Faiq Abrahams, Voice of the Cape's intellectual and linguistic talent was harvested from the principal wheat land of South Africa and the country's breadbasket known as Malmesbury. Faiq Abrahams was nurtured, cultured and flowered on the same black, fertile soil of the Swartland which yields the luxuriant golden wheat crops in Spring. He is the son of Hadji Fatima and Ebrahim (klonkies) but also the great son of the soil and community of the Valley of the Diep River - Malmesbury. How did this Pentech Commerce graduate grow and develop into the confident, multi-talented person with a deep love to serve his community?

Profile Farid Sayed

What a rich tapestry of hands-on journalistic experience Radio 786 enjys from Farid Sayed. Farid's passing colored tapestry of  broadcast journalism strings from a fixed warp of print media threads. Where was the nucleus of these journalistic threads spun from? This news hound can claim his kernel: a journalistic lineage of a proud tradition of struggle and boldness of an alternative press during the dark days of Apartheid.   Sayed learnt the trade of news hounding and writing at the coal-face of having to assist in the production of the then credible and much respected Muslim News. He was a labor-hand at S&S Printers: collating booklets and then finally to "collating Muslim News as it used to come off the press with the old system. Each was folded individually in the machine".

Where does Sheikh Ebrahim Gabriels, President of the Muslim Judicial Council (MJC) and Treasurer of the United Ulama Council of South Africa (UUCSA), amongst other esteemed positions, hail from? Where else but from the leafy quarters of Claremont, he migrated to the wind wept plains of the Cape flats under the wing of one of the most esteemed fathers of learning in the Cape Town community, Imaam Ishmail Johnstone of Surrey Estate.

Not only did Imaam Johnstone firmly shape his spirit and intellect along the course of Islam, but was also instrumental in the MJC President's graduating from the College of Medina University.

What better way than to cement the relationship through family ties? Hence, the union of marriage between Sheikh Ebrahim and Aisha, third eldest daughter of Imaam Johnstone. Aisha, so well fathered and so well husbanded. "Without her I could never have made it during those challenging years in Medina", says the Imaam of Forelands Masjid about the queen of his heart, "for she is a woman of great courage and sabr". As if the Sheikh sang this praise in her pres

Face to Face with Minister Naledi Pandoor

E-mail Print PDF

This article is an old article published in the Boorhaanol Magazines of the early 2000s. Naledi Pandoor is currently the South African Minister of Science and Technology. Still a highly recommended read.  As a high-ranking politician who needs to be reckoned with in her chosen arena, it is not sur-prising to find Naledi Pandor a woman ofstrong capabilities and tough-mindedness. The ability to sayprecisely that which enters her head never escapes her, even to her own detriment, at times. Toughness coupled with a loving, intellectual tradition is two very noble qualities she inherited fromher proud pedigree. Naledi also possesses a care and compassion that

serves as a healing balm to the human predicament.  Who so nobly to the character and destiny of the Chairperson of the National Council of Provinces? "My father", came the firm words from the daughter of Z K Matthews, Deputy-Minister of Safety & Security and member of the IFP,
