Nothing Good Ever Comes of Hatred

Once ago I wrote in RoketKini, quoting my favourite author, Mitch Albom in his book, Have A Little Faith on how empathy, his rabbi towards an Arabian family in Israel-Palestine has happened in the picture he kept for decades.

He says they are families, but enemies.

This is the beauty paragon of how humane and benevolent are the human being itself, reminiscent us on what GOD portray in the Quran,
“O men! Behold, We have created you all out of a male and a female, and have made you into nations and tribes, so that you might come to know one another, Verily, the noblest of you in the sight of God is one who is most deeply conscious of Him. Behold, God is all-knowing, all-aware.” 
Al-Hujurat 49:13
Love, tenderness and compassion constituted by GOD in every single man born in the world, for the purpose of devouring not just to thyself but also others around them. The love, tenderness, and compassion are a zeal of humanity, of kindness, of empathy, of altruism, of amity.

Humanity is the answer to all the society's problems. Just recalled anything crosses your mind — the clash of riches and poor, of the West and East, of Black and White, of Muslim and Christian, of Palestine and Israeli, of straights and gays, and here, of Malay and non-Malay, or specifically, of so-called Malay Muslims and Chinese communities.

Humanity needs the human response from their very heart. GOD grants us humanity as per se for us to seek love and compassion with one and another. This is what inculcating in me, taught by my parent and teachers.

Please enlighten me, my dear ISMA and alliances, for several of my misunderstanding of humans and humanity.

To people who always thought, they are superior to others. Of people who always thought, they are pious than others.

Of people who always thought, they are privileged than others. Of people who always thought, they are holier than others are. Of humans who always thought the GOD guaranteed them a free ticket to heaven.

I want to know if we ever had asked GOD to born as a White instead of Black.

If we ever had asked GOD to born as gay instead of straight as an arrow.

If we ever had asked GOD to born as Malay instead of Chinese.

I knew myself never asked GOD those questions.

I want to further the question of my brother Muhammad Ooi to ISMA, what is good for issuing all those dangerous statements and spreading hatred to Malaysians?

To live and to love, was what human being created of.
