mendidik anak mengenai ketuhanan

I am discussing some stuff the other day with my colleague, my cube neighbor.. then it came about teaching kids religious stuffs since the beginning. He told me something that I think everyone should know, a good info he got from ceramah somewhere.

Especially in Penang, where there are so many Chinese, and so many Chinese tokong, the kids will surely aske one day; "mama, orang tu buat apa?" when they see those non muslim do their sembah to their thingie, the lil red house.

Some might say this, which I think is so true most answered like this "Diorang tengah sembahyang, tu tuhan depa yang depa sembah tu"

Well, that is totally wrong, memang salah dari segi akidah.. nauzubillah.. and that parent yang cakap macam tu pun perlu beristighfar...

The God for everyone in the universe, is the same, Almighty Allah. Tidak ada istilah Tuhan saya, Tuhan awak. Semuanya datang dari Allah, semuanya Allah jadikan, yang satu hanya Allah. And if we say that, that means, we recognize the god that those non muslim serve to. Kita meniyakan tuhan mereka itu, atau mengakuinya sedangkan dalam shahadah, kita menagakui Allah itu satu.

Jadi, sekiranya anak anda ada bertanya soalan sperti di atas, jawapan yang sepatutnya ialah: "Mereka sedang sembahyang, tapi dengan cara yang salah, di tempat yang salah. Cara yang betul ialah seperti yang di ajarkan oleh nabi kepada kita".

Insyallah, semoga keluarga kita terpelihara sebagai muslim yang beriman.
