Say No to Man U?

Malaysia is a soccer-mad nation. Manchester United is probably the most popular European football club in this country. However, recently the Islamic authorities have warned that Muslims should not don the jersey of the Red Devils, as its emblem features a devil.

Note: Haram is the Islamic term for ‘unlawful’.

Further, the Islamic authorities have also told the Muslims to not wear the jersey of Barcelona FC, whose logo contains a cross.

Further, Muslims are also told to shun the jersey of Liverpool FC. The main sponsor of the football club is Carlsberg, the bear-maker.


Now, consider this: Malaysia’s national flag has a symbol of Islam – new moon. Should Malaysian Christians to salute it?

  13. Perkara 3(1) Perlembagaan Persekutuan memperuntukkan bahawa agama Islam ialah agama bagi Persekutuan tetapi agama-agama lain boleh diamalkan dengan aman dan damai di mana-mana bahagian Persekutuan.

    so if u malaysian christians feel like not to respect the official religion of this MALAY country (MALAYsia) ... you don't deserve to live in this MALAYsia ... do i make myself clear ???.

    p.s.: we are watching u ....

  14. shame on you
    You didnt know the truth

    U misunderstood about law of Islam
    and U look cynical on Islam view.

    Lets me help U bro.

    Islam allow muslim support as a fan on europe club
    Islam allow muslim wear shirts of football club
    Islam allow muslim play and support the football
    coz its 1 of IBADAH
    and Allah loves muslim make ibadah through sports.

    However, it have several things should be consider.

    Check it out :

    1_
    Red devil used symbol of lion
    which lion symbolic of The Beast
    The Beast also known as The Anti-Christ
    or Muslim known as Dajjal, The False Messiah.

    Under bible, "Book of Revealation”
    n “Book of Daniel Chapter 7” had mentioned the
    meaning of The Beast, history of The Beast, and
    his threat to Christian and Islam.

    Do u didnt notice that?
    Poor Jesus have humankind like u if u're Christians.
    But if U r budhha Im not blame on u due to this misconceptions.

    and for Muslims most of us a'dy knows the movement of anti-christ/Dajjal.

    and the logic is

    Why MU use The Red Devil ?
    Direct claim as DEVIL
    and
    RED which belongs to satan colour (symbolic).
    still feel it just a coincidence ???

    2_
    Barcelona FC logo contain cross.
    Yes.. the logo of that taken from the The Knight Templar
    belongs to cross of Christian.
    Most europe country have this symbols and used part of their religion.

    And wear that logo same like muslim wear the cross.

    3_
    The main sponsor of the football club is Carlsberg.
    U clearly knows Muslim prohibited from drink beer and
    the company put their name on shirts ?
    Should muslims wear that ?
    U know the answer

    its same like
    the non muslim wear shirts that have
    statement as "Islam" / "Syahadah" / "Muhammad"
    Do u want to wear it ?
    --------------------------------

    Islam not cruel to stop muslim
    love football and its club
    but
    its restricted only things that
    against the teachings of Islam.

    Muslim can wear the club shirt as long as not
    contain the symbol of darkness like
    luciferism and others religion.

    For the flag isues that has a
    'symbol of Islam' as u mentioned :
    If u feel its interfere your life and your religion,
    U feel free to find another country and should not longer use status as "Malaysian Citizen".
    U can go China, Singapore maybe, or US to have business 'ong'

    U and others like U should be grateful coz
    we Malay give u live in this Tanah Melayu
    or modern name as MALAYsia.

    U here feel free to choose any religion
    U here feel free to make money money money
    U here feel free to preaching the religion

    Prove ???
    Gov. pass the project of Calvary Convention Centre
    which the convention are for non muslim
    and the most largest in Southeast Asia.

    What else you want ???

    Please respect in each other.
    Malaysia not only belong to Malay
    but also SHARE it with others race.

    "Though people have different status in life,
    everybody's dignity is the same" - IP Man.

    I'm sorry, if i have unwittingly hurt you.

    Malaysian,
    Abdullah

    1. It's funny how some people offer a lengthy explanation on how and why the author has misunderstood the religion. I don't think the author's candor was aimed at belittling any religion, but more so the triviality and narrow-mindedness of our authorities. I personally have Muslim friends all around the world, mostly from the Middle East, most of whom laugh at how Malaysian authorities perceive religion and how they enforce it into legislation and the constitution. Shame on us, indeed.

      P/S: And mind you, this "tanah" doesn't belong to you; it belongs to Malaysians. Go read up on your world history and new discoveries of ancient artifacts, and NOT your misconstrued-high-school-history-book. The fact that you claim your rights to be here to be far more superior than the rest of us just goes to show how UN-MALAYSIAN you are.

      I hope that you've somehow been enlightened since you last posted this.
      Have a good day.
