Ramadan Mubarak

Prophet Muhammad (SAW) is reported to have said: “The fast remains suspended between the heavens and the earth until the Fitrah is discharged”

(Targheeb)

As we usher in the holy month of Ramadan, the South African National Zakah Fund (SANZAF) would like to take the opportunity to wish you a month of blessings, clemency and enlightenment. Ameen

The holy month of Ramadan is not only a spiritual time of the year for all Muslims but an an extremely engaging and busy month for SANZAF as we commence with our largest distribution month of the year.

As the cost of living in South Africa continues rise and with the country’s unemployment rate at a staggering 26,7% in the fourth quarter of 2017, there is an increased need for social welfare organisations such as SANZAF to assist those in need with basic provisions and development opportunities.

With that being said, SANZAF offices countrywide have increased their operations and plans in the lead up to the holy month of Ramadan. The aim being to serve over 185 000 Iftar meals ensuring needy beneficiaries have a nutritious meal to break their fast with. Our Fitrah operation is one of the largest in the country and over 23 000 families will benefit from Fitrah Food Aid hampers. This is done through partnerships with over 100 Masajid throughout South Africa.

All this is only made possible through the contributions and generous donations from the public and we encourage you to contribute your Zakah, Fitrah and Lillah to our Ramadan programmes in cash or kind.

Ramadan, the time to give hope

A solid Islamic financial base is said to be the soundest way to harnessing Zakah, the compulsory cleansing and redistribution of wealth, deemed to be a pillar of the faith. In many parts of the globe, Zakah is said to be the forgotten pillar, either due to grinding poverty, famine and warfare in Islamic lands, or due to minorities with threatened civil liberties.

Nonetheless, Zakah as an institution in the 21st century has started to make great strides, especially since the dissolution of the Ottoman Caliphate in 1923 rocked the Muslim word, and set it back on all fronts – socially, economically, educationally and politically.

We are blessed to pay Zakah

MOST outsiders to Islam understand Zakah as an alms tax, a poor tax, of a Muslim’s wealth. Of course, superficially, it is – but in terms of its real definition, it is not. For Zakah, say Arabic lexicons, means “cleanliness, growth, blessing and praise”.

All these connotations of the word are understood in the context of Qur’an and Hadith, which extol time and time again how Zakah is an investment of the heart. Indeed, we all understand that Zakah is a pillar of faith – together with the profession of belief (the kalimah shahadah), Salah (prayer), Ramadan (the fast) and Hajj (the major pilgrimage.

The Cycles of Being, towards the Holy Months

WE always seem to recognise things around us in cycles. We have the cycles of life (the seven stages of man described by Shakespeare) and the cycles of the weather, today a big concern to us, due to global warming. Then we have the cycle of bear and bull markets, the ups and the downs, on the stock exchanges of the world.
