Maḥajjah Institute

Maḥajjah Institute was founded by Mufti Taha Karaan and Mufti Azhar Seedat and is dedicated to research, translation, publication, and training on the phenomenon of Shīʿism. The institute conducts research and translates and publishes literature regarding Shīʿism for public consumption, benefit, and protection. It also provides expert training to graduate ʿulamāʾ on Shīʿism to further safeguard Muslim communities across South Africa. 

The Maḥajjah Institute is the culmination of a near two-decade long effort by Mufti Taha dedicated to the defence and vindication of truth.

The defence and vindication of truth entails much tireless, selfless work. This project requires a collective effort and collaboration with all who are able to assist in the continuation of this two-decade long defence and vindication of truth.
