During the school break Hayaat team took the pleasure in entertaining your kids with fun packed activities.

The activity took place at Hayaat Fitness Centre Shia Mosque, 3rd Floor on Monday 15th Sept -20th Sept 2014.Kids aged girls from 4years to 11years & boys aged 4years to 8 years, time 9:00am-12:00pm & 3:00pm-5:00pm. Boys above the age of 8years joined our evening session from 5:30pm onwards


The following were the activities with the pictures:

  • ART & CRAFT :

Though it was an expensive activity but an exciting one too, kids were able to express and apply creative skills and their imagination through visualization such as painting, drawing, coloring and much more. The kids loved this activity.

j    k



Our assistant manager, Mrs. Saeeda Jaffer came up with a unique activity that the kids thoroughly enjoyed. This activity and were always supervised by our trainer Athumani along with atleast 2 volunteers on standby. The kids loved and enjoyed his interpersonal and kid friendly personality


BADMINTON This team sports was an introduction to our kids who unfortunately have had very limited exposure to this kind of activity. With a unique ball designed for indoor tennis this was a sweat breaking activity with a lot of enthusiasm from the kids. Badminton was a popular activity too.



Designed to stretch and sweat the young energetic bodies of our youths, this activity was conducted by a professional trainer. Although very beneficial to the bodies, the kids had to be persuaded to embrace this energetic and blood pumping activity.



Again, a beneficial exercise that took a little persuasion from the kids to enjoy this extreme stretching activity. It will take a few more sessions for the kids to fully understand the benefits and joy of this centuries old meditation technique.


All in all the kids had a rip-roaring fun time. It was suspected that the parents had even a better time enjoying their kid’s exhaustion when they got home, ate a hearty meal and went straight to bed! Parents have repeatedly asked us for more of these sessions and Hayat Fitness Centre is dedicated to provide many more quality sessions of these kind.

Included are pictures of our kids enjoying this treat by their parents. The finale of this camp was on the last Saturday where the kids thoroughly enjoyed a party served with donuts from MotoMoto!



World Federation president, Alhajj Dr. Asgher Moledina visits Dar-es-salaam

On Tuesday, 11th February, the president of the World Federation Alhajj Dr. Asgher Moledina visited the facilities of Dar-es-salaam Jamaat with their president, Alhajj Shiraz Bhai Walji.

On a whirlwind tour, the delegation first visited the Autistic center operated by the Central Board of Education (CBE). Currently there are 40 students enrolled and a waiting list of 15 additional students. The delegation had a discussion with Dr. Nafisa who trains the teachers and counsels the parents on the requirements of special needs children. There is a huge demand for approximately 200 children and adequate resources will be required including property expansion, special needs teachers and other resources.

The delegation proceeded to view the newly opened grand swimming pool at the Al-Muntazir grounds. Dr. Moledina was impressed at the grandeur of the swimming pool and was pleased with the result of the part donation of WF funds of $50,000 and felt that it was well spent.

On the 5th of October, 2013 the KSIJ Dar in conjunction with the World Federation and Africa Federation had organized a training session at the Men’s Imambargah to assist our volunteers, the JAMSA students and medical staff, on how to use the AED in the event of an emergency.

AED (Automatic External Defibrillator) is a portable device that checks the heart rhythm. If needed, it can send an electric shock to the heart to try to restore a normal rhythm. AEDs are used to treat sudden cardiac arrest (SCA).

The World Federation donated not only 1 AED unit to the KSI Jamaat but also organized Dr. Mohamed Peera of Toronto, Canada (originally from Dar-es-salaam) to conduct a demonstration on using the AED unit as well as provide other training to those interested for emergency first aid chest compression and airway (CPR), Dr. Peera brought along a mannequin donated by WF with him for demonstration.

The program started with the recitation of the Holy Quran. After which Dr. Peera was welcomed to enlighten us more on the AED unit. He explained to us on the how to use the machine step by step by physically demonstrating it for us on the mannequin.  A number of questions were asked by the audience present and were also given the opportunity to try demonstrating it. Overall, the program was a huge success with participants acquiring practical knowledge and a sense of accomplishment in serving the community in the future. A list of these participants will be posted along with their duties to be on call during our functions at the mosque and the Mehfil.

Our President, Shiraz P. Walji was also present and he expressed his gratitude to  Dr. Peera for coming here and educating us more on the this gadget, that will help us make a difference when in time of an emergency.
