Drug Awareness Drive programs held in Port Elizabeth

The ‘Drug Awareness Drive’ - ‘DAD’, an initiative of Darul Ihsan Humanitarian Centre presented a series of educational programmes on drug and substance abuse in Port Elizabeth on 16 & 17 September 2018. The Ulama of Darul Ihsan were warmly received by the PE community on a coldish weekend with plummeting temperatures.

Progammes were held at several schools, Madrasas and a special presentation for mothers and sisters was followed by the main evening programme on Saturday, 15 September 2018. Jumuah programmes were conducted in PE and Uitenhague by the visiting Ulama.

In his special address in the main programme, Mufti Zubair Bayat, the Ameer of Darul Ihsan Centre highlighted the need for every Alim, educator and parent to become actively involved in the eradication of the drug scourge as this was a challenge that affected all members of the community. Mufti Saheb emphasised that there was no longer any room for apathy towards this global danger if we wish to save the future. He also asserted that we need a collective and proactive effort to the problem.

In his power point presentation Maulana Zakaria Murchie discussed new research that revealed the explosive dangers of newer substances being processed in laboratories that were compounding the lethal effect that these substances have on the human body and mind.

The well researched presentations have ignited the concern of communities wherever these programmes are held and participants are appreciative to 'DAD' for the initiative.

The ‘DAD' team thanks the community of Port Elizabeth for their hospitality and co-ordination of an initiative which is at the heart of the Ulama and community.

May Allah Ta’ala accept this humble effort, make it easy for those whose lives are affected by the incidence of drug and substance abuse and protect our families and the Ummah.
