The Darul Uloom Pretoria Islamic Dawah Centre is an Oasis of Hope in a desert of hopelessness that was opened in 2009. The centre is located in a house on Bengal Street but doing the work of which big Centres are not capable of.
Hazrat Allama Peer Sayed Imtiaz Shah Kazmi mentions in his Keynote speech that “Hazrat Mufti Akbar Hazarvi is the living miracle of Hazrat Peer Sayed Haseen ud Deen Shah Saheb”.
Some of the guests included Dr Suhail Khan (Ambassador of Pakistan), Mr Adenaan Javed (Deputy High commissioner), Hazrat Mufti Akbar Hazarvi,Allama Peer Sayed Imtiaz Shah Kazmi, Allama Mufti Misbahul Malick Luqmanvi, Allama Anwar ul Madina Luqmanvi, Allama Moulana Abdul Wahab, Allama Moulana Sayed Imraan Shah Ziyaee, Moulana Habeeb Milanzi, Moulana Usman Solehri and a panel of local and International Ulama.
The Dawah Centre operates Under the sincere and humble leadership of Hazrat Allama Mufti Mohamed Akbar Hazarvi, Moulana Hafiz Ismail Hazarvi. It’s operation, however, is managed through the dedication and hard work of Moulana Usman Sulehri and his team of students and graduates. The community seeks to restore its dignity and to take ownership of Islam and its propagation to the general populace of Iterileng Informal settlements.
The centre endeavours to teach Islam to non-Muslims. They are given education regarding basic beliefs, Islamic ethics, morals, laws as well as Quranic recital lessons. They are also taught about the history of the Prophets. Together with education, there is a system in place to feed the students. The students that complete their basic Islamic education are then sent to Islamic institutes for higher Islamic education.
