The South African National Zakah Fund (SANZAF) in its endeavours to provide relief and assistance to the poor and needy, appreciates the importance of social stability in order to effect positive change.
In offering its support to the Cape Accord, SANZAF sought to uphold the dignity of human beings, fostering understanding and projecting a positive image of Islam. Whilst these factors are instrumental to social cohesion and are aligned to the organisation's values, the Cape Accord in itself, was met with dissenting views from various communities and Ulama fraternities.
Shauket Fakie, SANZAF National Chairperson commented: "After wider consultation and due consideration, we are withdrawing our support of the Cape Accord. We are doing so for the very principles that we supported the document initially - to promote peace, harmony, tolerance, mutual respect and compassion".
With Eid-ul-Fitr a few days away, all efforts at SANZAF continue to be focussed on the distribution of over 23 000 fitrah hampers throughout the country to ensure that no Muslim goes wanting on the joyous day of Eid-ul-Fitr.

Prophet Muhammad (SAW) is reported to have said: “The fast remains suspended between the heavens and the earth until the Fitrah is discharged”
As we usher in the holy month of Ramadan, the South African National Zakah Fund (SANZAF) would like to take the opportunity to wish you a month of blessings, clemency and enlightenment. Ameen
The holy month of Ramadan is not only a spiritual time of the year for all Muslims but an an extremely engaging and busy month for SANZAF as we commence with our largest distribution month of the year.
As the cost of living in South Africa continues rise and with the country’s unemployment rate at a staggering 26,7% in the fourth quarter of 2017, there is an increased need for social welfare organisations such as SANZAF to assist those in need with basic provisions and development opportunities.
With that being said, SANZAF offices countrywide have increased their operations and plans in the lead up to the holy month of Ramadan. The aim being to serve over 185 000 Iftar meals ensuring needy beneficiaries have a nutritious meal to break their fast with. Our Fitrah operation is one of the largest in the country and over 23 000 families will benefit from Fitrah Food Aid hampers. This is done through partnerships with over 100 Masajid throughout South Africa.
All this is only made possible through the contributions and generous donations from the public and we encourage you to contribute your Zakah, Fitrah and Lillah to our Ramadan programmes in cash or kind.
