OF THE MONTH

A man was driving down the

road when a policeman

stopped him. The ofcer

looked in the back of the man’s

truck and said, “Why are these

penguins in your truck?”

The man replied, “These are

my penguins. They belong to

me.”

“You need to take them to the

zoo,” the policeman said. The

next day, the ofcer saw the

same guy driving down the

road. He pulled him over

again. He saw the penguins

were still in the truck, but they

were wearing sunglasses this

time. “I thought I told you to

take these penguins to the

zoo!”, the ofcer said.

“I did,” the man replied. “And

today I’m taking them to the

beach."

EXPERIENCING

DETACHMENT

FROM ALLAH DURING

INTERVALS BETWEEN

THE 5 DAILY PRAYERS

The ‘abd (of Allah) experiences times of heedlessness,

detachment (from Allah), hardening of the heart,

disregarding mistakes, and disposes towards sinning

during the intervals between the ve daily prayers. This

deplorable change takes him away from his Lord and

prevents him from being near to Him and alienates him

from his position as the (true) ‘abd of Allah. Even worse,

he may willingly deliver himself to his enemy (i.e. Satan)

who captures him, puts him in chains and locks him in

the prison of his base-desires, causing him to experience

nothing but anxiety, grief, sorrow, and regret while being

unaware of the reason behind his wretched condition. It

is through the Mercy of his Lord, the Most

C o m p a s s i o n a t e , w h o d e c r e e d u p o n h i m a

comprehensive act of worship made up of diverse phases

and formats; each phase and format corresponds to the

different actions he committed and conditions he

experienced outside the salah. More so, it is designed so

that the goodness and benet he acquires from each

phase is in a measure proportionate to his needs, as this

act of worship (i.e. salah) is prescribed to demonstrate

his servitude to Allah.

At Vision So Many Dreams Are Waiting To Be Realised

DISCUSSION

ON WUDU

Wudu is the prescribed ritual whereby dirt and lth are

cleansed and removed so Allah’s believing slave may

stand pure in His presence. The effect of wudu that

manifests itself outwardly is the cleansing of the body

and the limbs used in the act of worship (salah). The

inward effect on the other hand, is subtle, as it has to do

with the purication of the heart from its sins through

repentance. The two aspects of wudu are inscribed in the

statement of Allah, Most High: “Indeed, Allah loves those

who are constantly repentant and loves those who purify

themselves.” (Al-Baqarah 2:222).

He links repentance with purity, and the statement of the

Prophet (SAW): “O Allah, make me among those who

turn to You in repentance and make me among those

who are puried.”

Allah prescribed for us to supplicate to be among the

cleansed and among the repentant ones.

Allah therefore, perfected for His believing ‘abd degree

and layers of purity and servitude (to Him); inwardly and

outwardly at every stratum; bearing witness that there is

no ilah worthy of worship except Allah and that

Muhammad is His Messenger puries him from disbelief

and polytheism, turning to Him in repentance puries

him from sins, and using water in wudu puries him from

visible lth.

Vision Has Been Making Children Smile Since 1991

AWESOME

QURAN FACTS:

PROPHET

MUHAMMAD (SAW)

AT MADINA

1. MIGRATION TO MADINA

The deaths of the Prophet’s wife

Khadija and his uncle in the 10th

year of prophethood encouraged

the enemy to persecute him.

Nevertheless, the Prophet (SAW)

continued to successfully convey

the message of Islam. This

infuriated the Quraysh, for Islam

was now also taking root in

Madina. Determined to crush the

movement at all costs, they nally

resolved to kill the Prophet. But

before that, Allah, having a

d i f f e r e n t p l a n f o r h i m ,

commanded him to leave for

Madina. The Prophet (SAW),

therefore, accompanied by Abu

Bakr, left Makkah for Madina in the

13th year of prophethood.

2. A WARM WELCOME

AT MADINA

As the Prophet and Abu Bakr

approached Madina, the people

gathered, eager to greet them.

Everyone wanted the Prophet to be

his guest. Finally, at Allah’s behest,

he stayed with Abu Ayyub Ansari.

Here, the Prophet spoke not of

revenge, but spreading peace,

love and humanity. Those who

accompanied him, the Muhajir,

were treated as brothers and

sisters by the muslims of Madina,

the Ansar, who even shared their

possessions with them. The

Prophet’s journey from Makkah to

Madina - the Hijrah, or migration -

was the rst real step towards the

worldwide spread of Islam.

3. BATTLES AT MADINA

The Prophet’s (SAW) departure to

Madina made the Quraysh much

angrier. They did not want them to

work in peaceful conditions. They

now saw that the muslims were all

gathering in one place, and

becoming increasingly stronger in

the process, and so they resolved

to wage war and crush them

altogether. Consequently, they

fought several battles with the

muslims during this short period of

time. Most prominent of the battles

of them were Badr, Uhud and the

Trench.

VISION URGENTLY

NEEDS YOU!!!

TO SPONSOR ADVERTISING SPACE

Ever since we candidly let it be known to our readers and

supporters that although demand for our magazine is

increasing, the budget for this Advertiser is very limited.

