THE MESSAGE
RAPE REFLECTIONS

By Umm Abdillah - Radio Islam Programming

As more horrific statistics of rape and brutality against the vulnerable in our country come to the fore it is obvious we face an undeclared war. It is not enough to voice solidarity with the recruiting agencies of disgust, repugnance, hashtags, placards, marches or colour-coded outfits, but a closer examination of how we’ve got here, as well as the implementation of the very least to rid this evil from the water and soil that nurtures our roots.

‘No context and no degree of suffering and humiliation justify rape or other forms of abuse. In every context – the drunken party; the possibility for impunity that comes with the power of the police officer, the priest, the boss, the professor or the rich man; the corrosive desperation of poverty - there are men who don't rape and men who oppose rape. There is always a choice.’ [From Delhi to Bredasdorp - Richard Pithouse]

Islam has a clear stance on this issue. Rape is Haraam. The punishment for rape in Islam is severe and misinformation about victims having to provide four witnesses to pronounce sentencing against the rapist needs repelling. Likewise within some cultures women are forced to marry their rapists. While Islam does allow for flexibility with regards cultural norms, these cease when those norms contradict or subvert the sacredness of its core belief system. As such, marriage is a union of togetherness based on mutual love and congruence. Compelling a rape victim (as done in some cultures) to be married to her attacker is the antithesis to the purpose of marriage in Islam, hence reprehensible.

An Islamic court has the option to sentence a rapist to one of four punishments: ‘…killed, or crucified, or their hands and their feet be cut off from opposite sides, or be exiled from the land… Al Qur’an 5:33.’ read more

FIQH
Fard (compulsory) acts of Wudu

There are four Fard acts in Wudu:-

1. To wash the entire face once.

2. To wash both hands upto and including the elbows once.

3. To make Masah of one-quarter of the head once.

4. To wash both feet upto and including the ankles once.

These are the Fard acts of Wudu. Even if one of these acts is left out, or even if a place equal to a hair's breadth is left dry, Wudu will not be complete.

POEM
As the world slumbered,
There was a man,
Who stayed awake in Prayers,
Not any kind of man,
But a man for the Nations,
Sent by the Creator of the Universe,
As an example and a guide,
For the Ummah…
He was Muhammad Salallahu ‘alaihi wassalam.

He loved his Creator,
His time was spent in ‘Ibadaat,
His time was spent in Da’wah,
For the Ummah to follow the path of truth,
The path of Siratal mustaqueem,
Not the path of those who has gone astray,
Leaving all falsehood,
And idolatry…
He was Muhammad Salallahu ‘alaihi wassalam.

He left us with guidance,
And a Book; the Quran
So as not to fall prey of shaitwaan,
And whoever follows his Sunnah,
Will not be amongst the losers,
And he is certainly the best role model,
That the world has ever known,
And the last Messenger,
He is Muhammad Salallahu ‘alaihi wassalam.

PAPERLESS

Kids have a greater need for speed than classroom computers can deliver. Impatient to turn in his term paper, one restless student kept clicking the "Print" command. The printer started to churn out copy after copy of the kid's ten-page report. The topic? "Save Our Trees."
