Literature Collection Unit Project

The LCU is a dedicated activity of the Darul Ihsan Centre. Alhamdulillah, since its inception in 2009, the LCU has earned and made great strides in this field. The general Muslim community has shown much appreciation and has acknowledged the work undertaken to remove and collect Islamic literature from the units provided at Masjids and Musallahs.


Islamic literature or any other medium containing Islamic content should be highly revered. When the use of such writings no longer remains, it should be stored or alternatively disposed-off in a respectable manner.

The process begins when unwanted or used Islamic Literature is placed in a Darul Ihsan Collection Unit which is available in various Masajid and Islamic Centres throughout the Country, mainly in KZN and Gauteng. After collection, it is sorted out into re-usable and un-usable literature and thereafter is either distributed to worthy recipients or Islamically disposed-off.

The basic standard unit compromises of three levels: the top level is for Qurans, the middle is for Kitabs (books) and the bottom level for pamphlets. A dedicated team and vehicle move around to the different Masjids/Musallahs of Durban and Gauteng areas respectively to remove and collect the Islamic literature. The Darul Ihsan personnel carefully sorts out the unwanted literature at a central venue. Qurans and Kitabs (books) are then distributed to outlying areas and neighbouring countries. Recipients include Islamic libraries, Islamic Dawah Centres, Makatib (Madrasahs) and Masajid, etc.

Some distant towns and areas – where our vehicle and team cannot collect the literature – a local responsible person is appointed to co-ordinate the work from the respective area. It is our wish in the near future, Insha Allah, to facilitate this work in as many places as possible.

Alhamdulillah, this project has received tremendous public support and from humble beginnings, the units are now found in over 75 Masajid and Islamic Centres around KZN and over 65 in Gauteng.
