On the 29th January, 2013, Ustaz Azhar Idrus stated the following on his Facebook page.
Ustaz Azhar is a Pluralist?
Ustaz Azhar said that “Islam dan Kristian bertuhankan Allah” or “Islam and Christians’ god is Allah”. Did he mean that the Muslims and the Christians believe in the same god and that is Allah? Does he believe in the teaching of Pluralism of Religion?
If so, he seem to agree with Lim Guan Eng’s suggestion to use the word Allah as the Christian’s god in the Malay version of the Bible?
Muslim’s And Christian’s God is not the Same!
The Christians believe in the Trinity. We Muslims believe in Allah, Allah Al-Ahad, Allah is one!
Surah Al-‘Ikhlas (English Translation by Yusuf Ali):
- Say: He is Allah, the One and Only;
- Allah, the Eternal, Absolute;
- He begetteth not, nor is He begotten;
- And there is none like unto Him.
The first of the five pillars of Islam is to declare that there is NO GOD BUT ALLAH and the Prophet Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah. So if Allah is one, does not give birth, nor is born, then how can Allah be the same as the Christian’s god?
If Ustaz Azhar believes that the Muslim’s god is the same as the Chritian’s, then how can he give speeches and ‘classes’ concerning Islam?
Ustaz Azhar is one of PAS’s favourite ustaz, does PAS believe in Pluralism too? Or does PAS do not care about what their ustaz believes as long as they are popular and can make a lot of people vote for them?
Here’s to prove that Uztaz Azhar is Pro-PAS…
