The United Ulama Council of South Africa (UUCSA)* and the National Awqaf Foundation of South Africa (AWQAF SA) have jointly announced and declared Friday 9 June / 14 Ramadaan as MY WAQF FRIDAY.
A special “MY WAQF KHUTBAH” (Friday sermon/lecture) has been prepared jointly by the two organisations and circulated to UUCSA affiliates together with additional resource material.
In a statement issued to UUCSA affiliates, the Secretary General, Moulana Yusuf Patel said:
“The United Ulama Council of South Africa has endorsed the Call made by various Ulama and Awqaf SA to declare the second Jumu’ah of Ramadaan as MY WAQF FRIDAY . It is in this light that this Khutbah has been jointly prepared. We implore all Friday Imams to deliver this Khutbah (with your additions and amendments) on Friday 9th June 2017 ( 14th Ramadhan 1438) as a national lecture on waqf. Affiliates are urged to request Imams within your constituency to speak on waqf and circulate the My Waqf Khutbah to them together with the additional resource material.
Your cooperation will help in reviving the forgotten legacy of waqf especially at a time when we need to initiate sustainable economic, social and educational development programmes in our country which has an official unemployment rate of 26.5%. and where about 63% of young South African children live in poverty. “Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.” “
