Islamic Relief SA hosts Evening of Inspiration Concert
Islamic Relief SA, in collaboration with various renowned Islamic nasheed artists, is set to host its first ever Evening of Inspiration Concert (EOI) in Johannesburg, Laudium, Durban and Cape Town.
“Apart from raising funds for the needy, which is an ongoing process at Islamic Relief, this show aims to bring communities together through Nasheed,” says Fatima Carrim, National EOI Co-ordinator. “What sets this show apart is the sheer level of performers that are performing together.”
The evening will host renowned nasheed artists: South Africa’s very own Zain Bhikha, Dawud Wharnsby (UK), Khalid Belrhouzi (Morocco) and US comedian Omar Regan.
“Performing at EOI is an honour for me, especially because I am once again sharing the stage with such talent, and more so because we are there not just for the entertainment but to carry out our duty as human beings in helping those that cannot help themselves,” explains Zain Bhikha.
The event will take place in various areas on these dates:
- Friday 27 September – Laudium Community Centre
- Saturday 28 September – Wits Linder Auditorium, Johannesburg
- Friday 4 October – Durban City Hall
- Saturday 5 October – Cape Town City Hall.
Tickets cost R130 per person and are available from Computicket (www.computicket.com) and all Islamic Relief offices. All proceeds in aid of Islamic Relief projects.
“In this time where poverty and other ills are strife, we should aim to do whatever it takes to assist those in need so that their numbers will decline,” adds Bhikha.
