In the spirit of giving back, VOC’s Corporate Social Relief (CSR) initiative for the month of July will coincide with honoring the elders at Beit-ul-Aman Old Age Home in Wynberg. Team VOC will broadcast its Golden Hour show live on the 20th July from the organization. This comes after the management requested adult diapers that are needed for residents at the frail care centre in Wynberg.

VOC’s station manager, Goolam Fakier, expressed his well wishes to the community for the new Islamic Year.

“Muharram holds significant historical and spiritual importance, reminding us of the sacrifices made and the lessons of resilience and faith. It is a time to reflect on our own lives, to strive for betterment, and to support one another in our personal and professional journeys.

In the spirit of this holy month, I encourage all of us to embrace these values in our daily interactions and responsibilities. Let us continue to work together with compassion, dedication, and mutual respect, fostering an environment where everyone feels valued and supported,” stated Fakier.

The month of Muharram is not only the first month of the Islamic (Hijri) calendar but also one of the four sacred months mentioned in the Qur’an.

Abu Hurayrah (RA) reported that the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said: “The best of fasting after Ramadan is fasting during Allah’s month of Muharram.” [Reported by Muslim, 1982]

As emphasized in the hadith above, the Prophet (ﷺ) underscored the sanctity of Muharram by referring to it as “Allah’s month” and encouraging fasting throughout the month.

Lastly, VOC has launched a soft and hard new calendar for 1446 AH. These calendars can be collected from local masjied in the area.
