Nabi Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam said: “This Ilm (of the Shariah) will be borne by the pious of every successive generation.  They (the Ulama-e-Haqq) will drive away from it (this Shariah) the interpolations of the deviates, the falsehood of the false-mongers and the interpretations of the ignoramuses.” (Mishkaat)


On Thursday, 6 April 2017, a memorial held for Ahmed Kathrada was held at the St. George’s Cathedral in Cape Town. One of the Priest-type speakers in the Cathedral was ‘Sheikh Igshaan Taliep (United Ulema-e-Soo Council of South Africa)’. How can a real Muslim – let alone an Aalim – ever be in a Cathedral?

So who is Igshaan Taliep? And who is the ‘United Ulema-e-Soo Council of South Africa’?


As far as Igshaan Taliep is concerned, the MJC very recently posted the following message:

“MJC First Deputy President, Ml. Abdul Khaliq Ebrahim Allie is currently in Fez, Morocco as part of a South African delegation at the Muhammad IV African Ulama Conference. The Rector of IPSA, MJC Executive member and President of UUCSA Sh. M. Ihsaan Taliep is also in attendance. The conference aims to foster unity and better working relations between African countries.”

Igshaan Taliep has the following positions according to MJC:

1) The rector of IPSA. IPSA is a corrupt organization which wants women to attend the Masaajid. IPSA does not make Hijaab. Fussaaq like Jasser Auda and Dawood Terblanche are part of the corrupt IPSA.

2) MJC executive member. This is a clear sign of the MJC betraying the Deen. A Mudhil who attends a Cathedral is part of the MJC! (Sic)  How can a person who openly violates the Shariah be part of a genuine Ulama organization? But the MJC themselves are deviated scoundrels.

3) President of UUCSA. This refers to the so-called bogus Shaitaani UUCSA of Middelburg-Gatesville (Cape Town). This Middelburg-Cape UUCSA is for much Haraam, Bid’ah, Baatil and Shaitaaniyyat.

At the above conference, photos were taken. Igshaan Taliep is in a photo with women. So, he intermingles with women. He takes photos. He appears on TV. He does not observe proper Hijaab. He attends Cathedrals. He participates in Haraam functions. He is not a proper Shaafi. Instead, he is a Faasiq-Mudhil.


Now you may decide for yourself what type of Ulama this Middelburg-Cape UUCSA are in reality when their very own president attends Cathedrals. One woman even remarked: ‘Sis, he went to a Cathedral!’


On the other hand, we have Faasiq Ebrahim Bham who recently behaved like a Zindeeq at the Kathrada funeral. Read our detailed articles on this issue. Whatever we wrote about Ebrahim Bham of the Middelburg UUCSA applies equally to Igshaan Taliep, the corrupt president of the corrupt Middelburg-Cape UUCSA. So the famous proverb of ‘birds of a feather flock together’ is practically true. You have the president of the Shaitaani UUCSA, Igshaan Taliep behaving like a priest by attending a cathedral and you have another spokesperson of the corrupt UUCSA, Ebrahim Bham, behaving like a reverend at the Kathrada interfaith! So, the Middelburg-Gatesville UUCSA have at least two clergymen in their ranks!

Now let us proceed further:


