In ginlupaan ha Kapūan Sug nahipu’ sin indajinis lupa dagbus bungangkahuy.

Bukun tabiat nila in magpanantili’. Atas sunugun nila in pais ha paslangan suga, baliun in bukug hapagumahan bangman in anak asawa nila mabuhi’ daing ha Qudrat sin Mahasussi Allah.

In Bangsa Sūg tanug ha karayawan. Malasa magbagay, maulung ha tau liyulungkupan iban mamawgbug hapagkahi. Bangsa di’ magpanulat ha katas sin kangian mahinang kanila, sagawa’ hipagdukut nila ha laum atay. In Bangsa Sūg di’ magpanglungkup bang way kapatut nila, iban di’ magpamunu’ bang way dusa kanila.

Maluhay sila pagdahun magisun-isun salta’ maluhay sulutun, ayaw hadja pagtaisa. In kaisug iban dayaw nila di’ hikasabanding. Bukun tabiat nila in magsujud pa kahandak sin satru’ mabungsi kanila sagawa’ in dayaw nila bukun paghinang-hinangun. Bang sila nakarayaw, dugu’ nyawa iban alta’ di nila ūgun.

Bangsa hipu’ sin Addat-bihasa’ (Culture) napusu’ daing ha adat sin kamaasan salta’ daing ha pamiat sin manga ganarul nagpasaplag agama daing ha liyuuran sin manusiya’ mulliya, Junjungan Rasulullah SAW, ha jaman nakauna.

In kakaun nila tarbilang bidda’. Bangsa masuwak ha malara iban panggi’. Tiyula’ itum in pagtag nila ha tiyula’ sapi’ liyalamuran pamapa siyunug lahing.

Misan sila masuwak mangaun-kaun, sagawa’ wala’ sila nabiyaksa magkaun sin bukun halal. Bukun kasusuban nila in magkaun hak, sabab sin sulang ha bawgbug nila pag-agama. 



Tanug da isab sila pa dunya bilang bangsa maisug. Maisug magmahi sin kapatut, magpalindug sin kasabunnalan, magbawgbug sin hula’, maglasa sin bangsa iban magpapipis ha ngan sin agama. Wayruun kanila in bahasa “Surrender”, sabab sin hiyahalgaan nila in martabbat. 



Nagdanan daing ha tipu akkal iban hawa napsu sin satru’, in pamarinta pagSultan ha Kapūan Sūg limamma sambil agad-agad lawaun sin manga hula’ mabungsi kaniya.

Sulga’ in pagtawag ha hula’ bihaini. Misan wala’ bilang sin kaibanan bihaun bihadtu adapun pa manga tubu’ Sūg in Kapūan Sūg amuna in Sulga’ ha Subangan. Mabut da in masa ha waktu in katan magduyun-duyun pa subangan sumawud sin rahmat daing ha Tuhan.

Bangsa Sūg Bunut Basa’

Hi Yazir Rajim
Timagna’ hakasangput sin akkal ha dunya, mahumu namu’ pagkadungugan in kabtangan “Bunut Basa'” ha higung hagas sin kalawlahasiyaan. Pangannal namu’ in pagiyanun Bunut Basa’ amun bunut nabasa’ sin tubig atawa dagat. Adapun in yadtu sipat hadja  pa manga sila kubulan atawa di’ pagukun. Sabab in bunut nabasa’ di’ dukutan sin kayu.


Ha dunya sin Bangsa Sūg ha kagimbahan iban ha parian apabila in anak usug sumangput na in pamikil magtuy sin maas lawagan hambuuk tau pantuk kapagguruhan sin anak. In bihaini nahinang na hambuuk adat labi awla in manga tau ha kagimbahan. Bukun in daut nila dumawhat sin ilmu’ ha supaya di’ mapatay, adapun ha supaya sila di’ mabinsana’ ha waktu maawn in paggirit pais atawa unu-unu na musiba in dumatung.


Bukun pulna’ tubu’ Sūg bang di’ makahati sin hal bihaini atawakan way nakabawgbug misan dakuman salawat laung sin manga sila.


Ha  masa namu’ naguki’ sin parakala’ bihaini. Landu’ kami nainu-inu bang unu hangkan di’ kaunun sin mahait in pais sin hambuuk tau kubulan. Malaingkan bang ta utuk-utukun in pais sin manusiya’ landu’ in guya’. Ayaw paka punglu’ na misan hat lahut in hipanglattuk magtuy ra mabiya’ taguk saying in pais.


Ha hakikat niya, mataud da isab ginisan pakayan sin kubulan. Bukun  in katan kubulan sibu’ in diyara nila taming sin ginhawa. Awn daing kanila magusal manik, papakan, pis siyulatan iban sin kaibanan. In pagpakay ha ini awn hipagkambut ha hawakan, hipagpis ha u iban pagsu’lugun.

Adapun awn da isab hangkajinis amun pagtagun nila “Luun Baran”. In luun baran bukun amun lungun-lungun atawakan panyap ha laum baran. In kamaksuran ha ini manunjuki pa ilmu’ pagsugsugun – ilmu’ sihir atawa bukun.


