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


By Shaykh Mawlānā Muhammad Saleem Dhorat DB

Islamic Da’wah Academy, Leicester, UK

The South African Muslim community is gearing up to vote in the next few weeks. The political parties have been campaigning in earnest for some time, outlining their policies and stressing their commitments to the nation. With less than a few days left before polling day, Muslims should be asking themselves what commitments they have made when it comes to casting their votes.

Shaykh Mawlānā Muhammad Saleem Dhorat DB delivered a lecture to the Muslims of Britain during their election period. Containing valuable advice for the Muslim voter the lecture was summarised.

The Secret of Success
Allah  has placed the desire for progress, and the spirit of mutual competitiveness that accompanies it, into the very nature of man. It is natural for individuals and communities to strive to better themselves and achieve progress. As Muslims, we should open the pages of history and discover and adopt those factors which make a nation prosperous, as long as they fall within the bounds of the Sharee‘ah, so that we too can reap the Deeni and worldly benefits of progress. read more

Sayyadatina Aayeshah Radiyallahu Anha says: "Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam liked the Dhiraa, the back portion of the meat. This was not because of its tastiness, but because meat was only available occasionally, and this portion of the meat cooked quickly. Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam also liked it as it saved time and he could return quickly to his commitments". (TIRMIZI)

Commentary: In the narration, it is stated that Sayyidina Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam liked the Dhiraa part of the meat. It is possible there were many reasons for him liking this portion. Among them is also the one related by Sayyiditina Aayeshah Radiyallahu Anha.
