Islam Hadhari, The Islam concept that still confusing...

Islam Hadhari or in english is Civilizational Islam that been introduced by Malaysian 5th Prime Minister Dato' Seri Abdullah Badawi.

According to him, this Islamic concept is consists of 10 fundamentals that is:

  • Faith and piety in Allah.
  • Just and trustworthy government
  • Freedom and independence to the people
  • Mastery of knowledge
  • Balanced and comprehensive economic development
  • Good quality of life for all
  • Protection of the rights of minority groups and women
  • Cultural and moral integrity
  • Protection of the environment
  • A strong defence policy

But after reading this 10 fundamentals, we still confuse...What is the different between existing Islam that been practice by all over the world with Islam Hadhari that been practice by Malaysia especially him...

So, if we want to learn something new..we better look at some examples from our leaders... We assume that what they say, do, eat, wear, and show is the part of Islam Hadhari..

So, after viewing a few of this picture...we can actually see that what is Islam Hadhari...It is just a fancy concept that still confusing to most of the non-muslim peoples and also to other muslim peoples.

A non-muslim people will think that the Islam Hadhari concept is more tolerance Islam if comparing to Middle East country that practicing Islam that asking a woman to wear a tudung and didn't allowed man to touch non-muhrim woman and vice versa.

They will think that the existing Islam is an old fashion Islam that can' tolerate with any situation and Islam Hadhari is the new age of the Islam that can tolerate in Islamic rules.

After year by year, it shows that Islam Hadhari is such a joke for them. Many tv commercial in Malaysia shows that Hadhari concept is more to honesty, cooperation and loyalty but never described about Islam. The concept that always stress on is more to their political strategy rather than spreading Islamic concept.

The effect to muslim peoples in Malaysia with the new Islam Hadhari concept:

This is a reality, in a few years, peoples already had a misunderstanding with Islam Hadhari. We might not know what will happen after 5 or 10 years later. What are their understanding about Islam Hadhari?..

To the peoples who concern, speak out...fight out...let the truly Islam rules in our heart...
