Madrasah Mu’einul Islam (for Muslim girls) is situated in Zakariyyah Park, a suburb approximately 30 kilometers south of Johannesburg, in the province of Gauteng, South Africa. Back in 1985, under the guidance and inspiration of the Mufti Mahmood-ul-Hassan Ganghohi RA, the Madrasah opened its doors with a handful of students and a few teachers. Its humble beginnings were in a house in Lenasia and thereafter, moved on to its own premises in Zakariyyah Park.
Alhamdulillah, today, the Madrasah has grown with over 250 students and is flourishing with students from a host of countries and a compliment of highly qualified and experienced teachers. A large number of the students are from such parts of the globe where adequate tertiary Islamic education is not available. Thus far, scores have graduated and are serving as teachers and Aalimahs in their respective areas.
