Our Heritage and Foundation

The establishment of Habibia Soofie Masjid took place in 1905, in an area that was desolate at the time. Since its very inception, Habibia has not merely been a place of worship, but also a complex actively devoted to the welfare of the community. This is because the lifestyles of the Auliya inspired the founding of Habibia- personalities who emphasised selfless service to humanity as an integral part of one's worship to Allah. Hazrath Moulana Abdul Latief Qadi RA made sure that the masjid made its priority the feeding of the poor, the housing of orphans, and a place of solace and assistance for individuals and their problems.

As the needs of the community developed, the founders recognised the importance of having a centre of learning that would incorporate Islamic spirituality, education and social upliftment. Thus, in the precincts of Habibia Soofie Masjid a centre of Islamic learning and knowledge was established. Our founders illustrated education in the example that they set, as it was a key pillar of their teachings. The great legacy that they left for us highlights this. The institution conducted Islamic Classes for various categories of learners. This included advanced classes for Islamic Educators and for the training of Imams. Thus, the wider Muslim community recognised the institution in its earlier years for the quality of the Islamic Education disseminated to them. Unfortunately, due to a lack of funding and resources the centre could not sustain itself.
