One of the most important Hadith is a hadith called 'Hadith Jibreel.' It discusses the most important points of Islam and Imaan. Dont miss the chance to learn this hadith at the hands of 3 leading scholars: Sh.Maahir Al-Muaqili, Mufti Ismail Menk & Sh. Bilaal Jeebhai.
Mufti Menk and Bilal Jeebhai? In one programme? Strange strange times we live in.

@Imraan Mollagee Jazakumullahu khayran for the question. It's strange (to me) as an organisational representative who is aware of some of the behind-the-scenes dynamics. If appearances are to be believed then when Bilal is in the UK, he and Menk are on opposite ends of the ideological spectrum, as in a youtube video he (Bilal) addressing a crowd at the Salafi Green Lane Masjid speaks about how happy he is to be at a Salafi Masjid and laments the fact that there isn't a Salafi masjid in his home country. Menk on the other hand, on radio (Al-Ansaar) has criticised Salafism and advised parents not to send their children to study there (privately, I'm told his advice is different). However perhaps Bilal's attempts to convince South Africans that he's not a Salafi are working - he uses the words 'Deobandi Tableeghi background' in his AlKauthar profile, the last time I checked included a work by Maulana Ashraf Ali Thanwi on his website....and has included both Menk and Prof Dangor one of the least Salafi-inclined people I know in this upcoming programme. I would have taught he'd give the other Deenclass tutors a platform, viz Musaaid Dawood and Ismail Kamdar. In my opinion, it's about pulling a crowd. As for them being together in programmes before, in Cape Town yes, I'm aware of that. But in Durban no. I've been told by Menk and other South African ulama, when I've invited them to speak at ILM-SA conferences (and they declined) that Cape Town is a different matter entirely (it's more tolerant about these things). This post should come with a disclaimer...I have nothing against Salafis...in fact, on sunniforum it is said I'm a staunch Salafi (not true anymore - that would have applied in 2006)...I respect the moderate amongst them who are humble in their attitudes. My problem is with pretending to be someone you're not for the sake of winning numbers, and being inconsistent as a result thereof.

GUYS, can't we drop labels for one day in our lives. life is simpler when you just say two aalims will be together at the same programme. And the Deen will benefit

Mohamed; perhaps the aalims need to drop the labels themselves and be more consistent - whether the Imam of the haram is around or not.

I just chatted to Prof Dangor - he informed me he withdrew from the programme.
