THE LOVE FOR ANONYMITY

It is reported in the Hadith that on the Day of Qiyaamah, Hadhrat Uwais Qarni (rahmatullah alayh) will be admitted into Jannat in great pomp and splendour. He will be in the midst of seventy thousand Malaaikah (Angels) who will all be identical to him in resemblance.No one except those whom Allah Ta’ala wishes, will be able to recognize who Uwais Qarni is.

Energy Needs Take Centre Stage while Economy Loses Income

South Africa under President Cyril Ramaphosa is likely to prioritize energy security over its aspirations to decarbonization.1 The main goal is to prevent further damage to the economy, said James Mackay, the chief executive officer of the Energy Council of South Africa.2  This has come to involve extending the life of some of the state power utility Eskom Holdings SOC Ltd.’s coal-fired plants.3 The financial cost of this may be reduced access to concessional climate change – like the $8.8 billion just energy transition loan – and a decline in the competitiveness of South African exports as the European Union ramps up levies on imported products that have carbon-heavy production processes, Mackay said.4 “Energy security is fundamental to economic growth and activity,” Mack...
