Felda has paid up all loans taken in 1970s and 1980s

KUALA LUMPUR: Felda has fulfilled its financial commitment in settling loans it made in the 1970s and 1980s.

Chairman Tan Sri Yusof Noor said it has started paying up the instalments in the past 10 years.

The maturing date is in 2014 but Felda managed to clear it all in stages starting from 2000.

"The financial standings have shown it has no more outstanding amount to date," he told reporters during a buka puasa function on Tuesday.

"There is no way to say Felda is bankrupt for it has proved to the World bank and other financial institutions including Saudi Arabia and Kuwait financial houses of its capability in paying up the loans ahead of times," he said.

He has later handed duit raya to 28 football members of Felda United as a bonus for winning the Premier League in July.

Felda United plays in the country’s football Super League club next season under the guide of coach E. Elavarasan.

Among those who attended the buka puasa were Felda director general Datuk Dzulkifli Abdul Wahab, Felda Group Holdings president Datuk Sobri Ahmad, Malayan Sugar Manufacturing chairman Raja Datuk Sharipuddin Hizan Raja Zainal Abidin.

Jangan Keliru! Utamakanlah Yang Lebih Utama!

"Alhamdulillah, surau-surau dan masjid-masjid dikunjungi ramai ahli jamaah pada bulan Ramadhan yang mulia ini. Apatah lagi pada sebelah malamnya. Bilangan ahli jamaah pada solat sunnat Tarawih sangat ramai sehingga ada yang terpaksa solat di luar surau pada minggu pertama bulan Ramadhan.

Inilah keberkatan Ramadhan. Ramai manusia berduyun-duyun ke masjid dan surau untuk bersolat jamaah dan masing-masing berlumba-lumba untuk membuat kebajikan untuk merebut pahala yang berlipat kali ganda pada bulan yang penuh barakah ini.

Namun, ada sebahagian ahli masyarakat yang salah faham akan keutamaan sesuatu amal/perbuatan atas sesuatu amal/perbuatan yang lain yang sepatutnya diutamakan terlebih dahulu. Antara salah faham itu ialah:

  1. Mengutamakan solat sunnat Tarawih secara berjamaah, tetapi meninggalkan solat fardhu Isyak secara berjamaah.

  2. Mengutamakan cepatnya untuk khatam al-Quran, tetapi meninggalkan usaha untuk tadabbur al-Quran.

  3. Mengutamakan dan berpegang kuat kepada pendapat feqh tertentu, tetapi melupakan adab ikhtilaf dan akhlaq sesama muslim sehingga terguris ukhwah Islamiyyah. Sedangkan berlapang dada dalam soal khilafiah feqh adalah lebih baik, daripada memutuskan hubungan dan perpaduan masyarakat muslim.

  4. Melambatkan solat fardhu Maghrib disebabkan oleh berbuka. Sedangkan seseorang sepatutnya menyegerakan solat fardhu Maghrib selepas berbuka puasa secara ringkas. Jika mahu sambung makan selepas solat fardhu Maghrib, silakan.

  5. Mengutamakan sunnah berpakaian yang tidak disyariatkan ketika ke masjid seperti berjubah/berserban (bagi lelaki) dan bertelekung putih (bagi wanita), tetapi meninggalkan sunnah berpakaian yang disyariatkan seperti menutup aurat, tidak sombong, membazir, keterlaluan dan bertasyabbuh (meniru) kaum lain ketika berpakaian seharian.

  6. Wanita mengutamakan untuk turut serta solat berjamaah di masjid, tetapi melupakan adab dan akhlaq ketika keluar rumah. Wanita boleh bersolat di masjid, tetapi jika boleh menimbulkan fitnah lebih elok dia solat di rumah sahaja.

  7. Mengutamakan solat sunnat pada waktu sepertiga malam, tetapi meninggalkan solat Subuh secara berjamaah. Ini biasa terjadi pada seseorang akibat mengantuk.

  8. Mengutamakan ibadah sunnat di surau atau masjid ketika waktu kerja, tetapi meninggalkan tanggungjawab dan amanah majikan di tempat kerja.

  9. Dan lain-lain lagi.

Di atas adalah senarai beberapa salah faham yang telah saya kenalpasti dan ingat buat masa ini. Tentu rakan-rakan yang membaca tulisan ini dapat menambah lagi bilangan senarainya.

Mudah-mudahan ummat ISLAM semakin bijak dalam beramal ibadah dan bermuamalah dengan bertambahnya ilmu setiap hari. Hadirilah majlis ilmu samada di masjid, di surau, di tempat kerja, di seminar-seminar, melalui TV dan radio atau pun melalui maklumat-maklumat di internet.

Semoga ALLAH memelihara kita semua dan menjadikan kita semua hamba-hambaNYA yang berTAQWA, amin…

Wa Allahu Ta’ala A’lam.

