Young Malay says I want to be an Ustaz like Harussani Zakaria!

I want to be like Harussani because I get to sit with the most corrupt Prime Minister in the world

Until the 1990s, a Malay boy would  usually reply that his ambition would be to become a doctor, a lawyer or an engineer. Today, a sea change has occurred.

A child social worker said,

“These days, many Malay boys aspire to become ustaz. They appear to have no other ambition, or interests. I would have thought that their parents would have wished the sons to achieve much more in life.  An engineer or scientist to help his community. A lecturer to inspire the young. Vocational courses used to be all the rage. A welder can earn very good money these days,  and is in great demand.Today, the boys lack the element of curiosity. They have no desire to know how things work. Or travel. Or yearn for knowledge. That troubles me.”

Older Malaysians will remember that the majority of the Malays of the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s, were a different breed from the Malays of today. Many Malays today, are intolerant and arrogant.

They claim superiority over other Malaysians, but when it comes to meritocracy, they suddenly cry foul, and blame the non-Malays of denying them of their rights.


Malay Arab Wannabes

The Malays of yesteryear, were fun loving, they could laugh at themselves, and had many non-Malay friends. They were proud of their Malay culture, language, dress and food.

Today, the Malays have allowed the insidious Arabisation to creep into their everyday life, and dilute their own culture. Their children are given Arabic sounding names, which are difficult to spell and are almost unpronounceable.

They wear Arabic robes, cover themselves, as if they are expecting a desert sand storm. During Ramadhan, they insist on breaking their fast with dates, because the prophet broke his, with dates. Why does the Malay man not ride his camel to work, rather than terrorise other road users with his kapchai or Proton?

The Malays could have worked harder, to forge ahead in the field of education, commerce and agriculture, but they seemed content, with what they had. In time, other communities overtook them, and they had only themselves to blame. This was one failing which successive leaders failed to address.

Malay Warriors of the 21st Century

Instead of making Malays change their attitude towards work and relationships, our leaders encouraged them to become sloths, blaming others for their shortcomings. They did not encourage self-improvement, and the leaders used religion to further enslave the Malay mind.

Despite the technological advances, the opportunities and the billions of ringgits poured into the NEP, the Malay is averse to change. Why has he failed to make a success of himself?

In the 1980s, most of the Malays who went abroad to study, clumped together in their own little groups, at university.

Did they suffer from culture shock? Did they feel threatened by the orang putih? Some got involved in the dakwah movement, and sought refuge with them, perhaps, because of their shared religion. The Malays who returned, acted as if they had never set foot abroad.

Malays who were sent to study in the middle east, returned home and introduced aspects of the Arabic way of life which today, has infiltrated our rich Malay culture.

Gone are our wayang kulits, our jogets, our bajus, our pagan rituals which were steeped in Hinduism, the Malay religion long before Islam came to our shores.

Malays in western clothing do not tend to look down on other Malays. However, the Arabised Malays, with their robes, their tudung, their hijab, their reluctance to shake hands with members of the opposite sex, their hostility towards non-Malays, and their smattering of Arabic phrases, pretend to be holier than thou.

Most of them patronise the Malays who prefer to remain Malay. In other words, Malays didn’t just emulate the Arabs, but allowed their minds to be corrupted, as well.

The Saudi Arabians depend on Pakistani and Bangladeshi menial labourers. We, too, depend heavily on Bangladeshi workers. If he’s not careful, the ‘superior’ Malay will be an Arab… or perhaps a Bangladeshi.

  1. This year I didn’t have one single Malay visitor to my CNY Open House… the Malay family living 2 doors away also drove to God knows where for holidays…

  2. Why wouldnt they want to be an Ustaz like Harussani?
    Gets a datukship.
    Probably gets loads of money.
    Have idiots that think what you say is always true.
    Gets to go on tv.
    Gets to marry 4!(at one time)- young ones too!
    Have people write your sermon and not have to think about it.
    Have people think youre holy.
    I really could go on…..

  3. It’s naive to just criticise the Arabisation of Malay. Truth is young Malays wanting to be Arabic is a reflection of their desperation for relevance – natural reaction to alienation. The issue is why decades of NEP so many still feel Alienated? It is a failure of NEP and UMNO ideas. If affirmative action works, these young Malay would want to lead even in religion, they should be leading reformist of Islam. The fact they are followers of failures covered up with oil wealth is a warning of future economic and social failures, collapse actually.

  4. Why wouldn’t they want to be an Ustaz like Harunsani?

    They get the crowds drooling over their sex stories at ceramahs.
    They can have up to 4 nubile ones to satisfy their vim and vigour.
    Appear regularly lon TV to entertain with their antics.
    Make a tidy fortune from the sale of holy dates and H2O.
    Rub shoulders with the elite no matter how putrid they may be.
    Be wined and dined lavishly at every appearance.
    Live a life of glamor, expensive cars, and mansions.

    Hell, if that is not the best way to get to heaven without dying, I don’t know what is.

  5. The hard-working Bangladeshi immigrants will overtake the local
    “Sons of the Soil” soon. They just need to establish an “ethnic
    enclave economy” (as earlier generations of immigrants from south China have done). Thereafter, they will capture UMNO Baru itself.

    So, we will have both an Arabisation and Bangla-disation of local
    Malay culture.

  6. Harussani? This is the biggest idiot this side of the peninsula. His only claim to fame is making stupid pronouncements when you least expect. Somehow his royal patron is so impressed or perhaps scared of him.

  7. Young Malay wants to be Ustaz:
    Instant stardom, become celebrity and get title Tan Sri. Given contract become Mufti for life. Even the Sultan can’t and won’t say anything.
    No need to study hard, pass SPM, learn a few Arabic phrases, put on a Judah, skull cap and start video on YouTube. Have audience laughing non stop and get hefty fees to do ceramah and once in a while someone will offer their daughter in marriage. Wedding also sponsored, no need large dowry, give Quran and make promise to teach wife(wives) the religion.
    Once established, offers will come in from JAIS, JAKIM, IKIM, YAPIEM and many other Islamic organization to be a board member or executive.
    So why study hard and have no employment or if employed with low pay, no recognition and stuck in mediocrity.

  8. I am sure the Mufti of Perak wll not want to end his life on earth. He is getting the
    best of what most will not be able to achieve. Up there is not a guarantee that
    he will be rewarded or maybe not able to get that safe passage there. Here where
    he is will be his most blessed place with comfort.

  9. Even if I have just a motorcycle I would still like to have 4 wives like that Mufti of the Silver Sate…

  10. Of course young malays want to be like the perak ustaz. They get to have sex on the camel’s back with their 4 wives.
