This site was inspired by the advices of Shaykh Muhammad ‘Awwamah (hafizahullah) the Grand Syrian Muhaddith currently residing in Madinatul Munawwarah. The Respected Shaykh (hafizahullah) during his first visit to South Africa (in June 2012) stressed on the need for specialisation in the various Islamic fields of knowledge. The site was launched to coincide with Shaykh ‘Awwamah’s next visit to South Africa in January 2014. He was pleased to hear of it & blessed the site with his du’as & also offered some principle guidelines on how to attend to Contemporary Hadith queries. Moulana Muhammad is the Shaykh’s student (and a student of other Senior Contemporary Hadith scholars).

He graduated as an Aalim from Darul Uloom Taleemuddeen in the year 1998. He thereafter decided to pursue the study of the science of Iftaa (issuing fataawa) under the tutorage of qualified scholars viz. Mufti Ebrahim Salajee (Hafizahullah) (principal and head mufti of Darul Uloom Taleemuddeen, Isipingo Beach), Mufti Ebrahim Desai (Hafizahullah) (head of Darul Iftaa Mahmoodiyya) and Mufti Qaadhi Sayyid Abdul Jaleel (Hafizahullah). Mufti Saheb is also actively involved in the Ifta department as well as training students in the science of Iftaa (issuing Islamic rulings). This website was launched by Mufti Saheb primarily to impart the fataawa of his august Shaikh and respected ustadh Hadhrat Mufti Ebrahim Salajee (Hafizahullah), as well as to answer the masaa’il and queries of the Ummah.
