Assalamualaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh
Honorable ones the juries, the participant of English speech contest, and all audiences.
Before I begin to give a speech, I would like to invite you to thank to Allah the Almighty, Who has given us Mercy and Blessing, so we can meet together in this blessing place. And also I don't forget to deliver sholawat and salam to our prophet Muhammad SAW, Who has brought us from the darkness to the brightness, so we are always in the right way.
Ladies and gentlemen.
Drugs? What is that? I am sure you all already know, and may be better than me about what drugs is and what the advantages and disadvantages are. Drugs actually are a medicine for anesthetize patients in surgery. But that perception was misapplied by some people.
Drugs have been misapplied by some people for a long time. Some people which use drugs beyond the medical treatment consider that drags can make them feel better when they facing some problems and for other reasons such as can make them feel easy to find new brilliant ideas or just for a pleasure.
I am sure you will never forget the newest accident in Tugu Tani, Jakarta, when a drugs user, Apriliani, drived her car with high speed and hit the pedestrians in a halte. It obviously proof that in the effect of drugs, hallucination of the drugs user is bigger than other normal people. They cannot make a distinguish between the real world and the hallucination world and consider all things in around them are like a dream and they was not real.
The effect of drugs is not only dangerous for drugs user it self, with it's big risks such as overdoses, HIV/AIDS and some damage in our brain and mental. Drugs also dangerous for the people in surrounding us, such the example above. It opens our eyes that the usage of drugs beyond the medical treatments is profitless. Because drugs just lead us in the destruction for the user it self and for other people surrounding.
Dear ladies and gentlemen
But it is so sad, if we hear many young generation consume the drugs such as Heroin, cokain, Koplo, dextron, extacy, marijuana , just to be drunk, to get enjoyment, to get satisfaction, without think their future, they only think the temporary pleasure.
As moslems we have the guidance from the holy qur’an that drinking alcoholic drink is forbiden, and it is bad action, and despicable deed, as Allah Said in the holy qur'an : "ya ayyuhalladzina amanu innamal khomru walmaysir wal anshob wal azlam rijsummin amalisyton fajtanibuhu laalakum tuflihun." It means : "oh ye the believers actually alcoholic drink, gambling, and draw destiny is despicable from the evil’s action so avoid them, may be you will be the pleasure people.(almaidah verse : 90)"
Because the drugs or the alcoholic drink is so dangerous for our health, for our body, for our future. So we must keep a way from it. we must avoid it. Don’t try to consume it, don’t try to sell or buy it.
Those are what I can deliver to you at this moment, thank a lot for your attention and I ask forgiveness for my mistakes, and the last I say:
