We've got an email from Dr. Yamin Cheng from IIUM and we hope all readers will spread this to others
A PERSONAL REQUEST
Assalamu`alaykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu
Greetings of Peace.
If you are reading this, we have come to the right place!
But let us first introduce ourselves to you. We are like you, Malaysian Chinese who converted to Islam, or, as some would like to put it, reverts to Islam. The male figure at the top picture is me, Dr Yamin Cheng. The lady to the right of me is Nurlaily Yap. Nurlaily Yap is currently a committee member in MACMA, the acronym for Malaysian Chinese Muslims Association. She is serving in the committee of MACMA Malaysia, the umbrella MACMA organization in Malaysia, as well as in MACMA Selangor. What about me? I am helping out Nurlaily in reaching out to people like you, people who not only come to Islam, but people who believe they can make a difference to our Malaysian society in the way we practise Islam. Nurlaily and I believe you are a special Muslim. Do you believe you are a special Muslim? Do you think you can make a difference to our society? Or are you just a convert who, after coming into Islam, only complains about the existing state of the Muslims? Can you make a difference? Do you want to make a difference? Nurlaily told me that there are around 60,000 Chinese converts to Islam in Malaysia. 60,000? Does this figure include the ones who have gone to heaven? If you are one of those still walking around on this earth, we would like you to give us some information about yourself. We need to connect. If you happened to be one of those who have gone to heaven, then don’t bother to reply.
Just let us know these things about yourself – your name, age, education, profession, and handphone number.
That’s all we want from you for now. Do you know of any convert who you would like them to join you in this mailing list? Then pass this request to them and ask them to contact us. You may send your brief biodata to Nurlaliy at email@example.com, or to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You will be hearing from us again. Thank you and Gong Xi Fa Cai !
