Rokeiya LetalaRokeiya Letala is a student majoring in Taxation at the University of Pretoria. Growing up without a father in Witsrandjies, a village in the North West, with 4 siblings can be fairly daunting for many.

“I needed to be sure that the organization sponsoring my studies is not Riba based. My brother then informed me about SANZAF who supports those in need as well as academically deserving students. Through the will and grace of the almighty, SANZAF gave me the opportunity to complete my degree in an honest manner within the folds of Islam.”

She added that her reason to study Bcom Honors in Taxation stems from her eagerness to benefit and educate her community about tax.

“Taxation is a very exciting field of study- in particular; it is something high in demand in our country and is also one of the biggest source of income. It is fairly fascinating and interesting to know just how, why and where the government makes money through the laws of tax.

“Success isn’t only at a certain point in life- it is a continuous journey. Let the principles of Islam guide you in your decisions- don’t ever lose yourself, stay true to yourself, stick to your values and you will come out tops!”

Talha BakhariaSuccessful Forensic Accounting major Talha Bakharia graduated from North-West University (NWU) in Potchefstroom- He describes the trials and tribulations of life as a student and elaborates the importance of having a vision.

“It took me 5 years to obtain my Honours Degree and I’ll never forget that moment when I failed my major- the pass rate was 50% and I needed 3%. My lecturer advised that I repeat the year,”

explains Bakharia who eventually graduated with an Honours Degree from North-West University (NWU) in Potchefstroom.

He adds that he appreciates his accomplishment more because, according to him, there was no “easy way out”.

Furthermore Bakharia first came to hear of SANZAF’s Education Empowerment Development (SEED) bursary programme by a family member who recommended him to apply for a SANZAF bursary.

“I know SANZAF aims to uplift and empower the Muslim youth so I applied for a bursary,”

says Bakharia, who believes that financial difficulty should never be an issue for students who are eager and willing to learn.

“People and organizations will assist you if you are determined to learn- so show it!”

Bcom Accounting graduate Ishrath Kalib is now doing her practical training as well as her Honours degree part time at the University of South Africa (UNISA).

“I would like to thank the South African National Zakah Fund (SANZAF) for the endless support towards my studies, both financially and morally. Without the help of SANZAF and their tireless effort, I would not have been able to obtain my degree. I believe in giving back in many ways and Inshallah, help students like myself in the future.”

Sameera Sayed has completed her Bachelor of Social Science (B.Soc.Sc. or B.Soc.Sci.) degree and intends to do her Honours full time.

“I always intended to study further and do my best so I stand a better chance of employment. SANZAF has made that possible for me and I am truly grateful to SANZAF for the financial help and guidance.”
