The following is the full text of the presidential address delivered by Tuan Guru Abdul Hadi Awang at the opening of the 57th PAS Muktamar, June 3, 2011.
Developing a Benevolent Nation
PAS has chosen the democratic path because we act according to muwajahah silmiyyah (peaceful opposition), whether we win and form government, or become Opposition or just carry out open protest wherever such space is available. In order to implement this, the right approach is necessary in order to re-orient Malay society which has been deviated onto the path of narrow racialism and removed from the true path of Islam.
The Companions asked: “What do you command us to do?”
The Prophet said: “Pledge loyalty to the first among them, and those following him. Give them what is due. Verily Allah will ask of them over what had been given them”
One who is guilty will not just face punishment on earth, but will also face retribution in the grave and in the afterlife if the person does not seek Allah’s forgiveness and is freed by the court. Islam proves that there is peace when there is justice, not by way of frightening the people through oppressive laws.
Women are the ones who provide education to the family. They produce a credible ummah from a righteous family. We are witnessing how there is a mental onslaught on the family as a flood that is impossible to stop. It is timely that the Muslimah partake in the fardu ‘ain jihad which has been mentioned in the fiqh books because the dangers posed by this attack on the minds is much worse upon society.
