In a report on Utusan Online, Nik Aziz, in one of his talks last night at Kampung Jambu here, alleged that the prayers by Muslim Umno members will not be accepted by Allah as the party rejects Islamic policies. KOTA BHARU: PAS spiritual leader, Datuk Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat has made yet another controversial statement regarding Muslim Umno members which should also make non-Muslims wary of the 'holier-than-thou' approach he has been adopting.
He also claims that Umno has been rejecting Allah all this while by practicing a national policy that rejects Islamic-based policies in its rule.
"Umno rejects Islam, rejecting Islam means rejecting Allah. This means their prayers will not bring 'pahala' (reward). How will their prayers be accepted if they reject Islam?"
At the same time, he also said if PAS members reject Islam, they too will not receive their 'rewards'.
"This includes PAS members who are arrogant or stingy, they too will not be 'rewarded' in what they do.
"It is not easy for our prayers to be accepted. How can one obtain his rewards if one rejects Islam? Allah brought Islam to us through Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), and suddenly Umno rejects Islamic policies, opting for national ones instead. How will they get rewarded that way?" he said.
The talk was attended by some 500 people made up of mostly staunch PAS supporters.
Nik Aziz also urged Kelantanese to vote for PAS in the upcoming general election.
"If Umno gives money, take. They give sugar, stir it. They give you clothes, wear it. If they give you a cow, slaughter it. But when they hand you the ballot paper, make sure you vote for PAS," he remarked.
At a Press conference in conjunction with PAS' 58th Annual Assembly in Kota Baru last Nov 17, Nik Aziz claimed that Umno is an apostate party for rejecting Islam in its party policies.
He also threw a question asking if the party is now based on Christianity, Buddhism or if it is simply an atheist party.
Prior to that, PAS, via Nik Aziz's brother, Nik Razi had even prayed for the downfall of Umno and BN in a special event held at Stadium Muhamad IV in the state capital.
