The Gang Rape Story - The Question No One is Asking

By Moulana Sulaimaan Ravat

South Africans reacted with shock and outrage to the news that seven young men had not only gang raped a mentally disabled girl, but had the audacity to video the horrific scenes of a helpless girl pleading for mercy whilst the youngsters cheered each other on.

Every media house ran the story, some claiming that a second video of the girl being gang raped existed, others highlighting claims that the mother of the girl was guilty of neglect and had not reported the girl missing. Even CNN gave coverage to the issue as its second lead story.

There was an outpouring of outrage with many asking questions such as “What kind of a society do we live in?” “What is happening to our country?”
However they all missed the point in my opinion! Everyone seemed to be focusing on the “how” but no one seemed to be asking “WHY”?

Why would a human being do this to a defenseless girl? Why would they spur each other on, video the heinous deed and boast about it by forwarding the clip? Why would a human being want to watch such a clip and search for it on the internet, and share it with friends?

Joan van Niekerk of Childline was very appreciative when I posed the "WHY" to her at the onset of a Radio Islam interview on the issue. She spoke about the lack of respect for the law, lack of respect for fellow human beings, physical, emotional and sexual violence in the home, deficient parenting, glamorization of violence, and an ineffective and inadequate response system as some of the contributing factors to such behavior.

She however stressed that primarily two factors were at play here: The need for instant gratification and no fear of accountability.

As she was expounding on her views, a number of thoughts started to race through my mind. What share of the blame should society shoulder? Is a hedonistic lifestyle not promoted in the movies we watch, the heroes we worship, the magazines we read and the dominant ideologies of the day?
Is this not the same society that ridicules the concept of modesty, scoffs at those who believe in the hereafter, and laughs at those that claim that there is a God who is omnipresent and rewards for good and punishes for evil?

Is it no wonder then, that a fourteen year old will do whatever it takes to achieve instant gratification,as long as he can escape the law of the land?

Is this the price that society is starting to pay for promoting a free lifestyle, accepting an agnostic approach to life and making material progress the ultimate and in the process eroding the marital relationship, family structure and basic human morals and values?

Did Nabi SAW not warn 1400 years ago "When modesty is abandoned, each of you will do as he pleases!"? Is it not better when the Creator determines what is right and wrong rather than to leave it to the discretion of man? Is firm belief in the hereafter not the only mechanism that holds a person in check, reminding him that even if you get away with wrongful behavior in this temporary world, you will have to stand before your Creator and give account in the everlasting afterlife?

Are such beliefs and morals not the solution to the contributing factors mentioned by the likes of Joan van Niekerk?

I recently read a very apt quote: “Living in a twisted world is painful. The greater pain though is that we accept & conform to the twists rather than straighten them out.”

If modern society does not rea
lize its folly in changing the system of Allah, there will be no end to the consequences!


Abul-Fiqh, Imaam Shafi`i RA

Muhammad ibn Idris ibn al-`Abbas, al-Imam al-Shafi`i, Abu `Abd Allah al-Shafi`i al-Hijazi al-Qurashi al-Hashimi al-Muttalibi (d. 204), the offspring of the House of the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam), the peerless one of the great Mujtahid Imams and jurisprudent par excellence, the scrupulously pious ascetic and Friend of Allah, he laid down the foundations of Fiqh in his Risala, which he said he revised and re-read four hundred times, then said: "Only Allah’s Book is perfect and free from error."

He was born in Ghazza or `Asqalan in 150, the year of Imaam Abu Hanifa’s RA death, and moved to Makkah at the age of two, following his father’s death, where he grew up. He was early a skillful archer, then he took to learning language and poetry until he gave himself to Fiqh, beginning with Hadith. He memorized the Qur’an at age seven, then Malik’s Muwatta’ at age ten, at which time his teacher would deputize him to teach in his absence. At age thirteen he went to see Malik, who was impressed by his memory and intelligence.

Malik ibn Anas and Muhammad ibn al-Hasan al-Shaybani were among his most prominent teachers and he took position against both of them in Fiqh. Al-Shafi`i said: "From Muhammad ibn al-Hasan I wrote a camel-load." Al-Hakim narrated from `Abd Allah ibn `Abd al-Hakam: "Al-Shafi`i never ceased to speak according to Malik’s position and he would say: ‘We do not differ from him other than in the way of his companions,’ until some young men spoke unbecomingly at length behind his back, whereupon al-Shafi`i resolved to put his differences with Malik in writing. Otherwise, his whole life he would say, whenever asked something: ‘This is what the Teacher said’ - hâdha qawl al-ustadh - meaning Malik."

Like Imaam Abu Hanifa RA and al-Bukhari RA, he recited the entire Qur’an each day at prayer, and twice a day in the month of Ramadan.

Ibn Rahuyah described him in Makkah as wearing bright white clothes with an intensely black beard. Al-Za`farani said that when he was in Baghdad in the year 195 he dyed his beard with henna.

Abu `Ubayd al-Qasim ibn Sallam said: "If the intelligence of an entire nation was brought together he would have encompassed it." Similarly, al-Muzani said: "I have been looking into al-Shafi`i’s Risala for fifty years, and I do not recall a single time I looked at it without learning some new benefit."

Imaam Ahmad related by his students Abu Talib and Humayd ibn Zanjuyah to say: "I never saw anyone adhere more to hadith than al-Shafi`i. No-one preceded him in writing down the hadith in a book." Imma Ahmad ibn Hanbal also said: "Not one of the scholars of hadith touched an inkwell nor a pen except he owed a huge debt to al-Shafi`i."

Al-Shafi`i was known for his peculiar strength in Arabic language, poetry, and philology. Bayhaqi narrated: read more

"The secret of happiness is the realization that life is a gift, not a right." Once we understand this axiom of life, our perspective on everything changes.

The elderly aunt bent down and asked her three-year-old nephew: "Can you tell me the name of your new baby sister?"

The little boy shook his head sadly and replied: "I don't know what it is. I keep asking her but I can't understand a word she says."