However, we have been overwhelmed by the generous

and kind contributions made by our sisters and brothers

in Islam over the past 30 years. It is obvious should more

people sponsor advertising space in our monthly

publication, then a larger number of the Vision

Advertiser can be made available to meet the demand.

We, as a children’s home, regret not being able to

express our gratitude to you for your generous support,

separately and individually, as we do not have the full

details of many of our contributors, namely those who

have preferred to remain anonymous, and it would be

impossible for us to cope with the volume of work

involved. It is with this in mind that Vision Child and

Youth Care Center extends our sincere appreciation to

all those who have contributed to making this

publication possible. So, whoever you are and wherever

you may be, we want to thank you for your much needed

support of the past, and trust you will again be as

generous in the future. By now you must have realized

that we cannot do without community support, it sure

means more to our residents than you can ever tell.

Remember, caring for children is everybody’s business.

May Allah reward us all with His mercy at our side. We

extend our warm greetings to all our readers.

HOSTING

PARENTS

REQUIRED

Vision Child and Youth Care Centre is in dire need of suitable hosting parents

to host our young residents over weekends, public holidays, school holidays as

well as over the two Eids. Day hosting will also be appreciated.

Hosting means external life to our residents and would be an advantage as

most of them lack that experience. This would mean finding meaning in life

regardless of their age. Hosting is an opportunity to positively affect the child

by being part of their growth and development. It allows those that are

orphaned and those without any close relatives to have an opportunity to

experience and see how other families function. You are given the opportunity

to make others happy so that you may benefit from the atmosphere of

happiness and joy. We all have a responsibility towards the children in our

communities and this would be your golden opportunity to give back and bring

much joy and meaning to young lives.

THE MOST

IMPORTANT

QUALITY OF

A PERSON

Here we come to the most

important quality or characteristic

of an individual. For many people in

today’s world, the most important

characteristic of a person is the

colour of his skin, whether he is

black, white or brown. For others, it

is his economic, social or political

situation - whether his is rich or

poor, whether he is ruler or ruled,

oppressor or oppressed. For some

people, the most important fact

about a person is his place of birth

and the language he speaks, his

nation or his “tribe”. For others, a

person’s main characteristic is his

social standing - whether he is

regarded as an aristocrat, a

middle-class bourgeois, or a

working class individual. The most

important characteristic of a

person, however, is none of these.

In Islam a person’s language or

colour, has no social, economic, or

political signicance. They are

merely signs of the creative power

of God to enable people to

recognise one another. The most

important characteristic of a person

is whether he is a believer in God or

not. Confronted with the full reality

of existence, a person in complete

k n o w l e d g e a n d a w a r e n e s s

acknowledges his dependence on

the Creator for life and guidance.

Such a person is described as a

believer in God. The Arabic word

for belief is “Imaan”. It literally

means “to know”, “to believe”, “to

be convinced beyond the least

shadow of a doubt”. It does not

mean blind, irrational belief. The

Arabic word for believer is

“Mu’min”. A Mu’min is one who

knows and reposes unshakeable

belief in the unity of God, in His

attributes, in His law and guidance

revealed to the prophets and in the

Divine code of just recompense, of

reward and punishment. Without

Imaan there can be no true and

complete Islam. On the other hand,

a p e r s o n w h o r e f u s e s t o

acknowledge his dependence on

the Creator or indeed the existence

of a Creator is described as a

disbeliever, or a Kaar (concealer).

To disbelieve is to be unnatural and

unreasonable. This leads to the

most important statement in Islam,

the Shahaadah.

TRIBUTE TO THE

LATE IMAM

GOOLAM PARKER

With heavy hearts we share the passing of Imam Goolam

Parkar, whose life illuminated the corridors of Habibia

Sooe Masjid in Rylands Estate, Cape Town. Imam

Goolam was not just a Khalifa of Quran or an Imam but

he was a beacon of light guiding the community through

both spiritual and worldly challenges.

In his tenure at Habibia Sooe Masjid, Imam Goolam

has embodied the essence of compassion, wisdom, and

unwavering faith. His dedication to serving the

community Muslim and Non- Muslim knew no bounds.

Whether it was leading prayers, imparting spiritual

guidance, or extending a helping hand to those in need,

Imam Goolam's presence was synonymous with solace

and support.

Beyond the walls of the masjid, Imam Goolam's impact

rippled throughout the community. He was a pillar of

strength, offering counsel and comfort to all who sought

his wisdom. His seless acts of kindness touched

countless lives, leaving an indelible mark on the hearts of

those who were fortunate enough to know him.

Imam Goolam's legacy is not measured solely by the

years he spent amongst us but by the lives he touched

and the hearts he uplifted. Imam Goolam is the son of

the late Imam Baboo (RA) whose maqam neighbours the

Mazaar of Hazrat Moulana Abdul Latief Qazi Siddiqui

(RA). Imam Goolam leaves us with the prophetic

teachings of love, tolerance, and service to others.

May Allah grant Imam Goolam Parkar Jannatul Firdous

and bring ease to the Parkar and Kagee families,

Aameen. Our Executive, Staff and Students extend our

deepest condolences to Imams household, Maulana

Qutboodien Kagee, the Custodians, Executive, Imaamat

and Musallies of the Habibia Sooe Masjid.

