After applying to City Council for ground to build a Masjid, a site was granted in 1970 and in 1973 construction of the Masjid complex commenced. In that same year the Primrose Park Muslim Educational Society purchased three and half plots from the City Council adjacent to the Masjid site for R4 600.00. The decision was taken to first complete the construction of the Masjid before embarking on building the Madrassa complex.
At the time there were two societies; Primrose Park Muslim Educational Society and Islamic Society Manenberg working in close harmony to make this all possible. In May, 1978, both societies became known as Jamiya Tus Sabr (The Society of Patience).
After the Masjid was completed in 1976, the Madrassa moved from the secular school across the road to the Masjid. The Madrassa project commenced in November 1985 with an accumulated amount of R90 000.00. With the tremendous assistance from the community and from afar, our students could move to the ground floor of the Madrassa in January 1990. In 1993 both the Masjid and Madrassa was completed in its entirety.
