Sistem pendidikan negara bukan sekular- Dr Sidek

Pakar pendidikan Universiti Islam Antarabangsa Malaysia (UIAM), Profesor Dr Sidek Baba menafikan dakwaan bahawa sistem pendidikan negara ini masih berkiblatkan sistem Barat dan berbentuk sekular.

Sebaliknya, ideologi Islam berteraskan konsep masyarakat berbilang kaum dijadikan panduan untuk menghasilkan sistem pendidikan yang lebih efektif, katanya.

Justeru Sidek menyifatkan suara sumbang yang mendakwa Malaysia mengamalkan sistem pendidikan sekular sebenarnya tidak memahami konsep pendidikan serta sistem sosial negara.

"Salah faham, salah konsep, salah mengerti… Orang selalu mengerti sistem pendidikan Malaysia masih lagi sekular. Itu tidak betul. Sudah banyak yang berubah," katanya kepada Antarapos.

Bekas Timbalan Rektor UIAM ini berpendapat, pendekatan yang diambil kerajaan lebih bijaksana kerana turut tidak menafikan hak pendidikan serta kemajuan masyarakat Cina dan India.

"Ini adalah lebih bijaksana kerana sifat Malaysia ini berbilang kaum, majmuk. Walaupun latar sejarah budaya di Malaysia ini diwarnai latar orang Melayu.

"Bahasa Melayu, orang Islam, tetapi (tetap) kena ambil pertimbangan orang bukan Islam," katanya sambil menambah pendidikan agama tradisional seperti sistem sekolah pondok terus dibenarkan bercambah.

Sidek juga menjelaskan bahawa Malaysia tidak pernah menolak kewujudan pusat-pusat pengajian Islam ini tetapi melakukan transformasi pendidikan berteraskan Islam.

"Contohnya Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan Agama. Berpuluh-puluh (sekolah dibangunkan). Ko-kurikulum yang tidak hanya bersifat diniyah (agama). Ada Quran, Hadis dan dalam pada masa yang sama ada Tasawwur, Sains, Fizik, Kimia dan produknya luar biasa. Produk dari UIAM juga (dapat membuktikan).

"Kita juga ada Lembaga Pendidikan Islam dan Jabatan Agama Islam Negeri di seluruh ceruk rantau, bajetnya juga semakin besar.

"Jikalau kita ingin dikatakan pendidikan di Malaysia ini sekular secara keseluruhan, tidak benar. Sudah banyak perubahan sejak merdeka," jelas beliau lagi.

Sidek akhirnya yakin sistem pendidikan yang menerapkan kedua-dua aspek duniawi dan ukhrawi bakal menghasilkan pemikir serta tamadun Islam yang ulung dalam bidang masing-masing seiring dengan kemajuan sains dan teknologi.

Sekularisme melahirkan manusia yang rosak

Mengapa ramai manusia yang mengaku Islam tetapi tidak terdidik dengan Islam? Jawapannya, kerana sistem yang mendidiknya pada hari bukanlah sistem Islam! Sistem yang diamalkan pada hari ini dipenuhi dengan kebebasan dari segi tingkah laku di mana hubungan lelaki dan perempuan dibiarkan sebebas-bebasnya. Malah saban hari media cetak dan elektronik mengiklankan dan menggalakkan gaya hidup ala binatang seperti ini.

Sistem pendidikan yang ada tidak diteraskan kepada aqidah Islam yang natijahnya melahirkan individu yang tidak memiliki syakhsiah Islam dan gagal memahami serta menyedari bahawasanya berzina itu haram dan pembuangan bayi boleh dianggap membunuh dan berdosa besar di sisi syarak. Bayangkanlah di peringkat sekolah lagi telah terjadi kes kehamilan (perzinaan) dan berakhir dengan pembunuhan yang penuh tragis seperti ini. Inilah realiti kehidupan di dalam sebuah negara sekular yang memisahkan agama dari kehidupan.

Inilah antara bukti kegagalan sistem sekular yang diterapkan oleh pemerintah yang ada. Inilah buah tangan yang dihadiahkan oleh penjajah berupa sistem kufur yang menafikan agama sebagai pengatur hidup. Ternyata pelbagai usaha serta kempen yang dianjurkan oleh pemerintah sebagai penyelesaian kepada masalah pembuangan bayi seperti kempen ‘Kami prihatin,’ Sekolah Harapan, baby hatch dan yang terkini Pendidikan Seks, kesemuanya merupakan penyelesaian yang cukup lemah dan sia-sia.

