Planning for the Welfare of Our Families

  • The Shari'ah seeks to protect the individual from harm as well as preserves his/her interests and benefits at all times, and in all situations. 
  • If the concept of Shari'ah is not understood fully and comprehensively, various problems will arise in practising religious obligations. 
  • Selfishness and self-centredness reflect the absence of mercy and compassion in our dealings with others. This undoubtedly goes against the teachings and values of Islam.
