Hukum Sebat dalam Islam

Kelmarin saya pergi menghadiri satu seminar anjuran JAKIM di pusat konvensyen putrajaya di Putrajaya..Adus, mak oi! gah sungguh pusat tu. mcam hotel 5 star.. tapi entry kali ni bukan nak cerita pasal hotel tapi nak cerita pasal seminar Hukuman sebat bagi Pesalah jenayah syariah di Malaysia.

ada beberapa isu penting yg ingin saya kongsikan bersama dengan student2 saya..

yg pertama, cara sebat dalam Islam ni lebih baik dari sebat cara hukuman sivil. Atau dgn kata lain. sebat dalam Islam lebih berperikemanusiaan dari cara hukuman sivil. dalam syariah, cara nak sebat, masa nak angkat rotan tu, tak boleh nampak ketiak kita ( hadith rasulullah) misalannya, kalau kita kepit buku kat ketiak tu dan angkat rotan untuk sebat pesalah tu, buku tu tak jatuh. rotan yg digunakan bagi pesalah jenayah syariah adalah lebih kecil diameternya dari svil. Objektif dilaksanakan hukuman adalah li ta'dib-untuk mendidik dan bukannya li ta'ziib-untuk menyiksa pesalah. Kesan dari sebatan tidak boleh berdarah pada kulit pesalah tapi bagi pesalah sivil hmm.. parut tu hanya akan hilang selepas 2 tahun. Ini pun bergantung pada jenis kulit jugak..

yg kedua, pendakwa syarie, pengawai jabatan agama dan hakim2, jgn takut untuk memastikan penjenayah yg melakukan jenayah yg membawa hukuman sebat, jgn takut untuk melaksanakan tugas anda.

yg terakhir, Negeri2 lain selain dari negeri kelantan, ikut lah jejak langkah negeri kelantan yg telah pun melaksnakan hukuman sebat ini sejak 1987 lagi. kalau yg belum beli rotan lagi, sila lah ke kedai buat survey, yg mana satu rotan yg sesuai mengikut syara' untuk digunakan.

perkara2 di atas adalah antara isu2 penting yg ingn saya kongsikan bersama.

ada ditunjukkan gambar dan demonstrasi cara sebatan yg dibuat oleh pegawai penjara.. takuuut saya tengok. utuk pesalah sivil saya tengok, tukang sebat tu, pusing 360' untuk menyebat pesalah. Pah bakpo, tak terberak n terkencing pesalah. pengsan tu biasa lah, kata pengawai penjara. Menurut Tuan Abu Bakar Abdullah Kutty, Ketua pendaftar mahkamah syariah negeri Kelantan, masa dia tengok demonstrasi di jabatan penjara ( masa tu dia jadi ketua pendakwa syarie-hok bengkeng sekali padahal tu) lepas tengok, 3 hari dia demam. tak tau kalau saya yg tengok.. pengsan tak bangun2 lagi kot!

dalam kereta saya termenung sendiri sepnjang perjalanan balik ke UIAM. Ingat pada anak2, adik2 dan student yg saya kasihi.. jgn buat maksiat..maksiat adalah jalan untuk buat jenayah.. sakitnya, pedihnya.. tapi saya terfikir pula..azab di akhirat sebenarnya adalah lebih pedih, lebih azab dari azab di dunia... masyaAllah.. pintu taubat masih terbuka..subhanallah..

Puisi..

Lama sungguh tak menulis puisi..tak dok idea sangat. Lepas tu, 2/3 hari lepas, datang kampus, tengok sunyi je..student pun tak dok, kawan pun asyik berperap dalam off sebab marking banyak lagi yg belum habis..kantin pun tutup..pah bakpo tak boring..Mula lah ingat student tu, student ni..yg suka mengacau saya di office. Ingat juga yg lama2 sangat tak tnaya khabar.. dulunya bukan main lagi rapat dgn saya, tup tup sekarang ni habuk pun tarak! bertahun2 tak tnaya khbar.. entahlah..

cerita kali ini ialah puisi..bila hati dah sedih tu, dtg la idea mencurah mencoret puisi..

Aku berjalan di tepi bukit sepi
Yang dulunya dilakari penuh dengan siswa siswi
Kamar ku yang tak putus-putis dilewati
Oleh jiwa jiwa bakal menjejaki
alim ulama tedahului
untuk Islam yang dicintai

Berat sungguh kantung hati ini
dengan rindu ynag tak terperi
pada siswa siswi
Yang ku kasihi

Kapan kamu datang lagi
Kapan kamu kan kemari
Mengubati sanubari
Yang masih terlekat di sisi

Aku masih di sini
Mengais-ngais sisa di kaki
mungkin ada kenangan manis untuk dinikmati
buat ke sekian kali..
Walau aku jauh dibuang sepi..

