National Fatwa Council to make a ruling on yoga

GEORGE TOWN: The National Fatwa Council will soon come out with a ruling on yoga exercise.
The Islamic Development Department’s deputy director-general (operations) Othman Mustapha said the council’s chairman, Prof Datuk Dr Abdul Shukor Husin, would make the announcement.


Othman told reporters this after opening the two-day seminar on Islamic Jurisprudence and Eternal Islamic Thinking at Universiti Sains Malaysia here yesterday.


On Tuesday, lecturer Prof Zakaria Stapa of Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia’s Islamic Studies Centre advised Muslims who have taken up yoga to stop practising it as it could deviate from their belief. – Bernama

Apa kena mengenanye exercise dgn faith/belief?

Now, do you remember our lecturer the popular ex judge of the Sessions Courts? She used to say, kalau tak tau diam, jangan tunjuk kita bodoh, nanti orang ketawakan kita.....

Buat malu je la...

sebab tu la umat islam disuruh menimba pengetahuan. ini lagi tinggi level, lagi singkat otak.

sometimes kita sendiri yang sabotage our religion. macam la takde issue lain yang they can focus on... as if rakyat kita ni so stupid.

Ms. B - Selalu sgt pindah rumah ni :) Ive never seen real snow before. Sad kan?

gk - Hmm..dont give them any ideas. As it is we are not supposed to wish our non-muslim friends Happy Deepavali or Merry Christmas

mas - Tak tahulah dik oiii...ader jer benda nak dijadikan isu

lynn - Tulah pasal...kalau buat yoga and u chant sekali tu maybe lah kot menyimpang but kalau just buat the exercise i dont see any harm in it...sigh...Puan Naimah was right. Eh, I that's her name right?

eyeda - Ni pasal Prof tu jealous tengok org boleh bend sana sini la kot..hehehe

TC - Right on! Cubalah cari jalan how to memajukan umat Islam and find ways how to help org2 islam yang miskin tu..kan lagi elok!
