The Darul-Uloom has a Da’wa and Publications department that publishes booklets, newsletters, Madresa text books, and other literature for free distribution. This department also oversees 15 maktabs in the Eastern Cape Province, most of which are situated in rural areas. These maktabs provide Islamic education to children in outlying areas, who normally would not be able to attend any Madresa. Da’wah work is also done from these maktabs, as well as social and welfare work.


The PE Darul-Uloom also has a welfare department that provides food and assistance to the destitute in our region.


We accept sponsorships for needy students, as well as any of the above programs. We also welcome sponsorships towards running costs and maintenance, including remunerations for teachers and staff.
