Bacalah



Although I found the last bits of it a bit cheesy, but it's a very nice video. I also found some of the messages chosen a bit disturbing. But, some of the bits spliced in were quite funny. I'd like to dedicate the video to all the people out there, who do not see the truth of the matter.

This applies to very many people whom I know. Some are just apathetic, while others are just ill informed. This triggered the memory of something that I had come across in school, about reading and learning. I duly looked it up on Wikipedia. So, to some of my friends who are ill-informed (one of my blog readers in particular), I quote:
"Bacalah dengan menyebut nama Tuhanmu yang menciptakan manusia dari segumpal darah. Bacalah, dengan nama Tuhanmu yang Amat Pemurah, yang mengajar manusia dengan perantaraan (menulis, membaca). Dia mengajarkan kepada manusia apa yang tidak diketahuinya."
So, go forth and read! Please get your facts straight, before you get your knickers in a twist. Don't trust everything that the government tells you! If I want to quote X-Files, I'll say that "The Truth is Out There".

That quote is actually the very first revelation from God to prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), via Archangel Gabriel. It's Surah Al-Alaq verse 1--5.

Quote "So, to some of my friends who are ill-informed (one of my blog readers in particular)"...I wonder...Anyway, nice piece of video ;) Guy Fawkes wanted to blow up the parliament in the name of religion in 1605, in the movie however, it was done in the name of freedom, justice and rights of people. But...in reality, in the Malaysia, would blowing up of the parliament (change in leadership) make any difference? just some things to ponder
