The Real Solution


Monday, 01 July 2013 11:26

“I have a problem!” This is arguably among the most common complaint in any day. From stress and anxiety to chronic illnesses, from cash-flow problems to abject poverty, from petty domestic disputes to family feuds and worst of all minor sins to blatantly trampling the laws of Allah Ta‘ala – almost everyone has some problem. Is there any solution – a solution that can make one feel content even in poverty and grateful even in sickness. Is there a solution to the raging infernos in many homes and to the blazing fires in many hearts? … Yes. The solution is called Taqwa.

I don’t have my ‘Eid Clothes yet!


Thursday, 27 June 2013 08:39

“The last ten days are already here. I haven’t found my ‘eid clothes as yet! I walked from one side of the mall to the other … shop to shop till I dropped … You name it and I saw it. One whole day got wasted in Overport … forget an outfit, I didn’t even find a decent cloak. I got my last chance … I might get lucky at the ‘Eid Fair. As for these two ‘scamps’, I just don’t know what I am going to do for their second outfit. Don’t talk about their ‘eid pyjamas. I can’t understand how I am going to manage to finish my khatam, and still do all the baking. ‘Eid is at my mother-in-law’s place this year.” 

Does this ring a bell? We need not waste our Ramadhaan in this way. Let us try to complete our errands before Ramadhaan and keep ourselves as free as possible. In this way we can maximise on the ‘great bargains’ that have been promised in this ‘mega sale’.

Happily Ever After!


Thursday, 27 June 2013 09:04

A successful marriage lasts happily ever after. It thrives on correct behaviour and ethical conduct. This in turn is influenced by correct thinking. Therefore correct thinking and attitude play a big role in preparing for the big day and the new life ahead. The lives of the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) were a perfect example of correct thought and an Islamic mindset.  

There lived a man by the name of Julaibeeb (radhiyallahu ‘anhu). He was an ordinary man by worldly standards. He was not endowed with the charm and allure that other men had, nor did he hold the social standing that the noble would enjoy. But … he was a man of Imaan and a Companion of Nabi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). This was an attribute that far superseded any worldly disadvantage.

Too many Cooks Spoil the Broth!


Thursday, 27 June 2013 11:41

Ever wondered what in the world that meant? Especially when you walk into a world class buffet and take in the spread of food. Hot and cold cereals and porridges, freshly baked rolls and breads of countless varieties stacked neatly in wicker baskets, pastries, crepes, crumpets, pancakes and waffles artistically piled up with every accompaniment you could imagine: cream, cinnamon sugar, honey, syrups, jams, pastes and spreads. The ice layer at the end of the room invites you to freshly squeezed juices and “smoothies” whizzed in front of you in flavours and varieties you may never have heard of (cucumber and mint, pear and banana, pineapple and black grape ...). 

As though cleverly designed, unsuspectingly the aroma of freshly ground coffee of the finest Arabica and Robusta blend pulls and lugs you to the tea and coffee station where international varieties introduce themselves to you for the first time.
