جَامِعُ الْحَبِيْبِيَّةِ الصُّوْفِيّة

 

!أَهْلًا وَّسَهْلًا وَّمَرْحَبًا بِكُم 

Assalaamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuhu

All praise is due to Allah, Lord, Sustainer and Creator of all existence. Eternal peace, blessings and salutations upon the Choicest of His creation, His Beloved Seal of all Divine Emissaries, Sayyiduna Muhammad Rasoolullah SAW, and upon his pure Ahlul Bayt and Companions.

Habibia Soofie Saheb Masjid has a rich spiritual legacy of serving the community for more than a century. This foundation was solidly laid by our Illustrious Predecessors, the founding fathers of this institution, Hazrath Goolam Muhammad Soofie Saheb Siddiqi RA and Hazrat Moulana Abdul Latief Qadi Siddiqi RA.

This legacy has been inherited by us and future generations, inspiring us to follow the teachings of the Holy Qur'an and the Pure Sunnah. It is the wish of our founders that this institution continues to see to the needs of the Muslim community at large, as well as to the non Muslim community. We will be posting, from time to time, links to addressing contemporary issues, at the end of this article.

We dedicate a token of special appreciation and gratitude to the following personalities, without whom this website would not see the light of day: Brother Thabiet Davids, Brother Iqbal Kagee and Brother Samier Saban. Furthermore, we are grateful to all those whose articles and pictures feature on this website, and with whom the copyright of their content is vested.

Through the infinite mercy and blessings of Allah SWT, we utilise today's technology through our website, to cater for the needs of everyone. We are now able to live stream at the following website: www.channel4sa.com

We take this opportunity to offer our heartfelt thanks and deepest gratitude to all those who donated towards the complex, and who continue to do so on a regular basis. May Allah SWT reward everyone generously.

Furthermore, we make du'a that Allah SWT showers His infinite mercy and blessings on the Muslim world as a whole. May Allah SWT grant us all the guidance and inspiration to become fully conscious of Him and devoted to Him.

Assalaamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuhu

Dear beloved Brothers and Sisters,

Assalamu alaykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatu

In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful

On this special day of Eid ul Fitr, we express our immense praise and deepest gratitude to the Almighty Allah (SWA) for his infinite blessings and mercy, having gifted us with the opportunity to experience another blessed month of Ramadaan. May he shower His peace and blessing upon the Holy Prophet, Nabi Muhammad (PBUH), his companions, his family and followers.


On behalf of the The Habibia Soofie Trust Committee and the Imaamat we wish all the Musaalis, the residents of the surrounding areas, all communities of the Western Cape and our visitors from near and abroad, a very blessed and joyous EID Mubarak. May the Almighty Allah enlightened your homes, bless your families with peace and happiness and may he keep us all on the Siratul-Mustaqeem. We express our gratitude to all those that have contributed to activities at Habibia Mosque during this very blessed and spiritual month of Ramadaan.


• We thank all the Hufaath who have led us during Taraweeh, Salatul Layl and Tasbih Salah, having the beautiful Qur'an with so much passion and sincerity, often bringing tears to our eyes
• Thank you to the Muattheens who woke up during the early hours of the morning and stayed up till late at night to call us to salaah and reciting during the salaah breaks
• We thank our local Moulana’s and visiting Shuyukh for the lectures conducting during the Jumuah and Taraweeh Salaahs.
• We also thank the cleaning staff and all those that have contributed to the maintenance of the mosque. It’s a huge task to ensure that the mosque is kept clean and all provisions for the Musaalis are met with a high standard.
• Finally, we also thank those that have contributed financially and in kind toward the Ramadaan programs, the food hampers, the Zamillooni Blanket and Food Initiative and towards the maintenance of the mosque, both local donors and throughout Southern Africa.

Jazakallah to all and may Almighty Allah bless you and your families for your contribution.
THE HABIBIA SOOFIE TRUST COMMITTEE

A Tribute to Nelson Mandela

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

The past few days have seen the world descend on South Africa, as locals and the international populations have paid tribute to former president and struggle stalwart Nelson Mandela.

The Habibia Soofie Masjid trustees, committee members and Musallees express our deepest appreciation to Nelson Mandela and his family for the invaluable contribution he has made towards fighting oppression of all forms. He fostered values of humility, forgiveness, kindness, respect and appreciation, values that are holism and synonymous with the teachings of our very own Islam. This institution was privileged and honoured to have him visits the Habibia Junior Madressa and us shortly after his release. He is a towering individual and a giant amongst leaders.

We extend our deepest condolences to his family, friends and all South Africans, whose lives were so irrevocably touched by one of the truly great heroes in the history of the world. Mandela will be remembered by all generations as someone who rose above the ordinary to achieve something, which many believed to be impossible - to unite people of diverse and often opposing beliefs and backgrounds to create an equal society for all. Let us honour his legacy by strengthening our bonds across cultural, religious, class, racial, gender and generational boundaries to create a South Africa, which is a shining beacon of hope and inspiration to the world. We pray that leaders and the South African citizens adopt the values that he has espoused and promoted. We hope that in celebrating his legacy that the political leaders will strive to emulate his courage and leadership.

Quotes of the Auliyaa

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

Imam Muhammad Ibn Hanafiyyah RAImam Abu l-Qasim al-Qushayri narrates from Muhammad bin al-Husayn (may God have mercy on him) from Mansur bin Abdullah from ‘Ammi al-Bastami from Abu Yazid al-Bistami:

“I have engaged in spiritual struggle and ascetic exercises for thirty years and found that there is nothing harder for me than the knowledge [of the Divine Law] and adherence to it. And were it not for the difference of opinion of religious scholars, I would have remained where I was [at the beginning], for the disagreement of scholars is a [divine] blessing, except in one issue – that is, the understanding of Gods uniqueness.” (Risala of Imam al-Qushayri).
