Review essay Achmat Davids places the Cape Muslims on the South African linguistic map
M Haron
Tydskrif vir letterkunde , 2012,
Abstract: South Africa’s Cape Muslim religious leaders creatively contributed towards the formation of Afrikaans linguistics, an issue that the South African academia seemed to have ignored and overlooked. By the beginning of the 20th century, the literary output of these religious leaders developed to form a unique genre of literature; a genre that is popularly referred to as “Arabic-Afrikaans” within the South African linguistic circles. Achmat Davids (1939–98), who may be regarded as the doyen of “Cape Islamic Studies,” was among a handful of scholars who devoted much of his time to study carefully this type of literature. As a consequence of his labour, he produced one of the most significant contemporary works in South African linguistics. This review essay reflects upon the importance of Davids’ path-breaking and invaluable study, which was recently co-edited by Hein Willemse and Suleman E. Dangor.
Selected Sufi texts of Shaykh Yusuf: Translations and commentaries
M Keraan, M Haron
Tydskrif vir letterkunde , 2008,
Abstract: Shaykh Yusuf Al-Khalwati Al-Maqassari has made his mark in Southeast Asia as a heroic figure who fought valiantly against the Dutch. However, it was his position as a Sufi shaykh that catapulted him into prominence. Before and during his period of exile, the shaykh wrote a number of important texts on tasawwuf (Sufism) that have circulated among and influenced many of his companions and students. In this article we have translated three short treatises that had been attributed to him. Although none of them was written whilst he was in exile at the Cape of Good Hope between the time of his arrival there in1694 and the time of his death in 1699, he was able to disseminate its contents to members of the nascent Cape Muslim community who had come into contact with him.
Geology and Geochemical Exploration for Gold at Qeissan County, Blue Nile State, S-E Sudan.
Siddig, M. Elzien,Ahmed Haron ElTom
International Journal of Engineering Sciences & Research Technology , 2013,
Abstract: A Study of the geology and geochemical evolution of the basement rocks of the Blue Nile area shows that they can be placed into five tectonic terrains; amphibolite inclusions unconformably overlain by heterogeneous and more lithologically varied super crustal assemblage of intercalated Para-gneisses and calc silicate rocks all of which have been largely metamorphosed in the amphibolites facies, all of these rocks have been cut by several intrusive phases. The present work provides a detailed account of the geology of the Qeissan area, rocks and the intrusions cutting them, their stratigraphy, structure, petrography and geochemistry are discussed. High-grade gneisses and low grade volcano-sedimentary rocks underlain the Qeissan area. They have been folded and faulted extensively. Orogenic plutons and an orogenic ring complex have intruded these successions. A mylonitic quartz-feldthpathic zone of 3 to 6 kilometers wide is trending northeast to southwest hosting the auriferous quartz veins. An oriented study (grid soil sampling, quartz veins and their wall rock alteration zone sampling) has been carried out to determine the anomalous area. All samples, (soil, rock & alteration zone) are prepared, analyzed and the results are interpreted using different software’s. The soil samples shows a rather low gold grades comparing with those of quartz veins. Most of the gold is found in quartz veins and their wall-rock alteration zones. The auriferous veins are grey to milky in colour, about 1 – 3 m wide and 20 – 300 m long; often pinching and swelling up to 1 – 4 km along their strikes. Systematic surface exploration resulted into; profile soil sampling, 0.1 – 0.92 ppm Au; rock chip sampling, 0.1 – 4.27 ppm of Au.

Africa International journal of management education and Governance , 2016, DOI: -
Abstract: The purpose of this study was to evaluate HRM practices affecting employees in the Agricultural Sector. The study specifically sought to establish how HRM practices are integrated in Kenya Agriculture Livestock Research Organization (KALRO) – Katumani in Machakos County. It also examined the benefits of HRM practices in the agriculture sector as well as the challenges facing the managers when employing HRM practices. The study was guided by the theory of HRM as proposed.The target population was 220 employees and the management staff drawn from the four departments namely; Human resource, ICT, Research and production and field services. To obtain employees who participated in the study from each department, simple random sampling was applied to select 80 employees out of 220 Purposive sampling was used in order to include the managers or Heads of Departments while simple random sampling was applied to select the employees who participated in the research study. The researcher used questionnaire, and interview methods to collect data. Further, data analysis was done using descriptive statistical techniques such as calculations of means, frequencies, percentages and tables. Information collected through interview schedules was analyzed qualitatively. The study established that majority of the respondents were issued with letters of appointments to occupy their current positions in the organization. Many respondents said that the organization practiced free and fair recruitment and selection process. There were chances of promotion to higher positions in the organization. The organization carried out orientation and induction to its newly recruited staff. The study findings revealed that the organization indeed value employee training. The institution did not in any way carter for the cost of training of the employees. The management created open and comfortable working conditions. The study established that most employees have never been rewarded whatsoever since joining the institution. The respondents rated the reward system in the organization as ineffective. The study findings revealed that the organization did not provide any form of motivation to its employees in order to enhance their performance. The study further recommended that the organization should invest on providing training to its employees to enhance their performance. It also recommended that the organization should develop recognition and reward system for its employees. Finally, the study recommended that the organization should adopt employee motivation as a strategy to enhance their performance.
Religion and the media: reflections on their position and relationship in Southern Africa
Muhammed Haron
Global Media Journal : African Edition , 2011, DOI: 10.5789/4-1-11
Abstract: In this essay an attempt is made to reflect upon, and to provide, a general overview of the position of the media and religion and the relationship between these two sectors in Southern Africa. Instead of covering the vast Southern African region, it will confine itself to reviewing the position and interconnection of these elements in specific countries. Before contextualising religion and the media in a given region, there is a need to construct a theoretical framework that will assist the understanding and nature of this relationship.

