Shaikh Muhammad ibn Yahya Ninowy visits Cape Town Azzawia, 28 January

ATLANTA based scholar and descendant of the Prophet Muhammad, Shaikh Muhammad ibn Yahya Ninowy, visited the Azzawia in Cape Town. The Shaikh was accompanied by his youger brother, Shaikh 'Isa.

In a brief talk the Shaikh said that the phrase “al-adab miftah ul-’ilm” (good conduct is the key to knowledge) was not just a statute, or a construct. It meant that a person had to have etiquette in everything – one’s relationship with other people, one’s relationship to one’s worship, one’s relationship with one’s Creator. Without this context, the application of the axiom was meaningless.
