The main purpose of the visit was to establish closer acquaintances with the community members in Mauritius, and a visit to the Mosque, Madressah and Kabrastan. Mauritius Jamaat which is in Port Louis has a Musafirkhana within the Mosque complex, expansion work has been undertaken by the Jamaat. Students from Madagascar who are pursuing higher education in Port Louis are accommodated in the Musafirkhana.
The only Jamaat of Mauritius was founded in the early 60s, presently it has about 200 heads, and the Mauritius Jamaat is under the Conseil Regional of Madagascar (CROI). It was pleasing to witness a vibrant community actively involved in religious activities and social services. The Madressah for boys and girls is managed by some volunteer teachers of the Jamaat, and the Resident Aalim Seyed Shafqat Ali Naqvi also takes regular classes at the Madressah.
