A police lance corporal believed to be hiding from a khalwat raid died after he fell from the third floor of a hotel here yesterday.
It is believed that the 33-year-old policeman had climbed out of the window of the hotel room when the state Religious Affairs Department enforcement officers knocked on the door at 2am.

Another case of death because fleeing from khalwat. This is the second time I write in my blog about this kind of story. Before this it involved a student, (u can read it by clicking here) but this time, it involved a policemen.
Honestly I feel sad for them. Instead of die in Iman, they died in this terrible way. Not that I want to say anything bad to them. This is just a reminder for me, and to all my dear readers to so that we can learn to not doing the same mistake.
But that’s not my real point, my real point here is about few comments that I read regarding this case that bothering me. These few comments are;
I don't understand why Islam need to have religious department to monitor the behaviour of Muslims like one cannot do this, must wear this way and not that way, this can eat and that cannot eat and so on. I gave up my try in learning more about Islamic teaching, not because of Islam itself, but the conduct of these Islamic authorities. My condolence to the family of this policeman. He is just unfortunate for being born a Muslim. Some of you Muslims may criticise me by accusing me talking bad about Islam, but I just can't being emotional to know a fellow human being died that way. I gave up, it is ridiculous.
Wonderful! This is how Islam ought to show its face. I'm sure all right-thinking Muslims will be happy to know that someone died in the name of religion.
Many comments that I read was condemning Islam. People keep insulting Islam for being too strict and busy body to interfere in people’s life such as stop the people from commit adultery. And I’m sure, the one who keep condemning Islam must be the non-muslims.
U guys know nothing about Islam, so stop judging and condemning Islam.
As a muslim myself, I feel it’s my duty to clear these bad perception towards Islam, and bring the understanding to these few idiots who never understand Islam but still want to judge this religion with their ignorance.
"Nor come nigh to adultery for it is a shameful (deed) and an evil, opening the road (to other evils)." [Qur'an 17:32]
Islam does not simply forbid adultery for no reason. Same goes with gambling, eating pig, drinking and ect. Islam have all the reason why they forbid the Muslims from doing these immoral stuff.
Regarding to this case of adultery, here are few reasons why Islam forbids it.
Why Islam forbid adultery :
- To protect women
- Damage upon family genealogy
- Causes family break-ups
- Total moral breakdown
- Avoiding the risk of infection with AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases
- Disintegration ties that bind family together
- Unwanted baby is abandon and killed
- Increase the prostitution and rape problems
These were among the reason why Islam forbids adultery. Do we want these all problem above happen in our country? Do we want to live in the generation where people can commit intercourse freely? Do we want our children to have sex before marriage?
We don’t want it.
So this is the beauty of Islam. Islam wants the best not just for Muslims, but for all the society, including difference religion and races. Islam is taking care of everybody. Islam is perfect if u get to know it and apply the teaching in ur daily lives. Islam is a beauty, perfect, peace and fair religion.
Anas bin Malik (radhiallâhu anhu) narrated that the Prophet (sallallâhu ‘alayhi wasallam) said, "Make things easy for the people, and do not make it difficult for them, and make them calm (with glad tidings) and do not repulse (them).” (Bukhâri,8/146)
And Islam's general approach in forbidding any action is not limited to its verbal condemnation, but always entails closing the doors that may lead to committing it. For this reason, Islam forbids men and women meeting alone privately or in seclusion. It does not allow wanton mixing of the sexes, forbids lecherous gazing at the opposite sex, looking at those parts or other people's bodies which Islam requires to remain covered in public, and the excessive display of physical beauty and adornment.
And stop saying that only Islam disallow adultery. Adultery is strictly forbidden by Christianity as well, as both the Old and New Testaments make absolutely clear.
The seventh commandment given to Moses states: "You shall not commit adulte~y", while the Old Testament says, "He who commits adultery has no sense,'' (Proverbs:32). In the Book of Matthew, Jesus is quoted as saying, "But I say to you that everyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart" (Matthew: 5, 28).
So for those who condemning Islam for not being open minded, u are the one who are close minded and idiot. It does not take a rocket scientist to know that unlawful sex will someday bring the bad effect and damage in the society. That’s why Islam forbids it at the first place.
Remember, whatever happened, like in this death policemen case, don’t blame the religion, don’t insult the religion, but blame the devotee coz not applying the religion’s teaching.
ISLAM IS PERFECT, BUT MUSLIMS ARE NOT.
Think about it.
