Farm dogs maul Irish tourist to death in Malaysia – Yahoo! Malaysia News

Location of Lahad Datu

Image via Wikipedia

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia – Two dogs have mauled an Irish tourist to death at an organic farm in northern Malaysia, a police official said Monday.

The man died on the spot Sunday after being attacked by the two dogs at the farm on the northern island of Penang, local police officer Lai Fah Hin said. The dogs tore gashes in his face and body.

Lai could not immediately give more details. Reports identified the dead man as Maurice Sullivan, aged 50. He was reportedly staying at the farm with his Polish companion to take photos.

Local media quoted the farm owner as saying he would hand over the dogs, which he reared to protect the farm from wild boars and pythons, to the veterinary department. It was unclear what caused them to attack Sullivan.

State veterinary department director Wan Mohamad Kamil Wan Nik said his officers would take the dogs and monitor them for 10 days for rabies before deciding what to do with them. He said they were mixed-breed dogs, common in Malaysia. This was the first such fatal attack in the state, he said.

This really very frightening to hear about this news. While in Matamba Estate in Lahad Datu Sabah, estate workers most of them have pet dogs. For what purpose they reared those animals not only put the residents in danger, but the dogs scattering their mist or dung every where even in front of the house. Persons who reared dogs in this area didn’t concern about other people interests. In Islam to rear dogs with out any possible purposes, like guarding their lands or farm is prohibited. A state laborer merely has no reasons to pets dogs, because they are not living in their own land. We are living as a estate workers and there are security authority in this area to guard the safety of of the residents, houses and even their wealth if have any. Here are some source of facts exemption of keeping dogs in ones house.

Prohibition on keeping dogs except those exempted by sharee’ah

What is the ruling on raising dogs in the house?.

Praise be to Allaah.

Firstly:

It is not permissible for a Muslim to keep a dog, unless he needs this dog for hunting, guarding livestock or guarding crops.

Al-Bukhaari (2145) narrated that Abu Hurayrah (may Allaah be pleased with him) said: The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Whoever keeps a dog, a qiraat from his good deeds will be deducted every day, except a dog for farming or herding livestock.”

Muslim (2978) narrated from Abu Hurayrah (may Allaah be pleased with him) that the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Whoever keeps a dog that is not a dog for hunting, herding livestock or farming, two qiraats will be deducted from his reward each day.”

Muslim (2943) narrated from ‘Abd-Allaah ibn ‘Umar (may Allaah be pleased with him) that the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Whoever keeps a dog, except a dog for herding livestock or a dog for hunting, a qiraat will be deducted from his good deeds each day.” ‘Abd-Allaah said: Abu Hurayrah said: Or a dog for farming.

Ibn ‘Abd al-Barr said: This hadeeth shows that it is permissible to keep a dog for hunting and herding livestock, and also for farming.

Ibn Maajah (3640) narrated from ‘Ali ibn Abi Taalib (may Allaah be pleased with him) that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “The angels do not enter a house in which there is a dog or an image.” Classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh Ibn Maajah.

These ahaadeeth indicate that it is haraam to keep a dog, except for those which were exempted by the Messenger (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him).

The scholars differed as to how to reconcile between the reports which speak of one qiraat being deducted and those which speak of two qiraats being deducted.

It was said that two qiraats will be deducted if the dog is more harmful and one qiraat will be deducted if it is less so.

And it was said that that at first the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said that one qiraat would be deducted, then the punishment was increased after that, so he said that two qiraats would be deducted in order to put people off from keeping dogs even more.

The qiraat is an amount that is known to Allaah, may He be exalted, and what is meant is that some of the reward for a person’s good deeds will be deducted.

See Sharh Muslim by al-Nawawi, 10/342; Fath al-Baari, 5/9

Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen said in Sharh Riyaadh al-Saaliheen, 4/241:

With regard to keeping dogs, this is haraam and is in fact a major sin, because the one who keeps a dog, except those for which an exception has been made, will have two qiraats deducted from his reward every day.

It is by the wisdom of Allaah that like calls to like and evil calls to evil. It is said that the kaafirs, Jews, Christians and communists in the east and the west all keep dogs, Allaah forbid. Each one takes his dog with him and cleans it every day with soap and other cleansing agents. But even if he were to clean it with the water of all the seas in the world and all the soap in the world, it would never become pure! Because its impurity is inherent, and inherent impurity cannot be cleansed except by destroying it and erasing it altogether.

But this is by the wisdom of Allaah, and the wisdom of Allaah is that like calls to like and evil calls to Shaytaan because this kufr of theirs is by the inspiration of the Shaytaan and the command of the Shaytaan, for the Shaytaan enjoins evil, immorality, kufr and misguidance. So they are slaves to the Shaytaan and to their whims and desires, and they are also evil and love vile things. We ask Allaah to guide us and them. End quote.

Secondly:

Is it permissible to keep dogs to guard houses?

Answer:

The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) made only three exceptions to the prohibition on keeping dogs: hunting, guarding livestock and guarding crops.