Islam telah menetapkan bahawa hubungan kelamin yang sah di sisi syarak adalah hubungan yang dijalin melalui ikatan pernikahan. Dengan ikatan halal inilah pasangan itu telah sah menjadi suami isteri dan seterusnya dari mereka akan lahirlah zuriat umat manusia.

Islam juga telah menetapkan sekiranya berlaku perzinaan, maka pelakunya wajib dihukum rejam (bagi pasangan yang sudah berkahwin) ataupun sebat 100 kali (bagi pasangan yang belum berkahwin) sepertimana Firman Allah SWT:
“Perempuan yang berzina dan lelaki yang berzina, maka sebatlah tiap-tiap seorang dari keduanya dengan seratus kali sebatan dan janganlah belas kasihan kepada keduanya mencegah kamu untuk (menjalankan) agama Allah, jika kamu beriman kepada Allah dan hari akhirat, dan hendaklah (perlaksanaan) hukuman mereka disaksikan oleh sekumpulan dari orang-orang yang beriman” [TMQ An-Nur (24):2]

Maka untuk menyelesaikan masalah manusia secara menyeluruh, tidak ada cara lain melainkan kembali kepada Islam dengan menerapkan syariat dalam kehidupan individu, masyarakat dan Negara. Allah telah menurunkan sistem kehidupan yang sempurna untuk manusia seperti sistem pendidikan, ekonomi, pergaulan, uqubat dan sebagainya. Sesungguhnya hanya dengan sistem Islam sahajalah yang mampu menyelesaikan masalah pembuangan bayi serta seribu satu macam masalah yang lainnya. Inilah sistem yang mampu mengatur kehidupan manusia kerana ianya dicipta oleh Pencipta sekalian makhluk iaitu Allah SWT.

Sebagai individu, marilah sama-sama berusaha untuk menanamkan ketaqwaan dalam diri kita. Sebagai anggota masyarakat, menjadi kewajipan kita untuk mengajak kepada perkara yang makruf dan mencegah dari segala kemungkaran. Kepada pihak pemerintah, wajib ke atas kamu menerapkan sistem Islam dan berdosa besarlah pemerintah yang tidak berhukum dengan apa yang Allah turunkan!

Kerajaan sekular tidak akan berjaya mencegah maksiat kalau tidak dengan cara Islam LAM

 

Isu orang Islam meminum arak bukanlah sesuatu yang pelik dan asing dalam sistem sekular, termasuklah di Malaysia. Begitu juga jika didapati orang-orang Islam masuk ke tempat-tempat perjudian seperti TOTO dan Magnum, ia bukanlah perkara luar biasa dalam kamus sistem sekular. Cuma kadang-kadang, media massa memilih berita mengenai isu seperti ini demi populariti.

Sebagai seorang yang beriman, kita janganlah memandang isu orang Islam minum arak, sekadar sesuatu untuk dibaca semata-mata. Namun, ia haruslah dilihat dalam perspektif hukum syariat dalam memandangnya sebagai sebuah permasalahan yang serius.

Hukuman bagi orang yang meminum arak di dalam Islam adalah sebatan sebanyak 40 atau 80 kali, yang dilakukan oleh Khalifah tanpa menambah atau menguranginya. Membincangkan isu sebatan syariah di dalam sistem sekular adalah ibarat menyuruh kambing berkokok. Ini adalah kerana, sistem sekular akan senantiasa membatasi segala perlaksanaan syariah yang bertentangan dengan perlembagaan sekular. Bahkan, sebatan yang dianggap ‘syarie’ dalam Mahkamah Syariah (sebanyak 6 sebatan) adalah jelas bertentangan dengan syariah Islam itu sendiri.

Ramai yang memandang bahawa meminum arak itu adalah suatu perbuatan yang keji dan menjijikkan. Namun begitu, jarang sekali kita mendengar dari kalangan penguasa dan penguatkuasa undang-undang yang mengeji tempat-tempat maksiat yang dibiarkan terus beroperasi tanpa larangan. Bahkan, tempat-tempat maksiat ini berkembang pesat dengan banyaknya. Kekuasaan berganti tangan, di beberapa buah negeri setelah pilihanraya, namun masih belum kelihatan sebarang perubahan yang benar-benar memanifestasikan kemuliaan di sisi syariat Islam. Lambakan tempat-tempat maksiat dan program-program yang bersifat hedonisme tetap sahaja berterusan.

