The Nizamiye Mosque has been established in 2012 with the grace and mercy of Allah SWT. The Nizamiye Complex and specifically the Mosque are the outcomes and symbols of commitment and dedication to the selfless service of the Deen (faith) and the wider humanity. Programs and activities at the Mosque are based on the injunction of Quraan following the authentic Ahaadith and conduct of Nabi Muhammed S.A.W in conformance to the Ahlus Sunnah Wal Jamaa’ah.Nizamiye mosque website
Over the years many Islamic seminars, symposia, Jalsahs, Islamiat, and Qiraat Competitions and Olympiads have been held at Nizamiye. It has attracted many people of different faiths to visit and learn about the sublime Deenul Islam.
Alhamdulillah, the Nizamiye clinic, which was built and handed over to the Gauteng Department of Health to operate, offers free health service primarily to the less fortunate. Feeding schemes, outreach, and humanitarian aid also form part of our activities.
Allah (swt) blessed Nizamiye with visits and contributions of many prominent local and international Ulama and Qurraa.
We pray to Allah for His acceptance and may Allah grant success and safety to all the His Houses around the globe. Aameen.
