Ramadaan Appeal 2018

read time: 2 min



Sayyiduna Anas Radhiyallahu Anhu narrates that Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam was asked: “Which fast was most virtuous after Ramadan?” He said: “Sha’ban in honour of Ramadan.” It was asked, “Which charity is best?” He said: “Charity in Ramadan.” (Tirmidhi)


All Praise be to Almighty Allah and the Choicest Salawaat and Salaam on our beloved Nabi, Muhammad Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam. We are fortunate indeed to once again witness the beautiful month of Ramadaan, the month of mercy, forgiveness, generosity, Barakah, Dua, Ibaadat, obedience, Taraweeh, Sehri and Iftaar. This is a month when the Divine Mercy is not raining, but pouring on the Ummah! We take this opportunity to apprise the Muslim community of some of the work the Jamiatul Ulama KZN is undertaking.


COMMUNITY WELFARE: The Jamiat KZN goes to great lengths to ensure that our donors’ Zakaat funds are discharged correctly.  For this reason, the Jamiat’s Welfare Department has its own office, which is centrally located in the Durban CBD area. This location ensures ease of access for various recipients travelling from throughout the greater Durban area.


The advantages of donating your Zakaat to the Jamiat KZN:


  •  Zakaat funds are disbursed under the strict supervision of the Ulama.
  •   No Zakaat funds are used for administrative costs.
  • Every endeavour is made to ensure that all recipients are Zakaat eligible.


PROJECT H.E.L.P.: (Helping Empower Local People) was established in 2014 to accomplish greater relief efforts among South Africa’s indigenous communities. Alhamdulillah, the project has performed sterling work and has thus far successfully completed over 50 outreach projects across KZN at various schools, old-age homes, orphanages, shelters and informal settlements.


N.B. Only Lillah funds are utilised to fund our local projects.


SKILLS DEVELOPMENT CENTRE: Alhamdulillah, the Jamiat KZN Skills Development Centre, which has been operating for the past three years, offers an empowerment program that strives to provide holistic development to underprivileged women within disadvantaged communities.


INTERNATIONAL RELIEF: Alhamdullilah, the Jamiatul Ulama KZN has undertaken relief work in many parts of the globe in its efforts to alleviate the plight of the Ummah & to continue our global support, the Jamiatul Ulama KZN currently provides ongoing aid relief in Bangladesh and in Turkey for the Syrian refugees.


Your support enables the Jamiat to continue assisting the Ummah.


May Allah Ta’ala alleviate the Ummah’s suffering and may you and your family have a most spiritually enriching Ramadaan, Aameen.
