The Muslims Students Association (MSA) (University of Johannesburg- UJ) in conjunction with Awqaf SA and the Islamic History, Arts & Culture Centre (IRCICA) will be hosting an evening of culture and inspiration.

Entitled Jalsah 2006, this event will take place on Saturday, the 2nd of September 2006 at the Sanlam Auditorium at the University of Johannesburg – Auckland Park, Kingsway Campus. (Parking available on Campus off  Ripley Road)

Featuring poetry, plays, skits, martial arts and more, Jalsah 2006 promises to be the social highlight of the year. Artists and groups that will be performing include:

  • Our own “Qari Abdul Basit” (Madressa Zakariya)
  • Malik Arafat- Poetry recital
  • Come and enjoy and embrace children from Somalia, Turkey, Burundi, Mali, Senegal, Ivory Coast, Rwanda and more  and listen to their melodious Nasheeds/Nazms.

Come and experience the highlight of the evening:   plays performed by members of the MSA and other community members. One  is entitled “Unforgettable Echoes,” which focuses on the spread of Islam – as a culture and religion, through South Africa as well as the struggle many of the early Muslims suffered in our country. The other  is  “The Peoples Imaam” and tells the tale of Imaam Haroon, a leader who played a vital role in the spread of Islam and who suffered imprisonment, torture, and death under the apartheid government for his beliefs.

Proceeds raised from this event will be used to fund various social, community, and  youth projects  by Awqaf SA and the MSA.