Hakikatnya, punca sebenar permasalahan ini adalah penerapan sistem thagut (sistem kufur) dalam kehidupan manusia. Segala tempat-tempat maksiat dibiarkan begitu sahaja kerana kewujudannya mendatangkan keuntungan ekonomi yang besar.Cukai terhadap kilang-kilang arak, tempat-tempat perjudian dan tempat-tempat hiburan dianggap perlu bagi ‘pembangunan’ negara.

Hakikatnya, apa yang berlaku adalah jelas haram di sisi Islam. Tanpa penerapan Islam yang syumul, maksiat ini akan terus berleluasa.

Secularism

Secularism today, the popular practice of the world`s population, has also become a polemic and subject of heated debate between the educated, the academicians and especially so among politicians.

In fact,they accuse on another. “They are a secular group”. “They have a secular mind”. “Their belief is still influenced by secularism”

Those accused would counter accuse their accusers of also having secular minds or of being influenced by secularism. They bring forth arguments and reasons complete with lengthy theories, debating using bombastic words and terms beyond comprehension of any layman.
Those with the knowledge and understanding of secularism, especially the intellectuals, when debating the topic of secularism, still fail to explain what secularism means. Their explanations remain hazy and ambiguous even with extensive and lengthy disccussions.

There are instances when people who bring forth lengthy arguments and analysis on the meaning of secularism and who label other people as being secular, are themselves clearly seen to be secular, directly or indirectly, whether they realize it or not.

In order to understand secularism or non-secularism, it is not sufficient to rely solely on the mind or merely to revert to assumptions. To understand the meaning of secularism or non-secularism, we have to accept that it has a lot to do with how much we understand Islam itself. To confirm whether a person or a group is secular or otherwise is decided by the teachings of Islam or the Quran and Hadith (sayings of the Prophet). Allah Taala Himself makes the decision.The human mind does not have the privilege to define its meaning.

No matter how brilliant one is, one cannot freely on one`s own accord analyze this matter without first referring to what is required by Islam or by the Quran and the Sunnah (Hadith).

I, as a Muslim, when faced with this complex situation, and when faced with discussions, debates and polemics on this issue, also feel responsible and called upon to discuss this topic. Although I am not an academician nor an ulama` based on the current meaning of the terms, or based on the belief of certain people that knowledge must come with qualifications or degrees, which I do not possess, whether in academic or religious disciplines, it is still not wrong for me to get involved in debating and discussing this topic or issue. Who knows, although I am an inconspicuous man, I may be able to bring forth the truth on this question of secularism.

Even if the intellects or ulamas cannot accept my viewpoint merely because of my standing and I too do not regard myself an expert, but it is also possible that there are people of my standing or of lesser standing than I who can accept it. And owing to the fact that I am not an intellect, surely my analysis will not contain terminologies that are too philosophical and surely the layman can easily understand me.

Hopefully, I am assisted and guided by Allah Taala in writing this analysis and hopefully He simplifies the explanation so that all groups of people within the society can comprehend it.

The Meaning of Secular or Secularism
I do not have to debate or expound on the meaning of the word “secular” from the historical point of view or who was the first personality to utter the word, or in what period and why this term came about as is not important to us.

But what important to us as a principle, (so that we can be guided and are not trapped by secular ideology or secularism,) is the meaning of secularism itself from the Islamic viewpoint. As such, philosophical debates and references to history and personalities are not necessary to be addressed here, for fear that this article will become too lengthy. So we take only what is necessary for us to use as a guide. Hopefully, in our lives, no matter in what field we work and strive, we will not be trapped or be involved in the path of secularism.

Now, let us analyze secularism from the Islamic viewpoint. Secularism, in Islam, is to carry out the activities of life in this world whether in the fields of economy, politics, education, administration, culture, communications and so on in complete separation from religion or without any connection whatsoever with the Hereafter; in other words, secularism is a concept that touches purely on worldly matters. It does not have any connection with the Hereafter.

Secularism means life on earth will end on earth. If there is profit made, it will only be in this world. If there is loss suffered, it will also be only in this world. If a person is poor, it will only be in this world and if a person is rich, it will also only be in this world. It will not be questioned in the Hereafter. Rewards for good and bad deeds are irrelevant for life exists only in this world and it does not go beyond that.

In secularism, the shariah (rule of Allah) is not taken into account. In fact, the shariah has no place in life. In secularism, God does not involve Himself in the lives of man. As such, man can do anything he likes. What is important is profit. What is required is development and progress. The important thing is to gain victory and success no matter how, even if the prohibited (haram) have to be made permissible (halal). Time should not be wasted on deciding between the permissible and the prohibited. The dos and don`ts too are not considered.

