(Summary of Mufti Ebrahim Salejee’s majlis (Saturday 1st December)
The Arabs did not have the knowledge of heavenly and divine scriptures. Hence, when Nabi (sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) informed them of his nubuwwat, they sent a delegation to the Jews enquiring whether the rasuls (messengers) that had come before, were men or angels. The Jews replied that they were men. So their minds were clear that all rasuls were men like us. And they had to be men and not angels, for if they were angels, then angels do not get tired etc. So how will they be able to understand human life?

(Summary of Mufti Ebrahim Salejee’s majlis (Saturday 17th November)
Amongst the weaknesses of man is ‘hubb-ud-dunya’ which is regarded as the root of all sins. However, we need to understand what ‘hubb-ud-dunya’ is. Ebrahim (alaihis salaam) had made this du`aa: “Rabbij`al hazal balada aamina” (O my Lord! Make this town safe.) Seeking safety and security for one’s family is not incorrect. A Nabi has a comprehensive understanding of this life and the next. So his du`aa will be most comprehensive as well.

(Summary of Mufti Ebrahim Salejee’s majlis (Saturday 10th November)
It appears in a maxim, “Live your life for Deen as if you will die tomorrow and live your life for the world as if you will live forever.” What this actually means is that when it comes to matters of Sharee’ah, then there is no chance of delay in discharging our duties. What needs to be done, should be accomplished immediately, as though you feel that you will die tomorrow.

(Summary of Mufti Ebrahim Salejee’s majlis (Saturday 3rd November)
Allah Ta`ala speaks of Yusuf (alaihis salaam) being bestowed with `ilm (knowledge) and hukm (wisdom) when he had reached of age. However, there is a famous maxim that states, “The lesson is not confined to the situation under discussion but it is general.” Hence, the bestowing of knowledge and wisdom is not confined to Yusuf (alaihis salaam), but Allah Ta`ala explains further that this is how He rewards the muhsineen – the righteous. Hence, if we also desire the same then we will have to adopt righteousness and piety.

(Summary of Mufti Ebrahim Salejee’s majlis (Saturday 13th October)
Imaam Shaafi`ee (rahmatullahi alaih) is reported to have said that it is better to undergo temporary disgrace by asking a question than to remain ignorant. It is the system of Allah Ta`ala that there will always be two classes of people; those who know and those who don’t know. It is the duty of those who do not know to ask and enquire. The benefit of asking is that one is clear and confident about what he is doing, whilst the consequence of not enquiring is that one will always be stormed with doubts and unclarity regarding certain aspects. We generally confine our queries and questions to matters that relate to our outer-selves, whereas Deen applies to the inner-self as well. Sahaabah (radhiyallahu anhum) would enquire regarding aspects of ikhlaas etc. These are all related to the inner-self. Hence, there is a need to refer to the mashaayikh for one’s spiritual reformation as well.

(Summary of Mufti Ebrahim Salejee’s majlis (Saturday 6th October)
A Muslim’s entire life is a dawat (invitation). This is not restricted to any situation; instead every action of his should be a dawat. Just as there are conditions for all other ibaadat and acts of worship, likewise there are conditions for inviting towards Islam. One should not adopt such an approach that would turn people away. The Qur’aan Shareef even advises us that in the process of us inviting we should not pick out the religions of others for they will in turn pick out on Islam.

(Summary of Mufti Ebrahim Salejee’s majlis (Saturday 29th September)
The Sahaabah (radhiyallahu anhum) were open and direct with Nabi (sallallahu alaihi wasallam). They never concealed anything from Nabi (sallallahu alaihi wasallam). This is borne out in the incident of Jaabir (radhiyallahu anhu) on their return with Nabi (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) from a battle.

(Summary of Mufti Ebrahim Salejee’s majlis (Saturday 22th September)
In principle, the Qur’aan and Hadeeth do not discuss matters of physics or geography etc. If there is any aayat or hadeeth in this regard then it is not for the purpose of explaining any aspect of physics, instead it is on account of the shar`ee law that is related to it. For example, the year having 12 months etc. is discussed because of the shar`ee laws of Hajj, roza, zakaat etc. that are linked to it. Amongst these twelve months are four that are sacred in the sight of Allah Ta`ala. They are Zul Qa`dah, Zul Hijjah, Muharram and Rajab.

(Summary of Mufti Ebrahim Salejee’s majlis (Saturday 15th September)
When Abdullah bin Salaam (radhiyallahu anhu) wished to accept Islam, he presented several questions to Nabi (sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) and explained that he required clarity on several issues before accepting Islam. The reason for this was that if he still had doubts regarding Islam and then accepted Islam, he would not have been able to benefit from Nabi (sallallahu alaihi wa sallam).

(Summary of Mufti Ebrahim Salejee’s majlis (Saturday 8th September)
In the time of Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam), when many tribes and clans began to accept Islam, it was practically impossible to send someone to every place to teach them deen. Hence, the tribe would send a delegation comprising of their intelligent and understanding ones to Madinah Munawwarah. They would live there in the environment of deen for some time, learn the essentials of deen and then return to their people.
