Dr. Ebrahim Rasool is the former Ambassador of South Africa to the US. He has a legacy of going to prison with Nelson Mandela and eventually being a minister in the first elected South African government after the fall of the Apartheid, and then an elected Premier of the Western Cape, the largest province in South Africa. I cherish our friendship and partnership on a number of educational projects, alhamduillah, and I am honoured with this review that he gave on my book, Maqasid al Shariah : As Philosophy of Islamic Law – Jasser Auda (video link above). He mentioned that the book revolutionized his thinking and made him resolve the dilemma of addressing the exigencies of governance with Islamic thought.