  • Yusuf Patel is the secretary-general of UUCSA. His ugly photo appears in the corrupt Muslim Views trashcan paper. Now, this photo is Haraam even according to Ebrahim Bham’s favorite Mufti Taqi. This photo is Haraam according to Darul Uloom Azaadville and Darul Uloom Zakariyya. This photo is unanimously Haraam according to all the authorities of the Shariah! So, he is a Faasiq! Will their famous MMB-cronies and their Darul Uloom friends be able to defend them and all their Fisq?
  • Then, Mufti AK Hoosen is the Ustaad of Yusuf Patel. Mufti AK called him a Kalb (dog) because he betrayed his Ustaad and he is betraying the Deen. He is so terrible that he was even part of Sanha who lured Mufti AK to the BCCSA court. Now imagine that Aalim who even takes his Ustaad to court simply because his Ustaad says that Rainbow Chickens are Haraam. They speak of respecting difference of opinion, but they take their very own Ustaad to court over a difference of opinion! Now, just imagine the type of UUCSA we are dealing with here. Their members don’t have any respect for even their Ustaad. That is why they bark – something like ‘woof woof’!
  • Mufti AK branded SANHA as ‘Scholars For Dollars’. Sanha could not tolerate this as the whole world was listening to what Mufti AK was saying. Now consider this Yusuf Patel who is part of sanha and the secretary-general of the Shaitaani UUCSA, if he really serving the Deen, he would not be bothered about the reputation of Sanha, his own reputation and the reputation of the balance of the bogus UUCSA scholars for Dollars! So, this shows that they are after name and fame!

Observe carefully. Thus far, only three Fussaaq of the Shaytaani UUCSA have been mentioned:

  1. Uucsa’s president – Faasiq Igshaan Taliep – the cathedral-clergyman. His photo also is in papers!
  2. Uucsa’s famous spokesperson – Faasiq Ebrahim Bham – the churchman – no wonder he is called a reverend! No surprise at all. His photos are in the star paper just like the priests!
  3. Uucsa’s secretary general – Yusuf Patel – who takes his Ustaad to court! Who takes photos and his photo appears in the paper. The title ‘Kalb’ which Mufti AK honoured him with, DESCRIBES him perfectly. Barking dogs seldom bite! He barks much about sowing seeds of division!

Now let us proceed to the members of the Middelburg-Gatesville UUCSA.


  1. Jamiatul Ulama South Africa – Fordsburg Jamiatush Shayaateen.
  2. Muslim Judicial Council – MJC Shaytaans.

The Molvis of the Fordsburg Jamiat appear on TV. Radio ‘Islam’ presenters are on ITV! The MJC is on TV! They violate Hijaab, pose for photos, mingle with women, etc. etc. We have a written an entire article on these two Mudhilleen councils.

  1. Jamiatul Ulama KZN – a bunch of Mudhilleen.

This Ahmed Mahomedy – president of KZN Jamiat spoke much rubbish at the recent SAUF conference. He was also one of the presidents of SAUF! And even Mufti Motara of Darul Uloom Azaadville criticized the issue of women attending the Masjid. But SAUF is for women attending the Masjid. And the KZN Jamiat indulges in animate photography as well. So, just imagine – we are dealing with deviates here.

  1. Sunni Jamiatul Ulama – Bid’ati Juhhaal
  2. Sunni Ulama Council – Bid’ati Juhhaal

Both the above councils are Bid’ati Moulood councils. These so-called Sunni councils don’t make proper Hijaab. They indulge in photography, etc etc.

  1. Council of Ulama Eastern Cape
  2. Eastern Cape Islamic Congress


Both the above organizations are lost. Junaid Adam is a carrion Molvi like Mf Siraj Desai and Navlakhi. It is easy for them to say that we are causing disunity, but who are the actual ones trampling on all the laws of the Shariah? Is it the Middelburg-Gatesville UUCSA or the Ulama-e-Haq who oppose them???


Each and every council above is a deviated council. Their members indulge in Fisq, appear on TV, indulge in animate photography, etc etc. Their ‘leaders’ attend churches, cathedrals, etc. A true Aalim cannot be part of an organization which tramples on the laws of Hijaab. Their ‘Islam’ is a watered-down form of Islam. It is not difficult to understand why they are called ‘Scholars for Dollars’ according to the Ulama-e-Haq! They are simply not interested in the Shariah! Hence, they search for loopholes in the Deen!

When the president of the Middelburg-Gatesville UUCSA is so corrupt, then just imagine those who deliberately fall under him! No organization is forced to be part of the Middelburg-Gatesville UUCSA. Yet, they enjoy being in the company of Fussaaq and Mudhilleen. So, this is clearly misleading the Ummah!


