Nationa Grand Mosque of South Africa (NGMSA) (Masjid Nurul Yaqeen)
Proposed project of Building the headquarters of Muslim supreme council of South Africa (MUSCOOSA) at Pretoria in Gauteng province, the capital of the Republic of South Africa with a vision to serve as central office for administration of Islam and Muslim affairs in the Southern African countries including South Africa, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Mozambique, Namibia, Malawi, Botswana, Madagascar, Mauritius, etc. where such an establishment has never been built.
Bismillah Rahman Raheem,( in the name of Allah the most merciful the Compassionate), Alhamdu lillah Rabil Alameen, (all praise due to Lord of the worlds), who sent His messenger holy prophet Muhammad sallah llah aleih wasallama , (peace be upon him) as mercy to the entire creation with light of Islam that has illuminated the entire world starting from the middle east where Islam originated in Arabia to Africa, Asia, and west with one message that: “there is no God but Allah and Muhammad is his messenger (Laa ilaaha Illa llah Muhammad Rasulullah)”.
This one message of Islam has been embraced by the world across different cultures in completely different approaches exercised by social and political domination of those region.in regions where Islam gained political mighty such as Arab world including Northern Africa together with Turkey, Malaysia, and Indonesia, etc Islam is flourishing. while in regions where Islam did not gain political will but was embraced socially such as West and east African countries Including Uganda, Kenya, Tanzania, Nigeria, Senegal, Mali, Bukinafaso, Islam is balanced with Christianity and other religions , but in regions where Islam neither gained political will nor embraced socially such as Southern African countries including , South Africa, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Mozambique, Namibia, Malawi, Botswana, Madagascar, Mauritius, etc, Christianity is at high pick with other religions while Islam remains the minority.
Southern African countries has a population of approximately 300 million people with ratio of 1:10 Muslims, meaning every 10 people one is a Muslim. This gives us an estimate of 30 million Muslims in Southern African countries including the Islands of Madagascar and Mauritius.10 million out of 30 million Muslims are foreigners from all over the world migrating to Southern African region, some were brought by colonial rulers as workers, while others came to this region for economic reasons or as refugees. In South Africa, Islam is dominated by both Indians and Indonesian-Malaysians who were brought by colonial rulers to work in farms and factories as slaves.
Those who came Muslims originally from their home countries maintained their faith, but due to apartheid system of ruling by the white colonial rulers who separated people according to their colours, Islam did not spread from Indian and Malaysians to black African indigenous people except very few until today even after the apartheid, for this reason, the Indians and Indonesian-Malaysians forms minority of Muslims but they are dominant of Islam in South Africa, while other southern African countries only Indians has dominated Islam. The Indian, Indonesian-Malaysian dominating Islam of Southern Africa, have managed to develop Islam socially and economically but not politically.
Socially they have built beautiful mosques and small scale Muslim schools while economically they have managed to introduce Halaal food certification in food production industry but politically they have not they haven’t established an Islamic organisation that centralise affairs of Islam to identify a leader of Islam who unite them as one Muslim community, instead they linked their leadership and administration of Islam and Muslim affairs to leaders of Islam from their home countries where they originated. Adopting this culture of Islam in these regions without a unifying leader or uniform administration has given them an opportunity to consolidate themselves against the majority of Muslims of this region so that they only facilitate their own Indian, Indonesian-Malaysian Communities for the provision of basic education of Islam and advanced learning of Islamic literature leaving behind all other weak Muslims without proper basic education due to lack of qualified teachers to teach their own people. Lack of education of Islamic knowledge is the main stumbling block for spread of Islam in these communities that forms majority of Islam including other factors majorly racism.
As a solution to the problem and call for unity of Muslim community of South Africa The Muslim Supreme council of South Africa was established December 14th 2014. Project Overview Establishing headquarters of Muslim supreme councils of South Africa (MUSCOOSA) that was initiated 2014 as central office for uniform administration of Islam and Muslim affairs in South Africa that identified a leader of Muslim Community as the Grand Mufti of South Africa who is a symbol of unity by creating office of the Grand Mufti of South Africa as the main operational office that controls all other offices of the Organisation on religious matters.
As per administration structure of the organisation, each department is managed by a director in charge of that department reporting to head of departments as chairman Board of directors who reports to the president as chairman board of trustees. The general secretary who is head of secretariat in charge of all organisational secretarial work and secretaries of each department, He reports to the president. Departments include Hajj, Sharia, Zakat, education, endowment, welfare, women, youth, health, transport, Dawah, etc, all departments are monitored by head of departments. The President of the organisation is responsible for national and international relations, all countries of Southern African countries forms part of the administration, these countries are considered as Provinces of Southern Africa, therefore Muftis of these countries are members of the council of Sheikhs comprised of Provincial Muftis in the department of sharia.
