Jamiatul Ulama KZN Skills Development Centre

A most important aspect of community building and poverty alleviation is empowerment.. Jamiatul Ulama KZN has taken up this challenge of empowering Muslim woman giving them a new lease of life and hope.. Moulana Ahmed Mahomedy, President of Jamiatul Ulama KZN gave Salaamedia an overview of this excellent programme Jamiatul Ulama KZN Skills Development Programme




All praise to Allah Ta’ala, the Jamiatul Ulama KZN Skills Development Centre (SDC) was officially opened on Wednesday, 08 November 2017 by Hazrat Moulana Haroon Abasoomar, a Senior Aalim of South Africa and an Executive member of the Jamiatul Ulama KZN.


This initiative started off on a small scale three years ago at our Welfare Department, which is located in the Durban CBD.


Alhamdulillah, it has now evolved to a fully-fledged centre in the hub of Overport, which is centrally located and is easily accessible by public transport.


The new modern premises features a more aesthetically pleasing and conducive environment for learning with excellent equipment and facilities.
