Flash News No. 238 – October 2023

In Chapter 4, verse 147 of the Noble Qur’aan, Allah Ta’ala states:

What can Allah gain by your punishment, if you are grateful and you believe? Nay, it is Allah that recognises (all good), and knoweth all things.

This verse unequivocally testifies to the power of the quality of gratitude as being so powerful that it can mitigate or avert the chastisement and punishment of Allah Ta’ala.

Our AGM 2023 held this past Saturday was indeed a great success. Your esteemed presence and numerous messages of support contributed to it. To this end we offer you our heartfelt and sincerest gratitude for taking the time to grace our function.

Salient statistics from our report:

Total number of queries fielded by the Helpline during the period under review 13 593
Total number of new applications received in the past year 561
Total number of certificates withdrawn/cancelled in the period 171
Total number of plants certified in the past year 355
Total number of inspections conducted 29 557
Total number of social media followers 103 221
Total number of staff under direct employment 166
Total number of staff indirectly employed 490

The highlight of the event was when our Key Note speaker, Moulanal Arshad Fakir, took to the stage and delivered his discourse which  addressed the societal scourge of harbouring suspicion, nurturing & spreading it, and the evil consequences of same. In his discourse, there were subtle warnings to those who use social media platforms to advance this evil, more so, when it happens to be fabrications and lies constructed by misinformation and spread by mischief-mongers. His talk left the audience in awe, but most importantly, all present left with an understanding of the virtue of uniting the Ummah over the perils of disunity and fragmentation.

As we approach the year end season, all of us at SANHA take this opportunity of wishing you and your families peace, prosperity, khair (Goodness) and Aafiyaah ( holistic well-being). Aameen

We are privileged to be of service to you.
