Excuse me, God made me a Malay!


Alhamdulillah wa shukrulillah for nikmat al-ijad - the blessings of being - that He has actually created us. When the Supreme Creator created us, He created us equal as His creation, and equally beautiful at that. Though some of us might insist that He has created us in various degree of beauty as defined by the eyes of the mortals. How rude can we be? True, He has created us differently with different colors and different features reflecting the multiplicity of His creations. On one hand we pretend to be Muslims and accept that wisdom. On the other hand, we quietly set boundaries based on our physical differences.

Worse still, we delimit the universality of love. "Sorry, you can't come into our family because you are not one of us!"

How dare you? Excuse me.....God made me a Malay!

Fortunately, race is not a prerequisite in the eyes of Allah, the All-Encompassing Love.
