Dont ask “What”, ask “Why”

Share

For what is happening in the world, locally and abroad, we turn to SABC, CNN and BBC. For why its happening, we turn to QSC – Qur’an and Sunnah Channel. In fact, QSC has an additional feature that no other satellite station has: it has a “future fast forward” button that tells us what will happen in the near future as well as the far future. What we see now on SABC, CNN and BBC, QSC already showed it millions of years ago, so let us rather tune in to the real divine station, not the biased and inaccurate earthly ones.

KFC or Khuri Kitchri

Share

We were seated in a five-star restaurant surrounded with all types of delectable dishes. For starters, we had shish kebab, aloo paratha, paapad, and corn soup. Not sure with what dish to start with, someone piped up: “What dish is Sunnat to eat first?” The question caught us all off-guard. A lively debate then followed as to whether it’s sunnat to eat the dessert before or after the meal.  Whilst all this was going on, someone who had some free airtime decided to phone Shaikh Mithai who shocked everyone with his answer: “Never mind when to have dessert, our Noble Master, Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) was never lavish in his meals. He never had a two-course meal ever in his life; at times, days would pass and no food was cooked in his home. His bread was made of course barley and at times of severe hunger, he would tie stones on his blessed belly. His simplicity was such that he preferred picking up the dates from the ground, rather then shaking the branches of the tree to make the fresh fruit fall upon him. His sunnat was hunger and his table was the floor.”

Let us fall in love with them again

How do you remember people whom you love? Well, Shah Jahan, the Mughal emperor, built the “Jewel of Muslim Art in India” – the Taj Mahal, to celebrate the memory of the flame of his life, his third wife – Mumtaz Mahal – in Agra. Grief stricken at her death, he started the building in 1643 and only completed it 22 years thereafter. The Egyptians weren’t the only ones to build pyramids to celebrate their deified rulers whom they believed never really died.

Palestine is not a country

Share

Everyone thinks that Israel controls the world. They are very wrong! They control the whole world besides one of the smallest and most impoverished countries: it’s called “Palestine.” Nowadays, everything is made in China, besides sacrifice and determination. That’s made in Palestine!

Our domestic dilemma

Share

Once a domestic servant came to his master in great anger and told him: “Look, I am not going to serve you any longer as you do not have any faith in me, though I am serving you so loyally for the past seven years.”

Master: “What is the matter? I have faith in you, that’s why I have given all the keys of the house including those of the safe, to you.”

Servant: “No, you do not have faith in me, I am sure.”

Master: “How do you say that?”

Servant: “I tried all the keys and not one fits in the safe!”
