Start 2021 on a Good Note, Spend Wisely Borrow Wisely!

By Faizel Patel

It is that time of the year where some consumers will feel like Januworry is three months long because of their financial situation. Unfortunately, some consumers are currently finding it difficult to meet their financial obligations such as school fees, school uniform, transport, rent, etc. Consumers who might need to borrow money or take out credit should read and understand their credit agreements before signing, says Ms. Anne-Carien Du Plooy, Acting Manager: Education and Communication at the National Credit Regulator (NCR). According to the National Credit Act, consumers have a right to receive information in a plain and understandable language and to receive reasons from the credit provider if their application is declined. read more

Reading Social Messages In The Toilet

Question:  Is it permissible to read WhatsApp messages in the toilet?

Answer: One should abstain from using the mobile phone in the toilet, as reading and talking in the toilet are against the Islamic ettiquettes of using the toilet. [Hashiyatut Thahtaw 54]

Furthermore, these days, Islamic content is also circulated on WhatsApp and social media. By reading messages in the the toilet, there is a possibility that the name of Allah, verses of the Quraan, Ahadith, etc may be exposed in the toilet, which is prohibited.

And Allah Knows Best
