Muslims everywhere are going through a period of uncertainty, turmoil and
suffering. Throughout the world, there appears to be a concerted effort to wipe out
the very presence of Muslims. Bosnia, Somalia, Algeria are the better known
examples of this onslaught, but Muslims are under attack in many other countries
Kashmir, Cambodia, Burma are examples.
In South Africa, too, Muslims live in uncertainty. The country experiencing a period
of lawlessness and anarchy. There is an undermining fear of the future. Questions
"What should we do?"
"Should we vote?"
"Whom should we vote for?"
"Why do not we get guidance from theUlema?"
Islam does provide an answer, but the answers for Muslims are different from the
answers for non-believers. The causes for the elevation or degradation of
Muslims are not the same as they are for non-Muslims.
A student of Sheikh-ul-Hadith, Hazrat Maulana Zakarriya Saheb, asked seven
questions. Hazrat Sheikh's reply was published in a kitaab answers to the
problems we are facing, but serves as a guide according to which a Muslim's life
can be conducted.
It should be read and re-read. It should be studied carefully, so that full benefit can
be derived from the advice and guidance of Hazrat Sheikh.
May Allah Ta' ala fill the graves of all our pious elders with noor, particularly the
grave of Hazrat Sheikh-ul-Hadith, (Rahmatullah Alayh). May He grant them a high
place in Jannat and my he create in our hearts true love for Allah Ta'ala and His
Rasul (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam). May He make all of us think of and live our
lives for the ulitmate end i. e. success in the Aakhirat. Aameen
