Alhamdulillah by the grace of Allah (S.W.T), the Al Asghery Housing has been successfully completed with process of the handing over of the apartments to the buyers has now been done.
This housing project has benefitted our community members of our Dar es Salaam Jamaat. The entire project is on a ‘Rent to Own’ scheme basis which will eventually relieve the buyers of the rental burden, and will become home owners, especially with trend of the economic challenges which exists and may persist for a long time, as being predicted by the economists.
The Al Asghery Residency housing project has been possible with the keen support of the Africa Federation and the farsighted vision of its leadership and the implementation by the Housing Board in supporting our member Jamaats for the benefit of our community members.
We would like to express our sincere gratitude for the support and encouragement from the AFED Chairman, Alhaj Shabir Najafi, his office bearers and trustees.
We wish also to take this opportunity to thank the President of the World Federation Alhaj Anwarali Dharamsi for his support. In addition, we also thank the World Federation Executive Councillor Alhaj Ahmad Daya who has been the backbone of this project in soliciting funds. Our thanks go to Alhaj Murtaza Merali of SANITAS of U.K. for the donation and Alhaj Gulam Dewji family (famously known as GD) from Dar es Salaam for donation of the plot – all towards the good cause of the housing for our community members. Thanks are due also to KSIMC of London for supporting in funding a 2 bedroom apartment.
The project was diligently handled by the AFED Housing Development Board members with great appreciation for their dedication and tireless services, they are; Sister Shakera Dhanani, Sister Zakiya Khamisa and Alhaj Azim Mawji.

The building will be fully managed by the buyers themselves after them forming owners’ association. The AFED Housing board will be there to assist the owners’ association during the first three months in settling down etc., and thereafter will be monitoring the upkeep of the building on a regular basis, whilst the onus of good housekeeping, cleanliness, safety and management shall be with the owners’ association.
We wish the buyers a very comfortable stay and pray to Almighty to increase in their sustenance and development for the future of the families.
