Update on Thornton Islamic Society Petition

Published on Tuesday, 11 February 2014

Alghamdulilah and Shukran for all the duah's regarding our petition to The Mayor. The meeting between the Thornton Islamic Society and Patricia de Lille for Cape Town was a successful one. The Mayor has committed to us receiving a long term lease and lived up to the philosophy of Cape Town being a Uni City. We would like to thank you all for your signatures, support and Duah's. We are looking forward to a long and prosperous relationship with all residents of Thornton.

Grant the Thornton Islamic Society a long term lease on ERF 1102 or allow for them to purchase the Erf

Published on Wednesday, 5 February 2014

The Thornton Islamic Society currently does not have a permanent place of worship and have been in negotiations with the City for years now to no avail. Yesterday they launched an online petition at: https://www.change.org/en-GB/petitions/patricia-de-lille-grant-the-thornton-islamic-society-a-long-term-lease-on-erf-1102-or-allow-for-them-to-purchase-the-erf

Please can we ask that you sign our the petition and also share this petition with your friends and family; they do not have to live in Thornton. The more people we make aware of our plight, the more the City is forced to take note and act.

Heidelberg mosque opens

Published by Voice of the Cape on Friday, 5 April 2013

Some 272km outside of Cape Town - a distance covered in a leisurely three hour drive along the N2 - Muslims will find a new place to stop in the rural town of Heidelberg. After Caledon with its functional jamat-khana and Bredasdorpwhere a new mosque is in the process of being built, this is the next town where Muslims will find a mosque, one which is due to be opened formally on Sunday.

According to Siraj Logday, owner of the family owned chain of pet stores, Pet Adventure, the new Masjidul Yunus at 33 Hoog Street in Heidelberg was named for his grandfather Yunus Logday and was purchased on auction. "It used to be a community hall that belonged to the Old Apostolic Church and is about 100 years old. Since then, with the help of my family and some sponsors, we have spent quite a bit to renovate the building, while keeping its historic character," he told VOC on Friday.
