should doctors help to implement hudud?


for most of the time, i would have my stubborn opinion on every topics or issues. i would create imaginary conversations and paragraphs in my head. from politics to… whatever

but this one issue, i really have no idea what to think, or how to think. there's a fine line between religion and professionalism. i do not know what i should think.

nobody among us muslims would ever dare to deny hudud. well, i realized that most of us would prefer to keep our mouth shut regarding the implementation of hudud. hudud, irrefutably, should be realized. but how are we going to realize it? it is a problem because most of us have a very shallow idea about hudud. we do not know it as a whole, only the surface, or maybe less than that. i'm sure the thoughts of limbs amputation, caning, stoning and whatnot came to mind when picturing hudud. that does no fair to hudud.

lets put that aside. my major concern is whether doctors should be involved in implementing hudud. i am not taking sides. i dont even know what is right and what is wrong. should they? or shouldnt they? someone please enlighten me. i appreciate opinions from those who maintain their neutrality instead of some religious zealots or liberalist. i would want to hear fair explanation.






i love beaches. who doesnt?

it is made as a sign from Him. the creation is vast, endless, intricate and mysterious in a way that we never know. nevertheless, it is a very beautiful creation. the sound of the waves as they hit the pure white sand simply becomes a melody that is pleasing to the ear, somehow it has the power to calm even the most disturbed mind. the homogenous color of blue green it emits is pleasing to the eye, it also adds to the serenity. oh, wait until you see the sun sets on the horizon, nobody can take their eyes off the view. the yellow orange hue it gives off, plus when the gentle breeze strokes our face.. tell me how can one not love this?

i always find it magical.

yet, underneath that beauty, we can never underestimate the power they held, and i think fishermen would agree with me. in the middle of the ocean, there's hardly calmness. the waves become foe, no longer gentle and pleasing. underneath, it seems bottomless. an abyss. nobody can predict the depth of the sea. comparing my dimension to the deep sea, that's just irrelevant. metaphorically i would be microscopic compared to the ocean. the ocean is very very big. word does no justice to picture the vastness of the ocean.

and that's just one simple creation of my great god, Allah. i just can't imagine how powerful the Creator is. He is of course, greater than His creations. servant? now it feels that i am less than that. how can an ordinary person like me be a servant to the great god Allah. i am less than that.

nevertheless, my lust for the world denies the fact that i am just a servant. i am beguiled by the world, ignoring the fact that i will eventually return to Him and live in the hereafter permanently. Ya Allah, forgive me again.. and again..