Kastam patahkan cubaan seludup mercun, bunga api bernilai RM250,320

PETALING JAYA - Kastam Diraja Malaysia Kuala Lumpur berjaya mematahkan percubaan menyeludup mercun dan bunga api bernilai RM250,320 dengan anggaran cukai sebanyak RM162,708 di dalam sebuah lori di jalan Plaza Tol Changkat Jering, Perak, Ahad lepas.

Timbalan Pengarah Kastam Bahagian Penguatkuasaan Kuala Lumpur, Jaafar Mat Jawi berkata, bertindak atas risikan, sepasukan pegawai dan anggota menahan lori itu kira-kira pukul 11 malam.

"Lori itu ditahan di tepi jalan berhampiran plaza tol berkenaan. Namun pemeriksaan ke atas lori mendapati tiada individu di dalamnya," katanya kepada pemberita di pejabatnya di sini hari ini.

Beliau berkata, hasil pemeriksaan di belakang bahagian lori itu, kastam menemui sebanyak 425 karton mercun dan bunga api daripada pelbagai jenama dan jenis.

"Sisatan awal mendapati mercun dan bunga api itu dipercayai diseludup dari Thailand untuk dipasarkan di sekitar Lembah Klang sempena musim perayaan ini.

"Pihak kastam akan meneruskan siasatan berdasarkan dokumen yang dirampas di dalam lori tersebut sehingga tertangkapnya syarikat atau individu yang menjadi dalang dalam penyeludupan dan pengedaran barang terlarang ini," katanya.

Beliau berkata, kes disiasat mengikut Seksyen 135(1)(e) Akta Kastam 1967 yang membawa hukuman denda tidak lebih daripada 10 kali ganda amaun duti kastam atau penjara tidak melebihi tiga tahun atau kedua-duanya sekali.

Orang ramai yang mempunyai maklumat mengenai sebarang aktiviti penyeludupan, pengedaran dan penjualan barang larangan atau belum lulus kastam supaya menghubungi talian bebas tol 1-800-8855.

"Saya juga menasihatkan orang ramai agar tidak membeli, mengedar dan bermain mercun atau bungapi sepanjang bulan perayaan ini demi keselamatan masing-masing," katanya.

Al-Shabab vows 'massive' Somali war

Al-Shabab fighters have attacked a hotel in Mogadishu, the Somali capital, killing at least 35 people, a day after declaring a massive war.

Members of al-Shabab, disguised as government security forces, launched the attack on Tuesday at the Muna Hotel, which is known to host many Somali government officials and politicians.

Eight parliamentarians were killed in the attack.

"It happened when two suicide bombers detonated themselves," Abdirahman Yariisow, Somalia's information minister, who was at the hotel, told Al Jazeera.

"The security was there, but for some reason, they managed their way in and started shooting. No one was expecting this kind of atrocity.

"This shows how al-Shabab is brutal; they never respected our call [to stop the fighting] for the holy month of Ramadan."

'Final war'

The attack came after al-Shabab fighters declared a "massive, final" war against what they called "invaders" and attacked army barracks in several districts of Mogadishu on Monday.

Sheikh Ali Mohamoud Rage, al-Shabab's spokesman, then said fighters were starting a new war against "invaders", an apparent reference to the 6,000 African Union troops deployed in the country to support government forces.

At least 40 people were killed and more than 100 injured in the violence that followed, medics and witnesses said.

There was an overnight lull before the fighting resumed on Tuesday morning.

The fighting came days after hundreds of Ugandan troops began arriving in the Somali capital to strengthen the current AU peacekeeping force.

"As long as these [AU] forces are in Mogadishu, I think it will be unlikely for al-Shabab to take over [the city]. But they can inflict huge damage," Dr Afyare Abdi Elmi, a professor of International Affairs at Qatar University, told Al Jazeera.

Ugandan reinforcements

Uganda said last month that it was willing to send 1,200 troops to Somalia, in addition to the 6,000 strong AMISOM mission sent by African Union countries.

"The additional troops began arriving last Friday. They were airlifted to different areas and of course they will continue to arrive," Wafula Wamunyinyi, the AU deputy special representative for Somalia, said on Monday.

Al-Shabab, which has been fighting Somalia's UN-backed government since the start of 2007, recently claimed responsibility for a twin bombing attack in Uganda, which killed more than 70 people who were watching the World Cup.

The group has said that it will continue to undertake strikes in Uganda and Burundi, in east-central Africa, as long as those countries provide troops for the AU peacekeeping force in Somalia.

Somalia has not had an effective central government for nearly 20 years and al-Shabab controls significant portions of the country.

The US and other countries say al-Shabab is linked to al-Qaeda and consider the group a terrorist organisation.

More than 21,000 Somalis have been killed in fighting since the start of the uprising, 1.5 million have been uprooted from their homes and nearly half a million are sheltering in other countries in the region.

"Civil wars end either through military victory or through a negotiated settlement," Dr Abdi Elmi said.

"In Somalia, at least for the short term, neither is likely to happen ... the goals of the opposing forces cannot be reconciled now," he said.

"In the long run, building effective Somali security forces and functioning state is the answer."
