It has not spared an experienced Muslim jurist Abdul Qadir’ Awda a lawyer saying that law is largely the product of the society.
Muslim Association of Malawi (MAM) has refuted allegations that the secretariat is biased to candidates contesting on the senior positions.
Speaking in an interview with Malawi Muslim official website the executive secretary of the Muslim Association of Malawi Brother Saiti Jambo asserted the electoral body’s respect of the association’s constitution making elections free, fair and transparent.
“Saying the secretariat is interested in some candidates contesting on senior positions is very unfortunate. What the Muslim community should know is that MAM is corporate body that is governed by the constitution”, Jambo said.
Jambo said MAM constitution mandates national executive members to supervise the district committees’ elections.
He further applauded the electoral body for safeguarding the constitution enacted in 1963.
“The first phase of the organization’s district and national elections conducted in 26 districts of the country has been direction focused that will formulate better and collaborative administration of the association,” said Saiti Jambo.
The Muslim Association of Malawi is conducting districts and national elections of the organization starting from 11 December and will finally elect the national executive month end of January 2011.
Lets hope the allegations are not true.If they are true, then the integrity and agendas of these people becomes questionable.My question to MAM is, "how accessible is their constitution? Where I am,the members of our Islamic mother body are most of the times engulfed in rangles.the question that people ask is, "why?".my hopes are that, this is not the case with MAM.If such things happen, how do you resolve them amicably?
THESE ALLEGATIONS ARE TRUE, WHATEVER ADVISE CAN BE PUT FORWARD TO THE ELECTROAL COMMISION, NOTHING WILL BEAR FRUITS. WHAT THEY SHOLUD KNOW IS MUSLIS WILL BE AT LIBERTY TO REJECT THE OUT OF THE ELECTIONS PARTICULARLY THE NATIONAL CHARMAN. SO LETS BE REALISTIC AND TRY TO WORK WITHIN CODE ETHICS OF THE ELCTIONS CODE. IF WE ARE NOT CAREFUL MAM WILL NOT CHANGE FOR THE BETTER INSTEADY IT WILL BE WORSE THAN BEFORE. LETS WORK UP MUSLIMS AND BE CIVILIZED. I HAVE LEARNT, ALOT OF CANDIDATES ARE DISHING OUT MONEY TO VOTE FORE THEM, IF YOU CAN SCRUTINIZE THEM, THEY EVEN FAILED TO BRING SOMETHING TAMGIBLE AT DISTRICT LEVEL, WHAT ARE THEY GOING TO DO FOR US AT REGIONAL OR NATIONAL LEVEL RATHER. LETS PUT NEW BLOOD OTHERWISE WE HAVE TIRED WITH THE VERY SAME PEOPLE
is it the same hassan chimwala that i know?Any way look at ur background.Mind ur commet
Ha ha ha ha what do u expect from MAM? The whole MAM is run by my fellow Yaos and u know how unprofessional they can be.
If u look at how untidy their offices are, for a whole Muslim mother body then u can tell what comes out of that building they call their offices.
I tell u there are no fair elections, they are bulldozing their way to remain in power. SHAME! SHAME!
Being a yao its not a problem.You mean even if cud be u cudnt manage the office?Ithink its the type of the pipo we have in the front line what they know best is………….dont add onions on my lips
criticism with respect is essential. You know brothers that ashaming others can not bear any fruit.Worth still let us call spade a spade. If we know the anomalies conducted during election, go straight and relate them for the public opinion and not using abusive phrases against individuals or any tribe.This is not islamic.MAM please take responsibility of giving a good picture of muslim society by conducting a free and fair election.
This is my message to MAM Secretariat and the whole ummah.
The whole thing called elections should be abolished and scrapped off from the so called MAM constitution.
Let us all adopt the islamic way and Sunnat of our Nabi (SAW)and that of the Sahaba (RA)of choosing a leader.Thus the ulama and all stake holders need to sit down together and make mashwela (mashura).From that gathering choose one to be an AMEER just to lead the mashura.
The people at this round table then each will say the name of a person (to be called'AMEER' whom they think is capable or has potential to lead the organisation, MAM.It is very important that people must choose (mention) names of people based SOLERY on their leadership capabilities to lead MAM and guide people towards righteousness, uphold sharia principles and islamic morals.It should never be based on personalfriendship,political,financial muscle or wealth etc.Bear in mind that when Allah judges a person,He does not look at wealth,race tribe etc rather HE looks at TAQWA – fear of Allah.Also remember Allah looks at our NIYYAT( intentions).
So after all names have been given out by individuals at the mashura, with the guidance and blessings of Allah,the Ameer of the mashura will come up with the name of the AMEER or chairman as you want him to be called, bearing in mind the conditions mention above.
This is the islamic proceedure of choosing a leader and above all the sunnat of our Nabi SAW.When Allah wanted to create ADAM (AS), He called for views of the Angels ie He had mashura with Angels.The caliphate went by mashura -no campaighning,no mud slinging, no money spent,no unnecessary expences incurred.
It is mentioned in hadith that ALLAH withholds his intended punishment/ catastrophe for a people when the people conduct mashura for any particular issue at hand.It is sad that the so called learned people in islamic laws and the ulamas in our society are in forefront adopting practices that are on the contrary.What will the followers do? It's total chaos and waywardness, more diversion away from islam.And do you think Allah will just sit and watch?? NO He will definately respond accordingly with punishments, withdraw of his guidance and Rahmat,chose for us cruel leaders, no duas answered we will cry loud out for help form Him but He will not hear us.
Beware of the heavy punishment for "dhulmu" (kupondereza deen ya allah).
My plea to you all our leaders PLEASE do not delibately invoke Allah's wrath on ourselves.Up hold the morals and principles of Islam and sunnat of our nabi(saw)wewill all succeed and Allah mercy wil descend upon us.
May ALLAH guide to the straight path and save us from his punisment-AMEEN