At Vision We Have Heart, Hope And Happiness

ALLAH HEARS THE

ONE WHO PRAISES HIM

Keeping this in perspective it is evident that it is actually

He who praises Himself on the tongue of His slaves,

because when a person praises Him it is only due to His

permission that such praise is uttered by their tongues,

and is established in their heart through his permission.

Truly, to Him is all the praise and to Him belongs

everything; in His Hand lies all goodness; He is the

absolute controller of everything, all that is apparent or

hidden.

This is only a brief glimpse of the countless aspects of

servitude to Allah included in this statement al-hamd, it

is only a drop of water out of the ocean of the knowledge

of what servitude to Allah comprises and entails.

From among the implications of being a true ‘abd to

Allah is to realise that the act of praising Him for a bounty

that He bestowed upon you is itself worthy of praising

Him again for it (i.e. praising Him) necessitates praising

Him (again) for facilitating His praise on the tongue of his

‘abd perpetually. In reality, if a person were to devote

every single one of his breaths toward praising his Lord

for even a single bounty of His numerous blessings that

He bestowed upon him, it would not be enough - this is

because no one is capable of praising Him enough. And

even if he does not praise Him for any of His graces upon

him, he should praise Him for preventing harm from him

(at least). Furthermore, he should praise Him for guiding

him to praise Him.

Al-Awza’i said: I heard someone say: “All praise is due to

Allah; if not for a grace He bestowed, it is for a harm He

prevented.”

Another aspect of servitude to Allah in “al-hamd” is that

it connotes an acknowledgement that were it not for

Allah’s guidance that inspired and enabled the ‘abd of

Allah to praise Him, he would be incapable of praising

Him. He is therefore praised for it because He inspired

his tongue and heart to praise Him; indeed no one would

be guided if Allah did not permit it.

From the other aspects of servitude to Allah found in “alhamd”

is that it encompasses even the minutiae of the

circumstances and state of affairs of the ‘abd (of Allah);

the hidden and the known, the loved and the despised. It

even covers the details of the circumstances and

conditions of mankind in its entirety; the righteous and

the evil ones, the dignied ones and the abased ones. In

reality He is to be praised for all of that, even if His slaves

are unable to comprehend the wisdom behind it or

realise the magnitude of praise He deserves for all of

that. To praise Allah is a manifestation of guidance that

Allah inspires in His slaves; some indulge in praising Him

abundantly whereas there are others whose share is

minimal, dependent on the level of knowledge one has

about his Lord. The Prophet (SAW) said, “And then He will

inspire me to praise Him with such praises as I do not

know (now), I will praise Him with those praises and will

fall down, prostrating before Him.”

SINS PERTAINING

TO EYES, EARS AND

1. To gaze or peep at strangers of

the opposite sex.

2. To gaze at beardless boys.

3. To peep into another’s house.

4. To climb unnecessarily onto

high places like the roof of

one’s house as this would

inconvenience the womenfolk

of the neighbourhood over

the question and violation of

Purdah. However, when

there’s genuine need to

ascend heights, then some

children should be sent

around to alert all the

neighbours.

5. For the male relatives of the

bridegroom to view the bride

if they are not her mahram.

The Islamic law prohibiting a

male stranger from looking at

females, also applies to the

bridegroom’s relatives for

whom it would be sinful to see

the new bride if they are not

her mahram.

6. To read un-Islamic books,

especially the cheap novels,

periodicals and comics.

NOTE: It is the responsibility of

p a r e n t s t o e n s u r e t h a t

children avoid such books or

even the magazines and

newspapers which contain

detailed accounts of obscene

and promiscuous living

s t a n d a r d s o f w e s t e r n

libertines or photographs of

n u d e a n d s e m i - n u d e

shameless people. If such

h a r m f u l l i t e r a t u r e i s

discovered with them, it

should be conscated and

destroyed immediately. To sell

such lthy smut is also not

permissable.

THE DESIRE FOR

NAME OR FAME

When a person desires name, fame and exaltation. for

himself, he is sure to be Jealous and envious of the

popularity and praise of others and is pleased to hear ill

and disgrace of others. This is a major sin to wish ill for

others.

There is another evil in it that offer popularity or fame

and is gained by unfair and dishonest means i.e. one

spends extravagantly in marriages and other ceremonies

just for the sake of name. Money is also collected by

unfair means, such as, bribe, smuggling etc or by loan on

interest. The worldly loss of this evil is that ‘such persons

makes many enemies who are Jealous and even remain

in search of an opportunity to defame and humiliate him.

A remedy to get rid of this evil is to realise and believe

that the praised and those who praise shall, not live in

this world for ever. All have to die and after sometime no

one will remember either of them. Then why should one

desire a baseless and temporary thing. It is sheer

foolishness.

Another remedy is that one should not act against

Shariat though he may be humiliated in the public-eye

due to that.

HAJJ - THE GREATEST

GATHERING OF

MANKIND

Hajj is the pilgrimage to the “House of God” in Makkah which

is compulsory on every adult muslim in any part of the world

who has means to undertake the journey. Hajj is the fth pillar

of Islam and brings together yearly what may justly be

described as the greatest gathering of mankind.

Hajj is, above all, a journey of individual self-renewal inspired

by piety and devotion to God.

