The Southern Africa Dawah Network (SADN) says it plans to roll out an educational programme for Muslim sisters’ across Kwa-Zulu-Natal that will help them tackle challengers with a united front.
SADN recently hosted a sisters’ weekend program at the MA Motala Islamic Centre in Wyebank on March 16-18 to coincide with International Women’s day.
The Women Development Program was coordinated by Sister Fathima Mnxulwa, the head of department.
It was attended by both young and older Muslim sisters from different areas in KZN, namely; Amouti; Umthwalume; Wyebank and Durban Central. A total of 15 sisters attended the Programme.
The weekend programme was full of beneficial sessions that focused on the following subject areas: Embracing Islamic life-style in townships; Islamic identity in non-Islamic environments; Development of Muslim social groups in townships; and Social cohesion with communities.
“We humbly request SADN to plan monthly weekend programs of this nature, to nurture our Islamic growth, spiritually and otherwise,” remarked Mama Zahira, a Wyebank resident who expressed importance for such programmes to be conducted for women in townships who seem to have been forgotten or neglected.
The SADN has plans to develop the programme to reach other sisters in different areas across KZN. “This will unite and create a strong community base for Muslim sisters to tackle challenges of all kinds with a united front,” said a spokesperson.
The next program is planned to take place later in April 2018.