In ilmu’ sihir pagtagun sin sila, ilmu’ pagdunya. Ha kabiyaksahan in sasabbutan niya daing ha bahasa jinn naglamud iban bahasa sin manusiya’. In pakayan ini bang di’ da makadugtul pa tau maingat magpaig sihir, awn dayaw niya. Sagawa’ bang kasukangan utabun da sin mahait.

In bawgbug amun sarayaw-rayaw piyapakay sin manga hulubalang Bangsa Sūg ha jaman nakauna iban bihaun amuna in ilmu’ puti’ atawa ilmu’ kiyawa’ daing ha bitikan sin Ilmu’ Tawhid, Tasawwuf, iban Usuluddin. In kamawmuhan nagpapakay ha ini amun manga sila Arif Billah (Pantuk magTuhan) iban manga maas-maas amun di’ misan makatu’lid magbassa Qur’an.

Laung sin manga sila pantuk bang in pagma’rifat di’ na maglipay duun hakawayi salta’ siyusussi in ginhawa daing ha katan kaharam-haraman tantuha wayruun na makabinasa. Sabab in apasun sin malummi’ ha ginhawa’ amura in malummi’. Bang in kaawnan sin ginhawa sussi ayaw paka mahait misan in bukun mahait (biya’ na sin iku, jangki) di’ da tumubu’.


Sakali in jawab niya ha pangasubu sin kami nakauna, amura tuwi’ tubus pagYakin in di’ hikabinsana’ ha manusiya’ nagdara bawgbug. Misan pa in kaawnan sin hambuuk tau in piyagdayaw niya pis atawa papakan, ha tatkala’ in yakin niya in yaun sabab hadja sin di’ hikaunu kaniya awn waktu mahinang taming marayaw.


In kamawmuhan sin manik, papakan, atawa pis iyaabayan sin bangsa jinn atawa mahluk di’ pagkakitaan.  In pagtag sin abay bang ha bahasa Arab “khadam”. Bang in khadam sin hambuuk manik, papakan atawa pis bukun syaitan, marayaw yadtu hinangun taming baran. In makabuga’ hadja magusal sin bihaini apabila limi’das in i’tikad daing ha Tuhan.


Tungud pa pis siyusulatan ha kabiyaksahan in hipagsulat kawaun daing ha kitab Tajul Muluk iban sin kaibanan kitab sin kamaasan nakauna.  In karayaw sin  hambuuk Pis bukun amun sulat kiyadukut sagawa’ duun nakabutang hakapantuk sin nagsulat kaniya. In pis marayaw amun biyaktul sin manga sila Arif Billah. Karna’ ha hinapusan sin paghinang pis awn didtu mukarna’ hipamaggut amun misan pila tahun tumatas in dayaw.


Biya’ na sin hambuuk bata’-bata’ kiyasuy magdaragang juwalan. Ha waktu minuwi’ hukum in apu’ niya iyan siya; ‘isukan laung na apu’ ha laum sin atay mu in kabtangan ku ini’, in katan sin magtangkud ha dunya Tuhan in magpahibal kanila. Ubus man siya hiyagas-hagasan ampa kiyambut kaniya in hambuuk sulat di’ niya misan kaingatan bassahun in luun. Duun na jimatu in makainu-inu ha waktu in bata’ nagpagunting. Hiyapus in maggugunting naggiyl sin gunting niya di’ ukun in buhuk sin bata’. Ha hinapusan niya pagsanaw sin maggugunting kiyasanawan in kambut niya. Piyabassa mayan sin maggugunting yadtu ha maingat magbassa sulat, in nakadukut ha laum, “In aku magdaragang Juwalan”.


Tanug in Bangsa Sūg pa dunya sin bihaini kahalan. Adapun in katan Tuhan da in magpajatu iban sin magtataming hisiyu-siyu in kabayaan Niya. Bang bukun ha sabab sin manga sila bunut basa’ hapagbunuan nakauna tantu malugay na in tau ha Kapūan Sūg diyaug hapagbunuan.


Ha hambuuk masa magdaratung datung, tumaud da in Tubu’ Sūg magupiksa’ sin baran nila lahil iban batin. Karna’ in daraugan sin bangsa iban kalimayahan sin hula’ subay madawhat bukun hadja ha adlaw dunya subay sambil pa ahirat. Mura-murahan matibuuk in manga sila kubulan magpalindug sin bangsa, hula’ iban agama.

Do NOT Kill Islam in Our Hearts: Respect our Right But FULFILL AND SAFEGUARD It, Too!

