AS the month of Rabbi al Awwal approaches, the Pinelands-based Breeze Foundation is arranging a comprehensive programme of Thikr, talks, and commemoration of the beloved Prophet Muhammad SAW’s ongoing mercy through Allah.
For several years, members of the Breeze Foundation have generously helped feed the hungry and support the indigent in and around the Cape Flats, as well as providing various training in a variety of fields.
This year, the Foundation will officially launch, and it has invited luminaries and specialists from different parts of the world to speak on various interesting topics.
The week-long programme will start on September 22 with a pre-Jumuah talk at Pinelands Mosque by the guest and keynote speaker, Shaikh Dr Tamer Degheidy Al Qaderi.
A number of other speakers will also be delivering talks at various venues.
Professor Yasin Dutton will present ‘Learning Arabic Through the Qur’an,’ and Zakaria Chan will discuss ‘Oriental Meditation Tradition for Reflective Healing in Islam.’ Sa’id Boone, an American, will give a discussion titled ‘Restoring Fitrah Through Connection with the Earth and Earth’s Products.’ This interesting subject delves into the important aspects, particularly for the younger generation, of appreciating Allah’s words, ‘From earth, we have created you, and to the earth, we send you back,’ focusing on organic and holistic farming.
Amina Chan and Tazeen Dutton will provide an in-depth look into ‘Herbal Healing,’ with an emphasis on the Prophet’s (SAW) saying that ‘no ailment was created without a cure by Allah,’ while Shaikha Mariam Kabeer Fay will give a discussion titled ‘Reliving the Journey of great Muslim seekers – from Rabia Al Adawiya to Shaikha Mariam Kabeer Fay.’
All of these discussions will be supported by keynote presentations at various events by Shaikh Dr Tamer Degheidy Al Qaderi, who met his teacher, the revered Shaikh Hamid Rabbani Siddiqui (RA), in Medina. Shaykh Hamid Rabbani Siddiqui was the spiritual heir of his late renowned father, Moulana Abdul Aleem Siddiqui Al Qaderi (RA), a travelling emissary of Islam.
