Welcoming the holy month of Ramadhan

In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the most Merciful.

"O you who believe! Fasting is prescribed to you as it was prescribed to those before you, that ye may learn piety and righteousness (attain taqwaa)" – (Qur'an, Surah Al Baqarah 2:183)

rm1"O People! The month of Allah (Ramadhan) has approached you with His mercy and blessings. This is the month that is the best of all months in the estimation of Allah. Its days are the best among the days; its nights are the best among the nights. Its hours are the best among the hours". – [Holy Prophet Mohammad (SAWW)]

Message from the Africa Federation Chairman, Alhaj Anwarali Dharamsi

rm2We are at the threshold of the holy month of Ramadhan, the glorious month of mercy and forgiveness. The month of Ramadhan is the most venerated, blessed and spiritually beneficial month of the Islamic year to bring us closer to Allah (SWT) and to earn  and seek His grace, mercy and blessings.

During this month, God-consciousness, self-control, devotion and reflection is paramount taking cognizance of the hardships of the poor, hungry, the sick and the oppressed; it is the responsibility of each and every Muslim in the world to help fellow human beings, the less fortunate and the poor through benevolence of charity and other means of assistance.

Fasting during the holy month of Ramadhan has a deep spiritual dimension of compassion, of self-sacrifice, consciousness and of introspection. Insha'allah you will be overwhelmed with Allah's mercy in this blessed month and stay alert to seize this great opportunity. May Allah (SWT) accept our supplications and forgive all our shortcomings and misdeeds.

Let us also reflect on the tragic plight of the sufferings of the Muslim Ummah in several parts of the world and particularly in Syria as the violent conflict continues to cause deaths, destruction and suffering of innocent civilians since March 2011, sadly this has resulted in displacement of about 2 million Syrians seeking refuge in the neighboring countries, living in harsh conditions.

Let us pray to Allah (SWT) to bestow peace, security and tranquility in all parts of the world and an end to the persecutions and sufferings of innocent people from the horrible atrocities.

In this Holy month of Ramadhan, may you be blessed with good health, prosperity and may Allah's Blessings always shine upon you all, Ameen.

The Africa Federation Secretariat is calling upon members of our community to contribute generously towards the Syrian Refugee Appeal 2013 launched by the World Federation.

Recent news from the UN state that over 1.2m people have been displaced from their homes in Syria. Many have fled to the neighboring countries of Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon and Turkey. As the crisis in Syria continues, the UN estimates that by the end of 2013, over 3.5m Syrians will have been displaced from their homes. These are shocking statistics and we must try to do everything that we can to help those affected.

The World Federation is already supporting a number of families currently in Lebanon who have been displaced as a result of the current situation in Syria.

A number of micro-financing projects are also being supported to allow individuals to re-start their own businesses that had been lost when they left Syria and to begin earning independently again.

The World Federation will also be sending Ramadhan Relief Funds to Syria we request all our Jamaats and members of the community in Africa to support the World Federation initiatives and raise funds for this cause.

The Funds collected by the Jamaats should be remitted to the AFED Secretariat Office in Dar-es-Salaam which shall be then be sent to the World Federation.

Let us all together raise our hands in prayers and supplications to Allah (swt) in this blessed month with the Wasilah of our Aeema-e-Tahireen (as) that peace and harmony prevails in Syria and all parts of the World.
