I have prepared this booklet from articles taken from the book MISKAHT AL MASABIH. From the chapters of Faith, (Iman) chapter of the Grave and Fitan. I have read them and then summarised them to the best of my ability.
I would like to extend my gratitude and thanks to all the brothers for their help, advice and time in compiling this booklet. My special thanks to Brother Ismael Fulat, Tariq Dad, Ahmed Bilal, Brother Basharat and Dastaghir Ali who have helped me in many various ways. May Allah subhana wa ta’ala accept their work and reward them in the hereafter. Without their help I would have had great difficulty in finishing this booklet.
Every effort has been made to ensure that this booklet is accurate. It contains the basic information about Muslims beliefs. If for any reason that I have made any mistake’s I pray to Allah subhana wa ta’ala to forgive me, and I ask of you the reader to let me know of them so that I may rectify them for the next edition .

...Explain Limitations of MarketResearch
Part of planning marketresearch is outlining the flaws and limitations of the research itself. Any weaknesses in the research must be identified so they can be improved on. There are a number of limitations that may affect the results found by marketresearch.
Reliability is vital when trying to find out information about large target populations. To avoid poor reliability, the sample chosen to participate in the research should be representative of the whole target population. The correct target sample must be established so that reliability is not a limitation of the research.
To improve poor reliability due to target sample, a list of the target population could be created and then have a number of people selected from that list. It is important to include people who may hold different views for example, if 20% of the target population is male, and then 20% of the target sample should be male also. Having a large sample size also improves the reliability of the information.
If Thorpe Park were to conduct research into how many people preferred Swarm compared to those that prefer Colossus, they would need to carefully select those from the public that represent the entire population. This could involve using...

Data protection act is to protect customers personal detail, this may limited business marketresearch as business can only used the detail for the purpose that they have promised with customers therefore business cannot used the details for other purpose which may undertake their research on their customers groups.

