Saaberie Chishty Society Bursary 2023: Welcoming South African Students and Foreign National Students to Apply

About Saaberie Chishty Society
Named after a Sufi Spiritual Order, the Saaberie Chishty Youth Society was founded. Named for the Muslim Saint Hazraat Saabir Paak (Sheikh Sayed Alauddin Ali-Ahmed Saabir R.A), whose mausoleum is located in Kalyar Shareef Rurkie, Northern India. The famed Khwaja Gharibun-Nawaaz (Sheikh Sayed Muinuddin Hassan Sanjari R.A.), whose shrine at Ajmer Shareef in Rajistan, India, is the location of the second-largest yearly gathering of Muslims in the world, propagated the Chishtiya order across Asia.

The Saaberie Chishty Society has evolved from a single burial society into a multifaceted organization that supports the poor and needy, promotes Islamic education through madressas, upholds the true Islamic way of life through masjids, fosters knowledge of Ahle Sunnat Wa Jamaat through a research council, establishes Zia-ul-Uloom (an institute for higher Islamic education), trains future huffaz and ulama, and operates an ambulance.