International Journal of Computer Science Issues , 2012,
Abstract: Disaster preparation and management, such as emergency evacuation, is very essential for public places. This is especially true for Al-Masjid An-Nabawi which accommodates millions of Muslims around the world during Umrah and Hajj seasons. This paper describes the evaluation process carried out to determine the most suitable software for the purpose of studying the evacuation process of Al-Masjid An-Nabawi. This process starts by identifying the project requirements such as the scope and nature of the project, information and data available (e.g. floor-plan, total occupancy of the mosque), duration of the project and the budget. This is then followed by the survey on all available crowd simulation software. Assessments were carried out in terms of degree of validation, background nature of the software, the models used and features available. These were among the main criteria used in short-listing the potential software to be purchased. Observations and identifications on congestion-prone areas, as case studies, were also performed.
Graph Colouring Algorithm for Validating Labelled 2D Line Drawing Objects
M.Z. Matondang,A.A.Samah,H. Haron,H. A. Majid
International Journal of Computer Science Issues , 2011,
Abstract: Line labelling has been used to determine whether a two-dimensional (2D) line drawing object is a possible or impossible representation of a three-dimensional (3D) solid object. However, the results are not sufficiently robust because the existing line labelling methods do not have any validation method to verify their own result. In this research paper, the concept of graph colouring is applied to a validation technique for a labelled 2D line drawing. As a result, a graph colouring algorithm for validating labelled 2D line drawings is presented. A high-level programming language, MATLAB R2009a, and two primitive 2D line drawing classes, prism and pyramid are used to show how the algorithms can be implemented. The proposed algorithm also shows that the minimum number of colours needed to colour the labelled 2D line drawing object is equal to 3 for prisms and for pyramids, where n is the number of vertices (junctions) in the pyramid objects.

Asian Social Science , 2010, DOI: 10.5539/ass.v6n4p31
Abstract: This study aims to investigate the human capital expenditure, the expenditure share of human capital investment expenditure and the probability of having human capital investment among the women in female-headed households. The data was obtained from a nationwide study on "Economic wellbeing and human capital investment of female-headed household" funded by the Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation (MOSTI), government of Malaysia, under the e-Science Grant. Four states (Kedah, Pahang, Negeri Sembilan and Selangor) from four zones were selected using simple random technique together with 1,000 potential respondent lists provided by local school authorities with 68% of response rate. The study found that women in female-headed household spent 21% of their yearly income in reading material followed by health (18%) and personal care (15%). Similarly, expenditure share 67% yearly income was spend on reading materials followed by health (63%) and personal care (58%) Further analysis revealed those have a higher household income (OR = 0.023 ; P<0.05) and smaller household size (OR = 0.028 ; P<0.05) were found to be significant invested part of their household expenses for their own human capital purposes.

Siti Z. Z. Abidin,Nasiroh Omar,Muhammad H.M. Radzi and Mohammad B.C. Haron
International Journal of New Computer Architectures and their Applications , 2011,
Abstract: Currently, an online forum is becoming one of the trends in social media. Social media allow people to communicate interactively so they can share their feelings and opinions. Even though, they are communicating through text, such digital element permits them to express their emotions. The information that is conveyed through texts has the potential to influent peoplea€ s mind sets. In this paper, we propose to quantify peoplea€ s perception in an online forum by analyzing their words. The number of occurrences for significant words is counted in order to measure their perception based on emotion and issues that they are discussing. This new approach significantly reduce the time for collecting, processing, and analyzing data, as well as visualizing results, specifically for seeking publica€ s perception and emotion of specific issues.
