The Cape Town Islamic Educational Centre (CTIEC) graduated and certified ulama, imams and huffaz at the Ebrahim Karrim Hall in Cape Town in Eagle Park on the evening of Wednesday 29 November.

The ceremony was held under the patronage of Shaykh ul Hadith Peer Sayed Haseen ud Deen Shah and in the presence of Shaykh ul Mashaikh Hazrat Mufti Akbar Hazarvi and his deputy Allama Moulana Ismail, assisted by the president of the Muslim Judicial Council Shaykh Irafaan Abrahams.

This year’s ceremony boasted nine graduates, in addition to awarding 410 students of the Deen (Creed) on their achievements, of which around 170 are women.

The ceremony started with verses from the Holy Quran read by a young qari from the Harrow Central Masjid in London, “Sahebzada Uwais ul Malik Luqmanvi” who read the praises in a melodious tone. This was followed by a nasheed performance by the Quloobul Aaashiqeen group.

The keynote speech was delivered by Allama Moulana Ismail Hazarvi, who proudly congratulated the CTIEC on its the achievements and the development of its faculties, programmes, studies and research that contribute to meeting the community’s needs and aspirations. He further stated that institutions like the CTIEC are responsible for preserving the Deen in their own way.

Speaking on supporting the efforts of the CTIEC, the head of the West Coast Ulama, Shaykh Riefat Carolus, told the audience that he is pledging that all the madrassas and masaajids of the West Coast will affiliate with the Cape Town Islamic Educational Centre based on its production of ulama and scholars.

Graduates of the prestigious Al Azhar University were among the panel of guests at the graduation ceremony. Shaykh Zaid Fataar Al Azhari, president of the World Organisation of Al Azhar Graduates (SA), delivered a few words of wisdom, saying: “Parents should be proud of your children, Allah chose for them to be learning this Deen, he made dua that Allah grants the institution with Barakah.”

Learners from all the divisions and madrassas that fall under the CTIEC were awarded with medals, trophies and certificates for the first three places.
Learners were also awarded Most Improved, Most Cooperative and the Dux Award for each madressa respectively. Madressas that were in attendance were Madressa Tayyibah, Madressa Dusuqqiyyah, Madressa Hassanain and Madressa Aisha.

According to CTIEC spokesperson Sayed Ridhwaan Mohamed, the highlight of the night was the “Datarbandi Ceremony”. This was a special moment where the graduates were crowned with a turban by senior ulama as a form of certification.

Turbans were tied by Allama Moulana Hafez Ismail Hazarvi, Shaykh Irafaan Abrahams, Shaykh Riaad Fataar, Shaykh Hassen Walele and other ulama who were in attendance.

“Learners and the community are indeed lucky and it is a great favour of Allah that they are at a centre run under the leadership of the Ashraaf Ahlulbayt (Descendants of Nabi) and by supporting the CTIEC it is indeed a form of Sadqah, when a graduate serves you will continuously receive reward in the court of Allah,” said Hazart Mufti Akbar Hazarvi, principal at Darul Uloom Pretoria.

The ceremony was attended by just over 50 ulama and public figures who participated in the various presentations during the ceremony.

Mohamed added that the residents of Cape Town have shown a unique loyalty and show of support to the CTIEC over the years, which has indeed allowed them to reach a milestone of graduating ulama who will serve the various communities.