Keeping in mind the above facts and the type of Middelburg-Gatesville UUCSA-deviates the Ulama-e-Haq are dealing with, it should be clear that the UUCSA name debacle is not merely a fight over a name. Who would want to have the name UUCSA when the name UUCSA has no real reputation anymore? Igshaan Taliep has blackened the name of his UUCSA by attending a cathedral. Ebrahim Bham has done the same by attending Haraam functions like the Kathrada Kaafir-type funeral service. Yusuf Patel has blackened the name of UUCSA by taking his own Ustaad to court! So they deceiving people with their name!

Many of its members indulge in animate photos. Many of its members are on TV. Many of its members don’t make proper Hijaab. Many of its members mingle with women. So, they are betraying Allah Ta’ala and His Rasool Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam! So, it is not just a name issue. The Ulama-e-Haq don’t support the Middelburg-Gatesville uucsa! At the end of the day, the name means nothing. It is a fight against Baatil! May Allah reward all those who speak against the Shaitaani Middelburg-Gatesville uucsa and all the Shayaateen associated with them. Ameen. There can be no unity amongst the Ulama-e-Haq and the Ulama-e-Soo! The Ulama-e-Soo need to compromise their Baatil for the sake of unity – not the other way round!





A needless moon controversy  was created by Fake uucsa, the NNB Jamiat and the KZN Jamiat by their refusal to abide by the Shariah when the  sighting of the Hilaal for Rabiul Awwal was confirmed by the genuine UUCSA and by  the National Hilaal Committee of S.A.. Commenting on this debacle caused by the irrational and emotional attitude of the  Fake uucsa, Mufti Abdul Kader Hoosen commented as follows:

“I am being inundated now with  messages. People want to know regarding the moon. Even last night I was receiving messages but I did not respond because I was at Darul Uloom Zakariyya Hadhrat  with Maulana Zamaan Sahib (Hafizahullah) who happened to be there.

Now let us put things in their proper perspective.  …………….    Remember the moon of yesterday after Maghrib was more than 28 hours – 28 hours and 27 minutes or something like that. So anyway it was 100 % easily visible if the horizon is clear.

Then whilst I was there at Zakariyya last night about 8:15 or 8:20, I received a message on my phone from Mujlisul Ulama and they confirmed that the moon has been sighted and I even went to Hadhrat Mufti Radahul Haq Sahib, our honourable Ustaad and Shaikh, and said:  “Hazrat Chaan hogaya he, Alhamdulillah!” (Hazrat, the moon has been conformed.) i.e. today, Jumiraat ku, will be the 1st of Rabiul Awwal and the 1st of December.

And this morning I phoned Tubela after Fajr and told him: “Tell all the people there, our presenters and so forth, that today is the 1st Rabiul Awwal.” So we accept the decision of Mujlisul Ulama. Regarding uucsa (i.e. the so-called uucsa of the NNB Jamiat of Fordsburg – Jamiat Northern Cape) and so forth, they say that they had not reached consensus. Well, that is their problem. It has  nothing to do with us. We don’t follow uucsa, and remember we are  an autonomous body and we are not bound by uucsa. We are bound by the truth.  Alhmadulillah that is what we follow.

As far as the so-called uucsa goes, they have MJC, they have Jamiatul Ulama KwaZulul Natal, they have Jamiatul Ulama Fordsburg, they have Sunni Ulama Council, Sunni Jamiatul Ulama, Eastern Cape Ulama Council, Northern Ulama Council and other bodies.

