Darul Ihsan is an Islamic organisation (PBO) based in Durban, South Africa which works for the upliftment and empowerment of the community through the provision of a variety of essential and quality services.
Darul Ihsan Centre is a multi-purpose, Islamic service providing centre. ” Ihsan ” means Allah-consciousness; ” Ihsan ” also means compassion towards mankind and to carry out an anything with excellence.
One among its key objectives is to promote a better understanding of Islam and Muslims, thereby serving as a bridge-builder between communities.
In January 2000, the Darul Ihsan Research & Education Centre (DIRECT) was established in Kwa-Duguza (Stanger), a little town on the North Coast of the KZN Province, South Africa by Mufti Zubair Bayat. Since its inception, it has provided a variety of activities such as fatwa, publications, dawah, education, counselling, mediation, research and other related activities.
Due to the increasing needs and requirements of the community, services needed to be expanded. In December 2004, Darul Ihsan was relocated to Sea Cow Lake, Durban and named Darul Ihsan Centre.
Presently, the Darul Ihsan Centre Head office is located at Sea Cow Lake, Durban, a branch office in Overport and an Islamic Centre in Phoenix, Howick & Johannesburg.
