In school, I've always been restricted not to talk about politics or any controversional issues, while at the time, I like to discuss such topics. I could only find comfort talking and discussing such things with my father. I won't be misjudged, misinterpreted or misunderstood. The thing that we search is merely the truth and lesson learnt.
I know it isn't appropriate (I don't know why) to speak about politics, to criticise or to analyse it. They say that we are still school students, and so we shouldn't. But, I think, for this time, it's not issue of whether or not we should talk about it, but this is an issue of ummah, an important issue to be resolved.
I'm not political analyser, nor I'm a politician (of course not, I'm only a high school student). I'm not so involve in politics, merely knowing some critical political issues. So, my assumption and analysis might be true and some might be wrong. But let's just be true to our religion. We want the best to move our ummah forward.
I'm not going to go deep into my political stance, knowing it will be a very sensitive issue.
Just recently, reading the newspaper, it was said that 120 ex-PAS in Kelantan have jumped to UMNO saying that they have given PAS 22 years of administration, and could not somehow see good changes happen to the state and should give back the chances to UMNO.
This issue triggers me to write about this.
We could see how UMNO has many professionals and how PAS is lack in it. And we could see how PAS has many islamic thinkers and how UMNO lack in it. And to develop Islam, we need both criterion, professionals and Islamic thinking. Combination of these two elements would be a great advantage to ummah development. But, is the combination of the two party imminent? Nothing could I say since both parties have very contradicting ways that perhaps make the two parties cannot go along.
Muslim students, this is something for us to think of. We are in academic flows, we sit for SPM and somehow are going to universities or colleges and then to have our own careers and jobs. The thing is, muslim youths have never been serious in their field of works. When we sit for SPM, how many of us got straight A+ compared to those non-muslims? In terms of tertiary education, how many muslims are capable of getting the scholarship and excel in their studies?
This is the thing we lack of. We lack of Islamic professionals. There are professionals, but they don't think how to develop ummah. We have people that think a lot about da'wa, but unable to have it absorbed into the roots of our country's management and authority since they have no place in the government.
This issue should has come to our realisation. And it is time to realise it! It is time to realise that we need to get back on the right track.
When muslim people work, they should work hard and truly into it. Are we really into it?
