"Why does the Tabligh Jamaat go mostly to Muslims?"
Why does Tabligh Jamaat preach, teach, talk, and walk amongst mostly Muslims. Firstly, many times the Tabligh Jamaat because of their conspicuous nature have to work and give Da'wah to non- Muslims. This happens at bus stops, railway platforms, airport areas and on the road.
Secondly, when someone is doing well in accordance to the Shari'ah, then allow them to carry on. No one is stopping one from giving Da'wah to non-Muslims provided one knows the Shar'i requirements and perimeters for this important responsibility. Thirdly, in the Shari'ah we have many examples to prove that teaching, learning and advising Muslims was done.
Every soul shall taste of death. (Surah Aale Imraan, Aayah 185)
Death is an inevitable event which no man can escape. It is accepted by both the believer and disbeliever. As far as a disbeliever is concerned he views death as a terminating factor which brings an abrupt end to his existence. As for a believer, he does not consider maut to be the end of life. Instead, he considers it to be the beginning of the second phase of the journey towards his ultimate abode - the Hereafter.

The incident of the people of the elephants occurred approximately fifty five days prior to the birth of Rasulullah (Salallahu Alaihi Wasallam). An entire Surah of the Qur'aan Shareef has been dedicated to this incident, the details of which have been recorded in the books of Tafseer, Hadith and Seerat.
The incident of the people of the elephants was in actual fact a divine declaration and a discreet sign indicating towards the imminent arrival of the seal of Prophets, the Final Messenger, Muhammad Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam. The divine protection which was extended to the Quraish was simply due to the fact that the final messenger, who was about to set foot on this earth, was to come from this very tribe (the Quraish). Otherwise, in terms of religious belief the Emperors of Abyssinia and Yemen were better than the Quraish of Makkah Mukarramah, as they were the people of the book while the Quraish were idolaters.
Q: I am a doctor and one of the things which I could end up doing is a medical procedure called thoracotomy, which is opening a man's chest and decompressing his heart to bring him back to life, but to do this procedure one needs to practise on pig's chest. Being a Muslim, is it permissible to touch and cut open pigs? I am confused because if I get trained, I could save a human life.
Q: We are 3 children. My eldest brother disowned my parents and gave them no financial support. My second brother provided for our parents, mum had passed on and 11 months later he was shot and killed. He had bought shares in my dad's name. My late brother had told me on the night before he was shot and killed, that if anything happened to him, our father was provided for financially and he must live with me until his death. My father had used the money from the shares while alive. He has passed on and according to his will he made me sole heir of the remaining shares. Am I supposed to give my elder brother a share even though my father has not included his name in the will? If I am to share it, can it be divided equally and does my deceased brother's 30 year old daughter inherit too?
Q: Is a Walima (post marriage eating) compulsory, and if so, what do we serve the people to eat? Is tea and cake ok or must it be cooked food?
