The AFED Building named after our 12th Imam Al Hujjah (ATFS) - "AL QA'EEM" is located on Plot 9 Jacaranda Road, Arusha - Tanzania. The eight storey building consists of 24 flats (each floor will have - two flats of 2 bedrooms and one flat of 3 bedrooms).

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.
