Guest Impressions

Overwhelming turnout for pre-Ramadan programme at Masjid Bilal in Castlehill

Darul Ihsan Centre hosted a pre-Ramadan programme for Muslims from localities and townships of the greater Durban area. On Sunday, 21 May 2017 some eight hundred women, children, youth and men converged at Masjid Bilal in Castlehill, Newlands West.

People from areas such as Mount Moriah, Lindelani, Malagazi, Claremont, Inanda, Kwa Mashu and many surrounding localities came in droves to listen to inspiring and motivational talks on the coming of Ramadan.
The programme commenced at 10:15am with Qira’at and Nasheeds recited by local youth. In particular, Hafez Mohammed Ndlovu delivered a beautiful Qira’at rendition. This was followed by a presentation on the laws and rules of fasting and Taraweeh by Shaykh Adil Ghazi - a local scholar serving in Harding, KZN.

The main guest speaker was Maulana Saeed Ncane - also from Harding. Maulana Ncane delivered a lively and motivational Zulu discourse on various aspects of Islam and Ramadan. The congregation greatly appreciated his lively talk and responded positively to his interactive method.

One of the highlights of the day was the introduction of the ‘Basic Islam Course’ by the Imam of Masjid Bilal, Shaykh Abdur Rahim Milanze. Alhamdulillah, ten revert Muslims completed the first ‘Basic Islam Course’ held at the Masjid Bilal Centre. 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 relevant 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. 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.
