Please tell me what you think.

I think there is too much emphasis on cara-cara untuk melindungi diri daripada gangguan makhluk halus, jins and all these evil beings, in the media today. Night after night there's always a section on the radio about it. If not on the radio, it's the topic of a ceramah at a masjid near you. I mean, I am sure there are more beneficial things that we can talk about.

Gangguan makhluk halus (dan gangguan-gangguan yang sewaktu dengannya) can only mean one thing; and that is: HUBUNGAN YANG SANGAT RENGGANG DENGAN ALLAH SUBHANAHU WA TA'ALA.

I'm just saying, why can't we focus on telling people on ways of how to get closer to Allah rather than focusing on telling people on ways of protecting themselves from these evil beings? Do you reckon ceramah-ceramah pasal jin-jin & makhluk halus ani menambahkan iman? Rasa-rasanya orang akan lebih takut pada jin-jin/makhluk halus tepulang. Bila manusia takut kepada jin, itu sudah menyelewengkan aqidah, inda kah? Hmm... please please perbetulkan diri ani jika saya salah.

What are your thoughts?

Wassalam. Semoga semua sentiasa dalam perlindungan Allah, sesungguhnya Allah lah sebaik-baik pelindung.

Salam Jirin, i agree with you said. ada orang yang terlalu ingaukan halal haram, fiqih, baca quran dengan berlagu, cara2 sembahyang dengan betul (i.e.physically - there seems to be less emphasis on how to khusyuk) etc. sampai asas mengikut cara kehidupan islam atu inda dipraktikkan.

there's nothing wrong with knowing all that pulang, kalau tahu lagi baik, sedikit sebanyak ada ilmu agama atu. tapi inda jua bagus kalau luan cerewet kan the technicalities of islam sampai kadang2 agama ani jadi susah tah pulang kan mengikuti. lupa pada asas islam yang sebenar. pedah2 saja tahu semua atu, tapi kalau hati inda bersih, cemana kan maju sebagai seorang muslim, let alone manusia.

memang fitrah manusia orang ingin tahu jua bah kan. senang kan curious pasal benda2 mistik misteri ani. suka kan menakutkan2 diri kadang2nya heheh.

Salam. I didn't know that there are ceramahs about this supernatural stuff until I read your post. I totally agree with your point of view.

And as a language student I would like to add that it is extremely annoying that us Bruneians suka bercerita antu when we meet. I feel that it's unnecessary to dwell so much on those things when there are nicer things to talk about. Ani inda lain cerita antu, kana buati orglah and so on. I even overheard a conversation that this popular restaurant in Brunei bossnya memelihara Jinn, that's why makanannya nyaman.

Daripada bercerita berjam-jam pasal kana "supernatural" stuff ani, baik tah bercerita pasal current affairs. Inda jua "cetek" usulnya di mata org lain.

Salam Huda, jazakillahu khair for the sharing. True, kitani sering terlalai, walaupun benda tu secara dasarnya benda baik, i.e. tentang halal haram, isu fiqh, etc etc tetapi like you said there are so many things yang lebih disarankan untuk kitani dalami. Ilmu islam tu luas, tapi ada yang 'priority' antara semua ilmu atu.

Antara belajar membaca Al-Qurán secara berlagu, dengan memahami ayat-ayat Allah, yang mana satu lagi penting?

Syaitan ni sangat licik. Jika kita mampu menjauhkan diri kitani daripada kebatilan/maksiat dan alhamdulillah sudah terbiasa tidak melakukan maksiat, do you reckon ia akan masih menghasut kitani untuk membuat sesuatu maksiat atu? They're smarter than that. Durang akan lalaikan kitani dengan perkara yang lain.

Kalau dulunya seseorang atu inda solat, dan sekarangnya alhamdulillah sudah biasa solat, syaitan inda akan menghasutnya untuk meninggalkan solat. Tapi syaitan akan attack dari angle yang lain. Ia mungkin akan mewas-waskan solat seseorang atu instead. Because kalau ia cuba mengasut seseorang atu inda solat, ia pasti akan solat jua. Bepikir jua tu setan atu "Hmmm this doesn't work anymore. Plan B."

They're "smart" that way.

Seperti fiqh perlindungan jin dan makhluk halus ani. Nombor satu kah priority nya? Pasti ada lagi priority lain, seperti memahami ayat-ayat al-qurán dan al-hadith. Tapi sedar kah kitani syaitan melalaikan kitani dengan sesuatu perkara yang langsung bukan maksiat? Licik kan?

I guess we can email the radio personally hehe :) The radio needs tuning, the programs and talks that they deliver, songs, etc. Like seriously, they play nasyids yang lapuk-lapuk, would the youth really tune in to that? Hehe.

True! People like to talk about antu everytime they meet. Boys especially. Kalau inda pasal bini2, pasal bula. Inda pasal bula, pasal kerita. Inda pasal kerita, pasal antu. Memanjang tia tu bejam-jam pasal antu. Betanding cerita antu siapa yang paling berijap. Sekali sudah balik, sorang-sorang ijap. Tarus pasang 89.1fm arah radio dalam kereta. Huhuhu...
