Ketua Menteri Melaka Datuk Seri Mohd Ali Rustam berkata, Pakatan Rakyat “dengki dan iri hati” apabila sengaja memperbesar-besarkan isu majlis perkahwinan ‘mega’ anak lelakinya.
Beliau berkata, perkara itu hanyalah mainan politik pembangkang dan beliau tidak kisah apa yang dilakukan oleh pihak berkenaan.
“Dia orang ini memang dengki dan tak ada kerja lain, gasak dia oranglah nak buat apa.
“Orang nak datang rumah saya sampai 130,000 sehingga dicatat dalam MBR (Malaysia Book Of Records) apa saya boleh buat, nasib baik anak saya kahwin kalau saya kahwin lagi ramai orang datang.
Apa you boleh buat kalau orang nak datang? Siapa yang naikkan billboard di bawah ini yang mengandungi “Semua Di jemput Hadhir”dan di iringi bendera BN? Jangan lah anggap raakyat bodoh.
Wahai Ali, awak tak memahami ajaran Al Qur’an ke? Sila rujuk kepada khutbah Imam Masjid al Haaram di Makkah.
Extracts from the Saudi Gazette:
“MAKKAH/MADINA – Sheikh Saleh Bin Mohammed Aal Talib, Imam and Khateeb of the Grand Mosque in Makkah advised Muslims to be mindful of Allah Almighty and fear Him.
In his Friday sermon at the Grand Mosque in Makkah, Sheikh Aal Talib said Islam is the religion of justice and fairness (Qist), balance and moderation. It is distinguished by these principles in all aspects and areas of thought and action.
He said that Islam came with a message of justice and equity in all matters concerning human life. Sheikh Aal Talib warned against and denounced a conduct that contradicts its principles – that is, extravagance (Israf). He said extravagance is a shameful trait and a perverse conduct that contravenes Islamic Shariah. The Holy Qur’an has squarely condemned extravagance at no less than 23 places and has deplored a similar conduct known as “Tabdheer” or wastefulness at several other places.
Sheikh Aal Talib said Israf or extravagance is exceeding the permitted limits and whatever is spent or consumed in other than its rightful place and manner is “Tabdheer.” Allah strongly dislikes those who are extravagant and the Qur’an has said in several verses that the Hellfire will be the abode of those who are extravagant. In other verses, Allah said the extravagant people will face eternal doom.
Sheikh Aal Talib quoted the Prophet (peace be upon him) as saying: “Eat, give alms and wear clothes, but without excess (Israf) or arrogance (Makheelah).” He said that Allah described the lot of many nations that were destroyed for being extravagant and their destruction came as a result of their committing excesses. It is a sufficient condemnation that extravagance is deprecated and described as the attribute of the Satans and extravagant people are included among the followers of the Satans. Allah describes the squanderers as brothers of the Satans and the Satan is well known for his ungratefulness (Kufr) to Allah.
Sheikh Aal Talib criticized the lavish spending and great extravagance that is seen in parties and on occasions like wedding parties.
Sheikh Aal Talib said the Arabs during the pre-Islamic (Al-Jahiliyah) period used to spend lavishly and throw banquets in order to show off so that people would talk about that and praise them in their poems, but Allah forbade such extravagant practices. Aal Talib asked: “Has this attribute of the Jahiliyah – showing off and going beyond one’s means to win people’s praise – returned?”
Baik cepat bertaubat la Ali.
