The Malay Privileges (Part 2)

After a series of speeches made by the Sultan of Perak and Sultan of Pahang, the topic of Malay Privileges still lingers on. The latest is, the Sultan of Johor, HRH Sultan Ibrahim ibni Almarhum Sultan Iskandar following their footsteps. The racial issue in Malaysia has always been used by some group of politicians for their own personal gain. Thus, it led a series of speeches by Sultans to clarify the issues.

Sultan of Johor

Sultan Ibrahim

HRH Sultan Ibrahim of Johor has reminded the Malays to always do a self reflection and always bear in mind to protect the Malay Sovereignty. It is because of recent event where a certain groups of Malay have tried to denied and questioned it even has been written in the country’s constitution. In his speech, the Sultan of Johor has stated that, he must remind the citizens who not understand or misunderstood about the term of ‘Malay Supremacy’. It is about the Malay Rulers sovereignty and its people that preserves to this very day and not about a literal relation of Master and Slave.

Malay Supremacy refers to the sovereignty of the Malay States with the ranking of the Malay Rulers as the Head of State. When the nation gets its independence, the British handed back the country to its rightful owner, the Malay Rulers and its people. And thus, with the formation and the spirits of Federation, all races rights and privileges is secured, respected and protected by the constitution.

Maal Hijrah 1432

Assalamualaikum and Peace be upon all of you
Welcome to my blog.


To all my fellow Muslims brothers, Radin’s Blog wishing all of you a happy brand New Year of 1432 Hijrah. May the goodness that all of us achieves will remain in this year. I’m hoping that all of us did not forget about the last year and New Year prayer.

Hijrah Calendar

Okay, probably most of us have already familiar with the Hijrah Calendar system. It is first in used during the administration of the second Caliph of Islam, Amirul Mukminin Umar al-Khattab. The calendar has widely been used at that time, but there is no yearly system. Thus, the problems occur when the Governor in the Muslim Nation receives a letter of development from the Caliph. The letter announce clearly of the date, but it does not state it the year, whether it is for this year or the next year. When the matter was forwarded to the Caliph, there are several suggestion to start the new Muslim Calendar with several ideas of when the starts of the calendar. And, it is agreed by all to make the year of Hijrah event takes place will be the first year of Islam, thus its name. The Hijrah Calendar.

It is a lunar calendar and has 12 months. Please do not forget it, okay?
