And give food - despite their own desire for it, to the poor, the orphan and the captive saying to themselves, “We feed you only for the sake of Allah (SWT), seeking neither reward, nor thanks from you (Qur'an, Surah 76, Verse 8-9)
Alhumdulillah, SANZAF’s feeding scheme caters for both Muslims and Non-Muslims, from amongst the impoverished and needy communities. For the success of this Feeding Scheme, Non-Zakah funds are required on an ongoing basis. A variety of fresh meals are prepared at the SANZAF Durban office and served on a daily basis. SANZAF feeds approximately 3 600 people on a monthly basis at various venues such as Albert Park, Milner Street, Lacey Road, Alpine Road, Old Fort Road and Williams Road.
SANZAF has consistently implemented the traditions of the Beloved Prophet Muhammed (SAW) in preserving and perpetuating the esteem of our senior citizens by retaining and reviving their rightful place in society. The utmost respect and care must be accorded to the elderly in health care, social welfare, psychological treatment, education and other aspects pertaining to their well-being.
SANZAF Durban assists the elderly on our caseload with medication, special dietary food and rentals. SANZAF encourages the Ummah to participate in assisting to improve the health and well-bring of our senior citizens by supporting Project Rahma. Assist SANZAF in bringing joy to the elderly by contributing towards Project Rahma.

Water Well Project
Hadrat Uthman (R.A) came to the Prophet (SAW) and said “O Prophet of Allah (SAW), my mother passed away. What can I do in memory of her?” The Prophet (SAW) replied “Maoon” Hadrat Uthman (R.A) then built a water well in memory of his mother so that people would drink water and his mother would receive Swaab-e-Jaariyah (Muslim / Ibn Majah)
For many years, SANZAF has constructed water wells particularly in villages in Malawi where there are thousands of people who are struggling without access to safe and clean water. Your voluntary contribution will provide people living in poverty with the help they need and will also benefit you.
