Habib Muhammad as-Saqqaf in Cape Town

Habib Muhammad is a direct descendent of the Prophet Muhammad (SAW) through the Hussaini line and hails from a prominent Hijazi family. He has studied at the feet of scholars such as Abdul Qadir As-Saqqaf, Habib Abu Bakr al-Mashur, Sayyid Miuhammad 'Alawi al-Maliki and Imam Ahmad Mashur al-Haddad. He spoke at the Azzawia on Friday and underlined the value of authentic knowledge and the status of the Prophet Muhammad (SAW), asking one to consider how the Prophet (SAW) dealt with his enemies when he would show mercy, even under duress.