Non Muslim students

For the past 15 years teaching at IIUM, I have at least two non muslim students in my class every semester. This sem, I have two; one brother one sister. I enjoyed haviung non muslim students in my class. First I think this is the opportunity for me to explain to them about Islam.. the beauty of Islam. second, I would like engage some intellectual discourse with them about their understanding on Islam. Generally, they respect the Islamic values and aware the limitations as prescribed in Islam. To certain extent, they know better about Hukum syara' and remind their fellow muslim students not to commit any prohibited acts.

I remember one of non muslim student, his name is Nicholas Netto, whom i gave him " A" for Islamic Crimnal law paper. Another student, Ng boon Ka, who is extremely good in Shariah papers and he alslo memorised some quranic verses. Low Chin yi, Brother Ling..these are the few names whom I remember that they gave full commitment in my class and memorised the Quranic verses.

Every student in my class, whther Muslim or Non Muslims, is treated equally..They must memorise the quranic verses and hadith ( optional) and produce it in the form of writings. However, if they come and tell me that they have problem in memorising, that would be fine but they need to remember the exact translations from a specifc book. What is amzing, they did not want to be exempted. They wanted to memorise the quranic verses too! This is what i called, Passion and commitment. Besides, they told me that they aware about Islamic law where Quran and Sunnah are the sources of Islamic law. It very sad though to hear some muslim students refused to memorise and dont evern remember the surah's names in the holy quran..they dont have the will and commitment in their academic's life.

This encouragement to non muslim students to study the Quran, memorise the verse and explain the verse, is to show Quran is the source of hukum for everybody. This is the problem with Muslims..or Malay Muslim. They think that Quran or Islam is for solely for them.


We must exemplify to non muslim that Islam is not only amputation of hand, stoning to death etc..Islam is a way of life.

exam fever..

I am supposed to write this topic last week but could not do it. My students, they are having exam since last week. Normally during this time, I will get as early as 6.30 am, a text message from anyone of them asking me to make doa for them. At least two messages per day...but only this exam season. Once the exam is over, rarely anyone of them sending me any message. I will only get more text messages when new sem begins..

I always remind my student to keep a good relationship with your teacher and parents in the c0urse of seeking knowledge. This kind of peace relationship is very essential so that it will help you at the exam hall and eventually getting good result, insyAllah. Some student would think that getting "A" is the destiny of their life and they would do anything as long as their mission accomplished. They would cheated in the exam, they would not sleep the whole night, they lied and to the extent sacrificing their frienship for exam's sake. please, we can always try and give our best but the end result is in the hand's of Allah S W T. What Allah wants is by getting A, our iman to Him is increased..is stronger and stronger..but if we become riya' and takabbur.. there's nothing else you will be getting but Shirk..Ya Allah..Nauzubillah min zalik..

To those who have graduated, I am sure they must have missed this occassion.. Betul tak? I am sure many of you would have agreed with me that they wished that they are still studying..

Anyway, all the best! Love you guys..

ex students..

I received a visitor yesterday..Arasu,my ex student who is now doing his chambering in KL. He came to get my signature for his referral letter to be submitted to the KL bar. datang bawa karipap untuk saya..hmm, pandai pula dia, ada akhlaq. actually, evrytime i got a call or a text message or email or a surprise visit from my ex students, i am very very happy and pleased to see them or to hear any news from them.This shows that they still remember me. student teacher relationship does not end once you are no longer her studnet or once you have graduated. It is disheartening to hear from them, if i tell them, " You have not been contacting me for a long time". The answer goes this way..." I am busy madam..." This is the common answer from anybody who does not have time management.

A few days ago another ex student came to see me at my office. He brought me a bangle from sabah. he said that, this bangle I bought it from my first salary..i dont know what to say but thank you very much, faiz.

ada yg dtg bawa 2 supit buah belimbing ko saya..that was all he could buy because lalu ikut jalan yg dipenuhi hutan2.. at least dia ingat ko saya, tak dtg dgn tangan kosong.. actually he was not my student..but UIAM student. Thank you hayyi..


there was one bagi saya kain sepasang..saya buat baju kurung..tiap kali pakai ingat kat dia.. thank you, daus..

I also remember one of my ex students who made the promise that he would belanja me a glass of milo if he ever received his first salary..until now, i dont see that he is going to fulfill his words. It does not mean that I really want to drink a milo but he issue here is that you dont make promise if you think you cannot do it.

I got a thank you also from my chinese student who garduated a few years back. In that note she was telling me that she will never forget me because I gave a chocolate bar for getting highest mark in the class. I could not recall when did I give her the chcolote but i remember quite well that she was a good student. I know a small token that you got from your teacher, you will always remember..A thank you note from her is the return of what I gave to her long long time ago..Whatever you give, you will always get back..if not in this world insyAllah in the hareafter.
