Masjid Cina pertama bakal dibina di Ipoh

Assalamua’alaikum dan salah sejahtera,

Pembaca sekalian, isu masjid Cina pernah saya tulis sebelum ini tentang cadangan oleh YB Zulkifli Noordin dan ulasan saya mengenainya.

Sebarang komen sila baca entri di sana dulu ya.

Alhamdulillan wal syukru lillah, setelah terbinanya masjid pelbagai budaya di Kelantan yang mengambil imam pertamanya dari negeri China, hasil ilham oleh Tuan Guru Datuk Nik Abd Aziz Nik Mat, kini Perak pula bakal mengikuti langkah yang hampir sama.

DYTM Raja Muda Perak, Raja Dr Nazrin Sultan Azlan telah berkenan meluluskan pembinaan sebuah masjid Cina yang pertama di Perak di kawasan Ipoh. Ipoh memang kawasan yang mempunyai kapasiti kaum tionghua yang tinggi.

YB Lim Kit Siang antara yang mewakili kaum tersebut di Parlimen Ipoh Timur.

Mudah-mudahan dengan terbinanya masjid Cina di Ipoh, kaum Cina yang ramai itu akan lebih mudah untuk mengenali, memesrai dan akhirnya turut sama-sama mengimarahkan masjid tersebut di atas kalimah shahadatain yang sama dengan umat Islam yang Melayu.

Siapa tahu nanti bakal MB Perak akan datang dari kawasan yang majoritinya Cina Muslim?

Chinese Muslims get own mosque in Perak

By : Jaspal Singh

IPOH: Finally, Perak will have its first mosque for Chinese Muslims.

President of the state Islamic Affairs and Malay Customs Council Raja Dr Nazrin Shah, in giving his consent to the construction of the mosque, also approved a RM2 million allocation from the council to kick-start the project.

In his speech at the opening of the council’s 166th meeting here yesterday, Raja Nazrin, the Raja Muda of Perak, said he consented to having a Chinese Muslim mosque in the state after considering requests from the Chinese Muslim Association of Ipoh and Taman Tasek Jaya mosque committee here.

“Taking into account Malaysia’s diverse ethnicity, culture and language, I have given my consent for the construction of the mosque in Taman Tasek Jaya.”

Raja Nazrin said Islam did not restrict or prohibit its followers from practising their cultures, adding that no one should try to narrow the perception of Islam on such a matter.

He said Islam was given to all of humanity regardless of race or culture.

“In this country, Islam is not the sole domain of Malays. People of other races too have the right to pursue Islam in accordance with their own cultures provided these do not contradict the religion.

“In fact, the messages and values of Islam will be easily acceptable if these were propagated through the adherents’ own languages and cultures.”

Raja Nazrin said the diversity of the human population showed that God had intended for it in the first place and Islam, having come from God, was universal in its values and approaches.

“Islam does not reject cultural practices which are not inconsistent with it. Thereby, as long as cultural values do not go against Islam, no one should attempt to stop or discourage cultural practices.”

On the proposed Chinese Muslim mosque, he said the structure would be built according to Chinese architecture and it would serve not merely as a prayer venue but also as an information, community and knowledge centre.

Raja Nazrin said the mosque, which will be built on a 3,776 sq m site, would cater to Muslims living in Taman Seri Tasek, Taman Tasek Baru, Taman Manika-vasagam, Taman Tasek Jaya, Taman Musim Bunga, Taman Tasek Mutiara and Taman Tasek Berlian.

The regent proposed that a business centre and a cafeteria be built in the mosque compound so that the mosque would have comprehensive facilities for the Muslim community in the area.

He expressed his appreciation to personalities such as Chinese Muslim Association of Ipoh president Datuk Dr Fadzli Cheah Abdullah, who had been instrumental in seeking to establish the state’s first Chinese Muslim mosque.

Suara sumbang yang bakal diulang-ulang,

“Masjid dibina berasaskan taqwa bukannya bangsa, kelak nanti semua bangsa nak bina masjid sendiri.”

“Datang jelah masjid yang dah ada, bukannya masjid sekarang ni untuk orang Melayu je.”

Jawapan saya,

“Masjid yang ramainya umat Melayu yang bertaqwa itulah yang selalu memandang sinis terhadap mualaf-mualaf dan bukan mualaf Cina yang ingin mendekati masjid.”

“Pergi kamu, orang kafir tak boleh masuk masjid!” marah seorang siak masjid kepada seorang berbangsa Tionghua yang baru nak mengenali Islam dan mendatangi masjid untuk mendapat pencerahan.

“Yang menjauhkan masjid yang dah ada ini daripada kaum bukan Melayu ialah kaum Melayu Muslim sendiri.”

Sekian untuk kali ini.

Jazakallahukhairaa Tuanku!