In this quest, the individual is strengthened by the knowledge

that thousands of human beings from all over the world,

regardless of their worldly status, language or race, are in

pursuit of the same goal - the pleasure of their Creator. Many

of the rites of the Hajj go back to the Prophet Ibrahim

(Abraham) and there is a sense of history, of going along the

same straight way that has been the way of the prophets of

God and those who followed them. There is also a natural

feeling of cosmic identity on the part of the pilgrim as he goes

anti-clockwise around the cube-like structure of the Ka’bah

clothed in the simple garments of the state of Ihraam, or as he

stands soul-shaken on the plain of Arafat from noon till the sun

sinks below the horizon. Some of the powerful emotions

experienced during this great act of worship is described in the

account below:

and on my mother’s side are ancestors who fought with

Washington and Lincoln, and a great grandfather who

was a Pony Express rider. Until I was sixteen, I myself had

had an upbringing generally regarded as typically

American, Midwestern, middle class and Protestant. I

grew up in Bay City, Michigan, belonged to the Episcopal

Church, went to Sunday School and sang in the church

choir. At sixteen however, I discovered the Qur’an. These

words (of the rst chapter), simple, and direct, so

impressed me that I immediately set out to memorize

them. Indeed they drew me into Islam, an example

perhaps of Prophet Muhammad’s assertion that

everyone is born a Muslim and made a Jew or a Christian

by his parents.

From that time forward I charted my life in the direction

of Mecca... Before I embarked on the Pilgrimage, its

rituals seemed to me just so many curious exercises. But

as I participated in the event of the Pilgrimage, the

meaning of these rites unfolded, my understanding of

Islam was deepened and I learned more fully what it

meant to be a muslim. Indeed, this is why God had

commanded Muhammad to issue the call for the

pilgrimage: “That they (the pilgrims) may witness things

that are of benet to them...” (The Qur’an, 22:28)

(For example, towards the end of the Hajj when the time

of making the Sacrice came), I began to feel uneasy.

Since I have not completely outgrown the tenderheartedness

I had known as a child, I had balked at the

idea of the Sacrice long before being confronted with it

and now the time had come to do it. What was I to do? As

a girl I had cared for lost dogs or stray cats, adopting any

edgling that had fallen from its nest, splinting a bird’s

broken leg with matchstick and feeding injured

butteries on sugar syrup. But a companion had been

adamant. “You must do the sacrice.”

Back at our building in Mina I turned to the Qur’an. I

found that the Sacrice has many meanings: it

commemorates Abraham’s offering of his son’s life and

God’s rejection of this sacrice in exhchange for

Abraham’s submission to God’s will; it marks the end of

idolatry among Arabs; it is an offering of thanksgiving to

the God of Creation Who has been so benevolent to

mankind; and it teaches the well-to-do to share their

blessings to “eat thereof (the Sacrice) and feed the

beggar and the suppliant”. (22:36)

As I pondered what I had read, a great weight was lifted

from my conscience. I suddenly saw that the Sacrice

upholds the sacredness of life, that it, in fact, constitutes

a pledge by the pilgrim that he will slay for sustenance

only. And where I had felt reluctance before, I now felt

eagerness to full all the requirements of my pilgrimage.

Please Pay Attention To The Lives Of The Orphaned And Destitute

ESSENTIALS OF

EFFECTIVE MEETINGS

PURPOSE - There should be a direct

focus on the purpose of the meeting.

A written agenda must be passed out

ahead of time. There should always

be a period at the end for open

discussion. Questions or arguments

that are not relevant to the item under

discussion can be postponed to this

period.

MEETING ENVIRONMENT - Physical

arrangement of the room is critical to

the meeting’s success. As for size, the

r o o m s h o u l d c o m f o r t a b l y

accomodate the anticipated number

of people. It should be neither too

large or too small, although it is

prudent for motivational meetings to

use a slightly smaller room since

physical closeness will help generate

a feeling of greater solidarity among

the participants. The temperature

should be comfortable and the room

well lit, especially if decision making

is expected. Seating arrangements

are important. A speaker in front of

rows of people tends to create a

psychological barrier between

himself and the audience. We should

avoid this when possible since it

inhibits participation. The room

should be free of distractions such as

excessive noise or inappropriate

decorations.

Even if we don’t know how many will

come, our knowledge and experience

should help us choose the size that

may be the most proper. Select the

best from the classic seating

arrangements: Theater Style,

Classroom Style, Conference Style,

Banquet Style. Before the meeting,

check the acoustics, lighting and

temperature control of the room so as

to keep people comfortable. Plan on

making more space in a crowded

meeting room. Get things in writing

from the facility manager.

TIME - It is very important to start on

time, to get to the point of the

meeting, and to end it on time; this

adds an organized appearance to a

meeting, leaves a good impression

on the participants, and helps get

work done in an orderly and efcient

manner. It is harmful to drag the

meeting on by allowing discussions to

go off on tangents. Socialising can

occur after the meeting.

CHAIRMAN - The authority of the

chairman must be well-established if

he is to run the meeting effectively.

When introducing him, we must stress

the chairman’s credentials and

qualications to chair the meeting.

