SANZAF has for the last 45 years operated to Give Hope to those less fortunate by ensuring the effective and efficient collection and distribution of Zakah. We have concluded a sale agreement to acquire the property at 3 Thornton Rd which is adjacent to our current office in Thornton Road. This is strategic for SANZAF as it allows SANZAF to easily extend its operations from its adjacent facility. Furthermore, it will allow SANZAF to consolidate its operations in the Western Cape from an iconic site that is well known, centrally located and accessible. The consolidation of its operations will save costs and could optimize SANZAF’s other property assets for future income-generation to sustain its operations and projects.

No other job on this Earth is more rewarding in the eyes of Allah than that of an Imam (leaders). He works 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at the behest of the community who comes knocking at his door during the early morning hours and late in the evenings. The Imam is the most underpaid profession in the Muslim Community, yet, like the rest of us, he must see to the household expenses whilst raising a family as well.
The South African National Zakah Fund (SANZAF) in partnership with The Muslim Judicial Council (MJC) is proud to announce the launch of the Ta’awun Imamat Programme (Imam Assistance Programme) that aims to ensure that imams earn a living wage aligned with their qualifications and experience whilst empowering the community.
Three Imams and their committees have been chosen to pilot this project and will be paid a salary from the Imam Assistance Fund account. This account is managed by SANZAF, who produce annual audited statements.
The Programme aims to:

SANZAF Trees Waqf
Climate change patterns and the global financial crisis of the last decade have negatively impacted global food security. The Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) contends that as many as 204 million people in sub-Saharan Africa, including South Africa are undernourished.
These adverse conditions leave many ordinary South Africans struggling to meet their basic needs. Inadequate food and poor nutrition in turn leads to stunted development, illness and the inability to work.
In keeping with its mission of changing lives through development and relief, SANZAF embarks on several projects to combat food insecurity. In the Gauteng region SANZAF currently supports two community-based farms. Smallholder farmers, we believe can play an important role in fighting hunger and creating opportunities for employment in South Africa.
Smallholder and subsistence farms can increase food supply in communities, and consequently improve food security and nutrition.
This year SANZAF embarked on a new project in partnership with the Paledi Drop-in centre in Polokwane. The centre runs a community food garden that serves to create opportunities for employment as well as provide high-quality fresh produce to children who attend the Drop-in centre.
Donations to the SANZAF Tree Waqf will be used to plant orange, naartjie, mango, litchie and peach trees at the Paledi Drop-in Centre in Polokwane. Apart from forming a sustainable resource-base for community development, donations are a means of sadaqah jaariyah (perpetual charity) for the donor.
The SANZAF Tree Waqf was established in year as a sustainable resource-base to support Agriculture projects in the Gauteng region. The waqf forms a perpetual endowment, whose earnings are designated for agriculture in South Africa. The waqf system is traced back to the Prophet Muhammad (saw) who advised Umar (may Allah be pleased with him) to pledge a portion of land that he had acquired as a waqf. The land would remain intact, and could not be sold, while its fruits would be given as sadaqah (voluntary charity).
With your support, our tree waqf has grown to support four communities.
