About Syaikh Seraj Hendricks
Shaykh Seraj Hendricks currently serves as an imam and teacher at the Zawiya Mosque in Cape Town, which was founded by his grandfather, Shaykh Muhammad Salih Hendricks, in 1923. He is the third generation of shayukh to serve at the Zawiya Mosque which has taught the works of Imam al-Ghazali continuously since its inception.
Shaykh Seraj studied for many years under his uncle Shaykh Mahdi Hendricks before departing to study usul al-fiqh at Umm ul-Qura university in Makkah. He remained in Makkah for 11 years as a student of Sayyid Muhammad bin ‘Alawi al-Maliki, the great muhadith, Maliki faqih and Sufi shaykh of the Ba’Alawi way.
Among many other mashaykh, Shaykh Seraj took ‘ijazah from the great Imam of the Yemen, Ahmad Taha Mashhur al-Haddad, and was appointed as the khalifah of Sayyid Muhammad bin ‘Alawi al-Maliki in South Africa.
He is currently reading for his PhD at the University of South Africa, after having been awarded a Masters degree (cum laude) for his thesis at the University of Cape Town on religious practices in the Cape region.
Formerly Chairman of the Fatwa Committee of the Muslim Judicial Council of South Africa, Shaykh Seraj is Hakim of the Crescent Observer's society and patron of Dome Publications. He also serves as a member of Stanlib's Shari'ah Board.
He has translated Imam al-Ghazali's "Ayyuhal Walad" and some of the writings of Shaikh Yusuf of Makasar, an early pioneer of Islam in South Africa.
Imam Ghazali’s Ayyuhal Walad -, "Dear beloved son," is a letter to a student by Hujjat al-Islam Imam Abu Hamid al-Ghazali. Imam Ghazali is remembered by scholars as the "Proof of Islam" and a renewer (mujadid) of the Islamic faith in its fifth century (1058-1111 CE). Ghazali is a towering intellectual and spiritual colossus whose genius has enlightened for over 800 years.
Admission is free. All are welcome.
