Gong Xi Fa Cai (Happy Chinese New Year)

Recommended Posts

must cherish what we have here....

 

meanwhile in Brunei

 

 

Brunei has announced that for the upcoming Chinese New Year, lion dances can only be performed from February 19 to 21, 2015 and only on three premises, namely, inside the temple, inside Chinese school halls and in the homes of respective Chinese association members. Prior to this the performance was available to the public, especially for Chinese-owned shops. The rules were disclosed in a letter that was circulated in social media, which has been confirmed by the Ministry of Home Affairs.

Brunei: lion dance not longer allowed in public places, as Muslims should not see it

On February 19 and February 21, the lion dances can take place from 8am to 11.30am and from 1.30pm to 5.15pm. On February 20, which is a Friday, the lion dances can only take place in the afternoon from 2pm to 5.15pm following Friday prayers. The lion dances must be temporarily halted for 30 minutes before and after Azan Fardhu Asar in respect of prayer times.

Also, the lion dances cannot be accompanied by any firecrackers or fireworks. The members of the lion dance troupe must be Chinese students or Chinese community members only. The lion dances cannot be performed at hotels, restaurants, commercial premises, roads and other public areas, which before this was allowed at invitation from premise owners.

Last week, imams across Brunei warn that the mere sight of lion dance and Santa Claus could lead to tasyabbuh (imitation) and could damage the aqidah (faith) of Muslims. "Non-Islamic festivals are historically tied with other religions. Sometimes the excitement and fervour of the festivities celebrated by the followers of other religions attract and entice some Muslims to want to participate and join in the merriment. At times, such beliefs are embedded in the form of entertainment, either for the purpose of enlivening the mood of the celebrations for a certain religious ritual," the imams issued a joint statement.

"It is feared that a casual following of this nature will lead to tasyabbuh and invariably taint the sanctity of the Muslim aqidah. In Islam it is forbidden for us to imitate the ways and practices of other religions in matters of their aqidah. Tasyabbuh include the act of imitating their behaviour, way of dressing and special accessorising such as taking part in a lion dance show, wearing a Santa Claus outfit, and decorating homes with pictures or symbols that are not in line with the teachings of Islam. Some might find such imitation to be insignificant but it can have an impact on our aqidah, therefore it is best to avoid it," they added.

Hopefully one day, Singapore don't turn into a state whereby foreigners are the majority and we Singaporeans are the minority, and we will then lose our traditions and values....

 

We must retain our core values and traditions... And celebrate our New Years among the 4 major races
