History of the organization

In 2004, a team of dedicated Ulama and educators from Newcastle headed by Mufti Faiyaz ur Rahim Rahimahullah put together a conserted effort in opening a Madrasah or young women. The Madrasah began in the home of Moulana Nazir Paruk, having 8 students and 2 teachers. The following year the demand for a class for students who did not know arabic at all, as well as hifz class promted the committee to shift thee Madrasa to 12 St Thomas street, where it continues to this day.

Although the Madrasah continued to function over the years, the onerous task required further dedication and in the year 2018, the institute was officially registered as a non-profit company and later issued the status of a Public Benefit Organization by SARS. This enabled the Madrasah to collect funds and pursue the vision of having an institute that provided multiple sources of education for women.

Since 2004, with the help of generous donors, the Madrasah has contributed over R6 million towards providing education to women.

Today, the Madrasah has a 3 year Basic Aalimah course, an Idaadiya course, a Quran and Tajweed course, an optional 4th year class, and aims to establish the first ever south African based females only online academy providing self-paced Islamic studies and skills training. The Madrasah also provides an opportunity for females wanting to pursue Hifzul Quran.
