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.


Inspirational Reality: (“To the sisters in Gaza - I am ashamed”), Sister!

I live in a house, I want to renovate.
Yours was bombed and bulldozed; now you live in a tent.

I need a new car, trade the old one away.
You lost your feet in a bombing yesterday.

I sleep so cozy and warm in a king sized bed.
You find comfort in the cold hard floor instead.

Something doesn't work out I'll complain to everyone.
While you hide your tears when you lose someone.

My freezer is full with samoosas and pies.
Your tummy sounds are muffled by rockets and cries.

I open my fast with plenty food in my plate.
You are thankfull for that single date.

I do some chores my back is sore.
You lost your sons your pain is much more.

My Eid clothes are bought, a few thousands are gone.
You were forced to leave with the clothes you had on.

I need a few holidays throughout the year.
You won't abandon your land despite the fear.

I have everything yet I still want more.
You just want peace, the end of this one sided war.

Despite all this you’re closer to Allah than I'll ever be.
So I am ashamed sister, ashamed of being me!

Sadaqatul Fitr or Zakaatul Fitr is also known as Zakat on the Person, Zakat of Ramadan or Zakat Fitri. Zakaatul Fitr was obliged in the second year of Hijrah, the same year that fasting in Ramadan was made obligatory. Zakaatul Fitr is prescribed as a means of purification for the person who fasts, redressing wrong deeds and undesirable words uttered during fasting. Zakat is also a relief-aid to the needy.

Zakaatul Fitr is an obligation on the person and his dependents such as his wife, children who have not reached maturity and parents. If he is unable to pay Zakaatul Fitr for himself and/or his dependents due to certain difficulties, his dependents may pay Zakaatul Fitr for themselves and/or for him with his permission. What is important is that Zakaatul Fitr payment has been made for every individual.

The value of Fitrah is calculated as per 1.875 Kg or 2.32 Kg of wheat, rice, or dates. I.e. R19.00 for Hanafi and R24.00 for Shaafi.

The Fitrah must be paid before the day of Eid.

Now, some would find this amusing...


A woman is worried about an older woman, a widow, who lives in the apartment next door. She hasn't heard anything from her for a few days. So she tells her son, "I want you to go next door and see how old Mrs. Pierpoint is."

A few minutes later the boy returns.

"Well, is she all right?" the mother asks.

"She is fine, but she's annoyed with you," he says.

"At me, whatever for?"

"Well," says her son, "Mrs. Pierpoint told me it's none of your business how old she is."
