In the spirit of ‘Ubuntu’ and the empowerment, Darul Ihsan activities are driven by the spirit of the Quran and Sunnah.
In one hadith our Nabi Muhammad (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) has said, "Whosoever fulfils a need (religious or worldly) of anyone in my Ummah that brings joy and happiness to him that person has brought joy to me. And whoever brought joy to me then surely he has brought joy to Allah. And whoever has brought joy to Allah, then, most certainly Allah will enter him into Jannah.” (Bayhaqi)
The hadith motivates us to help the person in difficulty for the pleasure of Allah Ta’ala. Indeed, Allah Ta’ala loves those who help His creation.
The Darul Ihsan Welfare Department attends to hundreds of needy cases through its offices at Sea Cow Lake, Overport, Phoenix, Howick and Johannesburg.
While Zakat funds form the bulk of the resources a substantial amount is reserved from other funds in order to fulfil our vision in the spirit of Ubuntu and the empowerment of people of other faiths.
Such ventures, then feeds into our broader mission of providing a humanitarian service.
