Wordless Wednesday #41

Isa & Muhammad...

Oh, cantik betul tulisan b'tajuk The Muslim Story Of Christmas. 

M'imani konsep Holy Trinity, penganut agama Kristian m'p'cayai yang Nabi Isa tu anak Tuhan, b'lainan dengan konsep Tauhid dalam ajaran Islam, yg mana Nabi Isa tu ialah s'org manusia tanpa apa2 entiti ketuhanan pun. Sebagai s'org Muslim, disamping menyanjungi & m'ikuti sunnah Rasulullah, kita juga wajib m'imani Rasul2 yang lain, t'masuklah Nabi Isa. Jadi bila ada tanggapan yang umat Islam m'asingkan Nabi Isa dalam hidup masing2, saya tak setuju. Dari kecik dah belajar sirah Nabi Isa, macam mana baginda dilahirkan tanpa ayah, macam mana hebatnya mukjizat yang Allah bagi pada baginda & kenyataan yang apabila kiamat jadi, baginda akan turun menyelamatkan umat manusia dari fitnah Dajal.

Anyways, here are some of the excerpts from the article mentioned earlier :

" "That’s why it perplexes me to hear some Christians talk about Muslims “not having Jesus.” 

We have Jesus all over our faith and belief, we just don’t believe he is the son of God or part of a triune deity. Muslims maintain that Christ was a prophet. 

It is a major difference in belief, to be sure, but it is not something over which Christians and Muslims should have any enmity or animosity.

No, Muslims may not adorn their houses with lights during this season, but it does not mean that Jesus does not light their hearts with love and reverence. Muslims may not take Christmas Day off as a religious holiday, but that does not mean that Jesus means nothing to them at all. Yes, it may be that the only businesses open on Christmas Day may be the Muslim-owned ones, but that does not mean that Jesus is not near and dear to those business owners’ hearts. "

"Miley can't stop..."

It's quite funny when Miley Cyrus said that she actually doesn't always want to be naked, because, in the contrary, that's what she's actually been doing. Yeah, if you may noticed, since this new album that she's been doing which is Bangerz, she's been into some sort of skin-baring & attention-seeking frenzy. I understand that there's a thing that artists do whenever they released a new album, they are in some sort of reinvention or whatever you may call it, you know, to be in check with the theme & what not. But, being naked? Hmm...

While she seems to try really hard to run from those sweet Disney princess images, I think it had gone pretty wild & uncontrolled. Seeing her peers, Demi Lovato & Selena Gomez who are doing very well despite their own personal problems, makes me wonder what's really been going thru her mind with all these.

I mean, just see her We Can't Stop video, her performance with Robin Thicke in the VMAs, and the worst, her Wrecking Ball video. While the songs are actually great, it raised our eyebrows to the other things that she did. Not to mention all that twerking that she's been doing. I don't know about that part of the world, but here in Southeast Asia, that dance is pretty much like an alien. 

"While it's gained her a great deal of publicity, Miley doesn't just want to be seen as the girl who takes her clothes off.“I don’t always want to be naked,” she revealed in an interview with Barbara Walters, adding it's a lose-lose situation. “No matter what I do, I’m either boring or I’m a sl*t.”

Oh really Miley, come on, I think you may know it even better than us (the public), that you have everything. You look great and you have some awesome set of pipes too, so just ignore those who're saying you're boring or whatever. Seriously, what happened to the girl who's always been so sweet but fun at the same time. I mean, I'm not ashamed to admit that I watched her movies & 'See You Again' & 'When I Look At You' are always there in my playlist. & 'The Climb' is such an inspiring song & has become everybody's favourites.

In the middle of all this,  I've been wondering where is the Man, her father. But then, turned out that Billy Ray seems to approve what Miley's been doing, but anyhow here's what her mother has to say:

"Her mother Tish admits it can be worrying to see some of her daughter's antics.

“There are times, as a mom, I’m like, ‘What are you thinking?'" she weighed in. “This is what 20-year-olds do. She’s just doing it in front of the world.” "

Oh Miley...

Huh, I don't even watch Hannah Montana, so I really am not a fan, but seeing her enslaved & so consumed by the idea of this-is-the-real-me & sex-fueled business in the Hollywood, I have to admit that I'm shocked & sad. I mean, she should used her influence especially on girls her age for good things, not for encouraging people to be naked. #justsaying
