Sanzaf educates the masses during Ramadaan SANZAF COMMUNICATIONS

THE South African National Zakah Fund (Sanzaf) stepped up its zakaah advocacy initiatives during the month of Ramadaan through a series of seminars, radio and television discussions as well as publications. The initiatives were aimed at educating the public about the virtues of zakaah, and providing a holistic understanding of the third pillar of Islam. Sanzaf also invested in its ongoing specialised zakaah consultancy service, where our established team of learned scholars and advisors provide the community with the most effective and confidential one-on-one zakaah consultation service, at no charge.

The new vehicle, which is sponsored by SARF, will assist Masjid ur Rahmah in providing much-needed burial services to the community of George and nearby Garden Route areas.

The fund provided nutritious meals at iftaar to over 137 000 people through local partnerships

in under-resourced areas throughout South Africa. On the eve of Eid-ul-Fitr, San-

zaf encourages the community to pay their fitrah and fidyah timeously. We are reminded of the hadith narrated by Targeeb, in which Rasulullah (SAW) is reported to have said: ‘The fast remains suspended between the heavens and the earth until the fitrah is discharged.’ Help Sanzaf bring joy to over 23 600 families this Eid by making your contributions at any of our offices or via our website. This year’s minimum amounts are R40 for fitrah and R10 per day for fidyah. For more information on Sanzaf projects and programmes, call 0861 726 923, follow us on Twit-
