At the same time, it slammed those who had misused the opportunity to criticise the MJC and reiterated that the products it had certified as halal was indeed fit for Muslim consumption.

    Islam and Climate Change 2

    Published by Voice of the Cape on Saturday, 26 November 2011
    The following khutbah sent out by the Muslim Judicial Council coincides with SA's hosting this week of the COP17 on climate change. It was drafted by Shaykh Dr Ridwaan Gallant, member of the Muslim Judicial Council and member of the Southern African Faith Communities' Environment Institute. The 17th United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP 17), will be held in Durban from 28 November -  9 December.

    KHUTBAH FEATURE Part 2 - As Muslims we must fulfill acts that Allah has demanded from us in terms of salah, zakah, fasting and haj - acts of worshipping Allah. Every good act done for the sake of Allah is an act of worship. This includes protecting the environment. As Allah states in the Quran: "And I (Allah) created not the Jinn and Mankind except that they should worship Me (Alone)."

    Muharram Mubarak!

    Saturday sees Muslims in South Africa mark the first day of a new lunar year, 1433, an event that is generally regarded as a period of introspection, reflection and spiritual renewal. As such, it stands in stark contrast to the celebration of the Gregorian New Year which is still five weeks away and is marked with great celebration and revelry.

    In its Muharram message, the Muslim Judicial Council (MJC) expressed its good wishes to all Muslims throughout the world, with a special emphasis on those experiencing trying times, such as the countries who are still caught in the turmoil of the Arab Spring.

    Haj accountability critical

    Published by Voice of the Cape on Thursday, 24 November 2011
    Given this year's haj visa debacle, it was clear that the local haj industry needed the highest level of accountability, effectiveness and proficiency both from those who service the industry and the pilgrims seeking to fulfill the fifth pillar of Islam. Speaking upon his return from this year's haj conference held in Makkah earlier this month, deputy president of the Muslim Judicial Council (MJC), Sheik Igsaan Taliep emphasised that there could be absolutely no compromising on these values.
