Divine test - perhaps this was what Imelda told Ferdinand, too

YOURSAY | ‘For Rosmah, when all else fails, invoke the name of God.’

Be patient, for this is a divine test, Rosmah tells Najib

Pemerhati: Rosmah Mansor said, “What is important is Allah understands what is the truth.”

Allah must also be aware that The Wall Street Journal report dated April 19 states , “$681 million arrived in two transfers at AmBank Bhd to be deposited in the personal account of Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak.

“Global investigators believe those transfers represent a portion of the money diverted from a Malaysian state economic-development fund called 1MDB over several years…

“As they dig deeper, investigators have increased their estimates of siphoned funds to as much as $6 billion, a sharp increase from a few months ago, said a person familiar with one country’s probe.”

Since none of WSJ’ s allegations so far have turned out to be false, Allah the all-knowing will know if even more than $6 billion has been siphoned off.

Allah probably also knows that 1MDB will not be able to settle the huge debts (as RM24 billion or more may have been stolen) and Malaysian taxpayers’ money will be used to pay the debts.

Slumdog: Rosmah, have you considered that Allah is actually punishing Najib for his transgressions by the consistent and prolonged attacks from within Malaysia and the world’s media?

Don’t be fooled into believing that it is a divine test from Allah.

Dont Just Talk: Allah is truly very patient with you and your husband, Rosmah - that

despite being accused of spending RM3.3 million in Europe during Najib's trip to the Netherlands and within 14 days, the same credit card was used in Hawaii, with another RM750,000 spent at the Chanel store, as alleged by WSJ , nothing could shake both of you.

Anon1: To worm your way out of any thorny question, just play the God card. There'll be no further questions to "This is a test from God", "This is God's will", "God forbid", "God decides", etc.

I suppose it was God's decree that “681 American pies” must land in the PM's account. It was God's decree that all financial decisions on 1MDB must be decided by the PM.

It was also God who had taken over the PM's hand when he executed the scores of documents related to 1MDB. And it was God's will that 1MDB will bankrupt the nation.

Anonymous$&@?: Trying to appear 'God-fearing' and asking for divine help by invoking the name of God only works for those who are pious and upright in nature.

Going to Mecca to perform the haj annually will not cleanse one's soul of evil deeds and sins. Karma will determine one's fate on Earth and God will determine one's fate when he leaves this world.

One comes to this world with nothing and one will leave this world with nothing...

Odin Tajué: I think most of us have formed the wrong opinion of Rosmah. She is obviously in constant touch with Allah - no, not the same one that the Arab Christians worship but the Allah that allows his Chosen One to eat 681 American pies and then more.

Now, since she enjoys that privilege, she must be special in her Allah's eyes. Yes, indeed, the Chosen One must be very, very patient.

Wira: A divine test - perhaps this was what Imelda told Ferdinand, too.

Anonymous 2362021442199789: Just beware of divine retribution should you be invoking Allah's name to cover up massive acts of corruption and bringing misery to Malaysians.

The nation has placed their trust in your leadership. No number of umrah performed can exonerate you from the evil perpetuated in the event that you are guilty as alleged.

Nonetheless, if you are innocent of any wrongdoing and you have not been lying, may Allah shower his blessings on you and your husband.

Telestai!: Yeow cha kwai ’ in Cantonese or ‘ you tiao ’ literally means "oil-fried devil" and, according to folklore, is an act of protest against Song Dynasty official Qin Hui, who is said to have orchestrated the plot to frame the general Yue Fei, an icon of patriotism in Chinese culture.

It is said that the food, originally in the shape of two human-shaped pieces of dough but later evolved into two pieces joined in the middle, represents Qin Hui and his wife, both having a hand in collaborating with the enemy to bring about the great general's demise.

Thus the ‘you tiao’ is deep fried and eaten as if done to the traitorous couple. In keeping with the legend, ‘you tiao’ are often made as two-foot long rolls of dough joined along the middle, with one roll representing the husband and the other the wife.

Anyone care for some ‘jib you tiao’?

Vijay47: While God does indeed work in mysterious ways, I doubt He would want to test Najib, since that would be tantamount to testing one of His own.

Why, only recently did Najib's apostles in Umno, if I am allowed to so describe them, announce to all and sundry that our beloved great leader and prime minister was of divine attributes.

On the other hand, Allah would hardly want to pay attention to demons like Najib, but in keeping with the times, I am sure that God has outsourced His supervisory duties to others.

So, Rosmah, while repentance and awareness of a greater force is all well and good, I would suggest that you and your husband pay close attention to satans who might come a'calling from France, Switzerland, Singapore, America, and in fact anywhere else but Malaysia.

You both will then have the devil to pay as all hell breaks loose.
