The Cape Town Islamic Educational Centre (CTIEC) premises in Eagle Park had a full house for its annual graduation and awards ceremony on Tuesday evening.

More than 900 people attended the event to celebrate the achievements of both students and teachers.

The institute, established in 2011, caters for the social and educational needs of learners in the city.

Lecturer Sayed Ridhwaan Mohamed says apart from the awards ceremony, guests were treated to inspirational and spiritual activities. Religious leaders from abroad also attended the event.

“We had a number of guest speakers, including Sayed Habeebul Haq Shah Saheb, principal of Jamia Amina in Pakistan, who delivered a short discourse on the importance of education. The graduation and turban ceremony took place under the guidance of Shaykh ul Hadith Moulana Sayed Haseen ud Deen Shah, head of Jamia Razvia Zia ul Uloom in Pakistan. Words of encouragement were also done by Hafez Moulana Ismail Hazarvi, deputy principal of Darul Uloom in Pretoria,” he says.

“Certificates and trophies were given to first, second and third place achievers in each class from our schools, madressas Tayyibah and Hasnain, as well as the CTIEC’s Zia ul Uloom. All students received medals for acknowledgment and participation as motivation is the key.”

Mohamed says students of Madressa Aisha, a women’s Islamic school that was established in August, also received certificates for their dedication to learning the religion. The school already has 82 students.
