It is narrated that once an old man seated outside the Jame’ Musjid in Delhi was repeatedly saying: “You are not my Allah and I am not your slave.” As people passed by and heard his statements, the comments began to fly. Some called him a kaafir while others passed various other insulting remarks. Eventually one person stopped and asked: “Can you tell me what you mean by this statement.” The old man sighed and exclaimed: “At last one intelligent person has come along.” He then said: “My nafs (base inner-self) was urging me to commit sin. I was thus addressing my nafs that neither is my nafs my Allah that it has the right to command me, nor am I it's slave that I should obey it.”

Allah Ta’ala created the first human being, Hazrath Adam (A.S.), from sand. This was the beginning of the human species. The Qur’an has declared this in several  places. However, western scientists are still at pains to try and prove that their forefather was an ape. In their quest to fool others into believing the fallacy of evolution, they resort to the most deceptive means. Such is the deception that hundreds of people were walking around with the title of “Doctor” after having submitted a theses on a forgery!!!

Q&A: Gathering at the Home of the Deceased


Sunday, 06 January 2008 13:29

When a person passes away, many people gather at the home of the deceased for days after the funeral. Those who are present are made to read tasbeehs or recite from the Qur’an, etc., for the deceased. The family of the deceased also serve them with various things to eat. Is this correct?

The month of Muharram enjoys certain specific virtues, as compared to other months. Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) has described the fasts of this month in the following Hadith: “The best of fasts besides the month of Ramadhaan is the fasting of Allah’s month of Muharram, and best of Salaahs besides the fardh (obligatory Salaah) is the Tahajjud Salaah (performed after midnight) (Sahih Muslim).

Every fast in the month of Muharram is rewarded manifold by Allah Ta’ala. It is reported by Ibn Abbas (R.A.) that Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) said: “He who fasts on the day of Arafat, his fast will be a compensation for the sins of two years and the one who keeps a fast in the month of Muharram will receive the reward of thirty fasts for each fast (in the sacred month) (At-Targheeb Wat Tarheeb - Vol.2, pg.114).

Curse of Interest


Sunday, 06 January 2008 13:21

In a newspaper article titled: “What the banks don’t want you to know,” Karl Posel, mathematics professor and author of Personal Finance books says: “More than eight million South Africans have bonds, but few realise that banks are milking them dry.”

   “Consider the following scenario: you have a R100 000 bond repayable over 20 years at an interest rate of 19.5% a year. (Assume that this rate remains unchanged). After 10 years of monthly repayments of R1 660 you have paid R199 200 in total. Guess how much of your debt you have repaid after 10 years? A paltry R12 500. The remaining R186 700 has been nabbed by the bank as interest charges. And the situation after 16 years is even more depressing — of your total repayment of R318 720 you have paid off only R45 000 of your debt and still owe the bank   R55 000.”
