Darul Ihsan Centre Hajj & Qurbani Programme at Masjid Bilal

After a successful Pre-Ramadan programme held earlier in the year, another programme was held over the weekend, this time to highlight the seasonal topics of Hajj and Qurbani. Over 400 people converged at Masjid Bilal in Castlehill, Newlands West for the “Hajj & Qurbani Programme” on Sunday, 27 August 2017.

 

The programme - an educational initiative of Darul Ihsan Centre on the significance and laws pertaining to Hajj and Qurbani (Udhiya) - was presented in Zulu and English to many indigenous African Muslims coming from the vast surrounding areas of Lindelani, Siyanda, KwaDabeka, KwaMashu, Ntuzuma, Richmond Farm, Newlands East and Newlands West.

The resident Imam at Masjid Bilal, Sheikh Abdullah Zwane - and director of the programme - introduced two guest speakers, Maulana Saeed Ncane and Maulana Bilal Islam, who delivered inspirational discourses on the essentials of Hajj and the significance of Qurbani. A young Imam from KwaDabeka, Sheikh Ismail Dlamini, gave a vibrant talk on having good friends which captivated the attention of all at the gathering.

The programme was interspaced with a Qur’anic recitation, Zikr and Nasheed. An opportunity was given to participants to field questions on the topics discussed. Numerous questions were received and responded to by Maulana Yusuf Jazbhay of the Darul Ihsan Fatwa Department. This segment proved to be lively and beneficial.

Attendees said they appreciated and enjoyed the ‘spiritual atmosphere’ of the programme. Some expressed that they felt a deep sense of ‘unity’ with all present. The programme closed with Zuhr and lunch for all who attended.

The “Hajj & Qurbani” programme is one of several initiatives taking place at Masjid Bilal and it is hoped that many more will be presented in the future, Insha Allah.

All programmes presented at Masjid Bilal are aimed at uplifting our communities through education, social cohesion and Dawah.

Darul Ihsan Centre thanks all who volunteered, contributed and assisted in the success of this programme.
