The Jamiatul Ulama was established on the 15 January 1955 (20 Jumaadal Ula 1374) at the East Street Madrasah, in Pietermaritzburg. The primary objective was the preservation, protection and propagation of true and pristine Islam. All Praise to Allah Ta’aala, this body has evolved to become a fortress of Deen, holding aloft the banner of Islam in this era of different trials and tribulations. It was indeed a momentous occasion when our senior founder members of the Jamiat met to establish the organization which was to become the official body of religious, educational and other affairs of the Muslim Community of KwaZulu-Natal.
