    Imagine a world without mothers and fathers
    The world as we know it gives a considerable amount of space and attention to mothers and fathers. As in the animal world on land, sea, or the air, humans have mothers and fathers with special roles to play in structuring the world. Despite some having to work1, parents have a duty of care and safety for their offspring that only they can do with boundless love, concern, trepidation, and selflessness. This special, psychological makeup, socialised countenance, and universally approved raison

    The straight path for social media users left to their own devices
    When, in 1936, Alan Turing first mooted the idea of practical, universal computing machines1, little did he realise that it would spawn the creation of a cybernetic world in which paper-thin, plastic and glassy, handheld devices, alongside their less popular desktop predecessors, would universally allow for split-second communication between users2, albeit that this miniaturisation in e-communication flouts the virtues of real-time interrelations. Exchanges of our voices, pictures, and written

    Echoes of Dawud and Jalut: Community sports vs the Olympic Games - Part 2
    Only an Omniscient Creator Knows when the Islamic beacon will blaze above the beckoning of all other paths. The very excessive demands for superlative heights in physical performance by irreligious and distracting Olympic Games (OG) cannot be accommodated within Islam. Hours, days, weeks, months, and years are spent by Olympians to reach those heights. Such effort distracts and disengages them from the more balanced, Allāh-serving mode that He wants. The Games must be replaced by small-scale,

    Echoes of Dawud and Jalut: Community sports vs the Olympic Games - Part 1
    Bleary-eyed and perhaps hoarse from much whooping and cheering during 15 days of viewing the television broadcasts of the 2016 Olympic Games (OG) in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, many devotees of this highest stage of sporting excellence now rue the end of it all. They are left with pleasant memories of the achievement of men and women from the global village, whose hopes and dreams of accolades and laurels have been realised, or lay in tatters. The many ‘lucky’ spectators who attended the over 306

About Red Kufi Books

The Red Kufi was popularly worn by Muslim men in Cape Town in days gone bye. 
No doubt there’s one carefully tucked away in the back of a cupboard in most Muslim homes here. 
The rooi kuffiyah, as it is commonly known, was an essential part of the late Shaykh Abdurraghiem Hasan Sallie’s attire. 

In brainstorming ideas for a rebranding of Daddy’s Books - the official publisher and distributor of Shaykh Abdurraghiem’s books - his love for the red kufi came up. This is how the name Red Kufi Books was born. 
At Red Kufi Books, we have made it our mission to call tirelessly to the first Quranic verse revealed and provoke the heart to the love of reading.
"I love words. I love learning new words that expand my vocabulary and bring new meaning to what I already know and that which I am yet to learn. I love to learn the etymology of words. The etymology of a single word can transcend multiple cultures and connect me to current civilisations and that of a by-gone era. I love languages. As it is in language, words are woven into tapestries. Ultimately, I love words of meaning, which move hearts and transform." Red Kufi Books writer
