Kota Kinabalu: The State Fatwa Committee has banned 13 deviant groups, including Syiah, in Sabah for propagating teachings that are not in accordance to Islamic ways and "Syarak".

Assistant Minister in the Chief Minister's Department, Datuk Arifin Arif said the banned groups are :
01- Qadiani,
02- Nasrul Haq,
03- teachings of Haji Uyut bin Utun,
04- Al-Arqam,
05- Rufaqa group,
06- Bahai
07- Kumpulan Berzikir of Hasan Anak Rimau teaching,
08- Kumpulan Awang Rezki Besiri Muhammad,
09- Azhar Wahab teaching,
10- Tariqah Hasaniah,
11- Tal Tujuh,
12- Islam Jemaah,
13- Tariqat Nasyabandiah Al- Aliyyah Syeikh Nazim Al-Haggani
14- Syiah

"The government always monitors not only those groups that have been banned but doubtful teachings of other groups.

"Sabah Islamic Affairs Department (Jheains), Home Ministry, Malaysia Islamic Development Department (Jakim) and other local authorities are always working together in ensuring the faith of Muslims is not influenced by deviant teachings," he said.

Arifin was replying to Bongawan Assemblyman Mohamad bin Alamin during question time at the State Assembly.

He said they are currently monitoring the deviant activities of 'Harun Mat Saat Group' or known as 'Tuhan Harun' in connection with cheating through collecting donations for orphanages which has yet to be detected, so far.

In regards to Syiah teachings, Arifin said they found out that several people are believed linked to the Syiah, based on their investigation, although no Muslims have admitted to be Syiah followers.

"Those Muslims found to be involved in deviant teachings can be charged under Section 52 of the Syariah Criminal Offence Enactment No.3 1995 with a maximum fine of RM5,000 or a jail up to three years' or both upon, conviction," he said.

To ensure the Muslims are not influenced by deviant groups especially Syiah, Arifin said the Government through Jheains, State Mufti Office, Jakim and Home Ministry will organise seminars on the threat of deviant groups.

Whatever you wish that others would do to you, do so to them

Do as you desire goodness for yourself as you cannot expect tasty fruits if you sow thorny trees


JUDAISM
What is hateful to you, do not do to your neighbor - that is the basic law, all the rest is commentary

If your eyes be turned towards justice choose for your neighbor that which you would choose for yourself
