PUTRAJAYA OCT.19: The celebration of Maulidur Rasul 1443 Hijrah at the national level is not merely to celebrate the birthday of Rasulullah SAW but it carries with it a great meaning to the whole humankind.
Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob said, in humanitarian contexts, Rasulullah is a model in bringing up humanity and brotherhood.
Ismail added, Rasulullah tried to eliminate all kinds of discrimination under the name of religion, race, skin colour and descendants.
“This shows that Islam is a religion that is built on the principle of respecting human being or “takrim al-insan based on the Allah SWT “firman” in Surah al-isra’ 70th verse that brings the meaning “And indeed We had respected the children of Adam.”
“This is also in line with the Federal Constitution among others Article 12 that gives the basic rights to all citizens to be accessed to education without discrimination regardless of religion, race, descendants or place of birth,” he said in his special deliberation in conjunction with Maulidur Rasul 1443 Hijrah on TV1 today.
The Prime Minister added, believing that Prophet Muhammad SAW is the best example for humankind, the government has and will follow the initiative and strategy that have been implemented by Rasulullah as a guideline in the national administration for the prosperity of Malaysian Family.
Ismail said, for that several policies, initiatives and incentives will be introduced and planned by the government to ensure that no Malaysian Family is left behind to enjoy the national prosperity. “No one will be left behind.”
“The theme of the Maulidur Rasul this year is ‘Manhaj Rabbani Ummah Berkualiti’ that brings us to the living norm that stresses on Manhaj Rabbani that is “blessing, peaceful, believe in God, good deeds, fair and humanity”.
“All these values are in line with Malaysian Family concept that stresses on three principles namely inclusiveness, togetherness and gratitude besides 20 other values such as humanity practice, good faith, loving and discussion,” Ismail added.
The Prime Minister also reminded that the rise and the fall of a nationality and nation depend on unity and the solidarity of its people.
He cited Rasulullah for example had made a peaceful agreement with several ethnic groups that lived near the northern and southern territories of Medina to increase the understanding and renewing relationships based on the truthful principles and avoiding chaos and power clashes.
“Just because we are of different opinions, perception and ways of approach, it does not mean that we will lose the brotherhood values and the spirit of unity that have been built for a long time.
“In conjunction with the Maulidur Rasul celebration, let us have repentances and the feeling of love for the Prophet Muhammad SAW by enlivening the spirit of Malaysian Family,” Ismail said. –Malaysia World News
