“The Department of Water and Sanitation did gazette the lifting of the water restrictions in Gauteng on 13 March and based on that gazette, therefore, the water restrictions in Gauteng are officially lifted,” announced Water and Sanitation department spokesperson Sputnik Ratau.

For many South Africans, this ends a cycle of despair that saw reservoirs dip low, dam levels plummeting, riverbeds becoming exposed, livestock perishing and food prices rocketing.

The angst was great and the concern genuine for all those bleak months wherein a dry future stared us in the face.

Water conservation and responsible behaviour were the buzzwords; we beseeched Allah in earnest, Salatul Istisqaa was organised and ‘Save Water’ notices appeared in our wudhu khanas and on mosque boards.

But now that the announcements have been made, changes have been gazetted and the dams are full, what should our approach be to these new realities? Read more

If there is tinsel or decorative paint on the forehead, or some sort of gum has been applied in such a way that the hair will not get wet properly, then the gum should be removed and the tinsel washed. If water does not reach under the gum but just flows over it, Ghusl will not be complete.

In 1973, I took a trip to Europe. We flew into Frankfurt, Germany. It was my first international flight, and the experience was incredible! My brother picked us up at the airport. He was in the Air Force, stationed at Ramstein. I noticed that every exit from the Autobahn led to Ausfarht. I thought I knew Germany pretty well, but this went on for miles and miles. I had never heard of a city named Ausfarht. Must have been a BIG place! So I asked my brother, "Wow, this Ausfarht must be a big place, what is it?" He answered, "Ausfarht means Exit!"
