Capitalism is Failing Us

By Naseerah Nanabhai

Radio Islam spoke to Muhammed Yesilhark, the trustee of the U.K. National Zakaah Fund, to answer to understand why Capitalism has failed globally.

According to Yesihark, Capitalism as a system has not lived up to its promises and this has become a glaring fact for all economists and therefore opening the door to other possibilities and "time to change the rules."

He explained that to bridge the divide between rich and poor and that Islam teaches us to take a problem and break it down to the core. When doing this, we reach two fundamental problems - the problem of interest and the non-availability of zakat. These come from two forces that underpin capitalism. read more...

Bleeding Nose During Fasting

Question: A person’s nose starting bleeding while fasting and he swallowed some blood, will the fast break?

Answer: The nose bleeding in itself will not break the fast, however, the swallowing of blood will. The person will be required to make a Qadha (make up fast) for this day.

And Allah Knows Best

Don't Mess With Mature Ladies

A mature (over 40) lady gets pulled over for speeding...

Woman: Is there a problem, Officer?
Officer: Ma'am, you were speeding.

Woman: Oh, I see.
Officer: Can I see your license please?

Woman: I'd give it to you but I don't have one.
Officer: Don't have one?

Woman: Lost it, 4 years ago for drunk driving.
Officer: I see...Can I see your vehicle registration papers please.

Woman: I can't do that.
Officer: Why not?

Woman: I stole this car.
Officer: Stole it?

Woman: Yes, and I killed and hacked up the owner.
Officer: You what?

Woman: His body parts are in plastic bags in the trunk if you want to see.

The Officer looks at the woman and slowly backs away to his car and calls for back up. Within minutes 5 police cars circle the car. A senior officer slowly approaches the car, clasping his half drawn gun.

Officer 2: Ma'am, could you step out of your vehicle please!
The woman steps out of her vehicle.

Woman: Is there a problem sir?
Officer 2: One of my officers told me that you have stolen this car and murdered the owner.

Woman: Murdered the owner?
Officer 2: Yes, could you please open the trunk of your car, please.
The woman opens the trunk, revealing nothing but an empty trunk.

Officer 2: Is this your car, ma'am?
Woman: Yes, here are the registration papers. The officer is quite stunned.

Officer 2: One of my officers claims that you do not have a driving license.
The woman digs into her handbag and pulls out a clutch purse and hands it to the officer.
The officer examines the license. He looks quite puzzled.

Officer 2: Thank you ma'am, one of my officers told me you didn't have a license, that you stole this car, and that you murdered and hacked up the owner.
Woman: Bet the liar told you I was speeding, too.
