1. As always, Mufti Menk (who’s been in Malaysia since the beginning of Ramadan) imparts wisdom and positivity in his talks. During a talk in Masjid Taqwa, TTDI, he told the audience that we should not say that the MH17 tragedy was a punishment for not only is it insensitive but can be seen as blasphemous.

    We are all mourning over the loss of our beloved Malaysians and  other passengers on MH17. Please be respectful and sensitive with your words. It could have been your friend or family member.

    Our sincere condolences and prayers for those who have lost their lives in this awful tragedy. Al-Fatihah.

  2. Please be sensitive. I know our country isn’t perfect and we have plenty of flaws, but this is not the time to play the blame game to our government and Malaysian Airlines. This was not the pilots fault either, this was an attack. An attack. 

     

  3. Not another tragic news! It has only been half a year and already, we have suffered so much heartbreak. May we have the strength to power through this Ramadan.

     

  4. Heartfelt condolences to the loved ones of Alif Alexandre Faizal Weber who passed away today in BSC. Suicide is never the answer no matter how hard life seems to be. Al-Fatihah.

     
  5. Ramadhan - it’s the time of year again when we look forward to buy our kuih-kuih from pasar Ramadhan in the evening, we eat our dates before we break our fast, our lemangs to be served with rendang, shopping for our baju raya, thousands of family gatherings within a month and of course, the long-hours stuck in traffic on the way to balik kampung. Basically, Ramadhan is the month we become fatter. Selamat Berpuasa, Malaysians and may all of you have a blessed Ramadhan. InsyaAllah.

  8. Deepest condolences to Perak Family on the demise of DYMM Sultan of Perak and the 9th Yang di-Pertuan Agong (King Of Malaysia), Sultan Azlan Muhibbuddin Shah ibni Almarhum Sultan Yusuf Izzudin. An avid sportsmen, a philosopher Ruler, a man to be truly missed by his subjects. 

    His Royal Highness passed away today at 1:30pm at Institut Jantung Negara in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia today due to “natural causes.”
