Mufti’s Agree Our Athlete Postphone Fast

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 setuju atlit Olimpik tangguh puasa

  • Abdul Rahim Sabri
  • 5:01PM Jul 23 2012


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.

Malaysian Sailor Flies To London 2012

The Jalur Gemilang had been handed to the Malaysian Contingent and our first batch of the contingent had flew to London. It is the sailor Khairulnizam Affendy who depart from KLIA on 17th July.

Sailing will open its sail on 29th July and Khairulnizam will pull his sail on 30th July in the men’s laser  . Full sailing schedule HERE.

Our mission this year is the most challenging compared to our participation in previous Olympics since every sports loving citizen of Malaysia is hoping one of our athlete to compete in London bring home the Gold, the first ever Gold medal from the Olympics.

Has anyone ever wondered why bringing back Gold medal from London might be more momentous?
Well, Malaysia was once colonized by Great Britain. When British came they not only administer Malaya, Sabah and Sarawak but also took back some of our riches and our history. Now our Malaysian sports army will “invade” London and bring back history : first ever Gold in the Olympics.

Sunday Bike Ride @ Raub

Sunday morning at Raub Lake Garden was buzzing with cyclist from young kids to an 80 year old women and all are waiting excitedly to be flagged off. They come in all types of bicycle from folding bike, road race bike, mountain bike and pixies just for the intention of taking part in the monthly leisure activity. What is more meaningful for them is that their Parliament Representative who is also Minister of Tourism will lead them in the 11km ride covering Jalan Lipis and into Kampung Baharu Sempalit Hilir, back to Jalan Lipis and around Raub town before finishing at Raub Lake garden again.


The event was flagged off at about 7.00 in the morning with Minister of Tourism, Dato’ Sri Dr Ng Yen Yen leading about 300 cyclists who are not only residents of Raub but from other parts of Pahang.

The Cuti Cuti 1 Malaysia (CC1M) Sunday Bike Ride @ Raub was a followup of Cuti Cuti 1 Malaysia @ Raub Cycling Package launched on 6th May 2012. The Minister hopes Raub will be the nucleus of and attraction for Sunday Bike Ride to be organised on the first Sunday of every month.

The main objective of this program is to promote Raub as one of the cycling tourism destination and indirectly will spur tourism growth for Raub which in turn gives an impact on her economy.

Domestic Marketing Department of  Tourism Malaysia had already identified a few programs for CC1M Sunday Bike Ride@ Raub to be implemented every month with the following objectives:

  • promote and publicize development of local tourism products and increase tourism activities throughout the District of Raub.
  • Spur economic growth and increase income through tourism activities for local citizens
  • As a support to Persekutuan Kebangsaan Berbasikal Malaysia, state government and local cycling associations through organizing cycling activities.
The Minister hoped that this monthly activity will attract people from all walks of life not only local Raub residents but also those from surrounding areas such as Temerloh, Bentong Kuantan and Kuala Lumpur.
In tandem with the government policy this cycling activity can induce sportsmanship and positive healthy lifestyle among Malaysians. Make it as a family gathering and outing to knit a closer relationship within the family and neighbours. Cycling is also trending worldwide and it is reported sales of bicycle had increased between 20-20% since the program was launched.

The event ends with lucky draws and the main prize of the lucky draw a Shimano Marsstar was won by a cyclist who came from Fraser’s Hills.

Off Road Adventure @ Raub

I join the media group to Raub for the Cuti Cuti 1 Malaysia Sunday Bike Ride with Minister of Tourism on Sunday 8th July 2012. This activity is a monthly program initiated by Ministry of Tourism not only to promote the healthy lifestyle but as a tourism product too. I will post more of this on my BLOG.

Our journey starts on 7th July when we met in front of PWTC before moving on to Raub in two vehicles, a van and an MPV. Our entourage  consists of media personnels from the local newspaper bloggers and freelance writers comprising of 20 people.

Stop at BHP on Karak Highway at 9.30 to see that the petrol station is quite busy with a group of big bikers make a pit stop before continuing their weekend bike ride. At first is was the intention to have breakfast but due to time constrain it was packed and we ate them along the way while moving. We reach Bentong at about 10.25 A.M and stop again at Warung Nur for refreshment at a  stall before entering Bentong Town. While enjoying our breakfast, the biker group that stop at BHP station before, also stop to regroup thenselves not far from us.

Reached Sungai Klau at 12.10 and met our eco-adventure tour operator at Pasar Pagi Sungai Ruan. We will be going for our eco adventure to Lata Berembun a waterfall located about 15 kilometres into the hilly terrains and only accessible on 4WD. It was my first experience to be in this Off road adventure. Frankly when I received the travel itenary, and saw the program to Lata Berembun on 4WD, I thought it was just another ordinary travel on laterite road maybe, and least expected it was a Camel Trophy type journey. BTW the way the degree of challenge might be just about 20% of Camel Trophy. I just presume.Image

Before moving, our tour operator from Countryview Recreation Park Jeram Besu , Mrs Elly Yong, briefed us on safety measures and what to expect along the journey. We took off in four 4WD Jeeps along Jalan Sungai Chalit, the first few kilometres on surfaced road passing through small pantations and oil palm plantations. Just after the oil palm plantation, the road gets rougher and terrain gets more undulating.

There are three different phases of road that we face, the leisure drive phase, medium to mid range challenge and finally the “hardcore”. The driver of the jeep I am on, told us to brace ourselves, me, a blogger, a reporter and two photographer from Utusan and NST. He told us, “Ini kita mau naik, 4WD panggil hardcore punya.” (we re going to go through the hardcore phase). He really meant it. The track was made out of deep trenches, muddy and slippery. The gradient is about 35-45 degrees and one of the jeep in our group was stuck and had to be towed up. More PHOTO here and HERE.

It was a very good experience for me to feel it in real life, the Off Road 4WD adventure. It was just an imagination to do it when this adventure was made popular by Camel Trophy shown over TV years back.

The journey was a “treacherous” one at least for my experience, who had never done this before. But that does not deter me from joining such adventure again in future. That Lata Berembun outing is my first lesson to Off Road 4WD eco-adventure and in future I will be more mentally prepared. You have to feel it to know what Off road adventure really is.



When we arrive at Lata Berembun we saw groups of 4WD wheelers camped within the vicinity of the waterfall.

Vehicles are not allowed to drive up to the fringe of the waterfall and we have to walk up for about 5 minutes. The lush green Tropical Rainforest is so refreshing and you can feel the fresh air. The “ice” cool water is so tempting that one will regret if do not take a dip in it.


At 4.30 P.M we reached Hotel Jelai where our group will be staying overnight before the program on Sunday. We freshen up before leaving for Temerloh for another event by Tourism Malaysia, the launching of the Seminar Transformasi Homestay Malaysia 2012 by Tourism Malaysia Chief Director, Y.Bhg. Dato’ Mirza Mohammad Taiyab Beg, at Desa Murni Homestay, Temerloh
