Sometimes, I think it’s better to write in Malay Language for entries concerning about Islam and vital issues. Doesn’t mean that to avoid non-Malay to read the post but I afraid if there is some misuse of English terms those may lead to other means. Hmm.. Obviously speculations will be triggered if that happened.
That’s us. People always make conclusion on first impression..
Rasulullah SAW bersabda: “Satu hari nanti, kamu akan dikerumuni musuh-musuh kamu, ibarat makanan dikerumuni semut.”
Sahabat-sahabat bertanya: “Adakah bilangan kami sedikit ketika itu ya Rasulullah?”
Rasulullah SAW menjawab: “Tidak, malah bilangan kamu sangat ramai. Tetapi ibarat buih di lautan”
-Riwayat Abu Daud.
First, please watch this movie ladies and gentlemen..
So, what you guys feel about this video?
How bad is it this Gubra film? It played with our holy religion, Islam!!
Feel angry? Why? I think I know..
1. Why this film starts with ‘Bismillah’ but have lots of sexual scenes?
2. Why the bilal touch the dog and go to azan?
3. Gubra is an inter faith movie presenting pluralism?
4. Is Article 11 Movement behind this?
5. Yasmin Ahmad supported liberalism and pluralism?
What are you guys thinking right now?
Are we betrayed by this Malay film, Gubra? An award winning film. Praised by people. Known as a racial tolerant film. The best ever produced by Malay production..
What was happened? Why this film was not banned before being watched?
Angry my Muslim brothers?
Relax.. Let us look into another view..
As I told earlier we tend to criticized on what people did without asking. We underestimate people without being close and know him/her well? Who are we to do that?
Now.. If I say..
1. Why can’t a film starts with ‘Bismillah’? Even in ceremonies we start with ‘Bismillah’.. And the ideas of sexual scenes are the reflect of our community today. Shame to show the reality to public?
2. This case is quiet complicated. Touching dog is not a sin. Just we have to ‘sortu’ after doing that.
Even if the dog is 100% dry, it is unnecessary to do that. In condition there is no saliva come out from mouth. Impossible for the dog to lick its own head as the bilal only touch its head. Plus according to science, dog precipitates at the paws.
But the question, was the dog dry on early morning? No dewdrop at the time?
3. No evidence.
4. No evidence also.
5. Allahyarham Yasmin Ahmad was well known as a charismatic producer who creates lot of movies and tv clips which touches our hearts. Most of the messages are pure and clear. They sometimes perfectly reflect our society. Credit to her. Although he was confused during his lifetime, what we appreciate from him is his messages. Yet, no evidence he is working with pluralism and liberalism movement as I concern.
My friends.. Feel confused? Should I support this film? Or this video clips?
Personally, I think this movie is a great one. It came at a right moment on a right time but quiet controversial way.
I agree, Allahyarham Yasmin Ahmad had his own reason to produce this present to our society in Malaysia especially the Muslim society. How?
See.. at first impression when we saw the film and the above video clip, we feel that something wrong with this movie. Islam has been clowned by these people, our own people! How dare all of you.
I’m pretty sure Yasmin Ahmad expected those comments from our society. People will question on his intention and though in producing this movie. I thought he’s right. Many our people seem angry and feel ashamed on this Malay made movie without further thinking, “There must be reasons”.
Wake up everyone.. Our society nowadays aren’t good as we were before. We are controlled by media and hedonism. Quiet number of our young people are drowned by world.
Bear that! Accept the fact! Why should us run away from reality and become rhetoric despite it was clear to the whole world? There is no point.
Take lessons from what people did. Better than those who only critic without doing nothing..
I understand.. What makes people misunderstood that there is no cooperation between art and intellectual people. That is obvious. I mean it is true that this movie is quiet over limit to have sexual scenes and religious scenes in it for children and young people.
Hence, we need guidance from intellectual people on explaining this art piece. Especially, the ulama’ and religious individuals in order to make things clear.
Yet, the difference in opinion is well accepted. Due to the fact that it had made people more eager to understand the true value and meaning of multiracial. Also the Islamic Laws. Credit to the movie.
Our Muslim society suddenly realized on the dog issue..
Try to find out the pluralism and liberalism issues..
Concern about the Article 11 Movement..
I should say well done to Allahyarham Yasmin Ahmad and his film, Gubra.
I posted this entry to get responses from other people.
What your comments my friends?
