السَّلاَمُ عَلَيْكُمْ وَرَحْمَةُ اللهِ وَبَرَكَاتُهُ
With sadness announcing the passing of Mustapha Hendricks, formerly of Greef Street, Salt River, and late of Beacon Valley, Mitchell's' Plain, senior student, founder member of the Institute of Islamic Shari`ah Studies, deputy secretary of the Council of the Institute and madrasah teacher in it. His service to the Institute spanned more than 30 years. He also helped in the fundraising efforts of the Institute. May Allah richly reward him for his services to the community and grant him mercy, forgiveness and station him in Jannah Firdaws. May Allah grant his widow, children, grandchildren and all the relatives, friends and colleagues sabr and resignation to His Will. Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji`un.

The tenth of Muharram Al-Haram is an auspicious day for Muslims. Our Nabi (s.a.w) ordered fasting on this day as it coincided with the Jews in Madinah fasting that day in thanksgiving for their release from bondage in Pharaonic Egypt. It is highly rewarding to fast on this day and to do meritorious deeds. It is sunnah to have nice food on this day, different from the other days due to its rank. All other later happenings have somehow overshadowed this important event and has noting to do with the actual purpose of it from the Nabi's own statement and exhortation on its commemoration.
There is great wisdom in the ancient journey of Banu Isra'il as it set the stage for the rising of many Ambiya and Mursalun from Bayt al-Maqdis from the offspring of Nabi Ishaq bin Ibrahim (a.h.s) and sealing of the Nubuwwah with Nabi Muhammad (s.a.w) of the progeny of Nabi Isma'il bin Ibrahim (a.h.s). May we all benefit from this great day and all the righteousness performed in it.🤲🏼

We are entering the last month of the Islamic calendar viz. Dhul Hijjah. The first ten days of this blessed and sacred month are special and on which our Nabi (s.a.w) elaborated to us as to its fadā’il. These days we should exert extra effort in performing good deeds such as extra Sunnah and nawāfil salāh, giving sadaqah, reading the Qur’ān and making dhikr. The best dhikr our Nabi (s.a.w) and the Ambiyā’ before him made at this time was: Lā ilāha illallāhu wah̟dahū lā sharīkalah. Lahul mulku wa lahul h̟amd wa huwa `alā kullī shay'in qadīr. May all be blessed during these blessed days.

Hoping everyone had a memorable `Īdul Fitr – that memory will remain for a very long time. Do remember to fast 6 days of Shawwāl as you wish; consecutively or separately, as long as it’s in the month of Shawwāl. Some fuqahā’ of the madhāhib allow the qadā of Ramadān together with the Shawwāl fasting. Whichever one you choose, follow it and do not force your view on others who take a different view. According to Hadīth, the fasting of Ramadān coupled with the 6 days of Shawwāl will merit the reward of a full year’s fasting. May Allāh accept from all.

The President has now consented that places of worship can operate under very strict rules. Only 50 persons allowed to worship at a time. The concessions seem like a give and a take at the same time. Reminds one of the salaried employee who receives an increase but then moves us in the tax bracket and in the end receives a net wage less than before the increase. It is impracticable to apply this concession as far as masājid are concerned. In practice, it would mean that the masājid must be sanitized 10 times each day for the 5 daily s͎alawāt. Who will see to it and supervise it to see that it complies with the regulations of sanitization. Who will test the temperature of each musallī entering and who will count to see that the number does not exceed 50 and send the others away. Who will not barge in and who will be of the negative tawakkalīs who insist on entering without a mask. Who will police this aspect? There’s not enough manpower for it. Most musallīs, as we know, leave when the Imām completes the salāh. The MJC has called for another month's extension in this matter. I, personally and respectfully, think it’s not enough. I would suggest 2 months as we are not peaking yet and then the curve must be really down before we venture to open masājid. We are in the midst of a very serious pandemic – it’s a crisis. Shar`an, the closing is valid. Protecting lives in a pandemic is a shar`ī duty. The situation should be reviewed on 1st August. In any event, all persons at risk, like over 60s (rather 50s onwards), and all those with chronic ailments and especially those with respiratory and cardiac problems must remain at home until the health authorities give the all-clear for them. Wear a mask in public and keep social distancing. Give a hand salām or a head nod when required. Above, make du`ā for this balā’ to pass and for us all to be safe from the virus. Āmīn.

With the pending arrival of the blessed `Īdul Fitr, may I extend to all of you, your families and friends warmest wishes for an `Īdul Fitr Mubārak. May all your spiritual efforts be crowned with the success of divine acceptance and may you all be of those Allāh has granted itqum minan nār. Āmin.
May all the good we have reaped during the blessed month and all the new virtuous ways we have developed be continued during the ensuing months and through all our fasting and good deeds, may Allāh bless us all with peace, happiness, success and protection from the Covid-19 virus. May all those afflicted with it recover through His Grace and may all those who were called to Higher Service be granted Jannah Firdaws. May Allāh bless all their love ones they left behind and comfort them and strengthen them to bear their pain and overcome their loss. Āmin.
`Īdul Fitr Mubārak. Kullu `ām wa antum bi khayr.

Shaykh Dr. A.K Toffar
Principal

FOUNDING OF THIS INSTITUTION OF LEARNING

This Institute was founded in mid December 1972 at 61 Kipling Street, Salt River, Cape Town, South Africa, the residence of the late Hajj Achmat (Ahmad) Manan by a few aspirant Muslims of varying ages and occupations, most of whom resided in Salt River which was and still is a predominantly Muslim Cape Town suburb for many decades. Shaikh A K Toffar was one of the founders.

The meeting resolved to found The Institute of Islamic Shari`ah Studies as an institution of Islamic learning. Two Departments were formed; an Administration Department which will run the administration side of the institution and administered through a committee with a chairman as its head, and an Education Department headed by Shaikh Abdul Kariem Toffar tasked with compiling a syllabus for the institution and administering the Education Department.

The Administration committee appointed Shaikh Toffar as Principal of the Institute.
