Mufti’s Agree Our Athlete Postphone Fast

on

London2012 has been scheduled to take place during the time when Muslims the whole world over are performing their compulsory fasting in Ramadhan. Not only Malaysian Muslim athletes have to give maximum performance during the fasting month, but also other Muslim athletes. 
Fasting during the month of Ramadhan has been observed piously as a as an act of worship to Allah SWT. By all means obedient Muslims will fast without fail and it is one of the five pillars of Islam. Islam is not a religion of force and does not spread through the end of the sword. Islam provides flexibility to its followers even when it is related to worship. There are times when a Muslim can hold his/her worship based on guidelines agreed upon by Muslim scholars. These guidelines are again based on the Quran and Hadiths.
The following article from Malaysiakini is related to our Muslim athlete who is going to perform during the Ramadhan in the Olympics to be held from 27th July to 12th August 2012. In general, a few Muftis agree that our Muslim athlete can delay their fast since they are musafir’s and it is one of the reason that a Muslim can delay fasting. Wallahualam.

Mufti Perlis Dr Juanda Jaya bersetuju dengan pandangan Mufti Perak Tan Sri Harussani dan bekas mufti Perlis Prof Datuk Dr Mohd Asri Zainul Abidin supaya atlit Muslim yang mewakili Malaysia di temasya Sukan Olimpik, menangguhkan ibadah puasa.

“Setuju (dengan Harussani dan Dr Asri) sebab mereka (atlit) musafir dan mereka berhak ambil rukhsah dan keringanan yang diperkenankan oleh syarak,” kata Dr Juanda melalui kiriman SMS kepadaMalaysiakini


Bagaimanapun, tokoh agama itu berkata ia terserah kepada atlit tersebut sama ada berpuasa ataupun tidak sekalipun ia merupakan “keluasan agama”.

Dr Juanda mengulas pandangan Harussani dan Dr Asri yang dilaporkan berkata, atlit Muslim boleh menangguhkan puasa bagi mengelakkan daripada dituduh tidak beri kerjasama, diboikot atau boleh menjejaskan peluang kemenangan. 


Malah Dr Asri yang juga pensyarah kanan Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM) dilaporkan The New Straits Times sebagai berkata, atlit boleh berbuat demikian kerana mereka bermusafir.

Isu berkenaan turut mendapat perhatian Persatuan Ulama Malaysia (PUM) yang menggesa Majlis Fatwa Kebangsaan (MFK) supaya bersidang bagi memutuskan pandangan mereka berhubung perkara itu.

Setiausaha PUM Dr Mohd Roslan Mohd Nor kepada dihubungi Malaysiakinipetang ini berkata pandangan yang dikemukakan itu bukan pandangan rasmi kerajaan.

“Umat Islam memerlukan satu panduan yang sama. Kita menghormati padangan Tan Sri Harussani dan Dr Asri. Tetapi pandangan mereka tidak mewakili satu badan yang berpusat dari kerajaan. 

“Itu pandangan peribadi mereka,” katanya yang menambah PUM telah berbincang mengenai perkara itu sebelum ini.

Bagaimanapun masyarakat Islam sangat memerlukan keputusan majlis itu dan PUM mahu diselaraskan di peringkat kebangsaan, kata Dr Mohd Roslan lagi.
