IMAM MANIE MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP

Verified: IMAM MANIE MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP
This scholarship was established in 2008/1429AH honour of Imam Abdurahman Bassier who served the South African Muslim community with distinction for over forty years. Born on the 19th January 1923, he was appointed Imam of the Masjid Boorhaanol Islam in Longmarket Street Cape Town on the 9th September 1963 and continued in that capacity until his passing away on the 24th July 2004.In that time, he spearheaded the establishment and development of a number of organizations amongst which were the Boorhaanol Recreational Movement, the Muslim Prisons Board and the Tana Baru Trust. He also served as chairman of the Muslim Judicial Council in the early eighties and was a founder member of the Inter-Faith Forum. However, what made the Imam really stand out amongst his peers was his exceptional leadership style - always leading from the front, never shirking the most mundane of communal chores, never judgmental, never destructive in his criticisms and always tempering it with tolerance and the gentlest of humour, always ensuring that his approach and solution to a problem had its roots firmly grounded in the Islamic ethos.The scholarship is an attempt to nurture this kind of leadership and applicants will thus have to demonstrate that they embrace if not as yet practise such a leadership style. A vision of how they envisage a Muslim leader's role within a secular South African society would lend weight to the application. A good tertiary academic record is advisable. Financial need is taken into account but is NOT a primary consideration. The scholarship is open to all male students from second year onwards studying at any Western Cape tertiary institution. A similar scholarship, the Amatie Memorial Scholarship , caters for the needs of female students. Closing date for both scholarships is the 31st December 2012.? ANNOUNCEMENT We are pleased to announce that the Imam Manie Memorial Scholarship for the 2011 academic year has been awarded to UWAIS RAZACK of Lansdowne Cape Town. Uwais is currently in his third year of study in the Department of Civil Engineering at the University of Cape Town. Uwais matriculated with distinction in 2007 from Wynberg Boys High School where he was Head Prefect. In his Wynberg High Testimonial it is recorded by the Headmaster Mr KC Richardson that "his year of tenure (as Head Prefect) was characterized by a humble, quiet yet confident style of leadership, where consultation and example were the dominant factors". Uwais then spent a year(2008) in Egypt studying Arabic & Quranic studies, learning the Science of Tajweed under the renowned Sheikh Ismail Noman at the Neel Mosque. His current leadership roles include being a committee member of the MSA Outreach Portfolio, being Tutor & Mentor for high school learners at the Leadership College in Manenberg and having been the Orientation Leader of the EBE Faculty at UCT. His interests & hobbies include photography and graphic design, Arabian & Persian calligraphy, hiking and sport(soccer, hockey and swimming). The IMMS Selection Committee wishes Uwais every success in his studies and may he continue to grow in stature as a young and exceptional leader within the Muslim as well as the broader community.
