Religion is more important than race.

I DIDN'T ASK TO BE BORN A MALAY, SAYS NIK AZIZ


KOTA BAHARU, 27 Feb (Bernama) -- PAS spiritual leader Datuk Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat said today that he did not ask to be born a Malay. (He's also the Chief Minister of Kelantan, my homestate).

The Kelantan Mentri Besar added that it was only by coincidence that he was born in this country.

Nik Aziz said that it did not matter what community he was born into as long as he was a Muslim.

He was responding to a statement by Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad that he should be grateful for being born a Malay because this meant that he would be Muslim.

Nik Aziz said that all races were the same, and what made a person special was that he was a Muslim.

He said that he was striving for Islam as a religion of moderation and was opposed to extremism which contradicted Islam.

Assalamualaikum Kak'Chik

I love this speech of Nik Aziz.
Faith is make people special not a race.
I have many experiences of racial discrimination by muslim,it's just sad.
I was hurted by words of some Thai-Melayu "You aren't a muslim because not Melayu."
I'm not a Melayu but I'm greatful for born an Adam's child.
I Thanks God everyday for the test I passed and are suffering.
Race is not matter,Faith is important!

Wa'alaikummussalam Hannah.
Thank you for supporting him on this matter. Some people just do not know how to control their mouth and don't even know the priority between Islam and race.

ps insyaallah my mom is better now, alhamdulillah.
