To our Cape Town friends, though we are yet to meet InshaAllah, our hearts are already bonded in the name of religion and we pray may Allah facilitate your way to this majlis which is being organized by the learned amongst you.
Here's a quote from the Book of Knowledge
of Ihya Ulum al-Din.
Sayyidina Ali said:
Learning is the glory of mankind,
The wise are beacons on the road to truth,
Man is worth his knowledge - nothing more,
The fool will be his inveterate foe,
Knowledge is man's hope of life immortal,
Man may die but wisdom lives ever.
