Nakhlistan is a Persian word that means an ‘oasis’. Just like an oasis provide sustenance in the desert, likewise Nakhlistan assist the less fortunate within our community. The assistance is manifested through Soup Kitchens, Feeding Schemes, Ramadaan Fitrah Parcels, Iftaar [Breaking of Fast] to the Underprivileged, Monthly Necessities Distributed to Needy Families and the Eid-ul-Fitr Feeding Scheme (now extended to Eid-ul-Adha and Muharram).

This is in addition to providing an efficient Janaazah/Burial Service, establishing Jama’at Khanas and hosting Moulood-un-Nabi Programmes. Nakhlistan was founded 31 years ago by a group of friends, who saw the need within the community and on the eve of Eid-ul-Fitr in 1984, decided to cook two pots of food to be distributed to the poor and needy on the day of Eidul Fitr.

Thirty one years down the line, Nakhlistan has become a household name, synonymous with caring for the needy and cooking of huge pots of food for distribution amongst the less fortunate. On Eid-ul-Fitr 2014 over 75 000 cooked meals were directly distributed to underprivileged people. Furthermore, when disaster strikes, albeit natural [tornado or floods] or social [xenophobic attacks] Nakhlistan responds to the need of the time and assist wherever and whenever needed. Nakhlistan is organic in nature, growing with the community, serving as a trusted and reliable avenue for channelling assistance to those in dire straits.

Nakhlistan is not state funded and is solely dependent on financial support from the community. It has been through the generosity of the community that Nakhlistan has been able to run all these activities. Assist Nakhlistan to help the poor and the needy.

 

Nakhlistan will be cooking 50 pots of food on 15th October 2016 to feed the Poor and Needy for the 10th Muharram. Please contribute generously.