Some scholars are of the view that it is not permissible to keep a dog for any reason other than these three. Others are of the view that it is permissible to draw analogies between these three and similar or more likely cases, such as guarding houses, because if it is permissible to keep dogs to guard livestock and crops, it is more appropriate that it should be permissible to keep dogs to guard houses.

Al-Nawawi said in Sharh Muslim (10/340):

Is it permissible to keep a dog to guard houses, alleys and the like? There are two points of view. The first is that it is not permissible, because of the apparent meaning of the ahaadeeth, which clearly state that keeping dogs is forbidden except for farming, hunting and herding. The more correct view is that it is permissible, by analogy with those three cases, knowing that the reason that is understood from the ahaadeeth is necessity. End quote.

The view that was classed as saheeh by al-Nawawi (may Allaah have mercy on him), that keeping a dog to guard the house is permissible, was also classed as saheeh by Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen (may Allaah have mercy on him) in Sharh Saheeh Muslim. He said:

The correct view is that it is permissible to keep a dog to guard the house, because if it is permissible to keep a dog in order to benefit from it, as in the case of hunting, it is more appropriate that one be allowed to keep a dog in order to ward off harm and protect oneself.

May I beg your pardon if some readers found something that touch their emotions. The above hadeeth is intended only for the muslims,nothing more nothing less.

Fortunately in my area, the estate manager had sent notice to residents who keep dogs. That their dogs will be eliminated. The estate manager, who is also the Officer of OSHA in this estate will order someone to kill the dogs if the owners did not follow their order to tie on their dogs.

Other points on rearing dogs on muslems society.

Dogs have always been regarded as a taboo in Malay or most Moslem societies in general. But in modern societies or city-lives all around the globe, where dog rearing is now a trend rather than just meant for a purpose to enhance human lives, dog rearing may still be regarded as a taboo in Malay/Moslem societies despite the exposure to “Western ways of living”. But dogs were mentioned several times in the Holy Quran, the holy book of all Moslems despite political differences between the Sunnis & Shias. However, no mention of dog-rearing as being a taboo, or sinful, none of that is reflected in the holy book. Nonetheless, with hadiths or sunnah (sayings and living habits of Muhammad, the last prophet of Islam: The Sunnah of Muhammad includes his specific words, habits, practices, and silent approvals. It is significant to the spirituality of Islam because it addresses ways of life dealing with friends, family, and government ), some seem to tolerate canines, while some regard it as unclean animals and have to be avoided entirely. Though they may be different modes of understanding the actual importance of such hadiths or sunnahs, nonetheless, canine rearing has been in practice in the Middle East for thousands of years. The athletic-looking, saluki or pronounced “slughi”, is one of the oriental sight-hound breeds that are known to be the oldest domesticated canine known. They are still being associated with the nomadic tribes from West Africa to West China, who are mostly Moslems, practicing or not. With regards to having or rearing dogs, different religious scholars have different views and opinions, therefore the “hukum” or legal ruling/verdict becomes a conflicting situation or otherwise known as “Khilaaf”. Thus, the best solution is to avoid having dogs as pets. However, for those who already have them as pets or those who have a very keen interest in the line of having dogs in general, the outcome or verdict should be actually a must but “makruh”. In Islamic terminology, something which is makruh is a disliked or offensive act (literally “hated”). Though it is not haram (forbidden) and therefore not a sin, a person who abstains from this action will be rewarded. Muslims are encouraged to avoid such actions when possible. This is one of the degrees of approval (ahkam) in Islamic law. This is also the view of Iman Ibnu Abdil Barr in the book of At-Tamhid, as the disallowing of dog-rearing is not firmly acted upon, thus the verdict is makruh. The laws pertaining to each individual may differ but the methodologies & principles remain the same. Thus referring to the disallowing of dog-rearing becomes more of a public interest (maslahat) in terms of cleanliness (hygiene), relationship with our neighbours, zoonotic diseases, and so forth. If all these do not seem to become a problem/nuisance in society/public interest, then the laws to disallow dog-rearing ultimately disappear, or in other words, will be uplifted.
Thus muslems should bear in mind and don’t just take for granted the Islam laws and rules as in the hadeeth on rearing dogs. May most muslems know better about it than me. What ever we do. It’s up to us to consider about this issue. We are being judge to what we have done and be done. The Prophet also said: “Every act of goodness is (a form of) charity.”

Allah knows best, Allahu A’lam

Assalamu Alaikom warahmatu Allahi wa barakatuhu.

Capture from Webcam 30fps MPEG picture

Capture MPEG-4 live picture from your Webcamera up to 30 fps
For Immediate Release

Contact: Deksi Sakilan, , deksimapansakilan@yahoo.com.my, http://deksisakilan.newweblab.com

Deksi Systems announces Efficient Camera Assistant

Lahad Datu, Malaysia, 10 January 2011 – Deksi Systems has published new product – Capture from Webcam 30fps MPEG picture.