So if they have not reached conclusion, it has nothing to do with us. We follow what is the truth. The sighting took place; Mujlisul Ulama confirmed it, and we at Channel Islam International in the world accept it and today is the 1STRabiulAwwal

You know everyday I send out a tweet, and Alhmadulillah as I sent out the tweet this morning as I do every day after Fajr,  I said that today is the 1st Rabiul Awwal. So uucsa must sort out their own views, but we continue announcing that today is the 1st of Rabiul Awwal, and we will play our Juz also accordingly. Do a simple calculation.  Just go to the Arab News which I did already after Fajr, I do that every day. You go to the Arab News and Saudi newspapers and you will see there in Saudi Arabia today is the 2nd Rabiul Awwal. So if they accept that today is the 1st, Alhmadulillah. Otherwise you will have a crazy situation that tomorrow Friday according to uucsa or so-called uucsa or whatever you want to say, it will be the 1st, while in  Saudi Arabia it  will be the 3rd,  but will be the 2nd Rabiul Awwal in South Africa (according to the confirmed sighting of Mujlisul Ulama)

 How can you have 2 days difference in this day and age? Something unheard of actually. So therefore at Channel Islam International, Alhamdulillah, we are an autonomous body, we don’t take instructions from A B C, as I always say, we don’t curry favour with any person, any organisation, any politician and political party. For you, the Ummah  Muslimah, the date in South Africa today it is the 1st Rabiul Awwal 1438 as confirmed by Mujlisul Ulama and we follow their ruling in this regard.  A sighting took place so there is no need  (for dispute). Remember if you are following the Hanafi school, then that is binding and you have to accept it. This is nothing to do with politics, nothing to do with playing of games,

 Wal Haqqu wal Haqqu yuttaba’a (It is the Haqq, and the Haqq has to be (incumbently) followed!)  Remember the truth must be followed and that is what we have to do. Insha-Allah, will play this message again, one or two times so that the Ummah comes to know.

South Africa and whoever else follows South Africa, today is the 1stRabiul Awwal. We can’t be waiting for this organization and that organization to come to ‘consensus’. The Mujlisul Ulama has announced it and that is good enough for us, we  are satisfied, Alhmadulillah!

Wama Taufeeqi illa billah. May Almighty Allah give us the ability to follow the truth without fear and favour. Jazakallah khairun my brother but I have to get this message out because so many people are sending me messages.


“Mufti, you mentioned with regards to Hanafi School. Is there difference in other schools with regards to the sighting of the moon and testimonies?

According to the Shafis they have what they call : “Liqulli baladatin rooyatu hum”, i.e. Every town should go by its own sighting. But today if you take the Shafis, majority of them have left that verdict  and they follow the Hanafi School. You will see in other months also, they have 4 or 5 places of sighting, and then they accept it.  I mention particularly  the Hanafi school because in the Hanafi school  one sighting its sufficient everywhere. So therefore — and we know there was a sighting  and the Ulama of Mujlisul Ulama accepted it–  that’s fine.

So to be on the safe side I just mentioned about the Hanafi School. But today the Shafis also follow the Hanafi school, most of them. So therefore we should remember, everybody accept it Alhamdulillah. Those people or organisations who don’t want to accept it, we don’t impose upon you bhai, you can follow whatever you want to, we have confidence in Mujlisul Ulama and we follow them in this regard and I told you what unfolded the sequence of events, and I only saw these messages coming just now, so therefore I have to go on air. But not last night — only  1 to 2 messages. But now my phone is getting full I see. So many people sending messages saying that there is no consensus, well we are not interested in their consensus we say today is the 1 Rabiul Awwal 1438  Alhamdulillah!


Mufti Sahib what seems to be the difference of opinion, or why consensus cannot be reached? I mean was it not straight forward like other months?

That you need to ask uucsa because they have their organisation and if one organisation says they are not satisfied then they must come on air on their radios stations or we are prepared to give them our platform and they must come and speak. I am not speaking on behalf of Mujlisul Ulama, I am just confirming that what Mujlisul Ulama did is 100 % correct, and we endorsed that Alhamdulillah!  We  have nothing to do with uucsa. We are not affiliated to them, and Alhamdulillah, we pass our own verdict so we say we agree 100% with Mujlisul Ulama. And if you don’t know who is Mujlisul Ulama, it is Hadhrat Maulana Ahmad Sadiq Desai Sahib (Hafizahullah) and his Ulama, and we have confidence on them regarding this issue and we say today is the 1st Rabiul Awwal Alhamdulillah!
