Tabligh to Muslims

Published by Council of Ulama Eastern Cape on Thursday, 15 December 2011

"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.

Death

Published by Council of Ulama Eastern Cape on Wednesday, 14 December 2011

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.
