Indeed, those who believe and do righteous deeds and establish prayer and give charity will have their reward with their Lord, and there will be no fear concerning them, nor will they grieve. (Holy Qur’an, Al Baqarah 2:277)

Our deepest appreciation to the Community members for their support and generous contributions towards the Africa Federation Solidarity Day Fund Project marking the auspicious occasion of the birthday of Imam of our time, Muhammad ibn Hassan al-Mahdi al-Hujjah (a.t.f.s.) on 15th of Shab’an.
 
We also commend the wonderful efforts made by the youth of our community in our Jamaats in organizing special events for fund raising.

Alhamdulillah, this year we have collected sum of US$ 176,038.19. Following are details of the collections:

Eid Card

Like in the previous years, the Africa Federation Secretariat once again invited children between the ages of 6 and 12 years from our Jamaats in Africa to design Eid Cards for the Africa Federation.

We are pleased to inform that one hundred and eighty six (186) entries were received; they are from Arusha, Bukoba, Dar-es-Salaam, Lubumbashi, Madagascar, Mombasa, Moshi, Mwanza, Nairobi and Re-Union Jamaats.

The efforts and enthusiasm shown by these children are indeed overwhelming, choosing the top three entries was not an easy task.

We are pleased to see the creativeness and the artistic talents of these young children of our community.

Following are the designers of the selected Eid Cards:

  • Aleesha (Aaliya) Shahina Merali (8 years) of Nairobi - The card designed by her was selected for the Africa Federation for Eid-ul Fitr 1435 for postal Eid Card.
  • Rehmat Z. Rashid (12 years) of Dar-es-Salaam - The card designed by her was selected for display on the Africa Federation Website for Eid-ul Fitr 1435.

Eid ul-Fitr marks the end of the holy month of Ramadhan. We say farewell to the blessed month, its beautiful days and its fragrant nights. It is an occasion to offer our thanks to our Creator, Allah (SWT) for His grace and mercy, and it is when Allah (SWT) is awarding us for our achievements.
 
Eid ul-Fitr is a time to celebrate with family and friends the completion of a blessed month whilst making it equally blessed festive and joyful occasion for all - A day of forgiveness, fellowship and unity, a time of giving and sharing with others.

Pinning the Federation Flag on this day signifies Unity, Fellowship and Commitment to our common goals for the betterment of our Community.

Message from the Chairman of the Africa Federation, Alhaj Anwarali R. Dharamsi - Welcoming the Holy Month of Ramadhan


In the Name of Allah; the Most Compassionate, the Most Merciful

“The month of Ramadhan is that in which the Qur’an was revealed, a guidance for mankind and clear proofs of the guidance and the distinction; therefore whoever of you is present in the month, he shall fast therein, and whoever is sick or upon a journey, then (he shall fast) a (like) number of other days; Allah desires ease for you, and He does not desire for you difficulty, and (He desires) that you should complete the number and that you should exalt the greatness of Allah for His having guided you and that you may give thanks.” (Surah al Baqarah-2:185)

My dear community members,
 
Salaamun Alaikum,
 
The holy month of Ramadhan – the most desired guest for the believers is just round the corner. Let us therefore welcome this special guest with glorification, praise and thanks of Allah (swt) and once again in this year too we should seek purification of our souls by fulfilling the obligations due in this month. In the sight of Allah (swt), this month is the best month, its days are the best days, its nights are the best nights and its hours are the best hours.
