Malawi Islamic Zakaat Fund appeals for donation

The Islamic Zakaat Fund (IZF) under the Muslim Association of Malawi (MAM) has sounded an SOS (Save our Soul) calling on the Muslim community to make donations towards the fund.

Okhai appeals for help

Speaking at a conference held in Blantyre on Saturday, acting chairman of IZF, Kassam Okhai said it is time that the Islamic Community should understand the significance of charity and donate to the fund to ease its activities of supporting students with their education locally and internationally.

The Islamic Zakaat Fund was founded in 1991 to support needy Muslim youth with education bursaries and scholarships.

Generally, IZF contributes to student’s expenses such as tuition fees, examination fees, accommodation, transport, permit fees, medication expenses as well as monthly allowances for those who are abroad.

Since its registration in 1991, over 1,500 IZF sponsored students have graduated and are holders of different senior positions.

Currently, IZF is sponsoring over 300 continuing students at the University of Malawi (UNIMA) and other local colleges including over 500 students in secondary schools across the country.

    Mr Chebaisi,Iam made to believe that you are as uniformed as the rest of you.Who are killing people and children by the most despicable weapons which use poisonous chemicals in Syria? Is ASAAD,President of Syria a Whiteman? Thank you for accepting my views in the sense that,Boko Haraam kills Christians, as for Muslims,that is your problem,and in Zimbabwe,Chimulenga fighters were fighting imperialist forces which occupied their land and not minority Ndebeles who were also fighting the same enemies in Southern part of Zimbabwe,shame,you don’t know the history of Africa perse.In Libya,it is Gaddafi who terrorised his own Muslim fellows and not the Western countries as said in your narration.You reject the fact that Muslims don’t kill Chritians,Mr.Chebaisi our Bible says that THOU SHALL NOT LIE,I wonder whether in your Koran you have this commandment? How many times,your notorious AL Shabaab cross into Kenyan soil just to randomly massacre Christians?For your information,Gaddafi was not an African,he was an Arab living in African land.There are millions of Arab Muslims living in the Continent of Africa,but they are not harassed by Christians and have millions of Misikits but they are not bombed or harassed as Christians experience in Islamic dominated nations.And who are killing white people in Western Europe in the name ISLAM?.You have mentioned CASH GATE,what has it to do with my narration? If you have nothing to say,please shut your beak because every one on our planet knows that Muslims are blood-thirsty and thank Bakili Muluzi for opening the gate for the killers.You are trying hard to penetrate further to Southern Africa but,I can assure you that you will never succeed!!!!!!!!

    Mr Msowoya don’t comment issues that you no knowledge. For your information the so called torrorist doesn’t exist in Islam. I will not explore much. Those called torror groups are agents working for capitalists. Who knew that the much publicised African dictator(Gaddaf) his Son will be set free and set to rule Libya? I know you won’t understand because you’re a beneficiary of Western media whose interest is to serve the West. One thing you know is that the Arabs are so strong in defending their resources while you and I are not, take an example of your own Kayekela mining, where the Australia gets what they wanted without any hustles.
    By the way if your point is true, why Boko Haram a muslim group is killing and abducting Muslims? And what do those French citizens arrested in Boko Haram were doing?
    Coming to your own region (sourthen Africa). If really Muslims are killers, who mascared Innocent civilians during Mozambique war? Are they Muslims? What about Chimulenga war in Zimbabwe where innocent ndebeles were killed, are they Muslims who killed them?.
    And in your own Malawi, how many people are in extreme poverty due to govt mismanagement of resources whose leadership and key positions are held by Christians. And killed Gadama and friends, Njaunju & Chasowa, are they Muslims. What about the current waves of cashgates are they Muslims?

    What does Zakaat fUNDS stands for? Please muslims,we don’t want another BOKO HARAAM,AL SHABAAB, AL NUSLA,ISS and other terrorists groups in our country.We don’t want another MIDDLE EAST pandemonium in our country.Why is it that Chritians are not allowed in your countries for instance Yazid Christians who have been brutally massacred by Islamic terrorist thugs and no Islamic nation has come to condemn these ungodly killers.We don’t want blood spilling in our region otherwise packup and go to Syria,Iran,Yemen,Qatar the list is long and leave us alone.
