if such intangible things like words can hurt. That makes one a weakling. Words and meaning are invented. They are not self-existent. Even god has been reduced to fit into ur languages not u fit into god. does god need to know language? During the 2nd world war.. All christian countries involved were praying. Germany lost, and churchill said something like "perhaps god don understand german" - how ridiculous. 

if you say a particular word to a kid. how does he know whether its bad or good? he may keep mentioning the word without judgement, which signifies innocence. The bad ones are the one telling him this is bad that is bad. What all have been doing is they change their curse words to "acceptable" words for example.. when something adverse happens to a christian he/she may say "jesus christ!" The word may be acceptable, but behind it is meant to be a curse.. it is poison. This is where the hypocrisy is. 

Now since someone mentioned he was on the path of sufism, then respect life on his behalf. Why be overly serious and overreacting toward death? Sufism is the ultimate flowering of the path of prayer. One is intensely grateful for the creator and his creations, be it just a blade of a grass, but tradition may misunderstand that the grateful one is worshiping the grass. Just like the great misunderstanding showed toward al hilaj mansoor and his master, junnaid in the teachings of sufism. Al hilaj mansoor was crucified more gruesomely compared to jesus christ. his limbs were chopped off one by one until just the torso is left, just because of words, and language.

Such violence. And i can see all that in everyone in u in here who feels i need to be stoned. Instead of telling me to delete the msg... u are somehow excited in something violent to happen to me. If my  words can make u raise ur fist then im thankful.. such power u give to me. I will accept the punishment that will come my way, because i have no interest to protect, and i know i did no wrong. Frankly im afraid, but im not afraid to fear.

I want to see whether the police has the guts to take action against the nameless name, a pariah in the making and a bloody kurang ajar. The Istana too should do something about it.

hearing about Dato' Seri Ashman Shah's qualities has made me send a prayer to him. The good go young they say. As for the guy who has to be stonned ... actually that is how a great percentage of our young go about addressing everything today. They use swear words freely in public irrelevant the older people are around. It has become a common expression to them....where did we - the school and parents - go wrong in educating them about social etiquette. You can't take this boy off the scene because then you won't have a reading about how a sample of the population thinks and uttters. Hopefully the other comments has educated him and all others who think and rant like him.

What is the point of trying to educate some a**hole the etique of addressing such scenario? I have never met the late **** Dato' Asmah Shah, but I have heard nothing but sweet and pleasant things about him. Who are we to judge or to throw judement on others? Have some common sense to forward some respect for the dearly departed..

My condolences to his family also.

May his soul lay in peace..........................

I met **** Ashman Shah last time almost 9 years ago. I have never seen a pious person like him in my whole life, He was a Prince but lived his life among ordinary people, help them and specially as Imam of  Naqshbandiya Haqqaniya Order he shows the right path of Sufism to his followers. Today I feel a great loss for Malaysia and his followers that they lost a precious gem of this world. I want to share my deep condolence with his wife and children as well as **** Azlan Shaha on this non-recoverable loss. May Allah lead him in Jannat Al Firdous.  (Ameen)

stoned fella,

such fearful comments and pointers. U dun even have the courage to address me directly. Well thanks for being afraid for me ;)

At least i know now the respect u have toward others are simply hypocritical. It is out of fear. 

I didnt side track my statements, you just didnt have the capacity to comprehend what im saying.

I shall only re-spect that which i already know, already seen. Otherwise what is there to re-spect? 

You believe nobody did me wrong, but I know i did no wrong either.

While we have the privilege to comment. Be prudent and restrain from name calling. The one with earlier comments and using swear words- be prepared to face the music. The deceased's family are still mourning and preparing for  burial , yet you started name calling. Have  some respect. You  probably in trouble for underestimating how influential  the Royal Family is.

1) your e mail address is traceble.

2) your IP address is traceble.

3) mails you sent to your friends/relatives can lead up to your doorstep after some questioning.

4) your photo is on the page.

5) Don't try to side-track your earlier NEGATIVE offending statements by qouting  Alexander the Great.

6) my advice- better DON'T sleep at home  tonight  . never know who (special branch) or palace staff might come knocking at your door in the middle of the night. In short leave  the country if you can afford. Or else learn to be civilised and be respectful.At least  don't be dumb.

 

i believe the deceased and his immediate family never did you any wrong.

no i do not know.

read the story about the dialogue between alexander the great and diogenes. And find out who is the real emperor and the real beggar.

And what was alexander's last wish before he died at the age of 33.

One can be a king of the whole world, but when death comes his true self will surface. By then it will be too late. It has always been too late. Death has always been untimely.
