Our Blog

Zakat in action - SANZAF enters the blogosphere

ZAKAT is said to be the most neglected of Islam’s five pillars. Described as a purification of wealth, it is essential to the welfare and heartbeat of the community. With this in mind, SANZAF now introduces its dedicated blog at www.sanzaf.co.za.

Editing and driving the new SANZAF blog platform will be award-winning journalist, photographer, radio and TV presenter and author, Shafiq Morton, who writes for publications such as Muslim Views, Al-Qalam and the Independent Group. He also runs his own blog and edits his own news website.

Via the new blog, SANZAF will be exposing you to events, issues and pertinent platforms surrounding the world of Zakah. We look forward to seeing you there as you witness Zakat in action.

National Ramadan Fact Sheet 2015

The holy month of Ramadan is not only a spiritual time of the year for Muslims, but is also the largest distribution month for the South African National Zakah Fund (SANZAF).

As the cost of living in South Africa continues to rise and with the country’s unemployment rate at a staggering 26.40% for the first quarter of 2015, there is an increased need for social welfare organisations such as SANZAF to assist those in need with basic provisions.

This Ramadan, SANZAF aims to serve Iftar to over 9 000 people daily and an additional 60 000 persons in need over weekends to ensure that they have a nutritious meal to break their fast with.

Early Childhood Education core to SANZAF

The South African National Zakah Fund (SANZAF) in the Western Cape conducted a special project to provide educational equipment and playschool facilities at Siddique Junior Madressa, housed at Siddique Masjid in Elsies River.
This handover makes provision for 120 Learners, between the ages of 1 to 5 at the education centre. The junior school provides employment for nine teachers and provides education to four classes.

SANZAF Education Empowerment and Development (SEED) Coordinator Faeza Govind explained that the Fund will continue providing general assistance to the crèche moving forward. "Our next project of this nature will be undertaken in the Bridgetown area."
