Bias and negative reporting against Islam has become a very real phenomenon in the media, especially in the international press.

The Darul Ihsan Media Desk primarily monitors the media for Islamaphobic (anti-Islamic) comments and anti-Islamic sentiments made in the mainstream media and interacts positively with media portals conveying the Islamic perspective.

Breast Feeding


Generally breast feeding is the best nourishment and prevention from many diseases.

Religions like Islam highly recommend breast feeding up to two years because breasts is best. In fact, if the mother is unable to breast feed then too it's recommended that a foster mother or breast feeding nurse be employed to feed the child - this shows the importance of breast milk for babies. Please encourage this practice through your columns.

Eastern Languages


 All South Africans are entitled to retain their religious and cultural identities through respectable means, language is one powerful identity which is deeply embedded in the hearts of many many people.The axing of Eastern languages from our schools must be seen in the correct context. The department's argument, is the low number of pupils that make-up for classes which is understandable. As parents, let us then increase the numbers and encourage our children to participate in the respective languages according to the culture or religions they belong. In this manner the Dept. may be motivated to continue and sustain the classes.

It is strange that the media fails to mention all that is happening in Afghanistan (dominated by the US and its allies) who now carry the responsibility of all that happens there.The ongoing abuse of women, which is undoubtedly un-Islamic, is an indication that the occupation of Afganistan is failing miserably in terms of all the "grand" objectives that were pronounced for the country. Today, the US-occupied Afghanistan has become the number one drug producer in the world.

The sophisticated method used to peddle drugs is indeed mind-boggling. These unscrupulous people have even used school children to do their dirty work and worst of all, made drug addicts of innocent children. The public has to be vigilant and partner with the police in the fight against drug dealing otherwise our children could become write-off's and junkies in the future.

Power Shortages

Power Shortages

The problem of power shortages is far more serious than we actually think.Power shortages have become in the last year a genuine and serious problem; and in some areas a real crises with frequent interuptions. Is someone going to make a "killing" by selling generators like other countries? Maybe someone from the electricity dept. should explain the reasons to the public - to be verified by the experts.

It really came as a shock to us that so many people believe in the art of predictions through astrology, horoscopes, palm-reading, etc.Furthermore we are shocked to learn the considerable influence astrology plays in the life of people to the extent of being "married" to a banana tree. Let the people cast all superstitions, bad omens, etc. aside. God Almighty is fully in control of the universe & nothing happens besides His Will. If all the people believe this, we shall have nothing to fear about.