This promotes an acceptance of his

a u t h o r i t y. T h e c h a i r m a n ’ s

appearance and manner of speaking

must project him well. He should be

neutral when controversial points are

discussed. He should keep the

thinking of the group focussed on the

agenda item. He should not ask :

“Well, what do you think we should

do?” Instead, he should summarise

opportunities and alternatives as

fairly as possible.

PARTICIPATION - Participation is of

the utmost importance. If one person

does all the talking, others are turned

off and the meeting becomes dull for

them. We can plan participation

ahead of time by asking different

people to present various items on

the agenda. Such involvement helps

build and maintain an active and

interested group. When we make the

participants feel they are part of the

focus of the meeting, we enhance

their motivation to contribute and

accept assignments for work.

To get shy participants to open up, we

can use any number of “ice breakers”

that will get the meeting off to a

friendly start. To keep it that way, we

should make attractive and legible

name tags available, and encourage

the participants to wear them.

HOW TO SHARE QUR’BAAN MEAT

It is better to distribute the meat equally among three

groups:

1. One part for your household use (drying the meat for

keeping biltong is allowed)

2. One part as a gift for relatives, neighbours and friends

3. One part for the needy and poor

Offal and Hide - The hide of the Qur’baan could also be

sold and the money distributed, but it need not be sold if

one desires it for personal use. Offal and the hide, if not

used, should be given in charity for the needy, not thrown

away or buried. As related by his cousin Ibn-Abbas, the Holy

Prophet did not allow burying even a dead animal’s hide

when he saw the servant of Maymoonah burying a sheep.

He told her: “Why don’t you skin it and use it (the skin).”

When the servant replied that the sheep had died, the

Prophet (SAW) said: “The eating of it (the esh) is

forbidden,” (meaning not its by-products).

Bukhari records that the Holy Prophet (SAW) appointed Ali

to supervise the Qur’baan, who said: “He ordered me to

distribute the meat, then he ordered me and I distributed

their covering and their skins.”

It is not allowed to give part of the Qur’baan meat, offal or

hide as payment for the butcher.

Innovation such as burying offal, hide or de-boned carcass

are un-Islamic acts and against the Holy Prophet’s orders.

(The same qualication of animals and distribution of

shares as in Qur’baan apply to Aqueeqah.)

On Behalf Of Others - It is permissible to offer sacrice on

behalf of one’s deceased parents, relatives, friends and

persons whom we hold in esteem.

The spirit of Qur’baan covers many things. Those who

cannot afford to sacrice animals could prove their love and

sincerity to Almighty Allah in other ways: sacricing our

base desires, which is the ‘animal in man’.

The object of Qur’baan is that its meat should be shared by

one’s family, friends and the needy. Therefore, people on

Pilgrimage may authorise their families to perform the

ritual of Qur’baan on their behalf in their hometowns.

Sacricing merely for the ritual of it does not serve the true

object of Qur’baan.

Modern conditions and accommodation restrictions may

make it difcult to slay animals in one’s locality. However, if

proper arrangements are made with the authorities, this

can be overcome. Qur’baan could be arranged at special

sites at the Abattoirs. Contact your nearest Imaam for

guidance

Celebrating Eid-ul-Adha - “... and celebrate the name of

Allah, during the days appointed, over the cattle which He

has provided for them (for sacrice): then eat ye thereof

and feed those that are distressed, needy.” (Surah Al-Haj,

Verse 28)

EID MUBARAK TO THE UMMAH OF ISLAM

Wishing All Our Listeners A Joyous Eid-ul-tr

THE SECRET &

ESSENCE OF SALAH

The secret and essence of salah lies

in the inclination of the heart

towards Allah alone and focusing

attention on Him while praying.

Consider the case of a person

whose heart is engaged in one’s

own thoughts and worldly affairs;

he is like a person who visits the

King intending to apologise for his

own mistakes and shortcomings,

beseeching rain from the clouds of

His Generosity and Mercy to

nourish his heart enough so it can

be at His service. However as soon

as he arrives at His doorstep and is

one the verge of calling upon Him,

he turns away from the King and

instead starts to busy himself with

things that are most disliked and

disparaged by the King. Even as his

heart is inclined toward trivial

matters, he still sends forth his

servants (i.e. limbs) to serve Him on

his behalf and to excuse and

compensate for the absence of his

heart. But despite that, the

Generosity and Benevolence of the

King refuses to dismiss the servants

of his slaves without granting their

master (i.e. slave of Allah) a portion

of His Mercy. But there is a big

difference between the ones who

win and earns the trophy and those

given a consolation prize out of

Compassion and Mercy. Allah said:

“And for all there will be ranks from

what they do, that He may pay them

for their deeds! And they will not be

wronged.” (Al-Ahqaf 46:19). Allah

created mankind solely to worship

Him, and He created everything

else to be at mankind’s service. It is

related in a hadith qudsi that Allah

said: “O son of Adam, I created you

to worship Me and created

everything else for you. So, by My

rights upon you, do not indulge in

matters other than what I created

you for.” In another narration: “O

son of Adam, I created you to

worship Me, so do not play (i.e. do

not be involved in idle pleasures); I

guaranteed your provision in this

life so do not tire yourself (i.e. seek

your provision but do not make it a

concern because provisions are

already decreed). O son of Adam,

whenever you seek Me, you shall

nd Me. And, whenever you nd

Me, you shall nd everything. But, if

you were to lose Me, you would lose

everything. Verily, I ought to be

most beloved One to your heart.”

