Gift A Quran Gift A Musalla Project [REPORT]

Date / Duration : 24 May to 22 June 2017

Many of us have to be told to respect our Qurans, or take them out to be read. This is a privilege many of us take lightly. In 2013, prior to the formation of Colours of Hope, a letter came through to Madrasah Ummul Hasanaat. The letter was from the Sakafia Students Association desperate for Qurans. Madrasah Ummul Hasanaat, (then) soon to be Colours of Hope, responded and delivered Qurans to Kumasi, Ghana in 2013.

Due to the great response we received in in June last year, Qurans were locally distributed as well as in Ghana.
This year during Ramadan of 2017 coinciding with the Islamic lunar year 1438, Colours of Hope concentrated on local distributions. There has been several requests for prayer mats (Musalla) hence the #GiftAQuran #GiftAMusalla project.

Quran Donation to Qira’ah Jalsa 2017 [REPORT]

Date / Duration : 07 May 2017
TOTAL QURANS: 90 copies

The 6th Annual Qira’ah Jalsa held on 07 May 2017, in Lenasia, was organized by the SANMWF and Al Tawhid Islamic Centre.
The objective of the annual gathering is to perfect the recital of Quran with proper tajweed (rules of recitation) and makhaarij (pronunciation). The Quran is not just the holy book of the Muslims, rather a code for the Muslims to live a good, chaste, peaceful and rewarding life in obedience to the commandments of Allah, in this life and to gain salvation in the next.

The annual Jalsa also aims to encourage the implementation, understanding and memorisation of the Quran in the daily lives of all. Guest speaker sister Nahid Farooqui stressed on the importance of understanding the Quran and not merely reading it.
Females participants were grouped into different age categories and rendered beautiful recitals.
Colours of Hope organization gifted all 90 participants with new Qurans.

Gift a Quraan-Darul Aytaam

Colours of Hope Quraan had the privilege of meeting these wonderful kids at Darul Aytaam this morning.

May Allah reward Mu’allimah Layla and her husband (the directors of Darul Aytaam) for their superb efforts in raising these special children

Ihya Women’s Forum Pamper Day

The Ihya Women’s Forum Pamper Day was a huge success in Ennerdale at the Baitul Quran Centre. The Ihya Women’s Forum catered for over 200 senior citizens, lots of activities for the elderly. The elderly were treated with head and shoulder massages as well as facials. They were also given manicures and pedicures.
The pampering was most appreciated by the special grannies.
Thereafter screening for diabetes and blood pressure was done by the Islamic Medical Association.
Breakfast was served and later scrumptuous lunch.
Each senior citizen received a gift, while senior citizens who learned to read the Qur’aan at Ihya il Uloom, were gifted with a Quraan and abaya.
Masha Allah !
A great achievement indeed.

Ihya women’s forum , Ennerdale would like to thank Colours of Hope, Helping Hands, Vaal women’s forum and everyone who contributed towards the Pamper day of our senior citizens.
May Allah reward you …
We couldn’t have done it without you!

400 Quraans to Madressah Ihya Uloomudeen in Ennerdale

Alhamdulillah , by the mercy of Allah, Colours of Hope has donated approximately 400 Quraans to Madressah Ihya Uloomudeen in Ennerdale. This (females only) Madressa is unique in the sense that it is also an Islamic college. It houses students from previously disadvantaged communities namely; Poortjie, Ennerdale, Soweto, Mamelodi, etc.

Students from other countries (Malawi, Angola, Comorros Islands, Mozambique) reside and learn here as well.

The aim of the Girls College is to focus on the moral, social and spiritual upliftment of revert Muslims, the disadvantaged and needy. May Allah accept their efforts and concern for the Ummah.

We would like to say Jazaakallahu ahsanaljazaa to all the donors.
Your everlasting reward is with Allah!
