In the previous post you have seen the Muslim Miss World thingy. If they have American Idol, we have the 'Imam muda' talent contest. If they have fashion shows, there is also the 'Islamic' fashion show.
Now to copycat the Western Miss Universe contest, they have come up with the 'Muslim Miss World' contest.
A lot of people simply cannot see the hypocrisy behind this Muslims aping the non Muslims. And they even use religious beliefs to camouflage the imitation.
It is still an imitation. And imitation is the best form of compliment. When you imitate a people or copycat what they do, then you are conceding that they are better than you.
Which is actually not a bad thing to do. When one human being does something useful and progresses - other humans will notice the progress. Soon the entire village, town and country progresses along. That is how progress spreads - when people start imitating it. (Although I cannot extend this argument to the Miss World contest. At least the American Idol can produce singers and songs that can bring relaxation and enjoyment to millions of human beings).
But why would the Muslims want to imitate behaviour that you have condemned as bad or not good? Ini yang tak masuk akal.
If the Miss Universe is bad, how can the Muslim Miss World be good? If American Idol is bad how can the Imam Muda be good? Please explain.
Here is a simple question - the American Idol contest is a duniawi thing or an akhirat thing?
It is a competition lah kawan - the winners win prizes and money. The TV stations and the promoters make millions from advertising and promotions. It is definitely duniawi. The same argument applies for the Miss Universe and the fashion shows. It is all about making money.
Likewise when you have the 'Imam Muda' contest for example - the winners also win money and prizes. The Miss Universe covers up less and win money and prizes. You say that is wrong. The Muslim Miss Universe covers up more but also wins money and prizes. And you say that is ok? The TV stations, sponsors, organisers and the contestants still make money and win prizes. Isnt that all about duniawi? Apa beza sangat?
First you kutuk the West and the non Muslims. Then you start imitating exactly what they do. But you cover up your copycatting with religious camouflage.
(In some areas it is the West that is catching up with the Muslims. The Muslims have had "legalised" kahwin mutaah, kahwin misyar and one more temporary kahwin jihad al munakaha long before the West. The West used to label it 'adultery', 'promiscuity', 'living in sin' and a few other words. Only recently in the 20th century the West has legalised this type of behaviour. They now call it 'cohabitation', 'living together', 'contractual partners', 'soul mates' and all sorts of other jargon. Call it what you want (or camouflage it anyway you want) but the end result is the same. In this area the West of the 20th century has caught up with the Muslims.)
The Muslim people are terribly confused.