An other popular application, though, is to either send live pictures of what is happening in the picture that is covered by the webcam or to even broadcast via online broadcasting precisely what is happening with both sound and picture. If installed stealthily, this application could even be used for covert surveillance.
Given the large quantity of devices that either have a web camera attached or can support one, this is an perfect way to inexpensively and simply protect the region around that pc from invasion or burglary.

Professional surveillance application is now accessible that will work for any camera or IP camera and for most capture cards as well. You can monitor whatever your motion detectors are picking up at your residence or firm while you can be half a globe away.
The software itself may not be simple, but it can make life simpler for you.

Luckily, there is new professional surveillance application that simplifies much of the decision making.
You don`t necessarily have to get rid of a working analog CCTV system in order to modernize to a broadcasting video that can be watched from any online connected station or 3G phone. Video capture cards can digitally convert the snapshots for broadcast. Until yesterday, there had been no real attempts to regulate the new IP cameras; every make and manufacturer functioned a tiny differently. And when you connect cameras into the mix, finding one application to control them all was heavy.

The way that it works is to analyze the image sent by a camera that is either connected by USB or using a video capture card for motion. When it picks up that movement, it can therefore take any number of events, including triggering an siren.

AVAILABILITY
Efficient Camera Assistant application can be acquired for free at the Deksi Systems website at: http://deksisakilan.newweblab.com/stores/deksisakilan/4027pgabout.html

My Old Car

My Old Lovely Car

PROTON SAGA (1985–1991)

The Proton Saga was launched in September 1985 by Malaysia’s Prime Minister on that time, Dato’ Seri Dr Mahathir bin Mohamad ( Now Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad).The Proton Saga originally based on the 1983 Mitsubishi Lancer Fiore.The name Saga was chosen from the winner of the contest which was held to choose the name of the first national car, Ismail Jaafar is a retired military soldier.The Proton Saga then sold in the United Kingdom in 1989.

As a symbol of the beginning of the Malaysian automotive industry the first Proton Saga that rolled off the production line was presented to the Malaysian National Museum as a symbol of the beginning of the Malaysian automotive industry.It was offered as a 4-door saloon, followed by the addition of a hatchback variant, introduced in 1988 as the Proton Knight and was later known as Saga Aeroback.

Early Proton Saga models were powered by SOHC 8-valve 4-cylinder petrol engines sourced from Mitsubishi, available in both 1.3- and 1.5-litre displacements.Both engines were available with a 5-speed manual transmission, but a 3-speed Mitsubishi Tri-matic automatic was available with the 1.5-liter engine in 1987.

In 1990, the line-up was revised with the introduction of 12-valve Megavalve engines, which increased power ratings to 75 bhp (56 kW) (from the original 70.5 bhp (53 kW) in the former 8-valve (Magma) version) for the 1.3-litre engine, and 90 bhp (67 kW) for the 1.5-litre engine.

Proton Saga is a symbol of the beginning of the Malaysian Automotive industry. As a Malaysian, we should be proud with our country because we have the capability to make our own car and become one of the automotive country. Proton has manufacture many model after Saga. The latest is Proton Exora.

Proton continues on changing its model and becoming more good-looking. Developing into a high-tech luxury Malaysian car. Most Malaysian residents in this days almost can’t afford to buy this car, because its prize are also getting more expensive than ever before.

My story is not about to promote the proton automotive industry or to its car products. What I am trying to share with is my old  proton saga. In  which is until to-day I am still owned this car. My car was the first model of saga.  It was already own by first and the second owner before I have owned  it. I bought this car from the second owner worth around RM10,000. The brand of this car on its first launch was RM27.00. The first owner bought this car on year 1986. The second owner bought this car fives years later. He own this car until  2006. And from that time  on to this day I still have this car.

I should say that this car is unique not with its appearance, but because,  its whole body and the engine is  still the original one. This car has never been over hauled nor has change its engine. If there is any trouble of the car it’s just its battery and the wiring. The battery of  course should be change when it is already exhausted. But the wiring is still the old original wire. Yet the wire almost ruined, and is full of patches connected with some wire. But the wiring is still on its original position. Why it is being  the unique to me? Because this car  had never been got into big trouble or malfunctioned. The engine is still in good condition. This car was swamped into the sea water when I was trying to cross the sea from Semporna to Pulau Bum-Bum for repainting. I want to repaint and repair some minor damages on this car in  my house in Pulau Bum-Bum. To make it easy for me to do work even  night-time. The car swamped into  the sea after  we finished the repainting and crossing it back to  town. I have dismantle it again and rinsed it with fresh water. Fear that might be rusty because of the sea water.

Even it has drawn into  the sea water my car is still running smoothly until today. That’s why I called it my loving car because it did not give a big trouble in maintaining it, just a little maintenance of engine oil. 3 or 4 times a year. I didn’t do  any costly maintenance with this car although it is  already almost 25 years old. Would you believed that a car in such a long period of time is still, its body and the engine is the original one. It’s only my Car My lovely Proton Saga old car.
