In the name of the Almighty Allah to Whom
belongs all praise, and salutations upon the best of humanity, Prophet
Muhammad (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam).
A spiritual season, which commenced with
the fragrant breezes of Rajab and Sha’baan, has now found
its climax in the splendour of Ramadan.
Ushering in this season of spiritual indulgence
are the angelic calls of “O Seeker of good, advance!”
and “O Seeker of evil, desist!”. (Tirmizi: The Chaper
Your Rabb declares: "Call unto
me, and I will answer you!"
All of a sudden, the devils are detained;
the doors of Jahannam are shut and the gates of Jannah are flung
wide open. The anthem for the season is the Qur’aan; the fragrance
is musk; and the scenery comes in hues of mercy, forgiveness and
emancipation from Jahannam.

crammed with ever more intrigue and adrenalin. Now to be aired Monday

and an omnibus on Sundays at 2pm. Shamseer is the town’s only
“consulting detective” better known as a private investigator.
Waseem is an inexperienced yet trained policeman. Shamseer’s
logical and independent mindset is often a cause of contention between
him and the Police Force of his town, which prevents him from officially
working with them and joining their team. Until a case, which only
logic and deduction will solve, crops up in town.

6 or 7, a budding orator from grade 8 or 9 and 3 debating protégés

The first step to change, is to believe that
we can change. Ramadan represents the season, precisely configured
to realise this: Progressing from being seasonal Muslims to lifelong
Muslims; graduating from selective faith to all-embracing submission.
May this Season of Change be the stepping
stone to your realisation of a change for all seasons. Aameen
