CAUGHT IN THE WORLD OF HALAL AND HARAM

by - Hesmel Faznee Faisal

Salam, to fellow bloggers and readers of this self proclaimed blog!

The Government had finally decided not to legalize sports gambling and will stick to its decision to do so.

Likewise, this decision has indeed given more opportunities to the underworld bookies to pursue their activities.

As reported here in the newspaper millions of ringgit had been spent by punters, either through the regular practice (that is placing bets with friends, foe or likewise Jose!) or the online process.

The Government is caught in a catch 22 situation in regards to this. We have to admit to the fact that the underworld gamblers have won hands down this time around and they are now free to roam around both the analogue and cyber world making arrangement and organizing bets without having a license to operate such businesses!

Then again, there is always a flip side of the coin (no Jose, I was not making any dear reference to the flip-flopping episode of this country!). A minister had announced here  that all of the income tax collected from the “non halal” resources will then be channeled into a special account.

It is quite puzzling to think that we now have two separate avenues for our income; the halal and the non halal.

Wouldn’t it be a bit peculiar to have that? We are fully aware  that in the end, all of the resources will go back to us through development financing and we cannot expect to have differences between the halal and the non halal consumers as this will lead to calamity and dislodge the Government’s intention of creating unity amongst us through the Spirit of 1 Malaysia!

The Government should legalized sports gambling, provided at the same time they also need to emphasize the importance in  educating the masses on the negative impact of gambling than to engage in an endless debate.

It is quite hilarious to hear all sorts of arguments from the context of halal and haram from the scholars when we know that some of them have their hands in doing haram things?

For instance, don’t you think that smoking, telling lies and spreading wild accusations on another Muslims are considered haram, looking from Islam’s point of view?

I rest my case.

Hesmel, judi dan pertaruhan adalah haram di sisi agama. Noktah.

Judi itu menjadi haram kepada orang Islam apabila umat Islam itu, misalannya secara peribadi pergi ke kedai, membeli dan menerima duit itu seandainya menang.

Kita kena lihat konteks haram/halal itu secara lebih dan dengan lebih dalam. Apakah jika kita tidak memberi lesen, maka judi akan dapat dihapuskan?

Di dalam soal ini, jika lesen itu tidak diberikan, golongan underworld, yang menjadi dalang kepada sports betting ini akan menjadi golongan yang paling beruntung dan makin bertambah banyaklah lagi masalah judi-judi haram ini.

Dianggarkan lebih kurang RM2-5 billion telah dijanakan melalui judi haram ini.

Bayangkan wang tersebut boleh disalurkan untuk membangunkan jalanraya dan sebagainya.

Jika ingin dilihat daripada konteks sumber halal/haram, Masjid Negara itu sendiri dibina melalui bantuan dan sumbangan daripada beberapa pihak bukan Islam kerana mereka juga turut ingin mendapat berkat hasil daripada membina Masjid tersebut. Perkara ini dinyatakan oleh Tunku di dalam ucapan beliau semasa beliau merasmikan masjid tersebut.

Pada masa itu, beliau juga telah turut menjemput semua rakyat tanpa mengira agama untuk masuk melihat kecantikan masjid tersebut.

Apabila lesen itu diberikan kepada sesuatu pihak, ianya boleh dipantau dan diawasi oleh pihak Kerajaan. Bukanlah bererti dengan memberi lesen, sesiapa sahaja boleh berjudi.

Tidak. Aplikasi dan syarat-syaratnya masih lagi sama dengan judi di kedai 4 ekor, Genting dan lain-lain iaitu umat Islam dilarang daripada membeli dan berjudi.

Itu rasionalnya.