Seminar Activity: Ethics in the News
You tutor will identify some stories in the media that have interesting ethical dimensions. Try to be on time as this will always be right at the beginning of the seminar. You have to find an ethical issue with a dilemma for the decision-maker(s) as your assignment essay. Ethics in the News can be a very useful start to your search!
SEMINAR ONE: CASE STUDY
The Case of the Holiday (based on actual events)
This case concerns a young medium sized advertising agency in Germany. It had had grown rapidly in the four years since it was founded and had just opened a new office in the US. The company operates in a highly competitive market in which failure to meet customers’ deadlines incurs substantial penalties. Work is almost exclusively project-based, in a high pressure but largely informal environment where teams predominate and hierarchy is little in evidence. The company pays well, and its employees are highly skilled, overwhelmingly graduates and equally overwhelmingly young with over 35 year-olds a rarity.
Employees work an average of 50 hours a week and when deadlines are tight some arrive as early as 5 a.m. and leave as late as 1 a.m. If there is a personnel ‘problem’ it is that turnover is high. Employees tend either to be dismissed quickly after their unsuitability emerges or leave voluntarily after only two or three years. While...
Fast Fashion Brands
By Sehee An
Due Date: 8/09/2014
Background research and short explanation
Although the global economic crisis has weakened consumer confidence there is a remarkable consumption phenomenon in fashion market. Fast fashion is a new word used in fashion scene to say that designs move from runaway speedily so as to take the latest fashion at Fashion Week in both the spring and the fall of every year. These trends are designed and produced fast and cheaply to enable the mainstream consumer to take benefit of contemporary clothing styles with a lower price. This concept of quick manufacturing at economical price is applied in large retail companies such as Zara, H&M, and Topshop. The arrival of international retailers and the unbounded desires of the style-conscious consumer have raised demand for the fast fashion industry in Australia and the revenue observed to grow by 8.7% each year over the past five years through 2013-14 to $1.1 billion. The boom of fast-fashion brand in Australia has begun in earnest since 2011 when Topshop opened in Sydney. Fast fashion brands have been making the customers’ behaviour and fashion life style with various advantages such as large scale store, cheaper price and diverse fashion items.
It is referred to the report (updated by IBISWorld) which shows the past trend of Australian clothing retailing in order to understand the fashion industry. The report says...
...and local as our target market.
Empanada is commonly found in banchettos, food kiosk in malls, and in some food villages across the metro. There are two types of empanada which was introduced in the Philippines, the Batac Empanada and the Vigan Empanada. Vigan Empanada has thinner crust and more pale in color while Laoag or Batac Empanada has thicker crust and brighter in colour. Empanada was made of rice flour and it is composed of viganlongganisa, cabbage, egg and papaya.
At first empanada did not much click on the market because the empanada market was used to is the baked empanda which was made of dough but as days passed empanada have been widely known throughout the metro. Empanada was described by the market as the “Gastronomic food of the North”. Some tourist also said that their tour in the country would not be complete if they do not eat empanada which they were craving for a long time. Our product is integrated with herbs and spices that can be very healthy and delicious at the same time. We have innovated the product in the way that customers or market cannot find it as an empanada but the organic empanada. We have integrated the empanada into a crepe style of serving and we offer different varieties of it such as malunggay-cheesybeef, kutsay and beef, basil con carne, chicken pesto etc. In this way our product could be very unique and healthy. An empanada business is a...
...P3- Cadburys use of marketresearch that contributes to the development of its market plans.
Cadburys used different methods to complete a marketresearch for their product ‘Cadburys Snaps’. All the techniques they used influenced the way they launched and produced their new product.
Cadburys first identified a market through a rise in modern society. With modern technologies people are often found to have a night in, with things such as ‘Girls Nights’ becoming popular. Cadburys noticed that there would be a market for snacks, for these type of events and ‘lazy days, something that is ‘easy to share and contains enough pieces in the pack for everyone’. Cadburys have acknowledged the problem and have created a solution: ‘Cadbury Snaps are individual chocolate curves, available in a variety of flavours. There are approximately 40 curves in each pack. With so many pieces in each pack and with Snaps available in a variety of flavours, Snaps are an ideal chocolate sharing product.’ This criteria fits into the needs for this type of market as well as Cadburys finding a target market: ‘young adults (20-35 years old) who are sociable and enjoy spending time with their friends and family.’ Cadburys have found a problem and offered a solution to a target market that is likely to purchase the product.
As part of Cadburys...
...MarketResearch – Case Analysis
Blue Mountain Resorts Limited: The Night Skiing Decision
In mid-June 1979, Mr. Gordon Canning, president and chief executive officer of Blue Mountain Resorts, was facing a major decision. The officer has to determine whether or not facilities for night skiing in the upcoming season that it should be installed on the blue mountain slopes. And if he does so, then he has to specify the pricing strategy for tickets and passes. The decision had to be made by July 1st.
Blue Mountain is located in the north of Toronto near Georgian Bay, is Ontario’s most prosperous Ski Resort. During the 1978-1979 seasons, Blue Mountain had 250 acres of Ski trails in service. There were 27 different trails serviced by eight chair-lifts and 10 other tows. Three quarters of the trails were covered with snow.
Blue Mountain’s skier market is primarily from South and South-western Ontario, with a small proportion coming from U.S. Midwest. The largest group is the day skier who represents 38.4 % of skiers who visit Blue Mountain once or more during a year.
The Organization’s corporate strategy statement dictates that any proposed project must fit at least one of the following conditions before it can be undertaken:

13.1.1 Researcher-administered surveys
When conducting researcher-administered surveys researchers or their assistants ask the questions and complete the questionnaire forms. The primary methods of conducting researcher-administered surveys are personal face-to-face surveys and phone surveys.
There are three important advantages to conducting researcher-administered surveys. First, if a research participant does not understand the meaning of a question, the researcher can help to clarify the misunderstanding. This will ensure that the question is understood correctly and will, therefore, result in more accurate research data. For example, a college student taking a survey might wonder if a question on yearly income refers to their own or their family's income.
A second advantage of this surveying method is that a researcher can encourage a participant to answer all the questions and complete the questionnaire. Research participants may initially agree to take a survey because they do not want to seem rude when asked to participate. However, once they have the questionnaire they may remember that they are in a hurry to get...