This is why Allah, Most High, made

the salah the means through which

people can be near Him, invoke

Him, earn His love and enjoy His

Company.

At Vision Love Is More Than What We Feel, It Is What We Do

UNIQUE METHOD OF

REFRAINING FROM

BACKBITING

Whenever we want to speak of

another person, it’s best to envision

that he is present, so that we avoid

saying things that would hurt him.

Hence, Sayyidina Abu Talib Makki

(RA) has stated, “A pious person has

stated that whenever someone was

mentioned before me, I assumed

that the person was sitting right in

front of me & I only said the things

about him that he would like.”

(Qut-tul Qulub, vol. 1, pp. 349).

S i m i l a r l y , a n o t h e r p i o u s

predecessor said, “When someone

is mentioned before me, I picture

him mentally and I only say those

things about him, that I would like

to be said about me.” (Qut-ul-

Qulub, vol. 1, pp. 349)

THE MANNER OF

EATING OF HUZOOR

AQDAS (SAW)

ADORN YOUR EID WITH TAKBIR

Before eating Huzoor (SAW) would

wash his hands. he would eat with his

right hand and from the food directly

in front of him.

Huzoor (SAW) would never lean

against anything whilst eating.

He would eat in different postures;

sometimes he would sit in a kneeling

position, on both his feet, with the

upper part (instep) of his feet on the

oor (like in tashahhud). Sometimes

he would sit like this, but with one foot

raised, with the knee touching the

chest. Sometimes he would squat on

his heels, with his knees and feet

together, and the heels and bottom of

the feet (soles) lying at on the oor.

This manner was the posture in which

Huzoor (SAW) would sit most often.

Huzoor (SAW) did not eat on a table

or whilst sitting on a chair. He used to

spread a dastarkhan (a sheet of

leather or cloth) on the oor and have

his meals on this.

Usually Huzoor (SAW) would eat with

three ngers - the thumb, shahadat

(index) nger and the middle nger. If

the food was thin, then he would use

the next (ring) nger as well.

After Huzoor (SAW) nished eating,

he would put his ngers to his mouth

and lick them clean. He would start

with the middle nger and nish with

the thumb.

If the food was arranged in a manner,

that it covered the centre of the dish,

then Huzoor (SAW) would not start

eating (or dish) from the centre, but

from the part in front of him and from

the bottom, and Huzoor (SAW) said

that the Barkat (blessings) of the food

descends in the centre.

Huzoor (SAW) did not like to have a

large amount of small dishes, such as

the excessive condiments served by

the rich.

Huzoor (SAW) used to especially like

halwa (sweetmeats), honey, vinegar,

dates, sweet melon, cucumber and

marrow.

Huzoor (SAW) used to especially like

meat of the shoulder , neck and loin

of the animal.

Sometimes Huzoor (SAW) would eat

in pairs; sweet melon and dates

together, sometimes cucumber and

dates, or roti and dates, or sesame

seeds and dates.

If Huzoor (SAW) did not like some type

of food, he would never say anything

bad about it.

FROM THE DESK

OF ISMAIL

OSMAN

When you start to learn, you

realise how little you know, and

when you realise how little you

know, the more you want to learn

to know.

You can break someone’s bones,

but soon it will start to heal. But if

you break someone’s heart, there

will always be sorrow and sadness

he’ll feel.

Do not be discouraged if your

fortunes are small and few,

remember that the mighty oak tree

was once a nut like you.

Do not be covetous of others’

possessions, afuence and wealth,

rather pray and thank the Almighty

for the good food you enjoy, but

more so, good health.

One noble thing which all of

humanity must learn, is to be kind

to your neighbours and friends;

expecting nothing in return.

Travelling by bus, seeing an old

lady standing. Kindly get up and

offer her your seat.

Maybe one day you’ll nd that

same lady greeting you.

Smilingly coming down the street.

Now that you have acquired

fortunes and fame,

While not so long ago you had

little, feeling sad and ashamed.

Now you are haughty and proud,

but remember the Almighty in the

wink of an eye,

Remove your fortunes, and no one

else but yourself to be blamed.

MAAF, A BIG WORD

TO USE, A SMALL

WORD TO SPELL

I have been a male resident in the area of Penlyn Estate

for the past ve years. I recently had my 24 year old

cousin from Worcester over for the weekend. Whilst

watching our favourite TV show in the lounge area, two

Vision residents knocked on the door, with a school

collecting list. For the life of me, I don’t know what had

gotten into me, but I treated them to those immortal

South African words. The two children were so surprised

with my ugly behaviour and immediately left.

After their departure my cousin had no hesitation in

questioning my ugly behaviour towards the children. He

suggested I visit the Vision Children’s home and

apologise. I was in the school by my cousin and was

severely reprimanded by my cousin and wife. In that, I

saw the light. It was agreed that I write a note to the

Vision residents, and that is what I did.

