After acquiring land recently, the Institute For Islamic Services has not wasted time putting plans together in erecting the Skills development centre as originally proposed which will house several classrooms for aluminum and glass cutting, computer centre, cookery classes, flower arrangements, appliance repairs etc as well as a fully functional Mosque. There has been plenty of work that has gone into the planning of this new and dynamic project  over the past few months as we look to stem the tide against unemployment. In a recent survey we have seen a spike of

unemployment all around South Africa and we have concluded that this project can fight unemployment at the root. the Skills Development Centre will be open to any person irrespective of religion, race, creed or social standing.  We recognise that this is the first of its kind in this area and we invite people from the community to volunteer their services or ideas for the pleasure of Allah (SWT). We are looking sponsorship for different parts of the building, i.e. classrooms, equipment, building materials etc for sadaga-e-jaariyah or esaale sawab. We do not mind putting plaques of names of family or individual sponsors at different places in the building. Sadaga-e-Jaariyah or esaale sawab is continuous rewards recieved by us for good actions and deeds that will not only benefit us in this life but will continue to benefit us after our passing away.



In the name of Allah, the most beneficent, the most merciful. Peace and blessings be upon all the noble Prophets from Adam to Moses to Jesus to the final Prophet Muhammed.


I greet you all with the universal greeting of peace, Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatu, may the peace, blessings and mercy of Allah be upon all of you.

First and foremost, I would like to thank Allah Almighty for gathering us all together here today as we know nothing is possible without Him.

The Institute for Islamic Services has been running for over thirty years in Laudium and its surrounding areas. Although we are a Muslim organisation and proud to be one, our day to day activities are dedicated to helping irrespective of religion, race, creed or social standards all for the pleasure of Allah. Allah says in Chapter 2 Verse 274: “those who spend (in charity) of their goods by night and day, in secret and in public shall have their reward with their Lord. On them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve.”

Some of our projects include a feeding scheme, whereby approximately 5-600 people are fed daily; three free daycare centers, one in Laudium and two in Lotus Gardens; clothing distribution; a medical center; literacy classes and all other work can be seen in our magazine up front.

The Institute for Islamic Services would like to thank the Executive Mayor of the City of Tshwane, Mr. Kgosientso Ramokgopa, the ward councilor Mr. Muhammed Essop, and other members of the ANC for acknowledging the work that we do and therefore donating land space for us to continue uplifting the community. We also thank all organisers and everyone present at this function.

There are many people who are unemployed, most of whom have little training and few skills. More than half of the Grade 12 learners who leave school every year don’t have the sufficient basic skills to get work in any sector of the economy and therefore resort to begging. All these numbers could be higher. The Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) counselled a man to earn for himself and his family instead of begging. As the story goes: a man came to the Prophet and begged from him. The Prophet said; “have you nothing in your house?” the man replied; “yes, a piece of cloth, a part which we wear and a part which spread on the ground and a wooden bowl which we drink water from.” The Prophet said to him; “bring them to me” to which the man brought the items to him. The Prophet took the items and asked; “who will buy these?” Someone replied; “I will buy them for one coin.” The Prophet said twice or thrice as to who would offer more than one coin and someone to offer two coins. He sold them for two coins and said; “buy food with one coin and buy an axe and bring it to me.” The man brought the axe to him to which the Prophet fixed a handle on it with his own hands and said; “go gather firewood and sell it and do not let me see you for a fortnight.” After doing such, the man earned ten coins, bought food and a garment. The Prophet said, “This is better for you than for begging to come as a spot on your face on the day of Resurrection. Begging is correct for only three people, one in severe poverty; one in severe debt and one who must pay a difficult compensation.

We, as the Institute for Islamic Services have recognized that many of our youth are unemployed, inarticulate and lack the skills and knowledge to make something of themselves, which is why our aim is to establish a Youth Skills Development Centre. We want to use this story as an example and encourage people to assist us as the initial cost of the building is approximately six million Rand. The centre will aim to train and educate the youth on inexpensive trade such as glass and aluminum cutting; repairing of all appliances; flower arranging; culinary courses; switchboard operation; computer training and more.

We hope that with the help of the community, this centre will bring new light and hope to those who need it most.

Shukran jazillah, thank you very much.
