Abrahamic epistemology infers that the first people who will enter Hell are those who fought to ostensibly establish justice on earth. The reason for their condemnation is that they were insincere and did not do so to honor the Creator but sought respect for their...

Jacob Zuma the Dark Prince (Cape Argus – 23 October – Should we allow Dark Prince Zuma and pals to escape)

  How did one man undermine a century old liberation movement, capture a state and subdue a nation of 55 million within a decade? Jacob Zuma could be regarded as, possibly the most malign but ironically also the greatest political mind in the history of South Africa....

Addiction the new slavery – 16 October – Cape Argus – Decriminalizing Dagga enslaves nation

  The rape of a 7yr old girl in a restaurant toilet sparked outrage. Reports state, the thug had a history of drug addiction. The “pretext” for this crime is in motion and will serve as a “sick” defense strategy. To decriminalize addiction in a nation with the highest...

Atheists need our generosity ( Cape Argus – 2 October – Detachment from the Creator increases misery)

About 350 years ago, my ancestors were colonized in the Malay/Indonesian archipelago by the Dutch. Important leaders were exiled to the Dutch colony – Cape Town to reduce their influence. Their Islam was banned and to degrade their noble lineage, they were enslaved...

Why were we created? (Cape Argus – Returning to the Creator requires limiting the harm we cause in life)

At some point in life, we all ask ourselves the question, what is the purpose of my life? According to Abrahamic epistemology, we were created to worship the Creator as originally prescribed in the Torah, Bible and Quran. What is not common knowledge, is where we came...

Leadership requires understanding – Cape Argus – “Leadership requires understanding”

Ethical relations ( Cape Argus – 29 August – West, BRICS 2 peas in a pod)

South Africa is a “minority” global player. Thus we need global alliances to survive. It seems as if we have opted to neglect the western world because of past colonial and imperial agenda’s. The blatant racism and oppression which comes with “western occupation” is...

Light overcomes darkness – Cape Argus – 22 August – Infantile attack on faithful

The letter “Religion to blame for men’s misogynistic views” August 16, is a childish outburst. From the comfort of a mansion in Llandudno overlooking a lavish ambiance, Gary James regularly expresses his hate for the Almighty Creator. His contempt for Christianity and...

Why women suffer (Cape Argus – Parents must espouse solid values to kids)

There are many reasons why women experience abuse, ironically the historic reasons remain similar. Example, most people struggle to understand their own behavior, yet they “expect” to understand others. A lack of understanding oneself, leads to decision making based...

We need problem solvers not problem makers ( Cape Argus – Vet all aspirant leaders)

After 18 years in governance, I continue to be shocked in meetings on hearing the quality of debate. What is certain is that we have folk in leadership, who have no business being in the arena of service delivery or public representation. In the last Council meeting...

CMC VISION

Personal Responsibility is the ESSENCE of the Cape Muslim Congress

Economic Strength

Since the inception of the new dispensation, few members of our community have benefitted from the Broad Based Black Economic Empowerment opportunities that occur. Many of these contracts are secured by individuals with strong political relations.

Religion

Regular interaction with the Imams regarding the relevance of the weekly sermon can result in a more effective message being sent from the mosque.Events and issues that affect the community must remain the primary address in the Friday Sermon.

Social Cohesion

Regular interaction with the Imams regarding the relevance of the weekly sermon can result in a more effective message being sent from the mosque.Events and issues that affect the community must remain the primary address in the Friday Sermon.

Cultural Development
