To whom it may concern I wish to heartily congratulate Awqaf for the receiving the International Islamic Economy Award in the Waqf and Endowments Category; it is the most prestigious award for its unique, charismatic and remarkable work. It needs to acknowledged that the work of Awqaf has changed the lives of many ordinary people in South Africa. It is also my wish that the organisation continues to guard its mandate to contribute positively to the disenfranchised and poor people globally. Nation building inevitably remains one of our main objectives, therefore it is pleasing to mention that Awqaf recognises this need and aspires to develop and assist the poorest of the poor in our country. Thank you and kind regards

The winning of the Waqf component of the prize is a recognition and a responsibility. Awqaf SA need to recognize now its strength on the international stage and its important role and responsibility in Southern Africa. The prize is an accolade of Awqaf SA in addition to those we know working with AWQAF SA team. We may need to focus more on the reasons we won the prize as they are what made us stand out and do more of them for the sake of strengthening the Waqf system and our organization. This is a really good start for 2015. Let us all say hoorray to Haroon and Zeinoul as they receive the prize.

Seldom it is that you see so few do so much for so many. And what is even more heartening is to see that it is ordinary Muslims going out of their way to help people, alleviate suffering, share knowledge and bring smiles to the faces of those who until then could see no light at the end of their tunnel. In all the years that I have been associated with Awqaf South Africa, as a friend and supporter, I have never failed to be impressed with the energy and dedication that the whole team brings to every project they work on. And that is the key to their success which results in so much good being spread all around. In today’s world which seems seriously short of goodness, Awqaf South Africa is living proof that if a few good people get together, they can roll back the clouds and allow the sun to shine once again.

Dear Awqaf SA,
I pray this email finds the whole Awqaf SA’s family in the stage of good Iman and health.
I write to inform you that I am really pleased to know that your good organisation, the Awqaf SA has been awarded the Global Islamic Economy Award in the Category of Waqf and Endowment. Congratulation! I believe that this exciting news of the Awqaf SA winning such a prestigious Award surely will inspire many organisations to achieve the same.

The World Memon Organisation (WMO) Charitable Foundation congratulates the National AWQAF Foundation of South Africa on being awarded the Islamic Economy Award (Waqf & Endowments category) by Sh Mohammed bin Rashid bin Maktoum and organised by the Dubai Chamber of Commerce, Dubai Islamic Economy Development Centre, and Thomson Reuters. We wish you and your organisation all the successin your future endeavours. Thank you. Yours sincerely
Well done and congratulations on the global award, this is indeed a significant achievement.
Congratulations on receiving the International Islamic Economy Award in the Waqf and Endowments Category and thank you for helping to address one of the most pressing needs in the Muslim and world financial communities. This award opens a new era of responsibility – recognition on the part of every Muslim that we have duties to ourselves and the ummah. These are duties that we do not reluctantly accept but rather seize gladly, firm in the knowledge that there is nothing so satisfying to the spirit than giving our all to a difficult task. Awqaf SA should now not look at what’s ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ but ‘what works’ and ‘what does not work’ (within the boundaries of the Shari’ah). The new leadership within management has proven that the organisation is heading in the ‘what works’ environment and this will no doubt filter down the ranks and throughout all it’s projects. I thank Awqaf SA and its leadership for doing all they can to shape a better tomorrow for all. I make du’a that Allah will guard, guide and keep all safe in His hands. Insha-Allah Shukran ________________________________________

Mashallah! Congratulations – Really happy to learn that Awqaf SA is awarded the Global Islamic Economy Award. You deserve every bit of it with your pioneering work. Very proud of this Award for Muslims of South Africa.
This award is important in that a South African organization is recognized at an international level. It also gives recognition of the concept of waqf and endowments as important vehicles for change in the 21st century. Specifically for Awqaf SA, this award is a landmark moment in that the international recognition should give the organization greater impact and provide more local acceptance as a mainstream organization. It also recognizes that Awqaf AS has played a role in the revival of waqf organizations internationally, especially in Muslim minority countries. Looking into the future, the award also creates an affirmation of the vision, mission and operation of Awqaf-SA, creating an expectation and a management and performance demand that the organization then has fulfill. All the best wishes to Awqaf SA for this well deserved honour and also for its future endeavours. Aameen Wslm
