very deep meanings in which “pak Jews and Christians” was only a tiny part and “pak …” had to be seen in the context of the other points made. Here’s  a friend’s social media encounter with these learned Muslims. They even dissed a lady because she had “only” 10 years of stidy in a madrasah.

Now we are told by the imam himself that the quote was not from the Koran. LOL.  Black comedy the state of Koranic education here. So a bit rich for Muslims to claim that most jihadists have little knowledge of Islam. I mean juz look at this mullah’s and his Muslim defenders’ knowledge of the Koran. A case of “Misled by misled”. Or “Blind leading the blind”.

Worse the FT mullah was working here because a statutory board allowed him to: The Majlis Ugama Islam Singapura (MUIS), is also known as the Islamic Religious Council of Singapore, Its role is to look after the interests of Singapore’s Muslim community.

I had thought that FT mullahs had to pass a test before being allowed to preach and teach here. Based on this case, evidently not.

  1. if we let in dodgy PMETs with dodgy qualifications and skillsets, is it such a surprise we also let in preachers with a dodgy knowledge of theology and doctrinal matters? Same also be said about the Christians fundies, a lot of what they were preached had no doctrinal basis.

  2. Just like they ban foreign corporations or NGOs from taking part in activities that affect our politics. Maybe they should just ban foreign preachers. These foreign preachers may not know our Singapore context and thus will affect our cultural harmony and thus also our politics.

    Problem solved!