Bismillaahi walhamdulillaah wassalaatu wassalaamu alaa Rasuulillaah
Assalamu alaykum wa Rahmatullaahi wa Baarakatuhu
As a voice amplifying muted voices from the marginalized citizenry, these were the salient points that we resonated:
1. We acknowledged and thanked the successful efforts done by lead convenor NCMF most especially by Commsr Edilwasif Baddiri and our HIJABISTS DESK CHIEFTAIN-LEGAL DEFENDER Atty Yaser Apion now with a “hotline”!;
2. We re-affirmed that the “hijaab struggle” started for almost two decades resolutely defended by the Federation of Muslim Students Association (FMSA) and it is thru the nurturing hands of FMSA and UZ thru the late President/CEO Archie Eustaquio where the liberating ground of thousands of MSA students’ piety was spawned;
3. Our humble voice resonate these students’ struggle to the right to religious freedom only in 2008 up to present initially upon appeal from an alumnus, Gamson T. Quijano, staunch defender of hijaab along with Alnajib Maujon in 2011 until we organized the HIJAAB-NIQAAB ADVOCACY NETWORK (HAN);
4. However, it was only in 2011 that we found the key to get engage and collaborate with NCMF through Commsr Edil Baddiri until we found our Hijabists Desk Legal Officer Atty Yaser Apion-from then on NCMF and its regional offices (Manila, Sulu, Basilan, Zamboanga Peninsula and Cebu) have been our e-hub to redress grievances concerning right to religious freedom;
5. As we segue what the NCMF Sec Mehol Sadain said in his Opening Message, the object of the forum is NOT merely to influence but also to generate awareness which NCMF has successfully done when it convened relevant govt agencies and non-govt agencies today;
6. We reiterate his statement that hijaab is more than about fear of ALLAH in as much as it is a raiment of piety;
7. Thus, to infringe it is to strip our women of their taqwa unjustly;
8. We would like to believe that the infringement on hijaab-niqaab is committed by these agencies *NOT* out of spite or prejudice but it is merely out of ignorance just as Commsr Edil has said;
9. However, amidst circulation of pertinent memos and legal issuances: how come the very agencies (such as NBI for one) are defying the very memo that emanated from them? Their personnel mock and ridicule Muslim applicants in phototaking process about a non-existing memo- which is a shame and unforgivable too for personnel of the NBI to be ignorant that such memo is in existence. Such incidents have sown distrust and loss of faith from the youth and other Muslim stakeholders; they feel hopeless of ever receiving genuine redress from the government until the NCMF came in.
10. THUS, with all due respect and begging for his indulgence- we pose two relevant questions to the NCMF Secretary: “Apart from the resolute legal action and processes exhausted by Atty Yaser Apion (Baarakallaahu feehum), what proactive action can NCMF take against government agencies that flagrantly defy its own memo? If prohibition of hijaab-niqaab has reached Judge Estacio’s sala and a writ of preliminary injunction was issued and subsequently defied by UZ, what proactive step must we take to right a wrong? If there is impunity for those perpetrators who abduct our ustadzes without due process of law, it is deplorable that *identified* human rights violators shall go unpunished;
11. Aloud we recall the case of a UP student who committed suicide just because she was not allowed to take her examinations because of financial hardship; how then does her suicide relate to the violation of hijaab-niqaab? We reiterated text from a poster we created:
“Educators and institutions must not become an INSTRUMENT that drives “striving-to-be-pious” students to the brink of spiritual suicide” to unveil is to compel them to commit “spiritual suicide” by killing the life of their religious worship;
12. We recommend that HOLISTIC EDUCATION must lead us to the Summum Bonum which is IHSAN and closer to the ALPHA-OMEGA which is ALLAH; for what is the use of an education if it drives you away from the Beneficence and Mercy of ALLAH- the AL-Alim?
13. This matter is not to trifle with, as evidenced in the threshold impacted by the Pilar College issue albeit the wisdom is media* mileage in terms of promoting awareness of hijaab-niqaab because it is as serious as *endangering* our very peace and security as Muslims instead of *engendering* it;
14. Allowing Hijaab-Niqaab is not merely allowing female Muslims to cover their head; it must include the juyyubihinna excepting the face and hands; and at times excepting only the eyes such as in niqaab. CAVEAT: It is not safe to say that allowing the head veil ONLY but disallowing hijaab of the arms and legs such as in ADEZU is already not tantamount to prohibiting hijab per se because it still IS tantamount to exposing their awrah or private parts!”
15. Aware that our right to religious freedom as minority groups is not merely uphold by our local state laws but as well as international laws as entrenched in Art 8 UNDHR, Art 15 ICESCR and Art 27 of ICCPR; we implore the NCMF along with every Muslim present here please…whatever madhaab you may belong whether or not you believe in hijaab-niqaab…please whoever comes to you for help regarding its violation please do help them retain their raiment of taqwa;
16. TOGETHER let us assert to uphold THAT the right to hijaab-niqaab of our Muslim women, the right to religious freedom of Muslims is NOT ONLY about RESPECTING it, it is most importantly all about
FULFILLING and SAFEGUARDING these rights.
BOTTOMLINE: Do NOT just RESPECT our RIGHT to Worship ALLAH; PLEASE FULFILL it! PLEASE SAFEGUARD IT!

♥ Alhamdulillaah…may ALLAH accept our humble endeavors and may ALLAH grant us guidance, piety, self-sufficiency, and contentment…ameen Ya Rabb. ♥

Baarakallaahu feekum wa jazaakumullaahu khayran to all those who joined and are still joining our humble striving to champion the Right to Worship ALLAH… aameen Ya Rabb ♥
