Guest Impressions

Massive turnout for Pre-Ramadan Programme

Darul Ihsan Humanitarian Centre hosted its annual Pre-Ramadan programme for Muslims mainly from localities and townships of the greater Durban area on Sunday, 13 May 2018. Some one thousand two hundred women, children, youth and men converged at Masjid Bilal in Castlehill, Newlands West for this annual event.

People from Mount Moriah, Lindelani, Malagazi, Claremont, Inanda, Kwa Mashu, Newcastle and many surrounding localities came in droves to listen to the inspiring and motivational talks on the coming of Ramadan.

The programme commenced at 10:15am with a Qira’at and Nasheeds recited by local youth. In particular, Sheikh Faizal Malinga delivered a beautiful Qira’at rendition. This was followed by a presentation on the laws and rules of fasting and Taraweeh by Shaykh Muhammad Ngcobo.

The guest speaker, Maulana Muhammad Hlope delivered a lively and motivational Zulu discourse on various aspects of Islam and Ramadan particularly pertaining to the virtues of fasting, I'tikaaf and Laylatul Qadr. The congregation greatly appreciated his liveliness and responded positively to his interactive method.

A highlight of the day was the introduction of the ‘Basic Islam Course’ by the Imam of Masjid Bilal, Shaykh Ismail Dlamini. The Basic Islam Course is a free 10 day programme that focuses on the basics of Islam for new Muslims. The programme is ongoing and caters for the boarding and lodging of the participants. Also, all study material is provided.

The programme concluded with a fervent dua. All present were then treated to sumptuous lunch and each family received a pack of dates (kajoor), a blanket and educational literature.

Darul Ihsan Centre thanks all those who assisted towards the success of the programme through their volunteer effort, contributions and duas. The atmosphere reflected the true brotherhood of Islam and the potential for Dawah and development in our community. These and other progammes are ongoing and with your duas and support Darul Ihsan hopes to convene more programmes of this nature for our local community and invite your and family to join us in these initiatives for the greater good of the Ummah.
