Muhtaram Ulama / Muallimaat
Assalaamu alaykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatuhu
May Allah Ta’ala accept our feeble efforts in imparting the knowledge of Deen to the children of the Ummah.
Together with ta’leem it is important for us to also make the tarbiyat of our pupils. Tarbiyat refers to correcting them, guiding them and making their islaah.
In this regard the Ta’limi Board (KZN) has received many requests from teachers to prepare some topics discussing important aspects of tarbiyat.
Alhamdulillah by the grace of Allah Ta’ala the first edition has been prepared.
Topic: Speaking the truth and being honest.
It has been noticed that lies has become very common in Muslims. Truthfulness which was the hallmark of a Muslim has become very rare. Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) was known as As-Saadiq (The Truthful) Al-Ameen (The Honest).
Hence, let us try to the best of our ability to instill truthfulness and honesty in ourselves as well as the children in our classes.
This edition discusses some Ahaadith and important points on honesty which should be discussed with the children in our classes.
Insha Allah we hope in this way to pass on the wonderful teachings of Rasulullah (salallahu alayhi wasallam) to the Ummah and instill truthfulness and honesty in our own lives.
May Allah Ta’ala grant us all the taufeeq

Before commencing with Madrasah, let us try our best to plan out our work for the term so that we are ready for the final exams and can easily round up our work for the year. In English there is a saying that goes;
If you fail to plan, you plan to fail
Please take note of the following;

Once Moulana Ihtiramul Hasan Kandhlawi (RA) narrated:
Dr Abdul Carrim Saahib and myself were once discussing regarding the appearance of Imaam Mahdi. Doctor Saahib was of the opinion that he is to appear anytime now and I was insisting that there are certain signs mentioned in the Hadith that will appear before the appearance of Imaam Mahdi and those signs have not yet appeared. In order for Imaam Mahdi to make his a […]
(This is a summary of a few letters written by Hadhratjee Moulana In’aamul Hasan Saahib (RA) to some jamaat saathies who were going through some difficulties and hardships)
My respected brother
May Allah Ta’ala help you, assist you and make things easy for you. Please d […]
During the time of jaahiliyyah, the Arabs used to consider wine, dine and song to be the ultimate way of life. However there were certain people amongst them who understood and realized that life has a deeper purpose and meaning. Amongst these wise men was a person by the name of Uthman bin Mazh’oon. He had made wine […]
In this Imaani Muzaakarah, the need is to keep on repeating. Repetition will Insha-Allah bring conviction.
Line 1: The first line is, “I will look after Allah’s commands and Allah will look after me and be with me.”
The child has to be convinced that protection lies in Allah’s commands. In Allah’s commands I will find Allah. I cannot afford to move away from Salaah, the Masjid, the Qur’aan and the Maktab in times of difficulty.
Line 2: The second line is, “If I need anything, I will ask Allah Alone, and turn to Allah Alone for help.”
At the time of need and help, I should be turning to and asking Allah. Today we are only turning to the means and asking the creation; completely forgetting our creator, Allah.
Line 3: The third line is, “The whole world cannot help me or hurt me, without the permission of Allah.”
This conviction has to settle deep in the heart, that every condition of benefit or harm, is only with Allah’s permission. Illness does not decide on its own who to go to and how to go. Allah is controlling and deciding.
Line 4: The fourth line is, “What’s not written for me, will never come to me. And what came to me, could never miss me.”
We believe in Taqdeer, Allah’s divine decision, perfect planning, having complete knowledge of everything. When we forget this, we end up questioning and blaming others. A man after adopting all the means, still falls sick, so he asks, “How come I fell sick?” In reality he completely forgot Allah. His question ought to have been, “How come I forgot Allah?”
What is desired from this Imaani Muzaakarah is that when anything happens, our minds and hearts should immediately turn to Allah.
