Life of a Reverted Muslim

"O believers enter into Islam completely and do not follow the footsteps of Shaitan, surely he is your clear-cut enemy. If you falter after receiving the clear-cut message, then keep in mind that Allah is Mighty, Wise. Are they waiting for Allah to come down to them in the shadow of clouds, along with the angels, and make His decision known? Ultimately all matters will be presented to Allah for decision"
(Surah Al-Baqara, Ayah 208-210)

Xin Nian Kuai Re - Welcoming god of prosperity?

Xin Nian Kuai Re (Happy Chinese New Year)

Who is Cai Sen (god of prosperity) that majority of Chinese worshipping and welcoming at this moment? Lets see who is him;

"Cai Shen is the Chinese name of the god of prosperity. People believed that Cai Shen are able to control the fortune and wealth for the mortals.

According to the folk legend, usually Cai Shen refers to Zhao Gongming who is called the orthodox god of prosperity.

According to Feng Shen Bang, a book about Chinese myth for the investiture of gods, Zhao Gongming has magic power and is in charge of wind, thunder and rain. Later, he becomes a general of millions of ghosts. He is always depicted had a black face, riding a black tiger and carring a golden rod. He is believed to lived in the early of Qin Dynasty between 221 BC - 206 BC"

Before he is known as god of prosperity, he is a human that has prosper himself with the food, health & wealth by The Sustainer of the universe that created everything and all of us. Instead of asking from the creation, I would like to invite you to worship the ONLY Creator & Sustainer that give us and Zhao Gongming health, wealth and everything that we have today. No need to 'susah susah' worship specific gods/goddes for different needs when you can worship One True God for all your needs.

How about that? Sounds like a better deal right? Happy Chinese New Year & May Allah guide all of us to His straight path, InshaAllah...