From the bottom of my heart, to the two girls of Vision,

please accept my sincere maaf. I recently had emerged

from a prolonged battle with clinical depression. I was in

debt. My wife had just given birth to our rst child, and I

am unemployed, having just been retrenched after

serving the company for six years.

With all that being said, I beg you to accept my maaf, as

this caused me some sleepless nights. Once again,

please accept my maaf.

Do Not Spread False Rumours About Children’s Homes

HAJJ BEFORE HAJJ

THE ZAMZAM WELL

Beer-Zamzam is the well of Zamzam from where the

holiest water on Earth is owing. This well existed since

the time of Sayidatinaa Haajar (RA) when she placed her

infant baby there and went to look for water while

running from between the hill of Safwa and the hill of

Marwah. When she nished seven times of running she

heard a voice and went to her baby and saw that Jibreel

was digging with his wing and water started owing from

this place. She was scared that the water will simply

disappear into the hot and dry sand of the desert thus she

surrounded it with a barrier of sand. The Prophet (SAW)

said: If she did not try with her hands to preserve it, the

water of Zamzam would have owed like a fountain. It

has also been said that the water got its name Zamzam

from the sound it made when it came gushing out of the

earth. Others say that it got its name because Haajar

when she saw the water gushing from the well, she said:

“Zum yaa maa, zum yaa maa. Accumulate and remain

together o water” because she feared that the will simply

disappear. Zamzam also has other names such as

Shab’baa’ah, Mur ’wiy ’yah, Naa’ah, Aayah,

Maymoonah, Bar’rah, Kaayah, Mu’theebah, Shifaa’u,

Suk’min and Haz’matu Jib’reel. The well of Zamzam was

for about 500 years closed, a person by the name of Am’r

Ib’n Al-Haarith buried therein two golden gazelles and

seven golden swords. As the time went by, no one knew

where the well of Zamzam was until Abdul-Mut’talib, the

grandfather of the Prophet (SAW) discovered it. Today

the people consume about 10,000 cubic meters of

Zamzam daily and about 765 cubic meters are pumped

per hour out of the well. There are taps outside the

Haram from where people can get their Zamzam water.

Inside the Haram, cold Zamzam water can be found in

large plastic containers and there is also Zamzam water

at its normal temperature at different parts of the Haram.

Plastic glasses are used but once and are also supplied at

all Zamzam depots.

EMPOWERING CAREGIVERS:

YOUTH DAY INITIATIVE AT VISION

CHILD AND YOUTH CARE CENTRE

Youth Day at Vision Child and Youth Care Centre isn't just

about celebrating the resilience of young people; it's also

about empowering those caring for them. A recent

workshop held at Kirstenbosch Gardens, hosted by Light

from Africa, focused on a crucial aspect of caregiving:

the wellbeing of caregivers themselves. Designed

specically for carers working with children, this

workshop aimed to address the overlooked issue of

emotional burnout and secondary trauma. Surrounded

by the beauty of nature, attendees learned valuable

strategies for self-care and stress management. The

workshop emphasized the importance of caregivers

prioritizing their own wellbeing, recognizing that they

cannot effectively support others without supporting

themselves. This initiative perfectly aligns with the Youth

Day ethos of ensuring that carers' glasses are never

empty, enabling them to continue pouring into the lives

of the children they serve. Vision Child and Youth Care

Centre is not only investing in the wellbeing of its staff,

but also enhancing the quality of care provided to the

children and youth in its care. As we reect on the

signicance of Youth Day, let us not forget the vital role

that caregivers play in shaping the lives of young people.

Through initiatives like the workshop hosted at

Kirstenbosch Gardens, Vision Child and Youth Care

Centre continues to demonstrate its unwavering

commitment to the holistic wellbeing of all those under

its care.

Vision Has The Obligation To Sustain The Children In Their Care

MY SHOCKING

EXPERIENCE

I am a 14 year old grade 9 learner at a popular high

school in the northern suburbs. I was informed that this

school is over 35 years old, and has produced top quality

learners over the years.

I hereby wish to inform of my shocking experience to as

many young learners as possible. I honestly do not know

in what direction my young life will go. Please rest

assured that it is a school I do not want to be at. My heart

is saddened by the fact that the school staff are unable to

control our learners. The respect has been thrown out

the window. The amount of dagga smoking is so

frightening, the smell is prevalent everywhere.

I was shocked to see a grade 10 learner approach our

maths teacher for a lighter. He refused to oblige and the

student hit him over the head with a broomstick after

chasing him down the staircase. Later, 3 students

punctured 3 of his car’s tires. The teacher was so

traumatized that he took off from school for a week.

Then there are the teenage pregnancies. I counted the

number of pregnant girls and I hope I counted correctly,

but seven girls are now pregnant. They were boasting

about their pregnancies. It will be of no surprise should

one of these girls (future mothers) pop at school.

It is my wish to move to another school next year, God

willing, but I have this fear of what my condition will be if

the same thing will occur at my new school. I came from a

traumatised situation and I am being traumatised even

further. Please have mercy on me.

MAY ALLAH GIVE VICTORY TO ALL

THE MUJAHIDEEN AROUND THE WORLD

FREEDOM

FROM HUNGER

It is scandalous that millions of

people should live in abject

poverty, that millions should starve

and die in a world where there’s no

s h o r t a g e o f f o o d . F o o d i s

stockpiled, dumped and wasted in

huge quantities in some parts of

the world to maintain prots and

price levels while babies die on

their mother’s breasts too dry to

provide life-giving sustenance.

