Which ideas are problematic and are opposed to our creedal beliefs and faith? Sh Ismail provides a helpful framework on how to filter the correct information from Ideas such as "manifesting", "being in control of your own destiny" and others which may conflict with our understanding of qadr.
We also discuss how Islam is flourishing in South Africa and the reasons why. What can Muslim Communities in other countries learn from them.
