The MSA seeks to bring the Quran back to the centre of our lives
Johannesburg, 25 April 2015 – After months of hard work by the project team of MSA Union and the generous sponsorships from AWQAF SA, amongst others, the National Quran Conference is set to take place this coming week, inshaa’Allah (God willing). Starting on the evening of Thursday 30 April 2015 and continuing to Sunday 3 May 2015 at Wits University in Johannesburg, the conference promises to be an inspirational and educational event not to be missed.
About the Conference
The idea of our late president and visionary leader of MSA Union, Marhoom Yusuf Talia, the MSA Union National Quran Conference aims to create a forum in which students and the general public can come together to explore the Quran and its relevance to every aspect of our everyday lives.
The Quran will be explored in various dimensions with topics including the environment, politics, economics and finance, science, spirituality, youth, intellectual development, civic engagement, and aqeedah as well as studying the Sciences of the Quran (ulumul quraan). Attendees will also be gifted with a range of Quranic recitals in various revealed modes of Qirat.
The lineup of scholarly guests for the event includes: Sheikh Mufti Kamaluddin Ahmed (Student of Sheikh Zulfikaar Naqshabandi), Moulana Taha Karaan (SA), Sheikh Riyaad Walls (SA), Moulana.Dr. Ashraf Dockrat (SA), Zakariyya Harnekar (Teacher at Darun Na’eem) and Abbas Darab (Student of Sheikh Hamza Yusuf).