In secularism, the world is not a bridge to the Hereafter or a farm for the Hereafter. Whatever happens in this world will end in this world. In secularism, there is no reward for good or bad deeds. There is no life in the Hereafter or there is no concern for life in the Hereafter. If there is at all any belief in the Hereafter, it is not taken seriously as though it is not there or it needs to be forgotten. In fact, some secularists dislike the Hereafter. When we mention the “Hereafter”, they make a wry face to show disgust. Whoever mentions the Hereafter is considered old-fashioned, backward and non-progressive.

Secular Groups
After analyzing and debating the meaning of secularism, we now know that those who are secular belong to many groups. They can be divided into many categories. Among them are as follows:

1. The Pure Secularists
The group who do not believe in the existence of God or the Hereafter and who believe that religion is man-made and is opiate to the masses. They believe the universe came to exist naturally and on its own accord. Those who are of this belief are communists, atheists or “free thinkers”. These are the pure secularists.

2. The Secularists Who Have Been Led Astray
This group comprises of infidels who believe in God, the Hereafter and religion but who do not know God. Their belief of the Hereafter is not accurate. They have been led astray in religion. God is not involved in their worldly lives and their lives are totally separated from religion. These are secularists who have been led astray.

3. Muslim Secularists who Believe in the Existence of God.
These are Muslims who believe in the existence and unity of God and their knowledge of God is accurate. They also accurately believe in the Hereafter. Only, their religion is restricted merely to acts of devotions. Due to ignorance, all matters of life like economy, politics, education, the struggle and so on are separated from Islam. The Islamic shariah has no place in their lives except only in acts of devotions. Other than in devotions, they can accept any ideology or ism or whatever is formulated by the human mind. These are secularists because they are unbecoming (fasik).

4. Secularists Due to Being Tyranous (Zalim)
These are Muslims who believe as above but are also committed to the fact that Islam is a complete way of life. They believe that Islam is a religion for all aspects of life. Islam is a religion of devotion, a religion of politics, a religion of administration, a religion of economy, and a religion of education. But perhaps out of fear of a certain group of people or because they are not prepared to face any serious consequences or due to some personal interests or out of fear or shame that they will be branded as old-fashioned, they forgo the shariah except in acts of devotion. In other aspects of life, the shariah does not become the rule and discipline. These people become secularists because they are tyrants (zalim) for not placing the truth in its proper place or for misplacing the truth.

5. Secularists Who Inadvertently Change Their Intention
Muslims who carry out acts of devotion, the struggle, economy, politics, communications and so on according to the shariah, but not because of Allah Taala as it formally was. Instead, they do it now out of pride and self-conceit and to gain fame, glamour, rank, or money, whether they realize it or not. Because of this, the reward for their good deeds do not reach the Hereafter. These people become secularists because they inadvertently change their intentions.

6. Secularists Due to Secular Elements or Who Attach Too Much Importance to the World
This group is more refined than the groups above. These people do everything according to the shariah. But because they attach too much importance to life in the world compared to life in the Hereafter to the extent that they are not prepared to pay the tithes and they become miserly. They do not like to do good and they do not like to help other people. They do not like to give alms. They prefer only to accumulate their wealth and they become greedy. These people become secularists because they do things that contain secular elements or things that are secular in nature or they attach too much importance to the world.

That, briefly, is the meaning of secularism from the Islamic viewpoint that I understand. So, secularism gives importance to the worldly. Although some secularists believe in the Hereafter, they do not take it seriously or they purposely forget it and they do not take any heed. This is because their hearts cling and are tied to life in this world. It is even worse if they do not believe in the Hereafter at all. Their lives will only be solely for the world. It is also even worse if they are absolutely worldly oriented or they are truly pure secularists.

So we see at this end of time, the majority of the world population are secular, whether they believe that this life will end here on earth and there is no Hereafter or whether they still believe in the Hereafter but at heart and by attitude, they put more importance to life on earth.

It is here that a lot of Muslims have fallen into secularism. Even if they do not believe in pure secularism, at least the spray of secularism has attacked Muslims and this is the secret why Muslims cannot unite. The hearts of Muslims have been destroyed by this spray of secularism.
This is my view and opinion. If there is any truth in it, surely it is from Allah Taala , the All Knowing. If there are mistakes and errors, they are due solely to my own weakness and shortcomings, being one who do not have high education.
