Tuan Guru wrote the first laws for liberation, freedom and justice on Robben Island.
While the first laws to liberate the oppressed and to ensure justice in South Africa was written on Robben island by Tuan Guru in the 17th century while he was imprisoned none of these laws has been shared since 1994 with our lawmakers in parliament.
Tuan Guru was very strict in teaching prized Negro slaves and others not to compromise on divine laws. So he would have rejected the position of Muslim lawmakers that “Islam is bad for business” and that it was justified to vote in favour of abortion and same sex marriages and that to deny others shebeens was wrong.
To then justify this by saying that “to deny others their rights opened the door for Muslim rights to be trampled upon is certainly flawed and a sign of weakness.
Like Sheikh Ismail Keraan said on Roea night, South Africa needs guidance and it is our duty to “share the shariah”.
Help us build our first successful party so that Aljama can do so, Insha-Allah.
