The Muslim Judicial Council launched a historic Haafith Academic Support programme, in collaboration with the Western Cape Education Department (WCED), the MJC’s Department of Quraanic Affairs, Awqaf (SA) and Haafith schools of Cape Town at the MJC offices today.

Haafith Schools are institutes that teach the memorization of the Holy Quraan.

The programme aims to academically educate haafith students on Saturdays. The classes are taught by retired educators who dedicate their time to teach the required subjects – making learners eligible to return to the school environment in the appropriate grade.Hufaath Academic project committee: From left: Shaykh Abdul Moutie Moerat (MJC Senior Council member), Mr Saul Philander (WCED representative), Shaykh Riad Fataar (MJC Head of Education), Mr Jerry Mofaka (WCED representative), Shaykh Irafaan Abrahams (MJC President), Shaykh Shahid Esau (MJC Imaarah member), Mr Goosain Emeran (Education Advisor).

The programme also requires parents to complete a special home-schooling form arranged between the MJC (SA) and the WCED. This will ensure learners remain registered with the WCED through the CEMIS number.

The MJC would also assist Haafith schools in the curriculum, the upskilling of educators, administrative functions and infrastructure requirements as per municipal by-laws.

Haafith schools who are compliant with the above are issued with a compliance certificate, valid for one year.

“This ground-breaking project – a first for South Africa – comes at no cost to the Haafith schools, parents and learners,” said MJC’s Head of Education, Shaykh Riad Fataar.

“We thank Awqaf (SA) for sponsoring this project and we welcome further financial assistance from other sponsors to further expand the programme,” Shaykh Fataar concluded.
