  1. I recall the time when there were only two dhikrullāh groups at the Cape: the Jamaa’ah-tul Khatmil Qur’an of Sheikh Muḥammad Ṣāliḥ ’Abādī Solomon (1911-1999) and the ’Ibaad-u-Ragmaan Qadiri Jamaa’ah. The dhikr groups that existed before this period were killed off by the Wahhabite Salafīyyah. Group dhikrullāh was an innovation and “every innovation”, Wahhabīyyah stated flatly, “is going astray, and every ‘going-astray’ is in the fire”! Dhikr groups across the globe had fallen as a result of condemnation from these quarters. Most Rāṭib al-Ḥaddād dhikr groups had folded through being ambushed by the fundamentalist annoyance. Rāṭib al-’Attās units were caught in the cesspool. Ladies’ Mīlād al-Nabī assemblages were swept from its moorings. Sammānīyyah confraternities were scuttled. Giyarwee groups were severely battered. Qawwālī, manqabat and ghazal ensembles were torpedoed. Anāshīd composites were put to the sword. Under threat also, was the Cape Muslim method of reciting on the evenings observing the seventh and fortieth evenings subsequent to someone’s demise. Where local groups had their legs kicked from under them, the Jamaa’ah-tul Khatmil Qur’an and the ’Ibaad-u-Ragmaan stood firm.

  2. Ignorant! The youth today are on drugs and astray because they had no understanding of their deen. the previous generation placed too much focus on making mindless thikr (how many of the older generation can actually tell you the meaning of the rattib ul hadad? Majority that I know can’t even recite Quran) and not enough on understanding the quran and study of the authentic ahadeeth of rasulullah. If you love the prophet you will practice islam as he did and focus more energy on tahajjud and other nafl salaah and reciting and understanding of the Quran and Hadeeth. And not condemn your muslim brothers and sisters because they prefer to stick to practices that are not doubtful.
