The annual Africa Federation Solidarity Day will Insha’allah take place on 15th Sha’ban 1436 AH which will insha’Allah fall on Wednesday, 3rd June 2015.
 
The Solidarity Day activities within our constituent Jamaats are earmarked to start from 1st to 25th Sha’ban 1436 (20th May to 13th June 2015).
 
This year, we would request all our Jamaats in Africa to organize a special event of Charity Walk preferably on Sunday, 12th Sha’ban 1436 (31st May 2015), the aim of this event is in two folds, firstly to bring the community members of all age groups together on a common platform under one banner of Solidarity to celebrate the auspicious occasion of the birth anniversary of our 12th Imam, Al Hujjah Al Mahdi (ATFS), secondly to raise funds for a noble cause. Funds raised for this occasion are utilized throughout the year for the needy and deserving members of our community in areas such as education, medical, and other emergency relief requirements.
 
We are pleased to appoint the Solidarity Day Ad-Hoc Committee to spearhead the AFED Solidarity Day - 2015 and to coordinate closely with the Jamaats in organizing various activities and fund raising events. We request the Jamaats to appoint two youth members from each Jamaat to work in collaboration with the following Ad-Hoc Committee:    

  1. Farhan Yusuf (Head)                               8.   Mazahir Fidahussein 
  2. Imran Sherali (Asst. Head)                      9.   Alihassan Kassam

INNA LILLAHI WA INNA ILAYHI RAJEEUN

It is with deep sorrow and grief that the Africa Federation received the sad news of the passing away of Alhaj Hussein Rashid in Nairobi on Wednesday 14th January 2015.
 
Marhum Hussein Bhai served as the Hon. Secretary of the Africa Federation for one year (2001-2002) under the Chairmanship of Marhum Zulfikar Khimji, he also served as the Chairman of the Education Board from 1995 to 1998 and was a nominated Councilor of the Africa Federation for the term 2010 – 2013.
 
Marhum was a passionate and keen social worker with great interest in Education; he contributed immensely towards the development of the education field within the Community.  He was the Vice Chairman of Nairobi Jamaat Jaffery Academy until the time of his death.
 
Marhum is survived by his wife and three sons.
 
Alhaj Anwarali Dharamsi, Chairman of the Africa Federation in his message of condolence to the family wrote: –
 
“Hussein bhai was a dedicated and kind hearted social worker who always had the Community’s welfare at heart.  He served in the various positions in the Community with zeal and devotion and his death has left a big vacuum which will be difficult to fill.
 
On behalf of my colleagues and myself, I am writing this letter to express our deep sympathies to you, and all the members of the family on this bereavement, which has fallen upon you”. 
 
We pray to Allah (SWT) to grant Marhum maghferat and rest his soul amongst the infallibles - Charharda Masumeen (A.S.) and grant his family solace to bear this great loss.
 
Please let us remember Marhum in our prayers and let us recite Sura-e-Fateha to bless his soul.
