May Allah (SWT) grant us and all the Marhoomeen Forgiveness and Jannatul Firdaus (Aameen)



It is Narrated in a Hadeeth: "Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) was the most generous of all people, and he used to reach the peak of generosity in the month of Ramadhan. Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) was the most generous person, even more generous than a strong uncontrollable wind (in readiness and haste to do charitable deeds)." BUKHARI

As the biting cold billows through, rattling our bones this winter, we appeal to our Radio Islam listeners & kind family to donate just R100 (or more) to supply a jacket to a needy child as part of our “Soul Warmers” project. Contact Hafiz Safwan Khan at or call us on 011 854 7022 to further extend the prophetic call to generosity.

Radio Islam... Help us to warm a soul this Ramadhaan.



Guest Contributor, Saajida Malvina Padia highlights the double standards we use when addressing acts of terrorism, and how we’re being played on the massive colonial chessboard.

Africa is a vast continent rich not only in natural resources but has fertile land and ideal weather patterns for good plantations. Eurasian and American countries are affected by climate change especially the developed world wherein they have developed so steadily that farming and farms are uncommon.

Food shortage is a serious concern for these countries; hence former colonies want to maintain a strong-hold on the African continent. One of their foremost strategies is the divide-and-rule method. The difference between the first scramble in the 17th century, and now in the 21st century is their motive to use African military or African agents who will intervene directly, as in Libya or Egypt, wherein the agents or military personnel benefit financially. In other words, Africans would be doing their dirty work. Too many European and American soldiers have been killed in Iraq and Afghanistan. This is of great concern to these imperial states as they are losing popularity, thus the western powers are looking for different methods to achieve their goals to win back the leverage once attained through financial power. read more

It is Makruh (undesirable) to cleanse the teeth with tooth-paste whilst fasting. If any of these things go down the throat, the fast will break. It is permissible to clean the teeth with a Miswaak. This is irrespective of whether it is a dry Miswaak or a fresh one. If the Miswaak is obtained from a tree and one perceives it's bitterness in the mouth, it will not be Makruh to use such a Miswaak.

Had other business to conduct: “I was interviewing someone who took a cell-phone call and asked me to leave my office while they talked.”

He was a fugitive: “The candidate said that by crossing the Maryland state line he was in violation of his probation but felt the interview was worth risking possible jail time.”

Got a little too comfortable: “A candidate complained that she was feeling hot. She then said ‘Excuse me’ and removed her socks. After placing them on the desk, she continued as if everything was normal.”