“Spread peace and distribute

food” was the rst instruction of the

noble Prophet (SAW) on reaching

Madina after the historic Hijrah

journey. Throughout his career he

sought to ensure that those in need

had sustenance even though he

and his family often had to go

hungry. He constantly emphasised

the link between belief and caring

for people by such statements as:

“He is not a true believer who eats

his ll while his neighbour goes

hungry.” Cutting off supplies of

food is not allowed in order to

bring people into submission.

During the time of the Prophet

(SAW), a new and ardent muslim,

Thumaamah ibn Uthaal, vowed

that “no grain of wheat or any

produce” should reach the

Quraysh in Makkah “until they

follow Muhammad.” The boycott

was stringently applied by his

people. Prices of food rose in

Makkah. Hunger began to bite and

there was even fear of death

among the Quraysh. When this

was brought to the attention of the

Prophet, he immediately instructed

Thumaamah to lift the boycott and

r e s u m e s u p p l i e s . To a v o i d

dependency and starvation,

societies should strive to be

independent in food production as

a primary goal. The practice of

giving over land almost exclusively

to the production of cash crops like

sugar cane, cotton and worst of all,

tobacco, for the main benet of

foreign multinational companies

should be abandoned. The

Prophets encouraged agricultural

production and linked it with

rewards in the Hereafter. Anyone

who plants a tree or sows a crop for

people, animals and birds to eat of

its produce merits reward,

according to the noble Prophet.

The contributions, however small,

of individuals is important.

Compassion must be translated

into practical help.

MUBARAK FOR EID-UL-ADHA

WHAT IS QUR’BAAN?

The practice of sacricing edible animals in the name of

Allah & distributing their meat among the needy, was

started by Prophet Ibraheem (known among nonmuslims

as Prophet Abraham). Prophet Ibraheem

founded the Ka’baah at Makkah & dedicated it as a

House of Worship for Allah. He asked his people to give

up worshipping idols, guiding them in the Belief of

Allah’s Oneness. He suffered a lot of hardship for the

sake of his Beliefs, but continued preaching the Truth.

Almighty Allah refers to him in the Holy Quran as

“Khaleel”, meaning “Friend”. He delivered Allah’s

Message many centuries before Prophet Moses, Prophet

Jesus & Prophet Muhammad (SAW).

THE TEST - Once Prophet Ibraheem dreamt that

Almighty Allah wanted him to sacrice his only beloved

son Ismaeel. He could not refuse the Call of The Lord, no

matter how dear the sacrice. He told his son about it.

The obedient young boy offered to fulll his father’s

dream. Allah was only testing the sincerity of His friend,

& when the friend passed the test by his willingness to

sacrice his son, Allah commanded him to slay a sheep,

instead. Thus, muslims mark this occasion on the 10th of

Thil-Haj by offering Qur’baan - sacrice - on the day of

Eidul-Adha - & celebrate the annual Pilgrimage at

Makkah.

PAGAN PRACTICE - Before the advent of our Prophet,

the ritual sacrice was abused. Animals were sacriced

in the name of idols & other mortals. Islam prohibited this

and commanded all sacrices only for the sake of Allah,

and its meat to be shared with the needy. The gesture of

sacrice is symbolic as the Holy Quran describes in Surah

Haj, verse 37: “...It is not their meat nor their blood that

reaches Allah. It is your Piety that reaches Him...”

The Holy Prophet (SAW) has ordered us to offer Qurbaan

- to sacrice animals - for the sake of Allah every year, if

we can afford it.

WHO MUST OFFER QUR’BAAN? - Every male or

female who has the means.

WHICH ANIMAL? - A sheep at least six months old, or a

goat at least a year old , covers one person. An ox, cow,

buffalo or camel can cover up to seven people, provided

each bear the cost equally, and its distribution is shared

fairly and equally. An ox, buffalo or a cow should be at

least two years old, and a camel ve years and over.

ANIMALS NOT ALLOWED - Physically defective

animals - blind, semi-blind, cock-eyed, disease-ridden,

cripple, extremely lean, very old or weak or those whose

tail, horns, or ears have half or more parts missing - are

not allowed for Qur’baan.

ALLOWED - An animal “born” without a horn, or a sheep

or goat that is castigated or if half of its teeth are missing,

is allowed.

SPECIFIED TIME LIMIT - The time of slaying starts from

the morning of 10th Thil-Haj after the Eid prayer, until

the last day of Ay-yaame-tashreeq up to the time the As’r

prayers end (The period of Ay-yaame-tashreeq is from

the 10th of Thil-Haj, until the 12th of Thil-Haj according

to Hanafee, and until the 13th of Thil-Haj according to

Sha’fa’ie).

SLAYING - People living in areas where the

Congregational Prayer of Eid is held should slay the

animal after Eid Prayers. Those not living in such places

should slay any time within the “specied” period. It is

better if the person offering the sacrice himself slays the

animal, though it’s not a must. With a “Joint-sacrice”,

the slayer should mention the names of the others in his

Niyyah.
