AYAH PIN, THE GROUP LEADER
Ariffin Muhammad or more fondly known as Ayah Pin has several meanings of names; “Arif” is referring to Supreme, Intelligent or Equality and “Ayah” gives meaning of The Father , The Leader of us all. Ayah Pin who is the self-styled spiritual leader known to thousands of followers in Malaysia and internationally, has received revelations since he was a little boy..
Ayah Pin’s ideology has 80% contents on spiritual matter.
At age of 7 and 10, the holy angel, Gabriel, had visited him several times. However, he only took the task seriously when he was married at age 14 years old.
Ayah Pin has been brought up in the native village and never learns in school. He earns his living by collecting woods from the mountains nearby his house.
At his very young age, his has gone for meditation at the nearby mountains for several days and weeks and came back to his house with several woods collection.
Ayah Pin received continuous revelation at age of 16 years old and it has given him an impact to his life.
Ayah Pin started his soul practices with chanting and praying. He follows several friends including Tok Ayah Hassan (one of the deviants leader) to meditate in many caves and mountains. During his exploration to discover the beauty of Islamic rituals, he has received continuous visions and revelations. "When I was 10 years old, I found myself to be dead for 40 days and was sent to the sky world. Since then, it's a long story and the details don't matter, but I've been dead 17 times and each time have come back to save the lives of all people, of any religion," says Ayah Pin – reported by the StarOnline.
When he was at age of 25 years old, he found himself having 70% soul travels in a day. He earns minimum of 20 visions a day. It was said that, during his journey exploring the other world, he had discovered the God’s covenant of the humanitarian laws and judgmental processes. Most of his journeys have exposed him to the mystical places and legendaries people of the world.
Sometimes he ate less than a bowl of rice in a month and fasting in most of the days. He had been exploring into different world dimension and learnt different concept of human living and human right’s laws in religions.
Ayah Pin has neither “religious look” nor wearing “religious attire”. His outlook is fit, simple and yet mysterious. It is quite difficult to predict his behavior as he has good psychological observation towards people’s behavior and reaction.
His language is very difficult to understand as that proofed he has never learnt in school. Not many people could easily receive his teachings as he speaks only one language of his own traditional dialect.
While he is very unusual and unpredictable man, he could still attract many visitors of different races and cultures to seek for his advise and to listen to his talks.
Ayah Pin is considered a very talented self-styled spiritual leader who has idealistic concept of unity and equality in all religions. He has been brave to stand out in the middle of the Islamic crowd and hold his new ideology of many paths one god, many names one God and one sky kingdom for all religions.
KAMPUNG BATU 13
Kampung Batu 13 lies in a remote corner of Terengganu that borders Kelantan, and a bus ride to Kota Bharu takes less than 90 minutes from the nearest town of Jerteh, about 20km from the village.
The village has about 30 houses built by the followers who are living on the 6-acre land. The landowner is Che Minah, Ayah Pin’s wife who is now 64 years old.
The land status was an agriculture land, which was previously covered with bushes and rubber trees plantation 10 years ago. Some of the land area was cleared in 1997 where the villagers decided to build some houses for living. The first structure built was a small well used to supply clean water for the villagers.
In this village lies the earthly ‘Spiritual Headquarters’ of Ariffin Muhammad. The village itself is supposed to be a replica of what people calls the Sky Kingdom (the heavenly abode). The followers’ claims that the blueprint for the buildings came from the Sky Kingdom. It is aimed at promoting universal unity. The teapot signifies the purity of water and its medicinal values. It is associated with all major religions, Nearby is the Umbrella, a tall orange structure adorned with a bright yellow canopy.
The giant structures are linked by walkways of polished tiles, interspersed with Roman pillars, balustrades, wood and plaster carving lining the twists and turns of the path leading from one to another.
To many Ayah Pin’s saintly claims and his strange structures may border an absurdity but to his band of followers, he is nothing short of divine miracle.The umbrella is a place for people to take shelter beneath God and it can also be associated with the nine planets in Hinduism.
Ayah Pin has about 10,000 followers in Malaysia and 3000 followers internationally.
Among all, in average of 1000 followers will be coming every weekend for group gathering at the village. Among Ayah Pin’s strong influences are the universal unity of the different religions and his superb spiritual knowledge on spiritual laws and the Kingdom of God.
The uniqueness has brought many people together to love each other, living in peace, communicating the same language of Beliefs and God’s Kingdom. Teach the people to view things in broader scope. No more fanatic human behaviors such as envy of other religion, fight to convert people or proud of own religion.
From my observation, the followers are mostly among the professionals, arts background and people with some religious foundation. Many of them can be considered as people with open paradigm who can accept new ideology and perception towards spiritual beliefs.
The group has no fanatic value towards religion and willing to tolerate to discover more about what they have embraced in. They are open to find more similarities in major world religions than differences. They have learnt to discover about different way of praising God and different ritual practices in search of God.
The best scenario to describe the openness of the group is when four of the group members had declared apostasy. It has given Malaysian a deep thought of Freedom in Religion the government has never dealt before. Two of them were the religious teachers who have tertiary education in Islamic teachings from University of Al-Azhar, Messier.
This was very chaotic to know how the religious teacher could renounce Islam while still be living in the middle of Islamic state and had been jailed for their declaration.
The four made headlines in the late 1990s when they renounced Islam through a statutory declaration. They finished serving between two and three years imprisonment in late 2002 for contempt of court.
Lawyers for the four members who lost their appeal in the Federal Court are studying the possibility of filing for a review of the decision. According to Haris (the lawyer), they were disappointed after having waited so long for the decision. “It is shocking that the court has failed to clarify the law on renunciation of religion ... the law remains uncertain as it stands. In light of this, we will have to file other cases which are awaiting similar judicial direction,” he said. In this landmark case, the appellants had sought the Federal Court to consider if an adult Muslim is entitled to renounce Islam under Article 11 of the Federal Constitution guaranteeing freedom of religion to every citizen. The court was also asked to declare void any restrictive law or one that fettered the right of an adult Muslim to renounce Islam.
As conclusion in Malaysia, anyone trying to leave Islam faces loss of inheritance, family support and work, and banishment to a legal limbo where the religious label on one's identity card becomes a life-defining fact
