It is About Sharing

Knowledge is for sharing. Do not keep your knowledge to yourself alone. Let it grows. The more you share, the more you learn and in the end you become a better person.

Labelling

As everbody is fully aware, now is the election time. The fever has started. The war has started. This is the time when we can hear one party praising himself for all his good deeds and condemning other party and vice versa. It is more like "masuk bakul angkat sendiri" Let me translate that, "put yourself in a basket and you lift the basket yourself".

While, I personally think that it is not a good thing to do i.e. "masuk bakul angkat sendiri", but during election time, it is acceptable. Every general rule, there is an exception.

During election, people are free to talk even about the bad things of other people but to label other party, human being, as an animal, I think that is just too much. I belive there are more proper way to do your campaigning. What if the people who are labelled as animal suddenly joined the party of the "labellor" (Is there such a word?). Are they then human being or animal? Wow! it sounds like Charles Darwin's evolution theory.

Allah said in the holy Qur'an: -

"Ud 'u ila sabili rabbika bil hikmati wal mau 'izatil hasanah" which means "serulah ke jalan tuhan mu (Allah) dengan hikmah (bijaksana) dan nasihat yang baik"

To borrow the infamous phrase of RTM newscaster of Dunia Hari ini (I forgot his name), "renung-renungkanlah, fikir-fikirkanlah".

Wallahualam...
