Alhamdullillah 1988 saw the birth and establishment of Madressa Zia-Ul-Badr in Johannesburg, South Africa with the mashwarah and advice of senior Ulama (Hazrat ML. Abdul Gaffar Nadwi, Hafez Dawood Daya, ML. Ismail Abdul Razzack, ML. Cassim Sema and ML. Mohammed Hassim R.A.) and some local prominent ulema aiming to fulfil the heartfelt dream of educating and addressing the needs of those entering the fold of Islam as well as muslims facing the challenges of having non-muslim family or tribal members.
